• Report: Rockets trying to land D12 and Josh Smith

Sam Amick of USA Today:

According to two people with knowledge of the situation, the Rockets’ Monday meeting with free agent forward Josh Smith in Los Angeles included a discussion about a possible partnership with him and his childhood friend from Atlanta in Howard.Smith has long been known to be on the Rockets’ radar, but he is not viewed solely as a backup plan to Howard should he decide to sign elsewhere and the possibility remains of another superteam being created with Howard and Smith joining franchise centerpiece James Harden.



• Report: Tony Allen agrees to four year deal to return to Grizzlies

What was first reported by the Memphis Commercial Appeal has since been confirmed by multiple outlets — Allen has agreed to a four-year deal worth $20 million to remain a part of the Grizzlies.

Wow @ Houston! Potential big three of Smoove, D12, and Harden? That would be incredible.

How are they getting Smith? Sign and trade but what would they give Atlanta?

I'd assume they'd need to dump Asik and probably Lin, somehow.

• Sam Amick ✔ @sam_amick

The Kings have pulled their offer (4yr/56mil) for free agent Andre Iguodala & will no longer pursue him, I'm told. Story to come.
1:32 AM - 3 Jul 2013


• Report: Grizzlies reach three-year/3mil deal to keep John Leuer

• The Bucks, who have gutted their team and have plenty of cap space, are shaping up as the leading suitor for J.R. Smith.
But if Smith leaves the Knicks to get more bucks in Milwaukee, he will find himself in a rebuilding program. That’s the decision the Freehold, N.J., native, has to make.

Take less to stay with the hometown Knicks, who can offer a four-year, roughly $25 million contract — which comes to $6.25 million a season after yearly raises — or follow the “green’’ jerseys of Milwaukee or another under-the-cap club willing to make a four-year commitment. The market value is being set for him to get an offer of at least $7 million per year.

• It was only a short time ago when Kyle Korver signing with Brooklyn in free agency was believed to be “in the bag.” That bag has quickly become empty, as the Nets are now reportedly out of the running for Korver’s services.

• Report: Knicks offer Pablo Prigioni two-year deal

As long as Mayo signs with the Bucks, Al keeps his options open, and Pistons blow the farm on Gay I can say this is a successful offseason.

 

Let's go subpar again and luckily get a top 3-4 pick. I can rock with that.

First surprise of week on Dwight front: Sources say Golden State made real impression on Howard in their meeting and have become a factor

 

Marc Stein         @ESPNSteinLine

Rockets/Mavs clearly still have better shot to steal Dwight from Lakers than Warriors. But Dubs, I'm told, have forced way into conversation

Howard and Steph would be a very good combo, just depends on what they have to give up in a sign and trade.

I wonder if the Pelicans plan to play Tyreke Evans at the small forward position. Weight wise, he will be fine. Evans weighs 220 lbs., compared to Josh Smith who weighs 225lbs... The only problem with playing Evans at the small forward position is that they will be giving up a lot of size at that position...
