  1. New Grizzlies coach Dave Joerger says he’ll play starters less than Lionel Hollins did

    Aug 27, 2013, 4:48 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Four

    The Grizzlies didn’t overly rely on any single player last season. Marc Gasol played 35.0 minutes per game (32nd in the NBA), Mike Conley 34.5 (40th) and Zach Randolph 34.3 (45th). But collectively, Memphis was extremely reliant on its starters Just three other teams – the Warriors, 76ers and Trail Blazers, who had four –…

    Former Los Angeles Lakers coach Jackson sits with Lakers Executive Vice President of Business Operations Buss during the NBA basketball game against the Dallas Mavericks in Los Angeles

    It’s early in the 2027-28 season, and the Lakers have struggled to a 1-4 start. The year before, an aging Kyrie Irving helped lead the Lakers to the North American Conference Finals, but they ran out of gas and were swept by Seattle. Still, the Lakers brought back their core, including Coach Monty Williams, who…

  3. Report: Lamar Odom not missing

    Aug 26, 2013, 4:14 PM EDT

    Lamar Odom

    Lamar Odom’s drug abuse was recently reported by TMZ, and the news organization followed that with a report that Odom is missing. If true, an ugly situation for Odom is getting only uglier. But another report contradicts that one. ESPN: Free-agent forward Lamar Odom is in a Los Angeles hotel, where friends are trying to…

  4. Anderson Varejao saves the day for two stranded travellers

    Anderson Varejao, Ekpe Udoh, Doron Lamb

    Imagine you, like me, speak only English. You’re visiting family in a foreign country where nearly nobody speaks English. When it’s time to fly home, the airport can be a scary place. Your family can go only so far with you before reaching an area only for ticketed passengers. But with very specific and detailed…

  5. Mark Cuban: Bill Clinton is a crazier fan than me

    Former U.S. President Clinton speaks during Nelson Mandela International Day in New York

    Mark Cuban recently appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and, besides talking about Alex Rodriguez and Bud Selig, Cuban detailed the day he met two U.S. presidents.

    Aug 19, 2013, 2:31 PM EDT

    Heat Bulls Basketball

    In the Bulls-Heat playoff series last spring, Nazr Mohammed got involved in an altercation with LeBron James. While LeBron dribbled, Mohammad fouled him, and as they were tangled, LeBron pushed Mohammed to the floor. At that point, the basketball play ended. Mohammed got up and shoved LeBron, who was already looking at a referee while…

  7. How do you pronounce Giannis Antetokounmpo? Don’t ask Bucks fans (video)

    Aug 19, 2013, 1:56 PM EDT

    Giannis Antetokounmpo

    Giannis Antetokounmpo is not a difficult name to pronounce. It sounds exactly how it’s spelled. Somehow – and I really don’t understand how this happened – Milwaukee fans struggled hilariously to say the name of the Bucks’ latest first-round pick (hat tip: Jeremy Schmidt of Bucksketball): Antetokounmpo, a point forward the from Greece who Milwaukee…

  8. Horrifying details of Dan Roundfield’s drowning come to light

    hwk_rounds_071111_2

    Former Hawks All-Star Dan Roundfield drowned while attempting to save his wife in Aruba last year. It was a tragic event, but details had been scarce. Roundfield obviously acted heroically, but a fuller picture would help people understand and remember what Roundfield did. His widow, Bernie Roundfield, realized that and shared her story with Harvey…

  9. Pistons reveal ‘Motor City’ alternate uniforms

    motorcityfront

    The Pistons have worn red, white and blue uniforms for years and years. It’s become a classic look for one of the NBA’s flagship franchises. Aside from a brief – and misguided – foray into teal during the 90s, the Pistons have remained true to that color scheme, a point of pride for Detroit fans.…

  10. Report: Pistons not that interested in Jason Collins, after all

    Aug 11, 2013, 9:38 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks center Jason Collins controls the ball in Atlanta

    The Pistons have just two players who fit well at center, Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe – both of whom project to start for Detroit. If either of those two gets hurt or into foul trouble, the Pistons would be in a bind. So, it’s likely they’ll use their final open roster spot on a…

  11. Report: Grizzlies sign Nick Calathes to two-year, nearly $2 million contract

    Aug 9, 2013, 4:35 PM EDT

    Nick Calathes

    Nick Calathes rated No. 6 in the 2009 NBA Draft, according to John Hollinger’s statistical system – behind only Ty Lawson, Blake Griffin, Tyreke Evans, Austin Daye* and Stephen Curry. Back then, there was nothing Hollinger could do about Calathes falling to No. 45 in the draft. Now an executive for the Grizzlies, Hollinger has…

  12. Report: 76ers offer head-coaching job to Brett Brown

    Brett Brown Spurs

    Finally, the NBA  might actually have 30 active head coaches soon. Or soonish. Or maybe not soon at all.But at least we’re progressing.The 76ers – the last team to hire a head coach – have taken another step, though they’re still moving at a snail’s pace. More than a week after a report the 76ers…

  13. Joe Dumars hopes Josh Smith-Greg Monroe-Andre Drummond frontcourt can take cues from Hawks and Grizzlies

    Aug 7, 2013, 6:12 PM EDT

    Josh Smith, Andre Drummond

    Which team has the best starting frontcourt in the NBA? Depending on how you value the top player compared to the depth of the trio, there are several contenders including: Nets (Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Brook Lopez) Bulls (Luol Deng, Carlos Boozer, Joakim Noah) Nuggets (Danilo Gallinari, Kenneth Faried, JaVale McGee) Warriors (Andre Iguodala, David…

  14. Brandon Jennings says Pistons could become Lob City, pledges to change his game

    Aug 6, 2013, 3:10 PM EDT

    Brandon Jennings, Joe Dumars

    As he sat down for his new conference to introduce Brandon Jennings, Joe Dumars muttered, “Oh my god.” I don’t know what Dumars was referring to at that moment, but I cant think of a better way to describe the experiment he’s conducting with the Pistons. Jennings at point guard with Josh Smith, Greg Monroe…

  15. 76ers finally ready to enter free-agent marketplace

    Aug 2, 2013, 4:40 PM EDT

    Sam Hinkie

    The 76ers, for my money, had one of the best offseasons in the NBA. Jrue Holiday for Nerlens Noel and a 2014 first-round pick was a great trade, one that gave Philadelphia clear direction. In their rebuilding efforts, the 76ers made a few other small moves: drafting Michael Carter-Williams, trading for Royce White and Furkan…

  16. Marcus Camby sacrificed more than $600,000 in salary to leave Raptors

    Aug 2, 2013, 3:28 PM EDT

    Marcus Camby

    Update: Marcus Camby and the Raptors agreed to waive set-off rights in his buyout, according to Mark Deeks of ShamSports.com, which means Camby will make more than I previously calculated including a set-off. The post is now update to reflect accurate figures. Marcus Camby really didn’t want to be in Toronto. After being sent to…

Shivek, via Allon Sinai of The Jerusalem Post: “Mekel told me that he was put in a…

  18. Jazz so secretive, even father-son team employees won’t share information with each other

    Jul 26, 2013, 3:45 PM EDT

    NBA Draft Jazz Basketball

    I’m a sucker for off-the-beaten path stories, and Doug Robinson of the Deseret News sure has one. The Jazz are probably the most secretive organization in the NBA, so Robinson asked them about their tight lips. After initially getting rebuffed with a “no comment” – ha! – Robinson details the culture of secrecy in Utah…

  19. Karl Malone thought the Jazz threw him a birthday parade before he even played for them (They didn’t)

    Jul 26, 2013, 3:05 PM EDT

    NRA 500

    Karl Malone grew up in the country and played at the relatively at small Louisiana Tech before the Jazz drafted him with the 13th pick in 1985, so he was a little wet behind the ears at that point. Steve Luhm of The Salt Lake Tribune: His first visit to Utah coincided with the state’s…

Elton Brand replaces Ivan Johnson. Dennis Schroeder replaces Devin Harris. Mike Budenholzer replaces Larry Drew. Lou Williams is getting healthy. Free agents Jeff…

  21. Marcus Smart declares for 2014 NBA Draft

    Jul 23, 2013, 11:16 PM EDT

    Johnathan Loyd, Marcus Smart

    Marcus Smart – a potential No. 1 pick and top-10 lock – made the surprising decision to forgo the 2013 NBA Draft and return to Oklahoma State. Though he says he doesn’t regret it, Smart won’t be repeating that choice next year. Marcus J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports: Oklahoma State point guard Marcus Smart doesn’t…

  22. Andrew Bynum’s contract contains no performance-based incentives, just $6 million guaranteed

    Jul 23, 2013, 2:05 PM EDT

    Andrew Bynum

    Andrew Bynum’s contract with the Cavaliers will pay him between $6 million and $24.79 million the next two seasons. The two-year deal, the details of which were revealed by ShamSports.com, calls for base salaries of $12,250,000 and $12,540,000. However, only $6 million of the first season is guaranteed if Bynum is waived before 5 p.m.…

  23. Even team personnel believe referees are picking on them at NBA’s ordering

    rod thorn nba

    The NBA is out to get [insert your favorite team]. I know it. You know. The NBA certainly knows it. It’s the one out to get [insert your favorite team] in the first place. Sure, even Lakers, Knicks and Heat fans believe the NBA is out to get their team. But we know that’s ridiculous.…

  24. DeMarcus Cousins: ‘I do want to be a King’

    Jul 23, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    DeMarcus Cousins has broken his silence about the only NBA team he’s played for. After his new owner, general manager and coach came to his Alabama home to speak with him, Cousins has gone from refusing to talk about the Kings to praising them. Jason Jones of The Sacramento Bee: Kings center DeMarcus Cousins said…

  25. 76ers replace risk-taking front office with risk-taking front office

    Jul 23, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Sam Hinkie

    Confession: I liked the Andrew Bynum trade for the 76ers. They were a middling team capable of making the playoffs but without the proven ability to win a series unless the opponent’s top player was injured. Their roster had limited flexibility, and two starters, Elton Brand and Andre Iguodala, were aging. The 76ers didn’t necessarily…
