After reading today's Basketball Rumors talk on the InsideHoops basketball forum where hardcore fans hang 24/7 talking hoops.

NBA Rumors for Wednesday, Feb. 3

InsideHoops NBA rumors updated 8:00 a.m. ET. More stories and other news also appears on the InsideHoops basketball blog, including most of our live updates during the day. Note that NBA trade rumors pick up steam leading to the 2016 NBA trade deadline (February 18 at 3pm ET). Other key NBA rumors-related dates are the 2016 Playoff Eligibility Waiver deadline (March 1) and playoff roster deadline (April 15 at 3pm ET).

nba rumors Hours earlier, Yahoo Sports reported that the Warriors are determined to recruit Oklahoma City’s All-Star forward Kevin Durant when he becomes a free agent this summer. That much was a well-known fact, but the report went further. According to league sources, Yahoo wrote: “The truth is that (the Warriors are) the most intriguing destination to him. If Durant leaves the Thunder, the Warriors are the significant frontrunners to sign him.” San Francisco Chronicle

Acquiring Durant would almost guarantee losing [Harrison] Barnes, who will be a restricted free agent. The Warriors could withdraw their qualifying offer to Barnes and renounce him or - far less likely - use him in a sign-and-trade deal for Durant. San Francisco Chronicle

“It’s always something, right?” Barnes said. “The first summer it was Dwight (Howard). The next summer it was Kevin Love. Every single year, there’s always been somebody who the Warriors wanted or somebody who wanted to come here. That’s part of the business. That stuff happens." San Francisco Chronicle

nba rumors The Suns' painful season took another blow with a season-ending right foot fracture for small forward T.J. Warren. Warren was bothered by right ankle pain during Wednesday's loss at Cleveland but an X-ray with the Knicks staff in New York was negative so he played, having a 12-point first half but a hobbled second half. He sat out Sunday's loss at Dallas and then had a CT scan that showed a mid-foot fracture that was causing the right ankle pain. Arizona Republic

The Phoenix Suns have added experienced NBA head coach Bob Hill as an assistant coach, the team announced today. “Coach Hill is a creative and innovative teacher of basketball,” said Suns Interim Head Coach Earl Watson. “He brings a wealth of knowledge to our program and will be very beneficial to everyone involved in our basketball family.” InsideHoops

The L.A. Clippers announced today the team has signed forward Jeff Ayres to a second 10-day contract. A five-year NBA veteran, Ayres, 28, has appeared in three games with the Clippers scoring two points and grabbing two rebounds. InsideHoops

Erick Green formerly of the Reno Bighorns and now with the Utah Jazz after signing a 10-day contract on Jan. 26, has been named NBA Development League Player of the Month for games played in January. Green (6-4, 185, Virginia Tech) sparked Reno to a 9-3 month (7-2 in games that he played) averaging 27.6 points, 4.7 assists, 4.1 rebounds and 1.9 assists. InsideHoops
