UPDATE: The Spurs informed DeMar DeRozan earlier today that he would not be traded, according to Yahoo Sports NBA Insider Chris Haynes.

Haynes also reports the Spurs did not make any deal. It remains to be seen what the team does with DeMarre Carroll, who has not suited up for the team since Jan. 8. He could be bought out of his contract.

Not-Spurs related: Pistons reportedly are trading Andre Drummond to Cleveland. Marcus Morris is expected to go to the LA Clippers from the Knicks.

Not-Spurs related: Golden State has traded De’Angelo Russell to Minnesota for Andrew Wiggins and draft picks. Andre Igoudala has been traded from Memphis to Miami.

ESPN’s Bobby Marks said earlier this week a sign-and-trade would be possible with DeMar DeRozan this summer if the Spurs do not trade him by the deadline.

Marks also notes that not many teams will have cap room this summer, which could indicate the Spurs standing pat with DeMar.

Adrian Wojnarowski reports the Spurs have all options on the table with DeRozan and LaMarcus Aldridge, but the sense is they will likely move forward with current group to try and keep their playoff streak alive.

The Spurs could move DeMarre Carroll who signed this offseason, but has not been a part of the rotation. He has been linked to Utah and Milwaukee.

Rudy Gay, Jakob Poeltl and Marco Belinelli have all been mentioned in the rumor mill.

Poeltl will become a restricted free agent this summer and could get a solid deal from another team. ESPN’s Zach Lowe said Jakob was a player to watch.
