  1. Joakim Noah, Chicago Bulls talking contract extension

    Aug 9, 2010, 9:12 AM EDT

    He’s one of the guys (along with Derrick Rose and Luol Deng) that the Bulls kept selling to free agents as an important part of their future, part of their core. So the Bulls had better lock up Joakim Noah to a longer term deal. And, according to Noah, via ESPNChicago.com, those talks are already…

  2. NBA owners complaining about Isiah Thomas deal, but NBA may approve

    Aug 9, 2010, 8:53 AM EDT

    One of the NBA rules guiding its executives — nobody can have contact with a college underclassman. Another put in with the age-limit requirement is that nobody from an NBA front office can scout high school players. Isiah Thomas’ new deal has him both as a full-time college coach at Florida International University (where he…

  3. Report: Pistons not close to signing McGrady, still thinking it over

    Aug 9, 2010, 1:48 AM EDT

    It’s not you, it’s me. I just need to think about it some more. That’s essentially what the Pistons have told Tracy McGrady. No decision yet, according to David Aldridge at NBA.com. Sources told him Detroit is thinking over offering a contract. The Pistons “are not about to do anything” imminently with McGrady, the source…

  4. Suns pick Dwayne Collins signs in Italy

    Aug 8, 2010, 8:53 PM EDT

    Mr. Irrelevant is going to Italy. Dwyane Collins was the last player selected in the NBA draft. No. 60. The Mr. Irrelevant position, which is exactly what Collins had tattooed onto his hand as a reminder. He’ll be getting that reminder in Italy next year, as he has signed to play Cimberio Varese for next…

  5. LeBron, Wade, 'Melo play with president Obama for wounded troops

    Aug 8, 2010, 7:48 PM EDT

    Turns out there is one other person who can put together a superteam besides Pat Riley. President Barack Obama summoned some of the biggest stars in the NBA to play a special game for wounded troops, according to the Associated press.

  6. Video: LeBron speaks in Akron, expressing his love for Cleveland

    Aug 8, 2010, 6:18 PM EDT

      Here’s the video, LeBron James speaking in Akron at his annual bike-a-thon for charity. He says all the right things. Clevelanders would like to remind you that actions speak louder than words.

  7. Joel Przybilla aims to be back for opening night

    Aug 8, 2010, 3:34 PM EDT

    Joel Przybilla was part of the horrific wave of injuries the Blazers faced last year. After he broke his patella, the same injury that felled Greg Oden, he slipped in the shower and re-injured it. Most thought he would be out until at least the beginning of the new year. But in an interview with…

  8. Shaq wants Sheed to come back to Boston and form a real frontcourt logjam

    Aug 8, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    Rasheed Wallace is on the fence about retirement — last year was physically hard for him, but the chance to come back with a team to make one more run at a title has to be a big temptation. Shaquille O’Neal — the newest member of the Celtics frontcourt, told Comcast Sports New England he…

  9. Jeff Van Gundy says the Heat will break Bulls' record of 72 wins

    Aug 8, 2010, 12:25 PM EDT

    Oh, good. This should go over well. Jeff Van Gundy, in an interview with the Miami Herald, thinks the Heat will break the ’96 Bulls’ record of 72 wins, and will challenge the ’72 Lakers’ record for consecutive wins of 33. No, seriously. He went out and said what a lot of people are thinking:…

  10. There's a logjam in Atlanta and something's got to give

    Aug 8, 2010, 10:37 AM EDT

    Al Horford is often talked about as undersized at center. He’s 6-10, but built like a power-forward, with long arms, great athleticism, and not so wide of a base like so many 5′s. The Hawks have made a ton of noise about adding a legit center this offseason, or at least aiming for some depth…

  11. Report: Donnie Walsh nearly walked out after Thomas hiring

    Aug 8, 2010, 8:36 AM EDT

    Isiah Thomas is a polarizing figure in sports management. Some people think he’s the worst manager in the history of the NBA, while others think he’s the worst manager in the history of all sports, ever, in the history of the universe. And from a report this morning, Donnie Walsh is similarly wrapped up in…

  12. Tracy McGrady may have signed with the Pistons…or…not

    Aug 7, 2010, 9:36 PM EDT

    Allright, so we talked earlier about how Tracy McGrady didn’t have any options and was out in the cold. No luck. No go. Iverson’d. Okay, so maybe not. Draft Express, at the NC Pro-Am today, is reporting via Twitter that McGrady has signed with the Pistons for a one-year deal. Hurray! Tracy’s journey is finally…

  13. In case you were curious, here's next year's No. 1 overall pick

    Aug 7, 2010, 4:31 PM EDT

    Most highly scouted. Most highly recruited. Most highly ranked. Most hyped. Harrison Barnes is widely considered next year’s No.1 overall pick in the NBA draft. The 6-8, 210 lb. freshman out of UNC announced his college of choice via Skype at a press conference last year and continues to be the most watched name among…

  14. The one thing Isiah Thomas was good at, he wasn't really good at

    Aug 7, 2010, 2:00 PM EDT

    With Isiah Thomas back in the Knickerbocker fold, his legacy is being re-examined. And as is natural, there’s a counter-movement to the sweeping flood of “What in God’s name are the Knicks thinking?” cries. There are those saying that Isiah’s terrible run with the Knicks is overstated by the media and exaggerated when discussed in…

  15. Tracy McGrady is still standing out in the cold

    Aug 7, 2010, 1:30 PM EDT

    Tracy McGrady has had two workouts for teams. There was the Clippers, but that was almost considered a favor for his agent and an effort to put pressure on Chicago to act. The Clippers roster is was fairly set and McGrady was not going to be part of it unless he blew them away. He…

  16. Ben Gordon out for Worlds

    Aug 7, 2010, 12:13 PM EDT

    Ben Gordon was determined to play for Great Britain in this summer’s Eurobasket qualifier. He had committed, even after surgery. It’s something Gordon had wanted to do for years, but never had the real chance to because of mitigating circumstances. This year, however, he was on track. Yeah, not so much. The Detroit Free Press…

  17. Celtic defector Tom Thibodeau reflects on the Shaq signing

    Aug 7, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    Tom Thibodeau will always have a special place in the Celtic lore. While he may not have been the physical manifestation of the Boston’s remarkable Championship-level defense or knocked down clutch shots, he was as much a part of the C’s 2007 title formula as anyone. As the architect of the team D that reintroduced…

  18. LeBron not only shows up for Akron event, but doesn't get booed into oblivion

    Aug 7, 2010, 9:41 AM EDT

    In the aftermath of “The Decision,” a few Cleveland fans emerged from the rubble. Stumbling, mumbling to themselves, they asked a question, “Wait, LeBron’s got charity events in Akron in a few weeks. Is he even going to be able to show his face there?” The question, apparently, is a resounding yes. LeBron’s King for…

  19. Dennis Johnson was very, very good

    Aug 6, 2010, 10:30 PM EDT

    There are plenty of young NBA fans out there — probably even young Celtics fans — who are saying “Dennis Johnson who?” He is maybe the best baller ever to come out of the prettiest college campus in America, Pepperdine. He was the point guard for much of the 1980s Celtics run, the teams known…

  20. Reinsdorf: Six Bulls titles would not have happened without Pippen

    Aug 6, 2010, 9:02 PM EDT

    Scottie Pippen was a fantastic player. Scottie Pippen deserves to be in the Hall of Fame, as will formally happen next week. Pippen deserves the accolades that will come his way. But it’s hard to read what Bulls owner Jerry Riesndorf said about Pippen to Bulls.com without feeling there is another slight toward Michael Jordan…
