  1. Shawn Marion says he will not report if traded to a bad team

    Feb 8, 2013, 6:40 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks forward Marion shoots against the Memphis Grizzlies during their NBA basketball game in Dallas, Texas

    The Dallas Mavericks would like as much cap space as possible this summer to make a run at free agents — you think they are not watching the Dwight Howard situation with the Lakers closely? They want another star to pair with Dirk Nowitzki. The Mavericks only have $42.2 million in guaranteed salary on the…

  2. Report: Nets, Bobcats discussing Kris Humphries for Ben Gordon trade

    Feb 8, 2013, 5:53 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v New York Knicks

    The Brooklyn Nets are looking for a way to space the floor — they take the seventh most threes in the NBA, 21.7 a game, but shoot just 34.8 percent (21st in the league). Teams clog the lane on the Nets, try to take away Brook Lopez and easy driving lanes for Deron Williams. The…

  3. Report: Cavaliers about to offer Greg Oden multi-year contract

    Feb 8, 2013, 3:59 PM EDT

    greg_oden

    Greg Oden wants to give it another go in the NBA and teams were lining up to get him. The Celtics and Spurs were among those with interest, as were the Heat with the lure of all the… let’s say “extracurricular activities” Miami can provide. But Cleveland was always the front runner to land Oden…

  4. Report: Bulls have no plans to amnesty Boozer this summer

    Feb 8, 2013, 3:34 PM EDT

    Carlos Boozer

    When trade reports surfaced of a Carlos Boozer for Andrea Bargnani trade came up it didn’t make a lot of sense for me. If you’re Chicago you could save $5 million a year for a couple years with Bargnani buried on your bench (you think Tom Thibodeau is going to play him much?) but why…

  5. Andre Miller wants a bigger role in Denver or wherever. GM says Miller not being traded.

    Feb 8, 2013, 3:06 PM EDT

    Nuggets guard Miller drives to the basket as Mavericks guard Jones defends during the second half of their NBA basketball game in Dallas

    UPDATE 3:06 pm: Andre Miller didn’t come out and directly ask for a trade in the comments below, but he came pretty close. Not going to happen, Nuggets GM Masai Ujiri said to the Denver Post. In no uncertain terms. “Andre is not going anywhere. We want to win.” Other teams will still call, but as…

  6. PBT Podcast: Lakers, Dwight Howard, Nuggets, Dunk Contest, and Bulls talk with Aggrey Sam

    Feb 8, 2013, 2:23 PM EDT

    gerald green cupcake

    In this edition of the podcast, Kurt Helin and I sit down to discuss the state of the Lakers, following Thursday night’s destruction at the hands of the Celtics. We wonder if Dwight Howard came back too soon thanks to some encouragement from his teammates, and if the lack of energy he seems to be playing…

  7. East Coast storm puts Sunday Knicks/Clippers game at risk

    Feb 8, 2013, 2:19 PM EDT

    Northeast Snow

    The New York Knicks play Friday night in Minnesota. The Los Angeles Clippers play Friday night Miami. NBA protocol would be for both teams to fly to New York Friday night after their games and be in the city all day Saturday leading up to their Sunday afternoon nationally televised showdown. But the severe winter…

  8. Wade, Bosh, Allen all could be out for Heat vs. Clippers Friday

    Feb 8, 2013, 12:40 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's Dwyane Wade drives between New Orleans Hornets in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Miami, Florida

    If you paid a lot of money to see the Heat and Clippers in an All-Star battle Friday night, I’d hold my breath. The good news is the Clippers could be getting Chris Paul back — their MVP candidate is a game time decision, but it is thought he will play. Not so much for…

  9. Birdman finds a nest: Heat sign Chris Andersen for rest of season

    Feb 8, 2013, 11:58 AM EDT

    Detroit Pistons' Andre Drummond and Miami Heat's Chris Andersen look toward the inbounded ball immediately after Andersen scored his first points for the Heat against Detroit  in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Miami, Florida

    If there is one vulnerable spot on the Heat it is size — if you ask people from the Bulls and Pacers why they think they can dethrone the champions, it is being able to play bigger and Miami not being able to counter that. Miami tried to deal with that by giving 6’10” Chris…

  10. Reports: Grizzlies not moving Zach Randolph, but will talk other trades

    Feb 8, 2013, 11:27 AM EDT

    Zach Randolph

    After a couple of trade that took a lot of salary off the Memphis books — and sent Rudy Gay north to Toronto — the Grizzlies are done with moves to reduce salary. They are not trading theier stars. But that does not mean they are done making trades completely. A couple of trade notes…

  11. Another report it is unlikely Celtics trade Garnett, Pierce

    Feb 8, 2013, 10:38 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Boston Celtics

    In case the 4,871 other times you read that the Celtics are unlikely to trade Paul Pierce or Kevin Garnett didn’t sink in, here is one more. This should do it. First, there is what Celtics President and decision maker Danny Ainge told ESPNBoston.com. “Yeah, I think that’s by far the most likely thing. Sure,”…

  12. Report: Minnesota has discussed buyout of Brandon Roy

    Feb 8, 2013, 9:58 AM EDT

    Brandon Roy

    Brandon Roy’s comeback in Minnesota has seen more setbacks than successes. He has played in just five games for the Timberwolves and hasn’t stepped on the court since Nov. 9. Roy hasn’t given up on a comeback, but Minnesota has started to take the logical step of buying him out, reports Darren Wolfson at ESPN…

  13. Ty Lawson with crossover and dish, Faried with finish (VIDEO)

    Feb 8, 2013, 8:40 AM EDT

    Ty Lawson

    It looked like this all night — Denver playing with energy and finishing possessions with dunks, Chicago standing around and watching those dunks. Denver routed Chicago Thursday night and had a lot of fun doing it. And they put on quite a show in the process. Here Ty Lawson shows off an impressive crossover, then…

  14. Kevin Love says he loves being in Minnesota, wants to be there

    Feb 8, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Kevin Love

    There’s a perception that Kevin Love is not happy in Minnesota. Part of that is fueled by Love saying he didn’t feel the love from the Timberwolves organization last contract time, saying if this was still not a playoff team when his contract is up in a few years he would have to consider his options.…

  15. Bulls watch as Nuggets run right past them to easy win

    Feb 8, 2013, 2:36 AM EDT

    Kenneth Faried

    That didn’t look anything like the Chicago Bulls that has been a defensive force and a top-four team in the East despite missing the recent league MVP that leads their offense. That did look everything like the hot Denver Nuggets that came into Thursday having won seven in a row, 21 of 24 at home…

  16. Kobe doesn’t need to say it anymore, it’s obvious Howard needs to play with urgency

    Feb 8, 2013, 12:46 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers' Dwight Howard reacts as he looks up at the scoreboard in the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Boston Celtics at TD Garden in Boston

    When Kobe Bryant said Dwight Howard needed to suck it up and play through pain, this was not what he had mind. Kobe wanted a sense of urgency, he wanted leadership, he wanted a guy who would shows some fight to help push the Lakers toward the playoffs. He wanted passion. Thursday night Howard showed…

  17. Report: Rajon Rondo may return sooner than expected

    Feb 8, 2013, 12:41 AM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Boston Celtics - Game Three

    Before you get your hopes up Celtics fans, we’re still not talking about this season. But the latest news coming out of the camp of Rajon Rondo is seen as a positive, and if true and the rehab goes according to planned, Boston could see its All-Star point guard return before the beginning of next…

  18. Kevin Garnett reaches 25,000 career-point milestone against the Lakers (VIDEO)

    Feb 8, 2013, 12:01 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics Kevin Garnett acknowledges the crowd after it was announced that he scored his 25,000th career point against the Los Angeles Lakers

    With a spinning, fadeaway jumper over the Lakers’ Earl Clark midway through the second quarter of Boston’s destruction of L.A. on Thursday, Kevin Garnett reached 25,000 career points, becoming the 16th player in NBA history to record the accomplishment. The list of players Garnett joined with at least 25,000 career points is an impressive one,…

  19. Celtics earn sixth straight win by taking apart the Lakers

    Feb 7, 2013, 11:25 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Boston Celtics

    The Celtics and Lakers have the most storied rivalry in the history of the NBA. No matter what’s happening with each team individually throughout the course of a given season, whenever the two teams meet, there’s always a special kind of buzz and energy that surrounds those contests. That wasn’t the case in Boston on…

    Feb 7, 2013, 10:04 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade

    It’s time for the latest PBT Extra, and this time Kay Adams and I discuss that the reports of Dwyane Wade‘s demise may have been a greatly exaggerated. He may not be his 2006 self but he’s scoring 20.9 points a game. Then we move on to how the loss of Pau Gasol for a…
