  1. Wizards’ coach, GM on different pages; Washington has reported interest in DeJuan Blair

    Jul 13, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    Johan Petro, DeJuan Blair

    Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld and Washington coach Randy Wittman both met with the media Thursday, but separately. That second part is key. As noticed by Michael Lee of The Washington Post, Grunfeld and Wittman gave differing opinion on the state of Wizards’ roster. Grunfeld: “I think we feel good about the team,” Grunfeld said at…

  2. Report: Kemba Walker pitched Bobcats on, recruited Al Jefferson

    Jul 13, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Charlotte Bobcats

    In 2011-12, the Bobcats could have won 12 more games – in a 66-game schedule, no less – without sacrificing any lottery positioning. The Magic out-tanked Charlotte last season, but both those teams were so far below the rest of the NBA, the Bobcats still could have won a couple more games without relinquishing any…

  3. Mike D’Antoni agrees with Kobe in not wanting Metta World Peace amnestied

    Metta World Peace, Mike D'Antoni

    Kobe Bryant has already gone on record saying he didn’t want the Lakers to amnesty Metta World Peace. In that sentiment, at least, Kobe and Mike D’Antoni are on the same page. Marc Berman of the New York Post: Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni said today the decision to amnesty Metta World Peace was purely financial…

  4. Royce White making 100 flights in a season? ‘Hell no,’ he says

    Jul 13, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Rockets White Basketball

    The Rockets knew what they were getting when they drafted Royce White, and even more so, the 76ers knew what they were getting when they traded for him. White is, I think, a talented player, but I can’t say that with much certainty, because he’s never played in the NBA. His anxiety issues, which include…

  5. Report: Raptors to sign Dwight Buycks as No. 2 point guard

    Jul 13, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    BASKETBALL-FRA-LNB-2013

    I don’t know much about Dwight Buycks, but here’s one thing I do know about the guard who’s spent two seasons since leaving Marquette without an NBA job: He played for the Thunder in the Orlando summer league last week, and he planned to play for the Heat in the Las Vegas summer league this…

  6. Jrue Holiday-Nerlens Noel trade now official

    Jul 13, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Toney Douglas, Jrue Holiday

    Congratulations, Jrue Holiday. Fresh off marrying U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team member Lauren Cheney (now Lauren Holiday) – and the subsequent honeymoon that delayed his trade from becoming official – Jrue Holiday is now a husband and Pelican. The trade, which sends Nerlens Noel and a future first-round pick to the 76ers, hinged on Holiday…

  7. Riley says Heat have no plans to use amnesty clause

    Jul 13, 2013, 1:41 AM EDT

    Pat Riley

    As of right now, the Miami Heat have a payroll just above $87 million — that is $28 million over the salary cap and $15.6 million over the luxury tax line. Which will mean about $30 million in taxes on top of the existing salary load — a $117 million bill total. Maybe the Nets…

  8. Report: Metta World Peace’s top preference is Clippers… or China. Or football.

    Jul 12, 2013, 11:12 PM EDT

    Metta World Peace

    China. Arena Football. Coaching. Or the Clippers. Sometimes talking to Metta World Peace feels like talking to a 15-year-old who sees the world as full of possibilities and who doesn’t take any of it too seriously. He’s matured over the past few years, but you still see some of this in him. That came out…

    The Mavericks and Devin Harris had agreed upon a three-year deal in the neighborhood of $9 million that would return the guard to the team that traded him away in the deal that brought Jason Kidd to Dallas back in 2008. An injury that Harris is dealing with that will now require surgery, however, has…

    LAS VEGAS — Austin Rivers hasn’t played in an NBA basketball game since March 4, after suffering a broken hand injury that ended his season.

    Jul 12, 2013, 6:46 PM EDT

    Anthony Bennett

    LAS VEGAS — The Cavaliers selected Anthony Bennett with the number one overall pick in this year’s draft, and Summer League is usually our first chance to get a look at the most recent lottery picks in an NBA setting. Bennett, who played his college ball at UNLV, won’t be participating, however, due to still…

  13. Report: Sixers to interview Celtics assistant Jay Larranaga for head coaching position

    Jul 12, 2013, 5:40 PM EDT

    jay larranaga

    The Sixers are the lone NBA team without a head coach at this relatively late stage of the offseason, considering that the draft has already taken place and Summer League is currently underway. They may be looking for a fix to that situation with a younger candidate on the rise. From Dei Lynam of CSNPhilly.com:…

  14. Report: Jazz want to resurrect Utah summer league

    Jul 12, 2013, 4:53 PM EDT

    B.J. Young, Rudy Gobert, Jeremy Evans

    At one point, there were three NBA summer leagues – Las Vegas, Orlando and Salt Lake City. But the Utah version – called the Rocky Mountain Revue – last occurred in 2008, when the Jazz officials who ran the league needed to invite a D-League team and the Iranian national team just to fill the…

  15. Andray Blatche doesn’t care about toll roads

    Jul 12, 2013, 4:38 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Brooklyn Nets - Game One

    Andray Blatche just completed the best per-minute season of his career. He was so good when the Nets put him on the court, he was arguably better in sum than any of the four seasons in which he played more minutes for the Wizards. Blatche shot fewer long 2s, hit the glass harder and protected…

  16. Report: Monta Ellis agrees to three-year, $30 million contract with Mavericks

    Jul 12, 2013, 3:48 PM EDT

    Monta Ellis, Dirk Nowitzki

    Update: Ellis and the Mavericks have reached an agreement, according to Marc Stein of ESPN. Maybe it was the agent, after all. Two days after firing his agent, Ellis might finally be on the verge of getting the big-money contract he’s desired. Stein: Monta Ellis and Mavericks closing in on a three-year deal that could…

  17. Report: NBA executives don’t trust Mikhail Prokhorov after Nets sign Andrei Kirilenko on cheap

    Jul 12, 2013, 3:00 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kirilenko blocks a shot by Brooklyn Nets forward Humphries in the first quarter of their NBA basketball game in New York

    Andrei Kirilenko opted out of a Timberwolves contract that would have paid him $10.2 million next season, and he accepted a contract with the Nets that starts at $3.18 million. Kirilenko is Russian, as is Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov. Apparently, NBA executives have connected those facts, and they’re mad, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo!…

  18. Nets, Celtics officially complete trade sending Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to Brooklyn

    Jul 12, 2013, 2:29 PM EDT

    Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce

    The Nets and Celtics have officially completed their blockbuster trade that sends Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to Brooklyn.

  19. Knicks interested in Tyrus Thomas

    Jul 12, 2013, 1:55 PM EDT

    Tyrus Thomas

    The Bobcats amnestied Tyrus Thomas, making the move official Wednesday. Any team with space to absorb his 2013-14 salary of $8,694,215 can claim him (not happening). If that doesn’t happen, any team with cap room can bid how much it wants to pay him the next two seasons (maybe happening). That process takes 48 hours,…

  20. Bobcats’ Mark Price working on Kidd-Gilchrist’s shot, Walker’s pick-and-roll

    Jul 12, 2013, 1:21 PM EDT

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

    Mark Price is one of those NBA players where the generation coming into the league now says, “What? Coach played 12 years in the league? Get out of here!” But Price did play a dozen years mostly because he was smart using the pick-and-roll, and because he had a sweet shooting stroke — a career…
