    Jul 24, 2012, 6:00 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki (41) reacts after hitting a three point shot during the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Utah Jazz  in Salt Lake City, Utah

    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. Dallas had the worst offseason. Dallas had the best offseason. Two sides, one coin. Usually when you whiff on a…

  2. Deron Williams helping Nets try to recruit Kirilenko

    Jul 24, 2012, 5:14 PM EDT

    Andrei Kirilenko

    Would Andrei Kirilenko come back to the NBA to play for the veteran minimum? It’s kind of hard to picture, but that is what the Nets are trying to convince him to do, reports Marc Stein at ESPN. And they are using Deron Williams to do the recruiting. Sources close to the process told ESPN.com…

  3. Brandon Rush just chillin’, waiting for an offer he likes

    Jul 24, 2012, 4:03 PM EDT

    Dahntay Jones, Brandon Rush

    Brandon Rush is going to be on an NBA roster next year. And he’ll inspire some hope in a fan base that sees his potential as a scorer and they will dream about how maybe their coach/system can bring that out of him. But what fan base that will be remains up in the air.…

  4. Kobe’s play with Team USA could foreshadow Lakers offense

    Jul 24, 2012, 3:39 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant of the US looks on during an

    Against Spain on Tuesday, or when Team USA opens Olympic play against France Sunday, watch Kobe Bryant work in the offense. He often starts on the weak side, or certainly off the ball, as Chris Paul comes off a high pick and tries to dissect the defense. LeBron James will do some shot creation for…

  5. Sixers sign their rookies Harkless, Moultrie to contracts

    Jul 24, 2012, 3:13 PM EDT

    2012 NBA Draft

    It’s that time of year when pen hits paper and a lot of deals we knew were set become official. That includes rookie deals, and the Wizards have inked both Moe Harkless and Arnett Moultrie, the team announced. Harkless moves into a crowded swingman rotation in Philly where he will have to fight for playing…

  6. Wizards sign point guard A.J. Price to one-year deal

    Jul 24, 2012, 2:50 PM EDT

    A.J. Price

    A.J. Price played well as a rookie in Indiana, but his play slipped and he was squeezed out of minutes in Indiana as George Hill became the point guard the team wanted. Now, Price is getting a second chance to prove his worth as a backup. He has inked a one-year deal to play with…

  7. USA, Spain want to send message without revealing much

    Jul 24, 2012, 1:54 PM EDT

    Spanish player Paul Gasol (L) vies with

    The United States and Spain will meet with nothing on the line on Tuesday evening in Barcelona. It’s the biggest, most anticipated pre-Olympic friendly in the world as the two gold medal favorites face off. Next time they meet, it very possibly will be with the gold medal in the London Olympics on the line.…

  8. Winderman: New CBA means role players will see short-term contracts

    Jul 24, 2012, 1:05 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Phoenix Suns

    As the NBA adjusts to its new collective-bargaining agreement, we’re beginning to see some short-term returns. Literally. With a more punitive luxury tax and free agents thinking twice about moving on to new teams (and therefore significantly smaller contracts than by remaining with their incumbent teams), we’re apparently in the era of incremental rebuilds. Example…

  9. Summer League standout Malcolm Thomas has many suitors

    Jul 24, 2012, 12:52 PM EDT

    Malcolm Thomas

    For a guy on the fringe, a good showing at Summer League can change your fortunes. Meet Malcolm Thomas. The “other forward” at San Diego State when Kawhi Leonard was there who spent last season in the D-League with a couple of call ups. But at Summer League in Las Vegas he looked very good…

  10. Ronnie Brewer reaches deal to join New York Knicks

    Jul 24, 2012, 12:27 PM EDT

    Ronnie Brewer, Ron Garretson

    Iman Shupert and his quality wing defense will be out the first couple months of the season as he recovers from knee surgery (and maybe longer as it takes a while to get up to speed). In his place, the Knicks are bringing in Ronnie Brewer, the two sides have reached a one-year deal according…

  11. Jeremy Lin admits “Linsanity” got into his head, that he will always have haters

    Jul 24, 2012, 12:05 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets Introduce Jeremy Lin

    Be honest here — if you suddenly you went from relative obscurity to huge international star, a lot of things would go to your head. And the temptations of excess would get the better of many. What you have to appreciate here is a level of reflection and self-awareness on the part of Jeremy Lin…

  12. Kevin Love finds minutes on Team USA slipping away

    Jul 24, 2012, 11:08 AM EDT

    Kevin Love, Andres Nocioni

    On paper, Kevin Love should be playing increasingly key minutes for Team USA — he is second most logical center behind Tyson Chandler, his rebounding and outlet passing skills fit the up-tempo style Team USA wants to play, and on offense he can hit the three and pull opposing bigs away from the basket. But…

  13. Mavericks still want to keep Delonte West on the roster

    Jul 24, 2012, 10:36 AM EDT

    Delonte West, Ricky Rubio

    When healthy last season, Delonte West played pretty well for the Dallas Mavericks — 9.6 points per game on 46 percent shooting with a PER of 15.3 Those are solid minutes, which is why he started 33 games for them. And why they want him back. Mavericks GM Donnie Nelson told the Star-Telegram he has…

    Jul 24, 2012, 8:29 AM EDT

    Omer Asik

    This was expected, we were just waiting for it to become official. It will on Tuesday — the Bulls will not match the three-year, $25.1 million offer sheet the Rockets gave center Omer Asik, reports K.C. Johnson at the Chicago Tribune. Asik will become a Rocket on the exact same deal that make Jeremy Lin…

  16. First vote on new Seattle arena could take place next week

    Jul 24, 2012, 7:59 AM EDT

    Seattle SuperSonics v Denver Nuggets

    If you build it they will come. Maybe. That seems to be Seattle’s plan for a new arena to house an NBA team. Although it hasn’t worked yet in Kansas City, which has the sweet Sprint Center sitting there with nothing but Disney on Ice and some concerts to fill the space. No NBA or…

    Jul 24, 2012, 1:58 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers' Foye shoots over Dallas Mavericks' Marion during their NBA basketball game in Dallas

Foye becomes the second Clipper guard from last season to join the Jazz, along with Mo Williams. Foye started 48 games for the Clippers…

  18. Another Dwight Howard update that really isn’t an update

    Jul 23, 2012, 11:22 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Chicago Bulls

    And our Dwightmare continues, and likely will for a couple more weeks. The latest update — which is really a leaked negotiating tactic — comes from Chris Broussard at ESPN.com. The Orlando Magic have told rival executives that they might not trade Dwight Howard after all, according to league sources. An executive who has had…

  19. Delfino disappointed Bucks have not reached out to him

    Jul 23, 2012, 9:08 PM EDT

    Carlos Delfino

    Carlos Delfino is not sitting around fretting about where he might play next season. The free agent swingman is busy as a key part of the Argentinian national team, preparing for the Olympics. Still, teams are reaching out to him and his agent (Cleveland, Atlanta and Boston have been mentioned). Just not the Bucks, where…

    Jul 23, 2012, 7:31 PM EDT

    C.J. Watson

    C.J. Watson has gone from backing up one of the best point guards in the game to backing up one of the best point guards in the game. With the Bulls the past couple seasons, Watson has inked a deal with the Nets to back up Deron Williams, according to Stephan Bondy of the New…
