  1. Udonis Haslem has some choices to make

    Jul 12, 2010, 3:23 PM EDT

    UPDATE 3:23 pm: Just to add to the options for Haslem, the Denver Nuggets are also making a hard push for him. Denver also is offering the full mid-level exception, just like Dallas. And just like Dallas, they are looking for front line guys to match up against the Lakers. 9: 34 am: How badly…

  2. Jesse Jackson defends his statements about Dan Gilbert

    Jul 12, 2010, 3:04 PM EDT

      Hear the words from the man himself. And I will add this: He’s right about the fines, the accountability in the NBA. Mark Cuban and Steve Kerr got fined for tampering for innocent comments. Gilbert likely will not get fined for this. But what Gilbert did was a far bigger black eye for the…

  3. Quenton Richardson headed to the Orlando Magic

    Jul 12, 2010, 2:55 PM EDT

    The Matt Barnes era in Orlando is over. Long live Quenton Richardson. Richardson has reached a deal with the Orlando Magic, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo. Richardson fits what Orlando likes to do — he shot 40 percent from three last year. And Orlando likes to shoot the three. He also is a pretty…

  4. JaVale McGee with a little Summer League showtime

    Jul 12, 2010, 2:31 PM EDT

    Summer League play — and the “defense” often played there” means guys get open, guys get breakaways in a way you don’t see in the regular season game. Washington’s JaVale McGee took full advantage of that. (He also had some nice connections with John Wall for dunks as well.) 

  5. Dan Gilbert sounds more reasonable now, but he can't get the high ground back

    Jul 12, 2010, 2:07 PM EDT

    Dan Gilbert flew off the handle Thursday night and said some things he’d like to take back. We’ve all been there. We also know you can’t take them back. You live with it. Gilbert got personal in calling out LeBron James, gave up the high moral ground and lost any chance to be the sympathetic…

  6. Winderman: Tampering? That's a bigger fantasy than the one LeBron/Wade/Bosh had

    Jul 12, 2010, 1:07 PM EDT

    First there are negotiations. Then there are signings. And then there are recriminations. On that last count, we thought it wouldn’t get any more ludicrous than Dan Gilbert’s opening statement, and it certainly was a doozy. But this tampering talk might just top it. Look, players talk, players plan, players dream. You want to keep…

  7. Super-agent Ari Emanuel gave us LeBron James decision show, and he wants to see it again

    Jul 12, 2010, 12:11 PM EDT

    Backlash? Who cares? LeBron James’ “The Decision” got killer ratings and is a blueprint for the future if you ask Ari Emanuel. And if you don’t know who he is you don’t read the Hollywood trades — he is a super agent. William Morris Endeavor Entertainment. Watch Entourage? The Ari Gold character is partially based…

  8. Golden State down to two bidders for franchise, ownership change can't happen soon enough

    Jul 12, 2010, 11:15 AM EDT

    Anthony Morrow is being allowed to walk to New Jersey. Anthony Randolph will not be back next year, shipped out as part of a deal for the much more expensive David Lee (who had said he was excited by playing with Morrow, sorry man). It’s hard to understand exactly what the grand plan is of…

  9. Deron Williams frustrated as Utah watches key players walk

    Jul 12, 2010, 10:16 AM EDT

    Carlos Boozer: Gone. Kyle Korver: Gone. Deron Williams: Still in Utah. And he is “frustrated.” In a deep Western Conference, the Jazz have gotten worse this summer, he told the Desert News (via Slam). Although he tried to put a positive spin on it. “It was tough to see Booz (Carlos Boozer) and Kyle (Korver)…

  10. Mark Cuban may want one, but Cavaliers, Raptors not seeking investigation of Heat

    Jul 12, 2010, 9:03 AM EDT

    Did the Miami Heat cheat? Looks like we’ll never know, officially. Mark Cuban isn’t sold that how Miami ended up with the Superfriends — LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh — didn’t involve some shady back-room deals that violate league policy. He wants the league to look into it. But it appears neither Cleveland…

  11. ProBasketballTalk's top 25 free agents tracker

    Jul 12, 2010, 8:30 AM EDT

    Free agency is almost over. LeBron is going to the Heat. Most of the top 25 are set, and the ones that aren’t will be soon. So here is a little wrap up, with a few loose ends out there. What follows is a list of the top 25 free agents on the market (by…

  12. Ben Wallace to stay in Detroit, agrees to two-year deal

    Jul 12, 2010, 12:17 AM EDT

    Ben Wallace should retire a Piston. It just seems right. Now he will. According to Associated Press Ben Wallace has agreed a two-year deal to stay with the Pistons. He will make $1.9 million each year. “This is the place I want to retire,” Wallace said in a telephone interview with the AP. Wallace had…

  13. John Wall shows his world of potential, shows he is still 19 in first Summer League game

    Jul 11, 2010, 11:34 PM EDT

    John Wall is lightning quick. You think you know that watching his televised games while at Kentucky, but until you see him in person you don’t realize just how quick. It’s impressive, bordering on insane. He flashed that speed in his first ever Summer League game. Plus he showed his great length, good defensive instincts,…

  14. Report: Suns close to acquiring Turkoglu, Childress in trades

    Jul 11, 2010, 11:00 PM EDT

    Well, this is certainly… something.  Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic reports that the Phoenix Suns are close to two separate deals to acquire two small forwards at opposite ends of their careers, both with sizable contracts.  First up, hailing from Turkey and loving pizza, Hedo Turkoglu and your $43 million in remaining contract, head…

  15. Jesse Jackson compares Dan Gilbert's LeBron rant to slavery. Just when you thought that story couldn't get crazier.

    Jul 11, 2010, 10:48 PM EDT

    Jesse Jackson went off the deep end today. I have no other way to describe this commentary on the Rainbow Push Website. “(Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert) speaks as an owner of LeBron and not the owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers. His feelings of betrayal personify a slave master mentality. He sees LeBron as a runaway…

  16. Team USA: The B-Team that actually wants to be there

    Jul 11, 2010, 10:14 PM EDT

    Yahoo! Sports reports that Jerry Colangelo has confirmed that not a single player from the 2008 Olympic team will join Team USA for the World Championships in Turkey this summer.  In the midst of a public outpouring of rage and disgust over the behavior of how and where various free agents decided to exercise their…

  17. Nets ink Jordan Farmar, look to avoid a single impact signing

    Jul 11, 2010, 9:22 PM EDT

    The New Jersey Nets are making an offer to Jordan Farmar, which means a bizarre compromise on the part of both participants.  The Los Angeles times reports that Farmar has received an offer from the Nets but has not accepted it, while Ric Bucher of ESPN says the deal is done for three years and…

  18. Grizzlies sign Tony Allen

    Jul 11, 2010, 5:13 PM EDT

    The Memphis Commercial Appeal reports that the Grizzlies have closed in on a deal with former Celtics back-up guard Tony Allen. Woj and Spears over at Yahoo! report the deal is for three-years, $10 million, a very reasonable price for a player that played a significant role for the Celtics during their Finals run.  It’s a smart…

  19. Michael Redd may be out until February '11

    Jul 11, 2010, 2:50 PM EDT

    So that’s why they were so aggressive in pursuit of Corey Maggette.  The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports that Michael Redd is not expected back in action before February 2011. Redd, age 30, has been largely replaced by both John Salmons and Maggette (along with Chris Douglas-Roberts) on the wing.  Redd tried to return from injury last…

  20. Heat have interest in Zydrunas Ilgauskas

    Jul 11, 2010, 2:48 PM EDT

    This should make Cavs happy. Did I say happy? I meant, “feel like they were kicked in the back of the head after getting hit in the groin with a tire iron.” Mike Wallace of the Miami Herald reports that Zydrunas Ilgauskas is “looking into the option” of joining LeBron James, a close personal friend,…
