    Jul 3, 2012, 1:47 PM EST

    Landry Fields

    This is an expensive but smart play by the Toronto Raptors. Knicks guard Landry Fields has agreed to sign an offer sheet from the Toronto Raptors, Marc Stein of ESPN reports. Sources say that the three-year deal offer sheet to Fields, with the Year 3 jump a la Omer Asik, approaches $20 million What that…

  2. Looks like Jeff Green is healthy, will re-sign with Celtics

    Jul 3, 2012, 1:22 PM EST

    Jeff Green

    Boston fans seem to love the whole “if we were healthy, if we had Jeff Green, the playoffs would have been different” idea. I hate what ifs, and I think this year was the Celtics last deep run with this core. But they would have been better with Jeff Green, who had to walk away…

  3. Nets sign Spanish league star Mirza Teletović to deal

    Jul 3, 2012, 1:02 PM EST

    Mirza Teletovic, Pero Antic

    You may not know who Mirza Teletović is, but he has been on the radar of NBA teams for a while — the Bosnian power forward has been one of the better offensive players in Europe for a few years. And he is coming to the Nets, he has inked a three-year deal to play…

  4. Dwight Howard to Nets: It can happen, but is it likely?

    Jul 3, 2012, 12:12 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    The Orlando Magic are talking to the New Jersey Nets about a possible Dwight Howard deal. And there are a few ways — complex ways — that a deal could come together. But if you think it’s a foregone conclusion — and I’m looking at you, Nets fans — you should check out what Ken…

  5. Video: Guy makes LeBron James balloon sculpture. Really.

    Jul 3, 2012, 11:08 AM EST

    Miami Heat LeBron James takes a break during a stoppage in play in their game against the Oklahoma City Thunder during Game 3 of the NBA finals in Miami

    Well, you don’t see that everyday. As a man with young daughters, I’m more familiar with balloon sculptures than I care to be, and frankly people who are good at it build impressive things. And I will say — building a life-size LeBron James out of balloons is an impressive feat. BYU student Joel Zae…

  6. Report: Kirk Hinrich now Bulls top target… not that thrilling

    Jul 3, 2012, 10:43 AM EST

    Image (1) nba_hinrich-thumb-275x203-10073.jpg for post 2735

    If Bulls fans were hoping to see their team get in the Dwight Howard sweepstakes or go after some other big name free agent, we’re sorry. Sounds like the Bulls are going to wait for Derrick Rose to heal and stay with the guys they have pretty much, if this tweet from the reliable K.C.…

  7. Ray Allen chase involves Celtics, Heat, Clippers, Grizzlies

    Jul 3, 2012, 9:45 AM EST

    Ray Allen, Nick Young

    Ray Allen may be 36 and have to have off-season ankle surgery after fighting through bone spurs all playoffs long, but that’s not slowing teams down much. The chase for Ray Allen seems to be a four team race, reports David Aldridge of NBA.com — Boston, Memphis, Clippers, Miami. It really comes down to what…

  8. Report: Suns offer Steve Nash $6 mill a year for just two years

    Jul 3, 2012, 8:59 AM EST

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Phoenix Suns

    If true, can Steve Nash look at this as anything other than disrespect? Not that he was headed back to Phoenix anyway, but Paul Cavlvisi of KSTAR radio in Phoenix reports the Suns offer is two years, $6 million per year. (Via IamaGM.com). Take that with a grain of salt. But the two years thing…

  9. Report: Magic, Nets in talks to send Dwight Howard to Brooklyn

    Jul 3, 2012, 8:25 AM EST

    Dwight Howard

    Twenty-four hours ago it looked like the Nets were moving on from Dwight Howard, but things change fast in free agency. I say change fast because a version of this deal wasn’t good enough for Orlando at last year’s trade deadline and even recently we heard the sides were far apart, but suddenly everything has…

  10. Clippers ready offers to Jamal Crawford, Chauncey Billups

    Jul 3, 2012, 8:02 AM EST

    Jamal Crawford

    The Clippers need a two guard who can help them diversify their offense (we saw what happened when the Spurs stifled Chris Paul in the playoffs, it wasn’t pretty). Jamal Crawford can do that, even if last year’s Crawford should not be confused with the Sixth Man of the Year version. On another note, Paul…

  11. Well, now what Dwight Howard? Report says maybe Mavs.

    Jul 3, 2012, 2:34 AM EST

    Dwight Howard

    I’ll say this for LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony — it wasn’t pretty and drew the wrath of many upon them, but they ended up where they wanted to go. Dwight Howard is struggling with that. His plan to end up on the Brooklyn Nets — already a public relations disaster as he disavows saying…

  12. Kobe, LeBron lead list of nine who secured berths on Team USA

    Olympics Day 16 - Basketball

    There are no surprises — did you think Kobe Bryant or LeBron James were going to be left off the team? —  but now we know nine of the 12 players who will represent the United States in the London Olympic basketball tournament. USA Basketball president Jerry Colangelo laid it out for Chris Tomasson of…

  13. 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,…

  14. Long shot Odom pulls self out of Olympic consideration; Lin leaves USA Select Team

    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…

  15. Report: Jazz trade Devin Harris to Hawks for Marvin Williams

    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…

  17. 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…

  18. 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…

  19. 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…

  20. 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…
