ROCKETS ROAD TRIP: There's no waiting for July 1 in Houston — the Red Rowdies are already on the road. A group of the Rockets' biggest fans (dubbed the Red Rowdies when Jeff Van Gundy coached there) left the Toyota Center in Houston on Monday for a road trip to destination unknown. They'll meet up with Rockets GM Daryl Morey in an undisclosed city on Thursday, then deliver him to a meeting with one of Houston's big free agent targets. Let's see ... it's 1,090 miles to Chicago (Brad Miller, a top target for the Rockets), 792 miles to Atlanta (Joe Johnson), or a mere 239 miles to Dallas (the offseason home for Bosh).
QUICK FIX: Barely anyone is mentioning Minnesota as a major player in the free agent bonanza, but Timberwolves president David Kahn thinks his team has a shot of making a splash. Shouldn't take long to find out, he predicts to the Star-Tribune. "I'll let you know at about 12:04 a.m. on July 1. Seriously, not to be funny, we'll know," he says.
TWEET OF THE DAY PART I: Charlie Villanueva of the Detroit Pistons took to Twitter to start the NBA's version of an international incident, predicting (or announcing?) that Bosh is leaving Canada's team for South Florida. "Sorry to break Toronto heart, I love that city, but Chris Bosh is heading to Miami," Villanueva offered.
TWEET OF THE DAY PART II: And moments after that tweet, Villanueva decided to break the collective hearts of Clevelanders with this nugget: "You have a better chance seeing me with a Ben Wallace afro, than Lebron going back to Cleveland," the smooth-headed Villanueva posted.
