    Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard

    Just like the Rockets and the Mavericks, who have free agent meetings scheduled with Dwight Howard and will bring out their respective team’s best players, the Lakers are planning to do the same.

    Jun 30, 2013, 4:00 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Houston Rockets - Game Three

    Looking up and down the roster of the Houston Rockets, there are a lot of guys there with smaller deals or team options. That’s by design, of course, in order to maintain maximum financial flexibility with the hopes of landing a top-level free agent — like Dwight Howard, for example. The latest moves, announced by…

    Former Los Angeles Lakers head coach Jackson speaks during a ceremony to retire jersey #34 in honor of former Los Angeles Lakers player O'Neal during their NBA basketball game against the Dallas Mavericks in Los Angeles

    The Rockets are first in line to meet with Dwight Howard once free agency commences at midnight Eastern, but that doesn’t mean other teams aren’t going to let their wishes be known where Howard is concerned While no contact with free agents is allowed by teams until 12:01 a.m. on July 1, that doesn’t extend…

  6. Lakers fans, it looks like Mike D’Antoni isn’t going anywhere

    Jun 30, 2013, 12:59 PM EDT

    Mike D'Antoni, Dwight Howard

    Mike D’Antoni became the scapegoat for the decisions of Lakers management in the minds of a lot of Lakers fans last season. And maybe Dwight Howard’s mind (which is more of an issue). Five games into last season the Lakers fired Mike Brown and brought in a system coach in Mike D’Antoni to a roster…

    Jun 30, 2013, 10:01 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    As free agency in the NBA gets set to open at midnight Eastern, one of the top names has taken himself off the market — not that it comes as any surprise. Chris Paul will re-sign with the Clippers, according to a report from Chris Broussard of ESPN.com. Paul’s representatives have told teams “not to…

  9. LaMarcus Aldridge says he hasn’t demanded a trade from the Blazers

    Jun 30, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Dallas Mavericks

    When a report surfaced a few days ago that had LaMarcus Aldridge unhappy in Portland and potentially wanting out, the impending denial from Aldridge that was almost certainly on the way was completely expected. With no leverage to force a trade out of town, and with Aldridge being one of the team’s two cornerstones along…

  10. Jeremy Lin drops 45 points in a San Francisco Pro-Am game (VIDEO)

    Jun 30, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Houston Rockets

    Normally when a pro player hits the courts during the summer to play against a bunch of non-NBA guys, their exploits aren’t all that impressive. The level of competition matters, after all, and so ringing up big numbers should be the expected result in games where the defense is questionable, and the overall talent level is…

    Jun 29, 2013, 11:01 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 7

    Udonis Haslem has always been a key role player for the Miami Heat, and helped his team when called upon at various times during their run to a second straight NBA title. Haslem’s biggest contribution of the postseason came in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Pacers, when he finished 8-of-9 from…

    Jun 29, 2013, 9:30 PM EDT

    Mo Williams

    Mo Williams is an unrestricted free agent this summer, and he apparently won’t re-sign with the Jazz as a backup point guard — he wants to be the starter. That’s the word out of Williams’ camp, anyway, and if true, he may want to start engaging in some contract negotiations with other teams. From Marc…

  13. Rockets to get first free agent meeting with Dwight Howard

    Jun 29, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard speaks during a press conference at the Lakers practice facility in El Segundo, California

    Once the free agency period officially opens after midnight Eastern on July 1, the most coveted player on the market will be with one of the teams he is strongly considering signing a max contract with for the next four years. That meeting has been set, and the team that will get the first crack…

  14. Report: Raptors also talking to Clippers about Eric Bledsoe

    Jun 29, 2013, 6:32 PM EDT

    DeMar DeRozan

    Once Chris Paul formally signs on the dotted line, it will not be long before Eric Bledsoe is moved. While Doc Rivers may wonder what a CP3/Bledsoe backcourt looks like, there are other holes on this roster and Bledsoe is a key trade piece to fill one. We know the Clippers are talking to the…

  15. Bucks now intend to keep Brandon Jennings

    Jun 29, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Atlanta Hawks, Game 1

    It was only a couple of days ago that the Milwaukee Bucks were rumored to be open to the idea of trading Brandon Jennings. Not that teams would be lining up with offers, of course, considering that Jennings is a restricted free agent and they could just sign him to a larger offer sheet than…

    Jun 29, 2013, 5:00 PM EDT

    Nerlens Noel, Michael Carter-Williams, C.J. McCollum

    Here is one last look a back at the draft that was in the NBA. The big story of the night was actually the Nets/Celtics trade that sends Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett to Brooklyn, and Kay Adams and I talk about why I like that for the Nets. Also, I like what Philly did…

    Jun 29, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Seven

    A report surfaced on Saturday that the Celtics and Mavericks had engaged in trade talks for the one remaining All-Star asset in Boston, Rajon Rondo. It didn’t come from one of the usual suspects in terms of reporters we’re used to seeing break this kind of news, but a report from DallasBasketball.com is always credible.…

  18. Injury, risk reasons Nerlens Noel fell down draft board

    Jun 29, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    2013 NBA Draft

    When Nerlens Noel first went down with an ACL injury, the reaction of most scouts and league executives was he wouldn’t fall or if he did he wouldn’t fall that far in the draft. He was still a top three pick. But things started to feel different the last couple weeks. I can’t remember a…

  19. Andrei Kirilenko opts out, will be unrestricted free agent

    Jun 29, 2013, 12:28 PM EDT

    Manu Ginobili, Andrei Kirilenko, Derrick Williams

    The Minnesota Timberwolves expected this, and if they want Andrei Kirilenko back next season now they are going to have to pay more for it. Looking for some longer-term security, 32-year-old Kirilenko has opted out of the last year of his deal (worth $10.2 million) and will become an unrestricted free agent, reports Jerry Zgoda…

  20. Jeff Van Gundy still regrets quitting as Knicks head coach, says Doc Rivers didn’t quit on Celtics

    Jun 29, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Jeff Van Gundy
