  1. The Extra Pass: Ranking all 28 2016 U.S. Olympic Basketball Team candidatles

    Jan 23, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Olympics Day 16 - Basketball

    Some names leaked yesterday for inclusion on the 2014-16 USA Basketball men’s national-team roster – the pool of players who will be considered for upcoming international events. That includes the World Cup of Basketball this summer, possibly 2015 Olympic qualifiers  – and, of course, the 2016 Rio Olympics. Marc Stein of ESPN beat today’s official announcement with…

  2. Trade is official: Nets get Marquis Teague, Bulls land Tornike Shengalia

    Jan 21, 2014, 12:50 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Washington Wizards - NBA Global Games Rio 2013

    We told you this trade was coming last Friday night, now it is official: The Chicago Bulls have sent Marquis Teague to the Brooklyn Nets in exchange for Tornike Shengalia, the teams have announced. What the Bulls get is money — the little-used Shengalia can and will be let go after this season. Teague is…

  3. PBT Podcast: Is Lance Stephenson an All-Star?

    Jan 17, 2014, 5:49 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets vs Indiana Pacers

    Lance Stephenson‘s 28 points on the Knicks — and how he plays with a real flair — has a lot of people around the NBA asking if he is an All-Star? That’s the first topic in the latest edition of the ProBasketballTalk Podcast, featuring myself and Brett Pollakoff of PBT, plus Eytan Shander of NBC…

  4. Danilo Gallinari says he is not sure when, or if, he returns this season

    Jan 15, 2014, 3:14 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets forward Danilo Gallinari celebrates a score past the Toronto Raptors in the fourth quarter of their NBA basketball game in Denver

    Denver has been a roller coaster this season — lose eight in a row, win the next five, then get blown out by lowly Utah — and part of that is they miss the consistent scoring (and threat) that is Danilo Gallinari. Last season he was averaging 16.2 points a game and spacing the floor…

  5. Lance Stephenson’s alter ego “Sir Lancelot” wants you to vote for his man for All-Star Game (VIDEO)

    Jan 15, 2014, 12:59 PM EDT

    Lance Stephenson

    Sir Lancelot is emphatic. If nothing else. A lot of players have gone to the Web with attempts at viral videos to get you to vote for them for the All-Star Game (Ty Lawson in Denver was the latest) but most are about as funny as Carrot Top. Lance Stephenson hit it out of the…

  6. Derrick Rose no longer using crutches

    Jan 13, 2014, 5:23 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    When Derrick Rose last spoke with reporters, he was calling his doubters fools and refusing to declare himself out for the playoffs if the Chicago Bulls made them. He was resilient and relatively upbeat given the situation. But he also walked to and from that Dec. 5 news conference with crutches, as seen on the…

  7. PBT NBA Power Rankings: New York teams rising but Pacers on top still

    Jan 13, 2014, 2:32 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors vs Indiana Pacers

    Here are the weekly PBT power rankings, with some improving teams out of New York. For you fans in Dallas, Denver, Phoenix, Minnesota and Memphis — teams with dreams of the Western Conference playoffs — know that the pace right now is 47-48 wins just to get the 8 seed. Plan accordingly.   1. Pacers…

  8. Updated Report: Eric Bledsoe had piece of meniscus removed, could return in six weeks

    Jan 13, 2014, 10:10 AM EDT

    Eric Bledsoe

    UPDATED 10:15 am: This makes more sense. According to the Arizona Republic on Monday Bledsoe had a small piece of his meniscus removed, which is a much less serious surgery than had been suggested previously. Removal of the meniscus in a player this young would be unusual, but if is is an arthosopic surgery they…

  9. Joakim Noah hasn’t spoken publicly since Bulls traded Luol Deng

    Jan 11, 2014, 11:00 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Brooklyn Nets

    The Bulls are a unique team that’s had a core group of players together for enough time under head coach Tom Thibodeau to where they all had bought in on the common goal of playing for each other. That became more difficult in Chicago recently, after the Bulls made a trade that wasn’t meant to…

  10. Suns’ Bledsoe has meniscus repaired, could potentially return this season

    Jan 10, 2014, 1:14 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Los Angeles Clippers

    Officially, here is what the Phoenix Suns are saying about the knee surgery star Eric Bledsoe underwent: Phoenix Suns guard Eric Bledsoe today underwent successful arthroscopic surgery involving meniscus cartilage in his right knee, the team has announced. The surgery was performed in Phoenix by renowned Suns team doctor and knee surgeon Thomas Carter. Bledsoe…

  11. Pelicans’ Jrue Holiday out indefinitely with stress fracture in leg

    Jan 10, 2014, 11:41 AM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans v Sacramento Kings

    Ugh. The list of quality point guards currently out injured in the NBA includes Chris Paul, Derrick Rose, Russell Westbrook, Deron Williams, Eric Bledsoe (even if he played some two guard)… And now Jrue Holiday. Pelicans starting point guard Holiday has been diagnosed with a stress fracture in his right tibia and will be out…

  12. Stephen Curry moves past Chris Paul as starter in latest NBA All-Star balloting

    Jan 9, 2014, 3:24 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors - Game Six

    We can take Chris Paul’s brilliance as a point guard for granted because he’s the guy throwing the lobs, not the guy finishing the highlight play. Paul can score and take over a game, but his mastery of the point guard play is subtler than that — he takes over games by dictating flow and…

  13. Report: Warriors among teams interested in trading for Kirk Hinrich

    Jan 7, 2014, 5:42 PM EDT

    Kirk Hinrich

    It would be a mistake to use the word “tank” with any Tom Thibodeau coached team, because he would not allow his teams to roll over like that. However, with the trade of Luol Deng it is clear Bulls management has moved on from trying to win this year (they brought the band back to…

  14. Andrew Bynum, Stephen Jackson top list of players waived Tuesday

    Jan 7, 2014, 4:23 PM EDT

    Bynum Cavaliers

    Today was essentially cut-down day in the NBA. Any player on the roster come Jan. 10 has his contract guaranteed for the full season (even if he is let go), and as it takes 48 hours to clear waivers players have to be let go of Tuesday (5 ET) to make that deadline. There were…

  15. The Extra Pass: Winners, losers from Bynum/Deng trade (plus Monday’s recaps)

    Jan 7, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Chicago Bulls

    Winner: Luol Deng Deng is going to a team that desperately needs him. The Cleveland Cavaliers’ small forwards have a PER of 9.2 and yield a PER of 15.5 to opposing small forwards, according to 82Games.  That’s a horrific net PER of –6.3. Of the 150 positions in the NBA (five per team), only three have have…

  16. Cavaliers trade Andrew Bynum to Chicago Bulls for Luol Deng

    Jan 7, 2014, 1:30 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Washington Wizards - NBA Global Games Rio 2013

    Not only was Luol Deng on the trade market, the Chicago Bulls had a taker — the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Chicago Bulls have agreed to trade Luol Deng to the Cleveland Cavaliers for Andrew Bynum and a first round pick (the Kings’ pick owned by the Cavs that is top 12 protected this season, top…

  17. Report (out of New York): Bulls want to trade Deng, amnesty Boozer

    Jan 6, 2014, 4:35 PM EDT

    deng

    This may or may not be true, but know that when a New York columnist starts talking about a player on another team that the Knicks might want to get some day, we take the report with a healthy grain of salt. With that, this is from the pen (or computer, I guess) of Mitch…

  18. Report: Jeremy Lin switching to adidas with new shoe deal

    Jan 3, 2014, 12:50 PM EDT

    BASKET-US-TAIWAN-TPE-NBA-PACERS-ROCKETS-LIN

    Knock his game if you want — although you have to admit it has taken a healthy step forward this season — but you have to know Jeremy Lin is one of the most popular players in the NBA. He is fourth in NBA All-Star voting for the Western Conference’s backcourt, with more votes than…

  19. Report: Carmelo Anthony wants to stay a Knick, but if he leaves likes Bulls, Lakers, Clippers

    Jan 2, 2014, 4:26 PM EDT

    carmelo Antnony

    I still think come the start of next season Carmelo Anthony will slip on New York Knicks warm-ups before he takes the court pregame. When presented with all his options, he will stay in New York and trust management to build a team around him. Still, there is louder and louder talk he is looking…

  20. June draft will be biggest NBA story of 2014

    Jan 1, 2014, 9:30 AM EDT

    Andrew Wiggins

    The beauty of sports is that our predictions are often off the mark — like life itself it goes in directions we can’t predict. Still, we have some ideas of what we will look back on in a year as the biggest stories in the NBA for 2014. If the Miami Heat three-peat it will…

  21. NBA says there’s been no increase in rate of ‘significant’ injuries this season

    Dec 30, 2013, 10:43 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    Unless you’re a hardcore fan of one of a small group of five NBA teams, the injuries sustained this season to many of the league’s star players have made this a dismal campaign thus far. The Thunder are one of the five, but we’ve seen them have to deal with missed time from Russell Westbrook,…

  22. LeBron James strains groin, questionable for Saturday vs. Portland

    Dec 28, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Sacramento Kings

    If you were looking forward to a full strength Miami Heat team taking on the Trail Blazers Saturday, you may be disappointed. LeBron James strained his groin in the second quarter of the Heat’s loss to the Kings Friday night and is questionable for the anticipated Saturday showdown, so reports Ethan Skolnick of Bleacher Report.…

  23. Mark Cuban didn’t like sleeved Christmas jerseys, but they didn’t really impact shooting

    Dec 27, 2013, 1:11 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Golden State Warriors

    It was the first question about all the games on Christmas Day: What did you think of the Christmas Day NBA sleeved jerseys? Personally, not a huge fan. It’s not the sleeves, those don’t bother me (I know some people hate sleeves, I just see Patrick Ewing at Georgetown). However, the oversized logos and the…

  24. Latest NBA All-Star balloting released; LeBron, Durant leading vote getters

    Dec 26, 2013, 3:12 PM EDT

    NBA All-Star Game 2013

    We warned you this would be the case — there are not many changes in the All-Star Game fan voting as we move through the process. Who you vote for early tends to be who you vote for late. The fans choose the starters for the annual exhibition game and as of Thursday when the…

  25. Christmas night NBA grades: Durant is on the nice list, the Nets get a lump of coal

    Dec 26, 2013, 3:26 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v New York Knicks

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while trying to get that “Christmas Jammies” song out of your head….  Brooklyn Nets not named Deron Williams. If you want to blame everyone in a Brooklyn uniform (ugly, Christmas Day sleeved uniform) for that disaster of a loss, I can’t blame you. They were…
