  1. Caron Butler’s final four: Bulls, Spurs, Nets, Clippers

    Dec 7, 2011, 3:45 PM EST

    Caron Butler

    For a guy on the wrong side of 30 coming off major knee surgery that caused him to miss most of a season, Caron Butler has some pretty sweet options ahead of him for this season. Butler is down to a final four, tweets Chris Broussard of ESPN. Caron Butler’s choices: SA or CHI for…

  2. Report: Spurs to use amnesty clause on Richard Jefferson

    Dec 7, 2011, 2:06 PM EST

    Richard Jefferson

    Richard Jefferson apparently is out in San Antonio… which with the Spurs always makes you think something else is coming. Like maybe Caron Butler. Jefferson will be one of the first players waived under the new amnesty provision, tweets Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo. The Spurs have decided to use the amnesty clause on contract of…

  3. Wednesday morning one liners (now with extra rumors)

    Dec 7, 2011, 11:39 AM EST

    NBA And Players Representatives Meet To Discuss Possible Settlement

    Our morning look around the NBA with stories that are not their own post here at PBT. In case you didn’t get it in your inbox, here is David Stern’s letter to fans sent out yesterday. After the lockout and months of talk of change, does the new NBA feel any different than the old…

  4. Update: Chris Paul trade moving fast, Dwight Howard not

    Dec 7, 2011, 9:37 AM EST

    Miami Heat v New Orleans Hornets

    This much has become clear: It is very likely Chris Paul will be traded before the start of the NBA season and talks are fast tracked on that move. However, talks surrounding a Dwight Howard trade have slowed to a trickle as Howard has not told the Magic what he wants so that team remains…

  5. Circle your calendars: Games not to miss on NBA schedule

    Dec 6, 2011, 8:36 PM EST

    LeBron James Miami Heat Dallas Mavericks

    We’re not so presumptuous as to tell you what to watch… well, yes we are. There is an NBA schedule littered with good games worth watching that was just released today. What follows are the games that leapt off the page at us as ones not to miss. Dec. 25: Miami Heat at Dallas Mavericks:…

  6. Report: Celtics, Clippers, Warriors “strongly engaged” in Chris Paul talks

    Dec 6, 2011, 7:14 PM EST

    The Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    The New Orleans Hornets are going to move first — Chris Paul is the superstar most likely to be moved by the start of the season. (The Dwight Howard situation has more questions.) And the Boston Celtics, Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Clippers are at the front of the line, according to Adrian Wojnarowski…

  7. Jason Terry seeks extension with Mavericks

    Dec 6, 2011, 12:01 PM EST

    jason-terry-game-5

    Jason Terry may well be the real bellwether for the future of the Dallas Mavericks — do they keep the band together and try to win one more or start building for the future fast. Terry — the perennial sixth man of the year candidate — is set to make $10.7 million in this, the…

    New Jersey Nets forward Outlaw celebrates after scoring against the Toronto Raptors during triple overtime in their NBA game in London

    Our morning look around the NBA with stories that are not their own post here at PBT. Travis Outlaw had surgery on his hand this summer after a boxing injury (he hit a heavy bag and broke it). That was eight weeks ago and things are supposed to be healed, but the Nets doctors would…

  9. Report: Mavericks saving cap space to make run at Deron Williams

    Dec 6, 2011, 10:06 AM EST

    NBA London 2011 -  New Jersey Nets v Toronto Raptors

    Jason Kidd cannot play forever. I know, it already seemed like he has, but the fact is he will eventually need to walk away from the game. His contract is up after this season. And the Mavericks want Deron Williams to replace him, according to Ken Berger at CBSSports.com. That despite the fact Williams said…

  10. Valanciunas shoots down report he’ll play in Toronto this year

    Dec 5, 2011, 7:16 PM EST

    2011 NBA Draft

    Eventually Jonas Valanciunas, the No. 5 pick of the Raptors this past draft, will play in Toronto. And maybe play well (he looked good in international tournaments this summer.) Reports came up over the weekend that Valanciunas might play for the Raptors this season, but the man himself seemed to shoot that down in an…

  11. If not in Dallas, J. J. Barea wouldn’t mind being a Knick

    Dec 5, 2011, 1:57 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    There are some things you can just easily picture in your mind. Like J.J. Barea coming off the bench for the New York Knicks to run Mike D’Antoni’s offense. We’re not saying it’s going to happen — smart money says he stays a Maverick — but the Puerto Rican point guard told the New York…

  12. Caron Butler to meet with Clippers, lots of other teams in line

    Dec 5, 2011, 11:33 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v San Antonio Spurs, Game 3

    UPDATE 11:33 am: Caron Butler has four meetings set, the Clippers just being one of them. Here is the report from ESPN Dallas.   Butler will visit with team officials from the Chicago Bulls on Monday morning, followed by trips to sit down with officials from the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday night, the San…

  13. Winderman: NBA should bring order to free agency chaos

    Dec 5, 2011, 9:11 AM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Portland Trail Blazers

    If the NBA was smart, it would swoop collectively upon Dallas, claim the already-booked hotel space and tell Major League Baseball that, at this moment, they need winter meetings far more than any other sport. In 2010, when the NBA actually had time to conduct an orderly free-agent process, most of the league found itself…

  14. NBA Free Agency: The final chance for Vince Carter’s redemption

    Dec 4, 2011, 10:56 PM EST

    vince-carter-suns

    At the 2000 NBA All-Star Game, Vince Carter put in one of the most prolific, maybe the single best performances in NBA history. In the 2000 summer Olympics, Vince Carter dunked over Frederic Weis in arguably the most famous posterization of all time. And in the early to mid-2000’s, Carter put together one of the…

  15. Report: Nets, Warriors Rockets leaders in Tyson Chander sweepstakes

    Dec 4, 2011, 4:39 PM EST

    NBA Finals Heat Mavericks Basketball

    It starts here: Tyson Chandler wants to get paid. A lot. This is likely his last big contract and the man wants his money (reportedly he asked the Mavericks for a $20 million deal and wants max money from others). Dallas has balked at the cost and that is why Chandler has said he expects…

  16. J.J. Barea wants to go back to the Mavs

    Dec 4, 2011, 1:53 PM EST

    J.J. Barea

    Jose Juan Barea is going to get a lot of offers in free agency. That’s what happens when you’re the spark plug on the championship team. Barea does what he does very well. He manages the offense, hits some shots, and if you lose him for a minute, bam, he’s backdoor and you’ve given up…

  17. Spurs are aggressively shopping for a small forward, Jefferson on the way out?

    Dec 3, 2011, 4:00 PM EST

    Richard Jefferson

    The Spurs will likely look a bit different this year than they did last season. Tim Duncan‘s a year older. Manu Ginobili is a year older. DeJuan Blair‘s knees are a year older. They traded George Hill for Kawhi Leonard. Tiago Splitter will get more minutes. And from the looks of it, they’ll have another…

  18. One more time, report says Marc Gasol’s not leaving Memphis. Seriously. No kidding. For real.

    Dec 3, 2011, 1:30 PM EST

    Tim Duncan, Marc Gasol, Matt Bonner

    ESPN.com reports that there’s a high amount of skepticism around the league regarding Marc Gasol‘s availability in restricted free agency outside of Memphis. In short, the Grizzlies have every intention of matching any offer for the young stud center. Gasol is not the biggest name on the Grizzlies, with Zach Randolph, Rudy Gay, Mike Conley,…

  19. Report: Andrew Bynum “indifferent” to trade rumors

    Dec 3, 2011, 11:00 AM EST

    Andrew-Bynum-and-Dwight-Howard-806-306x248

    Andrew Bynum went straight from high school to the circus environment that can be the Los Angeles Lakers. It is in those three rings where he learned how to be a professional. That started with the little things, like eating healthier after practice than McDonalds, and worked its way up to dealing with the media.…

  20. Why are we talking trades for Paul, Howard? Money.

    Dec 2, 2011, 8:29 PM EST

    Dwight Howard

    Since about three minutes after David Stern and Billy Hunter sat bleary-eyed in a New York conference room to say they reached a deal, we have been talking trades. Specifically Chris Paul and Dwight Howard trades. The two superstar, franchise cornerstone guys who can opt out as free agents next summer and may push their…

  21. Mavericks will not get championship rings on Christmas

    Dec 2, 2011, 1:50 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    The Christmas present Dirk Nowitzki and Jason Kidd most want they will not get to open. They have to go shopping with Mark Cuban for it first. While the Mavericks championship banner will be raised to the rafters on the NBA’s opening day — while LeBron James and the Heat watch — the players will…

  22. Friday morning one liners: Where Afflalo gets some love

    Dec 2, 2011, 11:01 AM EST

    Arron Afflalo

    Our daily list of things you should know about that didn’t fit in our other posts. Who is the most coveted free agent not over 6’11? Arron Afflalo of the Nuggets, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein. He is restricted and Denver will match any reasonable offer. Brandon Rush made some tweets that would have gotten…

  23. Bulls, Clippers going hard after wing players Butler, Prince

    Dec 2, 2011, 10:15 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v San Antonio Spurs, Game 3

    The Chicago Bulls need a wing player to create shots and take some scoring burden off Derrick Rose. The Los Angeles Clippers need a wing player to fill out a roster with Eric Gordon at the guard spot and Blake Griffin in the paint. Both teams have started to reach out to guys like Caron…

  24. NBA to release schedule next Tuesday (Dec. 6)

    Dec 2, 2011, 9:24 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    The schedule for this season is not up yet on NBA.com. It will not be for a few more days. What is up though are pictures of NBA players and stories about current NBA players — things that were not on the site during the lockout. Images of current players were banned, which gave the…

  25. Jason Terry lobbies for Tyson Chandler’s return to the Mavs

    Dec 1, 2011, 6:45 PM EST

    Jason Terry Tyson Chandler

    Tyson Chandler shocked the known basketball world yesterday with an acknowledgement that he doesn’t expect to be back with the title-winning Dallas Mavericks next season. For a variety of reasons, the Mavs have reportedly underwhelmed Chandler with their offers thus far, and their starting center — and the key to their half-court defense — could…
