  1. Tracy McGrady tries to impress Chicago Bulls next

    Jul 22, 2010, 12:05 PM EDT

    UPDATE 12:05 pm: McGrady made this tweet today: Clippers, Lakers, Bulls, Heat Which are the four teams he mentioned last night. But read on, as we explain the Clippers seem to have no interest, and the Heat are saying privately they are not going there. You can do the math from there.8:44 am: He is…

  2. Luke Ridnour officially part of Timberwolves, may be team's best point guard playing in America

    Jul 22, 2010, 11:51 AM EDT

    Luke Ridnour could start for the Minnesota Timberwolves at point guard next season. He’s certainly going to push Jonny Flynn. On that level, the Ridnour signing by Minnesota — made official on Wednesday, for four-years, $16 million –is a good one. I like Ridnour, like his game. I just keep trying to figure out the…

  3. Spurs pick up Summer League sharpshooter Gary Neal

    Jul 22, 2010, 11:22 AM EDT

    The Spurs have mastered the art of the quiet off-season move, so file this one away with the others: San Antonio has agree to a three-year deal with Summer Leaguer Gary Neal, according to Jonathan Givony of Draft Express (via Ridiculous Upside). There really isn’t an opportunity for Neal to waltz into consistent minutes, but…

  4. Epitaph for Michael Redd's career as a Buck

    Jul 22, 2010, 11:04 AM EDT

    The Bucks have made all kinds of moves this summer, and none of them have looked particularly good for Michael Redd. Re-signing John Salmons, a Redd quasi-replacement, was a start. Then they picked up Corey Maggette via trade, who would certainly hack into the minutes of a healthy Redd. Chris Douglas-Roberts and Keyon Dooling, too,…

  5. Yes Magic, you would team up with other superstars. In fact you did.

    Jul 22, 2010, 10:13 AM EDT

    Magic Johnson has done what we all do — we remember ourselves as better and more noble than we really were. We rewrite our personal histories to fit those better selves. Remember how Magic Johnson agreed with Michael Jordan? How he said the two would never have teamed up with other superstars because they were…

  6. Yao Ming not sure how good he can be anymore

    Jul 22, 2010, 9:48 AM EDT

    Yao Ming has doubts. In a refreshingly frank interview with China’s xinhuanet (via Slam), Yao expressed concerns about how far he can come back after a serious foot injury that sidelined him all of last season. “I have no idea if I can return the peak of my form,” the seven-time All-star center told China…

  7. Clippers ask about Andre Iguodala trade

    Jul 22, 2010, 9:13 AM EDT

    The Clippers have a pretty nice roster — Baron Davis at the point, Eric Gordon at the two, Blake Griffin as the power forward and Chris Kaman anchoring the middle. What they lack is an attacking wing player at the three. They struck out not only with LeBron James but with all the big name…

  8. Derrick Rose says he is never leaving Chicago. Never.

    Jul 21, 2010, 8:59 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose apparently does not listen to or take advice from Justin Beiber. Which shows he is smart. He’s also not taking the advice of The Fray. And finally, he is clearly not listening to or taking the advice of the best of the three — Romeo Void. Rose said “never.” As in he is…

  9. Report: Chris Paul to pressure Hornets to trade him

    Jul 21, 2010, 8:34 PM EDT

    Dell Demps, welcome to your nightmare. The brand new general manager of the Hornets is going to be met by Chris Paul trying to force his way out of New Orleans before the start of this season, according to Ken Berger at CBSsports.com. He wants out,” said the person, who has been briefed on Paul’s…

  10. Quasi-German Chris Kaman also out for the World Championships

    Jul 21, 2010, 7:47 PM EDT

    When Dirk Nowitzki was ruled out for this summer’s World Championships, Germany was ruled out with him. The German national team’s roster is beyond thin, and their only other notable player, Chris Kaman, is barely German. Oh, and not even playing. According to Marc Stein of ESPN.com, Kaman’s involvement with the national team hinged on…

  11. Rashad McCants had reason to miss Summer League, but he still is on outside looking in

    Jul 21, 2010, 6:46 PM EDT

    Rashad McCants was scheduled to be in Las Vegas for Summer League, he was on the Cleveland roster. A guy with game but who was not in the league last year due to his reputation as a huge head case — like coaches asking him to go see a psychiatrist head case (check out the…

  12. Matt Barnes weighing his options, not loving them

    Jul 21, 2010, 5:53 PM EDT

    Matt Barnes is as indecisive about where he will play next year as Jessica Alba is about her hair color. Well, to be fair, Barnes thought he had made a decision, and tweeted he was going to Toronto Monday. Except a few guys in suits forgot to do that math. So he is back on…

  13. David Lee out for World Championships, will not need surgery

    Jul 21, 2010, 4:32 PM EDT

    UPDATE 4:32 pm: Lee has been diagnosed with “mallet finger” which is when the tendon that allows control of the part of the finger beyond the last joint comes off. The treatment: wear a split on your finger for six weeks. But this is fairly common and treatable. 3:22 pm: You had a feeling things…

  14. Derrick Rose gets his wish, he is now the face of the Bulls

    Jul 21, 2010, 4:25 PM EDT

    There was talk that one reason LeBron James soured on Chicago as the place he would be taking his talents was the shadow cast by Michael Jordan. Let’s hope that was not the case, because great players embrace the challenge of living up to the past of a legendary franchise (see Kevin Garnett and Kobe…

  15. The World Championships vs. the Olympics

    Jul 21, 2010, 3:07 PM EDT

    Here in America, we are all about the gold medal. That’s what dream of growing up, what our young volleyball players and gymnasts strive to get. We love our bright, shiny objects that glisten in the sun. So when it comes to international basketball, we are all about the Olympics. That’s what we gear up…

  16. Steve Carell 's "decision" is Outback Steak House; Chili's responds with Comic Sans letter.

    Jul 21, 2010, 2:27 PM EDT

    Reportedly, the folks at ESPN wanted LeBron James to hold off on his decision until the day of the ESPY’s, so that one ego-stroking event could lead into another. Fortunately for all of us, the realities of the marketplace made that impossible. The ESPY’s had to settle for parody — Steve Carell’s decision to take…

  17. Where will Shaq land? Not where he wants to.

    Jul 21, 2010, 1:36 PM EDT

    Shaquille O’Neal made $20 million last season. He’s actually made at least that since 2001. Right now, he can’t get an offer for more than $2 million, according to Marc Stein of ESPN. There were reports of Atlanta offering him the mid-level exception of two years at $5.8 million, but we learned during Summer League…

  18. Cleveland to LeBron: "It's not us, it's you"

    Jul 21, 2010, 12:44 PM EDT

    The fine folks at BreakupwithLeBron.com put that together (via Dime Magazine). They are the people also putting together the donation locations where Clevelanders can drop off their LeBron gear and it will be donated to the homeless in Miami.  Check out the site, even buy one of the “It’s not us, it’s you” shirts. Then…

  19. Team USA is not on a cakewalk to the World Championship

    Jul 21, 2010, 12:28 PM EDT

    No Kobe, No LeBron, no problem. Team USA is just going to coast to the World Championship. Because we are the USA and we are that deep with talent. That’s what you all seem to think, based on everything from message boards to betting lines. You’re all wrong. The USA is sending a “B” team…

  20. After Toronto's stumble, the race for Matt Barnes is now wide open

    Jul 21, 2010, 11:06 AM EDT

    The Toronto Raptors thought they were close to acquiring Matt Barnes via sign-and-trade, but apparently somebody didn’t do their homework, causing the deal to go through. With no cap space left to sign Barnes, no Bird rights (or even early Bird rights), and the inability to use salary cap exceptions to sign him and subsequently…
