Here are some tidbits for today in the NBA blogosphere.

Carlos Boozer To Stay Put

The Dallas Mavericks and the New York Knicks have already told the world that they are interested in pursuing Utah Jazz’s power forward Carlos Boozer. The Desert News reports that the Mavs a great chance of getting Boozer and look to acquire him.

But as of right now, nothing has happened. It seems that Boozer will be staying put…for now. I think he may end up with a different team easily before the NBA season starts. You’ll see.

ESPN says that the Knicks are working out on a sign-and-trade deal involving power forward David Lee and Utah Jazz’s superstar athlete. We’ll see how things turn out, but right now, this is all I can offer to you.

Monta Ellis To Be Traded

The Golden State Warriors may trade point guard Monta Ellis. Guess who decided to go for him? The Dallas Mavericks. Jeez, lay off the acquistions Dallas. Ever since what happened with the Marcin Gortat rodeo, the Mavs have been crazy with off-season adds.

But sadly, none have been a success. But hey, Ellis could be a good deal with the Mavs having an aging point guard in Jason Kidd, who can retire at any minute. Maybe even right now.

Heat Doing An “Audition”

Blazersedge.com says the Miami Heat have “auditioned” free agent Shavlik Randolph to play for the team. Last year, he was seen playing for the Portland Trailblazers (no gimme). Let’s see how he does.

Rudy Gay Wants To Stay

Memphis Blue Bears reports that the Memphis Grizzlies small forward Rudy Gay wants to stay in Memphis. He will be a free agent next summer and wants to sign an extension by October 31. Hope all is well with both sides of this outcome.

Mikki Moore Signs with Warriors

Center Mikki Moore has signed a $1.3M deal with the Golden State Warriors. Moore played about half of a season for the Boston Celtics during the 2008-09 season. Before the Celtics, he played with the Sacramento Kings. More struggled last year, but hopefully, an improvement will come for this year.
