  1. Report: Pistons would trade Josh Smith if they could

    Jan 31, 2014, 7:48 PM EDT

    Josh Smith, Brandan Wright

    Josh Smith is having the worst season of his career. Playing far too much small forward, a position he can handle only in select matchups, his defense has really fallen off. Though Smith defends power forwards well, his his lack of speed on the perimeter kills his ability to chase wings around screens. He’s also…

  3. Caron Butler latest in long list of Bucks sidelined with injury

    Nov 15, 2013, 12:51 PM EDT

    Caron Butler

    The Milwaukee Bucks are one banged up team. Point guards Brandon Knight and Luke Ridnour are not medially cleared to play Friday night (that could change with Ridnour, but he was out as of this writing). Reserve shooting guard Gary Neal has a foot injury that kept him out of the last game. Small forward…

  4. Carlos Delfino says on his Website he will have foot surgery, likely miss season

    Nov 11, 2013, 12:19 PM EDT

    Carlos Delfino

    Carlos Delfino had foot surgery back in May (he injured it during the Rockets’ playoff series and was expected to miss 4-6 months). However, the Bucks signed him over the summer and the original prognosis made you think he would be suiting up for Milwaukee by training camp. Then that got pushed back to the…

  5. The Extra Pass: Three new faces and Wednesday’s recaps

    Nov 7, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Milwaukee Bucks

    One of the best parts about the start of any season is the chance to get familiar with the new faces in the league. Guys like Michael Carter-Williams and Victor Oladipo will get plenty of publicity, so let’s dig a little deeper and look at a few other players that are impressing in their first…

  6. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Let the season begin!

    LeBron James

    To celebrate a new season, we bring you a new set of NBA Power Rankings from PBT. Let the kvetching about your ranking begin! Just remember that this is an exercise in fun — these are meaningless as the NBA has a playoff system to decide who is best. What sport would rely on journalist’s…

  7. Greece wanted nothing to do with his family until NBA noticed Antetokounmpo’s basketball skills

    Oct 23, 2013, 11:27 AM EDT

    Giannis Antetokounmpo Corey Brewer

    The life of an NBA rookie such as Giannis Antetokounmpo has its challenges. Sure, suddenly he’s the rookie with some buzz after showing flashes of his seemingly limitless potential while getting a little run with the Bucks this preseason; but come the regular season he will spend a lot of time on the bench behind…

    Houston Rockets Introduce Dwight Howard

    Last season: The Rockets began the year with the somewhat surprising trade for James Harden — surprising because of the Thunder’s choice to deal him so soon instead of pursuing a title with him in place for one more season. It was the right call on Houston’s part, as Harden immediately turned into the offensive…

  9. Setback with broken foot to keep Bucks’ Delfino out through most of camp

    Oct 1, 2013, 2:21 PM EDT

    Carlos Delfino

    The Bucks picked up Carlos Delfino this summer at a very reasonable $3.2 million per year, part of their “we’re not tanking, but we are reshaping the roster and we’ll not be all that good” strategy (which was led by getting O.J. Mayo). Now the Bucks are going to be without Delfino for most of…

    Sep 27, 2013, 9:19 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Milwaukee Bucks - Game Three

    Last season: The Bucks went 38-44, reaching the playoffs despite a mid-season firing of Scott Skiles. Their high-scoring and high-shooting backcourt of Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis defined the team, but it was really as a team without a strong identity. Before the playoffs began, Jennings predicted the Bucks would beat the Heat in six…

  11. Bucks’ GM says Caron Butler going to get “a lot of minutes”

    Sep 6, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Caron Butler

    The Milwaukee Bucks do not want you to think they are in the tank. Transitioning, yes. Rebuilding even. But they are not going “woeful for Wiggins” either. They have O.J. Mayo, Larry Sanders, Brandon Knight, Ersan Ilysova, Gary Neal — some guys that can play. They are not the Heat or Spurs, but they have…

  12. Bucks GM says Sanders key to rebuild, he wants that challenge

    Sep 2, 2013, 4:30 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Milwaukee Bucks - Game Three

    For the casual fan who didn’t watch a lot of Bucks basketball last season, the four-year, $44 million extension Larry Sanders got from the Milwaukee Bucks was head scratching. Who was he and why give him that much money? Because he is one of the up-and-coming best shot blocking, defensive bigs in the game and…

  13. FIBA Americas Tournament became Renaldo Balkman show on Friday

    Puerto Rico's Balkman goes for a basket against Brazil's Giovannoni during their FIBA Americas Championship basketball game in Caracas

    The 2013 FIBA Americas tournament tipped off on Friday in Caracas, Venezuela, with teams from North, South and Central America attempting to move one step closer to playing in the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. It’s still a bit early to be talking about that since the tournament won’t end until September 11, but…

  14. It’s official: Caron Butler traded to Milwaukee Bucks

    Aug 29, 2013, 5:59 PM EDT

    Caron Butler

    The Milwaukee Bucks get a Racine native who can help them out immediately at the three, where Carlos Delfino could be a little slow to come around following off-season foot surgery. The Phoenix Suns saved more than $5 million and brought in a couple interesting young pieces. The trade we first told you about last…

  15. Report: Bucks Carlos Delfino could miss start of season due to foot surgery

    Aug 29, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Image (1) Delfino_game-thumb-250x352-10319.jpg for post 1603

    Why did the Bucks make a move to bring in Caron Butler at the expense of a couple younger players? Maybe in part because they know that they could use some help at the three at the start of the season because the guy they had penciled in there isn’t going to be around. Carlos…

  16. Report: Suns’ Butler to Bucks trade for Smith, Kravtsov; finalized Thursday

    Aug 29, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Caron Butler

    We brought you news of this potential trade last night and now you wake up to the news that the deal is all but official. The Suns have agreed to trade Caron Butler to the Milwaukee Bucks for guard Ish Smith and center Slava Kravtsov, reports Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic. The deal will…

  18. How do you pronounce Giannis Antetokounmpo? Don’t ask Bucks fans (video)

    Aug 19, 2013, 1:56 PM EDT

    Giannis Antetokounmpo

    Giannis Antetokounmpo is not a difficult name to pronounce. It sounds exactly how it’s spelled. Somehow – and I really don’t understand how this happened – Milwaukee fans struggled hilariously to say the name of the Bucks’ latest first-round pick (hat tip: Jeremy Schmidt of Bucksketball): Antetokounmpo, a point forward the from Greece who Milwaukee…

  19. Report: Bucks, Larry Sanders close to contract extension

    Aug 8, 2013, 9:50 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Milwaukee Bucks - Game Three

    A lot of fans may not have seen it because it was happening in Milwaukee, but Larry Sanders has become one of the best shot blocking bigs in the NBA (2.8 per game last season, second in the NBA). On a team where the perimeter defenders played like matadors much of the time, his value…

  20. Report: Bucks to trade Luc Richard Mbah a Moute to Kings

    Jul 9, 2013, 3:58 PM EDT

    Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, Mirza Teletovic, Jerry Stackhouse

    If Luc Richard Mbah a Moute’s knees can hold up the Kings have found themselves a nice fit at the three. But that’s a big if. The Sacramento Kings have acquired Mbah a Moute from the Milwaukee Bucks in exchange for a couple second round picks (2016 and 2018), something first reported by Ken Berger…

  21. Report: Bucks reach deal to bring in Carlos Delfino

    Jul 8, 2013, 12:55 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Houston Rockets - Game Three

    How does an O.J. Mayo, Carlos Delfino backcourt sound, Milwaukee? It is possible Brandon Jennings is in that mix as well (that situation is unresolved) but the two guys above are in for the Bucks. Delfino is the latest, having reached a deal with Milwaukee on Sunday night, as first reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of…

  22. While the Lakers wait on Dwight Howard, they’re pursuing outside shooters for Mike D’Antoni’s system

    Jul 2, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Chicago Bulls

    Dwight Howard is the Lakers’ first (and second and third) priority in free agency. They’ll meet with the big man on Tuesday with the hope that their pitch seals the deal on his return to Los Angeles where he will anchor their franchise and lead them into the post Kobe Bryant era. However, as the…

  23. Rockets continue to clear cap space, release Carlos Delfino and Aaron Brooks

    Jun 30, 2013, 4:00 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Houston Rockets - Game Three

    Looking up and down the roster of the Houston Rockets, there are a lot of guys there with smaller deals or team options. That’s by design, of course, in order to maintain maximum financial flexibility with the hopes of landing a top-level free agent — like Dwight Howard, for example. The latest moves, announced by…

  24. Rockets’ Carlos Delfino has foot surgery, out 4 to 6 months

    May 30, 2013, 9:11 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Houston Rockets - Game Three

    Carlos Delfino was having a nice playoffs for the Rockets, averaging 9 points a game, knocking down 35.5 percent of his three pointers and dunking all over Kevin Durant. Then he fractured a bone in his foot and was out. Turns out that fracture required surgery that could keep him out through training camp reports…

  25. Thunder-Rockets Game 6 preview: Kevin Durant continues to dominate Oklahoma City offense

    May 3, 2013, 8:57 PM EDT

    In the last three games, Kevin Durant has scored 115 points, drawn 32 fouls and committed three charges. Not only is he carrying the Thunder’s offense, he’s taking a beating to do it. That probably won’t change in Game 6 with Russell Westbrook out for the rest of the playoffs. Reggie Jackson showed signs of…
