  1. Chris Kaman agrees to Lakers contract

    Jul 8, 2013, 4:59 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Bryant shoots over Dallas Mavericks Kaman during their NBA game in Dallas

    The Lakers, by definition, were going to downgrade their center position, because they just lost the NBA’s best center. The only question was how big the downgrade would be. In comparison to Dwight Howard, it’s pretty big. Marc Stein of ESPN: Lakers and Chris Kaman, I've told, have agreed to terms on one-year deal —…

  2. Report: Clippers speaking to veteran Antawn Jamison

    Jul 8, 2013, 4:49 PM EDT

    Antawn Jamison

    Antawn Jamison was frustrated last season with the way he was used — and often not used — in the Lakers constantly-changing rotations. But the 37-year-old also showed he could still shoot the rock — 36 percent from three, 46 percent overall. He can contribute to a team in a limited role. And that team…

  3. Report: Mavericks hesitant to unload Shawn Marion’s salary

    Jul 8, 2013, 4:21 PM EDT

    Hornets Mavericks Basketball

    In a story about the Mavericks’ chase for Andrew Bynum (do you have to run that fast to catch him?), Eddie Sefko at the Dallas Morning News threw out an interesting little nugget: There are several other teams that have more cap space now than the Mavericks, who are very hesitant to jettison Shawn Marion…

  4. Report: Pistons will hire Rasheed Wallace as assistant coach

    Jul 8, 2013, 3:54 PM EDT

    New York Knicks'  Wallace jokes around on the bench in the first quarter of their NBA basketball game against the Milwaukee Bucks at Madison Square Garden in New York

    Rasheed Wallace’s temper distracted from the rest of his game. Few saw his advanced post moves, perfect defensive positioning (Game 5 of the 2005 Finals aside) and deft passing. Rather, most just focused on the technical fouls – though, to be fair, there were a lot of technical fouls. But Pistons general manager Joe Dumars…

  6. Sixers make change of CEO’s official, bring in Scott O’Neil

    Jul 8, 2013, 2:23 PM EDT

    Adam Aron had been a very public face of the Sixers as CEO, with a presence on twitter where he even called out the team after an ugly loss. He said the Andrew Bynum trade should have worked. He tried to be a face for the fans. And now he’s out. The franchise made official…

  7. Kevin McHale on Rockets: “We can play with anybody”

    Jul 8, 2013, 1:23 PM EDT

    Kevin Mchale

    Kevin McHale should feel pretty confident right now. He’s the coach of the team that just added Dwight Howard, pairing him with James Harden — instantly a very dangerous pick-and-roll combo and potentially the best duo in the NBA. Add in some solid role players around them (starting with Chandler Parsons) and you have a potential…

  8. Report: Omer Asik asks for trade but Rockets have no such plans

    Jul 8, 2013, 12:12 PM EDT

    Omer Asik

    Omer Asik might have been one of the losers in the Dwight Howard acquisition — he went from being the Rockets starting center (10.1 points, 11.7 rebounds a game) and defensive anchor to maybe their power forward or a big off the bench who is not going to get the same minutes or many touches…

  9. Reports: Lakers having conversations to bring back Lamar Odom

    Lamar Odom and Pau Gasol back on the front lines for the Lakers? It’s not going to be the same as 2010, but there are talks going on according to a couple reports. That starts with this from Mike Bresnahan at the Los Angeles Times. They are intrigued at the chance of getting Lamar Odom…

  10. Report: Brandon Jennings for Jeff Teague? It’s one scenario being discussed.

    Jul 8, 2013, 10:39 AM EDT

    Brandon Jennings

    The most likely scenario out there has Monta Ellis landing in Atlanta next season; they are the clear and away frontrunners for his services. Ellis with the ball, Kyle Korver as the sharpshooter on the wing, Paul Millsap and Al Horford on the front line… that’s a solid playoff team in the East (albeit one…

  11. Jason Kidd gets technical in first game as coach… in Summer League (VIDEO)

    Jul 8, 2013, 9:15 AM EDT

    NBA Draft Basketball

    It’s not that easy to get a technical in Summer League, it’s a much more chill than the NBA season. Scores and standings are kept and there is in theory a championship to be won, but all that really matters is to find out who maybe can and who definitely cannot play in the NBA.…

  12. Who’s been the most successful player after leaving the Lakers?

    Jul 8, 2013, 9:03 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard Shaquille O'Neal

    When Shaquille O’Neal signed with the Lakers, Jerry West took him to the Staples Center Forum and showed him the retired jerseys hanging from the rafters – including those of Wilt Chamberlain, Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Elgin Baylor and West himself. Great players tend to find there way onto the Lakers, not out of Los…

    Denver Nuggets guard Andre Iguodala drives past Utah Jazz guard Randy Foye during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Salt Lake City, Utah

    The Warriors will sign Andre Iguodala to a four-year, $48 million contract. Golden State will also trade Richard Jefferson, Andris Biedrins, Brandon Rush and draft picks to the Jazz for Kevin Murphy. That much we know. Utah guard Randy Foye, a free agent, might go to the Nuggets on a three-year, $9 million contract (with…

  14. Report: Cavaliers, Mavericks leading contenders for Andrew Bynum

    Jul 8, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    76ers Bynum Basketball

    The question was never “would teams be interested in Andrew Bynum?” Two years ago when healthy he was in the “best center in the game” conversation. Guys like him do not come around often. The question was always “what kind of contract would he get?” We may find out soon, with the interest in him…

  15. Report: Bucks reach deal to bring in Carlos Delfino

    Jul 8, 2013, 12:55 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Houston Rockets - Game Three

    How does an O.J. Mayo, Carlos Delfino backcourt sound, Milwaukee? It is possible Brandon Jennings is in that mix as well (that situation is unresolved) but the two guys above are in for the Bucks. Delfino is the latest, having reached a deal with Milwaukee on Sunday night, as first reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of…

  16. Victor Oladipo plays well in Summer League debut with the Magic (VIDEO)

    Jul 8, 2013, 12:30 AM EDT

    Victor Oladipo

    Victor Oladipo was the second overall pick in this year’s draft, and looked every bit the part during his Summer League debut for the Magic. Oladipo spent most of his time playing the point guard position as promised, and looked comfortable there initiating the offense. While he made a few poor decisions with his passes,…

    Monica Wright

    You knew if Kevin Durant was going to get married, that woman was going to have to love basketball. Monica Wright, a guard with the WNBA’s Minnesota Lynx, confirmed to the Star Tribune Sunday night after a game that she and Durant are engaged. Gossip Web site had the news first.

    Los Angeles Clippers Introduce Chris Paul

    Teams began entering into agreements with free agent players shortly after midnight Eastern on July 1, but due to a league-imposed moratorium on activity, no deals can be officially signed until July 10. We’re almost there, and plenty of the top names available have indeed been swooped up by teams looking to make a splash…

  19. Report: Lakers, Chris Kaman express mutual interest

    Jul 7, 2013, 9:30 PM EDT

    Chris Kaman

    The Lakers have seen Dwight Howard and Earl Clark both leave in free agency, which means they’re in need of some reliable big man help to fill out their roster for next season. It appears that veteran seven-footer Chris Kaman may be an option. From Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports: As Dwight Howard leaves Los Angeles,…

  20. Report: J.J. Hickson reaches three-year deal to join Nuggets

    Jul 7, 2013, 7:59 PM EDT

    J.J. Hickson

    J.J. Hickson had a breakout year in Portland last season finally starting to deliver on long-seen promise — he averaged 12.9 points a game on 56.7 percent shooting, 10 rebounds a game and had a PER of 19.9. However he didn’t fit with the Blazers — Hickson is a four, the Blazers already have one…
