  1. Report: Undrafted Maalik Wayns signs deal with 76ers

    Jul 30, 2012, 10:59 AM EST

    Big East Basketball Tournament - Villanova v Rutgers

    For a guy who grew up in Philadelphia then played his college ball at Villanova, signing with the 76ers would be a dream come true. That’s what the undrafted Maalik Wayns has done, according to the Times Herald. A source confirmed Saturday that Wayns has agreed to a free-agent deal with the 76ers. The deal…

  2. Lakers reportedly showing interest in Jodie Meeks

    Jul 27, 2012, 2:48 PM EST

    Jeremy Lin

    The Lakers are pretty set at starting two guard. Got a guy they kind of like there.   But if the goal is to keep Kobe Bryant’s minutes down — he averaged a ridiculous 38.5 last season for Mike Brown — you need a reliable backup. And while Andrew Goudelock and Darius Johnson-Odom are on…

  3. Here are all 39 NBA players taking part in Olympics

    Jul 27, 2012, 12:29 PM EST

    File photo of U.S. basketball Chairman Colangelo and the 2012 U.S. Olympic men's basketball team posing in Las Vegas

    The Olympic basketball tournament is loaded with NBA players. Loaded. There are 39, and that is just guys currently on rosters (there are a couple not on now that likely will be by the time camp opens. Here is a list of all the NBA players in the Olympic tournament. Not a coincidence that the…

  4. The Inbounds: Team USA and the meaning of London

    Jul 27, 2012, 11:15 AM EST

    Bryant and James of Team USA react during their men's exhibition basketball game against Team Argentina ahead of the London 2012 Olympic Games at Palau Sant Jordi arena in Barcelona

    It’s extremely difficult to measure what winning a gold medal does for a player, outside of you know, giving them the actual object and putting a line on a resume. When most people think Michael Jordan, 99 percent of them don’t think “Olympic Gold Medalist.” They think six-time NBA champion, the Greatest of all Time,…

  5. Gilbert Arenas’ old home for sale, complete with shark tank

    Jul 26, 2012, 9:20 AM EST

    Arenas shark tank

    Gilbert Arenas was fun. Because as fans we love guys who are wildly unpredictable. That’s different than saying you really wanted him as the anchor of your franchise, because his idea of fun crossed all kinds of lines at times. Basically vintage Arenas was great for fans and bad for locker rooms. But the Wizards…

  6. Sixers sign their rookies Harkless, Moultrie to contracts

    Jul 24, 2012, 3:13 PM EST

    2012 NBA Draft

    It’s that time of year when pen hits paper and a lot of deals we knew were set become official. That includes rookie deals, and the Wizards have inked both Moe Harkless and Arnett Moultrie, the team announced. Harkless moves into a crowded swingman rotation in Philly where he will have to fight for playing…

  7. Kevin Love finds minutes on Team USA slipping away

    Jul 24, 2012, 11:08 AM EST

    Kevin Love, Andres Nocioni

    On paper, Kevin Love should be playing increasingly key minutes for Team USA — he is second most logical center behind Tyson Chandler, his rebounding and outlet passing skills fit the up-tempo style Team USA wants to play, and on offense he can hit the three and pull opposing bigs away from the basket. But…

  8. Report: Tom Penn in lead to become new Philadelphia GM

    Jul 23, 2012, 12:37 AM EST

    tom penn

    You know Tom Penn as the cap guru and former right hand man of Kevin Pritchard in Portland when they were making smart moves. Or maybe you know him as the ESPN television personality who provided some insights into front office thinking for that network after the Trail Blazers let him go. Now you may…

  9. Sixers coach Collins: Kwame Brown is our starting center

    Jul 18, 2012, 11:34 AM EST

    Kwame Brown

    Sorry Sixers fans. I know I tried to defend the Kwame Brown signing to a degree, because he’s an average NBA journeyman center and you are paying him like one. It’s not a bad deal and if he’s playing 15 minutes a night off the bench. But if he is the starting five… well, that’s…

  10. The Inbounds: Steve Nash, the Lakers, and the lawlessness of the point guard wilderness

    Jul 17, 2012, 9:00 AM EST

    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. Enjoy. “How does Steve Nash help them stop Russell Westbrook or Tony Parker?’ That’s the standard reaction from skeptics to the…

  11. Sixers Silas undergoes facial surgery after Summer League fall

    Jul 16, 2012, 11:47 AM EST

    Xavier Silas

    It was the final day of the Orlando Summer League and Xavier Silas — an end of season call up by Philadelphia who was getting another look — was defending a point guard on the drive when center Solomon Jones came over for the block and elbowed Silas in the face accidentally. Silas suffered serious…

  12. Cavaliers could make an amnesty bid on Luis Scola

    Jul 14, 2012, 1:00 PM EST

    Luis Scola

    ESPN reports that the Cavaliers are considering making an amnesty bid on Luis Scola. The minimum bid on Scola’s $21 million remaining is $3 million the first season and a $10 million total. The Mavericks are also interested, despite picking up Elton Brand off the wire. The idea of the Cavs picking up Scola is…

    Philadelphia 76ers' Brand battles for rebound with New Jersey Nets' Petro and Morrow in their NBA basketball game in Newark

    Dallas fell short in its quest for another elite superstar to go with Dwight Howard this summer, but in the interim they have put together a solid roster. One where most of the players come off the books after this season. Elton Brand is the latest of those — Dallas won the biding process for…

  14. Report: Kwame Brown reaches two-year deal with 76ers

    Jul 13, 2012, 2:06 PM EST

    Kwame Brown

    Philadelphia cake shops, you’ve been warned. The Philadelphia 76ers have reached a two-year, $6 million deal to bring in Kwame Brown, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports and the NBC Sports Network. The second year is a player option. There is no chance Brown doesn’t pick up that option. Philly fans and bloggers are going…

  15. Report: Sixers Xavier Silas suffers serious head injury

    Jul 13, 2012, 1:47 PM EST

    Xavier Silas

    Xavier Silas, the former Northern Illinois star who was added to the Sixers Orlando Summer League roster, has reportedly suffered a pretty serious head injury in the final game in that league. Here is the tweet from Brian Levy, the Director of Player Personnel for the D-League’s Bakersfield Jam, who was on hand. (Hat tip…

  16. Anthony Davis officially in for Team USA. And no Cousins.

    Jul 13, 2012, 12:42 PM EST

    United States v Dominican Republic - Men's Exhibition Game

    LAS VEGAS — Before Anthony Davis’ fourth-quarter entrance into Thursday night’s Team USA demolition of the Dominican Republic, LeBron James grabbed him, said a few words hugged him and tried to pump him up. When Davis drained a three and was fouled on the play for a four-point play, the USA Bench erupted right next…

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

    Jul 13, 2012, 1:01 AM EST

    United States v Dominican Republic - Men's Exhibition Game

    LAS VEGAS — Exhibition games should be about experimentation, about learning things to help you later. Unfortunately, you can’t learn too much from Team USA’s 113-59 throttling of the Dominican Republic in Las Vegas We learned that teams are going to struggle with the athletes and pressure defense Team USA can bring. We learned that…

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

    Jul 12, 2012, 7:26 PM EST

    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…

  19. Lee, Mayo Timberwolves targets after Batum offer matched

    Jul 12, 2012, 3:48 PM EST

    O.J. Mayo, Andrew Bynum

    Minnesota used its amnesty provision on Darko Milicic, they are about to buy out Brad Miller and Martell Webster. They have cleared the way to make a big four-year, $45 million offer sheet to Portland’s Nicolas Batum. They tried to pressure Portland into a trade and that didn’t work, so they are going to call…

  20. Elton Brand hopes Mavericks claim him off waivers

    Jul 12, 2012, 8:56 AM EST

    Elton Brand

    For a veteran like Elton Brand, the process of being amnestied is unnerving — he has lost control of where he will play basketball next season. The Philadelphia 76ers used the amnesty clause on him to get the $18 million he is owed off their books (he still gets paid, it just doesn’t count against…

  21. Report: Lou Williams reaches agreement with Atlanta Hawks

    Jul 10, 2012, 5:42 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Philadelphia 76ers - Game Three

    Joe Johnson and his points are gone, headed to Brooklyn. Jamal Crawford has been gone for a while as the gunner off the bench for the Atlanta Hawks. The Hawks need some buckets from the perimeter. Enter Lou Williams. Williams, the 76ers leading scorer last season despite coming off the bench, has reached an agreement…

  22. Who are the most likely amnesty clause cuts? Hello Darko.

    Jul 9, 2012, 7:16 PM EST

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Sacramento Kings

    We already know Elton Brand will be amnestied in Philly. But come Wednesday (and for one week after that) what other guys are likely going to be sent packing with the amnesty clause this year? Larry Coon of ESPN put together a comprehensive list and here is what we know — there will likely be…

  23. 50 Observations about NBA Free Agency

    Jul 9, 2012, 12:21 PM EST

    New Jersey Nets v Atlanta Hawks

    From time to time, I drop random observations because it’s too long for a tweet and too short for a full post. Also because it allows me to crack jokes, which is really the reason I’m here. That and the money. Mostly the money. Anyway, it’s been a crazy week of free agency. Here are…

  24. USA’s versatile, athletic roster will be fun to watch. Will win a lot, too.

    Jul 7, 2012, 10:34 PM EST

    Blake Griffin arrives for a news conference announcing the players selected for the 2012 U.S. Olympic men's basketball team in Las Vegas

    Al Davis would have loved Team USA. Because speed kills. Team USA basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski coded it with words like “athleticism” and “versatility” — and those are accurate, too — but the makeup of Team USA is both lightning quick but with length. This is a team that that can run the floor, make…

  25. Griffin, Harden, Iguodala round out Team USA roster

    Jul 7, 2012, 7:32 PM EST
