NBA Rumors for Tuesday, July 28

InsideHoops NBA rumors updated 11:30 a.m. ET. More stories and other news also appears on the InsideHoops basketball blog.

nba rumors The Knicks are searching for a new head coach – the Westchester Knicks, that is. Former Bulls sniper Craig Hodges, a triangle disciple of Phil Jackson who took over as their D-League head coach for fired Kevin Whitted late last season, has been let go, according to sources. He was 0-4 as interim head coach and his contract has not been renewed. NY Post

Westchester GM Allan Houston, who is gaining a stronger foothold within the organization, is searching for a successor as the D-League Knicks look for a fresh start after last season’s team was a success in the stands but a disaster in the standings at 10-40. NY Post

nba rumors This all leaves Rivers facing an important question: Can the Clippers reel Jamal Crawford back in? It doesn’t take a deep in-between-the-lines read of Crawford’s social media activity to know where the Clippers stand with him. He’s been repeatedly asked whether or not he’ll be a Clipper next season on Twitter, and he’s issued responses like “I’m not a (free agent), wish, but I’m not ... So, (you) gotta ask Doc.” OC Register

When the media has asked Rivers about Crawford’s future with the team, he’s said the team wants to have him back because he appreciates his unique ability to score off the bench. However, persistent trade rumors and other events this summer might have Crawford feeling differently. OC Register

Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer has entered a plea of not guilty in his driving under the influence case, according to his attorney. Budenholzer entered the plea in Fulton County State Court last week in writing with the court and Judge Diane E. Bessens. The court has a scheduled plea and arraignment hearing tomorrow at 9 a.m. With the filing of the plea and two motions, neither Budenholzer nor his attorney Michael Hawkins will attend. The plea and motions were filed with the court on July 22. Atlanta Journal Constitution


nba rumors Phil Jackson handed out contracts over the summer worth a combined $96 million to Lopez, Arron Afflalo, Derrick Williams and Kyle O’Quinn. The only max-contract candidate who seriously considered the Knicks was Greg Monroe, who instead signed with Milwaukee. “One problem is the state and the city tax here. There are places like Texas and Florida that have none of these taxes,” Jackson told Rosen. “Even so, New York is still a big draw. Nothing can duplicate the lifestyle here.” NY Daily News

Jackson again explained trading J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert by pointing out their flaws. In his previous interview with Rosen, Jackson said Smith “exhibited delinquent behavior.” In the story published Monday, Jackson essentially called Smith too selfish for the triangle. “As I’ve mentioned before, J.R. was more interested in hunting for his own shots than in buying into the triangle. Plus, he has a player’s option for next season that would limit our flexibility. NY Daily News

nba rumors Mike Miller will soon be searching for his third team this offseason, and the Mavericks might be the landing spot. Earlier this week, Cleveland traded Miller to Portland in an effort to get save luxury-tax money. Now, according to ESPN's Marc Stein, the Trail Blazers plan to release Miller and the Grizzlies, Thunder and Mavericks are 'expected suitors' for Miller. Dallas Morning News

The Dallas Mavericks announced today that they have signed free agent forwards Jamil Wilson and Brandon Ashley. Until we hear otherwise, we will assume these are non-guaranteed deals that merely bring these two players to training camp. InsideHoops

nba rumors No one enjoyed himself more than Jae Crowder yesterday. The forward, whose five-year, $35 million contract was made official at the Celtics practice facility, called out from the podium to his family, best friend, agent, agent’s family and college coach — who were all on hand. But it was the other five players seated beside Crowder who especially made the moment worthwhile. David Lee, Amir Johnson, Jonas Jerebko and Perry Jones are proof that the Celtics are trying to improve on last season’s 40-win finish. Boston Herald

The Boston Celtics announced today that they have re-signed forward Jae Crowder. “Jae epitomizes everything that we look for in a Celtic,” said Celtics President of Basketball Operations Danny Ainge. “His infectious energy on both ends of the court and his versatile skill set enabled him to win over both the coaching staff and our fan base after his acquisition last season.” InsideHoops

nba rumors The Indiana Pacers announced Monday they have re-signed veteran free agent Lavoy Allen to a contract. “We think he’s ready to step in and play more minutes at two different positions,” said Pacers President of Basketball Operations Larry Bird. “This is a great opportunity for him to play night in and night out at a high level.” InsideHoops

The Indiana Pacers announced Monday they have re-signed Shayne Whittington and signed Glenn Robinson III and Rakeem Christmas. Whittington, a 6-11, 250-pound forward/center out of Western Michigan University, is entering his second season in the NBA after signing with the Pacers last year as an undrafted rookie. With the Pacers, he appeared in 20 games during the 2014-15 season. He was also assigned to play with the Fort Wayne Mad Ants of the NBA D-League during their playoff run that resulted in a trip to the NBA D-League Finals. Whittington appeared in five postseason games with the Mad Ants, averaging 4.6 points and 4.8 rebounds. InsideHoops

nba rumors The Cleveland Cavaliers have re-signed guard Matthew Dellavedova, General Manager David Griffin announced today from Cleveland Clinic Courts. Dellavedova played in 67 games (13 starts) in the 2014-15 regular season, averaging 4.8 points, 1.9 rebounds and 3.0 assists in 20.6 minutes per game. InsideHoops

The Miami HEAT announced today that they have waived forward Henry Walker. (Yes, Henry Walker is the player formerly known as Bill Walker.) InsideHoops

Goran Dragic of the Miami Heat is not expected to play for Slovenia in the EuroBasket tournament in September. Heat president Pat Riley met with Dragic about his invitation to join the team, and it was collectively decided that it would be in the point guard's best interests to spend the rest of the summer preparing for his first full year in Miami.
