    Jun 23, 2011, 2:14 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Atlanta Hawks

    While the Spurs deny it, comments from other teams make it look like Tony Parker is being shopped around like he is on QVC. How serious those talks are is the question. In the case of a Hoopsworld report, things got very close with the Portland Trail Blazers. The San Antonio Spurs and Portland Trail…

  2. Are Cavaliers taking a risk with taking a Duke player No. 1?

    Jun 23, 2011, 1:47 AM EDT

    Arizona v Duke

    For the last couple decades, Duke has been the best, most consistent college basketball program in the nation. They have the Final Fours, the NCAA titles to prove it. And they have sent a lot of players on to the NBA. But Duke players have not thrived at the next level. In fact they have…

    UPDATE 11:10 pm: NBA Commissioner David Stern released this statement to the Associated Press when asked to comment on what Derek Fisher and Billy Hunter said of the last proposal from owners. “Players have benefited from the current system more than the teams.

    Parker Bibby

    Spurs guard Tony Parker‘s name has been getting thrown around in trade rumors for the last few days, but the 2007 Finals MVP is hoping that he will still be a Spur when the dust settles after draft day. Yahoo! Sports’ Marc Spears has the report: Tony Parker says he loves Spurs and wants to…

  6. Are the Spurs targeting Klay Thompson?

    Jun 22, 2011, 7:04 PM EDT

    Klay Thompson

    According to multiple sources, including ESPN’s Ric Bucher and the Los Angeles Times’ Mark Heisler, the player the San Antonio Spurs are attempting to trade into the lottery for is Klay Thompson.

  7. Report: Lakers offered Odom for No. 2 pick, Wolves said no

    Jun 22, 2011, 6:31 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    There might be something to the idea that the Lakers are shopping around Lamar Odom. Still, this one seems a little fantastic — and if true surprising. The Lakers offered Sixth Man of the Year Lamar Odom for the No. 2 pick, but Minnesota turned it down, according to the Los Angeles Times. The Lakers…

  8. Winderman: Irving, Kanter as top picks? This is one odd draft.

    Jun 22, 2011, 5:52 PM EDT

    Michigan v Duke

    Quality? That’s debatable. Depth? That’s the consensus. Bizarre? Apparently that’s the ticket. The 2011 NBA Draft comes off as much as circus as orderly restocking of rosters. Chet Kammerer, a long-time NBA talent evaluator who currently works alongside Pat Riley as the Heat’s vice president of player personnel, said Wednesday that any process that starts…

  9. Steve Nash will definitely stay in Phoenix, unless he doesn’t

    Jun 22, 2011, 5:41 PM EDT

    Channing Frye Steve Nash

    Here’s the full report, from The Arizona Republic’s Paul Coro: It was appropriate that Steve Nash had to reiterate his stance on his Suns commitment on the same day his team president, Lon Babby, needed to reiterate the franchise’s commitment to him. Babby again stated that the Suns will not be trading Nash, nor have they initiated talks…

  10. Minnesota says it’s taking Kanter at No. 2. Smokescreen?

    Jun 22, 2011, 5:35 PM EDT

    Enes Kanter

    UPDATE 5:35 pm: I am far from sold on this, but the Timberwolves have been telling anyone who would listen all day long they are taking Kanter No. 2, enough so that DraftExpress has bought in and moved Kanter to the No. 2 pick. People are starting to believe them. Utah would be just fine…

  11. Kings exercise options on Evans, Cousins, Casspi

    Jun 22, 2011, 5:34 PM EDT

    Tyreke Evans All-Star

    In a move that should shock nobody, the Sacramento Kings have exercised their team options on DeMarcus Cousins, Tyreke Evans, and Omri Casspi for the 2012-13 season. All three players are still on their rookie deals, and will make a combined $13 million in 2012-13. Evans struggled with injuries and had a bit of a…

  12. Spurs deny shopping Tony Parker. Of course they do.

    Jun 22, 2011, 4:44 PM EDT

    French NBA player Tony Parker walks on t

    And now we bring you the story that we all knew was coming today like we knew the sun would rise in the East and that Wednesday would be national chocolate éclair day. (What, you didn’t know about that?) The San Antonio Spurs have denied they are shopping Tony Parker around. This is required to…

  13. Enes Kanter says he’s the best player in the draft

    Jun 22, 2011, 4:38 PM EDT

    Enes Kanter

    Turkish center prospect Enes Kanter is something of a mystery to NBA teams, since he was forced to sit on the bench for Kentucky all season long after the NCAA ruled him ineligible. On draft media day, however, Kanter made one thing crystal clear: he does not lack for confidence. SB Nation’s Mike Prada has…

  14. Have the Pistons decided on Tristan Thompson?

    Jun 22, 2011, 4:01 PM EDT

    Arizona v Texas

    CBSSports.com’s Ken Berger has the report: With top prospects in New York Thursday for media and service responsibilities, a person familiar with the draft discussions said the Pistons appear to have zeroed in on Texas small forward Tristan Thompson with the eighth pick.

    Ilgauskas_Zydrunas

    According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, veteran Heat center Zydrunas Ilgauskas has decided to pick up his $1.4 million player option for next season. Ilgauskas started 51 games for the Heat last season, but was extremely ineffective in the playoffs and was essentially benched against Boston, Chicago, and Dallas. After the season, there had been…

  16. Derek Fisher says NBA far, far away from labor peace

    Jun 22, 2011, 3:20 PM EDT

    Derek Fisher

    All that “substantial progress” in the NBA’s labor negotiations? Don’t hang your hat on it. That’s essentially what National Basketball Players Assocition President Derek Fisher told Stephen A. Smith on ESPN 1050 radio in New York (via Sports Radio Interviews). And he was not backing down over a lockout. “If the owners decide they want…

  17. Report: Brown wants Lakers to get Anderson Varejao

    Jun 22, 2011, 2:22 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Atlanta Hawks

    The Lakers need to inject the roster with energy, particularly on defense. Anderson Varejao brings energy and effort. New Lakers coach Mike Brown used to coach Anderson Varejao. So, not a huge leap of logic to a report from Sam Amico of Fox Sports. Huge leap of logic to see it happen, but not the…

  18. Mark Cuban and the “we’re the champs” legal defense

    Jun 22, 2011, 1:58 PM EDT

    Mavericks owner Mark Cuban polishes the championship trophy during an event held to celebrate their 2011 NBA championship in Dallas, Texas

    Even in court, Mark Cuban is bragging about his championship. And being damn funny. Remember that Cuban is being sued by Ross Perot Jr., the son of the former presidential candidate and a five percent owner of the Mavericks. His partnership (Hillwood Center Partnership) used to own the majority of the Mavericks but sold to…

  19. Report: Danny Ainge willing to trade anyone on the roster

    Jun 22, 2011, 1:38 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks - Game Four

    On one side of the scale, you have Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen, Paul Pierce, Rajon Rondo and Doc Rivers all coming back, and you think they are not going to break this group up yet, they are going to make one more run. On the other side of the scale, you have the Kendrick Perkins…

  20. Video: Kevin Durant’s monster dunk at Drew League

    Jun 22, 2011, 12:34 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Dallas Mavericks - Game Two

    During the summer, a lot of NBA players take part in various “leagues” around the nation. Like the Drew League in the inner city of Los Angeles. There is money raised for a good cause, and some good hoops played. Kevin Durant was at the Drew League this week (with a lot of other stars)…
