Chris Paul

  1. Winderman: Dallas blew it all up for this?

    Jul 3, 2012, 9:40 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks' Nowitzki walks off the court during a timeout against the Oklahoma City Thunder during their NBA Western Conference quarter-final playoff basketball game in Dallas

    The Mavericks blew it up for this? To finish as runner-up for Deron Williams? The Mavericks put aside one of Dirk Nowitzki‘s precious few quality remaining seasons on the promise of potential hope? Yes, the Mavericks still could recover next summer, if Chris Paul doesn’t reach a new deal with the Clippers, if Dwight Howard…

  2. Report: Lakers willing to offer Bynum, World Peace for Howard, if he will stay in L.A.

    Jul 3, 2012, 2:29 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Los Angeles Lakers

    Dwight Howard still has some leverage over in where he gets traded. Not because the Magic give a rat’s a** what he wants, if they could trade him to a team from Siberia in the Russian league they would do it. Rather it’s because he can walk away as a free agent next summer from…

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

    Jul 3, 2012, 9:45 AM EST

    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…

  4. Clippers ready offers to Jamal Crawford, Chauncey Billups

    Jul 3, 2012, 8:02 AM EST

    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…

  5. Kobe, LeBron lead list of nine who secured berths on Team USA

    Jul 2, 2012, 11:24 PM EST

    Olympics Day 16 - Basketball

    There are no surprises — did you think Kobe Bryant or LeBron James were going to be left off the team? —  but now we know nine of the 12 players who will represent the United States in the London Olympic basketball tournament. USA Basketball president Jerry Colangelo laid it out for Chris Tomasson of…

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

    Jul 2, 2012, 8:32 PM EST

    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…

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

    Jul 1, 2012, 10:31 PM EST

    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…

  8. Chris Paul declines Clippers extension offer. It’s just business.

    Jul 1, 2012, 12:29 PM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Charlotte Bobcats

    This was more like the opening gambit of a chess game — it played out exactly to form, with the real moves that matter still to come. The Clippers have offered Chris Paul a max extension to his deal, a three-year, $60 million offer, reports Chris Broussard of ESPN (multiple sources reported before Friday that…

  9. Clippers to quickly, quietly sign Blake Griffin to 5-year max extension

    Jun 30, 2012, 3:59 PM EST

    Blake Griffin

    This is about as much of a surprise as Tom Cruise burning through another marriage. The Clippers top July 1 free agent priority will be signing star forward Blake Griffin to a max extension to his rookie deal. And it sounds like that is going to happen no problem, reports Ramona Shelburne at ESPNLosAngeles.com. The…

  10. Dwyane Wade needs knee surgery, withdraws from Olympics

    Jun 28, 2012, 4:14 PM EST

    Dwyane Wade Team USA Olympics

    That Dwyane Wade played as well as he did through the Heat’s title run considering how bad his left knee was in an impressive feat. And his knee was bad. Wade has learned he will need knee surgery and today called USA Basketball president Jerry Colangelo and coach Mike Krzyzewski to withdraw from Team USA…

  11. Report: Kings reject Rockets’ offer of Lowry for No. 5 pick

    Jun 27, 2012, 9:18 PM EST

    West Virginia v Connecticut

    UPDATE 9:18 pm: David Aldridge of NBA.com reports that the Kings have shot down the Rockets’ offer to get the No. 5 pick. But their offer of guard Kyle Lowry along with the 16th pick overall to the Sacramento Kings in exchange for the fifth pick overall and forward Chuck Hayes was rejected Wednesday by…

  12. Report: Lakers talking Gasol for Josh Smith, testing trade waters

    Jun 27, 2012, 4:31 PM EST

    Pau Gasol Josh Smith

    We said it before, the Lakers need to make a move if they want to get past the second round next year. And while no move seems imminent, the Lakers are testing all kinds of trade scenarios out there, according to multiple reports. Maybe the most interesting is with the Hawks, via the twitter of…

  13. How much better does Anthony Davis make the Hornets?

    Jun 26, 2012, 11:27 AM EST

    Final Four - Louisville v Kentucky

    In our instant world — where we can download almost any song ever written in seconds, where even our oatmeal is instant — we don’t like to wait for things. If it takes more than three clicks I’m frustrated. But building an NBA team to contention is an exercise in patience. Well, except in Miami.…

  14. Report: Hornets will match any offer for Eric Gordon

    Jun 23, 2012, 12:00 PM EST

    New Orleans Hornets v Phoenix Suns

    One of the ways people found to discredit the Hornets’ trade of Chris Paul to the Clippers (as opposed to trading him to the Lakers for three old guys, one of whom is a space cadet) was the question of Eric Gordon‘s free agency. Either he wasn’t good enough as a return trade piece, or…

  15. Report: List down to three for Orlando Magic GM post

    Jun 12, 2012, 11:56 AM EST

    Image (1) new-orlando-magic-logo-thumb-250x179-13629.jpg for post 6226

    No pressure Orlando, no need to rush. Not like you have any big decisions ahead. The Orlando Magic search for a general manager — which will be followed by the search for a coach, which will be followed by deciding what to do about Dwight Howard — is down to three people, tweets Adrian Wojnarowski…

  16. Clippers put together list of GM candidates (willing to work cheap)

    Jun 11, 2012, 2:13 PM EST

    Vandeweghe

    The Clippers are on the hunt for a new general manager. One they said they’d reached a deal with in principle when clearly they hadn’t. Now we know why — Neil Olshey made the same decision you, I or any sane person would have. Broderick Turner did some digging for the Los Angeles Times and…

  17. Report: Clippers looking at Kiki Vandeweghe as GM

    Jun 6, 2012, 2:47 PM EST

    Vandeweghe

    If you have wondered what Kiki Vandeweghe has been up to since leaving the Denver Nuggets the answer is he’s been a pre/post game analyst for Clippers games on Fox Sports West in Los Angeles. So it shouldn’t be a shock to see his name come up in regards to the Clippers suddenly vacant GM…

  18. Clippers GM change not expected to change Griffin situation

    Jun 5, 2012, 10:47 AM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Seven

    Whoever gets brought in to replace Neil Olshey as general manager of the Los Angeles Clippers has one big job — make Chris Paul happy. Paul can leave as a free agent next summer and the GM has to keep him happy and get him to commit to LA. That means get him players to…

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

    Jun 5, 2012, 8:46 AM EST

    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…

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

    Jun 4, 2012, 9:13 PM EST

    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…

  21. Thunder-Spurs Game 5: San Antonio needs to find its offense

    Jun 4, 2012, 2:27 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game Four

    San Antonio needs to find its offense to win Game 5 tonight, or this series will be over in a couple days. It falls to the Spurs’ big three — Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili need to get free and penetrate the lane to break down the Thunder defense, Tim Duncan just has to play…

  22. When the process matters: Why Charlotte should trade the No.2 pick

    Jun 3, 2012, 7:00 PM EST

    Image (1) bobcats_logo-thumb-250x182-19284.jpg for post 3934

    Let’s start off with some instant rebuttal to the premature outcry that headline above is going to muster. First, the basics. The Charlotte Bobcats, in a continuing pattern regarding their awful, horrendous, terrible franchise history, lost the lottery’s No.1 pick despite a 1-in-4 chance to land Anthony Davis. The Bobcats are an awful, awful basketball…

  23. The New Orleans Hornets and a matter of serendipity, not conspiracy

    Jun 2, 2012, 12:30 PM EST

    Dell Demps

    Maybe they’re right. Maybe the league, in the face of unfathomable depths of reason to avoid the concept like the plague (which I have outlined here), really did rig the 2012 NBA Lottery in order to help the Hornets after a rough year, or dot the i’s on the sale of the team to Tom…

  24. Clippers reach “agreement in principle” to keep GM Olshey

    Jun 1, 2012, 11:03 PM EST

    Neil Olshey

    Every time there has been a general manager vacancy lately, it seems Clippers’ Neil Olshey’s name has come up. With good reason. Not only did he stick with it and pull off the trade for Chris Paul, before that he had taken steps to change the culture in the Clippers locker room and build around…

  25. Anthony Davis who? Hornets’ Gordon going to test free agent market

    May 31, 2012, 7:34 PM EST

    Eric Gordon

    Eric Gordon was the centerpiece of the guys coming back to New Orleans in the Chris Paul trade. Gordon has flown under the NBA radar somewhat, but he is the best young two-guard in the game and is a building block for the Hornets future. So he has to be excited about New Orleans winning…
