Could Picking Up Millsap or Vucevic Save Portland's Summer?

The Trail Blazers couldn't get Hassan Whiteside or Chandler Parsons in free agency. Would scooping up an Atlanta forward turn around their fortunes? The beginning of the NBA free agency period has been filled with frustration for Portland Trail Blazers fans. With the Blazers needing help in the frontcourt, Hassan Whiteside became a popular target for big dreamers. Some accounts said the Blazers had a meeting scheduled with him but he ended up opting for the Miami Heat without a word from Portland. Dwight Howard became a hot topic of discussion in June but he swept the Blazers off the...

NBA Free Agency Rumors: Lakers interested in Ryan Anderson, Kent Bazemore, and Tyler Zeller

Here's a bunch more guys Los Angeles could maybe sign. Normally everybody is on the lookout for #WojBombs in the lead-up to NBA Free Agency, but Ramona Shelburne of ESPN set of some fireworks of her own on Thursday night. Instead of just dropping one name on Lakers fans, Shelburne carpet bombed everyone's timelines with five. "The Lakers' priorities in free agency were shooting and rim protection," wrote Shelburne. "Among names I've heard interest in: Ryan Anderson, [Chandler] Parsons, [Nicolas] Batum, [Kent] Bazemore, and Tyler Zeller." The Lakers' and Parsons' mutual interest was already...

Scotto: Brooklyn Nets interested in Ryan Anderson

After the Nets traded Thaddeus Young to the Indiana Pacers on Draft Day, they were left without a starting caliber power forward. Now, Mike Scotto reports they may have interest in former Net, Ryan Anderson. Sources: Brooklyn Nets have interest in Ryan Anderson.

NBA free agency 2016: Marvin Williams is the free agent the Rockets should be chasing

Ryan Anderson will be the Rockets prime target, but Marvin Williams is better. July 1, 2016, in the NBA is a twisted lovechild Christmas Day and Black Friday. After months of wishes and tweets to the Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey, about whom he should sign in the offseason, you finally get to check your Twitter feed that magical morning to see the newest guy or guys who will don the ketchup and mustard. One of the most heavily rumored apples of Morey's eye will be longtime flirt Ryan Anderson. And while he will get paid this offseason, I am hoping it won't be by the...

NBA Free Agency: Wizards connected to Nicolas Batum, Al Horford, Ryan Anderson

With the Wizards completely out of the chase for Kevin Durant, these three players are now their top targets in free agency. Kevin Durant's camp eviscerating any hope the Wizards would have the opportunity to sign him this offseason was not fun, but it was a positive for the Wizards. With their sights off of Durant, they had to move quickly elsewhere. And apparently they've set their top targets for when Friday's free agency frenzy begins. According to ESPN's Marc Stein, the Wizards' top targets are Al Horford, Ryan Anderson and Nic Batum. Names that keep coming up as top targets for the...

Ryan Anderson is realistic, but not a good fit for the Wizards

After the presumed end of the KD2DC movement (Thanks Jake!), it looks like the Wizards will be moving on to their Plan B. J. Michael of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports that the Wizards are now making Ryan Anderson their priority in free agency. Anderson is said to command upwards of $17 million dollars a year on the open market, even as he comes off a difficult, inconsistent season with the Pelicans, which was wrought with trade rumors. Uniting with one of teams that was rumored to be interested in him last season could help Anderson get back on track next season, but spending a majority of their...

Ryan Anderson still seems to be on the table for the Kings

Seemingly no team in the NBA has been more connected to a Free Agent this summer than the Sacramento Kings and Ryan Anderson.  Anderson, of course, is a Sacramento native who played high school ball at Oak Ridge and grew up watching and falling in love with those same Kings teams we did. This isn't the first time the Kings have been connected to Anderson either.  Anderson actually came to Sacramento back in 2012, but the Kings never ended up making an offer to him.  He was a restricted Free Agent at the time, and the Kings opted to instead spend their money on the cheaper Jason...

NBA Free Agency: Ryan Anderson now the Wizards' top target, according to report

The Wizards have been rumored to be interested in the sharpshooting forward since last year's trade deadline. New reporting suggests he may be one of their top free agency targets. As it becomes more and more clear that the Wizards won't have a shot at recruiting Kevin Durant, Washington needs to find a new top target. J. Michael of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports that his sources say the Wizards' new top target in free agency is Ryan Anderson. The question is: How much would it take for the Wizards to win a bidding war for Anderson? It won't be easy, according to Michael: The Wizards will have...
