  1. Rumor: Nets to retire Jason Kidd’s number this season

    Aug 12, 2013, 1:21 PM EST

    jason-kidd1

    The Nets have six retired numbers, including Julius Irving (32), Buck Williams (52) and Drazen Petrovic (3). Jason Kidd’s 5 should join them this season. That’s not really a shock — he’s one of the franchise’s biggest stars, led them in their glory days of trips to the NBA Finals and is now back to…

  2. Pierce says Rondo injury was first domino in Boston rebuild

    Aug 12, 2013, 12:43 PM EST

    Paul Pierce, Rajon Rondo

    It was back in January when any hope of the Boston Celtics as contenders was completely dashed — Rajon Rondo had torn his ACL and was done for the rest of the campaign. That was also the day the first domino fell that eventually led to Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett being traded to the…

  3. Paul Pierce plans to skip Nets’ preseason game in Boston

    Aug 9, 2013, 1:58 PM EST

    Paul Pierce

    We’re all well aware of how emotional it will be for the fans in Boston and the players alike when Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett play their first game against the Celtics as members of the Brooklyn Nets. They could get it over with fairly quickly, as the Nets are slated to play in Boston…

  4. Paul Pierce says he didn’t want to be part of rebuilding, trade was mutual

    Aug 8, 2013, 4:48 PM EST

    Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce

    Paul Pierce will always love Boston, he’s admitted being traded out of there this summer has been hard on him. His number will eventually go into the rafters and generations of Celtics fans will tell their kids about “The Truth.” That didn’t mean he wanted to stay through a rebuild. Now Pierce and Kevin Garnett…

  5. Celtics great Robert Parish understands what it’s like to be Rajon Rondo

    Aug 8, 2013, 12:01 AM EST

    robert parish Bulls

    Rajon Rondo is a legitimate All-Star point guard, and the only elite level talent left on a Celtics roster that will be undergoing a full-fledged rebuild beginning next season. There are questions as to whether or not Boston will (or should) retain Rondo during this transition, because at some point, you need special players to…

  6. Joe Dumars hopes Josh Smith-Greg Monroe-Andre Drummond frontcourt can take cues from Hawks and Grizzlies

    Aug 7, 2013, 6:12 PM EST

    Josh Smith, Andre Drummond

    Which team has the best starting frontcourt in the NBA? Depending on how you value the top player compared to the depth of the trio, there are several contenders including: Nets (Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Brook Lopez) Bulls (Luol Deng, Carlos Boozer, Joakim Noah) Nuggets (Danilo Gallinari, Kenneth Faried, JaVale McGee) Warriors (Andre Iguodala, David…

  7. Bobcats have most back-to-backs (21), Nets have 20

    Aug 7, 2013, 10:18 AM EST

    NBA Draft Basketball

    Just last season Jason Kidd was an older player who needed a little extra rest here and there, and got it during back-to-backs. Now he’s the head coach of a team with some older key pieces — Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce — and once he looked at the NBA schedule released Tuesday he had…

  8. Ten NBA must-watch games this season

    Aug 6, 2013, 7:24 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    The NBA schedule is out and it’s a little like Christmas Day (unless you’re a beat reporter, then it’s explain to your wife how much you’ll be gone day, which is a lot less fun). Today is the day you can really start to taste the matchups that are coming. There are more good storylines…

  9. NBA releases 2013-14 schedule, here are your opening night and Christmas Day matchups

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat

    After several notable leaks over the past couple of weeks, we finally have the official version of the 2013-14 NBA schedule. Let’s get right to it by taking a look at the slate for some of the key dates in the season. OPENING NIGHT: Tuesday, October 29 MAGIC at PACERS: The first game of the…

  10. Matt Barnes says the NBA has gotten soft

    Aug 6, 2013, 11:01 AM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Six

    During the offseason NBA TV will reshow some classic games and when you look back at older eras a few things jump out at you. For one, the game was played much faster in the 1980s — the Dallas Mavericks were the slowest paced team in 1985 at 98.8 possessions a game, the Rockets were…

  11. Doc Rivers thinks trade could rejuvenate Paul Pierce

    Aug 5, 2013, 10:43 AM EST

    Paul Pierce

    It was pretty evident Paul Pierce didn’t love the idea of being traded. It seemed a situation where he intellectually understood this as a good move for him, but after 15 years as a Celtic is was understandably emotionally hard. But Doc Rivers thinks it could be good for him. Rivers, who left Boston as…

  12. Report: Pistons still have interest in Rajon Rondo, even after acquiring Brandon Jennings

    Aug 4, 2013, 5:00 PM EST

    Rajon Rondo, Brandon Jennings

    The Pistons were reportedly one of the first teams in line to talk with the Celtics about a potential deal for Rajon Rondo, once Boston entered a full-fledged rebuild by sending Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett to the Nets. Whether due to the offers being low while Rondo still rehabs from a torn ACL injury,…

  13. Jason Kidd using movies like “Matrix,” “Elysium” to motivate Nets

    Aug 2, 2013, 10:17 AM EST

    NBA Draft Basketball

    When you’re the head coach of the Brooklyn Nets, you get invited to exclusive special movie screenings. That doesn’t happen much to the head coach of the Bucks (sorry to break it to you, Larry Drew). Kidd was at the New York premiere of the new Matt Damon/Jodie Foster film “Elysium” (which looked good in…

  14. Andrei Kirilenko scoffs at Russian conspiracy theory

    Aug 1, 2013, 1:11 PM EST

    Andrei Kirilenko

    You have heard the conspiracy theory by now: Andrei Kirilenko opted out of the $10.2 million final year of his contract with Minnesota to sign with the Brooklyn Nets for the taxpayers midlevel exception of $3.1 million (he signed a two year deal). Around the league there are plenty of executives convinced there is something…

  15. More schedule leaks: Nets to host Heat in home opener, Knicks to host Heat Feb. 1

    Jul 31, 2013, 7:47 PM EST

    LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Tyson Chandler

    The full 2013-14 NBA schedule is likely to be released some time in the next couple of weeks, but there are certain entities (like the league’s broadcast partners, for example) that have seen as close to what will be the final draft as possible. That’s one reason some of the marquee dates are beginning to…

  16. Chalmers knows East going to be a lot tougher this season

    Jul 30, 2013, 1:20 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 6

    The Indiana Pacers get Danny Granger back and added a lot of depth. The Chicago Bulls get former NBA MVP Derrick Rose back. The Brooklyn Nets added Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce, plus some depth. The New York Knicks added Metta World Peace and will have Iman Shumpert a full season. Miami has won the…

  17. NBA post free agency Power Rankings: Who is closing in on Miami?

    Jul 29, 2013, 8:44 AM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers' Paul and Griffin wait for play to resume as the Clippers trail the San Antonio Spurs during the second half of an NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    This summer saw Dwight Howard find a new home, the Clippers and Pacers add depth, and a few other teams making bold moves to get better (or, in some cases, worse intentionally). So how did all this impact the PBT Power Rankings? Glad you asked. Here is where things stand this summer (the number in…

  18. Doc Rivers says Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett have plenty left to give to the Nets

    Jul 28, 2013, 9:30 AM EST

    Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett

    When the Celtics pulled the plug on their championship aspirations by trading Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett to the Nets, it wasn’t because those two Hall of Fame players were completely finished. Salary considerations — along with the reality that even if the core stars were kept together in Boston for one more season, it…

  19. Pierce, Garnett return to Boston for preseason game. Well, if they play.

    Jul 26, 2013, 8:44 AM EST

    Newly acquired Net's NBA players attend a news conference introducing them to the media in Brooklyn

    It’s going to just look strange — Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett playing in the TD Garden in Boston wearing Brooklyn Nets jerseys. It will happen twice during the regular season — but it could happen before that, during an Oct. 23 preseason game, reports CSNNE.com. Of course, this is preseason, so it is certainly…

  20. Lakers will not have quite as much 2014 cap space as some think

    Jul 23, 2013, 1:42 PM EST

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Lakers

    While fans (and a lot of front office executives) around the league have enjoyed the Lakers stumbles last season, we all know the plan. And it’s a very feasible one. The Lakers will muddle through this season then rebuild on the fly through free agency in the summer of 2014 when virtually everybody comes off…

  21. Pierce, Garnett talk Rondo’s adjustment to injury, very different team

    Jul 22, 2013, 9:55 AM EST

    Rajon Rondo

    The Boston Celtics are Rajon Rondo’s team now. The veteran leaders Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen are long gone, which was already going to make this a strange season for Rondo — they have gone from a team that thought about titles to rebuilding. Add in the fact Rondo is coming back off…

  22. Pierce says in Brooklyn he’ll be a “glorified role player”

    Jul 21, 2013, 3:30 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    The Celtics were Paul Pierce’s team. It was the “big three” era but Pierce was the face of the Celtics, the best and most loved Celtics star since the Bird era. Even he admits putting on a Nets jersey next season will be a little strange at first, but it also will be very different…

  23. Celtics GM Ainge eyes opening night return for Rajon Rondo

    Jul 21, 2013, 12:30 PM EST

    Rajon Rondo

    Rajon Rondo is the last bit of star power remaining in the Celtics locker room, after the team decided to enter a full-fledged rebuild by trading Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett to the Brooklyn Nets. Rondo is not healthy, however, after undergoing surgery for a torn ACL injury he suffered in late January of last…

  24. Prokhorov says he’s done his part, it’s on the team now. No pressure.

    Jul 19, 2013, 8:44 PM EST

    Newly acquired Net's Pierce, Garnett and Terry hold up their new jerseys as they pose for a photo with principal owner Prokhorov after a news conference in Brooklyn

    Among the most popular discussion topics among front office types at the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas was a thinly-veiled disgust at Mikhail Prokhorov and the Brooklyn Nets. While even elite teams are looking to save costs against the new tax structure — Miami amnestied Mike Miller to save money — the Nets went…

  25. Paul Pierce sold Kevin Garnett on move from Celtics to the Nets

    Jul 18, 2013, 6:28 PM EST

    Newly acquired Net's NBA players attend a news conference introducing them to the media in Brooklyn

    Paul Pierce didn’t have a choice as to whether or not he would be traded to the Nets, but Kevin Garnett did thanks to being one of the few players in the league that had a rare no-trade clause built into his contract. And apparently, it took a whole lot of convincing to get Garnett…
