Spurs listening to offers for veterans (including DeMar DeRozan)

The Spurs are receiving calls on their veteran players who are pending free agents — LaMarcus Aldridge, DeMar DeRozan, Rudy Gay, Trey Lyles and Patty Mills — and are listening to inquiries, sources said. – via Shams Charania @ The Athletic

DeRozan is also playing out the final year of his contract, and sources said he has an interest in playing elsewhere following this season—perhaps with an eye toward the Eastern Conference. DeRozan is quietly having an exceptional season, scoring 20.3 points per game on 49.1 percent shooting and boasting a 7.5-to-1.7 assist-to-turnover ratio. “He’s transformed himself into this swing playmaker,” one team analytics staffer said. – via Jake Fischer @ Bleacher Report

There’s a faction of the Chicago front office that feels adding one piece such as DeRozan could push the Bulls firmly into the postseason, sources said.  – via Jake Fischer @ Bleacher Report

Brad Townsend: Also told that Phoenix is in the post-buyout picture for Aldridge, although Miami and Brooklyn seem to be ahead of the Suns in the pecking order. – via Twitter townbrad
