    If you’re going to fail, fail big. Late in the Kings’ blowout win over the Chicago Bulls Monday night Sacramento’s Derrick Williams makes the steal and has the breakaway dunk, so he decides to showboat a little and pass off the backboard to himself for the big throwdown.

    US-TECHNOLOGY-GOOGLE-GLASS

    It’s one of the features of Google Glass — you can stream the video of people wearing the computer-in-your-eyewear “glasses.” So what if you gave them to a player during warm-ups, a cheerleader, a sideline reporter and others at an NBA game? We will find out Friday night as the Sacramento Kings host the Indiana…

    Dec 10, 2013, 10:58 AM EDT

    Rudy Gay

    Rudy Gay did not suit up for the Sacramento Kings Monday night. Not that they needed him, they got 32 from DeMarcus Cousins, 31 from Derrick Williams and 24 from Isaiah Thomas as they rolled to an impressive win over Dallas. However, when Gay (and Quincy Acy and Aaron Gray) walked into the building Monday…

  9. Kings’ Isaiah Thomas goes off glass to Derrick Williams for dunk (VIDEO)

    Dec 10, 2013, 8:46 AM EDT

    Derrick Williams

    Rudy who? The shorthanded Kings played well and put on a show in a win over Dallas Monday night. The highlight of that show? Isaiah Thomas on the fast break going off-the-backboard with the pass to Derrick Williams for the finish. Thomas had 24 points and 12 assists, Williams had a career-high 31 points in…

    Five ideas that could help make the NBA even greater: Offensive Goaltending: Let’s get rid of it. The “in the cylinder” call is routinely one of the toughest for refs to get right on the floor, and we know how the subsequent huddle and review process can suck the life out of a game. If it…

  12. Report: Kings not done trading, Jason Thompson next on block

    Dec 9, 2013, 11:19 AM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Miami Heat

    Getting Rudy Gay in a trade from Toronto was not a sign the Kings want to make a run at the playoffs right now in the West — they are one of just two teams in a deep conference with no real shot at the postseason (Utah is the other). No, this was about future…

  13. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Pacers, Heat and a lot from out West at the top

    Dec 2, 2013, 2:03 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Boston Celtics

    The Eastern Conference has two elite teams — Indiana and Miami — and they are on top of the PBT Power Rankings for this week. Then you don’t see another team from the East until No. 12, which speaks to the depth of the West and the drop off after the East elite.   1.…

  14. Breaking down the Derrick Williams for Mbah a Moute trade: It’s as win-win as it gets

    Nov 26, 2013, 12:16 PM EDT

    Derrick Williams

    The first rule for a GM in “winning” a trade is to make the other GM think he’s winning it. Even if you think you’re fleecing him. The swap sending Derrick Williams to Sacramento and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute to Minnesota — which has become official — would have been an easy sell for both…

    We have told you before that Minnesota was shopping around Derrick Williams, looking for a team that wanted to take a chance on his potential and was willing to give up a steadier veteran in return.

    Nov 19, 2013, 11:06 AM EDT

    Derrick Williams

    This is not something likely go down in the near future if it goes down at all, so just put this in your “things that could happen after Christmas or close to the deadline” file. We’ve told you before that the Minnesota Timberwolves are looking to trade Derrick Williams. Flip Saunders and the rest of…

  17. NBA All-Star balloting opens with some interesting questions

    Nov 15, 2013, 4:56 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    If he doesn’t come back until December, is Kobe Bryant still a starting All-Star guard in the West? Or should Stephen Curry or James Harden have that spot? Does Kevin Love move past Tim Duncan into the starting lineup? Is Paul George a starter in the East? Is it time for a Derrick Rose/Kyrie Irving…

  18. Report: Knicks’ long-term plan is to keep ‘Melo then recruit Kevin Love

    Nov 12, 2013, 6:13 PM EDT

    Kevin Love, Corey Brewer

    We at PBT danced around this a little earlier talking about how Minnesota is willing to make moves to win now in an effort to put a winner around Kevin Love so he will not leave. It’s a long, long ways off, but in the summer of 2015 Love will be the premiere free agent.…

  19. Report: Minnesota willing to move Derrick Williams, Alexey Shved for veterans

    Nov 12, 2013, 12:01 PM EDT

    Derrick Williams

    Derrick Williams and Alexey Shved are reportedly on the market but this is all about Kevin Love. If that sounds strange, follow along here. Minnesota is entering a “win now” phase and they are off to a nice 5-3 start this season thanks to their expected strong offense and a better than expected defense. They…

    Nov 2, 2013, 8:45 PM EDT

    Ronny Turiaf

    The Timberwolves had their season completely derailed last year by injuries to the bulk of the team’s core rotation players. While the stars are healthy in Minnesota for now, another reserve went down with an injury that should keep him sidelined for quite some time. Ronny Turiaf, signed this summer for frontcourt depth as a…

  21. Josh Smith rattles home game winning three for Pistons (VIDEO)

    Oct 25, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Josh Smith

    If you’re playing the odds, letting Josh Smith take the game winner from three is a smart play — he is a career 28.3 percent from beyond the arc. What the Timberwolves didn’t know is last season Josh Smith shot a solid 36.5 percent from three from the right side above the break — which…

  22. Timberwolves pick up option on Derrick Williams, now just have to find fit

    Oct 22, 2013, 3:02 PM EDT

    Derrick Williams

    Derrick Williams is going to stay with the Timberwolves — the team is picking up his option for this season as expected, reports the Associated Press. On the very surface this seems a simple and smart move — he started 56 games for the Wolves last season, averaging 12 points and 5.5 rebounds a game…

    Kevin Love, Nikola Pekovic, Ricky Rubio

    Last season: The Timberwolves never had much of a chance to finish better than their 31-51 record, thanks to a rash of injuries to the team’s top players. Kevin Love, Ricky Rubio, Chase Budinger and Nikola Pekovic all missed substantial time due to injury, rendering the season an unforced failure in the process. Signature highlight…

    Sep 27, 2013, 1:03 PM EDT

    Chase Budinger, Taj Gibson

    The injury bug just will not leave the Minnesota Timberwolves alone. A season after they lost Kevin Love for much of the year when he broke his hand twice, and after Ricky Rubio missed part of the season (and wasn’t himself for much of it) recovering from a major knee injury comes this news: Chase…
