  1. Looming lockout or no, there will still be a draft this June. After that? Good question.

    Nov 24, 2010, 4:10 PM EDT

    2010 NBA Draft

    Yes, we’re still pretty convinced in these parts that there will be a lockout come July 1. Hope we’re wrong, don’t think we are. But lockout or no, there will be an NBA Draft this June 23. Clippers fans can start debating now whether or not to draft Harrison Barnes with that top pick. What…

  2. Beaubois likely out another three, four weeks in Dallas

    Nov 24, 2010, 3:30 PM EDT

    roddybeaubois

    Maybe the Dallas Mavericks can get a Roddy Beaubois for Christmas? The second-year guard that was going to play a much larger role with the team this season — and bring the speed and playmaking the team lacked last season — is out and may be out another three to four weeks, a source told…

  3. Elton Brand suspended one game for flagrant foul

    Nov 24, 2010, 2:58 PM EDT

    Brand_McGee_Foul

    Elton Brand’s ugly foul on JaVale McGee late in the Sixers loss to the Washington Wizards Tuesday has earned him a one-game suspension from the league. Brand will sit out tonight’s game on the road against Toronto, the league announced. The suspension for Brand is without pay. He earned it for a cheap shot, frustration…

  4. Thunder assign Cole Aldrich to D-League

    Cole Aldrich, the No. 11 pick that anchored the Kansas Jayhawks last season, has been assigned to the Tulsa 66ers of the D-League. It’s a smart move — Aldrich needs seasoning to become the defensive anchor in the middle the Thunder hope he can be for them. However, with Nenad Krstic and Serge Ibaka and…

  5. Stan Van Gundy, Eric Spoelstra fire back at Phil Jackson

    Image (1) jackson.jpg for post 2306

    Phil Jackson just loves doing what he did to the Heat yesterday, going on the radio in Chicago and lobbing a verbal hand grenade into their midst. As if they weren’t dealing with enough, now they can answer some questions about Pat Riley coming down from on high to take over the team. Stan Van…

  6. Vince Carter to sit Wednesday against Miami, JJ Redick to start

    Things could have been a lot worse after Vince Carter said he felt a “sharp pain” in his knee the other night. He’s not expected to be out long. But he will be out Wednesday night against the Heat, according to Alex Kennedy of Hoopsworld. JJ Redick will get the start in his place. That…

  7. San Antonio is back — and interesting this time

    Nov 24, 2010, 12:52 PM EDT

    Manu Ginobili, Tony Parker, Tim Duncan

    The San Antonio Spurs, even at their peak, felt like your father’s favorite team — quiet and efficient. Good defense, methodical pace, the backboard is your friend. Fundamental. Controlled. That’s not bad, I love my father — I wish I were more like him in a lot of ways — but that doesn’t mean I…

  8. Winderman: Heat would like mulligan on expectations hype

    Nov 24, 2010, 11:46 AM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v Miami Heat

    The Miami Heat would like a do-over. No, not on the offseason haul of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh. But rather on the approach. Uh, yeah, perhaps they did get just a wee bit ahead of themselves. “It’s not easy putting this kind of talent together,” Wade acknowledged in the wake of losses…

  9. Thunder get creative with Nick Collison’s contract

    Nov 24, 2010, 11:31 AM EDT

    collison

    Oh, Sam Presti is being clever again. We told you yesterday that the Thunder have locked up Nick Collison in a new deal that runs through the summer of 2014. It helps keep their core together and gives them a solid backup big they know they can count on. But the deal itself, pretty creative,…

  10. Danny Green out, Ime Udoka likely in for San Antonio

    Nov 24, 2010, 10:44 AM EDT

    09udoka

    The Spurs top of the roster is just fine, thank you very much. But they are making some tweaks on the bottom half. Danny Green was brought in just a week ago but now he has been let loose by the team. In his place, the Spurs are expected to bring back Ime Udoka, according…

  11. Report: Kings have made calls to trade for a point guard

    Nov 24, 2010, 9:46 AM EDT

    Image (1) Evans_3-thumb-250x339-9343.jpg for post 1342

    The struggling Sacramento Kings have an idea of what they need to do. Right now, Tyreke Evans is the point guard for the Sacramento Kings. And he’s not a bad one. Certainly a score-first guy but someone averaging 5.2 assists per game, about 18.9 percent of his team’s baskets when he is on the floor…

  12. Quote of the day: Shaq is like laundry

    Nov 24, 2010, 9:06 AM EDT

    Kevin Garnett, Shaquille O'Neal

    “Shaq is like paradise, man. You ever wash your sheets and then go outside and hang them out, and the sun dries them? You ever smell the sheets? That’s what Shaq is, Shaq is like.” —Kevin Garnett, talking about what it’s like to play with Shaquille O’Neal, via the Boston Herald.

  13. Video: Brandon Rush and the Pacers were hitting everything

    Couple of very nice days for Indiana, what with beating the heat then getting the win on the second night of a back-to-back over Cleveland. And you know things are going your way when shots like this are falling. Right Brandon Rush?

  14. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Think Doug Collins is glad he came back to coaching now?

    Nov 24, 2010, 3:15 AM EDT

    John Wall, Evan Turner

    What you missed while trying to snap up McDonald’s Happy Meals before they all get banned… Kobe being Kobe was part of the Lakers beating the Bulls in our Game of the Night. Wizards 116, Sixers 114 (OT): If Doug Collins were to call up some executives at TNT to see if they would take…

  15. Game of the night: Where you can’t throw anything new at Kobe

    Nov 24, 2010, 2:33 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Luol Deng

    Kobe has seen it before. On much bigger stage. He knows how a Tom Thibodeau team is going to defend him. Whenever and wherever he got the ball Tuesday night he patiently waited to see where the double would come from, then he would try to pass to the cutter. Or he kicks it to…

  16. Nets Terrence Williams suspended two games by team

    Nov 23, 2010, 11:12 PM EDT

    Image (1) NBA_williams-thumb-250x185-5474.jpg for post 19

    Terrence Williams, welcome to Avery Johnson’s doghouse. Williams has been suspended for two games — Tuesday night’s win over Atlanta and an upcoming trip to Boston — for “repeated violations of team policy.” Johnson was more direct with ESPNNewYork. “It’s something we’ve dealt with for the past two or three weeks,” Johnson said. “I don’t…

  17. Elton Brand ejected after one ugly flagrant two, fine coming

    Image (1) elton_brand-thumb-250x222-21344.jpg for post 4402

    Elton Brand is going to be writing a check to the league soon. In the fourth quarter of the Sixers overtime loss to the Wizards (which never should have gone to overtime, but check out Baseline to Baseline later for that story), JaVale McGee had a wide open dunk and once he was in the…

  18. New Warriors owners talking openly about San Francisco, Oakland may not like that

    Nov 23, 2010, 8:33 PM EDT

    san-francisco-skyline-at-night

    The new owners of the Golden State Warriors have not been subtle about where they left their heart — they have talked openly about loving San Francisco. They’ve started flirting with The City. As Arena Digest points out, the first big media event that Peter Guber and Joseph Lacob held was in a San Francisco…

  19. Maybe it’s a little too early to freak out about a lockout

    Nov 23, 2010, 6:33 PM EDT

    NBA & NBA Players Association Announce New CBA

    Welcome to the world of my contradictions. Put up your feet, make yourself at home. On one hand, I am fully convinced there will be an NBA lockout come next July 1. Talk to both sides informally and that feels like the only possible outcome. But I think that Darren Rovell at CNBC is right…

  20. John Wall game-time decision to get back on court tonight

    Nov 23, 2010, 6:05 PM EDT

    Wall_dunk

    UPDATE 6:06 pm: In his pregame comments, Wizards coach Flip Saunders said that Wall would be a game-time decision, to be made after he warmed up. If Wall does play, he will come off the bench, Saunders said. 11: 28 am: For the last week, John Wall has ceded the “ridiculous rookie highlight of the…
