Where does everything stand?

The abbreviated NBA offseason has been something of a whirlwind. Consider this a chance to get your bearings before everything gets turned upside down again tomorrow (and the day after that, and ...)
Chris Paul is still a member of the New Orleans Hornets. The Los Angeles Clippers became the latest team to back off, turning down a proposed trade involving Paul because the asking price was too high. The package reportedly included center Chris Kaman, reserve guard Eric Bledsoe, forward Al-Farouq Aminu and their No. 1 pick in the 2012 draft.
The Clippers made two other moves instead, claiming five-time all-star Chauncey Billups off waivers and re-signing center DeAndre Jordan. The Clippers got Jordan back after matching an offer sheet from Golden State.
Dwight Howard's relationship with the Orlando Magic appears to be improving. CEO Alex Martins sat down with the all-star center, who asked to be traded. Martins said he remains confident he can convince Howard that Orlando can build a championship team.
The Detroit Pistons finalized what has been a formality, cutting ties with three-time all-star Richard Hamilton. Both sides agreed to terms of a buyout.
Marc Gasol announced on Twitter that he has reached a tentative agreement with the Grizzlies keeping him in Memphis.
After helping Dallas capture its first NBA title, JJ Barea is closing in on a deal to help Ricky Rubio learn the ropes in Minnesota.
