Summer agenda: What will Clippers do with their free-agent stars?

The Clippers can’t afford to keep J.J. Redick, Chris Paul and Blake Griffin. The sentiment when a high-payroll playoff team fails to advance past the second round in consecutive seasons is to blow up the roster. Unfortunately for the Clippers, they do not have young players on the cusp of starting.

Rashad McCants believes he would be a $60 million player if not for Khloe Kardashian

Report: Timberwolves, maybe Spurs have interest in Derrick Rose as a free agent

The one thing we know about Derrick Rose‘s free agency this summer is that he will not return to the Knicks. After that, things are wide open. He and his agent say winning is what matters, and Rose can play off the ball (despite his iffy jumper), but

Report: Knicks would like to revisit Ricky Rubio trade talks, eyeing free agents such as P.J. Tucker

The Knicks need a whole lot of things this summer — starting with someone who would give them anything of value for Carmelo Anthony (they may well strike out there) — but at the top of the list should be getting players who can defend. One way to do that, revisit the Ricky Rubio trade discussions they had near the trade deadline. Ian Begley of ESPN said some in the Knicks camp hope to do that.

Kane’s NBA mock draft 1.0: What do Sixers do at No. 3?

The 76ers secured a top-three pick for the fourth straight year in Tuesday’s NBA Draft Lottery. They will pick third overall for the third time during that four-year span courtesy of the pick swap that former GM Sam Hinkie engineered in a 2015 trade with the Kings.  The downside of picking third is that top tier guards Markelle Fultz and Lonzo Ball will almost certainly come off the board with the first two picks. However, there will be plenty of All-Star level prospects remaining for the Sixers to choose from.  With the top two picks all but locked in, you could argue that the draft actually starts when the 76ers go on the clock. 1. Boston Celtics – Markelle Fultz, guard, Washington (6-4/195)

Once again Timberwolves move down NBA draft lottery and will pick seventh

Entering Tuesday night, the Timberwolves never had improved their position in the NBA’s annual game of chance, the May draft lottery. They still haven’t. This time, they dropped down in the draft order for the ninth time in their 19 lottery trips, and they will select seventh overall rather than sixth in the June 22 draft. Turning back the calendar, Tuesday night’s big winners were the Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers, just like the NBA of the 1980s. The Celtics will draft first, the Lakers second and Philadelphia will select third after a past trade enabled them to swap picks with Sacramento. Two point guards — Washington freshman Markelle Fultz and UCLA freshman Lonzo Ball — are generally
