The 31-year-old PF is playing on a $8.95 million expiring contract, and with the Bulls considering a rebuild, his name has been in the rumor mill for a while. You would think that Gibson would get a short-term boost in OKC with Enes Kanter (arm) on the shelf, but the big man went through a non-contact practice on Wednesday and is said to be nearing a return. A trade would likely hurt Gibson's value, but Bobby Portis would instantly become relevant since coach Fred Hoiberg said that he is officially ahead of Nikola Mirotic on the depth chart.

Mannix notes that the Heat "appear interested in moving contracts." Ellington has a non-guaranteed $6.3 million salary next season, while McRoberts has a $6.0 million player option. There are zero teams linked to this 'package', for good reason, and we're not reading much into it with the deadline less than 24 hours away.
