  1. Jeff Van Gundy questions if Magic fans should stay loyal

    Aug 14, 2012, 1:59 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Is it really worth it? Every fan of a team has asked themselves that at some point. Is the emotional commitment worth the payoff? Are there better things I could be doing with my time and money? Usually we come back around to yes on that question, because the ties to the team are not…

  2. Orlando admits what became obvious: It’s about the draft

    Aug 13, 2012, 1:41 PM EDT

    Rob Hennigan

    There are a lot of ways to question the ultimate decision that Orlando made in trading Dwight Howard. That has to start with, why didn’t you just do this at the trade deadline? I know you wanted to keep your superstar but everyone could see where this was headed, you needed to get out quick…

  3. Good news Bulls fans: At least you’re not getting McGrady

    Aug 8, 2012, 7:10 PM EDT

    Tracy McGrady

    After finally signing Marquis Teague, the Bulls have enough money left under the hard-cap apron to sign one more player — a rookie on a minimum deal. Not a second year player, their minimum is too high. Rookie minimum only. You want some good news, Bulls fans? That means you can’t sign Tracy McGrady. You…

  6. Jeff Teague says he will be more of a leader in Atlanta

    Aug 2, 2012, 11:33 AM EDT

    Gilbert Arenas, Jeff Teague

    For a couple years now the refrain has been the same from the Atlanta Hawks coaching staff (or staffs, it has been the same for a couple coaches now): We want Jeff Teague to take charge of this team. I remember coaches preaching that to him at Summer League a couple years back, Larry Drew…

    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. There’s something obscenely obvious in the fact that we, the media (but not really because most NBA media think Bird…

  9. Winderman: Despite Dwightmare, we’ve reached NBA slow season

    Aug 1, 2012, 1:34 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    In a non-Dwight year, this is when it tends to stop, in August. As an NBA executive recently explained, there tend to be four stages to the offseason when it comes to personnel moves: — The start of the free-agency period and the resulting immediate frenzy. — The period shortly thereafter when offer sheets are…

There are some good players still out there, but we are talking role and end of the bench players now. The big moves are done. With that, we bring you news of…

  11. Clippers trade for Willie Green from Hawks

    Jul 30, 2012, 8:31 PM EDT

    Raptors forward Anderson defends against  Hawks guard Green in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Atlanta

    If things go well for the Clippers, Willie Green will rarely see the court. They have Jamal Crawford to play the two guard spot and they hope Chauncey Billups will be healthy and eating up minutes soon. But, things rarely to plan and the Clippers want to be prepared, so they announced they have traded…

    ESPN Boston reports that the Celtics are set to sign free agent center Jason Collins to a veteran-minimum deal. The 33-year-old Collins appeared in just 30 games last season for the Atlanta Hawks.
