  1. Josh Childress is still garnering NBA interest

    Jul 29, 2013, 3:52 PM EDT

    Josh Childress, Draymond Green

    Josh Childress certainly isn’t as highly regarded as he was when he decided to leave an offer on the table from the Atlanta Hawks and instead go overseas in the summer of 2008. That doesn’t mean the swingman isn’t still coveted by NBA teams, though, because he’s apparently narrowed his options down to three teams…

  2. Manu Ginobili admits he thought he might retire after season

    If the San Antonio Spurs had not decided to bring Manu Ginobili back, he might well be in Argentina right now trying to figure out what to do next with his life. He wanted to come back. Turns out the Spurs wanted him back. But after the devastating NBA Finals loss by the Spurs, he…

  3. Lakers make it official, hire Kurt Rambis as assistant coach

    Jul 29, 2013, 2:02 PM EDT

    Kurt Rambis

    Kurt Rambis and Mike D’Antoni together? Sure, why not. It’s not like Rambis just spent last season as an ESPN analyst questioning D’Antoni’s use of the Lakers roster every chance he got. (Okay, that’s exactly what he did.) I mean, what happened the last time D’Antoni was a coach somewhere and management demanded he bring…

  4. Celtics’ rookie Kelly Olynyk battling plantar fasciitis

    Jul 29, 2013, 1:26 PM EDT

    Kelly Olynyk

    Well, this is not ideal. Boston draft pick out of Gonzaga Kelly Olynyk looked good in the Orlando Summer League, like the Celtics may have a piece that can be part of their future as they rebuild. But then comes the note (via Eric Smith of Toronto and CelticsBlog) that Olynyk is not playing with…

  5. Isaiah Thomas shows off moves, drops 49 at Seattle pro-am

    Jul 29, 2013, 12:52 PM EDT

    Isaiah Thomas

    We already brought you some Jamal Crawford and Tyreke Evans highlights from the Seattle pro-am. So how about some more from Seattle native Isaiah Thomas. He dropped 49 in his game and put on a ball handling display that shows why the Kings have a good one-two punch at the point (with Greivis Vasquez). Hat tip…

  6. Rumor: Former Knicks executive Steve Mills likely new players union head

    Jul 29, 2013, 12:18 PM EDT

    mills

    When Stu Jackson stepped down as the VP and enforcement arm of the NBA, this rumor somehow got started around the Web (as often seems to happen): Jackson was going to take over as the head of the NBA players union. That doesn’t make much sense — you don’t take a guy from the enemy’s…

  7. Nate Robinson will wear No. 10 with Nuggets to honor Lionel Messi

    Jul 29, 2013, 11:34 AM EDT

    Norway Soccer Barcelona

    In case you needed a reminder that Barcelona’s goal scoring machine Lionel Messi is the most famous athlete in the world… Nate Robinson — not usually the name that first comes to mind when you think of when you say “NBA soccer fan” — will honor Messi by wearing his No. 10 in Denver. That’s…

  8. Once again, JaVale McGee throws it down at Drew League (VIDEO)

    Jul 29, 2013, 10:36 AM EDT

    JaVale McGee

    A few years ago when he got a USA Basketball tryout a number of players in the camp — we’re talking some of the best players America has produced — marveled out loud about JaVale McGee‘s athleticism. He amazed those guys. So what happens when you throw the Nuggets’ McGee and all those gifts in…

  9. New San Francisco home for Warriors could cost $1 billion

    Jul 29, 2013, 10:22 AM EDT

    Warriors San Francisco Arena

    It’s expensive to do waterfront development. That’s what the Warriors owners are proposing — a new arena on Piers 30 and 32 in San Francisco that would move the Warriors from Oakland back into the city. But that’s going to cost them. About $1 billion dollars, according to a KCBS report. You read that right,…

  10. Jamal Crawford hits game winning three at Seattle pro-am (VIDEO)

    Jul 29, 2013, 9:44 AM EDT

    Jamal Crawford

    The end of the Seattle pro-am this weekend came down to Jamal Crawford and Tyreke Evans trading shots. Good news for Pelicans fans — Tyreke Evans was knocking down some outside shots and looked pretty good. But that would be Crawford with your dramatic game winner. Hat tip to SLAM and Ball is Life. And…

  11. NBA post free agency Power Rankings: Who is closing in on Miami?

    Jul 29, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers' Paul and Griffin wait for play to resume as the Clippers trail the San Antonio Spurs during the second half of an NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    This summer saw Dwight Howard find a new home, the Clippers and Pacers add depth, and a few other teams making bold moves to get better (or, in some cases, worse intentionally). So how did all this impact the PBT Power Rankings? Glad you asked. Here is where things stand this summer (the number in…

  12. What Dwight Howard brings to Rockets (VIDEO)

    Jul 29, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Newly signed Houston Rockets player Dwight Howard during news conference in Houston

    The Rockets won the big prize of the off-season… so what exactly did they win. Coach Nick of BBallBreakdown does great work (like this video on Brandon Jennings) and he turned his lens toward Dwight Howard. He talks about things we have here — this move makes the Rockets much better defensively, he’s an upgrade…

  13. Heat scout Tim Hardaway says if Miami signs Greg Oden, they’ll win a third straight title

    Jul 29, 2013, 12:01 AM EDT

    Greg Oden

    It’s only July, but apparently it isn’t too early to make proclamations as to who might win next year’s NBA championship a little more than 11 months from now. Greg Oden was reported to be impressive in his recent workout in front of personnel representing five NBA teams, so much so that an employee of…

  14. Behind the scenes with Chauncey Billups during his return to the Pistons (VIDEO)

    Chauncey Billups, Joe Dumars

    Chauncey Billups returned to the Pistons in free agency, the team where he made a name for himself after winning a Finals MVP award back in 2004. Billups was traded away in the ill-fated deal that brought Allen Iverson to Detroit in 2009, but he’s back to finish his career in the place where he…

  15. Hawks claim Gustavo Ayon off waivers

    Jul 28, 2013, 9:00 PM EDT

    ayon bucks

    The Bucks waived Gustavo Ayon a few days ago for reasons unknown, but even a big man with the most basic of skill sets on not much more than a minimum salary deal won’t last on the open market for very long. Ayon didn’t end up hitting the open market, and was claimed off waivers by the…

  16. Kevin Durant hammers down dunk at Drew League (VIDEO)

    Jul 28, 2013, 7:30 PM EDT

    Kevin_Durant-174-186_20933

    If you don’t get a body between Kevin Durant and the rim, destruction like this happens. KD swung by the Drew League in Los Angeles on Saturday to play a little ball. The Drew League is one of the best pro-am leagues around the country, but defense is pretty much optional. Wasn’t much played, here,…

  17. It’s Manu Ginobili’s birthday, so here are some Manu Ginobili highlights

    Jul 28, 2013, 6:00 PM EDT

    Spurs' Ginobili goes to the basket past Miami's Wade during Game 5 of the NBA Finals in San Antonio

    It’s Sunday afternoon in late July, which is not exactly prime time in the NBA news cycle. But birthdays happen all year long — even daily, I’m told. And today, Manu Ginobili turned 36 years old, so we’ll celebrate (and kill some time) with a look at a few of his highlights. I was traveling…

  18. Report: Greg Oden looked lean, moved well in recent workout for teams

    Jul 28, 2013, 4:30 PM EDT

    greg_oden

    Today’s Greg Oden update takes us to his recent workout in Indianapolis, where five of the six teams interested in signing the free agent big man were all in attendance. The takeaways were that Oden looked good, both physically and from a basketball standpoint — which is why so many teams are weighing their current…

  19. Suns ‘optimistic’ that Channing Frye will be playing for them next season

    Jul 28, 2013, 2:59 PM EDT

    channing frye suns

    Channing Frye was diagnosed with an enlarged heart condition that kept him out of basketball entirely for all of last season. There was an extended period of time where Frye couldn’t even do any heavy cardio exercise just to stay in shape, and his return to the court was uncertain, at best. As the season…

  20. Report: Marcus Camby will sign with the Rockets

    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…
