    Jul 1, 2012, 12:29 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Charlotte Bobcats

    Jul 1, 2012, 11:26 AM EDT

    Roy Hibbert

    True NBA big men are hard to find. And the simple economic theory of supply and demand applies. Roy Hibbert is a 25-year-old All-Star true NBA center who averaged 12.8 points and 8.8 rebounds a game, but showed his real value in the playoffs when his length really bothered Dwyane Wade and LeBron James on…

    Jul 1, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Steve Nash

    It sounds like Steve Nash is done in Phoenix. With Deron Williams just flipping a coin between Dallas and Brooklyn, this may make Nash the most interesting free agent to watch this July. Does he chase a ring and head to Miami (they are reportedly going to make an offer)? Does he sign with his…

    Jun 30, 2012, 8:00 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    The Pacers want a wing that can shoot. And when you say “NBA wings that shoot,” pretty much three of the first names I think of are Brandon Roy, O.J. Mayo, and Jamal Crawford. Granted, it would have to be 2009 when you ask me, but still, those names are there. The Indianapolis Star reports:…

    Jun 30, 2012, 3:59 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    This is about as much of a surprise as Tom Cruise burning through another marriage.

    Image (1) scola-thumb-275x203-14834.jpg for post 2836

    It’s not a fire sale. But it does feel like a clearance sale. Rockets GM Daryl Morey is clearly looking to make some big moves and shake up the Rockets roster. He brought in three picks in the top 20 from the NBA Draft — and tried to do a lot more — and now…
