  1. Report: Bulls considering moving Joakim Noah or Luol Deng for pick and cap exception

    Jun 23, 2012, 9:44 PM EST

    Carlos Boozer, Luol Deng

    The Bulls are in a lot of trade conversations, which is kind of weird. The team was the No.1 overall seed in the playoffs despite Rose having missed all that time, and Rose was the number one, no questions asked, absolute reason the Bulls fell to the Sixers. Why would they mess with what’s working…

  2. Three guys who could be the surprise second best player in this draft

    Jun 23, 2012, 6:12 PM EST

    Uconn's Drummond fights for the ball as Syracuse's C.J. Fair and Fab Melo defend during their game at the 2012 Big East men's NCAA college basketball tournament at Madison Square Garden in New York

    Make no mistake, this is the Anthony Davis draft. He is the franchise player, the guy who can be a top 10 player in the league, the guy you build a contender around, the guy people pay to see. The Hornets have literally won the lottery. After that there is a consensus of guys going…

  3. Warriors’ latest small forward star target: Luol Deng

    Jun 23, 2012, 4:00 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls' Deng goes to the basket against the Miami Heat during second half of their NBA basketball game in Chicago

    Andre Iguodala. Danny Granger. Rudy Gay. The Warriors have been chasing a small forward for weeks trying to get a hold on an All-Star upgrade at that position. You can recognize what they’re going for. Stephen Curry runs the show. The star small forward anchors the perimeter defense, Andrew Bogut handles the defensive load down…

  4. The Wizards and a future of risk

    Jun 23, 2012, 2:00 PM EST

    Wizards uniform, logo

    You know what I’d be angling for, were I an NBA GM? A boat. Because those guys make a lot of money and I want a boat. I’d also be angling for the Washington Wizards’ 2014 and 2015 first rounders. Getting future firsts is difficult in the NBA. NBA front offices take a lot of…

  5. Report: Hornets will match any offer for Eric Gordon

    Jun 23, 2012, 12:00 PM EST

    New Orleans Hornets v Phoenix Suns

    One of the ways people found to discredit the Hornets’ trade of Chris Paul to the Clippers (as opposed to trading him to the Lakers for three old guys, one of whom is a space cadet) was the question of Eric Gordon‘s free agency. Either he wasn’t good enough as a return trade piece, or…

  6. Thunder will probably re-sign Scott Brooks… but if not, JVG and Phil are on the list

    Jun 23, 2012, 10:00 AM EST

    Scott Brooks

    You know, for a guy who just won his conference, Scott Brooks can’t really get much respect. OK, he gets a lot of respect. But probably not as much as he deserves. Brooks is of course without a contract extension, a free agent after June 30th, despite having just navigated a team so young it…

  7. NBA finals: Television ratings, clearing out my reporter’s notebook

    Miami Heat's James celebrates near the end of Game 5 of the NBA basketball finals against the Oklahoma City Thunder in Miami

    I had a ton of notes I took at points in Miami during the NBA finals and all of it didn’t get into posts. So I’m closing out my notebook with bullet points to put a little bow on the NBA finals. • People like to watch stars. LeBron James and Kevin Durant, the Heat…

  8. Report: League’s salary cap, luxury tax will remain unchanged

    Jun 23, 2012, 12:51 AM EST

    LeBron James (L) of the Miami Heat and R

    This is not really a surprise — while per-game attendance was good and television ratings were up this season (although ratings don’t immediately translate to revenue) it was expected not to really impact the cap in a shortened season. Teams have been operating under the assumption that next year’s salary cap would be about the…

  9. Dwyane Wade admits he may miss Olympics to rehab knee

    Jun 22, 2012, 10:13 PM EST

    Dwyane Wade Team USA Olympics

    It was evident to anyone watching that Dwyane Wade was not himself throughout the playoffs and in the finals against the Thunder. One of the most explosive finishers in the game almost missed dunks at points because he didn’t have the elevation. He admitted to the Associated Press Friday that he may need to skip…

    I present this without comment because… I don’t know what to say. It’s Baron Davis. At his most Baron Davisness. And it’s a good way to start the weekend. I guess.

  11. Jeremy Lin’s new agent looking to Asia for endorsements

    Jun 22, 2012, 6:45 PM EST

    BBVA Rising Stars Challenge

    Here is a little trove from the rumor mill: When “Linsanity” was in full bloom and companies from all over the globe were reaching out to him looking for deals, it was a disorganized mess. Nobody seemed to be in charge. Jeremy Lin has a new agent and marketing man — Jim Tanner — just…

  12. Warriors interested in bringing in Brandon Roy

    Dallas Mavericks v Portland Trail Blazers - Game Four

    Brandon Roy wants to return to the NBA. Golden State wants him. The Warriors GM confirmed that to Matt Steinmetz of CSNBayArea.com. Warriors general manager Bob Myers said on Friday morning that the team has interest in former Portland Trail Blazers guard Brandon Roy, who has made it clear that he will try to play…

  13. Does a ring change the perception of LeBron James?

    Jun 22, 2012, 5:14 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat - Game Five

    There is something different about LeBron James today — he is an NBA champion. He has a chip. Nobody can ever take that away from him. But s that really going to change how people feel about him? “In the information age, reputations are made and broken down more cheaply than they used to be,”…

  14. Video: NBA micro-movie Game 5 — Thunder vs. Heat

    Jun 22, 2012, 4:04 PM EST

    The Miami Heat celebrate their victory i

    Thunder fans, you may want to avert your eyes. This wasn’t a pretty ending to your season. But it was a real coronation of the Miami Heat as champions that turned into a rout and a 12-minute fourth quarter party leading up to the win. Miami could do no wrong — LeBron James recorded a…

  15. Jeremy Lin, union wins “Bird rights” arbitration, which is good for Knicks

    Jun 22, 2012, 3:45 PM EST

    Injured New York Knicks guard Jeremy Lin reacts during pregame ceremonies before the Knicks play against the Miami Heat in Game 2 of their first round NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoffs in Miami

    The New York Knicks offseason just got brighter. In an unexpected decision, an arbitrator ruled for Jeremy Lin, Steve Novak — backed by the NBA players union — saying that players picked up on waivers (like Lin and Novak were) can be re-signed by their team using their “Bird rights” (the rights of a team…

  16. It wasn’t just LeBron. Dwyane Wade had to grow up, too.

    Jun 22, 2012, 3:11 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat - Game Five

    MIAMI — This wasn’t Dwyane Wade’s first time posing with the Larry O’Brien trophy. Six years ago, a young, brash, fearless and athletic player was an unstoppable force for four games, the Dallas Mavericks had no answer for his attacks to the rim, and it was he that pushed and pulled the Miami Heat to the…

  17. Report: Kendrick Perkins played with partially torn groin throughout the playoffs

    Jun 22, 2012, 2:01 PM EST

    Kendrick Perkins

    We know that once players reach the Finals, no one is playing at 100 percent. But while some are merely trying to get through what Shaquille O’Neal used to refer to as “knick-knack injuries,” others are dealing with things much more serious. Kendrick Perkins falls into the latter category, as reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of…

  18. Which teams could crash the Thunder/Heat finals next year?

    Jun 22, 2012, 1:47 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat - Game Five

    These finals didn’t feel like a one-time thing. One year from now the Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder could well be back on the NBA’s biggest stage. This is a budding rivalry. Between LeBron James and Kevin Durant. Between the flashy East Coast city and the solid Midwestern city. Miami’s stars are in their…

  19. Heat, Thunder favored by oddsmakers to return to the Finals

    Jun 22, 2012, 1:01 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game One

    The season hasn’t even been over for 24 hours yet, but you can already get some action down on who will win the 2013 NBA title. And not surprisingly, at this ridiculously early stage, the Heat and the Thunder are equal 5-2 favorites to win the championship next season. The Bulls are next in line…

  20. Celtics decision to rebuild or reload hinges on Kevin Garnett

    Celtics' Pierce, Garnett and Allen sit on the bench during their loss to the Heat during Game 6 of their Eastern Conference Finals NBA basketball playoffs in Boston

    The good news for Celtics fans is that all the talk of this season’s playoff run being the last for the Big Three of Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, and Kevin Garnett may have been a bit premature. The bad news might be that the club’s decision to go into a complete rebuild or to try…
