  1. Report: Raptors open to trading guard Jose Calderon

    Jan 29, 2012, 9:31 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors' Calderon drives to the basket past Sacramento Kings' Thomas during their NBA basketball game in Toronto

    If only there were a couple big name teams out there looking for a point guard…. Interesting note from Marc Stein of ESPN: Sources with knowledge of Toronto’s thinking say that the team is not just going to give Calderon away, especially when he’s back to supplying a typically efficient 10.6 points and 8.7 assists…

  2. Rajon Rondo says he could be out until All-Star break

    Jan 29, 2012, 8:04 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics' Garnett whispers to teammate Rondo as they sit on the bench during their NBA basketball game against the Orlando Magic in Boston

    Boston has had a nice four-game win streak with Rajon Rondo sitting on the sidelines in a suit and Paul Pierce finding the Fountain of Youth, but long term the Celtics need their point guard back. That could be a while. Rondo tried to be vague when CSNNE.com’s Jessica Camerato asked him when he might…

  3. Steve Nash suffers thigh bruise at the end of Suns’ win over the Grizzlies

    Jan 29, 2012, 3:15 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Phoenix Suns

    It’s probably nothing that will hinder Steve Nash for very long, if at all. But on the last play of the Suns’ 86-84 win over the Grizzlies on Saturday, Nash collided with Marc Gasol, causing him to limp off the floor after Mike Conley‘s three-point attempt at the buzzer to win it fell short. “It…

  4. Report: D’Antoni’s job with Knicks safe. For now at least.

    Jan 28, 2012, 9:00 PM EDT

    Mike D'Antoni

    Apparently the Knicks are not planning to end the Mike D’Antoni era any time soon. Then again, Flip Saunders got a direct vote of confidence from his owner just a couple weeks before the axe fell. But as of right now, there are no plans to make a move — but D’Antoni’s fate could rest…

  5. Gentry says Suns “have to find a way to play with Nash off the floor”

    Jan 28, 2012, 8:56 PM EDT

    nash-gentry-preview

    The Suns are off to a 6-12 start, which isn’t exactly where the team hoped or expected to be a little more than a quarter of the way through this lockout-shortened season. The problems certainly can’t be traced back to Steve Nash, who leads the league in assists despite Phoenix playing at a much slower…

  6. Daniel Orton made his NBA debut 582 days after being drafted by Orlando Magic

    Jan 28, 2012, 6:30 PM EDT

    Daniel Orton

    The Orlando Magic drafted Daniel Orton on June 24, 2010, with the 29th overall pick of the NBA Draft. 582 days later, the 6-foot-10 center made his big league debut in garbage time of Friday night’s 93-67 loss to the New Orleans Hornets. Orton, a project pick and one of five Kentucky players selected in…

  7. Milwaukee’s Stephen Jackson suspended for Lakers game

    Jan 28, 2012, 5:06 PM EDT

    Stephen Jackosn

    Because the Bucks could afford to lose another key player right now…. Stephen Jackson has been suspended by the league after he yelled at a referee and refused to leave the court at the end of the Bucks loss to the Chicago Bulls Friday night. He is out for the Bucks Saturday night game against…

  8. Dwight Howard blasts teammates for lack of effort after blowout loss to Hornets

    Jan 28, 2012, 4:00 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    The wheels are starting to come off in Orlando. Just one night after blowing a 27-point lead at home in a loss to the Celtics, the Magic pulled a complete no-show in New Orleans, and were blown out 93-67 by a Hornets team that entered the game just 3-15 on the season. That effort (or…

  9. Spurs decline third-year option on James Anderson

    Jan 28, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT

    DeJuan Blair, James Anderson

    Although the final public analysis of any NBA roster move is usually distilled to a few lines of explanation, every single decision that an NBA front office makes is a complicated one. Salary, fit, production, potential, age, redundancy, personality, character, experience, flexibility — all of these factors — and more — come into play, and…

  10. Report: Lakers talking to Gilbert Arenas. Hey, don’t laugh.

    Jan 28, 2012, 12:30 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Sacramento Kings

    How serious are the Lakers point guard concerns? If you think Gilbert Arenas can help solve them, pretty serious. The Lakers have struggled at that spot as they need a more traditional point as they move from the triangle offense to Mike Brown’s sets, and so they are looking at their options. And Arenas is…

  11. Detroit second rounder Kyle Singler content with decision to stay overseas

    Jan 28, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Kyle Singler, Joe Dumars

    It’s rare for a player selected in the second round of the NBA to have much immediate career affirmation. After all, many second rounders never even make the final cut of an NBA roster, and those that do typically warm the bench and play out unguaranteed contracts as practice filler. Duke forward Kyle Singler appears…

  12. Kevin Durant: “Who cares who’s better, Westbrook or me?”

    Jan 28, 2012, 9:27 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook

    Kevin Durant honestly doesn’t get why people think he and Russell Westbrook can’t coexist. They have had some friction, but so has every team that won a title. You think it was a bowl of cherries to practice with Michael Jordan? Durant genuinely could not care less who scores the most points, who gets the…

  13. Jimmer Fredette trying to find his way, Kings not helping much

    Jan 28, 2012, 8:02 AM EDT

    Jimmer Fredette, Joakim Noah, Derrick Rose

    It’s been a rough rookie year for Jimmer Fredette. In college he was a pure scorer who could do no wrong, racking up big numbers in the face of double teams while setting his teammates. His team won and he was the Golden Child. In the NBA, with its longer defenders, he is shooting just…

  14. Heat show Knicks how to run up-tempo offense and win

    Jan 27, 2012, 11:34 PM EDT

    LeBron James, Dwyane Wade Miami Heat

    Dwyane Wade was back and so were the Heat. After a few games of the LeBron James show with the pace slowed (while Wade recovered from a sprained ankle), the Miami Heat with Wade returned to their high-pressure, up-tempo style of play — you know, kind of like Mike D’Antoni was brought in to run…

  15. Report: Hornets shopping center Chris Kaman

    Jan 27, 2012, 9:53 PM EDT

    Dell Demps, Chris Kaman

    When you heard that center Chris Kaman was a healthy scratch Wednesday, then again Friday night for the Hornets, you wondered what was up. That team is too devoid of talent to just sit a solid center. It’s not a question of effort, say what you will about Kaman he’s trying. Now we know —…

  16. It’s official, Dwyane Wade back for Heat Friday vs. Knicks

    Jan 27, 2012, 7:11 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade, Miami Heat

    Despite national media reports to the contrary earlier in the day (not here, we know who to listen to), Dwyane Wade will be back playing for the Heat on Friday night. Wade had been through shootaround and everything felt fine, so he is a go. Here is coach Erik Spoelstra’s quote, thanks to Ira Winderman…

  17. Eric Gordon says lack of deal with Hornets was “mutual”

    Jan 27, 2012, 6:12 PM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Phoenix Suns

    The New Orleans Hornets and shooting guard Eric Gordon negotiated but could not reach a deal on an extension to his rookie deal. Reports said he rejected the offer from the Hornets, but Gordon told the Times-Picayune that is not exactly the case. “It wasn’t that I turned down anything, it works both ways,’’ Gordon…

  18. Andrew Bogut out two to three months. Sorry Bucks fans.

    Jan 27, 2012, 5:11 PM EDT

    andrew bogut

    The official report on Andrew Bogut’s fractured ankle is out and well, it’s not good if you had visions of the Bucks in the playoffs. Andrew Bogut will be out 8 to 12 weeks with his fractured ankle, the team announced on Friday. Bad news. That is essentially the rest of the season. Bad news.…

  19. Winderman: NBA alternate uniform craze out of control

    Jan 27, 2012, 3:43 PM EDT

    LeBron James, Kane Fitzgerald

    Finally, we have found the saving grace of this lockout-shortened season: The ratio between uniform combinations and games is drawing closer to a one-to-one basis. Even before the Memphis TAMs took the court against the L.A. Stars on TNT on Thursday night, we had entered a world where we were facing video-game-like choices when it…

  20. Video: Who has the best crossover in the NBA?

    Jan 27, 2012, 2:43 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose, John Lucas III

    Jamal Crawford or Derrick Rose? You might throw some others in the conversation, but those are the two guys other NBA players are talking about in this video. And if your list doesn’t have J-Crossover on it, you’re doing it wrong. But I’d lean Rose.
