For Luke Ridnour, it's Tuesday — so that must mean he's now with Toronto.

The former Timberwolf was traded to the Toronto Raptors on Tuesday — becoming a member of his fifth team in a little less than a week and extending one of the more bizarre NBA player odysseys in recent memory.

Ridnour was traded by Orlando to Memphis last Wednesday for the draft rights to 6-7 Latvian swingman Janis Timma, a former second-round draft pick.

The Magic made the move to clear up salary-cap space.

On Thursday morning, Ridnour awoke to find out that Grizzlies had traded him to Charlotte for forward Matt Barnes.

Before Ridnour could even grab lunch, just after noon on Thursday reports came that the Hornets traded him and a second-round 2016 draft pick to Oklahoma City for Jeremy Lamb.

He had been a member of the Thunder since then — until Tuesday when the Thunder traded him to the Raptors for a $2.85 million trade exception and the rights to Tomislav Zubcic.

What makes Ridnour so valued in a trade is his contract. Ridnour is in the second year of a two-year deal, but his salary of $2.75 million for the 2015-16 season is not guaranteed if he's waived before July 11.

That mean's there's a very good chance he won't be in Toronto long enough to fry some Canadian bacon.

Kings and Calipari

Sacramento is gauging the interest of Kentucky's John Calipari in coaching the Kings and running the front office, according to Yahoo sports. Calipari had a similar role with the New Jersey Nets, going 72-112 from 1996-99.

Kings owner Vivek Ranadive, however, told The Sacramento Bee the report was "categorically untrue."

Calipari coached Kings All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins in college in 2009-10. Cousins has been feuding with new coach George Karl for months.

The Yahoo report said the Kings are seeking ways to fire Karl "with cause" to get out of paying him the remainder of his salary. Karl is owed about $10 million. Firing Karl would be due to his trying to broker a trade for Cousins without permission from the team.

The report said Calipari had not been offered a job with the Kings. If he were and accepted it, Calipari would be the Kings' fourth head coach and the third man to oversee the front office since last December.

Calipari said via his Twitter account that his conversations with the Kings have been about Cousins and Kings' first-round pick Willie Cauley-Stein, two of his former players, and that he has not been offered a job.


•Orlando issued qualifying offers to combo forward Tobias Harris and big man Kyle O'Quinn, a move that will ensure the Magic will have the right to match offer sheets they may sign with other teams.

Tristan Thompson, Matthew Dellavedova and Iman Shumpert all received qualifying offers from Cleveland, and forward Mike Miller exercised his $2.85-million option for next season.

Stephen Curry surpassed LeBron James for the most popular jersey in the NBA. The Golden State star and league MVP topped the list of jersey sales in the NBA for the first time Tuesday. With teammates Klay Thompson ranking fifth and Draymond Green at No. 15, the Warriors also led the team-merchandise sales list during the playoffs. James, who held the top spot at the end of the regular season, dropped to second. Chicago's Derrick Rose is third and Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving is fourth.

Jared Dudley exercised his player option for $4.25 million for the final year of his contract with the Bucks.
