Reports: Wizards want David West

According to league sources, the Wizards are pushing to sign David West, who passed up a $12.2M player option with the Pacers next season to become a free agent. Sources told ESPN's Marc Stein that the Wizards or Spurs are the two teams at the top of West's list.

Lot of people asking me about timetable for DeAndre Jordan decision. He has set no deadline but expected today or tomorrow.

Zach Lowe @ZachLowe_NBA

If Nene is really available for nothing/cap space, that's an interesting place for the Mavs to look if DJ returns to Clips.

Broussard: Aldridge on info overload

Free agent LaMarcus Aldridge had a second meeting with the Lakers, but Chris Broussard tells SportsCenter that doesn't matter: "I don't think they can sway him to go to L.A." San Antonio -- and Phoenix -- are still out in front.


Marc Stein @ESPNSteinLine

Concurrent with their pursuit of David West, I'm told Wizards continue to shop Nene but clinging to hope they can trade him into cap space

Countdown to the Body Issue: 3 days

We hope Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried has time to pick up the new Body Issue coming out July 6 in between his preparations for the NBA exhibition game in South Africa later this summer.

But San Antonio remains firmly in David West hunt. Hearing Golden State now highly unlikely for D-West; looks like SA or DC are his spots

Marc Stein @ESPNSteinLine

ESPN sources say Wizards pushing hard to land David West. Would be nice rally to get both Jared Dudley and D-West after losing Paul Pierce

Duncan's salary helping Spurs

How does Tim Duncan's unselfishness help the Spurs? Said Bruce Bowen: "It's because of [Duncan, Ginobili, Parker] not trying to break the bank ... that they've been able to have the luxury of having championships."


Pat Riley: master recruiter

Bruce Bowen was once recruited by Pat Riley. He says Riley's style gives the Heat a chance to lock up LaMarcus Aldridge.


Bill Barnwell @billbarnwell

Seriously wondering whether the Kings just going after every NBA question mark in the hopes of getting Karl to quit.

What convinced Dwyane Wade to stay?

Chris Broussard tells SportsCenter how Wade and the Heat were able to agree on a one-year deal: "He wanted to stay, they wanted to keep him. He just wanted to get back some of the money he's given up over the years."


Royce Young @royceyoung

Why don't the Kings go throw a max offer sheet at Reggie Jackson now? Also, why haven't we heard anything about Reggie Jackson yet?

Aldridge lines up against Jordan

Since the advent of the 3-point line (1979-80 season), LaMarcus Aldridge and Michael Jordan are the only players to lead the NBA in 2-point field goal attempts in 3 consecutive seasons. Aldridge has led in each of the last 3 seasons while Jordan did so in 1995-97 and 1989-92 (4 seasons).

Heat's homegrown talent

Dwyane Wade agreed to a one-year, $20 million deal to remain with the Heat. Over the last 25 years, he is one of three players picked in the top 10 of the NBA draft to win multiple championships with the team that selected him.

Lakers mtg with LaMarcus today lasted 90 mins. Basketball talk from Kupchak, Byron &Mark Madsen (who handles analytics for coaching staff)

Tim MacMahon @espn_macmahon

I hear Mavs' 4-year deal with Wesley Matthews will probably average about $13 million per year. Flexible depending on DeAndre decision.
