Mavs deal with Griffin (3-yrs, only $150k guaranteed) means they will give him every chance to make roster.
Love the Mavs' offseason except that the Suns probably miss the playoffs again.
Mavericks maintained $2.7M room exception, expected to go to veteran guard Jameer Nelson.
Assuming Nelson signs, that will be 15: Dirk, TC, CP, Ellis, Nelson, Harris, Wright, Crowder, Smith, Felton, Mekel, RJ, Ledo, Aminu, Griffin
The Al-Farouq Aminu deal is for two years at the veteran's minimum. Player option for the second season.
A lot of teams could use Al-Farouq Aminu at the minimum.
Aminu's deal with Dallas is for two years, $2.1M, player option for second season, per source.
So with Aminu and Nelson heading to Dallas, now more than ever it looks like Shawn Marion won't be back with Dallas.
Mavs will sign F Al-Farouq Aminu, agent Raymond Brothers said.
Sanabria puts a good chance across goal and earns Roma a corner with a few minutes left.
Coutinho comes off after a nice performance to a round of applause from the crowd. Just about the only applause in Fenway tonight.
One on One with Amos Hayes on now on fm107.5 and 1070 The Fan.
Steve McQueen -- sportcoat, turtleneck, fast car, car chase, the Mob, TV dinners: "Bullitt"
According to a source, there are no substantial trade talks involving Thaddeus Young at this time. "There's a new rumor out there everyday."
People realize Doc Rivers signed a 3-year contract, right? He can't just quit and coach another team tomorrow.
Sam Smith joining me on ESPN Chicago 1000 says Love to Bulls not happening.
Apocalypse now at Yankee Stadium. Approximately 10 miles south, in Manhattan, nothing. Just a little thunder and lightning in the distance.

I think if I had to compare my dance moves to anyone, it would be this guy in Sixteen Candles http://t.co/kLg5zHS16d
Look, there is only side profiting from and buying support as we head toward an eventual name change. It's not GP Marshall's grand baby.
The Suns have officially re-signed P.J. Tucker
Jon Miller is an absolute gift during rain delays - love the stories.
Also Robbie Hummel can block any trades the Wolves may try to include him in - should that come up - implicit no-trade via signing 1-yr deal
Robbie Hummel will make $880k fully guaranteed with Timberwolves this season
A six man show tonight ESPN 1000 http://t.co/bMnucjCFQW
Sending off Mary Schmitt-Boyer tonight at her goodbye party. A true gem who will be missed dearly. http://t.co/KBpdpcLhAx
I also talked to Mitchell Butler, one of Josh Huestis’ agents, today. Will have more from him and on this situation tomorrow.
The Phillies are exactly what the Giants cannot allow themselves to become--tired, old, and being paid for how good they used to be.
Wow. Felton has to do 500 hours of community service. THAT is a lot. I'm betting he doesn't make it. They better monitor him closely.
Bummed to not see Jones v. Gustafsson Part II but Cormier will bring it. Real interesting matchup.
Hosting sports talk on ESPN 1000. My competition across the street .....hmmmmm. Could be a long night for the Swirsk http://t.co/KwOGQ4WLTK
The 2014-15 season is the first one with the "repeater tax" but I don't believe any orgnizations will qualify to pay it this year
Are we sure the Phillies know there's video review in baseball now?
Other than that, the best owners cut the check but mostly stay out of the way: Holt, Arison, the late Mr D, the late Dr Buss, Les Alexander
I don't need a curved UHDTV. I don't need a curved UHDTV. I don't need a curved UHDTV. I don't need a curved UHDTV. I don't need a curved...
Highlight of the summer: Houston re-signing Ish Smith, who's once again Rocket Ishmael.
I think Mark Cuban also has gone the extra mile in terms of learning and understanding the game. But at first? Wooo, he was a doozy.
Of course there are exceptions. Jerry Colangelo probably was the most knowledgable owner ever (given that he was a GM before he owned Suns)
The key is to hire the RIGHT people, then let them do their job. Be appraised, have them explain the whys of moves...but let them do the job
As expected, the Pelicans waived small forward Omri Casspi this afternoon
Now, are there awful basketball ppl out there who make bad decisions? Sure, just like there are awful CPAs who mess up your taxes.
I mean, unless you were some tax whiz, in which case by all means. But rarely are owners as well versed in "tax law" as the "CPAs" they hire
I keep going back to this analogy: if you hire someone to do your taxes, you don't waltz in on Apr 15th & say "nah do it this way"
The Lakers have officially signed Jordan Hill, which may or may not end the Jordan Hill sign and trade rumors. BK
Lakers make Jordan Hill signing official...
Kupchak specifying Jordan Hill's "on-court" work ethic... Ha-ha...
Kupchak on Hill: "Jordan’s frontcourt versatility is a benefit to our roster and his on-court work ethic is something we value on our team."
Per the Lakers, Jordan Hill has been officially signed. Been a busy week for the El Segundo pen. AK
The Lakers had to wait for Nick Young to sign before Jordan Hill - was primarily the cause of delay - for cap reasons
The Lakers agreed to sign Jordan Hill - and then they signed Jordan Hill - there was nothing in between that
Hopefully in the next 24 hours or less I'll have more detail on the team "option" in Jordan Hill's 2nd year
Good news for the non-conspiracy buffs - Jordan HIll has signed with the Lakers - can't be traded until 1/15/15 - so enough with that please
For the record … I’m not saying Love isn’t a great player nor am I saying he wouldn’t win with LeBron. I’m just seeking perspective here.
In other words, at the end of the boxing match, both fighters claiming victory. We go to the scorecards now (Monday's closing arguments)
Donald's lawyer says they've proven Shelly and her lawyers orchestrated the mental capacity issue so they could sell the team
Flip side of argument on “elite star" Kevin Love not winning: do his numbers remain the same on a good team w/ a fellow star? Probably not.
Shelly's attorney will ask the judge for an ruling allowing sale to go through, even if Donald appeals (presuming of course, she wins)
Just a quick update: Brian Wilson has a 5.40 ERA, is 1-3 and has 1 save to 2 blown saves. … at $10mil this season.
Russell Wilson is a 93 rating in Madden?! Cmmonnnn ….
According to league sources Andrew Wiggins is expected to sign his rookie contract by the end of the week.
Closing arguments in the Sterling case will be heard Monday at 10am.
Shelly Sterling did not testify today. Donald's attorneys sounded as if they might not call her yesterday so not a major surprise.
Why does everything have to be antibiotic or probiotic? Can't we all just agree to be the best biotics we can be?
I understand taking your time after the last two coaching hires didn't work out, but the Lakers understand August is upon us, right?
Jerry expresses confidence and commitment in Garrett. "This is not a make-or-break situation for Jason."
"Don't Know What You Got (Till It's Gone)" was written about nasal congestion.
And if any team can withstand the loss of a good perimeter defender, it's one with Andre Iguodala, Andrew Bogut and Draymond Green.
Re: Wolves/Dubs trade. The difference between Kevin Love and David Lee is greater than the difference between Klay Thompson and Kevin Martin
Annual reminder of who is in the driver's seat for the Cowboys: http://t.co/k2Dm0nw5Iv
Just to clarify, the No.3 center Clifford described would be a veteran-minimum level player. Just insurance/practice guy.
I want to move to Philadelphia and become Joel Embiid's personal beat reporter.
YOU HAPPY NOW, BRIAN CASHMAN?
Good try, good effort, Bart
There are 6-7 folks here everyday w/ no connection to the case, but like good theater. I'm now more interested in them, than the lawyers
Gotta waive the five-year HOF eligibility period for Bartolo if he pulls this off.
Jumping in Studio with Spence and Gordon on 97.5 FM.
One of the things I like most about "Donald Sterling court" are all the "watchers" who show up everyday for entertainment
League source insists Bulls not serious about Love. Says the Bulls won't pay Gasol, Noah, & Love & only be able to play 2 at a time.
is the Bartolo Colon game on TV
Clarification: Maurice Hurt was placed on non-football injury list. Jason Hatcher, Leonard Hankerson, Stephen Bowen all on the PUP list.
While others criticize Erin Andrews, she just continues to be employed, make good money and live her life. I'm not going to hate.
Claiming Casspi off waivers would enable Kings to secure his rights without messing with free agency ... IF they are only team to claim him
I believe they're all keeping their day jobs, fwiw. Congrats to all. Joe B, Scott McBrien, Drew Nicholas also listed as Big 10 folk.
The NBA equivalent of Bartolo Colon pitching a perfect game is what, Eddy Curry quadruple double?
Omri Casspi has already publicly expressed interest in returning to Kings and word is Sacramento is planning to put in a waiver claim on him
Jerrett was last year's Josh Huestis, but he got a little NBA money at the end of the season and presumably a playoff share.
Hadn't noticed that OKC essentially gave Grant Jerrett a first-round rookie contract this summer. 2 guaranteed years + 2 non-guaranteed.
It's July 23. Stop it, beer. http://t.co/F4ij6PNmzT
That means a lot of time for other teams to now adjust. Minny doing what they should - slow play until a decision has to be made.
Re: Dungy -- Change is disruptive. Of course. You get over it. That’s what progress is -- the collective act of getting over it.
Bad news, Bulls are shooting down idea that there was a deadline placed on deal. Pack a lunch, this might take awhile.
Good news? TWolves still feel the Bulls latest offer is the best on the table. ....
If the Bulls were really serious about Love, they would have made this offer two weeks ago and used Pau's money on, like, Trevor Ariza.
The ideal when you're trading away a superstar is to get a potential replacement franchise player. Only guy that qualifies is Wiggins.
The Bulls' new push for Love has to be a leverage play by the Wolves. Taj/Mirotic/McBuckets is a good offer but doesn't touch Wiggins.
Quick reminder on Kevin Love as the “Elite Superstar”" … he’s never made the playoffs. TOP-tier superstars tend to do that.
Be fun to watch Roberts and Price in a free-throw contest.
New Hornet Brian Roberts led NBA in FT% last season at 94%. Assistant coach Mark Price shot better than 94% in 3 consecutive seasons.
New Orleans, as expected, has released newly acquired forward Omri Casspi, who will find new team in free agency if he clears waivers
Raptors will hold a portion of training camp in Vancouver, practicing on Oct 3-4, facing Kings on Oct 5. They'll open camp in TO on Sept 29
Oreos are the Doritos of the sweets game, at least from a flavor innovation perspective.
Trying to think of a non-selfish angle to rip Raptors for not going away for entire week of training camp. Struggling.
I would like to buy ONE fantasy football guide, so which is the best/most comprehensive/most insightful?
