Here is our daily look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT).
The Clippers and Timberwolves have some interest in Jamal Crawford of Portland and trade talks may follow.

Beno Udrih wouldn’t mind a trade out of Milwaukee. Actually, he’d really like one.
