Makes sense, owner is from india so it be cool for his kings to have him on the summer league roster. Doubt he makes it on the NBA roster but nonetheless this a great move to help increase basketball popularity in India and all nearby countries

Kind of happy for him. Refreshing change.

The Kings signing Bhullar is a pure publicity stunt. I wouldn't normally care about summer league invites, but I saw his workouts. The guy isn't even close to being in shape, and he can barely move. He shouldn't get an invite just because he's Indian.

well when the owner is indian, i am inclined to believe he will help out his fellow countryman while also gaining support in a market with over 1 billion people.

would not be surprised if he signed a non-guaranteed contract so they could sell his jersey.

Sources told ESPN.com that Knicks officials, while not willing to trumpet it publicly with free agency fast approaching, are quietly confident about their odds of retaining Anthony thanks in part to the idea that new team president Phil Jackson and the high-scoring forward have "connected" to some degree.

One source close to the process told ESPN.com's Ramona Shelburne, furthermore, that Jackson is planning to make a determined attempt to try to recruit his former Los Angeles Lakers center Pau Gasol to replace the freshly traded Tyson Chandler alongside Anthony on the Knicks' front line, despite the fact New York is limited to offering Gasol less than $4 million for next season.

It says something about the wider perception of Houston that the Rockets, by reportedly settling on a mundane roster move — making Chandler Parsons a restricted free agent this summer, as reported first by Yahoo and the Houston Chronicle — have spawned a host of theories about how the move connects with their pursuit of Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Love.

The Rockets are the NBA’s new bogeyman after dealing for James Harden and convincing Dwight Howard to take less money and leave the Lakers. They are what the Lakers were just two years ago — the dread rival other teams assume, with an eye roll and a shrug, will somehow pull off the heist of another star. Fans, media, and even a few front-office executives from other teams overstate Houston’s cap flexibility and collection of trade assets.

The Rockets have a choice with Parsons: decline his insanely cheap $964,750 team option for next season and make him a restricted free agent now, or ride out that option and watch Parsons walk into unrestricted free agency in July 2015. The choice is born out of the four-year contract Houston signed Parsons to, and out of the quirky rules and trends governing how teams compensate second-round picks.

A four-year contract for a second-round pick gives a team control of a player at a cheap price for the longest possible time. Houston was among three or four teams that over the last decade have pioneered the practice of hard negotiations to get their second-rounders on four-year deals. But there’s a trade-off: Have a second-rounder on the books for four seasons under the same deal, and he becomes an unrestricted free agent after Year 4.

This is what has happened to Lance Stephenson. The Pacers chose to keep Stephenson under the terms of his first contract for all four seasons, and Stephenson is now set to be an unrestricted free agent as a result.

Houston will get matching rights now on Parsons, who immediately becomes one of the most desirable wing free agents available. Gordon Hayward’s agent is probably not happy another young wing guy, one with a better NBA track record, will join Hayward in restricted free agency.

But the move comes at a cost for Houston, too. Let’s say Parsons produces about $10 million of on-court value per season, and will come in around that number every season over the next half decade. Houston is passing up a chance to get that $10 million in hoops value next season for one-tenth the price.

Assuming Houston re-signs Parsons in July, the move also cuts into the Rockets’ potential cap space for 2015, taking them out of the max-level free-agent sweepstakes that summer. Houston with Parsons at market price can’t plausibly get more than $10 million or so in cap room a year from now.

Which is why people assumed immediately upon reading this week’s Parsons news that Houston must have something cooking now. In reality, Houston has been leaning toward going this route for at least a year, according to several sources familiar with the situation. On a very basic level, the team fears Parsons’s entry into unrestricted free agency. Houston has a nice relationship with Parsons’s lead agents, Dan Fegan and Happy Walters, but Fegan is a powerhouse who steers clients toward the biggest windfall. Incumbent teams still almost always keep their guys, but there is at least some risk in unfettered courtship.

Making Parsons a restricted free agent gives Houston control of the process. It may also depress Parsons’s market value. There are always one or two restricted free agents who sit untouched for weeks, since teams with cap room just assume the incumbent team will match any offer. What’s the point of tying up your cap space for three days for nothing?

Gerald Henderson was probably the best example from last year’s free-agency class. Nikola Pekovic’s restricted status also repelled suitors, but that could just be because Pekovic is a scary human being in general. And Pekovic ended up squeezing a robust deal from Minnesota even though the market had dried up, leaving him almost no leverage.

I've heard a rumor that Jamario Moon may play summer league as he attempts to make an NBA comeback. Not sure which team. He's 34 years old.

I wouldn't mind Aldrich here.....

Quote:
The Knicks have other free agents in center Cole Aldrich, Shannon Brown, injury-prone Kenyon Martin and point guard Tour’e Murry, whom the Knicks have until Monday to offer a $1 million qualifying offer to make him restricted.

Only Murry has a shot at returning.I suppose you can take that with a grain of salt (Berman has been known to get things wrong on occasion), but the way that he says it so definitively suggests to me that he has a pretty good inkling of what the Knicks’ plans are regarding ol’ King Cole. If Berman writes the truth, then that would be a shame. as Aldrich is more than capable of being a member of the Knicks rotation.

Though, I understand we could easily just sign Aldrich outright and fill our need for that missing 7ft C.

Armed with an offer that no else in the NBA can make – a chance to partner with Carmelo Anthony on an instant championship contender – the Phoenix Suns are planning an aggressive pursuit of LeBron James on Tuesday, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

Suns officials understand the bid will be something of a long shot, but are determined to get a meeting with James to convince him how the possibilities of two full max contracts, a roster stocked with talented, young players and the chance to pick the superstar free-agent partner of his choice ought to make Phoenix one of his most appealing suitors.

Phoenix is determined to emerge as a legitimate destination for James and Anthony, who have privately shared an affinity for playing with each other in the NBA. Salary-cap structures make it prohibitive for teams elsewhere to fit these two stars together without completely gutting a roster, but Phoenix's general manager Ryan McDonough has constructed a far different reality to sell them in potential meetings next week, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

The Suns have $33.5 million in salary-cap space and could shed the next $10 million needed to sign James and Anthony to maximum contracts without unloading the young core of guards Eric Bledsoe and Goran Dragic and center Miles Plumlee that pushed the franchise to 48 victories in the Western Conference last season. The Suns drafted North Carolina State's T.J. Warren, a scoring forward, Syracuse guard Tyler Ennis and Serbian scorer Bogdan Bogdanovich in the first round of Thursday's NBA draft.

Within hours of free agency starting on Tuesday, James ($20.7 million) and Anthony ($22.4 million) have max contract starting salaries that are easily reachable for the Suns. The Suns' flexibility allows for James to pick any free agent – this summer or next – for himself. It could be Anthony or Chris Bosh this summer, Kevin Love next summer.

The Suns have three first-round draft picks in 2015, and the picks could help the shape the roster with deals for veteran players, or infuse more young talent – or both – based on whatever intrigues the best player on the planet.
Suns could be a sleeper team, but only if Melo and Lebron really want to play with each other. I personally think Lebron will stay in Miami and Melo will end up signing with the Rockets, but only time will tell.

Bulls, not surprisingly, are trying to deal Boozer and Dunleavy. The Raps should consider a play for Dunleavy.

also, if lebron goes ahead with his plan of going for a max contract, he'll regain a lot of the respect I lost for him 4 years ago. Even at max, he's still a bargain. Let Bosh and Wade take less, especially dwayne who's not a max player anymore. Wade at 12, Bosh at 18 and lebron at max and I'm ok with that.
