    Troy Murphy

    The Boston Celtics have officially announced the signing of veteran forward Troy Murphy, who was recently bought out of his contract by the Golden State Warriors. The terms of the deal have not been disclosed by the team. Murphy was drafted by the Warriors in 2001, and the former Notre Dame star has established himself…

  2. Winderman: It’s time for built-in buyouts in NBA contracts

    Mar 2, 2011, 1:17 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Miami Heat

    One of the prime sticking points in the negotiations for a new NBA collective-bargaining agreement is maximum contract length. Currently, players can be signed for up to six seasons. Management wants far shorter terms. Based on the machinations at the buyout deadline, the players certainly are fueling management’s argument. Even with time left on the…

  3. Corey Brewer sweepstakes a crowded one

    Everyone knew that Troy Murphy was going to get a buyout and that Mike Bibby was going to do whatever it took to get out of Washington. But Corey Brewer being bought out by the Knicks was a surprise. He came to the Knicks as part of the Carmelo Anthony deal, we assumed because the…

  4. What does Troy Murphy bring to Boston?

    Troy_Murphy

    The Boston Celtics got Troy Murphy and the Miami Heat didn’t. In the end, that may be the biggest part of the Murphy signing by the Celtics. Boston already had some depth, even though their front line is banged up now. Miami on the other hand really needs a guy who can stretch the floor…

    NBA Finals Game 4: Los Angeles Lakers v Boston Celtics

    UPDATE 12:16 pm: We have the financial figures — $34.8 million over four years, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo. That works out to an average of $8.7 million a year and is about $12 million more than Boston could offer. Boston was hamstrung with its offer because it is over the salary cap, which…

  6. Troy Murphy now torn between Heat, Celtics; Bibby Miami bound

    Nets_Murphy

    Just 24 hours ago Boston felt pretty good about getting some more help along their front line in the form of Troy Murphy, the veteran stretch four bought out by the Warriors. Then Pat Riley and the Heat got involved. Things are up in the air with a decision expected Tuesday, according to CSN New…

  7. Report: Wizards buy Mike Bibby out; he’ll sign with Heat

    Feb 28, 2011, 3:30 PM EDT

    Mike Bibby Wizards

    UPDATE 3:30 pm: According to Sam Amick, Bibby intends to sign with the Miami Heat once he clears waivers. Amick also notes that Bibby will take about $6 million less to get out of his current deal. Miami seems a good fit for what Bibby brings to the table — floor-spacing three-point shooting. That’s about…

  8. Wizards, Mike Bibby’s agent to meet, talk buyout

    Feb 28, 2011, 11:15 AM EDT

    Mike Bibby Wizards

    Well, Mike Bibby, just how badly do you want to go to a contender? Or, to be blunt, how many millions are you willing to give up to go to a contender? The Wizards — who acquired Bibby at the trade deadline as part of the Kirk Hinrich deal — don’t really plan to buy…

  9. Clippers buyout Rasual Butler, veteran buyout wave starts

    Rasual Butler is the first, but you are going to see a rush of these stories in the next few days, followed up with speculation about where they will land. Now is when teams try to negotiate buyouts of contracts for veterans that the team is not going to play. The player takes a little…

  10. Blake Griffin introduces himself to Celtics, unsuspecting rim

    Feb 27, 2011, 11:26 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Clippers

    The advantage of throwing alley-oop passes to Blake Griffin is you don’t have to do it particularly well. Randy Foye took advantage of that Saturday in the Clippers loss to the Celtics. Griffin runs the floor harder than any big in the game and he is out on the break calling for the lob, and…

  11. Are the Oklahoma City Thunder contenders now?

    Feb 25, 2011, 12:07 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Charlotte Bobcats

    Oklahoma City is your trade deadline winner. Last season in the playoffs, the young and athletic Thunder tested the Lakers in the playoffs first round, but when push came to shove the Lakers shoved harder. They had Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol and the Thunder had no answer. Same thing when the two teams played…

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Clippers

    So remember how everybody around the league said this was going to be a slow trading deadline…. Danny Ainge spins that his deadline deal helps the Celtics win now. Baron Davis and Byron Scott are friends now. Everything is good. Nothing to worry about there. Nope. Can’t see any problems. How the O.J. Mayo to…

  13. Perkins exit leaves Boston locker room in tears

    Feb 25, 2011, 10:31 AM EDT

    NBA Finals Game 4: Los Angeles Lakers v Boston Celtics

    The Boston locker room is tight. This isn’t your average NBA locker room, with guys who get along okay, but after the practices they all head separate directions with their posses. Boston was different. Call it Ubuntu, call it a bond formed by winning a title, call it whatever you want, it was real. And…

  14. Poll: What team helped itself the most with trades?

    Feb 25, 2011, 9:42 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v New York Knicks

    For weeks leading up, everyone we talked to was telling us it was going to be a quiet trade deadline. The new CBA coming, the bottleneck caused by the Carmelo Anthony deal, there were a bunch of reasons nothing much was going to happen. Then BOOM! With the force of a Blake Griffin dunk the…

  15. Video: Rondo’s behind the back assist

    Feb 25, 2011, 9:15 AM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    Boston struggled to put up points Thursday night against Denver, but Rondo did his best to make it easy for his teammates. He ha 8 assists on the night, but none better than this behind-the-back set up for Glen Davis.

  16. Boston’s Danny Ainge learned from history, tries to avoid repeating it

    Feb 24, 2011, 7:50 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Boston Celtics

    When the Boston Celtics powerhouse teams of the ‘80s wound down, the wheels came off that franchise. There were a lot of factors; Len Bias was a big one. Current Celtics GM Danny Ainge — a member of those teams — has said the Celtics made a mistake trying to ride the wave all the…

  17. Deadline shocker: Celtics trade Perkins, Robinson to Thunder for Green, Krstic

    Feb 24, 2011, 3:48 PM EDT

    NBA Finals Game 6:  Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    Boston has made a deadline deal that seems to weaken their defense as they head in the playoffs — and just made the Oklahoma City Thunder a much bigger threat in the West. Boston has traded Kendrick Perkins and Nate Robinson to the Oklahoma City Thunder for forward Jeff Green and center Nenad Krstic, as…

  18. Celtics Kendrick Perkins to miss next three games at least

    Kendrick Perkins finally returned to the Celtics a dozen games ago, returning from his finals knee injury to anchor on the backline of the Celtics defense. Now he is out again for at least three more games. Perkins strained his MCL Tuesday night in the Celtics win over Golden State and will sit out the…

    Cavaliers Lakers Basketball

    If you have picks to trade, the Cleveland Cavaliers roster is open to you. Yes, Boston is looking for another player. Doc says so. The Trail Blazers are checking out the market for Andre Miller and Marcus Camby. Camby has no desire to be traded. The Hawks really want Washington’s Kirk Hinrich to be their…

  20. Report: Celtics deal for Shane Battier not happening

    Feb 22, 2011, 1:10 AM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Phoenix Suns

    Feb. 22, 1:10 am: According to friend of the site A. Sherrod Blakely this trade is not happening. Which makes sense. As we discuss in the post below there just isn’t much the Celtics could really offer that would entice the Rockets — nobody is going to take on Jermaine O’Neal’s deal if they are…

  21. NBA Power Rankings: All-Star influenced edition

    Feb 21, 2011, 2:41 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics All-Stars

    With teams only playing one or two games this weekend due to the All-Star break, we decided to let the weekend activities influence the power rankings. Like dunking over a car moves you up. But just a little. 1. Celtics (40-14, LW #2). Doc Rivers played Kevin Garnett 7:32 in the All Star Game and…

  22. Report: Celtics, Bulls have interest in Clippers Rasual Butler

    Feb 20, 2011, 7:34 PM EDT

    rasual butler

    With Marquis Daniels out for an extended period, the Celtics are looking hard for someone to fill his shoes — a wing player off the bench who can give them a solid 15-20 minutes a night, a veteran who can hit some shots and not make too many mistakes. The Chicago Bulls are looking for…

    For all the world cares, there are two guys in the Three-Point Shooting Contest, part of the Saturday night fun in Los Angeles for All-Star Weekend. There’s Ray Allen, who has hit more three pointers than anyone in NBA history. Then there is Paul Pierce, the defending Three-Point Contest champion. They play for the high-profile…

    Anthony Parker

    If you’re Anthony Parker, you’re packing your bags with a smile on your face today. Because no matter how this goes down, you’re about to head from the worst team in the NBA to a contender. Both the Celtics and Cavaliers are interested in picking up Parker, according to Marc Stein of ESPN: The Celts,…

    Dwyane Wade, LeBron James

    Welcome to All-Star Weekend, when the NBA takes a break from playing games to talk about trades. And hear about the great parties that the players went to. Then talk about more trades. Then watch an exhibition with less defense than a Cavs-Raptors game. For the rest of us, it’s a good time to take…
