  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. Bulls to sign Jarvis Varnado to 10-day contract

    Feb 18, 2014, 8:45 AM EDT

    Jarvis Varnado

    At minimum, this won’t be a completely silent week of player acquisitions before the trade deadline. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports: Bulls will sign D-League forward Jarvis Varnado to a 10-day contract, league sources tell Yahoo Sports. He worked out in Chicago on Monday. — Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) February 18, 2014 Announcement: Pro Basketball Talk’s…

  14. Philadelphia 76ers sign high schooler with Down syndrome to two-day contract

    Feb 17, 2014, 11:16 PM EDT

    Brett Brown, Spencer Hawes, Evan Turner, Michael Carter-Williams, Thaddeus Young

    The Philadelphia 76ers have lost an NBA-high eight straight games, falling to 15-39 and 29th in league. Their 3-point shooting, 31.4 percent, also ranks 29th. They need help. Enter Kevin Grow. Grow, a high school senior with Down syndrome, signed a ceremonial two-day contract with Philadelphia on Monday. (Take that, Adam Silver.) Bensalem High's Kevin…

  15. Trail Blazers commentators really mad about Scott Brooks benching LaMarcus Aldridge and Damian Lillard

    Feb 17, 2014, 11:00 AM EDT

    Damian Lillard, Beno Udrih, LaMarcus Aldridge, Kenyon Martin

    In the 2012 All-Star Game, LaMarcus Aldridge played fewer than 10 minutes, and he clearly wasn’t pleased with such a reduced role. Ben Golliver of Blazer’s Edge: After the game, Aldridge addressed a small group of reporters in the Mixed Zone media area, saying that he was as surprised about his playing time as everyone…

  16. Andre Miller possibly returning to Nuggets? Reports conflict

    Feb 16, 2014, 8:00 PM EDT

    Nate Robinson, Andre Miller, Brian Shaw

    The Nuggets need a point guard. Ty Lawson has been out with a broke rib. Nate Robinson had season-ending surgery. And Andre Miller was sent home. Trying to plug along without those three, the Nuggets have, predictably, fared poorly. Their season net rating, according to nbawowy, is –1.5. Without any of those three point guards,…

  17. Larry Sanders out at least six weeks following surgery

    Feb 16, 2014, 6:30 PM EDT

    Larry Sanders, Larry Drew

    The rest of the Milwaukee Bucks’ season probably doesn’t matter. They’re 9-43 and have a five-game cushion for the NBA’s worst record. It would be a pretty big upset if they don’t land the best odds in the lottery. What matters now is developing their core. The three players most essential to Milwaukee’s future –…

  18. Kevin Durant extremely tired of LeBron James comparisons

    Feb 16, 2014, 5:00 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant, LeBron James

    Kevin Durant and LeBron James have pulled away from the field, setting up what could be a thrilling head-to-head finish down the stretch for Most Valuable Player. Durant is having the better season so far. There’s little question about that. With Russell Westbrook out, Durant has put the Thunder on his back, raising his game…

  19. Spencer Hawes has Barack Obama toilet paper that Evan Turner won’t use

    Feb 14, 2014, 3:40 PM EDT

    Spencer Hawes, Evan Turner, Josh Smith

    At one point, the official Barack Obama store was selling Obama koozies, Obama aprons, Obama handbags, Obama baby bibs, Obama golf balls, Obama tube socks, Obama dog shirts, Obama spatulas and Obama divot tools. However, I don’t think the site ever had Obama toilet paper. But thanks to teammate Evan Turner, we know 76ers center…

  20. Report: Cavaliers considering agent Mark Bartelstein for front-office role

    Feb 14, 2014, 2:05 PM EDT

    David Griffin

    The NBA is a copycat league, which is good new for agents who want to become team executives. Two of the league’s most successful teams – both on the court and with salary-cap outlook – employ former agents in their front office. Lon Babby is the Suns’ President of Basketball Operations, and Bob Myers is…

  21. Oklahoma City Thunder reportedly want to trade for a shooter

    Feb 14, 2014, 12:59 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant, Thabo Sefolosha

    The Thunder have an above-average 3-point percentage and a top-end defense. But in the hunt for a title, Oklahoma City is leaving nothing to chance. Armed with trade exceptions, OKC has been active in search for a shooter to fortify them for title run, league sources tell Yahoo. — Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) February 13, 2014…

  22. Dwight Howard Instagrams photo of himself dunking on Kobe Bryant

    Feb 14, 2014, 11:55 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard

    If someone ever photographed me dunking on someone – an impossibility, considering my hops have most commonly been compared to Bill Laimbeer’s, and I’m not 6-foot-11 – I’d be tempted to send that picture to the dunk victim every single day. If the dunked-on were my friend, I probably would. If he weren’t a friend,…

  23. James Harden to start All-Star Game for Kobe Bryant

    Feb 14, 2014, 9:33 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Golden State Warriors

    Kobe Bryant was already replaced on the Western Conference All-Star roster with Anthony Davis, but that was only half the process. Kobe must also be replaced in the starting lineup. Looks like that’s settled, too. Marc Spears of Yahoo Sports: Injured Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant will be replaced as a Western Conference All-Star…

  24. Mark Cuban wants NBA to consider allowing HGH use

    Feb 13, 2014, 8:00 PM EDT

    Mark Cuban,  Brian Forte

    Imagine a world where NBA players were banned from using exercise equipment. The league didn’t want players getting too physically dominant and subjecting themselves to the types of muscle pulls that would come with a physique arms race. Players were still allowed to train, but using any outside equipment crossed the line. Of course, some…

  25. Blake Griffin leaves door open for Slam Dunk Contest return

    Feb 13, 2014, 7:15 PM EDT

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    Ten of the 13 Slam Dunk Contest champions since Vince Carter have defended their title the following year. One exception was Nate Robinson, who bowed out after winning back-to-back Dunk Contests for for his second and third titles in the event. Another was Fred Jones, who was injured. The third? Blake Griffin. Griffin won the…
