Dallas Mavericks

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

    Dec 3, 2011, 1:30 PM EDT

    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,…

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

    Dec 3, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    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.…

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

    Dec 2, 2011, 8:29 PM EDT

    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…

  4. Mavericks will not get championship rings on Christmas

    Dec 2, 2011, 1:50 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Dec 2, 2011, 11:01 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Dec 2, 2011, 10:15 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Dec 2, 2011, 9:24 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Dec 1, 2011, 6:45 PM EDT

    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…

  9. Warriors looking to go big in free agent market

    Dec 1, 2011, 3:59 PM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan, Corey Maggette

    While the return of the NBA has meant the return of fantasy trade scenarios, the Warriors are one team that appears locked in on free agency — at least for now. The Warriors are looking to sign a big man during the abbreviated free agency period, sources tell Warriors Insider Matt Steinmetz of CSNBayArea.com. The…

  10. Thursday morning one liners: NBA rumor mill keeps churning

    Dec 1, 2011, 11:01 AM EDT

    Durant football

    LeBron James and Kevin Durant played flag football Wednesday night. The score: Nobody tore an ACL. That’s the only score that matters. If you want to get an early jump on MVP voting (which, admittedly, may be a tad premature what with training camps not even open yet) we’ve got you covered here at NBC.…

  11. Tyson Chandler expects to join new team

    Nov 30, 2011, 9:59 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks Victory Parade

    Tyson Chandler was the anchor of the Mavericks championship defense. In an era with no hands allowed on the perimeter, you can’t win without a big who can protect the rim. He was a key change that took them from contender to pretender. In a surprise development on the first day that NBA teams and…

  12. Nets reportedly interested in Nene, Tyson Chandler

    Nov 30, 2011, 6:28 PM EDT

    Nene

    From ESPN.com’s Chris Broussard: NJ will pursue free agents Nene & Tyson Chandler in hopes of landing 1. Could use either as trade bait to land Howard or players around him. Seeing as to how center Brook Lopez is one of New Jersey’s core players, this report is a bit baffling. Nene is the best…

  13. David West drawing interest from Pacers, Warriors, more

    Nov 30, 2011, 5:20 PM EDT

    David_west

    David West (kind of like Caron Butler) is an interesting free agent case — he’s 31 and coming off major knee surgery. Combined those are a pretty massive red flag. But he has been a good, borderline All-Star (he made it in 2008 and 2009) forward who is one of the best pick-and-pop bigs in…

  14. Free agent Caron Butler drawing interest from power teams

    Nov 30, 2011, 3:08 PM EDT

    Caron Butler

    Caron Butler is 32 years old and coming off knee surgery that forced him to miss the second half of last season and the playoffs for the Dallas Mavericks. Injured and getting old (by NBA standards) is not usually a combo that has teams clamoring for a guy. But in a sign of the market…

  15. Goodbye Denver, Miami among suitors lined up for Nene

    Nov 29, 2011, 2:14 PM EDT

    Nene nuggets

    Nene is the biggest and best free agent on the market. Unless your team doesn’t need a legit 7-foot big man who plays smart, can defend the paint, rebound well, plus has a deft offensive touch around the rim and from the midrange. Denver can use one of those but after nine years in the…

  16. Tuesday morning one liners: Rumor mill starting to spin

    Nov 29, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    Kris Humphries Nets

    If you read one thing on the new NBA CBA, this breakdown by Larry Coon of ESPN should be it. This will make you smarter. Here is a complete list of all 129 free agents that hit the market Dec. 9. It makes almost no sense for the Lakers to make a run at Kris…

  17. Free agents already eyeing Miami as destination

    Nov 29, 2011, 9:17 AM EDT

    Heat's James celebrates a basket with teammate Wade during Game 1 of the NBA Finals basketball series in Miami

    Warm weather. No state income tax. The chance to play with LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. The chance to win a ring. All of the tantalizing distractions a single man could ask for. There are a lot of reasons NBA players like Miami. And right now, the upcoming crop of free agents seems to like…

  18. Mike Miller still likely gone in Miami, amnesty casualty

    Nov 28, 2011, 3:05 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    In an ideal world, the Miami Heat would like to keep Mike Miller around, because if he does bounce back from last season’s injuries and this summer’s surgeries, he is a perfect fit. He can stretch the floor with his shot, is a solid team defender and can rebound. But alas, the math of the…

  19. Will Rudy Fernandez tell Dallas he wants to stay in Spain?

    Nov 28, 2011, 12:06 PM EDT

    Rudy Fernandez

    UPDATE 12:06 pm: A source (ho sounds a whole lot like an agent) has denied that Rudy Fernandez is going to try and get out of his deal with the Mavs, according to Hoopshype. “Rudy Fernandez’s plan is to join the Mavericks next week and play with them this year,” the source said. “Asking for…

  20. Monday morning one liners: Coming, going from Europe

    Nov 28, 2011, 11:47 AM EDT

    CBA 11/12 First Round: Guangdong Hongyuan v Zhejiang Chouzhou

    With the end of the NBA lockout, NBA players are exiting Europe and heading back to the good ol’ US of A for an NBA season. What players are on the move are the highlights of our morning one liners. If you read one thing today, make it this very thoughtful look at where the…

  21. Lakers, Mavericks, other big spenders safe for two years

    Nov 28, 2011, 8:06 AM EDT

    Image (1) jbuss-thumb-250x140-15577.jpg for post 3061

    Part of the reason we lost 480 NBA games this season is because a bunch of owners were pissed at the Lakers, Mavericks, Heat, Celtics and other owners willing to spend over the luxury tax. Small market owners wanted to tie the hands of the big spenders in the name of the mythical “competitive balance.”…

  22. Dalembert considering Heat, Knicks, Rockets

    Nov 28, 2011, 12:52 AM EDT

    Samuel Dalembert

    Centers are at a premium in this league, that should be evident by now. Nene, Tyson Chandler, Marc Gasol, all will lead this free agency class. Dwight Howard headlines the next. Chandler’s defensive impact was a primary factor in the Mavericks winning the title. So Samuel Dalembert will be getting his fair share of calls…

  23. Top 10 free agents when the lockout ends

    Nov 26, 2011, 5:30 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    On December 9th, assuming the deal is approved by both sides, players will re-enter training facilities for the first time since last spring to being working towards the NBA season. At the same time, NBA free agency for the 2011-2012 season will open, and all hell will break loose as teams scramble to sign their…

  24. NBA Christmas Day openers likely to see finals rematch

    Nov 26, 2011, 8:34 AM EDT

    Nowitzki LeBron James

    It’s not official yet (and may not be for a couple weeks) but we have a pretty good idea what the new NBA opening day will look like. Which is exactly what the old Christmas Day schedule looked like. That slate of games was to and most likely will start where the NBA labor talks…

    Like the leftovers you are trying to fashion into meal, here are few things scattered around today we are fashioning into a post. • Up at UC Berkley (what you call Cal) there is a charity game scheduled now for Dec. 10 billed as “Steve Nash vs. Jason Kidd” (via the twitter of Yahoo’s Marc…
