  2. Bobcats waive Ben Gordon after deadline for him to join playoff roster

    Mar 2, 2014, 3:30 PM EDT

    Ersan Ilyasova, Ben Gordon

    A year ago, the Charlotte Bobcats tried to trade Ben Gordon – and apparently couldn’t. A week ago, they tried to buy out Gordon – and apparently couldn’t. But they could waive him. Bobcats news release: Charlotte Bobcats President of Basketball Operations Rod Higgins announced today that the team has requested waivers on guard Ben…

  3. Al Harrington practicing with Wizards, to return around All-Star break

    Feb 7, 2014, 2:38 PM EDT

    al harrington wizards

    Al Harrington has played 17 games total in the past two seasons. He had a knee surgery last season that led to a staph infection and kept him out of most of the season for the Magic. He came to the Wizards this season, played in seven games but his knee was still bothering him,…

  4. John Wall’s first move after finding out he’s an All-Star? Calling his mom.

    Jan 31, 2014, 11:40 AM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Los Angeles Clippers

    John Wall is an All-Star. He deserved to be selected as a reserve. He’s been healthy all season (which is a change) and with that has been one of the best point guards in the East averaging 19.8 points and 8.5 assists a game, and while he could be more efficient (true shooting percentage of…

  5. Wizards’ Al Harrington out a month after knee surgery

    Dec 9, 2013, 10:05 PM EDT

    Al harrington

    Al Harrington, who at 33 has been battling knee issues since last season when he has an infection in there, issues that have kept him out since Nov. 12, is now going to be out a while longer. Harrington had knee surgery again on Monday and will be out at least a month, the Wizards…

  6. Al Harrington latest addition to Wizards’ injury list

    Nov 15, 2013, 9:12 PM EDT

    al harrington wizards

    Over the past couple of seasons, injuries have defined the Wizards more than anything else. The talent level hasn’t exactly been amazing, but the team had enough at most positions to at least field a competitive squad if everyone was healthy. It’s shaping up to be the same story this season. Washington has already been…

  7. Russell Westbrook, Nene ejected after shoving each other

    Nov 10, 2013, 10:22 PM EDT

    Russell Westbrook, Nene

    Russell Westbrook and Nene had a run in earlier in the Thunder/Wizards game Sunday night — Nene blocked a Westbrook shot, talked a lot of smack, walked up to do more and the refs went with the lame double technical. Then the incident happened late in the fourth quarter — Westbrook recklessly charged into the…

  8. Al Harrington ‘pulls the chair out’ from Andray Blatche (VIDEO)

    Oct 10, 2013, 1:18 AM EDT

    harrington blatche

    It’s a wily defensive tactic used by veteran players defending the post, and one that was made famous by Rick Mahorn while playing for the Bad Boys era Pistons in the mid-late 80s: Pulling the Chair. It works like this — a post defender places pressure on the offensive player once he gets the ball…

  9. Not exactly breaking news: Nene still battling through pain

    Oct 9, 2013, 2:36 PM EDT

    Nene

    You have to feel for the Wizards and their fans. They entered training camp flush with “we might actually make the playoffs” hopes, something fueled by players and even the owner. The one thing we knew was that they had to just stay healthy, particularly along the front line. Then Emeka Okafor goes down for…

  10. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: The Orlando Magic

    Oct 4, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Tobias Harris

    Last season: It was a season of transition. The Magic started out near .500 (12-13) but when Glen Davis got injured things fell apart. The Magic won 8 games the rest of the year and by the trade deadline they had fully embraced the rebuild, meaning J.J. Redick was the first out the door in…

  11. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: Washington Wizards

    Oct 3, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Bradley Beal, John Wall

    Last season: The Wizards were pretty good when healthy, so they were pretty terrible. John Wall, Nene and Bradley Beal all battled injuries, and Washington finished 29-53. But looking closer, the Wizards actually weren’t half bad when their good players were healthy. With Wall: 24-25 With Wall and Nene: 22-19 With Wall, Nene and Beal:…

  12. Wizards lose Emeka Okafor indefinitely to neck injury

    Sep 18, 2013, 3:00 PM EDT

    Emeka Okafor, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

    Ugh. Just, ugh. The Washington Wizards will be without Emeka Okafor — who was expected to start up front with Nene — indefinitely due to a herniated cervical disc in his neck, reports J. Michael at CSNWashington.com. Okafor had been working out at the Wizards facilities, had a pain in his neck, so the doctors…

  13. Al Harrington talks about bringing winning, veteran attitude to Wizards

    Aug 15, 2013, 1:49 PM EDT

    Al Harrington

    On the court, Washington made a good gamble signing Al Harrington — they get a stretch four they need, a guy who averaged 14.2 points a game two seasons ago, and they get him for the veteran minimum. He may or may not pan out but it was a good risk. But maybe the real…

  14. It’s official: Al Harrington is a Washington Wizard

    Aug 14, 2013, 12:03 PM EDT

    Al Harrington

    We’ve been telling you this is coming for days, but now it is official: Al Harrington is a Wizard. The team made the announcement (CSNWashington.com has some additional details). This is a one-year deal for the veteran minimum. “Al’s all-around game and reputation as a leader make him a solid fit with our team,” Wizards…

  15. Al Harrington says winning wasn’t on the agenda in Orlando last season

    Aug 13, 2013, 2:51 PM EDT

    Al Harrington

    Al Harrington is feeling healthy once again, and should he pass a team physical, he’ll be playing for the Wizards next season. Harrington is a 15-year NBA veteran, and like most in his situation, he wants to play for a team that’s focused on winning instead of rebuilding, as the Orlando Magic were last season.…

  16. If he passes physical, Harrington will sign with Wizards

    Aug 13, 2013, 12:20 PM EDT

    Al Harrington

    Washington has bigs on its roster but nobody they consider a stretch four, and with Nene on the block and the slashing of John Wall into the paint, they need a big to space the floor. So they went hard after Al Harrington when he became a free agent. And if he passes his physical…

  17. Magic let $17 million trade exception received in the Dwight Howard deal expire

    Aug 12, 2013, 2:26 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    When Orlando traded Dwight Howard to the Lakers last summer, the team did so with a long-term vision of entering a full-fledged rebuild in mind. Made simpler, it meant that unless something truly incredible came across the desk of Magic GM Rob Hennigan, that it was fairly likely that the $17.8 million traded player exception…

  18. Report: Al Harrington leaning toward signing with Wizards

    Aug 12, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Al Harrington

    Al Harrington could really help the team that snaps him up — two seasons ago he averaged 14.2 points a game, was a big who could stretch the floor all the way out to the three point line. That is he could help if he’s healthy. That’s the gamble. And it may be the Wizards…

  19. Al Harrington, DeShawn Stevenson officially free agents

    Aug 5, 2013, 1:05 PM EDT

    Al Harrington

    This was a bit of housekeeping. Expected news but now it is official. Al Harrington and DeShawn Stevenson have cleared waivers and are now free agents, reports Marc Stein of ESPN. Again, not a shock as, for example, nobody was going to pick up the $14.7 million left on Harrington’s contract (his buyout with Orlando…

  20. Odom wants to stay in L.A., but does anyone want him?

    Aug 3, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Lamar Odom

    Greg Oden, who last played in the NBA in 2009 and has had multiple major knee surgeries since then, got a contract for next season before Lamar Odom. Which tells you about how far Odom’s stock has fallen. He is battling Antawn Jamison and Al Harrington for the “veteran forward at the end of the…

  21. Magic waive Al Harrington. Now who will pick him up?

    Aug 2, 2013, 5:12 PM EDT

    Al Harrington

    It has been expected for a while — the Magic had been looking to see if they could trade Al Harrington before they just cut him loose, but there wasn’t much of a market. So, Orlando waived him Friday, something that Harrington addressed on Instagram. It’s Official… Orlando has waived me! I just want thanks…

  22. Al Harrington says he dropped 27 pounds, wants to be on a contender

    Jul 30, 2013, 10:18 AM EDT

    Al Harrington

    It started with a common knee surgery that led to a staph infection, which kept him out until after the All Star Game last season. Combine that with the fact Orlando really wanted to play its young guys and you end up with Al Harrington playing in just 10 games for the Magic. And being…

  23. Cousins, Rubio, Shumpert teach you about the finer things in life (VIDEO)

    Jul 23, 2013, 4:41 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v New York Knicks

    Amusing little video from the folks at Relativity Sports — the agency of Dan Fegan and others — that represents a number of elite (and otherwise) NBA players. They got Iman Shumpert, DeMarcus Cousins, Ricky Rubio and more to playoff the “dumb jock” stereotype and go 180 degrees the other way and show them as…

  24. Al Harrington, Hedo Turkoglu don’t expect to remain Magic much longer

    Jul 13, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    Al Harrington, Greivis Vasquez

    We already knew the Magic and Hedo Turkoglu were negotiating a buyout, but Al Harrington could be headed out of Orlando, too. Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel: Harrington and Turkoglu don’t expect the Magic to keep them. Like Turkoglu, Harrington also has a partially guaranteed salary for 2013-14 ($7,148,600, half guaranteed). Unlike Turkoglu, whose…

  25. Pacers’ playoff-best offense disintegrates in Atlanta

    Apr 27, 2013, 10:58 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    Devin Harris needed just 4.5 seconds to slice through the Pacers’ defense for a layup late in the first half, leaving only 1.8 seconds for the Pacers. George Hill launched a desperation heave that obviously missed, but the look was only marginally better than the shots Indiana got most of the game. The Hawks’ offense…
