  1. Sacramento’s Carl Landry out 3-4 months following hip surgery

    Oct 14, 2013, 5:15 PM EST

    Carl Landry

    This is a blow to Sacramento — they went out and got Carl Landry this summer (along with Luc Richard Mbah a Moute and Greivis Vasquez) to provide some veteran stabilization behind their young core. Now Landry is going to be out three to four months following surgery on a hip flexor, the team announced…

  2. Cavaliers’ Jarrett Jack out 10 days with sore knee

    Oct 14, 2013, 4:59 PM EST

    Jarrett Jack, Jameer Nelson

    Jarrett Jack is going to be popular in Cleveland and he’s going to win them some games. He can backup Kyrie Irving at the one and Dion Waiters at the two, he can create shots for others plus he is good as a catch-and-shoot guard. He’s a solid defender. Well, he can do all that…

  3. Tristan Thompson talks switch from left to right-handed shooter

    Oct 14, 2013, 1:51 PM EST

    Tristan Thompson

    Through two preseason games, Tristan Thompson is 11-of-18 shooting for the Cleveland Cavaliers. That’s 61.1 percent for those of you scoring at home. It’s just two preseason games, be careful reading too much into it, but maybe it portends a big jump from last season when he shot 48.8 percent from the field. This isn’t…

  4. Cavaliers still searching for small forward to replace that guy who left town

    Oct 14, 2013, 10:33 AM EST

    Earl Clark, Miroslav Raduljica

    Since LeBron James bolted Cleveland for Miami, the small forward spot has been a black hole for the Cavaliers. There was Jamario Moon. Then Omri Casspi. Then Alonzo Gee, who is still on the roster. Now Earl Clark is getting a shot. Not exactly a murderer’s row. The Cavaliers have built a team they like…

    Kobe Bryant

    Last season: It was supposed to be yet another year spent contending for a championship for a storied Lakers franchise that already has 16 of them. L.A. loaded up with free agent talent in Dwight Howard and Steve Nash, and was on paper the team most believed would stand in the way of a second straight…

  6. Cavaliers’ Tyler Zeller had emergency appendectomy Friday

    Oct 12, 2013, 10:59 AM EST

    Tyler Zeller

    Tyler Zeller didn’t play for the Cavaliers Friday night and at the time it was listed as due to the strained hip flexor that he has battled through camp. But instead he was having an emergency appendectomy — having his appendix removed — tweets Cavaliers radio play-by-play announcer John Michael. This is a common operation…

  7. Anthony Bennett scores 14 fourth quarter points in Cavaliers’ preseason win over Magic (VIDEO)

    Oct 12, 2013, 9:30 AM EST

    Anthony Bennett

    When the Cavaliers selected Anthony Bennett with the number one overall pick in this summer’s draft, the move came as a bit of a surprise.  Truth be told, there was no obvious, clear-cut choice to be made, but Bennett was recovering from shoulder surgery, so teams didn’t get a chance to see him during the…

  8. Anthony Bennett struggling with conditioning as he starts NBA career

    Oct 11, 2013, 9:04 PM EST

    Anthony Bennett

    Part of the reason it was a surprise Anthony Bennett was the No. 1 overall pick is that nobody had seen him workout — he had shoulder surgery and did not go through the NBA Draft Combine, or do pre-draft workouts this season. After that he couldn’t play in Summer League either. So maybe it’s…

  9. Karl Malone doesn’t bring his gun, bow to Jazz practice. So he can focus.

    Oct 10, 2013, 3:44 PM EST

    Karl Malone

    Karl Malone is back working with the Utah Jazz as a special assistant coach — Derrick Favors, Enes Kanter and the rest of the young Jazz front line are now learning the tricks of the Mailman. And Malone is focused on that — at least until next month and his annual hunting trip, he told…

  10. In old interview, Kyrie Irving tells children he won’t leave Cavaliers like LeBron did (VIDEO)

    Oct 9, 2013, 10:26 PM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers v New Jersey Nets

    Kyrie Irving has been saying he has no intention of leaving the Cavaliers in free agency a lot the last few months, though he’s mostly qualified it slightly by adding the words “right now” into any conversation surrounding the topic. Making its way around the Web right now is Irving’s two-year-old answer to the question,…

  11. Kendrick Perkins says he looked himself in the mirror after last playoffs

    Oct 9, 2013, 5:40 PM EST

    Kendrick Perkins

    Kendrick Perkins is who Kendrick Perkins is. After a decade in the league we all have a pretty good idea what that is. But after a rough playoffs last season — 2.2 points a game on 26.3 percent shooting with a PER of -0.6 — he became a scapegoat for frustrated Thunder fans. Why would…

  12. Jarrett Jack’s behind-the-back assist for Anthony Bennett’s first NBA bucket (VIDEO)

    Oct 9, 2013, 11:03 AM EST

    Anthony Bennett

    Jarrett Jack is going to win over a lot of people in Cleveland — he is fun to watch and a great guard to have coming in off the bench (the Warriors will miss him). Among those new fans — Anthony Bennett. The No. 1 overall pick from last season got his first NBA points…

  13. Doug Collins says he is done coaching, the business has changed

    Oct 8, 2013, 7:45 PM EST

    Doug Collins

    Doug Collins will be back on your television this year, working for ABC/ESPN as an analyst before games and also doing some color commentary. He was in Philadelphia the last three years including this past season when, as he put it, the Sixers swung for the fences with Andrew Bynum. And whiffed. It was a…

  14. Monday And-1 Links: Kris Humphries vs. Rajon Rondo, who ya got?

    Oct 7, 2013, 6:23 PM EST

    Rajon Rondo

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points more than Esquire loves Scarlett Johansson… • In the Celtics locker room there is…

  15. Dwight Howard responds to Kareem’s attack on his game, mental fortitude

    Oct 4, 2013, 4:21 PM EST

    Houston Rockets Introduce Dwight Howard

    We need some games soon, because I am weary of talking about Dwight Howard leaving the Lakers. But not everyone is done talking about it — Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was talking about it. Kareem and Howard have never meshed well. Which is putting it kindly. They are civil, but very different people with different views on…

  16. Cavaliers’ Bennett, Varejao cleared for basketball activities

    Oct 1, 2013, 11:51 AM EST

    Anthony Bennett

    We have some rare good injury news out of a training camp: The Cleveland Cavalier’s No. 1 pick Anthony Bennett and the guy he may someday replace in the lineup, Anderson Varejao, both have been fully cleared for basketball activities entering training camp. This was expected, but now it is official. Bennett had shoulder surgery…

  17. Chase Budinger has knee surgery, out indefinitely

    Oct 1, 2013, 11:14 AM EST

    Chase Budinger, Joakim Noah

    In today’s NBA teams are hesitant to give timelines for injury recovery. You can thank Andrew Bynum and Derrick Rose for that; teams are trying to avoid a public relations hit with their fans. Following reports of cartilage damage that cause swelling in his knee, Chase Budinger had knee surgery on Monday and  had his…

  18. Andrew Bynum cut his hair and it looks… normal

    Sep 30, 2013, 10:02 PM EST

    via @Cavs

    While we may be skeptical about when he plays (and how well he plays if/when he does) there are certainly still good things for our entertainment dollar having Andrew Bynum in the NBA. Primarily his wild hair choices. Except he showed up to Cavaliers media day on Monday looking all corporate and normal. What’s next?…

  19. Andrew Bynum ramping up activity but no timetable. That sounds familiar.

    Sep 30, 2013, 3:56 PM EST

    Andrew Bynum

    “I feel pretty good and I am definitely getting better… I think if all the beans were on the table, I would be out there (playing right now).” That’s Andrew Bynum from the Sixers training camp last year, on Oct. 9 to be exact. We bring you that as a bit of context for the…

  20. Sixers’ managing owner defends decision to trade for Andrew Bynum

    Sep 29, 2013, 9:30 PM EST

    Newly-acquired Philadelphia 76ers player Bynum smiles during a news conference at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia

    When the Sixers traded for Andrew Bynum before the beginning of last season, it appeared to be a calculated risk worth taking at the time. Bynum was coming off of an All-Star season where he averaged a career-best 18.7 points and 11.8 rebounds, and despite his history of injury, the team wasn’t going anywhere with…

  21. John Wall says Wizards need to win for him to become an All-Star

    Sep 28, 2013, 9:30 PM EST

    John Wall

    John Wall received a max contract extension from the Wizards this summer that will see him earn $80 million over the next five years. Now that he’s being paid like an All-Star, it’s time for him to go out and actually perform well enough to deserve the honor. Wall was limited to just 49 games…

  22. It’s Friday, what you could use is some Kyrie Irving highlights

    Sep 27, 2013, 12:02 PM EST

    Kyrie Irving

    Admit it, it’s Friday, if you’re going to the office today your just going through the motions when you get there. Pretty much the same thing for you students, if you’re in class you’re more likely reading this than taking notes. So, how about some Kyrie Irving highlights for your Friday? You’re welcome. Despite missing…

  23. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: Cleveland Cavaliers

    Sep 26, 2013, 8:45 AM EST

    Kyrie Irving

    Last season: Kyrie Irving became the youngest All-Star since LeBron James, but the Cavaliers were decidedly awful throughout the year, finishing 24-58. Only the Bobcats were worse both offensively and defensively, Injuries took a major toll (more on that below), but the season never looked promising at any point, regardless. On the bright side, Dion…

  24. Lakers GM says expect more Pau Gasol… and eventually Kobe

    Sep 25, 2013, 4:34 PM EST

    Pau Gasol Kobe Bryant

    Kobe Bryant will be back when he’s back, and when he is you can expect him to play like Kobe Bryant — he’s not changing. But what else can you expect from the Lakers this season? What about next summer? Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak met with the media on Wednesday and basically reiterated previous answers…

  25. Kyrie Irving shows off dance skills at South African school (VIDEO)

    Sep 25, 2013, 4:19 PM EST

    kyrie

    Kyrie Irving didn’t spend his entire summer obsessing about basketball, in a sign he’s a better person than that he went to South Africa with UNICEF to meet with children there and bring light to their situation. And, get in a dance off in front of a classroom. I give this round to the kid.
