The Clippers reportedly haven't received many enticing offers for DeAndre Jordan.

The Rockets, Bucks, Trail Blazers and Wizards have all expressed interest in Jordan, but none of those trade talks have gotten "anywhere near serious," according to sources Zach Lowe. The Rockets got close in the past, but with how well Clint Capela has been playing this season, there's not much incentive to bring on DJ. Portland has reportedly "backed away" from Jordan for now, and the Bucks and Wizards simply might not have the pieces to get a deal done.

The Trail Blazers have reportedly engaged with the Clippers in trade talks regarding DeAndre Jordan.

Portland, Milwaukee and Cleveland have all reached out to Los Angeles regarding Jordan's availability, but thus far, the Clippers have not received a proposal that they find "seriously tempting," according to sources of Marc Stein of the New York Times. Jordan could be one of the biggest names moved at the deadline, although with the Clippers currently sitting on the No. 8 seed out West, there's less incentive to move him.

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson kept his foot on the gas on Saturday vs. the Pacers, finishing the overtime loss with 18 points, eight rebounds, three assists, a steal, and a block on 7-of-18 shooting.

Although 18 points on 18 shots isn't exactly ideal, RHJ deserves credit for another big game in the second of a back-to-back after delivering in a major way on Friday vs. Washington. Hollis-Jefferson has been an asset for anyone fortunate enough to steal him on draft day, and he's done a really nice job proving himself as an NBA player since his rookie season. In related news, the Blazers would probably love to undo Hollis-Jefferson for Mason Plumlee trade right about now.

Carmelo Anthony said he has not met with Knicks management this summer.

Anthony declined to comment on the specifics of his current situation with the Knicks, only saying that the past 12 months have been an "emotional rollercoaster." Recent reports have indicated that Melo is uninterested in waiving his no-trade clause to go to Cleveland or Portland, which essentially leaves OKC and Houston as the only realistic landing spots, with Houston being the odds-on favorite.

Carmelo Anthony has made it clear to New York management that he no longer wants to be a Knick, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

"Carmelo Anthony has made it clear to [the Knicks]: I want to go to Houston, I am not interested in talking to you about being reincorporated back into this New York roster," said Woj. "Houston is now prepared for the fact that these negotiations with the Knicks could run through August, September, into possibly the start of training camp." Cleveland has been rumored to have an interest in Anthony, but they can't really offer New York anything they're interested in, and Melo won't waive his no-trade clause to go to Portland, so it seems all but a certainty that Anthony is headed for a reunion with Mike D'Antoni in Houston.

Knicks' president Steve Mills did not mention Carmelo Anthony when listing players he's looking to build around.

Mills would only say that the Knicks future "may be with Carmelo or it may be without Carmelo," and that he would not pursue a buyout, so essentially Melo's only way out of New York will be via trade. Thus far he's been linked to Houston, Cleveland and Portland, and as of right now, the Rockets look like the frontrunners to land his services.

Blazers beat writer Jason Quick reports that there is "no way" LaMarcus Aldridge will return to Portland via a trade.

Aldridge is said to be unhappy in San Antonio and his name has surfaced in various trade rumors. This doesn't mean that he won't be moved, but the scenario involving Portland has no legs.

Jordan Bell had a workout with the Trail Blazers on Monday and said he believes he'd be a good fit with the team.

"Obviously, the [Blazers’] bigs weren’t as tough this year, in my opinion, so I think I could bring that dog to this team. Be the tough guy on defense," said Bell. "Exactly what I did in college is exactly what teams are going to ask me to do. They are not going to ask me to stop shooting the ball, because I already don’t shoot the ball. They are just going to ask me to keep defending, blocking shots and playing within myself." Portland could use some more help at the four-spot, so maybe they look Bell's way when they come on the board with their No. 26 pick.

Jarrett Allen is scheduled for a solo workout with the Trail Blazers on Monday.

Allen put in averages of 13.4 points, 8.4 rebounds and 1.5 blocks per game during his one-and-done season with the Longhorns, and he figures to be right within Portland's range on draft day. He's capable of scoring with his back to the basket due to his length and impressive footwork, and is also an excellent finisher on the pick and roll, although he does need to pack on some muscle and work on finishing through traffic.

T.J. Leaf will work out for the Trail Blazers on Wednesday.

Leaf led the Bruins in scoring during his one-and-done season with UCLA, compiling averages of 16.3 points, 8.2 boards, 2.4 assists and 1.1 blocks per game. He's not the most physical player, but he has nice size for the power forward position at 6'10" and 225 pounds and is an above average athlete. Portland could use some help at the four-spot, so Leaf could be an option for them when they come on the board with their No. 20 overall selection on draft day.

Jawun Evans reportedly has workouts scheduled with Portland, Oklahoma City and Utah.

Evans put in averages of 19.0 points, 6.5 dimes, 1.1 triples, 1.7 steals and 2.8 turnovers during his sophomore season at Oklahoma State, and while he is a bit undersized and lacks explosive athleticism, he's able to make up for that with his strength, solid footwork and a high basketball IQ. He's particularly adept at running the pick-and-roll, and he's currently projected to come off the board in the 30-range.
