    Jun 23, 2014, 1:04 PM EDT

    Hard to imagine KG coming back for one more run without free agent Pierce back on the team.

  5. Why the Spurs shouldn’t extend Kawhi Leonard’s contract

    Jun 17, 2014, 4:15 PM EDT

    Kawhi Leonard

    San Antonio is best served letting Leonard become a restricted free agent in 2015, and because of that, so is he.

    Apr 2, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

  10. Wednesday NBA grades: The Indiana Pacers we remember reappeared

    Mar 27, 2014, 3:33 AM EDT

    Roy Hibbert

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while hating on the idea of Monopoly “house rules”…. Indiana Pacers. It wasn’t pretty, but what mattered was the fight in the team. And the win over Miami, but more than that the fight it took from them to get there. Indiana had been slogging through the season,…

  11. Shaun Livingston has played his way to a payday the Nets can’t offer

    Mar 19, 2014, 1:12 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Brooklyn Nets

    Shaun Livingston has been a solid point guard for the Nets this season and he has looked even better of late as the Nets have gotten hot — in his last 5 games he has averaged 11.8 points on 53 percent shooting, plus dishing out four assists a game. He is a quality veteran backup…

  12. Truth too much for Heat, Brooklyn knocks off Miami

    Mar 13, 2014, 12:11 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Brooklyn Nets

    Brooklyn started to look like a threat this season when they were forced by injry to go small without Brook Lopez, which meant coach Jason Kidd slid Paul Pierce over to the power forward slot. You knew Pierce could score at the four, but the surprise is how much better the Brooklyn defense is with…

  13. Paul Pierce’s move to power forward adds twist to his career, Brooklyn Nets’ season

    Mar 8, 2014, 6:00 PM EDT

    Amir Johnson; Mirza Teletovic; Alan Anderson

    BOSTON – On Paul Pierce’s first defensive possession as the Brooklyn Nets’ full-time starting power forward, Serge Ibaka backed him down on the block. Pierce bodied Ibaka, keeping him out of the paint, and Ibaka threw the ball away. On the Oklahoma City Thunder’s next possession, Ibaka posted up Pierce again. Pierce hardly yielded an…

    Feb 20, 2014, 6:48 PM EDT

    FILE:  NBA Player Jason Collins Comes Out As Gay

    It’s been expected that the Nets would look to bring in another big man this season. While they have had success with a smaller lineup since Brook Lopez went down sometimes you need a traditional big for matchup purposes. That big man may be Jason Collins, reports Ohn Youngmisuk and Marc Stein at ESPNNewYork.com. The…

    Feb 19, 2014, 10:38 PM EDT

    jordan hill

    As the Lakers continue to look at ways to shed salary and potentially get under the luxury tax threshold this season, Jordan Hill is a player that many expect to be dealt before Thursday’s trade deadline passes. L.A. was in talks with Brooklyn a couple of days ago, mainly because the Nets have a $5.25…

  16. Report: Nets may use disabled player exception to acquire Jordan Hill from Lakers

    Feb 17, 2014, 6:25 PM EDT

    jordan hill

    Jordan Hill has slipped down Mike D’Antoni’s Lakers’ rotations behind even Chris Kaman because… actually I don’t have a good reason for you. Hill is not skilled offensive player, but what he brings is energy and the Lakers could often use that. D’Antoni’s Lakers rotations have been interesting this season. We’ll go with interesting. The…

  17. Report: Only ‘a slim chance’ Nets make a move before the trade deadline

    Feb 11, 2014, 10:24 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Brooklyn Nets

    There are plenty of teams that will be obvious buyers or sellers at the upcoming Feb. 20 trade deadline. But the situation with the Nets is a bit less clear. Brooklyn went all-in this season as much as possible, putting together a team whose payroll including luxury tax payments will reach the $180 million range…

  18. With Brooklyn winning going small, could they look to move Brook Lopez?

    Feb 4, 2014, 4:59 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Brooklyn Nets

    Around Christmas, it looked like we could leave the Brooklyn Nets for dead. By the time they lost to San Antonio on New Year’s Eve, the Nets were 10-21 and without Brook Lopez, their star center, for the rest of the season due to another foot surgery. That injury forced Brooklyn to go small —…

  19. The Extra Pass: Which non-All-Stars will make an All-NBA team?

    Jan 31, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans vs Miami Heat

    All-Star selections have become the de facto measure of good seasons, even though they’re really only the measure of good half seasons and rely on a gerrymandered system that splits players by conference. But All-NBA teams – which evaluate a full year and aren’t split by conference – are a better metric for good seasons. In the last…

    Jan 20, 2014, 6:58 PM EDT

    deron williams knicks

    NEW YORK – The last time the Nets faced the Knicks, they were without Deron Williams and Paul Pierce due to injury, and a fully healthy New York squad thumped Brooklyn back on Dec. 5 at Barclays by a 30-point margin. A little more than a month later, things have completely changed for both sides. The…

    Jan 18, 2014, 8:00 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Dwight Howard‘s exit from the Orlando Magic was anything but graceful, with him publicly going back and forth on whether or not he would stay or go. After initially demanding to be dealt during the 2012 season, Howard signed a waiver of his early termination option that would prevent him from opting out of the…

    Jan 18, 2014, 5:00 PM EDT

    The Brooklyn Nets are reportedly close to making two separate trades that will be of little consequence to their product on the court, or to the average fan. But they may be setting themselves up for something bigger in the future. The Nets are finalizing a trade with the Bulls that would send Tornike Shengalia…
