    Jul 9, 2010, 8:51 PM EDT

  6. The Spurs will celebrate four more years of Matt Bonner

    Jul 9, 2010, 5:54 PM EDT

    Like it or not, there was legitimate interest in Matt Bonner. The guy may be an NBA punchline, but he’s a big body and a consistent outside shooter, which are two pretty valuable traits for rotation players. Though rather than signing as an afterthought with the Miami Heat or filling in as a designated shooter…

    Jul 9, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    Come early November, there will be NBA games at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland. Nobody in Cleveland wants to think about it today, but it will happen.

  11. Boozer's gone, so now what, Utah?

    Jul 9, 2010, 3:17 PM EDT

    Cleveland is still in the mourning phase. Utah has moved on to the “what do we do now?” phase of rebuilding a team after losing a star. Except Utah is not really rebuilding, they are restructuring. The Jazz are in pretty good shape. In part because they have Deron Williams, one of the best point…

  12. Report: Heat trying to convince Cavaliers to do sign-and-trade for LeBron

    Jul 9, 2010, 2:56 PM EDT

    Things that are never going to happen: Dane Cook winning and Oscar for his acting; Jerry Buss selling the Lakers to Donald Sterling; Britney Spears recording a song I tolerate… And Cleveland agreeing to a sign and trade for LeBron James.

  13. Who else fills out the Miami roster?

    Jul 9, 2010, 1:39 PM EDT

    For the most part, a guy making the minimum salary in the NBA is doing so for a reason. Not the kind of reasons that help with championships. But maybe a couple bigger names will take less money to play with Miami Thrice (is that what we’re calling them?) and Mike Miller in South Beach.…

  14. Complain about LeBron infomercial all you want, you still tuned in to watch

    Jul 9, 2010, 1:09 PM EDT

    Media is the ultimate democracy in our profit driven world. We know exactly how many people come to this blog every day and what you read. Same with every other Web site out there. Same with television. Don’t like something, ignore it and it goes away. If you can’t deliver viewers to advertisers, if people…

  15. Evan Turner is having a rough Summer League

    Jul 9, 2010, 12:12 PM EDT

    Welcome to the NBA, Evan Turner. Well, not even the NBA. Summer League, which is a  few steps below the NBA in terms of quality of play. But it has still flummoxed the No. 2 pick so far. I watched two games and he has had moments of quality play but mostly has struggled. He’s…

  16. Dwyane Wade has some roommates for "his house"

    Jul 9, 2010, 11:09 AM EDT

      Dwyane Wade is a happy man today. Stunning, I know. But he also has always been the most driven of the three — he gets that this grand experiment is a failure if they don’t win multiple titles.

  17. Clippers sign Ryan Gomes

    Jul 9, 2010, 10:58 AM EDT

    It’s not LeBron, but it’s not bad, either. Actually, it’s pretty smart — the Los Angeles Clippers have reached a deal with Ryan Gomes, as reported by Associated Press. Combined with the signing of Randy Foye yesterday, the Clippers have upgraded themselves. Without breaking the bank — three years and $12 million for Gomes. You…

    Jul 9, 2010, 9:54 AM EDT

    UPDATE 9:54 am: It didn’t take long, and Walsh responded by saying the reports of his death have been greatly exaggerated.
