I mean, there’s always a chance.

James, on one-year minimum-salary contract, will have right to veto trades
Aug 12, 2014, 11:49 AM EDT
Cuban is right, Dallas had a really strong off-season. But does that get them higher than fourth in the brutal West?

LeBron, Wade and Bosh all almost certainly return to Miami, but they want to keep the pressure on Pat Riley and Heat ownership.

Potential landing spots for the point guard: Heat? Pistons? Knicks?

A lot of people want a big punishment for Sterling, but the league constitution limits what commissioner Adam Silver can do.

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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.…

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…

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.…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…
