  1. Rosters set for Thursday’s USA Basketball intra-squad showcase

    Jul 25, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Damian Lillard, Harrison Barnes

    LAS VEGAS — USA Basketball will wrap up its four-day mini-camp on Thursday with an intra-squad showcase that will be played in front of fans at the Thomas and Mack Center on the campus of UNLV, and televised nationally on NBA TV. The rosters have been set for what is essentially an All-Star game where the…

  2. 76ers replace risk-taking front office with risk-taking front office

    Jul 23, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Sam Hinkie

    Confession: I liked the Andrew Bynum trade for the 76ers. They were a middling team capable of making the playoffs but without the proven ability to win a series unless the opponent’s top player was injured. Their roster had limited flexibility, and two starters, Elton Brand and Andre Iguodala, were aging. The 76ers didn’t necessarily…

  3. Tyreke Evans says he’d have no problem coming off the bench for the Pelicans

    Jul 20, 2013, 11:00 PM EDT

    Tyreke Evans

    Tyreke Evans has started all but 10 of the 257 games he’s appeared in through his first four NBA seasons. Given the horrific state of affairs in Sacramento during Evans’ time there — a period where the team never won more than 28 regular season games — there weren’t a lot of other options. And…

  4. Brian Roberts hopes Summer League helped his chances of staying in New Orleans next season

    Jul 20, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    Knicks Pelicans Basketball

    Brian Roberts was surprisingly productive for the Pelicans last year (when they were still called the Hornets), especially in the latter part of the season. He was a capable scorer from the guard position, and was regularly the one name that would jump out at you when combing through the morning’s box scores late in…

  5. Charles Barkley thinks it’s “silly” Sixers don’t have a coach yet

    Jul 20, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    Tahoe Celebrity Golf

    New Philadelphia GM Sam Hinkie is taking his time picking a coach for the Sixers. There was not one in place for the draft, not one for Summer League. He’s interviewing a handful of candidates, but there is no rush. Sixers’ legend Charles Barkley doesn’t get it. At all. Barkley doesn’t mince words and didn’t…

  6. Sprained ankle to keep Taj Gibson out of Team USA mini-camp

    Jul 19, 2013, 3:53 PM EDT

    Taj Gibson

    Chicago’s Taj Gibson’s blend of size and athleticism makes him an interesting fit for what Team USA likes to do — press on defense, create turnovers then get out and run. Play to your strengths, and with the USA that is the level and depth of athleticism. But a sprained ankle is going to keep…

  7. In a crowded Pelicans backcourt, Austin Rivers wants to show he belongs

    Jul 18, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Austin Rivers Summer League

    LAS VEGAS — Austin Rivers’ poor start to last season got a lot of attention — he was genuinely awful. Historically awful. For the season he ended with a PER of 5.9, the kind of number that normally would suggest his next paycheck will come from Europe. It’s the worst PER ever for a rookie…

  8. Is Eric Gordon healthy, fully invested with Pelicans? He told his coach he’s healthy at least.

    Jul 17, 2013, 10:14 PM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets' Gordon reacts after a call by officials while his team took on the Miami Heat during their NBA basketball game in New Orleans

    Eric Gordon’s last couple seasons in New Orleans haven’t been pretty. Injuries leading to not playing, the request to leave town and body language to suggest he was not happy that he had to stay. But has he turned a corner now that the Pelicans have Jrue Holiday and Tyreke Evans to go with Anthony…

  9. 76ers receive permission to interview Bulls assistants Ed Pinckney and Adrian Griffin

    Jul 16, 2013, 9:56 PM EDT

    ed-pinckney

    The 76ers traded their lone All-Star, Jrue Holiday, for a rookie and a draft pick. They let their player with the most potential, Andrew Bynum, leave in free agency. All signs say they’re not really interested in winning next season. It’s a sound plan – bottoming out to get better – but it’s a also…

  10. Kawhi Leonard to skip USA Basketball mini-camp; George Hill, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist added to the roster

    Jul 16, 2013, 12:32 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v San Antonio Spurs - Game Three

    USA Basketball will hold a four-day mini-camp in Las Vegas following the conclusion of Summer League beginning on July 22, and while the roster was originally set to include Kawhi Leonard, that will no longer be the case. Leonard will miss the mini-camp “while rehabbing from a long season,” USA Basketball announced on Tuesday via…

  11. Jrue Holiday-Nerlens Noel trade now official

    Jul 13, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Toney Douglas, Jrue Holiday

    Congratulations, Jrue Holiday. Fresh off marrying U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team member Lauren Cheney (now Lauren Holiday) – and the subsequent honeymoon that delayed his trade from becoming official – Jrue Holiday is now a husband and Pelican. The trade, which sends Nerlens Noel and a future first-round pick to the 76ers, hinged on Holiday…

  12. Austin Rivers shines in Summer League opener for the Pelicans

    Jul 12, 2013, 8:23 PM EDT

    Knicks Pelicans Basketball

    LAS VEGAS — Austin Rivers hasn’t played in an NBA basketball game since March 4, after suffering a broken hand injury that ended his season. You wouldn’t have known it in his first game with the Pelicans at the Las Vegas Summer League opener on Friday, as Rivers finished with 24 points, seven rebounds, and…

  14. Interesting draft note: If Bennett or Oladipo had fallen to No. 6, same Sixers/Pelican trade would have gone down

    Jul 9, 2013, 5:14 PM EDT

    2013 NBA Draft

    Just days before the 2013 NBA Draft Nerlens Noel was still the presumptive No. 1 pick and Anthony Bennett was thought to be the guy falling down draft boards. It was then that the brain trusts of Philadelphia and New Orleans came up with a trade that surprised a lot of people on draft night.…

  15. Tyreke Evans looking for stable role in New Orleans

    Jul 9, 2013, 12:06 PM EDT

    Tyreke Evans

    A few things made the last few seasons in Sacramento tough for Tyreke Evans. First, there were a series of injuries that slowed him down. There was a coaching change and just a general instability with the franchise as the Maloof era sputtered to its inevitable end. Then there was how Evans had different things…

  16. Eric Gordon thinks there’s ‘a good to great chance’ he’ll be back with the Pelicans

    Jul 4, 2013, 10:30 PM EDT

    Eric Gordon

    The NBA franchise in New Orleans now known as the Pelicans has been plenty busy this offseason, but all of their moves have involved relatively big-name guards who have the ability to score. On the surface, that seems like an odd choice. Eric Gordon is in that position for the Pelicans at a salary of…

  17. Kings, Pelicans, Blazers agree to three-way deal involving Tyreke Evans, Robin Lopez, Greivis Vasquez

    Jul 4, 2013, 5:49 PM EDT

    Greivis Vasquez, Jae Crowder, Vince Carter

    UPDATE 5:31 p.m.: The deal has been agreed upon, and now involves a third team in the Portland Trail Blazers. Tyreke Evans goes to the Pelicans, Greivis Vasquez heads to Sacramento, and Robin Lopez ends up in Portland. Marc Stein of ESPN.com reports that Terrel Harris will also head to the Blazers, who will send…

  18. Report: Tyreke Evans agrees to four-year, $44 million offer sheet from New Orleans

    Jul 3, 2013, 11:17 PM EDT

    Tyreke Evans

    Tyreke Evans has seen a decline in his numbers in each of the three seasons since his first, when he took home Rookie of the Year honors with the Sacramento Kings. There were reasons for that, including nagging injuries and a revolving door at the head coaching post in Sacramento under the team’s previous ownership.…

  19. Report: Pelicans making big offer to Tyreke Evans

    Jul 1, 2013, 1:58 AM EDT

    Tyreke Evans, Robin Lopez

    The Pelicans aren’t content adding just Jrue Holiday and Pierre Jackson to a dynamic backcourt that already included Eric Gordon and Greivis Vasquez. They’re also ready to offer Tyreke Evans, a restricted free agent, a sizable contract. David Aldridge of NBA.com: As @ESPNSteinLine reported, Pelicans will meet with Tyreke Evans late tonight. Told they will…

  20. Injury, risk reasons Nerlens Noel fell down draft board

    Jun 29, 2013, 2:00 PM EDT

    2013 NBA Draft

    When Nerlens Noel first went down with an ACL injury, the reaction of most scouts and league executives was he wouldn’t fall or if he did he wouldn’t fall that far in the draft. He was still a top three pick. But things started to feel different the last couple weeks. I can’t remember a…

  21. Three winners, three losers from NBA Draft. You bet Anthony Bennett is a winner.

    Jun 28, 2013, 3:04 AM EDT

    Anthony Bennett from UNLV reacts after being selected by the Clevland Cavaliers as the first overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft in Brooklyn

    I will admit this up front: declaring a winner in the NBA draft the night of the draft is premature. We can accurately say tonight that Indiana was a winner in the 2010 draft (Paul George at No. 10, Lance Stephenson at No. 40), but we don’t know how this draft will ultimately play out.…

  23. Trade: New Orleans sends Nerlens Noel and a 2014 pick to Sixers for Jrue Holiday

    Jun 27, 2013, 8:56 PM EDT

    Noel from the University of Kentucky shakes hands with NBA Commissioner Stern after being selected by the Pelicans as the sixth overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft in Brooklyn

    We have our first trade of the 2013 draft, and it involves some fairly big names. The New Orleans Pelicans selected Nerlens Noel with the sixth overall pick, but he won’t be playing alongside Anthony Davis on the front line next season. They picked him for the Philadelphia 76ers, who will send All-Star point guard…

  25. PBT Draft preview: Great news! The NBA is getting another Zeller brother!

    May 27, 2013, 9:14 PM EDT

    VCU v Wichita St.

    You hate to say a guy made a mistake going back to college for a year, but in Cody Zeller’s case…. The center out of Indiana was expected to come out as a top 10 pick last year and he chose to return to Indiana for a sophomore season. And he pretty much looked exactly…
