  1. Report: Brian Shaw to be head coach of Cleveland Cavaliers

    Jun 29, 2010, 12:12 PM EDT

    In an interesting move that could be brilliant or backfire horribly, the Cleveland Cavaliers are hiring Lakers assistant Brian Shaw as their head coach. The reports are conflicting. Shaw is the man and a deal is being finalized according to a report from Sam Amick at FanHouse. However, the well-connected Brian Windhorst says that no…

  2. Shannon Brown wants to get in on the free agent fun

    Jun 29, 2010, 11:42 AM EDT

    It seems the Lakers could have a clean slate at point guard. With Derek Fisher an unrestricted free agent and Jordan Farmar a restricted one, L.A. was set to move forward into the off-season with Shannon Brown as the sole PG secured for next season. However, apparently Brown has decided that he will “probably” turn…

  3. It's official, Steve Kerr is back in the broadcast booth

    Jun 29, 2010, 11:40 AM EDT

    This was going to happen as sure as BP is going to try to buy its way out of paying its full share of damages by making large campaign contributions. Steve Kerr is back with TNT. He will be in the booth next year, taking the place of Doug Collins, who has gone to Philadelphia…

  4. The terrifying possibility of a LeBron-Wade-Bosh triumvirate in Miami inches closer to becoming a reality

    Jun 29, 2010, 11:12 AM EDT

    UPDATE 11:12 am: The Miami Herald and other sources are reporting that this summit did not happen in Miami. Turns out Wade spent last weekend in his hometown of Chicago. Although ESPN’s sources say they were all together in Miami. Whatever. See, there is this fancy new technology called the telephone where the three of…

  5. Randy Foye can be yours, the Wizards let him walk

    Jun 29, 2010, 10:59 AM EDT

    The Washington Wizards have their point guard of the future, and it is not Randy Foye. That is one reason the team declined to make a qualifying offer to Foye, making him an unrestricted free agent. You can have him. The Wizards are letting Mike Miller go as well this summer. So, the two guys…

  6. Are LeBron's friends and advisors really looking out for LeBron?

    Jun 29, 2010, 10:45 AM EDT

    The LeBron James situation has gotten so crazy that Bodog — the online gambling site that you tell your girlfriend you never visit — has taken down the odds down on where LeBron will land. It’s all too unpredictable for bookies right now. Unpredictable in part because what is going on close LeBron is unpredictable.…

  7. Not everyone is opting out: Stojakovic and Radmanovic staying in their bloated deals

    Jun 28, 2010, 11:23 PM EDT

    It only seems like everyone is opting out of their contracts right now. There are some guys out there riding the gravy train of bad general manager decisions, guys who are perfectly happy to keep their current bloated deals for next season. Meet Peja Stojakovic and Vladimir Radmanovic. Stojakovic is owed $15.3 million next season…

  8. Derek Fisher says maybe Phil Jackson isn't really feeling the love

    Jun 28, 2010, 10:09 PM EDT

    We’re all talking about LeBron James decision, and the fruits of that tree. We forget that Phil Jackson is making a decision this week. One that could have more of a bearing on the next NBA champion than where LeBron lands. Phil Jackson and everyone around him have said it’s about his health, not about…

  9. Bosh officially becomes free agent, Colangelo expects him to leave

    Jun 28, 2010, 8:07 PM EDT

    It’s far from surprising news, but Chris Bosh’s free agency has now become official. After missing the playoffs with the Toronto Raptors last season, forward Chris Bosh has decided to opt out of his contract, making him an unrestricted free agent on July 1st.  Raptors GM Brian Coangelo sat down for an interview with Toronto’s…

  10. Your latest LeBron rumor: He and Bosh to Miami with Wade. It doesn't work, yet…

    Jun 28, 2010, 7:46 PM EDT

    UPDATE 7:46 pm: ESPN salary cap guru Larry Coon blew this idea of Wade/Bosh/LeBron out of the water tonight. Here were his comments on twitter: If they re-sign Wade, waive Jones & renounce all other FAs, they will have $27,596,027 cap room. Bron/Bosh are $16,568,908 each. So one or both of them would have to…

  11. Wojnarowski: Sarver interviews Lindsay for Suns GM spot

    Jun 28, 2010, 7:24 PM EDT

    According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, Phoenix Suns owner Robert Sarver will interview Spurs assistant general manager Jeff Lindsey for Phoenix’s vacant GM spot. However, sources tell Wojnarowski that Sarver’s overly hands-on approach to ownership might have Lindsay hesitant to accept the job: Lindsey is the frontrunner for the position, sources said, but it’s…

  12. Rockets to send fan bus to free agency meetings

    Jun 28, 2010, 6:34 PM EDT

    Well, this is certainly creative. According to ESPN’s Marc Stein, the Houston Rockets are planning to send a “three-truck caravan carrying fans” to the team’s free agency meetings. Apparently the idea came from the fans themselves, and will involve three “tricked-out Toyota Tundras” heading to Hope, ARK, where they will wait for the team’s itinerary.…

  13. The Nets new managers are not the boogeymen. Just for the record.

    Jun 28, 2010, 6:25 PM EDT

    When Mikhail Prokhorov’s name first started coming up as a potential owner of the Nets, you heard whispers: Does the NBA want to touch a guy who has touched the Russian mob? Didn’t he get arrested for having prostitutes around? Turns out, he was clean — or as clean as any other NBA owner, which…

  14. Byron Scott waits on no man. Not even Phil Jackson or LeBron James. So he says.

    Jun 28, 2010, 4:28 PM EDT

    Don’t believe what you read. Because what you read would say Byron Scott is waiting to see what Phil Jackson does about the Lakers job (because Scott has said before he covets that job) and what LeBron James plans to do in Cleveland (because that would be the prudent thing to do). Once he has…

  15. Warriors to make Anthony Tolliver a free agent (Chris Hunter, too)

    Jun 28, 2010, 3:55 PM EDT

    With the drafting of Ekpe Udoh last week, there became a frontcourt logjam in Golden State. Which seems weird for a team that needed more on an interior presence last season, but welcome to the Warriors. Don Nelson does that to you. General Manager Larry Riley cleared that up a little with a series of…

  16. Suns to plead with Stoudemire one last time not to leave

    Jun 28, 2010, 3:14 PM EDT

    Tuesday afternoon, the Phoenix Suns will sit down one last time with Amare Stoudemire and try to convince him to stay. To stay with a team that made it to the Western Conference finals. A team with Steve Nash. A team where the style of basketball is fun. Stoudemire’s agent told FanHouse that Stoudemire will…

  17. Nets set Keyon Dooling free

    Jun 28, 2010, 2:49 PM EDT

    If you love Keyon Dooling, set him free. That’s sort of what happened. In a pretty straightforward business move the Nets declined the option bought out the $3.8 million contract of Dooling to create even more cap space. The Nets liked him as a player, but want as much flexibility as possible this summer, and…

  18. Ownership and coaches, LeBron James has a lot to consider

    Jun 28, 2010, 2:32 PM EDT

    At some point, it’s going to come down to just him. LeBron James sitting in a quiet room (or laying in his bed or wherever he does his best thinking) and weighing all the options. Then making a choice. But there are a lot of variables in front of him. One is ownership — he’s…

  19. Don Nelson chooses Maui over Las Vegas

    Jun 28, 2010, 1:58 PM EDT

    At one point last season, Warriors coach Don Nelson publicly said he might coach the team’s Summer League entry in Las Vegas. But when the league starts in two weeks, Nelson will be in Maui, according to the Oakland Tribune. Assistant coach Keith Smart will run the show. The main reason for no Nelson? No…

  20. Report: Dirk Nowitzki to become an unrestricted free agent, as expected

    Jun 28, 2010, 1:39 PM EDT

    There was an outside chance that Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks could have agreed to the terms of a contract extension before free agency begins on Thursday. That opportunity seems to have drifted away, as Eddie Sefko of the Dallas Morning news reported that according to an unnamed source, that “if the face of…
