    Mar 9, 2012, 10:04 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard;  Jerryd Bayless ; Chris Duhon

    Orlando still has not decided that they are going to trade Dwight Howard — in fact, they seem to be leaning toward keeping him through the trade deadline and the end of the season — but if they do move him they are letting teams know what they want: A haul like Denver got last…

    Cleveland Cavaliers rookie Kyrie Irving reacts after a turnover during the second quarter of the Cavaliers NBA basketball game against the Miami Heat in Cleveland

    It’s March Madness time, so you can’t think of a play like this and not think Tyus Edney. With the game on the line in Denver, Cleveland inbounds the ball in the back court to soon-to-be Rookie of the Year Kyrie Irving and he drives the length of the court, gets past Arron Afflalo and…

    Kenneth Faried, Kurt Thomas

    David Thorpe — Executive Director of the Pro Training Center and ESPN analyst — has a saying: Energy is a skill. You need to have an elite level skill — rebounding, shooting, defending — to really impact an NBA game. But hustle, being a true energy guy, can do that, too. A guy who just…

    Ty Lawson

    In case you haven’t noticed, Ty Lawson has been a force since the All Star break — last week he  averaged 20.7 points, 11.7 assists and 7 rebounds a game. Oh, and he had 4 turnovers. Total. All week. Then there is this — his overtime game winner against the Kings. Which looks a lot…

    CAnderson_necktat

    At the San Francisco Chronicle, they have done a detailed team-by-team breakdown of trade options for the Warriors. For example, they say Golden State doesn’t want to do a Stephen Curry for Rajon Rondo swap with Boston (the Celtics wouldn’t do that one either). But when it got to Denver there was an interesting note:…

  9. Wilson Chandler, Nuggets still talking, not getting very far

    Mar 5, 2012, 3:58 PM EDT

    Wilson Chandler, Kobe Bryant

    Here are the two key facts as we know them: First, Wilson Chandler can’t play for any NBA team but the Denver Nuggets this season.

    Wilson+Chandler+Atlanta+Hawks+v+Denver+Nuggets+Ym_wkv-B6Cgl

    Quietly yesterday, the deadline passed for Wilson Chandler to play anywhere in the NBA except Denver. Chandler signed to play in China during the lockout, but he left before his team’s first round playoff series (against Stephon Marbury’s team) to try and negotiate a multi-year deal with an NBA deal. His Chinese team got swept…

    Monta Ellis

  19. Winderman: So who backs out of All-Star Game as “injured?”

    Feb 21, 2012, 1:04 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks

    It certainly will not reach the point of the Pro Bowl, where many are chosen but few elect to serve. But the impending All-Star Weekend comes at the time when the entire injury-ravaged, schedule-drained NBA could use a four-day break. For most of the league, that will be the case, with no games scheduled Friday,…
