  1. FIBA Americas Tournament became Renaldo Balkman show on Friday

    Puerto Rico's Balkman goes for a basket against Brazil's Giovannoni during their FIBA Americas Championship basketball game in Caracas

    The 2013 FIBA Americas tournament tipped off on Friday in Caracas, Venezuela, with teams from North, South and Central America attempting to move one step closer to playing in the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. It’s still a bit early to be talking about that since the tournament won’t end until September 11, but…

  2. FIBA Americas tournament tips off today

    The 2013 FIBA Americas Championship tournament begins in beautiful Caracas, Venezuela, on Friday morning. This is actually the fourth FIBA tournament of the year — following Asia (where Hamed Haddadi was MVP), Oceania (which was just Australia vs. New Zealand a couple of times) and Africa (where Nigeria was just upset despite featuring four players…

    Team USA had a mini-camp workout for some younger players this summer, but that was basically it for the senior men’s team. USA Basketball largely gets to take the summer off and gear up for the World Championships in Spain next summer. But much of the rest of the world is going at it in…

  4. Hawks draft pick Lucas Nogueira to play in Spain next season

    Aug 12, 2013, 6:46 PM EST

    nogueira hawks

    It was always a possibility that the player the Hawks selected with the 16th overall pick in this year’s draft, Lucas Nogueira, would spend a season developing overseas, and in fact, he told us as much back in June at adidas Eurocamp. Given his strong showing at Summer League in Las Vegas, however, along with the…

  5. Hawks claim Gustavo Ayon off waivers

    Jul 28, 2013, 9:00 PM EST

    ayon bucks

    The Bucks waived Gustavo Ayon a few days ago for reasons unknown, but even a big man with the most basic of skill sets on not much more than a minimum salary deal won’t last on the open market for very long. Ayon didn’t end up hitting the open market, and was claimed off waivers by the…

  6. Bucks waive big man Gustavo Ayon

    Jul 25, 2013, 11:06 PM EST

    ayon bucks

    There was a time, not that long ago, when the Bucks were of the belief that they should retain big man Gustavo Ayon for next season. Back in June, they reportedly decided to pick up his $1.5 million option. A month later, however, before the contract was set to become fully guaranteed, the team has…

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points more than we like to debate In-n-Out vs. Five Guys (it’s In-n-Out, obviously)…. •…

  8. As expected, Bucks pick up option on Gustavo Ayon

    Jun 24, 2013, 3:52 PM EST

    MEXICO-MIGRATION-AYON

    Big man Gustavo Ayon came over to the Milwaukee Bucks as part of the J.J. Redick deal and he played a limited role, playing in just a dozen games for the Bucks. But he looked pretty good in that limited time — he rebounded at a higher rate than he had all through his career…

  9. Orlando Magic guard J.J. Redick traded to the Milwaukee Bucks

    Feb 21, 2013, 3:42 PM EST

    Bobcats Magic Basketball

    There were plenty of rumblings about Atlanta Hawks forward Josh Smith going to Milwaukee in a blockbuster three-team deal with Orlando, but that trade died when Atlanta reportedly pulled out of the deal. That trade falling apart didn’t deter the Bucks from acquiring a piece to help them in their playoff push, however. Adrian Wojnarowski…

  11. Thaddeus Young leaves game with hamstring injury (VIDEO)

    Feb 4, 2013, 9:27 PM EST

    Thaddeus Young

    Monday night was an easy win for the Sixers — they raced out to a 22-6 lead and really the rest of the game was pretty sloppy and ugly — but it came with a price for Philly: They lost Thaddeus Young to a hamstring injury. You can see what happened in the video above…

  12. The Extra Pass: Assessing Trade Value (Southwest Division)

    Jan 23, 2013, 9:20 AM EST

    Memphis Grizzlies v Phoenix Suns

    The Extra Pass is a new daily column that’s designed to give you a better look at a theme, team, player or scheme. We’ve looked at the Northwest Division and Pacific Division, so let’s finish up the Western Conference with the Southwest Division. *** San Antonio Spurs: 33-11, 1st in Southwest Division, $988,000 short of tax…

  13. Report: Celtics, Mavericks among four teams trying to work Cousins trade

    Dec 31, 2012, 10:53 AM EST

    DeMarcus Cousins, Harrions Barnes

    Know this — the scenario about to be laid out tells you what DeMarcus Cousins and his people are thinking and hoping for. What it does not do is tell you the reality of the situation. Not in the least. The reality here is a complex dynamic that starts with Cousins firing his long-time agent…

  14. NBA issues flopping warnings to Royal Ivey, Gustavo Ayon and Tony Parker

    Dec 30, 2012, 6:30 PM EST

    Blake Griffin, Tony Parker, flop

    Tony Parker? Flop? Well, I never! The NBA has officially warned Parker, Royal Ivey and Gustavo Ayon today for violating the anti-flopping policy established this season. While this is solely a warning for all three players, if they’re accused of violating the policy again, they will be subject to a $5,000 dollar fine. Parker’s flop…

  15. NBA season preview: New Orleans Hornets

    Oct 26, 2012, 10:40 AM EST

    New Orleans Hornets v Houston Rockets

    Last Season: The player the franchise had built itself around, Chris Paul, decided he wanted out before last season began. He did so in a far less-aggravating way than his superstar counterparts (we’re looking at you, Mr. Anthony and Mr. Howard), but he did it just the same. Since the key piece the Hornets received in…

  16. Orlando center Gustavo Ayon to miss at least two weeks

    Oct 24, 2012, 4:45 PM EST

    Amir Johnson,  Gustavo Ayon

    The losses just keep piling up for the Magic, and the season hasn’t even started yet. It was bad enough having to fire Stan Van Gundy, who is undoubtedly one of the game’s best strategic minds, because of some overblown drama caused by a petulant star. It was even worse having to trade Dwight Howard…

  17. Notes from Sunday’s NBA preseason games

    Oct 8, 2012, 2:46 AM EST

    Golden State Warriors v Los Angeles Lakers

    It doesn’t matter who won or lost, so while the scores are listed below just consider those just a little headline so you know who we are talking about. What we want to know in preseason is who stood out — like Eric Bledsoe and Ty Lawson did in the Clippers/Nuggets game Saturday in Las…

  18. NBA Preview: Orlando Magic

    Oct 1, 2012, 8:23 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Indiana Pacers - Game Five

    Last season: Oh, what a tangled web we weave… The Magic won 37 games (to 29 losses) last season because for a stretch in the first half of the season they were one of the top-five teams in the NBA. Dwight Howard was putting up his usual MVP numbers (well, not last season next to…

  19. Could Gustavo Ayon ditch Orlando for Spain eventually?

    Sep 9, 2012, 6:55 AM EST

    Amir Johnson,  Gustavo Ayon

    Dwight Howard is gone and Gustavo Ayon is in for Orlando. For now. Ayon isn’t near the same level but he played well as a rookie for the New Orleans Hornets last year, giving them an efficient 5.9 points and 4.9 rebounds a game, with an above-average PER of 16.7. That’s an impressive start. He…

  20. Report: Jazz had trade talks about getting Ryan Anderson

    Aug 13, 2012, 3:34 PM EST

    Ryan Anderson, Tyrus Thomas

    Ryan Anderson would have been a good fit in the Utah Jazz’s offense — they needed someone who could knock down the three and stretch the floor, and that is what Anderson does best. They wanted him. But the price was too steep — Paul Millsap. That according to a new report from Brian Smith…

  21. Hornets, Magic to play preseason game in Mexico City

    Jul 19, 2012, 1:56 PM EST

    reforma-avenue Mexico City

    NBA fans in Mexico City are going to get to see a hot young team in the New Orleans Hornets and… whatever is going to be left on the Magic roster by the time training camp opens. The league has announced an Oct. 7 preseason game between New Orleans and Orlando in the new Mexico…

  22. Welcome to NBA signing day tracker: Griffin, Nash, more ink deals

    Jul 11, 2012, 9:05 PM EST

    Blake Griffin arrives for a news conference announcing the players selected for the 2012 U.S. Olympic men's basketball team in Las Vegas

    It’s official, Steve Nash is a Los Angeles Laker. And Blake Griffin is a very rich Clipper. All the deals that have been reported in the past 10 days — such as Deron Williams re-signing with the Nets — go from “agreement reached” to “pen on paper” today. The league has a 10-day moratorium on…

  23. 50 Observations about NBA Free Agency

    Jul 9, 2012, 12:21 PM EST

    New Jersey Nets v Atlanta Hawks

    From time to time, I drop random observations because it’s too long for a tweet and too short for a full post. Also because it allows me to crack jokes, which is really the reason I’m here. That and the money. Mostly the money. Anyway, it’s been a crazy week of free agency. Here are…

  24. Report: Hornets in talks for sign-and-trade for Ryan Anderson

    Jul 8, 2012, 3:07 PM EST

    Ryan Anderson

    This is unexpected. Yahoo Sports reports that restricted free agent Ryan Anderson will not re-sign with the Magic and will be moved in a sign-and-trade. Shortly thereafter, the Orlando Sentinel reported that the Hornets are in talks with the Magic for a sign-and-trade of the stretch four. The news comes as a shocker with huge…

  25. Point guards Irving, Rubio lead NBA All-Rookie team

    May 22, 2012, 3:56 PM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers rookie Kyrie Irving reacts after a turnover during the second quarter of the Cavaliers NBA basketball game against the Miami Heat in Cleveland

    The NBA is evolving into more of a point-guard league — if you can’t touch a quick ball handler on the perimeter they are going to carve up any defense. With the rules enforced as they are, Tony Parker can’t guard Tony Parker. So no shock that the two guys on top of the NBA…
