David West

  1. Report: Paul Millsap is on the trading block. Any bidders?

    Nov 28, 2011, 8:02 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Golden State Warriors

    We welcome with open arms our first real trade rumor of the post-lockout era. We’ve missed you guys. Jazz forward Paul Millsap is available, according to a story in the Indy Star and backed up by John Hollinger of ESPN. This is not a huge shock, the Jazz were reportedly shopping Millsap around during the…

  2. 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…

  3. David West’s agent says David West is healthy

    Oct 20, 2011, 4:36 PM EDT

    david-west-torn-acl

    From Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski: Free agent David West, one of top players on market, has doctor’s full clearance to return after ACL surgery, agent Lance Young tells Y! West averaged 18.9 points and 7.6 rebounds last season, and his combination of a good inside game and a reliable pick-and-pop jump shot has made him…

  4. What the Pacers should do when the lockout ends

    Oct 14, 2011, 4:09 PM EDT

    Pacers' head coach Vogel reacts during the first half of Game 1 of their NBA Eastern Conference first round playoff basketball game against the Bulls in Chicago

    This is the latest installment of PBT’s series of “What your team should do when the lockout ends.” Up next is the Indiana Pacers. You can also check out our thoughts on other NBA teams here as we work our way through all 30 squads.   Last season: What a start! Oh, things fell apart. Oh, but…

  5. David West expects games to be lost. Sadly, we all do.

    Aug 15, 2011, 12:23 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v New Orleans Hornets

    Of all the things that are frustrating about the NBA lockout — and one could write 95 theses on what is frustrating and tack it to a locker room door — this may be the thing that gets under my skin most: We all knew it was coming. For years. Yet there has been no…

  6. Granger wants Indiana to go after a power forward

    Aug 10, 2011, 2:14 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks

    Indiana was back in the playoffs last season after a four-year absence. They have a young core with Danny Granger, Paul George, Roy Hibbert and Darren Collison. And they have a lot of money to spend. We may not know what the league’s post-lockout salary structure will look like, but we do know the Pacers…

  7. David West says he’ll be ready to go in October

    Jul 26, 2011, 9:27 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v New Orleans Hornets

    David West rolled the dice. He was maybe the best free agent power forward on the market, a fantastic pick-and-pop partner for an elite point guard. The kind of guy that a lot of teams with cap room — the Pacers, the Nets — could use. A guy the Hornets want back… more like need…

  8. Top five unrestricted free agents… where will they go?

    Jul 20, 2011, 3:15 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    Free agency is not going to be as much fun this time around. Whenever the owners and players get around to settling the lockout the free agency period will be condensed and hectic. Not that I really miss the drama of Lebron dragging out his decision, but it’s fun to watch things break over a…

  9. Hornets lose another big man, Gray to become free agent

    Jun 27, 2011, 3:39 PM EDT

    Gray_Aaron

    First it was the expected news that David West is going opt out of his deal with the Hornets to test the market. Now comes news that backup center Aaron Gray will follow suit, via Yahoo’s Marc Spears on twitter. Gray was set to make $1.1 million in the last year of his deal but…

  10. David West opts out of contract, hits free agent market

    Jun 27, 2011, 10:36 AM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v New Orleans Hornets

    If this were any year in the last five, what David West is doing would be a no brainer. But this year, heading into a lockout followed by a new Collective Bargaining Agreement, he is taking a risk. David West has told the New Orleans Hornets he is opting out of the final year of…

  11. David West has yet to decide if he will opt out

    May 26, 2011, 2:19 PM EDT

    david-west-torn-acl

    Behind door No. 1, David West has a $7.5 million option to return to the New Orleans Hornets. Behind door No. 2, free agency. Which is a big risk —West was the Hornets leading scorer and due for a big pay increase, but then he blew out his ACL in March. Combine that with the…

  12. Hornets will talk extension with Chris Paul… when they can

    May 5, 2011, 5:03 PM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Two

    Job No. 1 for the New Orleans Hornets: Keep Chris Paul. Okay, maybe “find an owner to keep the team in town” is above that on the to-do list. But that is outside GM Dell Demps job description, he’s just trying to build a winner people will want to come see Which brings us back…

  13. Video: Darrell Arthur can jump higher than you

    Apr 11, 2011, 11:36 AM EDT

    ARTHUR_DARRELL

    It’s the best dunk you didn’t see yesterday, because we know you and you watched the Masters and not Memphis smacking down New Orleans. O.J. Mayo starts the play with the steal and it ends with an iffy ally-oop pass to Arthur who skies and is able to guide it in. This play pretty much…

  14. Hornets’ head coach Monty Williams discusses moving forward without David West

    Mar 25, 2011, 9:59 PM EDT

    monty-williams-david-west-injury

    The loss of David West for the season due to a torn ACL injury was a devastating blow to a Hornets team that currently sits seventh in the Western Conference playoff picture. Head coach Monty Williams talked about it with the assembled media for the first time since the diagnosis became official Friday afternoon, as…

  15. Hornets sign Patrick Ewing Jr. to a 10-day contract

    Mar 25, 2011, 7:37 PM EDT

    Patrick Ewing Jr.

    David West’s season is over, and thus, the Hornets’ season is over. New Orleans will still likely hold onto their playoff spot (though with West sidelined, a tough schedule ahead, and Houston on a roll, maybe we shouldn’t even take that much for granted), but even the slim chance the Hornets had to make it…

  16. Hornets’ David West out for the season with torn ACL

    Mar 25, 2011, 5:22 PM EDT

    david-west-torn-acl

    The Hornets’ David West went down in a heap Thursday night, with what the team officially described as “left knee trauma” at the time. Further tests on Friday revealed the injury to be a torn ACL (according to multiple reports) which will rule West out for the remainder of this season. While the team might…

  17. With West out Hornets likely still make playoffs, just exit early

    Mar 25, 2011, 1:10 PM EDT

    David West

    We’re still waiting for the official diagnosis of David West, but if you’ve seen the video of his injury — if you heard his screams of pain on the game broadcast — you would realize it is not going to be good. He has a long rehab ahead of him, and some serious decisions to…

  18. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Dallas has 50 wins in a season. Again.

    Mar 25, 2011, 8:17 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki, Jason Terry

    What you missed while developing a remote control floating cloud to hoover over soccer stadiums…. Mavericks 104, Timberwolves 96: No Kevin Love tonight for Minnesota so on paper this this looked like it a blowout… but nobody counted on good Anthony Randolph showing up. Much like the Spanish Inquisition, nobody expects the good Anthony Randolph.…

  19. Hornets’ David West injures knee, leaves game in wheelchair

    Mar 25, 2011, 12:34 AM EDT

    David_west

    UPDATE March 25, 12:34 am: The Hornets are officially calling this “left knee trauma” (which is a pretty scary term) but said in a release that the X-rays are negative. He will have an MRI before the team discusses the severity of the injury. Al Jefferson of the Jazz said he hopes he is wrong but…

  20. Coach trying to convince David West to stick with Hornets

    Mar 22, 2011, 3:54 PM EDT

    David_west

    Monty Williams has proven a pretty good coach so far this season. He looks like a lot better coach when Chris Paul and David West are playing. He admits as much. Those also happen to be two guys who can opt out of deals the next two summers. So Williams has set to work. That…

  21. Prokhorov backs off Nets to playoff pledge, looks long term — like to David West

    Mar 7, 2011, 12:08 PM EDT

    Mikhail Prokhorov Introductory Press Conference

    The Nets are not going to make the playoffs this year. I know it’s not a shock, we all kind of knew that was happening before the season started. They won 12 games last season, we all recognized how much work there was to do. They’ll probably finish around 25 wins this season, and that’s…

    Image (1) marc-gasol-thumb-250x210-17949.jpg for post 3610

    Today, we’re not thinking about lockouts and franchise tags. Today, just for today, we’re going to pretend that the owners and players are not so stupid as have a protracted lockout during a recession killing the momentum the league is building this season. A man can dream, can’t he? Along those lines, right about now…

  23. But wait, there’s more — three game winners in one video

    Jan 25, 2011, 4:58 PM EDT

    David West

    There was David West and the elbow fade away for the Hornets. Brook Lopez moved into the middle of the lane and hit the jump hook for the Nets despite a sad and funny attempted foul by the Cavaliers. There was Rudy Gay from the baseline winning it for the Grizzlies. Three dramatic game winning…

  24. David West, Hornets reportedly nowhere near extension

    Jan 25, 2011, 2:32 PM EDT

    David_west

    Great news Hornets fans: Not only do you have to worry about losing your franchise player in Chris Paul in a couple of years — not to mention your entire franchise to some new, Clay Bennettesque  out-of-town owner — you can worry about losing David West as well. Sorry guys. The first round of Zantac…

  25. Video: David West’s game winner for Hornets

    Jan 25, 2011, 8:50 AM EDT

    David West

    Usually when the New Orleans Hornets need a big shot, he ball is in Chris Paul‘s hands. But he had rolled his ankle (don’t worry, he says he’s fine) and so the responsibility fell to David West. He can handle it. Very well. Here is the video of West winning the game for the Hornets…
