Thursday News and Notes from Around the League

Bob Donnan-US PRESSWIRE

- During an otherwise monotonous portion of the offseason, the Detroit Pistons and Milwaukee Bucks swapped underachieving point guards, as Milwaukee sign-and-traded Brandon Jennings to Detroit for Brandon Knight, Khris Middleton, and Slava Kravstov. Jennings will receive a three-year, $24 million deal from the Pistons.

- The Dallas Mavericks signed 4-year veteran DeJuan Blair, formerly a San Antonio Spur. Blair, 24, has been productive as a back up big man for San Antonio, but received inconsistent playing time due to defensive flaws and coaching preferences. The Mavericks also added Devin Harris on a one-year minimum deal. Harris had previously agreed to a more lucrative contract with the Mavericks that was cancelled due to an apparent toe injury.

- Terrence Jones, for a reason not yet known, was reportedly arrested in Portland, Oregon for stomping on the leg of a sleeping homeless man, continuing an offseason of poor decisions for the Terrence’s of the NBA.

- In a time of great transition for the NBA players’ union, LeBron James is “mulling a bid for the union presidency.”

- The Pelicans have signed rookie center Jeff Withey, acquired from Portland, to his rookie contract. As per team policy, the terms of the contract were not released.
