  1. Report: Bulls considering moving Joakim Noah or Luol Deng for pick and cap exception

    Jun 23, 2012, 9:44 PM EDT

    Carlos Boozer, Luol Deng

    The Bulls are in a lot of trade conversations, which is kind of weird. The team was the No.1 overall seed in the playoffs despite Rose having missed all that time, and Rose was the number one, no questions asked, absolute reason the Bulls fell to the Sixers. Why would they mess with what’s working…

  2. Will the new CBA give David Stern less power to punish players?

    Nov 30, 2011, 6:53 PM EDT

    Ron Artest Parade

    TrueHoop’s Henry Abbott suspects that it might: David Stern has more than a little power, which is especially clear when players really break the rules. After the unrestrained brawl known as “the Auburn Hills incident,” for example, the fortunes of the Pacers and Pistons franchises and several players hung in the balance. Were there hearings…

  3. Report: Age limit under review, but could stay the same for 2012

    Nov 27, 2011, 10:45 AM EDT

    2011 NBA Draft

    Among the so-called “B-List Issues” being worked on before a formal vote will be held, the age limit consideration could be the one that impacts the NBA the most and certainly draws the most fan interest. And Yahoo! Sports reports that it’s such a big issue, it may not get resolved right away. The NBA…

  4. Report: Tyson Chandler looking at playing in China

    Nov 20, 2011, 4:30 PM EDT

    Tyson Chandler of the Dallas Mavericks c

    Tyson Chandler has every reason to want to push for an NBA season, more than most. He’s an unrestricted free agent whenever the offseason actually begins, and this is his last major contract. He’s coming off being the deciding factor in the NBA Finals (outside of Dirk’s brilliance or LeBron’s, ahem, struggles), and is a…

  5. Wizards rookie Chris Singleton shows some perspective on the lockout

    Nov 4, 2011, 3:29 PM EDT

    Chris Singleton

    The NBPA hasn’t done the best job of managing their PR front. David Stern has done his damnedest to control the public message of the lockout, all while the factions that have reportedly formed among the players threaten to decertify the union entirely and rip the 2011-2012 season apart. Yet individually, the lockout has provided…

  6. After deliberation, lockout negotiators decide not to bring back federal mediator George Cohen

    Nov 1, 2011, 7:24 PM EDT

    George Cohen

    UPDATE (7:24 PM): Per Howard Beck of the New York Times, George Cohen will not be coming back to the collective bargaining sessions after all. Plus, there remains no scheduled time or date for the resumption of talks. Delightful news all around. 2:18 PM: The negotiations to end the NBA lockout are not ongoing —…

  7. Reports: Lockout talks break down over BRI split

    Oct 28, 2011, 4:53 PM EDT

    David Stern

    According to multiple sources, the lockout talks between the player’s union and the owners have hit an impasse over the BRI split. The players want 52%, the owners want to give them 50%, and neither side is budging. Talks for the day are reportedly over, and according to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, no future talks have been scheduled…

  8. Derrick Rose says it’s Stern’s fault, yada yada… wait, who’s in charge of the union?

    Oct 15, 2011, 11:28 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    This is the paragraph I’m supposed to blockquote you and pull the news story off of. Guess what? A member of the player’s union thinks David Stern and the owners are mean and it’s their fault for the lockout! TOTALLY NEW INFORMATION. “It’s sad. It’s very sad. But everybody knows it’s not our fault. It’s…

  9. If we get a season, not all the canceled games are gone forever

    Oct 13, 2011, 9:01 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks

    There’s a whole lot of confusion over the first two weeks of the season that have been canceled. The league doesn’t know how many games will be canceled, so it can’t make any announcements on the status of the games that have already been canceled. The assumption is that the games that were lost are…

  10. Udonis Haslem gets cleared to play basketball, would like to play NBA basketball soon

    Oct 10, 2011, 5:46 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's Udonis Haslem celebrates a basket against the Chicago Bulls during Game 2 of their NBA Eastern Conference Finals playoff basketball game in Chicago

    Udonis Haslem‘s twitter account is less than 24 years old, but he’s already using it to post major news and his opinions about the lockout: How ironic. Just got cleared by doctors for full workouts. Hardwood here I come. LET US PLAY #STANDUNITED A foot injury caused Haslem to miss most of the regular season and…

  11. Nash makes twitter plea for owners to end lockout

    Oct 10, 2011, 5:01 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Phoenix Suns

    Steve Nash has never been shy about his opinions, and today he’s using his twitter account to ask the owners to end the ongoing NBA lockout. Here’s what he tweeted: The NBA has experienced over 60 yrs of growth with new growth projected using the current model. After a banner year the players are still willing…

  12. NBA Lockout: BRI is still the elephant in the room

    Oct 1, 2011, 9:59 PM EDT

    NBA basketball players Wade, Anthony and Paul gesture to fans as they arrive at a promotional event at an outdoor basketball court in Beijing

    The NBA labor negotiations’ approach to the issue of BRI was pretty simple on Saturday. See no evil, hear no evil, see no conflict, make no progress. Both sides took BRI off the table and focused on systemic issues, trying to “break down the mountain” as Derek Fisher put it. It wasn’t a bad approach.…

  13. Dennis Rodman says the players need to get ready, because the paycuts are a-comin’

    Aug 13, 2011, 9:43 PM EDT

    Inductee Dennis Rodman acknowledges the crowd after delivering his acceptance speech during the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame Class of 2011 Enshrinement Ceremony in Springfield

    Dennis Rodman fought with everyone when he was in the league. Players. Management. Himself. But on Friday night, prior to his induction to the Basketball Hall of Fame, Rodman called out someone you wouldn’t expect. The player’s union. From the Chicago Tribune: “Its going to be a lot worse. There probably wont be a season,”…

  14. After all that, the Knicks still dodged the luxury tax

    Jul 23, 2011, 9:28 AM EDT

    Donnie Walsh

    The Knicks went from being a money-burning loser to a cost-effective playoff team with two superstars in just a few years under Donnie Walsh. How cost effective? They brought in a second superstar last season in Carmelo Anthony after paying through the nose for Amar’e Stoudemire, and they still dodged the luxury tax. From the…

  15. League sends last season’s financial data to union. Baby steps.

    Mar 30, 2011, 6:59 PM EDT

    NBA & NBA Players Association Announce New CBA

    At this point, any little step towards the NBA owners and players union actually sitting down and having a serious conversation should be taken as a good sign. So, in that vein, we tell you that the owners have sent the union the league financials from last season, as Ken Berger at CBSSports.com reports. The…

  16. Carmelo’s move may make CBA negotiations nastier

    Feb 25, 2011, 7:06 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony James Dolan

    Utah Jazz owner Greg Miller talked about it when he tried to explain to a shaken fan base why he felt he had to trade Deron Williams away. His argument: it’s a new era of stars congregating in big markets. The players have taken control of the process in a way they have not before.…

  17. CBA update: Owners, players sit down in same room. That’s about it.

    Feb 19, 2011, 12:51 AM EDT

    billy-hunter

    This was the one bit of good news — for the first time in two-and-a-half months the owners and players sat down in the same room and talked about a new Collective Bargaining Agreement. Words like “amicable” and “thawed” were thrown around by Billy Hunter, executive director of the National Basketball Players Association (the union)…

  18. Carmelo Anthony drama has owners thinking franchise tag

    Feb 15, 2011, 11:37 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Denver Nuggets

    What do NBA owners want out of the collective bargaining agreement? More money. Remember, it is always about the money. Who generates that money? Don’t say “the players” because it’s much more narrow than that. While there are 12 to 15 guys on an NBA roster, only a couple of those players directly generate more…

  19. Kobe Bryant is open to playing in Italy in the event of a lockout

    Feb 12, 2011, 11:21 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    Anyone familiar with Kobe Bryant‘s mythology is aware that he spent a significant amount of his childhood in Italy while his father played ball there. He speaks fluent Italian, and has demonstrated a very real love of the country in past interviews. It turns out he’s so receptive to the country, he’s amiable to the…

  20. Owners, players may not talk CBA All-Star Weekend. Can you say lockout?

    Jan 20, 2011, 8:50 AM EDT

    NBA & NBA Players Association Announce New CBA

    At the start of the season, David Stern said that come All-Star Weekend in February, we’d have a better idea where the owners and players stood in talking about a new Collective Bargaining Agreemement and if we were headed to a lockout. After months of smaller meetings and discussion, that weekend is when everyone would…

  21. Stephon Marbury sums up the lockout talk pretty well

    Jan 7, 2011, 12:30 PM EDT

    marbury_china

    Halfway around the world, playing hoops in a coastal Chinese city most Americans have never heard of, Stephon Marbury is watching the NBA’s Collective Bargaining Agreement negotiations unfold. And he gets it, just check out this quote from a New York Magazine profile. “There’s definitely going to be a lockout in the NBA after this…

  22. LeBron says he never supported contraction

    Dec 27, 2010, 5:29 PM EDT

    Nets Heat Basketball

    When LeBron James recently said that he believes the league’s talent level has become “watered down,” and illustrated his point by asking people to imagine what the league would look like if the best players from the Timberwolves and Nets were distributed among the rest of the teams in the NBA. Although LeBron did say…

  23. Latest CBA posturing move: NBA players voting to decertify the union

    Dec 13, 2010, 2:19 PM EDT

    Ballot-box-001

    It sounds ominous, but it’s no more ominous than all the other bad signs out there. This is really more about posturing and having your ducks in a row before heading back to the negotiating table. Players from at least two NBA teams have unanimously voted to decertify the NBA Players Association, the players union,…

  24. Lockout or no, Jennings and others won’t be headed back to Europe

    Nov 20, 2010, 9:31 AM EDT

    jenningseuro

    We informed you yesterday of Brandon Jennings making some noise about heading back to Europe in the event of a lockout (an event which at this point has the likelihood of the sun rising in the East tomorrow). Today comes word that Jennings can go ahead and flip his leftover Euros into dollars, because he’s…

  25. Chris Kaman has a piggy bank ready in case of lockout

    Oct 24, 2010, 11:17 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Clippers

    NBA players make a lot, I don’t know if you’ve heard. Millions, in fact. So when they say they’re saving, it’s not really all that notable. After all, they do get a per-diem, which continues to blow my mind. They make millions of dollars, but then they get a considerable amount of money just to…
