  • Udonis Haslem signs one-year deal with Heat
    Udonis Haslem has signed a one-year, minimum deal to return to the Heat.

    Advice: This has been expected for two weeks and Thursday morning owner Mickey Arison tweeted out "UD" with a party hat emoji, so the captain is back. He's basically just going to be an extension of the coaching staff in what will be his 15th season. 20 minutes ago
  • Troy Williams agrees to 3-year deal w/ HOU
    Troy Williams has agreed to a 3-year deal to stay with the Houston Rockets.

    Advice: The first year of the deal is fully guaranteed, but he will have to earn the second and third seasons. Williams played well in stints with the Rockets and Grizzlies last season, but he really made an impression in Vegas during the Summer League with averages of 22.0 points, 3.2 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 2.2 steals and 2.4 treys. The 22-year-old wing looks like he's ready to contribute next season, so he'll be in the mix to fill the void left by Sam Dekker. Today, 10:13 am
  • Guerschon Yabusele still in Boston's plans
    Guerschon Yabusele is still in Boston's plans according to Jay King of

    Advice: The Celtics have 14 players under contract for 2017-18, so Yabusele still has a chance to earn the 15th and final spot. The 6-foot-8, 265-pound forward is an intriguing prospect with lots of two-way potential, but he's unlikely to be a significant part of the rotation right out of the gate. He's currently recovering from surgery to remove bone spurs from the top of both feet, but he's targeting training camp for his return. Today, 9:31 am
  • Matt Costello to join Spurs on 2-way deal
    Matt Costello will sign a two-way contract with the San Antonio Spurs.

    Advice: This means he can spend up to 45 days in the NBA next season and the rest of his time with the Austin Spurs in the G-League. The 23-year-old PF went undrafted in 2016, but impressed at this year's Summer League with averages of 8.6 points, 8.9 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.4 blocks. Today, 7:14 am
  • Lillard: A 'real possibility' Melo joins POR
    Damian Lillard said he's reached out to Carmelo Anthony and said it's a "real possibility" that Anthony could join the Blazers.

    Advice: The Blazers reportedly have made it clear they won't be involved in a Melo trade unless they're the ones getting the All-Star forward. Lillard isn't usually the recruiting type, but C.J. McCollum has touched on this subject and even posted a photoshopped picture of Anthony in a Blazers uniform. Anthony does have a no-trade clause and several reports say he wants to go to Houston, so the Rockets should be considered as the frontrunners. Yesterday, 2:24 pm
  • DeMarre Carroll excited he was traded
    DeMarre Carroll said he was excited to get traded from the Raptors.

    Advice: "It was like a rush of joy just ran through my body," Carroll said when he found out about the deal. Coach Kenny Atkinson was with Carroll in their Atlanta days and Carroll said Atkinson really helped him on cutting and playing on the move. "Me being in a system where the coach gets me and now I can do what I do, play defense and shoot the three ball, I feel like this is the best environment for me," Carroll added. The Nets are likely to go young and Carroll's knee injuries have held him back, so he's not the best fantasy target. Yesterday, 1:52 pm
  • Blake Griffin expects to be ready for camp
    Blake Griffin (toe surgery) said he's met with five foot specialists this summer and they believe that being fully cleared for training camp is a "realistic possibility."

    Advice: Griffin added that he's hoping to get back on the floor for non-contact work in the next few weeks, so he appears to be trending in a very positive direction following his May 1 surgery. There was a report in late-June speculating that Griffin might not be ready for the start of the season and that he could be out until December, but Ramona Shelburne of ESPN refuted that story, and it seems that the five foot specialists that met with Griffin are in agreement with Ramona's sources. Yesterday, 10:41 am
  • Watson impressed with Dragan Bender's growth
    Earl Watson was particularly impressed with Dragan Bender's play during Summer League.

    Advice: "I think we saw amazing growth from Bender," said Watson. "From the way he started to the way he finished, he was aggressive, making plays, getting to the rim, hitting threes and just being a playmaker." Aside from only connecting on 39.4 percent of his shots, Bender had a solid showing at Summer League with averages of 14.2 points, 6.0 boards and 2.4 dimes per contest. He's reportedly added 20 pounds to his frame and the Suns want to utilize him more at center next season, but he still doesn't necessarily have a clear path to minutes with the current construction of the roster. Yesterday, 7:47 am
  • CLE nearly pulled off a trade for Paul George
    The Cavs reportedly nearly pulled off a trade for Paul George, but the Pacers backed out at the last minute.

    Advice: "Koby Altman was very close to a deal on June 30th for Paul George. It was so close, in fact, that Indiana was about to give permission to Paul George to get on the phone with Dan Gilbert," said Adrian Wojnarowski. "Indiana backed out of it and did the Oklahoma City deal." This report isn't quite as discouraging as the Jimmy Butler rumor because it was the Pacers who ultimately pulled out of the deal, but the Cavs not making any obvious improvements this offseason has to have LeBron James at odds with Cleveland management. Yesterday, 7:41 am
  • Carmelo Anthony ready to leave New York
    Carmelo Anthony has made it clear to New York management that he no longer wants to be a Knick, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

    Advice: "Carmelo Anthony has made it clear to [the Knicks]: I want to go to Houston, I am not interested in talking to you about being reincorporated back into this New York roster," said Woj. "Houston is now prepared for the fact that these negotiations with the Knicks could run through August, September, into possibly the start of training camp." Cleveland has been rumored to have an interest in Anthony, but they can't really offer New York anything they're interested in, and Melo won't waive his no-trade clause to go to Portland, so it seems all but a certainty that Anthony is headed for a reunion with Mike D'Antoni in Houston. Tuesday, 1:03 pm
  • Nerlens Noel waiting on legit offer from DAL
    Nerlens Noel is "disappointed" with how contract negotiations have gone with the Mavericks.

    Advice: "We're very disappointed with where things stand," Noel's agent, Happy Walters said. "Nerlens loves Dallas and spent June there working out, but we're still waiting on a serious offer." Noel is a restricted free agent, so Dallas will be able to match any offer he receives on the open market, but there are very few teams out there with both cap space and a need for a big man, so Dallas would be wise to wait this thing out. There likely won't be a resolution any time soon, but if an opposing offer doesn't come in and Noel doesn't like what Dallas offers, we could see him take the qualifying offer. Tuesday, 12:06 pm
  • Willie Reed agrees to deal with the Clippers
    Willie Reed has reportedly agreed to a one-year, $1.5 million deal with the Clippers.

    Advice: Reed will have a similar role in Los Angeles to the one he had with Miami last season, operating as DeAndre Jordan's primary backup. His minutes will likely be in the teens on most nights, so Reed won't be on the floor enough to make any meaningful contributions in fantasy hoops. Tuesday, 11:39 am
  • Report: SA working on deal with Pau Gasol
    The Spurs are reportedly working to finalize a deal with unrestricted free agent Pau Gasol.

    Advice: Gasol opted out of his contract back in June, but he did that to free up cap space for the Spurs, and the narrative has always been that he would eventually re-up with San Antonio on a long-term deal. Gasol was a top-75 option with the Spurs last season despite only playing 25.4 minutes a night, contributing averages of 12.4 points, 7.8 boards, 2.4 dimes, 0.9 triples and 1.1 blocks per contest. However, we'll likely see a slight regression in those numbers during his age-37 season. Tuesday, 11:31 am
  • Anthony not interested in joining the Blazers
    Carmelo Anthony is not currently willing to waive his no-trade clause to clear the way for a trade to Portland, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

    Advice: The Knicks and Rockets had been trying to find additional teams to help facilitate a deal that allowed Anthony to land in Houston. However, it has been reported that the Blazers want to acquire Melo themselves. With new GM Scott Perry now in New York, the Knicks put a pause on all trade talks and plan to sit down with Anthony shortly and figure out exactly what his preference is going forward. Tuesday, 8:34 am
  • Kevin Seraphin's contract to be guaranteed
    The Pacers are expected to guarantee Kevin Seraphin's full contract for the 2017-18 season.

    Advice: Indiana has until August 1st to make its final decision, but GM Kevin Pritchard told reporters that the team currently has 14 guaranteed contracts, which means they have likely decided to hold on to Seraphin. He averaged 4.7 points and 2.9 rebounds in 49 games for Pacers last season. He may see a slight increase in his playing time next season, but most likely not enough to warrant consideration in standard fantasy leagues. Tuesday, 7:57 am
  • LeBron James 'concerned' about Cavs offseason
    LeBron James is reportedly "concerned" with how the Cavs' offseason has played out this summer.

    Advice: James was expecting the Cleveland front office to take an aggressive approach in recruiting talent after falling in five games to the Warriors in the 2017 NBA Finals, but instead, owner Dan Gilbert parted ways with GM David Griffin and VP of basketball operations Trent Redden just days before the draft and free agency. James was particularly perturbed by the timing of Griffin's departure, as the Cavs' former GM was reportedly "close" to striking a deal for Jimmy Butler, so James' frustration is certainly understandable. Don't be surprised if these issues resurface during James' free agency in 2018. Monday, 3:13 pm
  • Paul Pierce retires as a Celtic
    Paul Pierce signed a non-guaranteed contract with Boston on Monday so that he can retire as a Celtic.

    Advice: "We're honored that Paul has chosen to retire as a Celtic. He is among the very best Celtics -- a champion on and off the court." said Celtics governor and managing partner, Wyc Grousbeck. "We congratulate Paul on his Hall of Fame career, and look forward to seeing his number raised to the rafters of TD Garden." Through 15 years with the Celtics, Pierce produced averages of 21.8 points, 6.0 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 1.4 steals per game, and he'll finish second on Boston's all-time scoring list with 24,021 points in the green and white. Monday, 2:12 pm

  • Mills hints Melo not a part of future plans
    Knicks' president Steve Mills did not mention Carmelo Anthony when listing players he's looking to build around.

    Advice: Mills would only say that the Knicks future "may be with Carmelo or it may be without Carmelo," and that he would not pursue a buyout, so essentially Melo's only way out of New York will be via trade. Thus far he's been linked to Houston, Cleveland and Portland, and as of right now, the Rockets look like the frontrunners to land his services. Monday, 11:45 am
  • Rudy Gay (Achilles) says he's fully cleared
    Rudy Gay (Achilles) said he's fully cleared and that the rehab process is going great.

    Advice: "I’m fully cleared to do everything. I’m fine now," Gay said. "The team, it has its own planning with me. But I’m ready to go. I’ll definitely be ready by [training] camp." Gay added that he chose the Spurs because he wants a shot at a championship and believes that coach Gregg Popovich will take his game to the next level. Gay's fantasy value and minutes will likely trend down in San Antonio, so fantasy owners should be cautious. He's also 30 and coming off a major injury, so expect some maintenance days down the stretch. Monday, 6:57 am
  • Quincy Acy's contract becomes guaranteed
    Quincy Acy's contract for the 2017-18 season is now guaranteed.

    Advice: He got married on the same day as his guarantee date, so congrats to Acy and his family. The Nets are a little thin in their frontcourt with only Timofey Mozgov, Jarrett Allen, Trevor Booker and Andrew Nicholson under contract for 2017-18, so Acy does have a shot at minutes on opening night. In 32 games with the Nets last season, Acy averaged 6.5 points, 3.3 rebounds, 1.1 triples and 0.5 blocks in 15.9 minutes. Monday, 6:34 am
  • Dorian Finney-Smith's shot was off in Vegas
    Dorian Finney-Smith had 13 points, seven rebounds, four assists, three steals and one 3-pointer during Sunday's 108-98 defeat in Vegas.

    Advice: The Mavs used a 19-2 run to erode a massive deficit and come within one point late, as guys like DFS, Yogi Ferrell and Corey Webster stepped up after halftime to help Dennis Smith Jr. Finney-Smith was as-advertised in most aspects this summer, playing solid defense and rebounding the ball, but he also shot abysmally -- he came in at 20.5 percent and was a mere 4-of-14 tonight. Sunday, 7:13 pm
  • Jarnell Stokes racks up 22 & 15 in Vegas
    Jarnell Stokes posted 22 points on 9-of-14 shooting, 15 boards, three assists, two steals and one block during the Blazers' semifinals victory in Vegas on Sunday.

    Advice: Stokes was named D-League MVP for 2015-16 but he's struggled to make an impact at the NBA level, appearing in just nine games over the past two seasons. His play at Summer League could earn him a training camp invite, as he's scored 10.6 points on 67.6 percent shooting with 6.6 boards in just 22.0 minutes per game. Sunday, 5:07 pm
  • Luc Mbah a Moute agrees to deal with Houston
    Luc Mbah a Moute has reportedly agreed to a deal with the Rockets.

    Advice: Mbah a Moute will provide Houston with some emergency depth at the forward spots, but he won't be getting enough consistent minutes to make a difference in fantasy hoops. It's reportedly a one-year deal for the minimum, so Mbah a Moute will again be an unrestricted free agent in 2018. Sunday, 2:44 pm
  • Talks break down between Atlanta and Speights
    The Hawks will no longer pursue unrestricted free agent Marreese Speights.

    Advice: Speights' camp was in talks with Atlanta over the past week, but neither side was able to come to terms on a deal. Speights is hoping that he can see a rise from last year's salary of $1.4 million, but at this point, there aren't a ton of teams out there with cap space who are also in need of a reserve big man. Thus far, the Clippers have been the only other team to express interest in Speights. Sunday, 12:45 pm
  • Greg Monroe hoping to stay w/ Bucks
    Greg Monroe said he would like to stay with the Bucks, but added that it's "up to them."

    Advice: It's no secret that the Bucks have shopped him in the past, but unloading his $17.8 million salary for 2017-18 wouldn't be easy. He said he had "no reason to leave" while explaining why he picked up his player option, adding that he wants to help the Bucks take the next step as a team. Coach Jason Kidd seems to prefer Monroe off the bench behind Thon Maker, but expect him to see minutes in the 20s if they finally give up on trading him. He recently turned 27 and posted averages of 11.7 points, 6.6 boards, 2.3 assists and 1.1 steals last season on 53.3 percent shooting. Sunday, 9:59 am
  • Blazers could pursue Carmelo Anthony?
    Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN said the Blazers could pursue Carmelo Anthony.

    Advice: Woj adds that the Blazers feel like the addition of Anthony would "furnish it with talent and depth comparable to those of the top Western Conference contenders." Anthony has only been willing to waive his no-trade clause if he can join the Rockets or Cavaliers, so it's not clear if he'd be interested in joining Portland. It sounds like the Rockets are the favorites to sign Melo and Woj said they are still "determined" to get a deal done, but nothing is imminent for now. Sunday, 7:01 am
  • Rondae Hollis-Jefferson posts 15-13 line
    Rondae Hollis-Jefferson scored 15 points with 13 rebounds, three assists and two turnovers against the Lakers on Saturday.

    Advice: As the Nets prepare to make him a straight four, you could say summer league was a success for RHJ and the Nets. His ability to guard every position is what will give him minutes, but he won't be scoring much and he still has some trouble knocking down shots. Hollis-Jefferson should still be looking at minutes in the upper 20s and have some fantasy value. Saturday, 9:06 pm
  • Woj: Melo expects NYK to resume trade talks
    Adrian Wojnarowski of reports that Carmelo Anthony is "counting on" the Knicks to trade him to the Rockets.

    Advice: Woj adds that Melo expects the Knicks to resume their trade talks after their recent front office changes. Anthony is expected to waive his no-trade clause, so it would appear it may be Houston or bust for the 10-time All-Star to sign off on a move. Anthony's value took a hit after the Phil Jackson disaster, but it sounds like he may be traded at some point. Saturday, 4:43 pm
  • The Clippers waive Kyle Wiltjer on Saturday
    Clippers waive F Kyle Wiltjer.

    Advice: When you make an 8-for-1 trade like the Clippers did, there will be cuts. Wiltjer played a grand total of 44 minutes in his rookie season during the 2016-17 campaign with only 13 total points. Saturday, 2:12 pm
  • Clippers interested in re-signing Speights
    The Clippers still have interest in re-signing Marreese Speights, according to Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times.

    Advice: Speights opted out of his contract this offseason in the hopes that he would see a significant pay raise from the $1.4 million he made last season. However, free agency money has mostly dried up as teams are running out of cap space. Speights may have to settle for a deal near the veteran's minimum next season. Turner notes that while the Clippers have expressed interest, "a deal is not close." Saturday, 7:35 am
  • Kevon Looney double-doubles in victory
    Kevon Looney scored 11 points with 11 rebounds, one block, two steals and one turnover in 27 minutes against the Clippers on Friday.

    Advice: He really needed a good game today and he may have turned in his best one in Las Vegas this year. In this win, Looney grabbed four offensive boards, which is probably the best part of his game. Despite being a first-round pick in 2015, Looney's roster spot may not be safe in October. Friday, 5:45 pm
  • Knicks hoping Melo will expand his wish list
    According to the New York Post, the Knicks are hoping that Carmelo Anthony is willing to expand the list of teams to which he would accept a trade.

    Advice: It was reported on Thursday that the Knicks had put a pause on trade talks and were going to "hit the reset button." New York clearly felt they were not getting fair value in return for Melo. With a new GM hired, the Knicks front office wants to sit down with Anthony and see if he would be interested in staying in New York for another season, or if he'd be open to waiving his no-trade clause for teams outside of Cleveland and Houston. Friday, 8:57 am
  • Report: Pacers offered George to GSW for Klay
    Before the Pacers traded Paul George to OKC, they offered him to the Warriors in exchange for Klay Thompson, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

    Advice: The Warriors obviously declined, and the talks died there. Thompson is locked up for two more seasons, whereas George will be an unrestricted free agent next summer. Nonetheless, it's fascinating to think about the lineups the Warriors could have rolled out this season had they acquired PG-13. Friday, 7:25 am
  • Clippers still engaged with Luc Mbah a Moute
    The Clippers are "still engaged" with free agent Luc Mbah a Moute, according to Adrian Wojnarowski‏ of ESPN.

    Advice: The Clippers signed Danilo Gallinari this summer, but could still certainly use Mbah a Moute as depth off the bench. Mbah a Moute provided L.A. with solid defense while averaging 6.1 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 22.3 minutes per game last season. He can be ignored in standard fantasy leagues. Friday, 6:20 am
  • Dragan Bender scores 20 points in loss to MEM
    Dragan Bender scored 20 points with seven rebounds, five assists, three turnovers and one 3-pointer against the Grizzlies on Thursday.

    Advice: He had more freedom on offense than maybe ever. Bender was even bringing the ball up and had plenty of plays drawn up for him to create, so he wasn't just a stretch five like he was earlier in this event. This probably won't be happening too often in October, but Bender's growth compared to last July is clearly there. He'll be vying for minutes at three positions with the Suns, but he won't have too much fantasy value out of the gate. Thursday, 6:57 pm
  • ESPN: Knicks have paused Carmelo trade talks
    The Knicks have paused Carmelo Anthony trade talks with Houston and Cleveland, according to

    Advice: This probably has a lot to do with the Knicks hiring Scott Perry to be their new general manager. The Knicks aren't really in a rush to get a deal done anyway, especially since the Rockets and Cavs aren't oozing with young talent or draft picks. Thursday, 6:16 pm
  • Kevon Looney scores two points
    Kevon Looney scored two points with three rebounds and one assist in 10 minutes against the Celtics on Thursday.

    Advice: He didn't really do much to show he's capable of producing for the big club. Looney did have some stretches as a plus rebounder last year and he can shoot it, but he hasn't really added anything to his repertoire since he was drafted in 2015. The Warriors may have other ideas for Looney's roster spot. Thursday, 4:50 pm
  • Raps interested in Luc Mbah a Moute
    The Raptors have discussed signing Luc Mbah a Moute, according to Michael Grange of Rogers Sportsnet.

    Advice: With the free agent market drying up, Mbah a Moute is one of the more attractive forwards still available. His numbers don't jump off the page, but he's a solid, reliable veteran that would be a solid addition for a competitive team looking to add defense and depth. Thursday, 6:32 am
  • Dragan Bender scores 18 points w/ three 3s
    Dragan Bender bounced back vs. Utah on Wednesday, hitting 6-of-13 FGs and 3-of-4 FTs to finish with 18 points, five rebounds, two assists and one block.

    Advice: Bender was shooting 32.4 percent in Vegas prior to tonight's game, but he found his jumper and knocked down three triples. The two assists are a bit disappointing, though, as Earl Watson said he'd groom Bender as a 'point forward' in Vegas. Marquese Chriss was quiet with 13 points and two rebounds, while Mike James posted an impressive 18 points, seven assists and three boards in 32 minutes for Phoenix. Wednesday, 7:09 pm
  • Report: Melo to Houston on two-yard line
    A deal to send Carmelo Anthony to Houston is on the "two yard line," according to Frank Isola of the NY Daily News.

    Advice: The biggest obstacle appears to be Ryan Anderson, so it'll likely have to be a multiple-team trade. Anthony has reportedly been open to waiving his no-trade clause and he is close with Chris Paul, so it's possible this can go down. General manager Daryl Morey hasn't been shy about dropping hints he's after Melo, so this story could pick up even more steam. Wednesday, 2:53 pm
  • NYK, HOU working on Carmelo Anthony trade
    The Knicks and Rockets are reportedly working on a trade centered around Carmelo Anthony.

    Advice: It's unclear at the moment exactly who the Rockets would be sending away to make this deal go down, but Adrian Wojnarowski reports that this potential blockbuster deal could involve two additional teams. In order to make the numbers work, Ryan Anderson would assuredly have to go, which could be a good thing for his fantasy value considering he likely wouldn't get many touches on Houston's new Superteam. The Melo-Mike D'Antoni pairing didn't go all that well the first time around, but perhaps Anthony will be more willing to embrace D'Antoni's system now that he'll no longer be the franchise player. Wednesday, 8:13 am
  • Report: Noel, Mavs 'not close' to a deal
    Nerlens Noel is reportedly "not close" to coming to terms on a deal with the Mavericks.

    Advice: It sounds like the Mavs would like to sign Noel for less than the max, which is an understandable strategy considering not many teams out there have the cap space to offer Noel a max contract. Either way, the Mavs will be able to match any offer that Noel receives on the open market, so they'll probably wait for the market to dictate his price before offering him a big money deal. Wednesday, 6:37 am
  • Kevon Looney won't play Tuesday
    Kevon Looney had an allergic reaction to something on Monday and will be held out of Tuesday's Summer League game.

    Advice: For now, we'll consider Looney day-to-day. The Warriors were able to bring back David West and Zaza Pachulia, so Looney isn't projected to be in the rotation on opening night. Tuesday, 5:58 pm
  • Paul George says he may stay in OKC
    In an interview with Sports Illustrated, Paul George says he will definitely consider re-signing with the Thunder if they advance deep into the playoffs.

    Advice: George reiterates on multiple occasions that winning is his highest priority. For that reason, he's not sold on the Lakers, even though he admits it would be the fulfillment of a childhood dream to play for L.A. "For me, it’s all about winning," said George. "If we get a killer season in Oklahoma, we make the conference finals or upset the Warriors or do something crazy, I’d be dumb to want to leave that." Tuesday, 8:09 am
  • Willie Reed is on the Hawks radar
    Willie Reed is on the Hawks radar, according to Alex Kennedy of Hoopshype.

    Advice: Atlanta needs to add bigs. They traded away Dwight Howard and Paul Millsap signed with the Nuggets. The oft-injured Miles Plumlee currently projects at the team's starting center, with little reliable depth behind him. Reed played well in a handful of spot starts last season. He averaged 14.8 points (on 68.6 percent shooting) and 8.2 rebounds in the five games he started for Miami. Tuesday, 7:31 am
  • Troy Williams leads Rockets w/ 27 points
    Troy Williams scored 27 points in a 99-94 win over the Suns on Monday to give the Rockets a 2-1 record in the Vegas Summer League.

    Advice: He shook off a tough start from the field and finished 7-of-18 shots with six boards, one steal, one block and three triples. His energy levels are through the roof and he looks like he's way too good to be out there with averages of 25.0 points in his previous two outings. With Sam Dekker no longer around, Williams has made a strong case to be in the rotation behind Trevor Ariza and Eric Gordon on the wings. Monday, 5:56 pm
  • Willie Reed not expected to re-sign w/ MIA
    Pat Riley said Willie Reed will likely move on elsewhere.

    Advice: "Right now, with our front line... I hope he gets something that he deserves," Riley added. The Heat only have a $4.3 million exception anyways, and they already have Hassan Whiteside, James Johnson and Kelly Olynyk in their frontcourt. Additionally, first-round draft pick Bam Adebayo was phenomenal at the Orlando Summer League. Reed has been linked to the Clippers, 76ers, Pacers and Rockets, so he should be in line for a nice raise. Jul 10, 10:49 am
  • Jeremy Lin confident that Carroll will help
    Jeremy Lin said that the Nets "desperately" needed someone like DeMarre Carroll.

    Advice: "He can definitely shoot the [3-point shot] and he can definitely play defense, which we really, really need help with," Lin said. "And he can do more than that. But just veteran leadership, toughness, grit. I’m hoping he comes in and is a vocal leader. Those are some things that we need." Carroll was just a salary dump and Brooklyn received two drafts picks in return, but there's a chance he could get his career back on track with the Nets. Brooklyn head coach Kenny Atkinson was an assistant for Atlanta during Carroll's best years in the NBA, so maybe he can help get him going. Jul 10, 6:54 am
