JOSH POWELL RUMORS & GOSSIP
The Houston Rockets will sign Josh Powell to a multi-year contract, league sources told RealGM.
Powell's contract for next season will be non-guaranteed, which sets up the possibility of a trade.
A two-time NBA champion with the Los Angeles Lakers, Powell had spent the season playing overseas. He averaged 15 points and 9.9 rebounds in the Chinese Basketball Association.
Josh Powell signed with the Genebra Kings of Philippines, the club announced Monday.
Powell had spent the season playing in the Chinese Basketball Association.
Powell was in training camp with the New York Knicks in October.
The New York Knicks have waived forwards Ike Diogu, C.J. Leslie, Josh Powell and Jeremy Tyler and guard Chris Douglas-Roberts. Diogu, 6-8, 255-pounds, averaged 7.2 points, on 56.7-percent shooting, and 4.0 rebounds over 16.2 minutes in six preseason games after signing as a free agent on Sep. 27. Leslie, 6-9, 210-pounds, recorded 12 points and seven rebounds over 36 minutes...
Given their already existent payroll and whatnot, the Knicks' core group is already set. Any and all surprise contributors will emerge within the coming weeks from the handful of training camp invitees currently fighting to prove their worth.
Clearly, New York has had success experimenting with similar options in recent seasons. Everyone knows Jeremy Lin was truly one of...

Josh Powell, Ike Diogu and Cole Aldrich are competing for one of the final spots on the New York Knicks' regular season roster.
All three big men were signed to non-guaranteed contracts.
"One of them has a good chance to make it," Mike Woodson said.
The Knicks also signed Jeremy Tyler in the offseason, but he is recovering from an injury.
The night ended with San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich commenting on assistant coach Ime Udoka’s shoes, Spurs’ Stephen Jackson informing the media of his dinner plans, the team releasing forward Josh Powell, the team picking up options on Kawhi Leonard and Cory Joseph; and Danny Green discussing how the Spurs are preparing for the opening season next week.
The San Antonio Spurs definitely need to add more size to the roster. We’ve known that for years. This year, they have some options, but definitely a tough choice.
Josh Powell and Eddy Curry have been competing hard to make the final cut. They’ve put up similar numbers in the Spurs’ two preseason games, making it hard to distinguish between the pair.
So how do the Spurs...
The biggest need heading into the new season is size on the San Antonio Spurs. Currently, the team only has Tim Duncan and Tiago Splitter but after that, it's a considerable drop off. The team is undersized and can use some help in the paint.
And as training camp is well underway, Manu Ginobili says having Josh Powell and Eddy Curry on the roster is a huge help.
