The Memphis Commercial Appeal reports that the Grizzlies have been approached by several teams interested in acquiring their No. 2 overall pick in the NBA Draft.
The story mentions the Boston Celtics, Houston Rockets and New York Knicks as the names rumored to be asking about the pick.
Of those three teams, only the Knicks have a first-round pick (No. 8 overall) they could possibly use as part of a trade. Boston and Houston would probably have to part with some established talent to sweeten the deal for Memphis.

The Bergen Record reports that the New Jersey Nets have exchanged trade proposals with the Houston Rockets, with a specific scenario sending Vince Carter and Josh Boone to the Rockets in exchange for Ron Artest , Luther Head and Carl Landry .

Sources tell the Bergen Record that the Spurs are willing to send Roger Mason, Jr. , George Hill and Bruce Bowen to the Nets in order to get Carter, although such a deal would require the Nets to make some additional moves to clear space on the roster.
