  1. Report: Free agent Marcus Camby looking at six teams

    Jul 2, 2012, 10:28 PM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns, Game 5

    Marcus Camby is a big who can block shots in the paint, knock down the midrange jumper and play smart. There is real value in that. Which is why there are a lot of teams interested in him. He’s narrowed down his list down tow six, reports Chris Haynes of CSNNW.com. The unrestricted free-agent center,…

    Jul 2, 2012, 8:32 PM EST

    Tribeca/ESPN Sports Film Festival  Gala: Benji - 2012 Tribeca Film Festival

    He was a long shot anyway after the disaster of a season he just had, but Lamar Odom — who had an invite to Team USA Training Camp — is dropping out of consideration. Via the only other national media member that went to my high school, ESPNLosAngeles’ Arash Markazi, on twitter: Lamar Odom tells…

    Jul 2, 2012, 7:59 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Utah Jazz - Game Three

    The Hawks have added another point guard to the mix — they have traded for Devin Harris from Utah, sending Marvin Williams back to the Jazz, reports Marc Stein of ESPN. This comes on the heels of Atlanta shipping out All-Star Joe Johnson and his anchor of a contract for a bevy of players. Hawks…

  5. Joe Johnson trade to Nets nearly complete, Brooklyn out of Dwight Howard chase

    Jul 2, 2012, 6:04 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    The Nets seem to be thinking about having an interesting team to open the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn with next season, the years beyond that be damned. And Dwight Howard be damned. He has said Brooklyn is the place he wants to be but when this trade for Joe Johnson goes through they would be…

  6. You can now own the ultimate Thundermobile. If you want.

    Jul 2, 2012, 4:49 PM EST

    Thunder car

    You were probably thinking this morning, “What would be the most Thunder kind of car ever?” Here’s your answer, see the photo to the right (and below). That is a 1996 Suzuki X-90 completely Thundered-out by Oklahoma City’s own Drew Hooper. Who apparently said to himself one day, “I want a car with a picture…

  7. Undrafted Kevin Jones inks partially guaranteed deal with Cavs

    Jul 2, 2012, 4:13 PM EST

    Kevin Jones, Gary Browne

    West Virginia’s Kevin Jones made my list of guys who didn’t get drafted but should have been. However, he is going to get a chance to make an NBA squad — the Cavaliers have signed him to a partially guaranteed deal, reports Adam Zagoria. What that means is he will play Summer League and likely…

  8. Brandon Bass has offers from six teams besides Celtics

    Jul 2, 2012, 3:35 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics - Game Four

    Brandon Bass proved to be a huge upgrade for Boston over Glen Davis last season. By bringing consistent, professional effort nightly for one reason. In the playoffs his midrange game and timely cuts to the basket were a perfect fit in the Celtics offense. But as comes with success, the price of keeping the band…

  9. Report: Rockets, Lakers among teams interested in Dragic

    Jul 2, 2012, 2:33 PM EST

    Rodrigue Beaubois, Goran Dragic

    When Kyle Lowry went down last season in Houston, backup point guard Goran Dragic stepped up and the Rockets barely missed a beat. Do that in a contract year and you get paid… even if you’re not going to get paid as much as you think you should. Then again, who among us does get…

  10. George Hill agrees to five-year deal to stay with Pacers

    Jul 2, 2012, 1:58 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers' Hill dribbles against Miami Heat's Chalmers during their NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoff in Indianapolis

    When you have a good young team, keep them together. That is what is going on in Indiana, where along those lines they have agreed to terms with George Hill on a new five-year deal, tweets Mike Wells of the Indy Star. Terms of the deal are not yet known. So we can wait to…

  11. Report: Anthony Davis severely sprains ankle, out of Olympics

    Jul 2, 2012, 1:09 PM EST

    Draft Hornets Basketball

    And Team USA loses another potential big man for the roster. Recent No. 1 pick Anthony Davis severely sprained his ankle in a workout for the Hornets, which leaves him very unlikely to be ready when USA Basketball opens training camp Friday (July 6) in Las Vegas and he is now out for the games,…

  12. So maybe Jeremy Lin isn’t a total lock to return to Knicks

    Jul 2, 2012, 12:43 PM EST

    BBVA Rising Stars Challenge

    It’s been the conventional wisdom around the league that Jeremy Lin would return to Knicks. They can match the $5 million any team could offer him next season and he is worth considerably more than that, somewhat on the court but more in terms of ticket sales, sponsors and marketing. He’s a steal at that…

  13. The Inbounds: Free Agency and the Magical Musical Chairs

    Jul 2, 2012, 12:00 PM EST

    Suns guard Nash looks to drive on Mavericks center Mahinmi during their NBA basketball game in Dallas, Texas

    Welcome to The Inbounds, touching on a big idea of the day. It could be news, it could be history, it could be a tangent, it could be love. OK, it’s probably not love. Enjoy.  If the Pacers don’t match Hibbert’s offer, then Batum could go to Minnesota. If the Bulls don’t match Asik’s offer,…

  14. Report: Andre Miller to re-sign with Nuggets for three years

    Jul 2, 2012, 11:45 AM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Five

    It looks as if Andre Miller will end his career a Denver Nugget. Miller has agreed to a three-year deal to stay with the Denver Nuggets, reports the Denver Post. The 36-year-old point guard is arguably coach George Karl’s favorite player because of Miller’s ability to make the proper pass and fuel the offense. The…

  15. Lots of interest in Jason Terry, but Mavs get chance to match

    Jul 2, 2012, 10:52 AM EST

    Jason Terry

    Jason Terry can flat out light it up. At age 34 he averaged 15 points per game shooting 37 percent from three. There are about 30 teams in the league that could use a guy like that when he is on, a former NBA Sixth Man of the Year and unrepentant gunner. A few of…

  16. Six teams jump into Jamal Crawford hunt on opening day

    Jul 2, 2012, 9:58 AM EST

    Jamal Crawford

    To me, the question is what Jamal Crawford are you getting? Is it the 2010 version that was a feared gunner and Sixth Man of the Year who averaged 18 points a game, shot 38 percent from three and changed a contest when he stepped on the floor? Or, is it the 2012 version that…

  17. Top 10 most interesting NBA free agents to watch

    Jul 2, 2012, 9:34 AM EST

    Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    Lockout? You mean those months last year we didn’t have basketball as owners fought to put constraints on themselves because when it comes time to bid for free agents they don’t trust themselves to be rational? What lockout? Less than 48 hours into the 2012 summer free agent frenzy owner rationality has gone the way…

  18. Brandon Roy down to five teams in comeback

    Jul 2, 2012, 8:02 AM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    Brandon Roy is going to be making a comeback next season. Wise or not. It’s happening. The only question is where? We’re down to five finalists, according to Adrian Wojnarowski on Yahoo. The Timberwolves are one of five finalists for Roy, including the Chicago Bulls, Dallas Mavericks, Indiana Pacers and Golden State Warriors. Meetings with…

  19. Rockets agree to 3-year, $25.1 million deal with Omer Asik

    Jul 2, 2012, 3:30 AM EST

    Omer Asik

    The Rockets have been looking for a center to hang their hat on since Yao Ming retired. On Sunday, they came to terms with a player they hope will at least do the job for a little bit. Multiple sources, including Yahoo Sports report that Houston has come to an agreement with restricted free agent…

  20. Dwight Howard says he will only re-sign with one team

    Jul 2, 2012, 1:46 AM EST

    Orlando Magic's Dwight Howard gestures during the first half of their NBA basketball game against the Boston Celtics in Boston

    Dwight Howard is still trying to influence where he gets traded. Howard wants to be traded to the Brooklyn Nets and play with Deron Williams, and to influence that he told Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo (and NBC Sports Network) that he would only re-sign to stay with one team. As the Los Angeles Lakers, Houston…
