Paul Millsap Undergoes Procedure For Swelling In Knee
Paul Millsap recently underwent a preventative procedure to reduce mild swelling in his right knee.

"After reviewing the options with Paul to treat his knee and provide him the best long-term care, we agreed, largely due to the time of year, that this was the best method and time to ensure his complete readiness for the start of the regular season," President of Basketball Operations/Head Coach Mike Budenholzer said.

Larry Bird says Pacers ready to offer Paul George a max extension if he wants it
But eventually the lure of a bigger market or a better winning opportunity (like Kevin Durant saw this summer) could prove tempting for George.

Larry Bird spoke with the Indianapolis Star before the season begins and he made it clear: if Paul George wants a max extension, George gets a max extension.

Chris Bosh has failed his physical and will not be cleared for training camp according to Tim Reynolds of the AP.
An additional report by Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald indicates that doctors have found evidence of "some continued clotting" which is believed to be related to one of two previous blood clot episodes. While the complication is not life-threatening if treated, playing with the condition is considered "unrealistic.

Bosh's career is probably over. That's gonna be heartbreaking, but its for his own good.

Report: Kevin Garnett to retire
The Timberwolves were working toward a buyout with Kevin Garnett with theexpectation he'd retire.

It appears both will happen.

Kent Youngblood of the Star Tribune:

Garnett and the Timberwolves came to an agreement Friday and a retirement announcement from Garnett is expected shortly, according to league source.

Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor: Nikola Pekovic out for season, might be bought out
Pekovic is due $23.7 million over the next two seasons. I'm not sure why he'd give any of that up in a buyout. It seems unlikely the 30-year-old center who has missed 205 games – including 70 last season – in his six-year NBA could recoup it elsewhere. His body appears to just be breaking down due to injury.
