• Report: Jazz listening to offers, but not shopping Kanter. Despite his trade demand last week, the Utah Jazz are not looking to deal center Enes Kanter before Thursday's deadline, though they are listening to offers, Michael Scotto of Sheridan Hoops reports.
Sources: Suns want to keep and re-sign Dragic, but to even consider a deal, they would minimally want player w/ All-Star potential and pick.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojVerticalNBA) February 17, 2015

Executives say Utah has significant threshold for Enes Kanter deal - including young player, 1st rounder, etc - but several teams pursuing.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojVerticalNBA) February 17, 2015
• Report: Nuggets open to trading Lawson (CSNNE). Multiple league sources told CSNNE.com on Monday that Denver is looking to trade Lawson, who ranks among the league leaders in assists (10.1) per game this season.
• Blazers reportedly eyeing two Nuggets (CSNNW). Here is what’s known: the Blazers like Afflalo, but would prefer Chandler. Afflalo is known as a decent locker room guy, can knockdown an open shot, and he’s a veteran, which Terry Stotts likes. Should the Nuggets asking price seem fair, and Chandler is a no-go, it won’t be a surprise to see Afflalo in black and red.
Bulls like roster but would add shooter. Won't trade a big for a small. Won't trade future 1st. Will check buyout list for open roster spot.— K.C. Johnson (@KCJHoop) February 16, 2015
