  1. Offseason Power Rankings

    Jul 29, 2010, 3:19 PM EDT

    Well, that was fun, wasn’t it? Mix together equal parts of ego and cap space to throw around, and you get one wild off-season. Everybody was making moves. There were decisions and The Decision. And at the end of it all, the Lakers are on top. Since most of the moves have shaken out, we’ve…

  2. Stephon Marbury agrees to three more years with Shanxi Zhongyu

    Jul 29, 2010, 1:46 PM EDT

    Maybe Stephon Marbury was offered a chance to play with the Miami Heat or maybe he wasn’t, but it’s all moot now. According to the Associated Press, Marbury has agreed to a three-year deal with his current Chinese Basketball Association team, Shanxi Zhongyu. Two pretty interesting tidbits, though. According to Shanxi’s website, Marbury may only…

  3. Your daily Chris Paul update: There is no update

    Jul 29, 2010, 1:36 PM EDT

    Chris Paul has started to play it smart. The Times-Picayune is reporting that Monday’s meeting between Paul and new GM Dell Demps and new coach Monty Williams bought the franchise some time. After hearing Demps’ plan for retooling the roster, Paul, a three-time All-Star, is on board with the team’s direction and will not seek…

  4. Magic considering re-signing Jason Williams

    Jul 29, 2010, 1:30 PM EDT

    According to the Orlando Sentinel, Magic general manager Otis Smith is considering re-signing free agent point guard Jason Williams. Williams was an extremely pleasant surprise for the Magic last season; after missing the 08-09 season altogether, Williams came out of “retirement” to average 6 points and 3.6 assists per game while shooting a career-high 44%…

  5. The wayward Jeremy Tyler is changing continents

    Jul 29, 2010, 1:07 PM EDT

    Jeremy Tyler took the Brandon Jennings formula one step too far when he decided to leave high school after his junior season to play professionally in Israel. It would have taken a remarkably mature high school junior to succeed under the circumstances Tyler chose to embrace, but he apparently had enough faith in himself to…

  6. Eddie House signs with Miami Heat – damn, they just got even better

    Jul 29, 2010, 12:32 PM EDT

    The Miami Heat need shooters. LeBron James and Dwyane Wade are two of the very best at getting to the rim, Chris Bosh plays inside. Somebody has to space the floor besides Mike Miller. That somebody is Eddie House. House signed a two-year, $2.8 million deal with the Heat, with the second year being a…

  7. Wizards first rounder Kevin Seraphin to buy out of current contract, play in Washington this season

    Jul 29, 2010, 11:51 AM EDT

    Kevin Seraphin making the jump to the NBA this season was touch-and-go there for awhile, but the No. 17 pick is now set to make his debut with the Wizards this fall. Seraphin has reached a buyout agreement with his current club, Cholet, and will play in the NBA this season, according to Michael Lee…

  8. Derrick Favors is just like Tim Duncan, except hardly and not at all

    Jul 29, 2010, 11:43 AM EDT

    In his last head coaching job, Avery Johnson whittled down the patience and nerves of his players over about three seasons. There’s apparently only so much of Avery — or, in fairness, of that Avery — that a team can take, and by the time he was let go by the Dallas Mavericks at the…

  9. Anthony Tolliver choosing between rock or hard place, er, Warriors or Wolves

    Jul 29, 2010, 11:41 AM EDT

    Anthony Tolliver says he wants to choose by this weekend which struggling franchise he is going to play for next year. We’ll, that’s not how he put it to the News-Leader, but when you are choosing between Golden State and Minnesota it is the reality. “I haven’t made a decision yet,” Tolliver said, “but we’re…

  10. Arrest warrant issued for Eddy Curry. Again.

    Jul 29, 2010, 10:38 AM EDT

    This just makes me sad. This week a judge issued in Chicago issued an arrest warrant for Eddy Curry. Second time that has happened in a month. The Chicago Sun-Times has all the details (via Knickstweets): Cook County Circuit Judge Alexander White ordered Curry’s arrest on Monday, after learning Curry failed to sign an agreement to pay…

  11. Portland looking for a first-round pick to trade Fernandez. So the Knicks are out.

    Jul 29, 2010, 9:48 AM EDT

    Rudy Fernandez isn’t talking about his future, but everyone else is. Fernandez is in Las Palmas training with the Spanish national team for the upcoming FIBA World Championships (nice location, by the way). He said on his personal blog that is his focus right now. There is gossip about my future and everyone asks me…

  12. Grizzlies, Zach Randolph may be talking extension

    Jul 29, 2010, 9:25 AM EDT

    Memphis likes its core of Marc Gasol, O.J. Mayo Rudy Gay, and Zach Randolph. Probably a little more than they should. And they want to keep them together. They gave a max deal to Rudy Gay this summer and now Zach Randolph told IndySportsNation.com he and his agent are trying to work out an extension…

  13. Pacers trying to trade Mike Dunleavy, T.J. Ford with little success

    Jul 29, 2010, 8:52 AM EDT

    The Pacers don’t really make trades. It’s been two years since their last one, it’s just not part of their corporate culture. But they are trying now. The Pacers are trying to move Mike Dunleavy and T.J. Ford, according to the Indianapolis Star. And finding this is harder than they thought. Just like they have…

  14. How to nearly get you're a$@ kicked in Cleveland: Wear a LeBron Heat jersey

    Jul 29, 2010, 12:33 AM EDT

    Let’s be clear about this: You have to be a complete and total a——- to wear a LeBron James Miami Heat jersey in Cleveland. You get what’s coming. To complain about anything short of physical violence is like those people that buy a house under the flight path near an airport then complain about all…

  15. Kenny Hasbrouck may round out the Heat roster. No, seriously.

    Jul 28, 2010, 11:50 PM EDT

    Right about now is the time of the summer when guys get “make good” contracts. Which are non-guaranteed contracts. Meaning they are invited to training camp but can be cut. Which really means camp fodder — you need more than15 guys in training camp, so you invite guys you plan to cut. Kenny Hasbrouck —…

  16. Andrew Bynum has "successful" knee surgery

    Jul 28, 2010, 9:40 PM EDT

    Andrew Bynum finally has had surgery on the knee he dragged through the NBA playoffs last season. The surgery took place on Wednesday and the team termed it the standard “successful.” As Hoopsworld’s Eric Pincus notes, any surgery you wake up from is successful, so Bynum passed that test. Bynum had a torn meniscus, suffered…

  17. Rockets send David Andersen to Toronto

    Jul 28, 2010, 8:32 PM EDT

    With Yao Ming back and Brad Miller now in the mix, Houston needed to thin out their front line. So they basically paid Toronto to take him off their hands. Which, ironically, is sort of how they ended up with him in the first place. Toronto picks up the Australian center plus some cash for…

  18. Josh Howard returns to Washington Wizards with one-year deal

    Jul 28, 2010, 6:29 PM EDT

    So a John Wall, Gilbert Arenas, Kirk Hinrich and Josh Howard back court rotation? Not shabby, not shabby at all. The last of that came together Wednesday when Howard agreed to a one-year deal that, with bonuses, could be worth near $4 million, Howard’s consultant told Marc Spears of Yahoo. Howard came over to Washington…

  19. Report: Lorenzen Wright found dead near Memphis

    Jul 28, 2010, 5:20 PM EDT

Sources confirmed with the Memphis Commercial Appeal that a body found southeast of Memphis is that of Wright. The paper has the details.

  20. George Karl plans to coach when the season starts, but no guarantees

    Jul 28, 2010, 4:58 PM EDT

    George Karl is doing well. That is really all that matters. The good news is he is feeling well enough to come back and coach next season, he told Dan Patrick on his widely syndicated radio show. But there are now guarantees. “I’ve committed but it’s not a guarantee. The doctor’s up until probably October…
