  1. Byron Scott will not be your next Sixers coach

    May 7, 2010, 10:06 AM EDT

    While the coaching carousel is just starting to spin for this summer, the list of guys getting interview has become pretty standardized. Tom Thibodeau, Dwane Casey, Doug Collins, Mark Jackson, Byron Scott — these guys all get calls. Except in Philadelphia, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. The 76ers do not plan to contact Byron Scott…

  2. Hornets are not waiting in coaching search

    May 7, 2010, 9:39 AM EDT

    There are a lot of teams looking for a head coach for next season, and most are taking their time. Chicago Bulls staff said as much, while the Los Angeles Clippers have been stone silent. Not the New Orleans Hornets. They are on it. Five interviews in three days, including two more on Thursday, according…

  3. Josh Childress expected to return to Hawks next season

    May 7, 2010, 9:04 AM EDT

    While his former teammates struggle to find a way to deal with Dwight Howard, Vince Carter and the rest of the Orlando Magic, Josh Childress is basking in the limelight in Paris. His team, Olympiacos, is in the EuroLeague Final Four taking place this weekend in the city of lights. He is a key part…

  4. Bucks start talks with Salmons agent, will keep Delfino

    May 7, 2010, 8:30 AM EDT

    The Bucks are just trying to keep the band together. They liked the way last season ended. Well, except for that Andrew Bogut injury thing. But they were one of the hottest teams going to last month of the season and even without Bogut they pushed the Hawks to seven games.  Next season Brandon Jennings…

  5. NBA Playoffs, Magic Hawks Game 2: Magic overpower Hawks in second half to take 2-0 lead

    May 7, 2010, 2:12 AM EDT

    Surprisingly enough, the Atlanta Hawks were competitive for much of game two. They were able to move the ball while limiting mistakes, actually managed to get to the rim and the line with some consistency, and scored almost 100 points against the Magic’s defense. They made six of their 11 three-point attempts. They shot 97% on their…

  6. Owning an NBA Franchise no longer a license to print money.

    May 6, 2010, 11:54 PM EDT

    here was a time when owning and NBA franchise (or really most professional sports franchise) was seen as a can’t-miss proposition. For a couple decades starting in 1980, the expansion of ways to make money on sports (fueled by the rise of cable television, new stadiums with luxury boxes and a society more accepting of…

  7. NBA Playoffs: Hawks look to bounce back in game two

    May 6, 2010, 6:27 PM EDT

    Like the Bobcats before them, the Hawks couldn’t do anything against the defense of the Orlando Magic in game one. The Hawks were a top-five team in offensive efficiency in the regular season, but that number was more the product of a low turnover rate and high offensive rebound rate than it was the product…

  8. Bucks GM talks about patchwork approach

    May 6, 2010, 6:26 PM EDT

    There was not a whole lot of consistency in the Milwaukee Bucks’ rotation this season. In fact, Andrew Bogut, Brandon Jennings, and Carlos Delfino were the only players to play more than 50% of the time for the Bucks this year. The rest of the rotation was filled out with role players (Luc Richard Mbah…

  9. David Lee would like to stay in New York, but really would like to get paid

    May 6, 2010, 5:55 PM EDT

    Donnie Walsh has done a good job cleaning up the dung pile — and an expensive one at that — of a roster he was left with. New York is not a city renowned for patience, but it was warranted in this case as there was a lot of shoveling to do. Fans understood that.…

  10. NBA Playoffs, Lakers Jazz Game 3: Andrei Kirilenko says he is ready to play

    May 6, 2010, 5:18 PM EDT

    The Jazz are desperate for some size and another weapon to confront the Los Angles Lakers — and for Game 3 they will have one. An AK-47. Andrei Kirilenko said Thursday that he will be ready to go on Saturday, as reported by the fantastic Ross Siler in the Salt Lake Tribune. “I’m good, I’m…

  11. One time super agent David Falk lands a big one — Evan Turner

    May 6, 2010, 4:12 PM EDT

    Back in the 1990s, David Falk was the man. He was Michael Jordan’s agent, and everyone wanted to be like Mike. Patrick Ewing, Alonzo Mourning, it seemed everyone was a Falk client (he had more than 40). He was in the middle of the 1995 lockout trying to decertify the players union. His fingerprints were…

  12. Nobody is healthy, everybody going to play in Cavaliers/Celtics Game 3

    May 6, 2010, 3:51 PM EDT

    LeBron James’ elbow. Kevin Garnett’s foot. Anderson Varejao’s back. Kendrick Perkins knee. Four injuries, one report: They practiced today and are all expected to play on Friday night in the big game three between Boston and Cleveland. See, that wasn’t so hard. Brian Windhorst handled the whole thing on twitter. If this were the regular…

  13. Kevin Durant joins the big time, named to All-NBA First Team

    May 6, 2010, 2:43 PM EDT

    This season at a Clippers/Thunder game, my media row seat was next to two advanced scouts checking out the Thunder for upcoming games for their teams. Three times during the game, Kevin Durant did something that had these scouts — jaded guys who have seen more basketball than you and I ever will — look…

  14. Man wrongly imprisoned for 29 years to sit courtside for Cavaliers/Celtics Game 5

    May 6, 2010, 1:54 PM EDT

    I can’t imagine what it would be like. I doubt, — no, I know I couldn’t handle spending 29 years in prison for a crime I didn’t commit with the grace that Ray Towler did. He was happy upon his release. He was accused of a heinous crime (raping a 12- and 13-year-old) only to…

  15. Jeff Van Gundy: What's so wrong about a serious head coach?

    May 6, 2010, 1:23 PM EDT

    “We need a guy who can relate to today’s player.” You here variants of that sentence in so many coaching searches, teams looking for a guy who can relate to, joke around with and get through to players that way. Jeff Van Gundy wants to know why? In talking about why Boston assistant coach Tom…

  16. Danny Ainge fined $25,000 for tossing the towel

    May 6, 2010, 12:42 PM EDT

    Celtics General Manager Danny Ainge got caught up in the heat of the moment and forgot that at the NBA League Office, this is fining season. Ainge has been fined $25,000 by the league for throwing a town in the air to distract the Cavalier’s JJ Hickson at the free throw line during the Celtics…

  17. Amare Stoudemire earning some extra offseason cash

    May 6, 2010, 12:21 PM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire is a force of nature, and when Steve Nash is feeding him passes on the pick-and-roll he is an unstoppable one. That combo, that play is the most pure thing in the NBA right now. Now is the time to look like a force of nature, what with Stoudemire able to — and…

  18. Celtics benched Nate Robinson, saved themselves a cool $2 million

    May 6, 2010, 11:54 AM EDT

    Nate Robinson came over to the Celtics with some hype bordering on the delusional — this was going to be the guy to change the Boston bench, provide that much-needed scoring punch, change the dynamics. The reality is that Nate Robinson was Nate Robinson — he scores a lot some days but he shoots a…

  19. Dallas learning from playoffs: Cuban says Beaubois could start next year

    May 6, 2010, 11:10 AM EDT

    Rodrigue Beaubois is a little ball of energy. When he was on the court the energy of the Dallas Mavericks changed — they attacked with penetration. Their tempo increased. They broke down defenses. And it was all done with a little flair. Then throughout the playoffs, Beaubois sat. And sat. And when he got his…

  20. Mark Jackson now being picky about NBA coaching gig he wants

    May 6, 2010, 10:22 AM EDT

    Mark Jackson wants a team to take a leap of faith on him, to pluck him out of the broadcasting booth and with no coaching experience put him at the head of an NBA bench. Well, he doesn’t want just any team to take that leap, it turns out. Not Philadelphia, as the Philadelphia Inquirer…
