  1. NBA Draft recap: Three winners. Three losers.

    Jun 29, 2012, 8:50 AM EDT

    NBA prospect Davis from the University of Kentucky tries on his cap after being selected by the Hornets as the first overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft in Newark

    Let’s be honest — we don’t know who the winners and losers from this draft are. We will not know for a three to five years. We should be rating the 2009 NBA Draft now (Clippers and Thunder are your winners, the Grizzlies and Hasheem Thabeet are your losers) not the one that happened last…

  2. Three guys who didn’t get drafted but should have been

    Jun 29, 2012, 3:07 AM EDT

    Iona v Brigham Young

    When you get to the end of the second round of the NBA Draft, you see a lot of “stash” picks — teams take players from Europe they think could develop but aren’t ready to come over to the United States. They stash them in Europe for a couple years. There were some of those…

  3. Video: Anthony Davis becomes No. 1 pick, Hornets’ future

    Jun 29, 2012, 2:13 AM EDT

    2012 NBA Draft

    Some day we may look back on this moment like we look back on when Tim Duncan, KG, Wade and other NBA franchise players were drafted — Anthony Davis is potentially that good. What would make me really happy as a Hornets fan is that this is a humble, hard-working young man. The guy with…

  5. Heat trade the rights to Arnett Moultrie to Sixers

    Jun 28, 2012, 10:59 PM EDT

    arnett-moultrie-heat-76ers

    Arnett Moultrie, the 6’11” power forward out of Mississippi State, was projected as a late-lottery or mid-first-round pick in most experts’ mock drafts. The Suns selected Kendall Marshall at 13, but had enough interest in Moultrie that they had him in for a second workout last week. Despite the reported level of interest, Moultrie ended up…

  6. Suns did not draft Kendall Marshall for his athleticism

    North Carolina Marshall reacts after scoring against the Creighton during a college basketball game in Greensboro

    Kendall Marshall was selected by the Suns with the 13th overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, and by listening to the team’s GM Lance Blanks — as well as to the loud applause that rained down from the team’s war room as the pick was announced — it was clear that the organization was…

  7. Draft trade: Tyler Zeller traded to Cavaliers for three picks

    Jun 28, 2012, 9:35 PM EDT

    NCAA Basketball Tournament - Kansas v North Carolina

    The first trade of the draft moves a reliable big man to Cleveland, where he ideally can provide some balance to what the Cavs hope is a dynamic back court. Dallas, they get a few more picks. The first trade of a quiet NBA Draft night (relative to what was expected) has Dallas selecting then…

  8. Report: Lamar Odom to Clippers deal finalized; Mo Williams will pick up option, head to Utah

    Jun 28, 2012, 8:01 PM EDT

    Tribeca/ESPN Sports Film Festival  Gala: Benji - 2012 Tribeca Film Festival

    The deal we reported to you earlier — Lamar Odom to the Clippers, Mo Williams to Utah and a lot of cash savings to Dallas — will go forward, reports the Associated Press. Earlier in the day it was the Dallas Morning News that broke the news the deal was in place. But it was…

  9. Reports: Cavaliers may trade up to No. 2, down to No. 7, or anywhere

    Jun 28, 2012, 6:40 PM EDT

    As tends to happen in the hours before the draft, all kinds of trade buzz is out there… but this time there seems some real fire behind the smoke. We likely will see some trades in the top 5 of the draft. Specifically if the Cavaliers have anything to say about it. The Bobcats have…

  10. Report: Pistons expected to take UNC’s John Henson at No. 9

    Jun 28, 2012, 6:21 PM EDT

    John Henson speaks during a news conference for prospective NBA draft picks in New York

    I’m higher on North Carolina’s shot-blocking forward John Henson than most, or at least most not wearing powder blue. And if he falls to No. 9, which is highly likely, look for the Detroit Pistons to grab him, reports the Detroit Free Press. Henson is the likely pick. The Pistons like his makeup and, despite…

  11. Report: Suns will enter the chase for free agent Ray Allen

    Jun 28, 2012, 5:26 PM EDT

    Ray Allen

    Youth movement? What youth movement? The Phoenix Suns have admitted they need to upgrade their roster if they plan to keep Steve Nash from leaving them as a free agent this summer (even though they do have the advantage of being able to offer more money than anyone else). So, how about Ray Allen to…

  12. Report: Rockets talking to Kings about No. 5 pick… unless Robinson is there

    Jun 28, 2012, 4:52 PM EDT

    NCAA Men's Championship Game - Kansas v Kentucky

    Sacramento’s No. 5 overall pick has been in play since pretty much the night of the draft lottery. The Houston Rockets have spent the last few days making smaller moves and working hard to get high up in the draft — either to draft Andre Drummond or to turn that high pick into a player…

  13. Report: Utah could facilitate Odom to Clippers, but Mo Williams is key

    Jun 28, 2012, 4:30 PM EDT

    Lamar Odom Clippers

    And we have come to this — Mo Williams holds the key to Lamar Odom’s future. PBT told you yesterday that the Los Angeles Clippers were interested in trading for Lamar Odom. While a lot of people speculated that they wanted him to be a backup big behind Blake Griffin, the fact is he could…

  14. Dwyane Wade needs knee surgery, withdraws from Olympics

    Jun 28, 2012, 4:14 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade Team USA Olympics

    That Dwyane Wade played as well as he did through the Heat’s title run considering how bad his left knee was in an impressive feat. And his knee was bad. Wade has learned he will need knee surgery and today called USA Basketball president Jerry Colangelo and coach Mike Krzyzewski to withdraw from Team USA…

  15. Jackson, Warriors issue statements on affair, extortion case

    Jun 28, 2012, 2:58 PM EDT

    Mark Jackson Warriors

    We told you earlier today about the FBI breaking up an extortion plot that targeted Warriors coach Mark Jackson. A former stripper with a criminal record teamed with another man to use nude photos, text messages and more that Jackson sent in an affair six years ago to extort money from him. The man and…

  16. Report: Bulls to draft Kansas’ Tyshawn Taylor at No. 29

    Jun 28, 2012, 2:42 PM EDT

    Final Four - Ohio State v Kansas

    The Bulls have a point guard — that Derrick Rose guy is pretty good. But whenever he returns from his ACL rehab, he will be the man. But who will be the backup? Next season and long term? This report from Vin Parise of the NBC Sports Network may answer that. According to league sources,…

  17. Nowitzki says he’d love to have Deron Williams in Dallas. Ya think?

    Jun 28, 2012, 2:19 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    The recruitment of Deron Williams is picking up steam, and we haven’t even gotten to July 1 yet. The Nets put a big billboard wishing Williams a happy birthday in front of his house. Delonte West has been on twitter trying to recruit Williams to Boston despite the fact West himself is now a free…

  18. Report: Spurs shopping DeJuan Blair for trade

    Jun 28, 2012, 1:53 PM EDT

    DeJuan Blair, Al Harrington

    A year ago, everybody in the second round of the NBA Draft was saying “we want to find our DeJuan Blair.” Now, they can have the real DeJuan Blair because the San Antonio Spurs are shopping him around, tweets Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. Spurs are shopping forward DeJuan Blair, league sources tell Y! Spurs…

  19. Mark Jackson reportedly blackmailed by ex-stripper with nude photos

    mark-jacksonwarriors

    I’m not even going to get into the hypocrisy here, not going to say “mama there goes that man,” and just report it as news… well, except for that comment. The FBI has broken up and extortion scheme targeting Warriors coach Mark Jackson, perpetrated by a former stripper with a criminal record. The Smoking Gun…

  20. Report: Celtics working hard to get into NBA Draft top 14

    Jun 28, 2012, 12:48 PM EDT

    Image (1) Celtics_Logo-thumb-250x278-12853.gif for post 6268

    Right now the Boston Celtics own the numbers 21 and 22 picks in this draft. History shows us what that really means is between the two picks the Celtics probably get one guy who could be a rotation player in a few years. That doesn’t really work for Boston. So it makes sense that they…
