  1. LeBron James isn't talking to anyone, but we're all still guessing

    Jul 6, 2010, 9:03 AM EDT

    We don’t know. Nobody in the media knows. That won’t stop us from speculating. We’ll use a shred of information to concoct entire theories. We’ll guess. (Complain about that if you want, but those guesses get a lot of viewers — you like it so we keep doing it). But we don’t know what LeBron…

  2. Did Derrick Rose prefer Joe Johnson to LeBron James?

    Jul 6, 2010, 8:38 AM EDT

    Would you rather have Joe Johnson or LeBron James on your team? Exactly. It’s not even close. Even if you think there are flaws with LeBron’s game, there are far fewer than Johnson. LeBron is a true first option. Joe Johnson is a true second option on a title team. LeBron is a true max…

  3. Summer League Notes from Day 1: Where Jrue Holiday and Evan Turner are sweet together

    Jul 6, 2010, 1:47 AM EDT

    A lot of things happen during Summer League, lots of games in one day. Here are some notes on the things that didn’t make their own post from the first day in Orlando. * Jrue Holiday may have been the best single player to take the floor the first day of games in Orlando, which…

  4. Will any 2008 Olympians be on the 2010 World Championships team?

    Jul 6, 2010, 12:35 AM EDT

    According to NBA FanHouse’s Chris Tomasson, there is a distinct possibility that none of the members of the 2008 USA Olympic Basketball will represent the United States in the FIBA World Championships this summer: So [the fact that Chris Paul and Deron Williams may miss the games due to injury] means LeBron James, Dwyane Wade,…

    Jul 5, 2010, 11:45 PM EDT

    UPDATE 11:45 pm: Joe Dumars said, “What you talkin’ bout, Willis?” Not that there’s a Willis involved in this story, but you get the idea. He told the Detroit News he has had not interviewed for the Nets job and has no interest in leaving Detroit. He said the media report was full of it.…

  6. Amar'e Stoudemire: Icon of the New York reclamation

    Jul 5, 2010, 10:30 PM EDT

    Lost in the debates on if the Knicks should have traded for Tracy McGrady (and his cap space) at the cost of their draft picks in 2011 (swapped) and 2012 to the Rockets, and whether the Knicks will manage to acquire one of the true elites of the free agent class (two names, LeBron James,…

  7. Iverson Tweets he wants back in the NBA

    Jul 5, 2010, 9:44 PM EDT

    Allen Iverson is ready for his big comeback. I want to return to the NBA this season, and help any team that wants me, in any capacity that they feel that I can help. I’m disappointed, and I owe my fans more than what they have seen of me the last couple seasons. However, now…

  8. Report: Knicks, Amare Stoudemire have agreed to terms. Finally.

    Jul 5, 2010, 8:32 PM EDT

  9. Summer League guy to watch: Lance Stephenson

    Jul 5, 2010, 7:57 PM EDT

    Lance Stephenson tried to tell us he was “born ready,” the nickname he picked up at the legendary Rucker Park playground games in New York. Pacers coach Jim O’Brien tried to tell us he was ready. But until we saw it for ourselves, we weren’t convinced. We’re stubborn like that. We’re convinced. Lance Stephenson is…

  10. Carmelo Anthony serious about extending deal in Denver, but wants some help first

    Jul 5, 2010, 4:51 PM EDT

    You know he is going to New York — Amare said so. Heck, Carmelo Anthony is going somewhere, right? That’s why he hasn’t signed that three-year, $65 million extension staring him in the face, right? Trade scenarios for Melo are everybody’s new favorite past time. He’s going to the Knicks, Nets, Heat, Magic, Bulls, and…

  11. Ray Allen is a patient man

    Jul 5, 2010, 4:23 PM EDT

    Paul Pierce is back. Doc Rivers is back. Kevin Garnett never left. Ray Allen… is taking his sweet time. As he should. Ken Berger explains over at CBSSports.com. Ray Allen will give the Celtics “every chance of re-signing him,” but has been in contact with the top-tier free agents and wants to wait until they…

  12. Joakim Noah is getting richer this week

    Jul 5, 2010, 4:01 PM EDT

    Joakim Noah is not a free agent this summer. Guy is in the middle of his rookie deal, the Bulls could extend him right now, but they are focusing on bigger fish. Which is just fine with Noah, he keeps getting richer just sitting there doing nothing. That’s because the Bulls are using him to…

  13. Dwyane Wade, Micky Arison hang out together in Miami

    Jul 5, 2010, 3:26 PM EDT

    Here’s what we know: Dwyane Wade and Heat owner Micky Arison were spotted together talking at American Airlines Arena on Monday afternoon. That we got from our own Ira Winderman, writing for the Sun Sentinel. We also know the Heat never really made a big, formal presentation to Wade as was done by Chicago and…

  14. Trail Blazers talking to Randy Pfund about general manager vacancy

    Jul 5, 2010, 2:31 PM EDT

    The man who was the general manager when the Miami Heat won the NBA title — meaning the man who drafted Dwyane Wade — is the guy Portland is targeting to be their next GM. Randy Pfund is next up on the clock, according to multiple reports. The Blazers had first interviewed and talked to…

  15. Celtics sign Semih Erden to bolster front line

    Jul 5, 2010, 1:59 PM EDT

    There are a lot of Celtics fans saying “Semih Erden who?” But Boston made a good move by inking the Turkish center, their 2008 second round pick, to a contract for next year, as Marc Spears of Yahoo has confirmed. He’s a solid 7-footer who can provide some depth with Kendrick Perkins out for the…

  16. Count the Warriors among those looking to nab David Lee

    Jul 5, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

    The jury’s still out on exactly what kind of salary David Lee can command this off-season. Yet with Rudy Gay and Joe Johnson topping out on their earning potential, it wouldn’t be too much of a stretch to see some team give Lee a max deal. Hooray for the Summer of 2010, where basketball paupers…

  17. Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh may be making documentary of free agency

    Jul 5, 2010, 12:21 PM EDT

    Just what we all have hoped for — the chance to relive this summer’s free agency over and over and over… Camera crews have been following Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh through the free agency process. Filming them going to meetings, flying around the country and having dinner with each other in Chicago. Of course,…

  18. Free agent bargain bin: Udonis Haslem

    Jul 5, 2010, 11:33 AM EDT

    There remains a possibility — however slim — that the Miami Heat could suit up Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, and Chris Bosh next season. However, in order to do so, Miami would likely have to renounce Udonis Haslem’s Bird rights, which would prevent the team from going over the cap in order to re-sign Miami’s…

    Jul 5, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

      You had probably gone through your entire morning without hearing some NBA executive spew cliches. We’re hear to fix that. This is Cavaliers GM Chris Grant after meeting with LeBron James a couple days ago. Pretty much all of the post-meeting press conferences sounded like this.
