Latest NBA News & Notes has an official "Countdown to tipoff" timer on their site. As of this blog entry, there's just 66 days until the 2007-08 NBA season begins!

According to Miami Herald:

“Veteran guard Gary Payton is not expected to return to the Miami Heat next season. Heat coach Pat Riley said Thursday that while the 17-year veteran Payton is unlikely to return, the team has interest in signing free agent forward P.J. Brown and are hoping to re-sign forward James Posey. Payton averaged 6.6 points in two seasons with Miami, and helped the Heat win the 2006 NBA title. Payton said several times last year that he's considering retirement, but the nine-time All-Star hasn't decided, yet.” reports:

After evaluating his physical condition to determine whether he would make a comeback, Reggie Miller told The Indianapolis Star late Thursday that he will remain retired and not return to play in the NBA.
