  1. New Sixers CEO apologizes for Andrew Bynum debacle, preaches patience

    Jul 26, 2013, 1:02 PM EDT

    Scott O'Neil

    It was a gamble, but I still contend at the time the Philadelphia 76ers made a good one — they had a chance to get Andrew Bynum fresh off a season where he played in 60 of 66 games (it was the lockout year), averaged 18.7 points and 11.8 rebounds a game, and shot 55.8…

  2. Report: Nuggets reach three-year deal to keep Timofey Mozgov

    Jul 26, 2013, 12:27 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Denver Nuggets - Game Two

    Denver found its backup center — a guy already on their bench. The Nuggets have reached a three-year, $14 million contract extension with Russian center Timofey Mozgov, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. The third year is a team option. Mozgov played a very limited role for the Nuggets last season as the third center…

  3. Top 5 plays from Team USA Blue vs White scrimmage (VIDEO)

    Jul 26, 2013, 11:36 AM EDT

    Kyrie Irving

    There was about as much defense played in this game as there was at Summer League in Las Vegas a few days before (which is to say, almost none, it was a scrimmage), but that does lead to some good news for fans out of the Team USA  Blue vs White scrimmage: Great play highlights. Here…

  4. Report: Kings, DeMarcus Cousins to start talking contract extension

    Jul 26, 2013, 11:16 AM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    How big an extension would you give DeMarcus Cousins? If you are paying on potential, he’s a max player no doubt. And if the Kings don’t give him the max this summer another team almost certainly will next summer when he is a restricted free agent. Then the Kings will match it and all that…

  5. DeJuan Blair still trying to find landing spot in free agency

    Jul 26, 2013, 10:42 AM EDT

    DeJuan Blair

    It appeared as if free agent DeJuan Blair was headed for the Washington Wizards — they liked him, he liked them. Those are good signs. But so far, no contract. He wants a multi-year deal (or a sign-and-trade with the Spurs so he can keep his Bird rights, but that’s not a likely outcome because…

  6. Pierce, Garnett return to Boston for preseason game. Well, if they play.

    Jul 26, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Newly acquired Net's NBA players attend a news conference introducing them to the media in Brooklyn

    It’s going to just look strange — Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett playing in the TD Garden in Boston wearing Brooklyn Nets jerseys. It will happen twice during the regular season — but it could happen before that, during an Oct. 23 preseason game, reports CSNNE.com. Of course, this is preseason, so it is certainly…

  7. Harrison Barnes with a massive throw-down on Ryan Anderson at the USA Basketball showcase (VIDEO)

    Jul 26, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    USA Basketball

    LAS VEGAS — Kyrie Irving and Anthony Davis were the stars of the USA Basketball showcase on Thursday, but this dunk from Harrison Barnes might have been the night’s greatest highlight. Ryan Anderson was victimized here, and while Barnes finished with 18 points in just 13 minutes, 10 of those came in the fourth quarter…

  8. Metta World Peace says he plans to change his name again

    Jul 26, 2013, 1:57 AM EDT

    Metta World Peace poses for a photo during NBA media day for the Los Angeles Lakers basketball team in Los Angeles

    He’s had enough of World Peace, time to move on. I guess. Just before the season started in 2011 then Laker Ron Artest has his name legally changed to Metta World Peace. Now, before he starts his first season with the New York Knicks, he’s going to do another name change. To what? I have…

    USA Basketball Men's National Team Blue And White Game

    LAS VEGAS — The White team beat the Blue team 128-106 in the USA Basketball intra-squad showcase that put a bow on a four-day mini-camp held in Las Vegas this week, but the event was about anything but this game’s final score. The powers that be were looking for mostly intangibles from players in terms…

  10. Bucks waive big man Gustavo Ayon

    Jul 25, 2013, 11:06 PM EDT

    ayon bucks

    There was a time, not that long ago, when the Bucks were of the belief that they should retain big man Gustavo Ayon for next season. Back in June, they reportedly decided to pick up his $1.5 million option. A month later, however, before the contract was set to become fully guaranteed, the team has…

    USA Basketball is wrapping up its four-day mini-camp, and we’re getting some highlights to remember it by on its way out.

  13. Report: Grizzlies reach three-year deal with second-round pick Franklin

    Jul 25, 2013, 7:16 PM EDT

    Jamaal Franklin

    Jamaal Franklin was a great second round pick by the Grizzlies, maybe the best athlete in the draft and a first round talent they got at No. 41. The Grizzlies have locked him up with a three-year deal, reports Sam Amick of the USA Today. The deal is for basically the minimum (we don’t know…

  14. Nets’ Shengelia has knee surgery, could be out for chunk of season

    Jul 25, 2013, 6:15 PM EDT

    Tornike Shengelia, Paul Pierce

    Tornike Shengelia was not going to play a big role for the Nets this season — he played in just 19 games last season and didn’t exactly impress at Summer League in Orlando where he averaged 7.6 points a game on 35 percent shooting. But any he hope he had of contributing much likely just…

  15. Report: Unnamed NBA players linked to Biogenesis clinic scandal

    needle, syringe, drug

    The performance enhancing drug scandal tied to the Florida Biogenesis clinic that has embroiled baseball and led to the suspension of MVP Ryan Braun could touch the NBA. Porter Fischer, the whistleblower who came forward to give the Miami New Times boxes of information that blew up Biogenesis into a scandal, told ESPN’s investigative show…

  16. George Hill explains reason for backing out of USA Basketball mini-camp

    Jul 25, 2013, 5:01 PM EDT

    George Hill

    LAS VEGAS — George Hill was a late scratch for this week’s USA Basketball mini-camp in las Vegas, with the given reason at the time being listed only as a “scheduling conflict.” That didn’t seem to be a great excuse considering the late date (July 21) that the organization received word that Hill wouldn’t be…

    Ronnie Price

    As Orlando continues a rebuilding project which appears to be coming along ahead of schedule, the team has added a veteran presence to its locker room that should help with developing the youngsters into true professionals.

  18. Nuggets GM says Andre Miller will return next season

    Jul 25, 2013, 3:47 PM EDT

    Andre Miller, C.J. Watson

    Andre Miller appeared in all 82 regular season games for the Nuggets last year, and played well enough to where he was a key component in helping the team finish with 57 wins, good for third best in a loaded Western Conference. Miller performed almost too well, however, because George Karl felt the need to…

    Jonas Valanciunas

    We’ve been telling you for a couple weeks now that Jonas Valanciunas turned a lot of heads with his play at the Las Vegas Summer League. He got named the Vegas Summer League MVP for a reason. We we’re the only one who noticed. Raptors coach Dwane Casey did as well. He said told Ryan…
