    It started with Drew Gooden, who had been frustrated with the perceived lack of calls going his way. There was 2:14 left in the eventual Wizards 117-107 win over the Lakers Friday night when Gooden got tangled up with the Lakers’ Nick Young and the Wizards forward wrapped up Young’s arm and yanked it as Gooden…

    Whatever value Drew Gooden provides the Wizards offensively, he’s still an absent-minded defender. (hat tip: Zach Harper of Eye on Basketball)

  6. Report: Longtime NBA employee calls 2012-13 Bucks’ locker room worst he’d ever seen

    Oct 4, 2013, 2:04 PM EDT

    Brandon Jennings

    The Bucks have had one of the NBA’s busiest offseasons. They traded Luc Richard Mbah a Moute and Ish Smith, waived Drew Gooden and Gustavo Ayon, let Monta Ellis, Samuel Dalembert and Mike Dunleavy Jr. walk in free agency and signed-and-traded Brandon Jennings and J.J. Redick. That’s most of the roster turned over, yet it’s…

    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…

  8. Another veteran big out on the market, Chris Wilcox

    Aug 26, 2013, 10:59 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Boston Celtics

    Around this time of year — late August, early September — is when teams fill out the end of the roster. It’s when Chris Wilcox got a call… Except will he this year? Last season in Boston he was solid in a limited role — 4.2 points and 3 rebounds a game in about 13.6…

  9. Drew Gooden clears waivers, is unrestricted free agent

    Jul 19, 2013, 7:47 PM EDT

    GOODEN_DREW

    Don’t everyone crowd around, the line forms to the right. Drew Gooden is a free agent. The Bucks amnestied the 11-year veteran and nobody stepped up to clear him of waivers, so now anybody can negotiate him reports Marc Stein of ESPN. Gooden is owed two years, $13.4 million on his contract, the end of…

  10. Milwaukee Bucks amnesty Drew Gooden

    Jul 16, 2013, 7:53 PM EDT

    Paul George, Drew Gooden

    This really isn’t a surprise — the Bucks spent pretty much all of last season trying to trade Drew Gooden and failed, so they just decided to cut the cord. The Milwaukee Bucks have waived Gooden using the league’s amnesty provision, the team announced Tuesday afternoon, five hours before the midnight deadline to use it…

  11. This isn’t 2007 — LeBron, Spurs both very different than last finals meeting

    Jun 5, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Tim Duncan LeBron James

    This isn’t the first time Tim Duncan and the Spurs stood in the way of LeBron James and what he sees as his destiny to be one of the game’s all time greats. Back in 2007 LeBron dragged his Cavaliers squad to the Finals, only to be just carved up by the Spurs winning their…

  12. Kevin Durant: ‘I can do a lot more’

    May 13, 2013, 12:41 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant falls to the floor against Memphis Grizzlies guard Tony Allen in the final moments in the second half of their Game 2 NBA Western Conference semi-final playoff basketball game in Oklahoma City.

    Anyway you slice it, Kevin Durant is doing a lot for the Thunder. Traditional stats say Durant is averaging 34.0 points, 10.6 rebounds, 6.1 assists, 1.6 steals in 44.3 minutes per game since Russell Westbrook’s injury. Advanced stats say Durant has 2.2 win shares for a team that has won five playoff games, which means…

  13. Bucks offseason homework: Figure out what kind of team they are

    Apr 30, 2013, 4:46 PM EDT

    jennings-ellis

    There is a dump truck full of questions the Milwaukee Bucks need to answer this offseason — what to do with interim coach Jim Boylan, should they expend a lot of energy to keep Monta Ellis and/or J.J. Redick, how much to offer Brandon Jennings, and many more. But the answers to all of those…

  14. Report: Mavericks interested in Brandon Jennings. If Bucks move him.

    Feb 13, 2013, 8:40 AM EDT

    Brandon Jennings

    The Milwaukee Bucks have tested the trade waters for Brandon Jennings — he’s a restricted free agent this summer they think is going to potentially get offers larger than they want to match. So do you trade him now and get something for him? The Bucks will listen. The Mavericks are interested if Milwaukee is…

  16. Just to be clear, Bucks have no plans to trade Brandon Jennings

    Jan 13, 2013, 3:29 PM EDT

    Brandon Jennings, Tiago Splitter

    Milwaukee Bucks management has some big-picture questions to answer going forward: What kind of team are they trying to build? Who best to coach that style of team? What players on the roster fit that system? Which need to be traded? Just know that whatever trades are coming down around the deadline, Brandon Jennings will…

  18. Stephen Jackson not exactly complimentary of Bucks organization

    Jan 2, 2013, 2:23 PM EDT

    stephen-jackson-spurs

    Saying that Stephen Jackson didn’t enjoy his brief time in Milwaukee a season ago would be an understatement. He appeared in just 26 games, before a falling out with Bucks head coach Scott Skiles had him riding the bench and not traveling with the team while a trade to send him out of town was…

  19. Report: Bucks still shopping Drew Gooden. Good luck.

    Nov 26, 2012, 11:43 AM EDT

    Paul George, Drew Gooden

    Drew Gooden has not yet set foot on the court for the Milwaukee Bucks this season, getting a DNP-CD in every game. He’s demoted. Benched. And so the Bucks are trying to trade him. Good luck. But that’s the buzz, reports Gery Woelfel at the Journal Times. The Bucks don’t comment on trade speculation but…

  20. Five players that need a change of scenery

    Kevin Martin

    Breakups are never fun, but sometimes it just has to be done. Maybe there’s someone new, or things have become stale, or both parties just need to go a different direction. The following is a list of five talented players who could really use the “it’s not you, it’s me” speech from their current teams.…

  22. Gooden says guys who draw charges will pay flopping fines

    Oct 5, 2012, 1:12 AM EDT

    Paul George, Drew Gooden

    Mark Cuban doesn’t love it. Neither does Blake Griffin. And Dirk Nowitzki. While a lot of players have said they like the NBA’s new policy of fines for flops and hope that it starts to curtail the embellishment of contact in the NBA, not everyone does. There are concerns about enforcement, about unintended consequences, about…

  23. Joel Przybilla agrees to terms with Milwaukee Bucks

    Aug 7, 2012, 1:40 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Houston Rockets, Game 6

    The Bucks have themselves a backup center. Veteran center Joel Przybilla has agreed to terms with the Milwaukee Bucks for next season, his agent told Gery Woelfel of the Journal Times. “We’re excited about this,” Bill Duffy, Przybilla’s agent, said in a telephone interview Monday night. “Joel had a great meeting last week with John…

  24. The “Violence Against Blake Griffin” situation

    Mar 23, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    He’s asking for it. OK, stop, that right there. That’s me trying to snag your attention with some sort of bombastic statement. I can assure you my position is more nuanced than this phrase, which by the way, in the context of violence of any sort — on-court, off-court, sexual, non-sexual — should never, ever…

  25. Celtics look like road warriors, maybe division champs after beating Bucks

    Mar 23, 2012, 2:07 AM EDT

    Celtics forward Garnett grins after a jump shot in the closing minutes in the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Atlanta Hawks in Atlanta

    Eight games in a row on the road — it was supposed to do Boston in, knock them out of the playoffs. It was the biggest test of the season and the Celtics old legs were not going to be able to live up to it. Friday night the road trip ends in Philadelphia and…
