  1. Jeff Teague doesn’t want Atlanta to match Milwaukee’s offer

    Jul 12, 2013, 11:19 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    NBA free agency is about the money. First, second and third. This is a business. But it’s also about feeling wanted. Players feel neglected and overlooked by the team they are on and suddenly here comes other teams telling them how special they are, now much they are wanted and needed, and by the way…

    Randy Foye

    We told you this could be coming on Monday — veteran two guard Randy Foye could be going from Utah to Golden State as an extension to the Andre Iguodala sign-and-trade to Golden State. Now that is all but official, it has been agreed to according to the Associated Press. Foye is a free agent…

  5. Report: Brandon Jennings for Jeff Teague? It’s one scenario being discussed.

    Jul 8, 2013, 10:39 AM EDT

    Brandon Jennings

    The most likely scenario out there has Monta Ellis landing in Atlanta next season; they are the clear and away frontrunners for his services. Ellis with the ball, Kyle Korver as the sharpshooter on the wing, Paul Millsap and Al Horford on the front line… that’s a solid playoff team in the East (albeit one…

  6. If Jazz guard Randy Foye agrees to Nuggets contract, Warriors could spend more in free agency

    Jul 8, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets guard Andre Iguodala drives past Utah Jazz guard Randy Foye during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Salt Lake City, Utah

    The Warriors will sign Andre Iguodala to a four-year, $48 million contract. Golden State will also trade Richard Jefferson, Andris Biedrins, Brandon Rush and draft picks to the Jazz for Kevin Murphy. That much we know. Utah guard Randy Foye, a free agent, might go to the Nuggets on a three-year, $9 million contract (with…

  7. Winners and losers to this point in NBA free agency

    Jul 7, 2013, 11:00 PM EDT

    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. We’re almost there, and plenty of the top names available have indeed been swooped up by teams looking to make a splash…

  8. 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. Those two could pair well with Al Horford in the paint. Does Monta Ellis? We may find out as the Hawks are targeting Ellis, reports Marc Stein at ESPN. With the future…

  9. Paul Millsap agrees to two-year deal with the Hawks

    Jul 6, 2013, 12:31 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Clippers

    The Utah Jazz knew that two of their best players would be unrestricted free agents this summer, and yet they played out all of last season without trading them to try and get anything of value in return. They didn’t bother to re-sign them, either. After Al Jefferson left for the greener pastures of the…

  10. 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…

  11. Report: Josh McRoberts reaches deal to re-sign with Bobcats

    Jul 5, 2013, 5:07 PM EDT

    Josh McRoberts

    Midseason Josh McRoberts was traded from Orlando to Charlotte for Hakim Warrick as two of the worst teams in the league rearranged the deck chairs on the Titanic. But McRoberts liked what he got in Charlotte — a starting role and nearly double the minutes. It showed on the court as he averaged what would…

  14. Bobcats to amnesty Tyrus Thomas

    Jul 5, 2013, 11:47 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Charlotte Bobcats

    21.7 21.0 18.8 13.8 Notice a pattern? Those are, in chronological order, the minutes per game for Tyrus Thomas during his four seasons with the Bobcats. Still just 26 years old, Thomas has faded into near-obscurity. He averaged career lows in points (4.8) and rebounds (2.3) per game this season, but the lowest point came…

  15. Report: Al Jefferson agrees to three-year deal with Bobcats

    Jul 4, 2013, 2:10 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Dallas Mavericks

    Al Jefferson was reportedly looking for a four-year deal worth in the neighborhood of $15 million per season in free agency. He also was said to be interested in waiting for the Dwight Howard domino to fall before choosing his destination, in case a contender became interested in retaining his services. As it turned out,…

  16. Report: Al Jefferson wants $15 million salary, will wait for Dwight Howard to sign

    Jul 3, 2013, 10:48 PM EDT

    Al Jefferson

    Al Jefferson signed a five-year, $65 million extension that paid him $15 million last season in the final year of the deal. Whenever teams offers a player so much money, there’s always a risk he rests on his laurels. Jefferson didn’t do that. Since getting that extension, he’s worked hard to develop his offensive game.…

  17. Report: Pistons want to trade for Rajon Rondo, Rudy Gay

    Jul 2, 2013, 7:07 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Boston Celtics

    The Pistons have two of the NBA’s most promising big men, Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe, and they’ve cleared more than $20 million in cap space this summer. They’re definitely in position to make a jump to the playoffs, which is what general manager Joe Dumars probably needs in the final season of his contract,…

  18. Jose Calderon meeting with Kings, one of many suitors

    Jul 2, 2013, 1:44 PM EDT

    Looks more like football as Toronto Raptors' Calderon races Sacramento Kings' Robinson up the court in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Toronto

    When the Pistons traded for Jose Calderon and his expiring contract, they immediately stressed they didn’t view him as a one-year rental. After years of subpar point guard play since they traded Chauncey Billups, Calderon brought playmaking skills to the position Brandon Knight and Rodney Stuckey couldn’t come close to matching. But Calderon and Andre…

    Jul 1, 2013, 10:35 AM EDT

    Gal Mekel

    The Dallas Mavericks need a point guard, especially since they are letting Darren Collison walk. Well, they’ve agreed to terms with one guy who can be their backup and reached out to Mo Williams and Jose Calderon to likely be the starter. We know that Israeli based Gal Mekel has agreed to terms on a…

  22. One dozen NBA free agents to watch (not named Howard or Paul)

    Jul 1, 2013, 3:51 AM EDT

    Josh Smith

    Chris Paul is going to stay a Clipper. Dwight Howard is going to do whatever it is Dwight Howard is going to do. But those two are not the only guys who became free agents at the stroke of midnight and we ventured into Monday. Here are a dozen other newly minted free agents worth…

  25. Report: Mo Williams won’t re-sign with Jazz unless he remains a starter

    Jun 29, 2013, 9:30 PM EDT

    Mo Williams

    Mo Williams is an unrestricted free agent this summer, and he apparently won’t re-sign with the Jazz as a backup point guard — he wants to be the starter. That’s the word out of Williams’ camp, anyway, and if true, he may want to start engaging in some contract negotiations with other teams. From Marc…
