The Kings are working on a buyout with Aaron Brooks, according to @mr_jasonjones. Rockets could be interested, they pursued him this summer.
Raja Bell will not take buyout from Utah Jazz, agent tells @sltrib. Buyout was predicated on finding offer from another team, Bell did not.

Only teams below the cap max (58M) can put out claims to pick him up off the waiver wire. After that, he effectively becomes a FA and can choose any contract to join any team. All we have is the remaining mini-MLE (roughly 800K) to offer or a vet. min of about 1.2M (but will be less since it will be prorated).
Would be nice, but we ain't getting him....plus if Woj says Houston is likely to get him, dude is joining McHale's navy.

MDA will play 9 guys, and that's already more then average for him: Nash/Blake/Kobe/Meeks/Metta/Jamison/Clark/Dwight/Gasol. Solid rotation. If we had Hill, he wouldn't know what to do with all those guys.
