    Columbian: Blazers won’t rule out signing Oden again
    “As long as he’s working hard and his rehab is going well,” Cho said of Oden, who had season-ending microfracture surgery on his left knee in mid-November. “He’ll be a priority. ... Greg is 23, 7-feet, 280 pounds. It’s something to consider.”

    Rip City Project: A look at Portland’s offseason contract decisions
    "Wallace is under contract through 2013, but can opt out after next season. My gut tells me he won’t, because the new CBA will likely feature a lower salary cap and he won’t be able to receive nearly the $10.5 million per year he’s getting on this contract. Still, Crash is only 28, and he’s been such a difference-maker on both ends of the floor since coming to Portland from Charlotte in February that I can’t think of a single reason why the Blazers shouldn’t try to lock him up long-term."

    CBS: Blazers Interested In Nuggets Big Man Nene Hilario?
    "Nuggets and Nene are not close to an agreement on an extension, sources say. Haven't discussed terms in weeks. Nene is inclined to stay in Denver. But there will be a robust market for 28-year old center. Houston, Portland possibilities. "

    Oregon Live: Former Blazer Dante Cunningham faces drug-possession charge after traffic stop
    "Charlotte Bobcats forward Dante Cunningham faces a drug-possession charge after police found a small amount of marijuana in his pickup during a traffic stop in suburban Philadelphia."

    Oregon Live: NBA High-5: Nothing soft about Mavericks, who bear down for Game 1 victory against Lakers
    "We felt like we gave the game away," Jackson said. "I'm not so sure Dallas didn't outplay us, but the players felt like we gave it away."

    Ball Don't Lie: Grizzlies owner admits they’ve been lucky
    "I've been wrong about a lot of things," said owner Mike Heisley. "I was wrong about Allen Iverson and we were wrong about [Hasheem] Thabeet. I said this when we were bad so I have to say it now, too. A lot of this is pure luck."

    The Basketball Jones: 2011 NBA Draft: Western Conference needs
    "Could the Greg Oden Era come to a lackluster end with the Blazers? The team is basically set throughout the positions, but with Oden possibly gone and Marcus Camby basically being one of those players always on the cusp of injury, the Blazers should look for a center that can actually stay healthy. Good luck."

    SLAM: Report: Knicks to Target Samuel Dalembert in Free Agency
    “With the chances slim of adding a quality center with the 17th pick in the draft slim and with an unkind salary cap situation in 2011, sources close to Knicks president Donnie Walsh say he has targeted Kings 6-foot-11 shotblocker Samuel Dalembert as the likeliest free-agent catch this summer. Walsh’s old-school principles have made adding a big, bruising starting defensive center to play alongside power forward Amar’e Stoudemire as his No. 1 priority."

    SLAM: Blake Griffin: 2011 NBA Rookie of the Yea
    "Griffin is the fifth player in franchise history to win the rookie award. Terry Cummings won it in the 1982-83 season with the San Diego Clippers, and Adrian Dantley, Ernie DiGregorio and Bob McAdoo won it as Buffalo Braves before the franchise moved to California."

    ESPN: Daily Dime
    "Those late March losses to Indy and Charlotte are looking more painful now. Would Boston be down 2-0 to Miami if it hadn't coughed up home court? Perhaps. Now Boston will try to buck its own history, which shows the franchise has lost eight of nine best-of-seven series in which it has fallen behind 2-0."
