Los Angeles Clippers

  1. Tyreke Evans doesn’t want Kings to match Pelicans’ offer

    Jul 3, 2013, 7:09 PM EDT

    Tyreke Evans, Tobias Harris

    The Sacramento Kings had a max offer on the table for Andre Iguodala, then yanked it. Which is bad form. However, it was a pretty clear sign that the Kings are seriously considering matching the New Orleans offer expected for Tyreke Evans of four years, $44 million. Evans doesn’t want them to match, he wants…

  2. J.J. Redick-Jared Dudley trade might squeeze Chauncey Billups off Clippers

    Jul 2, 2013, 10:26 PM EDT

    Chauncey Billups, Ty Lawson

    Chauncey Billups – when healthy, which wasn’t very often – started at shooting guard for the Clippers the last two years. Now that the Clippers have upgraded their wing positions by trading for J.J. Redick and Jared Dudley, Billups, a free agent, might no longer fit in Los Angeles. Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports:…

  3. Three team trade sends Redick to Clippers, Bledsoe to Suns, picks to Bucks

    Jul 2, 2013, 6:25 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Milwaukee Bucks - Game Three

    The Clippers needed a few things to become serious title contenders in the West. One was a more consistent defense, Doc Rivers has to help handle that (and mature DeAndre Jordan’s game). They also needed a two guard and wings who could stretch the floor — you can check that off the list. This is…

  4. Knicks pursuing Francisco Garcia and Matt Barnes

    Jul 2, 2013, 2:25 PM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony, Francisco Garcia

    The Knicks need another small forward. Chris Copeland is a free agent and could join the Pacers soon. Steve Novak was included in the original Andrea Bargnani trade, and Quentin Richardson was added to the revised version. James White was nearly waived during the season, and he’s probably headed to China. Iman Shumpert might play…

  5. Jose Calderon meeting with Kings, one of many suitors

    Jul 2, 2013, 1:44 PM EDT

    Looks more like football as Toronto Raptors' Calderon races Sacramento Kings' Robinson up the court in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Toronto

    When the Pistons traded for Jose Calderon and his expiring contract, they immediately stressed they didn’t view him as a one-year rental. After years of subpar point guard play since they traded Chauncey Billups, Calderon brought playmaking skills to the position Brandon Knight and Rodney Stuckey couldn’t come close to matching. But Calderon and Andre…

  6. Clippers to meet with O.J. Mayo, Carl Landry on Tuesday

    Jul 2, 2013, 1:00 PM EDT

    O.J. Mayo, Patrick Patterson

    The Clippers re-signing of Chris Paul to a max contract in free agency this summer was only the beginning of their plans to add talent and tweak the roster so that it’s more immediately ready to compete for a championship under new head coach Doc Rivers. The decision of whether or not to trade reserve…

  7. Report: if Rockets don’t land Howard they may chase Josh Smith

    Jul 2, 2013, 10:01 AM EDT

    Josh Smith

    UPDATE 5:01 pm: Talking on Houston Radio today, they said this may not be a plan to have a fallback for Dwight Howard so much as to unite Howard and Smith — offer the Hawks a sign-and-trade with Omer Asik and other pieces or contracts the Rockets want to unload. The Hawks might take that.…

  8. Timberwolves targeting J.J. Redick, want to keep Budinger

    Jul 2, 2013, 9:16 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Dallas Mavericks

    The Minnesota Timberwolves have the flashy Ricky Rubio running the point. They have the versatile Kevin Love in the paint. Both should actually be healthy at the same time next season (*knocks on wood*). What they could really use a two guard to space the floor as a shooter to go with that — Minnesota…

  9. While the Lakers wait on Dwight Howard, they’re pursuing outside shooters for Mike D’Antoni’s system

    Jul 2, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Chicago Bulls

    Dwight Howard is the Lakers’ first (and second and third) priority in free agency. They’ll meet with the big man on Tuesday with the hope that their pitch seals the deal on his return to Los Angeles where he will anchor their franchise and lead them into the post Kobe Bryant era. However, as the…

  10. Reports: Eric Bledsoe trade rumors include Redick, Mayo

    Jul 1, 2013, 6:05 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Milwaukee Bucks - Game Three

    We told you once Chris Paul said he was in for next season the Clippers would get serious about moving Eric Bledsoe. And Chris Paul says he is all in with the Clips. So expect new trade rumors for Bledsoe to start popping up, such as this one from Ramona Shelburne of ESPN Los Angeles:…

  12. Brandan Wright poised to get substantially bigger contract

    Jul 1, 2013, 11:41 AM EDT

    Bradnon Wright

    Just 14 players have ranked in the top 25 for PER in each of the last two seasons: LeBron James, Chris Paul, Dwyane Wade, Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin, Russell Westbrook, Al Jefferson, LaMarcus Aldridge, Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Kobe Bryant, Brandan Wright, Kyrie Irving and Stephen Curry. The 13 highest-paid members of that group, even…

  13. One dozen NBA free agents to watch (not named Howard or Paul)

    Jul 1, 2013, 3:51 AM EDT

    Josh Smith

    Chris Paul is going to stay a Clipper. Dwight Howard is going to do whatever it is Dwight Howard is going to do. But those two are not the only guys who became free agents at the stroke of midnight and we ventured into Monday. Here are a dozen other newly minted free agents worth…

  14. Report: Pistons ready to make Josh Smith a big offer

    Jul 1, 2013, 12:49 AM EDT

    Josh Smith, Andre Drummond

    Joe Dumars has shown he’ll strike quickly to get the players he wants, price be darned. Sometimes, that means getting Chauncey Billups. Other times, the result is Ben Gordon and Charlie Villanueva. Dumars appears to be going full speed ahead to get his man again. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports: Detroit Pistons general manager Joe…

  15. Report: Chris Paul will accept Clippers five-year, $107 million offer

    Jul 1, 2013, 12:37 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    There isn’t a lot of negotiating to do here: Chris Paul is a clear max contract player, the Clippers wanted to keep him and he wanted to stay with the Clippers. So while nothing is formal an official yet, we have confirmation of what we already knew — Chris Paul and the Clippers will aggree…

  16. Andre Iguodala a riskier free agent than meets the eye

    Jun 30, 2013, 8:30 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Denver Nuggets

    Which of these players would you have most liked on your team last season: Andres Nocioni, Baron Davis, Brendan Haywood, Charlie Bell, Chris Mihm, Corey Maggette, Damien Wilkins, Earl Watson, Elton Brand, Fred Jones, Hedo Turkoglu, Joel Przybilla, John Salmons, Lamar Odom, Mehmet Okur, Metta World Peace, Michael Redd, Rashard Lewis, Rasual Butler, Ricky Davis,…

  18. No surprise, Chris Paul’s reps inform teams he’ll re-sign with Clippers

    Jun 30, 2013, 10:01 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    As free agency in the NBA gets set to open at midnight Eastern, one of the top names has taken himself off the market — not that it comes as any surprise. Chris Paul will re-sign with the Clippers, according to a report from Chris Broussard of ESPN.com. Paul’s representatives have told teams “not to…

  19. Report: Raptors also talking to Clippers about Eric Bledsoe

    Jun 29, 2013, 6:32 PM EDT

    DeMar DeRozan

    Once Chris Paul formally signs on the dotted line, it will not be long before Eric Bledsoe is moved. While Doc Rivers may wonder what a CP3/Bledsoe backcourt looks like, there are other holes on this roster and Bledsoe is a key trade piece to fill one. We know the Clippers are talking to the…

    Jun 28, 2013, 3:29 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers Introduce Doc Rivers

    It became one of the talking points of the NBA Draft broadcast — ESPN’s Bill Simmons (a Celtics fan) said Doc Rivers quit on Boston, so when Rivers was asked about that on the broadcast his response was, “I would like to call him an idiot but I’m too classy for that.” Rivers was on…

    Jun 28, 2013, 12:01 PM EDT

    Former NBA basketball player Kidd poses for photographers with Brooklyn Nets player Williams at a news conference in Brooklyn

    Thanks to a blockbuster trade with Boston, next season the Brooklyn Nets will start Deron Williams, Joe Johnson, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Brook Lopez. They will bring Jason Terry off the bench. They will start five former All-Stars and bring a former Sixth Man of the Year off the bench. So can we say…

  24. Danny Ainge isn’t going to coach Celtics, clearly didn’t like Doc leaving

    Jun 25, 2013, 11:31 PM EDT

    Danny Ainge

    Danny Ainge didn’t sound like a happy man. It’s not anything he said directly, just the overall tone of his discussion with the media on Tuesday (which was streamed live) left the impression he thought Doc Rivers would be back to coach the Celtics this year. “We sent him a letter saying that we expected…
