After years of silence, ex-76ers GM Sam Hinkie finally speaks. True Hoop delves into his process and ultimate fall:

Should the Knicks make a play for Cousins?

Ryen Russillo says DeMarcus Cousins' lazy performances shouldn't get teams eager to grab him.

Jeff Hornacek knows the Knicks need to fill voids at shooting guard and center in free agency but suggests center may be a priority early on. "We don't necessarily need a (shooting guard) who can create a bunch of plays because we should have enough guys who can do that. So when you look at it that way, maybe the (center) may be a little bit more important of a position right now," he said after the Knicks' Summer League practice. On the center front, the Knicks and center Joakim Noah have mutual interest in one another and some in the Knicks' organization have interest in Timofey Mozgov, per sources. The club will have $30 million to spend in free agency so it will be difficult to obtain elite players at both center and shooting guard.

Tim Duncan opts in, will help pitch KD, decent chance he'll play next yr. Hope he does. Still extremely valuable rim protector/rebounder.

Carli Lloyd > LeBron?

Carli Lloyd had a great year, but was her championship performance better than LeBron James', Von Miller's or Sidney Crosby's? Vote for the ESPYS
