  1. Brandon Jennings got slapped in face at Drew League game (VIDEO)

    Aug 20, 2013, 2:55 PM EDT

    Brandon Jennings

    First Brandon Jennings got slapped around by the realities of the NBA marketplace, now this. That snark aside, Jennings deserves some credit here for not snapping and getting tossed himself. He was the cooler head. This was one of the Drew League semi-final games, the premiere L.A. pro-am league (and remember Jennings is an L.A.…

  2. Blazers GMs says Aldridge is happy, scoffs at trade rumors

    Aug 9, 2013, 2:38 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers

    Portland has a LaMarcus Aldridge issue to deal with — there are reports he is unhappy and his people have come to the Blazers proposing trades. Aldridge has denied all of this. Of course, if you’re an unhappy player it is best to have your agent and others do this kind of legwork while you…

  3. Mo Williams says he could have started elsewhere, wanted to win in Portland

    Aug 8, 2013, 8:53 PM EDT

    Mo Williams

    Mo Williams had some options, there were a number of teams that had interest in him — at Summer League you heard teams surprised he was available. The Miami Heat were among the teams that wanted him. Williams wanted a chance to win plus more than just the league minimum salary. He got it in…

  4. Report: Portland reaches deal to bring in Mo Williams

    Aug 7, 2013, 2:42 PM EDT

    Mo Williams

    Damian Lillard to start then Mo Williams off the bench? That’s a pretty good combination. That’s what Portland has now — the Blazers have reached a two-year $5.6 million deal with Williams, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. The second year is a player option. This is a great get for Portland, they now have…

    Jul 19, 2013, 10:44 PM EDT

    Mike Miller

    Mike Miller, who just cleared waivers after being amnestied by the Heat, becoming an unrestricted free agent, will have no shortage of contending suitors. Smart front offices – the type of front offices that can build a winning team that would entice Miller – recognize his value as a 3-point shooter, both because long-distance field…

    Jul 6, 2013, 5:01 PM EDT

    Dorell Wright

    Dorell Wright might have been a key veteran addition to the bench of a contender next season, but he chose to go to a team looking to continue its rebuild instead. Wright has agreed to a two-year deal worth $6 million to join the Portland Trail Blazers, according to multiple reports, including this one from…

  8. Dwight Howard and James Harden could form NBA’s best duo

    Jul 5, 2013, 7:43 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers

    Dwight Howard is a center. James Harden is a guard. Howard is one of the NBA’s best defenders. Harden is one of the league’s top offensive players. Howard is an elite interior scorer. Harden’s range extends beyond the 3-point line. Howard is excellent as the screener in pick-and-rolls. Harden is superb as the ball-handler on…

  9. Report: Timberwolves to sign Kevin Martin to four-year, $28 million deal

    Jul 2, 2013, 8:24 PM EDT

    Kevin MArtin

    The Timberwolves shot 30.5 percent on 3-pointers last season, dead last in the league. The difference between Minnesota and the 29th-place Magic was great than the difference between the third-best 3-point shooting team and the 21st-best 3-point shooting team. Not only did the Timberwolves need someone capable of making shots from beyond the arc, they…

  10. Report: Thunder aggressively pursuing Dorell Wright

    Jul 1, 2013, 4:41 PM EDT

    Dorell Wright, Mike Dunleavy, Monta Ellis

    Signing James Harden to a long-term extension proved too costly to the Thunder, so they traded him for Kevin Martin. Now Martin is a free agent, and he might be too expensive, too. So, once again, Oklahoma City is ready to downgrade. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports: Oklahoma City has begun an aggressive pursuit of…

  11. Grizzlies, 76ers looking to buy first-round draft picks

    Jun 20, 2013, 3:01 PM EDT

    Rudy Gay, Kwame Brown

    The Grizzlies traded their first-round pick to Cleveland to get under the luxury tax and save about $4 million. Now they can use some of that money to get a first-round pick back. Steve Kyler of HoopsWorld: Memphis is looking to buy a first-round pick, so expect the Grizzlies to get in the mix and…

  12. Sixers will consider Bynum return but have bigger issues to deal with

    Apr 19, 2013, 12:35 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers introduce Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson

    The Philadelphia 76ers gambled and lost. They traded Andre Iguodala to get back Andrew Bynum and rebuild their roster around an elite big man. Problem was, he’s an elite big man with terrible knees that never saw the court. And the aftermath of that decision is just beginning to come to down on the team.…

  13. Baseline-to-baseline recaps: Knicks wrap up two seed in the East, Lakers stay in playoff hunt with win over Spurs

  15. Jarrett Jack throws Dorell Wright’s shoe into the crowd (VIDEO)

    Dec 29, 2012, 2:30 PM EDT

    Jarrett Jack, Jrue Holiday

    One of the nice things about Dwyane Wade‘s integrity coming into question this week was that we all got to happily remember the time Wade threw Mike Bibby’s shoe out of bounds. It was pure comedy gold. From Wade’s subtle toss not to arouse suspicion, to Bibby’s “come on bro” expression afterward, to Wade’s taunting backpedal…it’s just…

  16. Three Stars of the Night: Digging the long ball

    Dec 27, 2012, 1:07 AM EDT

    James Harden

    How important is the long ball to the modern NBA offense? If the season ended today, four teams would place in the all-time top-40 for best team 3-point percentage – the Spurs, Knicks, Thunder and Heat. The best offensive teams seem to manufacture plenty of looks from behind the arc, and in that spirit, we’re…

  17. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Joakim Noah is all the offense Bulls need

    Dec 19, 2012, 3:27 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls' Noah celebrates basket against Boston Celtics' Terry during NBA basketball game in Chicago

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action.

We’ve got all the…

  18. Jrue Holiday out with sprained foot

    Dec 14, 2012, 2:29 PM EDT

    HOLIDAY_JRUE

    Philadelphia 76ers point guard Jrue Holiday isn’t sure how he sprained his foot, but we should be able to safely eliminate “bowling injury” from the list. Holiday has been an absolute workhorse for the 76ers this season, leading the team in scoring (19), assists (9), and minutes (38.5). That type of court time is creeping…

  19. Nick Young brings the swagger, the points, the Philly win

    Nov 21, 2012, 12:01 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers' Young celebrates with teammates Richardson and Holiday while playing against the Toronto Raptors during their NBA basketball game in Philadelphia

    Nick Young brought the full Swagy P to this game. Young can be maddening. His swagger, his confidence can lead to bad decisions. The kind of shots Kobe regrets taking Young doesn’t fear. For example, in the first quarter against the Raptors Tuesday night Young was in the right corner when he got a high…

  20. Don’t ask Doug Collins when Andrew Bynum is returning

    Oct 25, 2012, 12:57 PM EDT

    Maalik Wayns Doug Collins

    Coaches notoriously are in the “I will focus on what I can control” camp. If it is something beyond their control, they are not going to spend time worried about it. Injuries, and when guys come back from injuries, are beyond a coach’s control. So it’s no shock when Sixers coach Doug Collins plays dumb…

    Last Season: The Warriors hope that last season was one where the decisions the franchise made put the team in position to compete for years to come — starting now. First year head coach Mark Jackson didn’t have much to work with, and Stephen Curry‘s ankle problems that allowed him to play only 26 games…

  22. 76ers’ Wright says Bynum is better than Dwight Howard

    Sep 26, 2012, 7:14 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Los Angeles Lakers

    We are still in the honeymoon period with Andrew Bynum in Philadelphia. Fans love him. Teammates love him. Coaches are excited about ways they can use him in the offense. That honeymoon will end, it always does. Ask every Philadelphia sports hero. It will be interesting to see how Bynum handles it when things turn,…

  23. Thaddeus Young wants to start at three spot for Sixers

    Sep 10, 2012, 10:55 AM EDT

    Thaddeus young

    Thaddeus Young should be on your “Sixth Man of the Year” watch list. He averaged 12.8 points and 5 rebounds a game for the Sixers last year and this season he could bring a surge of athleticism and scoring when he enters the game for the Sixers. Except he doesn’t want to be on your…

  24. The 76ers roster could see a lot more shakeups

    Aug 20, 2012, 4:03 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers introduce Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson

    Philadelphia has gone another direction — Andre Iguodala is out, Andrew Bynum is in as the new face of the franchise. The young, anchor center who has Philly talking about something other than the Eagles. Well, for five minutes. The idea is to sell hope in Philly and build on a young core of Bynum,…

  25. Philly goes big with Bynum, which worries Doc Rivers (a little)

    Aug 16, 2012, 7:55 AM EDT

    Doug Collins on Wednesday told a great story that illustrates perfectly just what Andrew Bynum can mean to Philadelphia. Collins was in London calling basketball games for NBC when the Dwight Howard trade that brought Bynum to the Sixers went down. Collins and NBC Olympics hoops studio analyst Doc Rivers — old friends from around…
