  1. Reports: Pelicans to offer Tyreke Evans $40 million–$44 million

    Jul 1, 2013, 5:16 PM EDT

    Kings Hornets Basketball

    Tyreke Evans, a restricted free agent, can’t sign an offer sheet until July 10. But he can agree to terms on one, and though it wouldn’t be binding, it’s an extreme breach of protocol to renege at that point. So, Evans and teams can negotiate in good faith right now. Once Evans signs an offer…

  2. Celtics GM Danny Ainge: “We are not tanking”

    Jul 1, 2013, 4:50 PM EDT

    Danny Ainge

    Define tanking. How you choose to do that will determine if you think the Boston Celtics are tanking. They certainly are rebuilding after they shipped out Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to Brooklyn for a package of three first round picks, the talented young MarShon Brooks, and the anchor contracts of Kris Humphries (one year,…

  3. Report: Thunder aggressively pursuing Dorell Wright

    Jul 1, 2013, 4:41 PM EDT

    Dorell Wright, Mike Dunleavy, Monta Ellis

    Signing James Harden to a long-term extension proved too costly to the Thunder, so they traded him for Kevin Martin. Now Martin is a free agent, and he might be too expensive, too. So, once again, Oklahoma City is ready to downgrade. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports: Oklahoma City has begun an aggressive pursuit of…

  4. C.J. Watson headed to the Indiana Pacers. That’s a good get.

    Jul 1, 2013, 4:27 PM EDT

    C.J. Watson

    Reports had circulated that C.J. Watson, who spent last season backing up Deron Williams in Brooklyn, was negotiating with the Indiana Pacers. Then came this tweet Monday from Watson. Keep up with the pace!!!! 👀👌✔ — C.J. Watson (@Quietstorm_32) July 1, 2013 Nothing is official until ink stains the paper on July 10 (the first…

  5. Report: Dwight Howard asked Rockets about adding another max player

    Jul 1, 2013, 3:12 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    The Houston Rockets just moved heaven and earth and Thomas Robinson to have room so they could sit down with Dwight Howard and offer him a four-year, $87 million max deal. So what did Howard ask them? How they could add another max guy. That according to the Houston Chronicle. Rockets general manager Daryl Morey…

  6. Report: Andre Iguodala to meet with six teams

    Jul 1, 2013, 2:43 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Denver Nuggets

    When teams say they are going to Los Angeles to meet with players, it doesn’t automatically mean Dwight Howard. A number of other players are there and if you want to meet them that’s the place to be. For one, that’s where Andre Iguodala is. And a number of teams are going to meet with…

  7. Report: Lakers interested in Byron Mullens

    Jul 1, 2013, 2:39 PM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Los Angeles Lakers

    Byron Mullens, after barely leaving the bench in his first two seasons with the Thunder, quietly became an alright-looking player with the Bobcats. I say alright-looking, because he scored 14.9 and 14.2 points per 36 minutes in his two seasons with the Bobcats. But he took a lot of long 2s, didn’t shoot them that…

  8. Report: Bucks, Suns, Pistons may try to poach J.R. Smith from Knicks

    Jul 1, 2013, 1:27 PM EDT

    John Starks, J.R. Smith

    The Knicks remain the odds-on favorite to retain their second scoring option and Sixth Man of the Year, J.R. Smith. But there is a limit to how much they can offer him. The Knicks have Smith’s Early Bird rights (and are over the tax line), so they can only offer a deal for 175 percent…

  9. Marcus Camby not pleased to be traded to Raptors

    Jul 1, 2013, 12:42 PM EDT

    New York Knicks center Camby walks off the court after their NBA basketball game against the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City

    When he signed with the Knicks last year, Marcus Camby said, “Hopefully I can end my career in New York with a championship.” He didn’t say “Hopefully I can spend one year in New York and then continue retracing my career backward by getting traded to the rebuilding Raptors.” So, predictably, Camby wasn’t exactly thrilled…

  10. Chris Paul confirms he’s “all in” with Clippers

    Jul 1, 2013, 12:27 PM EDT

    Chris Paul

    I'M IN!!! #CLIPPERNATION — Chris Paul (@CP3) July 1, 2013 He’s made it official. Well, technically Chris Paul can’t put ink to paper until July 10, but we all knew he was going to stay with the Clippers and he tweeted this out Monday morning to confirm it. This will be a five-year, $107 million…

  11. Rockets say meeting with Dwight Howard went well

    Jul 1, 2013, 12:09 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    There are going to be a series of these reports in the coming days — no team is going to come out of its free agent meetings with Dwight Howard and say, “well, that sucked.” But the Rockets went into the first meeting with free agent Dwight Howard feeling confident and they put on quite…

  12. Brandan Wright poised to get substantially bigger contract

    Jul 1, 2013, 11:41 AM EDT

    Bradnon Wright

    Just 14 players have ranked in the top 25 for PER in each of the last two seasons: LeBron James, Chris Paul, Dwyane Wade, Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin, Russell Westbrook, Al Jefferson, LaMarcus Aldridge, Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Kobe Bryant, Brandan Wright, Kyrie Irving and Stephen Curry. The 13 highest-paid members of that group, even…

  13. Report: Knicks have interest in Monta Ellis for some reason

    Jul 1, 2013, 11:31 AM EDT

    Monta Ellis

    Because what the Knicks really need is another volume shooter. What they lack is a guy who needs the ball in his hands and shoots a low percentage on the shots he creates, and then is disinterested on defense. Nonetheless the Knicks have interest in Monta Ellis, according to Ken Berger of CBSSports.com. The good…

  14. Report: Greg Oden draws interest from Heat, Spurs, Cavaliers, Celtics, Mavericks, Kings, Pacers and Grizzlies

    Jul 1, 2013, 10:56 AM EDT

    Greg Oden

    When are teams interested in signing someone who hasn’t played in four years? When it’s Greg Oden, who posted 16.7 points, 12.8 rebounds and 3.4 blocks per 36 minutes when he last played in 2009. Even though it’s such an extreme long shot he even approaches that level of production agagin, Oden, the former No.…

  15. Report: Mavericks agree to terms with Israeli guard Mekel; talk to Calderon, Williams

    Jul 1, 2013, 10:35 AM EDT

    Gal Mekel

    The Dallas Mavericks need a point guard, especially since they are letting Darren Collison walk. Well, they’ve agreed to terms with one guy who can be their backup and reached out to Mo Williams and Jose Calderon to likely be the starter. We know that Israeli based Gal Mekel has agreed to terms on a…

  16. Mavericks allow Darren Collison to become unrestricted free agent

    Jul 1, 2013, 9:45 AM EDT

    Darren Collison

    Darren Collison might have played himself out of a contract offer from the Mavericks. Collison – by averaging 41 starts or 2,000 minutes in the last two seasons of his rookie-scale contract (he actually did both) – increased his qualifying offer from $3,342,175 to $4,531,459, and the Mavericks declined to extend that higher offer by…

  17. Report: Warriors put David Lee on trade block

    Jul 1, 2013, 9:15 AM EDT

    David Lee

    The 2013 NBA playoffs were filled with many incredible moments: Ray Allen’s 3-pointer to send Game 6 of the NBA Finals to overtime, LeBron James making a game-winning layup with Roy Hibbert on the bench, Nate Robinson carrying the Bulls to a triple-overtime win and many more. One moment that might have appeared to deserve…

  18. Andrew Bynum won’t work out for teams as a free agent

    Jul 1, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers introduce Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson

    Andrew Bynum didn’t play a single game for the Sixers last year, due to knee injuries that kept him from basketball for the entire season. Bynum is now an unrestricted free agent, but the likelihood of Philadelphia coming through with the dollars it will take to sign him is minimal, at best. The team’s new…

  19. Report: Kyle Korver to Nets ‘in the bag’

    Jul 1, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Brooklyn Nets

    The Nets were a below-average 3-point shooting team last season, and their 3-point percentage plummeted to a lowly 31.6 percent a first-round loss to the Bulls. Paul Pierce should help, but Brooklyn could use even more outside shooting. Not only would it add points from a very efficient area, it would help space the floor.…

  20. One dozen NBA free agents to watch (not named Howard or Paul)

    Jul 1, 2013, 3:51 AM EDT

    Josh Smith

    Chris Paul is going to stay a Clipper. Dwight Howard is going to do whatever it is Dwight Howard is going to do. But those two are not the only guys who became free agents at the stroke of midnight and we ventured into Monday. Here are a dozen other newly minted free agents worth…
