  1. George Hill explains reason for backing out of USA Basketball mini-camp

    Jul 25, 2013, 5:01 PM EDT

    George Hill

    LAS VEGAS – George Hill was a late scratch for this week’s USA Basketball mini-camp in las Vegas, with the given reason at the time being listed only as a “scheduling conflict.” That didn’t seem to be a great excuse considering the late date (July 21) that the organization received word that Hill wouldn’t be…

  4. Paul George says he has no plans to leave Indiana. Sorry Lakers fans.

    Jul 23, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Indiana Pacers - Game One

    Among the many and sometimes (often?) delusional dreams that Lakers fans have about the free agency rebuild the team will attempt in the summer of 2014 is this one: Bringing Paul George back to his Los Angeles roots. If the Pacers and George do not come to terms on a contract extension before Oct. 30…

    Larry Bird was the ultimate gym rat player. He simply seemed like he could knock down any shot — open or contested, he could create just enough space to get a look and he didn’t need much. They guy could just shoot. Still can, apparently. Nima Zarrabi of SLAM caught up with Indiana’s Paul George…

  6. George Hill pulls out of Team USA minicamp due to “scheduling conflict”

    Jul 22, 2013, 1:07 AM EDT

    George Hill

    Indiana point guard George Hill got an invite to the USA basketball minicamp in Las Vegas this week, where Mike Krzyzewski and crew are getting a look at 28 of the best young players in the NBA. Guys that could be part of Team USA in the future. But Hill has begged out of it…

  7. 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…

  8. Larry Bird on Paul George’s potential offers: ‘We’re going to match’

    Jul 18, 2013, 4:23 PM EDT

    Paul George, LeBron James

    Paul George will be a free agent, but a restricted free agent, next summer. So, even if he wanted to leave Indiana for, I dunno, maybe the Lakers, the Pacers would have the right to match any offer. George is well on his way to becoming a max-contract player, and if the Pacers believe he’s…

  9. Report: Raptors reach one-year deal with D.J. Augustin

    Jul 17, 2013, 6:58 PM EDT

    D.J. Augustin

    Kyle Lowry is your starting point guard in Toronto, he and Rudy Gay are both going to want the ball in their hands. But with Jose Calderon gone the Raptors backup at the point was Dwight Buycks, who has looked pretty good in Summer League but is not somebody you yet want to trust with…

  10. Paul George says ‘it would be tough to say no’ to Kobe, but he’s happy with the Pacers

    Jul 17, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Paul George, Kobe Bryant

    Paul George had a breakout season for the Indiana Pacers, earning his first trip to the All-Star game and going toe-to-toe at with LeBron James at times during a compelling Eastern Conference Finals series that went all seven games. His rookie contract will be up after next season, at which time George will technically hit…

  11. Tyler Hansbrough doesn’t exactly sound pumped to be a Raptor (VIDEO)

    Jul 16, 2013, 4:07 PM EDT

    Tyler Hansbrough

    Tyler Hansbrough is EXCITED to be a Toronto Raptor… After the Pacers brought in Chris Copeland and let Hansbrough walk, he landed a two-year deal with the Raptors for just over $5 million (second year not guaranteed). Not a bad pickup for Toronto, he brings some toughness and minutes at the four off the bench.…

  12. 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.

    Toney Douglas, Jrue Holiday

    Congratulations, Jrue Holiday. Fresh off marrying U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team member Lauren Cheney (now Lauren Holiday) – and the subsequent honeymoon that delayed his trade from becoming official – Jrue Holiday is now a husband and Pelican. The trade, which sends Nerlens Noel and a future first-round pick to the 76ers, hinged on Holiday…

  15. Raptors to sign Tyler Hansbrough to two-year contract

    Jul 9, 2013, 9:25 PM EDT

    Tyler Hansbrough

    What are the Raptors doing? Trying to win, I guess. Despite predictions of mass tanking across the NBA next season, Toronto – which also rejected dumping the talented-but-overpaid Rudy Gay for cap relief and traded Andrea Bargnani (a move that helps with the cap and increases the Raptors’ chances of winning next season) – will…

  16. Five players who have stood out at the Orlando Summer League

    Jul 9, 2013, 2:17 PM EDT

    Kelly Olynyk

    Be careful about reading too much into success at NBA Summer League — the old adage is Summer League doesn’t tell you who can play in the NBA, only who cannot. Look at it this way, last year’s Las Vegas Summer League co-MVPs were Damian Lillard and Josh Selby. A future Rookie of the Year…

  17. Carmelo Anthony to the Lakers next summer? People are talking about it.

    Jul 9, 2013, 11:36 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    Especially without Dwight Howard sticking around, the Lakers are loaded with cap space next summer — right now only Steve Nash is on the books for the summer of 2014 (and they could waive him and use the stretch provision to provide more cap space). The Lakers will ink Kobe Bryant to a new, discounted…

  18. Chris Copeland leaving Knicks, headed to Pacers in two year deal

    Jul 6, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Chris Copeland

    Chris Copeland played his way out of New York. The Knicks 29-year-old rookie who had worked so hard to get to the NBA brought size, shooting and energy when he got on the court and averaged 8.7 points a game and shot 42.1 percent from three in the regular season. Against the Pacers in the…

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

    Jul 5, 2013, 7:43 PM EDT

    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…

  20. Report: Pacers to sign Donald Sloan

    Jul 3, 2013, 4:16 PM EDT

    Donald Sloan, Steve Novak, Raymond Felton

    The Pacers’ Hansbrough era appears to be coming to an end. First, the Pacers pulled Tyler Hansbrough’s qualifying offer. Now, they’ve replaced Ben Hansbrough as the team’s third point guard. Michael Pointer of the Indianapolis Star: Donald Sloan, who split time last season between New Orleans and Cleveland, has reached agreement on a multi-year contract…

  21. Pacers yank Tyler Hansbrough’s qualifying offer

    Jul 2, 2013, 4:18 PM EDT

    Tyler Hansbrough

    Tyler Hansbrough might have waited too long, or maybe he’ll just be free to get a larger offer. The Pacers extended Hansbrough a $4,135,391 qualifying offer in June, so Hansbrough had the option for the last couple days of accepting a one-year, $4,135,391 contract with Indiana. In return, the Pacers had the right to match…

  22. Report: Pacers finalizing deal to retain David West

    Jul 2, 2013, 1:09 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game One

    While other teams tried to get their foot in the door, it was always expected that David West would return to the Indiana Pacers. He was their top off-season priority. It looks like the two sides have almost got a deal done — a three-year deal with the third year being a team option, reports…

  23. C.J. Watson headed to the Indiana Pacers. That’s a good get.

    Jul 1, 2013, 4:27 PM EDT

  24. Report: Greg Oden draws interest from Heat, Spurs, Cavaliers, Celtics, Mavericks, Kings, Pacers and Grizzlies

    Jul 1, 2013, 10:56 AM EDT

    Greg Oden

    When are teams interested in signing someone who hasn’t played in four years? When it’s Greg Oden, who posted 16.7 points, 12.8 rebounds and 3.4 blocks per 36 minutes when he last played in 2009. Even though it’s such an extreme long shot he even approaches that level of production agagin, Oden, the former No.…

    David Lee

    The 2013 NBA playoffs were filled with many incredible moments: Ray Allen’s 3-pointer to send Game 6 of the NBA Finals to overtime, LeBron James making a game-winning layup with Roy Hibbert on the bench, Nate Robinson carrying the Bulls to a triple-overtime win and many more. One moment that might have appeared to deserve…
