    Jul 1, 2012, 10:31 PM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v Atlanta Hawks

    Here’s what’s going on with free agency news and rumors as the moratorium period began Sunday night at 12:01 a.m..Do not, by any means, consider this comprehensive. There’s so much going on, we’re just trying to get you an overview. (HT: Hoopshype, IAmAGM.com) Atlanta Hawks Well, for starters, they’re exploring a deal for Joe Johnson…

  2. Report: Nuggets talking Chandler for Warriors No. 7 pick

    Jun 27, 2012, 1:08 PM EDT

    Wilson Chandler, Kobe Bryant

    And as the draft nears, the rumors are flying fast and furious. On that passes the smell test is this from Chris Broussard of ESPN on twitter: Lots of teams calling Denver to trade for Nuggets’ young players. 1 of several moves being discussed: Wilson Chandler to G State for 7th pick Wilson Chandler could…

  3. Three potential NBA Draft busts (but we hope not)

    Jun 25, 2012, 4:24 PM EDT

    West Virginia v Connecticut

    I hate the idea of calling a guy a bust before the draft. You simply can’t say a guy will not pan out before he steps on the court for even a Summer League game. Let alone for an NBA game. Some guys rise to the challenge of stiffer competition. Some guys take a few…

  4. Who will Heat target in free agency? Just about everyone.

    Jun 25, 2012, 10:25 AM EDT

    Steve Nash, Grant Hill

    The party is still going on in Miami — they will be parading through downtown with the Larry O’Brien trophy on Monday and a whole lot of people are going to be “sick” from work to get down and be part of the festivities. But in the Miami front office, there is no break. They…

  5. Andre Miller having discussions about return to Denver

    Jun 19, 2012, 5:37 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Five

    There’s an interesting free agent point guard class. Deron Williams is the big catch while Steve Nash could be a great short-term boost to some team. Then there are interesting players who could really help the right team. Like Andre Miller, the veteran point who was in Denver last year. Ty Lawson is the future…

  6. Sessions opts out, becomes free agent; Lakers need a PG again

    Jun 19, 2012, 12:29 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Lakers

    That turned out to be the definition of a rental… Lakers point guard Ramon Sessions — who the team picked up at the trade deadline, sending their first-round pick to Cleveland — has opted out of his deal and will become a free agent, reports Mike Bresnahan of the Los Angeles Times. He was to…

  7. What would Team USA under-23 Olympic team look like?

    Jun 15, 2012, 7:37 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant, Team USA

    David Stern wants it. Mark Cuban wants it. Most of his fellow NBA owners want it. At his pre-finals press conference, David Stern again said he wants the Olympic basketball program to start following the soccer model — under-23. There would be one World Cup every four years with no age restrictions, but the Olympics…

  8. 2012 adidas Eurocamp: Day 3 recap

    Jun 13, 2012, 3:35 AM EDT

    adidas Eurocamp Day 3

    The final day of adidas Eurocamp didn’t necessarily feature the camp’s best players, but that doesn’t mean that there weren’t a few guys who made their presence felt. The camp’s top prospects were long gone by Day Three, with Evan Fournier, Tomas Satoransky, and even Nihad Djedovic all choosing to forego the last day’s activities.…

  9. Danilo Gallinari tells players at adidas Eurocamp that they will have to earn their NBA respect

    Jun 12, 2012, 11:05 AM EDT

    adidas Eurocamp Day 3

    Danilo Gallinari and Nicolas Batum held a question and answer session with the players at adidas Eurocamp on Tuesday, and the event covered a variety of topics. The most interesting dialogue came from Gallinari, as he explained to the players what it’s like to transition from playing in Europe to playing in the NBA. Essentially,…

  10. 2012 adidas Eurocamp: Day 2 recap

    Jun 11, 2012, 7:04 PM EDT

    adidas Eurocamp Day 2

    Evan Fournier is the top international prospect in attendance at adidas Eurocamp, and after skipping the first day of action, Fournier was a full participant in Day Two’s activities. Projected as a mid-to-late first round pick before playing at Eurocamp, if anything, his play on Monday solidified his draft position, and perhaps even made his…

  11. 2012 adidas Eurocamp: Day 1 recap

    Jun 10, 2012, 3:09 PM EDT

    Adidas Eurocamp Day 1

    Day one of adidas Eurocamp is in the books, and while several of the players showed flashes of ability throughout the opening session, the best player on the floor was Tomas Satoransky. The 6’7″ combo guard from the Czech Republic was consistent in his brilliance throughout the day, and showed off his excellent overall court…

  12. Report: Golden State thinking small forward and Jason Kidd

    Jun 6, 2012, 1:28 PM EDT

    Mavericks guard Kidd watches from the bench against the Spurs  during their NBA basketball game in Dallas, Texas

    One half of the report out of the San Francisco Chronicle makes a lot of sense — Golden State needs an upgrade at the three spot and they have a lot of assets heading into the draft to make a move. But the second half of this makes no sense to me. The San Francisco…

  13. Report: Heat to go after Andre Miller as free agent

    Jun 6, 2012, 11:40 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Five

    Miami clearly needs something. Is that something a new, quality point guard? Is a guy used to having the ball in his hands and creating shots for others going to mesh with LeBron James and Dwyane Wade on the court? But the point guard line of thinking seems to have gained some momentum. There have…

  15. Another report Wizards will retain Randy Wittman as coach

    Jun 1, 2012, 10:37 AM EDT

    Randy Wittman

    While the team itself denies that there is any decision made, more and more reports are bubbling up that the Washington Wizards have decided to strip the interim tag off Randy Wittman and keep him as coach. The latest such report comes from Ric Bucher at ESPN: Had the Wizards won the draft lottery and…

  16. David Stern focused on some serious NBA rule changes

    May 31, 2012, 8:04 AM EDT

    NBA Commissioner Stern participates in a panel session at The Cable Show in Boston

    There was a time — all the way back to last year — when if David Stern wanted to get an NBA rule changed, he had to convince a majority of NBA general managers to go along with him. So Stern changed the rules. There is a new NBA Competition Committee, handpicked by Stern, which…

  18. Point guards Irving, Rubio lead NBA All-Rookie team

    May 22, 2012, 3:56 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers rookie Kyrie Irving reacts after a turnover during the second quarter of the Cavaliers NBA basketball game against the Miami Heat in Cleveland

    The NBA is evolving into more of a point-guard league — if you can’t touch a quick ball handler on the perimeter they are going to carve up any defense. With the rules enforced as they are, Tony Parker can’t guard Tony Parker. So no shock that the two guys on top of the NBA…

  19. Flopping, international goaltending rule targets of new NBA rules committee

    May 21, 2012, 11:22 AM EDT

    David Stern

    No longer will all 30 NBA general managers be voting on rule changes. And really, why should the guys in charge of basketball operations teams be in charge of rule changes? That makes sense. Under the direction of David Stern, the NBA has put together a smaller committee made up of owners, GMs and coaches…

  20. Nuggets GM reiterates they want to keep JaVale McGee

    May 17, 2012, 10:14 PM EDT

    JaVale McGee

    One of the more interesting questions of the summer is: How much would you pay JaVale McGee? He is a restricted free agent and Nuggets GM Masai Ujiri is already trying to scare off potential suitors suggesting they will match offers for him. Ujiri said Thursday he plans to re-sign McGee this summer. What is…

  22. Rudy Fernandez says Real Madrid in play if NBA teams don’t step up

    May 17, 2012, 9:02 AM EDT

    Rudy Fernandez Nuggets

    For the past couple summers, Rudy Fernandez has had the Real Madrid card in his back pocket. Two years ago he tried to get Portland to release him so he could go play for the Spanish powerhouse, but that wasn’t happening. Instead they traded him to Denver. Fernandez played for Madrid during the lockout, but…

  23. JaVale McGee may get to play for Philippines national team

    May 15, 2012, 1:40 PM EDT

    Nuggets' McGee dunks the ball against the Lakers during their NBA Western Conference basketball playoff game win in Los Angeles

    What follows will be the strangest sentence I will type this week, no doubt: There is a bill working its way through the legislature in the Philippines to make JaVale McGee a naturalized citizen so he can play for their national basketball team in time for the 2013 Asia Championships (which feed into the World…

  24. It’s official, Kyrie Irving is your NBA Rookie of the Year

    May 15, 2012, 10:53 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v New Jersey Nets

    This race had about as much suspense as the fourth quarter of Game 1 of the Thunder/Lakers series, but now it is official: Kyrie Irving is your NBA Rookie of the Year. The announcement and presentation came Tuesday morning in Cleveland, where Irving had praised heaped upon him by his coach Byron Scott (via Jason…

    Russell Westbrook, Matt Barnes

    Two years ago, the Oklahoma City Thunder faced the Los Angeles Lakers in the first-round of the 2010 NBA Playoffs. It was supposed to be a nice learning experience for a team on the rise, a quick lesson from the reigning champs as to how the playoffs work. Instead, the world was introduced to the…
