    Detroit Pistons v Orlando Magic

    Orlando reportedly plans to send former Pistons point guard to D-League

  2. PBT Power Rankings: After summer shakeups, Spurs still team to beat

    Jul 28, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v San Antonio Spurs - Game Five

    After all the players shifts this summer, the top three teams in the power rankings remain unchanged from the last one lst year.

  3. Magic sign second-rounder Devyn Marble to three-year contract

    Jul 24, 2014, 1:48 PM EDT

    Roy Devyn Marble

  4. Head scratching report: Magic reach terms with Ben Gordon for two-year $9 million deal

    Jul 2, 2014, 1:49 PM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Phoenix Suns

    Why the Magic gave a guy who should get a one-year minimum deal this much money is a mystery.

  5. Extra Pass: Are the Detroit Pistons putting a new twist on tanking or being lousy?

    Mar 10, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Greg Monroe, Andre Drummond, Josh Smith, Maurice Cheeks

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

  6. Report: Joe Dumars, frustrated with criticism, expected to be out as Pistons’ general manager

    Mar 5, 2014, 11:07 AM EDT

    Joe Dumars

    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 Ownership superseded him to fire his chosen head coach.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…

  7. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Miami putting its foot down on the gas

    Mar 3, 2014, 3:43 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks

    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…

  8. Bobcats waive Ben Gordon after deadline for him to join playoff roster

    Mar 2, 2014, 3:30 PM EDT

    Ersan Ilyasova, Ben Gordon

    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…

  9. Report: Bobcats in buyout talks with Ben Gordon

    Feb 21, 2014, 3:09 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Charlotte Bobcats

    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…

  10. NBA Trade Deadline Tracker: All the trades, rumors, analysis, fun in one place

    Feb 20, 2014, 3:00 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Brooklyn Nets

    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…

  11. Report: Pistons shopping Josh Smith, want more than expiring contract

    Feb 20, 2014, 12:30 PM EDT

    Josh Smith, Brandan Wright

    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…

  12. Pau Gasol to Charlotte? That’s not likely, nor is any other Pau Gasol trade

    Feb 18, 2014, 12:34 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    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…

  13. Report: Charlotte Bobcats have inquired about Evan Turner

    Feb 4, 2014, 4:32 PM EDT

    Evan Turner, Jeff Adrien

    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…

  14. Report: Pistons would trade Josh Smith if they could

    Jan 31, 2014, 7:48 PM EDT

    Josh Smith, Brandan Wright

    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…

  15. Report: Pistons not even considering trading Greg Monroe

    Jan 10, 2014, 9:45 AM EDT

    Jonas Valanciunas, Amir Johnson, Greg Monroe

    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:…

  16. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: The Charlotte Bobcats

    Oct 2, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Al Jefferson

    Last season: Remember when the Bobcats started the season out 7-5 and we all kind of did a double take? That really happened, there was a moment where we wondered if this team wasn’t as terrible as we all thought. Then reality hit. The Bobcats went 14-56 the rest of the season. Charlotte had the…

  17. Report: Pistons ready to make Josh Smith a big offer

    Jul 1, 2013, 12:49 AM EDT

    Josh Smith, Andre Drummond

    Joe Dumars has shown he’ll strike quickly to get the players he wants, price be darned. Sometimes, that means getting Chauncey Billups. Other times, the result is Ben Gordon and Charlie Villanueva. Dumars appears to be going full speed ahead to get his man again. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports: Detroit Pistons general manager Joe…

  18. Gerald Henderson says he wants to re-sign with Bobcats

    Mar 29, 2013, 9:39 AM EDT

    Gerald Henderson, Tobias Harris, Maurice Harkless, Kyle O'Quinn, Jameer Nelson

    Gerald Henderson, in his fourth year, is having his best season, and it’s good timing. This summer, he’ll be a free agent, likely a restricted one. Coming off his rookie-scale deal, Henderson has his first chance to secure a big medium contract. But he hinted he’s not thinking about only money. Henderson, via Rick Bonnell…

  19. Why no blockbusters at NBA trade deadline? Here are three reasons.

    Feb 21, 2013, 10:01 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    The narrative of the NBA Trade Deadline 2013 is going to be that it was a dud. Fans seemed to think the Lakers were going to trade Dwight Howard. Or the Celtics were going to blow it up and trade Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett. The fans expected blockbusters and some of the national media…

  20. PBT’s trade deadline tracker — up to minute news, analysis

    Feb 21, 2013, 3:00 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Indiana Pacers - Game Two

    Trade deadline day in the NBA can be ridiculously hard to keep up with as reality and rumor collide. We understand. That’s why we’re here to help. This is our trade deadline day deal tracker — the one place where all the NBA’s trade deadline news and rumors will be. Plus you get our thoughts…

  21. Trade Rumor Roundup: As deadline nears, lots of questions remain

    Feb 21, 2013, 2:16 AM EDT

    Josh Smith

    It is now just a little less than 13 hours until the NBA trade deadline and we have had all of one whopping trade. Which means it’s going to be a very busy Thursday… probably. There are going to be deals, guys we expect to get dealt will get dealt, but there may be fewer…

  22. Trade rumor roundup: Lots of talk Tuesday, no action

    Feb 20, 2013, 2:10 AM EDT

    Josh Smith

    We warned you this could be a slow trade deadline — with the new CBA kicking in fully next summer teams are concerned about both the more regressive tax and the repeater taxes for going over the luxury tax line. Meaning teams that might normally take on more salary simply are hesitant now. Here is…

  23. Fear of tax may make this slower-than-usual trade deadline

    Feb 19, 2013, 7:59 AM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Phoenix Suns

    All-Star weekend usually signals the official start of a frenzied week of rumors and eventually trades in the NBA. Everybody is in town — this year Houston — and general managers are talking face-to-face rather than texting and by Tuesday trades are picking up steam. But maybe not this year. If there was a buzz…

  24. Report: Increasingly desperate Nets now eye J.J. Hickson

    Feb 15, 2013, 5:18 PM EDT

    J.J. Hickson

    General Manager Billy King really wants to get some help at the four spot for his Nets. Of course, that’s all about just helping his team out and has nothing to do with him being in the last year of his contact and his expensive team not impressing much. It’s not about saving his job.…
