    Jul 27, 2010, 8:49 AM EDT

    Bet you didn’t see this coming: the Minnesota Timberwolves could be short point guards to start the season.

    Jul 26, 2010, 8:03 PM EDT

  4. Here's a Monday afternoon trick shot montage

    Jul 26, 2010, 6:44 PM EDT

    Very, very impressive stuff here from some Lewis Center, Ohio youths. Not only is this an impressive collection of trick shots, it’s a fairly convincing argument for the value of Summer Vacation. I found the shot off the swing particularly impressive — I also wonder where they got that golf cart from. A tip of…

    Jul 26, 2010, 4:23 PM EDT

    UPDATE 6:11 PM: Brian Windhorst also reported that Wolves center Ryan Hollins could be involved in the deal. 5:23 PM: The Cleveland Cavaliers have been linked to all kinds of names in their attempt to repopulate their void left by LeBron James’ departure.

  7. Jamal Crawford looking to re-up with the Hawks

    Jul 26, 2010, 3:50 PM EDT

    Now that Jamal Crawford has seen Joe Johnson swimming in an Olympic-sized swimming pool full of money courtesy of the Atlanta Hawks, he wouldn’t mind getting some for himself. According to Chris Broussard of ESPN.com, Crawford is looking to secure a contract extension from the Hawks under the current CBA in order to avoid becoming…

  8. Mikhail Torrance to play for Maccabi Tel Aviv

    Jul 26, 2010, 3:47 PM EDT

    Despite lacking notable second round depth, this year’s draft left a number of intriguing undrafted players to be picked up in free agency. However, most of them appear to be heading overseas, as whatever flaws prevented them from being drafted still persist in the minds of NBA decision-makers. Among them is Mikhail Torrance, a tremendously…

  9. Good vibrations (or a smokescreen) out of Chris Paul's meeting with the Hornets

    Jul 26, 2010, 1:04 PM EDT

    Chris Paul had a meeting today with representatives from just about every important aspect of the Hornets’ operations, with the intent to iron out exactly why Paul wants to be traded and what he wants the Hornets to do about it. The meeting could easily be seen as a formality while Paul takes strides towards…

  10. Nets continue to move around desks in the front office, promote Bobby Marks to Assistant GM

    Jul 26, 2010, 12:51 PM EDT

    Bobby Marks, who has been the New Jersey Nets’ Vice President of Basketball Operations for the last four years, has been made the new Assistant GM under the recently-hired Billy King.

  11. Summer Lovin', featuring Kobe Bryant and Matt Barnes

    Jul 26, 2010, 12:44 PM EDT

    Matt Barnes has an incredible tendency to get on his opponents’ nerves, and it’s easy to understand why. Barnes never stops talking. He’s no stranger to the hard foul or the occasional cheap shot. He holds, he pushes, he yaps, and he plays hard. That’s not the kind of thing that makes for an ideal…

  12. Dirk Nowitzki's vote of confidence in Mark Cuban to land Chris Paul

    Jul 26, 2010, 11:57 AM EDT

    Orlando may be the most natural landing spot for Chris Paul should he be traded, and New York the most glamorous. Yet Dallas was also included on Paul’s list of preferred destinations, and while the Mavs don’t have a ton of young, proven talent to sweeten the pot, a trade with Dallas could make all…

  13. LeBron's rooting interest in the Chris Paul ordeal. Also, Freemasonry.

    Jul 26, 2010, 11:45 AM EDT

    If we’ve learned anything from free agency this summer, it’s that NBA superstars are a part of some secret, underground, Freemason-esque society. LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh have been conspiring to team up for the last 15 years, and only now, with all of the planets in perfect alignment in their orbits and…

  14. Kendrick Perkins wants to play for Team USA, not New Zealand

    Jul 26, 2010, 11:18 AM EDT

    Kendrick Perkins could likely play for New Zealand’s national team, if he were interested. Not this summer, as Perk is likely to be out of action until December of January with a torn ACL. But supposing the ‘Tall Blacks’ could persuade Perk to play, they could add a physical defensive presence inside that would help…

  15. Chris Paul may want to go to the Magic, but a trade to Orlando looks fairly improbable

    Jul 26, 2010, 10:38 AM EDT

    It’s easy to understand why Chris Paul would want to play for the Orlando Magic. Stan Van Gundy may be more demanding than most coaches, but he produces winning teams that dominate defensively. There’s also a guy there named Dwight Howard, and most online forum commenters seem to think he’s pretty good. The Magic could…

  16. Stephon Marbury: Heck yea I'd play in Miami

    Jul 26, 2010, 9:29 AM EDT

    So maybe Stephon Marbury isn’t as far out on the crazy bell curve as we thought last week. Oh, he’s still a few standard deviations away from the norm, but he’s not lost all grip with reality. He says that he did not turn down a chance to play with the Heat and very much…

  17. Whatever Chris Paul asks for today, don't bet on the Hornets trading him soon

    Jul 26, 2010, 9:02 AM EDT

    We know what new General Manager Dell Demps and new coach Monty Williams are going to say to Chris Paul today when the two sides sit down for their first face-to-face meeting: Give us a chance. Both have just been hired in recent weeks, both will say they have not had time yet to build…

  18. Not sure who he's been kissing, but Brook Lopez struggling with mono

    Jul 26, 2010, 8:39 AM EDT

    Brook Lopez is the best center on the Team USA roster by roughly 500 miles. And coach Mike Krzyzewski would walk 500 miles and then would walk 500 more just to be the man who had a real low post presence on his team. But in the white vs. blue Team USA scrimmage Saturday Lopez…

  19. LeBron James is not exactly lying low

    Jul 25, 2010, 6:05 PM EDT

    Apparently LRMR’s idea of damage control is “If you’ve got it, flaunt it.” Examiner.com brings us the story of LeBron’s weekend in Vegas. James pulled out of Team USA’s trials in Turkey due to the stress of his business ventures and adjustment to wherever it was he was going to wind up in free agency…

  20. Tracy McGrady nearing deal with Bulls

    Jul 25, 2010, 4:16 PM EDT

    In news that would be stunningly relevant in 2003, Marc Stein of ESPN reports that the Bulls are nearing an agreement with former Raptor/Magic/Rocket/Knick and former All-Star Tracy McGrady. There’s no word on the terms of the deal, but if it’s for a dollar over league veteran minimum, someone in Chicago’s offices screwed up. McGrady…
