    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.

    Ronny Turiaf has agreed to a two-year deal to join the Minnesota Timberwolves, his agent Mark Bartelstein announced in a blast to several media outlets, including the Minnesota StarTribune.

  5. Pistons won’t amnesty Charlie Villanueva

    Jul 11, 2013, 6:36 PM EDT

    Charlie Villanueva

    The Pistons already made their big move – signing Josh Smith – and their small moves (signing Chauncey Billups and Luigi Datome and re-signing Will Bynum). They might still have a little cap room left to make another small signing, but they’re already over the roster limit including their draft picks, so adding the caliber…

  6. Report: Lamar Odom being investigated in paparazzo incident

    Jul 11, 2013, 3:48 PM EDT

    Lamar Odom

    The paparazzi are part of life for celebrities in Los Angeles. You can’t hide from them, particularly if you are 6’10” and married to Khloe Kardashian. Lamar Odom should be very used to it by now after his time in Los Angeles. Now Odom is being investigated as part of an incident with a paparazzo…

  7. Report: Ronny Turiaf could be headed to Minnesota, too.

    Jul 11, 2013, 3:11 PM EDT

    Ronny Turiaf,  Matt Barnes

    Does it seem to anyone else like Minnesota is signing every available free agent the last 48 hours? Veteran big man Ronny Turiaf could be part of that mix, reports Marc Stein at ESPN. He says the Timberwolves are the “clear frontrunner” to sign Turiaf, certainly for the league minimum. In his eight NBA seasons…

  9. Kendall Marshall looking to prove he belongs during Summer League with Suns

    Jul 10, 2013, 10:26 PM EDT

    Kendall Marshall

    PHOENIX — Kendall Marshall was selected by the Suns with the 13th overall pick in last summer’s draft, but a chance to take the reigns as the team’s starting point guard has been far from guaranteed due to a combination of his need to develop, along with the constant personnel additions the team has made…

    Jul 10, 2013, 1:52 AM EDT

    Jordan Farmar Lakers

    If the Lakers are not going to be very good next year (and they’re not) they might as well be interesting and bring back some guys that fans like. Say, for example, Jordan Farmar. The guy who went to Taft High School in the beautiful San Fernando Valley, played his college ball at UCLA, was…

    There’s a reason you haven’t seen a press conference with Dwight Howard holding up a Houston Rockets jersey, or similar events involving Josh Smith in Detroit or Eric Bledsoe in Phoenix. Once free agency in the NBA officially begins after midnight on July 1, there is a moratorium period in place where teams may negotiate…

  15. Report: Clippers speaking to veteran Antawn Jamison

    Jul 8, 2013, 4:49 PM EDT

    Antawn Jamison

    Antawn Jamison was frustrated last season with the way he was used — and often not used — in the Lakers constantly-changing rotations. But the 37-year-old also showed he could still shoot the rock — 36 percent from three, 46 percent overall. He can contribute to a team in a limited role. And that team…

    Lamar Odom and Pau Gasol back on the front lines for the Lakers? It’s not going to be the same as 2010, but there are talks going on according to a couple reports. That starts with this from Mike Bresnahan at the Los Angeles Times. They are intrigued at the chance of getting Lamar Odom…

  17. Who’s been the most successful player after leaving the Lakers?

    Jul 8, 2013, 9:03 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard Shaquille O'Neal

    When Shaquille O’Neal signed with the Lakers, Jerry West took him to the Staples Center Forum and showed him the retired jerseys hanging from the rafters – including those of Wilt Chamberlain, Magic Johnson, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Elgin Baylor and West himself. Great players tend to find there way onto the Lakers, not out of Los…

    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.

  19. Clippers agree to one-year deal with Ryan Hollins

    Jul 7, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Los Angeles Clippers

    The Clippers have had a very successful offseason. They’ve signed Chris Paul to a max contract, re-signed Matt Barnes, traded for Jared Dudley and J.J. Redick to get help on the wing and some solid perimeter shooting, and replaced Eric Bledsoe with Darren Collison as a backup to Paul at a very reasonable price. They can’t…

  20. Darren Collison agrees to two-year deal with the Clippers

    Jul 6, 2013, 11:01 PM EDT

    Darren Collison

    When the Clippers engaged in the three-team deal that sent dynamic point guard Eric Bledsoe to Phoenix in exchange for Jared Dudley and J.J. Redick, they improved at the wing and shooting guard positions but suffered a substantial loss in terms of a capable backup to Chris Paul. The Clippers continued their shrewd offseason decision-making…

  21. 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…

    Jul 5, 2013, 5:38 PM EDT

    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…

    Jul 5, 2013, 4:48 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Six

    The Clippers look like a deep team that just keeps getting deeper. You know that puts a smile on Doc Rivers face. Matt Barnes is going to return to the Clippers with a three-year, $11-12 million deal (total), reports Marc Spears at Yahoo Sports. Barnes averaged 10.6 points a game in just less than 26…
