NBA rumors and buzz for Tuesday, Feb. 24
Last week's trade deadline provided a slew of last-minute moves as contenders bolstered their rosters for playoff runs and several teams made moves to set themselves up for the future. The rumors season isn't over, however, as players can still sign with teams until the end of the month and be eligible to play in the postseason. Here are a few of the latest NBA rumors:
Spoelstra said the team doesn't have an exact release date for Bosh, but the power forward is "getting a little bit better" after being ruled out for the season because of blood clots on his lung, Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press reports.
Davis is expected to miss a few games after re-injuring his right shoulder on Saturday against the Miami Heat, ESPN reports. It is the same shoulder that caused him to sit out the All-Star Game earlier this month. Davis has been dealing with the injury since hurting it Feb. 7 against the Chicago Bulls.
The Cleveland Cavaliers announced on Tuesday that Marion will likely need at least two weeks to recover from a hip injury. In 50 games this season, Marion has averaged 4.9 points and 3.5 rebounds in 20.0 minutes.
After being released by the Philadelphia 76ers last week, Kirilenko has signed a contract with CSKA Moscow. He has played for the team on two prior occasions, most recently during the lockout shortened 2011-2012 season.
The Brooklyn Nets have signed Robinson to a 10-day deal after he agreed to a buyout with the Denver Nuggets. Robinson, the No. 5 pick in the 2012 draft, averaged 3.6 points and 4.2 rebounds for the Portland Trail Blazers this season.
Miller signed a contract with Brose Baskets Bamberg. In five games this season with the New Orleans Pelicans, Miller scored two points in 43 minutes. He was a second-round pick in 2012 and won a national championship with Anthony Davis at Kentucky.
Former Dallas Mavericks point guard Gal Mekel has signed a contract in Russia, ESPN's Marc Stein reports. Mekel was set to sign with the Indiana Pacers earlier this season, but a visa issue prevented the move.
