Dwight Howard

  1. Chris Paul deal does not improve the Lakers, unless a Dwight Howard deal is next

    Dec 8, 2011, 8:16 PM EDT

    chris-paul-lakers-trade

    If the three-team trade between the Lakers, Hornets, and Rockets is finalized as expected when the league opens for business on Friday morning, L.A. will have sent Pau Gasol and Lamar Odom out of town in exchange for Chris Paul  — and possibly another piece to make the salaries match, like Emeka Okafor. In doing…

  2. Report: Three-team deal bringing Chris Paul to the Lakers has been completed in principle

    Dec 8, 2011, 7:33 PM EDT

    Chris Paul Andrew Bynum

    UPDATE (7:33 p.m. ET): According to yet another tweet from Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, the three-team deal has been completed in principle.

  3. Lakers, Rockets, Hornets talking three-way Chris Paul trade

    Dec 8, 2011, 2:41 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v New Orleans Hornets

    After things seemed to cool of on Wednesday, the Chris Paul trade rumors have heated up fast and furious on Thursday. That includes a three-way deal where Paul ends up with the Los Angeles Lakers, who give up Pau Gasol. Then there is both Boston and New York working hard to find multi-team deals that…

    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…

  5. Report: Dwight Howard giving Orlando chance to improve

    Dec 8, 2011, 10:56 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Any reports that leak out of these intense meetings like the Orlando Magic had with Dwight Howard Monday need to be taken with a grain of salt. Or a handful. That said, the report out of Hoopsworld about where Dwight Howard stands with the Magic makes some sense. First, because it notes he is not…

  6. Report: Chris Paul says he will not extend with Clippers, Warriors

    Dec 8, 2011, 2:28 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    Chris Paul is in control of his destiny. He will ultimately decide where he will work in the fall of 2012. Which is apparently bad news for the Los Angeles Clippers and Golden State Warriors. Those two teams had been considered frontrunners in the CP3 sweepstakes, but both were hesitant to include their biggest guns…

  7. Did Stan Van Gundy question Dwight Howard’s leadership?

    Dec 7, 2011, 2:29 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v New York Knicks

    There is no debate that Dwight Howard is the best center in the NBA, a potential MVP candidate who can be a force at both ends of the floor. But is he a team leader? Magic coach Stan Van Gundy may have concerns, according to a post at Real GM. Magic coach Stan Van Gundy…

  8. Bulls, Magic among many who want Jamal Crawford

    Dec 7, 2011, 10:09 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    The Chicago Bulls need a two guard who can create his own shot to really round out their team (and take some pressure off Derrick Rose). They may be close to landing the best two guard on the market right now — Jamal Crawford. The Hawks spark plug off the bench is a free agent…

  9. Update: Chris Paul trade moving fast, Dwight Howard not

    Dec 7, 2011, 9:37 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v New Orleans Hornets

    This much has become clear: It is very likely Chris Paul will be traded before the start of the NBA season and talks are fast tracked on that move. However, talks surrounding a Dwight Howard trade have slowed to a trickle as Howard has not told the Magic what he wants so that team remains…

  10. Magic CEO steps down, but not until he pitches Dwight Howard

    Dec 7, 2011, 8:31 AM EDT

    Bob Vander Weide Magic

    We’re not exactly sure why Orlando Magic CEO Bob Vander Weide announced his sudden retirement on Tuesday. Was it because he had been the guy overseeing Orlando’s interests in the NBA labor negotiations, which ended up not changing the Dwight Howard situation at all? Was it because he is married to the daughter of Magic…

  11. Circle your calendars: Games not to miss on NBA schedule

  13. Report: Celtics, Clippers, Warriors “strongly engaged” in Chris Paul talks

    Dec 6, 2011, 7:14 PM EDT

    The Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    The New Orleans Hornets are going to move first — Chris Paul is the superstar most likely to be moved by the start of the season. (The Dwight Howard situation has more questions.) And the Boston Celtics, Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Clippers are at the front of the line, according to Adrian Wojnarowski…

  14. Report: Dwight Howard has not told Magic his intentions

    Dec 6, 2011, 1:39 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    Chris Paul has been up front — he sat down with Hornets officials on Monday and was pretty clear he was not signing an extension and returning to New Orleans. He is not stringing the Hornets along (which is little consolation for the team’s fans). Dwight Howard on the other hand… He has seemed conflicted…

  15. Suns 2011-12 schedule leaked, no home games against Amare’s Knicks or LeBron’s Heat

    Dec 6, 2011, 11:01 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Phoenix Suns

    The NBA is set to release its official 2011-12 schedule later this evening, during a program which will be broadcast on NBA TV at 7 p. m. ET. But one team’s schedule has leaked in its entirety, and it shows that plenty of fans won’t be happy with the way things shake out. The Phoenix…

    New Jersey Nets forward Outlaw celebrates after scoring against the Toronto Raptors during triple overtime in their NBA game in London

    Our morning look around the NBA with stories that are not their own post here at PBT. Travis Outlaw had surgery on his hand this summer after a boxing injury (he hit a heavy bag and broke it). That was eight weeks ago and things are supposed to be healed, but the Nets doctors would…

  17. Report: Mavericks saving cap space to make run at Deron Williams

    Dec 6, 2011, 10:06 AM EDT

    NBA London 2011 -  New Jersey Nets v Toronto Raptors

    Jason Kidd cannot play forever. I know, it already seemed like he has, but the fact is he will eventually need to walk away from the game. His contract is up after this season. And the Mavericks want Deron Williams to replace him, according to Ken Berger at CBSSports.com. That despite the fact Williams said…

  18. Blake Griffin trying to focus on court, not trade rumors

    Dec 6, 2011, 9:17 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    Know this — Blake Griffin wouldn’t mind playing with Chris Paul or Dwight Howard if the Clippers could swing one of them in a trade. “Yea, I guess that’d be all right,” Griffin told ProBasketballTalk with a laugh. “That would be great, obviously, both of those guys are very, very good. But it’s got to…

  19. Chris Paul trade chatter grows, Lakers right at front of line

    Dec 6, 2011, 8:55 AM EDT

    Chris Paul Andrew Bynum

    The buzz around the league that the New Orleans Hornets have decided that they have to trade Chris Paul and do it fast is growing. And the name that keeps coming up more and more as a potential landing spot for the star point guard is the Los Angeles Lakers. Hornets’ general manager Dell Demps…

  20. Report: Chicago Bulls in mix for Dwight Howard

    Dec 5, 2011, 5:49 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    We told you already that the Lakers may be the front runners to land either Dwight Howard or Chris Paul, although there are plenty of obstacles and other bidders that could get in the way of that. Like the Chicago Bulls. Because who doesn’t want to play with Derrick Rose. In the same article where…

  21. Report: Hornets, Magic both thinking deal with Lakers

    Dec 5, 2011, 3:23 PM EDT

    Chris Paul, Kobe Bryant

    The New Orleans Hornets have their eyes wide open and know they are going to have to trade Chris Paul. The Orlando Magic are holding out more hope of retaining Dwight Howard but that feels like a longshot as well. The front offices in both cities have to be gauging offers right now, or they…

  22. Deron Williams says 90 percent chance he stays with Nets

    Dec 5, 2011, 12:54 PM EDT

    Deron Williams

    Deron Williams name gets thrown in with Chris Paul and Dwight Howard a lot. And he is in the same situation — he is an elite player who can opt out at the end of this season and become a free agent. But when the Jazz traded him to New Jersey last year Williams’ situation…

  23. Dwight Howard and his Orlando dilemma

    Dec 5, 2011, 8:03 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Phoenix Suns

    Everyday until Dwight Howard makes a decision about his future we will hear conflicting reports about whether he wants to stay or go in Orlando. Because Howard himself is conflicted, torn between the only franchise he’s known and what is best for him as a player. The evidence of this conflict comes via this Baynews9.com…

  24. NBA Free Agency: The final chance for Vince Carter’s redemption

    Dec 4, 2011, 10:56 PM EDT

    vince-carter-suns

    At the 2000 NBA All-Star Game, Vince Carter put in one of the most prolific, maybe the single best performances in NBA history. In the 2000 summer Olympics, Vince Carter dunked over Frederic Weis in arguably the most famous posterization of all time. And in the early to mid-2000’s, Carter put together one of the…

  25. Rondo’s not really cool with this whole “we may trade you to a non-contender, but seriously we love you” thing

    Dec 3, 2011, 6:30 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo Chris Paul

    How would you like it if you found out, through the media, no less, that your employer was thinking of shipping you to a worse company in exchange for someone who everyone says is so much better than you despite his never having reached the pinacle of your profession and your longstanding success with your…
