  1. Report: Pacers to match $58 million max offer to Hibbert

    Jul 9, 2012, 3:07 PM EDT

    Roy Hibbert

    Roy Hibbert will remain an Indiana Pacer. It was the only move the Pacers could really make. The Portland Trail Blazers agreed to offer Roy Hibbert a max extension — four years, $58 million — on July 11. Indiana was torn as to whether or not to match the offer, but they have decided to…

  2. 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…

  3. Pacers need a two guard, targeting O.J. Mayo, Courtney Lee

    Jul 6, 2012, 1:41 PM EDT

    O.J. Mayo, Andrew Bynum

    While the Pacers front office is grappling with the big question — literally — of whether to match the Trail Blazers max offer for center Roy Hibbert, they are dealing with their other needs as well. Specifically, they need to step up at the two guard. More accurately, they need to bring in a shooting…

  5. George Hill agrees to five-year deal to stay with Pacers

    Jul 2, 2012, 1:58 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers' Hill dribbles against Miami Heat's Chalmers during their NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoff in Indianapolis

    When you have a good young team, keep them together. That is what is going on in Indiana, where along those lines they have agreed to terms with George Hill on a new five-year deal, tweets Mike Wells of the Indy Star. Terms of the deal are not yet known. So we can wait to…

  6. Report: Anthony Davis severely sprains ankle, out of Olympics

    Jul 2, 2012, 1:09 PM EDT

    Draft Hornets Basketball

    And Team USA loses another potential big man for the roster. Recent No. 1 pick Anthony Davis severely sprained his ankle in a workout for the Hornets, which leaves him very unlikely to be ready when USA Basketball opens training camp Friday (July 6) in Las Vegas and he is now out for the games,…

  7. The Inbounds: Free Agency and the Magical Musical Chairs

    Jul 2, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    Suns guard Nash looks to drive on Mavericks center Mahinmi during their NBA basketball game in Dallas, Texas

    Welcome to The Inbounds, touching on a big idea of the day. It could be news, it could be history, it could be a tangent, it could be love. OK, it’s probably not love. Enjoy.  If the Pacers don’t match Hibbert’s offer, then Batum could go to Minnesota. If the Bulls don’t match Asik’s offer,…

  8. Top 10 most interesting NBA free agents to watch

    Jul 2, 2012, 9:34 AM EDT

    Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    Lockout? You mean those months last year we didn’t have basketball as owners fought to put constraints on themselves because when it comes time to bid for free agents they don’t trust themselves to be rational? What lockout? Less than 48 hours into the 2012 summer free agent frenzy owner rationality has gone the way…

  9. Free Agency Rundown 7.1.12: The movers, they are a shaking

  10. Report: Trail Blazers offer Roy Hibbert max deal. Expect Pacers to match.

    Jul 1, 2012, 11:26 AM EDT

    Roy Hibbert

    True NBA big men are hard to find. And the simple economic theory of supply and demand applies. Roy Hibbert is a 25-year-old All-Star true NBA center who averaged 12.8 points and 8.8 rebounds a game, but showed his real value in the playoffs when his length really bothered Dwyane Wade and LeBron James on…

  12. As expected, Morway out, Pritchard to be in as Pacers GM

    Jun 26, 2012, 6:08 PM EDT

    pacerslogo

    What was long rumored and expected is now official. David Morway has resigned as the general manager of the Indiana Pacers and is leaving the organization, the team announced Tuesday. This is one of those “resign or we will can you” resignations, just so we’re clear. This clears the way for Kevin Pritchard, the former…

  13. Larry Bird is leaving Indiana Pacers, Walsh to step in

    Former NBA player Bird attends premiere of Magic Bird in New York

    It had long been the thought around the league that this was Larry Bird’s last year as president of the Pacers. Bird denied it. Directly. More than once. But in the end, he was ready to leave the Pacers. Bird is stepping down as team president, reports the Indy Star. Bird is “100 percent sure” he…

  14. You can go home again: Donnie Walsh hired by Pacers

    Jun 26, 2012, 2:21 AM EDT

    Donnie Walsh

    Donnie Walsh was the long-time CEO of the Indiana Pacers who took a few years off to bail the New York Knicks out of their Isiah Thomas hole. They rewarded him for that by shoving him aside (over differences about the Carmelo Anthony deal), stripping him of his power and making him a consultant. Now,…

  15. The sweet validation of one Shane Courtney Battier

    Jun 24, 2012, 11:30 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game One

    I asked a group of friends recently what the first thing they think of when they hear the name Shane Battier. Three people immediately said “Dukie.” Two people said “Defense.” And one person said “Smart.” You can throw another one on there, now. NBA Champion. Battier obtained another championship to go with his high school…

  16. Warriors’ latest small forward star target: Luol Deng

    Jun 23, 2012, 4:00 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls' Deng goes to the basket against the Miami Heat during second half of their NBA basketball game in Chicago

    Andre Iguodala. Danny Granger. Rudy Gay. The Warriors have been chasing a small forward for weeks trying to get a hold on an All-Star upgrade at that position. You can recognize what they’re going for. Stephen Curry runs the show. The star small forward anchors the perimeter defense, Andrew Bogut handles the defensive load down…

  17. Which teams could crash the Thunder/Heat finals next year?

    Jun 22, 2012, 1:47 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat - Game Five

    These finals didn’t feel like a one-time thing. One year from now the Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder could well be back on the NBA’s biggest stage. This is a budding rivalry. Between LeBron James and Kevin Durant. Between the flashy East Coast city and the solid Midwestern city. Miami’s stars are in their…

  20. Report: Larry Bird no longer has a relationship with GM David Morway

    Jun 10, 2012, 11:31 AM EDT

    Former NBA player Bird attends premiere of Magic Bird in New York

    When Larry Bird was retained as President of Basketball Operations for the Pacers, there was an interesting wrinkle. Kevin Pritchard, not longer-tenured David Morway, was tapped for the GM position under Bird. It was thought that was because Morway, having interviewed for vacant positions around the league, was simply headed elsewhere. Turns out that’s true,…

  21. Celtics-Heat Game 7: A fade from green to black

    Jun 10, 2012, 3:38 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics - Game Four

    It’s possible, however remotely, that Miami’s 101-88 win in Game 7 wasn’t the end of the Big 3 era in Boston. It’s not inconceivable that Danny Ainge and Doc Rivers could elect for one more ride. But it doesn’t feel like it. It doesn’t feel like it because of how close this team came to…

  22. NBA Draft Profile: Damian Lillard

    Jun 8, 2012, 2:35 PM EDT

    Damian Lillard, Julian Demalleville

    Nobody is moving up the draft board like Damian Lillard. You didn’t see him unless you were a Weber State fan (and we know you’re not), but most teams now have him ranked as the best point guard in the draft — better than UNC’s Kendall Marshall, better than Kentucky’s Marquis Teague, better than all…

  23. Report: Dallas may make futile run to get Roy Hibbert

    Jun 4, 2012, 4:44 PM EDT

    Roy Hibbert

    Dallas has apparently learned a valuable lesson — having a big shot-blocking center in the paint is very important if you are into the whole “winning a title” thing. They missed Tyson Chandler, so they may make a run at Pacers center free agent Roy Hibbert. Even though they will not get him. This from…

  24. Report: Warriors targeting Iguodala, Gay, Granger, unicorns, hippogriffs

    Jun 2, 2012, 2:00 PM EDT

    Warriors logo

    The Warriors at this point might as well put up a big neon sign outside their offices that read “TRADE MARKET FLEA SALE TODAY!” Ever since they went into tank mode, they have made it known that their players are available for trade and that they want a small forward in return. And by landing…
