  1. 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…

  2. Doug Collins says 76ers were “maxed out,” had to evolve

    Sep 12, 2012, 2:03 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers introduce Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson

    It’s going to be a very different 76ers team that takes the court this fall — and there is a lot of optimism in Philly that this is a better team. It may be in the short term, but more importantly Philly has positioned itself well to improve in the years going forward with cap…

  3. Andrew Bynum raises the stakes for Holiday, Turner

    Aug 16, 2012, 2:45 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Chicago Bulls

    Andrew Bynum is just one piece. I like that piece, I like the direction the 76ers are going. But as the double teams start loading up on Bynum fast and he gets better at passing out of them (a skill he needs to work on) it just puts more pressure on everyone else. The other…

  4. Philly goes big with Bynum, which worries Doc Rivers (a little)

    Aug 16, 2012, 7:55 AM EDT

    Doug Collins on Wednesday told a great story that illustrates perfectly just what Andrew Bynum can mean to Philadelphia. Collins was in London calling basketball games for NBC when the Dwight Howard trade that brought Bynum to the Sixers went down. Collins and NBC Olympics hoops studio analyst Doc Rivers — old friends from around…

  5. Wednesday And-1 links: FIBA wants 3-on-3 basketball in Olympics

    David Stern

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points like I love a good IPA. • Forget the under-23 age limit stuff, what…

  6. It’s official: League approves four-team deal, Howard a Laker

    Aug 10, 2012, 1:42 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant Dwight Howard

    Some Lakers fans were convinced David Stern was going to try to kill this blockbuster, balance changing trade. And you could bet if he really could have some owners (*cough*Mark Cuban*cough*) would have pressured him to do so. But the league had no real standing to block this trade — because it can be justified…

  7. Doug Collins’ comments on trade of Iguodala for Bynum

    Aug 10, 2012, 12:06 PM EDT

    DCollins_Sixers

    Doug Collins is in London as part of the NBC broadcast team coving the Olympics, specifically the semi-final games Friday (Russia vs. Spain, USA vs. Argentina). He’s also the coach of the Philadelphia 76ers, one of the four teams involved in the blockbuster Dwight Howard trade. The Sixers get former Lakers big man Andrew Bynum…

  8. Report: Four-team deal sending Howard to Lakers finalized, awaits league approval

    Aug 9, 2012, 10:27 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Finally, Dwight Howard is being traded. A complex four-team trade that sends Dwight Howard to the Lakers and Andre Iguodala to the Nuggets and involves the 76ers and Magic has been approved in principle by the teams and will go to the league for formal approval on Friday, reports Marc Stein of ESPN. Sources close…

  9. Report: Four-team Howard deal close… unless it is not

    Aug 9, 2012, 7:56 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v New York Knicks

    The Dwight Howard Tilt-A-Whirl started spinning again today and we all just want to get off. According to ESPN’s Chris Broussard a complex four-team deal to ship Dwight Howard to the Lakers is “close.” A four-team trade that would send Dwight Howard to the Los Angeles Lakers is “very close” to happening and could be…

    Orlando Magic's Dwight Howard gestures during the first half of their NBA basketball game against the Boston Celtics in Boston

    UPDATE 4:10 pm: Here’s a bit of an update on this complex blockbuster four-team Dwight Howard trade that illustrates how complex and potentially unlikely it is. From Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo: Orlando’s Jason Richardson has been significant name in 4-way talks too, sources tell Y! There’s a scenario where he goes with Howard to LA.…

  11. Dwight Howard silly season opens up. The Thunder? Will not happen.

    Jul 23, 2012, 12:34 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    With all Dwight Howard trade action — to the Rockets, to the Lakers in a three-team deal with Cleveland, to anyone — in a holding pattern, speculation is starting to run wild. Not rumors. Not “hey, GM X talked to the Magic to put in a bid.” But rather random, rampant speculation from the media…

  12. Report: Bynum extension in Cleveland shows challenges of Howard trade

    Jul 19, 2012, 8:42 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    On one hand this is not new news — everyone involved knew Cleveland would not trade for Andrew Bynum as part of a three-team deal that sends Dwight Howard to the Lakers unless Bynum was willing to commit long term. And he might, in the past Cleveland was one of the three teams on a…

  13. The Inbounds: Hennigan’s Rainbow

    Jul 19, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Los Angeles Lakers

    Earlier this month, it seemed like new Magic GM Rob Hennigan was trapped, and succumbing to the pressure. Word spread that the Nets were that magical word, “close” to a deal for Dwight Howard, in one of the most complicated trades maybe ever proposed, involving up to 14 players being swapped. The result was shady…

  14. Reheated rumor: Cavaliers reportedly back as third team in Howard to Lakers trade

    Jul 18, 2012, 3:59 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    You spin me right round, baby; right round like a record, baby; Right round round round… I wish the Dwight Howard trade were dead or alive. Instead it keeps limping along in unlikely incarnations as the Lakers make one more push for it before throwing in the towel and talking to Andrew Bynum about a…

  15. Lakers want to move quickly on Howard or focus on Bynum extension

    Jul 18, 2012, 10:45 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Seven

    The Lakers and Magic sat down Tuesday and talked about what it would take to get a Dwight Howard trade done. We told you that was happening and Dave McMenamin of ESPNLosAngeles.com confirmed it. We also told you that they can talk all they want but unless Andrew Bynum agrees to commit to staying in…

  16. It’s likely futile, but Lakers reportedly talking Howard again

    Jul 17, 2012, 1:46 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    We’ve seen this movie before. I’m not sure why it would end differently this time, but we’re seeing it again. The Lakers are back making a Dwight Howard push, according to Marc Spears at Yahoo Sports. Lakers pushing hard to land Magic center Dwight Howard & meeting with Magic today, sources tell Y! LAL wants…

  17. Houston Rockets going hard after Dwight Howard dream

    Jul 13, 2012, 9:49 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Rockets GM Daryl Morey is going all-in. He is pushing his chips in and trying to win the bracelet. Or in this case, the ring. To win titles in the NBA you need to have a franchise anchor, a true superstar. Since 1980, one team has won a title without at least one of those…

  18. Report: Rockets to amnesty Luis Scola

    Jul 12, 2012, 7:03 PM EDT

    Luis Scola

    Rockets general manager continues to be very aggressive, trying to break out of the mediocre rut Houston has been stuck in. In a league where quality big men are at a premium, the Rockets are going to use their amnesty clause to cut loose Luis Scola and his three-years, $31 million remaining, reports Adrian Wojnarowski…

  19. Report: Nets move back to front of line for Dwight Howard trade

    Jul 11, 2012, 1:55 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    At some point the roulette wheel will stop spinning, the ball will stop bouncing around and find it’s slot, and Dwight Howard is going to get traded. Promise. It’s going to happen someday. While it feels close, like it could happen today, we’re not there yet. For now, the Nets have moved back to the…

  20. Dwight Howard latest: Three-team deal with Bynum to Rockets in play

    Jul 10, 2012, 8:03 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Los Angeles Lakers

    The Lakers have not been able to swing a Dwight Howard for Andrew Bynum deal. The Rockets have not been able to convince Orlando to trade them Howard for picks and a few players. So, how about a three way deal. It’s being discussed, reports Eric Pincus at Hoopsworld (and confirmed by Marc Stein at…

  21. Details of potential Dwight Howard trade leaking. Magic get Lopez, picks.

    Jul 9, 2012, 4:54 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v New York Knicks

    UPDATE 4:54 pm: The Clippers may be the fourth team in the deal, reports both Ken Berger at CBSSports.com and Chad Ford at ESPN. The Clippers would send a first round pick to the Nets for MarShon Brooks, then the Nets would ship that pick to the Magic as part of the deal. This appears…

  22. Report: Lakers willing to offer Bynum, World Peace for Howard, if he will stay in L.A.

    Jul 3, 2012, 2:29 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Los Angeles Lakers

    Dwight Howard still has some leverage over in where he gets traded. Not because the Magic give a rat’s a** what he wants, if they could trade him to a team from Siberia in the Russian league they would do it. Rather it’s because he can walk away as a free agent next summer from…

  23. Dwight Howard to Nets: It can happen, but is it likely?

    Jul 3, 2012, 12:12 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    The Orlando Magic are talking to the New Jersey Nets about a possible Dwight Howard deal. And there are a few ways — complex ways — that a deal could come together. But if you think it’s a foregone conclusion — and I’m looking at you, Nets fans — you should check out what Ken…

  24. Maybe it won’t be so easy, Magic beat Pacers 81-77 in Game 1

    Apr 28, 2012, 11:25 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Indiana Pacers - Game One

    This was the dull series. This was going to be a sweep (as I predicted). The Orlando Magic without Dwight Howard were not going to be able to hang with an up-and-coming Indiana Pacers team. Well, unless Indiana helps them out with a terrible offensive performance. One where they looked young and in awe of…

  25. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Fear Memphis, for they are a force

    Apr 10, 2012, 9:24 AM EDT

    Caron Butler, Marc Gasol

    What you missed while marveling at Japanese beer technology. Grizzlies 94, Clippers 85: Why does everyone fear the Grizzlies right now? Because they have a huge front line with skill. Because they have very good wing players. Because they have depth. Because they have won 8 of 10 and that includes victories over the Lakers,…
