  1. Pistons won’t amnesty Charlie Villanueva

    Jul 11, 2013, 6:36 PM EDT

    Charlie Villanueva

    The Pistons already made their big move – signing Josh Smith – and their small moves (signing Chauncey Billups and Luigi Datome and re-signing Will Bynum). They might still have a little cap room left to make another small signing, but they’re already over the roster limit including their draft picks, so adding the caliber…

  2. Report: Nets to sign Andrei Kirilenko to two-year contract starting at $3.18 million

    Jul 11, 2013, 6:33 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kirilenko looks to pass the ball as he falls to the fall in front of teammate Williams and Brooklyn Nets guard Johnson in the first quarter of their NBA basketball game in New York

    The rich get richer. Or the rich get poorer, depending on your perspective. The Nets, already set to pay an unprecedentedly large luxury tax, will add another player who adds to the bill. Peter Vecsey of the New York Post: This just in: Nets have signed. Kirilenko for mini mid-level, 3.1M per — Peter Vecsey…

  3. Andre Drummond shows why he was best player at Orlando Summer League (VIDEO)

    Jul 11, 2013, 6:12 PM EDT

    Andre Drummond

    Detroit’s Andre Drummond was the best player at the Orlando Summer League. Celtics fans, I hear you about the good week Kelly Olynyk had (we’ve written about it) but Drummond was simply more dominant. And I mean dominant in a “I know I can be a star at the NBA level” kind of way, not the “I…

  4. Report: Hawks not thinking Ellis/Jennings, deciding whether to match Teague offer

    Jul 11, 2013, 4:24 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    The second that Jeff Teague signed a four-year, $32 million offer sheet with Milwaukee Bucks — something that was agreed to last night but may not have been formally signed until this morning according to some reports — he could no longer be signed and traded. Which means the days of discussions between the Hawks…

  5. Report: Lamar Odom being investigated in paparazzo incident

    Jul 11, 2013, 3:48 PM EDT

    Lamar Odom

    The paparazzi are part of life for celebrities in Los Angeles. You can’t hide from them, particularly if you are 6’10” and married to Khloe Kardashian. Lamar Odom should be very used to it by now after his time in Los Angeles. Now Odom is being investigated as part of an incident with a paparazzo…

  6. Report: Ronny Turiaf could be headed to Minnesota, too.

    Jul 11, 2013, 3:11 PM EDT

    Ronny Turiaf,  Matt Barnes

    Does it seem to anyone else like Minnesota is signing every available free agent the last 48 hours? Veteran big man Ronny Turiaf could be part of that mix, reports Marc Stein at ESPN. He says the Timberwolves are the “clear frontrunner” to sign Turiaf, certainly for the league minimum. In his eight NBA seasons…

  7. Rudy Gobert can dunk, sore foot or not (VIDEO)

    Jul 11, 2013, 2:33 PM EDT

    2013 NBA Draft

    The Utah Jazz did not acquire Rudy Gobert on draft day because of his offense. The Frenchman is 7’1″ with a 7’9″wingspan — he alters and blocks just about every shot in the paint when he is out there. He’s raw, he needs to add some muscle. But he does have a 9’7″ standing reach…

  8. Andrew Bynum has gained weight, not touched a ball in some time

    Jul 11, 2013, 2:08 PM EDT

    Andrew Bynum

    Let’s put it kindly — there is great skepticism around the league that Andrew Bynum can or will contribute much as an NBA player this season or ever again in the future. Yes, his knees that have been a chronic problem and kept him out all of last season. More than that, however, are questions about…

  9. Woodson confirms Stoudemire to have minutes limit

    Jul 11, 2013, 1:31 PM EDT

    New York Knicks' Amar'e Stoudemire dunks during their NBA basketball game against the Cleveland Cavaliers in Cleveland

    The New York Knicks will have Amar’e Stoudemire back next season… but kind of as a part time guy. The minute limit that Stoudemire was on at the end of last season to keep his knees healthy after coming back from surgery will continue into the next season, Knicks coach Mike Woodson said to the…

  10. Could Heat use amnesty on Joel Anthony or Mike Miller?

    Jul 11, 2013, 12:18 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    The Miami Heat payroll for next season is set at about $87.3 million, a number that could move a little but not much (the Heat are not expected to use their taxpayer’s mid-level exception). The Heat likely will have the second or third highest payroll in the league. Under the old luxury tax rules, the…

  11. Kobe basically shrugs at Howard going to Houston (VIDEO)

    Jul 11, 2013, 11:14 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    In the video above, Kobe Bryant said that he was happy for Dwight Howard making the decision that’s best for him, even if that is going to Houston. But the overall tone of Kobe’s comments Wednesday were a shrug. Kobe has moved on. Kobe’s attitude was essentially “he’s not one of us anymore, so I’m…

  12. Luke Ridnour traded from Timberwolves to Bucks

    Jul 11, 2013, 10:30 AM EDT

    Ridnour_Wolves

    We don’t know who the starting point guard in Milwaukee will be next season — Jeff Teague just signed a four-year, $32 million offer sheet that the Hawks can match; plus the Bucks still have the rights to Brandon Jennings (a restricted free agent). However, we know who the backup point guard will be. Luke…

  13. Ed Davis won’t play Summer League for Grizzlies because he was asked to ‘by a coach who doesn’t have a job’

    Jul 11, 2013, 9:43 AM EDT

    Lionel Hollins, Ed Davis

    Go ahead and file this under comedy more than anything else, and be thankful that we have a medium like Twitter where athletes can jump in and publicly provide immediate feedback to any discussion involving them personally. Ed Davis came to Memphis last season in the trade that sent Rudy Gay to Toronto, but had…

  14. Report: Dwight Howard left Lakers in part because Kobe would not pass torch

    Jul 11, 2013, 8:43 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard

    Honestly, there are a lot of reasons Dwight Howard chose Houston over Los Angeles. Mike D’Antoni’s offense and how Howard fits in it is certainly part of it. That D’Antoni was hired when Howard had repeatedly told management he wanted Phil Jackson was part of it. Howard felt he wasn’t listened to. He felt his…

  15. Report: Chauncey Billups agrees to two-year deal to return to the Pistons

    Jul 11, 2013, 8:36 AM EDT

Sports: Chauncey Billups has reached agreement on a two-year contract to return to the Detroit Pistons, league sources told Yahoo! Sports. The deal will be worth $5…

  16. Jason Williams makes an elbow pass in game in China (VIDEO)

    Jul 11, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    DeJuan Blair, George Hill, Jason Williams

    White Chocolate has still got it. Jason Williams is part of the USA Legends Tour making its way through China right now, and by all accounts he is putting on a show. Including pulling out his classic elbow pass to delight the Chinese crowds. He did this last year on the same tour. That’s cool, I…

  17. Report: Jeff Teague signs four-year, $32 million offer sheet with Bucks

    Jul 11, 2013, 12:46 AM EDT

    Jeff Teague

    The Bucks, led by their new coach Larry Drew (who just happened to be the coach in Atlanta last year), had been going hard at Jeff Teague, the Hawks’ restricted free agent point guard. They got their man according to Adrian Wojnarowski and Marc Spears of Yahoo Sports. Atlanta Hawks restricted free-agent guard Jeff Teague…

  18. Bobcats exploring Gerald Henderson sign-and-trades

    Jul 11, 2013, 12:41 AM EDT

    Gerald Henderson, Quincy Pondexter

    Bobcats wing Gerald Henderson has steadily improved, both offensively and defensively, since entering the NBA four years ago. Last season, he became a viable 3-point shooter – making 33 percent of his 1.5 attempts beyond the arc per game, both career highs – and that should boost his stock as a free agent in a…

  19. Kobe Bryant says don’t assume he wants to take a pay cut to help Lakers next summer

    Jul 10, 2013, 11:15 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    Actually, yes he will. This is just a negotiating stance. Follow along for some background on what we’re talking about: Every Laker player on the roster this season comes off the books at the end of next season . That includes Kobe Bryant and his league-high $30 million salary this season. His contract ends, Kobe…

  20. Kendall Marshall looking to prove he belongs during Summer League with Suns

    Jul 10, 2013, 10:26 PM EDT

    Kendall Marshall

    PHOENIX — Kendall Marshall was selected by the Suns with the 13th overall pick in last summer’s draft, but a chance to take the reigns as the team’s starting point guard has been far from guaranteed due to a combination of his need to develop, along with the constant personnel additions the team has made…
