    Jul 15, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Brandon Jennings

    Free agency has been open for more than two weeks now and most of the big names are gone, not just Dwight Howard but also guys like Andrew Bynum, Mike Dunleavy, Al Jefferson, Andrei Kirilenko, Quentin Richardson, Nick young and more. But there are a few name guys left on the market. Guys with flaws…

    Wesley Johnson

    The Lakers are in need of a lot of things at a very low price, as the team prepares for the season after next when it will have all the cap space in the world to spend on any available free agent they can convince to come to Los Angeles. Before then, they have to…

    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…

    LAS VEGAS — Austin Rivers hasn’t played in an NBA basketball game since March 4, after suffering a broken hand injury that ended his season.

  6. Lakers make it official, amnesty Metta World Peace

    Jul 11, 2013, 8:04 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Boston Celtics

    The Lakers are done with World Peace. As had been rumored for a while, the Lakers made it official on Thursday and amnestied Metta World Peace. That is not going to be popular with Lakers nation, who had grown to love the one guy who hustled and tried to play defense nightly even as the…

  8. Andrew Bynum has gained weight, not touched a ball in some time

    Jul 11, 2013, 2:08 PM EDT

    Andrew Bynum

    Let’s put it kindly — there is great skepticism around the league that Andrew Bynum can or will contribute much as an NBA player this season or ever again in the future. Yes, his knees that have been a chronic problem and kept him out all of last season. More than that, however, are questions about…

  9. Report: Mavericks to target Samuel Dalembert now that Andrew Bynum has signed with Cavaliers

    Jul 10, 2013, 9:16 PM EDT

    Samuel Dalembert

    Wednesday began with such promise in Dallas, but ultimately ended in some level of disappointment. The Mavericks began the day meeting with free agent big man Andrew Bynum. The club had its medical staff do some evaluations, and there was a lunch with Bynum’s agent and team executives where the early stages of contract negotiations…

  10. Reports: Andrew Bynum agrees to sign with Cavaliers

    bynum-flagrant-beasley

    That was fast. After meeting with the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday, Andrew Bynum has agreed to sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to multiple reports.

  12. Interesting draft note: If Bennett or Oladipo had fallen to No. 6, same Sixers/Pelican trade would have gone down

    Jul 9, 2013, 5:14 PM EDT

    2013 NBA Draft

    Just days before the 2013 NBA Draft Nerlens Noel was still the presumptive No. 1 pick and Anthony Bennett was thought to be the guy falling down draft boards. It was then that the brain trusts of Philadelphia and New Orleans came up with a trade that surprised a lot of people on draft night.…

  13. Tyreke Evans looking for stable role in New Orleans

    Jul 9, 2013, 12:06 PM EDT

    Tyreke Evans

    A few things made the last few seasons in Sacramento tough for Tyreke Evans. First, there were a series of injuries that slowed him down. There was a coaching change and just a general instability with the franchise as the Maloof era sputtered to its inevitable end. Then there was how Evans had different things…

  14. Andrew Bynum receives two-year, $24 million offer from the Cavaliers

    Jul 9, 2013, 12:13 AM EDT

    Andrew Bynum

    One of the more intriguing things yet to be determined in free agency is how the market is going to value Andrew Bynum. When healthy, Bynum is one of the game’s best at his position, an All-Star caliber player who can pay immediate dividends for his team at both ends of the floor. But after…

  15. Report: Mavericks hesitant to unload Shawn Marion’s salary

    Jul 8, 2013, 4:21 PM EDT

    Hornets Mavericks Basketball

    In a story about the Mavericks’ chase for Andrew Bynum (do you have to run that fast to catch him?), Eddie Sefko at the Dallas Morning News threw out an interesting little nugget: There are several other teams that have more cap space now than the Mavericks, who are very hesitant to jettison Shawn Marion…

    Adam Aron had been a very public face of the Sixers as CEO, with a presence on twitter where he even called out the team after an ugly loss. He said the Andrew Bynum trade should have worked. He tried to be a face for the fans. And now he’s out. The franchise made official…

  17. Report: Cavaliers, Mavericks leading contenders for Andrew Bynum

    Jul 8, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    76ers Bynum Basketball

    The question was never “would teams be interested in Andrew Bynum?” Two years ago when healthy he was in the “best center in the game” conversation. Guys like him do not come around often. The question was always “what kind of contract would he get?” We may find out soon, with the interest in him…

  18. Report: Atlanta Hawks target Monta Ellis

    Jul 7, 2013, 3:06 AM EDT

    Monta Ellis

    The Atlanta Hawks have made a couple free agent splashes this summer already, landing former Jazz forward Paul Millsap and sharpshooter Kyle Korver.

    Jul 6, 2013, 5:01 PM EDT

    Dorell Wright

Wright has agreed to a two-year deal worth $6 million to join the Portland Trail Blazers, according to multiple reports, including this one from…

    Jul 6, 2013, 11:04 AM EDT

    76ers Bynum Basketball

    Mark Cuban didn’t succeed in his Dwight Howard gambit, so now me may be about to roll the dice on another elite center… well, sometimes elite center sometimes flamenco dancer. Mavericks fans, how would you like to have Andrew Bynum on your team? Actually, it’s not that bad a gamble (we’ll get to that) and…

  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…

  22. Report Omer Asik ready to force a trade because of Dwight Howard

    Jul 5, 2013, 7:10 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard, Omer Asik

    Not everyone with the Rockets is pleased Dwight Howard has agreed to sign with Houston. Brian Windhorst of ESPN: https://twitter.com/WindhorstESPN/status/353283007282552833 How does Los Angeles sound, Omer? Because the Rockets don’t have the cap space to sign Howard, they must make other moves before officially signing him (unless he’s willing to take less money). That could…

  23. Kings’ brass visit Alabama with DeMarcus Cousins’ big payday looming

  24. Eric Gordon thinks there’s ‘a good to great chance’ he’ll be back with the Pelicans

    Jul 4, 2013, 10:30 PM EDT

    Eric Gordon

    The NBA franchise in New Orleans now known as the Pelicans has been plenty busy this offseason, but all of their moves have involved relatively big-name guards who have the ability to score. On the surface, that seems like an odd choice. Eric Gordon is in that position for the Pelicans at a salary of…
