  4. Have the Miami Heat contacted you? They've reached out to everyone else.

    Jul 1, 2010, 1:18 PM EDT

    You think the human beings have yet to be cloned successfully. But after looking at what the Miami Heat have been up to in the first hours of free agency, I am convinced someone in Heat HQ has cracked the code. Otherwise there is no way they could have been in all these places. This…

  5. Why yes, Minnesota Timberwolves, Darko Milicic will gladly take your $20 million, please and thank you

    Jul 1, 2010, 1:07 PM EDT

    David Kahn is the most dangerous GM in the world. Not in the Sam Presti or Daryl Morey way, either; you don’t need to worry about his diabolical scheming or adaptable strategy, but rather how much irreparable damage he’s capable of doing to his team in a short time. Well, add another bad move to…

  7. Linas Kleiza still 50-50 on a return to the NBA

    Jul 1, 2010, 12:28 PM EDT

    Going to Europe is a surefire way to drop off the NBA fan radar for a bit, but don’t think for a second that teams have forgotten about Linas Kleiza. We haven’t seen Kleiza play stateside since the 2009 playoffs, but there’s a possibility he’ll make his return to the NBA next season through restricted…

  9. Anthony Morrow: Dead-eye shooter, post-apocalyptic Warrior, coveted free agent

    Jul 1, 2010, 12:00 PM EDT

    The Warriors have long been something of a basketball wasteland; even if it’s entertaining to watch Monta Ellis, Stephen Curry and the like run amok in Don Nelson’s post-apocalyptic world, all of their wins are empty, and their losses sobering reminders of where they are and where they’ll never go. So naturally, as basketball fans,…

    Jul 1, 2010, 11:27 AM EDT

    If Denver wants to win a title, they have to get past the Los Angeles Lakers first. And that is a tall order. Literally. The long front line of the Lakers — Andrew Bynum, Pau Gasol, Lamar Odom — has been a problem for Denver. So they are going to solve that with… Andris Biedrins?…
