Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard is the latest marquee name to commit to attend the upcoming USA Basketball minicamp, according to league sources. Sources told ESPN.com that Howard, who had to withdraw from the 2012 Olympic team to undergo back surgery, has told USA Basketball officials he plans to attend the Aug. 11-13 gathering in Las Vegas to make known his availability for selection to the 2016 Olympic squad. Also planning to attend, sources said, is two-time Olympian Chris Paul of the Los Angeles Clippers. Paul was a member of the 2008 and 2012 Olympic squads.
Adidas has made a big play for the biggest basketball sneaker free agent of the summer of 2015. The company has submitted a bid of $200 million over 13 years to sign Houston Rockets guard James Harden, sources told ESPN.com. Nike, whose deal with Harden recently expired, has until the end of next week to match the deal or lose him. A $200 million offer is huge, considering it represents half of what the brand paid for 11 seasons as the NBA's official uniform supplier. Earlier this year, Adidas announced that it would not fight to renew that deal, which will see its competitor Nike take over after the 2016-17 season. With incentives, if the deal is consummated, Harden could very well make more from Adidas in the coming years than the Rockets. Harden signed an $80 million contract extension with Houston in 2012 that goes through the 2017-18 season.
Ty Lawson has agreed to make the final season of his contract with non-guaranteed as part of the Houston Rockets' trade for him. The agreement gives the Rockets flexibility to keep Lawson for the 16-17 season at his current salary. With Lawson in rehab for alcohol abuse, the non-guaranteed season gives the Rockets peace of mind should another issue arise.
The Houston Rockets have reached agreement with the Denver Nuggets on a trade for Ty Lawson. Houston will send Kostas Papanikolaou, Pablo Prigioni, Joey Dorsey, Nick Johnson and a lottery-protected 2016 first-round draft pick to Denver. The Nuggets will send a 2017 second-round pick to Houston along with Lawson. After Lawson's second DUI arrest in six months, market interest for him had decreased significantly.
Houston Rockets forward Trevor Ariza, joins "Sports X Radio" to discuss the strides the team took this past season in advancing to the Western Conference Finals.
