  1. Tiago Splitter is officially a Spur, and you don't realize how big this is

    Jul 13, 2010, 9:35 AM EDT

    You know what deal Western Conference executives have been raving about this week in Vegas? Tiago Splitter to the Spurs. A deal that became official now and at an incredible price of three years for $11 million. Splitter clearly wants to be here as a he took a paycut to leave Saski Baskonia, the team…

  2. Luke Ridnour nears four-year deal with Timberwolves to add to team's point guard collection

    Jul 13, 2010, 8:47 AM EDT

    The Minnesota Timberwolves brought in Kurt Rambis to run the triangle, but he had to partially abandon or alter many of those sets last year because he didn’t have the right personnel to do it. It was a team where the offense had to start with a slashing point guard, but the triangle is not…

  3. Nate Robinson is close to deal to remain in Boston

    Jul 13, 2010, 8:20 AM EDT

    Shrek and donkey will be back for another go around. Nate Robinson is close to a deal that will keep the backup guard in green for another season, according to his agent Aaron Goodwin, talking to the Boston Herald. “Things are going well,” Goodwin said. “We’re just trying to get something worked out. But both…

  4. Fear DeMarcus Cousins, for he is a beast

    Jul 13, 2010, 12:31 AM EDT

    How did this guy fall to No. 5 again? One Summer League game is a meaninglessly small sample size. But it was big enough to make you realize this — DeMarcus Cousins could be a beast in the NBA. He is a big man in a world of big men, but he has touch and…

  5. Barbosa, Boris Diaw, Tyson Chandler, Hedo Turkoglu trade on the rocks due to MJ

    Jul 12, 2010, 11:57 PM EDT

    UPDATE 11:57 pm: This deal may fall apart by the time you wake up in the morning. The seemingly omni-present Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo tweets that this seemingly done deal is now on the rocks. You can thank MJ. Charlotte owner Michael Jordan has had “second thoughts” on trade with Toronto and deal is suddenly…

  6. Miami is closer to filling out its roster than you think — and you know these guys

    Jul 12, 2010, 11:24 PM EDT

    Mike Miller has now agreed to terms with the Miami Heat, according to our man Ira Winderman down in Miami. That brings the Heat roster up to six signed — Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, Chris Bosh, Mario Chalmers, Udonis Haslem and now Miller. That’s the top six of a contender. But how do they fill…

  7. Wizards sign Hilton Armstrong to one-year deal

    Jul 12, 2010, 11:02 PM EDT

    According to Michael Lee of the Washington Post, the Washington Wizards have signed center Hilton Armstrong to a one-year deal.  Armstrong was the 12th overall pick in the 2006 draft, but he has yet to do much in his NBA career. Last season, Armstrong averaged 2.2 points, 2.5 rebounds, and .4 blocks per game while…

  8. Utah closing in on deal to get Al Jefferson

    Jul 12, 2010, 10:47 PM EDT

    Would you trade Carlos Boozer for Al Jefferson? That’s what the Utah Jazz are close to doing, as they are close to a deal that would ship the Jefferson to Utah — and maybe send no players back to Minnesota, according to Marc Stein of ESPN. Utah has a $14 million trade exception from the…

  9. David Stern not a fan of "The Decision" but is fan of right of players to choose

    Jul 12, 2010, 10:02 PM EDT

    It wasn’t LeBron’s decision that bothered David Stern, it was “The Decision.” In press conference in Las Vegas Monday, David Stern said LeBron James was more than free to make any decision he wanted, as were Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade. He credited Miami with clearing the cap space to pull off the coup. Tampering?…

  10. Mavs pick up Spurs alumnus Ian Mahinmi on the cheap

    Jul 12, 2010, 8:40 PM EDT

    Brendan Haywood is the only center the Mavs have under contract for next season, so rotation bigs remain fairly high on Dallas’ off-season wish list. Erick Dampier will soon be shipped out to allow the Mavericks to benefit from his instantly expiring contract, and optimally the Mavs will need two more players who can hold…

  11. Stern fines Dan Gilbert $100,000 for LeBron letter

    Jul 12, 2010, 8:08 PM EDT

    David Stern has just announced that he will fine Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert $100,000 for his open letter to Cleveland fans, which Gilbert wrote shortly after LeBron James announced on ESPN that he would sign with the Miami Heat. When explaining the fine, Stern called Gilbert’s letter both “ill-advised” and “imprudent.”  Stern was not a…

  12. Pacers get $33 million to stay in. Would you stay in Indy for that?

    Jul 12, 2010, 7:51 PM EDT

    Does your city have an extra $33 million laying around? Indianapolis does, apparently. Monday the city and the Pacers announced a new deal where the city will pour $10 million a year to cover operations at the Canseco Field House, plus put in another $3 million in the next few years in upgrades and renovations…

  13. Dan Gilbert disagrees with Rev. Jesse Jackson's comment's about him

    Jul 12, 2010, 5:11 PM EDT

    Earlier this week, the Reverend Jesse Jackson issued a statement that said Dan Gilbert’s open letter personified a “slave master mentality,” and that Gilbert viewed James as a “runaway slave.” In case you missed it earlier today, here is video of Jackson defending his views on Gilbert.  On Monday, Gilbert released an extremely brief statement…

  14. Derek Fisher returns to the Lakers — but for three years?

    Jul 12, 2010, 5:02 PM EDT

    Derek Fisher was coming back to the Lakers. He flirted with Miami, but they could offer even less money than the Lakers. And more than money, it was about comfort. He fits well in the triangle. He could win titles in L.A. And Kobe Bryant wanted him back. It was going to happen. But for…

  15. Morrow to Nets will be a sign-and-trade, Warriors will not match

    Jul 12, 2010, 4:52 PM EDT

    According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, the Nets have made a sign-and-trade deal with the Warriors for Anthony Morrow.  Morrow had been a restricted free agent, but the Warriors agreeing to a sign-and-trade means that they have given up their right to match the three-year, $12 million dollar offer sheet Morrow signed with the…

  16. Udonis Haslem returning to the Heat

    Jul 12, 2010, 4:06 PM EDT

    For once, it wasn’t about the money. Udonis Haslem got much larger offers from the Dallas Mavericks and Denver Nuggets and is returning to the Miami Heat, according to our own Ira Winderman (writing for the South Florida Sun Sentinel.). Haslem had wanted to stay in Miami, but he wasn’t sure how much the Heat…

  17. Udonis Haslem has some choices to make

    Jul 12, 2010, 3:23 PM EDT

    UPDATE 3:23 pm: Just to add to the options for Haslem, the Denver Nuggets are also making a hard push for him. Denver also is offering the full mid-level exception, just like Dallas. And just like Dallas, they are looking for front line guys to match up against the Lakers. 9: 34 am: How badly…

  18. Jesse Jackson defends his statements about Dan Gilbert

    Jul 12, 2010, 3:04 PM EDT

      Hear the words from the man himself. And I will add this: He’s right about the fines, the accountability in the NBA. Mark Cuban and Steve Kerr got fined for tampering for innocent comments. Gilbert likely will not get fined for this. But what Gilbert did was a far bigger black eye for the…

  19. Quenton Richardson headed to the Orlando Magic

    Jul 12, 2010, 2:55 PM EDT

    The Matt Barnes era in Orlando is over. Long live Quenton Richardson. Richardson has reached a deal with the Orlando Magic, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo. Richardson fits what Orlando likes to do — he shot 40 percent from three last year. And Orlando likes to shoot the three. He also is a pretty…

  20. JaVale McGee with a little Summer League showtime

    Jul 12, 2010, 2:31 PM EDT

    Summer League play — and the “defense” often played there” means guys get open, guys get breakaways in a way you don’t see in the regular season game. Washington’s JaVale McGee took full advantage of that. (He also had some nice connections with John Wall for dunks as well.)
