Los Angeles Lakers’ Trevor Ariza has ankle surgery, out at least two months

Trevor Ariza will be sidelined about two months after having surgery on his right ankle, the Los Angeles Lakers revealed Wednesday. Ariza, one of 11 new players added by the Lakers in the offseason, underwent an arthroscopic debridement procedure Wednesday. He has missed most of training camp due to the ankle. The Lakers stated Ariza, 36, will be reevaluated in approximately eight weeks. Ariza returned to L.A. for a second stint with the franchise after winning a championship alongside Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol in 2009, signing a veterans minimum contract after being recruited by Russell Westbrook to join shortly after Westbrook was traded from […]

Zach LaVine says this season ‘crucial’ for direction of Chicago Bulls, his own future

Zach LaVine was excited by the Chicago Bulls’ aggressive offseason, but says this campaign is crucial in determining the direction for the team and himself as he enters the final season of his contract. “At the end of the day it’s a business,” LaVine told ESPN on Thursday. “They did what was best for the team and I will continue to go out there and do what’s best for the team as well. This season going forward is going to be extremely crucial not just for me but for everybody. Winning would take care of everything.” Before free agency started and while […]

Ben Simmons won’t report, done with Philadelphia 76ers

In a looming standoff that could have lasting implications for the NBA, Philadelphia 76ers All-Star forward Ben Simmons will not report for the opening of training camp next week and intends to never play another match for the franchise. Simmons, 25, wants a trade out of Philadelphia and told management that he has no plans to wear an NBA uniform again until he’s moved to a new team, sources said. This is setting up a showdown for a Sixers franchise with championship hopes that will be greatly diminished without Simmons on the floor — balancing the likely short-term losses with him sidelined against the […]

Houston Rockets, John Wall working to find trade deal

The Houston Rockets and John Wall have agreed to work together in an effort to find a trade destination for the veteran point guard, as the franchise is committed to moving forward with Kevin Porter Jr. and Jalen Green as its starting backcourt. The commitment to the 20-year-old Porter and 18-year-old Green leaves Wall, a five-time All-Star who was traded to Houston in the Russell Westbrook deal last year, without a starting role. Wall, 31, is not estimated to play for Houston, as team management and Wall mutually decided that a bench role for him wouldn’t be beneficial to either party, sources said.

Aaron Gordon, Denver Nuggets agree to four-year, $92 million extension

Denver Nuggets forward Aaron Gordon has agreed to a four-year, $92 million contract extension, his agent, Calvin Andrews of Klutch Sports, confirmed to the Undefeated Marc J. Spears on Tuesday. The deal, which was first reported by The Athletic, contains a player option for the fourth year in 2025-26, his agent told ESPN. It includes $88 million in base salary and $4 million in incentives, according to ESPN’s Bobby Marks. Gordon, the 11th player this offseason to sign a veteran extension, was dealt to Denver in a March trade that sent veteran shooting guard Gary Harris, rookie R.J. Hampton and Denver’s protected 2025 first-round pick to the […]

Chicago Bulls Sign Forward Alize Johnson to Two-Year Deal

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the 25-year-old power forward has signed a two-year $3.6 million deal with Arturas Karnisovas and Co.   In desperate need of depth at power forward after missing out on both Paul Millsap and LaMarcus Aldridge, Johnson entered the picture as a possibility when the Nets waived him late last week.   On a Monday where the Bulls also reportedly added both Stanley Johnson and Matt Thomas, Alize Johnson is easily the most intriguing signing. He might have the fewest professional matches under his belt, but he does provide better size and physicality for this team to slot into […]

Paul Millsap agrees to deal with Nets

Paul Millsap has agreed to a deal with the Brooklyn Nets, his agent, DeAngelo Simmons, told ESPN on Thursday. Millsap becomes the latest former All-Star to join the Nets over the past few seasons, joining Blake Griffin, Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and James Harden. Millsap’s four All-Star appearances bring Brooklyn’s total up to 38. For the first time since his second year in the league in 2007-08, Millsap failed to average double figures in scoring last campaign. He averaged just 9.0 points and 4.7 rebounds in 56 matches for the Nuggets. Following a trade for Aaron Gordon in late March, Millsap lost the starting job he had held with Denver […]

Sacramento Kings rout Boston Celtics to claim NBA summer league title

Louis King slammed home a two-handed dunk with a little more than two minutes left in the third quarter of the NBA summer league championship game, let out a massive shout and promptly flexed with authority. Fittingly, it was King who dominated for Sacramento and concluded with 21 points to help the Kings cruise to a 100-67 victory over the Boston Celtics on Tuesday night in front of a sparse, masked crowd that barely filled the Thomas & Mack Center’s bottom bowl, an uncommon scene for a title game that has packed the venue in recent years prior to the pandemic. It was Sacramento’s first summer league […]

Phoenix Suns drop third straight, look to ‘regroup’ trailing 3-2 in NBA Finals

If there ever was a time for Monty Williams to come up with one of the adages he has been heralded for, it was after his Phoenix Suns’ 123-119 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 5 of the NBA Finals on Saturday. The loss was Phoenix’s third in a row on the Finals stage after it had dropped three in a row just once all season, back in January. And it came in excruciating fashion: The Suns squandered an early 16-point cushion and fell down 14 in the fourth, only to have their opportunity to take the lead back in the final minute go […]
