  1. Shabazz Muhammad doesn’t get green-room invite, but gets his handshake

    Jun 28, 2013, 3:23 AM EDT

    2013 NBA Draft

    NEW YORK – Shabazz Muhammad was once viewed as a potential No. 1 pick. Midway through his freshman year, not only did that possibility remain, it seemed he had also raised his floor to being a top-five pick. But Muhammad’s fortunes, both personally and professionally, turned quickly. His 3-point shot betrayed him. His stated age…

  2. Three winners, three losers from NBA Draft. You bet Anthony Bennett is a winner.

    Jun 28, 2013, 3:04 AM EDT

    Anthony Bennett from UNLV reacts after being selected by the Clevland Cavaliers as the first overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft in Brooklyn

    I will admit this up front: declaring a winner in the NBA draft the night of the draft is premature. We can accurately say tonight that Indiana was a winner in the 2010 draft (Paul George at No. 10, Lance Stephenson at No. 40), but we don’t know how this draft will ultimately play out.…

  3. Kevin Garnett agrees to deal that will send him and Paul Pierce to the Nets

    Jun 28, 2013, 2:13 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Philadelphia 76ers - Game Three

    When the initial shock wore off after hearing the beginnings of a deal between the Celtics and Nets that would land both Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce in Brooklyn, the one thing that could prevent it all from happening immediately came into focus. Garnett is one of a very few players in the league with…

  4. Nets draft player who hopes to play as well as his coach does

    Jun 28, 2013, 2:00 AM EDT

    2013 NBA Draft

    NEW YORK – Jason Kidd is one of the NBA’s all-time greatest point guards, but he retired for a reason. At 40, he could no longer keep up with the game’s younger players. That’s no knock on Kidd. it’s just what happens to nearly every player at that age. Simply, Kidd is no longer an…

  5. Wizards draft Georgetown’s Porter. At least we got that right

    Jun 28, 2013, 1:51 AM EDT

    2013 NBA Draft

    WASHINGTON D.C. — In the most unpredictable of NBA Drafts, the Washington Wizards went with a player everyone assumed they were taking all along. The long-rumored marriage between the John Wall–Bradley Beal fueled Wizards and Georgetown small forward Otto Porter Jr. became official when NBA commissioner David Stern announced the third overall pick. Seemingly every…

  6. Nerlens Noel and Michael Carter-Williams team back up with 76ers

    Nerlens Noel, Michael Carter-Williams, C.J. McCollum

    NEW YORK – Michael Carter-Williams and Nerlens Noel have know each other a long time. A very long time. “I knew him before the flat top,” Carter-Williams said. “We’ll say that.” Now, the former AAU teammates with BABC in Boston, are teammates with the 76ers. “It’s like a dream come true,” Carter-Williams said. “We always…

  7. Report: Grizzlies trade Darrell Arthur to Nuggets for Kosta Koufos

    Jun 27, 2013, 11:26 PM EDT

    Kosta Koufos

    One of the reasons (and there were several) that the Nuggets cited when parting ways with head coach George Karl was the fact that they were upset that Karl stubbornly started Kosta Koufos over a player who needed development in JaVale McGee. That won’t be a problem for new coach Brian Shaw, since Denver has…

  8. Report: Garnett signs off on trade that would send him, Pierce to Brooklyn

    Jun 27, 2013, 10:56 PM EDT

    Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett

    UPDATE #2 10:56 PM: Kevin Garnett will agree to waive his no-trade clause, clearing a major hurdle for the deal, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. That makes this deal far more likely. It is not finalized yet, and can’t be officially executed until July 10, but the teams are working to get the…

    2013 NBA Draft

    NEW YORK – Victor Oladipo’s incredible rise, from a high school backup to the No. 2 pick in the NBA Draft, has come with a complicated relationship with his father in the backdrop. Tonight, the father – who rarely, if at all, attended his son’s DeMatha High School games – came to the forefront. “I…

    Bennett from the UNLV shakes hands with NBA Commissioner Stern after being selected by the Cavaliers as the first overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft in Brooklyn

    NEW YORK – Anthony Bennett began shaking his head side to side just as a reporter began a question about whether Bennett saw any signs of becoming the No. 1 pick. The question was the only thing Bennett – and the rest of us – saw coming tonight. Against all odds, the Cavaliers passed on…

    2013 NBA Draft

    Noel from the University of Kentucky shakes hands with NBA Commissioner Stern after being selected by the Pelicans as the sixth overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft in Brooklyn

    We have our first trade of the 2013 draft, and it involves some fairly big names. The New Orleans Pelicans selected Nerlens Noel with the sixth overall pick, but he won’t be playing alongside Anthony Davis on the front line next season. They picked him for the Philadelphia 76ers, who will send All-Star point guard…

  14. Shocker: Cavs take Anthony Bennett with the No. 1 pick in the 2013 NBA Draft

    Jun 27, 2013, 7:52 PM EDT

    Anthony Bennett

    Literally nobody saw this coming. The Cleveland Cavaliers have selected UNLV’s Anthony Bennett with the number one pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, and it comes as a huge surprise. Most mock drafts had Nerlens Noel at the top of the board in the weeks leading up to the draft, and Alex Len began to…

  15. NBA Draft rumors roundup: Len or Noel No. 1; Nets/Celtics talk deal

    Jun 27, 2013, 6:25 PM EDT

    Marshall v Kentucky

    On the day of the NBA Draft rumors fly fast and furious — a lot of it fueled by agents trying to create false demand for their clients (hoping other teams pick them even higher), some fueled by teams throwing out smokescreens. Every once in a while there is a kernel of truth. So take…

  16. SI’s Chris Mannix takes look at NBA Draft’s most undervalued

    Jun 27, 2013, 6:00 PM EDT

    Shabazz Muhammad

    Some interesting thoughts here from Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated and the NBC Sports Network, talking about the guys he thinks are most undervalued in this draft. I can see Bucknell’s Mike Muscala, who might be more of a stretch four in the NBA but has skills and polish. He likes Ricky Ledo and so do a…

  17. Carmelo Anthony says injured shoulder feeling better, won’t need surgery

    Jun 27, 2013, 5:24 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v New York Knicks - Game Five

    Carmelo Anthony guided the Knicks into the second round of the playoffs, and did so with an injured left shoulder. The injury, which bothered Anthony but didn’t cause him to miss time, occurred on a play where he got tangled up with Kevin Garnett during Game 5 of the Knicks’ first round playoff series against…

  18. Joakim Noah did not like seeing Miami winning another ring

    Jun 27, 2013, 4:19 PM EDT

    Heat's James drives past Bulls' Joakim Noah during the fourth quarter in Game 5 of their NBA Eastern Conference semi-final basketball playoff in Miam

    Joakim Noah does not like the Miami Heat. It shows in his play against them. In a sports world where these guys all know each other and are buddies off the court, it’s a throwback to have someone who just can’t stand the other jerseys. Which means he didn’t really enjoy how the NBA Finals…

  19. Pat Riley says don’t expect big changes in Heat roster

    Jun 27, 2013, 3:46 PM EDT

    Miami Heat President Riley reacts after he was introduced during a celebration at the American Airlines Arena after the Heat's NBA Basketball Championship parade in Miami

    Yes, there are questions about Dwyane Wade and if his game is in decline (and how fast he is going down that hill). Yes, there are questions about Chris Bosh’s role within the offense and his value to the team, particularly relative to the big checks he cashes. But don’t think the Pat Riley is…

  20. Report: Bucks let teams know Brandon Jennings available in trade

    Jun 27, 2013, 2:57 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Dallas Mavericks

    It’s time for the Bucks to make a decision on Brandon Jennings — do they offer him a contract extension (he thinks he deserves the max, he thinks he’s better than he is), or do you let another team come in and set the price for the restricted free agent then decide if you want…
