    Aug 23, 2012, 10:23 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Sacramento Kings

    Donte Greene to the Nets, Martell Webster to the Wizards . . . If it seems like the NBA is in a bit of a personnel limbo, it is because, well, it is. For as much as the floodgates open with the July start of free agency, and for as much as things can change…

    Philadelphia 76ers v New York Knicks

    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 like James T. Kirk loves green women. • The Miami Heat need some depth…

    Dwyane Wade, LeBron James

    With it being the offseason and all, it had been a while since Tiffany and I hung out, and she really missed me. I think it’s pretty obvious. So we pulled together a little summer PBT Extra. We talk about the Heat getting better, the Lakers locker room, the Nets and Knicks, and what is…

    Aug 23, 2012, 7:00 PM EST

    Donte Green

    The Nets have rounded out their roster. Apparently. They bringing in swingman Donte Greene — a guy who had a lot of shots in Sacramento, but like his three pointers often missed the mark. The report of a deal comes from Marc Spears at Yahoo Sports. Over at Nets are Scorching they add this is…

    Aug 23, 2012, 6:21 PM EST

    1976 Montreal gold medal

    You might not remember Walter Davis, but he was a stud player. He was a six time All-Star, 1978 Rookie of the Year, he averated 18.9 points per game over the course of his career, with a shooting percentage of 51.1. He to this day is the Suns all-time leading scorer. And he won a…

    Aug 23, 2012, 5:50 PM EST

    Russians Go To The Polls In Presidential Election

    This is why Nets ownership has worked to make a move to Brooklyn — it’s all about the dollars. The Nets are worth 60 percent more now than they were last season, according to a sports economist. And they may well turn a profit this year, too. That according to the New York Post. As…

    Aug 23, 2012, 4:21 PM EST

    NBA basketball player Wade attends a showing of the Richard Chai Spring/Summer 2012 collection during New York Fashion Week

    For a lot of people, it never seemed like Dwyane Wade would leave the Miami Heat two summers ago. Sure, he was a free agent coveted by teams — and he met with the Chicago Bulls — but was more about recruiting LeBron James and Chris Bosh to join him in South Beach rather than…

  9. Ibaka unhappy with Spanish team, may skip Rio Olympics

    Aug 23, 2012, 3:56 PM EST

    Spanish centre Serge Ibaka catches the b

    Serge Ibaka looked pretty good in the gold medal game against the United States — he had 12 points and 9 rebounds, and he played 22 minutes. But apparently the minutes were an issue for Ibaka through the Olympics — he wanted more but found his role shrinking. And he is so ticked he may…

  10. Video: John Wall kills it at the Drew League

    Aug 23, 2012, 3:24 PM EST

    goodman John Wall

    Last summer, John Wall was the king of the Summer League pro-am games. Well, him and Kevin Durant. But Durant went on to nearly be king of the NBA regular season, as he had a monster year that cemented his status as the best pure scorer in the game today. Wall… he went on to…

    The Sacramento Kings are not moving to Virginia Beach. We’ll start there then go to the reports that started the whole Internet buzz on Thursday. Next week a group of business leaders in the Virginia City area will make a pitch to their City Council about starting the process to build a new arena in…

  12. Video: Nuggets prove Comic-Con not best place for basketball interviews

    Aug 23, 2012, 12:52 PM EST

    General Atmosphere - Day 4 - Comic-Con International 2012

    If you’re looking to go an entire weekend speaking Klingon, Comic-Con in San Diego is the place to go. If you’re looking for NBA knowledge… not so much. But in their best Triumph the Comic Dog spirit, the Nuggets sent their people to Comic-Con to make fun of the attendees. Which is pretty much shooting…

  13. Byron Scott is pretty pumped about C.J. Miles on Cavaliers

    Aug 23, 2012, 12:32 PM EST

    Utah Jazz forward C.J. Miles reacts as Miami Heat forwards Udonis Haslem, left, and LeBron James walk off the court at the end of the second half of their NBA basketball game in Salt Lake City, Utah

    We’re bringing you a few Cleveland Cavaliers notes… because it’s August and we need things to write about. After this we’ll wait until Kyrie Irving does something interesting again.

  14. Kevin Durant says Olympic experience made him better

    Aug 23, 2012, 12:02 PM EST

    US forward Kevin Durant celebrates after

    It’s been fun watching the spin on the Olympics and having star NBA players in them. Team owners go in saying “we don’t want our players to risk injury or wear themselves down.” Then somebody looks up the numbers and the other side spins that after the Olympics players often have better years, which is…

  15. NBA Summer Power Rankings: Free agency moves Lakers up

    Aug 23, 2012, 11:00 AM EST

    Kobe Bryant Dwight Howard

    Summer NBA power rankings are about as meaningful and accurate as preseason college football rankings. At least the NBA isn’t silly enough to have something like this matter in determining a champion. That would be stupid. The top and the bottom of the poll are what you’d expect, but the Lakers and Celtics moved up…

  16. The Inbounds: The unfathomable jump Jeff Green needs

    Aug 23, 2012, 10:30 AM EST

    Jeff Green

    I’ve pretty much always been on the side that thinks Jeff Green can develop into a capable NBA player. In Oklahoma City, he was “the other guy” drafted with Durant, part of the central core. His role was nebulous, falling into that generic “forward” category. It took a while for the debate to start over…

    Arron Afflalo, Chauncey Billups

    Chauncey Billups says he wants to be ready for the start of the season. But the Clippers are not really counting on the 36-year-old bouncing back from an Achilles injury that fast. In a report discussing how the Clippers will start this season trying to play catch up due to injury, Arash Markazi of ESPNLosAngeles…

    stephen-jackson-spurs

    Stephen Jackson has not had what one would call a settled NBA career — a dozen years, seven NBA cities. Three and a half seasons in Golden State is the longest he has spent with any one team. At age 34 he is entering his second season on his second stint with the San Antonio…

  19. Martell Webster works out for, could end up with Wizards

    Aug 23, 2012, 8:45 AM EST

    Martell Webster, Rick Adelman

    Trevor Ariza will be the starting swingman for the Washington Wizards, but the team is looking at adding some depth there. Apparently. The Wizards worked out free agent Martell Webster and he could sign with them, reports Michael Lee of the Washington Post. Or, they could add one of the other veterans they are considering.…
