    Cody Zeller, Victor Oladipo

    Although not a definitive list of the players who will go in the top 10 picks of the NBA Draft, Chad Ford of ESPN has the 10 players the NBA invited to the green room for the draft: Nerlens Noel Victor Oladipo Otto Porter Alex Len Anthony Bennett Ben McLemore Trey Burke Michael Carter-Williams C.J.…

  2. Chandler Parsons talks daily with Dwight Howard about signing with the Rockets

    Jun 22, 2013, 11:00 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Dwight Howard goes up to shoot under pressure from Houston Rockets Chandler Parsons during their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    The Rockets are trying to clear cap space in order to pursue Dwight Howard, and he reportedly views that favorably. It’s one of the subtle ways teams are allowed to communicate, indirectly obviously, with free agents before July 1. Of course, teams can use impermissible methods, too. But there’s also another way Houston is getting…

  3. Pelicans taking No. 13 pick, Shawn Marion off Mavericks’ hands?

    Jun 22, 2013, 9:30 PM EDT

    Hornets Mavericks Basketball

    The Mavericks have been shopping the No. 13 pick to clear cap space, and maybe they’ve found a taker who will also accept the final year of Shawn Marion’s contract, which owes him $9,316,796. Fletcher Mackel of WDSU TV: REPORT don't be surprised if Pelicans acquire 13th pk from Mavs, select Giannis Adetokunbo. NOLA also…

  4. Clippers talk contract with Byron Scott and Brian Shaw

    Jun 22, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    Byron Scott

    Maybe this is part of an elaborate bluff or misdirection or… Maybe the Clippers are just moving on from Doc Rivers. Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times: Clippers actually talked contract with Byron Scott after meeting with Sterling Tuesday night; Clips also talked contract with BShaw also — Brad Turner (@BA_Turner) June 22, 2013…

  5. Spurs’ run finally over? An annual question

    Jun 22, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    BKN-NBA-FINALS-SPURS-HEAT-PRACTICE

    Tim Duncan is 37. Manu Ginobili is 35. Tony Parker, the youngest of the Spurs’ famed trio, is 31. All three have significant mileage from NBA regular seasons, long playoff runs and international play. Are they over the hill to the point San Antonio’s run finally ended? It sure seems so, but I also realize…

  6. Warriors general manager Bob Myers hints team might buy draft pick

    Jun 22, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    Joe Lacob, Peter Guber

    Just three teams don’t have picks in the upcoming NBA Draft: the Heat, Raptors and Warriors. The Heat, though every team could use draft picks, are doing just fine. The Raptors, according at least one prominent report, sent out cash in the Rudy Gay trade and the Collective Bargaining Agreement limits how much money a…

  7. Ben McLemore the next Ray Allen? Victor Oladipo the next Dwyane Wade? How they answer could be telling

    Jun 22, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    Ben McLemore

    Ben McLemore and Victor Oladipo are the consensus top two shooting guards in the 2013 NBA Draft, but for very different reasons. McLemore is seen as a potential superstar who needs more on-court aggressiveness to really shine. Oladipo is seen as a great role player who maximizes his talent. Even a couple seemingly benign quotes…

  8. Report: Doc Rivers tried to fight Rajon Rondo after Celtics point guard swore at him

    Jun 22, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Doc Rivers, Rajon Rondo

    Most reports have said Doc Rivers might not want to return to the Celtics because he’s wary of rebuilding, but is there another factor? Chris Sheridan of Sheridan Hoops: A source close to the Celtics tells Chris Sheridan of SheridanHoops.com that Rondo droopped an F-bomb on Rivers in the locker room during a team meeting,…

    Oklahoma City Thunder guard Thabo Sefolosha of Switzerland, celebrates with teammate Russell Westbrook after a Westbrook scored against the Houston Rockets in the second half of their Game 2 NBA Playoffs basketball game

    Charlie Bright, as explained by Royce Young of Daily Thunder, took Rachel Haycraft on their first date to a Thunder game. So, when he later decided to propose, he wanted to incorporate the Thunder. Via Young: “I thought a really cool way to combine the two would be for Russell, or somebody on the team…

  10. Report: Chris Paul unhappy after Doc Rivers-to-Clippers fails to materialize

    Jun 22, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers Paul reacts during their loss to the Memphis Grizzlies in Game 5 of their NBA Western Conference Quarterfinals basketball playoff series in Los Angeles

    Chris Paul didn’t like Clippers owner Donald Sterling insinuating Paul had Vinny Del Negro had fired. Then Paul asked the Clippers to acquire Doc Rivers and Kevin Garnett, which probably isn’t happening (though I won’t rule it out until the Clippers hire a coach or Rivers directly announces his intentions to coach Boston next season). How…

  11. Report: Nuggets offered draft pick for Doc Rivers, will settle for Lionel Hollins or Brian Shaw

    Jun 21, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Doc Rivers

    Haven’t experienced enough twists with the Doc Rivers saga? Well you’re in luck. The NBA’s latest soap opera has a new guest star: the Nuggets. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo!

  12. LeBron James matches Magic Johnson’s NBA Finals mark

    Jun 21, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 7

    LeBron James won NBA Finals MVP, but that honor, which must be given to someone each year no matter how much or how little he elevates his game above his peers, doesn’t give the Heat star his full due. LeBron dominated these Finals. His all-around game on as full a display as ever, he led…

  13. Heat survive most pressure-packed season of all time

    BKN-NBA-FINALS-SPURS-HEAT-GAME 7

    LeBron James wandered around the American Airlines Center court in an apparent stupor – receiving congratulatory handshakes hugs and from Spurs players, surviving a bear hug from Juwan Howard and sharing a moment with Gregg Popovich. If LeBron looked tired, it’s because he was. LeBron said he couldn’t sleep the night before Game 7 victory,…

  14. LeBron James and Dwyane Wade stick together to lead Heat to championship

    Jun 21, 2013, 1:14 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 7

    LeBron James stood on the American Airlines Arena stage and clutched the Bill Russell NBA Finals MVP trophy. To his left, Dwayne held the the Larry O’Brien Championship trophy and rubbed it in amazement. Friends, teammates and superstars, LeBron and Wade ended the 2013 season side by side as NBA champions, just as they’d always…

  15. LeBron James’ clutchiest jumper sends Heat to Game 7 victory, third championship (video)

    Jun 20, 2013, 11:50 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 7

    LeBron James scared to take the big shot? I don’t think so. In the final minute of Game 7 of the NBA Finals, LeBron declined what would have been a good pass to an open Mario Chalmers. Instead, LeBron pulled up for the jumper himself and absolutely buried it. The shot put Miami up by…

  16. Mario Chalmers banks in 30-foot 3-pointer to beat third-quarter buzzer

    Jun 20, 2013, 11:08 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 7

    Mario Chalmers, who knows something about making buzzer-beating 3-pointers in winner-take-all games, inbounded the ball with 5.2 seconds left in the third quarter, immediately got a pass back from Ray Allen and dashed upcourt unimpeded. Then, he pulled up from 30 feet to bank what has so far been the biggest shot of the biggest…

  17. LeBron James finds Dwyane Wade for dunk on wild and loose play (video)

    Jun 20, 2013, 10:47 PM EDT

    Miami Heat players LeBron James and Dwyane Wade stand together during a team practice ahead of Game 7 of the NBA Finals basketball playoff against the San Antonio Spurs in Miami

    Mario Chalmers missed a 3-pointer badly, and LeBron James picked a poor time to gamble for a steal. The result was a Dwyane Wade dunk. Huh? With the Spurs in transition, Danny Green threw a pass to Mike Miller as if he though Miller played for the San Antonio. That meant everyone was out of…

  18. LeBron James absorbs big hit, makes three-point play (video)

    Jun 20, 2013, 10:03 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's James is surrounded by San Antonio Spurs during the first quarter in Game 7 of their NBA Finals basketball playoff in Miami

    LeBron James is really strong. And really lucky. Many players would immediately be knocked to the ground after taking a hit like that, but LeBron stays upright long enough to throw the ball toward the rim. This wasn’t a good look, mind you, but it was good enough to have a prayer. And that prayer…

  19. Tim Duncan goes coast-to-coast for ‘fast’-break dunk (video)

    Jun 20, 2013, 9:43 PM EDT

    BKN-NBA-FINALS-SPURS-HEAT-PRACTICE

    Usually, it’s LeBron James who uses his defensive instincts and speed to get steals and turn them into one-on-none fastbreaks. But 37-year-old Tim Duncan can still move a little bit knows how to poke the ball forward to give himself a huge head start on any trailing defenders. Duncan has become such a smart player,…

  20. Danny Green ill before Game 7

    Jun 20, 2013, 8:57 PM EDT

    Tim Duncan, Danny Green

    After starting the NBA Finals shooting 25-of-38 from beyond the arc and setting a Finals record for 3-pointers, Danny Green cooled off and shot 1-for-5 on 3s and 1-for-7 overall in Game 6. It would errant to pin the Spurs’ loss on him, but they need him to shoot better from the perimeter – even…

  21. Spurs can find comfort in historic Game 7 success of Game 6 losers

    Jun 20, 2013, 6:20 PM EDT

    BKN-NBA-FINALS-SPURS-HEAT-GAME 6

    The Spurs seemed to be in a fragile mental state after losing Game 6 of the NBA Finals, which is pretty understandable. They were moments from winning a championship, and those opportunities are extremely rare, even for a team as accomplished as San Antonio. Now, 48 hours later the Spurs must push all that aside…

  22. Manu Ginobili more likely to repeat Game 6 than Game 5 for Spurs

    Jun 20, 2013, 5:51 PM EDT

    Manu Ginobili

    Manu Ginobili struggled through Games 1 -4, surged in Game 5 and reverted to playing poorly in Game 6. Has Ginobili, a multi-time All-Star and multi-time All-NBA third teamer, become the most confounding player of the 2013 NBA Finals? Not at all. In fact, his play can be pretty easily explained. He’s old. At 35,…

  23. Tim Duncan playing for his legacy in Game 7, too

    Jun 20, 2013, 5:20 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 6

    When the San Antonio Spurs won the 1997 NBA lottery – long before they drafted Tim Duncan – Spurs chairman Peter Holt referenced the Wake Forest big man and said, “The world is our oyster.” Holt very well could have been imagining multiple Most Valuable Player awards and twice as many championships won by his…

  24. Grizzlies, 76ers looking to buy first-round draft picks

    Jun 20, 2013, 3:01 PM EDT

    Rudy Gay, Kwame Brown

    The Grizzlies traded their first-round pick to Cleveland to get under the luxury tax and save about $4 million. Now they can use some of that money to get a first-round pick back. Steve Kyler of HoopsWorld: Memphis is looking to buy a first-round pick, so expect the Grizzlies to get in the mix and…

  25. Report: Ed Pinckney gets second interview with Grizzlies

    Jun 19, 2013, 8:30 PM EDT

    ed-pinckney

    Say whatever you will about how the Grizzlies dumped Lionel Hollins – and there’s a lot to say, most of it not favorable to the team’s management – but they’re conducting this coaching search the right way. They didn’t rush to hire the favored but unproven assistant, Dave Joerger. Instead, they interviewed safer choices like…
