  1. It’s decision time in Brooklyn — do they re-sign Lopez now?

    Jul 11, 2012, 10:22 AM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v Atlanta Hawks

    If the Dwight Howard trade comes down in the next 24 to 48 hours it is because of this — everybody had to move on with their “Plan B” if Howard wasn’t coming. Nowhere is that more evident than Brooklyn. The Nets have been Howard’s preferred destination and the franchise has spent the better part…

    At some point on Wednesday, Jeremy Lin will sign an offer sheet with the Houston Rockets, a four-year deal with the first couple years at $5 million per and the final two years loaded up as a poison pill at nearly $10 million per. And as soon as the paperwork arrives, the Knicks will match…

    Jul 11, 2012, 7:45 AM EDT

    Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    Deron Williams will say this wasn’t about the money, and to a degree that is true — he would have made a lot of money wherever he chose to play. So really, him deciding to stay with the Brooklyn Nets was about the franchise and where he wanted to play. But it is still a…

    Jul 10, 2012, 6:54 PM EDT

    Andris Biedrins

    It isn’t just Andris Biedrins’ free throw stroke that has gone missing.

    Jul 10, 2012, 6:11 PM EDT

    Rashard Lewis Wizards

    UPDATE 6:11 pm: According to Brian Windhorst at ESPN this is a two-year deal worth $2.8 million. Other reports have suggested the second year of the deal is a player option. Not expensive. Still not a huge risk. But in that second year if he doesn’t pan out the Heat could have really used that…

    Jul 10, 2012, 4:22 PM EDT

    Brook Lopez

    The Brooklyn Nets may be left without Dwight Howard. It’s in flux. Which is putting it very kindly. What the Nets don’t want is to be left with nothing. So they have picked up the pace in talks with their own free agents — Brook Lopez and Kris Humphries — reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo…

    Jul 10, 2012, 2:19 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    If Dwight Howard is going to be a Brooklyn Net anytime soon, either Magic and Nets are going to have to find another team to facilitate this or they are going to have to figure out a two-team trade. Something they have been unable to do for a year. Talks are still going on to…

    Jul 10, 2012, 12:51 PM EDT

    Andray Blatche

    Priority No. 1 for the Washington Wizards had to be changing the locker room culture. It made judging players impossible. As yourself this question: If Rajon Rondo was drafted to Wizards and John Wall came out of college paired with the veteran leaders in Boston, how would they be different players now? So Washington has…

    Was there anything less suspenseful than Tim Duncan’s “free agency?” I was more surprised at the end of the movie “Gettysburg.” But Duncan’s free agency has ended, reports Johnny Ludden at Yahoo. Duncan’s representatives and the Spurs are finalizing a few items, but the structure has been agreed upon. The contract is expected to be…
