  1. 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…

  2. Coach says development of Valanciunas, DeRozan to alter Raptor offense

    Jul 25, 2013, 2:56 PM EDT

    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…

  3. It’s official: Kyrie Irving is on the cover of NBA Live 14

    Jul 25, 2013, 2:09 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v New Jersey Nets

    Kyrie Irving, here is the sign that you have really arrived. We told you this was coming, but now it is official: Irving will be the guy on the cover of NBA Live 14, EA Sports announced Thursday. EA announced a couple of years back they were returning with the Live series, hoping to challenge…

  4. LeBron has a DJ in his China hotel room (not really)

    BASKET-NBA-FINALS-PRACTICE-HEAT

    Players are used to the finest hotel rooms… but their own personal 24/7 DJ in the room? Man, then I need to go to China. That’s where LeBron James is right now as part of a Nike-sponsored tour. He says he got a personal DJ 24/7 in his room. Top that Four Seasons! (Yes people,…

  5. Just renovated Madison Square Garden could be forced to move in a decade

    Jul 25, 2013, 1:25 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v New York Knicks

    The Madison Square Garden Company (MSG) is just completing a $968 million renovation the iconic Manhattan building that is home to the Knicks, the NHL’s Rangers and a wealth of other events. It is going to co-host the 2015 NBA All-Star Game (along with the Barclays Center in Brooklyn). It is one of the NBA’s…

  6. Mark Cuban has spirited defense of Calderon signing

    Jul 25, 2013, 12:51 PM EDT

    A+E Networks Hosts the NCTA Reception - Arrivals

    I liked the Jose Calderon signing by Dallas. They get a quality point guard — 11.6 points and 6.6 assists a game, plays smart, had a PER of 18.2 and shot 52 percent from three last year — for a reasonable price (four years, $29 million). Remember last season with the failed Darren Collison experiment…

  7. NBA is picking up part of Derek Fisher’s salary

    Jul 25, 2013, 12:01 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Dallas Mavericks - Game Three

    We can list the reasons the Oklahoma City Thunder picked up Derek Fisher on a one-year deal: veteran leadership in the locker room, he shot 35.1 percent from three last season, they needed a shooter of some kind after losing out on Mike Miller, and they had a shortage of guys with shaved heads on…

  8. Andrew Bynum makes backhanded dig at Lakers fans

    Jul 25, 2013, 11:34 AM EDT

    Andrew Bynum

    Andrew Bynum was introduced as the newest Cavalier and said all the right things — if he is right and Kyrie Irving is right that is a dangerous team. I think we all expect Irving to be right and an All-Star; with Bynum everybody is wait-and-see. At his introduction Bynum stuck to the company line…

  9. Linas Kleiza headed to Turkey for next season

    Jul 25, 2013, 10:48 AM EDT

    Linas Kleiza

    After the Toronto Raptors amnestied Linas Kleiza this summer, he said it was likely he would play in Europe next season. That has come to pass. The news first came from Uğur Türker of EuroBasket (and has since been confirmed by Marc Spears of Yahoo Sports). Breaking News: Fenerbahce Ulker and Linas Kleiza agreed in…

  10. New Pelican Jrue Holiday finds name funny; thinks team can be competitive

    Jul 25, 2013, 10:16 AM EDT

    Toney Douglas, Jrue Holiday

    In New Orleans, the switch of the team name from Hornets to Pelicans largely went over well — it’s something local, not something imported and forced on them. Outside New Orleans, there are a lot of people shaking their heads. Until recently, Jrue Holiday was outside New Orleans. He was traded from the Philadelphia 76ers…

  11. Report: Mavericks sign second-round pick Ledo to guaranteed deal

    Jul 25, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Ricky Ledo

    A number of second round picks from the last draft are going to get contracts, but the vast majority of those are make good deals — none (or very little) of the contract is guaranteed. You have to make the roster to get paid. Ricky Ledo of the Dallas Mavericks is the exception. He has…

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    The first showdown between Dwight Howard and his new friends on the Rockets and his old team the Lakers may happen before Kobe Bryant returns from Achilles surgery. The Lakers will face the Rockets first on Nov. 7 in Houston, something first reported by Adrian Wojnarowski at Yahoo Sports and confirmed by Kevin Ding of…

  14. Reports: John Wall, Wizards near five year, $80 million deal

    Jul 25, 2013, 12:01 AM EDT

    John Wall

    Would you give John Wall more than Stephen Curry got a couple years ago? More than Rajon Rondo? It’s certainly a risk, but the Wizards have their reasons and it looks like it is going to happen. The Wizards and Wall are close to a five-year, $80 million deal, something first reported by Marc Stein…

  15. Report: Heat to open 2013-14 season against the Bulls, face Lakers on the road Christmas Day

    Jul 24, 2013, 10:22 PM EDT

    d rose lebron

    The regular season schedule for the 2013-14 NBA season is expected to be released in its entirety next week, but since preliminary versions get sent out to the league’s broadcast partners in advance, we always seem to get word of some of the marquee matchups before everything is finalized. This year is no different, as…

  16. Thunder bringing back Derek Fisher on a one-year contract

    Jul 24, 2013, 9:26 PM EDT

    Derek Fisher, Eric Bledsoe

    The Thunder will be bringing back Derek Fisher for a third straight season, after signing him to a one-year contract for the veteran’s minimum salary on Wednesday. “Derek has proven to be a valuable member of our team and we are excited to have him back,” Thunder GM Sam Presti said, via the official release.…

  17. Report: LeBron will not play for USA in 2014, could well skip 2016 Olympics

    Jul 24, 2013, 8:34 PM EDT

    London Olympics Basketball Men

    When Kevin Love and particularly Kevin Durant said they would come back to play for Team USA at the 2014 World Cup (FIBA’s World Championship, but they want to steal the soccer name now) it was a real coup. Durant could blow off the trip to Spain next summer for the World Cup and still…

  18. Report: Mike Miller agrees to play for Memphis Grizzlies

    Jul 24, 2013, 6:39 PM EDT

    Heat shooting Mike Miller celebrates after scoring against the Spurs in the second half during their NBA basketball game in Miami

    Memphis needs outside shooting to space the floor, it was painfully obvious during the playoffs (and spare me your Rudy Gay stuff, go look at his jump shooting numbers then move on). Mike Miller was good enough to space the floor for the Miami Heat the last couple years and picked up a couple rings…

  19. Summer League stars Ian Clark, Josh Akognon get deals

    Jul 24, 2013, 6:13 PM EDT

    Warriors Suns Basketball

    Play well in the Summer League and you get noticed, and that can get you a contract — maybe not a guaranteed NBA contract, you have to earn you way onto the roster, but you get a shot. That’s what happened for Ian Clark and Josh Akognon Wednesday, both landed deals with NBA teams. Clark…

    LAS VEGAS — There were two surprise visitors in the gym for the third day of USA Basketball mini-camp on Wednesday, and as it turned out, they were there to make a formal announcement. “This is a big day and a big announcement for USA Basketball,” program Chairman Jerry Colangelo said. “Because two of our…
