    Phoenix Suns v Denver Nuggets

    Which of these players would you have most liked on your team last season: Andres Nocioni, Baron Davis, Brendan Haywood, Charlie Bell, Chris Mihm, Corey Maggette, Damien Wilkins, Earl Watson, Elton Brand, Fred Jones, Hedo Turkoglu, Joel Przybilla, John Salmons, Lamar Odom, Mehmet Okur, Metta World Peace, Michael Redd, Rashard Lewis, Rasual Butler, Ricky Davis,…

  2. Anthony Bennett, Steven Adams bring NBA Draft to new international levels

    Anthony Bennett from UNLV reacts after being selected by the Clevland Cavaliers as the first overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft in Brooklyn

    NEW YORK – Anthony Bennett – who became the NBA’s highest-drafted Canadian when the Cavaliers picked him No. 1 in last night’s NBA Draft – said seven dangerous words in his press conference. “I’m not a big fan of hockey,” Bennett said as reporters shot each other nervous looks, wondering what fate his home country…

  3. Three winners, three losers from NBA Draft. You bet Anthony Bennett is a winner.

    Jun 28, 2013, 3:04 AM EST

    Anthony Bennett from UNLV reacts after being selected by the Clevland Cavaliers as the first overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft in Brooklyn

    I will admit this up front: declaring a winner in the NBA draft the night of the draft is premature. We can accurately say tonight that Indiana was a winner in the 2010 draft (Paul George at No. 10, Lance Stephenson at No. 40), but we don’t know how this draft will ultimately play out.…

  5. Anthony Bennett to Cavaliers kick-starts wild, unpredictable draft

    Jun 27, 2013, 10:01 PM EST

    Bennett from the UNLV shakes hands with NBA Commissioner Stern after being selected by the Cavaliers as the first overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft in Brooklyn

    NEW YORK – Anthony Bennett began shaking his head side to side just as a reporter began a question about whether Bennett saw any signs of becoming the No. 1 pick. The question was the only thing Bennett – and the rest of us – saw coming tonight. Against all odds, the Cavaliers passed on…

  6. Shocker: Cavs take Anthony Bennett with the No. 1 pick in the 2013 NBA Draft

    Jun 27, 2013, 7:52 PM EST

    Anthony Bennett

    Literally nobody saw this coming. The Cleveland Cavaliers have selected UNLV’s Anthony Bennett with the number one pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, and it comes as a huge surprise. Most mock drafts had Nerlens Noel at the top of the board in the weeks leading up to the draft, and Alex Len began to…

  7. Report: Cavaliers make trade offer for Kevin Love, Timberwolves take seconds to say no

    Jun 26, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Kevin Love

    Why do you think Flip Saunders was brought in to be the new general manager of the Minnesota Timberwolves? Yes, David Kahn’s act was old, but Saunders is there with one goal — repair the team’s relationship with Kevin Love so he doesn’t opt out and bolt in the summer of 2015. By all accounts…

  8. Reports: Celtics want first round pick for Pierce; looking at younger coaches

    Jun 25, 2013, 1:16 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    Let the rebuilding process begin. With the Doc Rivers to the Clippers deal in place (waiting on the Clippers and Rivers to finish hammering out contract details) the Celtics have started to look around at trade options for Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett, and they starting to think about what coach to bring in. And…

  9. Report: Cavaliers haven’t warmed up to taking Noel as top pick

    Jun 20, 2013, 11:37 AM EST

    Marshall v Kentucky

    And they wonder why they are not getting great trade offers? On pretty much every draft board out there worth mentioning Nerlens Noel is taken with the No. 1 pick by the Cleveland Cavaliers. But they are not thrilled with him — we’ve heard the Alex Len rumors and about how the Cavaliers want to…

  10. Spurs backup guard Patty Mills out for Finals after foot surgery… who will waive the towels now?

    Spurs' Mills celebrates during play against the Heat during Game 3 of their NBA Finals basketball playoff in San Antonio

    This really doesn’t impact the Spurs on the court in the Finals, but it will sadden the basketball fans of Australia. Spurs reserve guard Patty Mills — best known in this series for his enthusiastic towel waving —  is out for the remainder of the postseason after having surgery on his foot, the team announced…

  11. Anthony Bennett to visit No. 1 pick-holding Cavaliers

    Jun 14, 2013, 12:21 PM EST

    Mountain West Basketball Tournament - Championship - UNLV v New Mexico

    Kentucky’s Nerlens Noel is the consensus choice for the Cavaliers with No. 1 pick. Otto Porter, a polished small forward, is probably the best short-term fit. Or the Cavaliers could go in a completely other direction, as they’ve made annual habit. Dion Waiters (No. 4 in 2012) and Tristan Thompson (No. 4 in 2011) were…

  12. Otto Porter’s agent seems quite certain Porter won’t slip past No. 3 in draft

    Jun 12, 2013, 11:38 PM EST

    Otto Porter Jr., John Thompson III

    Otto Porter is one of the most polished prospects in the NBA Draft. He showed an ability to run Georgetown’s offense, and his smooth jumper gave him success off the ball, too. He has ideal size for his position in the NBA, which made him a good defender in college. Porter is also younger than…

    Adidas Eurocamp - Day 2

    TREVISO, Italy — The camp’s second day was lighter on the competition for the older, draft eligible international prospects, and was focused instead on drills, coaching, and showcasing the younger teams in attendance. There was only one game featuring the event’s main attractions, and it was used by two Brazilian players to dominate the action.…

  16. Chauncey Billups wins inaugural NBA Teammate of the Year award

    Jun 9, 2013, 7:14 PM EST

    Chauncey Billups

    Whether he was in uniform or in a suit on the sidelines as he recovered from a torn Achilles, a lot of Clippers players would turn to Chauncey Billups for advice. How to deal with certain defenses, how to cover particular players, whatever it was he was like another assistant coach for the team. So…

    USA Basketball will hold a minicamp in July for promising players who haven’t participated in or have had limited exposure to the national program. USA Basketball hasn’t announced a pull list of invitees, but the names are beginning to trickle out. Pacers swingman Paul George will participate in the Team USA minicamp this summer. —…

  20. 22 teams confirmed for NBA Summer League in Las Vegas

    May 29, 2013, 9:40 PM EST

    Damian Lillard, Brian Roberts

    Summer League is a chance to check out both young players and those on the fringe who are trying to make a name for themselves and earn a job on an NBA roster. Besides, it’s not like you’re doing anything else related to professional basketball from July 12th through the 22nd. Even though we still…

  21. Report: Cavaliers eying scoring forward if they trade No. 1 pick

    May 29, 2013, 2:21 PM EST

    Toronto Raptors v Boston Celtics

    DeMarcus Cousins’ talent would tantalize any team, but according to Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated, the Cavaliers have a different profile in mind if they trade the No. 1 pick: The Cavs have acknowledged that they will listen to offers for the top overall pick, and rival executives say they are looking for an established…

  22. LeBron, Durant, Kobe headline All NBA First Team

    May 23, 2013, 1:27 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    Even before the season tipped off you had a pretty good sense that LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Chris Paul would be All-NBA First Team — they are dominant players at or entering their peak. But Kobe Bryant and Tim Duncan continue to defy father time. The two veterans round out the All NBA Team…

  23. John Calipari: Cavaliers’ GM scouted Kentucky more than any other GM

    May 23, 2013, 11:22 AM EST

    Marshall v Kentucky

    There’s a big risk that comes with draft Nerlens Noel. And not just his torn ACL. Noel played only 24 games last season, and although that’s more than twice as many as Kyrie Irving did his lone season at Duke, it’s still a pretty small sample. I think Noel proved enough to justify becoming the…

  24. Cavaliers bask in another lottery victory

    NBA Draft Lottery Basketball

    Two years ago, Nick Gilbert made famous his catch phrase – “What’s not to like?” – when his father’s Cavaliers won the NBA Draft lottery with Nick as the team’s on-stage representative. Since, Nick has been asked many times, “What’s not to like?” by interviewers who expect a response without considering that the phrase is…

  25. For second time in three years Cavaliers win NBA draft lottery

    May 21, 2013, 9:18 PM EST

    Dan Gilbert, Nick Gilbert

    You need some luck if you’re going to build a winner through the lottery (just ask the Thunder). Cleveland has gotten it’s share luck lately. Or, it’s just Karma balancing itself out, if you prefer. For the second time in three years the Cleveland Cavaliers have got the balls to bounce their way and have…
