News from June 28.

TRADE: Cleveland traded Jiri Welsch to Milwaukee for a 2006 2nd round
draft pick.

TRADE: Portland traded the #3 draft pick to Utah for the #6 draft pick,
the #27 draft pick, and a 2006 1st round draft pick (lottery protected
through 2010) that originally belonged to Detroit. [This trade occurred
before the 1:00 pm draft day trade announcement freeze, so I'm listing it
up top instead of with the draft results trades (trades involving picks
made after the deadline could not be announce until after the last pick in
the trade had been made).]

The NBA players voted approval for the new Collective Bargaining
Agreement.

Philadelphia extended qualifying offers to Samuel Dalembert, Willie Green,
and Kyle Korver, making them restricted free agents.

Fred Hoiberg (Min) underwent heart surgery to correct an enlarged aortic
root.

Toronto made qualifying offers to Matt Bonner and Pape Sow, making them
restricted free agents. [thanks to Timothy Walton]
