  2. Tyreke Evans has sprained ankle, out at least a week

    Dec 9, 2013, 8:24 PM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans v Los Angeles Lakers

    Tyreke Evans drove to attack Kevin Durant off the dribble Friday night — Evans had been very aggressive all game, largely carrying the reserves in the first half — he went up for the shot and when he can down he sprained his ankle. That sprain is going to keep him out a week, maybe…

  3. Anthony Davis talks Pelican chemistry, his game and NBA 2K14

    Oct 31, 2013, 4:30 PM EDT

    Anthony Davis

    While you were looking at Dwight Howard or Derrick Rose this preseason, the New Orleans Pelicans put together a nice little 7-1 record. Then on opening night the Pelicans had a 16-point second half lead against the contending Pacers, a lead the more experienced Pacers were able to make evaporate behind some strong play from…

  4. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: The New Orleans Pelicans

    Oct 25, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Anthony Davis

    Last season: New Orleans final season as the Hornets wasn’t pretty. Eric Gordon was out much of the year, Anthony Davis showed promise but looked like a rookie at times, Austin Rivers looked like a mistake, they blew a 25-point lead to the Lakers, and they ended the season with 27 wins without even a…

  5. Pelicans’ Williams plans to bring Tyreke Evans off the bench

    Sep 30, 2013, 1:58 PM EDT

    Tyreke Evans

    It’s a stunning development — we have actual on-the-court basketball news out of NBA media day. It may be a first in a day usually reserved for positive stories and fluff. Pelicans coach Monty Williams said he plans to bring Tyreke Evans in off the bench as a sixth man, at least initially. That according…

  6. Greg Stiemsma wants Pelicans starting center job

    Sep 10, 2013, 4:56 PM EDT

    Greg Stiemsma

    New Orleans coach Monty Williams has some rotation decisions to make. Such as whether to start Tyreke Evans at the three (the most expected outcome) or have him come off the bench as a sixth man (then you start Al-Farouq Aminu or Anthony Morrow at the three). Then there is the frontcourt. Do you start…

  7. Pelicans’ Darius Miller out 8-12 weeks following foot surgery

    Sep 9, 2013, 7:01 PM EDT

    Darius Miller,

    Darius Miller, fresh off his rookie season and one of the young players working to be part of the future in New Orleans, has suffered a big setback. He had a stress fracture in his foot that needed to be surgically repaired, and he is out for eight to 12 weeks the team announced. That…

  8. Josh Childress working out for Pelicans, trying to land spot

    Aug 20, 2013, 3:12 PM EDT

    Josh Childress, Draymond Green

    There is not much room in the rotation, but there is room on the roster in New Orleans — they have only 13 spots filled. Which leads us to this news about swingman Josh Childress: Josh Childress is working out in New Orleans for the Pelicans this week, agent Chris Emens told HoopsHype. po.st/vREYT9— HoopsHype…

    Jul 23, 2013, 12:38 AM EDT

    NBCSports.com

    LAS VEGAS – The Warriors wrapped up Las Vegas Summer League on Monday with a 91-77 win over the Suns to take home the first ever championship trophy in the event’s history. Undrafted rookie Ian Clark was named the game’s Most Valuable Player, after putting on a red-hot shooting display that netted him a game-high…

    Jul 9, 2013, 8:10 PM EDT

    Image (1) nba_g_morrow_200-thumb-250x375-18041.jpg for post 3629

    The Pelicans have arguably the game’s best stretch four in Ryan Anderson on the roster, but you can never have enough shooting. Never. Enter Anthony Morrow. The guy with the career 42.4 percent three point shooting percentage (but that has been lower the past couple seasons) has agreed to be a gun slinger off the…

  11. Nuggets lose Gallinari, but Iguodala’s game-winner gives them win over Mavericks

    Apr 5, 2013, 12:40 AM EDT

    Danilo Gallinari, Chris Kaman, Shawn Marion

    Andre Iguodala‘s driving layup with under three seconds remaining gave the Nuggets their 19th consecutive home victory on Thursday, 95-94 over a Mavericks team that had plenty of chances. The win was a good one for Denver, considering the circumstances. The Nuggets, already without starting point guard Ty Lawson due to a plantar fascia injury,…

  12. Winners and Losers from the Trade Deadline

    Feb 21, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Josh Smith

    A good chunk of trades went down before the trade deadline, but it’s the deals that didn’t get made that loom large. Josh Smith is still an Atlanta Hawk, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce are still Boston Celtics, Dwight Howard is still a Laker, Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap are still on the Jazz…you get…

  13. Hakim Warrick to Orlando headlines small trades at deadline

    Feb 21, 2013, 5:28 PM EDT

    Hakim Warrick, Jason Thompson

    We didn’t get any blockbuster trades at this year’s NBA trading deadline. We saw Rudy Gay moved a few weeks before and J.J. Redick did get moved just before the deadline. But a lot of what happened at the deadline was smaller deals that slid under the radar. Here is a quick wrap-up of those…

  15. NBA Power Rankings: Finals rematch Thursday could be finals preview

    Feb 11, 2013, 9:30 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Oklahoma City Thunder

    Finally, here are the delayed regular Monday PBT NBA power rankings. We said this a lot during the NBA finals last year — if we see the Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder face off in three of the next five NBA finals it shouldn’t be a shock. This season looks more and more like…

  16. NBA Power Rankings: Spurs still riding along in top slot

    Feb 4, 2013, 2:46 PM EDT

    Tim Duncan, Tony Parker

    Not a lot of changes at the very top, although we see the Knicks and Nuggets making climbs with winning streaks. At the bottom the Magic have lost 9 in a row, lost Big Baby for the season and are about to trade their best shooter in the next couple of weeks. Do they ever…

  18. The 2012-2013 All-Breakout Team

    Oct 25, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Sacramento Kings

    Last season, Jeremy Lin coming out of nowhere (and the ensuing Linsanity) was the perfect headlining story for a crazy, compacted season. Lin was absolutely the breakout star of the year, but we also saw Ersanity (Ersan Ilyasaova) become a thing — at least in Milwaukee, anyway. And Kevin Love‘s nightly performances? Just good old-fashioned…

  19. GM Survey: Where Darko Milicic is underrated and Carmelo Anthony is MVP

    Oct 22, 2012, 5:30 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    Everyone has that buddy that acts perfectly logical and sane, but forces you to reevaluate your friendship after he blurts out something like, “Carlos Boozer is going to win MVP this year!” Well, good news everyone: NBA General Managers are just like you, me, and your friend you can no longer take seriously. Let’s take…

  20. NBA Season Preview: Atlanta Hawks

    Oct 4, 2012, 3:58 PM EDT

    Josh Smith

    Last season: Just another Hawks season. That’s the best way to put it after a year where despite losing Al Horford for the vast majority of the season, Atlanta managed to land a top four seed in the East. They had this bizarro season underneath the headline of “Boring.” They would look awesome one night,…

  21. Josh Smith says no more threes, call him “mid-range shawty”

    Oct 3, 2012, 2:36 AM EDT

    Josh Smith

    Among the training camp clichés that seem never pan out to be true — “we’re going to play faster this year” and “Player X has shot 500 jump shots a day this summer” are our favorites — is this classic from Atlanta: Josh Smith says he will be better about his shot selection. This year…

  22. NBA Season Preview: Brooklyn Nets

    Sep 20, 2012, 8:00 AM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v Atlanta Hawks

    Last Season: I want you to imagine the most you’ve ever vomited. Like, literally, the greatest single bout of nauseated vomiting you’ve ever gone through. I want you to think about what you ate, what it smelled like, that cold, hard porcelain  or unfeeling trash can that embraced you after the day-old shellfish or that…

  23. James Anderson is apparently going to be a Hawk

    Aug 25, 2012, 7:00 PM EDT

    James Anderson, Vince Carter, Garret Siler

    There were high hopes for James Anderson with the Spurs when he was drafted, but he just never could fit. Not everyone can mesh with the Spurs’ approach, and it’s hard to see whether it’s a talent or fit issue, though there are certainly considerable gaps in his game. And as a free agent, it…

  25. Joe Johnson trade to Nets nearly complete, Brooklyn out of Dwight Howard chase

    Jul 2, 2012, 6:04 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    The Nets seem to be thinking about having an interesting team to open the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn with next season, the years beyond that be damned. And Dwight Howard be damned. He has said Brooklyn is the place he wants to be but when this trade for Joe Johnson goes through they would be…
