  1. Knicks targeting Dwyane Wade. Again.

    Jul 6, 2010, 12:56 PM EDT

    They got Amare Stoudemire. Things are different in New York now. They have an anchor to build around. So why not make another run at Dwyane Wade? All the signs point to him staying in Miami. That if he went anywhere it would be sweet home Chicago. But South Beach has been good to him,…

    Jul 6, 2010, 10:49 AM EDT

    The New Jersey Nets are convinced that the Dwyane Wade/Chris Bosh tandem is headed to Miami.

  6. Report: Atlanta Hawks make two year offer to Shaquille O'Neal

    Jul 6, 2010, 9:49 AM EDT

    UPDATE July 6, 9:49 am: Perry Rogers, Shaq’s agent, denies that any offer has been made. He said they are still listening to Boston, Dallas and Atlanta. This is what agents do, keep options open for clients. However, frameworks are discussed before offers are made. So Atlanta wants to know Shaq’s reaction to two years…

  7. LeBron James isn't talking to anyone, but we're all still guessing

    Jul 6, 2010, 9:03 AM EDT

    We don’t know. Nobody in the media knows. That won’t stop us from speculating. We’ll use a shred of information to concoct entire theories. We’ll guess. (Complain about that if you want, but those guesses get a lot of viewers — you like it so we keep doing it). But we don’t know what LeBron…

  11. Count the Warriors among those looking to nab David Lee

    Jul 5, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

    The jury’s still out on exactly what kind of salary David Lee can command this off-season. Yet with Rudy Gay and Joe Johnson topping out on their earning potential, it wouldn’t be too much of a stretch to see some team give Lee a max deal. Hooray for the Summer of 2010, where basketball paupers…

  13. Free agent bargain bin: Udonis Haslem

    Jul 5, 2010, 11:33 AM EDT

    There remains a possibility — however slim — that the Miami Heat could suit up Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, and Chris Bosh next season. However, in order to do so, Miami would likely have to renounce Udonis Haslem’s Bird rights, which would prevent the team from going over the cap in order to re-sign Miami’s…

    Jul 5, 2010, 9:37 AM EDT

    Dwyane Wade is back in Miami. For four days. And not to sign any contracts. He flew back into the town begging him to stay as a player not to make any kind of announcement about his future, but to be at the Dwyane Wade All Star Camp, his youth camp (ages 7 to 18).…
