Mired in their longest losing streak of the season, Phoenix have acquired veteran F/G Jim Jackson from New Orleans in exchange for Casey Jacobsen, Maciej Lampe and Jackson Vroman..

Jackson, now en route to his 12th team in 13 years, had refused to report to the Hornets after being traded from Houston in exchange for G David Wesley last month.

To make room for their new arrivals, New Orleans waived forward Matt Freije and guard Junior Harrington.

In a completely unrelated note, David Bowie’s “Blue Jean” was playing over the Air Canada Center tannoy during the 3rd quarter of Wednesday night’s Knicks/Raptors game. Does anyone know why?
