NBA Rumors for Saturday, Feb. 6

InsideHoops NBA rumors updated 8:00 p.m. ET. More stories and other news also appears on the InsideHoops basketball blog, including most of our live updates during the day. Note that NBA trade rumors pick up steam leading to the 2016 NBA trade deadline (February 18 at 3pm ET). Other key NBA rumors-related dates are the 2016 Playoff Eligibility Waiver deadline (March 1) and playoff roster deadline (April 15 at 3pm ET).

nba rumors The Brooklyn Nets will begin formally interviewing candidates for their general manager vacancy on Monday, sources told ESPN.com. Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov will be in attendance, as will the other members of the team's GM search committee: Nets chairman of the board of directors Dmitry Razumov, trusted Russian basketball confidant Sergey Kushchenko, CEO of Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment Brett Yormark and president of ONEXIM Sports & Entertainment Irina Pavlova. ESPN.com

As ESPN.com first reported Jan. 13, two-time executive of the year Bryan Colangelo, who has a wealth of experience at the top of an organization, is a strong candidate for the position. ESPN.com

The score, in the fourth quarter of the Nuggets game on Friday night against the Bulls, was frequently wrong. Nuggets coach Michael Malone noticed and tried to help, but didn’t want his players caught up in worrying about it. “I don’t know what was going on at the scorer’s table, but you’ve just got to concentrate on the task at hand,” Malone said. “For me it’s tough because I want to know is it a one possession game or a two possession game, what the right score strategy-wise. But for our players, don’t worry about that. Worry about playing and making plays on the floor.” Denver Post

nba rumors An MRI performed today on Jimmy Butler’s left knee confirmed that he sustained a knee strain in the second quarter of last night’s game against the Denver Nuggets. The timeline for his return to play will be determined by further evaluation in Chicago and his response to treatment. InsideHoops

As expected, the Jimmy Butler knee injury was more scare than heartache, as the Bulls announced on Saturday that an MRI showed that the left knee is a strain with no structural damage. Chicago Sun-Times

nba rumors Knicks president Phil Jackson’s boycott of the media — he hasn’t spoken since late September, three days before training camp — was barely tolerable when things were going decently. Now Jackson’s silence is reprehensible for 60 million reasons. Fisher could use getting some of the heat off of the coach. And Knicks fans deserve so much better than an absentee, invisible president. NY Post

Jackson’s new roster has proven no margin for error, and he has a chance to clear more cap space at the Feb. 18 trade deadline. At full strength, they appear a respectably mediocre .500 bunch but without the depth or wherewithal to withstand injuries. Arron Afflalo and Porzingis are not No. 1 scoring options. Even in his bounce-back 17-point, 10-rebound, six-block outing vs. Memphis on Friday, Porzingis was again no factor down the stretch, committing one of his three turnovers. NY Post

nba rumors Kevin Love and Matthew Dellavedova will both miss Saturday's game against the New Orleans Pelicans. Love is dealing with a bruised thigh suffered Friday night and Dellavedova is missing his third game with a sore left hamstring. Akron Beacon Journal

Ish Smith: The point guard suffered a sprained left ankle late in Friday’s setback at the Washington Wizards. Rookie T.J. McConnell will start in his place. InsideHoops
