    Jul 28, 2013, 1:16 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v New York Knicks

    The Rockets have made another free agent big man acquisition, and while it’s not as big of a deal as the one involving Dwight Howard earlier this summer, it may be an important one to the team’s ultimate chances nonetheless. Marcus Camby is expected to sign with Houston today, according to a report from Marc…

  2. Pistons might keep Chauncey Billups around after this season… in the front office

    Jul 28, 2013, 12:29 PM EDT

    Chauncey Billups, Joe Dumars

    When the Detroit Pistons brought back Chauncey Billups on a two-year contract — $2.5 million a year with a team option on the second year — there were questions about the move in some corners. But in the short term for a growing team, I like it. Billups doesn’t bring a whole lot on the…

  3. Tracy McGrady says he may return to play in China

    File photo of Tracy McGrady of the Qingdao DoubleStar Eagles driving the ball to the basket next to a U.S. All-Star team player during their basketball match in Qingdao

    Tracy McGrady was on the playoff roster of the San Antonio Spurs as they made their run to the NBA Finals, but understandably, he wasn’t able to contribute all that much. McGrady’s skill set has diminished far below the electric level it once reached, and he’s no longer capable of registering meaningful minutes against the…

  4. Doc Rivers says Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett have plenty left to give to the Nets

    Jul 28, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett

    When the Celtics pulled the plug on their championship aspirations by trading Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett to the Nets, it wasn’t because those two Hall of Fame players were completely finished. Salary considerations — along with the reality that even if the core stars were kept together in Boston for one more season, it…

    Jul 28, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Nike Basketball

    Plenty of NBA stars head overseas during the offseason, in order to expand the game globally, as well as to help sell some sneakers.

  6. J.R. Smith has been paid out half of the three-year, $17 million-dollar contract he just signed

    Jul 27, 2013, 11:00 PM EDT

    John Starks, J.R. Smith

    The rules of the NBA’s collective bargaining agreement are fascinating to a certain segment of NBA fans, so with that in mind, we bring you this financial quirk involving J.R. Smith. The reigning Sixth Man of the Year signed a three-year deal worth just under $18 million to remain with the Knicks a few weeks…

  7. Paul George says he, Danny Granger can play together just fine

    Jul 27, 2013, 9:29 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Indiana Pacers - Game One

    When word came down Saturday that the trade bringing Luis Scola to the Pacers had gone final I tweeted that I really liked the Pacers lineup — they had maybe the best starting five in the NBA last year, they will now add Danny Granger to that and bring Lance Stephenson, C.J. Watson, Scola and…

  8. Report: Knicks, Grizzlies have interest in Delonte West

    Jul 27, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    delonte

    Delonte West had a fairly productive eight seasons in the NBA in terms of his on-court contributions, but personal issues which stemmed from his battle with a bipolar disorder often made him more trouble than he was worth from a personality standpoint in the locker room. That was the reason the Mavericks parted ways with…

  9. Report: Chris Paul leaning toward playing in the 2016 Olympics

    London Olympics Basketball Men

    The reason that USA Basketball held a four-day mini-camp in Las Vegas last week that featured 28 current and rising NBA stars (and a couple from the college ranks) is due to the fact that there’s plenty of uncertainty as to who will return to the team to compete in the 2016 Olympic Games. Program…

  10. Heat, other teams show interest in Mo Williams

    Jul 27, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

    Mo Williams

    When talking at Summer League, people around the associated seemed surprised that Mo Williams was still on the board as a free agent. Williams isn’t elite but he is a solid veteran — 12.9 points and 6.2 assists a game last season, plus he shot 38 percent from three. The most likely landing spot for…

    Jul 27, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    Andrew Goudelock

    There were a few guys who shined during Summer League who ended up getting contracts to play in the NBA next season — Ian Clark and Elias Harris are among the names that immediately come to mind. Andrew Goudelock, who played off and on with the Lakers the past two seasons and managed to pick…

    USA Basketball Men's National Team Blue And White Game

    The FIBA World Cup – the basketball World Championships coming to Spain next summer — don’t play as big in the United States as the Olympics. It can get overlooked… unless Team USA loses, then newspaper columnists who hadn’t given the thing a sideways glance will pontificate on how this is some kind of disaster.…

  15. Report: Bucks closing in on signing Gary Neal

    Jul 27, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    gary neal

    When the Spurs pulled the qualifying offer they had out to Gary Neal, it made him an unrestricted free agent. He wasn’t expected to stay on the market for very long, and now it appears as though he could be scooped up as soon as today. From Marc Stein of ESPN.com: Hearing: Bucks closing in…

  16. Greg Oden might choose a rebuilding team for his comeback where there would be ‘less pressure’

    We’re expected to learn of Greg Oden’s free agent decision as early as next week, and even though the general public has no idea if he can still play basketball at the NBA level, there are six teams reportedly interested in signing him up to see what he’s got. Miami, New Orleans, Sacramento, San Antonio,…

  17. Lakers sign Elias Harris to a two-year contract

    Jul 27, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Wichita State v Gonzaga

    The Lakers had Elias Harris on their Summer League roster, an undrafted rookie out of Gonzaga who showed flashes of potential on both ends of the floor. Needing to round out the roster with some minimum salary players, the team decided that what Harris brings to the table was enough to earn him a partially…

  18. Report: Bulls, Rockets now front-runners for Camby (Heat not so much)

    Jul 27, 2013, 12:30 AM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v New York Knicks

    Marcus Camby is an unrestricted free agent, thank you very much Raptors. And big men who can protect the rim have real value around the league, so it is no shock the guy traded to then set free by Toronto has other suitors. Nothing has come together yet, but the Bulls and Rockets are the…

  19. Report: Gerald Henderson, Bobcats near three-year deal

    Jul 26, 2013, 10:57 PM EDT

    Gerald Henderson, Quincy Pondexter

    It was a little surprising that Gerald Henderson was still on the market this late into free agency — he showed he could score (15.5 points a game last season), he’s athletic and he’s efficient. He would make a good utility guard for a number of teams. Yet the Bobcats’ restricted free agent was finding…

  20. Report: Lakers not all that sold on Lamar Odom

    Jul 26, 2013, 8:59 PM EDT

    Lamar Odom

    For a while it seemed likely that the Lamar Odom would find his way back to Los Angeles with either the Clippers or Lakers. The Clippers have seemed to move on — they have Blake Griffin, Jared Dudley, Matt Barnes, Byron Mullens and Ryan Hollins who can play the forward spot. Interest there appears dead.…
