Alexey Shved

  1. Sixers GM says he never had conversations about acquiring Anthony Bennett

    Aug 27, 2014, 9:51 AM EDT

    Sam Hinkie

    Sixers value a pick in next year’s draft more than they do Bennett at this time.

    Philadelphia could have chosen to waive or buy out these players, but it appears they will remain on the roster.

  4. Let’s give a golf clap to Flip Saunders for handling Love trade well

    Aug 7, 2014, 1:05 PM EDT

    Flip Saunders

    If not an outright win for Saunders, this proposed trade is as close to it as he would get.

    2013 NBA Finals - Game Three

    Some extra news and notes from around the NBA, plus an impressive Kobe tattoo.

  6. Report: Timberwolves trying to trade for Andre Miller, want to involve J.J. Barea

    Feb 18, 2014, 1:01 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Denver Nuggets

    If Andre Miller isn’t returning to the Nuggets, they might as well trade him. Miller, sent away from the team after feuding with Denver coach Brian Shaw, definitely wants a trade and a chance to play somewhere. The Nuggets should resist any inclination to be petty, and they should accommodate him. There are a number…

  7. Alexey Shved with a poster dunk? We got that. (VIDEO)

    Feb 11, 2014, 8:44 AM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Oklahoma City Thunder

    Not a whole lot went right for the Minnesota Timberwolves against the Rockets Monday night, and it wasn’t a great night for Alexey Shved. But he did do this. While wearing a mask. Terrence Jones tries to rotate over to help, but he is late and just ends up in the picture. Not sure I…

  8. Love puts up a big line, but balanced Rockets keep rolling to sixth straight win

    Feb 11, 2014, 1:30 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Minnesota Timberwolves

    Just before the All-Star break and a celebration of the game’s biggest names we bring you this reminder: Basketball is still a team game. The Timberwolves’ Kevin Love was the best scorer on the floor Monday night when Houston came to Minnesota. With no Kevin Martin (thumb) and no Nikola Pekovic it puts a lot…

  9. Rumor: Kings interested in possible Derrick Williams trade

    Nov 19, 2013, 11:06 AM EDT

    Derrick Williams

    This is not something likely go down in the near future if it goes down at all, so just put this in your “things that could happen after Christmas or close to the deadline” file. We’ve told you before that the Minnesota Timberwolves are looking to trade Derrick Williams. Flip Saunders and the rest of…

  10. Report: Knicks’ long-term plan is to keep ‘Melo then recruit Kevin Love

    Nov 12, 2013, 6:13 PM EDT

    Kevin Love, Corey Brewer

    We at PBT danced around this a little earlier talking about how Minnesota is willing to make moves to win now in an effort to put a winner around Kevin Love so he will not leave. It’s a long, long ways off, but in the summer of 2015 Love will be the premiere free agent.…

  11. Report: Minnesota willing to move Derrick Williams, Alexey Shved for veterans

    Nov 12, 2013, 12:01 PM EDT

    Derrick Williams

    Derrick Williams and Alexey Shved are reportedly on the market but this is all about Kevin Love. If that sounds strange, follow along here. Minnesota is entering a “win now” phase and they are off to a nice 5-3 start this season thanks to their expected strong offense and a better than expected defense. They…

  12. PBT Roundtable: Who is your League Pass team this season?

    Oct 24, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    JaVale McGee

    Each week the PBT writers sit at a virtual roundtable, just like the knights of King Arthur, drink mead and discuss the NBA topic of the day. This week’s question: Who is going to be your League Pass team this season (the team outside the brightest spotlights that you keep finding yourself drawn to when there are…

  13. Timberwolves trying to get Alexey Shved to smile more

    Oct 7, 2013, 12:53 PM EDT

    Alexey Shved

    The Russian culture is not one of smiles — the Moscow Times traces it back to the Cold War and before, noting that generations were raised about how Americans had insincere smiles. The stereotypical Russian disposition comes off as a little more austere. Alexey Shved is Russian, but the Minnesota backup point guard plays on…

  14. Timberwolves’ Chase Budinger suffers serious knee injury

    Sep 27, 2013, 1:03 PM EDT

    Chase Budinger, Taj Gibson

    The injury bug just will not leave the Minnesota Timberwolves alone. A season after they lost Kevin Love for much of the year when he broke his hand twice, and after Ricky Rubio missed part of the season (and wasn’t himself for much of it) recovering from a major knee injury comes this news: Chase…

  15. Luke Ridnour traded from Timberwolves to Bucks

    Jul 11, 2013, 10:30 AM EDT

    Ridnour_Wolves

    We don’t know who the starting point guard in Milwaukee will be next season — Jeff Teague just signed a four-year, $32 million offer sheet that the Hawks can match; plus the Bucks still have the rights to Brandon Jennings (a restricted free agent). However, we know who the backup point guard will be. Luke…

  18. Damian Lillard, Anthony Davis headline NBA All-Rookie Team

    May 14, 2013, 2:39 PM EDT

    APTOPIX Rookie of Year Basketball

    It was an interesting year for rookies. Damian Lillard stood out as the point guard Portland needed, but he had the advantage of talent around him that other promising players (Anthony Davis, Andre Drummond) did not. Then there were good young players like Jonas Valanciunas flying under the radar in Toronto. So picking the NBA…

  19. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Kings take Heat two overtimes

    Feb 27, 2013, 8:41 AM EDT

    LeBron James,

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while scrolling through the Florida Man twitter feed…. Heat 141, Kings 129 (2OT): What looked like a blowout on paper ended up being the best game of the night. The Kings may deny it was a moral victory for them, but it was.…

  20. Andrei Kirilenko bows out of qualifying, next Olympics for Russia

    Feb 22, 2013, 1:03 PM EDT

    Russian forward Andrey Kirilenko scores

    Russia brought a strong team to London — led by Andrei Kirilenko and Alexey Shved, with the very respected Dave Blatt as coach, the Russians took home the bronze medal. But they are going to have a very different team in Rio. First Blatt left the team and now Kirilenko is saying he is going…

    BBVA Rising Stars Challenge

    The rosters have been set for the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge, the game featuring the league’s top rookies and sophomores that will kick off the All-Star weekend festivities on Friday, Feb. 15. Teams were drafted from the pool of available players by TNT analysts Shaquille O’Neal and Charles Barkley, with Minnesota’s Ricky Rubio and Sacramento’s…

  22. Irving, Lillard lead selections for All-Star Rising Stars (rookie/sophomore game)

    Jan 30, 2013, 4:17 PM EDT

    BBVA Rising Stars Challenge

    Friday night of All-Star weekend is when the NBA likes to show off it’s future All-Stars. Or, at least the guys who seem like they are going to stick around the league for a while. It’s the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge — what the rest of us still call the rookie/sophomore game. Although for the…
