Wizards’ big man Drew Gooden was fined for starting a late-game altercation with Nick Young of the Lakers.
Mar 22, 2014, 7:59 AM EDT
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)

Gooden has given Washington a dangerous, hot-shooting lineup.

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…

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…

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…
Jul 19, 2013, 7:47 PM EDT
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…
Jul 16, 2013, 7:53 PM EDT
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…

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…

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…

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…

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…
