  1. Wizards’ coach, GM on different pages; Washington has reported interest in DeJuan Blair

    Jul 13, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    Johan Petro, DeJuan Blair

    Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld and Washington coach Randy Wittman both met with the media Thursday, but separately. That second part is key. As noticed by Michael Lee of The Washington Post, Grunfeld and Wittman gave differing opinion on the state of Wizards’ roster. Grunfeld: “I think we feel good about the team,” Grunfeld said at…

  2. Report: Kemba Walker pitched Bobcats on, recruited Al Jefferson

    Jul 13, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Charlotte Bobcats

    In 2011-12, the Bobcats could have won 12 more games – in a 66-game schedule, no less – without sacrificing any lottery positioning. The Magic out-tanked Charlotte last season, but both those teams were so far below the rest of the NBA, the Bobcats still could have won a couple more games without relinquishing any…

  3. Mike D’Antoni agrees with Kobe in not wanting Metta World Peace amnestied

    Jul 13, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Metta World Peace, Mike D'Antoni

    Kobe Bryant has already gone on record saying he didn’t want the Lakers to amnesty Metta World Peace. In that sentiment, at least, Kobe and Mike D’Antoni are on the same page. Marc Berman of the New York Post: Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni said today the decision to amnesty Metta World Peace was purely financial…

  4. Royce White making 100 flights in a season? ‘Hell no,’ he says

    Jul 13, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Rockets White Basketball

    The Rockets knew what they were getting when they drafted Royce White, and even more so, the 76ers knew what they were getting when they traded for him. White is, I think, a talented player, but I can’t say that with much certainty, because he’s never played in the NBA. His anxiety issues, which include…

  5. Report: Raptors to sign Dwight Buycks as No. 2 point guard

    Jul 13, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    BASKETBALL-FRA-LNB-2013

    I don’t know much about Dwight Buycks, but here’s one thing I do know about the guard who’s spent two seasons since leaving Marquette without an NBA job: He played for the Thunder in the Orlando summer league last week, and he planned to play for the Heat in the Las Vegas summer league this…

  6. Jrue Holiday-Nerlens Noel trade now official

    Jul 13, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Toney Douglas, Jrue Holiday

    Congratulations, Jrue Holiday. Fresh off marrying U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team member Lauren Cheney (now Lauren Holiday) – and the subsequent honeymoon that delayed his trade from becoming official – Jrue Holiday is now a husband and Pelican. The trade, which sends Nerlens Noel and a future first-round pick to the 76ers, hinged on Holiday…

  7. Report: Jazz want to resurrect Utah summer league

    Jul 12, 2013, 4:53 PM EDT

    B.J. Young, Rudy Gobert, Jeremy Evans

    At one point, there were three NBA summer leagues – Las Vegas, Orlando and Salt Lake City. But the Utah version – called the Rocky Mountain Revue – last occurred in 2008, when the Jazz officials who ran the league needed to invite a D-League team and the Iranian national team just to fill the…

  8. Andray Blatche doesn’t care about toll roads

    Jul 12, 2013, 4:38 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Brooklyn Nets - Game One

    Andray Blatche just completed the best per-minute season of his career. He was so good when the Nets put him on the court, he was arguably better in sum than any of the four seasons in which he played more minutes for the Wizards. Blatche shot fewer long 2s, hit the glass harder and protected…

  9. Report: Monta Ellis agrees to three-year, $30 million contract with Mavericks

    Jul 12, 2013, 3:48 PM EDT

    Monta Ellis, Dirk Nowitzki

    Update: Ellis and the Mavericks have reached an agreement, according to Marc Stein of ESPN. Maybe it was the agent, after all. Two days after firing his agent, Ellis might finally be on the verge of getting the big-money contract he’s desired. Stein: Monta Ellis and Mavericks closing in on a three-year deal that could…

  10. Report: NBA executives don’t trust Mikhail Prokhorov after Nets sign Andrei Kirilenko on cheap

    Jul 12, 2013, 3:00 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kirilenko blocks a shot by Brooklyn Nets forward Humphries in the first quarter of their NBA basketball game in New York

    Andrei Kirilenko opted out of a Timberwolves contract that would have paid him $10.2 million next season, and he accepted a contract with the Nets that starts at $3.18 million. Kirilenko is Russian, as is Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov. Apparently, NBA executives have connected those facts, and they’re mad, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo!…

  11. 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,…

  12. 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,…

  13. 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,…

  14. 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…

  15. 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)…

  16. 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…

  17. 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…

  18. 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…

  19. 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…

  20. 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…

  21. 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…

  22. 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,…

  23. 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…

  24. 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…

  25. 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…
