  1. Report: Allan Houston may be named new Knicks GM. A win for irony.

    Jul 22, 2010, 3:52 PM EDT

    Allan Houston, the former shooting guard famed for having one of the worst contracts in the history of the New York Knicks, may soon be the guy handing out the contracts for his former team. According to Ric Bucher of ESPN, Houston is a front-runner to fill the vacant general manager position for the Knicks.…

  2. LeBron, Wade and Bosh could be worth $1 billion to South Florida

    Jul 22, 2010, 3:21 PM EDT

    Go ahead and mock LeBron for taking the easy way out in Miami. Make the SuperFriends your most hated team. They don’t care, and the Miami Heat don’t care. Because money talks. The Lakers had (still hold?) the trophy for most hated team in the league, and they generate more money than any team in…

  3. Coach K talks Team USA

    Jul 22, 2010, 2:27 PM EDT

    Mike Krzyzewski talks about getting around not having enough centers on the roster and dealing with a young team. Although, still older than the kids he normally deals with.

  4. Who really is on Chris Paul's trade demand list?

    Jul 22, 2010, 2:02 PM EDT

    Chris Paul wants to get traded, we get it. What we don’t get is where, exactly. The first report from Ken Berger of CBSSports.com said the Knicks, Magic and Lakers were on the list. But that’s not what ESPN’s Chris Broussard heard, and he is probably as well connected with LeBron’s people and the marketing…

  5. Thunder owners extend GM Sam Presti, then let basketball people make basketball decisions. Crazy.

    Jul 22, 2010, 1:38 PM EDT

    Look at the lineup of teams where ownership lets the basketball people make basketball decisions: Spurs, Celtics, Lakers, Magic, Thunder. Notice the similarities there? Oklahoma City today announced it has extended its deal with general manager Sam Presti, the team announced today. That is the best move they made this off-season (and they’ve made a…

  6. New Orleans, you don't have to trade Chris Paul

    Jul 22, 2010, 12:49 PM EDT

    Larry Coon, the salary cap guru employed by ESPN (you are going to read a lot of him next summer when the lockout comes), made a great point this morning: Three years ago, Kobe Bryant went ballistic. He was frustrated by the Lakers roster, the inability to win, so Kobe demanded a trade. He ripped…

  7. Tracy McGrady tries to impress Chicago Bulls next

    Jul 22, 2010, 12:05 PM EDT

    UPDATE 12:05 pm: McGrady made this tweet today: Clippers, Lakers, Bulls, Heat Which are the four teams he mentioned last night. But read on, as we explain the Clippers seem to have no interest, and the Heat are saying privately they are not going there. You can do the math from there.8:44 am: He is…

  8. Luke Ridnour officially part of Timberwolves, may be team's best point guard playing in America

    Jul 22, 2010, 11:51 AM EDT

    Luke Ridnour could start for the Minnesota Timberwolves at point guard next season. He’s certainly going to push Jonny Flynn. On that level, the Ridnour signing by Minnesota — made official on Wednesday, for four-years, $16 million –is a good one. I like Ridnour, like his game. I just keep trying to figure out the…

  9. Spurs pick up Summer League sharpshooter Gary Neal

    Jul 22, 2010, 11:22 AM EDT

    The Spurs have mastered the art of the quiet off-season move, so file this one away with the others: San Antonio has agree to a three-year deal with Summer Leaguer Gary Neal, according to Jonathan Givony of Draft Express (via Ridiculous Upside). There really isn’t an opportunity for Neal to waltz into consistent minutes, but…

  10. Epitaph for Michael Redd's career as a Buck

    Jul 22, 2010, 11:04 AM EDT

    The Bucks have made all kinds of moves this summer, and none of them have looked particularly good for Michael Redd. Re-signing John Salmons, a Redd quasi-replacement, was a start. Then they picked up Corey Maggette via trade, who would certainly hack into the minutes of a healthy Redd. Chris Douglas-Roberts and Keyon Dooling, too,…

  11. Yes Magic, you would team up with other superstars. In fact you did.

    Jul 22, 2010, 10:13 AM EDT

    Magic Johnson has done what we all do — we remember ourselves as better and more noble than we really were. We rewrite our personal histories to fit those better selves. Remember how Magic Johnson agreed with Michael Jordan? How he said the two would never have teamed up with other superstars because they were…

  12. Yao Ming not sure how good he can be anymore

    Jul 22, 2010, 9:48 AM EDT

    Yao Ming has doubts. In a refreshingly frank interview with China’s xinhuanet (via Slam), Yao expressed concerns about how far he can come back after a serious foot injury that sidelined him all of last season. “I have no idea if I can return the peak of my form,” the seven-time All-star center told China…

  13. Clippers ask about Andre Iguodala trade

    Jul 22, 2010, 9:13 AM EDT

    The Clippers have a pretty nice roster — Baron Davis at the point, Eric Gordon at the two, Blake Griffin as the power forward and Chris Kaman anchoring the middle. What they lack is an attacking wing player at the three. They struck out not only with LeBron James but with all the big name…

  14. Derrick Rose says he is never leaving Chicago. Never.

    Jul 21, 2010, 8:59 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose apparently does not listen to or take advice from Justin Beiber. Which shows he is smart. He’s also not taking the advice of The Fray. And finally, he is clearly not listening to or taking the advice of the best of the three — Romeo Void. Rose said “never.” As in he is…

  15. Report: Chris Paul to pressure Hornets to trade him

    Jul 21, 2010, 8:34 PM EDT

    Dell Demps, welcome to your nightmare. The brand new general manager of the Hornets is going to be met by Chris Paul trying to force his way out of New Orleans before the start of this season, according to Ken Berger at CBSsports.com. He wants out,” said the person, who has been briefed on Paul’s…

  16. Quasi-German Chris Kaman also out for the World Championships

    Jul 21, 2010, 7:47 PM EDT

    When Dirk Nowitzki was ruled out for this summer’s World Championships, Germany was ruled out with him. The German national team’s roster is beyond thin, and their only other notable player, Chris Kaman, is barely German. Oh, and not even playing. According to Marc Stein of ESPN.com, Kaman’s involvement with the national team hinged on…

  17. Rashad McCants had reason to miss Summer League, but he still is on outside looking in

    Jul 21, 2010, 6:46 PM EDT

    Rashad McCants was scheduled to be in Las Vegas for Summer League, he was on the Cleveland roster. A guy with game but who was not in the league last year due to his reputation as a huge head case — like coaches asking him to go see a psychiatrist head case (check out the…

  18. Matt Barnes weighing his options, not loving them

    Jul 21, 2010, 5:53 PM EDT

    Matt Barnes is as indecisive about where he will play next year as Jessica Alba is about her hair color. Well, to be fair, Barnes thought he had made a decision, and tweeted he was going to Toronto Monday. Except a few guys in suits forgot to do that math. So he is back on…

  19. David Lee out for World Championships, will not need surgery

    Jul 21, 2010, 4:32 PM EDT

    UPDATE 4:32 pm: Lee has been diagnosed with “mallet finger” which is when the tendon that allows control of the part of the finger beyond the last joint comes off. The treatment: wear a split on your finger for six weeks. But this is fairly common and treatable. 3:22 pm: You had a feeling things…

  20. Derrick Rose gets his wish, he is now the face of the Bulls

    Jul 21, 2010, 4:25 PM EDT

    There was talk that one reason LeBron James soured on Chicago as the place he would be taking his talents was the shadow cast by Michael Jordan. Let’s hope that was not the case, because great players embrace the challenge of living up to the past of a legendary franchise (see Kevin Garnett and Kobe…
