Terrence Williams may see the floor, Yao Ming may not retire, and Rodney Stuckey likes unicorns (not really), all in today's Shootaround.

Terrence Williams may finally get some burn in Houston. We remain skeptical, since two different coaches have yanked his playing time away. Surprising fall for the swing man.
The Kings may be in a selling mood, but don't count Omri Casspi among the items on the front lawn.
Even after surgery.... again, Yao Ming may not be planning on retiring. Worse still than retiring though would be being one of those players who can't find a team to sign you because of your injury concerns. We hope the best for Yao, but in the event that his career can't get righted, we hope he is smart enough to take the high road out.
Nets fans had low expectations of Sasha Vujacic when he arrived in the Terrence Williams trade. But he's making a believer out of them now. He hit the game winner the other night in a huge home win over the Bulls.
Need4Sheed exposes Rodney Stuckey's twitter account as a bot with the headline: "Rodney Stuckey: 'I like unicorns, Cotton Candy, Star Trek and Harry Potter movies.'"
Carlos Boozer was not exactly thrilled with being benched for the final 14 minutes in the Bulls' loss to the Nets the other night.
In short, the Magic have a very balanced offense since the mega-trade.
Mayor Kevin Johnson in Sacramento put together a task force towards getting a new arena. It erupted into a verbal skirmish this week. Yeah, things are going that well.
Tyler Hansbrough will start at power forward for the Pacers, a sign of the desperation mounting in Indiana.
Suddenly Jodie Meeks being back in the lineup is a big deal. Strange times.
