  1. Report: Stephen Curry leaving Nike for Under Armour endorsement deal

    Sep 27, 2013, 12:43 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Phoenix Suns

    Under Armour has been trying to break bigger into the NBA market for a while and they lined up some nice stars — Brandon Jennings, DeAndre Jordan — who fans know but who have never really broken into the big time. That has changed. Stephen Curry is leaving Nike for a new Under Armour deal,…

  2. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: Milwaukee Bucks

    Sep 27, 2013, 9:19 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Milwaukee Bucks - Game Three

    Last season: The Bucks went 38-44, reaching the playoffs despite a mid-season firing of Scott Skiles. Their high-scoring and high-shooting backcourt of Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis defined the team, but it was really as a team without a strong identity. Before the playoffs began, Jennings predicted the Bucks would beat the Heat in six…

  3. Report: Spurs add Corey Maggette to training camp roster

    Sep 26, 2013, 3:27 PM EDT

    Corey Maggette

    Corey Maggette had a rough season with the Pistons last year. He appeared in only 18 games — none after Dec. 15, for reasons unknown — while putting up career-low averages in points, minutes, and field goal percentage. Maggette has been known throughout his 14-year career for his ability to score and get to the…

  4. It’s official: That’s Coach Rasheed Wallace to you

    Sep 26, 2013, 10:24 AM EDT

    Rasheed Wallace

    You can just call him coach. We’d known for a while Rasheed Wallace was going to be hired by the Detroit Pistons as a coach and he had been working with players at the Pistons’ facilities prior to training camp opening next week. Now it’s official, the Pistons announced — Rasheed Wallace has been added…

  5. Report: Brandon Jennings punched by rapper The Game at L.A. club

    Sep 24, 2013, 3:26 PM EDT

    Brandon Jennings, Joe Dumars

    This post must start with a disclaimer: Take all of this with plenty of salt. Reports of what celebrities did in a club late at night are as reliable as milk a week past the use by date. But if you choose to believe the reports, apparently rapper The Game got fed up with Brandon…

  6. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: Detroit Pistons

    Sep 24, 2013, 9:36 AM EDT

    Andre Drummond

    Last season: The Pistons went 29-53, their fifth straight losing season and fourth straight season outside the playoffs. Andre Drummond emerged as a possible franchise player, producing at elite levels to match his impressive physical profile. Greg Monroe also operated at a near-All Star level for the second straight season, though somewhat ignores his defensive…

  7. How Al Horford learned to stop worrying and love Danny Ferry

    Sep 23, 2013, 5:08 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks - Game Four

    Al Horford admits it. Like a lot of other Hawks fans this summer he wondered what GM Danny Ferry was thinking. Then it all came together. Now Al Horford looks around at the guys working out before training camp starts with the Hawks next week and he thinks he sees the plan. At least he…

  9. Josh Smith working with Rasheed Wallace on midrange shots, post moves

    Sep 18, 2013, 1:17 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Atlanta Hawks

    Last season, Josh Smith shot 30.5 percent from the midrange. He was less bad (38.4 percent) if he was 15 feet out closer to the baselines, but in general if Smith wanted to take a midrange jumper the other team would let him. With Smith going to be the starting three for the Detroit Pistons,…

  10. Pistons’ Villanueva testified former UConn player Tate George scammed $250,000 from him

    Sep 18, 2013, 11:19 AM EDT

    Charlie Villanueva

    While there were a whole lot of Pistons players in Detroit on Tuesday working out to get ready for training camp, Charlie Villanueva was on a witness stand. Federal prosecutors in New Jersey are going after former Connecticut Huskies basketball player Tate George saying he is a con man who misused money invested with his…

  11. With three bigs who can finish, Josh Smith says Detroit alley-oops will be “race to the rim”

    Sep 12, 2013, 12:08 PM EDT

    Hawks forward Smith reacts after a shot in the first half during their game against the Celtics in Game One of their NBA Eastern Conference Playoffs basketball game in Atlanta

    “Me, Drummond and Monroe, it’s going to be a race to the rim to see who can get there fastest for lobs.” That is Josh Smith talking about the blessing and the curse of the Detroit Pistons — with Smith, Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe in the front court, the paint could get a little…

  12. Rasheed Wallace has Andre Drummond working on post moves, midrange

    Sep 11, 2013, 2:57 PM EDT

    rasheed wallace knicks

    This is why you want Rasheed Wallace as a coach. Look past the mountain of technical fouls, past the forest of quirks, and you have a guy who really understood how to play the game. A guy young player will respect and listen to. Right now before camp opens, Wallace is working with second-year big…

  13. Brandon Jennings says Pistons ‘should own the glass’ next season

    Sep 10, 2013, 10:01 PM EDT

    Brandon Jennings, Joe Dumars

    The Pistons have a lot of new pieces to fit together once training camp opens at the end of the month, but that’s going to be part of the fun. Detroit added Brandon Jennings and Josh Smith to an already talented group of young players, and put a new head coach in place in Maurice…

  14. Rick Pitino thinks Brad Stevens is a perfect fit for the Boston Celtics

    Sep 7, 2013, 11:00 PM EDT

    Rick Pitino

    SPRINGFIELD, Mass. – Brad Stevens was introduced as the Boston Celtics new coach in early July. The former Butler head coach is making the daring jump, leaving the college ranks for the NBA. In the past, this has not gone well for many great collegiate coaches. John Calipari lasted three seasons in New Jersey and Rick…

  16. Watch some Clippers play a little flag football (VIDEO)

    Sep 3, 2013, 1:16 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    We’re all ready for some football (remember the NFL season kicks off right here on NBC Thursday night). Blake Griffin and some other Clippers were ready as well and they took part in a flag football game for charity hosted by Matt Barnes and Snoop Dogg. Among the celebrities taking part are Griffin, DeAndre Jordan,…

  17. Bucks GM says Sanders key to rebuild, he wants that challenge

    Sep 2, 2013, 4:30 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Milwaukee Bucks - Game Three

    For the casual fan who didn’t watch a lot of Bucks basketball last season, the four-year, $44 million extension Larry Sanders got from the Milwaukee Bucks was head scratching. Who was he and why give him that much money? Because he is one of the up-and-coming best shot blocking, defensive bigs in the game and…

  18. Wall, Sanders got their rookie extensions, what about the other rookies?

    Aug 30, 2013, 1:42 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    John Wall will be with the Wizards for five more seasons, making $80 million. Larry Sanders will be with Milwaukee for four more years, $44 million. Those are the first two extensions to the rookie deals out of the 2010 draft. They were both expected and both got done early — teams have until Oct.…

  19. Caron Butler says he is excited to be mentor, leader on Bucks

    Aug 30, 2013, 10:50 AM EDT

    Caron Butler

    Milwaukee is a team in transition, one rebuilding after the failed Brandon Jennings/Monta Ellis experiment. They have one foundational piece in place with Larry Sanders in the paint. Now they will see if John Henson, Brandon Knight and others will be part of that, while guys like O.J. Mayo and Ersan Ilyasova help them get…

  20. Andre Drummond working on his moves at airport

    Aug 29, 2013, 6:10 PM EDT

    Andre Drummond

    He’s no Nate Robinson, but this is pretty great from Andre Drummond: What makes this work is Andre Drummond is a hulking human being — 6’11″ and pushing 300 pounds. When that starts coming at you and making moves, you flinch. Doing it to unsuspecting people in an airport could almost be a Japanese game…

  21. Report: A year ago, some Bucks officials wanted to cut Larry Sanders

    Aug 29, 2013, 12:22 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Milwaukee Bucks - Game Three

    There are issues with the Bucks signing Larry Sanders to a long-term, four-year, $44 million contract extension, but overall it’s probably not a terrible decision. Sanders has been accused of mailing it in at times, and was among the leaders in technical fouls last season, tying for third with Blake Griffin and Carmelo Anthony, and…

  22. Will Bynum tells a Rasheed Wallace trick shot story

    Aug 28, 2013, 3:57 PM EDT

    Rasheed Wallace Pistons

    Who doesn’t love a good Rasheed Wallace story? SLAM did a Q&A with veteran Pistons guard Will Bynum, who will be back with the team when camp opens in five weeks. He talked about how smart Greg Monroe is, what a beast Andre Drummond is, and how they need to work to build chemistry with…

  24. Kelly Olynyk, C.J. McCollum fare well in annual rookie survey

    Aug 27, 2013, 9:04 AM EDT

    Kelly Olynyk

    We already told you that when asked during the rookie photo shoot who their favorite player in the league was, the majority of incoming NBA players said Kobe Bryant. But those rookies to be were asked a lot more, too — and it was the Celtics Kelly Olynyk and the Trail Blazers’ C.J. McCollum who…

  25. Dorell Wright said being brought along slowly is why he is still in NBA

    Aug 26, 2013, 5:52 PM EDT

    Dorell Wright

    Dorell Wright was one of six guys taken straight out of high school back in 2004 — Dwight Howard was the biggest name but Josh Smith and J.R. Smith were as well. (The reason there is a one-and-done rule now is how other picks that year like Robert Swift and Sebastian Telfair made owners want…
