  1. Report: Darko Milicic may leave Celtics to return to Europe, sick mother

    Nov 19, 2012, 3:48 PM EST

    Darko Milicic

    After a preseason when Celtics fans were high on him (this is why we say don’t read much into those games), Darko Milicic has been a non-factor for the Celtics. He played five minutes in the season opener and hasn’t sniffed the court since. Part of it is his mind is elsewhere — with his…

  2. Report: Heat now on top of Kenyon Martin’s list

    Nov 13, 2012, 10:23 AM EST

    Kenyon Martin

    Kenyon Martins remains a free agent. He had gone from saying he wanted more than the league minimum and was only going to play for a contender to saying he will play for the league minimum and he will play for anyone. But he’d still like to be in Miami, according to Ira Winderman of…

  3. Kenyon Martin says he will play for anyone. At league minimum.

    Nov 5, 2012, 10:01 AM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v San Antonio Spurs - Game Two

    Kenyon Martin doesn’t have an NBA team. Which seems a little strange — at age 34 last season he struggled a little with knee issues and that led to shooting struggles (he shot 44.8 percent last season, down from 51 percent the season before) and rebounding issues. His PER fell to 9.8. But his knee…

  4. Report: Antonio McDyess thinking about return to NBA

    McDYESS_ANTONIO

    Antonio McDyess, last seen coming off the Spurs bench and playing respectably if not well, is thinking about returning to the NBA after a year off. With teams always looking for help along the front line, and with his reputation as being good in the locker room, the 6’9” McDyess might get some attention. Adrian…

  5. Kenyon Martin wants back in NBA — for mini mid-level

    Oct 31, 2012, 5:30 PM EST

    Kenyon Martin

    Under the new CBA, a lot of quality veterans who were used to getting a few million to play have had to sign for less than they thought they were worth, taking veteran minimum deals. Kenyon Martin wouldn’t play that game, he wanted to get paid. Now Martin isn’t playing any game — no team…

  6. NBA season preview: L.A. Clippers

    Oct 16, 2012, 12:00 PM EST

    Blake Griffin, Chris Paul

    Last Season: Perhaps it was the start of a cultural change in Clipperland, or maybe it was simply the beginning of a very short-term spike of relative success. Either way, your 2011-12 Clippers were competitive, fun to watch, and a team that made its way into the playoffs — three qualities that have been completely…

    Oct 8, 2012, 9:00 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks

But not finding a guaranteed deal, he is taking his talents to the port city of Qingdao, China, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports.

  8. Report: Gilbert Arenas considering playing in China

    Sep 28, 2012, 12:26 PM EST

    Washington Wizards v Sacramento Kings

    Gilbert Arenas wants another shot in the NBA. He’s working out at the Lakers facilities. His agent is calling GMs all over the place. Arenas is telling gas station managers his plans and that’s somehow becoming a rumor. The truth — there are no calls for him. Teams are not interested. They weigh the off-court…

  10. Report: Lou Amundson agrees to deal with Timberwolves

    Sep 24, 2012, 4:02 PM EST

    Louis Amundson

    After looking at a few guys to come in as an off-the-bench big man for Minnesota, they made their choice. And sorry Timberwolves fans, it is not Anthony Tolliver. Minnesota and Lou Amundson reached terms on a one-year deal, tweets Chris Tomasson of Fox Sports Florida. Source tells me Lou Amundson to sign a 1-year…

  11. Report: Knicks, Celtics like Kenyon Martin, but money is issue

    Sep 18, 2012, 9:49 AM EST

    Kenyon Martin

    The Knicks are still looking to add one more backup power forward to the roster, and a lot of Knicks fans look out at the rather barren landscape of available free agents and see Kenyon Martin as the best option. He probably is. And the Knicks fans are not alone in seeing it. But this…

  12. Where in the world will Josh Howard play next?

    Sep 17, 2012, 9:42 AM EST

    Jazz forward Howard tries to get position on Spurs forward Leonard during their NBA basketball game in San Antonio, Texas

    Matt Barnes got inked but we still have a long list of veteran players out there waiting to sign a deal — Kenyon Martin, Mickael Pietrus, Louis Amundson, Leandro Barbosa, Anthony Tolliver, Darko Milicic. Josh Howard can be added to that list, also. Once a 19.9 points per game scorer for the Mavericks, last season…

  13. Just how much ink does Chris Andersen have? A lot.

    Sep 14, 2012, 6:25 PM EST

    chris-andersen tattoos

    Right now, Chris Andersen — the Birdman — is trying to find a team that wants to bring him in. He was amnestied by the Nuggets and has yet to find a new home. Like Kenyon Martin and others, he’s finding a dry market where the only offers are for the veteran minimum, and in…

  14. Kenyon Martin has suitors but still wants more than minimum

    Sep 14, 2012, 8:40 AM EST

    Kenyon Martin

    The phone of Kenyon Martin’s agent is ringing — teams are interested in him. But the offers are all the same — veteran minimum. And for a veteran who played well at times for the Clippers last season (8.9 points and 6.3 rebounds a game), he doesn’t want to play for the minimum anymore. Marc…

  15. Tracy McGrady worked out for Spurs, Knicks up next

    Sep 13, 2012, 12:47 PM EST

    Tracy McGrady

    Tracy McGrady is auditioning for jobs. Like a lot of veterans he is finding the financial realities of the new CBA are keeping teams from guaranteeing contracts for veterans, so he is out there working it trying to find a team that will sign him, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. Still searching for an…

  17. Winderman: NBA’s new fiscal reality has veterans considering minimums

    Aug 28, 2012, 9:08 PM EST

    Andray Blatche

    More than 20 teams still have all or part of their mid-level exception, be it the full $5 million, the $3.1 million taxpayer version or the $2.6 million post-cap-space variety. More than 10 still can put their $2 million bi-annual exception into play. And yet, now a month from the start of training camps, veterans…

  18. Report: Lou Amundson talking with Bobcats, Knicks interested

    Aug 8, 2012, 1:06 AM EST

    Louis Amundson

    And in today’s “I’m waiting because I don’t want to play for the veteran’s minimum” game we bring you energy big off the bench Lou Amundson. Amundson could be a nice role playing big off the bench for some team (like he was for the Pacers last season), but it’s about the money, according to…

  19. Jodie Meeks looking for more than veteran minimum deal

    Aug 7, 2012, 1:11 PM EST

    Jodie Meeks, Mario Chalmers

    We’ve been saying this for a week now, we’ve reached the “hey, wait, I’m worth more than the veteran minimum” portion of the summer. Jodie Meeks, come on down, you’re next at the podium. Meeks, who started 50 games for the 76ers last season, is talking to the Lakers, reports the Los Angeles Times. However,…

  20. Report: Kenyon Martin talking to Nets, Lakers

    Aug 6, 2012, 1:51 PM EST

    Kenyon Martin

    Things haven’t really changed that much on the Kenyon Martin front — he wants to get paid, not the league minimum but real money. And that’s not out there. The Knicks might want him back at the minimum, but that’s not who Martin is talking to, according to Sam Amick at Sports Illustrated. Kenyon Martin,…

  21. The Birdman would play for veteran minimum… in New York?

    Tattoo artists of New York, don’t get your hopes up too high yet, but a big new canvas could be coming to town… if you can find some space on it. But like we said, don’t get your hopes up yet. We’re a long way from knowing how this story ends. Chris Andersen — the…

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks

    We have made it through the bulk of free agency. Fans are always looking for the next, best thing, the guy who can come in and make a difference. It’s now August and time to be honest — any guy who can really help your team has already been picked up. There are a few…

  23. Report: Knicks like Kenyon Martin, but he wants to be paid

    Aug 2, 2012, 5:22 PM EST

    Kenyon Martin

    The Knicks would like to add a backup power forward to the roster, someone who can come in off the bench and give them some energy, defense and a few points. There are a few guys out there, but the Kenyon Martin seems to fit pretty well with the Knicks style and what they want…

  24. Winderman: Despite Dwightmare, we’ve reached NBA slow season

    Aug 1, 2012, 1:34 PM EST

    Dwight Howard

    In a non-Dwight year, this is when it tends to stop, in August. As an NBA executive recently explained, there tend to be four stages to the offseason when it comes to personnel moves: – The start of the free-agency period and the resulting immediate frenzy. – The period shortly thereafter when offer sheets are…

  25. Clippers to quickly, quietly sign Blake Griffin to 5-year max extension

    Jun 30, 2012, 3:59 PM EST

    Blake Griffin

    This is about as much of a surprise as Tom Cruise burning through another marriage. The Clippers top July 1 free agent priority will be signing star forward Blake Griffin to a max extension to his rookie deal. And it sounds like that is going to happen no problem, reports Ramona Shelburne at ESPNLosAngeles.com. The…
