Nova Struggling With Location, Off-Speed Pitches Ivan Nova is 1-4 in his last eight starts. Nova surrendered seven hits and six runs in six innings against the White Sox on Tuesday night."He's struggled. There's no doubt the second half, he's struggled," Joe Girardi said. "He has not located like he did the first half, and his off-speed has not been consistent. You just got to keep working. That's all you can do."Nova, who was 16-4 with a 3.70 ERA in 2011, is 11-7 with a 4.92 ERA this year. NBA PM: Houston Rockets Lebron 9 Low Trade Fix In a perfect world, it won��t take a major trade for the Houston Rockets to get the major piece they need to get back in the playoff chase next season. They would love to just sign someone like Marc Gasol, Nene or Tyson Chandler and just right back into the mix.Unfortunately, their track record for signing key free agents isn��t so good, so it��s more likely they will have to find their starting center by other means.The Rockets haven��t yet engaged the Utah Jazz in trade talks, but it��s hard to imagine that connection won��t be made eventually. Perhaps it will take a few of their other plans falling through, as seems inevitable, but sooner or

later Houston should have a discussion with the Jazz . . .about Mehmet Okur.Okur would have been absolutely perfect for Rick Adelman��s system. He��s a big man who can knock down shots from Lebron 9 Low Summit Lake Hornets all over the court and also has a decent passing game. Adelman may be gone, but much of his personnel is still there, and players like Kevin Martin, Luis Scola, Chase Budinger and Kyle Lowry would certainly benefit from playing with a center possessing all of the skills that Okur possesses.The Jazz, of course, basically moved on from Okur while he was injured last season. They have Al Jefferson starting at center, meaning Okur is likely out of the starting rotation. The Jazz could get a decent backup from Houston in a trade, someone like Jordan Hill, for example, while also filling out some depth on the wing and at the point with Houston��s wide array of guard talent. The Rockets also have plenty of first round picks to throw in to help the Jazz open up cap space and build for the future.Okur is going into the final year of a contract that will pay him $10.9 million, an amount the Rockets can easily absorb. He is also said to be fully healthy after missing much of last

season with an Achilles�� tendon tear. He would represent a low-risk, high-return investment for the Rockets and might just be enough to get them back into the postseason in Kevin McHale��s first year as head coach.Again, the Rockets are not targeting Mehmet Okur, and he may not even be on their radar, but as their radar starts to empty out while free agents commit elsewhere, don��t be surprised if there isn��t at least a discussion between the Rockets and Jazz regarding Utah��s former starting center.Yi Returns To ChinaFew players arrive in the NBA with the level of anticipation that accompanied Yi Jianlian when he made his debut with the Milwaukee Bucks in 2007. Unfortunately, he never found a way to get out from under the shadow of Yao Ming, and also never Jeremy Lin Shoes achieved the level of success Yao did before he retired due to injury. Now, four years into his NBA career, there are questions about whether or not Yi even has a future in the league. He averaged just 5.6 points in an ever-shrinking role for the Washington Wizards last season, the final year on his contract. Now he��s returned home to China to prepare for the start of the Chinese Basketball Association.Yi looked at the lockout situation and wanted to

be on the right side of the fence,�� Jarinn Akana, one of Yi��s representatives, explained to Michael Lee of the Washington Post. If something came down, and they made an agreement he could come back and if not, hes on that side that he can play. It was just a matter of looking at the situation and figuring out if it made sense to play.The Wizards declined to extend the $5.4 million qualifying offer that would have made Yi a restricted free agent going into the 2011-12 NBA season. Yi��s camp is hopeful that by continuing to work and showing some good things in China he can grab the attention of another NBA team in need of help at the forward position.Yi is still improving and working on his game,�� said Akana. ��Of course, like all young players, you need to keep playing to develop. If not, you lose that development time. All players know, sitting idle doesnt help.So Yi returns to the team that saw him grow into the player who was of interest to the NBA, the one who led the Guangdong Southern Tigers to four consecutive CBA championships.Although he may not stay with us very long, I am quite sure his return is good for himself, the team and
