nba rumors Though he was mentioned in trade rumors previously, the Heat has indicated to Josh McRoberts’ camp that he’s in the team’s plans for this season, his agent said, adding Miami called to go over his offseason training and make sure everyone is on the same page. Miami Herald Blog

McRoberts will make $5.8 million this season and has a $6 million player option for 2017-18. But the Heat will need to dump someone with a guaranteed deal if it wants to keep point guard Briante Weber. Free agent pickups this summer cannot be dealt until Dec. 15. Miami Herald Blog

nba rumors If you’re looking for the Warriors on the radio this season, you’ll be looking for a different station. Golden State announced this morning it was dissolving its long-time partnership with KNBR 680, broadcasting its games instead on 95.7 The Game, a relatively new Bay Area sportstalk radio station on the FM dial. “We’re excited about our new partnership with 95.7 The Game and the opportunity to provide our fans with increased coverage of the Warriors in a centralized location,” said Warriors President Rick Welts, in a statement. San Francisco Chronicle

The Larry O'Brien trophy made a stop in Canada on Thursday, as the Cleveland Cavaliers continue celebrating their NBA championship. Tristan Thompson brought the trophy to his hometown of Toronto and to the top of the city's iconic CN Tower, the tallest structure in the city. Thompson took a picture at the tower and captioned it with a very fitting lyric. ESPN.com

The Lakers signed third-year center Tarik Black on Wednesday to a contract worth a reported $13 million over two seasons. The deal, which was agreed to and reported in July, gives the Lakers 15 players under contract with training camp little more than a month away. “Tarik is a player whose strengths are well-suited for the style of OC Register

One Oklahoman has taken action following the departure of Kevin Durant in free agency ... a potentially city-changing action. How so? By petitioning Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin and Stewart Hoffman – the mayor of Durant, Oklahoma –to change the name of the city to Westbrook, Oklahoma, to highlight the Thunder's All-Star point guard. Oklahoman

nba rumors Flanked by his wife and two daughters, Kobe Bryant grinned wide Wednesday as the Los Angeles City Council declared Aug. 24 as Kobe Bryant Day. Bryant’s wife, Vanessa, is pregnant with the couple’s third daughter and the retired Lakers superstar told his other two girls, Natalia and Gianna, they would need to help explain to their sister why Bryant had a day named in his honor. OC Register

Bryant has moved fully into his post-playing career, focusing on philanthropy and business endeavors, including a $100 million investment fund he announced on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange on Monday. He said phasing into the new chapter has not been a challenge. “It’s a process that I’ve been on for 17 years,” he said, “trying to figure out what came next.” OC Register

"I think 24 grew to have more perspective," Bryant said. "Eight was like a racehorse: You've got the blinders on, you see one thing, you're going after it. Twenty-four, you start getting a little broad[er] perspective, you have a little more awareness." ESPN.com

nba rumors On Tuesday, Steven Adams brought Thunder teammates, coaches and staff to the Ronald McDonald House in Auckland, New Zealand, to support a charity in his native country. Then, he put them to work. Adams, Nick Collison and Andre Roberson represented the Thunder at the Steven Adams Camps in Auckland this week. The trio was flooded by campers wearing T-shirts with a clever design on the front: the lines of a basketball with Adams’ trademark mustache across the middle. Each shirt also had Adams’ No. 12 on the back. Oklahoman

The Timberwolves are adding backcourt depth to their training camp roster, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein, who reported Wednesday that the team has signed guards John Lucas III and Toure’ Murry to training camp deals. Minnesota has 15 on its roster, so Lucas or Murry will have to beat someone out for a spot. St Paul Pioneer Press

nba rumors Boston Celtics big man Kelly Olynyk understands why Evan Turner had to depart this summer, but that didn't make saying goodbye to one of his best friends on the Celtics' roster any easier. During Turner's two seasons with Boston, he didn't just emerge as a versatile weapon that coach Brad Stevens could use in any situation, but Turner also forged what seemed like a rather unexpected bond with Olynyk that extended off the court. ESPN Boston

In a summer filled with optimism, Turner's departure has been about the only real negative for the Celtics. Boston's limited rights to Turner -- as well as blossoming guard depth -- ensured the Celtics wouldn't have the sort of money to commit, and Turner signed a four-year, $70 million deal with the Portland Trail Blazers. ESPN Boston

The Dallas Mavericks will open their seven-game preseason schedule on Oct. 1 at 7 p.m. in Shreveport against the host New Orleans Pelicans.

A trio of basketball players with Colorado ties were selected in the NBA Development League expansion draft on Wednesday. Former Nuggets Gary Forbes and Jamaal Franklin, and ThunderRidge alum Matt Bouldin were picked by the Long Island Nets. Denver Post
