  2. Report: Leandro Barbosa reaches deal with Warriors

    Aug 28, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Phoenix Suns

    For a third point guard signed for the league minimum, this is a nice pickup. Not thrilling, but nice.

  3. Report: Heat trying to add shooting guard, another big but for veteran minimum

    Aug 20, 2014, 12:09 PM EDT

    Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade

    Miami could use the depth, but at this point the pickings are slim.

  4. Suns’ Leandro Barbosa fractures hand in loss to Clippers

    Mar 5, 2014, 10:14 AM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Denver Nuggets

    With Eric Bledsoe out back in January the Suns turned to Leandro Barbosa to provide a little offensive spark to the second unit. He’s done that somewhat when he’s been healthy, but a series of nagging injuries have slowed him. Now he could be out for a while — Barbosa suffered a fractured left hand…

    The Memphis Grizzlies traded Rudy Gay and reached the Western Conference Finals.

    The 2013 FIBA Americas tournament is taking the day off on Wednesday, but it’s not just because the most star-laden Eurobasket tournament tipped off.

  8. FIBA Americas schedule features Canada vs. Brazil on Sunday

    Sep 1, 2013, 11:30 AM EDT

    Axier Sucre, Diego Bareiro

    The FIBA Americas tournament enters Day 3 on Sunday after a solid first two days of action. Sunday’s games don’t feature the marquee matchups that littered Friday and Saturday, but the first contest of the day should be worth watching. Canada and Brazil are both in the conversation for the Final Four next weekend, a…

    Aug 18, 2013, 11:00 PM EDT

    sports-illustrated-jason-collins-cover

    A report surfaced last week that the Pistons had interest in adding veteran free agent center Jason Collins to the roster as an insurance policy for the team’s two primary big men, Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe. Whatever level of interest there was initially appeared to diminish fairly quickly, as another report surfaced a day later…

  13. Leandro Barbosa’s agent says he has offer from Mavericks

    Jul 20, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Brooklyn Nets

    Leandro Barbosa spend the first half of last season playing a limited role in Boston but he started to see a lot more minutes after Rajon Rondo tore his ACL — then Barbosa tore his ACL (and had some MCL damage). Which means he likely is not ready to play at the start of this…

  14. Report: Raptors to keep Dwane Casey as coach

    Jun 3, 2013, 11:04 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors coach Dwane Casey gestures while watching the Raptors and the Boston Celtics in Toronto

Ujiri wants his people in place. What is not changing is the coach. Despite a rough season last year, Dwane…

  15. Winners and Losers from the Trade Deadline

    Feb 21, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Josh Smith

    A good chunk of trades went down before the trade deadline, but it’s the deals that didn’t get made that loom large. Josh Smith is still an Atlanta Hawk, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce are still Boston Celtics, Dwight Howard is still a Laker, Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap are still on the Jazz…you get…

  17. Boston Celtics acquire Jordan Crawford from Washington Wizards for Leandro Barbosa

    Feb 21, 2013, 2:46 PM EDT

    Jordan Crawford, Iman Shumpert

    Well, anytime you can trade a guy with one functioning ACL for a guy with two, you have to do it. That’s obviously an oversimplification of things, but it’s hard to argue with the logic. The Boston Celtics needed a body in the backcourt, and to get it, they traded a player who was no…

  18. Report: Celtics making trade deadline run at Tyreke Evans. It’s a longshot.

    Feb 21, 2013, 11:57 AM EDT

    Tyreke Evans

    Danny Ainge seems to have a fascination with Tyreke Evans. He’s made some calls in the past but always got the door slammed in his face when he tried. But the Kings seem to have cracked that door open and Ainge wants back in at the trade deadline, tweets Marc Stein of ESPN. Latest word…

  19. Like every other GM right now, Danny Ainge says not to expect a deal

    Feb 19, 2013, 5:25 PM EDT

    Danny Ainge

    If you only believed the public comments of NBA GMs, no trade was ever going to happen in the NBA. To make sure they have some leverage, they all say nothing is likely to happen. They talk but their not interested. Danny Ainge is the king of that — he’s had some conversations about everyone…

    terrence-williams-300x200

    The Celtics have been hit hard with the injury bug lately, losing both Rajon Rondo and Leandro Barbosa for the season to knee injuries. It’s the latter injury, to Barbosa, that has the Celtics exploring their options on the wing, looking for a swingman who could soak up some minutes. It seems the player they’re…

  21. Celtics get good news on Rondo’s knee, bad on Barbosa

    Feb 13, 2013, 1:38 PM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Boston Celtics

    Okay Celtics fans, you want the good news first or the bad? Good, you got it — Rajon Rondo had successful surgery on his knee on Tuesday. Of course, you pretty much never hear a team describe these surgeries any other way — how many successful surgeries has Greg Oden had? — but still this…

    Feb 12, 2013, 4:28 PM EDT

    Doc Rivers, Leandro Barbosa

    The Boston Celtics have been beset by injuries this season — and not to their older, veteran guys but rather to their young studs.

  24. Celtics Leandro Barbosa leaves game with knee injury, it doesn’t look good

    Feb 11, 2013, 11:15 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Charlotte Bobcats

    Ugh. Already without Rajon Rondo for the rest of this season, the Celtics had been counting on more from Leandro Barbosa off the bench. But late in the third quarter he went to the ground with what looked like a pretty bad knee injury. The MRI will be tomorrow, but nobody seems optimistic, reports A.…
