  1. How this time of year works: Cavaliers working out 40 guys to pick camp invitees

    Aug 28, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    Josh Childress, Draymond Green

    This is how it is around the NBA right now: Some teams still have a roster space or two available, others do not, and there is a cluster of pretty talented players trying to get those spots. Even just the spots that are an invite to a training camp where they stand little to no…

    nba-2k14

    It looks good. This is the new trailer for NBA 2K14, which starts out with a heavy dose of LeBron James — and remember he helped select the music for this edition, too. So we start out with some Nas “Hate Me Now” which is a pretty LeBron song. This edition of the game is…

    Babbitt shoots over Fournier during NBA basketball game in Portland, Oregon

    Luke Babbitt shot up draft boards back in 2010, all the way to No. 16, where he was taken by Minnesota and traded to Portland as part of the Martell Webster deal. He was a 6’9” guy who impressed in workouts and at the Draft Combine with his scoring touch, both from inside and out.…

    If you’re at all into the latest basketball shoe designs, then you may have seen some photos of Nike’s next signature shoe for LeBron James, the LeBron 11, popping up on some of the more popular sneaker sites.

  5. Heat’s Spoelstra talked to Seattle Seahawks about winning

    Aug 28, 2013, 1:06 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat - Game Four

    The Seattle Seahawks are NFL title contenders. That is a strange sentence to type, but it’s true. ProFootballTalk has them fourth in its preseason power rankings and they were probably the hottest team in football at the end of last season. So how do you get a team over the top? Ask someone who got…

  6. Apparently Mike Miller does Zumba during offseason

    Aug 28, 2013, 12:47 PM EDT

    Mike Miller

    As Mike Miller seems to get injured trying to walk out to his car each morning, the less contact and the more aerobic exercize he can do during the summer, the better. Like Zumba Sentao (a spin-off of traditional Zumba… I guess. I don’t care enough to look it up.) The video above shows the…

    Tracy McGrady is retiring from the NBA, and he went to twitter to thank his fans from the three cities that were the biggest parts of his career — Toronto, Orlando and Houston — with specially made posters. He also thanked the person behind the posters. Thank you @HarrisDesign1 for the assist with my design…

  8. Video proof Rudy Gay is working out with Olajuwon

    Aug 28, 2013, 11:46 AM EDT

    Rudy Gay

    Yes, the video is more grainy than the Zapruder Film, but some people see that as proof so we’re going to take that Instagram video as proof. Raptors wing Rudy Gay is in Houston this week working out with Hakeem Olajuwon, as you can see above. This is a good thing, Raptors fans. Gay getting…

  9. Brooklyn Nets taking training camp to Duke campus

    Aug 28, 2013, 11:17 AM EDT

    Duke University Rape Investigation Continues

    Well, Durham is much greener` than Brooklyn this time of year. No team may have more eyes on them this preseason than the Brooklyn Nets, who went out this summer with a “luxury tax be damned” attitude and added Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Jason Terry and Andrei Kirilenko to a roster that already had 49…

  10. Timberwolves want Rubio to become better shooter, scorer

    Aug 28, 2013, 10:33 AM EDT

    Ricky Rubio

    Ricky Rubio can pass, that was never in question. He’s a good floor general and he sees the court and sets guys up brilliantly. But his shooting needs work. Last season he struggled to finish on the attack shooting 41.4 percent inside eight feet, plus he shot 34.6 percent from the midrange. He took the…

    The New York Knicks are looking for a little depth along the front line, but at this point in free agency the pickings get slim. Jeremy Tyler is going to get a look after playing with the Knicks Summer League team and averaging 12.8 points and 6.4 rebounds a game. However, the Knicks want a more…

  12. Report: Timberwolves to hire Wizards’ Milt Newton to be GM

    Aug 28, 2013, 8:58 AM EDT

    Milt Newton

    Flip Saunders, the guy calling the shots in Minnesota, has been looking to hire a general manager. Saunders wanted somebody to do the day-to-day GM work (scouting, dealing with agents who call) and provide another voice on team issues. Apparently he found his guy in the Wizards front office, reports Darren Wolfson of ESPN 1500…

    If there one game that defined Tracy McGrady the unstoppable scoring machine, it was this one. Most of the time down 12 with under a minute the losing team folds, the winning team dribbles it out and we all go home. But McGrady didn’t let up and hit four three pointers (one that was a…

  14. Charles Barkley doesn’t believe in analytics, uses current Rockets team as his primary example

    Aug 28, 2013, 12:19 AM EDT

    Newly signed Houston Rockets player Dwight Howard during news conference in Houston

    Charles Barkley is good at his job of being an NBA analyst for TNT primarily because of the lack of filter he has when giving us his thoughts. He’s paid to have strong, sometimes silly opinions. But unlike other television personalities, Barkley isn’t engaging in any kind of schtick — he’s telling us what he…

  15. Tracy McGrady discusses his Hall of Fame merits (VIDEO)

    Image (1) NBA_mcgrady-thumb-250x185-5575.jpg for post 78

    We broke down the case for Tracy McGrady making the Hall of Fame, and we believe he gets in, although it may take him a couple of tries. McGrady joined CSN Houston and argued that his numbers should help him qualify, but overall he seems content with the career that he had, and is staying…

  16. Roy Hibbert has bulked up to be more of a physical presence

    Aug 27, 2013, 9:26 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game Seven

    Roy Hibbert’s size and physicality in the paint was a key reason the Pacers came within a game of the NBA Finals — for all the things LeBron James and Dwyane Wade can figure out, Hibbert protecting the rim isn’t one of them. So next year Hibbert is coming back bigger and stronger. Hibbert,at 7’2″…

  17. Pippen won’t face criminal charges for altercation outside Malibu restaurant

    Aug 27, 2013, 8:19 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Three

    Scottie Pippen won’t be facing criminal charges for his role in an altercation with a man outside a Malibu restaurant back in June, according to multiple reports. The details were allegedly ugly from Pippen’s perspective, and it sounds as though he might have been the actual victim here. That’s especially true after hearing the results…

    Atlanta Hawks v Indiana Pacers - Game One

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points more than pundits love mock outrage over Miley Cyrus (you know, if you don’t…

  19. Suns’ Dragic says Eric Bledsoe is “mini-LeBron James”

    Aug 27, 2013, 6:21 PM EDT

    Eric Bledsoe, Jerryd Bayless

    I’m as big a fan of Eric Bledsoe as the next guy, but… The Suns acquired Bledsoe to be part of their rebuilding going forward, but this season they are planning to start him and Goran Dragic for stretches together. Phoenix wants to run so you can call this “going small” but you can bet…

    Pau Gasol is one of the few NBA players who might be just as closely associated with his national team as he is with playing for one of the league’s most iconic franchises. Gasol has been playing for the Spanish team in international play essentially since the moment he was eligible, and along with tennis…
