  1. Is Baron Davis bound for the Knicks when he recovers?

    Dec 16, 2011, 6:41 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Cleveland Cavaliers

    The Cleveland Cavaliers used their amnesty clause on Baron Davis to set the point guard free after a diagnosis of a bulging disk in his back. So who would want an injured point guard with a reputation for starting the season out of shape and not having a great work ethic? The Knicks. Here is…

  2. Can the Dallas Mavericks repeat as NBA champions?

    Dec 16, 2011, 5:16 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    After a trying, decade-long run that consistently placed them along the title’s periphery, the Dallas Mavericks finally claimed their first ever NBA championship last June. The fact that Dirk and the Mavs are the reigning champs still seems like a hazy dream — a vision almost too similar to a storybook to be real, and an…

  3. Video: Kobe Bryant talks Chris Paul to the Clippers

    Dec 16, 2011, 5:15 PM EST

    Kobe Bryant

    Kobe Bryant actually is pretty spot on here — the lockout really was about the owners fighting amongst themselves as much as it was about anything else. And when those owners saw the big market, powerhouse Lakers about to land Chris Paul they flipped out — that is what killed the first three-team deal where…

  4. Billups says he’s a Clipper, “It could have been much worse”

    Dec 16, 2011, 4:50 PM EST

    billups-knicks

    Chauncey Billups is in. He threatened retirement if someone he didn’t like picked him up on waivers after the Knicks used the amnesty rule on him (to free up room for Tyson Chandler). The Clippers took a chance and submitted a bid on him. At his introductory press conference, Billups said he was in and…

  5. Eduardo Najera out 6-8 weeks after knee surgery

    Dec 16, 2011, 2:52 PM EST

    Najera_Eduardo

    Because the Bobcats needed something else to go wrong… Eduardo Najera will be out for six to eight weeks recovering from surgery to repair a cartilage tear in his knee, tweets Steve Reed with the Associated Press. The Bobcats are already without Reggie Williams for a while due to knee surgery and Bismack Biyombo can’t…

  6. Pat Riley, Miami Heat extend Erik Spoelstra’s contract

    Dec 16, 2011, 2:33 PM EST

    Miami Heat v New Orleans Hornets

    It was one of the cloud of questions hanging over the Miami Heat last year: Does Pat Riley really trust Erik Spoelstra to coach the team, or does he have someone else in mind? (Maybe someone in a sharp suit with slicked-back hair.) You can check that off the list. Pat Riley said the Heat…

  7. Metta World Peace is at peace with coming off Lakers bench

    Dec 16, 2011, 2:11 PM EST

    Kobe Bryant, Metta World Peace, Ron Artest

    The idea of starting Matt Barnes and bringing the disruptive play of Metta World Peace off the bench makes some sense, you can see why Lakers coach Mike Brown wants to try it. The question was always, how would World Peace react? (Yes, I get how weirdly that sentence reads, but I refuse to just…

  8. New York will be better, but fans will be thinking about what’s next

    Dec 16, 2011, 1:30 PM EST

    Amare Stoudemire, Tyson Chandler, Carmelo Anthony

    The New York Knicks are going to win a playoff game this year. For the first time since 2001. Having Carmelo Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire together for a full season will boost the offense, having Tyson Chandler along the back line will turn them from terrible to average on defense (or maybe a little better,…

  9. Chris Paul already talking championship with Clippers

    Dec 16, 2011, 12:43 PM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers Introduce Chris Paul

    Chris Paul is not backing down from the challenge. Clippers nation is dreaming of having their own banner hanging up at Staples Center, something that doesn’t look like the JV next to what the other team in the building has enshrined. The Clippers are not just dreaming of respectability — that came with Blake Griffin…

  10. Stephen Jackson missing camp… is it contract issues?

    Dec 16, 2011, 12:00 PM EST

    Charlotte Bobcats v Orlando Magic

    Well, that didn’t take long. Stephen Jackson has missed a few practices with the Milwaukee — he is expected to be a focal point of the Bucks’ offense — due to what is officially being called back spasms. But there is already speculation growing around the team that the real issue is Jackson wants a…

  11. Friday morning one liners (so long Brandon Roy)

    Dec 16, 2011, 11:09 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Portland Trail Blazers - Game Four

    Our morning look around the NBA with stories worth reading and notes that are not their own post here at PBT. If you read one thing today, make it the BlazersEdge look back at the career of Brandon Roy. This is spectacular stuff from Ben Golliver. In case you missed it, PBT previewed all 30 NBA…

  12. Looks like Bobcats rookie Bismack Biyombo stays in Spain

    Dec 16, 2011, 10:53 AM EST

    Bismack Biyombo and Kemba Walker Introductory Press Conference

    For months now, we kept hearing Bismack Biyombo and everyone around the Charlotte draftee say that he could get out of his contract with his Spanish team and would be a Bobcat this year. But Fuenlabrada, the Spanish club in question, wants the full buyout in Biyombo’s contract — and the Spanish courts agreed with…

  13. Bobcats Reggie Williams out 6-8 weeks after knee surgery

    Dec 16, 2011, 9:57 AM EST

    WILLIAMS_REGGIE

    I like the Reggie Williams signing in Charlotte — right now that offense is going to rely too much on Corey Maggette and Williams is a guy who could be the spark off the bench, the sixth man who comes in with the green light and changes the flow of the game. But 24-hours after…

  14. Kings’ Chuck Hayes held out of practice after heart test

    Dec 16, 2011, 9:38 AM EST

    Chuck Hayes

    Chuck Hayes was a big free agent signing for the Sacramento Kings — they needed someone to actually play defense and bring some consistency to the frontcourt and Hayes will do all that. Or rather, he will once he gets back on the court. He was pulled off it Thursday because a stress echocardiogram revealed…

  15. Is Los Angeles a Clippers town now? No.

    Dec 16, 2011, 9:00 AM EST

    Blake_Griffin_grabs_his_jersey_with_Kobe_Bryant_by_his_side

    Last year, the Clippers were the hot new girl at the party in Los Angeles. You couldn’t take your eyes off her but there was nothing serious going on, it was all flirting and fun. Now, things are getting serious. The Chris Paul trade has the Clippers feeling like we all thought about the Oklahoma…

  16. Video: DeMarcus Cousins is not a morning person

    Dec 16, 2011, 8:26 AM EST

    DeMarcus Cousins

    Players are no fans of media day, and no fans of early mornings. So combine the two and you get DeMarcus Cousins doing interviews in shades. He talks about what he learned in his rookie year and what the Kings expect of themselves going forward. Worth checking out. It’s the best interview you’re going to…

  17. Dwight Howard says he has not withdrawn trade request

    Dec 16, 2011, 1:34 AM EST

    Dwight Howard

    The Orlando Magic may not be shopping Dwight Howard around, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t want to be shopped. Howard said Thursday his trade request is still on the table, the day after Magic GM Otis Smith said that Howard was off the trading block for now. After that, Howard worked hard to dodge…

    As if you haven’t noticed, NBA previews for all 30 NBA teams popped up at ProBasketballTalk faster than a Scott Baio rumor. But more accurate. What you see below is one stop shopping for your NBA previews — we are all about reader convenience here at PBT . All 30 teams are here and we…

  19. Maloofs say that they will be flexible with March 1 arena deadline

    Dec 15, 2011, 10:20 PM EST

    KevinJohnson and Gavin Maloof laugh

    We expect the Sacramento Kings arena news to pick up now that we’re about three months away from the March 1 deadline for the city to have funding in place. That deadline has put Kevin Johnson and his Think Big Sacramento effort on a tight, tight schedule, but so far they appear to be on…

  20. NBA Season Preview: Houston Rockets

    Dec 15, 2011, 10:02 PM EST

    Luis Scola, Kyle Lowry, Kevin Martin, Billy Baptist

    Last season: 43-39, which is not bad but in the deep West sends you to the lottery. Head Coach: Kevin McHale, last seen on the bench in Minnesota where he was forced, in a fit of poetic justice, to coach the team he had built as GM. A team that wasn’t very good. He replaces…
