  1. Hawks trade for Kirk Hinrich

    Feb 23, 2011, 7:48 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Washington Wizards

    Multiple sources are reporting that the Atlanta Hawks have agreed to trade Mike Bibby, Mo Evans, rookie Jordan Crawford, and a #1 pick to the Washington Wizards in exchange for Kirk Hinrich and Hilton Armstrong. This deal fills an obvious need for the Hawks. Mike Bibby is still a sharpshooter, but he has contributed in…

  2. Mike Dunleavy’s broken thumb likely kills any trade hopes

    Feb 23, 2011, 6:57 PM EDT

    DUNLEAVY_MIKE

    Well, that was some unfortunate timing. Not that there is a good time to break your thumb, as the Indiana Pacers’ Mike Dunleavy did Tuesday night in a win over the Washington Wizards. The injury will have him out indefinitely, the team announced. Dunleavy was one of the key trade chips for the Pacers, as…

  3. What to Watch: Melo Debuts for the Knicks

    Feb 23, 2011, 6:55 PM EDT

    New York Knicks Introduce Carmelo Anthony

    After many, many, many, many, many, many, many, many months, Carmelo Anthony has finally been traded to the New York Knicks. He’ll debut tonight beside Amar’e Stoudemire against the Bucks in front of a sold-out crowd which will be buzzing like arguably never before.  But what exactly should we be watching for, exactly? Here are…

  4. Carmelo is in New York! (And Dolan wants you to know Isiah is not)

    Feb 23, 2011, 6:36 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony James Dolan

    New York is buzzing over Carmelo Anthony. Like first date with Minka Kelly kind of buzzing. They are over-the-top giddy and can’t believe they landed this. Anthony himself is trying to play it cool while still getting the lay of the land in what can be the unpredictable world of the New York Knicks. Like…

  5. Jerry Sloan says no, he is not coming out of retirement

    You can almost picture Jerry Sloan taking this call from a reporter and in the middle of it yelling “you kids get off my lawn.” The old school coach who walked away two weeks ago told Chris Tomasson of FanHouse he is not returning to the Utah Jazz now that Deron Williams has been traded…

  6. Chauncey Billups reminds us of the human side of trades

    Feb 23, 2011, 4:47 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Denver Nuggets

    When an NBA trade gets made, we start breaking it down on the court. Did the Nets get better? What do the Jazz do next? Same with the Nuggets and the Knicks and everyone else. But while we break down if Chauncey Billups is a good fit in the Knicks offense, Billups has to go…

  7. Video: Dwyane Wade can hit literally any shot

    Feb 23, 2011, 2:29 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers  v Miami Heat

    Dwyane Wade, basketball magician. As proof, we submit this video from last night’s Heat destruction of the Kings. Falling, flip it up and it falls. Pretty much, that’s how the entire night went for the Heat — whatever they did worked and the Kings stood around looking dumbfounded.

  8. Chris Paul is no fan of the Deron Williams trade

    Feb 23, 2011, 2:04 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New Orleans Hornets

    There was a lot of shock going around the league when news broke that the Jazz had traded Deron Williams to the New Jersey Nets. Fans, media and players were shocked — and that includes Deron Williams himself. Chris Paul was no fan of the deal, he wrote this on twitter: Utah traded DWill?? #EpicFail…

  9. League to blast horn to speed up games

    Feb 23, 2011, 1:42 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Charlotte Bobcats, Game 3

    The NBA wants to speed up its games a little, and since it can’t get Amir Johnson and DeMarcus Cousins to stop fouling so much it has come up with another plan. The league’s scoreboard operators have been instructed to blast the in arena horn just before the end of timeouts and breaks in periods…

  10. Nuggets GM on Carmelo Anthony deal: “We got killed”

    Feb 23, 2011, 1:13 PM EDT

    Image (1) canthony_billups-thumb-250x140-18636.jpg for post 3784

    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…

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

    Feb 23, 2011, 12:29 PM EDT

    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.…

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

    Feb 23, 2011, 11:12 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Feb 23, 2011, 10:47 AM EDT

    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…

  14. Report: Devin Harris likely headed to Dallas

    Feb 23, 2011, 10:09 AM EDT

    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…

  15. Video: Amar’e Stoudemire talks Carmelo Anthony

    Feb 23, 2011, 9:42 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Feb 23, 2011, 9:33 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Feb 23, 2011, 9:09 AM EDT

    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 —…

  18. Report: Miami Heat shopping Mike Miller

    Feb 23, 2011, 3:42 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Feb 23, 2011, 3:15 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Feb 23, 2011, 1:30 AM EDT

    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…
