Alan Anderson exploded for a career-high 24 points against the Rockets on Sunday, adding two rebounds, two assists and three 3-pointers in 25 minutes.

Anderson put up a dud in his return on Friday with just two points, but he was a crucial part of Sunday's win. He was the starter before going down with a foot injury, so he's back on the radar in standard leagues.

Nick Calathes will be suspended 20 games for violation of the NBA's Anti-Drug Policy.

The suspension starts now which means he won't be see postseason action. Calathes tested positive for Tamoxifen, an over-the-counter athletic supplement. He was solid this year and filled in admirably while Mike Conley was out earlier this season, averaging 14.7 points, 4.7 boards, 4.9 assists, 2.6 steals and 1.3 triples in his seven starts. Beno Udrih will back up Mike Conley, who figures to get more than 40 minutes per night vs. OKC in round one.

The Jazz will not bring Ty Corbin back for the 2014-15 season, according to Mitch Lawrence of the New York Daily News.

It seemed like Corbin was on thin ice considering how his team was the worst in the Western Conference. Plus, he wasn't even a lock to make it through the season in the last year of his deal. With Corbin out, the team doesn't seem to have any candidates that jump right out, but there should be some reports in the coming days.

General manager Mitch Kupchak said on Friday that Pau Gasol is a "priority" this offseason.

"If you look at the free agents, there probably isn't anyone as good as Pau on the board," Kupchak said. While this isn't a surprising quote, the Lakers should certainly look to bring Pau back despite their ending result on the standings. He finished with averages of 17.4 points, 9.7 boards and 1.5 blocks, so he'll be a high pick in fantasy leagues next year.

Joakim Noah (personal) did not practice Friday.

Noah was excused for bereavement reasons. He's in New York, but is expected to rejoin the team in Chicago Saturday. The Bulls open up their first-round series against the Wizards at 7pm ET on Sunday night.

Duke SF Rodney Hood has declared for the NBA draft.

Hood joins fellow Blue Devil Jabari Parker in fleeing Coach K's program. But unlike Parker, Hood is merely a borderline lottery pick at best. In his first season at Duke after transferring from Mississippi State, Hood averaged 16.1 points, 3.9 rebounds and 2.0 assists while showing excellent range (2.0 3-pointers per game on 42.0 percent shooting). He needs to prove he can guard NBA wings in order to raise his draft stock.

Thaddeus Young said it's "a possibility" that he'll ask management to trade him this summer.

Young has repeatedly said all he wants to do is win, and the Sixers are at least two years away from doing that. The 25-year-old is under contract for $9.1 million next season and then has a player option for $9.7 million in 2015-16. Given those reasonable cap hits and Young's unique ability to score without plays called for him, he'd attract plenty of attention on the trade market. Thadd averaged career-highs in points (17.9), assists (2.3), steals (2.1) and 3-pointers (1.1) this season.

Kentucky G/F James Young has declared for the NBA draft.

Young averaged 14.3 points and 4.3 rebounds as a freshman, shooting just 40.7 percent from the field. But he oozes athletic upside as an extremely long wing player that has extended range (34.9 percent 3-point shooting). At 6'7/202, Young is a candidate to go in the back part of the lottery.

The Bulls, Rockets, Lakers and Clippers are among the teams expected to pursue unrestricted free agent Carmelo Anthony.

The Knicks can offer Anthony a five-year, $129 contract. The max he can get from other teams is four years and $95 million. But the Knicks have almost no room to reshape their roster, so re-signing there would not give Anthony his best shot at his stated goal of winning. If he's serious about competing for a title, Melo will take a massive pay cut and sign with Chicago, which could field a starting five of Derrick Rose, Jimmy Butler, Anthony, Taj Gibson and Joakim Noah.

Al Horford (pectoral) is out for the entire preseason.

Fans were holding out hope that Horford could make a return if the Hawks upset the Pacers and advance to Round 2. It's not happening. Horford has torn each of his pectorals in the last three years and this tear is considered more severe. He's concentrating on getting healthy for 2014-15, where he'll be a risk/reward kind of fantasy play. Horford was averaging 18.6 points, 8.4 rebounds and 1.5 blocks on 56.7 percent shooting in the 29 games before his December injury.

Duke F Jabari Parker has declared for the NBA Draft.

He did it in impressive fashion, too, posting a column and video through Sports Illustrated with the news. He's got the potential to be the No. 1 pick in the draft and is one of just a few college players these days who is already a household name. And all that talk about him returning to school next year? Much ado about nothing.

Jordan Crawford scored a career-high 41 points along with five rebounds, two assists and a steal in Wednesday's win over the Nuggets.

You could see him having a big game with the Warriors resting the regulars, but this was better than any of us could have imagined. Harrison Barnes chipped in with 30, while Randy Foye scored 32 and had 11 assists for the Nuggets in the loss. The Warriors are healthy, with the exception of Andrew Bogut, and ready to take on the Clippers in Round 1 of the playoffs. And that, our friends, is a wrap on the 2013-14 regular season.
