  1. Michael Finley wants another shot in the NBA

    Jan 1, 2012, 2:44 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Sacramento Kings

    Michael Finley was last seen as a bit player on Boston in the 2010 playoffs. He was unable to get floor time due to age and injuries and quietly faded into the sunset, right? Not so fast. HoopsHype spoke to the former Spurs champion who says that he wants to give it another go… now…

  2. NBA Power Rankings: Mavericks start out season on top

    Dallas players Carter, Marion, Nowitzki, Odom, Kidd, and Terry pose for photos during media day at the team's headquarters in Dallas, Texas

    Welcome to our inaugural power rankings for the 2011-12 NBA season (a regular Monday feature at PBT). These are fun if ultimately meaningless — in the NBA we have a playoff system to decide who is best (are you listening college football?). This is a preseason ranking, so remember that when you get mad about…

    Our morning look around the NBA with stories worth reading and notes that are not their own post here at PBT. A fantastic read at Hoopspeak.com on what the Thunder need to do to get Kevin Durant more open looks. After signing Baron Davis for the mini mid-level, the Knicks are out of the running…

  4. NBA Season Preview: Phoenix Suns

    nash-gentry-preview

    Last season: 40-42, good for 10th place in the West, and six games out of the playoff picture. Head Coach: Alvin Gentry Key Departures: Vince Carter was waived by the team and was picked up by Dallas. Aaron Brooks signed to play in China just before the lockout was resolved, and while the Suns still…

  5. Suns training camp notes: High hopes for Telfair, improvement for Lopez, dealing with Pietrus

    Timberwolves Telfair Basketball

    The Phoenix Suns are holding training camp in town this week at Grand Canyon University. Here are some notes from Sunday’s morning and evening practice sessions: – The Suns were without Grant Hill, Sebastian Telfair, and Markieff Morris for their morning practice session, but had them on the floor for the evening session, once Vince…

  6. Suns may look to limit players’ minutes thanks to compressed schedule

    nash-warmup

    The NBA lockout was resolved just in time to still give us a season, but it’s a 66-game schedule that’s jam-packed into a little over three and a half months. That’s something all teams are going to be forced to deal with, but in Phoenix, where two of the team’s best players in Steve Nash…

    Just because you didn’t go to work today — you’re at home trying to hang Christmas lights, like that’s not work — doesn’t mean the wheels of NBA free agency and trades stopped. Not in the least. This post is your one-stop shop for up-to-date, breaking info on what is happening around the league. (If…

    Philadelphia 76ers v Chicago Bulls

    Let’s say you had a full day of work on Thursday, and then a dinner engagement with a friend, or your kid had a basketball game or something. Then on Friday you had another full day, and then a work Christmas party. This is the holiday season, everyone’s busy. Perhaps you’ve missed what’s gone on in…

    Atlanta Hawks v Chicago Bulls - Game Two

    Today is going to be the Black Friday Sales of the NBA — there will be deals happening fast here, there and everywhere. Just like at Wal*Mart, you might have GMs pepper spraying others to make sure they get the player they want. It’s going to be hard to keep up with all the information,…

  10. Grant Hill agrees to one-year deal to stay with Suns

    Dec 9, 2011, 12:23 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Phoenix Suns

    Not everybody wants to play for the Knicks. Grant Hill has decided to stay with Steve Nash — and the warm winter weather of Phoenix — and has agreed to a one-year, $6.5 million deal to play for the Suns this season, reports Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic. The Suns were long considered the…

  11. Don’t bet on Grant Hill heading East just yet. Or is he…

    Dec 8, 2011, 10:07 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Phoenix Suns

    UPDATE 10:07 am: I guess it depends on where the news is coming from. While Arizona says Hill is staying put, more reports in the New York Post Thursday say Grant Hill is about to be a Knick. “It’s not 100 percent done, but he’s leaning,’’ one source said. The Bulls and San Antonio also…

  12. Report: Grant Hill leaning toward Knicks, not Suns

    Dec 7, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Phoenix Suns

    The conventional wisdom is that, like so many people in their “golden years,” Grant Hill was going to spend the rest of his (playing) days in the warm sun and great training facilities of Phoenix. But maybe he is going to trade that in for a cold but exciting New York Winter. That’s what Marc…

    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…

  14. Grant Hill choices down to Suns, Clippers, Knicks, Bulls

    Dec 5, 2011, 12:34 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Phoenix Suns

    It’s going to come down to what Grant Hill really, really wants. He has narrowed his free agent teams down to four quite different choices, reports David Aldridge at NBA.com. Grant Hill has his free agent Final Four, according to sources: the incumbent Suns, the Clippers, the Bulls and the Knicks. Each provides its own…

  15. 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…

  16. Grant Hill’s return to Suns a “big issue” for Steve Nash

    Dec 1, 2011, 11:29 PM EDT

    steve nash-grant hill

    The Suns have already made it clear that bringing back Grant Hill this season, who is currently an unrestricted free agent, is a “first order of business and a top priority.” In case you may have thought they weren’t putting enough pressure on themselves to retain Hill’s services, Steve Nash — who you may have…

    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.…

  18. Keeping Hill in free agency Phoenix’s “top priority”

    Nov 30, 2011, 6:37 PM EDT

    HILL_GRANT

    From Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic: At 7 a.m. Phoenix time, the Suns began talking to agents of players. That meant checking in on some of their own guys but the first calls needed to go to the agents of free-agent players to show the Suns’ interest. The Suns will be feeling out the market for…

  19. How about Michael Redd on the Heat? That should solve things.

    Aug 8, 2011, 12:26 AM EDT

    REDD_MICHAEL

    The trick here is to look past the actual conjectured free agency target and look to the greater schematic. But we’ll start with said conjectured free agency targets. From the Miami Herald:  If the Heat cannot sign preferred choices Shane Battier, Grant Hill or Tayshaun Prince postlockout, Miami will consider Michael Redd and Tracy McGrady,…

  20. Did Jordan ruin it for Kobe, LeBron and everyone else?

    Jul 25, 2011, 8:00 PM EDT

    Michael Jordan

    LeBron James is no Michael Jordan. Kobe Bryant is no Michael Jordan. Dwyane Wade, Vince Carter, Allen Iverson, Grant Hill and even Harold Minor have not been the next Michael Jordan. Derrick Rose and Kevin Durant will not be Jordan either. Nobody is going to be the next Michael Jordan. Nobody. Ever. We know that,…

  21. Heat want a small forward, possibly Battier, and Eddy Curry if he loses 40 lbs.. Literally.

    Jul 17, 2011, 3:30 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Golden State Warriors

    The Miami Heat are still thinking about how to improve their team to get it over the top (one would have thought bringing in the best free agent class in history would have done it, but one would be wrong), even in a lockout. They have a number of options in mind for upgrades at…

  22. Lockout veteran Grant Hill learned lessons from last one

    Jun 28, 2011, 3:55 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Phoenix Suns

    There are a handful of guys still around the NBA from the last time the league locked out, the 1998-99 season, which cost the league 32 games. Grant Hill of the Suns is one of those guys and told Marc Spears of Yahoo there are lessons to be learned. “You want to stay in shape.…

  23. Grant Hill lays career-crushing ankle problems on Pistons medical staff

    Apr 28, 2011, 1:11 PM EDT

    Grant Hill #33

    Some people just have forgotten or do not realize how good Grant Hill was. How explosive, how devastating on the crossover and attacking the rim. Follow this link to some video highlights. Then ankle injuries robbed him of that explosiveness. He’s come back and become a solid player with some old-man game knowledge, but he…

    It’s been a fun first round so far, but here is a look back at the 10 best first round series ever. Sacramento leaders will make they pitch to other NBA owners about why the Kings should stay today. They are hoping the other owners have more open minds than the Maloofs. Grant Hills is…

  25. Bulls fan curses at, spits on Grant Hill… wait Grant Hill?

    Apr 6, 2011, 1:55 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Phoenix Suns

    Grant Hill is about the least offensive guy in the NBA. Even Jalen Rose gets along with him now. Hill doesn’t trash talk, was an elite player,  has fought back from devastating ankle injuries to be a key player again, and David Stern loves him because he doesn’t scare the rich corporate CEOs in the…
