Dwight Howard

  1. Celtics don’t expect to make big move at trade deadline

    The rumors swirling around the Boston Celtics are of radical changes — Rajon Rondo, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen have all had their names come up in trade scenarios — but in the end it may all be a lot of words with no action. Well, it is an election year, we should expect a…

  2. Report: Magic seek package similar to ‘Melo deal for Howard

    Mar 9, 2012, 10:04 AM EDT

    Orlando still has not decided that they are going to trade Dwight Howard — in fact, they seem to be leaning toward keeping him through the trade deadline and the end of the season — but if they do move him they are letting teams know what they want: A haul like Denver got last…

  3. Orlando tries to send message to Howard: Look, we can beat Bulls

    Mar 9, 2012, 12:19 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Everything Orlando does for the next 6 days is colored by Dwight Howard trade talk. That includes their 99-94 win over Chicago Thursday night — the Magic are trying to convince Howard that they can be contenders with him in tow if they just make a couple tweaks. Beating the actual contenders from Chicago and…

  4. Derrick Rose is just like you — sick of Dwight Howard talk

    Mar 8, 2012, 10:30 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard Derrick Rose

    Are you sick of all the Dwight Howard rumors and talk? Derrick Rose is. Many Bulls fans have an odd obsession with Howard — they are offended Chicago is not on his list of preferred destinations because they see a Rose/Howard pairing as a cornerstone that can contend with the Heat. They see Howard as…

  5. Beasley trade talks ongoing with teams trying to woo Howard

    Mar 8, 2012, 4:29 PM EDT

    Michael Beasley, Mike Dunleavy, Carlos Delfino

    If you were Dwight Howard, would the presence of Michael Beasley on a team make you want to play there? I wouldn’t think so either, but some of the teams most active in trying to get the forward out of Minnesota are teams trying to impress Howard, according to Ken Berger at CBSSports.com. It’s no…

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Three

    Here is our daily look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). This is why the Internet is brilliant — the Derrick Rose Don’t Dance tumblr. Among the things that will factor into Dwight Howard’s decision making…

  7. More and more it sounds like Magic may not trade Howard

    Mar 8, 2012, 11:09 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Let’s be up front about the strategy: If you were the Orlando Magic and you planned to trade Dwight Howard, you would be smart to say publicly and to teams that call you were not going to make a trade. Make some team go James Dolan crazy and offer you too much for your star.…

  8. Pau Gasol remaining calm as trade deadline approaches

    Mar 7, 2012, 8:46 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Phoenix Suns

    Over the next week, Pau Gasol’s name is going to come up a lot in rumored trade talks. Most of which have little if any foundation, but the rumors will be out there. Gasol said it doesn’t bother him anymore. He’s moved past it. Here is what he said, via the Los Angeles Daily News.…

  9. March Madness: The other reason the trade market is slow

    Mar 7, 2012, 2:44 PM EDT

    Kentucky v Tennessee

    While there is a lot of talk — from the likely rumors about Jamal Crawford being moved out of Portland to the ridiculous ones about Rajon Rondo being moved out of Boston — there is not a lot of action, and it feels like less buzz than normal just a week before the NBA trade…

  10. Cuban says Mavericks not making (but are taking) trade calls

    Mar 7, 2012, 12:01 PM EDT

    Mark Cuban, Shawn Marion

    Welcome to the semantics of the NBA trade deadline. In the minds of NBA front office types, there is a dramatic difference between a team calling others and saying “I’d like to trade you Player X” versus just taking calls listing to other teams pitch you on getting Player X. For fans, that line seems…

  11. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Bobcats and Pistons both won. Seriously.

    Mar 7, 2012, 4:02 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    What you missed while playing a sport where you use stun guns on your opponents… Pistons 88, Lakers 85 (OT): This is why I can’t take the Lakers seriously as a contender — because after each of their big wins this year they turned around the next game and laid an egg (beat Boston lost…

  12. Catching up with Lenny Cooke, the former can’t-miss kid

    Mar 6, 2012, 6:07 PM EDT

    Lenny Cooke

    So many things can happen to high-school phenoms. Kobe Bryant is a five-time NBA champion. LeBron James is a two-time MVP. Dwight Howard is the best center in basketball. Sebastian Telfair is a mediocre backup point guard who has bounced around the league. Jeremy Tyler is currently trying to pay his dues in the D-League.…

  13. Report: Nets GM King “considered” shutting Brook Lopez down for season

    Mar 6, 2012, 5:19 PM EDT

    Brook Lopez

    Nets center Brook Lopez missed the first 32 games of this season with a broken right foot. Recently, Lopez sprained his right ankle. He is expected to be out for around 3 weeks, but Nets GM Billy King has reportedly considered shutting down his young center for the remainder of the season. From Colin Stephenson…

  14. Magic GM says 6 to 8 teams pushing for Dwight Howard

    Mar 6, 2012, 11:37 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Apparently there are a number of teams in the “rent-a-Howard” market. The latest news on the Dwight Howard trade front is that while teams are lining up for a shot to get him even if it is for just the rest of this season, right now there is no movement. We cannot emphasize this enough…

  15. Tuesday And-1 links: Kyrie Irving will not play for Australia

    Mar 6, 2012, 11:08 AM EDT

    Cavaliers Irving reacts to making a three point basket in the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge game during the NBA All-Star weekend in Orlando

    Here is our daily look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). Kyrie Irving is not going to be on Team USA in London in 2012, but he had a standing offer from Australia (he was born…

  16. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Kevin Love outduels Blake Griffin

    Mar 6, 2012, 7:43 AM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love is fouled by Los Angeles Clippers forward Reggie Evans in Minneapolis

    What you missed while buying way more Girl Scout cookies than you really should… Thunder 95, Mavericks 92: Oklahoma City scored the final eight points to win another close contest, which was our game of the night. Timberwolves 95, Clippers 94: With all their mistakes late, I have no idea how the Timberwolves pulled this…

  17. Nets’ Lopez out 3 weeks with sprained ankle. Now what for Howard trade?

    Mar 5, 2012, 5:24 PM EDT

    Brook Lopez

    We warned you that Brook Lopez’s ankle sprain early in the third quarter Sunday was pretty bad. You know it is not good when the coach will not address it after the game, saying they need to wait a day. The good news is that X-rays came back negative, but the bad news is that…

  18. Lots of people who Pau Gasol will not save want Pau Gasol

    Mar 4, 2012, 1:00 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics Kevin Garnett and Los Angeles Lakers Pau Gasol compete for the ball in Boston

    It’s really interesting to watch the evolution of a player like Pau Gasol, not only from the public’s consciousness perspective, but from that nebulous aspect of basketball which metrics can’t define. Our ability to define efficiency and production is better than ever and shouldn’t be disregarded when considering Gasol’s value. But there is another part…

  19. Report: Clippers interested in Ray Allen

    Mar 4, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Ray Allen, Nick Young

    Desperate times call for desperate measures. The Clippers have struggled without Chauncey Billups, missing their legitimate shooter at 2-guard and his ability to help manage the offense alongside CP3. (Who would have thought he’d need help?) So the Clippers have started showing up in trade rumors, and the latest one is both intriguing and bizarre.…

  20. Magic front office still feels time is on their side

    Mar 2, 2012, 12:32 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Right now, the Orlando Magic are heeding the advice of the Rolling Stones. They think time is on their side (yes it is). With the NBA trade deadline now less than two weeks away, the Dwight Howard saga remains in the same groove it has been for months — the Magic are trying to convince…

  21. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Another day, another Thunder comeback

    Mar 2, 2012, 8:22 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant, Ryan Anderson

    What you missed while taking Google to court because their “street view” map option caught you urinating in your front yard…. Miami 107, Trail Blazers 93: This score doesn’t do justice to how much the Heat dominated this game, which we broke down as our game of the night. Thunder 105, Magic 102: Who says…

  22. Video: David Stern talks Lin, lockout, more with Bob Costas

    Mar 1, 2012, 10:40 PM EDT

    David Stern

    David Stern swung by Costas Tonight (on the NBC Sports Network) to do an interview that felt like old times — Bob Costas and Stern talking was a regular thing back in the NBA on NBC days. As you would expect, it’s a good interview. They covered everything from Jeremy Lin to the Hornets sale…

  23. Dwight Howard may land a lot of places, but not with Knicks

    Mar 1, 2012, 2:47 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    Any time a superstar is on the move via free agency, there are a couple teams that just automatically come up in the conversation. Whether there is anything to it or not. Fans will bring it up, rumors will get flowing, logic be damned. Like Dwight Howard to the Knicks. New York already has a…

  24. Magic try to bring in players like Nash not ship Howard out

    Mar 1, 2012, 12:26 PM EDT

    Steve Nash Dwight Howard

    Orlando is not ready to trade Dwight Howard. They may not be by March 15, but they certainly are not right now. In fact, multiple reports have them working the phones trying to bring in more talent to put around Howard rather than ship him out. And they know to keep him they can’t just…

    Feb 29, 2012, 10:00 PM EDT

    Sprint NBA All Star Celebrity Game

    I think Kevin Hart was in more places All-Star Weekend than Dwight Howard. He was MVP of the Celebrity Game. He was the hardest working man in show business promoting his new movie, “Think Like a Man,” coming to a theater near you soon. With that guy who played Turtle in Entourage. Here is a…
