Let's Hit The Links…

Some quick notes from around the NBA…

• After some talk about the future for Dwyane Wade, it appears that he’ll sign a max extension on July 12. I understand when people point out that the Heat are aging, because they obviously are, but he can always ask for a trade or wriggle his way out of Miami.

• Nice free agent signing down in Phoenix. The Suns have apparently agreed to a two-year deal with Eric Piatkowski, a.k.a. The Polish Rifle. He should be able to step right in and knock down threes like Tim Thomas was doing.

Eddie Griffin is questioning the motives behind the man who accused him of driving while masturbating. I’m pretty sure we can all guess what Griffin’s motive was. Allegedly, of course.

Pops Mensah-Bonsu will be playing for the Dallas Mavericks’ summer league team. And check the note at the bottom of that link about Josh Powell‘s newborn daughter, named Patience.

• Loved reading through this story and seeing the name Allen Leavell. He was dope, as you old-school heds out there probably recognize.

• How much money various people in San Antonio make. Interesting that the writer didn’t list his salary. In the interest of full disclosure, I’ll admit it: I make $5 per post. Or not.

• Warriors rookie Patrick O’Bryant cooks “a mean cheesecake.” He’s going to be interning at the French Laundry in no time.
