Our morning look around the NBA with stories worth reading and notes that are not their own post here at PBT.

Andre Iguodala is impressing at Sixers camp.

Shawn Kemp award contestant: DeSagana Diop said that he is 25 lbs overweight.

The Lakers and Knicks lead the league with the highest ticket prices. As to be expected. The Miami Heat are third, the Bulls are fourth.

Eddy Curry has yet to practice with the Heat or talk to the media in Miami. I know, we’re all shocked.

There has been very little talk about Arron Afflalo, a player a lot of GMs covet who is a restricted free agent. The Nuggets are making progress toward re-signing him.

Luc Richard Mbah a Moute will remain with the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Knicks may add Mo Evans, who spent most of his summer in New York anyway as a member of the union’s bargaining team.

Drew Gooden is saying he still has pain in his foot, not good for a player who has battled plantar fasciitis for a while now. All that rest and here we are.

Interesting thoughts about Gerald Green joining the Lakers.

Marco Belinelli signed a qualifying offer to remain in New Orleans. David Stern did not block the move, which means it is good for “basketball reasons.”

The Bobcats, Raptors, Trail Blazers and Rockets all would like to land the PBT personal favorite Reggie Williams.

Shelden Williams signed on to be a New Jersey Net.

Lazar Hayward has goes from the Timberwolves to the Thunder. Nice upgrade.

Boris Diaw — all 6’8” of him — is going to spend some time at the center spot for the Bobcats.

Ben Wallace got probation on his DUI and gun charges.

Under Armour and the the NBA now have a deal. This means Under Armour can use NBA logos and jersys in their advertising.

Watch Blake Griffin hit a half court shot. Sitting down.

Don’t worry, rookie hazing is alive and well in the NBA.
