    daryl-morey-rockets

    Rockets GM Daryl Morey has been on a quest for an elite player for more than a year — Pau Gasol (part of the Chris Paul trade David Stern blew up), Dwight Howard, Carmelo Anthony — and he thinks he finally has one in James Harden. Morey was on Comcast SportsNet Houston to talk about…

  2. Michael Beasley adjusting to the green light in Phoenix

    Michael Beasley, Andre Miller

    Michael Beasley showed a flash of brilliance during the Suns preseason finale on Friday, giving the team a glimpse of the potential that lies within the talented but historically troubled individual. Beasley put up 29 points on 13-of-21 shooting and grabbed 10 rebounds, and seemed to do so relatively effortlessly in his 34 minutes of…

  3. Harden confirms he will sign extension with Rockets

    Oct 28, 2012, 2:47 PM EDT

    Olympics - Opening Day

    This is not a surprise, there is no way Daryl Morey made the blockbuster trade for James Harden without checking through back channels that he would sign a contract extension there. He will, Harden said on Sunday. A video of Harden’s meeting with the media is posted on the Rockets official Web site. “Yes, yes,”…

  4. Houston, Daryl Morey got a star in Harden. It’s a start.

    Oklahoma City Thunder James Harden durin

    For the past year or more, Daryl Morey has been on a quest to get the Rockets an elite player to build around. He went hard after Dwight Howard even with Howard’s people saying he wouldn’t re-sign there. He knows you need an elite player to win in this league. He’s now got James Harden.…

    Dwyade Wade

    First things first — do not ever get your hair cut on a basketball court. Ever. Even if you are Dwyane Wade. Even if they put a tarp down. Those hairs are going to get on the court and be a bear to clean up. While Wade is getting his hair cut he talks musical…

  6. Oklahoma City’s big mistake was Perkins trade, extension

    Oct 28, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Kendrick Perkins, James Harden

    We all have at least a little bit of stubbornness in us. Not asking for directions? A common mistake rooted in pride. Going down a random, unmarked dirt road for five miles after not asking for directions? A little more foolish. Ending up out of gas in the middle of a field hoping the hills…

  7. NBA players react on twitter to James Harden trade

    U.S. Olympic basketball player Harden watches during a training session ahead of the London 2012 Olympic Games at the M.E.N Arena in Manchester

    When James Harden was traded to the Houston Rockets Saturday night, just like you NBA players had their reactions. Just like you they took to twitter. Here are some of their reactions, starting with Kevin Durant. Who is a company man and isn’t going to go and rip management, but didn’t really praise the move.…

  8. Thunder weaken title chances to save almighty dollar

    Oct 28, 2012, 1:45 AM EDT

    James Harden

    Mark Cuban once said that there are two kinds of NBA owners: Those that want to win and those that want to make money. We know where the Thunder owners fall. Oklahoma City traded their Sixth Man of the Year and best playmaker James Harden — the guy with the sweet beard who often had…

  9. Thunder trade James Harden to the Rockets

    Oct 27, 2012, 11:59 PM EDT

    Mavericks Thunder Basketball

    Well, this was unexpected. After contract talks broke down, with the Thunder failing to come through with a max contract extension offer for last season’s Sixth Man of the Year in James Harden, Oklahoma City’s GM Sam Presti decided to pull the plug altogether, and has traded Harden to the Houston Rockets. Adrian Wojnarowski of…

    Indiana Pacers v Orlando Magic - Game Three

    There’s not a lot of drama in NBA training camps, who is toing to make the team because contracts are almost all guaranteed. The ones that are not are a couple guys at the very end of the bench, guys who could bounce down to the D-League for much of the season. Which is why…

  11. Lakers waive Andrew Goudelock

    Oct 27, 2012, 8:00 PM EDT

    Andrew Goudelock

    The Lakers waived Andrew Goudelock on Saturday, bringing the team’s roster down to the league-maximum of 15 players. Goudelock wasn’t expected to make the team with the offseason addition of starting point guard Steve Nash, and with Steve Blake and Chris Duhon firmly in place with guaranteed contracts, it wouldn’t have made sense from a…

  12. Injuries may force Knicks to turn to Rasheed Wallace

    rasheed wallace knicks

    When news broke that Amar’e Stoudemire might be out longer than expected with a left knee injury, Rasheed Wallace being drafted into action before he appears ready for it certainly was a possibility. With Stoudemire and Marcus Camby definitely out, and Tyson Chandler possibly out for opening night, the Knicks simply don’t have very many…

  13. Report: Raptors unlikely to offer contract extension to DeMar DeRozan

    Oct 27, 2012, 5:15 PM EDT

    Raptors forward DeMar DeRozan goes to the basket against Bucks forward Tobias Harris during their NBA basketball pre-season game in Toronto

    DeMar DeRozan is essentially in the same boat as James Harden. Not the one that will sail him into the max contract territory that Harden is pursuing with the Thunder of course, but DeRozan similarly has until Oct. 31 to work out a contract extension with his team, or else become a restricted free agent…

  14. Nike unveils Kevin Durant’s latest signature shoe, the KD V

    12-390_Nike_KDV_Upper_Detail-02_original

    Kevin Durant‘s KD IV was one of the most popular signature shoes in recent memory. The seemingly endless and limited edition colorways kept fans (and resellers) coming back again and again, and were worn by most for style rather than on-court performance. Earlier this week, Nike officially unveiled this year’s edition, the KD V. And…

  15. Report: James Harden turned down $52M extension offer from Thunder

    Oct 27, 2012, 3:06 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder James Harden durin

    The most high-profile player eligible for a contract extension before Oct. 31 is the Thunder’s James Harden. He’s a playmaker and scorer who’s been vital to the team’s success, and took home the league’s Sixth Man of the Year award just last season. But he’s looking for a max contract, and the Thunder are looking…

  16. Four days left and Harden, Thunder still talking extension

    Oct 27, 2012, 3:00 PM EDT

    James Harden

    Halloween is the deadline for rookies from the draft class of 2009 to sign extensions. And there are some real questions out there. Would you offer an extension to Stephen Curry? What about Jrue Holiday? Or Ty Lawson? The Bulls are expected to reach a deal with Taj Gibson but it hasn’t happened yet. Tyreke…

  17. Pacers’ Gerald Green can get entire head above rim. Wow.

    Oct 27, 2012, 1:29 PM EDT

    gerald-green-head-over-rim

    Gerald Green has mad hops. Don’t believe me, check out that photo. That has always been the case — coming out of high school and into the NBA his ability to get up has never been questioned. His all-around game, yes. But not his hops. It was that athleticism that got him taken in the…

  18. Lamar Odom says he doesn’t think he’ll be ready for opener

    Oct 27, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    Lamar Odom

    Lamar Odom was expected to be a steal for the Clippers — they needed frontcourt depth behind Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan and if the former Sixth Man of the Year could return to form them could provide that and more. Well, he can when he’s on the court. Which may well not be season…

  19. Video: Friday night’s best dunks courtesy LeBron, Green

    Miami Heat's LeBron James dunks against New Orleans Hornets' Greivis Vasquez and Ryan Anderson during their NBA basketball game in Miami, Florida

    Friday night was the last night of preseason basketball. And we say goodbye without much sadness because it means no more games with key players sitting out for “general soreness” or coaches experimenting with lineups or guys destined for the D-League racking up 30 minutes a game. We’re ready for games that matter. But we…

  20. LeBron: “I want to be the best of all-time. It’s that simple.”

    Oct 27, 2012, 8:58 AM EDT

    LeBron James

    He has said this before. Seemingly every year. When he said it as he entered the NBA and in first few years in the league it came off as the hubris of an immature player and person. Because it was. LeBron James is not an immature player anymore. The shiny championship ring he picks up…
