    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…

    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.

    Dec 5, 2011, 5:49 PM EST

    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…

    Dec 5, 2011, 3:23 PM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 5, 2011, 12:54 PM EST

    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…

    Dec 5, 2011, 8:03 AM EST

    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…

    Dec 4, 2011, 10:56 PM EST

    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…

  8. 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 EST

    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…

  9. Report: Andrew Bynum “indifferent” to trade rumors

    Dec 3, 2011, 11:00 AM EST

    Andrew-Bynum-and-Dwight-Howard-806-306x248

    Andrew Bynum went straight from high school to the circus environment that can be the Los Angeles Lakers. It is in those three rings where he learned how to be a professional. That started with the little things, like eating healthier after practice than McDonalds, and worked its way up to dealing with the media.…

  10. Why are we talking trades for Paul, Howard? Money.

    Dec 2, 2011, 8:29 PM EST

    Dwight Howard

    Since about three minutes after David Stern and Billy Hunter sat bleary-eyed in a New York conference room to say they reached a deal, we have been talking trades. Specifically Chris Paul and Dwight Howard trades. The two superstar, franchise cornerstone guys who can opt out as free agents next summer and may push their…

    Dec 2, 2011, 8:06 AM EST

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Six

    Orlando Magic general manager Otis Smith said he wants to sit down with Dwight Howard and see where his head is. Prudent move. But what if Howard says his head is wanting out of Orlando? If Howard tells the Magic he is gone, then he might be gone really soon, tweets Marc Stein at ESPN.…

  13. Deron Williams turns down extension with Nets, may not be leaving

    Dec 1, 2011, 5:44 PM EST

    Deron-Williams

    Deron Williams is going to become a free agent. But that doesn’t mean he will not lead the team into Brooklyn next season — it’s just all about the money. On the face of it this certainly does sound dire — the agent for Williams has told the Bergen Record that his client will not…

    Dec 1, 2011, 2:41 PM EST

    Miami Heat v New Orleans Hornets

    This might be David Stern’s worst nightmare. The only thing that would make it worse is if union lawyer Jeffrey Kessler were Chris Paul‘s agent. Paul has informed the Hornets front office that he will not sign an extension with the team and that he wants to be traded to the Knicks, reports Adrian Wojnarowski…

    Dec 1, 2011, 2:20 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    Okay Celtics fans, you can stop now with plans for your 10-team trade where the Celtics send out Rajon Rondo and get back Derrick Rose, Dwight Howard and Rudy Gay.

    Durant football

    LeBron James and Kevin Durant played flag football Wednesday night. The score: Nobody tore an ACL. That’s the only score that matters. If you want to get an early jump on MVP voting (which, admittedly, may be a tad premature what with training camps not even open yet) we’ve got you covered here at NBC.…

  17. Hawks’ Josh Smith still on trade block. Any takers?

    Dec 1, 2011, 9:32 AM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Atlanta Hawks - Game Four

    Around the NBA draft last year the Atlanta Hawks shopped forward Josh Smith around. The feeling was mutual, Smith felt it was time for a change of scenery.

  18. Report: Lakers will trade Bynum for “right deal” (meaning Howard)

    Dec 1, 2011, 8:48 AM EST

    bynum-flagrant-beasley

    Jim Buss has a fondness for Andrew Bynum. Buss is now the guy calling the day-to-day shots for the Lakers but when he was coming up he was one of the champions of the Lakers drafting Bynum. This has made Bynum sort of Buss’ sign that he could do this job while many around the…

  19. Tyson Chandler expects to join new team

    Nov 30, 2011, 9:59 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks Victory Parade

    Tyson Chandler was the anchor of the Mavericks championship defense. In an era with no hands allowed on the perimeter, you can’t win without a big who can protect the rim. He was a key change that took them from contender to pretender. In a surprise development on the first day that NBA teams and…

  20. Orlando not ready to trade Dwight Howard. Yet.

    Nov 30, 2011, 3:51 PM EST

    dwight_howard

    Give this to Magic general manager Otis Smith — he was pretty up front. He has about the most difficult job in the NBA right now: Either retool the Magic roster enough that Dwight Howard wants to stay (a job Smith made harder on himself with bad moves last year), or find a way to…

  21. Nets GM says he hasn’t talked to Orlando in a year. Riiiight.

    Nov 30, 2011, 1:06 PM EST

    Dwight Howard Celtics

    And now comes the denial of the rumors. Which none of us will believe. Nets GM Billy King played dumb denied rumors that he is about to pitch Orlando on a Dwight Howard trade for Brook Lopez and picks, reports Howard Beck of the New York Times in this tweet. Hanging in East Rutherford today,…

  22. Reports: Chris Paul won’t sign in Boston; Pacers talk to Celtics

    Nov 30, 2011, 11:23 AM EST

    Rajon Rondo Chris Paul

    There is a lot of smoke around the Chris Paul to the Celtics rumors, enough to make you think there is some fire. But that is a very, very different thing than saying this trade is going to happen. More likely it is not. Why? For one, take this tweet from Chris Broussard of ESPN.…

  23. Report: Nets to make big trade offer for Dwight Howard

    Nov 30, 2011, 10:02 AM EST

    Orlando Magic v Charlotte Bobcats, Game 3

    New Jersey — soon to be Brooklyn — made a big move last year to get its first star in Deron Williams. Now owner Mikhail Prokhorov needs to get a second star and convince them both to stay. How about Dwight Howard? The Nets are going to make a big move to try and get…

  24. Report: Clippers will go hard after Dwight Howard

    Nov 29, 2011, 4:17 PM EST

    Blake Griffin, Dwight Howard

    This is what a star like Blake Griffin can do for a franchise. A year ago, the Los Angeles Clippers were not on anybody’s radar as a free agent until they got desperate. Now, in one day they have popped up as a potential landing spot for the two biggest free agents on the market.…

    Nov 29, 2011, 1:00 PM EST
