Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points like Scotland loves Andy Murray.

• Who are the worst owners in the NBA? Tom Ziller tackles the question for SBN and he makes a good point at the top: If you are talking about the worst person who is an owner, Donald Sterling wins hands down. He should really have his own category for worst owner. But he is less hands on in recent years and there have been smart basketball moves following the drafting of Blake Griffin, and the Clippers are winning. Worst owner if you are a fan right now? Try and top the Maloof family. I dare you.

• A fantastic read in New York Magazine about Isiah Thomas and the Knicks, and how Knicks fans feel (which is not happy but they shrug more than get outraged anymore).

You’ll like this Mavs fans: In an interview with the Jazz’s Enes Kanter‘s offseason workouts, he said that Elton Brand has looked really good.

Andray Blatche has agreed to terms with the Nets but no deal has formally been signed because… that’s really not clear.

Deron Williams says he is open to playing in the 2014 World Championships in Spain.

• The Spurs have worked out Jason Kapono.

Josh Childress is supposed to work out for the Nets on Tuesday.

• The Dallas Mavericks hosted a “press conference” where season ticket holders got to ask questions of a few of the new Mavericks players for next season (Elton Brand and others), plus owner Mark Cuban and coach Rick Carlisle. It was pretty bland, but if you want to know what people said here you go.

• Suns players Kendall Marshall and P.J. Tucker took questions via social media.

• While Suns players are gathering to work out at the team facilities, Channing Frye‘s shoulder is still holding him back from full workouts.

• One of the more underrated NBA players ever, Bob McAdoo, really is high on the Heat.

• The Heat are about to bring in Terrel Harris and Robert Dozier as training camp fodder.

• Speaking of training camp fodder, the Knicks are bringing in John Shurna.

• D.J. Strawberry has inked a deal with Hapoel Holon in Israel.

    Worst owner is clearly James Dolan. No owner in his right mind would look for advice from Isiah Thomas.

    Sure as hell ain’t Micky Arison!
