  1. 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…

  2. 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.…

  4. 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…

  5. Irving, Lillard highlight guys heading to Team USA mini-camp this summer

    Jun 12, 2013, 2:09 PM EDT

    East All-Star Kyrie Irving of the Cleveland Cavaliers competes in the three-point contest during the NBA basketball All-Star weekend in Houston

    This summer is when USA Basketball brings in its prospects — guys it wants to get a closer look. Next summer Team USA will be heading off to Spain for the World Championships with a roster that could include a handful of the guys from this camp (mixed with some big name NBA stars). USA…

  6. 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…

  7. PBT NBA Draft Preview: Has Shabazz Muhammad slid into a real value pick?

    May 14, 2013, 8:01 PM EDT

    Shabazz Muhammad

    For the next five weeks PBT will be profiling likely first-round draft picks in the upcoming NBA Draft. Tonight we look at UCLA’s star from last season. If you looked at the early 2013 NBA draft projections that came out right after the 2012 draft, Shabazz Muhammad was in everybody’s top three. He was the…

  8. New Sixers GM Hinkie says Bynum just another free agent

    May 14, 2013, 6:53 PM EDT

    Sam-Hinkie_headshot_rd

    Don’t throw good money after bad. It is good advice in Las Vegas — you’re not going to win that money back on one big roulette bet — and it’s good advice for NBA general managers. Who do their fair share of gambling. Like pushing all your chips in on Andrew Bynum last summer. New…

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Three

    If you were anchoring your defense with one center in the NBA right now who would it be? For the past few years the answer was Dwight Howard, he was the perennial Defensive Player of the Year candidate (voted on by the media) and NBA All-Defensive First Team, voted on by the coaches. But if…

  11. Jrue Holiday and Evan Turner: 76ers should hire Michael Curry

    May 9, 2013, 3:47 PM EDT

    Jrue Holiday, Evan Turner

    Though Doug Collins’ departure from the 76ers was framed as his decision, it seemed Philadelphia wasn’t exactly heartbroken to see him go. But the three-year Collins era with the 76ers was a relative success. They made the postseason for consecutive years for the first time since 2008 and 2009 and a playoff series for the…

  12. It’s official: David Kahn let go as Minnesota GM; Flip Saunders to step in

    It’s not a surprise. We told you it was coming. But it is still the end of an era we all enjoyed, even if we enjoyed mocking most of the time. David Kahn has been let go as the general manager of the Minnesota Timberwolves the team has confirmed, something first reported by the Associated…

  13. Report: Sixers reach out to Brian Shaw about coaching job

    Apr 28, 2013, 9:31 PM EDT

    Brian Shaw

    Brian Shaw is once again going to get a number of job interviews this off-season… well, once the Pacers start to have an off-season. And among the teams he will talk to is the Philadelphia 76ers, reports Dei Lynam CSNPhilly.com. The Sixers, according to a source, have contacted the Pacers’ associate head coach about their…

  15. Sixers will consider Bynum return but have bigger issues to deal with

    Apr 19, 2013, 12:35 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers introduce Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson

    The Philadelphia 76ers gambled and lost. They traded Andre Iguodala to get back Andrew Bynum and rebuild their roster around an elite big man. Problem was, he’s an elite big man with terrible knees that never saw the court. And the aftermath of that decision is just beginning to come to down on the team.…

  16. It’s official, Doug Collins out as 76ers head coach

    Apr 18, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Doug Collins

    This isn’t a surprise. Not to you — we told you this was coming a week ago. And not to the Sixers organization — coach Doug Collins said he let the organization know his plans just after Christmas. But now it is official — Doug Collins has resigned as the head coach of the Philadelphia…

  17. Who’s next as 76ers head coach? How about some Curry? Or Mike Brown?

    Apr 15, 2013, 12:10 PM EDT

    Mike Brown

    Doug Collins is stepping down. Oh, he could be back with the Sixers next season in some kind of front office role or as a consultant — the two sides will find some kind of buyout and graceful exit for him — but he will not be grinding the players in practice and storming the…

    Apr 1, 2013, 11:36 AM EDT

    Justin Holiday

    Would you want your brother on your team? Sure, so long as he doesn’t tell mom everything going on during road trips. Just the PG version. Sixers All-Star Jrue Holiday is going to get his brother on the team — the Sixers have signed Justin Holiday for the rest of this season. Justin, like his…

  21. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Heat continue streaking, Harden hits the game-winner to beat the Spurs

    San Antonio Spurs v Houston Rockets

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while watching FGCU celebrate their trip to the Sweet 16 a thousand times. Nets 102, Suns 100: The Nets were without Joe Johnson in this one, but early in the third quarter, when Brooklyn had increased its lead to 16 points, it seemed…

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while wishing you were as well traveled as this dog… Heat 105, Celtics 103: This felt like a playoff game — it was chippy, emotional and the crowd was into it. Jeff Green took over for the Celtics with 43 points, giving the…

  23. Heat extend win streak to 20 but Sixers make them work for it

    Mar 13, 2013, 10:29 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    In the first half of the season, this was the kind of game the Heat would lose — a back-to-back, a fired up opponent playing better than they have in weeks, and the Heat just kind of coasting. With an 8.5 game lead over the No. 2 in the East, it’s the kind of game…

  24. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Miami wants to know if you have any other challengers

    Mar 11, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Miami Heat's guard Dwyane Wade goes to the basket past Indiana Pacers guard George Hill during their NBA game in Miami

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while wondering where you’re going to get your next lion meat burger if not Chicago…. Lakers 90, Bulls 81: The Lakers offense has been better of late and the Bulls offense continues to be unimpressive. At best. Those things combine to give the…

  25. Report: Sixers almost acquired Josh Smith at deadline

    Mar 7, 2013, 11:16 AM EDT

    Josh Smith, Devin Harris

    On paper it’s an impressive front line — Andrew Bynum and Josh Smith. On the court… that would have been interesting. I mean, assuming Bynum ever gets back on the court. Like the Bucks backcourt, it could be both amazing and painfully bad, not even game to game but quarter to quarter. We will not…
