  1. Report: Houston Rockets to pursue Carmelo Anthony this summer

    Mar 14, 2014, 9:30 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    At a panel during the Sloan Conference, Golden State Warriors general manager Bob Myers described the arduous process of acquiring Andre Iguodala. The Warriors had no cap room last summer, so Myers faced a two-sided task to land the free agent. Not only did he negotiate with Iguodala, Myers discussed trades with other teams to…

  2. LeBron James tweaks ankle, day-to-day before rematch with Pacers Wednesday

    Dec 17, 2013, 12:22 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    There wasn’t much to see after halftime of the Heat’s easy win over the Jazz — Utah got the ball inside and scored on second chance points in the first half, but talent wins out in the NBA and Miami has much more than Utah. Miami turned this into a rout. However one potentially important…

  3. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: Golden State Warriors

    Oct 15, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    Last season: The Warriors ultimately overachieved when all was said and done in 2013, getting to the second round of the playoffs and taking the eventual Western Conference champion Spurs to six games before their season was ended. For a sixth seed entering the playoffs with just 47 wins and having to go through the…

  4. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: Utah Jazz

    Oct 11, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Jazz Scrimmage

    Last season: The Jazz finished 43-39, but they missed the playoffs for the second time in three seasons. Nobody really knew what direction Utah was headed, perhaps including Utah itself. The Jazz kept Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap, both on expiring contracts, past the trade deadline to make a playoff push. All they got was…

  5. Report: Jazz to sign John Lucas

    Jul 15, 2013, 6:25 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors head coach Dwane Casey talks with guard John Lucas III during the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Detroit Pistons in Auburn Hills

    If the Jazz are Riggin’ for Wiggins – and by letting two of their top players (Paul Millsap and Al Jefferson) leave in free agency and trading for hefty contracts (Richard Jefferson, Andris Biedrins and, to a lesser degree, Brandon Rush) just to get draft picks, it sure seems like they are – they’ll still…

  6. Iguodala was an hour away from signing with Dallas then Warriors trade went down

    Jul 12, 2013, 10:49 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    Mark Cuban and the Dallas Mavericks were thisclose to signing Andre Iguodala. Instead, a capped-out but aggressive Golden State ownership pulled together a three-team trade that gave them the room to add Iguodala to an already strong Golden State roster and makes them far more dangerous in the West. Iguodala wanted to be a Warrior,…

  8. Report: Randy Foye agrees to be part of sign-and-trade, join Nuggets

    Jul 9, 2013, 10:43 AM EDT

    Randy Foye

    We told you this could be coming on Monday — veteran two guard Randy Foye could be going from Utah to Golden State as an extension to the Andre Iguodala sign-and-trade to Golden State. Now that is all but official, it has been agreed to according to the Associated Press. Foye is a free agent…

  9. If Jazz guard Randy Foye agrees to Nuggets contract, Warriors could spend more in free agency

    Jul 8, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets guard Andre Iguodala drives past Utah Jazz guard Randy Foye during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Salt Lake City, Utah

    The Warriors will sign Andre Iguodala to a four-year, $48 million contract. Golden State will also trade Richard Jefferson, Andris Biedrins, Brandon Rush and draft picks to the Jazz for Kevin Murphy. That much we know. Utah guard Randy Foye, a free agent, might go to the Nuggets on a three-year, $9 million contract (with…

  10. Paul Millsap agrees to two-year deal with the Hawks

    Jul 6, 2013, 12:31 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Clippers

    The Utah Jazz knew that two of their best players would be unrestricted free agents this summer, and yet they played out all of last season without trading them to try and get anything of value in return. They didn’t bother to re-sign them, either. After Al Jefferson left for the greener pastures of the…

  11. Andris Biedrins to exercise player option, return to Warriors next season

    May 24, 2013, 1:22 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs Tim Duncan drives to the basket against Golden State Warriors Andris Biedrins during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Oakland

    When a player averages less than one point and three rebounds per game over the course of a season, while possessing the option to come back for another year with the same team at a salary of $9 million, it doesn’t take a degree in advanced economics to figure out what the chosen course of…

  12. GM on Warriors turnaround: “Sense of desperation has passed”

    May 20, 2013, 9:30 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Golden State Warriors - Game Six

    Just three seasons ago, the Golden State Warriors were a 26-win team with Monta Ellis and Corey Maggette as their two leading scorers — this was a team in need of a radical overhaul. Enter new ownership willing to invest in winning, new players to go with then rookie Stephen Curry, a new coach in…

    SEASON RECORDS Denver: 57-25 third in the West Golden State: 47-35 sixth in the West SEASON SERIES The Nuggets won the season series 3-1, which included two 11 point victories and a double overtime win in their first match up of the season.

  14. A list of NBA players who can veto or block trades in 2013

    Jan 13, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Denver Nuggets

    Excellent information from Marc Stein of ESPN.com in his weekend column, where he details the circumstances surrounding the ability of various players to either block or veto a trade involving them this season. There are 19 players in total that can throw a wrench in their respective team’s trade talks if they so choose, due…

  15. Not good: Brandon Rush tore MCL as well as ACL

    Nov 22, 2012, 9:27 AM EDT

    Brandon Rush, Shannon Brown

    Brandon Rush was already not coming back to the Warriors this season (which sucks, they could use him right about now with injuries on their perimeter), but now you have to wonder at what point next season he’ll be back. Rush has torn his MCL as well as his ACL in his left knee. What…

  16. Klay Thompson plans to shoot way out of slump. Should he do it off bench?

    Nov 21, 2012, 1:13 PM EDT

    Klay Thompson

    The question isn’t “can Klay Thompson shoot?” The guy came into the league a gunner and hit 41.4 percent from three as a rookie. But in a larger role this season — starting, more minutes, more touches — he can’t find his touch. He’s shooting just 33.3 percent from three (and averaging seven shots from…

  17. NBA Power Rankings: Spurs and Knicks movin’ on up

    Nov 5, 2012, 3:42 PM EDT

    Fans celebrate as Knicks' Anthony sinks a three-point shot against Heat during NBA basketball game in New York

    The first few power rankings of the year show the most volatility — we don’t have established patterns for teams and so if someone gets hot or cold for a few games there is no context yet to put that in. It’s Small Sample Size Theatre. The Magic are 2-0 but I don’t think they…

  18. Kenyon Martin says he will play for anyone. At league minimum.

    Nov 5, 2012, 10:01 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v San Antonio Spurs - Game Two

    Kenyon Martin doesn’t have an NBA team. Which seems a little strange — at age 34 last season he struggled a little with knee issues and that led to shooting struggles (he shot 44.8 percent last season, down from 51 percent the season before) and rebounding issues. His PER fell to 9.8. But his knee…

  19. Brandon Rush out for the season with torn ACL

    Nov 3, 2012, 10:00 PM EDT

    Brandon Rush, Shannon Brown

    The way Brandon Rush reacted immediately following his ugly knee injury in the first quarter of the Warriors’ Friday night loss to the Grizzlies, it was easy to fear the worst. On Saturday, the team confirmed it. Rush is expected to be out for the season with a torn ACL, according to his agent Mark…

  20. Warriors Brandon Rush suffers ugly knee injury

    Nov 3, 2012, 12:16 AM EDT

    Brandon Rush, Shannon Brown

    Consider this your warning: The is one of those “not for squeamish” injuries. (We’re not running video here but follow this link to see it, just giving you a heads up that you might want to wait if you’ve just eaten.) Brandon Rush suffered what appeared to be a serious left knee injury in the…

  21. The Warriors have a good problem at small forward

    Oct 7, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Harrison Barnes

    The Warriors, when the draft was approaching, were desperate for small forward help. They wanted an experienced player to “make the” at the position. They couldn’t find a star upgrade by trading the draft pick, so they picked up  Harrison Barnes. They still don’t have that star, but as it turns out, they have enough…

  22. If Harrison Barnes wants minutes, he’s got to bury his looks

    Sep 5, 2012, 1:26 AM EDT

    Harrison Barnes

    Harrison Barnes, the rookie out of North Carolina, was up and down at NBA Summer League. Against the Lakers he was aggressive, attacking the rim on his way to 23 points on 8-of-13 shooting. He showed a real chemistry with Klay Thompson. But then the next night Barnes would come out passive and the game…

  25. Mark Jackson has good players in Golden State now, can he lead them to wins?

    Aug 2, 2012, 8:45 AM EDT

    Mark Jackson Warriors

    Last season, it wouldn’t have mattered if Golden State brought in John Wooden circa 1968 to coach the team — they didn’t have enough talent on the roster to win a lot of games. And what talent they did have kept getting injured. Mark Jackson kind of had a free pass to learn how to…
