    San Antonio Spurs v Phoenix Suns

    Welcome to The Inbounds, touching on a big idea of the day. It could be news, it could be history, it could be a tangent, it could be love. OK, it’s probably not love.

    Jul 17, 2012, 7:54 AM EDT

    O. J. Mayo

    The NBA Summer League is already through four days of basketball, leaving those around the world clamoring for non-Team USA basketball just six more days of games until the annual extravaganza is complete.

  6. Brazil provides big test for Team USA Monday. Literally big.

    Jul 16, 2012, 12:11 PM EDT

    Tyson Chandler

    It is the one weakness for Team USA — after Tyson Chandler there are no other true centers on the USA Basketball roster due to injuries. In The USA’s first game, against the Dominican Republic, coach Mike Krzyzewski tried Kevin Love, LeBron James and seemingly everyone but Chris Paul at the five spot. The Dominicans…

    Welcome to The Inbounds, touching on a big idea of the day. It could be news, it could be history, it could be a tangent, it could be love. OK, it’s probably not love. Enjoy. Sometime last Wednesday, after yet another round on Twitter battling the Brooklyn faithful (and they are a faithful lot for…

  8. Are NBA teams giving out “foolish” contracts? Yes. Lockout couldn’t stop that.

    Jul 16, 2012, 8:02 AM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v Atlanta Hawks

    NBA fans are shaking their heads when they see Jeremy Lin about to get $25 million over three years. Or when they see Brook Lopez getting a max contract. Or JaVale McGee not signing a $50 million deal while seeking more. Or countless more deals since the start of free agency. Fans thinking pretty much…

    The NBA Summer League season continued on Sunday with seven more games of players looking to reach the next level by way of a couple solid exhibition games in lovely Las Vegas. It doesn’t seem like anyone is a can’t miss signee quite yet, but the odds began to favor a few players that have…

  10. Deron Williams wants no part of the Dream Team vs. 2012 debate

    Jul 15, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    US Roster Basketball

    It’s easy to get sucked up into the debate. It’s compelling, right? The best team arguably ever assembled, but held up in spite of the vast differential in athleticism, conditioning, and speed of the game. The modern team held up as a contradictory juxtaposition, a contrarian’s dream, with Kobe, LeBron, and KD at the forefront.…

  11. Joe Johnson says the Nets are ‘definitely’ better than the Knicks. Here we go.

    Jul 14, 2012, 5:30 PM EDT

    Jul 14, 2012, 4:01 PM EDT

    Kris Humphries

    He might have gone to Orlando. Then there were talks with Cleveland to facilitate a bigger trade with Orlando. Charlotte reached out and wanted to talk deal.

  13. Report: Nuggets offer JaVale McGee five years, $50 million

    Jul 13, 2012, 10:09 AM EDT

    JaVale McGee

    Athletic big men in the NBA get paid. Actually, the better way to phrase that is NBA big men get over paid. It’s simple supply and demand, there just aren’t many of them. Enter JaVale McGee. Denver traded for McGee (from Washington) in the middle of last season and got 10.3 points and 5.8 rebounds…

  14. Team USA experiments its way to blowout 113-59 win

    Jul 13, 2012, 1:01 AM EDT

    United States v Dominican Republic - Men's Exhibition Game

    LAS VEGAS — Exhibition games should be about experimentation, about learning things to help you later.

We learned that…

  15. Winderman: Max contracts and amnesty, have the owners learned anything?

    Jul 12, 2012, 7:26 PM EDT

    Brook Lopez

    With Elton Brand about to come off the market and Luis Scola about to go on the market, we’re reminded of why there is an NBA amnesty process in the first place: because of large-scale contracts that were shortsighted. And then we have Brook Lopez, Roy Hibbert and Eric Gordon getting maximum-scale offers this summer…

Jerry Sloan on Portland: “I talked to them yesterday. But it just didn’t work…

  17. Report: Moving on from Howard deal, Nets still shopping Brooks

    Jul 12, 2012, 9:49 AM EDT

    MarShon Brooks, Shannon Brown

    Anyone surprised that the Nets’ house of cards trade efforts to land Dwight Howard fell apart wasn’t watching closely the past year. Yes, it got closer this time around, but it took two other teams and 11 players — many on sign-and-trade deals — all to agree just to get it that close. It was…

  18. Report: Pacers to offer Gerald Green three-year contract

    Jul 11, 2012, 10:00 PM EDT

    Gerald Green, Kris Humphries

    This would be a big bet on what could be. It would also make the Pacers the most dunktastic team east of the Clippers.

  20. Reports: Nets reach deal with Brook Lopez

    Jul 11, 2012, 6:00 PM EDT

    Brook Lopez

    Jul 11, 2012, 1:55 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    At some point the roulette wheel will stop spinning, the ball will stop bouncing around and find it’s slot, and Dwight Howard is going to get traded. Promise. It’s going to happen someday. While it feels close, like it could happen today, we’re not there yet. For now, the Nets have moved back to the…

  23. It’s decision time in Brooklyn — do they re-sign Lopez now?

    Jul 11, 2012, 10:22 AM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v Atlanta Hawks

    If the Dwight Howard trade comes down in the next 24 to 48 hours it is because of this — everybody had to move on with their “Plan B” if Howard wasn’t coming. Nowhere is that more evident than Brooklyn. The Nets have been Howard’s preferred destination and the franchise has spent the better part…

  24. It’s official: Deron Williams signs with Nets, is very rich

    Jul 11, 2012, 7:45 AM EDT

    Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    Deron Williams will say this wasn’t about the money, and to a degree that is true — he would have made a lot of money wherever he chose to play. So really, him deciding to stay with the Brooklyn Nets was about the franchise and where he wanted to play. But it is still a…
