    Jul 11, 2010, 10:48 AM EDT

  5. Magic strongly considering matching Bulls' offer for Redick

    Jul 11, 2010, 9:39 AM EDT

    The Orlando Magic must really dislike the restricted free agency system. Because there have been several times where it really seems like they’re just matching offers from other teams out of spite. Last year it was Marcin Gortat, who was frozen in place despite an offer from the Mavericks that would have given him more…

  11. The Nets may or may not be a chicken with its head cut off, sign Johan Petro

    Jul 10, 2010, 5:07 PM EDT

    When the Nets struck out in the Free Agency Summer of Doom, they had to figure out someway to fill out the roster. They drafted Derrick Favors because he was the smart choice, if not the most talented. And since then? They’ve been a little odd. Signing Travis Outlaw. Okay, sure. You need a wing…

    Jul 10, 2010, 4:14 PM EDT

  13. Pat Riley is totally serious about Erik Spoelstra as coach; no one believes him

    Jul 10, 2010, 3:24 PM EDT

    What’s that? The Heat are back in contention? Start the Pat Riley coup d’etat rumors! Heave! Heave you miserable media writers! Heave! Pat Riley, though, is having none of it. After the unbearably ridiculous press conference to introduce the Heat, Riley re-asserted what he’s said all along, and what LeBron James and Dwyane Wade have…

  14. Jerry Buss is not handing over the Larry O'Brien trophy to Miami. At least not willingly.

    Jul 10, 2010, 3:15 PM EDT

    Good luck prying the NBA title out of the hands of the Los Angeles Lakers. Lakers owner Jerry Buss was in Vegas to watch some Summer League ball (and play in the World Series of Poker; and probably not in that order) when Sam Amick from FanHouse asked him if LeBron James in Miami scared…

    Jul 10, 2010, 1:13 PM EDT

    Hey, you know what would be fun? If we somehow took the ridiculous spectacle of the Free Agency Summer of Doom to whole new levels. That would be fun.   http://nbcprobasketballtalk.files.wordpress.com/2010/06/33399740 And then Dan Gilbert’s music played and he came out with Mo Williams and hit them in the back of the head with a…

    Jul 10, 2010, 11:47 AM EDT

    Man, is this going to get awkward.

Courtesy of Heat blog Peninsula is Mightier…

    Jul 10, 2010, 10:42 AM EDT

    The numbers have come out, and the Miami Thrice team-up of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh are true to their word, money was not the main thing. Okay, it was a pretty big thing. James and Bosh are each making $110.1 million over the course of six years, with Wade making $107. It’s…
