  1. Jamison struggles in first game as Cav, but let's keep our heads

    Feb 19, 2010, 10:10 PM EDT

    Tonight will likely be the first and last time for the rest of his career that Antawn Jamison wishes he were still a Wizard. Jamison came off the bench for 18 minutes and shot 0-12 from the floor, scoring only two points and being blocked five times in the Cavs’ 110-93 loss to the Charlotte…

  2. Baseline to Baseline, your game recaps

    Feb 19, 2010, 9:41 PM EDT

    What happened Friday while you were debating Tiger’s human touch: Mavericks 95 Magic 85: And things were going so well for the Magic, too. Dwight Howard was beastin’-flat-out-beastin’ with 29 points, six rebounds, and five blocks. Those weren’t easy stats, either, as Brendan Haywood fits into this team like a glove. But Howard had the…

  3. Desperate times call for desperate Nets

    Feb 19, 2010, 11:15 AM EDT

    The Nets are, well, you know. BAD. And in these tough economic times, for a fanbase that’s never been exactly astounding in attendance even in the best of times, the Nets have been forced to resort to… unorthodox methods for boosting attention for the team. First they’ve managed to get minority owner Jay-Z (or as…

  4. Mavs may take a crack at Ilgauskas if buyout is arranged

    Feb 18, 2010, 11:37 PM EDT

    Update 11:50 pm: The Mavericks are not alone, it turns out. The Atlanta Hawks would like to talk to Ilgauskas, too, if (when, really) Washington buys him out. His agent, Herb Rudoy, said the Hawks are a team Big Z would consider. He’ll probably end up back with the Cavs, but he can milk them…

  5. Tony Parker has no concept of his body's own limitations

    Feb 18, 2010, 5:19 PM EDT

    Tony Parker has battled plantar fasciitis this year, a condition which is, to be honest, painful as all get-out. It hasn’t affected his speed, nor his patented dribble-hesitation as much as it has his focus and his jump shot. Then again, you also have to factor in how much of his game has been impacted…

  6. Nets moving to Newark before Brooklyn

    Feb 18, 2010, 4:14 PM EDT

    The New Jersey Nets will become the Brooklyn (INSERT BRANDING HERE) in 2012. But until then, they need somewhere else to play, as the IZOD center is widely referred to as “a dump.” So they’re headed to Newark, to play at the Prudential Center. Some of the advantages of the move are as follows: Closer…

  7. Trade Deadline: Bobcats talking to Pacers for D.J. Augustine-T.J. Ford swap

    Feb 18, 2010, 2:36 PM EDT

    UPDATE 2:03PM: Chad Ford reporting the deal broke down, no go. Guess Augustine will have to continue the rest of the season with that startling vote of confidence. UPDATE 1:43PM: The deal is close but not yet done, and includes Nazr Mohammed and Gerald Henderson going to Indiana, and Brandon Rush going to Charlotte. The…

  8. REPORT: Knicks, Kings, Rockets complete three-way trade, McGrady to New York

    Feb 18, 2010, 1:25 PM EDT

    UPDATE 4 2:06M: Marc Stein of ESPN is reporting that Hilton Armstrong will also go to Houston. Armstrong’s is an expiring contract. The Rockets now possess an army of capable big men with which to conquer the Earth. UPDATE 3 1:41PM: Chad Ford chimes in with the two picks that were sent to Houston from…

  9. Salmons still going to Bucks, but now it's for Warrick and Alexander

    Feb 18, 2010, 10:53 AM EDT

    We told you earlier that the Bucks and Bulls had worked out a trade to send John Salmons to Milwaukee for Francisco Elson and Kurt Thomas, then let you know the Bulls were in flux about whether it would be Thomas or Hakim Warrick. Now we’re here to tell you that the Bulls flip-flopped this…

  10. Jamison to get first start Friday for Cavs

    Feb 18, 2010, 10:43 AM EDT

    I’m sure TNT would have been thrilled to find Antawn Jamison’s first post-trade game with the Cavs came on their doubleheader with tonight’s game against Denver in Cleveland, but it looks like that won’t be the case. Cavs beat writer Brian Windhorst, or, the Legendary Brian Windhorst, is reporting that Jamison will likely be unavailable…

  11. Trade Deadline: Salmons for Kurt Thomas and Francisco Elson

    Feb 18, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    Update 2/18 10:17 am: Reports are now saying that there is some flux on whether the Bulls want Kurt Thomas or Hakim Warrick in combination with Elson. Warrick’s contract is for only $3 million expiring as opposed to Thomas’ $3.8 million expiring. Same basic structure, just a different role and a bit less money. 2/17…

  12. Baseline to Baseline, your game recaps

    Feb 18, 2010, 12:04 AM EDT

    Our game recaps from Wednesday, or what you missed during the Shaun Whiteout. Spurs 90 Pacers 87: If you’d have told me Tim Duncan had 26 rebounds and Tony Parker had 28 points beforehand, I would have told you the Spurs won this game by 20. But the Pacers kept their feet moving, created some…

  13. Trade Deadline: Warriors turn down trade, save Grizzlies from themselves

    Feb 17, 2010, 9:19 PM EDT

    Tim Kawakami of the Mercury News is reporting that the Warriors turned down a trade offer from the Memphis Grizzlies of O.J. Mayo and contract filler for Monta Ellis. Now, on the face of this, it appears to be a pretty natural rejection of a reasonable offer from Memphis. But OJAM is younger, has no…

  14. Trade Deadline: DEFCON Central Division

    Feb 17, 2010, 5:00 PM EDT

    A quick look at the league, division by division, at where all the teams in the NBA are as the trade deadline hits zero hour. DEFCON indicates how close they are to a major move, with 5 means standing pat and 1 means already have a deal in place. Here’s the Central Division. Cleveland Cavaliers:…

  15. Trade Deadline: Grizzlies willing to move Conley

    Feb 17, 2010, 4:38 PM EDT

    ESPN is reporting that Grizzlies have put point guard Mike Conley on the block, with an asking price of cap space and a good first round pick. To bring the kind of hard hitting analysis you’ve come to expect from Pro Basketball Talk into terms that anyone can understand, here are a few comparable exchanges…

  16. Trade Deadline: DEFCON Atlantic Division

    Feb 17, 2010, 3:18 PM EDT

    A quick look at the league, division by division, at where all the teams in the NBA are as the trade deadline hits zero hour. DEFCON indicates how close they are to a major move, with 5 means standing pat and 1 means already have a deal in place. Here’s the Atlantic Division. Boston Celtics:…

  17. Could Brandon Roy be done for the year?

    Feb 17, 2010, 1:02 AM EDT

    The Portland Trailblazers have given new meaning to snakebit. Murphy’s Law has actually been renamed The McMillan Corollary. They’ve lost more guys to injury than a squad in Modern Warfare. But Martell Webster is back, they just traded for Marcus Camby to help with their frontcourt decimation, and surely things are looking brighter, right? Welll……

  18. Report: Celtics talking to Knicks about trade for Nate Robinson

    Feb 16, 2010, 11:48 PM EDT

    The dunk champ may be getting himself new digs. The New York Daily News is reporting that the Celtics and Knicks have entered talks to trade Nate Robinson to the Celtics. Terms of the proposed deal were not reported. Robinson signed a one year deal in the offseason, which provides him the equivalent of a…

  19. Rockets completing deal to send Tracy McGrady to New York

    Feb 16, 2010, 10:50 PM EDT

    UPDATE: Sources from ESPN and others are indicating the Bulls are still in the McGrady talks, and are including a pick in their offer, which could change Houston’s mind on the Knicks’ offer, which doesn’t include a pick until 2012. The Knicks remain the favorite to land McGrady, “probably tomorrow.” Our long national …mild distraction…

  20. REPORT: Portland trades Blake and Outlaw for Camby

    Feb 16, 2010, 1:57 PM EDT

    Update 2/16 1:55 pm This trade is official, the Blazers were handing out the perfunctory press release to the media at shoot around today. Update 2/16 11:54 AM After an initial step-back in terms of the finalization of this deal, Yahoo’s Marc Spears is now reporting that the trade has been completed. The Blazers will…

  21. Could the Cavs be turning to Maggette as third option?

    Feb 16, 2010, 9:38 AM EDT

    It would be a stunning non-move if the Cavaliers failed to make any sort of trade at the deadline. They’ve been linked to just about everyone, with Antawn Jamison and Amar’e Stoudemire their top option depending on who you talk to. Zydrunas Ilgauskas’ massive expiring contract is their big chip, and they’re aggressively pursuing an…

  22. Harrington to Bulls back in the rumor fires as NBA trade deadline approaches

    Feb 14, 2010, 9:13 PM EDT

    The Tyrus Thomas to New York rumors were thought dead as time went on, but Ken Berger of CBSSports.com is reporting the deal is experiencing a ‘Thriller’ like revival, with the same pieces in place. Al Harrington provides a two-birds, one-stone combination for the Bulls. His scoring ability at the forward position may not be…

  23. Cavs' Amar'e talks highlight power plays

    Feb 14, 2010, 6:59 PM EDT

    Oh, what a tangled web we weave. As you can imagine, NBA All-Star Weekend isn’t about the festivities, or the quotes, or the MCs throwing free stuff to fans. No, it’s about talk. Business talk, strategy talk, and naturally, lots and lots of trade talk. And as ESPN’s rumor section lays out, some of that…

  24. Is Derrick Rose a possible All-Star scratch?

    Feb 11, 2010, 1:24 PM EDT

    2/11 1:23 pm Reports now that the MRI on Rose showed nothing significant. He is now on his way to Dallas for All-Star Weekend, and he will be re-evaluated on Saturday. 2/10 8:28 pm Derrick Rose took a nasty fall tonight in the Bulls’ first quarter against the Magic (before the rest of the team…

  25. Baseline to Baseline (last night's game recaps)

    Feb 11, 2010, 2:20 AM EDT

    I believe in yesterday. Which is why we’ve put together our thoughts on all the games of yesterday. All this without your troubles here to stay. Neat, huh? Quit smiling, Paul. You’re not as cute as you think you are. Toronto 104 Philadelphia 96: Hedo Turkoglu was supposed to give the Raptors star power, but…
