  1. Nets, Celtics officially complete trade sending Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to Brooklyn

    Jul 12, 2013, 2:29 PM EDT

    Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce

    The Nets and Celtics have officially completed their blockbuster trade that sends Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to Brooklyn. Because this detail had so many reported iterations, here are the final terms: The Brooklyn Nets have acquired Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Jason Terry and D.J. White from the Boston Celtics in exchange for Gerald Wallace,…

  2. Knicks interested in Tyrus Thomas

    Jul 12, 2013, 1:55 PM EDT

    Tyrus Thomas

    The Bobcats amnestied Tyrus Thomas, making the move official Wednesday. Any team with space to absorb his 2013-14 salary of $8,694,215 can claim him (not happening). If that doesn’t happen, any team with cap room can bid how much it wants to pay him the next two seasons (maybe happening). That process takes 48 hours,…

  3. Pistons waive everyone’s favorite second-round pick, Kim English

    Jul 11, 2013, 8:45 PM EDT

    Kim English, MarShon Brooks

    Before the season, John Schuhmann of NBA.com surveyed rookies about their fellow first-year players. The Pistons’ Kim English finished fifth for best defender and fourth for best shooter. He even received votes for “Which rookie will have the best career?” one of two second rounders to receive a nod for that most-important question. English is,…

  4. Pistons won’t amnesty Charlie Villanueva

    Jul 11, 2013, 6:36 PM EDT

    Charlie Villanueva

    The Pistons already made their big move – signing Josh Smith – and their small moves (signing Chauncey Billups and Luigi Datome and re-signing Will Bynum). They might still have a little cap room left to make another small signing, but they’re already over the roster limit including their draft picks, so adding the caliber…

  5. Report: Nets to sign Andrei Kirilenko to two-year contract starting at $3.18 million

    Jul 11, 2013, 6:33 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kirilenko looks to pass the ball as he falls to the fall in front of teammate Williams and Brooklyn Nets guard Johnson in the first quarter of their NBA basketball game in New York

    The rich get richer. Or the rich get poorer, depending on your perspective. The Nets, already set to pay an unprecedentedly large luxury tax, will add another player who adds to the bill. Peter Vecsey of the New York Post: This just in: Nets have signed. Kirilenko for mini mid-level, 3.1M per— Peter Vecsey (@PeterVecsey1)…

  6. Bobcats exploring Gerald Henderson sign-and-trades

    Jul 11, 2013, 12:41 AM EDT

    Gerald Henderson, Quincy Pondexter

    Bobcats wing Gerald Henderson has steadily improved, both offensively and defensively, since entering the NBA four years ago. Last season, he became a viable 3-point shooter – making 33 percent of his 1.5 attempts beyond the arc per game, both career highs – and that should boost his stock as a free agent in a…

  7. Mavericks to sign Wayne Ellington to two-year, $5 million+ contract

    Jul 10, 2013, 9:15 AM EDT

    Wayne Ellington, Carmelo Anthony

    Back in March of 2011, Mavericks owner Mark Cuban revealed key piece of his strategy for building a team. Henry Abbott of ESPN: Cuban confessed that once Dirk Nowitzki retires he expects the Mavericks to lose, and, if he gets his way, they’ll lose badly. Kevin Pritchard seemed to agree and introduced a new term…

  8. NBA sets salary cap and luxury-tax line slightly higher than expected

    Jul 9, 2013, 10:48 PM EDT

    NBA Commissioner David Stern Announces Retirement

    The NBA’s salary cap and luxury-tax line for the 2013-14 season will be higher than last projected, though not quite as high as once hoped. NBA PR: NBA Salary Cap for the 2013-14 season will be $58.679M. The tax level for the 2013-14 season has been set at $71.748M Larry Coon provides more details of…

  9. Raptors to sign Tyler Hansbrough to two-year contract

    Jul 9, 2013, 9:25 PM EDT

    Tyler Hansbrough

    What are the Raptors doing? Trying to win, I guess. Despite predictions of mass tanking across the NBA next season, Toronto – which also rejected dumping the talented-but-overpaid Rudy Gay for cap relief and traded Andrea Bargnani (a move that helps with the cap and increases the Raptors’ chances of winning next season) – will…

  10. Chris Andersen to re-sign with Heat

    Jul 9, 2013, 8:28 PM EDT

    Chris Andersen

    The Birdman won’t fly the coop. Chris Andersen has agreed to a one-year contract with the Heat, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports. Andersen will make between $1,399,507 (the minimum salary for a player with at least 10 year’s experience) and $3,183,000 (the taxpayer mid-level exception). Obviously, the less Andersen makes, the more Miami…

  11. Otto Porter didn’t expect first NBA practice to be so fast-paced

    Jul 9, 2013, 7:37 PM EDT

    Otto Porter, the No. 3 overall pick in the 2013 NBA draft by the Wizards, is not an elite athlete compared to the other players selected around him. He also played for Georgetown, the 301st slowest among 347 Division I teams last season. The Hoyas heavily structured offense relied on timing, passing and shooting more…

  12. Magic, Hedo Turkoglu discussing buyout

    Jul 9, 2013, 6:54 PM EDT

    Hedo Turkoglu

    In some ways, Hedo Turkoglu became the face of the Orlando Magic during the 2009 NBA Finals. Dwight Howard was unquestionably Orlando’s top player, but with point guard Jameer Nelson battling injury, Turkoglu became the Magic’s primary ball-handler and leading scorer. All eyes were on him. After the series, a 4-1 loss to the Lakers,…

  13. Will Bynum, one-time Knicks and Lakers target, re-signing with Pistons

    Jul 8, 2013, 11:29 PM EDT

    Will Bynum, Carmelo Anthony

    Will Bynum – a backup point guard the Knicks and Lakers reportedly wanted – has agreed to re-sign with the Pistons, his agent told reporters. David Aldridge of NBA.com: Will Bynum's deal in Detroit is for two years, $5.75 million.— David Aldridge (@daldridgetnt) July 09, 2013 Bynum had his finest season last year. His peaks…

  14. Report: Lakers will amnesty Metta World Peace

    Jul 8, 2013, 9:31 PM EDT

    Metta World Peace

    The Lakers aren’t Riggin’ for Wiggins – signing veteran center Chris Kaman proves that – but they’re hedging their bets. With Dwight Howard in Houston, Kobe Bryant injured, Pau Gasol old and Steve Nash older, the shine has worn off Lakers’ once-promising starting lineup. So, no sense keeping the weak link of that unit just…

  15. Report: Warriors to sign Marreese Speights to three-year deal

    Jul 8, 2013, 8:04 PM EDT

    Marreese Speights, Festus Ezeli

    The Warriors depleted their bench while upgrading their top six, which is a pretty good tradeoff. In the playoffs, where Golden State is and should now be focused, rotations shrink and a team’s best players matter more. But it doesn’t hurt to have depth, and this should help bolster the Warriors’ bench. Marc J. Spears…

  16. Chris Kaman agrees to Lakers contract

    Jul 8, 2013, 4:59 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Bryant shoots over Dallas Mavericks Kaman during their NBA game in Dallas

    The Lakers, by definition, were going to downgrade their center position, because they just lost the NBA’s best center. The only question was how big the downgrade would be. In comparison to Dwight Howard, it’s pretty big. Marc Stein of ESPN: Lakers and Chris Kaman, I've told, have agreed to terms on one-year deal— Marc…

  17. Report: Pistons will hire Rasheed Wallace as assistant coach

    Jul 8, 2013, 3:54 PM EDT

    New York Knicks'  Wallace jokes around on the bench in the first quarter of their NBA basketball game against the Milwaukee Bucks at Madison Square Garden in New York

    Rasheed Wallace’s temper distracted from the rest of his game. Few saw his advanced post moves, perfect defensive positioning (Game 5 of the 2005 Finals aside) and deft passing. Rather, most just focused on the technical fouls – though, to be fair, there were a lot of technical fouls. But Pistons general manager Joe Dumars…

  18. Who’s been the most successful player after leaving the Lakers?

    Jul 8, 2013, 9:03 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard Shaquille O'Neal

    When Shaquille O’Neal signed with the Lakers, Jerry West took him to the Staples Center Forum and showed him the retired jerseys hanging from the rafters – including those of Wilt Chamberlain, Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Elgin Baylor and West himself. Great players tend to find there way onto the Lakers, not out of Los…

  19. If Jazz guard Randy Foye agrees to Nuggets contract, Warriors could spend more in free agency

    Jul 8, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets guard Andre Iguodala drives past Utah Jazz guard Randy Foye during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Salt Lake City, Utah

    The Warriors will sign Andre Iguodala to a four-year, $48 million contract. Golden State will also trade Richard Jefferson, Andris Biedrins, Brandon Rush and draft picks to the Jazz for Kevin Murphy. That much we know. Utah guard Randy Foye, a free agent, might go to the Nuggets on a three-year, $9 million contract (with…

  20. Dwight Howard: Kobe never offered to teach me how to be a champion

    Jul 6, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard

      Remember when Kobe Bryant tried to get Dwight Howard to stay in Los Angeles by telling him, “Let me teach you how to be a champion”? Never happened, Howard says. Howard in a Q&A with Alex Kennedy of Hoops World: What did you think of Kobe Bryant’s comments that he could teach you how…

  21. Dwight Howard asked Lakers to hire Phil Jackson

    Jul 6, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Memorial Service For Los Angeles Lakers Owner Dr. Jerry Buss

    Dwight Howard reportedly wanted the Lakers to hire Phil Jackson after they fired Mike Brown early last season. Jim Buss obviously didn’t acquiesce Howard’s request — he has wanted to put his own stamp on this organization, not give more power to his sister Jeanie — so the Lakers got swept in the first round…

  22. Jose Calderon to sign with Mavericks

    Jul 6, 2013, 2:10 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors Jose Calderon drives up the court as Dallas Mavericks Brandan Wright follows during their NBA basketball game in Dallas

    The Mavericks were so bad at point guard last season, they brought in 38-year-old Derek Fisher and 37-year-old Mike James to start. Dallas’ best point guard, Darren Collison, is a free agent now, so the Mavericks are going with a full-blow youth movement at the position. Enter 31-year-old Jose Calderon. Marc Stein of ESPN: The…

  23. Dwight Howard and James Harden could form NBA’s best duo

    Jul 5, 2013, 7:43 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers

    Dwight Howard is a center. James Harden is a guard. Howard is one of the NBA’s best defenders. Harden is one of the league’s top offensive players. Howard is an elite interior scorer. Harden’s range extends beyond the 3-point line. Howard is excellent as the screener in pick-and-rolls. Harden is superb as the ball-handler on…

  24. Report Omer Asik ready to force a trade because of Dwight Howard

    Jul 5, 2013, 7:10 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard, Omer Asik

    Not everyone with the Rockets is pleased Dwight Howard has agreed to sign with Houston. Brian Windhorst of ESPN: https://twitter.com/WindhorstESPN/status/353283007282552833 How does Los Angeles sound, Omer? Because the Rockets don’t have the cap space to sign Howard, they must make other moves before officially signing him (unless he’s willing to take less money). That could…

  25. Dwight Howard signing just the beginning for Rockets

    Jul 5, 2013, 6:37 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers

    Darryl Morey has done the hardest job, getting Dwight Howard to sign with the Rockets. Now the Houston general manager has even more moves ahead. The Rockets don’t have cap room to give Howard a max contract, so Morey must either convince Howard to take less money, arrange a sign-and-trade with the Lakers or change…
