Sixers leaning on McConnell over Fultz

Examinations of Philadelphia 76ers guard Markelle Fultz’s right shoulder will extend through Wednesday in New York and no decision on his next steps is expected until later in the week, league sources told ESPN […]

In recent weeks, the Sixers stopped listening to trade overtures for McConnell, sources said, a reflection of the fact that the organization knows it will be leaning more heavily on him now. McConnell can be a free agent this summer.

Bradley Beal sets record straight

After the Wizards’ last game, Beal was asked by NBA TV’s Dennis Scott to address the report that he wanted out of Washington.

That’s nonsense,” Beal said. “I heard it earlier before the game and I was like if it ain’t come from the horse’s mouth, it wasn’t me. I got this Washington jersey on, I come out and work everyday until otherwise. This is where I want to be.”

DeMarcus Cousins targeting return after Christmas

Warriors center DeMarcus Cousins is targeting a return from his torn Achilles sometime after Christmas, sources told the Bay Area News Group.

According to those sources:

* The determination was made during a meeting on Friday between Cousins and Golden State’s training staff, including head trainer Rick Celebrini.

* Before the meeting, Cousins was hoping to join the lineup during the team’s upcoming five-game trip.

* There have been no setbacks in the recovery process and the decision to push back Cousins’ target date was made so he can regain his conditioning and enter the lineup at peak form.

Jimmer Fredette hopes for another NBA opportunity

With all the success you’ve had in the Chinese Basketball Association, I’m very curious where your interest stands in potentially getting back to play in the NBA?

Jimmer Fredette: I want to have another opportunity in the NBA because there is some unfinished business for me there. After this season is over, I want another NBA chance. This time, I’ll succeed. I feel really good about how I am playing. I know that if I get a chance, I will take advantage of it and be successful and help a team win. I’m excited to see what the future holds. I’m going to finish my contract in China this season and be the best I can be for my team. But after that, I will see what is out there and try to be on a roster for the NBA postseason.
