  1. Report: Celtics make Fab Melo available in trade for guard

    Feb 20, 2013, 2:46 PM EDT

    2012 NBA Rookie Photo Shoot

    Fab Melo is the kind of project that a team like Boston can take on — they are a veteran team who can have a very athletic but raw guy at the end of the bench who barely plays, who can spend time in the D-League, who can be brought along slowly. Fans always fall…

  2. Report: Nets still hoping Humphries, Brooks enough to get Josh Smith

    Feb 20, 2013, 1:36 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v New York Knicks

    Atlanta doesn’t have to rush with Josh Smith. Well, sure, there is the trade deadline at 3 ET on Thursday. But they have the biggest name and best player available on the trade block right now and a lot of teams calling them. Atlanta GM Danny Ferry is not taking the first offer he sees.…

  3. Report: Celtics say they won’t trade Rajon Rondo

    Feb 20, 2013, 1:25 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Boston Celtics - Game Three

    All reports regarding a team’s trade intentions at this time of year should be read very carefully until any deal is actually completed. But this one regarding what the Celtics are planning to do with Rajon Rondo as Thursday’s deadline approches seems as close as we can get to a true assurance. From Sam Amick…

    Feb 20, 2013, 1:17 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    UPDATE 1:17 pm: Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak went on ESPN Radio in Los Angeles and said the same thing again — Dwight Howard and Pau Gaol will not be traded at the deadline. He said the Lakers have a two-year title window right now — this and next season — and they plan on having…

  5. Denial: No Suns’ Gortat for Thunder’s Perkins trade happening

    Feb 20, 2013, 1:12 PM EDT

    Kendrick Perkins

    If you’re in the Oklahoma City front office and you watched the Miami Heat toy with your team last Thursday night, it had to make your stomach turn a little. Get to a finals rematch and things may not be pretty. Maybe you need to make a trade. Find a way to get some points…

  6. Report: Bucks tell teams Brandon Jennings is off market

    Feb 20, 2013, 12:04 PM EDT

    Jason Kidd, Brandon Jennings

    While he denies it, multiple reports suggest Brandon Jennings wants out of Milwaukee. His hiring of a new agent known for getting players to big markets adds fuel to that fire. But the latest reports suggest the Bucks want to hold on to Jennings and are willing to ship his backcourt mate Monta Ellis out…

  7. Grizzlies, multiple teams in on J.J. Redick trade talks

    Feb 20, 2013, 11:27 AM EDT

    Bobcats Magic Basketball

    There has never been anyone more likely to be moved at the deadline than J.J. Redick. It’s not that they don’t want to re-sign the free agent and keep him, it’s that contending teams that need a shooter will play more for him next summer than the Magic are willing to pay. So they need…

  8. Report: Hornets shopping Eric Gordon around, finding no takers

    Feb 20, 2013, 9:56 AM EDT

    Eric Gordon

    There is no shortage of New Orleans Hornets fans ready to ship Eric Gordon out of town. He begged the Hornets not to match the Suns max offer sheet last summer (the Hornets did) then he’s been out with a knee injury that seemed mysterious to some. Since his return he’s had good games and…

    barkley black suns jersey

    Happy birthday Charles Barkley. For a younger generation he’s the opinionated and funny guy on the TNT broadcasts. But for people a few years older, they remember that Charles Barkley could play. Like got into the Hall of Fame could play — he was an NBA MVP, a gold medalist on the Dream Team, an…

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while watching the residents of Harlem say the Harlem Shake meme has nothing to do with the Harlem Shake….

    Feb 20, 2013, 2:11 AM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets Johnson smiles on the bench after leaving their NBA basketball game against Oklahoma City Thunder, in Oklahoma City

    Wasn’t Monday night awful? No NBA games being played brought back some serious lockout flashbacks, but Tuesday night was just the remedy. Nine games were on the slate to welcome us back from the All-Star break, and there were some impressive performances put up. Tony Parker rattled off 30 points and 11 assists in a…

  12. Trade rumor roundup: Lots of talk Tuesday, no action

    Feb 20, 2013, 2:10 AM EDT

    Josh Smith

    We warned you this could be a slow trade deadline — with the new CBA kicking in fully next summer teams are concerned about both the more regressive tax and the repeater taxes for going over the luxury tax line. Meaning teams that might normally take on more salary simply are hesitant now. Here is…

  14. Scoreboard malfunction has Raptors/Wizards looking old school

    Feb 19, 2013, 9:01 PM EDT

    Raptors Wizards scoreboard

    We are slaves to our technology — when it goes bad we feel like we’re back in the middle ages. Or in the case of the Verizon center in Washington Tuesday night, the 1970s NBA. The arena’s main scoreboard was malfunctioning, as were the 24-second clocks over the basket at both ends. And the buzzer.…

  15. Tuesday And-1 Links: Kevin Garnett doing yoga. He’s centered.

    Feb 19, 2013, 5:44 PM EDT

    NBA Commissioner David Stern listens at a news conference before the All Star slam dunk competition during the NBA basketball All-Star weekend in Houston

    There is a lot to understand when it comes to the potential sale of Sacramento Kings.  As NBA commissioner David Stern laid out Saturday, the 29 owners deciding the Kings’ future home face a complex story involving a great ownership group in Seattle and a compelling story out of Sacramento. Seattle’s ownership group already has…

  17. Like every other GM right now, Danny Ainge says not to expect a deal

    Feb 19, 2013, 5:25 PM EDT

    Danny Ainge

    If you only believed the public comments of NBA GMs, no trade was ever going to happen in the NBA. To make sure they have some leverage, they all say nothing is likely to happen. They talk but their not interested. Danny Ainge is the king of that — he’s had some conversations about everyone…

  18. Danny Granger’s return soon… but not Wednesday

    Feb 19, 2013, 4:50 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Cleveland Cavaliers

    The Indiana Pacers are one of a couple teams that could be a threat to the Heat in the East, but they need more offense and depth to do it. Which is why the return of last year’s leading scorer Danny Granger could be huge. That return will be soon, likely this week, but not…

  19. Jerry West talks about his time working with Jerry Buss (VIDEO)

    Feb 19, 2013, 4:24 PM EDT

    Long Beach State v UCLA

    Among the many smart moves Jerry Buss made as owner of the Lakers was to make Jerry West his right hand basketball guy for so many years, through much of the “Showtime” era. While a lot of superstars struggle to make the transition to an after-basketball role — playing is instinctual, the front office is…

  20. Phil Jackson says he’s not coaching again; Lakers running wrong offense

    Feb 19, 2013, 3:46 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Sacramento Kings

    Phil Jackson is a man with strong convictions. That comes through in a conversation with Jack McCallum of Sports Illustrated. One where Jackson says most of the league just mimics each other rather than run their own system. That’s why he likes Gregg Popovich and the Spurs, they play their way. Jackson also reiterated what…
