Darren Collison

  1. A quick look at your top free agents for 2013 (as of now)

    Aug 30, 2012, 10:50 AM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Clippers - Game Four

    After a summer of rebuilding and trying to put a team together, there are a few teams out there that are clearly looking at next summer as the chance to remake their lineup. Yes, we’re looking at you, Dallas. But you are not alone. So, who are next summer’s big potential free agents? Here is…

  2. The Inbounds: Indiana and defense of second

    Aug 6, 2012, 12:38 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Indiana Pacers - Game Three

    Welcome to the Inbounds, touching on one big idea, story, or discussion point of the day.  It’s fine to think the Celtics were the second best team in the East in last year’s playoffs (factoring the Bulls post-Rose injury). I mean, they finished second, right? They pushed the eventual NBA champions to seven games, and…

  3. Delonte West reaches one-year deal to return to Mavericks

    Jul 25, 2012, 2:49 AM EST

    delonte

    The chances of us seeing another “Wet Willy” in the NBA next season just went up. The Dallas Mavericks have reached a one-year deal to bring back Delonte West, reports Marc Stein at ESPN. We don’t know the size of the deal yet (likely the veteran minimum), but being just one year it does not…

  4. The Inbounds: Dallas’ Improv High-Wire Act

    Jul 24, 2012, 6:00 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki (41) reacts after hitting a three point shot during the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Utah Jazz  in Salt Lake City, Utah

    Welcome to The Inbounds, touching on a big idea of the day. It could be news, it could be history, it could be a tangent, it could be love. OK, it’s probably not love. Enjoy. Dallas had the worst offseason. Dallas had the best offseason. Two sides, one coin. Usually when you whiff on a…

  5. Winderman: New CBA means role players will see short-term contracts

    Jul 24, 2012, 1:05 PM EST

    Memphis Grizzlies v Phoenix Suns

    As the NBA adjusts to its new collective-bargaining agreement, we’re beginning to see some short-term returns. Literally. With a more punitive luxury tax and free agents thinking twice about moving on to new teams (and therefore significantly smaller contracts than by remaining with their incumbent teams), we’re apparently in the era of incremental rebuilds. Example…

  6. The Inbounds: Steve Nash, the Lakers, and the lawlessness of the point guard wilderness

    Jul 17, 2012, 9:00 AM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Phoenix Suns

    Welcome to The Inbounds, touching on a big idea of the day. It could be news, it could be history, it could be a tangent, it could be love. OK, it’s probably not love. Enjoy. “How does Steve Nash help them stop Russell Westbrook or Tony Parker?’ That’s the standard reaction from skeptics to the…

  7. O.J. Mayo announces he will sign with Dallas Mavericks

    Jul 17, 2012, 7:54 AM EST

    O. J. Mayo

    O.J. Mayo didn’t like being the third or fourth option in Memphis, he wanted starters minutes and a bigger role. He may have found all that in Dallas. Mayo tweeted late Monday nightw that he would sign in Dallas for the upcoming season. Terms of any deal are not yet known. While Dallas has worked…

  8. Elton Brand headed to Dallas after Mavs win bidding process

    Jul 13, 2012, 5:55 PM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers' Brand battles for rebound with New Jersey Nets' Petro and Morrow in their NBA basketball game in Newark

    Dallas fell short in its quest for another elite superstar to go with Dwight Howard this summer, but in the interim they have put together a solid roster. One where most of the players come off the books after this season. Elton Brand is the latest of those — Dallas won the biding process for…

  9. Bobcats cut Augustin loose, Pacers sign him to deal

    Jul 12, 2012, 6:30 PM EST

    D.J. Augustin, Darko Milicic

    So Indiana just traded Darren Collison then paid $1 million a year more to have D.J. Augustin backup George Hill? Interesting decision. But that’s what the Pacers have done (and got backup center Ian Mahinmi in the process). Here’s how it went down. On Wednesday the Pacers traded Collison to Dallas for Mahinmi. On Thursday,…

  10. Welcome to NBA signing day tracker: Griffin, Nash, more ink deals

    Jul 11, 2012, 9:05 PM EST

    Blake Griffin arrives for a news conference announcing the players selected for the 2012 U.S. Olympic men's basketball team in Las Vegas

    It’s official, Steve Nash is a Los Angeles Laker. And Blake Griffin is a very rich Clipper. All the deals that have been reported in the past 10 days — such as Deron Williams re-signing with the Nets — go from “agreement reached” to “pen on paper” today. The league has a 10-day moratorium on…

  11. Report: Pacers trade Darren Collison to Mavs for Ian Mahinmi

    Jul 11, 2012, 8:56 PM EST

    Darren_Collison

    Indiana is a team on the rise in the East, but they have come to the conclusion point guard Darren Collison is not part of that future. So they have traded him to the Mavericks, a story broken by Jonathan Givony of DraftExpress (via twitter): Indiana will acquire Ian Mahinmi (4-years, 16 million) in a…

  12. Report: Pacers to match $58 million max offer to Hibbert

    Jul 9, 2012, 3:07 PM EST

    Roy Hibbert

    Roy Hibbert will remain an Indiana Pacer. It was the only move the Pacers could really make. The Portland Trail Blazers agreed to offer Roy Hibbert a max extension — four years, $58 million — on July 11. Indiana was torn as to whether or not to match the offer, but they have decided to…

  13. You can go home again: Donnie Walsh hired by Pacers

    Jun 26, 2012, 2:21 AM EST

    Donnie Walsh

    Donnie Walsh was the long-time CEO of the Indiana Pacers who took a few years off to bail the New York Knicks out of their Isiah Thomas hole. They rewarded him for that by shoving him aside (over differences about the Carmelo Anthony deal), stripping him of his power and making him a consultant. Now,…

  14. Which teams could crash the Thunder/Heat finals next year?

    Jun 22, 2012, 1:47 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat - Game Five

    These finals didn’t feel like a one-time thing. One year from now the Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder could well be back on the NBA’s biggest stage. This is a budding rivalry. Between LeBron James and Kevin Durant. Between the flashy East Coast city and the solid Midwestern city. Miami’s stars are in their…

  15. Larry Bird says he wants to return to Pacers next season

    May 30, 2012, 4:41 PM EST

    Former NBA player Bird attends premiere of Magic Bird in New York

    It was the conventional wisdom that after this season Larry Bird would walk away from his job in Indiana. He had to be coaxed back last year and with the Pacers on solid footing for the future he could step away leaving the team in a good spot as an up-and-comer in the East. But…

  16. Pacers can’t be soft in Game 6 or Heat will eliminate them

    May 24, 2012, 4:34 PM EST

    LeBron James, Dwyane Wade

    Miami does not have Udonis Haslem Thursday night, suspended for his hard foul on Tyler Hansbrough last game. Danny Granger will be out on the court for Indiana but playing with an ankle he described as swollen like a small softball. These are serious setbacks for both teams and how they deal with it —…

  17. Celtics Avery Bradley likely out for rest of playoffs

    May 24, 2012, 10:04 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Philadelphia 76ers - Game Four

    Boston really missed Avery Bradley’s defense in Game 6. Jrue Holiday was getting into the paint at will and breaking down the Celtics defense, Evan Turner made some big plays, and Bradley’s replacement in the starting lineup Ray Allen picked up six fouls. Well the Celtics are going to have to figure out how to…

  18. NBA Playoffs: James, Wade carry Heat, even up series with Pacers

    May 20, 2012, 7:00 PM EST

    Heat Pacers Game 4

    The Heat were able to get a 101-93 win over the Pacers to even up the series at 2 on Sunday, but it certainly didn’t come easy for them. The Miami Heat absolutely needed a win in Indiana on Sunday afternoon, and for the first part of the game, it didn’t look like the Pacers…

  19. Ironically, Wade thinks Pacers celebration was excessive

    May 16, 2012, 11:11 AM EST

    Pacers Celebration, Dwyane Wade

    Really? The celebration is his problem? Indiana was one fired up team after they knocked off the Heat in Game 2 Tuesday night, tying that series at 1-1. As they should have been. It was a big road playoff win that should give them a measure of respect among people who just didn’t realize how…

  20. NBA Playoffs: Heat flaws show up big, Pacers exploit them to even series

    May 15, 2012, 10:04 PM EST

    Heat Pacers Game 2

    Miami fans, the time to panic may be now. Indiana certainly didn’t dominate Miami in their ugly 78-75 Game 2 win, but they did make the Heat look like a team that may be fatally flawed without the third member of their “Big 3″ in the lineup. The Heat had plenty of chances to win…

  21. Indiana’s talent wins out in fourth, series; Pacers win and advance

    May 8, 2012, 11:17 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Indiana Pacers - Game Five

    It ended pretty much like everyone expected it to end, five games with the Pacers in control at the end. But at times it didn’t feel like it was supposed to — the Pacers looked like a team still learning how to win in the playoffs. Orlando played hard and gritty ball, they never stopped…

  22. Maybe it won’t be so easy, Magic beat Pacers 81-77 in Game 1

    Apr 28, 2012, 11:25 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Indiana Pacers - Game One

    This was the dull series. This was going to be a sweep (as I predicted). The Orlando Magic without Dwight Howard were not going to be able to hang with an up-and-coming Indiana Pacers team. Well, unless Indiana helps them out with a terrible offensive performance. One where they looked young and in awe of…

  23. NBA Playoff preview: Indiana vs. Orlando

    Apr 26, 2012, 9:45 PM EST

    George Hill, Paul George, Roy Hibbert, Danny Granger, David West

    SEASON RECORDS
 Indiana 42-24 (3 seed) Orlando: 37-29 (6 seed) SEASON SERIES
 Orlando won the season series 3-1, but all four games were played with Dwight Howard in the lineup (he had 30 points in the last meeting) and before the wheels came off the bus in Orlando. Also, all the games were before the…

  24. Who gets the most “hockey assists” in the NBA?

    Apr 11, 2012, 4:59 PM EST

    Derrick Rose, Paul Pierce

    In the NBA, the guy who makes the pass to set up a shooter gets an assist. But often you will see a point guard drive and draw the defense, kick out to a guy at the arc, who will then see the defense rotate and make a pass to a second open shooter who…

  25. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Fear Memphis, for they are a force

    Apr 10, 2012, 9:24 AM EST

    Caron Butler, Marc Gasol

    What you missed while marveling at Japanese beer technology. Grizzlies 94, Clippers 85: Why does everyone fear the Grizzlies right now? Because they have a huge front line with skill. Because they have very good wing players. Because they have depth. Because they have won 8 of 10 and that includes victories over the Lakers,…
