    Caron Butler

    The Suns landed Caron Butler as part of the three-team trade involving the Bucks and the Clippers that sent J.J. Redick and Jared Dudley to Los Angeles, along with Eric Bledsoe to Phoenix. It appears, however, that the player Milwaukee had its sights set on all along may have ended up with the Suns. Butler…

  2. Byron Mullens hopes to prove the doubters wrong with the Clippers

    Aug 28, 2013, 9:32 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Charlotte Bobcats

    Byron Mullens was one of the free agent signings made by the Clippers this offseason that was an attempt to hopefully boost their frontcourt depth. Once you get past Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan in the starting lineup, things begin to deteriorate rather quickly, with Mullens and Ryan Hollins the next bigs in off the…

    New Orleans Hornets v Los Angeles Lakers

    This was coming for a while. The Clippers first reached out to Antawn Jamison just a week into free agency, but it was a month later when new coach Doc Rivers sat down to talk with Jamison. And it was still a little more than three weeks until last night when the two sides reached…

    As you likely know by now, Wednesday was the 50th anniversary of the civil rights march on Washington D.C. that included Martin Luther King’s historic “I have a dream” speech.

    Aug 28, 2013, 5:34 PM EDT

    Gary Payton

    In the past year, just elected Hall of Famer Gary Payton has been working with John Wall. Outside the obvious reasons one might want to work with the best defensive guard of his generation, there was another reason Wall sought out Payton — both guys struggled at the start of their career. “First of all…

    Rasheed Wallace Pistons

    Who doesn’t love a good Rasheed Wallace story? SLAM did a Q&A with veteran Pistons guard Will Bynum, who will be back with the team when camp opens in five weeks. He talked about how smart Greg Monroe is, what a beast Andre Drummond is, and how they need to work to build chemistry with…

    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…

    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…

  13. 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…

    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…

    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…

  17. 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…

    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…
