  1. Video: Darren Rovell, David Falk talk labor deal numbers

    Dec 4, 2011, 8:30 AM EST

    NBPA Meet To Discuss Current CBA Offer

    CNBC’s sports business expert Darren Rovell gives a great synopsis of the NBA’s labor deal and how it effects players and player movement. Then he brings in agent David Falk — and shockingly, agents don’t like this deal. Falk lays out his case for why pretty well, like most agents he wants a more pure…

  2. Report: Free agency lunacy tips off in earnest Monday

    Dec 3, 2011, 10:00 PM EST

    Denver Nuggets Behind the Scenes

    Yes, there have been back-channel communications. Yes, there are indications and sources and talks. But free agency hasn’t officially begun and won’t until Monday. But Monday, according to an ESPN report, that’s when free agents can begin being wooed by teams and executives. Cue the Brazilian steakhouse jokes! NBA team executives and coaches will be allowed to…

  3. Billups not happy he could be moved by whims of a superstar. Again.

    Dec 3, 2011, 8:30 PM EST

    NBPA Meet To Discuss Current CBA Offer

    Chauncey Billups is not chopped liver. He is a five-time NBA All-Star, an NBA Champion and finals MVP. He’s a rock in the locker room, someone highly respected by other players around the league. He’s a damn good point guard. And last year he was moved on the whims of a superstar, yanked out of…

  4. Rondo’s not really cool with this whole “we may trade you to a non-contender, but seriously we love you” thing

    Dec 3, 2011, 6:30 PM EST

    Rajon Rondo Chris Paul

    How would you like it if you found out, through the media, no less, that your employer was thinking of shipping you to a worse company in exchange for someone who everyone says is so much better than you despite his never having reached the pinacle of your profession and your longstanding success with your…

  5. Spurs are aggressively shopping for a small forward, Jefferson on the way out?

    Dec 3, 2011, 4:00 PM EST

    Richard Jefferson

    The Spurs will likely look a bit different this year than they did last season. Tim Duncan‘s a year older. Manu Ginobili is a year older. DeJuan Blair‘s knees are a year older. They traded George Hill for Kawhi Leonard. Tiago Splitter will get more minutes. And from the looks of it, they’ll have another…

  6. One more time, report says Marc Gasol’s not leaving Memphis. Seriously. No kidding. For real.

    Dec 3, 2011, 1:30 PM EST

    Tim Duncan, Marc Gasol, Matt Bonner

    ESPN.com reports that there’s a high amount of skepticism around the league regarding Marc Gasol‘s availability in restricted free agency outside of Memphis. In short, the Grizzlies have every intention of matching any offer for the young stud center. Gasol is not the biggest name on the Grizzlies, with Zach Randolph, Rudy Gay, Mike Conley,…

  7. Report: Andrew Bynum “indifferent” to trade rumors

    Dec 3, 2011, 11:00 AM EST

    Andrew-Bynum-and-Dwight-Howard-806-306x248

    Andrew Bynum went straight from high school to the circus environment that can be the Los Angeles Lakers. It is in those three rings where he learned how to be a professional. That started with the little things, like eating healthier after practice than McDonalds, and worked its way up to dealing with the media.…

  8. Jerry Buss’ son Jesse arrested for intoxication

    Dec 3, 2011, 8:30 AM EST

    JesseBuss

    Phil Jackson’s not around for questions about whether he’ll return and training camp hasn’t opened yet, but you know it’s NBA season when there’s drama surrounding the Lakers’ front office. Son of Lakers owner Jerry Buss Jesse Buss was arrested for intoxication Friday in Lexington, Kentucky. WDRB in Lexington reports: Lexington Jail officials say Buss…

  9. Friday Night Video: John Wall’s summer highlights

    Dec 2, 2011, 10:31 PM EST

    John Wall, Jeff Teague

    I watched way too much meaningless basketball this summer trying to get a fix. I will be the first to admit that you can’t take much away those games. But one guy jumped out at me — John Wall. I think he’s going to explode this season. He looks healthy (he was slowed by nagging…

  10. Why are we talking trades for Paul, Howard? Money.

    Dec 2, 2011, 8:29 PM EST

    Dwight Howard

    Since about three minutes after David Stern and Billy Hunter sat bleary-eyed in a New York conference room to say they reached a deal, we have been talking trades. Specifically Chris Paul and Dwight Howard trades. The two superstar, franchise cornerstone guys who can opt out as free agents next summer and may push their…

  11. Video: This should get Celtics fans pumped for season

    Dec 2, 2011, 6:58 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks - Game Four

    With the end of the lockout, NBA marketing campaigns are picking up. One of the first ones out came from the Celtics, with the simple catchphrase: “I am a Celtic.” The real question is who are the role players who will be able to say “I am a Celtic” and will Rajon Rondo say “I…

  12. Arron Affalo is another player that good teams really want

    Dec 2, 2011, 5:59 PM EST

    Arron Afflalo

    From ESPN.com’s Marc Stein: It’s been a familiar refrain from a handful of front-office types during the first few days of the NBA’s gradual return to offseason normalcy: Denver’s Arron Afflalo is a popular choice when you ask execs to pinpoint the most attractive free agent outside of the big men… …Sources told ESPN.com that…

  13. Pretty much everyone wants Jamal Crawford

    Dec 2, 2011, 5:29 PM EST

    crawford_jamal

    From Alex Kennedy of Hoopsworld: On Wednesday, NBA teams were allowed to contact agents for the first time since June 30, the day before the lockout commenced. Executives were given the opportunity to work the phones and express interest in upcoming free agents ten days before those players can start signing with teams. One player…

  14. Video: Stoudemire teaching Hebrew on Sesame Street

    Dec 2, 2011, 4:40 PM EST

    Amare Stoudemire

    If that headline doesn’t get you to click the link, then I don’t know what else to do. Amare Stoudemire actually stopped by Shalom Sesame, the Israeli version of the American classic to teach us about the Hebrew word for “good.” We checked, there is no way in Hebrew to say “good defense Knicks.” So, it’s…

  15. Report: Chris Paul knows he’s not getting traded to Knicks

    Dec 2, 2011, 3:51 PM EST

    The Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    Chris Paul may have asked to be traded to the New York Knicks. Or he may not have. But either way he knows he’s not getting there by a trade. That is the spin coming out of the report this week that Paul demanded a trade to play with Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire in…

  16. Magic Johnson wants to buy the Los Angeles Dodgers

    Dec 2, 2011, 3:17 PM EST

    Magic Johnson

    Right now in Los Angeles, saying you are part of a group trying to buy the Dodgers is like saying you’re writing a screenplay. Everyone is doing it. I’d expect the Kardashians to be in a group within the week. And now Magic Johnson is in as well, although he has both the money and…

  17. Rondo wants to be a Celtic, wants clarity from franchise

    Dec 2, 2011, 2:38 PM EST

    Milwaukee Bucks v Boston Celtics

    Rajon Rondo wants to be a Celtic. And he wants some clarity. That’s what his agent, Bill Duffy, told A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com. Duffy had a conversation with Celtics GM Danny Ainge Friday, and you can bet trade rumors that had Rondo being shopped for Chris Paul — something that is not going to…

  18. Mavericks will not get championship rings on Christmas

    Dec 2, 2011, 1:50 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    The Christmas present Dirk Nowitzki and Jason Kidd most want they will not get to open. They have to go shopping with Mark Cuban for it first. While the Mavericks championship banner will be raised to the rafters on the NBA’s opening day — while LeBron James and the Heat watch — the players will…

  19. Report: Hornets wouldn’t mind a Paul for Stephen Curry deal

    Dec 2, 2011, 1:11 PM EST

    T-Mobile Rookie Challenge and Youth Jam

    This is a long shot, it’s more about a glimpse into the thinking of the New Orleans Hornets as they do a dance with Chris Paul. If it comes to trading Paul, the Hornets have their eye on Stephen Curry, according to a tweet from Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News. Multiple NBA…

  20. Magic vs. Thunder rounds out NBA Christmas Day

    Dec 2, 2011, 12:05 PM EST

    Kevin Durant dunks

    The real question is will Dwight Howard be in a Magic uniform for the game… But we now know the fifth and final Christmas Day game will be the Orlando Magic at the Oklahoma City Thunder, the league just confirmed it via its official twitter account. Again, this game is the kind of big stars…
