    Apr 13, 2014, 7:30 PM EDT

    Pat Riley chose not to upgrade the roster in exchange for the team’s most tenured veteran, and it was an extremely wise decision.

  2. The Extra Pass: Fixing Pacers offense not simple, easy

    Apr 1, 2014, 7:59 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Washington Wizards

    The Pacers offense has scored 84 points or fewer in its last five games. The problems are ball handling and spacing, ones that are not that easily fixed with the playoffs less than three weeks away.

  3. Thursday NBA grades: The Sixers deserve an “A+”…. for tanking

    Mar 28, 2014, 2:08 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Houston Rockets

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while playing with your Simpsons LEGO figures… Philadelphia 76ers efforts to tank. This is not about the players on the Sixers, those guys went as hard as they could (it was 43-43 at one point), they are simply overmatched. That’s because GM Sam Hinkie and…

  4. Sixers GM took Evan Turner to the airport after trading him to Pacers

    Mar 15, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Sam Hinkie

    Evan Turner wasn’t initially that fond of the Sixers new GM, but he may have changed his mind on his way out of town.

  5. Report: Spurs tried to trade for Evan Turner before Pacers got him

    Mar 13, 2014, 11:15 AM EDT

    Evan Turner, Jeff Ayres

    Evan Turner played his way out of the NBA cellar before the trade deadline. Apparently, the only question was which championship contender he’d join. The Pacers traded for Turner, but reportedly he could have been a Spur. Marc Stein of ESPN: It emerged shortly after trade deadline that San Antonio tried hard to make deadline-day…

  6. Tuesday night NBA Grades: San Antonio with another impressive statement

    Mar 12, 2014, 2:33 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Chicago Bulls

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while thinking I never had teachers like that… San Antonio Spurs offense. The Bulls defense has forced everyone they have faced lately into an ugly, grappling fight on the ground that favors Chicago. Even Miami fell victim to it. San Antonio rose above it with…

  7. Extra Pass: Are the Detroit Pistons putting a new twist on tanking or being lousy?

    Mar 10, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Greg Monroe, Andre Drummond, Josh Smith, Maurice Cheeks

    The fewer the minutes for a team’s best players, the more likely teams are to be tanking and vice versa. Except in Detroit.

  8. James Harden, Evan Turner get into shoving match in Rockets’ blowout win over Pacers (VIDEO)

    Mar 8, 2014, 11:00 AM EDT

    WASHINGTON WIZARDS VS. HOUSTON ROCKETS

    Late in the third quarter Friday with the Rockets leading the Pacers by 23 points, James Harden and Evan Turner got into it a bit, and the players had to be separated after getting face-to-face and a little shoving ensued. This appeared to be Harden intentionally agitating things, as this play had been whistled dead…

  9. Sixers’ losing streak now 11 games away from setting new NBA record

    Mar 6, 2014, 12:14 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks  v Philadelphia 76ers

    The last time the Philadelphia 76ers won a game it was Jan. 29 in Boston. Since then the Sixers have lost 15 in a row, by an average of 19.8 points a game (a couple 40+ point losses skew that number). Coach Brett Brown is not sure his team will win another game this season…

  10. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Miami putting its foot down on the gas

    Mar 3, 2014, 3:43 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks

    The PBT power rankings have returned with not a lot of change from last week — Miami, Indiana, San Antonio and Oklahoma City are the top four (in whatever order you wish) then there is a gap to the Clippers, Rockets and teams trying to knock on that door. Meanwhile the Sixers look like they…

  11. Evan Turner playing point guard for Pacers

    Mar 3, 2014, 10:30 AM EDT

    Evan Turner, Chris Johnson

    With starting point guard George Hill out injured the last two games, the Indiana Pacers have undertaken an interesting experiment: using Evan Turner at point guard. Turner, a wing by trade, played point guard at Ohio State and dabbled at the position in Philadelphia. In Indiana, he was expected to take Danny Granger’s minutes as…

  12. It’s official: Danny Granger is a member of the Los Angeles Clippers

    Feb 28, 2014, 6:31 PM EDT

    Portland Trailblazers v Indiana Pacers

    Doc Rivers realized earlier this season that this Clippers roster was not going to be enough to contend in the West. Now during buyout season he’s gone and added some talent. Glen Davis as the third big will be the most important addition — he’s solid and that makes him a massive upgrade over Ryan…

  13. Reports: Danny Granger will sign with Clippers when he clears waivers Friday

    Feb 28, 2014, 1:27 AM EDT

    Danny Granger

    Doc Rivers has been looking for some help at the three — Jared Dudley has not panned out as hoped and Matt Barnes is solid as a reserve but not the guy who starts on a contender. Rivers even tried Hedo Turkoglu in that role. Now Danny Granger is going to get a chance. Granger,…

  14. It’s official: Sixers reach buyout with Danny Granger; Clippers frontrunners to land him

    Feb 26, 2014, 5:27 PM EDT

    Danny Granger

    Danny Granger is going to get his chance to play for a contender — and his next contract. Which it looks like he will do as a member of the Los Angeles Clippers. While this has been expected for days it has become official: The Philadelphia 76ers have reached a buyout agreement with Granger, ,…

  15. PBT Extra: Does Evan Turner solidify Pacers atop East? Rockets tops out West?

    Feb 26, 2014, 4:41 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Indiana Pacers

    After a few weeks mid-season hiatus — which is what Chris Paul and LeBron James really want for the All-Star break — PBT Extra is back with the incomparable Kay Adams at the helm. Today she and I start off talking about what Evan Turner can mean to the Pacers — as long as he…

  16. Tuesday night NBA grades: DeMar DeRozan is the Raptors go to guy

    Feb 26, 2014, 2:32 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Cleveland Cavaliers

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while wishing you had watched the Winter Olympics in a snow fort…  DeMar DeRozan, Toronto Raptors. He is the guy the Raptors go to in the fourth and what’s different than the Rudy Gay era is how he gets his points — it’s not isolations.…

  17. Report: If Granger bought out Spurs have interest, maybe not Heat

    Feb 25, 2014, 7:10 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks

    We are still waiting to see if the Philadelphia 76ers and Danny Granger are going to be able to come to a buyout agreement. While talks are ongoing, a few teams are circling like vultures just in case Granger is going to be a free agent. The timeline is March 1 — if the Sixers…

  18. PBT Podcast: Jarron Collins talks about his brother Jason; plus Knicks, Sixers not looking good

  19. Monday night NBA grades: The yin and yang of Sixers, Knicks

    Feb 25, 2014, 2:11 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks  v Philadelphia 76ers

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while mourning the loss of Harold Ramis (RIP)….. Philadelphia 76ers on the court. My. Lord. They. Are. Terrible. The Sixers have lost 11 in a row after getting just routed by the Milwaukee Bucks 130-110. That would be the 11-win Milwaukee Bucks, which shot 57.1…

  20. Danny Granger not suiting up for Sixers Monday, buyout decision likely in 24 hours

    Feb 24, 2014, 6:47 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors vs Indiana Pacers

    Philadelphia didn’t trade for the Pacers’ Danny Granger to make them better this season. That’s the opposite of the plan. Philly got some picks for Evan Turner that they wanted and Granger is just another asset — he could be used in a sign and trade this summer to bring in players they actually want.…

  21. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Heat on the top, Sixers fall to very bottom

    Feb 24, 2014, 2:49 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors vs Miami Heat

    We have a new team at the top and the bottom of PBT’s weekly NBA Power Rankings. Miami’s defense is back and propelled them to a couple wins that have them back on top of the chart. It has taken some sustained losing — a real effort — on the part of a Sixers team…

  22. Sixers’ Thaddeus Young admits to feeling left out of the trade deadline action

    Feb 22, 2014, 7:30 PM EDT

    Thaddeus Young

    Since the beginning of the season, it’s been widely known around the league that the Sixers’ veteran trio of Spencer Hawes, Evan Turner, and Thaddeus Young were all available in trade as the team began its rebuilding process. Turner was involved in the biggest deal of the day, getting sent to a Pacers team with…

  24. Trade Deadline Winners/Losers: It’s a good day to be a Pacers fan

    Feb 20, 2014, 9:24 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Boston Celtics

    It was the day of the role player. There was a fair amount of action at the NBA’s trade deadline but none of it involved the big names that floated around a little — no Rajon Rondo or Pau Gasol, and Kevin Love was never in play. Still, some teams made smart moves, and some…

  25. Pacers trade Danny Granger to Sixers for Evan Turner

    Feb 20, 2014, 4:12 PM EDT

    Britain NBA Preseason Basketball

    It was a lackluster NBA trade deadline by any reasonable standard, and once 3 p.m. Eastern had come and gone, there was nothing of note that went down that would improve any of the contending teams significantly. It wasn’t until more than 30 minutes after the deadline had passed that we found out about the…
