  4. Mavericks trade for Bulls’ Greg Smith

    Jul 15, 2014, 5:22 PM EST

    Greg Smith, Josh Smith, Brandon Jennings

    Dallas frontcourt gets a little deeper. Chicago payroll gets a little slimmer.

  5. Taj Gibson and Carlos Boozer are the pivot points in Bulls’ pursuit of Carmelo Anthony

    Jul 2, 2014, 10:55 AM EST

    Houston waives talented Greg Smtih

  8. Rockets’ reserve big Greg Smith out for season after knee surgery

    Feb 28, 2014, 4:08 PM EST

    Houston Rockets v Sacramento Kings

    Rockets big man Greg Smith hasn’t seen a lot of court time in Houston this season. Even with Omer Asik out injured (or whatever was going on) Smith has gotten on the court for just 11 games. And it will stay at that number — Smith had knee surgery and is done for the season,…

  9. The Extra Pass: A Google goggle revolution dream, plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Dec 5, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Kirk Hinrich

    I have this odd vision for the future of the NBA, and in it everyone looks like Kirk Hinrich. Well, everyone doesn’t actually look like Kirk Hinrich, but all the players are wearing goggles nonetheless. That’s not just because they look cool and I think Hinrich is the undisputed king of accessorizing, and it’s not…

  10. Rockets’ Omer Asik to miss at least a week with thigh injury

    Dec 4, 2013, 12:04 PM EST

    Omer Asik

    Omer Asik will be out for at least a week after suffering a right thigh contusion, reports Jason Friedman of Rockets.com. Asik will be re-evaluated at that time to assess whether or not he’s able to return. Asik’s injury could leave Houston pretty shorthanded for Wednesday night’s contest against the Suns. Jeremy Lin is out…

  11. PBT NBA Power Rankings: San Antonio slides into top slot

    Nov 18, 2013, 1:56 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Atlanta Hawks

    Another season, another year of the Spurs just making teams pay with their execution. Portland is flying up the rankings, on the other end Utah continues to anchor the bottom.   1. Spurs (9-1, Last Week No. 2). The winners of seven in a row, they move into the top spot as they appear the…

  12. Report: Omer Asik changes course (somewhat), ready to play for Rockets

    Nov 18, 2013, 12:30 PM EST

    35973186b1f6fecf2a99f40715a2e485

    Omer Asik, who requested a trade from the Rockets last week, has missed both of Houston’s games since his request became public. Asik has not hidden his desire to leave the Rockets since they signed Dwight Howard and this was just taking the process a step further. Forcing a trade is not a pleasant process,…

  13. Three things to watch this weekend: Can the Pacers keep winning? The Nets stop losing?

    Nov 15, 2013, 4:14 PM EST

    Roy Hibbert Pacers

    There are a lot of interesting subplots we at PBT will watch as we head into this weekend — such ask, how loud can Sacramento Kings fans yell? — but here are the three things worth watching out for between going to you kid’s talent show and soccer games…. 1) Can the Pacers improve to…

  14. Rockets’ new backup center Greg Smith goes down with injury

    Nov 14, 2013, 9:25 PM EST

    Greg Smith Rockets

    It looked really bad when it happened. Houston’s Greg Smith went up to contest a Carmelo Anthony shot in the first quarter Thursday and when he came down his right knee buckled. He went to the ground and had to be helped off the court. The early report is an LCL sprain, however we will…

  15. The Extra Pass: 10 teams, 10 observations, plus Tuesday recaps

    Nov 6, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Chuck Hayes, Paul Millsap

    Let’s zip around the league with ten observations for ten teams: Atlanta: I’m digging the former Jazz men. Paul Millsap is already getting along famously with Al Horford, but the smart movement off the ball by flex-bred wingmen Kyle Korver and DeMarre Carroll is keeping defenses off guard. This is a really unselfish offense already,…

  16. Rockets’ Marcus Camby out weeks with torn plantar fascia

    Oct 9, 2013, 10:45 AM EST

    Marcus Camby

    Sadly, it wouldn’t feel like an NBA season without a Marcus Camby injury report. The veteran big man is now in Houston to back up Dwight Howard, but he will not be able to do that for at least a couple weeks — and more likely a couple months — due to a torn plantar…

  17. McHale plans to get Camby plenty of rest this season

    Sep 10, 2013, 10:55 AM EST

    New York Knicks center Camby walks off the court after their NBA basketball game against the Utah Jazz in Salt Lake City

    When he’s on the court, Marcus Camby can still help a team, even at age 39. He is long, is smart about defending the rim and you have to respect his midrange jumper as a defender. The key is “when he’s on the court.” Camby has an injury list longer than the list of bad…

  18. Michael Carter-Williams impresses in Summer League debut with Sixers

    Jul 7, 2013, 12:30 PM EST

    NBA Draft Basketball

    The NBA’s Summer League tipped off in Orlando on Sunday, where it will be held through July 12. Once that’s complete, the event shifts to a larger-scale operation in Las Vegas for 10 days from the 12th through the 22nd. It’s our first chance to see this year’s draft picks in action, and the player…

  19. Dwight Howard signing just the beginning for Rockets

    Jul 5, 2013, 6:37 PM EST

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers

    Darryl Morey has done the hardest job, getting Dwight Howard to sign with the Rockets. Now the Houston general manager has even more moves ahead. The Rockets don’t have cap room to give Howard a max contract, so Morey must either convince Howard to take less money, arrange a sign-and-trade with the Lakers or change…

  20. Rockets don’t have enough cap room to give Dwight Howard a max contract

    Jul 5, 2013, 7:12 AM EST

    Houston Rockets Patrick Beverly attempts to steal the ball from Los Angeles Lakers Dwight Howard during their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    The Rockets do not have enough cap room to give Dwight Howard a max contract. They could waive all four of their players with fully unguaranteed contracts – Greg Smith, Patrick Beverley,Tim Ohlbrecht and James Anderson – and they still wouldn’t have enough cap room. If Howard chooses Houston, perhaps as early as today, the…

  21. Report: Rockets trying to land Dwight Howard AND Josh Smith

    Jul 3, 2013, 12:01 AM EST

    Josh Smith, Dwight Howard

    Dwight Howard wants the Rockets to add a third star, and Josh Smith is Houston’s backup plan to Howard. It was only a matter of time until these plans merged. Sam Amick of USA Today: According to two people with knowledge of the situation, the Rockets’ Monday meeting with free agent forward Josh Smith in…

  22. Rockets play much better, but Thunder escape with the win for a 2-0 series lead

    Apr 24, 2013, 11:05 PM EST

    Houston Rockets guard Patrick Beverly drives against Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook in the second half of their Game 2 NBA Playoffs basketball game in Oklahoma City.

    After dropping Game 1 of their first round playoff series to the top seeded Thunder by 29 points, there weren’t many who believed the Rockets would be able to compete for more than short stretches the rest of the series. But thanks to some key adjustments, Houston gave the Thunder all they could handle in…

  23. Greg Smith throws down on Tiago Splitter (VIDEO)

    Mar 25, 2013, 9:15 AM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Houston Rockets

    Tiago Splitter ends up on the wrong end of a lot of dunks. Which means he’s a guy defending the rim who doesn’t shirk away from his duties. That’s admirable. But he still gets dunked on a lot, which is what happened with Greg Smith on Sunday. The Rockets’ Smith was open at the elbow to…

  24. The Extra Pass: Analyzing the Kings-Rockets Trade

    Feb 21, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Sacramento Kings v Boston Celtics

    The Extra Pass is a column that’s designed to give you a better look at a theme, team, player or scheme. Today, we examine the trade between the Kings and the Rockets. How often does a team save money and improve on the court in a trade? That’s essentially what the Sacramento Kings did when they…

  25. Are the Rockets in the market for Josh Smith? Maybe not quite yet.

    Feb 14, 2013, 5:10 PM EST

    Atlanta Hawks Josh Smith reacts during the final moments of the fourth quarter of Game 6 of their NBA Eastern Conference playoff basketball series against the Boston Celtics in Boston

    Trade speculation surrounding Josh Smith is in full swing. The Brooklyn Nets and San Antonio Spurs have been reported as potential landing spots, but there may not be a more attractive trading partner for the Hawks given their rebuilding process than the Houston Rockets. Despite lacking a “big name” who can be moved, Houston has…
