    Denver is not Cleveland. They got something back for their superstar. But Denver was not a winner either in having to trade away Carmelo Anthony, and their GM Masai Ujiri said as much, as the fantastic Chris Tomasson reported at Fanhouse. “We feel we got killed in the trade because we lost a couple of…

  2. Knicks may not think it’s a rivalry, but Nets do and they won round one

    Feb 23, 2011, 12:29 PM EST

    Mikhail Prokhorov Introductory Press Conference

    Mention a Knicks/Nets rivalry to a Knicks fan and they laugh a dismissive little laugh. There is no rivalry — the Knicks play in Manhattan and the Nets are still in Newark, the swamps of Jersey. Even when they come to Brooklyn, that’s not on the island. The  Knicks dismiss the rivalry out of hand.…

  3. Utah’s Deron Williams traded to Nets in surprising deal

    Feb 23, 2011, 11:12 AM EST

    Utah Jazz v Phoenix Suns

    In a move that has flown under the radar like a stealth bomber about to unload its payload on an unsuspecting NBA, the New Jersey Nets have acquired Deron Williams from the Utah Jazz. This is a deal that would send D-Will — one of the game’s best point guards — to the Nets. Derrick…

  4. PBT Wednesday morning one liners (with some trade rumors)

    Feb 23, 2011, 10:47 AM EST

    Cavaliers Lakers Basketball

    If you have picks to trade, the Cleveland Cavaliers roster is open to you. Yes, Boston is looking for another player. Doc says so. The Trail Blazers are checking out the market for Andre Miller and Marcus Camby. Camby has no desire to be traded. The Hawks really want Washington’s Kirk Hinrich to be their…

  5. Report: Devin Harris likely headed to Dallas

    Feb 23, 2011, 10:09 AM EST

    New Jersey Nets v Boston Celtics

    Devin Harris became enough of a star in Dallas that the Nets thought they were getting something of real value in the Jason Kidd deal a few years back. Now, looks like New Jersey has seen enough Harris and he is headed back tot Big D. Harris is going to get moved and Dallas is…

  6. Video: Amar’e Stoudemire talks Carmelo Anthony

    Feb 23, 2011, 9:42 AM EST

    Amare Stoudemire

    Everyone knew that Amar’e Stoudemire wanted Carmelo Anthony in New York with him. He had to play it cool with the media, but he wanted him. Now that Anthony will be a Knick — likely officially suiting up Wednesday night — Stoudemire is talking. And he is right — the two of them are going…

  7. What now for the Nuggets? Playoff push or fast trades?

    Feb 23, 2011, 9:33 AM EST

    Raymond Felton, Wilson Chandler, Danilo Gallinari, Timofey Mozgov

    Congratulations Denver. Sure, having your star player and face of the franchise force his way out of town doesn’t feel like something to be congratulated over, but there is the silver lining you keep hearing about — at least you’re not Cleveland. That’s got to make you feel better, right? You got something in return…

  8. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Melo? We don’t need no stinkin’ ‘Melo?

    Feb 23, 2011, 9:09 AM EST

    Grizzlies Nuggets Basketball

    What you missed while you were getting arrested fighting over Girl Scout cookies… The Lakers beatdown of the Hawks was our game of the night. Nuggets 120, Grizzlies 107: That, my friends, is what passion can do. The Melodrama had this team playing like the walking dead for a month. There was no passion —…

  9. Report: Miami Heat shopping Mike Miller

    Feb 23, 2011, 3:42 AM EST

    Charlotte Bobcats v Miami Heat

    The Miami Heat need a center. They could use a point guard, too, but center is the big need. They gaze into their playoff crystal ball and they see the Celtics and Lakers and their giant front lines. They realize what a matchup nightmare that would be for them. So the Heat are dangling swingman…

  10. Lakers remind fans why maybe they shouldn’t worry so much

    Feb 23, 2011, 3:15 AM EST

    Atlanta Hawks v Los Angeles Lakers

    Those looked like the Lakers everyone expects to see. The Lakers who showed up at Staples Center Tuesday night were up double-digits in the first quarter on a pretty good Hawks team. Those Lakers cruised to a 104-80 win. Those Lakers looked nothing like the ones that dropped three straight games at the end of…

  11. Rumored trade of Troy Murphy to Warriors soon not to be rumor

    Feb 23, 2011, 1:30 AM EST

    Nets_Murphy

    We told you about this a few days ago — the Nets were looking to move Troy Murphy and if it wasn’t going to be as part of the Carmelo Anthony deal then it likely would be to Golden State. Now it looks like that deal is going to go through, according to Adrian Wojnarowski…

  12. Kings trade Carl Landry to Hornets for Marcus Thornton

    Feb 23, 2011, 1:11 AM EST

    Carl Landry

    Feb. 23, 1:11 am: This is official, the two sides have agreed to terms and all that is left is for the league to give the trade it’s stamp of approval in the morning. Friend of the site Sam Amick of FanHouse confirms this. Feb. 22, 11:19 pm: Carl Landry was held out of the…

  13. Report: Carmelo Anthony to suit up for Knicks Wednesday

    Feb 22, 2011, 9:33 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Denver Nuggets

    Pity the Milwaukee Bucks. They get to come into Madison Square Garden on the night Carmelo Anthony first puts on a Knicks jersey and wants to impress his new hometown fans. The trade has become official, ‘Melo in in New York and is expected to play, according to a tweet from Frank Isola of the…

  14. Minor addition to ‘Melo trade: Wolves send Kosta Koufos to Denver

    Feb 22, 2011, 8:58 PM EST

    Koufos_Kosta

    It was a minor part of the Carmelo Anthony trade that was not mentioned yesterday, but we feel it should be put out there so you, dear reader, feel fully informed — center Kosta Koufos is headed to Denver. The Timberwolves are trading Koufos to clear out time for their existing front line players —…

    NBA games streaming on YouTube? Just a click away from a cat playing the piano? Could happen. Google — which owns YouTube — is in talks with the NBA and other major sports leagues, according to Bloomberg. YouTube aims to show more live sports in the second half of the year, said Gautam Anand, Google’s…

  16. Amid rumors of Devin Harris trade, Nets cancel practice

    Feb 22, 2011, 4:11 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v New Jersey Nets

    The Nets don’t have a game until Friday so they have a few practices to integrate… well, guess not. But while the ‘Melodrama has moved on there are plenty of trade rumors swirling around the Nets — particularly around point guard Devin Harris. He is going to Atlanta. Or Portland. Or Dallas. Or… It’s a…

  17. Tyreke Evans out at least three weeks after foot procedure

    Feb 22, 2011, 3:50 PM EST

    Sacramento Kings v Los Angeles Lakers

    You know that shock-wave thing your uncle had to break up his kidney stones a decade ago? That’s pretty much what Tyreke Evans had done to his left foot today. And that’s going to keep him out at least three more weeks, according to a tweet from Marc Spears at Yahoo. Evans has been battling…

  18. DeMar DeRozan is done with the prop dunk contest

    Feb 22, 2011, 3:23 PM EST

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    DeMar DeRozan came out and really rocked it last weekend. Not like Lenny Kravitz, we mean in a good way. He came out for the dunk contest Saturday and threw it down old school. Forget the cars and the second backboard and stuffed animals hanging from the rim. He came out and just dunked. He…

  19. The scent of an All-Star

    odomkhloe

    We bring you a brief break from the post ‘Melodrama drama…. To talk about scents. You all know about Unbreakable, the new scent by Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian. Heck, you’re probably wearing it right now. Admit it. We won’t think any less of you. What if other players were to start their own line?…

  20. Now what for the Nets? Relax, have a vodka shot, stop with quick fix.

    New Jersey Nets Owner Mikhail Prokhorov Meets with Jay Z

    It’s just not that easy. All the swagger of a Russian billionaire playboy and a hip-hop icon and mogul can not instantly transform an NBA franchise. It cannot get free agents to walk through the door, let alone knock it down. The Nets Mikhail Prokhorov and Jay-Z made a good pitch to LeBron James, but…

  21. With Anthony and Billups, does the Knicks offense really get better?

    Feb 22, 2011, 1:22 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    On a very basic level, the question seems almost absurd. Does the Carmelo Anthony trade make the Knicks offense better? The gut first reaction is “Of course it does. ‘Melo is a scorer going to a system where they just ask guys to get out and score. Match made in heaven.” Then you look at…

  22. PBT Tuesday morning one liners (non-‘Melo trade rumors edition)

    Feb 22, 2011, 12:39 PM EST

    Devin Harris, Zach Randolph, Tony Allen

    The Atlanta Hawks have interest in Devin Harris. They should. They should have interest in any point guard that doesn’t suck. Dallas and Portland also have interest interest in Harris. Cleveland is thinking trades and thinking long-term picture. Terrance Williams wants out of Houston. The Bulls worked out four D-League guys who could step in…

  23. Danilo Gallinari to the…. Clippers?

    Feb 22, 2011, 11:47 AM EST

    Image (1) Gallinari_celebrates-thumb-250x166-20310.jpg for post 6298

    Danilo Gallinari is a Denver Nugget. Right now. Right now, anyway. He came to the Rocky Mountains from the Knicks in the deal that sent Carmelo Anthony to where the bright lights will inspire him. But no source we spoke with expects the Nuggets to hang on to Gallinari. Maybe they should — he is…

  24. Carmelo Anthony has his legacy in his hands in New York

    Feb 22, 2011, 11:01 AM EST

    T-Mobile Rookie Challenge and Youth Jam

    Carmelo Anthony gets mentioned as one of the game’s elite scorers. As he should. Few players can average 25 points a season consistently. Few players in the league can fill it up — from anywhere on the court, creating their own shot — like Anthony. He doesn’t do it terribly efficiently (his shooting percentage is…

  25. Can the Knicks play any defense now?

    Feb 22, 2011, 10:08 AM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors

    The New York Knicks were not a good defensive team on Monday morning — they were 20th in the league giving up 106.3 points per 100 possessions (via Hoopdata). Because they like to run that means giving up an average of 106 points per game, second worst in the league. They were 21st in the…
