tonight against Detroit - loss 95-76

Around the NBA
Orlando leads the league with 33-8 record – 7 game win streak – impressive wins over Atlanta (back to back), and west coast swing that included San Antonio, Lakers and Nuggets.

Memphis signs Darius Miles to another 10 day – looking at his stats – no games since 2005 (is that right?), 5 games with Memphis this year, 5pts in 9 minutes and 2 rebounds. - Miles is back from major knee surgery. His return to the league means his contract should count toward
Portland's salary cap.

Marbury says he has a commitment from 1 team and is willing to accept $1 million dollar less bye out from the Knicks

The Dallas Mavericks have added another shooting guard by trading backup center DeSagana Diop to Charlotte Bobcats for guard Matt Carroll and backup center Ryan Hollins

Pure Rumors

Miami Herald - Miami Heat continues to consider a deal for Jermaine O'Neal, Miami has been giving thought to other Shawn Marion trade scenarios - Dallas small forward Josh Howard
Several teams have inquired about Marion, who's unlikely to re-sign here, but it's not certain a deal will happen. The Heat considers center its No. 1 need and O'Neal as the best center available but remains concerned about his sore right knee (which has sidelined him 11 games this season) and the $23 million he's due in 2009-10, the last year of his contract. It's 50-50 whether Miami will accept Toronto's offer of O'Neal for Marion & guard Marcus Banks

Magic GM Otis Smith said the reports coming out of Boston that the Celtics asked about acquiring SG J.J. Redick are not true.

Upcoming for the Raptors
Friday in Chicago
Monday Sacramento at the ACC
Wednesday in New Jersey
