  1. Joe Dumars hopes Josh Smith-Greg Monroe-Andre Drummond frontcourt can take cues from Hawks and Grizzlies

    Aug 7, 2013, 6:12 PM EDT

    Josh Smith, Andre Drummond

    Which team has the best starting frontcourt in the NBA? Depending on how you value the top player compared to the depth of the trio, there are several contenders including: Nets (Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Brook Lopez) Bulls (Luol Deng, Carlos Boozer, Joakim Noah) Nuggets (Danilo Gallinari, Kenneth Faried, JaVale McGee) Warriors (Andre Iguodala, David…

  2. Heat focused on Oden’s rehab, then will think basketball

    Aug 7, 2013, 4:50 PM EDT

    Greg Oden

    The end goal, obviously, is basketball — to have Greg Oden on the court come the playoffs to put a body on Roy Hibbert and Joakim Noah. But to reach that goal, the Heat are thinking smaller steps that have nothing to do with being on the court. Oden has officially signed his two-year deal…

  3. Ten NBA must-watch games this season

    Aug 6, 2013, 7:24 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    The NBA schedule is out and it’s a little like Christmas Day (unless you’re a beat reporter, then it’s explain to your wife how much you’ll be gone day, which is a lot less fun). Today is the day you can really start to taste the matchups that are coming. There are more good storylines…

  4. Report: Sixers’ schedule second interviews with Jay Larranaga, three others in search for new head coach

    Aug 5, 2013, 5:23 PM EDT

    jay larranaga

    The Philadelphia 76ers are coming closer to hiring a head coach for next season, though the candidates being considered aren’t exactly household names. New general manager is bringing four NBA assistants in for a second round of interviews, according to Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski, all of which are without prior NBA head coaching experience. The…

  5. Is Greg Oden going to make a difference in Miami? The only answer is “I don’t know.”

    Aug 3, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    greg_oden

    The last time Greg Oden stepped on an NBA court to take part in a game it was Dec. 5, 2009. That would be 1,337 days ago. Or, 191 weeks, if you prefer. And there is a good chance you will not see Oden at the start of next season either — he said he…

  6. Luis Scola accepts role, willing to come off Pacers bench

    Aug 2, 2013, 11:45 AM EDT

    scola-suns

    Luis Scola has reached the “I just want to win” phase of his career. Scola was shipped from the rebuilding Phoenix Suns to the contending Indiana Pacers this summer and will be part of a much deeper bench for the Pacers. Scola (like everybody) would love more time on the court but said he is…

  7. Pacers’ Chris Copeland has knee scoped, out 6-8 weeks

    Aug 2, 2013, 11:30 AM EDT

    Chrst Copeland

    Indiana made a smart move in signing former Knick Chris Copeland to come off their bench as a stretch four next season. Now they may not have him at the start of camp as he comes back from knee surgery. Copeland had “arthroscopic surgery on his left knee to remove a loose body” the Pacers…

  8. Roy Hibbert works out wearing Google Glass (VIDEO)

    Aug 2, 2013, 4:05 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game Five

    If you ever wondered what Roy Hibbert sees when he is working out — or when dunking a basketball — there you go. Hibbert worked out wearing Google Glass, which certainly went better than Victor Oladipo‘s attempt to wear them to the NBA Draft. It’s interesting. No sure about cool, but interesting. Hat tip The Basketball…

  9. Paul George, Kyrie Irving excited for John Wall and his new $80 million contract

    Jul 31, 2013, 11:21 PM EDT

    wall irving

    The Wizards locked up John Wall with a five-year contract extension worth $80 million on Wednesday, and the news excited a couple of other big-time NBA players who will be due for similar extensions in the very near future. Paul George of the Indiana Pacers started things on Twitter, when he sent out a message…

  10. USA Basketball wants Roy Hibbert, but probably can’t have him

    Jul 31, 2013, 12:36 PM EDT

    Pacers' Hibbert looks down court during Game 6 of their NBA Eastern Conference Final basketball playoff series against the Heat in Indianapolis

    When USA Basketball held its four-day mini-camp in Las Vegas last week, Roy Hibbert was a noticeable omission from the roster. There’s a reason, of course, and it has nothing to do with Hibbert’s level of talent or ability to commit to the program. The fact that he’s played for another country in the past,…

  11. Carmelo Anthony dodges talk of his plans next summer

    Jul 31, 2013, 10:26 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v New York Knicks - Game Five

    Carmelo Anthony can opt out of his contract next summer and he’s expected to do just that to lock down the security of a new longer deal — and he doesn’t really want to talk about it. He’ll talk about how he likes the offseason moves his Knicks made — picking up Andrea Bargnani and…

  12. Lance Stephenson says he’d have no problem coming off the bench for the Pacers next season

    Jul 30, 2013, 11:02 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Indiana Pacers - Game Six

    Lance Stephenson started all 19 playoff games for the Pacers last season during a run that got them to within one game of advancing to the NBA Finals. Indiana reloaded in the offseason with a couple of nice free agent acquisitions, however, and with Danny Granger returning from injury, Stephenson may be better suited as…

  13. Chalmers knows East going to be a lot tougher this season

    Jul 30, 2013, 1:20 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 6

    The Indiana Pacers get Danny Granger back and added a lot of depth. The Chicago Bulls get former NBA MVP Derrick Rose back. The Brooklyn Nets added Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce, plus some depth. The New York Knicks added Metta World Peace and will have Iman Shumpert a full season. Miami has won the…

  14. NBA post free agency Power Rankings: Who is closing in on Miami?

    Jul 29, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers' Paul and Griffin wait for play to resume as the Clippers trail the San Antonio Spurs during the second half of an NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    This summer saw Dwight Howard find a new home, the Clippers and Pacers add depth, and a few other teams making bold moves to get better (or, in some cases, worse intentionally). So how did all this impact the PBT Power Rankings? Glad you asked. Here is where things stand this summer (the number in…

  15. Suns ‘optimistic’ that Channing Frye will be playing for them next season

    Jul 28, 2013, 2:59 PM EDT

    channing frye suns

    Channing Frye was diagnosed with an enlarged heart condition that kept him out of basketball entirely for all of last season. There was an extended period of time where Frye couldn’t even do any heavy cardio exercise just to stay in shape, and his return to the court was uncertain, at best. As the season…

  16. Paul George says he, Danny Granger can play together just fine

    Jul 27, 2013, 9:29 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Indiana Pacers - Game One

    When word came down Saturday that the trade bringing Luis Scola to the Pacers had gone final I tweeted that I really liked the Pacers lineup — they had maybe the best starting five in the NBA last year, they will now add Danny Granger to that and bring Lance Stephenson, C.J. Watson, Scola and…

  17. Suns trade Luis Scola to the Pacers for Gerald Green, 2014 first round pick

    Jul 27, 2013, 2:56 PM EDT

    UPDATE 2:48 p.m.: Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports the deal has been agreed to, and will send Gerald Green, Miles Plumlee, and a lottery protected 2014 first round draft pick to Phoenix in exchange for Luis Scola. “The trade is consistent with our stated plan to continue to acquire young assets,” said Suns President of…

  18. First guess at who makes Team USA for 2014 World Championships

    Jul 27, 2013, 12:31 PM EDT

    USA Basketball Men's National Team Blue And White Game

    The FIBA World Cup – the basketball World Championships coming to Spain next summer — don’t play as big in the United States as the Olympics. It can get overlooked… unless Team USA loses, then newspaper columnists who hadn’t given the thing a sideways glance will pontificate on how this is some kind of disaster.…

  19. Kyrie Irving, Anthony Davis shine in USA Basketball showcase

    Jul 26, 2013, 1:08 AM EDT

    USA Basketball Men's National Team Blue And White Game

    LAS VEGAS – The White team beat the Blue team 128-106 in the USA Basketball intra-squad showcase that put a bow on a four-day mini-camp held in Las Vegas this week, but the event was about anything but this game’s final score. The powers that be were looking for mostly intangibles from players in terms…

  20. George Hill explains reason for backing out of USA Basketball mini-camp

    Jul 25, 2013, 5:01 PM EDT

    George Hill

    LAS VEGAS – George Hill was a late scratch for this week’s USA Basketball mini-camp in las Vegas, with the given reason at the time being listed only as a “scheduling conflict.” That didn’t seem to be a great excuse considering the late date (July 21) that the organization received word that Hill wouldn’t be…

  21. Rosters set for Thursday’s USA Basketball intra-squad showcase

    Jul 25, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Damian Lillard, Harrison Barnes

    LAS VEGAS — USA Basketball will wrap up its four-day mini-camp on Thursday with an intra-squad showcase that will be played in front of fans at the Thomas and Mack Center on the campus of UNLV, and televised nationally on NBA TV. The rosters have been set for what is essentially an All-Star game where the…

  22. Carmelo Anthony on joining the Lakers: “I doubt it.”

    Jul 24, 2013, 1:31 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v New York Knicks - Game Five

      Carmelo Anthony — Don’t Count On Me Joining the Lakers – Watch More Celebrity Videos or Subscribe   Ahh, the TMZ ambush interview. Not exactly the zenith of American journalism, but you do catch people without their publicist having scripted the response. TMZ ambushed Carmelo Anthony in Los Angeles and asked him about maybe…

  23. Paul George says he has no plans to leave Indiana. Sorry Lakers fans.

    Jul 23, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Indiana Pacers - Game One

    Among the many and sometimes (often?) delusional dreams that Lakers fans have about the free agency rebuild the team will attempt in the summer of 2014 is this one: Bringing Paul George back to his Los Angeles roots. If the Pacers and George do not come to terms on a contract extension before Oct. 30…

  24. Paul George says Larry Bird can still shoot the rock

    Larry Bird was the ultimate gym rat player. He simply seemed like he could knock down any shot — open or contested, he could create just enough space to get a look and he didn’t need much. They guy could just shoot. Still can, apparently. Nima Zarrabi of SLAM caught up with Indiana’s Paul George…

  25. George Hill pulls out of Team USA minicamp due to “scheduling conflict”

    Jul 22, 2013, 1:07 AM EDT

    George Hill

    Indiana point guard George Hill got an invite to the USA basketball minicamp in Las Vegas this week, where Mike Krzyzewski and crew are getting a look at 28 of the best young players in the NBA. Guys that could be part of Team USA in the future. But Hill has begged out of it…
