  1. Phil Jackson says he's leaning toward retirement

    Jun 23, 2010, 4:22 PM EST

    Just a few minutes before, Kobe Bryant had refused to even discuss the idea of Phil Jackson retiring, calling it a “buzz kill.” Earlier still Derek Fisher wondered if he would come back if Jackson did not. But right now, Phil Jackson is considering stepping away, which is what he told the media after conducting…

  2. Tom Thibodeau starts selling the future

    Jun 23, 2010, 4:06 PM EST

    There was nothing earth shattering from Tom Thibodeau’s first appearance as the Chicago Bulls head coach. He didn’t come out and say Michael Jordan was an overrated player, or he prefers New York style thin-crust pizza, or profess his love for the Green Bay Packers. There were no cardinal sins of Chicago etiquette. What Thibodeau…

  3. Ron Harper on Kobe: "He's the closest thing we've ever had to Jordan"

    Jun 23, 2010, 3:12 PM EST

    Ron Harper has perspective. He was on the Bulls during their heyday for three titles. He was on the Lakers for the first two titles of the Kobe/Shaq era. Through it all he was like a coach on the floor. And he told FanHouse Jordan remains the best, but don’t think the gap is very…

  4. Cavs shop around Mo Williams, but DeLonte West is the one you can have

    Jun 23, 2010, 2:22 PM EST

    UPDATE 2:22 pm: Mo Williams really doesn’t want to be traded. Check out what he put up on his twitter account: Pls don’t trade me, I’m not ready to go. I’m begging. My work ain’t done yet. I’m on both knees….pls. I’m serious 11:42 am: Cleveland is considering everything right now. You have a seven-team…

  5. The Lakers' backcourt is going to look dramatically different next season

    Jun 23, 2010, 1:55 PM EST

    It was pointed at as a significant weakness all year, and now it’s looking like the Los Angeles Lakers backcourt, despite being good enough to win a championship, will go through dramatic shakeups this summer. First up is Shannon Brown, or as I like to call him, “King of the Missed Garbage Time Dunk.” NBA…

  6. Hormets owner George Shinn says Chris Paul is not going anywhere. Sort of.

    Jun 23, 2010, 1:38 PM EST

    Once trade rumors get rolling, they are almost impossible to stop. Even when they made no sense. Like the Hornets trying to trade Chris Paul. That’s not a normal kind of insane, that’s like Charlie Manson level insane. It makes no real sense. So owner George Shinn came forward to put an end to that…

  7. Knicks talking Rudy Fernandez trade with Portland

    Jun 23, 2010, 1:18 PM EST

    Rudy Fernandez is not a happy man in Portland. He feels he never got a chance, he feels ignored, he doesn’t like the coach, doesn’t like how he’s being used, probably doesn’t even like the pastrami burger at Kenny & Zuke’s Delicatessen. And everybody likes the pastrami burger at Kenny & Zuke’s. Maybe what he…

  8. Spencer Hawes gets another chance, but Philadelphia is not so forgiving

    Jun 23, 2010, 12:36 PM EST

    Right now, everything is good between Spencer Hawes and Philadelphia. The management there, his teammates, the fans are all good with him. It was that way in Sacramento for a long time. He was to be the future. Hawes and the fans loved each other. But that soured. He can drain threes (at a 30…

  9. Corey Maggette and Chris Douglas-Roberts aren't perfect, but could be just what the Bucks need

    Jun 23, 2010, 12:02 PM EST

    It’s been said that if given the right touches and opportunity, most NBA players can be transformed in 20-point scorers. Move such a claim within the limits of reason however (come on, is any team really going to give Jarron Collins 35 shots a night to hit that mark?), and the pool of players in…

  10. Manu Ginobili loses shooting contest to a 13 year old

    Jun 23, 2010, 10:50 AM EST

    The Spurs need to get younger, we may have found their guy. Maybe the guy to replace Manu Ginobili some day. I’ll let the San Antonio Express-News explain: Making a short appearance at the Spurs’ youth summer camp at the University of the Incarnate Word, Ginobili — Olympic gold medalist, international icon and three-time NBA…

  11. Anyone want to trade for Elton Brand? Anyone? Hello?

    Jun 23, 2010, 10:35 AM EST

    The Sixers really, really want to trade Elton Brand. Really, really. He is the anchor on their grand rebuilding plans. First they tried to package him with the No. 2 pick, but there were no real bites on the line so now the Sixers are pretty set on taking Evan Turner in that spot. Now…

  12. Chris Douglas-Roberts traded to Bucks for a second-round pick, Nets to target Boozer in free agency

    Jun 23, 2010, 9:57 AM EST

    UPDATE 9:57 pm: The two sides have reached a deal — the Nets will get a 2012 second round pick, according to Chad Ford. The NBA equivalent of a player to be named later. That is not much to get back for an up-and-coming player like CDR. But it does free up just more than…

  13. Chris Paul wants to stay in New Orleans, but only if team is commits to winning

    Jun 23, 2010, 9:48 AM EST

    Trade rumors — totally ridiculous trade rumors for the most part — are swirling around Chris Paul. But nobody asked Chris Paul about it. Well, until Chris Broussard of ESPN the Magazine did. “My first choice is to be in New Orleans,” Paul said in a telephone interview from London. “I just want to make…

  14. NBA Draft: Sacramento may take Ekpe Udoh over Greg Monroe, and Monroe could fall farther

    Jun 23, 2010, 9:27 AM EST

    What the Warriors want when they pick at No. 6 is DeMarcus Cousins. But if Mick Jagar has taught us one thing, it’s that you can’t always get what you want (because Sacramento takes him). But if they have to settle for getting what they need, that will likely be Ekpe Udoh out of Baylor,…

  15. Piston's Charlie Villanueva arrested on domestic assault charge

    Jun 22, 2010, 10:52 PM EST

    The disappointments just keep coming from Charlie Villanueva. He was arrested and charged related to a May 19 incident in Burlington, Ontario, a Canadian city 65 miles from Buffalo, according to an Associated Press report.  His lawyer, Owen Wigderson, says Villanueva, “denies all allegations of wrongdoing and I’m very confident that he’ll be exonerated.”  Villanueva is…

  16. Kobe, Lakers want Raja Bell in free agency

    Jun 22, 2010, 9:57 PM EST

    Do not adjust your computer screen. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, the Los Angeles Lakers have taken a strong interest in free agent guard Raja Bell, with Kobe Bryant being one of Bell’s strongest advocates. Bell is a “Three-and-D” guard who is best known for his physical brand of defense and his feud…

  17. Nobody is sure what Phil Jackson is going to do, not even his family

    Jun 22, 2010, 9:36 PM EST

    Here’s the best part — we’re all going to know what Phil Jackson wants to do by the end of the week. Come back to the Lakers or stay on his ranch in Montana. But nobody knows what he is going to do. Apparently not even his family, although they think he may be done,…

  18. Durant expects to get extension done

    Jun 22, 2010, 6:59 PM EST

    Kevin Durant can technically become a free agent after next season, but it looks like Durant wants to avoid all of that drama.  Durant is eligible to begin negotiating his first contract extension with the Thunder on July 1st. According to the Oklahoman’s Darnell Mayberry, Durant is fully expecting that the contract extension process will go smoothly: …

  19. Eddy Curry picks up player option, Knicks fans dream of a trade that won't happen.

    Jun 22, 2010, 6:45 PM EST

    Eddy Curry is now owed $11.2 million for next season — he picked up the player option. Like everyone sane knew he would, because where else is Curry going to make that money? Of course, a few Knicks fans didn’t see that coming.  Now twitter and sports talk radio airwaves are filled with Knicks fans…

  20. Report: Bucks trade Gadzuric, Bell for Warriors' Maggette

    Jun 22, 2010, 6:15 PM EST

    Charles F. Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel is reporting that the Bucks and Warriors have agreed to a trade that will send Corey Maggette to the Bucks in exchange for Dan Gadzuric and Charlie Bell.  This trade makes sense for both teams, albeit in different ways. For the Warriors, this was a cost-cutting move; Maggette…
