  1. Report: Warriors, Bogut talking contract extension

    Oct 16, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Andrew Bogut

    Last season in the playoffs the Warriors defense was 7.8 points per 100 possessions better when Bogut was on the court and was the anchor in the paint. Look at it this way: When Bogut was on the court the Warriors defense was close to the Bulls regular season defensive numbers, when he sat they…

  2. Tuesday And-1 Links: Dwyane Wade releasing documentary on Heat’s title run

    Oct 15, 2013, 8:35 PM EST

    Heat's Wade sits with the Larry O'Brien Trophy after his team defeated the Spurs in Game 7 to win their NBA Finals basketball playoff in Miami

    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 more than Bostonites love to sing along with Neil Diamond…. • If you can’t…

  3. Cavaliers still searching for small forward to replace that guy who left town

    Oct 14, 2013, 10:33 AM EST

    Earl Clark, Miroslav Raduljica

    Since LeBron James bolted Cleveland for Miami, the small forward spot has been a black hole for the Cavaliers. There was Jamario Moon. Then Omri Casspi. Then Alonzo Gee, who is still on the roster. Now Earl Clark is getting a shot. Not exactly a murderer’s row. The Cavaliers have built a team they like…

  4. Cavaliers’ Tyler Zeller had emergency appendectomy Friday

    Oct 12, 2013, 10:59 AM EST

    Tyler Zeller

    Tyler Zeller didn’t play for the Cavaliers Friday night and at the time it was listed as due to the strained hip flexor that he has battled through camp. But instead he was having an emergency appendectomy — having his appendix removed — tweets Cavaliers radio play-by-play announcer John Michael. This is a common operation…

  5. Karl Malone doesn’t bring his gun, bow to Jazz practice. So he can focus.

    Oct 10, 2013, 3:44 PM EST

    Karl Malone

    Karl Malone is back working with the Utah Jazz as a special assistant coach — Derrick Favors, Enes Kanter and the rest of the young Jazz front line are now learning the tricks of the Mailman. And Malone is focused on that — at least until next month and his annual hunting trip, he told…

  6. Kendrick Perkins says he looked himself in the mirror after last playoffs

    Oct 9, 2013, 5:40 PM EST

    Kendrick Perkins

    Kendrick Perkins is who Kendrick Perkins is. After a decade in the league we all have a pretty good idea what that is. But after a rough playoffs last season — 2.2 points a game on 26.3 percent shooting with a PER of -0.6 — he became a scapegoat for frustrated Thunder fans. Why would…

  7. Jarrett Jack’s behind-the-back assist for Anthony Bennett’s first NBA bucket (VIDEO)

    Oct 9, 2013, 11:03 AM EST

    Anthony Bennett

    Jarrett Jack is going to win over a lot of people in Cleveland — he is fun to watch and a great guard to have coming in off the bench (the Warriors will miss him). Among those new fans — Anthony Bennett. The No. 1 overall pick from last season got his first NBA points…

  8. Doug Collins says he is done coaching, the business has changed

    Oct 8, 2013, 7:45 PM EST

    Doug Collins

    Doug Collins will be back on your television this year, working for ABC/ESPN as an analyst before games and also doing some color commentary. He was in Philadelphia the last three years including this past season when, as he put it, the Sixers swung for the fences with Andrew Bynum. And whiffed. It was a…

  9. Dwight Howard responds to Kareem’s attack on his game, mental fortitude

    Oct 4, 2013, 4:21 PM EST

    Houston Rockets Introduce Dwight Howard

    We need some games soon, because I am weary of talking about Dwight Howard leaving the Lakers. But not everyone is done talking about it — Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was talking about it. Kareem and Howard have never meshed well. Which is putting it kindly. They are civil, but very different people with different views on…

  10. Cavaliers’ Bennett, Varejao cleared for basketball activities

    Oct 1, 2013, 11:51 AM EST

    Anthony Bennett

    We have some rare good injury news out of a training camp: The Cleveland Cavalier’s No. 1 pick Anthony Bennett and the guy he may someday replace in the lineup, Anderson Varejao, both have been fully cleared for basketball activities entering training camp. This was expected, but now it is official. Bennett had shoulder surgery…

  11. Chase Budinger has knee surgery, out indefinitely

    Oct 1, 2013, 11:14 AM EST

    Chase Budinger, Joakim Noah

    In today’s NBA teams are hesitant to give timelines for injury recovery. You can thank Andrew Bynum and Derrick Rose for that; teams are trying to avoid a public relations hit with their fans. Following reports of cartilage damage that cause swelling in his knee, Chase Budinger had knee surgery on Monday and  had his…

  12. Andrew Bynum cut his hair and it looks… normal

    Sep 30, 2013, 10:02 PM EST

    via @Cavs

    While we may be skeptical about when he plays (and how well he plays if/when he does) there are certainly still good things for our entertainment dollar having Andrew Bynum in the NBA. Primarily his wild hair choices. Except he showed up to Cavaliers media day on Monday looking all corporate and normal. What’s next?…

  13. Andrew Bynum ramping up activity but no timetable. That sounds familiar.

    Sep 30, 2013, 3:56 PM EST

    Andrew Bynum

    “I feel pretty good and I am definitely getting better… I think if all the beans were on the table, I would be out there (playing right now).” That’s Andrew Bynum from the Sixers training camp last year, on Oct. 9 to be exact. We bring you that as a bit of context for the…

  14. Sixers’ managing owner defends decision to trade for Andrew Bynum

    Sep 29, 2013, 9:30 PM EST

    Newly-acquired Philadelphia 76ers player Bynum smiles during a news conference at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia

    When the Sixers traded for Andrew Bynum before the beginning of last season, it appeared to be a calculated risk worth taking at the time. Bynum was coming off of an All-Star season where he averaged a career-best 18.7 points and 11.8 rebounds, and despite his history of injury, the team wasn’t going anywhere with…

  15. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: Cleveland Cavaliers

    Sep 26, 2013, 8:45 AM EST

    Kyrie Irving

    Last season: Kyrie Irving became the youngest All-Star since LeBron James, but the Cavaliers were decidedly awful throughout the year, finishing 24-58. Only the Bobcats were worse both offensively and defensively, Injuries took a major toll (more on that below), but the season never looked promising at any point, regardless. On the bright side, Dion…

  16. Lakers GM says expect more Pau Gasol… and eventually Kobe

    Sep 25, 2013, 4:34 PM EST

    Pau Gasol Kobe Bryant

    Kobe Bryant will be back when he’s back, and when he is you can expect him to play like Kobe Bryant — he’s not changing. But what else can you expect from the Lakers this season? What about next summer? Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak met with the media on Wednesday and basically reiterated previous answers…

  17. No, still no timetable for Andrew Bynum. What, you expected one?

    Sep 24, 2013, 12:23 PM EST

    Andrew Bynum

    Andrew Bynum on the court and playing anywhere near his old self would be a game changer for the Cavaliers. That’s not really in doubt. Bynum getting on the court and playing like his old self is where the doubt comes in. After watching the public relations train wreck that was Philadelphia last season, the…

  18. Russell Westbrook not yet cleared for basketball activity

    Sep 24, 2013, 10:49 AM EST

    Houston Rockets v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game Two

    Exactly when Russell Westbrook will be back from the torn meniscus that ended his — and essentially Oklahoma City’s — playoff run is not clear. The Thunder are part of the NBA’s new “we don’t give timelines” trend (which became popular in the wake of Andrew Bynum and Derrick Rose last season). But we know…

  19. Still no official timeline for Gallinari return in Denver

    Sep 20, 2013, 4:45 PM EST

    Denver Nuggets forward Gallinari reacts after making a shot during the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City

    This summer Danilo Gallinari has been doing his knee rehab in Italy, because… well, if you could choose where to do your knee rehab work wouldn’t you choose Italy? Gallinari partially tore his ACL back on April 4, and on that day the Denver Nuggets playoff dreams tore as well. When he returns he will…

  20. Cavs’ Varejao says he is at 70 percent, will be ready for camp

    Sep 20, 2013, 10:42 AM EST

    Anderson Varejao

    Last season Anderson Varejao played in 25 games, his health slowed by blood clots in his leg. He spent last season and most of this summer (except when he was getting married) working on getting healthy. Which would be nice — 31 games is the most Varejao has played in a season the last three.…

  21. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: Philadelphia 76ers

    Sep 20, 2013, 10:02 AM EST

    Sam Hinkie, Nerlens Noel

    Last season: The 76ers went 34-48, the 11th time in the last 12 seasons they won between 33 and 48 games. They made the playoffs most seasons during that span, but they only one two postseason series. With the emergence of the NBA’s second-youngest All-Star last year, Jrue Holiday, Philadelphia seemed like it had a…

  22. Tristan Thompson says switching shooting hands is working out well

    Sep 19, 2013, 5:07 PM EST

    Tristan Thompson, Kyrie Irving

    It’s one of the more bizarre off-season story lines — Cleveland’s Tristan Thompson decided to switch his shooting hands. His first two seasons in the league he has been left handed and last season he shot 48 percent overall, 39.7 percent beyond five feet from the rim and 60.8 percent from the free throw line.…

  23. Report: Andrew Bynum ‘nowhere near ready,’ likely to miss preseason

    Sep 18, 2013, 12:16 AM EST

    Andrew Bynum

    The Cavaliers took a chance on Andrew Bynum, but it was a small one considering that the team signed him to a contract that is only guaranteed for $6 million, and doesn’t become fully guaranteed until after January 10. There would seem to be an incentive for Bynum to get back on the court for…

  24. Reports: Varejao, Bennett healthy for Cavaliers

    Sep 16, 2013, 2:50 AM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Milwaukee Bucks

    Cleveland has its sights set on one of the last couple playoff spots in the East next season. To get there is going to take more than just the “Kyrie Irving Show” — he’s going to need help. Particularly help along the front line. Enter Anderson Varejao and Anthony Bennett. Reports have both power forwards…

  25. Report: Anderson Varejao cleared to return in time for training camp

    Sep 14, 2013, 9:30 PM EST

    Image (1) varejao-thumb-250x218-21449.jpg for post 4424

    Anderson Varejao was having his best season statistically last year, until a knee injury forced him out of action in December, and then the ensuing blood clot that developed ended his season entirely. Now comes word that he’s been medically cleared in time for the start of training camp in a few weeks, but questions…
