  1. Carmelo Anthony rumors update (please bring plenty of salt)

    Sep 21, 2010, 8:32 PM EDT

    There are almost more rumors about Carmelo Anthony out there than there are people laughing at David Hasselhoff after last night. Almost. We’re going to talk about some key ones, but first we start with the trade rumor primer, just as a reminder: Every leaked rumor has a motive behind it. Nobody at this stage…

  2. Nenad Krstic has finger surgery, will miss Thunder training camp

    Sep 21, 2010, 7:59 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City had more than just Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook in Turkey for the World Championships, there was also Nenad Krstic from Serbia. It was Serbia that sent Spain packing, lost in dramatic fashion to Turkey in the semi-finals and finished fourth after losing the bronze medal game to Lithuania. In that final game,…

  3. Jannero Pargo could be Chris Paul's backup

    Sep 21, 2010, 7:41 PM EDT

    New Orleans still needs a backup point guard, having traded away Darren Collison this summer. The pickings are a bit slim this time of year. Jannero Pargo — one of CP3’s good friends — is still out there and could land a spot, according to Jason Reid of the Times-Picayune. “Pargo is a guy that…

  4. Adam Morrison invited to Wizards camp

    Sep 21, 2010, 5:08 PM EDT

    Adam Morrison will be in the Wizards training camp on a make-good contract, trying to earn his way back onto an NBA roster, that according to Michael Lee of the Washington Post. Morrison was last seen in street clothes, as part of the last two Los Angeles Lakers title teams. While players raved about his…

  5. Rudy Fernandez is excited to play in Portland now. Of course he is.

    Sep 21, 2010, 4:20 PM EDT

    After an entire summer of trying anything and everything to force his way out of Portland — with his agent stepping far enough over the line as to be fined by the league — Rudy Fernandez is changing his tone as camp approaches. Here are his comments in an interview with Spanish media outlet Marca,…

  6. Owners, players to sit down, talk CBA again on Wednesday

    Sep 21, 2010, 3:26 PM EDT

    At least the two sides are meeting. The owners and representatives of the Players Association are going to sit down again on Wednesday at talk about the collective bargaining agreement, according to Art Garcia at NBA.com. This will be the third such meeting and the second this summer. The current CBA will expire at the…

  7. Court revives insider trading case against Mark Cuban

    Sep 21, 2010, 2:59 PM EDT

    Back in 2009, the insider trading case against Mavericks owner Mark Cuban was thrown out of court. Now it is back. A federal appeals court revived the case today, sending it back to a lower court for further discovery and then to proceed from there. That could include a trial. Here is the AP’s breakdown…

  8. LeBron's Q-Rating, image didn't really take a hit among blacks

    Sep 21, 2010, 2:29 PM EDT

    You know how America hates LeBron James now after “The Decision?” That’s not exactly true. We should say white America hates LeBron, because the numbers say black Americans do not. In a fascinating post at ESPN, Vincent Thomas has the numbers: According to The Q Scores Co., for non-blacks, LeBron’s positive Q rating went from…

  9. Corey Maggette may miss part of training camp, should be ready for season

    Sep 21, 2010, 1:52 PM EDT

    Corey Maggette had an ankle operation back on July 1. It’s one of those “clean out the bone chips and scar tissue” scoping jobs that many NBA veterans have done in the summer. However, recovery from this may keep Maggette out of the start of Bucks camp, coach Scott Skiles told the Journal Sentinel. “He’s…

  10. Who is the last Knick to camp? Eddy Curry. Shocking, we know.

    Sep 21, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    It’s a new season, a new era of optimism for Knicks fans (unless that optimism included getting Carmelo Anthony, but work with us here). Things are different, everyone is already at the Knicks training facility putting in work. Well, everyone but Eddy Curry, according Alan Hahn at Newsday. I heard yesterday that Curry was still…

  11. NBA Season Preview: The Indiana Pacers

    Sep 21, 2010, 12:24 PM EDT

    Last season: The Pacers went 32-50, which puts them a step above the downright tragedy of the Nets, Timberwolves, and even the Wizards, but still among some pretty miserable company. Head Coach: Jim O’Brien will again have the Pacers running (they were the second fastest team in the NBA last season), running, running. This time,…

  12. ARCO name coming off Sacramento Arena after season

    Sep 21, 2010, 12:08 PM EDT

    For the past quarter century — through Reggie Theus, Chris Webber, Vlade Divac and now Tyreke Evans — the Sacramento Kings have played at ARCO Arena. By the fall of 2011, that will be no more. The 25-year deal between ARCO — owned by BP — and the arena runs out in February and the…

  13. Winderman: Jared Jeffries salary dump reason Knicks are out of Anthony sweepstakes

    Sep 21, 2010, 11:31 AM EDT

    It is one thing to mortgage your future after the fact. The Heat did that with the Cavaliers and Raptors in the sign-and-trades utilized to increase the payouts to LeBron James and Chris Bosh. For most of the next decade, draft night will remain rumor in South Florida. It is, however, another thing to mortgage…

  14. One team Carmelo Anthony won't be traded to: The Knicks

    Sep 21, 2010, 11:10 AM EDT

    The fast moving efforts to trade Carmelo Anthony — which now looks like it could happen even before training camps open — means the Knicks need to move on to Plan C. Or maybe it’s Plan Y at this point. They have had a lot of dashed plans. Once the Knicks lost out on the…

  15. Utah Jazz have "issue" with Kyrylo Fesenko

    Sep 21, 2010, 10:46 AM EDT

    The Utah Jazz are a little tired of waiting. They have had the $1.1 million qualifying offer for Kyrylo Fesenko on the table for more than two months. Fesenko hasn’t signed it, trying to get another team — Houston and Cleveland have had serious talks — to make a better, longer-term offer. Because the Jazz…

  16. Erick Dampier down to Rockets, Heat, Hawks, Nuggets

    Sep 21, 2010, 9:58 AM EDT

    Either the Rockets or the Heat are about to get a nice boost to their title hopes. That or the Hawks or Nuggets will get a nice boost to their front lines. Erick Dampier worked out for the Houston Rockets Monday and met with coach Rick Adelman, according to the Houston Chronicle. Dampier will do…

  17. Quote of the day, Ron Artest wants LA to trade the Clippers for the NFL's Chargers

    Sep 21, 2010, 9:32 AM EDT

    “Maybe we can swap, the Chargers for the Clippers. No disrespect to the Clippers. You can have them back. I don’t mean that in a disrespectful way. I really like the Clippers, but I feel they deserve their own fan base because in L.A. they’re overshadowed. The Clippers deserve a shot at having their own…

  18. Earl Watson agrees to a deal with the Utah Jazz

    Sep 21, 2010, 8:45 AM EDT

    Earl Watson has game made for the background. He’s not a bad player. Sub-average, really, but not bad. He’s spent most of his career as a reserve, and has typically managed to hold down the fort while his team’s regular point man sips on Gatorade. When Watson is asked to do more than tread water…

  19. Rondo is better than Derrick Rose, David Lee (in NBA 2K11 anyway)

    Sep 21, 2010, 8:15 AM EDT

    Anybody want some chips, onion rings? The NBA 2K11 commercials are pretty clever.

  20. Cavaliers Mo Williams almost walked away after LeBron's decision

    Sep 20, 2010, 10:26 PM EDT

    How depressed was Mo Williams after LeBron James decided he was taking his talents to South Beach? After watching his coach and GM leave and realize the Cavaliers were starting over. How about walking away from $26 million depressed. In a refreshingly honest interview by Marc Spears of Yahoo, Mo Williams said he almost walked…
