Leon Powe could be a Grizzly, Raymond Felton could be a sidekick, Andris Biedrins could be a volcano, and Dwight Howard could be an MVP, all in today's Shootaround.

Leon Powe visited Memphis Wednesday which could help towards the Grizzlies signing him. With Hasheem Thabeet shipped off to Memphis, the Grizzlies need a frontcourt reserve like Powe, even if only for limited minutes. 

The Kings owners, the Maloofs, met with mayor Kevin Johnson on Wednesday. Typical political talk afterwards and no real progress. 

Hassan Whiteside's season is over and he'll have surgery on Friday. Because, you know, the Kings need bad luck right now. 

In case you missed it, Ken Berger talks to Chris Paul about his knee, New York, and the Hornets' struggles. 

George Karl thinks having Raymond Felton and Ty Lawson at once is a good problem to have

Doc Rivers has no problem with the "super teams." Probably because he helped form the first one in Boston in 2007 that set off this whole thing. 

Donnie Walsh is committed to Chauncey Billups for the long-term. Which is odd because Chauncey Billups' long-term isn't that long. 

Andris Biedrins blew up at his coach when Smart told him he was starting Ekpe Udoh, and almost didn't come out to play. Easy solution for you, there, Andris. Play better. 

There's a lot of concern about DeMarcus Cousins having hit the rookie wall

Dwight Howard says most MVP's are picked before the season starts. If he keeps playing the way he has lately, that's going to change.

Shootaround 3.3.11:Shoulda read da article better

You are wrong regarding Andris blowing up at Smart for the benching. If you actually read the article and watched the pregame before the W's vs Wizzards, you would have read and heard that Andris was ok with being benched. He knows his problem is mental and needs to relax and watch the game from the bench to refresh himself.
