  1. Al Jefferson traded to Jazz for picks. Minnesota's self destruction continues.

    Jul 13, 2010, 2:02 PM EDT

    Al Jefferson is not perfect, but the man had two 20-10 years, is 25, and gave Minnesota 17 and 9 last year trying to come back from a knee surgery he should be past this season. Minnesota’s telegraphing of trading him was so bad Utah was able to get him for two first round pick,…

  2. Juwan Howard about to join Heat

    Jul 13, 2010, 1:05 PM EDT

    This is the kind of pickup we’ve been expecting from the Heat. Veteran — and we really mean veteran: 16 seasons and age 37 — forward Juwan Howard is closing in on a deal to join the Miami Heat, according to Ira Winderman writing for the Sun Sentinel. “Juwan wants to get a ring and…

  3. Bobcats out of big trade; Barbosa for Turkoglu still on

    Jul 13, 2010, 12:40 PM EDT

    Michael Jordan may made a descent owner after all. He had second thoughts about shipping out two solid big men — Tyson Chandler and Boris Diaw — for one nice point guard — Jose Calderon. He was right. The Bobcats are now out of the reported big three-team deal, according to Ken Berger at CBSSports.…

  4. Chris Paul allegedly promises big three in New York

    Jul 13, 2010, 12:12 PM EDT

    I was not invited to Carmelo Anthony’s wedding. Yes, I am disappointed, but I may send him a toaster anyway. So I certainly didn’t hear this first hand. Neither did the New York Post, which reported about statements there they got it from a person at the wedding. So, to recap: Second hand information from…

  5. Dirk Nowitzki: "I want Shaq"

    Jul 13, 2010, 11:29 AM EDT

    The Dallas Mavericks are trying to decide if they want to take on Shquille O’Neal and all that comes with him. But their star player has weighed in on that: “I want Shaq.” That’s what Dirk Nowitzki told a German publication (via the fantastic DallasBasketball.com). The question is, do the Mavericks really need him? They…

  6. Kobe Bryant recruiting one time nemesis Raja Bell to join Lakers

    Jul 13, 2010, 10:19 AM EDT

    You want to earn Kobe Bryant’s respect? Battle him. Get up for the task and challenge him. Go at him. Compete. Kobe will still win a lot of those battles — because he is Kobe — but he respects the effort. Raja Bell battled Kobe. In 2006 he taunted Kobe, was physical with him and…

  7. David Stern thinks LeBron might have handled all this better. Just like the rest of us.

    Jul 13, 2010, 9:45 AM EDT

      Here are the words of the man himself, speaking at a press conference after an owners meeting. Maverick Carter is really steamed somewhere after hearing this. Dan Gilbert was less steamed and more poor.

  8. Tiago Splitter is officially a Spur, and you don't realize how big this is

    Jul 13, 2010, 9:35 AM EDT

    You know what deal Western Conference executives have been raving about this week in Vegas? Tiago Splitter to the Spurs. A deal that became official now and at an incredible price of three years for $11 million. Splitter clearly wants to be here as a he took a paycut to leave Saski Baskonia, the team…

  9. Luke Ridnour nears four-year deal with Timberwolves to add to team's point guard collection

    Jul 13, 2010, 8:47 AM EDT

    The Minnesota Timberwolves brought in Kurt Rambis to run the triangle, but he had to partially abandon or alter many of those sets last year because he didn’t have the right personnel to do it. It was a team where the offense had to start with a slashing point guard, but the triangle is not…

  10. Nate Robinson is close to deal to remain in Boston

    Jul 13, 2010, 8:20 AM EDT

    Shrek and donkey will be back for another go around. Nate Robinson is close to a deal that will keep the backup guard in green for another season, according to his agent Aaron Goodwin, talking to the Boston Herald. “Things are going well,” Goodwin said. “We’re just trying to get something worked out. But both…

  11. Fear DeMarcus Cousins, for he is a beast

    Jul 13, 2010, 12:31 AM EDT

    How did this guy fall to No. 5 again? One Summer League game is a meaninglessly small sample size. But it was big enough to make you realize this — DeMarcus Cousins could be a beast in the NBA. He is a big man in a world of big men, but he has touch and…

  12. Barbosa, Boris Diaw, Tyson Chandler, Hedo Turkoglu trade on the rocks due to MJ

    Jul 12, 2010, 11:57 PM EDT

    UPDATE 11:57 pm: This deal may fall apart by the time you wake up in the morning. The seemingly omni-present Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo tweets that this seemingly done deal is now on the rocks. You can thank MJ. Charlotte owner Michael Jordan has had “second thoughts” on trade with Toronto and deal is suddenly…

  13. Miami is closer to filling out its roster than you think — and you know these guys

    Jul 12, 2010, 11:24 PM EDT

    Mike Miller has now agreed to terms with the Miami Heat, according to our man Ira Winderman down in Miami. That brings the Heat roster up to six signed — Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, Chris Bosh, Mario Chalmers, Udonis Haslem and now Miller. That’s the top six of a contender. But how do they fill…

  14. Wizards sign Hilton Armstrong to one-year deal

    Jul 12, 2010, 11:02 PM EDT

    According to Michael Lee of the Washington Post, the Washington Wizards have signed center Hilton Armstrong to a one-year deal.  Armstrong was the 12th overall pick in the 2006 draft, but he has yet to do much in his NBA career. Last season, Armstrong averaged 2.2 points, 2.5 rebounds, and .4 blocks per game while…

  15. Utah closing in on deal to get Al Jefferson

    Jul 12, 2010, 10:47 PM EDT

    Would you trade Carlos Boozer for Al Jefferson? That’s what the Utah Jazz are close to doing, as they are close to a deal that would ship the Jefferson to Utah — and maybe send no players back to Minnesota, according to Marc Stein of ESPN. Utah has a $14 million trade exception from the…

  16. David Stern not a fan of "The Decision" but is fan of right of players to choose

    Jul 12, 2010, 10:02 PM EDT

    It wasn’t LeBron’s decision that bothered David Stern, it was “The Decision.” In press conference in Las Vegas Monday, David Stern said LeBron James was more than free to make any decision he wanted, as were Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade. He credited Miami with clearing the cap space to pull off the coup. Tampering?…

  17. Mavs pick up Spurs alumnus Ian Mahinmi on the cheap

    Jul 12, 2010, 8:40 PM EDT

    Brendan Haywood is the only center the Mavs have under contract for next season, so rotation bigs remain fairly high on Dallas’ off-season wish list. Erick Dampier will soon be shipped out to allow the Mavericks to benefit from his instantly expiring contract, and optimally the Mavs will need two more players who can hold…

    Jul 12, 2010, 8:08 PM EDT

    David Stern has just announced that he will fine Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert $100,000 for his open letter to Cleveland fans, which Gilbert wrote shortly after LeBron James announced on ESPN that he would sign with the Miami Heat. When explaining the fine, Stern called Gilbert’s letter both “ill-advised” and “imprudent.”  Stern was not a…

  19. Pacers get $33 million to stay in. Would you stay in Indy for that?

    Jul 12, 2010, 7:51 PM EDT

    Does your city have an extra $33 million laying around? Indianapolis does, apparently.

  20. Dan Gilbert disagrees with Rev. Jesse Jackson's comment's about him

    Jul 12, 2010, 5:11 PM EDT

    Earlier this week, the Reverend Jesse Jackson issued a statement that said Dan Gilbert’s open letter personified a “slave master mentality,” and that Gilbert viewed James as a “runaway slave.” In case you missed it earlier today, here is video of Jackson defending his views on Gilbert.  On Monday, Gilbert released an extremely brief statement…
