Here's some other news and notes from around the NBA:

Duncan, Garnett took less money

Tim Duncan and Kevin Garnett both took less money on their contracts this summer to help their teams, but also to gain control of their surroundings.

According to Mark Deeks of Sham Sports (via ProBasketballTalk), both Duncan and Garnett received full no-trade clauses in their deals. Their deals make only four players in the NBA that have full no-trade clauses in their contracts, with Kobe Bryant and Dirk Nowitzki being the other two.

Garnett signed a three-year, $34 million deal with Boston on July 3 and Duncan signed a similar three-year, $36 million extension on July 10 to stay with San Antonio.
