This is pretty much the opposite of what happened to USA Soccer for the World Cup. Pools for the first round of the FIBA Basketball World Cup, taking place in Spain this summer, were drawn Monday and the USA landed in probably the easiest group. The USA is in Group C with the Dominican Republic,…

The good news for Houston: Jeremy Lin will be back and in the starting lineup for the Rockets Monday against Dallas, which is good news with Patrick Beverly out for about six weeks with a fracture in his hands. The bad news: James Harden is sitting out Monday to rest the sprained ankle he tried…

NEW YORK — The Nets fell to 4-11 on the season after an early blowout ended up becoming a heartbreaker before the final buzzer sounded. But the vibe around the team is good despite the rough start, because some of the key players believe that the recent effort shown has the beginnings of trending things…

One week down, 23 more to go. Let’s look at some of the emerging storylines from the first week of the season. A Sneaky MVP Candidate Emerges There’s a real struggle to discern what’s real and what isn’t in the early part of the season, and the standings are almost a totem of sorts. If…

Monday night the focus around the Houston Rockets was how Omer Asik and Dwight Howard would play together. And the answer was Asik was really rusty and so the whole thing was awkward, but it’s too early to tell how it ends (probably with an Asik trade). However, I still find the point guard battle…

Last season: The Rockets began the year with the somewhat surprising trade for James Harden — surprising because of the Thunder’s choice to deal him so soon instead of pursuing a title with him in place for one more season. It was the right call on Houston’s part, as Harden immediately turned into the offensive…

The 2013 FIBA Americas Championship tournament will wrap up this week, but the important part was concluded on Sunday when the semifinalists were finalized. The top four teams of the tournament automatically earn berths to next year’s FIBA World Cup (an Olympic qualifier) meaning Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Argentina and Mexico are one step closer…

The 2013 FIBA Americas tournament finished its second day of action on Saturday night. The games that were supposed to be the best ended up being the most lopsided but, on the bright side, even those games were relatively fun to watch for a weekend in August. Saturday’s featured game, according to your’s truly, took…

Team USA had a mini-camp workout for some younger players this summer, but that was basically it for the senior men’s team. USA Basketball largely gets to take the summer off and gear up for the World Championships in Spain next summer. But much of the rest of the world is going at it in…

Now that the Rockets have Dwight Howard, the goal is to surround him and the rest of the team’s core with enough talent and depth to build a contending team. With that goal in mind, the Rockets have officially added two perimeter threats that should be able to take advantage of the space Howard creates…

Teams began entering into agreements with free agent players shortly after midnight Eastern on July 1, but due to a league-imposed moratorium on activity, no deals can be officially signed until July 10. We’re almost there, and plenty of the top names available have indeed been swooped up by teams looking to make a splash…

Francisco Garcia was essentially a throw-in as part of the deal made at the trade deadline that sent Thomas Robinson from the Kings to the Rockets. Garcia was looked at as not much more than an expiring contract, because he had a team option for next season for $6.5 million that was out of line…

The Knicks need another small forward. Chris Copeland is a free agent and could join the Pacers soon. Steve Novak was included in the original Andrea Bargnani trade, and Quentin Richardson was added to the revised version. James White was nearly waived during the season, and he’s probably headed to China. Iman Shumpert might play…
While the Lakers wait on Dwight Howard, they’re pursuing outside shooters for Mike D’Antoni’s system
Jul 2, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT
Dwight Howard is the Lakers’ first (and second and third) priority in free agency. They’ll meet with the big man on Tuesday with the hope that their pitch seals the deal on his return to Los Angeles where he will anchor their franchise and lead them into the post Kobe Bryant era. However, as the…
