    Dec 7, 2011, 3:45 PM EDT

    Caron Butler

    For a guy on the wrong side of 30 coming off major knee surgery that caused him to miss most of a season, Caron Butler has some pretty sweet options ahead of him for this season. Butler is down to a final four, tweets Chris Broussard of ESPN. Caron Butler’s choices: SA or CHI for…

  2. Wednesday morning one liners (now with extra rumors)

    Dec 7, 2011, 11:39 AM EDT

    NBA And Players Representatives Meet To Discuss Possible Settlement

    Our morning look around the NBA with stories that are not their own post here at PBT. In case you didn’t get it in your inbox, here is David Stern’s letter to fans sent out yesterday. After the lockout and months of talk of change, does the new NBA feel any different than the old…

  3. Bulls, Clippers going hard after wing players Butler, Prince

    Dec 2, 2011, 10:15 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v San Antonio Spurs, Game 3

    The Chicago Bulls need a wing player to create shots and take some scoring burden off Derrick Rose. The Los Angeles Clippers need a wing player to fill out a roster with Eric Gordon at the guard spot and Blake Griffin in the paint. Both teams have started to reach out to guys like Caron…

  4. Thursday morning one liners: NBA rumor mill keeps churning

    Dec 1, 2011, 11:01 AM EDT

    Durant football

    LeBron James and Kevin Durant played flag football Wednesday night. The score: Nobody tore an ACL. That’s the only score that matters. If you want to get an early jump on MVP voting (which, admittedly, may be a tad premature what with training camps not even open yet) we’ve got you covered here at NBC.…

  5. Wednesday morning one liners: Portland loves Brandon Roy

    Nov 30, 2011, 11:40 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    Do not underestimate the love of the Blazers fan base for Brandon Roy, or how that could weight into plans to use the amnesty clause on him. Carlos Boozer thinks the Chicago Bulls can win an NBA title. This year. How desperate are the Knicks for a big man to take a one year deal?…

  6. Kyle Singler closes in on a deal with Real Madrid

    The NBA is currently in the process of moving the lockout into its rearview mirror, but even that development can’t bring home all of the league’s wayward sons. There are plenty of players who signed contracts overseas without an NBA out, and beyond that, apparently, a contingent that’s able to find better contract conditions overseas…

  7. Tuesday morning one liners: Rumor mill starting to spin

    Nov 29, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    Kris Humphries Nets

    If you read one thing on the new NBA CBA, this breakdown by Larry Coon of ESPN should be it. This will make you smarter. Here is a complete list of all 129 free agents that hit the market Dec. 9. It makes almost no sense for the Lakers to make a run at Kris…

  8. You can add Rockets to list of teams that want Nene

    Nov 28, 2011, 7:17 PM EDT

    Nene

    Nene will be the most coveted free agent on the market this year. He is a true center who can defend the paint, is an efficient shooter (61.5 percent last season) who will give you around 14 points a game, and is a solid rebounder. In a league full of fours masquerading around as fives,…

  9. The Nets are very excited to make their problems worse in free agency

    Nov 27, 2011, 12:54 PM EDT

    Deron-Williams

    Here’s the best part about all the games lost and money squandered and damage done to the game in this lockout. All the attempts to curb spending are going to end with a free agency class getting considerably more than it deserves. It has some stars in it, but the best options are either facing…

  10. Russian club will not renew Austin Daye’s contract

    Nov 25, 2011, 11:15 AM EDT

    Daye_dunk

    The Pistons’ Austin Daye packed up in September and was off to Moscow, signing a two-month deal to play with BC Khimki. He learned that life in Moscow is different than where he grew up in Los Angeles The staff at BC Khimki learned they don’t really want to keep Daye around. With his contract…

  11. Austin Daye finding life in Moscow is not like Los Angeles

    Daye_dunk

    Take a guy who grew up on the warm and diverse streets of Los Angeles then drop him in Moscow for a few months and you have the making of an interesting story. Or a terrible sitcom. That’s what happened to Austin Daye, the Pistons forward signed a two-month deal to play with Moscow’s BC…

    Nov 1, 2011, 1:48 PM EDT

  13. Ben Gordon is not the most optimistic guy in the world

    Oct 12, 2011, 7:00 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Atlanta Hawks

    Hey, remember when Ben Gordon was an elite scorer in the league, making huge buckets against the Celtics in one of the most exciting playoff series in league history? Yeah, me neither. But his time in Detroit must have seriously put the grumpies in his soul, because his interview with the Detroit Free Press is…

  14. Report: Tracy McGrady not signing to play in China

    Oct 4, 2011, 3:55 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Atlanta Hawks

    Tracy McGrady is still far more popular in China than his game warrants — he was the star playing beside Yao Ming for years in Houston and will always be remembered that way in China. So it’s not shocking to see rumors of him signing in China popping up now and again. But it’s not…

  15. Report: Ben Wallace had wife’s gun, knew he was in the wrong

    Pistons big man Ben Wallace, who anchored the defense that won the franchise a title in 2004, was arrested over the weekend.

  17. We welcome the Pistons to the advanced statistics club

    Sep 27, 2011, 1:52 PM EDT

    Image (1) pistons_logo-thumb-250x208-11727.png for post 6294

    I’m guessing this has been planned long before Pistons owner Tom Gores saw “Moneyball” last weekend. Although that Brad Pitt can be quite persuasive. Last weekend was the New England Symposium on Statistics and Sports, which you were not invited to because you are not a sports math geek. Or not geeky enough. No, I…

  18. Report: Austin Daye signs deal to spend lockout in Russia

    Sep 23, 2011, 4:03 PM EDT

    Daye_dunk

    Austin Daye, who spent the last couple weeks working on his game at the Impact Series out in Las Vegas, is now apparently going to work on his game in Russia. He has reportedly inked a deal with BC Khimki, a Moscow based team in the Russian league, according to Obrad Fimic (who is a…

    Daye_dunk

    Newly hired Detroit Pistons head coach Frank speaks with media as Pistons President Dumars listens during news conference in Auburn Hills, Michigan

    There are a lot of changes coming to the Pistons once play resumes. A new owner who wants to contend, a new coach and a new coaching staff. With it, it looks like there’s going to be a change of approach, one way or another. From the Orlando Sentinel: The Orlando Magic are about to…

  21. Tayshaun Prince was not meant to be a pitcher

    Sep 6, 2011, 3:19 PM EDT

    TPrince_sad

    Tayshaun Prince is the kind of basketball player you want on your team — long lanky defender who can disrupt on the wing, can knock down shots and create his own looks. The man has an NBA ring and an Olympic gold medal for a reason. What he is not is a good pitcher. Prince…

  22. Lawrence Frank interviews 31 for assistant coaching jobs

    Sep 2, 2011, 11:54 AM EDT

    Newly hired Detroit Pistons head coach Frank speaks with media as Pistons President Dumars listens during news conference in Auburn Hills, Michigan

    Lawrence Frank is detail oriented and very thorough. I’m not clinically trained to diagnose someone as obsessive. So I’ll let you judge for yourself. Frank was given the freedom to hire his own staff, so he has left no stone unturned in his search for assistants, according to Pistons.com. He’s talked to 31 coaches and…

  23. Report: Pistons will shop Richard Hamilton after lockout

    Aug 29, 2011, 12:00 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Los Angeles Lakers

    Is this really shocking? Or even news? Since we’re left to speculating about what teams will do after the lockout, it will pass the test for now. But since the Pistons were reportedly shopping Richard Hamilton at the last trading deadline — any moves were killed by the impending sale of the team — it…

    Scotty Robertson, who coached nearly 300 NBA games and was an assistant for many more, has died at the age of 81 at his home in Louisiana. He lost a battle with cancer, reports the Detroit News. Robertson coached the first 15 games the expansion New Orleans Jazz ever played in 1974. They went 1-14…

  25. Ben Gordon says it was worse than you think in Detroit

    Aug 17, 2011, 7:18 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Atlanta Hawks

    From the outside looking in, the Detroit Pistons were a god-forsaken mess last season. A coach the players didn’t respect, a near mutiny at one point with players skipping a practice in protest and losses piling up fast on a proud franchise. To put it in Detroit terms, they looked worse than the automotive industry.…
