  1. Winderman: Lose a free agent? You should get another draft pick.

    Jan 13, 2011, 4:16 PM EST

    New York Knicks v Miami Heat

    Among counterproposals offered recently by the National Basketball Players Association during collective-bargaining negotiations were various means to make it easier to facilitate trades. That, of course, is the type of item you put on the table as a means to eventually remove it when it comes down to cash concerns. But last summer, and this…

  2. The Bulls miss Joakim Noah on offense. Seriously.

    Jan 13, 2011, 3:39 PM EST

    Joakim Noah

    Do you want to know one key reason advanced statistics have found a foothold in the NBA front offices? Because they give you evidence to challenge your beliefs and understanding of the game. It can confirm or make you re-evaluate what you think you know. And a good GM is always questioning everything. For example,…

  3. Raptors sign Sundiata Gaines to 10-day contract

    Jan 13, 2011, 2:46 PM EST

    Sundiata Gaines

    Is there a dramatic game winner in the Raptors future? Toronto has signed guard Sundiata Gaines to a 10-day contract, giving them a little more depth at the point as Jose Calderon and Jerryd Bayless fight through injuries. Gains made some fans last season in Utah — highlighted by hitting a dramatic game winner —…

  4. Fans send Rajon Rondo, Kevin Garnett to bench in latest All-Star balloting

    Jan 13, 2011, 1:45 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Detroit Pistons, Game 6

    Apparently Boston sports fans have been so focused on what Tom Brady is going to do to the Jets secondary they forgot to vote for the NBA All-Star Game starters. How else do you explain the latest release of NBA All-Star voting which drops two Celtics from the starting lineup? Chicago’s Derrick Rose has leapfrogged…

  5. Nets Avery Johnson, Brook Lopez having some issues

    Jan 13, 2011, 12:59 PM EST

    New Jersey Nets v Atlanta Hawks

    A couple of days ago, when asked if he dreamed of coaching someone like Carmelo Anthony, Nets coach Avery Johnson had a snappy comeback: “No. I dream of our center getting 10 rebounds.” Wednesday night, in the fourth quarter of a close battle with the Phoenix Suns, the Nets ran few plays for Lopez even…

  6. Clippers Kaman to be out until February. Then what?

    Jan 13, 2011, 12:16 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Clippers

    It wasn’t all good news for the Clippers Wednesday night. Center Chris Kaman — who has played only eight games this season with a severely sprained ankle he has re-injured once — said he will be out until next month, even longer than expected, he told ESPNLosAngeles. “It’s not right right now so I kind…

  7. Suns president apologizes to fans for team’s play

    Jan 13, 2011, 11:35 AM EST

    Lon Babby

    Tuesday night, a reeling Denver Nuggets team blew out the Phoenix Suns (that loss would have gotten a lot more attention if the Cavs hadn’t been historically bad and LeBron hadn’t tweeted about it). That loss was the Suns eighth in their last 10 games. Wednesday morning, Suns president Lon Babby went on his weekly…

  8. Knicks have deal to move Anthony Randolph for first-round pick

    Jan 13, 2011, 11:03 AM EST

    New York Knicks v Milwaukee Bucks

    As it seems with everything lately, it all comes back to what Carmelo Anthony wants. And nobody seems to really know what he will do. If Anthony tells Denver it is “Knicks or bust” — killing the stalled big trade with the Nets — the Knicks can make a move to get a first round…

  9. Video proof: Baron Davis still has hops

    Jan 13, 2011, 10:15 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Clippers

    We were telling you this in talking about the Clippers win over the Heat — Baron Davis has been playing well lately. He’s not running down and just jacking up threes early in the clock (well, one time against Miami), he’s running the offense. Clippers coach Vinny Del Negro talked about how he brings some…

  10. Brandon Roy still looking for answers for knee

    Jan 13, 2011, 9:42 AM EST

    Detroit Pistons v Portland Trail Blazers

    Brandon Roy is getting rest for his knee. Which is nice. But he also is meeting with doctors as he continues to look for long-term answers for the knee pain that has slowed him to average this season and has sidelined him for weeks. The Portland Tribune said one of the more radical plans is…

  11. Rip Hamilton gets dreaded DNP-CD; teammates confused

    Jan 13, 2011, 9:27 AM EST

    Detroit Pistons v Cleveland Cavaliers

    Rip Hamilton put on his jersey as he has done before 822 other NBA games — but for the first time he could remember never got the sweats off. Pistons coach John Kuester never called Hamilton’s number. He had gone to a new starting lineup to try and bring a new energy, but Hamilton was…

  12. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Where all good streaks must come to an end

    Jan 13, 2011, 8:47 AM EST

    Dwight Howard, Willie Green, Emeka Okafor, David West, Trevor Ariza

    What you missed while… why weren’t you watching the Clippers beat the Heat? (That was our game of the night.) Hornets 92, Magic 89 (OT): Orlando’s nine-game win streak ends because they shot just 39.1 percent in this one — not that they didn’t get good looks, they did. The shots just didn’t fall. That…

  13. Game of the night: The Clippers announce their presence with authority against Heat

    Jan 13, 2011, 3:35 AM EST

    Blake Griffin, LeBron James

    The Clippers have arrived. Not arrived like a powerhouse in the Western Conference. Not even arrived like they will be a playoff team (they dug too big a hole early on to climb out of it). But arrived on the national radar. You need to be watching this team. Wednesday they announced their arrival with…

  14. LeBron James says he is day-to-day with sprained ankle

    Jan 13, 2011, 2:45 AM EST

    LeBron James

    In the fourth quarter of the Heat’s loss to the Clippers — yes, the Heat lost to the Clippers, you read that right — LeBron James attacked the basket and after a missed layup rolled his ankle as he landed and he tried to keep weight off it as he ended up 10 feet off…

  15. Kevin Garnett out Wednesday, likely Friday as well

    Jan 12, 2011, 11:03 PM EST

    Garnett injured

    This was the week that Kevin Garnett was expected back from the calf injury that sidelined him two weeks ago. But we all know the overly-cautious MO of the Celtics when it comes to injuries in the regular season, so we should have expected it might take longer. Along those lines, Garnett did not suit…

  16. LeBron says nothing personal in tweet about Cleveland

    Jan 12, 2011, 9:54 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Houston Rockets

    Remember last night, after the Cavaliers Poseidon Adventure-level disaster against the Lakers in a 55-point loss, LeBron let out what seemed a pretty personal shot via twitter? Crazy. Karma is a b****.. Gets you every time. Its not good to wish bad on anybody. God sees everything! Well, before tonight’s game against the Clippers James…

  17. Andrei Kirilenko becomes United States citizen

    Jan 12, 2011, 7:58 PM EST

    Andrei Kirilenko

    Andrei Kirilenko, a 10-year NBA veteran out of Russia, was part of the early waves of European stars coming to the league – when he was drafted in 1999 he was the youngest European ever taken. A decade later he likes what he found here. So much so that the Jazz forward and his wife…

  18. Iverson headed back to U.S. for leg surgery, denies retirement report

    Jan 12, 2011, 6:43 PM EST

    Allen Iverson

    Allen Iverson is coming back to the United States — but not to retire as a Turkish news service had reported earlier. An MRI has found a very painful lesion on Iverson’s ankle and he is returning from Istanbul, Turkey, where he had been playing to the United States for surgery and medical care, his…

  19. Michael Beasley may miss games due to ankle sprain

    Jan 12, 2011, 6:22 PM EST

    Michael Beasley

    Timberwolves forward Michael Beasley rolled his ankle and got a mild sprain last Friday night against Portland. He played through it Sunday against the Spurs but rolled it again. He played through that on Tuesday after some treatment and, you guessed it, aggravated the sprain for the third straight game. Beasley has gotten the message,…

  20. ‘Melo talks to LeBron, adds situations are different

    Jan 12, 2011, 4:45 PM EST

    Olympics Day 14 - Basketball

    Not a lot of people have been in Carmelo Anthony’s shoes — a legitimate NBA superstar pushing his way to a new team at the peak of his career. One guy who did — LeBron James. Anthony told the media Wednesday he and LeBron have spoken recently, but added the situations are very different (via…
