  1. Ray Allen chase involves Celtics, Heat, Clippers, Grizzlies

    Jul 3, 2012, 9:45 AM EDT

    Ray Allen, Nick Young

    Ray Allen may be 36 and have to have off-season ankle surgery after fighting through bone spurs all playoffs long, but that’s not slowing teams down much. The chase for Ray Allen seems to be a four team race, reports David Aldridge of NBA.com — Boston, Memphis, Clippers, Miami. It really comes down to what…

  2. Clippers ready offers to Jamal Crawford, Chauncey Billups

    Jul 3, 2012, 8:02 AM EDT

    Jamal Crawford

    The Clippers need a two guard who can help them diversify their offense (we saw what happened when the Spurs stifled Chris Paul in the playoffs, it wasn’t pretty). Jamal Crawford can do that, even if last year’s Crawford should not be confused with the Sixth Man of the Year version. On another note, Paul…

  3. Kobe, LeBron lead list of nine who secured berths on Team USA

    Jul 2, 2012, 11:24 PM EDT

    Olympics Day 16 - Basketball

    There are no surprises — did you think Kobe Bryant or LeBron James were going to be left off the team? —  but now we know nine of the 12 players who will represent the United States in the London Olympic basketball tournament. USA Basketball president Jerry Colangelo laid it out for Chris Tomasson of…

    Tribeca/ESPN Sports Film Festival  Gala: Benji - 2012 Tribeca Film Festival

    He was a long shot anyway after the disaster of a season he just had, but Lamar Odom — who had an invite to Team USA Training Camp — is dropping out of consideration. Via the only other national media member that went to my high school, ESPNLosAngeles’ Arash Markazi, on twitter: Lamar Odom tells…

  5. Report: Anthony Davis severely sprains ankle, out of Olympics

    Jul 2, 2012, 1:09 PM EDT

    Draft Hornets Basketball

    And Team USA loses another potential big man for the roster. Recent No. 1 pick Anthony Davis severely sprained his ankle in a workout for the Hornets, which leaves him very unlikely to be ready when USA Basketball opens training camp Friday (July 6) in Las Vegas and he is now out for the games,…

  7. Chris Paul declines Clippers extension offer. It’s just business.

    Jul 1, 2012, 12:29 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Charlotte Bobcats

    This was more like the opening gambit of a chess game — it played out exactly to form, with the real moves that matter still to come. The Clippers have offered Chris Paul a max extension to his deal, a three-year, $60 million offer, reports Chris Broussard of ESPN (multiple sources reported before Friday that…

  8. Clippers to quickly, quietly sign Blake Griffin to 5-year max extension

    Jun 30, 2012, 3:59 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    This is about as much of a surprise as Tom Cruise burning through another marriage. The Clippers top July 1 free agent priority will be signing star forward Blake Griffin to a max extension to his rookie deal. And it sounds like that is going to happen no problem, reports Ramona Shelburne at ESPNLosAngeles.com. The…

  9. Mo Williams makes it official: He’s headed to Utah, Odom to Clippers

    Jun 29, 2012, 6:31 PM EDT

    Lamar Odom Clippers

    We told you last night just as the draft was ramping up this is how it would go down — Dallas was trading Lamar Odom to the Los Angeles Clippers, the Clippers were sending Mo Williams to Utah, and Dallas was saving a lot of cash. The catch was Williams had to pick up his…

  10. Chris Bosh pulls name from Olympic consideration

    Jun 29, 2012, 12:58 PM EDT

    Chris Bosh USA

    Team USA takes another blow to its front line. Chris Bosh played through an injury to beat Boston and win an NBA championship, but he never fully recovered from his abdominal strain that had him out for nine games of the playoffs. To recover from that, he has pulled his name from consideration for the…

  12. Report: Lamar Odom to Clippers deal finalized; Mo Williams will pick up option, head to Utah

    Jun 28, 2012, 8:01 PM EDT

    Tribeca/ESPN Sports Film Festival  Gala: Benji - 2012 Tribeca Film Festival

    The deal we reported to you earlier — Lamar Odom to the Clippers, Mo Williams to Utah and a lot of cash savings to Dallas — will go forward, reports the Associated Press. Earlier in the day it was the Dallas Morning News that broke the news the deal was in place. But it was…

  13. Report: Utah could facilitate Odom to Clippers, but Mo Williams is key

    Jun 28, 2012, 4:30 PM EDT

    Lamar Odom Clippers

    And we have come to this — Mo Williams holds the key to Lamar Odom’s future. PBT told you yesterday that the Los Angeles Clippers were interested in trading for Lamar Odom. While a lot of people speculated that they wanted him to be a backup big behind Blake Griffin, the fact is he could…

  14. Anthony Davis will not be highest paid rookie ever

    Jun 27, 2012, 11:55 AM EDT

    Anthony Davis

    There is a rookie salary scale in the NBA that makes first round-picks very affordable for owners for the first couple years at least, and really four or five for most players. It makes the truly elite players like a Derrick Rose or Blake Griffin a real steal for the first several years they are…

  15. Report: Clippers, Mavericks talking Lamar Odom trade

    Jun 27, 2012, 1:51 AM EDT

    Lamar Odom

    Lamar Odom back with the Clippers? Well, he wants to go somewhere he is comfortable and Los Angeles is that. And he wants to play for a team that could go deep in the playoffs, and the Clippers are that. Or, the Clippers could just buy him out and save some cash. But the Clippers…

    NBA 2K13 cover

    In the dog days of summer that are coming — after the NBA draft, after free agency winds down, after Summer League, after the Olympics — we will be left without basketball for a couple of months. That’s when we end up thinking and playing a lot more NBA 2K12 and thinking about NBA 2K13.…

  17. Which teams could crash the Thunder/Heat finals next year?

    Jun 22, 2012, 1:47 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat - Game Five

    These finals didn’t feel like a one-time thing. One year from now the Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder could well be back on the NBA’s biggest stage. This is a budding rivalry. Between LeBron James and Kevin Durant. Between the flashy East Coast city and the solid Midwestern city. Miami’s stars are in their…

  18. Is Andre Drummond sliding down draft boards?

    Jun 21, 2012, 1:17 PM EDT

    Uconn's Drummond fights for the ball as Syracuse's C.J. Fair and Fab Melo defend during their game at the 2012 Big East men's NCAA college basketball tournament at Madison Square Garden in New York

    There’s no doubt that if Andre Drummond can put it all together — he has the size, the athleticism, he can defend and rebound — he could be one of the better big men in the NBA in a few years. You could have said the same thing about Andray Blatche. It is that concern…

  19. Kobe Bryant still king of international NBA jersey sales

    Jun 21, 2012, 10:35 AM EDT

    kobe-game-3-nuggets

    Kobe Bryant is still the biggest brand in the NBA. Others are in line for his crown, but if you want to use an NBA star to sell shoes or soft drink or whatever internationally, Kobe is the gold standard. And he can sell jerseys, too. The league announced the top NBA jersey sales internationally…

  20. What would Team USA under-23 Olympic team look like?

    Jun 15, 2012, 7:37 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant, Team USA

    David Stern wants it. Mark Cuban wants it. Most of his fellow NBA owners want it. At his pre-finals press conference, David Stern again said he wants the Olympic basketball program to start following the soccer model — under-23. There would be one World Cup every four years with no age restrictions, but the Olympics…

    It’s not going to be easy to top NBA 2K12 and the throwback teams, but I’ll speak for all of us in saying I can’t wait to hear what is coming in NBA 2K13. This new promo spot for the game doesn’t really tell us much about the game itself, but it does remind us…

  22. Report: Kings not likely to offer Tyreke Evans extension

    Jun 8, 2012, 11:35 AM EDT

    Kenneth Faried, Tyreke Evans

    This summer, everyone from the 2009 NBA Draft class is eligible to have their rookie contract extension. For a guy like No. 1 overall pick Blake Griffin it’s a no-brainer. It’s a no-brainer for No. 2 pick Hasheem Thabeet, too, just for a very different reason. But what about Tyreke Evans? The Sacramento rookie of…

  23. Report: Clippers looking at Kiki Vandeweghe as GM

    Jun 6, 2012, 2:47 PM EDT

    Vandeweghe

    If you have wondered what Kiki Vandeweghe has been up to since leaving the Denver Nuggets the answer is he’s been a pre/post game analyst for Clippers games on Fox Sports West in Los Angeles. So it shouldn’t be a shock to see his name come up in regards to the Clippers suddenly vacant GM…

  24. Clippers GM change not expected to change Griffin situation

    Jun 5, 2012, 10:47 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Seven

    Whoever gets brought in to replace Neil Olshey as general manager of the Los Angeles Clippers has one big job — make Chris Paul happy. Paul can leave as a free agent next summer and the GM has to keep him happy and get him to commit to LA. That means get him players to…

  25. It wasn’t about money, GM Olshey chose Portland over L.A.

    Jun 5, 2012, 8:46 AM EDT

    Neil Olshey

    When the Clippers — with general manager Neil Olshey at the helm —acquired Chris Paul, I kept saying that the only thing that could really screw them up now was owner Donald Sterling. With the excitement and winning on the court, we tend to think the Clippers as an organization have changed — they are…
