  1. Report: Lakers will wait for 2015 free agents like Kevin Love unless they can get LeBron (Sorry, Melo)

    Mar 5, 2014, 10:45 AM EDT

    Kevin Love, Jordan Hill, Wesley Johnson

    The Lakers are poised to make a big free agent splash this summer or the next, and Steve Nash is the lynchpin to the decision. If the Lakers want to go big this offseason, they’ll use the stretch provision on Nash, spreading the amount they owe him across the cap the next three years. But…

  2. 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…

  3. Kobe Bryant says Lakers’ revenge will be “sweet” and “quick”

    Mar 3, 2014, 1:16 PM EDT

    NBA All-Star Press Conferences-Media Availabilty 2014

    This would be the definition of playing to the fan base. Although I’m sure Kobe Bryant believes it. There has been plenty of schadenfreude around the league — from other front offices to other fan bases — as the Lakers have fallen into being a hot mess this season. They entered the season with a…

  4. Celtics’ Gerald Wallace has torn meniscus, likely done for season

    Feb 28, 2014, 12:48 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Sacramento Kings

    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…

  5. Wednesday night NBA grades: How about that Kyrie Irving?

    Feb 27, 2014, 4:05 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Oklahoma City Thunder

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while you and your friends debated canned vs. bottled beer…. Kyrie Irving, Cleveland Cavaliers. He wasn’t in attack mode, he was in seek-and-destroy mode. With Dion Waiters and basically everyone who can shoot outside 15 feet injured he knows he has to be the man…

  6. Celtics choosing to move past Rondo’s unexcused absence

    Feb 27, 2014, 12:01 AM EDT

    New Boston Celtics Head Coach Stevens smiles during a news conference at the Celtics training center in Waltham

    Rajon Rondo skipped his team’s trip to Sacramento late Friday night, preferring to stay in Los Angeles to celebrate his 28th birthday with friends and family instead. Rondo hasn’t been playing on the second night of back-to-backs since returning from injury this season, and wasn’t scheduled to play Saturday night against the Kings. But he…

  7. Rajon Rondo skips Celtics trip to Sacramento without permission, may face team discipline

    Feb 25, 2014, 10:55 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Boston Celtics

    Rajon Rondo hasn’t been playing in second games of back-to-backs for the Celtics, as he continues to gain strength after missing most of last season and the first part of this one with a knee injury. That little detail, along with the fact that friends and family were in Los Angeles to celebrate his birthday…

  8. Carmelo Anthony admits his optimism is being tested. What about desire to stay in New York?

    Feb 24, 2014, 12:52 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Orlando Magic

    With 26 games left to go in the season, the New York Knicks are 5.5 games out of the final playoff spot in the East. Let that sink in for a second. The eight seed Atlanta Hawks are on pace to win 39 games this season, to get there the Knicks need to go 18-8…

  9. Celtics GM Ainge on Rondo: “I believe he loves the city of Boston”

    Feb 21, 2014, 11:29 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs Vs. Boston Celtics At TD Garden

    Another trade deadline, another flurry of Rajon Rondo rumors. Once again when the dust settles Rondo is still a Celtic. There’s a pattern here. As with past years, reports from other teams are that the Celtics were asking the world for Rondo (the buzz is they wanted Chandler Parsons and two first round picks from…

  10. The Extra Pass: What’s behind the slow trade deadline

    Feb 21, 2014, 8:06 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Boston Celtics

    That makes two years in a row. There was more activity at the 2014 NBA trade deadline than in 2013 (25 players got moved this year), but once again the deadline was about shifting around bench players and cap space, there were no difference makers moved. Of the 25 players who changed teams at this…

  11. Trade Deadline Winners/Losers: It’s a good day to be a Pacers fan

    Feb 20, 2014, 9:24 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Boston Celtics

    It was the day of the role player. There was a fair amount of action at the NBA’s trade deadline but none of it involved the big names that floated around a little — no Rajon Rondo or Pau Gasol, and Kevin Love was never in play. Still, some teams made smart moves, and some…

  12. Trading for a star mid-season to make an immediate impact? Don’t count on it

    Feb 20, 2014, 9:15 AM EDT

    Deron Williams, Carmelo Anthony

    The Luol Deng trade gave us something we hadn’t seen in three years – a star dealt mid-season. The trade might even give us something we haven’t seen in even longer – a star dealt mid-season actually improving his new team. Teams make mid-season trades for several reasons, but we’re going to examine one archetype…

  13. Rondo on dealing with trade rumors: ‘I can only control so much’

    Feb 20, 2014, 12:02 AM EDT

    rondo

    All of the chatter leading up to Thursday’s trade deadline is a blast for fans to take in, but it’s far less enjoyable for the players whose names continually pop up as being part of reported rumors or discussions. Rajon Rondo is an interesting case, because he seems like exactly the type of player a…

  14. Kings’ GM denies that Ben McLemore has been part of trade talks

    Feb 19, 2014, 12:35 PM EDT

    NBA All-Star Portraits 2014

    Ben McLemore is part of the Kings future and general manager Pete D’Alessandro wants you to know that. In no uncertain terms. McLemore’s name popped in a trade rumor where he was part of a package suggested for Boston’s Rajon Rondo, but the deal died because Sacramento knows there is little chance (if any) Rondo…

  15. The Extra Pass: Five teams to watch closely as the trade deadline nears

    Feb 19, 2014, 7:59 AM EDT

    Kenneth Faried

    With just more than 48 hours left until the NBA’s trade deadline, it feels like the biggest deals may be behind us — Rudy Gay and Luol Deng have already been moved. Rumors are swirling, but the feeling around the league is it is all a lot of sound and fury signifying nothing. Still there…

  16. Report: Celtics interested in Utah’s Gordon Hayward. So are a lot of teams. Doesn’t mean he’ll be moved.

    Feb 19, 2014, 12:04 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Clippers

    Gordon Hayward has a lot of fans in NBA front offices. His ability to shoot it on a catch-and-shoot or off the bounce, his ability to create his own shot, the fact he’s a willing defender has a lot of teams seeing him as a good fit for what they do. He’s also a restricted…

  17. Report: Trying to sell high, Kings make Isaiah Thomas available in trades

    Feb 18, 2014, 7:16 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Golden State Warriors

    Kings fans love Isaiah Thomas and with good reason. We can all relate to the undersized guy picked dead last (60th) in the draft who has sliced his way to an impressive NBA season — 20.2 points and 6.3 assists a night, with a true shooting percentage of 56.8. He’s great at taking angles off…

  18. Report: Doc Rivers, Clippers still in market to add front line depth

    Feb 18, 2014, 1:04 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers Introduce Doc Rivers

    Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan have played 1,638 minutes together this season — 61.7 percent of the Clippers’ total minutes this season. The next big man on the minutes list in Ryan Hollins and he has played 406 minutes. Total. Doc Rivers is riding the Griffin/Jordan combo hard because he has no choice — Hollins,…

  19. 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…

  20. Toronto Raptors reportedly covet Rajon Rondo

    Feb 18, 2014, 11:28 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Boston Celtics

    The Toronto Raptors have reportedly deemed the value of a playoff push trumps the risk of Kyle Lowry’s pending free agency. That’s what makes a Lowry-to-the-Knicks trade so unlikely. Not only do the Knicks have to offer fair value, they must offer so much return, it pushes Toronto off its current course. But what if…

  21. Report: Knicks still pursuing Kyle Lowry trade

    Feb 18, 2014, 9:30 AM EDT

    Kyle Lowry

    The will they?-won’t they?-will they?-won’t they? saga of trade negotiations between the Knicks and Raptors involving Kyle Lowry is reportedly back to the “will they?” stage. Ian Begley of ESPN: With the NBA trade deadline three days away, the Knicks continue to try to engage the Raptors in an attempt to acquire point guard Kyle…

  22. Report: Kings offered McLemore, Thomas, picks for Rondo. Didn’t happen.

    Feb 18, 2014, 1:30 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Boston Celtics

    The Kings have their foundation up front in DeMarcus Cousins, but they need another elite player on the perimeter. Their GM Pete D’Alessandro knows it and is going after that piece. Like trying to land Rajon Rondo. Check out this interesting tidbit from Yahoo Sports’ Marc Spears in his weekly power rankings (hat tip Celtics’…

  23. Jim Boeheim tells Carmelo Anthony to leave Knicks (basically)

    Feb 13, 2014, 10:00 AM EDT

    Syracuse v Wake Forest

    Jim Boeheim, who coached Carmelo Anthony at Syracuse, discussed Melo’s pending free agency with Jim Rome (hat tip: Matt Moore of Eye on Basketball). Boeheim: What I’d tell him is what I would tell any NBA great player. If you’re a great player in the NBA, for you to be recognized as a great player,…

  24. Report: If you want Rajon Rondo or Jeff Green then Celtics want a lot in return

    Feb 12, 2014, 9:53 PM EDT

    rondo

    This is exactly what Flip Saunders was talking about when he suggested this will be a slower than expected trade deadline because teams are not willing to part with picks in perceived good drafts. There is buzz out of Boston that GM Danny Ainge is shopping around just about everyone on the roster —Rajon Rondo…

  25. Report: Warriors looking to make trade to bolster bench

    Feb 12, 2014, 11:47 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Golden State Warriors

    Warriors owner Joe Lacob has made it clear: The organization’s goal for this season was a top four seed in the West and home court in the first round of the playoffs. At 31-21, the Warriors are the six seed currently but are closer to Memphis in the nine seed out of the playoffs (2.5…
