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

    Jan 23, 2013, 9:20 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Dec 31, 2012, 10:53 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Dec 30, 2012, 6:30 PM EDT

    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…

  4. NBA season preview: New Orleans Hornets

    Oct 26, 2012, 10:40 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Oct 24, 2012, 4:45 PM EDT

    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…

  6. Notes from Sunday’s NBA preseason games

    Oct 8, 2012, 2:46 AM EDT

    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…

  7. NBA Preview: Orlando Magic

    Oct 1, 2012, 8:23 PM EDT

    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…

  8. Could Gustavo Ayon ditch Orlando for Spain eventually?

    Sep 9, 2012, 6:55 AM EDT

    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…

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

    Aug 13, 2012, 3:34 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Jul 19, 2012, 1:56 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Jul 11, 2012, 9:05 PM EDT

    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…

  12. 50 Observations about NBA Free Agency

    Jul 9, 2012, 12:21 PM EDT

    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…

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

    Jul 8, 2012, 3:07 PM EDT

    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…

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

    May 22, 2012, 3:56 PM EDT

    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…

  15. Video: Wild ending in New Orleans win over Golden State

    Apr 25, 2012, 8:44 AM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets

    When you pay good money for an NBA ticket, you can only hope the game ends with a dramatic… goaltending call? That’s what happened to Warriors fans. With the game inside 8 seconds left and tied 81-81, Golden State’s Charles Jenkins‘ drove the lane and put up a layup that Gustavo Ayon cleanly blocked. The…

  16. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Jazz in, Clippers fall to Hawks

    Apr 25, 2012, 7:59 AM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    What you missed while thinking that if this cow tells the others what is going on at McDonald’s there is going to be a revolt…. Jazz 100, Suns 87: And the Jazz are in the playoffs while the Suns can start worrying about where Steve Nash will play next season. Our man Brett Pollakoff broke…

  17. Report: Hornets taking Chris Kaman off trade market

    Feb 3, 2012, 5:19 PM EDT

    Chris Kaman

    Not sure what they were expecting, but what the New Orleans Hornets were offered for center Chris Kaman didn’t impress them, so they are taking him off the trade market. That means he will be reinstated on the Hornets active roster, reports Chris Broussard at ESPN. The league-owned Hornets deactivated Kaman last week and told…
