  1. Report: Pistons want to trade for Rajon Rondo, Rudy Gay

    Jul 2, 2013, 7:07 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Boston Celtics

    The Pistons have two of the NBA’s most promising big men, Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe, and they’ve cleared more than $20 million in cap space this summer. They’re definitely in position to make a jump to the playoffs, which is what general manager Joe Dumars probably needs in the final season of his contract,…

  2. Three team trade sends Redick to Clippers, Bledsoe to Suns, picks to Bucks

    Jul 2, 2013, 6:25 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Milwaukee Bucks - Game Three

    The Clippers needed a few things to become serious title contenders in the West. One was a more consistent defense, Doc Rivers has to help handle that (and mature DeAndre Jordan’s game). They also needed a two guard and wings who could stretch the floor — you can check that off the list. This is…

  3. Bulls to waive Richard Hamilton

    Jul 2, 2013, 6:07 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls shooting guard Hamilton questions a call against the Charlotte Bobcats during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Charlotte

    For the second time in three years, an NBA team is paying Richard Hamilton to go away. The Pistons’ cap obligation to pay Hamilton a $14.5 million buyout over the last two seasons just ended, but now the Bulls will pay Hamilton $1 million not to play for them next season.

  4. Report: Chase Budinger reaches three-year deal to return to Minnesota

    Jul 2, 2013, 5:51 PM EDT

    Chase Budinger, Taj Gibson

    Chase Budinger is the kind of explosive wing player that the Timberwolves need, it’s just that last season he was injured for much of the campaign (knee surgery, he played just 23 games). Just like the rest of the roster. But the value is still there and the Timberwolves realized it. That’s why the two…

  5. Dennis Rodman says he should be considered for the Nobel Peace Prize

    Jul 2, 2013, 5:10 PM EDT

    Retired U.S. NBA basketball player Rodman is welcomed by Son, Vice Chairman of North Korea's Olympic Committe, as he arrives in Pyongyang

    Nelson Mandela. The Dalai Lama. Mikhail Gorbachev. Lech Walesa. Archbishop Desmond Tutu. Mother Teresa, Martin Luther King Jr. And…. Dennis Rodman? Well, “the worm” thinks he belongs on that list. All those other people have won the Nobel Peace Prize and Rodman feels his February trip to hang out with Kim Jong-un puts him on…

  6. Report: Spurs, Tiago Splitter near four year, $36 million deal

    Jul 2, 2013, 4:26 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v San Antonio Spurs - Game 5

    Tiago Splitter is coming off his best season in the NBA. He took on a larger role in San Antonio — he was a starter on a team that went to the seventh game of the NBA Finals, he was the real anchor of their defense, he averaged 10.3 points a game on 56 percent…

  7. Pacers yank Tyler Hansbrough’s qualifying offer

    Jul 2, 2013, 4:18 PM EDT

    Tyler Hansbrough

    Tyler Hansbrough might have waited too long, or maybe he’ll just be free to get a larger offer. The Pacers extended Hansbrough a $4,135,391 qualifying offer in June, so Hansbrough had the option for the last couple days of accepting a one-year, $4,135,391 contract with Indiana. In return, the Pacers had the right to match…

  8. Dwight Howard, John Wall speak Chinese (VIDEO)

    Jul 2, 2013, 3:41 PM EDT

    dwight john wall

    In a promotional spot for an upcoming trip to China this summer, Dwight Howard and John Wall have a totally realistic conversation with Yi Jianlian in Chinese. It’s all fun and games, of course, until Wall (as pointed out by Kelly Dwyer over at Yahoo!’s Ball Don’t Lie) tries to claim that he’s never been out…

  9. Wizards re-sign Martell Webster to four-year, $22 million contract

    Jul 2, 2013, 2:52 PM EDT

    Martell Webster

    The Wizards drafted small forward Otto Porter, but incumbent starting small forward Martell Webster remained the top priority in free agency. That’s because Webster, who signed a one-year contract with Washington last summer, shot a career-best 42.2 percent on 3-pointers and helped the Wizards go from 28th in 3-point percentage to 10th. For a team…

  10. Kevin Durant tells fans to chill, him signing with Jay-Z doesn’t mean he bolts OKC

    Jul 2, 2013, 2:35 PM EDT

    Kevin_Durant

    Kevin Durant is a big star playing in a small market — that always makes small market fans a little edgy. The list of players forcing their way out of small markets to bigger ones is a tradition that dates back to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in Milwaukee, or probably earlier. So when Durant switched agents to…

  11. Knicks pursuing Francisco Garcia and Matt Barnes

    Jul 2, 2013, 2:25 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony, Francisco Garcia

    The Knicks need another small forward. Chris Copeland is a free agent and could join the Pacers soon. Steve Novak was included in the original Andrea Bargnani trade, and Quentin Richardson was added to the revised version. James White was nearly waived during the season, and he’s probably headed to China. Iman Shumpert might play…

    The Golden State Warriors were the test team last season for new, sleeved NBA jerseys designed to be more marketable to the average fan. As many as five teams will be wearing the new-look tops next season, and we’ll even see some versions of them in July’s upcoming Summer League. Scott Agness of Pacers.com has…

  13. Report: Knicks expected to make contract offer for Elton Brand

    Jul 2, 2013, 2:10 PM EDT

    Mavericks forward Brand moves towards the basket as he is defended by Clippers forward Barnes during their NBA game in Dallas

    The Knicks can’t offer a lot of money, but they can offer a potentially bigger role on the team. The Knicks have spoken to Elton Brand and are expected to make him a contract offer, tweets Jared Zwerling of ESPNNewYork.com. The mutual interest was confirmed by Howard Beck at the New York Times, although he…

  14. Jose Calderon meeting with Kings, one of many suitors

    Jul 2, 2013, 1:44 PM EDT

    Looks more like football as Toronto Raptors' Calderon races Sacramento Kings' Robinson up the court in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Toronto

    When the Pistons traded for Jose Calderon and his expiring contract, they immediately stressed they didn’t view him as a one-year rental. After years of subpar point guard play since they traded Chauncey Billups, Calderon brought playmaking skills to the position Brandon Knight and Rodney Stuckey couldn’t come close to matching. But Calderon and Andre…

  15. Report: Pacers finalizing deal to retain David West

    Jul 2, 2013, 1:09 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game One

    While other teams tried to get their foot in the door, it was always expected that David West would return to the Indiana Pacers. He was their top off-season priority. It looks like the two sides have almost got a deal done — a three-year deal with the third year being a team option, reports…

  16. Report: Spurs ‘seriously interested’ in Andrei Kirilenko

    Jul 2, 2013, 1:08 PM EDT

    Manu Ginobili, Andrei Kirilenko, Derrick Williams

    The Spurs have two key free agents: Manu Ginobili and Tiago Splitter. Ginobili will likely re-sign at a remarkably reduced cost than the $14 million he made last season, but Splitter will have other suitors bidding for him. Though Splitter is a restricted free agent, the Spurs have the flexibility to let him walk if…

  17. Clippers to meet with O.J. Mayo, Carl Landry on Tuesday

    Jul 2, 2013, 1:00 PM EDT

    O.J. Mayo, Patrick Patterson

    The Clippers re-signing of Chris Paul to a max contract in free agency this summer was only the beginning of their plans to add talent and tweak the roster so that it’s more immediately ready to compete for a championship under new head coach Doc Rivers. The decision of whether or not to trade reserve…

  18. Kobe Bryant says he wants to play another three years

    Jul 2, 2013, 12:25 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Lakers

    Before Kobe Bryant went down with his Achilles tendon injury, he sounded like a guy who wanted to play another year, maybe two, then hang them up. He dropped all kinds of hints about that. Now he is changing his tune. Kobe sat down for an interview with Mike Trudell of Lakers.com and talked about…

  19. Bulls, Nazr Mohammed reach one-year deal for his return

    Jul 2, 2013, 11:47 AM EDT

    APTOPIX Heat Bulls Basketball

    Nazr Mohammed provided the Bulls 11 minutes of solid defense in the paint per game last year, a few buckets here and there, and one famous shove of LeBron James in the playoffs. That was enough to earn him a new deal. The Bulls and Mohammed have agreed to a one-year, veteran minimum deal. That…
