The Milwaukee Bucks are listening to offers for the 10th pick in Thursday's NBA draft and are open to making it part of a bigger deal, league sources say.
The Bucks also would not be opposed to including Corey Maggette in a trade. However, Milwaukee, is looking to upgrade its team, a team source said, and not merely dump salary.
Maggette, who will turn 32 in November, averaged 12 points a game last season.
The Denver Nuggets are interested in picking up a top 10 pick and have canvassed the first 10 teams' interest in trading for point guard Ray Felton, sources said.
Among a flurry of predraft trade talks around the league Wednesday, the San Antonio Spurs have discussed moving Tony Parker to either the Sacramento Kings or Toronto Raptors in exchange for their first-round pick.
The Spurs have their eye on Washington State's Klay Thompson, sources say.
Both the Kings and Raptors could take Parker's contract without trading matching salaries. The Kings have the necessary cap room and the Raptors have a trade exception from the deal sending Chris Bosh to Miami last summer.
Parker has spent his entire NBA career with the Spurs, arriving in San Antonio at the age of 19 and winning the starting job that season. He turned 29 last month and begins a four-year, $50 million extension next season.
He averaged 17.5 points and 6.6 assists last season.
Elsewhere, the Minnesota Timberwolves rejected the Los Angeles Lakers' offer of forward Lamar Odom for their No. 2 overall pick in the draft, according to the Los Angeles Times.
