    Did NBA teams lose money last year? And if so, really how much? In the absence of the owners and players union sitting down and actually talking, the question of loss has become the talking point of the NBA lockout. There has been plenty of back-and-forth between the NBA and the players union — and…

  2. Cavaliers buy D-League team; league affiliations announced

    Jul 7, 2011, 5:08 PM EST

    Image (1) D-league-thumb-250x256-12043.gif for post 2083

    Next season, whether or not we have NBA games, we will have D-League games. (Some of which you can see on Versus, just to do an in-house plug.) And there will be D-League games in Canton, Ohio, because the Cleveland Cavaliers have purchased the D-League team in New Mexico Thunderbirds and will be moving them…

  3. It’s summer, but Jason Terry still tweaking LeBron

    Jul 7, 2011, 3:55 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    Jason Terry just can’t help himself. All through the finals he didn’t back down and trash talked LeBron. The Mavs won, but Terry isn’t done. Remember how after the finals ended LeBron said that all those Heat haters, “at the end of the day they have to wake up tomorrow and have the same life…

  4. Don’t expect a flood of top NBA players to Europe

    Jul 7, 2011, 3:31 PM EST

    Deron Williams

    There is some logic to why Deron Williams would sign with Besiktas Cola Turka to play next season. For one, it puts some pressure on the NBA owners in the Collective Bargaining talks (although not that much). Williams is coming off wrist injuries at the end of last season and this would let him get…

  5. D-Will’s new Turkish coach also wants Kobe. Sure, why not?

    Jul 7, 2011, 2:15 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Two

    And I want to drive a Maserati GranTurismo convertible… Ergin Ataman, the coach of the Turkish team Besiktas in Istanbul that has a deal in principle with Deron Williams in a real coup — one that has to get the clearance of international governing body FIBA still — plus has reached terms with  Zaza Pachulia…

  6. Mickael Pietrus says Kobe wants him on Lakers

    Jul 7, 2011, 2:00 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    Mickael Pietrus did not like how he was used by the Phoenix Suns after being traded to them from Orlando last season. Now he wants to change his focus and play a role on a team that can win a title, he told the French publication L’Equipe (via Hoopshype, who did the translation). And he…

  7. Battier: “We can’t afford to go through what the NFL is going through”

    Jul 7, 2011, 1:43 PM EST

    Memphis Grizzlies v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game One

    There are a lot of differences between the NFL and NBA lockouts. A lot. Starting with the NFL is a money making league, the NBA has been losing money. That changes things. Another is that the NFL is better able to withstand the public relations hit of a lockout, something Shane Battier talked about when…

  8. When free agency happens, Nets to focus on Humphries

    Jul 7, 2011, 1:23 PM EST

    Kris Humphries

    Someday, eventually, we will talk basketball and free agency again instead of percentage of BRI. When that day comes, the Nets will need to secure a power forward (they traded Derrick Favors to get Deron Williams last season). They also need a three because Travis Outlaw is not the answer, no matter what his father…

  9. Not everybody wants to play in Europe: Meet Jonas Jerebko

    Jul 7, 2011, 12:53 PM EST

    Image (1) Jerebko_layup-thumb-250x373-22144.jpg for post 6323

    The move of NBA players to Europe may be picking up steam – Deron Williams to Turkey is now your headliner — but not everyone wants to go. Not even Europeans. Meet Jonas Jerebko. The Pistons Swedish forward is staying stateside, his agent told the Detroit Free Press. Doug Neustadt, who represents Jerebko, said this…

  10. Deron Williams will play in Turkey if lockout lingers

    Jul 7, 2011, 10:58 AM EST

    New Jersey Nets' Deron Williams (C) drib

    UPDATE 10:58 AM: Maybe we were wrong. Apparently Nets star Deron Williams does plan to play in Turkey if the lockout lingers, Marc Stein of ESPN tweeteed: Sources w/knowledge of Deron Williams’ plans confirm his intent to play for Besiktas in Turkey if lockout continues Multiple sources now confirm the story. The key part here is…

  11. Adam Morrison working out, looking to play in Europe

    Jul 7, 2011, 10:52 AM EST

    amorrison

    When we last saw former Gonzaga star Adam Morrison, he was collecting an NBA Championship ring sitting on the bench of the Los Angeles Lakers. Something that was uncomfortable for him. He didn’t play anywhere last season. We didn’t know what was up with him until we saw this tweet from Chris Tomasson. After not…

  12. Lockout messing with Stephen Curry’s wedding plans

    Jul 7, 2011, 9:48 AM EST

    T-Mobile Rookie Challenge and Youth Jam

    The NBA lockout is messing with another wedding. Last time it was Chris Bosh, but the league gave approval for some Miami Heat coaches and officials to attend his wedding. Now Stephen Curry, who is getting married this month in Charlotte, is running into the same thing, according to Marc Spears at Yahoo. He’ll have…

  13. Report: Wolves may move Rambis to front office

    Jul 7, 2011, 8:50 AM EST

    Kurt Rambis

    This whole situation is just pathetic. The Minnesota Timberwolves have yet to officially fire Kurt Rambis. Make no mistake, he’s done. He will not be coaching the Timberwolves next year. That much is clear. But Rambis continues to be hung out to dry by the wolves. Officially he is still the coach. Nobody has fired…

  14. Ray Allen calls lockout an “almost embarrassing”

    Jul 7, 2011, 8:12 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks - Game Three

    Note to Ray Allen, take the almost out of your quote and you are spot on. In the end, the lockout is embarrassing, which is almost what he told CSN New England. “I look at Larry Bird, Michael Jordan, Dr. J, and . . . the money we make, not only us as players but…

  15. The Nets want more Travis Outlaw? Probably not.

    Jul 6, 2011, 10:55 PM EST

    New Jersey Nets forward Outlaw celebrates after scoring against the Toronto Raptors during triple overtime in their NBA game in London

    As a dad, I totally get the wanting and expecting the best for your kids. I understand thinking they are the best ever. Mine (all under 8) will all grow up to be doctors or the lead actress in Broadway musicals. I have no doubt. That side of me can see where Travis Outlaw’s dad…

  16. Report: Lockout could cost ESPN, ABC, TNT $1.25 billion

    Image (1) television07-thumb-250x166-21995.png for post 6282

    The list of people with a lot to lose if the NBA lockout stretches out just keeps right on growing. Next up are the networks that David Stern calls NBA partners — ESPN and ABC, as well as TNT. They will be some angry partners if the numbers from AdWeek are correct (via CBS Eye…

  17. Length of CBA fight may be tied to television deals

    Jul 6, 2011, 7:59 PM EST

    NBA Finals TV Team Basketball

    Somehow, you can always tie professional sports back into television money. That may include the NBA lockout. Right now, the players deal on the table calls for them to take slightly less in in overall revenue (from 57 percent of Basketball Related Income now to 54.3 percent next season) with a five or six year…

  18. NBA releases books showing $1.85 billion loss over six years

    Jul 6, 2011, 7:17 PM EST

    NBA Commissioner Stern holds a news conference before Game 1 of the NBA Finals basketball series between the Dallas Mavericks and the Miami Heat in Miami

    The league office has been working hard in recent days to make its case that the NBA owners are losing money. Big money. They have now released some audited net income numbers — money left after all the costs are put out — to Forbes in an effort to make a more definitive case. The…

  19. Joe Johnson has a ridiculous truck

    Jul 6, 2011, 6:40 PM EST

    Joe Johnson Truckpocalypse

    Joe Johnson, who got the largest contract of any player in the summer of 2010, apparently spent a chunk of that money on the truck you see here. According to SB Nation’s Andrew Sharp, the truck contains three televisions, front and rear televisions, a seat that folds into a bed, and a “train horn.” Clearly,…

  20. Sources: D’Antoni’s assistant coaches sign contract extensions

    Jul 6, 2011, 4:45 PM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v New York Knicks

    Marc Berman of the New York Post has the story: A source said Mike D’Antoni’s assistant coaches — Dan D’Antoni, Phil Weber, Herb Williams and Kenny Atkinson — have signed contract extensions for next season, though the club has not and will not announce it. D’Antoni has plans to add another defensive assistant to the staff. The…
