Everything's sunny in Miami ... for now

Dwyane Wade's new $20 million deal is a win-win for he and the Heat. But what happens next year, when he'll hit the open market yet again?

I don't see why that wouldn't work cap-wise and it would give the Mavericks about $8-10 million to find a starting PG/add depth.

As I look at it, I'm probably understating the possibility of Dallas swapping Ellis for Hibbert and Hibbert for Jordan if Jordan picks them.

'White Chocolate' still smooth

Former NBA point guard Jason Williams is 39 years old, but that doesn't mean he can't ball. Case in point: This Orlando Pro-Am footage. Watch

Wes Matthews is the anti-Monta

Wesley Matthews is the polar opposite of the player he's replacing in Dallas' starting lineup. And that's a good thing

Sources: Aldridge digesting team pitches

LaMarcus Aldridge currently has no plans to make out-of-town visits and, at this stage, plans to take "a couple of days" to digest all the pitches he's received after meeting with seven teams: He met with the Lakers twice, and the Spurs, Suns, Mavs, Rockets, Raptors and Heat.

Broussard: Aldridge on info overload

Free agent LaMarcus Aldridge had a second meeting with the Lakers, but Chris Broussard tells SportsCenter that doesn't matter: "I don't think they can sway him to go to L.A." San Antonio -- and Phoenix -- are still out in front.


LaMarcus Aldridge: Like Mike

Since the advent of the 3-point line (1979-80 season), LaMarcus Aldridge and Michael Jordan are the only players to lead the NBA in 2-point field goal attempts in three consecutive seasons.

San Antonio's assistant coach will lead the Spurs' Las Vegas team, becoming the first woman to serve as a head coach of a summer league team. Last year, Natalie Nakase was an assistant coach for the Clippers' summer league team. (via San Antonio Express-News)

SportsCenter's Not Top Plays

Not a great week for catching pop flies in MLB ... but not sure anyone can top Shaq trying to drive the ball off the tee.

As for last night's LMA dinner with Miami: One observer concedes odds highly against Heat pulling off the needed S&T ... but "Riley is good"

Countdown to the Body Issue: 3 days

We hope Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried has time to pick up the new Body Issue coming out July 6 in between his preparations for the NBA exhibition game in South Africa later this summer.

Orlando: a destination for all ages

Tom Penn says the Magic will be stuck in a vicious cycle of losing unless they're able to add some veterans.

Teams have not been given a timetable on DeAndre Jordan's decision but the expectation is he'll decide within 48 hours.

Why Knicks struggle to recruit players

Between the unappetizing prospect of rebuilding and the fact players can get money and stardom elsewhere, Bruce Bowen and Tom Haberstroh aren't surprised with the weakening of New York's allure.


Reports: Wizards want David West

Tim MacMahon @espn_macmahon

Lot of people asking me about timetable for DeAndre Jordan decision. He has set no deadline but expected today or tomorrow.

Zach Lowe @ZachLowe_NBA

If Nene is really available for nothing/cap space, that's an interesting place for the Mavs to look if DJ returns to Clips.

Marc Stein @ESPNSteinLine

Concurrent with their pursuit of David West, I'm told Wizards continue to shop Nene but clinging to hope they can trade him into cap space

Marc Stein @ESPNSteinLine

But San Antonio remains firmly in David West hunt. Hearing Golden State now highly unlikely for D-West; looks like SA or DC are his spots

Marc Stein @ESPNSteinLine

ESPN sources say Wizards pushing hard to land David West. Would be nice rally to get both Jared Dudley and D-West after losing Paul Pierce
