  1. Report: Lakers, Rockets, Hornets talking reworking Chris Paul trade

    Dec 9, 2011, 4:47 PM EST

    Kobe Bryant, Chris Paul

    This could get interesting. And it could provide David Stern a “face saving” way out of his public relations disaster. The Lakers, Hornets and Rockets are talking again about ways to sweeten the three-team trade vetoed by Stern yesterday, tweeted Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo (who has been on top of this story from the start).…

  2. Magic may file tampering charges against Nets for talking to Dwight Howard

    NBA: Orlando Magic at Los Angeles Clippers

    And you thought the Chris Paul situation was messy…. The Orlando Magic are considering filing tampering charges against two NBA teams for reaching out to Dwight Howard (who is still under contract to Orlando), reports David Aldridge at NBA.com. This report has been confirmed by other sources. Those two teams are the New Jersey Nets…

  3. Knicks moving forward to get Chandler, amnesty Billups

    Tyson Chandler of the Dallas Mavericks c

    It was the big story yesterday — until Chris Paul was traded then untraded — and it will shake up the Eastern Conference. And it is happening — the New York Knicks will sign Tyson Chandler today tweets Howard Beck at the New York Times. The Knicks will use the amnesty clause on Chauncey Billups…

  4. Report: Dwight Howard wants to be traded to Nets

    Dec 9, 2011, 1:21 AM EST

    Dwight Howard Brook Lopez

    We can only speculate if David Stern stepping in at the behest of the owners to nix the Chris Paul trade had anything to do with it, but apparently Dwight Howard isn’t thinking Lakers. He’s thinking Brooklyn New Jersey Nets. He’s thinking Deron Williams. Howard wants to be traded to the Nets and will tell…

  5. Cavaliers’ owner emails David Stern to block Chris Paul trade to Lakers

    Dec 9, 2011, 12:58 AM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers v New Orleans Hornets

    The three-team deal that was in place to send Chris Paul to the Lakers was killed by the league late Thursday, presumably at the behest of a group of small-market owners who loudly protested. One such owner was Dan Gilbert of the Cleveland Cavaliers, who emailed the commissioner directly to express his feelings on the…

  6. After killing Chris Paul deal to the Lakers, there’s no way the league can trade him anywhere else

    Dec 8, 2011, 10:21 PM EST

    Chris-Paul-lakers-trade-killed

    The deal was done, agreed to in principle by all three teams. The Lakers would get Chris Paul, in exchange for Pau Gasol and Lamar Odom. The Rockets would end up with Gasol, and the Hornets would end up with a solid package of Odom, Luis Scola, Kevin Martin, and Goran Dragic, with the cap…

    The Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    Within hours of all parties saying the deal was all but done, the proposed three-team trade that would have sent Chris Paul to the Los Angeles Lakers is dead. And David Stern is standing over it holding the gun. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo writes said the deal is dead because the league — which currently…

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

    Dec 8, 2011, 8:16 PM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 8, 2011, 7:33 PM EST

    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.

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

    Dec 8, 2011, 2:41 PM EST

    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…

  12. Report: Dwight Howard giving Orlando chance to improve

    Dec 8, 2011, 10:56 AM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 8, 2011, 2:28 AM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 7, 2011, 2:29 PM EST

    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…

  15. Bulls, Magic among many who want Jamal Crawford

    Dec 7, 2011, 10:09 AM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 7, 2011, 9:37 AM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 7, 2011, 8:31 AM EST

    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…

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

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

    Dec 6, 2011, 7:14 PM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 6, 2011, 1:39 PM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 6, 2011, 11:01 AM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 6, 2011, 10:06 AM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 6, 2011, 9:17 AM EST

    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…
