Hayward is an upgrade over Jeff Green at the three, but is he really worth a max contract?
Jun 20, 2014, 2:48 PM EDT
Could Carmelo Anthony command a max contract in 2015? That question is at the heart of how he should proceed.

I don’t think the Philadelphia 76ers are going to go 0-36 to end the season. They are going to get one more win. But when? Most nights they are overmatched — the other team is just more talented. That’s why they lost game 26 in a row Thursday night to the Houston Rockets, 120-98. The…

Report: Celtics interested in Utah’s Gordon Hayward. So are a lot of teams. Doesn’t mean he’ll be moved.
Feb 19, 2014, 12:04 AM EDT
Gordon Hayward has a lot of fans in NBA front offices. His ability to shoot it on a catch-and-shoot or off the bounce, his ability to create his own shot, the fact he’s a willing defender has a lot of teams seeing him as a good fit for what they do. He’s also a restricted…

This is exactly what Flip Saunders was talking about when he suggested this will be a slower than expected trade deadline because teams are not willing to part with picks in perceived good drafts. There is buzz out of Boston that GM Danny Ainge is shopping around just about everyone on the roster —Rajon Rondo…

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while wishing you had a beer refrigerator as cool as Canada’s…. Philadelphia 76ers. They have lost two consecutive games by 40 or more points — 45 to the Clippers on Sunday, 43 to the Warriors on Monday. The only other team to lose back-to-back games…

Tell me if this sounds at all familiar. 24 years old, about 6-foot-8, 6-foot-9. Roughly 250 pounds. Stronger and faster than just about everyone. Phenomenal basketball IQ. Highly skilled, but often criticized for what he can’t do instead of appreciated for what he does. That’s Blake Griffin. And at one point, that was LeBron James,…

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while wondering why anyone would live in a dumpster for a year, voluntarily… Dwight Howard, Houston Rockets. The NBA game is in large part about exploiting mismatches. With all due respect to the solid season Miles Plumlee is having, him trying to cover Dwight Howard…

No Russell Westbrook yet Kevin Durant has pushed the Thunder to the top of the West and the top of PBT’s weekly power rankings. Still strange to see the Celtics and Lakers near the bottom of the poll, but it’s where they belong this season. 1. Thunder (35-10, LW 4). Kevin Durant is making…

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…

With the game tied 111-111 and 10 seconds left in overtime, we didn’t really expect Boston’s Gerald Wallace to be the guy bringing the ball up the court. And when he did, we expected he would start to drive and pass it off. If not, he would settle for a pull-up jumper. But Wallace kept going,…

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while getting absorbed in the “Swingers” oral history…. Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City Thunder. Twitter has dubbed him the “Slim Reaper” and I, for one, like the new nickname. He dropped 36 points tonight on the Spurs, including a couple of clutch threes late and rather…

That is Greg Oden, the injury-riddled Heat big man who debuted with the team last week, starting to look like the guy the Heat hoped they were getting. The guy who can make a defensive difference in the paint. In the second quarter of the Heat/Celtics game Tuesday night, Boston’s Jeff Green got the ball…
