Report: Carmelo Anthony returning to New York


by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Despite taking several meetings with other teams this offseason, Carmelo Anthony is expected to announce that he'll return to the Knicks. The New York Daily News reported Wednesday that Anthony told a close friend he "believes in Phil" and plans to announce his intent Thursday.

Anthony was said to be deciding between the Lakers and Knicks over the past few days, but it ultimately appears he'll opt to make more money by staying put while seeing what the new regime under Phil Jackson can do for him in the coming years. 


Chauncey Billups' next career move undecided


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/8/2014) The Pistons opted not to pick up a $2.5 million team option for veteran guard Chauncey Billups, and that might spell the end of his career as a player.

As he told BasketballInsiders.com, he has opportunities waiting for him in front offices or as a member of the media, if he does decide to retire. Though he has not made a decision on whether he will retire or not, Billups did say he is considering playing if the right situation presents itself.

"I know that in the right situation, I can really help a team win," he said. "But it would take the right situation. I'm not going to play just to play. I have nothing left to prove and I've accomplished everything I wanted to accomplish playing basketball, so it would take the right situation for me to play."

Billups appeared in just 19 games a year ago, averaging 3.8 points and 2.2 assists per game for the Pistons. 


Josh McRoberts agrees to join Heat


by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(7/7/2014) Free agent forward Josh McRoberts had been reportedly been deciding between the Miami Heat and the incumbent Charlotte Hornets, but ESPN reported Monday that a decision has been made. The report suggests McRoberts has "verbally committed" to joining the Heat.

McRoberts will likely take Miami's full mid-level exception. NBA Insider Ken Berger reports that the deal is worth $23 million over four years. He had a successful season playing point forward for Charlotte last year, averaging a career-high 4.3 assists per game.


Lakers move into three-team race for Carmelo Anthony


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/5/2014) Lakers forward Carmelo Anthony came away from his meeting with the Lakers very impressed and is now seriously considering them as a free-agency destination, according to reports Saturday.

ESPN.com first reported that the Lakers made a 'major impact' on Anthony and are now one of three teams the free agent is considering, along with the Bulls and Knicks. The Knicks can offer the most money and an extra year on a max contract, however the Lakers have also offered a max contract for his services. The Bulls do not currently have the cap space to give Anthony a max deal.  


Nerlens Noel gets through first summer-league game


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/5/2014) 76ers center Nerlens Noel shined in his Orlando Summer League debut Saturday, his first game action since tearing his ACL as a freshman in college.

Noel played 26 minutes in the exhibition game against the Magic, and looked dominant at times against rookies and other fringe NBA players. He scored 19 points on 6 of 11 shooting, with two rebounds, three assists and four steals. Noel also went 7 for 7 from the free-throw line, a promising sign after he shot just 52.9 percent from the free-throw line at Kentucky. 


Pierre Jackson suffers Achilles injury in Summer LEague


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/5/2014) 76ers guard Pierre Jackson may have suffered a serious injury during his summer league debut in Orlando Saturday, as he went down with an Achilles injury against the Magic.

Jackson had to be carried off the floor by teammates, and the team confirmed he injured his right Achilles. Details are not yet known, but there is some concern that the Achilles is torn, which would likely end Jackson's 2014-15 season.

Jackson was the 42nd overall pick in the 2013 draft, and the 76ers acquired his rights at the 2014 draft. He spent the 2013 season playing in the D-League, averaging 29.1 points, 3.6 rebounds and 6.2 assists per game for the Idaho Stampede. 


Report: Carmelo Anthony expected back with Knicks


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/5/2014) Free agent forward Carmelo Anthony is taking the weekend to mull over his options, but the New York Daily News reports Saturday he is expected to re-sign with the Knicks.

Anthony has been offered a five-year, $129 million contract from the Knicks, more than any competing team can match. Anthony has also received offers from the Mavericks, Rockets, Lakers and Bulls, but those teams can only offer four year deals. According to a New York Post report, Anthony is also considering taking less than the max from the Knicks.

Anthony spent the previous three and a half seasons with the Knicks, but put together arguably his best last year. He averaged 27.4 points, 8.1 rebounds and 3.1 assists while appearing in 77 games, his highest total since 2010-11. 


Report: Thunder leading the pack for Pau Gasol


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/3/2014) Free agent center Pau Gasol has found a fairly hot market for his services this offseason, despite dealing with injuries and declining production in recent seasons.

Gasol has been linked to the Heat , Bulls and Thunder in addition to the incumbent Lakers during the first few days of free agency. According to ESPN.com, Thunder guard Russell Westbrook and forward Kevin Durant met with Gasol in Los Angeles Wednesday, and the Thunder are considered possible frontrunners for his services at this point.

Gasol was limited to 60 games last season and just 49 the year before, after missing just one game in his previous two seasons. The 34-year-old did average 17.4 points, 9.7 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game when healthy in 2013-14. 


Patty Mills expected to return on three-year deal


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/3/2014) The Spurs have reached an agreement with guard Patty Mills on a three-year contract, the San Antonio Express-News reports Wednesday.

Mills will return for three years and $12 million, according to the report. This comes one day after news broke that Mills will likely be out until March due to shoulder surgery. He has been diagnosed with a torn rotator cuff and is expected to need seven months to recover.

Milles averaged 10.2 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game in 81 appearances with the Spurs last season, while shooting 46.4 percent from the field and 42.5 percent from three-point range. 


Pacers and C.J. Miles agree to multi-year deal


by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(7/2/2014) The Indiana Pacers and shooter C.J. Miles agreed to a multi-year deal Wednesday, according to the Indianapolis Star. The deal is reportedly worth $18 million over four years.

Miles played just 51 games for the Cavaliers last season, but he did shoot 39 percent from three on the year. He averaged 9.9 points per game. It remains to be seen whether or not this move complicates the Pacers' re-signing Lance Stephenson. 


Manu Ginobili diagnosed with stress fracture in leg


by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(7/2/2014) Fresh off a sterling Finals performance, Spurs guard Manu Ginobili has been diagnosed with "the early stages of a stress fracture" in his right leg, according to Yahoo Sports. 

That sounds bad, but it seems the injury will only have a two-month recovery time. Ginobili will miss the FIBA Basketball World Cup in Spain but should be OK once training camp begins in September. 


Patty Mills set for shoulder surgery


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/2/2014) Spurs guard Patty Mills is unlikely to be healthy by the start of the 2014-15 season, after the Sydney Morning Herald reported Tuesday he will need surgery on his right shoulder.

Mills is set to undergo surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff, though it is not clear when he suffered the injury. Mills could miss up to seven months of action while recovering from the injury.

Mills was coming off his best season as a pro, as he averaged 10.2 points on 46.4 percent shooting in 81 games with the Spurs. The free agent also shot 42.5 percent from three-point range, while adding 1.8 assists per game in just 18.9 minutes. 


Kent Bazemore heading to unrestricted free agency


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/29/2014) The Lakers will not extend a qualifying offer to guard Kent Bazemore, making him an unrestricted free agent July 1, reports NBA.com.

Bazemore blossomed in 23 games with the Lakers, averaging 13.1 points, 3.3 rebounds and 3.1 assists per game before ending the season with foot surgery. He will be 25 when he becomes a free agent. 


Byron Mullens opts out, Jason Richardson opts in for 2014-15


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/27/2014) 76ers general manager Sam Hinkie announced some housekeeping notes Friday following the draft, noting that guard Jason Richardson picked up his player option for 2014-15 season, while center Byron Mullens did not.

Richardson did not appear in a game for the 76ers last season, while recovering from a knee injury. Mullens appeared in 18 games with the 76ers following a late trade, averaging 6.8 points and 3.3 rebounds in 13.7 minutes per game. 


Martell Webster out 3-5 months after back surgery


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/27/2014) Wizards forward Martell Webster could miss the start of the 2014-15 season, after undergoing surgery to repair a herniated disk in his lower back Friday, the team announced.

Webster suffered the injury during a recent workout at the team's practice facility, and is expected to miss three to five months while rehabilitating from the injury. That timeline could leave him out until late November, putting his availability for the start of the season very much in question.

Webster might have had a starting job waiting for him next year, with the Wizards roster possibly facing some turnover. He averaged 9.7 points and 2.8 rebounds per game in 78 appearances last year. 


Carmelo Anthony sets timeframe for free agency decision


by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(6/27/2014) By the end of the second week in July, Carmelo Anthony will have decided his fate -- at least that's what Yahoo Sports reported Friday afternoon.

Anthony will meet with the Bulls, Knicks, Lakers, Rockets and Mavericks once free agency begins. He has maintained that he would like to remain in New York, but obviously if other, more talented teams pitch him a better scenario for winning, he could be packing his bags by the end of next month.

A career-year high 38.7 minutes per game might also contribute to Anthony's departure. That's a lot of minutes to give to a 30-year-old superstar tasked with carrying a team's offense. 


Carmelo Anthony to decline player option, hit open market


by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(6/23/2014) The Knicks won't have Carmelo Anthony under contract heading into free agency, as the All-Star forward chose to terminate his current contract and become an unrestricted free agent, according to multiple reports

Anthony has forgone the $23.3 million he was owed for the coming season to test the open market this offseason. The Knicks tried their best to persuade him into staying by hiring Phil Jackson as their president of operations, but it wasn't enough to convince Anthony to opt in. The Bulls are thought to be the frontrunner to acquire his services, but other free agent dominos will likely fall before any final decisions are made. 


Source: Josh McRoberts to test free agency


by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(6/18/2014) A source told the Charlotte Observer Wednesday that Hornets forward Josh McRoberts will opt out of his current deal, becoming an unrestricted free agent.

McRoberts had an impressive year playing point forward for Charlotte, finishing second among power forwards in assists per game at 4.3 -- just behind Kevin Love. 


Report: Carmelo Anthony leaning toward leaving Knicks


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/14/2014) The New York Daily News reported earlier in the week that Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony is expected to opt out of his current contract and test the market. Now, Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski reports Saturday that Anthony is leaning toward leaving New York.

The Bulls and Rockets have emerged as the clear frontrunners to acquire Anthony, according to Wojnarowski's report. Chicago would need amnesty Carlos Boozer's contract and trade Taj Gibson, along with another piece. Houston would need to create some cap space as well in order to acquire Anthony.

"His heart is in New York, but he wants a chance to win now," a source told Wojnarowski.

Earlier this week, a report from ESPN surfaced that Miami "already started to explore their options" to target Anthony. Heat forward Chris Bosh told ESPN that adding Anthony would be "very, very, unlikely."

The Knicks are expected to meet with Anthony this weekend to discuss his future plans, Yahoo! Sports reports.

Jason Richardson expected to opt into final year of deal


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/14/2014) 76ers guard Jason Richardson is expected to opt into the final year of his contract, the Los Angeles Times reports. Richardson, who did not play last year because of a knee injury, is expected to make $6.6 million next season.

Eric Gordon expects to resume basketball activities this month


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/14/2014) Pelicans guard Eric Gordon expects to resume basketball activities this month, NBA.com reports. Gordon underwent arthroscopic surgery to clean up his left knee in mid-April.

"Over the previous two to three years, I've been forced to mostly focus on rehabbing and my body recovering, instead of working out like I want to, as far as lifting and building muscle," Gordon said. "I'm going to change various things this year, so that I can make sure every time I get on the court, I'm the best athlete on the floor, like I was a few years ago, before I came to New Orleans."

Al Horford limited to non-contact workouts while rehabbing in Italy


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/7/2014) Hawks center Al Horford is rehabbing from pectoral surgery with assistant coach Darvin Ham in Italy. He is currently limited to non-contact workouts and is expected to be cleared for full participation to all normal basketball activities at the start of training camp, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Michael Carter-Williams ahead of schedule in recovery from shoulder surgery


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/7/2014) 76ers guard Michael Carter-Williams told the Philadelphia Inquirer that he is ahead of schedule in his recovery from offseason shoulder surgery.

The reigning rookie of the year had major surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder. He is not expected to play in the summer league. In his first season, the 22-year-old averaged 16.7 points, 6.2 rebounds and 6.3 assists in 70 games.

"I'm ahead of schedule. I'm only in Week 4 [since surgery], and I'll be OK," Carter-Williams said. "I know that a lot of people have talked about me working on my shot, and I will do that as much as I am able. But I also look at it positively in that for the first time in a long time I'll be pain-free when I'm shooting. I think that is going to help me a lot right there. I'll be able to be more consistent, and that's all I can really ask for."

Anthony Davis improving his game, size this offseason


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/7/2014) Pelicans forward Anthony Davis is hitting the weight room pretty hard this offseason, and is already up to 237 pounds, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. He is also working on developing a corner three-point shot, more post moves and a pull-up jumper off the dribble to his offensive repertoire.

Davis, who weighted less than 230 last season, led the team in scoring (20.8) and rebounding (10.0). He also led the league in blocked shots with 2.8 per game. He is expected to participate in Team USA training camp and exhibition games this summer.

"When you see him it's like 'Wow, this kid is growing as we speak.' His shoulders, back, chest (are bigger), and it's all proportioned," coach Monty Williams said. "It's not like any fake. He is not going to be 245 or anything like that. But he has put on some good poundage. It looks pretty good."

Hornets hope to have Jeff Taylor ready before summer league


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/31/2014) Hornets forward Jeff Taylor is still recovering from a ruptured Achilles and head coach Steve Clifford remains hopeful of having him ready to practice with the summer-league team in July, the Charlotte Observer reports. However, he does want him to take a cautious approach in his recovery so that he doesn't risk re-injuring his Achilles.

"He wants to do everything today, and it's not that kind of injury," Clifford said. "The doctor said they're happy with where he's at. He needs to keep going at the rate they want him to."
