  1. Players at USA Basketball mini-camp trying to impress with minimal guidance from coaches

    US Coach K Returns Basketball

    LAS VEGAS – The USA Basketball roster is not only at capacity, it’s overflowing with talented players who all want to represent their country on the world stage.

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points more than Americans love baby English monarchs… well maybe not that much. • Three…

  3. With Iguodala in fold, Harrison Barnes says he’s willing to come off bench

    Jul 23, 2013, 3:28 PM EDT

    Harrison Barnes

    Golden State made a good move getting Andre Iguodala — his perimeter defense is needed on that roster and his play in transition will suit what the Warriors do well. But it left a Harrison Barnes question. Iguodala will be the starter at the three (with Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, David Lee and Andrew Bogut),…

  4. 76ers replace risk-taking front office with risk-taking front office

    Jul 23, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Sam Hinkie

    Confession: I liked the Andrew Bynum trade for the 76ers. They were a middling team capable of making the playoffs but without the proven ability to win a series unless the opponent’s top player was injured. Their roster had limited flexibility, and two starters, Elton Brand and Andre Iguodala, were aging. The 76ers didn’t necessarily…

  5. Ian Clark leads Warriors to Summer League championship victory over Suns

    LAS VEGAS – The Warriors wrapped up Las Vegas Summer League on Monday with a 91-77 win over the Suns to take home the first ever championship trophy in the event’s history.

    LAS VEGAS – Kenneth Faried and Ty Lawson were on the basketball court at the Mendenhall Center in Las Vegas on Monday when the news broke that the Denver Nuggets had signed the dynamic and diminutive Nate Robinson to a free agent contract.

  7. Summer League championship game set between Suns and Warriors

    Jul 22, 2013, 2:04 PM EDT

    Raptors Suns Basketball

    LAS VEGAS – The two teams that have played the best and most consistent basketball through the first 10 days of Summer League will, not surprisingly, compete for the inaugural tournament championship played on the final day of the action. The Suns will face the Warriors in Monday night’s title game, with tip-off set for…

  8. Harden thinks Thomas Robinson will be fit in with Portland

    Jul 22, 2013, 12:44 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Dallas Mavericks

    Thomas Robinson had a nice Summer League in Las Vegas. He’s a plus rebounder that not only gets the balls in his position but also takes them away from other guys, and he averaged 12.8 rebounds a game. He also averaged 10.4 points and 1.2 blocks through five games. However, the shooting woes were still…

  9. Kent Bazemore with another highlight dunk at Summer League (VIDEO)

    Jul 21, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    Lakers Warriors Basketball

    Kent Bazemore has been lighting it up at Summer League for the Warriors, and continued his strong play in Saturday’s quarterfinal win over the Lakers. Bazemore has been scoring at a steady pace in Golden State’s five summer victories, and put up 26 points in his team’s most recent. He’s been doing it with some…

  10. Summer League notes: Archie Goodwin continues to impress for Suns

    archie goodwin summer league

    LAS VEGAS – After Saturday’s action at Las Vegas Summer League, we’re down to four teams and three games left in tournament play before the event wraps up on Monday. The Suns are still around, and were expected to be considering the amount of players with real NBA rotation experience that they brought to town.…

  11. Sprained ankle to keep Taj Gibson out of Team USA mini-camp

    Jul 19, 2013, 3:53 PM EDT

    Taj Gibson

    Chicago’s Taj Gibson’s blend of size and athleticism makes him an interesting fit for what Team USA likes to do — press on defense, create turnovers then get out and run. Play to your strengths, and with the USA that is the level and depth of athleticism. But a sprained ankle is going to keep…

  12. Warriors’ Bazemore with big Summer League dunk (VIDEO)

    Jul 19, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Wizards Warriors Basketball

    When you start talking about Summer League MVP candidates, Golden State sophomore Kent Bazemore‘s name needs to come up (along the Portland’s C.J. McCollum, Toronto’s Jonas Valanciunas, and Chicago’s Andrew Goudelock). Bazemore is averaging 18 points a game for the undefeated Warriors, and he put up 25 on Thursday against Dallas. The Old Dominion guard…

  13. Thursday Summer League Notes: Dion Waiters puts up some numbers

    Jul 19, 2013, 2:45 AM EDT

    Dion Waiters

    The Summer League tournament continued on Thursday, with some teams playing their last game in Vegas. Here are a few notes from the action. • Dion Waiters finally broke out of an ugly slump with a good half of basketball. Waiters had been shooting 29.5 percent through three Summer League games, plus he was turning…

  14. Will the Nuggets win 57 games again? Andre Miller: ‘Naw’

    Jul 17, 2013, 12:20 AM EDT

    Andre Miller, C.J. Watson

    The Nuggets completed a trifecta this offseason, losing a high-end player (Andre Iguodala, who signed with the Warriors), a high-end coach (George Karl, who was fired) and a high-end executive (Masai Ujiri, who was plucked by the Raptors). It’s a disappointing follow-up to a season in which Denver won a franchise-record 57 NBA games. Not…

  15. Kawhi Leonard to skip USA Basketball mini-camp; George Hill, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist added to the roster

    Jul 16, 2013, 12:32 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v San Antonio Spurs - Game Three

    USA Basketball will hold a four-day mini-camp in Las Vegas following the conclusion of Summer League beginning on July 22, and while the roster was originally set to include Kawhi Leonard, that will no longer be the case. Leonard will miss the mini-camp “while rehabbing from a long season,” USA Basketball announced on Tuesday via…

  16. Report: Brandon Jennings does not want to return to Bucks

    Jul 16, 2013, 10:40 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Dallas Mavericks

    This was probably true even before the Bucks made a run at Jeff Teague — remember a year ago Brandon Jennings changed agents and it was believed because he wanted the new guy to get him out of Milwaukee and to a bigger market. But now comes another report that Jennings does not want to…

  17. Wizards open contract negotiations with John Wall

    Jul 15, 2013, 9:12 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Washington Wizards

    The Wizards want to extend John Wall — he’s the guy they want to build around, the face of the franchise, he’s good in the locker room and good on the court (when he’s healthy and on the court). In his last 20 games last season he averaged averaged 23.9 points per game on 48.3…

  18. Iguodala says he seriously considered Kings but they put him on deadline

    Jul 15, 2013, 7:21 PM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    It was one of the stranger moves of the off-season — Sacramento made a very nice four-year, $52 million offer to Andre Iguodala then a few days later yanked the offer. It all worked out, Iguodala took a little less money ($48 million over four years) to land in Golden State. Now he’s telling his…

  19. Report: Jazz to sign John Lucas

    Jul 15, 2013, 6:25 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors head coach Dwane Casey talks with guard John Lucas III during the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Detroit Pistons in Auburn Hills

    If the Jazz are Riggin’ for Wiggins – and by letting two of their top players (Paul Millsap and Al Jefferson) leave in free agency and trading for hefty contracts (Richard Jefferson, Andris Biedrins and, to a lesser degree, Brandon Rush) just to get draft picks, it sure seems like they are – they’ll still…

  20. Summer League Notes: The svelte Draymond Green and other Day 2 highlights

    Wizards Warriors Basketball

    LAS VEGAS — Saturday saw some rough rookie debuts but also some strong performances. Here are a few notes and highlights from Day 2 of Summer League in Vegas. • Ben McLemore had a rough shooting Summer League debut at 4-of-23, but as noted in PBT’s story it wasn’t as bad as it looked. •…

  21. Iguodala was an hour away from signing with Dallas then Warriors trade went down

    Jul 12, 2013, 10:49 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    Mark Cuban and the Dallas Mavericks were thisclose to signing Andre Iguodala. Instead, a capped-out but aggressive Golden State ownership pulled together a three-team trade that gave them the room to add Iguodala to an already strong Golden State roster and makes them far more dangerous in the West. Iguodala wanted to be a Warrior,…

  23. Andrew Bynum has gained weight, not touched a ball in some time

    Jul 11, 2013, 2:08 PM EDT

    Andrew Bynum

    Let’s put it kindly — there is great skepticism around the league that Andrew Bynum can or will contribute much as an NBA player this season or ever again in the future. Yes, his knees that have been a chronic problem and kept him out all of last season. More than that, however, are questions about…

  24. Reports: Andrew Bynum agrees to sign with Cavaliers

    Jul 10, 2013, 8:24 PM EDT

    bynum-flagrant-beasley

    That was fast. After meeting with the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday, Andrew Bynum has agreed to sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to multiple reports. The contract details appear to be the same as were initially reported. From Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports: Andrew Bynum’s deal w/ Cleveland will include $6 million of $12M guaranteed…

  25. Reports: Jermaine O’Neal, Toney Douglas to sign with Golden State

    Jul 9, 2013, 3:09 PM EDT

    Jermaine O'Neal

    Golden State looks formidable: Stephen Curry at the point, Klay Thompson at the two, Andre Iguodala and David Lee are your forwards. Andrew Bogut is the starting center and his health (and defense) could be the lynchpin for how far this Warriors team can go. However, they need depth — and they may have found…
