Carmelo Anthony never said he didn't want to play with Chris Paul. But he called the recent report that the Knicks and Clippers might consider an Anthony-for-Blake Griffin trade "silly and stupid."
Clippers coach Doc Rivers also used the word "stupid" four times in reaction to the ESPN report, which said the two sides haven't had any discussions.
The 76ers have waived JaVale McGee.
McGee, oddly enough, came out and said he wanted to be a "mentor" to the young players on the Sixers after arriving at the trade deadline. Just a few weeks late, McGee will be packing his bags, hoping he picks up with a contender. The seven-footer reportedly will not have to give back any money in a buyout, and is owed the remainder of his $11.2 million contract, along with $12 million next year. Analysis: Spencer Silva
