    The “most intriguing rumor/report award” of the day so far definitely goes to DraftExpress’ Jonathan Givony, who gave us this cryptic tidbit a little earlier:  Teams calling Sacramento about the #7 pick are being told it’s already been moved. Problem is, no one knows to who, or for which player. Okay, that’s kind of a…

    Here’s another tidbit from the invaluable Adrian Wojnarowski, this time concerning the #2 pick: Many front offices are frustrated trying to deal with Minny for No. 2 pick. One says, “If you want a deal right now you’re talking to Utah.” There has been speculation about Utah trading the #2 pick ever since they got…

  4. Barea says he’d sign with Dallas… or the Lakers, or Heat

    Jun 23, 2011, 3:25 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    Every NBA finals there is one player used brilliantly by his team who has a big playoffs, happens to be a free agent, gets overpaid and is asked to play a bigger role with another team. It doesn’t always work as planned. J.J. Barea is perfectly poised to be that guy. The Mavericks want to…

    Jun 23, 2011, 3:09 PM EDT

    Dan Gilbert

    Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski with an interesting draft rumor: Cleveland’s trying to get a 3rd first round pick — in the 20′s — dangling its two second rounders (32 and 54) and maybe cash, sources say.

  7. Rumored Lakers trade of Odom for Iguodala dead

    Jun 23, 2011, 2:43 PM EDT

    Andre Iguodala, David Lee

    UPDATE June 23, 2:43 pm: While this trade burned up twitter and message boards, it appears to be dead in the water. Both Kate Fagan of the Philadelphia Inquirer and Ken Berger at CBS are saying it’s done. While the two sides talked it may never have been all that serious. The other thing to…

  8. Did Oklahoma City make promise to Reggie Jackson?

    Jun 23, 2011, 2:33 PM EDT

    Reggie Jackson, Verdell Jones

    Reggie Jackson is a guy a lot of scouts want their team to take a risk on. The Boston College point guard very quick and that comes in handy in an era when you can’t touch guards on the perimeter. He’s a great athlete with a ridiculous seven-foot wingspan. He needs to develop a consistent…

    Jun 23, 2011, 2:00 PM EDT

    Nowitizki tattoo

    Someday he is going to have to explain why he has the face of a German man tattooed on his a– to a woman, but for now we will just admire his committment to his Mavericks fandom. One Mavericks fan got a tattoo of Dirk Nowtizki’s face on his derriere. He explained his thinking to the…

    Jun 23, 2011, 1:31 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics, Game 6

That according to Jonathan Givony at DraftExpress, on twitter. Hearing Portland and Orlando are talking about swapping Andre Miller and Jameer Nelson, with the #21 pick going to Orlando. Orlando has…

  12. Starting with Cavaliers at No. 4, draft will mean hard choices

    Jun 23, 2011, 1:07 PM EDT

    Lietuvos Rytas's Jonas Valanciunas (C) j

    For all the chatter otherwise, it would be stunning not to see Kyrie Irving not go No. 1 and Derrick Williams No. 2. We may well have stunning, it’s been that kind of NBA season, but you might not want to bet on it. As we said before, the draft gets interesting when the Jazz…

  13. Kemba Walker is falling in the draft. How low will he go?

    Jun 23, 2011, 11:42 AM EDT

    NCAA Men's Championship Game - Butler v UConn

    There was a time, right after Kemba Walker made big plays in crunch time leading his UConn Huskies to the national title, that Walker was a top five pick in this draft. But his stock is falling and he could plummet down the draft board all the way to the Knicks at No. 17 (no…

    The NBA has seen more rumors in the last 24 hours than the morning after a Charlie Sheen party. At least we didn’t wake up wondering where we were. We’ll be bringing you all the latest over the course of Thursday right up to the draft (and plenty of pick-by-pick draft coverage, too) but to…

  15. Can the Lakers, Celtics or Heat find any help in this draft?

    Jun 23, 2011, 10:15 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    The focus during the draft is often on the teams that saw little of the spotlight during the season — hello Minnesota! But what about some of the league’s top teams that need some tweaks to get a ring next season? The Miami Heat made it to the finals but it is clear their roster…

  16. Report: Thunder offering Eric Maynor to move up in draft

    Jun 23, 2011, 9:40 AM EDT

    MAYNOR_ERIC

    A number of teams have floated the idea of trading a player for one of the picks higher up in this draft. The Lakers dangled Lamar Odom, Tony Parker’s name was thrown around by the Spurs, and countless other deals have been suggested. The Oklahoma City Thunder have done the same… except they really like…

  17. NBA Draft: Second rounders you hope your team gets

    Jun 23, 2011, 8:15 AM EDT

    Jimmy Butler, Krys Faber

    Every year somebody gets drafted in the second round and by December we’re already asking how so many teams missed on him. Call it the Landry Fields effect. It’s impossible to predict who that will be out of the 2011 NBA Draft, but we can take a few guesses. Here are some second rounders to…

  18. Report: Tony Parker to the Trail Blazers was discussed

    Jun 23, 2011, 2:14 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Atlanta Hawks

    While the Spurs deny it, comments from other teams make it look like Tony Parker is being shopped around like he is on QVC. How serious those talks are is the question. In the case of a Hoopsworld report, things got very close with the Portland Trail Blazers. The San Antonio Spurs and Portland Trail…

  19. Are Cavaliers taking a risk with taking a Duke player No. 1?

    Jun 23, 2011, 1:47 AM EDT

    Arizona v Duke

    For the last couple decades, Duke has been the best, most consistent college basketball program in the nation. They have the Final Fours, the NCAA titles to prove it. And they have sent a lot of players on to the NBA. But Duke players have not thrived at the next level. In fact they have…

    UPDATE 11:10 pm: NBA Commissioner David Stern released this statement to the Associated Press when asked to comment on what Derek Fisher and Billy Hunter said of the last proposal from owners. “Players have benefited from the current system more than the teams.
