  1. Report from Europe says Darko Milicic may sign with Boston

    Sep 20, 2012, 8:36 AM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Sacramento Kings

    Darko Milicic a Celtic? Stranger things have happened. Not many, but the fact you know who Snooki is proves anything is possible. We know that Milicic has been looking for an NBA job since being amnestied by the Timberwolves this summer, but is one of the veterans finding the market tight. He had returned to…

  2. NBA Season Preview: Brooklyn Nets

    Sep 20, 2012, 8:00 AM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v Atlanta Hawks

    Last Season: I want you to imagine the most you’ve ever vomited. Like, literally, the greatest single bout of nauseated vomiting you’ve ever gone through. I want you to think about what you ate, what it smelled like, that cold, hard porcelain  or unfeeling trash can that embraced you after the day-old shellfish or that…

  3. NBA Season Preview: Philadelphia 76ers

    Sep 17, 2012, 12:21 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers introduce Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson

    Today begins PBT’s team-by-team season preview, going through all 30 squads. We are starting in the deep Atlantic Division that could well send four teams to the playoffs, and we will move West from there. First up, your Philadelphia 76ers. Last season: They were a slightly better than .500 team (35-31) that played great defense…

  4. Where in the world will Josh Howard play next?

    Sep 17, 2012, 9:42 AM EDT

    Jazz forward Howard tries to get position on Spurs forward Leonard during their NBA basketball game in San Antonio, Texas

    Matt Barnes got inked but we still have a long list of veteran players out there waiting to sign a deal — Kenyon Martin, Mickael Pietrus, Louis Amundson, Leandro Barbosa, Anthony Tolliver, Darko Milicic. Josh Howard can be added to that list, also. Once a 19.9 points per game scorer for the Mavericks, last season…

  5. Kenyon Martin has suitors but still wants more than minimum

    Sep 14, 2012, 8:40 AM EDT

    Kenyon Martin

    The phone of Kenyon Martin’s agent is ringing — teams are interested in him. But the offers are all the same — veteran minimum. And for a veteran who played well at times for the Clippers last season (8.9 points and 6.3 rebounds a game), he doesn’t want to play for the minimum anymore. Marc…

  6. Roy Hibbert’s life of celebrities, eating chicken and waffles

    Sep 13, 2012, 1:19 PM EDT

    Roy Hibbert

    Pretty much every NBA player has stories of wild nights out on the town. The kind of nights on the town that belong in a movie. Some players have a lot of those nights. They just don’t talk publically about them. But Roy Hibbert did. Hibbert was on the NBA Hang Time podcast with comedian/writer…

  7. Kobe spent Wednesday working on homelessness in L.A.

    Sep 12, 2012, 11:20 PM EDT

    NBA basketball player Bryant of the U.S. reacts after missing a point during a charity game in Shanghai

    Kobe Bryant is a guy not exactly known for sympathy on the basketball court. On the NBA.com Hang Time podcast this week Roy Hibbert talks about how Kobe broke his nose at a game in Los Angeles, and at the All Star Game Hibbert talked to him expecting some sympathy. Young, naïve Roy Hibbert. But…

  8. Report: Mavericks, Rockets to make sure Thunder pay for Harden

    Sep 12, 2012, 11:54 AM EDT

    james-harden

    When Oklahoma City GM Sam Presti was talking James Harden’s contract recently, he sounded a lot like your boss before he started talking about everyone taking furlough days — “we have some inherent challenges that we face as an organization” and that kind of thing. Which is because every dollar they can get Harden to…

  9. Report: Nets, Lakers, Suns talking to Leandro Barbosa

    Sep 11, 2012, 10:18 PM EDT

    Leandro Barbosa, Indiana Pacers

    Anybody looking for a backup point guard? Leandro Barbosa is still on the market. He’s one of those guys who thinks he deserves more but is likely only going to see veteran minimum offers. Welcome to the new CBA. But some teams are talking to him, the Brazilian guard told UOL Esporte, a publication in…

  10. Reggie Miller says he would consider Pacers front office job

    Sep 11, 2012, 11:32 AM EDT

    Basketball Hall of Fame Enshrinement Ceremony

    I think I can speak for all Pacers fans who have listened to Reggie Miller analyze a basketball game on television when they say, “NOOOOOOO” to this idea. But it is still out there. While speaking with Mike Wells of the Indy Star last weekend at the Hall of Fame (where Miller was inducted), the…

  11. Video: Reggie Miller thanks sister, admits he pushed off on Greg Anthony as he enters Hall of Fame

    Sep 8, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Reggie Cheryl Miller

    Reggie Miller gave a super speech upon his induction to the Naismith Hall of Fame Friday night. He was warm, funny, self-deprecating, and yet still so confident in his own abilities and impishly proud of his constant needling. He told stories about being abused by Michael Jordan and what the game has meant to him.…

  12. The Inbounds: Reggie Miller was the thorn you loved or hated watching stick

    Sep 6, 2012, 5:20 PM EDT

    reggie-miller

    There’s a freaking movie about how Reggie Miller made life hell for the Knicks. That’s how legendary that rivalry was. But it wasn’t just the moments, the trash talk, the shots or the points. To be a truly worthy hero, or a villain, you have to be good enough for the damage inflicted to seem…

  13. Josh Harrellson gets one-week tryout with Heat before camp

    Sep 4, 2012, 9:38 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v New York Knicks

    Josh Harrellson is getting his chance. It’s in his hands now. Yesterday we told you about Harrellson tweeting he was headed to Miami where he would hopefully be “for 9 months.” But he doesn’t have a deal with the Heat, he simply is getting an extended look, reports Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel. According…

  14. Today’s reminder civilization is ending: Juwan Howard is recording his own rap album

    Sep 1, 2012, 3:00 PM EDT

    Juwan Howard

    I… I mean… I just… Here.  OK, so Howard’s 39. So what? Dr. Dre is 47. Also, pretty sure Dr. Dre has been working on “Detox” for longer than Howard has been in the NBA. Still, Howard joins a long and prolific group of NBA players to join the rap game, including Shaq, Stephen Jackson,…

  15. Video: George Hill, Roy Hibbert mess with Pacers fans

    Aug 31, 2012, 2:15 PM EDT

    Roy Hibbert eating

    One of the most coveted areas to sit at Pacers home games is Area 55 — Roy Hibbert‘s personal cheering section. And they root for the team, too. These people try out and promise to be loud and crazy all game long — like soccer fans — and for that they get free tickets to…

  16. A quick look at your top free agents for 2013 (as of now)

    Aug 30, 2012, 10:50 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Clippers - Game Four

    After a summer of rebuilding and trying to put a team together, there are a few teams out there that are clearly looking at next summer as the chance to remake their lineup. Yes, we’re looking at you, Dallas. But you are not alone. So, who are next summer’s big potential free agents? Here is…

  17. Winderman: NBA’s new fiscal reality has veterans considering minimums

    Aug 28, 2012, 9:08 PM EDT

    Andray Blatche

    More than 20 teams still have all or part of their mid-level exception, be it the full $5 million, the $3.1 million taxpayer version or the $2.6 million post-cap-space variety. More than 10 still can put their $2 million bi-annual exception into play. And yet, now a month from the start of training camps, veterans…

  18. Video: Paul George did what, now?

    Aug 25, 2012, 9:41 PM EDT

    Sprite Slam Dunk Contest

    So that’s Paul George of the Indiana Pacers going through-the-legs-360. Which is nice, for all of us, really. I’d also like to point out LeBron who was also on this trip to Shanghai going nuts for George. This is today’s reminder that all of those rivalries you think are significant and meaningful are really the…

  19. Lou Amundson considering offer from overseas

    Aug 25, 2012, 1:00 PM EDT

    Louis Amundson

    Lou Amundson is a blue-collar, hard working player who doesn’t have any exceptional skills but can fill in down low in a pinch, do his job, and always give consistent effort, which is harder to find in the NBA than you’d think. He’s a free agent and hasn’t gotten the deal he’s looking for yet.…

  20. NBA Summer Power Rankings: Free agency moves Lakers up

    Aug 23, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant Dwight Howard

    Summer NBA power rankings are about as meaningful and accurate as preseason college football rankings. At least the NBA isn’t silly enough to have something like this matter in determining a champion. That would be stupid. The top and the bottom of the poll are what you’d expect, but the Lakers and Celtics moved up…

  22. The Inbounds: The commonly sensible signing of Serge Ibaka

    Aug 20, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets - Game Three

    I’m not known as the biggest Serge Ibaka guy. I have an analytic relationship with the Oklahoma City Thunder that too closely mirrors that of an indie rock fan in its obnoxiousness. In short, I saw the jump coming in the early months of 2010 when they started the leap to contention and was huge on them,…

  23. Hornets agree to four-year extension with Monty Williams

    Aug 19, 2012, 8:51 AM EDT

    Monty Williams

    Surviving last year with the Hornets is a pretty impressive feat for Monty Williams. Losing Chris Paul and David West, dealing with the veto debacle, having Eric Gordon perpetually injured, being drastically low on talent, the deck was stacked against Williams. But instead of the team falling apart, even though they wound up with an…

  25. Argentina grinds down Brazil for win, wants another shot at USA

    Aug 8, 2012, 5:33 PM EDT

    London Olympics Basketball Men

    Argentina’s “golden generation” will be playing for a London Olympics medal. And (barring a major upset) they are going to get one more crack at the United States first. Argentina beat Brazil in an emotional South American rivalry game Wednesday thanks to their savvy team play and defense. That team play turned out to be…
