  1. NBA pulls back efforts to bring new arena to Sacramento. Moving trucks start warming up.

    Sep 29, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    In the past few years, the Maloof brothers (owners of the Kings) have been able to pull back from the messy politics of getting a new arena built for the Sacramento Kings. That’s because four years ago David Stern himself said he personally and the NBA offices would work to get a deal done. Last…

  2. Crazy LeBron, trying to keep expectations within reason

    Sep 29, 2010, 10:25 AM EDT

    Hey LeBron James, not only do you have to lead your just thrown-together team to an NBA title, can you average a triple-double for the season while doing it? I mean, Oscar Robertson averaged that in 1962, and today’s game is pretty much exactly like that, right? You can totally do it. Hey, but no…

  3. Aaron Brooks wants a contract extension. Not going to happen.

    Sep 29, 2010, 9:58 AM EDT

    The Houston Rockets really don’t do contract extensions. The last non-rookie deal contract extension they did was in 2004 (and that was for Tracy McGrady, which worked out so well). Aaron Brooks — the breakthrough point guard and guy who just won the Most Improved Player award — thinks he should be the exception. This…

  4. Knicks deny tampering in Carmelo Anthony trade talks

    Sep 29, 2010, 9:30 AM EDT

    A four-team trade deal that would have moved Carmelo Anthony to the New Jersey Nets fell apart, apparently for a few reasons. One of them was the Nuggets trying to add players to the deal to shed payroll and get below the luxury tax threshold. But rumors surfaced that the Nuggets thought the Knicks might…

  5. Brad Jones to succeed Quin Snyder as coach of the Austin Toros

    Sep 29, 2010, 9:00 AM EDT

    The San Antonio Spurs have used the D-League as proficiently as any NBA outfit, and in the coming season, they’ll introduce a new coach to continue the tradition — or, as much of a tradition as a D-League club can have — in Austin. Former Toros head coach Quin Snyder is now on Doug Collins’…

  6. D-League to adopts FIBA goaltending, overtime rules; may be NBA testing ground

    Sep 29, 2010, 8:30 AM EDT

    After the World Championships, FIBA — meaning the world — adopted some NBA rules. For example, gone is the trapezoid key in international tournaments, replaced by the NBA rectangular key. But now the NBA may be looking at some FIBA rules in return. The D-League — often a testing ground for NBA rule changes —…

  7. Indiana Pacers' fun with experimental lineups

    Sep 28, 2010, 10:30 PM EDT

    The Indiana Pacers have a lot of new parts, new things for coach Jim O’Brien to experiment with. That has left Pacers training camp a little like the Island of Doctor Moreau, looking at the reports out of camp. Picture Mike Dunleavy at the two spotting up on the wing while Darren Collison and Roy…

  8. Kevin Garnett's intensity too much for Rondo — even at media day

    Sep 28, 2010, 9:00 PM EDT

    Pretty classic video from Celtics media day, with Rajon Rondo trying to do an interview while Kevin Garnett goes, well, Kevin Garnett in the other room. (hat tip to Trey “where you goin?” Kerby at Ball Don’t Lie)

  9. Winderman: Heat not hosting your ordinary training camp

    Sep 28, 2010, 7:51 PM EDT

    So how do you get to the Heat’s secluded training camp in the Florida Panhandle? Well, from most places, you get there by connecting through Atlanta. And then, from the airport, you get there by driving past one Waffle House, then another, and then another. But that actually doesn’t get you anywhere, at least not…

  10. Video: Heat at media day, talking team

    Sep 28, 2010, 6:30 PM EDT

    We’ve been telling you what has been going on with the Heat the last couple days, but here are the words of the men themselves at Heat media day in Miami Monday. Before they headed off to an Air Force Base training camp.

  11. Thunder's Nick Collison out indefinitely with bone bruise on knee

    Sep 28, 2010, 5:31 PM EDT

    Nick Collison is not a guy that goes down easily, he has played at least 71 games each of the last four years. Last season he did it through a number of nagging injuries that might have kept other guys out. But he is out indefinitely now and will miss at least some of camp…

  12. Carmelo Anthony calls court his "safe haven" as four-team trade dies

    Sep 28, 2010, 4:35 PM EDT

    The trade rumors are still there — even as the much-discussed four-team trade is dead. The talk will not die no matter what happens with this round of rumors, there will be another and another and… Carmelo Anthony wants to get away from those rumors. Probably more than he wants to get away from Denver.…

  13. Anderson Varejao excused from Cavaliers camp due to family emergency

    Sep 28, 2010, 4:15 PM EDT

    Anderson Varejao is missing the start of Cavaliers camp due after being given leave to deal with a death in the family. Varejao is currently heading back to his native Brazil but should be back after a few days to resume training. Varejao did twist his ankle slightly on the first day of camp. Although…

  14. Jason Kidd calls "B.S." on report he tried to talk 'Melo out of New Jersey

    Sep 28, 2010, 3:58 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony clearly is having second thoughts about taking his talents to New Jersey. Can’t imagine why. We just listened to Springsteen’s “Born To Run” and he made it sound like such a wonderful place. Then there was the report from Sam Amick of FanHouse that Jason Kidd warned Melo about the perils of New…

  15. Timberwolves using Michael Beasley at small forward, they may want to ask Miami about that

    Sep 28, 2010, 3:29 PM EDT

    Reports out of Timberwolves camp say that Michael Beasley is playing the three spot, according to the Pioneer Press. Which makes some sense when you think Kevin Love needs to be the starting power forward for Minnesota. Except… Maybe the T-Wolves should call up the Heat and ask how Beasley worked out at the three…

  16. Eduardo Najera out three weeks with hernia surgery

    Sep 28, 2010, 3:07 PM EDT

    Bobcats forward Eduardo Najera will miss most of training camp as he recovers from surgery to repair a sports hernia. The surgery took place Sept. 10 and he should be out three more weeks. That’s not going to help Najera’s effort to get minutes. He was already fighting guys like Tyrus Thomas, Boris Diaw, Derrick…

  17. Greg Oden: "Is there any proof that I'm a bust?"

    Sep 28, 2010, 2:51 PM EDT

    This much is clear: Greg Oden has yet to work out like the Portland Trail Blazers had hoped. Three years into his NBA career he has played 82 games and had multiple injuries and surgeries to his knees. But is he a bust? Oden himself took exception to that characterization while speaking with Jason Quick…

  18. Heat first practice "intense," LeBron has ice on elbow

    Sep 28, 2010, 2:30 PM EDT

    There was no discussion of it and it is probably nothing, but you had to notice — LeBron James had an ice pack on his right elbow, the one that gave him problems though the playoffs, after the Heat’s first day of practice Tuesday. What should we read into that? Not much. NBA teams go…

  19. NBA Previews: The whole league from PBT

    Sep 28, 2010, 1:51 PM EDT

    The PBT previews have started. We are working our way through The Association, division by division, through all 30 teams. Looking at what happened this summer, what you’re impossible fan dreams are, and we’re looking at reality. To make it easy for you to follow, here are the previews we have done so far —…

  20. Shaun Livingston already dealing with fluid on the knee

    Sep 28, 2010, 1:44 PM EDT

    I’m rooting for Shaun Livingston to make it. I know, media are supposed to be objective yada yada yada… we root for some things. We have favorites (and no, probably not the Heat or Lakers or whoever you think in most cases). I want Livingston to make it. But already there are setbacks. He has…
