  1. Boris Diaw agrees to re-sign with Spurs

    Jul 10, 2012, 9:49 AM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v San Antonio Spurs - Game Two

    Boris Diaw was largely a punchline for the few seasons he spent in Charlotte. Primarily people joked about his weight and how he was on such a bad team with such a bad contract. Then he was traded to San Antonio, and low and behold, he became a playoff contributor who was able to make…

  2. Report: Spurs, Danny Green agree to three-year deal

    Jul 10, 2012, 8:11 AM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Clippers - Game Three

    When the Spurs find a role player they like, they keep them. Enter Danny Green. The Spurs and Green, a restricted free agent, have agreed to a three-year, $12 million deal, reports Sam Amick of Sports Illustrated. Green took a big step forward for the Spurs last year, scoring 9.1 points per game and being…

  3. J.R. Smith agrees to re-sign with Knicks for two-year deal

    Jul 10, 2012, 2:06 AM EST

    Knicks' Smith shoots during their win over the Heat in Game 4 of their NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoff series in New York

    That’s it. I’m calling it. Creative Artists Agency is run by aliens. That’s the only conclusion I have as the behemoth representation agency that counts among its clients LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, and several members of both the Knicks’ roster and management office has announced that J.R. Smith will return to the Knicks,…

  4. Hawks meet with Anthony Randolph as Ferry keeps bargain hunting

    Jul 9, 2012, 9:30 PM EST

    Randolph_Anthony

    Anthony Randolph had himself a nice little season last year. After years of being the do-it-all forward who couldn’t do anything, he landed in Minnesota and showed some genuine talent and the ability to legitimately play the 4, something which had eluded him for years in Golden State. With Minnesota, he finally made some progress,…

  5. Report: Knicks reach deal to get Marcus Camby from Houston

    Jul 9, 2012, 8:07 PM EST

    Marcus Camby Knicks

    It may not end up being the biggest trade to go down in New York in the next 24 hours, but this is still a good signing for the Knicks. Marcus Camby is back with the Knicks. New York has reached a deal with Houston to bring in Marcus Camby as part of a sign-and-trade…

  6. Deron Williams uses his best moves to avoid Howard questions

    Jul 9, 2012, 7:55 PM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v New Jersey Nets

    Deron Williams knew what was coming. The second the media was allowed to ask questions of the Team USA participants this at Monday’s practice in Las Vegas (where D-Will is part of the London-bound squad), he knew what he was about to be asked. What is up with Dwight Howard? When will Dwight Howard be…

  7. Who are the most likely amnesty clause cuts? Hello Darko.

    Jul 9, 2012, 7:16 PM EST

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Sacramento Kings

    We already know Elton Brand will be amnestied in Philly. But come Wednesday (and for one week after that) what other guys are likely going to be sent packing with the amnesty clause this year? Larry Coon of ESPN put together a comprehensive list and here is what we know — there will likely be…

  8. Courtney Lee says more than 8 teams interested in him

    Jul 9, 2012, 5:28 PM EST

    Courtney Lee

    Everything you hear from players, agents and teams right now should be taken with a grain of salt. But it’s been clear for a while that Courtney Lee — the swingman who is a good perimeter defender — was drawing a lot of interest. But he tells A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com a number that…

  9. Details of potential Dwight Howard trade leaking. Magic get Lopez, picks.

    Jul 9, 2012, 4:54 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v New York Knicks

    UPDATE 4:54 pm: The Clippers may be the fourth team in the deal, reports both Ken Berger at CBSSports.com and Chad Ford at ESPN. The Clippers would send a first round pick to the Nets for MarShon Brooks, then the Nets would ship that pick to the Magic as part of the deal. This appears…

  10. Greg Monroe is ticked he was snubbed by USA Basketball

    Jul 9, 2012, 4:17 PM EST

    Shane Battier, Ronny turiaf, Greg Monroe

    Pistons big man Greg Monroe is in Orlando right now, working out against recent Detroit draft pick Andre Drummond in between games of the Orlando Summer League. Where he is not is Las Vegas as a member of the USA Select team that goes against the United States Olympic squad in practice. He’s pretty ticked…

  11. Knicks reach terms to keep Steve Novak for four years

    Jul 9, 2012, 3:28 PM EST

    Steve Novak

    If you are an NBA role player and want to stay in the league, you need to have one exceptional skill, do one thing particularly well and find teams who need that skill. Steve Novak can shoot the three — he shot 47.2 percent from deep last season and took 5.2 a game. The New…

  12. Report: Pacers to match $58 million max offer to Hibbert

    Jul 9, 2012, 3:07 PM EST

    Roy Hibbert

    Roy Hibbert will remain an Indiana Pacer. It was the only move the Pacers could really make. The Portland Trail Blazers agreed to offer Roy Hibbert a max extension — four years, $58 million — on July 11. Indiana was torn as to whether or not to match the offer, but they have decided to…

  13. Other Team USA players think ring will make LeBron better

    Jul 9, 2012, 1:52 PM EST

    LeBron James participates in the U.S. Olympic basketball team practice in Las Vegas

    LeBron James can play better? The very thought should send chills down the spines of other contenders, he already had an epic season — MVP, NBA finals MVP, NBA champion, potential gold medal winner — but the other guys on Team USA think he can be and will be. That’s what they told Ian Thomsen…

  14. Dwyane Wade had his knee surgery Monday, out eight weeks

    Jul 9, 2012, 1:18 PM EST

    Miami Heat Wade jumps to the basket on top of Oklahoma City Thunder Harden during Game 3 of the NBA basketball finals in Miami

    The only reason Dwyane Wade isn’t running with Team USA and otherwise melting in the Las Vegas heat right now is his left knee wouldn’t let him. He needed it drained during the playoffs and was dragging his left leg around, his trademark explosiveness cut down. Monday, Wade had the expected surgery on his knee.…

  15. DeJuan Blair expects Spurs to trade him. He’s right.

    Jul 9, 2012, 12:42 PM EST

    DeJuan Blair, Al Harrington

    At the start of last season, DeJuan Blair was the Spurs special find. Everybody wanted their own Blair — hard working guy who did the dirty work inside, would score efficiently (53.4 percent shooting last year) and could rebound a little. He started nearly every game for the Spurs last season. By the end of…

  16. 50 Observations about NBA Free Agency

    Jul 9, 2012, 12:21 PM EST

    New Jersey Nets v Atlanta Hawks

    From time to time, I drop random observations because it’s too long for a tweet and too short for a full post. Also because it allows me to crack jokes, which is really the reason I’m here. That and the money. Mostly the money. Anyway, it’s been a crazy week of free agency. Here are…

  17. Kings reach deal to keep Jason Thompson in house

    Jul 9, 2012, 11:51 AM EST

    Jason Thompson, Carl Landry, Greivis Vasquez

    Jason Thompson is one of the NBA’s better kept secrets. Mostly because nobody really watched the Sacramento Kings the past couple years. He’s a 6’11” athletic power forward who can get to the rim and shot 39 percent beyond 16 feet (good enough that you have to respect it). He scored 9.1 points per game…

  18. Video: Steve Nash makes a little girl cry

    Jul 9, 2012, 11:06 AM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Phoenix Suns

    As a father with daughters about this age, let me be up front is saying it’s not that hard to get them to cry. Telling them you made round pancakes not Micky Mouse shape can do it. But if they are emotionally invested at all in something and it doesn’t go like they want, there…

  19. Doc Rivers doesn’t agree with Allen’s reasons for leaving

    Jul 9, 2012, 10:40 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics - Game Six

    In the end, Ray Allen left because Miami made him feel wanted. Celtics GM Danny Ainge shopped Allen around more than a year — at one point the deal got so far he was told he was being moved only to have it still fall apart last minute. Then he goes to Miami and hears…

  20. Bynum interested in Mavs, Rockets if he leaves Lakers

    Jul 9, 2012, 9:59 AM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Seven

    The key reason Dwight Howard is likely not going to the Lakers is Andrew Bynum. Not that the Magic don’t want him — he’s certainly better than Brook Lopez and the T.G.I.Fridays sampler platter that they likely get — but that they can’t keep him. Just like Howard, Bynum is a free agent next summer.…
