  1. Possible Top 10 draft pick Alex Len out 4-6 months after ankle surgery

    May 3, 2013, 5:28 PM EDT

    Alex Len

    Maryland center Alex Len had been moving up draft boards — big men always move up the board and Len is 7’1” and skilled, with a good touch around the basket. DraftExpress had him going No. 7. I say had because news came out Friday that Len had ankle surgery that will sideline him into…

  2. Here is the complete list of early entrants for 2013 NBA Draft

    May 1, 2013, 11:50 AM EDT

    Marshall v Kentucky

    The early entrant list for the NBA Draft — also known as the list of guys NBA teams want to draft — is now official. The league released it on Wednesday. What follows is the complete list. Said list contains the guys who are going to go high and who you know — Nerlens Noel,…

  3. Marcus Smart still could declare for NBA Draft if he wants

    Apr 27, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Devon Energy College Basketball

    Marcus Smart said he’s returning to Oklahoma State, and the NCAA’s early entry deadline has passed. But, contrary to popular belief, the potential No. 1 overall pick can still declare for the 2013 NBA Draft. There’s even a rumor he’s considering it. Word on the street is Marcus Smart is having second thoughts about pulling…

  4. Despite earlier statement, Louisville’s Russ Smith to skip NBA draft

    Apr 24, 2013, 3:41 PM EDT

    Michigan v Louisville

    Young men have the right to change their mind. Louisville guard Russ Smith has. Not long after the NCAA Tournament said he was going to pull a George Costanza and leave on a high note, walking away after the Cardinals won the NCAA title and entering the NBA draft. But now he’s changed his mind,…

  5. Marcus Smart surprisingly (foolishly?) returning to Oklahoma State

    Apr 17, 2013, 12:18 PM EDT

    Marcus Smart

    Marcus Smart will return to Oklahoma State for his sophomore season, according to John Helsley of The Oklahoman. Smart’s decision is rather curious. He nearly certainly would have been a top-10 pick and had No. 1 overall potential this year. The point guard needs work – especially his jump shot and his ability to take…

  6. The Inbounds: Daryl Morey and the point of no return

    Jul 20, 2012, 1:00 PM EDT

    Daryl Morey

    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. Someone asked me two weeks ago why it was that everyone thought Daryl Morey was so good at his job.…

  7. Video: Damian Lillard throws it down on Keith Benson

    Jul 20, 2012, 11:40 AM EDT

    Damian Lillard, Austin Rivers

    Our man Scott Schroeder was just telling you, Damian Lillard is on his way to being the NBA Summer League MVP in Las Vegas. Which is nice. Come this fall when training camp opens that award will matter about as much as his two Big Sky Player of the Year awards. Still, as Summer League…

  8. Damian Lillard continues to impress at NBA Summer League

    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…

  9. Thomas Robinson gets best of Jared Sullinger at NBA Summer League

    Jul 19, 2012, 8:35 PM EDT

    thomas robinson

    LAS VEGAS — Thomas Robinson has been one of the more underwhelming first round picks at the NBA Summer League, though that’s partially due to the high expectations bestowed upon the first round pick. The Sacramento Kings played their fifth and final game on Thursday evening, though, giving Robinson one last chance to keep Kings…

  10. Report: Courtney Lee going to Celtics in sign-and-trade

    Courtney Lee

    Ray Allen, Celtics fans are going to miss you. But they are really going to like the guy filling your role. Boston has reached a deal to acquire Courtney Lee in a sign-and-trade with the Houston Rockets, reports Marc Spears of Yahoo Sports. Celtics to acquire G Courtney Lee from Rockets in a sign and…

  11. Hornets, Magic to play preseason game in Mexico City

    Jul 19, 2012, 1:56 PM EDT

    reforma-avenue Mexico City

    NBA fans in Mexico City are going to get to see a hot young team in the New Orleans Hornets and… whatever is going to be left on the Magic roster by the time training camp opens. The league has announced an Oct. 7 preseason game between New Orleans and Orlando in the new Mexico…

  12. Eric Gordon wants to lead Hornets, win fans back over

    Jul 19, 2012, 11:56 AM EDT

    Eric Gordon

    The very nature of the restricted free agency process is awkward. Teams that go there essentially tell a player, “You go find out what the open market will offer for you, then we’ll decide if we like you that much.” It’s in our human nature to be wanted, to be appreciated. So these players go…

  13. Adam Morrison impresses on sixth day of NBA Summer League

    Jul 19, 2012, 12:33 AM EDT

    adam morrison

    LAS VEGAS — NBA Summer League finished up with its fifth consecutive day of basketball on Wednesday evening and, as usual, there was a lot of basketball played. Not all of it was good basketball, unfortunately, but it was all basketball and there were some good things happening. The best thing that happened was the…

  14. Jeremy Lin a good fit in Houston, but don’t expect playoffs

    Jul 18, 2012, 6:23 PM EDT

    BBVA Rising Stars Challenge

    As Knicks fans are slowly coming to grips with, when the NBA season tips off next fall Jeremy Lin will be a Rocket. Maybe he wanted to stay, doesn’t matter. Marketing people are already making the switch — bootleg No. 17 Lin rocket shirts are already out on the market, and the not bootleg ones…

  15. 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…

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

    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…

  17. 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…

  18. 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…

  19. Knicks do not match offer, Landry Fields is a Raptor

    Jul 15, 2012, 1:58 AM EDT

    Landry Fields

    The Toronto Raptors have a new starting swingman. Well, at least until Terrence Ross takes his job away. The Knicks have chosen not to match the three-year, $18.7 million offer sheet Landry Fields signed with Toronto, reports Alan Hahn of the MSG Network. Which means Fields will be Raptor next season. It was speculated the…

  20. NBA Summer League’s second day features plethora of solid performances

    Jul 15, 2012, 12:26 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Memphis Grizzlies

    LAS VEGAS — The second day of NBA Summer League featured pretty the same things as the first — random cameos in the crowd by established NBA like Baron Davis, J.R. Smith and David Lee; a lot of less than stellar basketball interspersed with jaw-dropping highlights and 32 quarters of players most of the crowd…

  21. It’s just Summer League, but damn Harrison Barnes looked good

    Jul 14, 2012, 8:01 AM EDT

    Harrison Barnes

    LAS VEGAS — There was a time, a year or more before the last draft, when it was thought Harrison Barnes could be the top pick in this past draft. After a good but not great college season, and as teams fell in love with other guys, he fell all the way to Golden State…

  22. Donatas Motiejunas and other young players started off solidly at NBA Summer League

    Jul 14, 2012, 2:12 AM EDT

    donatas motiejunas

    LAS VEGAS — The NBA Summer League began on Friday and, unfortunately, none of the games were very close. Fortunately, however, there were a lot of pretty stellar performances that fans should be impressed with considering their rookies were playing in their first professional games. It’s tough to take too much of the game to…

  23. Boston Celtics re-sign Chris Wilcox

    Jul 13, 2012, 4:57 PM EDT

    Chris Wilcox, Brandon Bass

    This was expected. The Celtics wanted Chris Wilcox back, he wanted to come back. So it’s a done deal. The two sides reach an agreement Friday, reports A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com. “I definitely feel I have some unfinished business,” Wilcox told CSNNE.com shortly before agreeing to re-join the Celtics. In a phone interview with CSNNE.com,…

  24. Houston Rockets going hard after Dwight Howard dream

    Jul 13, 2012, 9:49 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Rockets GM Daryl Morey is going all-in. He is pushing his chips in and trying to win the bracelet. Or in this case, the ring. To win titles in the NBA you need to have a franchise anchor, a true superstar. Since 1980, one team has won a title without at least one of those…

  25. Jarrett Jack traded to Warriors as part of Dorell Wright deal

    Jul 11, 2012, 3:40 PM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Five

    Yesterday we told you the Sixers continuing to stockpile swingmen like a squirrel hording nuts for the winter, agreeing to trade for Golden State’s Dorell Wright. But that deal grew on Wednesday to include Jarrett Jack heading west, tweeted Marc Stein of ESPN.com. In review, then: Sixers getting Dorell Wright; Warriors getting Jarrett Jack and…
