Jameer Nelson

  1. Sunday night NBA grades: Tony Parker is back and looks good

    Mar 3, 2014, 2:12 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v San Antonio Spurs

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while thinking “I really should see that movie”…. Tony Parker, San Antonio Spurs. In case you forgot, he’s really good at basketball. He wasn’t really getting going in transition yet, but he was dominant in the half court, scoring 10 of the first 17 Spurs…

  2. Washington Wizards reportedly tried hard to trade for Jameer Nelson

    Feb 27, 2014, 10:12 AM EDT

    Jameer Nelson, Jonas Valanciunas

    It was no secret the Washington Wizards needed point guard help behind John Wall. It’s also no secret the rebuilding Orlando Magic are no longer a great fit for 32-year-old Jameer Nelson. The two teams would have made sense as trade partners before last week’s deadline. In fact, the Wizards reportedly really wanted to be…

  3. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Thunder, Heat on top coming up to trade deadline

    Feb 17, 2014, 8:16 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Los Angeles Lakers

    Today’s PBT NBA Power Rankings — brought to you by the technology of airplane wi-fi — will talk about the All-Star weekend past and the trade deadline coming up, as there weren’t many other games to speak of. 1. Thunder (43-12, Last Week No. 1). Their addition at the trade deadline is simply getting Russell…

  4. The Extra Pass: Ranking all 28 2016 U.S. Olympic Basketball Team candidatles

    Jan 23, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Olympics Day 16 - Basketball

    Some names leaked yesterday for inclusion on the 2014-16 USA Basketball men’s national-team roster – the pool of players who will be considered for upcoming international events. That includes the World Cup of Basketball this summer, possibly 2015 Olympic qualifiers  – and, of course, the 2016 Rio Olympics. Marc Stein of ESPN beat today’s official announcement with…

  5. Mario Chalmers warned for flopping by league (VIDEO)

    Jan 21, 2014, 5:05 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Miami Heat

    The Heat were about to lose to the Hawks on Monday when LeBron James tried to make the final seconds interesting with a three, which missed. What the league noticed on that play was Mario Chalmers, who comes down the left side and tries to get into rebounding position, gets legitimately bumped from behind, and…

  6. Jameer Nelson after being fined for obscene gesture: ‘I’ll do it again’

    Jan 18, 2014, 11:00 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Indiana Pacers - Game Five

    The NBA views what Jameer Nelson did in celebration of hitting a big shot against the Bulls earlier this week as an “obscene gesture,” and routinely fines players who continue to rejoice in this way. We all know it as the “big balls dance,” made famous by Sam Cassell. Nelson was slapped with a $15,000…

  7. Jameer Nelson on Victor Oladipo: ‘He’s faster than a hiccup’

    Jan 17, 2014, 1:20 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v New York Knicks

    Victor Oladipo is a lot of fun. Everywhere he’s gone, his teammates love playing with him, and it’s easy to see why. He’s an explosive athlete who plays with a ton of passion – an awesome combination. The Orlando Magic are 10-29 as we reach the time of year when bad teams fall into ruts.…

  8. Magic’s Jameer Nelson fined $15,000 for doing “Sam Cassell Dance”

    Jan 16, 2014, 12:59 PM EDT

    Chicago at Orlando

    You can call it the “Sam Cassell Dance” (which is my preferred moniker). You can call it the “big balls dance.” You can call it the “Pedro Sorano Dance” from Major League II and you’d be right about the origin of it. Whatever you call it, you can’t do it in the NBA. Orlando’s Jameer…

  9. Thursday night NBA grades: Golden State get a couple “A” grades

    Jan 3, 2014, 3:22 AM EDT

    Stephen Curry

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while worrying about what was really in your donkey meat… Stephen Curry, Golden State Warriors. When he is going like he was in this game — especially in the third quarter when he had 14 of his 36 — there is nothing you can do.…

  10. PBT’s NBA Power Rankings: Stability at the top, trades could shake up bottom

    Dec 16, 2013, 1:47 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Portland Trail Blazers

    There is no movement at the top of the standings as the top five teams went 15-1 last week (and that one loss was to another top 5 team). However, get past that five and you get into teams like the Rockets, Suns and others where trades could really change rankings as we move toward…

  11. Magic’s Glen Davis dislocated shoulder during game, had it popped back in, returned

    Dec 16, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    NEW YORK, NY - DECEMBER 06: Glen Davis #11 of the Orlando Magic reacts to a call in the first quarter against the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden on December 6, 2013 in New York City.

    Glen Davis acted like a hockey player Sunday night. He has missed a lot of time and worked hard to get back on the court following a couple of foot surgeries — he’s not going to let a little injury keep him from going now. A little injury like a dislocated shoulder, one he got…

  12. Report: Kings “aggressively” looking to trade veterans to accelerate rebuild

    Nov 20, 2013, 3:11 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Los Angeles Lakers

    While most teams are feeling out deals and moving patiently with their big trade chips to see how the market shakes out — see the Houston Rockets and Denver Nuggets as examples 1A and 1B — the new regime in Sacramento is feeling a little more impatient. They have veterans available and they are looking…

  13. Friday Night NBA Grades: What tanking? Sixers, Suns both 2-0.

    Nov 2, 2013, 2:26 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Phoenix Suns

    Our grades from Thursday night around the NBA, or what you missed while trying to get that cat urine smell out of your computer…. Phoenix Suns and Philadelphia 76ers. Something funny happened on the way to the lottery… the Sixers and Suns, two of the poster teams for the tanking/riggin’ for Wiggins efforts, are both…

  14. Report: Magic willing to move Jameer Nelson for first round pick

    Nov 1, 2013, 4:37 PM EDT

    Jameer Nelson

    In our list of players likely to be traded this season, Jameer Nelson was right at the top. The Magic are rebuilding, Nelson is older (31) and only $2 million of his contract for next season is guaranteed, making it a virtual expiring deal. The question was how much would the Magic ask? The current…

  15. Five NBA players likely to get traded this season

    Oct 29, 2013, 3:35 PM EDT

    Jameer Nelson

    When I started compiling this list more than a week ago, Marcin Gortat was the guy on top of it — then his trade happened earlier than anyone expected. The Wizards want to make the playoffs this year, the Suns want to tank and so they had a common ground. Now who is most likely…

  16. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Let the season begin!

    Oct 28, 2013, 1:16 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    To celebrate a new season, we bring you a new set of NBA Power Rankings from PBT. Let the kvetching about your ranking begin! Just remember that this is an exercise in fun — these are meaningless as the NBA has a playoff system to decide who is best. What sport would rely on journalist’s…

  17. Future trade bait Glen Davis progressing from foot injury

    Oct 22, 2013, 3:40 PM EDT

    Tyler Hansbrough, Glen Davis

    When this season ends Glen Davis is going to be playing for someone other than Orlando. There are no sure things in the NBA, I could be wrong, but if I were Davis I would keep a “go bag” packed and ready near the front door. Why? Orlando is rebuilding and Davis is a veteran…

  18. PBT EXTRA: Southeast Division Preview

    Oct 17, 2013, 3:33 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 7

    When you talk Southeast Division it starts with the Miami Heat and the obvious question: Can they make it a three-peat? Yes, the can. I’m not picking them to, but yes, they can. They are clearly the team to beat. The more interesting question about the Heat is, “What’s next?” Will all three — LeBron…

  19. PBT Roundtable: Who will win Rookie of the Year?

    Oct 11, 2013, 12:55 AM EDT

    Trey Burke

    Welcome to PBT’s regular roundtable on issues around the NBA, where our writers weigh in on the topic of the day. Today: Who will win the NBA Rookie of the Year Award? Kurt Helin: There’s a formula to this — you need a guy with the ball in his hand on a bad team that is…

  20. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: The Orlando Magic

    Oct 4, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Tobias Harris

    Last season: It was a season of transition. The Magic started out near .500 (12-13) but when Glen Davis got injured things fell apart. The Magic won 8 games the rest of the year and by the trade deadline they had fully embraced the rebuild, meaning J.J. Redick was the first out the door in…

  21. Glen Davis says surgically repaired foot will never be the same

    Oct 2, 2013, 2:44 PM EDT

    Tyler Hansbrough, Glen Davis

    Before he went down last season, Big Baby was having the best season of his career. Forced into a larger role with Dwight Howard on another coast, Glen Davis stepped up his game and was averaging 15.1 points and 7.2 rebounds a game — he wasn’t dominating, but he was solid. Which is a good…

  22. Jameer Nelson understands he’s on the trade block

    Oct 2, 2013, 11:42 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Indiana Pacers - Game Five

    Jameer Nelson is not in the future plans of the Orlando Magic, which is why he’s on everybody’s trade watch lists for this season. The Magic are rebuilding with youth, he is a 31-year-old point guard making a team-high $8.6 million this season but can be bought out for $2 million next season. (Yes, technically…

  23. Magic GM says team cautious with Glen Davis’ return, could miss start of camp

    Sep 24, 2013, 2:13 PM EDT

    Glen Davis

    It was thought a month ago that Glen Davis would be back for the start of Orlando’s training camp after missing most of last season following foot surgery. Maybe not. Orlando GM Rob Hennigan did a Q&A with Orlando’s own site and sounded very cautious about the return of Davis. “He’s progressing on schedule and…

  24. Report: Nerlens Noel to sign shoe deal with Reebok

    Sep 13, 2013, 5:57 PM EDT

    Sam Hinkie, Nerlens Noel

    The conventional wisdom is big men don’t sell shoes, attacking perimeter do — Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Derrick Rose. But Nerlens Noel, the center out of Kentucky who will play with the Sixers once he gets healthy (remember the knee injury last season) thinks he can be the exception to the rule. Noel…

  25. Point guard Beno Udrih to sign with New York Knicks

    Aug 8, 2013, 10:37 AM EDT

    =vn19

    The Knicks have picked up a very solid third point guard for their roster. According to multiple reports, Beno Udrih has decided to sign with New York on a one-year deal for the veteran minimum (Al Iannazzone of Newsday was first). Through his nine NBA seasons Udrih has been steady if unspectacular — he averaged…
