FIBA World Cup
The 2019 FIBA World Cup basketball tournament is taking place in China, with 32 national basketball teams from around the world competing from August 31 through September 15. We're posting daily results with top players from each game, and will expand our coverage after the initial early-tournament dust settles.

NBA Free Agency
The 2019 NBA free agency negotiation period began June 30. That's when NBA free agents started agreeing to new deals. Also see our Best NBA Free Agents page.

NBA Summer Leagues
There were three NBA Summer Leagues in 2019. The Salt Lake City Summer League and California Classic ran July 1-3. And then the big main league, Las Vegas NBA Summer League, involving all 30 NBA teams, took place from July 5-15.

NBA Power Rankings
The most important thing in NBA basketball is winning. Win-loss record will always be the biggest measuring stick. For that, see the NBA standings page. But how about teams with similar records, injuries, or records that somehow don't quite tell the full story on how good the team really is? That's subjective, yes. And the standard NBA basketball website measure of such judgement calls are known as NBA power rankings.
