  1. Clippers trade for Willie Green from Hawks

    Jul 30, 2012, 8:31 PM EST

    Raptors forward Anderson defends against  Hawks guard Green in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Atlanta

    If things go well for the Clippers, Willie Green will rarely see the court. They have Jamal Crawford to play the two guard spot and they hope Chauncey Billups will be healthy and eating up minutes soon. But, things rarely to plan and the Clippers want to be prepared, so they announced they have traded…

  2. Report: Sixers will not be trading Iguodala this summer

    Jul 30, 2012, 6:59 PM EST

    Andre Iguodala

    For a guy who is an All-Star and Olympian, Andre Iguodala’s name sure shows up in trade rumors a lot. And there are plenty of people in Philadelphia more than happy to ship him out of town, for reasons I frankly don’t totally understand. It’s not happening, anyway. At least not in the near future.…

  3. Warriors reach deal with Carl Landry; close with Rush

    Jul 30, 2012, 6:52 PM EST

    Brandon Rush, Arron Afflalo

    UPDATE 6:52 pm: The Warriors have reached a deal with Carl Landry for two years at $8 million, tweets Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo. The second year of that is a player’s option. 5:07 pm: Golden State is close to rounding out their roster and they are doing it in an impressive manner. The Warriors are…

  4. Report: Nate Robinson set to sign with Chicago Bulls

    NBA Finals Game 2:  Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    Looks like the Bulls may be picking up another point guard and some scoring off the bench with the inconsistent energy of Nate Robinson. That according to Sam Amick of Sports Illustrated, who spoke to Robinson’s agent and tweeted this (on Sulia): the agent for Nate Robinson, Aaron Goodwin, says the veteran point guard will…

  5. Washington can’t like this: Nene still battling plantar fasciitis

    Jul 30, 2012, 5:42 PM EST

    Brazilian centre Nene Hilario (L) jumps

    Brazilian big man Nene missed a chunk of time after being traded to Washington last year because of plantar fasciitis — the foot injury that makes it painful to run. Which, it turns out, is a key part of playing basketball. The only cure for it is rest. Nene is playing in the Olympics for…

  6. Video: Rainn Wilson interviews Blake Griffin in his van

    Jul 30, 2012, 4:30 PM EST

    PBS Announces Hosts for Nine-Part PBS Arts Fall Festival, Kicking Off October 14

    I love that Blake Griffin is doing this kind of stuff (and working at Funny or Die during the lockout) now. Letting Dwight from the Office (otherwise known as Rainn Wilson) ask him questions like “why were you afraid to go to the Olympics?” Great stuff here. Totally worth taking a break from watching Olympic…

  7. Nicolas Batum thinks a few teams could beat Team USA

    Jul 30, 2012, 4:17 PM EST

    US forward LeBron James (L) challenges F

    It’s not going to happen this week. Tunisia and Nigeria are no threat to the United States, and while they have some talent Lithuania really isn’t either. But next week against Argentina then moving into the medal round play things are going to get serious for Team USA. They need to start playing better because…

  8. Video: USA vs. France game highlights replayed by LEGOs

    Jul 30, 2012, 2:38 PM EST

    French centre Ronny Turiaf (L) challenge

    In case you didn’t get to see the USA start slow then come on to thump France in the Olympics opener for both teams on Sunday, we’ve got you covered. Kind of. From the Guardian in the UK itself, we have a recreation of the highlights, but using LEGOs. Thing is, I kind of like…

  9. Preview: USA enters the easy week of the schedule vs. Tunisia

    Jul 30, 2012, 2:23 PM EST

    Tunisia's Makram Ben Romdhane (R) drives

    Anthony Davis is the Team USA human victory cigar. When you see him getting serious minutes, the game is in hand. Expect to see a whole lot of Davis this week. After a nice win over France to open the Olympics, Team USA enters the softer part of their schedule this week, starting with Tunisia on…

  10. LeBron James wants Kevin Durant to shoot the rock more

    Jul 30, 2012, 1:34 PM EST

    London Olympics Basketball Men

    Kevin Durant led Team USA with 22 points against France on Sunday, and you can look for that trend to continue. He is the best pure shooter and scorer on Team USA (frankly, the best in the world), his role on this team is to score. And LeBron James wants him doing more of it.…

  11. Deron Williams calls international basketball “slippery”

    Jul 30, 2012, 12:50 PM EST

    Olympics Day 2 - Basketball

    A lot of things are different in International basketball — the closer three-point line, the types of zone defenses, the overall style of play. And the balls and the rims, if you ask Team USA players. Which the Star Ledger did to Deron Williams (via SLAM). “If you hit any part of the rim, it’s…

  12. Ginobili has a plan for dealing with Parker’s new goggles

    Jul 30, 2012, 12:24 PM EST

    Manu Ginobili, Renaldas Seibutis

    There’s a big game in Group A tomorrow — Argentina vs. France. The USA should win Group A, so the winner of this game has a real leg up on second place in the group (especially after Argentina beat Lithuania on Sunday). But Argentina vs. France is something else as well — Manu Ginobili vs.…

  13. Tony Parker admits he is “totally out of shape” for Olympics

    French guard Tony Parker catches the bal

    When you have a shard of glass in your eye that needs to be surgically removed and can cost you your vision if it shifts, you have a really good reason to take some time off from working out. Which is what Tony Parker has done since getting hit with a bottle during the Drake/Chris…

  14. Report: Undrafted Maalik Wayns signs deal with 76ers

    Jul 30, 2012, 10:59 AM EST

    Big East Basketball Tournament - Villanova v Rutgers

    For a guy who grew up in Philadelphia then played his college ball at Villanova, signing with the 76ers would be a dream come true. That’s what the undrafted Maalik Wayns has done, according to the Times Herald. A source confirmed Saturday that Wayns has agreed to a free-agent deal with the 76ers. The deal…

  15. Kobe says Team USA should be paid, but they would play anyway

    Jul 30, 2012, 10:31 AM EST

    Olympics Day 2 - Basketball

    Dwyane Wade created a firestorm a few months back when he dared agree with Ray Allen that the USA Basketball players should be paid for their time at the Olympics representing the USA. Wade backtracked soon after, because you can’t win that PR battle. Not when you march into Opening Ceremonies next to a wrestler…

  16. Report: Josh Howard close to making free agent decision

    Jul 30, 2012, 8:44 AM EST

    Jazz forward Howard tries to get position on Spurs forward Leonard during their NBA basketball game in San Antonio, Texas

    Josh Howard isn’t quite the same guy who was such a force in Dallas a few years back. Injuries have slowed him, including knee surgery last season, although he says he is all the way back. Either way, coming off the bench (and at a reasonable price) he still has value for a team. And…

  17. Quote of the day: Kirilenko is a Wolf who thinks he’s a young buck

    Jul 30, 2012, 8:02 AM EST

    Russian forward Andrey Kirilenko scores

    “I feel great. Look at me. I’m running like a young deer.”  Andrei Kirilenko of Russia, after dropping 35 points on 17 shots in the first day of Olympic basketball to lead his team to a win. Timberwolves fans should be happy, they just signed Kirilenko and Russian point guard Alexey Shved who had 16…

  18. Report: Milwaukee in lead to sign Joel Przybilla

    Jul 30, 2012, 1:01 AM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Houston Rockets, Game 6

    It’s largely reached the “team are filling out the end of their roster” portion of the summer. So the big questions left (and we’re going to ignore that Dwight question now) are ones like “where will Joel Przybilla play next season?” And the answer may be Milwaukee. That according to a report in the Journal-Times.…

  19. Olympics Day 1 roundup: Argentina picks up key victory

    Jul 30, 2012, 12:02 AM EST

    Argentinian guard Emanuel Ginobili (2dR)

    We’ve broken down the USA win over France a few ways now, but there were five other games in the Olympics on Sunday. And we know you didn’t watch all of them because you were entranced by beach volleyball. We get that. To help you out, here is a recap of the rest of the…

  20. Video: LeBron’s insane 50-foot, thread-the-needle bounce pass

    Jul 29, 2012, 6:00 PM EST

    Olympics Day 2 - Basketball

    It was just the first quarter of the third game of the first day of the London Olympics, and I feel safe saying you are not going to see a better pass than this. Tyson Chandler rebounds the miss, makes a quick pass out to LeBron, who is the only person on earth who could…
