    Dwight Howard

    Another day, another report that the Orlando Magic are leaning heavily toward keeping Dwight Howard in their camp and trying to convince him to stay. This time it’s in a series of tweets of from Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated we hear that Dwight is staying and that he still has no interest in going…

  2. Lakers, Celtics talk then kill Gasol for Rondo; LA still looking

    Mar 12, 2012, 9:30 AM EDT

    Rajon Rondo, Pau Gasol

    Pau Gasol and Rajon Rondo have both traveled a similar path this season. Both were offered up in a trade for Chris Paul, and when that didn’t work out they became the names fans of the Lakers and Celtics talked about shopping. For their part, both teams said they wanted to keep the guy publically,…

  3. Baseline to Baseline recaps: What kind of team are the Knicks?

    Mar 12, 2012, 4:07 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v New York Knicks

    What you missed while thinking if you are going to have two wives you may want to get off Facebook…. Lakers 97, Celtics 94: This rematch of a couple recent finals — which looked like those finals if you squinted really hard — was our game of the day. Sixers 106, Knicks 94: How this…

  4. Dwight Howard just wants to win. Which is why he’s refusing Chicago, still. Obviously. Because that makes sense.

    Mar 11, 2012, 9:40 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard Derrick Rose

    Ken Berger of CBSSports.com reports that the Magic finally have a team they’re willing to trade with, who wants Dwight Howard. One problem, he doesn’t. Howard has long said that all that matters to him is winning. That that’s what’s important. Which is made clearly by the fact he doesn’t want to go to… Chicago?…

  5. Winderman: The “Take my Turkoglu, please” trade deadline

    Mar 9, 2012, 7:30 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard, Hedo Turkoglu

    The shame of the NBA trading deadline is that it does not follow the post-Christmas “Boxing Day” tradition of Canada and other countries, where you spend the day after sorting out the junk from the actual gifts. In the NBA, it remains an all-in-one process, which is why, in this space over the past few…

  6. Wizards might trade you McGee… if you take Blatche, too

    UPDATE 7:38 PM: It’s not just McGee you can have if you take on Blatche, Michael Lee of the Washington Post tweets. Source just told me wizards have informed teams they can have any player except John Wall if they are willing to take Andray Blatche That is how bad the Wizards want Blatche out…

  7. Video: Dwight Howard scouts Bulls imitating Shaq, Barkley

    Mar 9, 2012, 2:54 PM EDT

    Sprint NBA All Star Celebrity Game

    Dwight Howard was joking around before his team went out and beat the Bulls Thursday night and gave his scouting report on the team — while doing an imitation of Shaquille O’Neal and Charles Barkley. Watch this or we’ll just give you another Dwight Howard trade rumor. Don’t make us do that. We feel like…

  8. Report: Magic a house divided on Dwight Howard trade

    Mar 9, 2012, 12:58 PM EDT

    Magic's Howard meditates just before the tip-off of their NBA basketball game with the New York Knicks in New York

    We all keep waiting for some kind of definitive decision from the Orlando Magic — are they going to keep or trade Dwight Howard? Maybe the reason we don’t have that answer is that the Magic are still divided on what they want to do, or what kind of trade package they want back. That’s…

  9. Friday And-1 links: Zach Randolph, trade rumors and more

    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). Zach Randolph is aiming to be back in the Grizzlies lineup next Tuesday against the Lakers. He has been out since Jan. 1 since tearing…

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

    Mar 9, 2012, 11:03 AM EDT

    Avery Bradley, Mickael Pietrus, Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen

    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…

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

    Mar 9, 2012, 10:04 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard;  Jerryd Bayless ; Chris Duhon

    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…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

  16. 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.…

  17. 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.…

  18. 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…

  19. 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…

  20. 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…

  21. 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.…

    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…
