  1. Owners expected to vote on several rule changes Thursday

    Jul 19, 2012, 6:20 PM EST

    NBA-referees-

    David Stern tried to streamline — or gain more control over, if you prefer — the NBA Rules Committee. Rather than having to wrangle 30 independent-minded general managers, Stern put together a new hand-picked competition committee of coaches, players and GMs. One where he was more likely to get his ideals accomplished. But the owners…

    United States v Dominican Republic - Men's Exhibition Game

    If Thursday’s game in Manchester is any indication Great Britain is going to be a lovely host for the 2012 Olympic Games. They rolled out the red carpet for Team USA and by the end of the first quarter pretty much rolled over for Team USA, which went on to rout GBR 118-78 in a…

  4. Andrew Bynum’s agent says he has not spoken to Cavaliers. Yet.

    Andrew-Bynum-and-Dwight-Howard-806-306x248

    The Lakers, Magic and Cavaliers are still talking about a blockbuster three-team deal that would send Dwight Howard to the Lakers, Andrew Bynum to the Cavaliers, and Anderson Varejao and picks to Orlando (there are other players in that deal as well). But while fans (particularly Lakers fans) have raced out in front wanting this…

  5. Blazers waive Dan Gadzuric, so you can pick him up

    Jul 19, 2012, 2:33 PM EST

    GADZURIC_DAN

    Is this it for Dan Gadzuric, or is one more team going to give him a slot at the end of the bench as a backup? The Blazers are not willing to do that, they waived him on Thursday. Which was to be expected, he was thrown in the Raymond Felton trade as filler and…

  6. Hornets, Magic to play preseason game in Mexico City

    reforma-avenue Mexico City

    NBA fans in Mexico City are going to get to see a hot young team in the New Orleans Hornets and… whatever is going to be left on the Magic roster by the time training camp opens. The league has announced an Oct. 7 preseason game between New Orleans and Orlando in the new Mexico…

  7. Wall says time for him to be All-Star, Wizards to make playoffs

    Jul 19, 2012, 12:44 PM EST

    Washington Wizards v Atlanta Hawks

    The Wizards were more dysfunctional than a Kardashian marriage. So they have changed everything. Down to the uniforms. Look at it this way — John Wall is now the longest tenured Wizard, something owner Ted Leonsis wrote on his blog. He wrote about the top-to-bottom changeover of the roster. It needed to happen — the Wizards…

  8. The Inbounds: Hennigan’s Rainbow

    Jul 19, 2012, 12:00 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Los Angeles Lakers

    Earlier this month, it seemed like new Magic GM Rob Hennigan was trapped, and succumbing to the pressure. Word spread that the Nets were that magical word, “close” to a deal for Dwight Howard, in one of the most complicated trades maybe ever proposed, involving up to 14 players being swapped. The result was shady…

  9. Eric Gordon wants to lead Hornets, win fans back over

    Jul 19, 2012, 11:56 AM EST

    Eric Gordon

    The very nature of the restricted free agency process is awkward. Teams that go there essentially tell a player, “You go find out what the open market will offer for you, then we’ll decide if we like you that much.” It’s in our human nature to be wanted, to be appreciated. So these players go…

  10. Report: Bulls to start contract extension talks with Taj Gibson

    Jul 19, 2012, 10:56 AM EST

    Bulls' Gibson celebrates after a dunk on the Heat during Game 1 of their NBA Eastern Conference Finals playoff basketball game in Chicago

    The Bulls still have to fill out the edges of their roster for next season — do they match the offer sheet for Omer Asik? Who can help back up at the point guard spot? — but once they get past that, they want to get back to focusing on their core. They want to…

  11. Dennis Rodman briefly talks to father after 42 years

    Jul 19, 2012, 9:54 AM EST

    Rodman meets father

    I’m not going to play amateur psychologist here, I’m just going to lay out the facts. Dennis Rodman never really knew is father, who skipped out on Rodman’s family 42 years ago. Also, his father is named Philander Rodman Jr., who claims to have fathered 29 different children by 16 different mothers. (Yes, that is…

  12. Andray Blatche: “I apologize for the effort I gave out there”

    Jul 19, 2012, 8:41 AM EST

    Andray Blatche

    Andray Blatche has been amnestied by the Washington Wizards — they were willing to pay $23 million dollars to have him leave the roster and go somewhere else. That’s a harsh reality. They caught up with him at CSNWashington.com and talked to him about his time with the Wizards. The key part was his response…

  13. Video: Shane Battier talks NBA title, LeBron James

    Jul 19, 2012, 8:03 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game One

    Shane Battier is one of the more thoughtful guys in the league and you could tell as he got into the circus of the NBA finals that he was trying to soak in the experience. He wanted to enjoy this. This weekend he is in Lake Tahoe for a celebrity golf tournament and swung by…

  14. Report: Dwight Howard has change of heart, would re-sign with Lakers

    Jul 19, 2012, 3:45 AM EST

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    Lakers fans, go ahead and celebrate this news. But know one key thing — this doesn’t bring the trade any closer to reality. Still, one of the questions out there in the proposed trade scenarios to get Dwight Howard to the Lakers was the concern he would not re-sign in Los Angeles. And in the…

  15. Bulls finally make free agency move, sign Vladimir Radmanovic

    Jul 19, 2012, 12:45 AM EST

    Vladimir Radmanovic

    This is not exactly the free agency splash Bulls fans were hoping for. The Bulls have agreed to a one-year deal with Vladimir Radmanovic, a story broken by Dave Kaplan of CSNChicago.com. The deal will be officially announced Thursday. Terms of the deal were not yet known but if it is any more than the…

    adam morrison

    LAS VEGAS — NBA Summer League finished up with its fifth consecutive day of basketball on Wednesday evening and, as usual, there was a lot of basketball played. Not all of it was good basketball, unfortunately, but it was all basketball and there were some good things happening. The best thing that happened was the…

  17. JaVale McGee signs deal to stay with Nuggets

    Jul 18, 2012, 11:41 PM EST

    JaVale McGee signing

    Big men get paid in the NBA. It was ever thus. And it continues — JaVale McGee tweeted out the news (with a picture) of him signing to stay with the Denver Nuggets. According to Marc Spears of Yahoo it is a four-year, $44 million deal. That is more money per year but a shorter…

  18. Video: LeBron James has new “unstoppable shot”

    Jul 18, 2012, 8:30 PM EST

    Kevin Durant, Lebron James

    I really want him to try and pull this out against Great Britian on Thursday night. Or maybe against Tunisia in the actual Olympics. Above is a little highlight from Team USA’s workouts in England, with buddies (and they are buddies) LeBron James and Kevin Durant horsing around. And LeBron coming up with his new…

  19. Tobias Harris shines at NBA Summer League

    Jul 18, 2012, 7:13 PM EST

    tobias harris

    LAS VEGAS — Tobias Harris was unable to find a consistent spot in the Milwaukee Bucks’ rotation last year, leaving him Summer League this season to hope he can show the team he’s worth playing consistently next year. That trek continued on Wednesday afternoon in the Cox Pavilion. The second-year wing played more minutes than…

  20. Report: Raptors near deal for John Lucas III

    Jul 18, 2012, 7:06 PM EST

    John Lucas III, Carlos Boozer

    Kyle Lowry is in for Toronto (and will play well, this being a contract year and all). Jose Calderon wants no part of being a backup, so his agent and the Raptors are working to find a trade for him. Which means the Raptors need a backup point guard… enter John Lucas III. The former…
