The Chicago Bulls acquired center Brad Miller and John Salmons from the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday for four players, including forwards Drew Gooden and Andres Nocioni. Sacramento also got Michael Ruffin and Cedric Simmons in the deal, but traded Ruffin to Portland for forward Ike Diogu and cash. The Kings then waived guard Quincy Douby and veteran Sam Cassell, acquired Tuesday from Boston. The trade clears more than $10 million in salary cap for the Kings next season.

Also Wednesday, the Oklahoma City Thunder rescinded its trade with the New Orleans, sending center Tyson Chandler back to the Hornets because he failed a physical for an unspecified reason. The Thunder backed out of the deal that sent Chris Wilcox, Joe Smith and DeVon Hardin to New Orleans.

Houston Rocket Tracy McGrady said on his website that he would have surgery on his left knee and would sit out the rest of the season.
