The World Famous LayupDrill Rumor Mill

I often like to think that out fans at the World Famous LayupDrill Rumor Mill enjoy our daily updates that compile the biggest rumors and headlines from around the NBA in a few short paragraphs. Well, as part of doing my job in reporting rumors, I feel it is only right to report rumor killers. This will be the first in a series of posts that will come as needed to diffuse any rumors from previous days that were floating around.

1. Wizards fans, don’t worry. JaVale McGee isn’t going anywhere.

Michael Lee(no relation) of the Washington Post
reported in his column this morning that there is no truth to reports from earlier in the week about a potential Wizards-Thunder trade that involved the lanky big man. While many feel that McGee will draw interest from teams, the Wizards contend they are not moving him.

2. Phil and Andrew have no beef.

This wasn’t out long at all. The Los Angeles Times had originally reported that there was a lack of communication between Lakers coach Phil Jackson and center Andrew Bynum, in which Bynum was upset over playing time. Jackson spoke to the media yesterday and said that the reason Bynum has not been playing has been due to his conditioning and nothing else.

3. Clippers are ready for Blake.

Marcus Camby spoke with the media yesterday, and explained how excited he was for the opportunity to play alongside Blake Griffin.

“I like what we are building in LA with the addition of Blake, and with the depth and experience we have," Camby said. "we should be able to make a playoff push.”
