NBA Rumors for Tuesday, July 22

InsideHoops NBA rumors updated 3:30 p.m. ET. More NBA rumors stories and other news also appears on the InsideHoops basketball blog.

nba rumors Thomas Robinson underwent surgery to repair the torn ligament in his right thumb he suffered July 15 during an NBA Summer League game against the Atlanta Hawks, the Trail Blazers announced on Tuesday. The Blazers forward's surgery was performed by Dr. Kirk Wong at PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center in Vancouver. Oregonian

nba rumors The impending addition of Evan Turner to the Celtics roster is the kind of low-risk move that the team’s president of basketball operations Danny Ainge prides himself on during a rebuilding period. He finds a young talented player with limited market value (see: Jordan Crawford) and takes a chance that said player is able to bounce back and rebuild his worth in a Celtics uniform. Boston.com Blog

Normally, a promise of ample playing time is a prerequisite for a veteran reclamation project, but that’s not something in place for Turner right now in Boston. The Celtics have a logjam on the roster with 18 players under contract once Turner signs. To make matters worse, the majority of those players play the same position(s) as Turner, who has split time between shooting guard and small forward during his four-year NBA career. Boston.com Blog

nba rumors Maverick Carter, LeBron James' business partner, says he didn't push James to return to the Cleveland Cavaliers, nor did anyone else in the NBA superstar's inner circle. "This was a decision that LeBron made in his heart," Carter told ESPN.com's Jason Whitlock on the Real Talk podcast. "We didn't push him to do it. We don't push him to do anything. If he asks our opinion or what did we think about the pros and the cons, we help him think through it. We don't push him." ESPN.com

"Listen," Carter said, "LeBron's a 29-year-old man with lots of money, got a wife, two kids, one on the way. He makes his own decisions. He doesn't need anyone pushing him any way, and a guy like that, you're not going to push him either way. We'll help him think through things and help him see through things, but he makes his own decision in his heart. Because, ultimately, he has to live with it. I'm not the one who has to show up and play games for any team." ESPN.com

Carter said he wasn't sure if James would have made a different decision if the Heat had beaten San Antonio for the NBA title in June. It would have been Miami's third championship in four years with LeBron on the team. ESPN.com
