  1. Not everyone is opting out: Stojakovic and Radmanovic staying in their bloated deals

    Jun 28, 2010, 11:23 PM EDT

    It only seems like everyone is opting out of their contracts right now. There are some guys out there riding the gravy train of bad general manager decisions, guys who are perfectly happy to keep their current bloated deals for next season. Meet Peja Stojakovic and Vladimir Radmanovic. Stojakovic is owed $15.3 million next season…

  2. Derek Fisher says maybe Phil Jackson isn't really feeling the love

    Jun 28, 2010, 10:09 PM EDT

    We’re all talking about LeBron James decision, and the fruits of that tree. We forget that Phil Jackson is making a decision this week. One that could have more of a bearing on the next NBA champion than where LeBron lands. Phil Jackson and everyone around him have said it’s about his health, not about…

  3. Bosh officially becomes free agent, Colangelo expects him to leave

    Jun 28, 2010, 8:07 PM EDT

    It’s far from surprising news, but Chris Bosh’s free agency has now become official. After missing the playoffs with the Toronto Raptors last season, forward Chris Bosh has decided to opt out of his contract, making him an unrestricted free agent on July 1st.  Raptors GM Brian Coangelo sat down for an interview with Toronto’s…

  4. Your latest LeBron rumor: He and Bosh to Miami with Wade. It doesn't work, yet…

    Jun 28, 2010, 7:46 PM EDT

    UPDATE 7:46 pm: ESPN salary cap guru Larry Coon blew this idea of Wade/Bosh/LeBron out of the water tonight. Here were his comments on twitter: If they re-sign Wade, waive Jones & renounce all other FAs, they will have $27,596,027 cap room. Bron/Bosh are $16,568,908 each. So one or both of them would have to…

  5. Wojnarowski: Sarver interviews Lindsay for Suns GM spot

    Jun 28, 2010, 7:24 PM EDT

    According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, Phoenix Suns owner Robert Sarver will interview Spurs assistant general manager Jeff Lindsey for Phoenix’s vacant GM spot. However, sources tell Wojnarowski that Sarver’s overly hands-on approach to ownership might have Lindsay hesitant to accept the job: Lindsey is the frontrunner for the position, sources said, but it’s…

  6. Rockets to send fan bus to free agency meetings

    Jun 28, 2010, 6:34 PM EDT

    Well, this is certainly creative. According to ESPN’s Marc Stein, the Houston Rockets are planning to send a “three-truck caravan carrying fans” to the team’s free agency meetings. Apparently the idea came from the fans themselves, and will involve three “tricked-out Toyota Tundras” heading to Hope, ARK, where they will wait for the team’s itinerary.…

  7. The Nets new managers are not the boogeymen. Just for the record.

    Jun 28, 2010, 6:25 PM EDT

    When Mikhail Prokhorov’s name first started coming up as a potential owner of the Nets, you heard whispers: Does the NBA want to touch a guy who has touched the Russian mob? Didn’t he get arrested for having prostitutes around? Turns out, he was clean — or as clean as any other NBA owner, which…

  8. Byron Scott waits on no man. Not even Phil Jackson or LeBron James. So he says.

    Jun 28, 2010, 4:28 PM EDT

    Don’t believe what you read. Because what you read would say Byron Scott is waiting to see what Phil Jackson does about the Lakers job (because Scott has said before he covets that job) and what LeBron James plans to do in Cleveland (because that would be the prudent thing to do). Once he has…

  9. Warriors to make Anthony Tolliver a free agent (Chris Hunter, too)

    Jun 28, 2010, 3:55 PM EDT

    With the drafting of Ekpe Udoh last week, there became a frontcourt logjam in Golden State. Which seems weird for a team that needed more on an interior presence last season, but welcome to the Warriors. Don Nelson does that to you. General Manager Larry Riley cleared that up a little with a series of…

  10. Suns to plead with Stoudemire one last time not to leave

    Jun 28, 2010, 3:14 PM EDT

    Tuesday afternoon, the Phoenix Suns will sit down one last time with Amare Stoudemire and try to convince him to stay. To stay with a team that made it to the Western Conference finals. A team with Steve Nash. A team where the style of basketball is fun. Stoudemire’s agent told FanHouse that Stoudemire will…

  11. Nets set Keyon Dooling free

    Jun 28, 2010, 2:49 PM EDT

    If you love Keyon Dooling, set him free. That’s sort of what happened. In a pretty straightforward business move the Nets declined the option bought out the $3.8 million contract of Dooling to create even more cap space. The Nets liked him as a player, but want as much flexibility as possible this summer, and…

  12. Ownership and coaches, LeBron James has a lot to consider

    Jun 28, 2010, 2:32 PM EDT

    At some point, it’s going to come down to just him. LeBron James sitting in a quiet room (or laying in his bed or wherever he does his best thinking) and weighing all the options. Then making a choice. But there are a lot of variables in front of him. One is ownership — he’s…

  13. Don Nelson chooses Maui over Las Vegas

    Jun 28, 2010, 1:58 PM EDT

    At one point last season, Warriors coach Don Nelson publicly said he might coach the team’s Summer League entry in Las Vegas. But when the league starts in two weeks, Nelson will be in Maui, according to the Oakland Tribune. Assistant coach Keith Smart will run the show. The main reason for no Nelson? No…

  14. Report: Dirk Nowitzki to become an unrestricted free agent, as expected

    Jun 28, 2010, 1:39 PM EDT

    There was an outside chance that Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks could have agreed to the terms of a contract extension before free agency begins on Thursday. That opportunity seems to have drifted away, as Eddie Sefko of the Dallas Morning news reported that according to an unnamed source, that “if the face of…

  15. Dwight Howard jumps to Dan Fegan as agent

    Jun 28, 2010, 1:24 PM EDT

    Two months back, Dwight Howard left Aaron Goodwin as his agent, with rumors swirling a family member would take over, but now he has landed with Dan Fegan. Which makes it a pretty good summer for Fegan, who also has John Wall on his client list. Ken Berger of CBSSports had the story first, and…

  16. Magic trade for Gilbert Arenas a "definite possibility."

    Jun 28, 2010, 12:53 PM EDT

    The Orlando Magic are in a tough spot. One season removed from the NBA finals the ground is shifting beneath their feet — Chicago could be a power, Miami could return to power, maybe both… the road to the finals in the East is getting harder. Desperate times call for desperate measures — and nothing…

  17. Brad Miller part of the Celtics' plan to retool on the fly

    Jun 28, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    The Celtics are flagged to make a substantial drop-off next season, and if they’re to remain competitive in an Eastern Conference that seems to be consolidating talent (LeBron and Bosh to the Bulls? Wade and Amar’e to the Heat?), Boston will have to make some pretty significant moves. That’s tough given their cap situation, but…

  18. Report: Dallas Mavericks to pursue Joe Johnson

    Jun 28, 2010, 11:56 AM EDT

    Joe Johnson is one popular man. He will meet with the Atlanta Hawks this week before free agency begins. Once it does start, the Knicks will be talking to him not long after midnight. He has been rumored as a possibility with the Heat and Rockets as well. Now add Dallas to the mix. Yahoo’s…

  19. LeBron in Chicago: The Jerry Reinsdorf question

    Jun 28, 2010, 11:17 AM EDT

    LeBron to Chicago, with Chris Bosh. Teamed with Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah. A force in the NBA for the next decade. That is unquestionably how it is going down, right? Except, there are a few questions. Starting with: Would Bulls onwer Jerry Reinsdorf be willing to pay the price for it? Does LeBron James…

  20. Knicks "Plan B" of Johnson/Stoudemire fast becoming "Plan A"

    Jun 28, 2010, 10:10 AM EDT

    The Knicks will be in Cleveland on Thursday afternoon, making their pitch to LeBron James — you can be the biggest star on the biggest stage. We can bring in another star with you. There is nothing like winning in New York. But hours before they do that, they will be pitching Joe Johnson and…
