  1. Lakers waive Andrew Goudelock

    Oct 27, 2012, 8:00 PM EDT

    Andrew Goudelock

    The Lakers waived Andrew Goudelock on Saturday, bringing the team’s roster down to the league-maximum of 15 players. Goudelock wasn’t expected to make the team with the offseason addition of starting point guard Steve Nash, and with Steve Blake and Chris Duhon firmly in place with guaranteed contracts, it wouldn’t have made sense from a…

  2. Injuries may force Knicks to turn to Rasheed Wallace

    Oct 27, 2012, 6:30 PM EDT

    rasheed wallace knicks

    When news broke that Amar’e Stoudemire might be out longer than expected with a left knee injury, Rasheed Wallace being drafted into action before he appears ready for it certainly was a possibility. With Stoudemire and Marcus Camby definitely out, and Tyson Chandler possibly out for opening night, the Knicks simply don’t have very many…

  3. Report: Raptors unlikely to offer contract extension to DeMar DeRozan

    Oct 27, 2012, 5:15 PM EDT

    Raptors forward DeMar DeRozan goes to the basket against Bucks forward Tobias Harris during their NBA basketball pre-season game in Toronto

    DeMar DeRozan is essentially in the same boat as James Harden. Not the one that will sail him into the max contract territory that Harden is pursuing with the Thunder of course, but DeRozan similarly has until Oct. 31 to work out a contract extension with his team, or else become a restricted free agent…

  4. Nike unveils Kevin Durant’s latest signature shoe, the KD V

    Oct 27, 2012, 4:00 PM EDT

    12-390_Nike_KDV_Upper_Detail-02_original

    Kevin Durant‘s KD IV was one of the most popular signature shoes in recent memory. The seemingly endless and limited edition colorways kept fans (and resellers) coming back again and again, and were worn by most for style rather than on-court performance. Earlier this week, Nike officially unveiled this year’s edition, the KD V. And…

  5. Report: James Harden turned down $52M extension offer from Thunder

    Oct 27, 2012, 3:06 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder James Harden durin

    The most high-profile player eligible for a contract extension before Oct. 31 is the Thunder’s James Harden. He’s a playmaker and scorer who’s been vital to the team’s success, and took home the league’s Sixth Man of the Year award just last season. But he’s looking for a max contract, and the Thunder are looking…

  6. Four days left and Harden, Thunder still talking extension

    Oct 27, 2012, 3:00 PM EDT

    James Harden

    Halloween is the deadline for rookies from the draft class of 2009 to sign extensions. And there are some real questions out there. Would you offer an extension to Stephen Curry? What about Jrue Holiday? Or Ty Lawson? The Bulls are expected to reach a deal with Taj Gibson but it hasn’t happened yet. Tyreke…

  7. Pacers’ Gerald Green can get entire head above rim. Wow.

    Oct 27, 2012, 1:29 PM EDT

    gerald-green-head-over-rim

    Gerald Green has mad hops. Don’t believe me, check out that photo. That has always been the case — coming out of high school and into the NBA his ability to get up has never been questioned. His all-around game, yes. But not his hops. It was that athleticism that got him taken in the…

  8. Lamar Odom says he doesn’t think he’ll be ready for opener

    Oct 27, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    Lamar Odom

    Lamar Odom was expected to be a steal for the Clippers — they needed frontcourt depth behind Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan and if the former Sixth Man of the Year could return to form them could provide that and more. Well, he can when he’s on the court. Which may well not be season…

  9. Video: Friday night’s best dunks courtesy LeBron, Green

    Oct 27, 2012, 10:29 AM EDT

    Miami Heat's LeBron James dunks against New Orleans Hornets' Greivis Vasquez and Ryan Anderson during their NBA basketball game in Miami, Florida

    Friday night was the last night of preseason basketball. And we say goodbye without much sadness because it means no more games with key players sitting out for “general soreness” or coaches experimenting with lineups or guys destined for the D-League racking up 30 minutes a game. We’re ready for games that matter. But we…

  10. LeBron: “I want to be the best of all-time. It’s that simple.”

    Oct 27, 2012, 8:58 AM EDT

    LeBron James

    He has said this before. Seemingly every year. When he said it as he entered the NBA and in first few years in the league it came off as the hubris of an immature player and person. Because it was. LeBron James is not an immature player anymore. The shiny championship ring he picks up…

  11. Cuban says no final decision, Delonte West could return to Mavs

    Oct 27, 2012, 8:01 AM EDT

    Mavericks owner Cuban waves to fans before the start of Mavericks versus 76ers NBA basketball game in Philadelphia

    When the Dallas Mavericks suspended Delonte West this week, it had a pretty permanent feeling. There’s the part where the Mavs said it was indefinite. Or the reports they were negotiating with his agent on a buyout. Or the part where they went out and got Eddy Curry and Chris Douglas-Roberts to potentially fill in…

  12. Austin Rivers sprains ankle in Hornets preseason finale

    Oct 26, 2012, 10:43 PM EDT

    Monty Williams, Austin Rivers

    The last thing teams want to see happen in the final game of the preseason is for one of their players to go down with an injury. Friday night in Miami, the Hornets unfortunately witnessed exactly that. Rookie guard Austin Rivers got the start at the two-guard spot against the Heat, but was forced to…

  13. Doc Rivers talks more about Ray Allen. Lord make it stop.

    Oct 26, 2012, 10:34 PM EDT

    Doc Rivers

    It’s becoming a close contest, what do I want to hear least: Another Obama/Romney attack ad or more back and forth between Ray Allen and the Celtics. Ray has consistently said that basically he didn’t feel wanted by the Celtics — they had him coming off the bench (which is he doing in Miami anyway),…

  14. Amar’e Stoudemire seeks second opinion on knee, may miss first month of the season

    Oct 26, 2012, 8:59 PM EDT

    Tristan Thompson, Amare Stoudemire

    When the news broke that Amar’e Stoudemire was experiencing an issue with his left knee, it was supposed to be relatively minor. At the time, it was expected that he’d miss the Knicks season opener, along with maybe another game or two beyond that. It now appears that he’ll be out a little longer, according…

    Finally, the NBA season is almost here. In just days there will be actual NBA games that matter (not just training camp and exhibition games).

  16. Adam Morrison waived by Portland, now may wave goodbye

    Oct 26, 2012, 7:04 PM EDT

    Adam Morrison

    Adam Morrison made it to the last cut, but he was cut. Friday the Portland Trail Blazers waived Morrison (along with Coby Karl and F Justin Holiday), reports CSNNW.com. Of that group, Karl impressed the most and he could get some 10-day call-ups with the Blazers if he doesn’t get snapped up by another team.…

  17. Friday And-1 links: As season nears, a lot of players waived

    Oct 26, 2012, 5:32 PM EDT

    NBA basketball spaulding

    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. Right before the season starts is when a lot of players who were invited…

  18. Stephen Curry confirms that he will play season opener

    Oct 26, 2012, 4:11 PM EDT

    Stephen Curry, Donta Smith

    It hasn’t been ideal, but it could have been worse. Stephen Curry started out the preseason going slow, then still tweaked his surgically-repaired ankle, and after that coach Mark Jackson shut him down for the rest of the preseason. That included sitting out practices this week. But come opening night, Curry will be ready to…

  19. Stern’s scouting report on Obama’s game: He’s not that good

    Oct 26, 2012, 3:19 PM EDT

    President Barack Obama

    Taped before he made that little announcement yesterday, this is David Stern sitting down with Robert Wolf and as part of the interview he uses a little bit of the sharp wit he is known for to take apart Barack Obama’s game — “he can only go one way” and “he’s not as good as he…

  20. Jordan didn’t exactly like Barkley calling him out

    Oct 26, 2012, 2:52 PM EDT

    Tahoe Celebrity Golf

    Charles Barkley is a lot of things, but one of them is forthright. He’s going to tell you what he thinks. No matter who you are or what you think of him. Barkley and Michael Jordan are tight, but that didn’t stop Barkley from saying Jordan was bad at running a team. Which evidence points…
