    Jul 20, 2012, 6:47 PM EDT

    Courtney Lee, Paul George

    We told you a couple days ago that Boston had reached a sign-and-trade deal to get Courtney Lee from the Rockets — and that is a beautiful fit for Boston. They get a guy who can defend on the perimeter, knock down threes and come off the bench. A defensively better version of Ray Allen.…

    Turkey Basketball Euroleague Final Four

    It’s getting closer and closer to decision time for Andrei Kirilenko.

    It’s one of the advantage professional athletes have today that they didn’t even a decade ago — with twitter or online video players can speak directly to fans without the filter (and occasional snark) of the media. That’s what Derrick Rose has done — he has a video message for his fans thanking them for…

    Spain's Pau Gasol gestures during their

    When Spain chose which athlete would carry its flag into the opening ceremonies of the London Olympics, the soccer-mad country chose its most decorated and best athlete — Rafael Nada.

    New York Knicks forward Amare Stoudemire waits to take a foul shot against the New Orleans Hornets in the second half of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    Be ready for failure, Knicks fans. Amare Stoudemire set the parameters for next season while speaking with MSG during a Knicks Summer League contest (as transcribed by Newsday). And like you want a competitor to say, he set the bar very high. “Anything less than a championship,” the power forward said on MSG Thursday during…

    Daryl Morey

    Welcome to The Inbounds, touching on a big idea of the day. It could be news, it could be history, it could be a tangent, it could be love. OK, it’s probably not love. Enjoy. Someone asked me two weeks ago why it was that everyone thought Daryl Morey was so good at his job.…

    Michael Beasley, Darko Milicic, Anthony Randolph, and Martell Webster. Those are the four main guys Minnesota has moved out this off-season. Decide for yourself who Kevin Love was talking about when he said this to the Pioneer Press (via SLAM). “If we get everybody back healthy, with Ricky (Rubio) back healthy, if (Brandon) Roy comes…

    Damian Lillard, Austin Rivers

    Our man Scott Schroeder was just telling you, Damian Lillard is on his way to being the NBA Summer League MVP in Las Vegas. Which is nice. Come this fall when training camp opens that award will matter about as much as his two Big Sky Player of the Year awards. Still, as Summer League…

    Raymond Felton

    The second Raymond Felton was back with the Knicks, Portland fans celebrated he was gone and were all to happy to tell the tale about how terrible he was last season on the West Coast. The “Raymond Felton is fat” idea gained a lot of momentum online. Felton heard it, heard all of it. He…

    Celtics jersey

    It’s about the money. It’s always about the money. And putting a small 2-inch by 2-inch adverting patch on the shoulder of NBA jerseys can generate a lot of money, NBA Deputy Commissioner told the NBA owners on Thursday. Then he said the same things to reporters after, as reported by Kevin Arnovitz at ESPN.…

  15. Dwight Howard’s agent says he will become free agent after season

    Jul 20, 2012, 7:55 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    This really is not a game changer. It isn’t. And I’ll explain why in a minute. But Dwight Howard’s agent Don Fegan made a splash late Thursday saying Howard would test the free agent waters next summer regardless of where he is traded (or if he is traded). Here is the quote from Fegan to…

    Jul 20, 2012, 12:39 AM EDT

    NBA Finals Game 3: Los Angeles Lakers v Boston Celtics

    If you have instant replay — the ability to get close calls right — you should use it. Better to drag the end of a game out a little and have the calls be right than to rush and be wrong. Along those lines, the owners voted Thursday to expand the use of instant replay…

    LAS VEGAS — Seven days in Las Vegas is a long time regardless of the occasion, but there are times that it has seemed particularly long this week as four games in a gym watching fringe NBA players play basketball can surprisingly take its toll on a guy. There are always a few moments that…

    Houston Rockets Introduce Jeremy Lin

    Jeremy Lin was in Houston, saying all the right things and sounding excited to be in Texas at his press conference on Thursday. He talked about wanting to win, wanting to be part of the community, how good the fans have been to him. But the interesting part of the story is still how he…

    Dwight Howard

    On one hand this is not new news — everyone involved knew Cleveland would not trade for Andrew Bynum as part of a three-team deal that sends Dwight Howard to the Lakers unless Bynum was willing to commit long term. And he might, in the past Cleveland was one of the three teams on a…

    LAS VEGAS — Thomas Robinson has been one of the more underwhelming first round picks at the NBA Summer League, though that’s partially due to the high expectations bestowed upon the first round pick.
