  1. Jeff Teague knows he has a opportunity, but will he grab it?

    Jul 16, 2010, 11:16 AM EDT

    Summer League is all about opportunity. The chance for players to be seen, to make a name for themselves, to find a place to get paid to play basketball. For some, it’s about a chance to step up and find their place in the NBA. Maybe nobody in Las Vegas right now has a bigger…

    Jul 15, 2010, 11:21 PM EDT

    At the beginning of Friday’s game between the Dallas Mavericks and the Washington Wizards, those assembled at the COX Pavilion in Las Vegas were on their feet and craning their necks to get a look at No. 1 overall pick John Wall.

  6. Magic match offer, keep JJ Redick

    Jul 15, 2010, 10:51 PM EDT

    What follows is a sentence that I never thought I would type three years ago: The Orlando Magic had no choice but to match the three-year, $20 million offer to JJ Redick. Orlando did just that Thursday, according to FanHouse (and confirmed by other sources now). Redick came into the league with that Duke hype…

    Jul 15, 2010, 9:32 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade already has LeBron’s back. “He’s not a quitter,” Wade said. “He didn’t quit.” That’s what Wade told the AP Thursday, referring to Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert’s post-decision rant about LeBron James, saying he quit in the Celtics playoffs series. Wade will have none of hat. “LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Kobe Bryant, guys like…

    Jul 15, 2010, 6:59 PM EDT

    It was quite a different scene from the big boys matchup we see in the regular season. The Spurs and Lakers met for a rumble to kick off Thursday at NBA Summer League Las Vegas. Still there were some things of note. Alonzo Gee, a D-League call-up to the Wizards who later signed with the…

    Jul 15, 2010, 6:51 PM EDT

    Earlier today, it was announced that Joe Lacob will be the new owner of the Golden State Warriors.

    Jul 15, 2010, 6:24 PM EDT

    There is a buzz around New Orleans Hornets games at the Summer League in Las Vegas suddenly.

  15. San Antonio targeting token shooter/defender James Jones

    Jul 15, 2010, 1:37 PM EDT

    The three-point shooter/defender is an NBA staple, but for the Spurs it’s embedded even deeper into the team’s overall structure. San Antonio has such productive and intelligent stars that often all a role player has to do is camp in the corner on the offensive end, ready to fire, and play solid defense. Bruce Bowen…

  16. Bobcats are likely looking to flip Erick Dampier's contract, but it won't be easy

    Jul 15, 2010, 12:56 PM EDT

    Erick Dampier’s “instantly” expiring contract was supposedly one of the off-season’s biggest trade chips, yet the Mavs were only able to get Tyson Chandler and Alexis Ajinca in return. That’s not quite in line with Dallas’ lofty summer goals; Donnie Nelson and Mark Cuban were shooting for a sign-and-trade with the biggest free agents, and…

  17. Source: Richard Jefferson likely re-signing with San Antonio

    Jul 15, 2010, 12:26 PM EDT

    Richard Jefferson has certainly had an odd go of it with the Spurs. When he was traded to San Antonio by Milwaukee last summer, it was thought to be one of the off-season’s greatest moves, and combined with the Spurs’ other acquisitions, was supposed to thrust San Antonio back into contention. It didn’t quite work…

  18. It's not just you laughing at David Kahn, Chris Webber is on board, too

    Jul 15, 2010, 11:27 AM EDT

    We’ve struggled to put into words how we perplexed we have been over Minnesota signing Darko Milicic to a four-year, $20 million deal then shipping Al Jefferson out for almost nothing. Chris Webber did it for us: “Good luck.” (Now read that quote again in a deadpan, sarcastic tone. That’s it, now you’ve got it.)…

  20. Knicks talking about Shaquille O'Neal deal, but it's not going to happen

    Jul 15, 2010, 10:36 AM EDT

    The Knicks have talked with the Cleveland Cavaliers about a sign-and-trade that brings them Shaquille O’Neal. Teams talk all the time. They talk like you and your buddies do about trades in your fantasy league. They ask about everything, some of it highly illogical. They do very little of it. And according to the New…
