After courting Carmelo Anthony only to lose him to the extra year New York could offer, the Chicago Bulls have returned to the fold and are in the mix for Kevin Love, ESPN reports. Even though the Cavs still lead the pack — especially if they include Andrew Wiggins in their offer — the Bulls offer an interesting package of players, rather than draft picks. Read More »

So it’s time to update our latest mock draft so you know how things stand going into the ping pong ball portion of the Draft.

Dime Q&A: Iowa State Star Georges Niang & Rapper Moufy, 2 Boston Underdogs

Georges Niang

If you were asked to name all of the NBA players that have truly come from the Boston area, you’d likely struggle after naming Patrick Ewing, Nerlens Noel and Michael-Carter Williams. Of course, there’s former Celtic Dana Barros, current Milwaukee Buck Jeff Adrien and Chris Herren was raised an hour away in Fall River, but the above average basketball fan would have a hard time naming guys after that.

Dime Mock Draft 2.0: Would You Still Take Andrew Wiggins No. 1?

Andrew Wiggins, Joel Embiid

Okay, so maybe this year’s NBA Draft class isn’t quite as good as we thought. There are no LeBrons. No KDs. There might not even be a D-Wade in here. The class from 2003 is much better, and let’s not even go into discussions concerning the ’96 class or 1984. With that being said, there is a ton of talent, and we also have to remember: it’s not even April yet. With so many young players coming out, we can guarantee your opinion of them will be drastically different once we get closer to the summer. Read More »
