  1. Reinsdorf: Six Bulls titles would not have happened without Pippen

    Aug 6, 2010, 9:02 PM EDT

    Scottie Pippen was a fantastic player. Scottie Pippen deserves to be in the Hall of Fame, as will formally happen next week. Pippen deserves the accolades that will come his way. But it’s hard to read what Bulls owner Jerry Riesndorf said about Pippen to Bulls.com without feeling there is another slight toward Michael Jordan…

  2. Bulls sign deal with Keith Bogans, you can forget about McGrady now

    Aug 6, 2010, 7:41 PM EDT

    The Bulls wanted a little more depth on the wing, someone who could stretch the floor. Enter Keith Bogans, the former Spur who started 50 games for the team last year, signed a two-year deal with the Bulls. Bogans is a solid outside shooter (35.7 percent from three last year) who can be plugged in…

  3. Roddy Beaubois suffers broken foot

    Aug 6, 2010, 6:37 PM EDT

    UPDATE 7:13 PM: According to MacMahon’s extended report, Beaubois has broken his fifth metatarsal in his left foot, and could potentially miss three months as he may require surgery. No specific timetable will be set for Beaubois until team officials can better determine the specifics of his injury. 6:37 PM: Bad news for Mavericks fans,…

  4. Is Yi Jianlian poised for a breakout season?

    Aug 6, 2010, 6:28 PM EDT

    At this point in his career, former #6 overall pick Yi Jianlian would have to be considered something of a bust. He had a decent enough year last season, averaging 12 points and 7.2 rebounds a game, but shot only 40% from the field and was traded for Quinton Ross last June.  Truth About It’s…

  5. Doc Rivers wasn't taking calls from anyone, including president Obama

    Aug 6, 2010, 5:30 PM EDT

    Usually, when the President of the United States wants to get in touch with you, he gets in touch with you. Unless you’re Doc Rivers. The day after Boston’s Game 7 loss to Los Angeles, Rivers cell phone rang with a 202 phone number. We’ll let the Orlando Sentinel take the story from there. Doc…

  6. Anthony Tolliver has made "The Decision Part Deux:" He will sign with Minnesota

    Aug 6, 2010, 4:26 PM EDT

    Classic. Got to love Anthony Tolliver. Tolliver has agreed to a two-year deal with Minnesota worth up to $4.8 million. It had been down to Minnesota and Golden State, and while Tolliver had said he preferred the Bay Area if the money was significantly more he was going to take the money. Minnesota and David…

  7. Charlotte picks up undrafted free agent Sherron Collins

    Aug 6, 2010, 4:19 PM EDT

    The Charlotte Bobcats are about to find out just how rough life after Raymond Felton can be. With D.J. Augustin and Shaun Livingston as the primary point guards on the roster, Charlotte has added Sherron Collins as the team’s third PG, giving the Bobcats a trio of young guards to pair with Stephen Jackson. Between…

  8. Knicks are bringing back Isiah Thomas as a consultant. No, it is not April 1.

    Aug 6, 2010, 3:44 PM EDT

    UPDATE 3:44 pm: The NBA is officially looking into this deal — where a college head coach consults with an NBA team and is considered a player “recruiter” — to see if it violates league rules. Those league rules include that a team representative cannot have contact with college underclassmen. Which is essentially the core…

  9. One Cavalier to watch: J.J. Hickson

    Aug 6, 2010, 3:27 PM EDT

    While the Cavaliers were losing to the Boston Celtics, J.J. Hickson spent a lot of time watching. Hickson played just shy of 21 minutes a game during last regular season, but that dropped to 7.2 minutes per game in the playoffs. Plenty of people wanted to know why. Byron Scott is not going to make…

  10. John Salmons takes aim for the fourth seed

    Aug 6, 2010, 3:11 PM EDT

    The Milwaukee Bucks were an immensely successful team last season relative to expectation, and there’s no reason why they can’t be even better in the coming year. There aren’t a lot of young pieces on the roster set to grow, but the internal development of Brandon Jennings and Andrew Bogut combined with the numerous moves…

  11. Ever seen a shot off a silo before?

    Aug 6, 2010, 2:38 PM EDT

    I care little about the semantics of the trick shot — what is the longest/farthest/whatever. I know that’s a big controversy and all for some folks, just can’t get into it. I just like the shots. And as I live in the city, I had never thought of what the East Side crew did. Enjoy.…

  12. Atlanta is apparently very, very desperate for another center

    Aug 6, 2010, 1:29 PM EDT

    The Hawks were long linked to Shaquille O’Neal, but despite the Hawk’s need for a big, strong post defender (to tackle the challenges Al Horford is ill-suited for) and some interior scoring (ATL was 21st in the league in field goal attempts at the rim last season), it wasn’t meant to be. O’Neal is now…

  13. Jerry Buss says the Lakers are not cutting costs. Very true — on the court.

    Aug 6, 2010, 12:45 PM EDT

    Right now, as you are reading this, the Lakers have a payroll of $91,906,072 for next season (thank you Sham Sports). That is more than $500,000 higher than the Lakers payroll last season, which was already higher than any other team in the Association. And we are underestimating Shannon Brown’s salary by roughly $500,000. Plus…

  14. Brian Scalabrine wants to stay, but may not be long for this NBA world

    Aug 6, 2010, 12:25 PM EDT

    It may not be the best move for Boston roster-wise or payroll-wise, but part of me wants Brian Scalabrine to stay a Celtic forever. Couldn’t they throw the veteran’s minimum his way, just for old time’s sake? Maybe from now until, well, the end of eternity? Scal just looks so natural in Celtic green/suits on…

  15. Shaq can eat but he is no Joey Chestnut

    Aug 6, 2010, 12:17 PM EDT

    Nobody who has seen Shaquille O’Neal in the past few years questions that the man can eat. But the man is no professional. Some footage from the upcoming “Shaq vs.” leaked and it has O’Neal taking on professional competitive eater Joey Chestnut — the slayer of Kobayashi — in a hot dog eating contest. And…

  16. Joakim Noah will not suit up for France in World Championships

    Aug 6, 2010, 10:46 AM EDT

    You don’t think of France as an international basketball powerhouse — because they are not — but they were going to roll out an impressive and long NBA front line in Turkey next month: Joakim Noah (Chicago), Boris Diaw (Charlotte) and Ian Mahinmi (Dallas). Well, they still have two thirds of that. French coach Vincent…

  17. Why Shaq didn't go to Atlanta: money and minutes

    Aug 6, 2010, 10:04 AM EDT

    Shaquille O’Neal and his people tried hard. They pushed the idea that he as a bargain at the mid-level exception of $5.8 million, that he was a guy who should start and get big minutes still. That is what got in the way of him coming to Atlanta, and saving face was why he chose…

  18. Sean May reaches deal with Nets

    Aug 6, 2010, 9:17 AM EDT

    The New Jersey Nets have signed forward Sean May to a one-year deal, according to Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski. What that really means: You are going to see a lot of Derrick Favors for the Nets. The Nets have not really brought in a guy who can backup Favors for extended minutes. They are going to…

  19. Don Nelson waits on a call from Golden State

    Aug 6, 2010, 8:40 AM EDT

    One does not win more games than any other NBA coach in history if one is not smart. Don Nelson is smart, he knows what is happening with Golden State. He knows there is new ownership, he knows there are plans to let him go. So he is not coming back to the Bay Area…

  20. Celtics loaded with All-Stars, but that is not a good sign

    Aug 6, 2010, 8:20 AM EDT

    Shaquille O’Neal has appeared in 15 All-Star games. He has only danced with the Jabbawockeez at one of them, but he’s been to the game a lot. So have his Celtics teammates — they have 54 All-Star appearances as team. As you might imagine, that is far and away the most in the NBA. That’s…
