Here are the latest news and rumors around the league: 
The Brooklyn Nets are rumored to be pursuing Kentucky head coach John Calipari for their vacant head coaching position. Calipari says it will take a 10-year, $120 million deal to get him to leave the Wildcats.

Lamar Odom will not face charges for his stay at a Nevada brothel that led to a drug overdose.

Los Angeles Clippers guard Chris Paul and Cavs forward LeBron James were named Western and Eastern Conference Players of the Week, respectively.

Pelicans forward Anthony Davis is questionable to play with a back injury. Forward Quincy Pondexter will miss the rest of the season after undergoing knee surgery.

Washington Wizards center Marcin Gortat missed last night's win over the Chicago Bulls with a sore left knee. He is listed as questionable going forward.
