  1. Report: Sacramento Kings to sign Royce White

    Feb 27, 2014, 11:41 AM EDT

    Royce White

    It’s easy to forget now, but Royce White was the No. 16 pick in the 2012 NBA draft for a reason. He projected to have enormous upside thanks to his ball-handling and passing ability for his size, and he still had big-man skills to form the full package as a prospect. Before Giannis Antetokounmpo, there…

  2. Washington Wizards reportedly tried hard to trade for Jameer Nelson

    Feb 27, 2014, 10:12 AM EDT

    Jameer Nelson, Jonas Valanciunas

    It was no secret the Washington Wizards needed point guard help behind John Wall. It’s also no secret the rebuilding Orlando Magic are no longer a great fit for 32-year-old Jameer Nelson. The two teams would have made sense as trade partners before last week’s deadline. In fact, the Wizards reportedly really wanted to be…

  3. Little kid shows up Dwight Howard by dashing between his legs for layup

    Feb 27, 2014, 10:00 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Is anyone in the NBA having more fun than Dwight Howard? He’s impersonating Kevin McHale, Instagramming a photo of himself dunking on Kobe Bryant, chanting ‘Howard Sucks’ to mock Lakers fans and giving free-agent advice as if he knows what he’s talking about. On the court, he’s playing better and playing for a better team…

  4. Bucks buy out Caron Butler

    Feb 27, 2014, 9:21 AM EDT

    Caron Butler, Nate Wolters, Markieff Morris

    All along, Caron Butler was expected to be waived by the Bucks and signed by the Heat. Step one is now complete, and step two remains quite possible, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports: Caron Butler has reached a contract buyout agreement with the Milwaukee Bucks, league source tells Yahoo Sports.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA)…

  5. Extra Pass: Cleveland Cavaliers built playoff-caliber team, but that won’t mean enough

    Feb 27, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Luol Deng, Kevin Durant

    The Cleveland Cavaliers are a playoff-caliber team that is extremely unlikely to make the playoffs. With a 114-104 win Wednesday, the Cavaliers extended Oklahoma City Thunder’s losing streak to a season-high three games. Unlike the previous two teams to defeat the Thunder, the Miami Heat and Los Angeles Clippers, Cleveland is fancied by nobody as a…

  6. Extra Pass: Minnesota Timberwolves and defining clutch

    Feb 26, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Kevin Love, Channing Frye

    The Minnesota Timberwolves just can’t win close games. Trailing the Phoenix Suns by eight points in the fourth quarter Tuesday night, Minnesota exploded for a  24-6 run in a 110-101 win. Yet, the Timberwolves remain 1-12 in games decided by four or fewer points – by far the worst mark in the NBA. If only they…

  7. Wizards reportedly to sign Drew Gooden

    Feb 25, 2014, 12:58 PM EDT

    Paul George, Drew Gooden

    Since acquiring Nene two years ago, the Washington Wizards have gone 60-61 when he plays and 8-34 when he doesn’t. In their scheme, he’s a steadying force on both ends of the floor, practically essential to their success. Needless to say, with Nene out four to six weeks, the Wizards will almost assuredly use their…

  8. Extra Pass: Jason Collins speaks loudly for progress

    Feb 24, 2014, 7:57 AM EDT

    Jason Collins

    When Michael Jordan played basketball with an unmatched competiveness, he was the same person who (allegedly) cheated while playing an old lady in cards. When LeBron James makes a spectacularly unselfish pass on one possession and then preens after dunking on the next, he’s the same person who held a me-first nationally televised “Decision” that…

  9. Did Josh Smith and Chauncey Billups get Maurice Cheeks fired?

    Feb 23, 2014, 5:05 PM EDT

    Chauncey Billups, Maurice Cheeks

    NBA writer/rumormonger Peter Vecsey – currently involved in a public dispute with Kevin Love and Flip Saunders – has a new report about the Pistons. Like everything from Vecsey, it might be true and might not. It’s difficult to discern. But he’s prominent enough – he won the Basketball Hall of Fame’s media award in…

  10. Kobe Bryant ‘not cool’ with Lakers trading Steve Blake

    Feb 20, 2014, 6:23 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers' Bryant and Blake celebrate beating Denver Nuggets at their NBA Western Conference playoff in Los Angeles

    If the Lakers were going to make a run to the playoffs once Kobe Bryant returns from injury, Steve Blake would have played a key role. A quality outside shooter who competes defensively, Blake added to that roster. Of course, the Lakers were never going to make the playoffs this season. That’s why they traded…

  11. Spurs trade Nando De Colo to Raptors for Austin Daye

    Feb 20, 2014, 3:38 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat

    Nando De Colo fell out of the Spurs rotation, and Austin Daye was even further outside the Raptors’. Maybe a change of scenery will do both good. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports: San Antonio has traded Nando De Colo to the Toronto Raptors for Austin Daye, league source tells Yahoo Sports.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) February…

  12. Clippers trade Antawn Jamison to Hawks, Byron Mullens to 76ers

    Feb 20, 2014, 3:13 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Los Angeles Clippers

    Antawn Jamison hasn’t filled the stretch-four role the Clippers hoped he would this season. He’s played in only one of the Clippers last 17 games (a 45-point win over the 76ers). Though Jamison has just a minimum contract, that’s still more money than the Clippers need to spend on someone with no upside and no…

  13. Timberwolves reportedly turn eye toward Jarrett Jack

    Feb 20, 2014, 1:58 PM EDT

    Jarrett Jack, Jameer Nelson

    The Minnesota Timberwolves wanted Andre Miller, but he’s headed to Washington. The Timberwolves still need a better backup point guard to make a playoff push – they’re outscored by 4.7 points per 100 possessions when Ricky Rubio sits (+5.8 when he plays) – so they’ve turned their attention elsewhere. Hearing that the Timberwolves, falling short…

  14. Andre Miller traded to Wizards, who surrender Jan Veseley (to Nuggets) and Eric Maynor (to 76ers)

    Feb 20, 2014, 1:06 PM EDT

    Andre Miller, C.J. Watson

    For any teams passively waiting an Andre Miller buyout, tough luck. The Wizards swiped in to grab him before he could hit free agency. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports: In 3-team deal, Washington will send Eric Maynor and two 2nd-round picks to the Sixers to complete Andre Miller trade, source tells Yahoo.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA)…

  15. Report: Pistons shopping Josh Smith, want more than expiring contract

    Feb 20, 2014, 12:30 PM EDT

    Josh Smith, Brandan Wright

    Two years ago, the Pistons traded Ben Gordon and a first-round pick for Corey Maggette. The players were basically irrelevant, but their contracts were key. Because Maggette’s expired a year sooner, the Pistons got cap space last summer rather than in the upcoming summer. They, of course, used it to sign Josh Smith to a…

  16. NBA executives expect Nuggets to buy out Andre Miller if they don’t trade him

    Feb 20, 2014, 12:13 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Denver Nuggets

    Andre Miller hasn’t returned to the Nuggets since his falling out with Brian Shaw, and it’s pretty clear Denver wants to trade the point guard. But that won’t be easy. Miller turns 38 next month, and he’s owed $1,647,059 the rest of this season and $2 million next season (if waived. If you want to…

  17. Trading for a star mid-season to make an immediate impact? Don’t count on it

    Feb 20, 2014, 9:15 AM EDT

    Deron Williams, Carmelo Anthony

    The Luol Deng trade gave us something we hadn’t seen in three years – a star dealt mid-season. The trade might even give us something we haven’t seen in even longer – a star dealt mid-season actually improving his new team. Teams make mid-season trades for several reasons, but we’re going to examine one archetype…

  18. Bobcats reportedly trying to convince Bucks to trade Gary Neal for Ramon Sessions

    Feb 20, 2014, 9:00 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Boston Celtics

    The Bucks seem motivated to trade Gary Neal, and he’s a decent role player. There should be a market for him among playoff hopefuls But this is not what I expected: Hearing Bobcats continue to press for Bucks G Gary Neal and trying before deadline in 7+ hours to sell MILW on Ramon Sessions-for-Neal deal—…

  19. Chauncey Billups reportedly undergoing knee surgery

    Feb 19, 2014, 6:51 PM EDT

    Chauncey Billups

    What a horrific signing by the Pistons last summer. He’s way overpaid. The Pistons, already a bad team, are worse on both ends of the court when plays. No, not Josh Smith (who’s actually helped the wayward Pistons offensively and defensively). I’m talking about Chauncey Billups. When you give Smith a $54 million contract, your…

  20. Report: Luol Deng won’t sign extension with any team, limiting Cavaliers chances of trading him

    Feb 19, 2014, 6:18 PM EDT

    Jimmy Butler, Luol Deng

    The Cavaliers were so desperate to make the playoffs this season, they traded for Luol Deng without any guarantee he’d stay with Cleveland this summer. Deng’s production has fallen off, though the Cavaliers were so deficient at small forward, he’s actually helped them (8-10 with him, 13-23 without him). Still, Cleveland is three games out…

  21. Which NBA teams have the easiest and hardest remaining schedules?

    Feb 18, 2014, 3:02 PM EDT

    J.R. Smith, Kendall Marshall

    There are other complicating factors (days rest, injuries, etc.), but here’s a chart sorting NBA teams by the two most important elements of a schedule – opponent quality and location – for the rest of the season: (Click to see an interactive version where you can display by conference) Top right: Good opponents, more road…

  22. Report: Timberwolves trying to trade for Andre Miller, want to involve J.J. Barea

    Feb 18, 2014, 1:01 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Denver Nuggets

    If Andre Miller isn’t returning to the Nuggets, they might as well trade him. Miller, sent away from the team after feuding with Denver coach Brian Shaw, definitely wants a trade and a chance to play somewhere. The Nuggets should resist any inclination to be petty, and they should accommodate him. There are a number…

  23. Toronto Raptors reportedly covet Rajon Rondo

    Feb 18, 2014, 11:28 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Boston Celtics

    The Toronto Raptors have reportedly deemed the value of a playoff push trumps the risk of Kyle Lowry’s pending free agency. That’s what makes a Lowry-to-the-Knicks trade so unlikely. Not only do the Knicks have to offer fair value, they must offer so much return, it pushes Toronto off its current course. But what if…

  24. Jason Kidd reportedly engaged Deron Williams in ‘spirited exchange’ of basketball skills

    Feb 18, 2014, 10:15 AM EDT

    Jason Kidd, Deron Williams

    At this very moment, is Jason Kidd a better basketball player or basketball coach? I’ll let you write your own punch line. The first-year Nets coach, who has both improved as the season progressed and stumbled into a small-ball lineup that works for his team, hasn’t stopped playing. Not completely, at least. Stefan Bondy of…

  25. Report: Knicks still pursuing Kyle Lowry trade

    Feb 18, 2014, 9:30 AM EDT

    Kyle Lowry

    The will they?-won’t they?-will they?-won’t they? saga of trade negotiations between the Knicks and Raptors involving Kyle Lowry is reportedly back to the “will they?” stage. Ian Begley of ESPN: With the NBA trade deadline three days away, the Knicks continue to try to engage the Raptors in an attempt to acquire point guard Kyle…
