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

    Jun 20, 2011, 2:41 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jun 20, 2011, 1:55 PM EST

    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. The Dallas Morning News is reporting that current Mavericks assistant Dwane Casey is on the verge of being named the Toronto head coach. Just got a call from a Toronto source saying that…

    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…

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

    Jun 20, 2011, 12:50 PM EST

    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…

  6. Five NBA Draft sleepers to watch

    Jun 20, 2011, 12:17 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jun 20, 2011, 11:20 AM EST

    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…

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

    Jun 20, 2011, 10:46 AM EST

    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…

  9. Brian Shaw to interview to be Pacers assistant coach

    Jun 20, 2011, 10:07 AM EST

    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…

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

    Jun 20, 2011, 8:46 AM EST

    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…

  11. Dwight Howard thinks Arenas just wasn’t used right

    Jun 20, 2011, 8:10 AM EST

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    The rest of us saw a guy just past his prime. Not Magic GM Otis Smith, who traded for Gilbert Arenas (and his massive contract) last season because he thought Arenas could change the fortunes of the franchise. Dwight Howard saw the same thing. The Magic’s best player and the guy they desperately want to…

  12. Kobe Bryant and Mike Brown getting along swimmingly, triangle ditched

    Jun 19, 2011, 10:12 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers' Kobe Bryant talks during a news conference after the Lakers were knocked out of the NBA basketball playoffs in Los Angeles

    There was a lot of intrigue when Mike Brown was hired because the move wasn’t cleared with Kobe Bryant. After all, the franchise is still Kobe’s now that Phil’s gone (or regardless of Phil depending on your viewpoint) until he retires. So Bryant should have been brought in on the conversation. And the idea of…

  13. Report: Cleveland shopping for Rudy Gay?

    Jun 19, 2011, 7:00 PM EST

    Rudy Gay

    From Fox Sports Ohio’s Sam Amico: A couple insiders have said the Cavs again are exploring some sort of deal for Memphis forward Rudy Gay. Perhaps their best selling point would be to mention how well the Grizzlies fared in the playoffs without him. via NBA notes: Rumors heat up as draft nears. Gay continues to…

  14. Charlotte Bobcats not brave enough (read: too smart) to draft Jimmer Fredette

    Jun 19, 2011, 5:00 PM EST

    Gonzaga v Brigham Young

    If Jimmer Fredette’s name drops on down to the No.9 spot in Thursdays draft, it can just keep on sliding, the Bobcats want no part of it. From the Charlotte Observer: The team has shuttled about two dozen players through Charlotte for workouts. Fredette has not been among them and isn’t on the schedule for…

  15. The Circle of Stupidity is complete: Suns expected to buy out Vince Carter

    Jun 19, 2011, 3:00 PM EST

    Vince Carter,

    This is like some crazy train of poor decision making and it just jumps from car to car to car. Let me try and trace this back for you. Hedo Turkoglu looks awesome in the 2009 NBA playoffs, helping the Orlando Magic make it all the way to the NBA Finals. He rebounds, runs point…

  16. Cavaliers big on Valanciunas who may not even be around for two years

    Jun 19, 2011, 1:00 PM EST

    Lietuvos Rytas's Jonas Valanciunas (C) j

    The Cavs have a great shot at getting not just one building block for their rebuilding franchise in this year’s draft, but two. Even in a weak class like this one, having two top-five picks is sure to land you some significant talent if you use the picks correctly. And while they continue to debate…

  17. Report: Pat Riley has sent word to nix trade offers for any of the Big 3

    Jun 19, 2011, 11:00 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Two

    As soon as the Heat started struggling, all the way back in November of 2010, the ideas started coming in. “What if they traded Chris Bosh?” The ideas continued all the way through the Finals including a few insane people talking about how they need to trade LeBron James. Sorry, I don’t care how much…

  18. Knicks targeting Jonny Flynn?

    Jun 19, 2011, 8:59 AM EST

    Jonny Flynn

    Back when Mike D’Antoni first took over as head coach of the Knicks and they were trying to get back on their feet, the Knicks signed a player they thought would be the point guard of the future. With D’Antoni’s system so reliant on a distributing playmaker, grabbing a versatile point guard who had shown…

  19. Players understand a lockout will kill league’s momentum

    Jun 18, 2011, 9:04 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks Victory Parade

    It’s the one question I’ve been asked by seemingly every radio show host, every friend in the last few weeks — how can the NBA go on a lockout now? Television ratings are up — this was the most watched finals since Shaq and Kobe were teammates — and that reflects an increased interest around…

  20. Lawrence Frank “blew away” Pistons in interview

    Jun 18, 2011, 7:18 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Atlanta Hawks

    Lawrence Frank — the former Nets head man and current lead assistant to Doc Rivers in Boston — may have a real shot at a second head coaching gig. Frank hit a home run in his interview in Detroit, according to the Toronto Sun. (Raptors leading candidate Dwane Casey) is slated to interview in Detroit…
