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

    Jul 19, 2013, 3:53 PM EST

    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…

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

    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…

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

    Jul 19, 2013, 2:45 AM EST

    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…

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

    Jul 17, 2013, 12:20 AM EST

    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…

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

    Jul 16, 2013, 12:32 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jul 16, 2013, 10:40 AM EST

    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…

  7. Wizards open contract negotiations with John Wall

    Jul 15, 2013, 9:12 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jul 15, 2013, 7:21 PM EST

    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…

  9. Report: Jazz to sign John Lucas

    Jul 15, 2013, 6:25 PM EST

    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…

    Jul 14, 2013, 12:25 AM EST

    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. •…

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

    Jul 12, 2013, 10:49 AM EST

    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,…

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

    Jul 11, 2013, 2:08 PM EST

    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…

  14. Reports: Andrew Bynum agrees to sign with Cavaliers

    Jul 10, 2013, 8:24 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jul 9, 2013, 3:09 PM EST

    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…

  16. Report: Randy Foye agrees to be part of sign-and-trade, join Nuggets

    Jul 9, 2013, 10:43 AM EST

    Randy Foye

    We told you this could be coming on Monday — veteran two guard Randy Foye could be going from Utah to Golden State as an extension to the Andre Iguodala sign-and-trade to Golden State. Now that is all but official, it has been agreed to according to the Associated Press. Foye is a free agent…

  17. Report: Warriors to sign Marreese Speights to three-year deal

    Jul 8, 2013, 8:04 PM EST

    Marreese Speights, Festus Ezeli

    The Warriors depleted their bench while upgrading their top six, which is a pretty good tradeoff. In the playoffs, where Golden State is and should now be focused, rotations shrink and a team’s best players matter more. But it doesn’t hurt to have depth, and this should help bolster the Warriors’ bench. Marc J. Spears…

  18. If Jazz guard Randy Foye agrees to Nuggets contract, Warriors could spend more in free agency

    Jul 8, 2013, 8:45 AM EST

    Denver Nuggets guard Andre Iguodala drives past Utah Jazz guard Randy Foye during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Salt Lake City, Utah

    The Warriors will sign Andre Iguodala to a four-year, $48 million contract. Golden State will also trade Richard Jefferson, Andris Biedrins, Brandon Rush and draft picks to the Jazz for Kevin Murphy. That much we know. Utah guard Randy Foye, a free agent, might go to the Nuggets on a three-year, $9 million contract (with…

    Los Angeles Clippers Introduce Chris Paul

    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…

  20. One of the next big summer questions: How big an extension for John Wall?

    Jul 7, 2013, 5:00 PM EST

    John Wall

    Agent Dan Fegan has been a tad busy at the start of free agency, what with being one of the agents and key advisors to Dwight Howard and all. But now that is basically done and Fegan can move on to another client and one of the other interesting questions of the NBA Summer: What…

  21. Warriors lose key reserves Jarrett Jack and Carl Landry in free agency

    Jul 6, 2013, 6:30 PM EST

    Warriors forward Carl Landry reacts after making a shot and drawing a foul against the Spurs during their NBA basketball game in San Antonio, Texas

    The Warriors were a fun and exciting team last season, as well as one that exceeded expectations. If they’re going to continue that improvement next year, they’ll be doing it without two key reserves, both of whom were lost in free agency. Jarrett Jack played big point guard minutes for the Warriors off the bench,…

  22. Paul Millsap agrees to two-year deal with the Hawks

    Jul 6, 2013, 12:31 AM EST

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Clippers

    The Utah Jazz knew that two of their best players would be unrestricted free agents this summer, and yet they played out all of last season without trading them to try and get anything of value in return. They didn’t bother to re-sign them, either. After Al Jefferson left for the greener pastures of the…

  23. Dwight Howard and James Harden could form NBA’s best duo

    Jul 5, 2013, 7:43 PM EST

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers

    Dwight Howard is a center. James Harden is a guard. Howard is one of the NBA’s best defenders. Harden is one of the league’s top offensive players. Howard is an elite interior scorer. Harden’s range extends beyond the 3-point line. Howard is excellent as the screener in pick-and-rolls. Harden is superb as the ball-handler on…

  24. Report: Mavericks told they are out of Dwight Howard running

    Jul 5, 2013, 5:38 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    And then there were three… The Atlanta Hawks really never stood a chance to get Dwight Howard in free agency (he was only going home if Chris Paul went with him, and that chance died). Now the Dallas Mavericks have been told they are out of the race, something first reported by to Marc Stein…

  25. Warriors sign Andre Iguodala after trading Richard Jefferson and Andris Biedrins to Jazz
