    Dec 10, 2011, 8:30 PM EST

    NBA basketball spaulding

    Just because you didn’t go to work today — you’re at home trying to hang Christmas lights, like that’s not work — doesn’t mean the wheels of NBA free agency and trades stopped. Not in the least. This post is your one-stop shop for up-to-date, breaking info on what is happening around the league. (If…

  2. Chicago Bulls making serious run at Rip Hamilton

    Dec 10, 2011, 11:56 AM EST

    Rip Hamilton

    This comes as a surprise to just about nobody. But it also seems a good fit. And destined to happen. The Bulls are making a hard charge at Richard Hamilton to become their new two-guard, reports Aggrey Sam at CSNChicago.com. Rip Hamilton was bought out by the Pistons on Friday and is a free agent.…

  3. 2011 NBA Free Agency and Trade Current Events: This league is bananas, b-a-n-a-n-a-s

    Philadelphia 76ers v Chicago Bulls

    Let’s say you had a full day of work on Thursday, and then a dinner engagement with a friend, or your kid had a basketball game or something. Then on Friday you had another full day, and then a work Christmas party. This is the holiday season, everyone’s busy. Perhaps you’ve missed what’s gone on in…

    Atlanta Hawks v Chicago Bulls - Game Two

    Today is going to be the Black Friday Sales of the NBA — there will be deals happening fast here, there and everywhere. Just like at Wal*Mart, you might have GMs pepper spraying others to make sure they get the player they want. It’s going to be hard to keep up with all the information,…

  5. Pistons agree to buy out Rip Hamilton

    Dec 9, 2011, 6:02 PM EST

    Rip Hamilton

    Richard Hamilton has been perfecting his sulking game in Detroit over the last year or so, and the Pistons are finally done with him. According to Perry Farrell of the Detroit Free Press, the Pistons have agreed to buy out Hamilton’s contract and make him an unrestricted free agent. Farrell makes the important distinction that…

  6. Pistons have nothing to do with Chris Paul trade, but do re-sign Prince and Jerebko

    Dec 9, 2011, 12:04 AM EST

    Tayshuan Prince, Gerald Wallace

    From the AP: DETROIT – The Detroit Pistons are attempting to rebuild by keeping at least a couple key players. Tayshaun Prince and Jonas Jerebko will re-sign with the Pistons, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press on Thursday on condition of anonymity because the deals have not been announced. Prince, an…

  7. Tayshaun Prince agrees to four-year deal to stay in Detroit

    Dec 8, 2011, 2:16 PM EST

    Tayshuan Prince, Gerald Wallace

    There’s no place like home… or in this case your adopted home. While Tayshaun Prince flirted with the Los Angeles Clippers in his hometown, he will be staying in his adopted hometown and playing in Detroit. Prince has agreed to a four-year, $27 million deal to stay with the Pistons, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo.…

  8. Hawks show uncharacteristic sensibility with signing of Tracy McGrady

    Dec 8, 2011, 12:07 PM EST

    Detroit Pistons v Miami Heat

    Teams aren’t technically allowed to come to agreements with free agents just yet, but Tracy McGrady is reportedly locked in to join the Atlanta Hawks nonetheless. But, before anyone engages in the usual snark-fest that ensues whenever McGrady’s name comes up, they should honestly consider the terms and return on this deal. McGrady may not have the…

    Rajon Rondo Chris Paul

    Our morning look around the NBA with stories worth reading and notes that are not their own post here at PBT. The Celtics may have been closer to getting Chris Paul than you think. Eddy Curry is about to sign a deal with the Heat. So, you can just start sizing them all for championship…

  10. Report: Tracy McGrady agrees to one-year deal with Hawks

    Dec 7, 2011, 5:54 PM EST

    Detroit Pistons v Atlanta Hawks

    This was always a wink-and-a-nod game the NBA was playing this week — teams could talk to agents and players, but not work them out or offer contracts. Right. Like there was not going to be some handshake deals that just have to be inked on Friday. The NBA looks away and just pretends not…

  11. Caron Butler’s final four: Bulls, Spurs, Nets, Clippers

    Dec 7, 2011, 3:45 PM EST

    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…

    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…

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

    Dec 2, 2011, 10:15 AM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 1, 2011, 11:01 AM EST

    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.…

  15. Wednesday morning one liners: Portland loves Brandon Roy

    Nov 30, 2011, 11:40 AM EST

    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?…

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

    98264649.jpg.9378_crop_650x440

    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…

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

    Nov 29, 2011, 11:00 AM EST

    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…

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

    Nov 28, 2011, 7:17 PM EST

    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,…

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

    Nov 27, 2011, 12:54 PM EST

    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…

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

    Nov 25, 2011, 11:15 AM EST

    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…

  21. 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…

    Back in September Pistons big man Ben Wallace was pulled over and arrested then charged with drunk driving and having an unloaded weapon — his wife’s — in the back of the car.

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

    Oct 12, 2011, 7:00 PM EST

    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…

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

    Oct 4, 2011, 3:55 PM EST

    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…

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

    Sep 30, 2011, 11:04 AM EST
