Kurt Thomas

  1. Knicks could be oldest team in NBA history, watch a lot of Matlock

    Oct 2, 2012, 3:14 PM EDT

    Knicks Media Day Basketball

    Stop saying that the Knicks bench walked the earth with the early dinosaurs. Let’s not blow this out of proportion. There is no way Kurt Thomas was on the earth during the Triassic era walking around with Nothosaurs. Maybe like the Crustaceous Period with the Triceratops, but no earlier. Knick age jokes — “What was…

  2. Report: Rasheed Wallace will sign with Knicks or nobody

    Sep 28, 2012, 5:32 PM EDT

    NBA Finals Game 7:  Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    UPDATE 5:32 pm: Rasheed Wallace’s agent spoke with ESPNNewYork.com and said that other teams should not get their hopes up about Sheed — he will play for the Knicks or nobody. “That’s my understanding, based on his relationship with Coach (Mike) Woodson,” Strickland said by phone. A team source said Wallace has not yet signed…

  3. Report: Knicks considering signing Rasheed Wallace. What could go wrong?

    Sep 23, 2012, 11:04 AM EDT

    rasheed_wallace

    Rasheed Wallace, coming back from the… wherever he was during retirement, to join the Knicks? It sounds like an Isiah Thomas fantasy that only James Dolan would find interesting, but it is apparently closer to reality than you might think, tweets ESPN’s Ric Bucher. NBA news: Rasheed Wallace working out at NYK practice facility w/Camby…

  4. NBA Season Preview: New York Knicks

    Sep 18, 2012, 12:05 PM EDT

    Knicks' Anthony celebrates after a three point shot late in the fourth quarter of the Knicks' win in Game 4 of their NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoff series against the Heat in New York

    This week 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. Next up, your New York Knicks. Last season: Good God, where to begin. Uh, they beat Boston in their first…

  5. Who will be better next season, the Knicks or Nets?

    Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    With rosters pretty much getting set except for a few final pieces around the NBA — save for one big shakeup still to come out of Orlando… eventually — we can start to get a serious look at how rosters are shaking out. And after all the moves the Nets made so they could open…

  6. Knicks sign-and-trade for Raymond Felton, is Jeremy Lin on the way out?

    Jul 14, 2012, 11:53 PM EDT

    New York Knicks' Lin pumps his fist from the bench as teammates score during their NBA basketball game in Toronto

    Things went from “easy and predictable” to completely insane Saturday night in Gotham. It had been a few days since things with the Knicks had seemed berserk, so of course, all that detonated as news broke that the Knicks’ point guard situation could be altered dramatically in a matter of hours. Here’s a rundown of…

  7. Portland’s bandwagon getting full as Lakers come to town

    Jan 5, 2012, 2:24 PM EDT

    portland-trail-blazers Gerald Wallace

    As you read this, the Portland Trail Blazers are the top seed in the Western Conference. Which after five whole games has all the meaning of a politician’s campaign promise, even in a 66 game season. Few people mention them as title contenders. But if you were watching the other day they beat Oklahoma City…

  8. NBA Season Preview: Chicago Bulls

    Dec 15, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Five

    2010-11 Record: 62-20 (best in the NBA, thanks to relentless effort on defense every night) Head Coach: Tom Thibodeau (you can thank him for the defense) Key Departures: Rasual Butler, Kurt Thomas Key Additions: Richard Hamilton — a big upgrade at the two. Best case scenario (that does not involve a highly unlikely Dwight Howard…

  9. Monday morning one liners (filled with rumors, signings)

    Dec 12, 2011, 10:56 AM EDT

    dwight_howard

    Our morning look around the NBA with stories worth reading and notes that are not their own post here at PBT. Don’t be shocked if the Chicago Bulls try to get in the Dwight Howard mix, but it is a longshot. If you read on thing today it should be this: Lakers trainer Gary Vitti…

  10. Are the Knicks considering Kwame Brown? Apparently.

    Nov 28, 2011, 10:14 AM EDT

    Kwame Brown

    Free agent priority No. 1 for the Knicks — maintain projected cap space for next summer so they can try to bring in one more star player (cough* Chris Paul *cough). Priority No. 2: find a big defensive minded center, but one will take a one-year deal as not to screw up priority No. 1.…

  11. Noah to sit out Wednesday due to sprained ankle

    Mar 30, 2011, 7:46 PM EDT

    Joakim Noah

    UPDATE 7:46 pm: It’s official, Noah will sit out the game against the Wolves — where he would have been handy against Kevin Love — due to the sprained ankle. Kurt Thomas starts in his place. 2:27 pm: Because God forbid we have all the Bulls players fully healthy for any extended stretch… Joakim Noah…

  12. Carlos Boozer likely out Tuesday, back later in week

    Mar 14, 2011, 6:29 PM EDT

    Carlos Boozer injured

    Carlos Boozer is a cagey veteran, he’d not going to get pinned down into some timeline of when he will come back from a sprained ankle then have to face questions when he doesn’t meet said deadline. Call it Andrew Bynum syndrome. So while Coach Tom Thibodeau was saying he expected Boozer back “probably within…

  13. It’s official, Joakim Noah to play for Bulls Wednesday

    Feb 21, 2011, 7:05 PM EDT

    Image (1) Noah_no1-thumb-250x325-20118.jpg for post 4115

    Joakim Noah told us this was the target date weeks ago, but now it is official. Noah will return when the Bulls take on the Raptors Wednesday, coach Tom Thibodeau confirmed to ESPN Chicago. Nothing shocking here, but it’s not official. The Bulls went 22-8 in the 30 games Noah sat out, but make no…

  14. Carlos Boozer benched in fourth quarter, not sure why

    Jan 6, 2011, 10:05 AM EDT

    Carlos Boozer, Kurt Thomas

    For the entire fourth quarter of a close game Wednesday — a game Chicago lost — Carlos Boozer sat and watched. Coach Tom Thibodeau had benched Boozer, the Bulls second best player. And he was none to pleased about it, as ESPNDallas reports. “You got to talk to Thibs about that,” Boozer said. “That was…

  15. Bulls lose to the Clippers — think they miss Joakim Noah now?

    Dec 20, 2010, 12:25 PM EDT

    Image (1) nba_noah_250.jpg for post 22

    For all of you out there insistent that the Bulls should put Joakim Noah in the offer package for Carmelo Anthony — did you watch your team Saturday? The Bulls lost at home to the Los Angeles Clippers. Yes, those Clippers, who picked up their seventh win of the season that night. Blake Griffin went…

  16. Kurt Thomas goes to Bulls on two-year deal

    Jul 23, 2010, 8:47 AM EDT

    Kurt Thomas will be the veteran big man off the bench in Chicago this season — and just as importantly play the role of mentor. In a nice little pickup, the Bulls and Thomas have agreed to a two-year deal (second being a team option). Thomas slides into the Brad Miller role — 15 minutes…

  17. Trade Deadline: Salmons for Kurt Thomas and Francisco Elson

    Feb 18, 2010, 10:00 AM EDT

    Update 2/18 10:17 am: Reports are now saying that there is some flux on whether the Bulls want Kurt Thomas or Hakim Warrick in combination with Elson. Warrick’s contract is for only $3 million expiring as opposed to Thomas’ $3.8 million expiring. Same basic structure, just a different role and a bit less money. 2/17…
