    Rasheed Wallace Pistons

    Rasheed Wallace’s reported comeback to the NBA remains in limbo. He worked out for the Heat, that’s all we know about it.

  6. Video: J-Smoove throws it down on Serge Ibaka

    Mar 4, 2012, 8:00 AM EST

    Josh Smith

    Josh Smith is an underrated in game dunker — he doesn’t get as many chances as he should in the Hawks offense, but the man can be fierce. Just ask Serge Ibaka. J-Smove got up and threw it down on Ibaka during the Hawks upset win over the Thunder Saturday. It was a big dunk…

    Boston Celtics v Atlanta Hawks

    From ESPN.com’s Marc Stein: Keep an eye on Atlanta Hawks guard Kirk Hinrich. If the Lakers can’t make a splashy move for the elite point guard they crave — a long shot at best at this point — and can’t swing a deal for top fallback choice Ramon Sessions, taking Hinrich and his $8.1 million salary…
