Hezonja clutch in Summer League debut

Mario Hezonja, the No. 5 pick in the 2015 NBA draft, made a go-ahead 3-pointer with 12.9 seconds left to give the Magic a 75-74 OT win over the Clippers. Hezonja finished with 12 points and made 2-of-5 3-pointers.

Arnovitz on Aldridge/Blazers split

Kevin Arnovitz writes of Portland's attempts to keep LaMarcus Aldridge in town: "The Blazers had effectively been engaged in a three-year recruiting effort, marriage counseling between team and star." Blazers kept door open

Bonus basketball in Orlando

Aaron Gordon's 22 points and 15 rebounds weren't enough to get the Magic's "Blue" team a victory in regulation, so they'll head to a 2-minute OT session against the Clippers in Summer League action.

To that end, James doesn't plan to start talks with Cavs until Tristan Thompson's deal is settled. Currently those talks are stalled.

Brian Windhorst @WindhorstESPN

Cavs indeed have interest in David West. But LeBron James has no plans to communicate with anyone while still a free agent, sources said.

Aldridge picks the Spurs

The free agent tweeted, "I'm happy to say I'm going home to Texas and will be a Spur!! I'm excited to join the team and be close to my family and friends." His deal will be a four-year max contract worth more than $80M, with an opt-out after the third year, according to ESPN's Marc Stein. Story

San Antonio now favorites in the West

After agreeing to a deal with LaMarcus Aldridge, San Antonio's odds to win the West dropped to 2-1, besting Oklahoma City and defending champ Golden State (both 5-1). Gregg Popovich's squad is 4-1 to win it all, behind only Cleveland (9-4).

Aaron Gordon off strong summer start

The second-year Magic forward, who averaged just 5.2 PPG as a rookie last season, has 18 points and 9 rebounds at halftime to give Orlando a 5-point lead over the Clippers on the first day of Summer League action.

Tim MacMahon @espn_macmahon

Mavs hope to sign JJ Barea and Jeremy Lin. Have $2.8M exception, can create $2.6M slot by stretching Ray Felton. Both might get more $.

Marc Stein @ESPNSteinLine

ESPN sources say Mavs firmly in mix for Jeremy Lin -- who broke into NBA as a Dallas summer leaguer -- but Lin can make more money elsewhere

Amin Elhassan @AminESPN

Hezonja wearing #23, I'm sure that was just the number the equipment manager handed him...lol

Popovich intends to coach out contract

Gregg Popovich will look to complete the five-year contract he signed last summer, sources tell ESPN's Marc Stein. Adding LaMarcus Aldridge, sources say, all but clinches that he will indeed coach beyond Tim Duncan's playing career.

Southwest C/PF duos: Duncan/Aldridge Gasol/Randolph Jordan/Nowitzki Howard/Jones Asik/Davis Decent amount of big talent in the division.

Marc Stein @ESPNSteinLine

Signing of Aldridge all but clinches notion that Popovich, as we've been writing for a year now, will NOT go out when Tim Duncan goes out

Marc Stein @ESPNSteinLine

It only took five championships and nearly 20 years ... but the San Antonio Spurs are the darlings of free agency

Aldridge could give Duncan more rest

Signing Aldridge would allow the Spurs to rest Tim Duncan more. On the second night of back-to-back games last season, Duncan averaged 12.5 PPG and 8.1 RPG while playing just under 27 minutes. Aldridge averaged 22 points and almost 10 rebounds in 35 minutes a game on no days rest.
