  1. Are the Bulls now the leaders in the LeBron sweepstakes?

    Jun 25, 2010, 9:51 AM EDT

    There are a lot of jittery Cleveland Cavaliers fans right now. And not just because they had four cups at the Cleveland Coffee Company. Clevelanders woke up this morning to a new landscape. Yesterday morning they were still the most logical place for LeBron James to play — they had shown him a serious commitment…

  2. What NBA Draft night meant for five teams

    Jun 25, 2010, 9:32 AM EDT

    We just finished a season. The confetti is still stuck to Laker fans’ shoes. But one of the best things about the NBA is that immediately the slate is wiped clean and the season begins anew with the draft. And more so than any other sport, draft night can define your franchise. Even if you…

  3. Grading the NBA Draft

    Jun 25, 2010, 8:19 AM EDT

    The exercise of grading a draft the moments after it happens are a bit of mental masturbation, fun but ultimately pointless. But I’m all about ultimately pointless. (Not the other thing, I’m a married man. For shame.) So I graded the draft last night for NBCSports.com. Bottom line, loved what the Spurs did, thought Oklahoma…

  4. Rasheed Wallace to retire, the world is now a little more gray

    Jun 25, 2010, 3:47 AM EDT

    The NBA just got a little less interesting. There was nobody in the league like Rasheed Wallace, and he has decided to walk away, according to David Aldridge writing for NBA.com. He battled through an injury plagued season and although he was owed nearly $13 million over the next two seasons he decided he didn’t…

  5. NBA draft: Sam Presti refuses to let the Thunder fade to the background, moves up to grab Cole Aldrich

    Jun 24, 2010, 11:00 PM EDT

    Sam Presti doesn’t just wait by the phone. He had antennae implanted in his brain years ago, for convenient and instantaneous connections to each and every GM in the league. Every time the draft broadcast goes 5 minutes without mentioning the Thunder or showing Kevin Durant, he makes a brain call and a subsequent move.…

  6. NBA Draft: PBT's post of picks, starting off on the Wall

    Jun 24, 2010, 8:18 PM EDT

    This is it, the NBA Draft post o’ picks. This is the place where you find out who picks Wall and Turner and Favors and this those European centers who shoot threes that always are taken late in the second round. As each pick goes down, we’ll have it up in seconds and with a…

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

  15. 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…

  16. 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…

  17. 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…

  18. 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…

  19. 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…

  20. 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,…
