Miami has targeted Deng from the beginning of free agency, and he’s believed to be out of the team’s price range. But Riley’s giving it a shot.

A lot of dominoes will fall once LeBron and ‘Melo make up their minds.

Why the Magic gave a guy who should get a one-year minimum deal this much money is a mystery.
Jul 2, 2014, 10:22 AM EDT
That price tag is pretty steep for a role player.

Rondo complements the way fans have supported the Celtics, but it hasn’t been a real factor in players choosing to sign in Boston.

I don’t think the Philadelphia 76ers are going to go 0-36 to end the season. They are going to get one more win. But when? Most nights they are overmatched — the other team is just more talented. That’s why they lost game 26 in a row Thursday night to the Houston Rockets, 120-98. The…

San Antonio has won 13 in a row, they remain in the top spot, Philly has lost 24 in a row and remains in the bottom slot. Hey, guess which two teams play this week?

Ricky Rubio and Kevin Love work well together lifting Timberwolves past Mavericks. Also, Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks just keep on rolling.

Gerald Wallace, who brought a declining game but genuine nightly effort to the Celtics, has a torn meniscus and is likely done for the season. That is what coach Brad Stevens announced Friday, reports A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com. Stevens said Wallace had been playing through pain for some time and an MRI discovered the…

It’s not about this season, it’s about the next five or 10 in Boston. So with Rajon Rondo sore — he missed practice on Thursday because of it, he’s been a busy man since his return — it is very possible he doesn’t play on Friday. Teams want to take care of their franchise face…

Losing to the Boston Celtics isn’t embarrassing. Boston is 15-29 this season – hardly great, but definitely not a record indicative of a team that can’t compete. But losing to the Celtics when they don’t have Rajon Rando, Avery Bradley and Jerryd Bayless? When they outscore you by four points in the six minutes their…

There haven’t been a lot of bright spots in the Celtics’ season, Avery Bradley has been one of them — healthy in his fourth NBA season he has broken out to average 14.8 points a game, shoot 36.5 percent from three and as always be a pesky, impressive defender on the perimeter. But now he…

Since coming over from Memphis Jerryd Bayless has averaged almost 20 minutes a night for Boston, averaging 7.1 points (on just 38 percent shooting) and three assists a night. However Bayless sprained his toe, is out Tuesday night against Miami and will be out 7-10 days, reports A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com. Right now Rajon…

I’m feeling a little prophetic. It was late in the fourth quarter Friday night and Boston’s Jeff Green had just made a nice play, driving toward the rim and hitting the little five-foot running jumper to tie the game against Golden State at 97-97. But that left 11 seconds for the Warriors and I had…

When Masai Ujiri jumped from the Denver Nuggets to the Toronto Raptors to take over as general manager, the objective was clear. Ujiri was to do what he does best: tear it down, and try to salvage as much value as possible from the mistakes made by the previous regime. Ujiri hasn’t failed to live…

You may consider this curious timing to take up for Mike D’Antoni, considering his Lakers just gave up 137 points at home to a Denver Nuggets team that can best be described as “meh.” Believe it or not, though, pulling the wool over your eyes isn’t my intention here. Let’s be truthful: D’Antoni’s teams really…

The Celtics have been exceeding expectations this season under new head coach Brad Stevens, and are currently in line for the four seed in the Eastern Conference playoff picture despite the team’s losing record. Things would appear to be only getting better with the addition of All-Star point guard Rajon Rondo to the lineup, considering…
