  1. No surprise, the Wizards are open for firesale business. Everything but Wall must go.

    Mar 10, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Atlanta Hawks

    That the Wizards are terrible should not surprise you. A terrible team looking to change its personnel should not surprise you. But when any team declares itself completely open for business outside of one player, yeah, that’s worth at least a look. From the Washington Post’s Michael Lee:   Source just told me #wizards have…

  2. Ricky Rubio may have torn ACL, would be done for season

    Mar 10, 2012, 12:56 AM EDT

    Rick Rubio

    It looked like just two knees colliding when it happened, but it appears something much more serious may have happened to Timberwolves rookie Ricky Rubio. With 16.4 seconds left in the game against the Lakers Friday night — and the Timberwolves up one —Rubio ran over to trap Kobe Bryant when the Lakers’ closer got…

  3. Video: Thunder with three blocks and a dunk

    Mar 9, 2012, 10:33 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant, Serge Ibaka, Russell Westbrook

    There are teams that execute better than the Oklahoma City Thunder, but there are none as athletic and long — and that leads to fun highlights. Like this one against the Cavaliers. Three Serge Ibaka blocks, one Kevin Durant block and a Russell Westbrook and James Harden fast break. It’s the most fun you’re going…

  4. Lakers offensive system not the problem, it’s the shooters

    Mar 9, 2012, 9:06 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    The Lakers are frustrated. They are talking about wanting to run more triangle sets and less of Mike Brown’s east-to-west motion offense. I’ve said it’s less about the offense than the execution — the Lakers need to be an inside-out team, but are you when Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol combined take just 1.7 more…

  5. Winderman: The “Take my Turkoglu, please” trade deadline

    Mar 9, 2012, 7:30 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard, Hedo Turkoglu

    The shame of the NBA trading deadline is that it does not follow the post-Christmas “Boxing Day” tradition of Canada and other countries, where you spend the day after sorting out the junk from the actual gifts. In the NBA, it remains an all-in-one process, which is why, in this space over the past few…

  6. Orlando’s Turkoglu suspended one game for touching referee

    Mar 9, 2012, 6:56 PM EDT

    Hedo Turkoglue

    We told you earlier today we expected this to come down, now it is official. Orlando forward Hedo Turkoglu has been suspended one game for making contact with an official, the league has announced. He will sit Sunday when the Magic take on the Pacers. During Thursday night’s game against the Bulls, Turkoglu disagreed with…

  7. The time Robert Parish refused to put up with Michael Jordan

    Mar 9, 2012, 6:37 PM EDT

    robert parish Bulls

    There is a fantastic story up at ESPNBoston.com looking at the end of the first “Big Three” in Boston — Larry Bird, Kevin McHale and Robert Parish. McHale and Bird finished their careers as Celtics, but people often forget that Parrish spent two years in Charlotte then went on to the 1996-97 Chicago Bulls —…

  8. Boston might trade one of “Big Three” but price is steep

    Mar 9, 2012, 5:41 PM EDT

    Ray Allen, Nick Young

    Danny Ainge likes to tell the story about how when he was a Celtic Red Auerbach said he could have traded Boston’s legendary “big three” of Larry Bird, Kevin McHale and Robert Parish at the end of their careers but didn’t — and that Ainge wouldn’t make the mistake. Ainge felt holding on to them…

  9. Wizards might trade you McGee… if you take Blatche, too

    Mar 9, 2012, 3:38 PM EDT

    Andray Blatche, JaVale McGee

    UPDATE 7:38 PM: It’s not just McGee you can have if you take on Blatche, Michael Lee of the Washington Post tweets. Source just told me wizards have informed teams they can have any player except John Wall if they are willing to take Andray Blatche That is how bad the Wizards want Blatche out…

  10. Video: Dwight Howard scouts Bulls imitating Shaq, Barkley

    Mar 9, 2012, 2:54 PM EDT

    Sprint NBA All Star Celebrity Game

    Dwight Howard was joking around before his team went out and beat the Bulls Thursday night and gave his scouting report on the team — while doing an imitation of Shaquille O’Neal and Charles Barkley. Watch this or we’ll just give you another Dwight Howard trade rumor. Don’t make us do that. We feel like…

  11. Best prospect you won’t see in Tournament: Damian Lillard

    Mar 9, 2012, 1:50 PM EDT

    Damian Lillard, Julian Demalleville

    Don’t you go sleeping on Weber State — they have sent eight guys to the NBA, most recently Lance Allred and Eddie Gill. And they have a lottery-level prospect this year in point guard Damian Lillard. However, those of you who like to do your NBA draft scouting during the NCAA Tournament are out of…

  12. Jason Terry not happy with coach’s decision to bench him late in loss to Suns

    Mar 9, 2012, 1:34 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    After the Mavericks had allowed an 11-point third quarter lead to become an 11-point fourth quarter deficit late Thursday night in Phoenix, they were able to gather themselves and make one final push in the game’s final three minutes. Dallas had fought back to within two, and had possession of the ball with 15.4 seconds…

  13. Report: Magic a house divided on Dwight Howard trade

    Mar 9, 2012, 12:58 PM EDT

    Magic's Howard meditates just before the tip-off of their NBA basketball game with the New York Knicks in New York

    We all keep waiting for some kind of definitive decision from the Orlando Magic — are they going to keep or trade Dwight Howard? Maybe the reason we don’t have that answer is that the Magic are still divided on what they want to do, or what kind of trade package they want back. That’s…

  14. Bucks put Bogut on trade block, but you have to take Stephen Jackson too

    Mar 9, 2012, 12:12 PM EDT

    Andrew Bogut, Mario Chalmers, Shane Battier

    For a long time, Andrew Bogut was untouchable as a trade piece in Milwaukee — there just are not a lot of quality big men in the NBA and when healthy Bogut was a borderline All-Star. But he hasn’t really been healthy for several years — first his major elbow injury two years ago and…

  15. Richard Hamilton’s shoulder may not be right by playoffs

    Mar 9, 2012, 11:53 AM EDT

    Richard Rip Hamilton

    At the end of the Bulls loss to the Magic Thursday night you saw how much Chicago misses Richard Hamilton — Chicago shot 2-for-10 in the final five minutes with Kyle Korver going an uncharacteristic 0-for-5. They needed another reliable scorer on the floor. Rip can be that scorer, but a shoulder injury has him…

  16. Friday And-1 links: Zach Randolph, trade rumors and more

    Here is our daily 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). Zach Randolph is aiming to be back in the Grizzlies lineup next Tuesday against the Lakers. He has been out since Jan. 1 since tearing…

  17. Celtics don’t expect to make big move at trade deadline

    Mar 9, 2012, 11:03 AM EDT

    Avery Bradley, Mickael Pietrus, Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen

    The rumors swirling around the Boston Celtics are of radical changes — Rajon Rondo, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen have all had their names come up in trade scenarios — but in the end it may all be a lot of words with no action. Well, it is an election year, we should expect a…

  18. Report: Magic seek package similar to ‘Melo deal for Howard

    Mar 9, 2012, 10:04 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard;  Jerryd Bayless ; Chris Duhon

    Orlando still has not decided that they are going to trade Dwight Howard — in fact, they seem to be leaning toward keeping him through the trade deadline and the end of the season — but if they do move him they are letting teams know what they want: A haul like Denver got last…

  19. Timberwolves bringing back GM David Kahn for another year

    We are going to have David Kahn to kick around for another year. Minnesota owner Glen Taylor told the Pioneer Press the team plans to bring David Kahn back next season. Kahn is in the final year of his deal but the team has two one-year options and they are picking one up. “I like…

  20. MRI finds nothing wrong with Lowry; he spends night in hospital

    Mar 9, 2012, 8:55 AM EDT

    Kyle Lowry

    UPDATE March 9, 8:55 am: The MRI of Kyle Lowry‘s groin — apparently the mystery injury moved up the leg from the original ankle report to the groin area — found nothing structurally wrong. Which is good. However Lowry still spend the night in the hospital as he had reportedly abdominal pains. This all sounds…
