NBA Players Association meeting underway in Vegas this afternoon along w/ Team USA camp. Voting for new union head is scheduled for tonight

Chris Sheridan

On Day One of Team USA camp, @Derrick Rose looked good. But so did the four other PGs. We got PFs? Column from Coach Bobby Gonzalez coming.

Mark Montieth

Donald Sterling is the latest proof that money can't buy happiness, and that health trumps wealth.

Arash Markazi

Worst part of Donald's case was that Shelly had an "obligation as a wife." They were in court because of things Donald said to his mistress.

Chuck Swirsky

Someone please tell the folks calling Jays-Red Sox game on ESPN that the Jays made a trade

Jon Santiago

At one point today, DMC mentioned he and Kevin Durant were talking about how tired they both were from Monday's practice.

Dan Woike

Pierce O'Donnell said he hopes the sale to Steve Ballmer closes just before Aug. 15.

Jerry Zgoda

Mo Williams' signing gives the Wolves something they still lack: A guy who can create his own shot almost anytime he wants

Jon Santiago

What's the difference b/w being on the Select Team vs. National Team according to DMC? "We're the bullies now," he said jokingly w/ a laugh.

Dan Woike

Shellyw as asked if Donald was going to drop his other lawsuits. "I'm sure he will," Shelly said. Um...?

Sean Highkin

Somebody should tell @Tostitos that if they made Hint-of-Lime Scoops they could just have all my money.

Dan Woike

Shelly Sterling said Donald Sterling will be "very happy" w/ the decision. Good luck explaining that relationship.

You ever wonder why news on TV is somewhat despressing, then at the end they give you ONE heart-warming story? Why don't they reverse that?

Eric Koreen

On why DeMar DeRozan's candidacy for Team USA is intriguing: sports.nationalpost.com/2014/07/28/tor…

Jimmy Spencer

Well I think it can come at any age too RT @HayloHaylz: @Jimmy Spencer I agree. It's either ingrained in you from the start or not at all.

Sean Cunningham

DeMarcus Cousins voiced his praise & was impressed by Summer League squad. Nice things about Stauskas, Moreland, McCallum #NBAKings

Alan Hahn

That's creepy, bro. RT @DannyPatron: @DonLagreca @RothenbergESPN @Alan Hahn http://t.co/skHpAGKhGD

Jimmy Spencer

You can never can talk someone into having a faith. You can build a relationship, share your experiences, and demonstrate love. No arguing.

Howard Chen

#Astros reliever Josh Zeid tried to tough out foot trouble for 18 MONTHS. Both feet. Seeing a doc tomorrow morn: csnhouston.com/blog/astros-ta…

Sean Cunningham

After the shooting competition, DeMarcus Cousins said jokingly, he's the third splash brother now.

Ailene Voisin

I caught up with former Kings coach Paul Westphal. Joined Lionel Hollins' staff in Brooklyn. Glad to be back. Happy Sac kept its Kings.

Arash Markazi

Donald's witnesses didn't help his case at all. He only called two, both from Vegas and both failed to make his case or move the needle.

Sean Cunningham

Believe it or not, DeMarcus Cousins finished third to splash brothers Steph Curry & champ Klay Thompson. Beating Gordon Hayward.

Emiliano Carchia

Andre Drummond to Draymond Green: “Not In My House” http://t.co/jdZq572vG2

Dwain Price

With the influx of high-caliber rookies, along with veterans changing teams, this has the makings of being a very interesting NBA season.

Ailene Voisin

News about court ruling against Donald Sterling broke during Team USA practice. Sale to Ballmer approved. Several surprised, pleased folks

Tim Bontemps

He also said he had a nice lunch with King and a nice dinner with Lionel Hollins, who he talked to about "my game & what he expects from me"

Darren Wolfson

That's the #Twolves dream scenario. RT @termoney28 @Darren Wolfson if it is a 3 team trade, are you assuming Wolves get Young and Wiggins?

Sean Cunningham

A lot of players were shaking off rust during first day at Team USA Basketball Camp in Vegas.

Jon Santiago

I'm getting my Nevada driver's license delivered to the Monte Carlo tomorrow. RT @basketballista: @Jon Santiago lol still in Vegas?

Alan Hahn

Oh and yes, we can talk hoops. Kevin Love's plans for free agency...Melo's comments...LeBron's number....and what's next for the Knicks.

Tim Bontemps

Bogdanovic will wear his usual No. 44, and after touring @barclayscenter with Billy King called it "one of the best courts in the world."

Jim Eichenhofer

Kevin Durant on Anthony Davis: "You can tell he's getting bulkier, bigger. He's more confident. You can tell he's working."

Jody Genessy

Here's a new Recruiting Central page for Utah high school football: goo.gl/PkWvMm. Nice work by @BrandonCGurney & @LafePeavler.

John Denton

#Bulls G @Derrick Rose on @Victor Oladipo "I love how he plays. He deserves to be up here & I’m a big fan. I love how he takes the game so serious."

Tim Bontemps

With the open minutes the Nets have at small forward, you'd think Bogdanovic will be given every opportunity to fill them.

Alan Hahn

Next on @ESPNNY98_7FM: #HahnSolo from 7-11 pm. Tulomania, more Ray Rice fallout and the Jets are the Jets again. 800-919-3776 Hit me back!

Nick Friedell

Rose on his confidence: "My confidence level is through the roof."

Chris Sheridan

Adam Zagoria

Maryland offered 2015 F Markis McDuffie of St Ant's & Sports U

Tim Bontemps

Some thoughts on Bogdanovic from earlier today. First, he made a point of saving – several times – he expects to contribute immediately.

Adam Zagoria

To clarify, multiple sources tell @SNYtv Mudiay passed through the Clearinghouse on academic side but the amateurism side wasn't completed

Once again, me @SportsonEarth on the current FA landscape. Mo Williams is off the board but some good value left sportsonearth.com/article/866433…

Jimmy Spencer

I also find “attacks on Christians” is no different than racism or bigotry. You should never label, judge or groups millions as the same.

John Denton

#Magic F @Tobias Harris : "The knowledge that is here, I wanna pick up on some things & learn s'thing new.This is a huge learning exp. for me."

Jon Santiago

DeMarcus Cousins after his 3-point contest against Klay & Steph: "I'm just letting it be known I'm now one of the Splash Brothers."

Ben Standig

If @John Wall and @Bradley Beal understand the internet at all they must take a selfie with Kevin Durant. Later in the week is fine.

Howard Chen

NBA on Sterling: "We look forward to the transaction closing as soon as possible." (2/2)

Brett Pollakoff

Why does anyone bid on an eBay auction with more than 30 seconds left before it ends?

Tim Bontemps

NBA on Sterling: "We are pleased that the court has affirmed Shelly Sterling’s right to sell the LA Clippers to Steve Ballmer." (1/2)

Jimmy Spencer

If you take an excerpt of the Bible without understanding the whole story, it’s like watching 5 min of The Godfather & saying, “it’s boring"

Sean Highkin

There is no bad one-year deal unless you were to hypothetically sign Raymond Felton to a one-year deal.

Alex Raskin

1reason @franfraschilla likes #Nets Bojan Bodanovic is because he played for Jasmin Repeša (Crotian team) & Željko Obradović (Fenerbache)...

Dwain Price

"Sterling’s right to sell the Los Angeles Clippers to Steve Ballmer. We look forward to the transaction closing as soon as possible.”

NBA statement on a judge's rulling against Clippers owner Donald Sterling: “We are pleased that the court has affirmed Shelly (CONT.)

Jimmy Spencer

I can understand people’s difference of opinion on the existence of God. I don’t understand taking excerpts of the Bible and mocking them.

Joe Cowley

Me thinks Thibs knows the boys back at the Berto are still pushing for something. [Scratch head here].

Tom Thibodeau, @usabasketball assistant coach/Bulls head coach, on Derrick Rose today: "His explosiveness is back. That's all there."

John Schuhmann

Drat. RT @Buck Harvey: Spurs sent Ginobili a letter -- citing stress fracture & recovery time, they will not grant him permission to play @FIBA.

Joe Cowley

A smirking Thibs on was enough done to make this roster a contender: "We still have moves we can make between now and when camp starts.''

Eric Pincus

That image of Quin Snyder and Gordon Hayward enjoying a post-practice chat makes me want to squeeze the photo's cheeks.

Kamenetzky Brothers

And with the Sterling probate court decision, it appears Byron and Doc will in fact NOT serve as co-Laker head coaches. AK

Jody Genessy

It's common for NBA coaches/brass to observe their players at Team USA functions. Corbin and Lindsey did last year.

Chris Palmer

Hearing so many good things about Derrick Rose. Hope the man is finally back.
