He’s going to be buried on the Wizards’ depth chart and could be trade bait this season.

Another good off-season pickup for the Wizards.

Beyond Lowry, those are many marginal players, and none of them are Carmelo Anthony

What matters at the combine are the doctor’s reports after a physical and the team interviews. The drills are mostly for show.

Now the Spurs move on to face another, better jump-shooting team in Portland, but if they play like they did in Game 7 it will not matter.

Three big games Wednesday night — two game fives where the series are tied, plus the Rockets are trying to keep their season alive.

The Spurs turned the ball over on 26.2 percent of their possessions. It’s very unSpurs like.

We told you last week to expect this and now it is a reality: Royce White is now a member of the Sacramento Kings. The Kings announced Wednesday the signing of White to a 10-day contract. He was immediately assigned to the Kings D-League affiliate Reno Bighorns. White was the No. 22 pick of the…

Samuel Dalembert overslept, keeping him from a Dallas Mavericks practice. Samuel Dalembert overslept, keeping him from a Dallas Mavericks practice. This is not a recording. The center slept too long and was late to a Mavericks workout, which caused Dallas to suspend him for its 92-80 loss to the New York Knicks on Sunday, according…

Saturday night against the Milwaukee Bucks, Samuel Dalembert picked up a DNP-Coaches Decision. The guy the Mavericks signed this off-season to be a rim protecting big man has already been bumped from the starting lineup back on Dec. 4 (after starting the team’s first 17 games) but now he is fading out of the rotation…

Royce White got a fresh chance with the Philadelphia 76ers this season. Or at least that’s what he hoped; it also looked a lot like a salary move by Philadelphia at the time. Still he played for the Sixers in the preseason, even took a plane flight road trip, then he was one of the…

Believe it or not, we’re nearly at the quarter mark of the NBA season already. That means it’s time to start believing a little more in what we’ve seen so far, and maybe even time to dish out a few awards. Remember, these aren’t predictions for what will happen at the end of the season.…

Samuel Dalembert has a knack for making good plays, even though he can be unreliable on and off the court. That’s why the Mavericks could sign him to a two-year deal that pays fewer than $4 million per season and isn’t even fully guaranteed for the second year, a huge bargain for a starting center.…

Last season: For the first time in his career, Dirk Nowitzki missed a chunk of the season due to major knee surgery. Dallas started 12-15 without their star German then promptly dropped 8-of-9 after his return, putting them in a deep hole. The result was the players grew “.500 beards” they let grow like they…

Last season: The Spurs finished with the second best record in the Western Conference, and blew through the playoffs with a 12-2 record (including sweeps against the Lakers in the first round and the Grizzlies in the Conference Finals) before facing the Heat in the NBA Finals. The series was one for the ages, with…

Ouch. Brandan Wright was going to get some minutes in Dallas — Samuel Dalembert is penciled in as the starting center but he is out of shape and not a guy you give 30 minutes a night to anyway. After that you have Bernard James or you go small (DeJuan Blair). But Wright is out…

Call me skeptical, I want to see him out on the court, but we may see Royce White playing a little for Philadelphia this season. White could play his first game as a Sixer Friday, in a preseason game against the Celtics. At least that’s the plan, reports the Philadelphia Daily News. Originally the plan…

The Mavericks were one of the teams that made a pitch to Dwight Howard in free agency, and believed that with Dirk Nowitzki in the fold and with a roster’s worth of cap space available in advance of the 2014-15 season, that they’d be able to build a championship contender around Howard in just two…

Rick Carlisle wants the Dallas Mavericks to be tougher this season. The man for the job is… DeJuan Blair? Coach Rick Carlisle says so, speaking at Blair’s introductory press conference, as reported by ESPNDallas.com. “DeJuan was a really important acquisition for us because Elton Brand didn’t return,” Mavs coach Rick Carlisle said. “We need that…

Not everybody loves Gregg Popovich. Meet DeJuan Blair. You might remember him as the big man without ACLs who played pretty well for the Spurs — he started all but four games two seasons ago and averaged 9.5 points a game. However, he fell out of the rotation last season as Popovich went with the…

DeJuan Blair finished his fourth season with the Spurs as a restricted free agent, but after falling out of the rotation in San Antonio and with the Spurs not looking to match any offers he may have received, Blair might has well have been unrestricted this summer. The offers weren’t exactly pouring in, despite Blair’s…
