Mike Mazzeo

Kirilenko said he hadn't spoke to Hollins very much just yet, but both are going to Basketball Without Borders in South Africa shortly

Mike Mazzeo

Whoa MT @SportsTaxMan $266,877 = the daily combined amount that the #Yankees are paying: Sabathia, Tanaka, Pineda & Nova (all are on DL)

Mike Mazzeo

Kirilenko joked re: Prokhorov's 5-year plan that getting married is nothing, just a technicality "but I hope we can deliver on his promise."

Mike Mazzeo

Will have more from Kirilenko coming on the blog shortly ...

Great job of describing this whole story. Fascinating read. RT @evandrellich: The full Brady Aiken story: houstonchronicle.com/sports/astros/…

Tim Bontemps

Can also confirm earlier reports that @Tim Hardaway Jr will be joining @Mason Plumlee in Vegas on the Select Team.

Tim Bontemps

Making the Select Team is usually a step towards making it into the U.S. national team pool.

Tim Bontemps

Can confirm @Adrian Wojnarowski's earlier report that @Mason Plumlee will be playing on the U.S. Select Team. Good experience for him.

Silver says he was moved by the LeBron James letter in @SInow announcing his decision to return to Cleveland.

Tim Bontemps

Silver says league will continue to do everything in it's power to remove Sterling as soon as possible.

Tim Bontemps

Silver says he cannot say with certainty that Sterling's will no longer own the team by the start of next season because it's in the courts.
