  1. DeMarcus Cousins named rookie of the month, despite late drop off

    Jul 19, 2010, 8:57 AM EDT

    To say DeMarcus Cousins was a revelation at Summer League is to say how far his stock had fallen. Anyone who watched him at Kentucky knew he could dominate, but the questions about his focus and mental readiness for the NBA had him slip down the draft board. But only to number five and the…

  2. Some thoughts from the final day of Summer League

    Jul 19, 2010, 8:00 AM EDT

    Just got home after 10 days in Las Vegas — a crazy experience, to say the least. Here are some quick thoughts from the final day of action: -I was definitely too hard on Jeremy Lin in my original evaluation of him. I absolutely loved and continue to love his approach to the game, but…

  3. Barkley is still Barkley. Oh, and he didn't like the LeBron circus

    Jul 18, 2010, 11:57 PM EDT

      Charles Barkley, talking LeBron. And the fact he was golfing left handed this week.

  4. Jordan wouldn't have called up Bird, Magic to be teammates, he wanted to beat them

    Jul 18, 2010, 11:12 PM EDT

      Michael Jordan is still a competitor. Don’t get him wrong, he’d like the money the big free agents are getting now. But he says he wouldn’t have called up Larry Bird or Magic Johnson and wanted to team up. “I wanted to beat those guys.” Times are different now. For better or for worse,…

  5. UPDATE: Dwyane Wade misquoted about 9/11

    Jul 18, 2010, 5:44 PM EDT

    UPDATE: NBA FanHouse has issued a retraction to the quote due to a transcription error. As word spread of the alleged quote, outrage was heavy. The correct quote from Wade was: “”We’re going to be wearing a bullseye. But that’s what you play for,” Wade said. “We enjoy the bullseye. Plus, there’s going to be…

  6. Miami signs James Jones, really wants to shoot threes

    Jul 18, 2010, 3:36 PM EDT

    The Miami Heat needed to fill out their roster. And they’ve certainly done so decently. Today, our own Ira Winderman clues us in that the Heat have re-signed veteran wing and three-point specialist James Jones. Jones is a three point dagger man, but after re-signing with the Heat two years ago, he’s been largely marginal.…

  7. Report: LeBron James' new house is basically a small planet

    Jul 18, 2010, 1:41 PM EDT

    A popular joke among NBA folks is that with all the angst LeBron James has created among people this summer, he’ll have to comfort himself on his gigantic bed of money. And according to Life and Style Magazine via AOL FanHouse, that bed of money will have quite a bit of room for a chair…

  8. Charlotte may keep Erick Dampier, but not at $13 million

    Jul 18, 2010, 10:59 AM EDT

    If there is one sure thing left this summer besides washed up players begging for a comeback with the Heat, it is that Erick Dampier’s contract will be terminated. He is due $13 million next season, and the fact that it was a non-guaranteed deal made him a trading chip this summer. Dallas cashed in…

  9. Amare Stoudemire would have stayed in Phoenix with a max deal

    Jul 17, 2010, 11:10 PM EDT

    Here’s the bottom line question: Do you think Amare Stoudemire is a max player? New York did — they knew they needed to pay to get someone to start rebuilding around, someone who they could market. Stoudemire was that guy (if not the first choice, or second, or…). Phoenix did not. But if they had…

  10. Hornets' sale still in dispute

    Jul 17, 2010, 9:51 PM EDT

    The New Orleans Hornets need a GM in place, immediately. Chris Paul is getting antsy, the roster could use some serious upgrades if they want to contend, and new head coach Monty Williams needs to have someone to work with on acquisitions. And the process is certainly getting there, with Dell Demps emerging as the…

  11. Mike D'Antoni on Anthony Randolph's role with the new Knicks

    Jul 17, 2010, 6:40 PM EDT

    When the Knicks acquired Anthony Randolph in a sign-and-trade for David Lee, there was a lot of discussion about how he’d fit into D’Antoni’s system. Randolph has been the subject of a million discussions about the possibility of running point forward, and when he was moved to D’Antoni’s club those discussions exploded. Randolph carries with…

  12. Good news Warriors fans, new owner says he is "not Al Davis"

    Jul 17, 2010, 4:48 PM EDT

    There are a lot of questions for Joseph A. Lacob, the guy taking the reins as the new owner of the Golden State Warriors. Fortunately for him, he doesn’t have to answer the hard ones — about house cleaning in the front office, for example — until he formally gets control of the team in…

  13. Houston Rockets sign Brad Miller

    Jul 17, 2010, 2:10 PM EDT

    Houston needed some depth down low, even after re-signing Luis Scola and with Yao Ming returning. They needed a center with size to come off the bench and potentially hit from the perimeter to stretch the floor. Today they addressed that need. Marc Stein of ESPN is reporting the Rockets have signed center Brad Miller…

  14. Report: If LeBron's friends get jobs with the Heat, the NBA may investigate

    Jul 17, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

    In Cleveland, LeBron’s posse had the run of the place. They were VIPs in the arena and in the city. Some of his friends even got jobs within the Cleveland organization. It is rumored that one of the things that really hurt Chicago in talks with LeBron James was a clear line in the sand…

  15. New Hornets coach Monty Williams wants to clear the air with Chris Paul

    Jul 17, 2010, 10:48 AM EDT

    And by “clear the air” we mean “try and convince him not to demand a trade which would result in the outright horrific downfall of the franchise.” CBSSports.com’s Ken Berger reports that Hornets head coach Monty Williams plans on sitting down with point guard Chris Paul for a conversation about where the team is headed…

  16. Twists and turns as police investigate LeBron James pendant case

    Jul 17, 2010, 10:34 AM EDT

    UPDATE 7/17 10:34 am: So maybe our innocent heroine is not so innocent. Vaneisha Robinson, the woman who said she bought the pendant at a garage sale four years ago, is now a suspect in the case for receiving stolen property. Her story always had one big question mark: Someone really sold a $10,000 pendant…

  17. John Wall to JaVale McGee: You're going to see a lot of this

    Jul 17, 2010, 10:01 AM EDT

    If one connection has been made at Summer League, it’s that John Wall and high-flying JaVale McGee — they have teamed up for a lot of these. This one was from Friday (and it wasn’t even the best dunk McGee had Friday, not sure what the NBA did with the monster dunk footage). If the…

  18. NBA summer league: Notes on Raptors-Kings

    Jul 17, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    Notes and observations on Pistons-Kings at Las Vegas summer league… DeMarcus Cousins is worn out. Cousins slugged through a bad performance today versus the Pistons, finishing 5-18. Still, he dropped 16 and 10, and actually finished with a triple-double (16,10, and 10 fouls). That’s right, DeMarcus Cousins fouled out of a Summer League game. But…

  19. Miami Heat goes big: re-signs Joel Anthony, inks draftee Dexter Pittman

    Jul 16, 2010, 8:44 PM EDT

    It’s the question a lot of basketball people were asking after Miami pulled off the LeBron/Wade/Bosh coup: Who protects the rim on defense? Who is your real big man? The answer: Joel Anthony. And Dexter Pittman is in there too. Miami re-signed Joel Anthony to a five-year, $18 million deal, according to our own Ira…

  20. Paul Pierce realizes that the status quo may not be good enough for Boston

    Jul 16, 2010, 7:47 PM EDT

    The Boston Celtics are getting the band back together. The band that made it all the way to Game 7 of the NBA finals. Good band. Next year, the band may not be good enough — there is an arms race in the East. And Paul Pierce knows it (as reported at ESPNBoston). “I thought…
