The Thunder re-assigned Cole Aldrich to the D-League Tulsa 66ers. Hope he wasn't getting used to those nice charter flights. 

J.J. Redick wants a shot... (get it? A shot?) at the three-point contest. I'll show myself out. 

Stan Van Gundy thinks the referees are targeting Dwight Howard. Maybe he wouldn't be so easy to lock onto if he wasn't waving his hands and yelling all the time. But hey, just a thought. 

Hakeem Olajuwon now has his own clothing line. Rumor has it that Dwight Howard is trying to model for it,but he keeps putting the clothes on just a little bit off and looks awkward in them.

Four development teams submitted proposals for a new Sacramento arena. If none of these work, things in Sacramento as fas as the NBA is concerned are going to get dicey. 

O.J. Mayo is reportedly off the market in Memphis. But with Zach Randolph, Marc Gasol, and Mayo all due extensions in the next 18 months, something will likely have to give, and Mayo's the most likely transient. For now, at least, the Grizzlies are committed to what they've said is their plan, to keep the starting five together.

Tom Ziller of SBNation.com incinerates the contraction suggestion, as it should be. 

Dwight Howard is having his techs judged by Gilbert Arenas, and should he find them "dumb", Howard has to pay the team $200.
