    Sep 30, 2013, 1:58 PM EDT

    Tyreke Evans

    It’s a stunning development — we have actual on-the-court basketball news out of NBA media day. It may be a first in a day usually reserved for positive stories and fluff. Pelicans coach Monty Williams said he plans to bring Tyreke Evans in off the bench as a sixth man, at least initially. That according…

  2. Dwyane Wade says don’t put LeBron’s decision on his shoulders. Or knees.

    Sep 30, 2013, 1:23 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Miami Heat

    It will be one of the two big storylines that follow the Heat all season (along with can they three-peat): Will LeBron James bolt next summer for a new team? He can and almost certainly will opt out of his contract at the end of this season, seeking the security of a longer deal (the…

  3. DeAndre Jordan randomly smells woman in store, wins at Vine

    Sep 30, 2013, 12:49 PM EDT

    "Call Of Duty:Ghosts" Multiplayer Global Reveal

    What kind of winning DeAndre Jordan does on the court this season remains to be seen. The Clippers are a very good team on paper but to make themselves contenders on the court it’s going to come down to Jordan (and Blake Griffin) being a defensive front line force, and Jordan staying on the court…

  4. Knicks pick up Mike Woodson’s option for 2014-15 season

    Sep 30, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Mike Woodson, Carmelo Anthony

    When surprising word came down last week that Glen Grunwald was out and Steve Mills was in as president and general manager of the Knicks, one of the first questions was what does this mean for the future of coach Mike Woodson? Grunwald and Woodson were college teammates and friends. New GMs like their own…

  5. Underground Kings no more, Raptors bring in Drake to help rebrand franchise

    Sep 30, 2013, 12:04 PM EDT

    Drake

    When the Nets moved to Brooklyn and were looking to rebrand the franchise — new logo, new look, new attitude — and let’s be honest, the white guys in Brooks Brothers suits are not the best at knowing what the common fan wants. So the Nets turned to rapper Jay Z, who owned a sliver…

    We told you this was coming last week but now NBA’s commissioner in waiting Adam Silver and the league have made it official: Toronto will host the 2016 NBA All-Star Game.

  7. As Heat open camp, Greg Oden still taking it slow

    Sep 30, 2013, 10:49 AM EDT

    Greg Oden

    At age 21, Greg Oden was the kind of big man NBA teams are clamoring four now — a beast on the boards and protecting the rim who also could get you a fair amount of points. At age 25, he has barely set foot on the court since then. He’s had three microfacture and…

  8. Despite security concerns in the region, Thunder still traveling to Turkey for preseason games

    On Sept. 6, the United States State Department issued a travel advisory for Turkey due potential unrest in the region.

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 7

    Last season: The Heat won their second straight championship in an epic seven-game battle against a Spurs team that had every chance to take home the title instead. On their way, Miami flirted with history by stringing together a 27-game winning streak that lasted late into March, and finished the season by winning an incredible…

    When last we heard from Channing Frye he said he had been cleared by doctors to return to basketball after missing all of last season due to an enlarged heart (it was caused by a virus but could be cured by rest). With the Suns about to open training camp Frye took to twitter this…

  11. Rudy Gay isn’t worried about role as fault line between old school, advanced stats

    Sep 30, 2013, 1:57 AM EDT

    Rudy Gay

    What you think about Rudy Gay says a lot about how you view the NBA game. If you come from the old school you see a guy who can create his own shot off the dribble, is athletic and gets you 18 points and 6 rebounds a night. You probably see him as a high…

    Both the Lakers and the Rockets have opened their training camps for the upcoming season, which means the summer’s drama involving Dwight Howard and his free agent decision is now officially behind us.

    Newly-acquired Philadelphia 76ers player Bynum smiles during a news conference at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia

    When the Sixers traded for Andrew Bynum before the beginning of last season, it appeared to be a calculated risk worth taking at the time. Bynum was coming off of an All-Star season where he averaged a career-best 18.7 points and 11.8 rebounds, and despite his history of injury, the team wasn’t going anywhere with…

    New York Knicks forward Amare Stoudemire waits to take a foul shot against the New Orleans Hornets in the second half of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    Amar’e Stoudemire appeared in just 29 games for the Knicks a season ago due to undergoing two separate procedures on his knees. It was thought that a summer with minimal basketball activity might have him rested and ready to play a bigger role, but now comes word that Stoudemire had surgery one more time back in…

    Sep 29, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game Two

    Eric Maynor spent most of his last four seasons in the NBA in Oklahoma City, where he was the backup point guard to the blur that is Russell Westbrook. This summer he is in Washington D.C., where he signed with the Wizards and is the backup point guard to the blur that is John Wall.…

  16. Report: NBA likely returns to 2-2-1-1-1 format for Finals

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 7

    If you’ve never been around an NBA Finals series, know that it is a traveling circus, a logistical nightmare. The number of media runs well into triple digits at every game, there are television cameras everywhere you turn, there are fan events all over town and the demands on players’ time can get oppressive. It’s…

  17. Doc Rivers admits he ‘didn’t want to go through a rebuild’ with Celtics

    Sep 29, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    Doc Rivers

    The separation between Doc Rivers and the Celtics was anything but a clean break. The back-and-forth about an on-again, off-again deal that would land Boston some compensation for letting him out of his contract to join the Clippers dragged on publicly for far too long, before Rivers eventually landed in Los Angeles, albeit with sore…

  18. Kevin Durant’s top 10 plays of 2012-13 season (VIDEO)

    Sep 29, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game One

    Kevin Durant turned 25 years old on Sunday, and it’s hard to believe he’s entering his seventh NBA season. This mix of his top plays from last year is absolutely ridiculous — from the handles, to the dunks, to the acrobatic finishes and long-range shooting, it’s possible we’ve never seen a player who possesses Durant’s…

    Utah Jazz v Dallas Mavericks

    As Tyrone Corbin enters his fourth season as head coach of the Jazz, a layer of uncertainty lies underneath an already challenging situation. Utah is in a full-fledged rebuild, meaning that the job Corbin does won’t be able to be properly judged by wins and losses given the collection of young talent in place on…

    Sep 29, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat - Game Four

    The leadership in NBA front offices can often make questionable decisions that are tough to understand by those on the outside. But choosing to extend the contract of a young head coach that has led your franchise to back-to-back titles is about as easy as it gets. From Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports: Two-time NBA…
