  1. Celtics Glen Davis going to look at free agency options

    Jun 21, 2011, 8:49 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Atlanta Hawks

    At some point in the future (hopefully not to distant future, but who knows), there will be a free agency period. And when it comes, a battle tested, champion power forward (who struggled this last playoffs) will be on the market in Boston’s Glen Davis. And he is going to see what that market will…

  2. Don’t expect much out of NBA owners, players meeting

    Jun 21, 2011, 8:13 AM EDT

    David Stern

    David Stern tried after last week’s bargaining session to set Tuesday up as the big key day — it is after this session we’ll know if there will be a lockout. But even that was Stern posturing, using some gamesmanship to put the pressure on the players. Which says everything about where we are in…

  3. Report: Warriors in talks to land Robin Lopez from Suns

    Jun 21, 2011, 12:53 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Phoenix Suns, Game 4

    The emergence of Marcin Gortat as a quality center in the Suns up-tempo offense has left them with a problem a lot of teams would like to have — two quality centers, when you remember they have Robin Lopez as well. The Golden State Warriors would like to help them out with that by offering…

  4. Former No. 1 pick LaRue Martin talks bust, bouncing back

    Jun 20, 2011, 9:35 PM EDT

    LaRue Martin

    Over the next few days there will be a lot of talk about the biggest draft busts ever (great list here from Hoopism). It’s a fun exercise, for reasons I’ve never fully understood we as a species enjoy watching others struggle and fail. The latest NBA finals seems even more proof of that. Being the…

  5. Odds on the NBA Draft… if you’re a betting man

    Jun 20, 2011, 8:01 PM EDT

    Gonzaga v Brigham Young

    Gambling, the thing that drives horse racing and the NFL. (What, you don’t think fantasy leagues and weekly pools help the NFL’s popularity?) If you’re more an NBA guy, how about betting on the NBA Draft? The fine folks at Bodog sent over their odds on the NBA draft, and there are some interesting lines…

    ELLIS_MONTA

    Monta Ellis‘ name has been in trade rumors for the past several weeks, but according to Sports Illustrated’s Sam Amick, Warriors general manager Larry Riley said that Warrior fans shouldn’t expect an Ellis deal to happen anytime soon: Riley reiterated that he’s not shopping Ellis: “It’s very likely that he will not be traded on…

  7. Ford: Valanciunas has buyout issues

    Lietuvos Rytas's Jonas Valanciunas (C) j

    The top 5 of the 2011 draft, which has already seen Harrison Barnes and Perry Jones drop out of it, seems to have had yet another shakeup. Per ESPN.com’s Chad Ford: Valanciunas update: Sources say buyout agreement close, however, buyout won’t allow Valanciunas to play in NBA next season. If Valanciunas can’t play in NBA…

  8. Video: Rubio greeted by fans, media in Minnesota

    Jun 20, 2011, 4:38 PM EDT

    Spain v USA

    Only two short years after he was drafted with the 5th overall pick by the Minnesota Timberwolves, point guard prospect Ricky Rubio actually physically arrived in Minnesota on Monday, and there was much rejoicing. According to ESPN1500 Twin Cities, who the video comes courtesy of, Rubio was greeted by “about 200″ fans and media members…

  9. At No. 4, the Cavaliers select… Jonas Valanciunas?

    Jun 20, 2011, 3:40 PM EDT

    Lithuania Euroleague Basketball

    Let’s for a moment assume that the Cleveland Cavaliers will be selecting the No. 4 pick overall. Because, they most likely will be. Teams look at this draft and are not giving up actual quality to move up. There are now multiple reports (including the Morning Journal) that the Cavaliers are leaning heavily toward picking…

  10. Report: Cavaliers will select Kyrie Irving No. 1. Duh.

    Jun 20, 2011, 3:01 PM EDT

    NCAA Hampton Duke Basketball

    In discussing all the chatter that the Cleveland Cavaliers may take Arizona’s Derrick Williams or even Enes Kanter instead of consensus top pick Kyrie Irving of Duke, ESPN’s draft rumor machine Chad Ford said something interesting in a conference call last week: Most of the talk was coming from people around Williams (and Kanter’s agent),…

  11. Report: Knicks trying to trade up to get Jimmer Fredette

    Jun 20, 2011, 2:41 PM EDT

    Texas Christian University v Brigham Young University

    Jimmer Fredette and how he fits in the NBA divides scouts and fans, but there is one thing almost all agree on — he’s a better fit in a wide-open offensive system where he would have more of a green light. For example, Mike D’Antoni’s system with the New York Knicks. Which explains why ESPN’s…

  12. Manu Ginobili working out but not back on court yet

    Jun 20, 2011, 1:55 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzles v San Antionio Spurs - Game Two

    At the end of July, Manu Ginobili will join his fellow Argentinians on the national team, which will host and compete in the FIBA Americas tournament (where London Olympic berths will be on the line). But for now, he is staying off the court on doctor’s orders, he told Mike Monroe of the Express-News. Ginobili…

    dwane Casey

    We told you last week he was the frontrunner. Now it looks like in the next couple days it will become official.

    It’s not there yet, but it looks like the sale of the Philadelphia 76ers is getting closer, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. Comcast-Spectacor is still in serious discussions to sell the team to a group of investors led by New York billionaire Joshua Harris. Comcast-Spectacor owner Ed Snider is expected to sell 90 percent of…

  15. Wolves still shopping No. 2 pick, odd rumors abound

    Jun 20, 2011, 12:50 PM EDT

    Derrick Williams

    We know this much — Derrick Williams out of Arizona will be the No. 2 pick in this draft. (Don’t buy the lines that the Cavs might take him No. 1, it’s not happening.) What we don’t know — who will be drafting Williams. With the draft just four days away, Minnesota is working hard…

  16. Five NBA Draft sleepers to watch

    Jun 20, 2011, 12:17 PM EDT

    Reggie Jackson, Verdell Jones

    Really, this is almost an entire draft of sleepers. After the first two picks — Duke’s Kyrie Irving and Arizona’s Derrick Williams — there are enough questions and risks that a lot of guys could be considered sleepers. Teams will tell you the difference between picks No. 10 and No. 25 in this draft is…

  17. Marcus Morris likes his own game. A lot.

    Jun 20, 2011, 11:20 AM EDT

    Virginia Commonwealth v Kansas

    Marcus Morris should have some swagger — he was the leading scorer on a very good Kansas team last season. He has a good back-to-the-basket game, is a good rebounder and works hard. He has a jump shot you need to respect (needs to improve it, but it’s nice) and he can put the ball…

  18. Looking for big draft day trade? Watch Andre Iguodala.

    Jun 20, 2011, 10:46 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat

    Andre Iguodala trade rumors have been flying around everywhere since the season ended, with the Clippers (Chris Kaman plus parts) leading the long parade of suitors. Those efforts to trade Iggy are heating up and he could be moved on or before draft day, according to Alex Kennedy at Hoopsworld. Meanwhile, Philadelphia wants to move…

  19. Brian Shaw to interview to be Pacers assistant coach

    Brian Shaw

    Just a few years back, Brian Shaw got the chance to interview to be the head coach of the Indiana Pacers. Didn’t work out, they went with Jim O’Brien instead. Now, Shaw is back in Indiana interviewing, but this time to be the lead assistant for Frank Vogel. That’s what Mike Wells of the Indianapolis…

  20. Jimmer Fredette will go in the lottery… but will he succeed?

    Jun 20, 2011, 8:46 AM EDT

    Gonzaga v Brigham Young

    General managers came out of the NBA Draft Combine saying Jimmer Fredette was brilliant in the interviews. Then he has gone into a series of workouts for teams and impressed by holding his own against other top point guards in the draft. He’s tried his best to answer the many questions about how his game…
