Rumors

• Brendan Haywood's name continues to pop up in trade rumors due to his large, non-guaranteed contract. But if the Cavalier is waived before Aug. 1, the longtime center has no plans of retiring, according to ESPN.com's Dave McMenamin.

• Eric Bledsoe has been a mainstay of the rumor mill for weeks, but Steve Kyler of Basketball Insiders reports the Suns are set on moving a different starter: Markieff Morris. 

• The Mavs are targeting another big man for their free-agent haul. According to Michael Scotto of Sheridan Hoops, Dallas has reached out to ex-Wizard Kevin Seraphin, who has also received interest from the Lakers, Wizards, Spurs and Suns.

• Joe Johnson trade talks have stalled, according to SI.com's Chris Mannix, but the Cavaliers and Nets are still in discussions. The subject of the negotiations? Sasha Kaun, the 30-year-old ex-Jayhawk who is currently playing in Russia. Cleveland owns his rights. 

• 2014 lottery pick Dario Saric wanted to join the 76ers this season, according to David Pick of Basketball Insiders, but couldn't because his contract had no out-clause.

• Mavericks owner Mark Cuban was reportedly fined $25,000 for discussing his team's agreement with DeAndre Jordan before the end of the league's moratorium on player business. 

• The Cavaliers remain intent on re-signing point guard Matthew Dellavedova even after agreeing to a deal with Mo Williams, ESPN's Marc Stein reports. Dellavedova is a restricted free agent.

• Let the chatter about next off-season begin—if it already hasn't. While the Clippers might struggle to replace DeAndre Jordan this season, they reportedly have their eyes on a different big man next summer. According to Chris Palmer, there is mutual interest between the Clips and Kevin Durant.

Dallas continues to try and fill out its roster after luring DeAndre Jordan away from the Clippers. The Mavericks are pursuing a sign-and-trade to acquire free agent point guard Jeremy Lin from the Lakers, according to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski.
