  1. Blazers to let GM Pritchard run the draft, then fire him

    Jun 24, 2010, 7:57 PM EDT

    Kevin Pritchard is an NBA Draft wiz — Brandon Roy and LaMarcus Aldridge and Nicolas Batum and everyone that makes up the young and up-and-coming Blazers. (And he gets a pass on Oden, everybody thought he was a sure thing.) So on the day of the draft, the Portand Trailblazers have fired Pritchard, according to…

  2. Breaking: The Wizards might pick John Wall

    Jun 24, 2010, 7:30 PM EDT

    I know John Wall has already been penciled in as the No. 1 pick in the draft. Then his name was written in pen, and probably in permanent marker. Well, it’s finally time to etch Wall’s name in stone and trace it with blood. Nothing is more certain on draft night, and barring a catastrophe…

  3. NBA Draft: Nets phone ringing off hook from teams wanting third pick, may listen to Indy

    Jun 24, 2010, 6:01 PM EDT

    Derrick Favors is the flavor of the day. Apparently, because a lot of teams are trying to trade up to the No. 3 spot to draft him according to Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski. Part of this was fueled by the Nets themselves shopping the pick all over the place the last week or so, but only…

  4. Chicago talks trading Luol Deng to Orlando, will throw in free Shamwow if it will help

    Jun 24, 2010, 5:42 PM EDT

    Luol Deng can be yours, if the price is right.     The Bulls have already cleared out a lot of cap space if the Kirk Hinrich trade goes through (meaning unless Washington sobers up) but they would still like to move Deng and are shopping him around. One rumor now in few places was Deng…

  5. Bulls agree to unload Hinrich, free up space for two max free agents

    Jun 24, 2010, 5:25 PM EDT

    UPDATE 5:25 pm: This trade has now been confirmed by multiple sources. David Aldridge at NBA.com has some reasoning on why the Wizards would do this deal: The Wizards have coveted the 29-year-old Hinrich for several seasons, wanting his veteran presence in their backcourt and his ability to play both guard spots. Besides his on-court…

  6. Heat looking to buy out James Jones, create an insane amount of cap space

    Jun 24, 2010, 3:42 PM EDT

    According to ESPN’s Chris Sherdian, the Miami Heat are currently attempting to reach a buyout agreement with forward James Jones in order to free up more cap space. After unceremoniously dumping Daequan Cook for cap space recently, buying out Jones would mean that Michael Beasley and Mario Chalmers will be the only Heat players technically…

  7. Chris Bosh says he is waiting on LeBron. Aren't we all?

    Jun 24, 2010, 3:08 PM EDT

    As Mick Jagger said: Chris Bosh is not waiting on a lady, he’s just waiting on LeBron. (Well, he said something like that, it was a long time ago and I was pretty stoned last time I heard that song.) Chris Bosh admitted on ESPN radio this morning what we all knew already: LeBron eats…

  8. John Calipari vocal in support of Cousins

    Jun 24, 2010, 2:57 PM EDT

    John Calipari does seem to have a knack for developing NBA-ready players. Both the 2008 and 2009 rookies of the year played for Calipari at Memphis, and likely #1 pick John Wall played for Calipari at Kentucky this season. Does that mean we should listen to Calipari when he says that the top five teams…

  9. Givony: Thunder looking to trade two first-rounders for #11 pick

    Jun 24, 2010, 2:37 PM EDT

    According to the twitter account of Draft Express’ Jonathan Givony, The Oklahoma City Thunder’s potential trade with the Indiana Pacers is “dead.” The Thunder are now reportedly in talks with the New Orleans Hornets, who hold the #11 pick in the draft. According to Givony, the trade currently being discussed would involve the Thunder sending…

  10. Report: Josh Childress about to get offer from Washington Wizards

    Jun 24, 2010, 2:36 PM EDT

    The ‘fro may be back. Two years ago, Josh Childress couldn’t get a team to make him a offer, one to compete with what he considered an undersized one from Atlanta. It wasn’t because other teams didn’t want him — he may have been the best sixth man in the game — but those teams…

  11. NBA Draft: PBT's second rounders to watch

    Jun 24, 2010, 1:56 PM EDT

    Michael Redd. Carlos Boozer. Gilbert Arenas. Dennis Rodman. Manu Ginobili. Guys fall through to the second round that can ball. Guys like those above. History tells us most of the guys drafted in the second round Thursday will get a shot in the NBA, only 10 or so will stick, but one or two will…

  12. NBA Draft: PBT's draft sleepers

    Jun 24, 2010, 12:55 PM EDT

    These are the guys that cause general managers the most grief (unless you drafted Kwame Brown No. 1 overall, then your grief is your own making). Five years from now your draft pick may turn out to be a solid role player, but every time someone talks about him they’ll say “but he passed up…

  13. Don't be shocked if Rudy Fernandez finds a new home tonight

    Jun 24, 2010, 12:42 PM EDT

    As promising and charismatic as the Portland Trailblazers’ young core was (and still is, for those really paying attention), Rudy Fernandez always seemed to be a bit superfluous. Even during Rudy’s terrific rookie season, he seemed like a placeholder; it was glorious to watch him thrive and produce while he could, but Brandon Roy was…

  14. Clippers page Dwane Casey and Kevin McHale first in head coaching search

    Jun 24, 2010, 12:13 PM EDT

    The Clippers’ coaching search is finally underway, and one lucky head coach will have the opportunity to write themselves into the Clipper lore. It’s an old franchise with lots of tradition, and one could only hope that whichever coach is eventually selected isn’t too intimidated by the great coaches of Clipper teams past. Stand up,…

  15. NBA Draft: Pacers will give you the No. 10 pick for a point guard, but you'll want more

    Jun 24, 2010, 11:42 AM EDT

    Indiana wants to run. Indiana has nobody who can lead the break. Ergo, an ugly and unproductive season. Larry Bird has been trying since the season ended to get an established point guard, via trade or free agency or alien abduction. Whatever it takes. Since it is NBA Draft day, the Pacers are trying to…

  16. Grizzlies admit they were wrong about 2009 draft, still completely miss the point

    Jun 24, 2010, 11:37 AM EDT

    The Grizzlies have learned! They admitted a mistake! An NBA front office actually admitted a draft mistake! Good times are on the way! We can learn! Or not. The Memphis Commercial Appeal’s Geoff Calkins has an article today leading with a fine quote from the man in charge of the Grizzlies, Michael Heisley. If you…

  17. Celtics dangling Kendrick Perkins to move up in draft

    Jun 24, 2010, 11:09 AM EDT

    The Celtics have a young star point guard paired with a front line ready to star in a remake of Cocoon. Boston knows that long term it needs to get younger. Boston also knows there are some quality big men up at the top of the draft that fit their needs. So the Celtics have…

  18. NBA Draft: PBT's draft busts

    Jun 24, 2010, 10:26 AM EDT

    The list is long and infamous: Kwame Brown, Adam Morrison, Darko Milic, Nikoloz Tskitishvili. There may not be any epic busts of that level in this draft, but there are going to be busts. Somebody is going to disappoint an excited fan base. Who? Here’s who we think. Cole Aldrich: I’m hesitant to put Aldrich…

  19. Winderman: Hats players put on at NBA Draft may just be loaners

    Jun 24, 2010, 9:30 AM EDT

    The greatest concern among leading NBA Draft prospects is not a wardrobe malfunction or even having to work for Donald T. Sterling. No, it’s lice. Because tonight’s draft, like most, likely will require a significant amount of re-gifting when it comes to the hats handed to first-round picks by Commissioner David Stern, especially with the…

  20. Rockets owner "very confident" Yao Ming returns next season

    Jun 24, 2010, 9:13 AM EDT

    Yao Ming wants to be back. During the time of year virtually every other NBA player has his feet up relaxing, taking some time off from the grind, he is at the Rockets facility daily busting it on the court. Rockets owner Leslie Alexander watched him work out then told Jonathan Feigen he was “very…
