  1. It’s official: Matt Barnes signs with Los Angeles Clippers

    Sep 14, 2012, 4:00 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v San Antonio Spurs

    We told you this was coming and now it is official — Matt Barnes has signed to play with the Los Angeles Clippers this season, the team announced Friday. Getting an athletic player who can defend on the wing for the league minimum is a good signing for the Clippers. While the official terms of…

  2. How Chauncey Billups helped recruit O.J. Mayo to Dallas

    Sep 14, 2012, 2:32 PM EDT

    O.J. Mayo

    O.J. Mayo had some options this summer, none of the long-term deals he was hoping for but there were a few teams calling his agent. One of them was the Dallas Mavericks, where he eventually signed. But one of the key reasons was that Chauncey Billups is a fan of Mavs coach Rick Carlisle. A…

  3. Report: Matt Barnes agrees to sign with L.A. Clippers

    Sep 13, 2012, 11:03 AM EDT

    Matt Barnes

    We told you yesterday that Matt Barnes looked done with the Lakers but was close to a deal to stay in Los Angeles with the Clippers. Now comes this tweet from Sam Amick at Sports Illustrated: Source says Matt Barnes has informed the Clippers he will sign with them. Nothing is ever final until ink…

  4. Report: Matt Barnes nearing deal with Los Angeles Clippers

    Sep 12, 2012, 6:59 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v San Antonio Spurs

    Well, at least Matt Barnes may not have to go shopping for a new house. Barnes spent the past couple seasons with the Los Angeles Lakers but he wasn’t likely to stick around with the team next season — his minutes dried up in the playoffs as his three-point shooting went cold, then he was…

  5. Chauncey Billups says he’s “way ahead of schedule”

    Sep 7, 2012, 9:57 AM EDT

    Arron Afflalo, Chauncey Billups

    When Chauncey Billups tore his Achilles’ last February at age 35, it felt like it might be the end of a fantastic career. But if one guy had the discipline and drive to return, it was Billups. If he was going to fight his way back, the low-end estimates for recovery from that injury of…

  6. A quick look at your top free agents for 2013 (as of now)

    Aug 30, 2012, 10:50 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Clippers - Game Four

    After a summer of rebuilding and trying to put a team together, there are a few teams out there that are clearly looking at next summer as the chance to remake their lineup. Yes, we’re looking at you, Dallas. But you are not alone. So, who are next summer’s big potential free agents? Here is…

  7. The Inbounds: How the West will almost-but-not-actually be won

    Aug 29, 2012, 1:52 PM EDT

    Zach Randolph, Marc Gasol, Kenyon Martin, Blake Griffin

    Parity has become something of a naughty word around intelligent conversation about the NBA. Because parity is another word for “competitive balance” and that was the word the owners and league used to justify killing off 20 percent of the season last year. (When in truth the hard cap wouldn’t help a damn bit with…

  8. Blake Griffin thinks Clippers should hire in-house for GM

    Aug 28, 2012, 10:51 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Seven

    The Clippers have gone through this summer without a general manager since Neil Olshey took the pay raise in Portland — and done pretty well for themselves. They made the obvious move and gave Blake Griffin a max extension. They landed Jamal Crawford and Grant Hill to give them a deeper bench and some veteran…

  9. Clippers not expecting Chauncey Billups back until November

    Aug 23, 2012, 10:15 AM EDT

    Arron Afflalo, Chauncey Billups

    Chauncey Billups says he wants to be ready for the start of the season. But the Clippers are not really counting on the 36-year-old bouncing back from an Achilles injury that fast. In a report discussing how the Clippers will start this season trying to play catch up due to injury, Arash Markazi of ESPNLosAngeles…

  10. Chauncey Billups wants to be ready for start of season

    Aug 20, 2012, 3:40 PM EDT

    Chauncey Billups Clippers

    Chauncey Billups wants to go out on his own terms. Not as a once-fantastic player and NBA finals MVP whose career was cut short by an Achilles injury, but as a guy who came back and helped the Clippers reach new heights as both a player and almost an on-court coach. It usually takes about…

  11. The Inbounds: Dwight Howard and the NBA’s arms race gone too far

    Aug 10, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Dwyane Wade, Dwight Howard

    “Weapons are like money, no one knows the meaning of enough.” – Martin Amis In 2008, it was the Celtics getting both an aging Kevin Garnett and an aging Ray Allen. Then it was the Lakers getting Pau Gasol, commonly a sub-star due to his market at the time. Then came The Decision, Melodrama, the…

  12. Clippers trade for Willie Green from Hawks

    Jul 30, 2012, 8:31 PM EDT

    Raptors forward Anderson defends against  Hawks guard Green in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Atlanta

    If things go well for the Clippers, Willie Green will rarely see the court. They have Jamal Crawford to play the two guard spot and they hope Chauncey Billups will be healthy and eating up minutes soon. But, things rarely to plan and the Clippers want to be prepared, so they announced they have traded…

  13. Reports: Grant Hill near deal to sign with Clippers

    Jul 17, 2012, 1:20 PM EDT

    Grant Hill, Steve Nash, Ben Wallace

    Grant Hill is going to Los Angeles, but not exactly like buddy Steve Nash planned. Hill has agreed to terms and is finalizing a deal with the Los Angeles Clippers, according to multiple sources. John Gambadoro of KTAR in Phoenix broke the story, and Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports and the NBC Sports Network has…

  14. Winderman: Lin’s offer sheet not problem, Knicks entire payroll is

    Jul 16, 2012, 2:25 PM EDT

    New York Knicks point guard Jeremy Lin and Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony looks on against the Atlanta Hawks in the second quarter of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    This is where many get the NBA luxury tax wrong: The third year on the offer sheet extended by the Rockets to Jeremy Lin will not cost the Knicks $43 million when factoring in the luxury tax, as some have extrapolated. It will cost the Knicks the $15 million on the third year of that…

  15. Clippers re-sign Chauncey Billups. Somewhere CP3 smiles.

    Jul 13, 2012, 5:32 PM EDT

    Chauncey Billups Clippers

    Chris Paul said he really wanted to see the Clippers bring back Chauncey Billups. So the Clippers are bringing back a 36-year-old guard who just had a major Achilles injury. Because making Chris Paul happy matters (remember, he’s a free agent next summer). The Clippers have reached an agreement for Billups to return to the…

  16. Report: Clippers reach deals with Jamal Crawford, Chauncey Billups

    Jul 5, 2012, 2:26 PM EDT

    jamal-crawford-blazers-clippers

    The battle for Los Angeles games next year are going to be amazing. And we could see those battles deep in the playoffs. The Clippers addressed a key need Thursday by reaching a three-year agreement with Jamal Crawford, reports the Los Angeles Times. At the same time they reached a deal to bring back injured…

  17. Ray Allen chase involves Celtics, Heat, Clippers, Grizzlies

    Jul 3, 2012, 9:45 AM EDT

    Ray Allen, Nick Young

    Ray Allen may be 36 and have to have off-season ankle surgery after fighting through bone spurs all playoffs long, but that’s not slowing teams down much. The chase for Ray Allen seems to be a four team race, reports David Aldridge of NBA.com — Boston, Memphis, Clippers, Miami. It really comes down to what…

  18. Clippers ready offers to Jamal Crawford, Chauncey Billups

    Jul 3, 2012, 8:02 AM EDT

    Jamal Crawford

    The Clippers need a two guard who can help them diversify their offense (we saw what happened when the Spurs stifled Chris Paul in the playoffs, it wasn’t pretty). Jamal Crawford can do that, even if last year’s Crawford should not be confused with the Sixth Man of the Year version. On another note, Paul…

  19. Long shot Odom pulls self out of Olympic consideration; Lin leaves USA Select Team

    Jul 2, 2012, 8:32 PM EDT

    Tribeca/ESPN Sports Film Festival  Gala: Benji - 2012 Tribeca Film Festival

    He was a long shot anyway after the disaster of a season he just had, but Lamar Odom — who had an invite to Team USA Training Camp — is dropping out of consideration. Via the only other national media member that went to my high school, ESPNLosAngeles’ Arash Markazi, on twitter: Lamar Odom tells…

  20. Report: Anthony Davis severely sprains ankle, out of Olympics

    Jul 2, 2012, 1:09 PM EDT

    Draft Hornets Basketball

    And Team USA loses another potential big man for the roster. Recent No. 1 pick Anthony Davis severely sprained his ankle in a workout for the Hornets, which leaves him very unlikely to be ready when USA Basketball opens training camp Friday (July 6) in Las Vegas and he is now out for the games,…

  21. Free Agency Rundown 7.1.12: The movers, they are a shaking

    Jul 1, 2012, 10:31 PM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v Atlanta Hawks

    Here’s what’s going on with free agency news and rumors as the moratorium period began Sunday night at 12:01 a.m..Do not, by any means, consider this comprehensive. There’s so much going on, we’re just trying to get you an overview. (HT: Hoopshype, IAmAGM.com) Atlanta Hawks Well, for starters, they’re exploring a deal for Joe Johnson…

  22. NBA, union reach deal on Bird rights that is win for Knicks

    Jun 29, 2012, 8:09 PM EDT

    Injured New York Knicks guard Jeremy Lin reacts during pregame ceremonies before the Knicks play against the Miami Heat in Game 2 of their first round NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoffs in Miami

    This gets complex but here is the bottom line for Knicks fans — you can re-sign Jeremy Lin now and still have your mid-level exception to chase free agents such Steve Nash or Ray Allen this summer. Remember last week that an arbitrator ruled in favor of the union — who filed on behalf of Lin,…

  23. Just a reminder, teams can use amnesty for week staring July 11

    Jun 25, 2012, 1:48 PM EDT

    Metta World Peace

    There are a whole lot of interesting amnesty clause questions out there this season — will the Heat use it on Mike Miller? Will the Lakers use it on Metta World Peace? How quickly will the Suns use it on Josh Childress? Here is a quick reminder of how the Amnesty Clause works. • Teams…

  24. It wasn’t about money, GM Olshey chose Portland over L.A.

    Jun 5, 2012, 8:46 AM EDT

    Neil Olshey

    When the Clippers — with general manager Neil Olshey at the helm —acquired Chris Paul, I kept saying that the only thing that could really screw them up now was owner Donald Sterling. With the excitement and winning on the court, we tend to think the Clippers as an organization have changed — they are…

  25. Sudden reversal: GM Olshey leaving Clippers for Trail Blazers

    Jun 4, 2012, 9:13 PM EDT

    Neil Olshey

    This was a fast 360. First rumors circulated that Clippers general manager Neil Olshey had met with Trail Blazers owner Paul Allen about that franchise’s open general manager’s position. The Clippers responded by talking to Olshey and announcing last week they had reached a “deal in principle” with him to stay in Los Angeles. But…
