    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…

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

    Feb 17, 2014, 6:25 PM EST

    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…

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

    Feb 11, 2014, 10:24 PM EST

    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…

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

    Feb 4, 2014, 4:59 PM EST

    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 —…

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

    Jan 31, 2014, 8:00 AM EST

    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…

  6. Trade is official: Nets get Marquis Teague, Bulls land Tornike Shengalia

    Jan 21, 2014, 12:50 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Washington Wizards - NBA Global Games Rio 2013

    We told you this trade was coming last Friday night, now it is official: The Chicago Bulls have sent Marquis Teague to the Brooklyn Nets in exchange for Tornike Shengalia, the teams have announced. What the Bulls get is money — the little-used Shengalia can and will be let go after this season. Teague is…

  7. Deron Williams returns, chooses to come off the bench in Nets’ blowout win over Knicks

    Jan 20, 2014, 6:58 PM EST

    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…

  8. Dwight Howard says he was ‘promised’ a trade from Magic to Nets

    Jan 18, 2014, 8:00 PM EST

    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…

  9. Report: Nets finalizing trades with Bulls and Pelicans to free up roster spot

    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…

  10. Reports: Rockets, Nets discussed Deron Williams trade recently. But no more.

    Jan 10, 2014, 3:15 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Brooklyn Nets

    Remember a couple years ago how desperately the Nets were trying to pair Dwight Howard with Deron Williams? Howard wanted it to happen but Orlando wasn’t going to give him exactly what he wanted, so they sent him to Los Angeles (in a deal that worked very well for their rebuilding plans). That ended up…

  11. Nets get $5.25 million disabled player exception approved for injured Brook Lopez

    Jan 8, 2014, 8:45 AM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Brooklyn Nets

    It’s been well-documented that the Nets will have the league’s highest payroll this season when including luxury tax costs, a bill that will total in the neighborhood of $180 million when all is said and done. The league offered Brooklyn a small amount of relief on Tuesday, granting the Nets a disabled payer exception worth…

  12. Deron Williams out Wednesday vs. Warriors, maybe longer with sprained ankle

    Jan 7, 2014, 2:42 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Brooklyn Nets

    Brooklyn has won three in a row and picked up a nice win over Atlanta Monday night in a battle of “which team sucks less with its best player out?” However now it looks like the Nets are going to have to get by without Deron Williams at the point a little longer — and…

  13. Deron Williams out for Nets Monday night with more ankle issues

    Jan 6, 2014, 6:17 PM EST

    Deron Williams

    Nets point guard Deron Williams — who has already missed 11 games this season due to ankle injuries — is out again Monday night as the Nets host the Atlanta Hawks. Stephan Bondy of the New York Daily News tweets some of the details. Deron Williams is out tonight with an ankle sprain. There was…

  14. Surgery on Brook Lopez’s foot included procedure meant to save his career

    Jan 5, 2014, 5:00 PM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Brooklyn Nets

    When Brook Lopez was lost for the season with a fractured foot injury, there was no doubt that surgery would be required before the long rehabilitation process would begin. But in addition to the repair, a second procedure was done in hopes that Lopez can have a long NBA career and the repeated injuries would…

    Knock his game if you want — although you have to admit it has taken a healthy step forward this season — but you have to know Jeremy Lin is one of the most popular players in the NBA. He is fourth in NBA All-Star voting for the Western Conference’s backcourt, with more votes than…

  16. Kevin Garnett admits his rhythm off in Nets system

    Jan 2, 2014, 12:19 PM EST

    Milwaukee Bucks v Brooklyn Nets

    Putting players in a position to do what they do well and succeed is one of the biggest jobs as a coach. Look at the best — Gregg Popovich, Phil Jackson — and you find systems designed to get guys to do what they do well and not play to their weaknesses. Conversely, there is…

  17. June draft will be biggest NBA story of 2014

    Andrew Wiggins

    The beauty of sports is that our predictions are often off the mark — like life itself it goes in directions we can’t predict. Still, we have some ideas of what we will look back on in a year as the biggest stories in the NBA for 2014. If the Miami Heat three-peat it will…

  18. Kyrie Irving set for MRI after feeling a ‘pop’ in his knee during loss to Pacers

    Dec 31, 2013, 8:00 PM EST

    kyrie

    It was one of those injuries during a season filled with them that looked as though it might cause Kyrie Irving to miss significant time. Late in the third quarter of the Pacers’ win over the Cavaliers on Tuesday, Irving’s knee seemed to buckle a bit on a drive to the basket, which caused him…

  19. Stan Van Gundy lays out Nets situation… and it’s not pretty

    Dec 31, 2013, 3:51 PM EST

    Washington Wizards v Brooklyn Nets

    You can’t just buy an NBA title anymore. You can spend a lot of money on stars but you need to do it wisely (see the Miami Heat), but you can’t just throw a random roster of stars together. Mark Cuban tried it and learned he needed to build a team differently, one with parts…

  20. NBA says there’s been no increase in rate of ‘significant’ injuries this season

    Dec 30, 2013, 10:43 PM EST

    Derrick Rose

    Unless you’re a hardcore fan of one of a small group of five NBA teams, the injuries sustained this season to many of the league’s star players have made this a dismal campaign thus far. The Thunder are one of the five, but we’ve seen them have to deal with missed time from Russell Westbrook,…

  21. Report: Questions of if Pau Gasol could play for Lakers just means more trade speculation

    Dec 30, 2013, 1:18 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    The Lakers lost at home to the stumbling Philadelphia 76ers Sunday night, a low point in a season with a number of them for the Lakers. Pau Gasol wasn’t there — and that was Gasol’s decision, according to Dave McMenamin of ESPNLosAngeles.com. It was Gasol’s decision to sit out as his team extended its season-high…

  22. Jason Kidd on report he’s losing the locker room: ‘I can’t answer to what you guys make up’

    Dec 28, 2013, 3:30 PM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Brooklyn Nets

    Jason Kidd is reportedly in danger of losing his job in the middle of his first season as an NBA head coach. The Nets have had to deal with more than their fair share of injuries to be sure, including the one to Brook Lopez that is expected to sideline him the rest of the…

  23. LeBron James strains groin, questionable for Saturday vs. Portland

    Dec 28, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Sacramento Kings

    If you were looking forward to a full strength Miami Heat team taking on the Trail Blazers Saturday, you may be disappointed. LeBron James strained his groin in the second quarter of the Heat’s loss to the Kings Friday night and is questionable for the anticipated Saturday showdown, so reports Ethan Skolnick of Bleacher Report.…

  24. Report: If Nets don’t turn around, Kidd likely gone by All-Star Game

    Dec 27, 2013, 7:48 PM EST

    Washington Wizards v Brooklyn Nets

    The Nets first mistake was hiring a coach with no experience — a guy who was going to need a learning curve — and putting him in charge of a veteran team with a one-year (two at best) title window. There was no margin for error. Yet everything has gone wrong. It started with injuries…

  25. Mark Cuban didn’t like sleeved Christmas jerseys, but they didn’t really impact shooting

    Dec 27, 2013, 1:11 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Golden State Warriors

    It was the first question about all the games on Christmas Day: What did you think of the Christmas Day NBA sleeved jerseys? Personally, not a huge fan. It’s not the sleeves, those don’t bother me (I know some people hate sleeves, I just see Patrick Ewing at Georgetown). However, the oversized logos and the…
