  1. Draft trade: Tyler Zeller traded to Cavaliers for three picks

    Jun 28, 2012, 9:35 PM EDT

    NCAA Basketball Tournament - Kansas v North Carolina

    The first trade of the draft moves a reliable big man to Cleveland, where he ideally can provide some balance to what the Cavs hope is a dynamic back court. Dallas, they get a few more picks. The first trade of a quiet NBA Draft night (relative to what was expected) has Dallas selecting then…

  2. Dwyane Wade needs knee surgery, withdraws from Olympics

    Jun 28, 2012, 4:14 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade Team USA Olympics

    That Dwyane Wade played as well as he did through the Heat’s title run considering how bad his left knee was in an impressive feat. And his knee was bad. Wade has learned he will need knee surgery and today called USA Basketball president Jerry Colangelo and coach Mike Krzyzewski to withdraw from Team USA…

  3. Nowitzki says he’d love to have Deron Williams in Dallas. Ya think?

    Jun 28, 2012, 2:19 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    The recruitment of Deron Williams is picking up steam, and we haven’t even gotten to July 1 yet. The Nets put a big billboard wishing Williams a happy birthday in front of his house. Delonte West has been on twitter trying to recruit Williams to Boston despite the fact West himself is now a free…

  4. Nash keeps free agent cards close to vest, but likes Knicks over Nets

    Jun 28, 2012, 10:47 AM EDT

    Steve Nash

    All speculation about where Steve Nash will land as a free agent shares one major flaw — Steve Nash doesn’t know yet. No doubt he has some preliminary thoughts, but speaking at his annual charity soccer game in New York he wasn’t really spilling any information. Via Marc Spears of Yahoo. “You can go down…

  5. Kris Humphries may think he’s worth more than he actually is

    Jun 27, 2012, 5:37 PM EDT

    Kris Humphries

    Kris Humphries — somehow the most hated man in the NBA, because he married poorly — is a free agent. He can bring 13.8 points and 11 rebounds, some good and efficient production, to the highest bidder. But what Humphries thinks that bid should be and what the rest of the NBA thinks could be…

  6. It’s official: Deron Williams did not pick up option, now fun begins

    Jun 27, 2012, 11:32 AM EDT

    Deron Williams

    Deron Williams will be a free agent. In a move long expected, Williams did not opt in and pick up the last year of his deal with the Brooklyn Nets, Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News tweeted. This is a business move, even if he stays with the Nets he makes more by…

  7. Report: Clippers, Mavericks talking Lamar Odom trade

    Jun 27, 2012, 1:51 AM EDT

    Lamar Odom

    Lamar Odom back with the Clippers? Well, he wants to go somewhere he is comfortable and Los Angeles is that. And he wants to play for a team that could go deep in the playoffs, and the Clippers are that. Or, the Clippers could just buy him out and save some cash. But the Clippers…

  8. Report: Mavericks fear Deron Williams leaning toward Nets

    Jun 26, 2012, 11:19 PM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v Atlanta Hawks

    Mark Cuban and the Mavericks gambled — with the new luxury tax provisions looming they knew they needed to strip down their salary in the next couple years or pay a steep price. They had a window last year to do that, so unlike what most owners would have done, Cuband didn’t get the band…

  9. A sign the Nets really want Deron Williams. Literally a sign.

    Jun 26, 2012, 12:19 PM EDT

    Deron Williams birthday

    It’s down to Brooklyn and Dallas. Deron Williams is the best free agent on the market this summer and reportedly he either stays with the Nets and leads them into Brooklyn, or he heads to his home town of Dallas, teams up with Dirk Nowiztki and hangs with Mark Cuban. The Nets want Williams to…

  10. Report: Deron Williams will only choose between Dallas and Brooklyn

    Jun 24, 2012, 9:13 AM EDT

    Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    They are the obvious choices, and now, it would appear, they are the only choices. ESPN’s Marc Stein reports: When NBA free agency begins at midnight July 1, Brooklyn Nets star guard Deron Williams will be choosing from a two-team list that only features the Nets and the Dallas Mavericks, according to sources close to…

  11. Which teams could crash the Thunder/Heat finals next year?

    Jun 22, 2012, 1:47 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat - Game Five

    These finals didn’t feel like a one-time thing. One year from now the Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder could well be back on the NBA’s biggest stage. This is a budding rivalry. Between LeBron James and Kevin Durant. Between the flashy East Coast city and the solid Midwestern city. Miami’s stars are in their…

  12. Heat, Thunder favored by oddsmakers to return to the Finals

    Jun 22, 2012, 1:01 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game One

    The season hasn’t even been over for 24 hours yet, but you can already get some action down on who will win the 2013 NBA title. And not surprisingly, at this ridiculously early stage, the Heat and the Thunder are equal 5-2 favorites to win the championship next season. The Bulls are next in line…

  13. Andre Miller having discussions about return to Denver

    Jun 19, 2012, 5:37 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Five

    There’s an interesting free agent point guard class. Deron Williams is the big catch while Steve Nash could be a great short-term boost to some team. Then there are interesting players who could really help the right team. Like Andre Miller, the veteran point who was in Denver last year. Ty Lawson is the future…

  14. Sessions opts out, becomes free agent; Lakers need a PG again

    Jun 19, 2012, 12:29 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Lakers

    That turned out to be the definition of a rental… Lakers point guard Ramon Sessions — who the team picked up at the trade deadline, sending their first-round pick to Cleveland — has opted out of his deal and will become a free agent, reports Mike Bresnahan of the Los Angeles Times. He was to…

  15. Jason Terry wants more than one-year deal with Mavericks

    Jun 18, 2012, 3:06 PM EDT

    NBA: Dallas Mavericks at Atlanta Hawks

    Dallas is going to be reshaping its roster this summer. They’d like that to be ideally with Deron Williams running the point, but however it all goes down there will be changes in Big D. Jason Terry could be one of those. He is a free agent, one Dallas would like to bring back. But…

  16. Berri’s 10 most overpaid players list has hits, misses

    Jun 18, 2012, 2:16 PM EDT

    kobe-game-3-thunder

    It’s a fun mental exercise to make us feel smarter than GMs — who are the 10 most overpaid players in the NBA? Dave Berri — the co-author of The Wages of Wins and the economics professor who has consulted with NBA teams — came up with a list for CNBC that got a lot…

  17. Jeff Green’s agent says things are going great for Jeff Green on the free agent market. Yeah.

    Jun 17, 2012, 6:30 PM EDT

    Jeff Green

    You have to be rooting for Jeff Green. The Oklahoma City scapegoat before Russell Westbrook took over the mantle, Green was traded to Boston with huge expectations, and before he could settle in, a serious heart condition that proved to be life-threatening ended his season and put his life in danger. Now he’s on the…

  18. 2012 NBA Finals Game 3: 20 observations as the series shifts to South Beach

    Jun 16, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game Two

    Here are twenty observations about the 2012 NBA Finals through two games as the series shifts to Miami for a three-game set. 1. First, and really, this can’t be stressed enough, the 2-3-2 format is horrible. I get why. I do. You don’t want the Finals dragging in for an entire month. But here’s the…

  19. Wade: Durant playing in Oklahoma City “dims his light a little”

    Jun 15, 2012, 11:20 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Oklahoma City Thunder – Game Two

    Kevin Durant is one of the NBA’s biggest, most marketable stars. He’s already landing national commercials — “Doodle jump? Man, that’s messed up.” — has a big Nike deal and this summer will star in what promises to be a delightfully awful movie “Thunderstruck.” All at age 23. But he could be even bigger off…

  20. Gerald Wallace to opt out with Nets, become free agent

    Jun 13, 2012, 8:11 PM EDT

    Gerald Wallace

    So you traded the No. 6 overall pick in this draft for… Gerald Wallace. At the trade deadline the Nets gave up what became the No. 6 pick in the deepest draft in years to Portland for Wallace. The same Wallace who had a player option for next season. He confirmed what we all expected,…

  21. Wade says LeBron having to cover Durant good for Miami

    Jun 12, 2012, 12:26 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat

    It’s one of the best parts of these NBA finals — Kevin Durant and LeBron James are going to be matched up on each other. The two best players in the game today going head-to-head. It’s not going to happen all the time (expect cross matching, the Heat will want LeBron on Durant at key…

  22. Report: Kris Humphries talking to feds claiming extortion

    Jun 12, 2012, 1:19 AM EDT

    kris-humphries

    Kris Humphries really knows how to pick them. The man vaulted from solid power forward to over-saturated pop culture stardom by marrying (then 72 days later divorcing) Kim Kardashian is now having problems with another former girlfriend. Trouble that reportedly required him to go to the feds. From TMZ (via IamaGM.com): Kris Humphries’ lawyers had…

  23. How Brendan Haywood’s contract structure could help the Mavs reload

    Jun 10, 2012, 4:00 PM EDT

    Brendan Haywood, Darko Milicic

    The Dallas Morning News shared an interesting note about Brendan Haywood‘s seemingly albatross contract that could be huge this summer. Haywood has what one NBA executive called “the best spread provision in the NBA” in his contract. In layman’s terms, any team that waives Haywood can spread out the payments for the remainder of his…

  24. Report: Bobcats are shopping No. 2 pick around

    Jun 8, 2012, 9:57 AM EDT

    Image (1) bobcats_logo-thumb-250x182-19284.jpg for post 3934

    There is a lock No. 1 pick in this draft, Anthony Davis is a likely franchise player that any general manager would take without thinking. But then it gets tough — there are a lot of good players, a lot of depth, but every guy left has question marks. Nobody else is a lock. Kentucky’s…

  25. Don’t expect Lakers to land Deron Williams or Lamar Odom

    Jun 7, 2012, 10:58 AM EDT

    Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    When Lakers’ fans dream, they dream big. With it clear they needed some changes to the roster after getting bounced in the second round for the second consecutive year, they thought big moves, not tweaks. One of those big moves — get free agent Deron Williams. He fills a need at the point guard spot…
