  2. C.J. Miles to sign with Cleveland Cavaliers

    Aug 3, 2012, 2:49 PM EDT

    C.J. Miles, Randy Foye, DeAndre Jordan

    C.J. Miles was being courted by a few teams to be a backup swingman — including the Mavericks, Rockets and Lakers — but he tweeted out on Friday that he has chosen the Cleveland Cavaliers. According to Brian Smith of the Salt Lake Tribune this is a two-year deal. One key reason he likely made…

  3. 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…

  4. Report: Cavaliers interested in Delfino, C.J. Miles

    Jul 31, 2012, 12:42 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks' Carlos Delfino reacts after making a three point basket against the Boston Celtics during the first half of a NBA basketball game in Milwaukee, Wisconsin

    The Cavaliers need some depth at the three. They’ve got Omri Casspi and in theory they can match any offer for restricted free agent Alonzo Gee, but Cleveland is looking at its options. So while the Bucks are not reaching out to him, the Cavaliers are talking to Carlos Delfino, according to a report at…

    The Olympic basketball tournament is loaded with NBA players. Loaded. There are 39, and that is just guys currently on rosters (there are a couple not on now that likely will be by the time camp opens. Here is a list of all the NBA players in the Olympic tournament. Not a coincidence that the…

  7. NBA schedule released, some big games on the front end

    Jul 26, 2012, 7:54 PM EDT

    Image (1) Nba_logo-thumb-250x250-17150-thumb-250x250-17151.png for post 3595

    Would you look at that, a full 82 game schedule. Haven’t seen one of those in a while. Kind of missed it. The NBA released the full season schedule on Thursday and clearly they had some marketing in mind. Some fans liked the big splash when the league opened on Christmas Day last year after…

  8. Kobe Bryant says he starts the trash talk on Team USA

    Jul 26, 2012, 2:48 PM EDT

    United States v Dominican Republic - Men's Exhibition Game

    After watching him smack around Kyrie Irving and challenge the rookie to a $50K charity one-on-one match, can this be a surprise at all? Kobe Bryant says he starts the smack talk on Team USA. And he does it to loosen guys up. Kobe sat down with LakerNation.com for an exclusive interview (see more in…

  9. Cavaliers trade for Grizzlies point guard Jeremy Pargo

    Jul 26, 2012, 12:14 AM EDT

    Jeremy Pargo, Jonny Flynn

    Cleveland has added a little more depth at point guard spot, although this is more about hoping a guy develops than big minutes now. Cleveland has traded for Jeremy Pargo from the Memphis Grizzlies, with swingman D.J. Kennedy heading back to Cleveland. Pargo has played one season in the NBA (don’t confuse him with his…

  10. 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…

  11. Samardo Samuels’ improved conditioning helped him shine at NBA Summer League

    Jul 20, 2012, 8:07 PM EDT

    samardo

    LAS VEGAS — There are a lot of players in Las Vegas this week that nearly nobody recognizes due to the hodgepodge that is NBA Summer League. There’s a power forward on the Cleveland Cavaliers that is unrecognizable for other reasons, however, as Samardo Samuels has undergone a complete body overhaul compared to how he…

  12. Damian Lillard continues to impress at NBA Summer League

    damian lillard

    LAS VEGAS — Seven days in Las Vegas is a long time regardless of the occasion, but there are times that it has seemed particularly long this week as four games in a gym watching fringe NBA players play basketball can surprisingly take its toll on a guy. There are always a few moments that…

  13. Report: Bynum extension in Cleveland shows challenges of Howard trade

    Jul 19, 2012, 8:42 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    On one hand this is not new news — everyone involved knew Cleveland would not trade for Andrew Bynum as part of a three-team deal that sends Dwight Howard to the Lakers unless Bynum was willing to commit long term. And he might, in the past Cleveland was one of the three teams on a…

  14. Andrew Bynum’s agent says he has not spoken to Cavaliers. Yet.

    Jul 19, 2012, 4:17 PM EDT

    Andrew-Bynum-and-Dwight-Howard-806-306x248

    The Lakers, Magic and Cavaliers are still talking about a blockbuster three-team deal that would send Dwight Howard to the Lakers, Andrew Bynum to the Cavaliers, and Anderson Varejao and picks to Orlando (there are other players in that deal as well). But while fans (particularly Lakers fans) have raced out in front wanting this…

  15. Report: Dwight Howard has change of heart, would re-sign with Lakers

    Jul 19, 2012, 3:45 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    Lakers fans, go ahead and celebrate this news. But know one key thing — this doesn’t bring the trade any closer to reality. Still, one of the questions out there in the proposed trade scenarios to get Dwight Howard to the Lakers was the concern he would not re-sign in Los Angeles. And in the…

  16. Report: Lakers agree to one-year deal with Antawn Jamison

    Jul 18, 2012, 4:26 PM EDT

    Antawn Jamison

    It’s not quite Dwight Howard… actually, he’s nothing like Dwight Howard. Especially if you talk defense. But it is a better signing than a lot of people realize. The Lakers have agreed to a one-year, veteran’s minimum deal for 14-year NBA veteran Antawn Jamison, tweets Mark Spears of Yahoo Sports. Jamison was given a heavy…

  17. Reheated rumor: Cavaliers reportedly back as third team in Howard to Lakers trade

    Jul 18, 2012, 3:59 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    You spin me right round, baby; right round like a record, baby; Right round round round… I wish the Dwight Howard trade were dead or alive. Instead it keeps limping along in unlikely incarnations as the Lakers make one more push for it before throwing in the towel and talking to Andrew Bynum about a…

  18. Josh Selby shows he’s closer to reaching potential at NBA Summer League

    Jul 18, 2012, 12:34 AM EDT

    josh selby

    LAS VEGAS — Josh Selby earned a vote for the NBA’s All-Rookie Third Team this past that many in the media felt wasn’t deserved. While that may have been the case, there’s a good chance he cemented himself a spot on the All-Summer League roster following Monday evening’s performance at the Cox Pavilion in lovely…

  19. The Inbounds: Steve Nash, the Lakers, and the lawlessness of the point guard wilderness

    Jul 17, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Phoenix Suns

    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. “How does Steve Nash help them stop Russell Westbrook or Tony Parker?’ That’s the standard reaction from skeptics to the…

  20. With outside shot missing, USA relies on defense, transition to beat Brazil

    Jul 17, 2012, 4:33 AM EDT

    Brazil v USA - Men's Exhibition Game

    Well, that wasn’t pretty. Sure team USA beat Brazil 80-69 in an exhibition of two Olympics-bound squads front of president Barack Obama and a packed house in Washington D.C., but Brazil provided a real test for the Americans and the result was some vulnerabilities showing for Team USA. The problem was the United States could…

  21. NBA Summer League: Where Tyler Zeller stands out above the rest

    Jul 17, 2012, 12:43 AM EDT

    zeller

    The NBA Summer League is already through four days of basketball, leaving those around the world clamoring for non-Team USA basketball just six more days of games until the annual extravaganza is complete. There’s already been one player that has received a confirmed NBA training camp invite (congratulations, Chris Copeland!), but plenty more players are hoping for…

  22. Dion Waiters shows he’s got some work to do after Summer League debut

    Jul 16, 2012, 1:50 PM EDT

    Dion Waiters Summer League

    LAS VEGAS — The image you should take away of Cleveland’s Dion Waiters from his Summer League debut is him standing out by the arc, waiving his arm calling for the ball. Or maybe it is the image of him getting the inbound pass with his team down one and 3.9 seconds left in the…

  23. Brazil provides big test for Team USA Monday. Literally big.

    Jul 16, 2012, 12:11 PM EDT

    Tyson Chandler

    It is the one weakness for Team USA — after Tyson Chandler there are no other true centers on the USA Basketball roster due to injuries. In The USA’s first game, against the Dominican Republic, coach Mike Krzyzewski tried Kevin Love, LeBron James and seemingly everyone but Chris Paul at the five spot. The Dominicans…

  24. NBA Summer League: Where Chris Copeland comes to shine

    Jul 16, 2012, 12:51 AM EDT

    chris copeland

    The NBA Summer League season continued on Sunday with seven more games of players looking to reach the next level by way of a couple solid exhibition games in lovely Las Vegas. It doesn’t seem like anyone is a can’t miss signee quite yet, but the odds began to favor a few players that have…

  25. Kyrie Irving fractured his hand at NBA Summer League practice

    Jul 15, 2012, 12:13 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Atlanta Hawks

    The NBA Summer League has had a lot of solid players doing a lot of solid things, but there hasn’t been a player able to create a buzz quite like Blake Griffin, John Wall or any of the other Summer League stars of yonder years. It looked like Kyrie Irving might be that player considering…
