Sean Highkin: Chauncey Billups says CJ McCollum is doing cardio again. No timetable for a return but signs are encouraging about his recovery from the collapsed lung. -via Twitter @highkin / December 23, 2021

Is it personally hard to hear your name in trade rumors? CJ McCollum: I’ve always focused on controlling the controllables. I can’t control any of the noise that comes with playing this game. I can say that as a basketball player you will be involved at some point in rumors regardless of the magnitude because you play a sport. The media kind of dictates the story line. Success and failure also plays a role. -via New York Times / December 13, 2021

I was told that when Tobias Harris’ name was out there that the Blazers had no interest in trading CJ (McCollum) for Tobias. -via Spotify / December 11, 2021
