  1. Report: Rockets trying to land Dwight Howard AND Josh Smith

    Jul 3, 2013, 12:01 AM EDT

    Josh Smith, Dwight Howard

    Dwight Howard wants the Rockets to add a third star, and Josh Smith is Houston’s backup plan to Howard. It was only a matter of time until these plans merged. Sam Amick of USA Today: According to two people with knowledge of the situation, the Rockets’ Monday meeting with free agent forward Josh Smith in…

  2. J.J. Redick-Jared Dudley trade might squeeze Chauncey Billups off Clippers

    Jul 2, 2013, 10:26 PM EDT

    Chauncey Billups, Ty Lawson

    Chauncey Billups – when healthy, which wasn’t very often – started at shooting guard for the Clippers the last two years. Now that the Clippers have upgraded their wing positions by trading for J.J. Redick and Jared Dudley, Billups, a free agent, might no longer fit in Los Angeles. Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports:…

  3. Report: Timberwolves to sign Kevin Martin to four-year, $28 million deal

    Jul 2, 2013, 8:24 PM EDT

    Kevin MArtin

    The Timberwolves shot 30.5 percent on 3-pointers last season, dead last in the league. The difference between Minnesota and the 29th-place Magic was great than the difference between the third-best 3-point shooting team and the 21st-best 3-point shooting team. Not only did the Timberwolves need someone capable of making shots from beyond the arc, they…

  4. Report: Pistons want to trade for Rajon Rondo, Rudy Gay

    Jul 2, 2013, 7:07 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Boston Celtics

    The Pistons have two of the NBA’s most promising big men, Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe, and they’ve cleared more than $20 million in cap space this summer. They’re definitely in position to make a jump to the playoffs, which is what general manager Joe Dumars probably needs in the final season of his contract,…

  5. Bulls to waive Richard Hamilton

    Jul 2, 2013, 6:07 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls shooting guard Hamilton questions a call against the Charlotte Bobcats during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Charlotte

    For the second time in three years, an NBA team is paying Richard Hamilton to go away. The Pistons’ cap obligation to pay Hamilton a $14.5 million buyout over the last two seasons just ended, but now the Bulls will pay Hamilton $1 million not to play for them next season. Ken Berger of CBSSports.com:…

  6. Pacers yank Tyler Hansbrough’s qualifying offer

    Jul 2, 2013, 4:18 PM EDT

    Tyler Hansbrough

    Tyler Hansbrough might have waited too long, or maybe he’ll just be free to get a larger offer. The Pacers extended Hansbrough a $4,135,391 qualifying offer in June, so Hansbrough had the option for the last couple days of accepting a one-year, $4,135,391 contract with Indiana. In return, the Pacers had the right to match…

  7. Wizards re-sign Martell Webster to four-year, $22 million contract

    Jul 2, 2013, 2:52 PM EDT

    Martell Webster

    The Wizards drafted small forward Otto Porter, but incumbent starting small forward Martell Webster remained the top priority in free agency. That’s because Webster, who signed a one-year contract with Washington last summer, shot a career-best 42.2 percent on 3-pointers and helped the Wizards go from 28th in 3-point percentage to 10th. For a team…

  8. Knicks pursuing Francisco Garcia and Matt Barnes

    Jul 2, 2013, 2:25 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony, Francisco Garcia

    The Knicks need another small forward. Chris Copeland is a free agent and could join the Pacers soon. Steve Novak was included in the original Andrea Bargnani trade, and Quentin Richardson was added to the revised version. James White was nearly waived during the season, and he’s probably headed to China. Iman Shumpert might play…

  9. Jose Calderon meeting with Kings, one of many suitors

    Jul 2, 2013, 1:44 PM EDT

    Looks more like football as Toronto Raptors' Calderon races Sacramento Kings' Robinson up the court in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Toronto

    When the Pistons traded for Jose Calderon and his expiring contract, they immediately stressed they didn’t view him as a one-year rental. After years of subpar point guard play since they traded Chauncey Billups, Calderon brought playmaking skills to the position Brandon Knight and Rodney Stuckey couldn’t come close to matching. But Calderon and Andre…

  10. Report: Spurs ‘seriously interested’ in Andrei Kirilenko

    Jul 2, 2013, 1:08 PM EDT

    Manu Ginobili, Andrei Kirilenko, Derrick Williams

    The Spurs have two key free agents: Manu Ginobili and Tiago Splitter. Ginobili will likely re-sign at a remarkably reduced cost than the $14 million he made last season, but Splitter will have other suitors bidding for him. Though Splitter is a restricted free agent, the Spurs have the flexibility to let him walk if…

  11. Reports: Wizards talking to their No. 1 priority, Martell Webster, also pursuing Antawn Jamison

    Jul 1, 2013, 10:59 PM EDT

    Martell Webster

    The Wizards got their backup point guard, a much-needed addition that will come in the form of Eric Maynor. But Washington has bigger goals in free agency, mainly retaining small forward Martell Webster. Webster, 26, had a breakout season last year, his first with the Wizards. He posted career highs in points per game (11.4),…

  12. Victor Oladipo as Magic’s point guard?

    Jul 1, 2013, 9:07 PM EDT

    Victor Oladipo

    The Magic, reportedly, wanted to draft a point guard with the No. 2 pick in the draft. But Marcus Smart went back to Oklahoma State, and drafting Michigan’s Trey Burke, Syracuse’s Michael Carter-Williams or Lehigh’s C.J. McCollum that high probably would have been a reach. So, Orlando took Indiana shooting guard Victor Oladipo instead. But…

  13. Report: Bulls sign Mike Dunleavy to two-year, $6 million contract

    Jul 1, 2013, 8:14 PM EDT

    Mike Dunleavy, Jeff Adrien

    Update: Marc Stein of ESPN: https://twitter.com/ESPNSteinLine/status/351857319463759872 Mike Dunleavy has never finished a season with a winning team. He began 2006-07 with the Warriors, who finished 42-40, but he was traded mid-year to the 35-47 Pacers. Otherwise, he’s spent every season of his career entirely with a loser. That could change soon. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo!…

  14. Report: Pacers, Chris Copeland share mutual interest

    Jul 1, 2013, 5:48 PM EDT

    Chris Copeland, Tyler Hansbrough

    The Knicks – who had the NBA’s third-best regular-season offense – struggled to score in their second-round series against the Pacers, posting an offensive rating (100.4) that would have ranked 23rd in the regular season. Strangely, New York seemed to have an answer for its offensive woes. Chris Copeland shot 11-for-20 in the series, and…

  15. Reports: Pelicans to offer Tyreke Evans $40 million–$44 million

    Jul 1, 2013, 5:16 PM EDT

    Kings Hornets Basketball

    Tyreke Evans, a restricted free agent, can’t sign an offer sheet until July 10. But he can agree to terms on one, and though it wouldn’t be binding, it’s an extreme breach of protocol to renege at that point. So, Evans and teams can negotiate in good faith right now. Once Evans signs an offer…

  16. Report: Thunder aggressively pursuing Dorell Wright

    Jul 1, 2013, 4:41 PM EDT

    Dorell Wright, Mike Dunleavy, Monta Ellis

    Signing James Harden to a long-term extension proved too costly to the Thunder, so they traded him for Kevin Martin. Now Martin is a free agent, and he might be too expensive, too. So, once again, Oklahoma City is ready to downgrade. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports: Oklahoma City has begun an aggressive pursuit of…

  17. Report: Lakers interested in Byron Mullens

    Jul 1, 2013, 2:39 PM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Los Angeles Lakers

    Byron Mullens, after barely leaving the bench in his first two seasons with the Thunder, quietly became an alright-looking player with the Bobcats. I say alright-looking, because he scored 14.9 and 14.2 points per 36 minutes in his two seasons with the Bobcats. But he took a lot of long 2s, didn’t shoot them that…

  18. Marcus Camby not pleased to be traded to Raptors

    Jul 1, 2013, 12:42 PM EDT

    New York Knicks center Camby walks off the court after their NBA basketball game against the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City

    When he signed with the Knicks last year, Marcus Camby said, “Hopefully I can end my career in New York with a championship.” He didn’t say “Hopefully I can spend one year in New York and then continue retracing my career backward by getting traded to the rebuilding Raptors.” So, predictably, Camby wasn’t exactly thrilled…

  19. Brandan Wright poised to get substantially bigger contract

    Jul 1, 2013, 11:41 AM EDT

    Bradnon Wright

    Just 14 players have ranked in the top 25 for PER in each of the last two seasons: LeBron James, Chris Paul, Dwyane Wade, Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin, Russell Westbrook, Al Jefferson, LaMarcus Aldridge, Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Kobe Bryant, Brandan Wright, Kyrie Irving and Stephen Curry. The 13 highest-paid members of that group, even…

  20. Report: Greg Oden draws interest from Heat, Spurs, Cavaliers, Celtics, Mavericks, Kings, Pacers and Grizzlies

    Jul 1, 2013, 10:56 AM EDT

    Greg Oden

    When are teams interested in signing someone who hasn’t played in four years? When it’s Greg Oden, who posted 16.7 points, 12.8 rebounds and 3.4 blocks per 36 minutes when he last played in 2009. Even though it’s such an extreme long shot he even approaches that level of production agagin, Oden, the former No.…

  21. Mavericks allow Darren Collison to become unrestricted free agent

    Jul 1, 2013, 9:45 AM EDT

    Darren Collison

    Darren Collison might have played himself out of a contract offer from the Mavericks. Collison – by averaging 41 starts or 2,000 minutes in the last two seasons of his rookie-scale contract (he actually did both) – increased his qualifying offer from $3,342,175 to $4,531,459, and the Mavericks declined to extend that higher offer by…

  22. Report: Warriors put David Lee on trade block

    Jul 1, 2013, 9:15 AM EDT

    David Lee

    The 2013 NBA playoffs were filled with many incredible moments: Ray Allen’s 3-pointer to send Game 6 of the NBA Finals to overtime, LeBron James making a game-winning layup with Roy Hibbert on the bench, Nate Robinson carrying the Bulls to a triple-overtime win and many more. One moment that might have appeared to deserve…

  23. Report: Kyle Korver to Nets ‘in the bag’

    Jul 1, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Brooklyn Nets

    The Nets were a below-average 3-point shooting team last season, and their 3-point percentage plummeted to a lowly 31.6 percent a first-round loss to the Bulls. Paul Pierce should help, but Brooklyn could use even more outside shooting. Not only would it add points from a very efficient area, it would help space the floor.…

  24. Report: Pelicans making big offer to Tyreke Evans

    Jul 1, 2013, 1:58 AM EDT

    Tyreke Evans, Robin Lopez

    The Pelicans aren’t content adding just Jrue Holiday and Pierre Jackson to a dynamic backcourt that already included Eric Gordon and Greivis Vasquez. They’re also ready to offer Tyreke Evans, a restricted free agent, a sizable contract. David Aldridge of NBA.com: As @ESPNSteinLine reported, Pelicans will meet with Tyreke Evans late tonight. Told they will…

  25. Report: Pistons ready to make Josh Smith a big offer

    Jul 1, 2013, 12:49 AM EDT

    Josh Smith, Andre Drummond

    Joe Dumars has shown he’ll strike quickly to get the players he wants, price be darned. Sometimes, that means getting Chauncey Billups. Other times, the result is Ben Gordon and Charlie Villanueva. Dumars appears to be going full speed ahead to get his man again. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports: Detroit Pistons general manager Joe…
