Joe Johnson would give #Cavs a max player at every position: PG Kyrie, SF LeBron, PF Love, C Thompson. But their tax bill would be insane!

Cavs-Nets trade talks stagnant

Chris Broussard explains: "At one point it seemed like the ball was in the Cavaliers' court ... Now it seems like the Nets don't really want to do it."


Spurs win big in free agency

ESPN's 5-on-5 panel was unanimous. San Antonio was the big winner in free agency. Royce Young writes: "Normally dormant and enjoying the frenzied madness from afar over a glass of wine, the Spurs stepped into the middle of it this summer." More winners and losers

Jordan Crawford, the ex-NBA gunner who spent last season in China, is on the Mavs summer league roster. Dallas could use another shooter.

Parsons: Jordan can be NBA's best center

Mavs forward Chandler Parsons told ESPN's Tim MacMahon of DeAndre Jordan's decision to sign in Dallas: "It all came down to him being the best center in the NBA, an All-Star-caliber and MVP-caliber player in this league. No doubt in my mind that [opportunity] was here in Dallas." Parsons' recruiting role

"You've heard the saying, "Some people live to eat, and some people eat to live"; I think you can figure out which one I was. ... If you asked me to pose back then, that would have been a solid 'No.' A hard 'No.'" See his incredible transformation

Cavs still waiting on LeBron James

Jeremy Lin to Dallas remains likely. Mavs working to carve out salary slot for him. JJ Barea for $2.8M exception is close to sure thing.

Calvin Watkins @calvinwatkins

Scratch Sergio Llull from the Rockets plans. Team doesn't expect him to play in NBA this upcoming season. He will remain with Real Madrid.

Both sides, I'm told, have now signed off on the Omri Casspi deal and it will be finalized July 9 with the Kings' other moves this week
