Wizards GM Tommy Sheppard says John Wall has never asked him for a trade. Says he and Wall talk about every other day.

Joe Harris and Davis Bertans just reportedly got guaranteed $155 million between the two of them. You want a price on shooting, there it is.

Gordon Hayward and his agent, Mark Bartelstein, win the offseason. $120 million over four years? Unbelievable.

First De'Aaron Fox, now Donovan Mitchell and Jayson Tatum shouldn't be far behind on rookie max extensions. Fairly easy decisions for all three franchises.

Have to wonder if the fact that the Raptors won’t play in Toronto for most if not all of the season played a role in Serge Ibaka and Marc Gasol’s decision to sign elsewhere.

An idea the NBA should consider: Team LeBron should wear No. 8. Team Giannis, No. 24. All of them.

The NBA’s bubble court is pretty sweet.

Danny Green says his fiance has received death threats in the aftermath of Green's missed three in the closing seconds of Game 5. Get a grip, Lakers fans.

Mike D’Antoni, asked about his teams lack of size: “All our guys can touch the rim.”

Masai Ujiri fired the coach of the year, rolled the dice on a rookie NBA head coach, traded away a franchise stalwart for an injured star on an expiring deal, and won a championship. That's about as good a year as you will ever see.

A decade from now, I hope Bill Belichick, Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski do a televised special where they explain exactly what happened in New England these last two years.

Column: In a single tweet, Daryl Morey highlighted the NBA's relationship with an oppressive government and shined a light on a reality: The NBA is fine with personnel engaging on social issues, just not ones that affect the bottom line

That was about $35,000 in flop fines in one sequence.
