Stevenson has Lincoln on throat, LeBron on brain

Bob Finnan of The News-Herald reports: Wizards swingman Mike Miller wore James' Nike shoes to practice and was told by teammate DeShawn Stevenson, "We don't wear these around here."

James said he didn't care.

"Mike is a good friend of mine," he said. "He named his son after my best friend, Maverick (Carter). We have a good history."

James said Miller should lace up his sneakers, though.

"For an unathletic white guy, these are the best shoes to wear," James said.

Report: Smith headed back to Cleveland

The New York Post reports that Joe Smith -- whose contract was recently bought out by the Oklahoma City Thunder -- might be on the verge of re-joining the Cleveland Cavaliers once he clears waivers.

LeBron James
went on record on Monday to say he was in favor of the Cavs picking up Smith again, giving positive reviews to Smith as a teammate and for his work helping Cleveland down the stretch last year.

The Post also reported that the Lakers and the Hornets are expected to make runs at Smith, but that Cleveland is his expected destination.

Several teams express interest in Moore

The Boston Globe reports that the Celtics are among many teams that have expressed interest in center Mikki Moore , recently waived by the Sacramento Kings to make room for an influx of trade acquisitions.

Moore clears waivers on Monday to become an unrestricted free agent, at which point he is expected to announce his decision on where he'll play next.

"A lot of teams are very excited about him, so it's a tough decision for Mikki," agent Mark Bartelstein said.

Bartelstein told the Rocky Mountain News that the Denver Nuggets are one of the other teams interested in Moore, while the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that the Cavaliers have expressed mind interest in him.

Cavs may not pursue Miller


The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that the Cavaliers may not remain in the bidding to get Brad Miller from the Kings, due at least partially to the fact that Cleveland seems to be doing fine with the roster it has.

The Cavs have recently taken the stance that they're in good shape, especially following their success on the road out west. The report says that not only are the Cavs considering staying out of the running for Miller, but they might not make any roster moves at all before the Feb. 19 trade deadline.

The Cavs are just one of the teams that have had discussions with the Kings about Miller. The Sacramento Bee reported on Tuesday that Miller could be headed to the Miami Heat.

Mutombo hopes to return in two weeks

Veteran NBA center Dikembe Mutombo is currently without a team, but the free agent says he's received interest from several squads, and he hopes to sign and be back on the court within two weeks.

The 42-year-old Mutombo told the Boston Globe on Sunday that the Celtics, Heat, Spurs and other teams have expressed interest in adding him to their rosters. The South Florida Sun-Sentinel said on Monday that Heat officials would neither confirm nor deny their interest in Mutombo. The Heat are also waiting on the possible return of Alonzo Mourning from last year's knee injury. Mourning was in the Heat locker room before Monday's game.

The News-Herald in Ohio reported that while the Cavaliers don't appear to have major interest in Mutombo, they have also not ruled him out. The story noted that if Zydrunas Ilgauskas were going to miss a considerable amount of time, then it may be more attractive to the Cavs to pick up Mutombo.

Cavs may be reluctant to change roster

The Morning Journal in Cleveland reports that the Cavaliers may not be willing to mess with a good thing, in regards to changing the roster before the NBA trade deadline in a couple of months.

"We like our team," GM Danny Ferry said. "We like continuity. We're always exploring ways how to improve our organization."

Ferry wouldn't rule out a trade, however, if the right deal came along.

"If there's an opportunity that makes us better, we still have to do our job."
