The fewer the minutes for a team’s best players, the more likely teams are to be tanking and vice versa. Except in Detroit.

Joe Dumars might not be replaced by Isiah Thomas, but it still seems unlikely Dumars will return next season as the Detroit Pistons’ general manager. Dumars is in the final season of his contract. Ownership superseded him to fire his chosen head coach. And he didn’t make a move at the trade deadline. All signs…

The PBT power rankings have returned with not a lot of change from last week — Miami, Indiana, San Antonio and Oklahoma City are the top four (in whatever order you wish) then there is a gap to the Clippers, Rockets and teams trying to knock on that door. Meanwhile the Sixers look like they…

A year ago, the Charlotte Bobcats tried to trade Ben Gordon – and apparently couldn’t. A week ago, they tried to buy out Gordon – and apparently couldn’t. But they could waive him. Bobcats news release: Charlotte Bobcats President of Basketball Operations Rod Higgins announced today that the team has requested waivers on guard Ben…

This should not come as a surprise. The Charlotte Bobcats are in talks to buyout the $13.2 million contract of Ben Gordon, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. Yes, you read that right, Gordon is making north of $13 million this season — more than Stephen Curry or Tony Parker or a host of other…

It’s the one day on the NBA calendar you know is going to be like a roller coaster — rumors are going to fly, deals are going to appear close then fall apart, complete fabrications will fascinate a fan base who will then blame a GM for not making them reality, and in the end…

Two years ago, the Pistons traded Ben Gordon and a first-round pick for Corey Maggette. The players were basically irrelevant, but their contracts were key. Because Maggette’s expired a year sooner, the Pistons got cap space last summer rather than in the upcoming summer. They, of course, used it to sign Josh Smith to a…

Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak is trying. He doesn’t want to lose Pau Gasol for nothing. The Lakers are talking to teams about moving Gasol at the trade deadline. However, finding a team that wants to rent a guy making $19.3 million (he is a free agent after this season) and give the Lakers anything of…

One of the most obvious trade candidates around the NBA is Evan Turner. Both a talented young player on an expiring contract and not so good and so cheap that his current team wants to keep him, Tuner would fit in a variety of potential deals. There’s only one hitch. The Philadelphia 76ers have yet…

Josh Smith is having the worst season of his career. Playing far too much small forward, a position he can handle only in select matchups, his defense has really fallen off. Though Smith defends power forwards well, his his lack of speed on the perimeter kills his ability to chase wings around screens. He’s also…

The Pistons have a big-man problem. They have three good bigs – Josh Smith, Greg Monroe and Andre Drummond – who start but have, so far, fit poorly together. The problem isn’t a single one of them. Rather, it’s an issue of fit. When all three play: Offensive rating: 104.3 Defensive rating: 112.2 Net rating:…
