Tracy McGrady says Detroit is top of his list to re-sign with this summer as a free agent. Just nod your head and move on. He also disses practice. That's right, practice. Not a game. Not a game, practice. Deja vu.
Woah, he's halfway there, oh, living on a prayer: David Kahn says he still expects Ricky Rubio to sign with the Wolves next season.
The Spurs signed Danny Green for the rest of the season. Green had a few seasons with upside for LeBron's Cavaliers before he was jettisoned to make room for Antawn Jamison.

Andre Iguodala is dealing with a knee condition, the same that kept Chase Utley out of spring training.

Joe Johnson is rocking a headband, for health reasons.
