  1. Pacers next team in the clearance aisle

    Mar 19, 2010, 3:58 PM EDT

    Michael K. Ozanian of Forbes is reporting that the Indiana Pacers owner Herb Simon will receive and offer for $230 million or less in the next two months. While Simon will still make a killing on the investment after purchasing the team for $10 million back in ’83, when you look at the standard rate…

  2. Wizards sign Livingston through end of the season

    Mar 19, 2010, 3:21 PM EDT

    The Wizards have like what they have seen from Shaun Livingston, enough that they are keeping him around through the end of the season. ESPN’s Marc Stein broke the news on twitter, although it was not a big surprise to anyone. It’s a good step forward for one of the hardest comeback stories around. Hopefully…

  3. P.J. Carlesimo may head back to college

    Mar 19, 2010, 3:15 PM EDT

    P.J. Carlesimo has been brushing off interest from colleges for years, saying he wanted to stay in the NBA and get a head-coaching job there. Despite that, his name came up as a front-runner for the Oregon head-coaching job even before Ernie Kent was fired. Well, now Kent has been fired. And according to Adrian…

  4. Dorell Wright does it all

    Mar 19, 2010, 1:46 PM EDT

    You can admit it, you didn’t watch much of the Magic vs. Heat matchup because you were watching Washington and Marquette. We forgive you. But you really should see the hustle play by Dorell Wright. Then watch it again.

  5. Players Association taking their sweet time

    Mar 19, 2010, 1:24 PM EDT

    The owners made the first move, put the first offer of a new Collective Bargaining Agreement on the table — a radically different and lopsided offer, but an offer. They want to negotiate now. In this economy. When they are losing boatloads of money. When they have leverage. Salary cap guru Larry Coon of the…

  6. D-League standout standing out for the Wiz

    Mar 19, 2010, 12:59 PM EDT

    Alonzo Gee, who was tearing it up for the Austin Toros just over two weeks ago, is tearing it up for the Washington Wizards. As such, he’s earned his second 10-day contract from the Wiz, and could remain a fixture with the team beyond that if he continues to impress. Gee exemplifies what has been…

  7. Tyler cuts phase one of the 'amateur pro' experiment short

    Mar 19, 2010, 12:25 PM EDT

    Jeremy Tyler made history this season when he left his high school as a highly-touted senior prospect to play professionally in Europe. Now, he’s made history again by setting the record for the longest trip of shame back to the United States with his tail between his legs. Tyler has called it quits on playing…

  8. Boozer people talk to Jazz people

    Mar 19, 2010, 12:09 PM EDT

    If history has taught us one thing, it is that we will not know where Carlos Boozer is going to play basketball next year until he actually signs a contract. And the league approves it. And even then it’s like 95 percent he plays there the next year. Boozer’s current team — the Utah Jazz…

  9. Jackson to renew his tour for a coaching gig this summer

    Mar 19, 2010, 11:34 AM EDT

    Mark Jackson still wants to make the jump from NBA broadcaster to NBA coach, and in the long and proud tradition of former players finding jobs with clipboards somewhere in the L, he’ll likely get it. The rumored candidates for his services, per Ken Berger of CBS Sports, are the Nets and the Clippers: One…

  10. Jordan open to changing Bobcats' name

    Mar 19, 2010, 11:29 AM EDT

    Bobcats is a dirty word. Well, it is in Charlotte. Some people there really hate the name — they think former owner Bob Johnson named the Charlotte franchise after himself. And they can’t stand him. So it’s not a shock that new owner Michael Jordan was asked at his first press conference if he would…

  11. Howard moves one step closer to suspension

    Mar 19, 2010, 11:05 AM EDT

    Last night, Dwight Howard picked up a technical foul with the Magic nursing a two-point lead in overtime against the Heat. Not good. Orlando lived, because the Magic are a better team with better chemistry and more depth. That one point the Heat gained off of the technical free throw bore only fleeting significance, as…

  12. Villanova's Wright considered for NBA gig

    Mar 19, 2010, 10:40 AM EDT

    After the way Villanova needed to come from behind to force overtime against 15-seed Robert Morris, and then barely escaped with a win, you can see why NBA teams are hot for Wildcat’s coach Jay Wright. But that’s the rumor — and if you want rumors you go to Peter Vecsey and the New York…

  13. Lawson eyes return next week

    Mar 19, 2010, 10:32 AM EDT

    The Denver Nuggets are in an odd place. They’re championship contenders, but conditional ones; if they’re going to compete for a title, they need to be clicking and they need to be healthy. Kenyon Martin still has some more time on the shelf, but the Nuggets could take a big hop towards a full rotation…

  14. This week's rumor: LeBron wants Johnson on Knicks

    Mar 19, 2010, 10:03 AM EDT

    LeBron James is not going to be a New York Knick next season. There, I said it. Everybody knows it — if his legacy is about winning titles you don’t move to a roster that takes you a step back from that goal. But when did reality ever get in the way of some good…

  15. Pau Gasol has paparazzi?

    Mar 19, 2010, 9:36 AM EDT

    Getting the paparazzi to follow you around in Los Angeles is about as hard as attracting pigeons at a park with a loaf of bread. Pau Gasol — not exactly known as one of the beautiful people in Los Angeles — has the right bread now with a glamorous Spanish girlfriend. So the Spanish media…

  16. Pietrus out at least a week

    Mar 19, 2010, 9:07 AM EDT

    Just when you thought the Magic were starting to get healthy, the Fates decided they were not done with them yet. Mickael Pietrus went down Wednesday against the Spurs with a sprained ankle. He told the Orlando Sentinel he hopes to be back in a week, but that may be an overly optimistic player trying…

  17. It was very different for Hansbrough a year ago

    Mar 19, 2010, 8:54 AM EDT

    One year ago this week was the best time in Tyler Hansbrough’s life. He was sitting on top of the college basketball world, leading a North Carolina Tar Heel team that would go on to win the NCAA Championship. He was a legend, a guy who will be mentioned along with Jordan and Perkins in…

  18. Quote of the day

    Mar 19, 2010, 7:55 AM EDT

    “Charles will continue to say things to make himself relevant.” –Dwyane Wade, responding to TNT’s Craig Sager saying that Charles Barkley has referred to Wade’s Heat teammates as “Titos,” as in Tito Jackson, who backed up Michael Jackson.

  19. Baseline to Baseline, your game recaps

    Mar 19, 2010, 2:37 AM EDT

    What you missed while watching your bracket go up in smoke… Magic 108, Heat 102 (OT): If you were like roughly two-thirds of the people watching this game — flipping back and forth between it and the entertaining Washington/Marquette NCAA game — you felt lost. Each time you flipped back it felt like a new…

  20. Nate Robinson still does not like D'Antoni

    Mar 18, 2010, 11:50 PM EDT

    Mike D’Antoni had no use for Nate Robinson — the team has no point guard to speak of and he still benched Robinson for 14 games. Why? Robinson was not team enough, and acted the clown. D’Antoni had his reasons, but jerked Robinson around pretty good. Robinson felt Boston’s blowout of the Knicks Wednesday night…
