  10. Bobcats’ Al Jefferson suffers sprained ankle in preseason vs. Heat

    Oct 12, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Al Jefferson

    Al Jefferson was the big free agent signing in Charlotte this summer, with the team that has been so bad for so long finally deciding to spend for a proven and legitimate talent. It can’t be that easy for the Bobcats, apparently, as Jefferson was carried from the floor Friday after suffering what the team…

  11. Bobcats’ Brendan Haywood out at least 12 weeks following foot surgery

    Oct 10, 2013, 1:03 PM EST

    Brendan Haywood

    Brendan Haywood is not a central figure for the Bobcats this season, all they want from him is a few solid defensive minutes a night off the bench behind Al Jefferson, splitting time with Bismack Biyombo. Now they are going to have to wait for even that. Haywood is expected to be out more than…

  12. Andre Iguodala a riskier free agent than meets the eye

  14. Dwight Howard says it will be “weird” to face Magic Sunday

    Dec 2, 2012, 8:01 AM EST

    Dwight Howard All-Star

    Dwight Howard looked like a guy getting healthy Friday night, like a guy finding his footing with a new team in a brand new offense — 28 points and 20 rebounds. He started to look like the best center in the game. And now on Sunday night he gets to take another step against a…

  15. NBA Preview: Charlotte Bobcats

    Oct 5, 2012, 3:42 PM EST

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

    Last season: Worst. Team. Ever. Literally, no team has ever finished with a worse winning percentage than the 7-59 Bobcats. That had to sting owner Michael Jordan. They were the least efficient team in the league on offense and defense (they both scored the fewest and allowed the most points per possession in the league).…

  16. NBA Season Preview: Indiana Pacers

    Sep 25, 2012, 7:55 PM EST

    Roy Hibbert, Tim Duncan

    Last season: The Pacers made moves to become a top-tier team in the East and they worked out. Roy Hibbert and Paul George both took some big steps forward, while David West added the consistent scorer they were looking for and George Hill provided balance with Darren Collison, though the two didn’t work well together.…

  17. Charlotte ‘wins’ Brendan Haywood amnesty auction

    Jul 14, 2012, 7:00 PM EST

    Bobcats forward Maggette drives on Mavericks center Haywood during their NBA basketball game in Dallas

    This is legitimately a good move. The Bobcats need a true starting center, and Bismack Biyombo is not it. You can pair Brendan Haywood with Biyombo and have incredible length and size and Biyombo can focus on improving in space and be a weak-side help guy. This is a fine move. It’s really cheap, as…

  18. Brendan Haywood amnestied by Dallas Mavericks

    Jul 12, 2012, 3:33 PM EST

    Bobcats forward Maggette drives on Mavericks center Haywood during their NBA basketball game in Dallas

    It was going to happen eventually, the only question is would it happen this year or next. The answer is this. The Dallas Mavericks have amnestied center Brendan Haywood, Marc Stein reports at ESPN. The big man was owed $35 million over four more years. Haywood now goes into a special waiver wire where for…

  19. Report: Bobcats target Sessions, Haywood in free agency

    Jul 12, 2012, 10:29 AM EST

    Bobcats forward Maggette drives on Mavericks center Haywood during their NBA basketball game in Dallas

    The Bobcats have some holes to fill on their roster. Stop with the joke about 15 holes, it’s too easy. They are trying to build, but in the short term they need to put together a roster that is less embarrassing than the one that rolled out there last season. So they are targeting a…

    Jul 9, 2012, 7:16 PM EST

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Sacramento Kings

    We already know Elton Brand will be amnestied in Philly. But come Wednesday (and for one week after that) what other guys are likely going to be sent packing with the amnesty clause this year? Larry Coon of ESPN put together a comprehensive list and here is what we know — there will likely be…

  21. Winderman: Dallas blew it all up for this?

    Jul 3, 2012, 9:40 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks' Nowitzki walks off the court during a timeout against the Oklahoma City Thunder during their NBA Western Conference quarter-final playoff basketball game in Dallas

    The Mavericks blew it up for this? To finish as runner-up for Deron Williams? The Mavericks put aside one of Dirk Nowitzki‘s precious few quality remaining seasons on the promise of potential hope? Yes, the Mavericks still could recover next summer, if Chris Paul doesn’t reach a new deal with the Clippers, if Dwight Howard…

  22. How Brendan Haywood’s contract structure could help the Mavs reload

    Jun 10, 2012, 4:00 PM EST

    Brendan Haywood, Darko Milicic

    The Dallas Morning News shared an interesting note about Brendan Haywood‘s seemingly albatross contract that could be huge this summer. Haywood has what one NBA executive called “the best spread provision in the NBA” in his contract. In layman’s terms, any team that waives Haywood can spread out the payments for the remainder of his…

  23. Mavericks change of business models came to roost on court

    May 6, 2012, 10:30 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks owner Cuban reacts during the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Los Angeles Clippers in Dallas

    The old model wasn’t going to work anymore. Mark Cuban has read the new CBA that the owners and players signed off on after the lockout, and he saw the increasingly punitive taxes and penalties on big spending teams. He looked at his business model of the last decade — which was to win by…
