  1. Jamison struggles in first game as Cav, but let's keep our heads

    Feb 19, 2010, 10:10 PM EDT

    Tonight will likely be the first and last time for the rest of his career that Antawn Jamison wishes he were still a Wizard. Jamison came off the bench for 18 minutes and shot 0-12 from the floor, scoring only two points and being blocked five times in the Cavs’ 110-93 loss to the Charlotte…

  2. Baseline to Baseline, your game recaps

    Feb 19, 2010, 9:41 PM EDT

    What happened Friday while you were debating Tiger’s human touch: Mavericks 95 Magic 85: And things were going so well for the Magic, too. Dwight Howard was beastin’-flat-out-beastin’ with 29 points, six rebounds, and five blocks. Those weren’t easy stats, either, as Brendan Haywood fits into this team like a glove. But Howard had the…

  3. Williams to start, Jamison to come off bench tonight

    Feb 19, 2010, 6:43 PM EDT

    Mo Williams returned from an injury and played 18 minutes for the Cleveland Cavaliers last night against the Denver Nuggets. According to Brian Windhorst, Williams will be inserted into the starting lineup tonight when the Cavaliers face the Charlotte Bobcats.  Williams is averaging 16.7 points and 5 assists per game this season, and is shooting…

  4. Most top teams paying luxury tax

    Feb 19, 2010, 6:24 PM EDT

    Tom Ziller of FanHouse has a breakdown of the 11 teams set to pay the NBA luxury tax this summer. The Lakers, Mavericks, Celtics, and Cavaliers are set to pay the highest penalties. The teams with the four best records in the Western Conference are all set to pay the luxury tax. In the East,…

  5. Ferry says Cavs have wanted Jamison for years

    Feb 19, 2010, 5:58 PM EDT

    The Cleveland Cavaliers were considered one of the big winners at the trade deadline, getting forward Antawn Jamison for Zydrunas Ilgauskas’ expiring contract and a first-round pick. If Ilgauskas ends up getting bought out and returning to Cleveland, Ferry will have made yet another trade where he secured a major asset without giving up much…

  6. Jazz, Williams ticked about trade

    Feb 19, 2010, 5:28 PM EDT

    At a time when other Western Conference powers were adding pieces (Dallas) or at least standing pat (Lakers), the Utah Jazz were giving away a key rotation player to save money. And that did not sit well with Deron Williams or the other Jazz players. “I think if we’d make a trade it would be…

  7. Kevin Martin has love letter for Sacramento

    Feb 19, 2010, 3:59 PM EDT

    Kevin Martin feels like it was time to leave Sacramento, sort of in the same way someone heading off to college feels its time to get out of their parents house. And no, this does not mean I think Martin is moving back in to Sacramento in four years, you know, until he can get…

  8. More max-space slots than max-level players

    Feb 19, 2010, 2:58 PM EDT

    Someone is going to get very overpaid in this summer’s free agent market. Not LeBron James, Dwyane Wade or Chris Bosh — those are guys who deserve max contracts (which will be about $16 million the first year, depending on factors with the salary cap not yet determined). And they will have choices on where…

  9. McGrady says all the right things

    Feb 19, 2010, 2:02 PM EDT

    Oh, if Tracy McGrady could only still play as good a game as he can talk. Because when he met with the New York media for the first time today as a member of the Knicks, he was saying all the right things. “This is not the same Tracy from last season when I was…

  10. Ilgauskas eager to get out of Washington

    Feb 19, 2010, 1:10 PM EDT

    Cavaliers center Zydrunas Ilgauskas has spoken his mind on his trade from basketball nirvana in Cleveland to… well, the Wizards. And he’s not happy. He basically equates being with the Wizards with being in prison, and he wants his buyout/get-out-of-jail-free card soon. “Right now I’m a Wizard,” he said. “I think eventually they’ll let me…

  11. Oh, how the mighty Pistons GM has fallen

    Feb 19, 2010, 12:50 PM EDT

    Once upon a time, Joe Dumars was among the most heralded managers in the league. He had constructed a contender from the ground up based on teamwork and defense, provided the fire that birthed Ben Wallace’s career, took a chance on an inconsistent, journeyman point guard named Chauncey Billups, and had made stockpiling role players…

  12. Ron Artest trying to lose weight

    Feb 19, 2010, 11:58 AM EDT

    On a breakaway dunk against the Celtics, Ron Artest got as much elevation as I have seen him have since he came to Los Angeles. Nobody is ever going to confuse him with Josh Smith or Vince Carter circa 2002, but with foot problems this season Artest’s vertical had gotten to the point one wondered…

  13. Houston's move that wasn't

    Feb 19, 2010, 11:46 AM EDT

    The Rockets had a busy trade deadline, and will welcome Kevin Martin, Jared Jeffries, Jordan Hill, and Hilton Armstrong to the team this weekend. But Houston GM Daryl Morey could have had his fingerprints all over another blockbuster deal, though this time in an out-of-the-blue attempt to land some star-power. From ESPN.com’s Marc Stein and…

  14. Carl Landry was a deal-breaker for Kings

    Feb 19, 2010, 11:26 AM EDT

    Following the flurry of activity that took place at yesterday’s trade deadline, it’s inevitable that we dissect where each team went wrong, declare some the “big winners,” and reminisce over what could have been as we pore over the details of trades big and small. What if Miami really had traded for Carlos Boozer? What…

  15. Desperate times call for desperate Nets

    Feb 19, 2010, 11:15 AM EDT

    The Nets are, well, you know. BAD. And in these tough economic times, for a fanbase that’s never been exactly astounding in attendance even in the best of times, the Nets have been forced to resort to… unorthodox methods for boosting attention for the team. First they’ve managed to get minority owner Jay-Z (or as…

  16. Doc Rivers = funny guy

    Feb 19, 2010, 9:54 AM EDT

    Trade rumors are swirling around the Celtics Thursday morning. Ray Allen’s name was coming up in big trades. Other Celtics were coming up in parts of other deals. While players will tell you they ignore this speculation, they don’t. They know what is going on, that their name is in play. Guys were talking about…

  17. Darko "distraught" over NBA career

    Feb 19, 2010, 9:33 AM EDT

    You have to give Darko Milicic this: At least he doesn’t like being a punch line. He was not happy about being traded from New York to Minnesota, and Timberwolves General Manager David Kahn had to do a little convincing to get the former second pick overall to come to Minneapolis. (Via TrueHoop.) “I don’t…

  18. Phil Jackson not worried about Jamison

    Feb 19, 2010, 8:58 AM EDT

    While most of the NBA shuddered at the idea of Antawn Jamison joining forces with LeBron James, the Lakers Phil Jackson does not seem that bothered. After refusing to answer questions about the Cavaliers moves near the trade deadline, he finally gave in after about the fourth version of the question before the Lakers took…

  19. Dwayne Schintzius fighting for life

    Feb 19, 2010, 8:34 AM EDT

    Dwayne Schintzius, the former Net and Celtic from the 1990s, is back in his native Florida battling for his life against leukemia. Schintzius, 41, had a bone marrow transplant about three weeks ago with marrow donated from his brother, Travis. At the time the prognosis seemed encouraging for the former Brandon High star… But his…

  20. Larry Hughes not joining Kings

    Feb 19, 2010, 8:21 AM EDT

    Larry Hughes got traded from New York to California, but he is not heading West anytime soon. Hughes had been out with a big toe injury and now has a fractured finger, but he is not going Kobe and trying to play through it. Rather he is staying on the East Coast to rehab and…
