Kwame Brown

  1. Michael Beasley finding a role, groove in Miami

    Dec 2, 2013, 3:49 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Miami Heat

    It is different than 2008 — Michael Beasley didn’t walk into the Heat locker room with the expectations he could be a player to carry the franchise. In 2013 they just needed a solid role player. They are getting that — Beasley has found his groove. In his last 10 games he has averaged 18.1…

  2. Sixers waive Kwame Brown, Darius Morris

    Nov 20, 2013, 6:05 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Dallas Mavericks

    If you’re a team looking for a backup big man to soak up a few minutes in the paint, Kwame Brown is available… not that your team should pick him up. Just saying he’s available. Brown and teammate Darius Morris have been waived by the Philadelphia 76ers, something first reported by Adrian Wojnarowski at Yahoo…

  3. No. 1 pick Anthony Bennett starts season 0-15 shooting through four games

    Nov 5, 2013, 6:04 PM EDT

    Anthony Bennett, Jonas Jerebko

    It’s way, way too early to freak out about this or to use the “B” word. (“Bust.” As your mom used to say get your mind out of the gutter.) That said… Cleveland’s No. 1 overall pick Anthony Bennett is off to a historically rough start of his rookie season. He is 0-of-15 from the…

  4. Brett Brown: 76ers’ have just six NBA players

    Oct 23, 2013, 10:50 AM EDT

    Brett Brown, Daniel Orton

    Many advanced stats, in basketball and other sports, rely on a concept called a replacement player. A replacement player is a hypothetical player who can easily be obtained to fill out the roster. In his definition of an NBA replacement player, Kevin Pelton says a team of replacement players would win 10 games in a…

  5. Sixers sign Daniel Orton for rest of training camp

    Oct 16, 2013, 2:25 PM EDT

    ORTON_DANIEL

    The Philadelphia 76ers are trying to find any kind of big man rotation that might work. And by might work I mean be better than the Kentucky front line, not actually win the Sixers a bunch of games. We shouldn’t sell the solid Spencer Hawes short, and if he eventually pairs with a healthy Nerlens…

  6. Danny Ainge: Not worth tanking for Andrew Wiggins

    Oct 4, 2013, 1:25 PM EDT

    0515_wiggins_0

    Every active No. 1 pick, with the exception of Tim Duncan, who has been in the NBA at least six seasons – Greg Oden, Andrea Bargnani, Andrew Bogut, Dwight Howard, LeBron James, Kwame Brown, Kenyon Martin and Elton Brand –  has changed teams by age 28. It’s an era where teams must kowtow to top…

  7. Sixers’ Arnett Moultrie out until January after ankle surgery

    Sep 27, 2013, 11:20 AM EDT

    Arnett Moultrie, Ben Gordon

    Following up on a rookie season where he played pretty well in a very limited role, Arnett Moultrie was going to get his chance at the start of the year to prove he could be key to the rebuilding Sixers, getting big minutes at the four. Now he is out until the new year following…

  8. Grizzlies GM says Derrick Rose helped influence Pau Gasol trade

    Sep 16, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Rose Calipari Memphis

    Back in 2008, when Memphis traded Pau Gasol to the Lakers for Kwame Brown, Javaris Crittenton, Aaron McKie and the rights to an untested European player in Marc Gasol, Grizzlies GM Chris Wallace was ripped by seemingly everyone. It was said he got nothing for giving up an elite player such as Gasol (who instantly…

  9. Sixers not working to buy out Kwame Brown… yet

    Aug 1, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Rudy Gay, Kwame Brown

    It’s not expected that Kwame Brown will be back with the Sixers next season. Brown picked up his $3 million option to come back to the Sixers this season, because he’s not getting that money anywhere else. Still, it’s been expected that the team would buy out that deal and send him on his merry…

  11. Maryland’s Alex Len could be the No. 1 pick. Why is that?

    Jun 27, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Alex Len, Tahjere McCall, T.J. Cline, Antoine Mason

    Alex Len put up nice but not thrilling stats at Maryland last season — 11.9 points a game on 53.4 percent shooting, with 7.8 rebounds a game. He’s seen as talented but raw. After the season he had surgery on a stress fracture in his ankle, and there are concerns his health issues could be…

  12. Ten prospects NBA fans should watch in NCAA Tournament

    Mar 20, 2013, 2:37 PM EDT

    WCC Basketball Tournament - Championship Saint Mary's v Gonzaga

    We fans place a lot more weight in evaluating players on what they do in the NCAA Tournament than do NBA teams scouting the draft. They have already watched the tape on every game the guy has played this season and likely been to some practices. Then later they will measure him at the combine…

  13. Is the Lakers biggest problem really Kobe Bryant? No.

    Dec 19, 2012, 8:42 PM EDT

    Lakers Bryant reacts after hitting a three-point shot against the 76ers during their NBA game in Philadelphia

    While Steve Nash and Pau Gasol were out, Kobe Bryant has carried the Lakers. He is leading the league with 29.5 points per game, scoring more points per game than he has since before Pau Gasol arrived as a Laker. Back when Kobe had to carry Kwame Brown and Smush Parker (remember they both started).…

  14. Lakers cruise to win over Sixers thanks to an efficient 34 points from Kobe Bryant

    Dec 16, 2012, 9:02 PM EDT

    Lakers' Bryant shoots between the defense of the 76ers' Turner, Richardson and Brown during their NBA basketball game in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

    It’s not often we use the word “efficient” in the same sentence while describing the offensive play of the Lakers’ Kobe Bryant. But in Sunday’s easy 111-98 victory over the Sixers, it was not only appropriate, but it fit the description exactly. Bryant finished with 34 points on 12-of-21 shooting, to go along with four…

  15. Kwame Brown sends Dwight Howard’s shot into the stands (VIDEO)

    Dec 16, 2012, 7:08 PM EDT

    Kwame Brown

    In the matchup at the center position between Kwame Brown and Dwight Howard on Sunday, who would you guess would be the one rejecting the other’s shot by swatting it several rows deep into the stands? Just as we all suspected, it was Kwame who defended Howard perfectly and got the emphatic block early in…

  16. Wednesday And-1 links: Who has the better Eurostep, Wade or Ginobili?

  17. Raptors GM Colangelo talks about not drafting Andre Drummond

    Nov 16, 2012, 6:39 PM EDT

    Andre Drummond

    How much does raw talent versus personality and concerns about work ethic when drafting someone? We all are great at looking back at a draft three or five years later and saying “how did we pass on player X” when at the time it’s not that simple. To use an easy example, any GM that…

  18. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Spurs, Knicks remain undefeated

  20. Andrew Bynum to have another “routine” injection in knee

    Oct 15, 2012, 9:49 AM EDT

    Andrew Bynum

    When it comes to Andrew Bynum’s knees, I’m not sure anything can be considered “routine.” But that is the word the 76ers are using to describe another procedure Bynum is about to have done to his knee. The one with the bone bruise following his last procedure that has kept him out of training camp…

  21. Kobe doesn’t get why Philly paid Kwame Brown so much

    Oct 12, 2012, 1:03 PM EDT

    Kwame-Brown

    This summer, desperate for a center and before they traded for Andrew Bynum, the Philadelphia 76ers reached a deal with Kwame Brown. He makes $2.8 million this year, $2.9 next season if Brown picks up his player option. Which he will. So Kwame Brown will pocket just shy of $6 million. A lot of people…

  22. Smush Parker says he stopped passing Kobe Bryant the ball

    Oct 12, 2012, 9:12 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Los Angeles Lakers

    Kobe Bryant reverted to one of his favorite past times the other day, smacking around Smush Parker like his own personal piñata. He said Smush shouldn’t have been in the NBA but the Lakers were cheap and “let him walk on.” Which is how it felt. But Smush — playing in China the past couple…

  23. Kobe doesn’t really miss Smush Parker, Kwame Brown

    Oct 11, 2012, 12:46 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Los Angeles Lakers

    Kobe Bryant sounds like a professional poker player here — even guys sitting around wearing World Series of Poker bracelets will remember and talk about their bad beats more eagerly than their tournament wins. Kobe has spent his career playing with Shaquille O’Neal, Glenn Rice, Robert Horry, Pau Gasol, and now Steve Nash and Dwight…

  24. NBA Season Preview: Philadelphia 76ers

    Philadelphia 76ers introduce Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson

    Today 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. First up, your Philadelphia 76ers. Last season: They were a slightly better than .500 team (35-31) that played great defense…

  25. Winderman: CBA rules grind NBA player movement to a halt

    Aug 23, 2012, 10:23 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Sacramento Kings

    Donte Greene to the Nets, Martell Webster to the Wizards . . . If it seems like the NBA is in a bit of a personnel limbo, it is because, well, it is. For as much as the floodgates open with the July start of free agency, and for as much as things can change…
