Los Angeles Clippers

  1. Nick Young reaches deal to come to Philadelphia

    Jul 6, 2012, 11:17 AM EDT

    Nick Young shirt

    Well Doug Collins, now you have an unrepentant gunner on your roster. Nick Young has reached an agreement to become a Philadelphia 76er, his agent Mark Bartelstein told Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo sports (and since confirmed my multiple other sources). It is a one-year, $6 million deal. Which frankly is a bit more than I…

  2. Eric Gordon says he wants to be a Sun. Hornets don’t care, will match offer.

    Jul 6, 2012, 9:03 AM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Phoenix Suns

    Eric Gordon wants to play his basketball in Phoenix next year and made that clear again Thursday. Tough…um, cookies. He will be a Hornet next season playing in New Orleans. His wishes are irrelevant — he is a restricted free agent and New Orleans has said it will match any offer he gets. And that…

  3. For Mavericks, it is better to have swung for fences and missed than not swung at all

    Jul 5, 2012, 9:58 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks owner Cuban reacts during the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Los Angeles Clippers in Dallas

    Mark Cuban took a risk, and he knew what could happen. He did his best Dave Kingman impression — he swung for the fences, not fearing the strike out. On one level this looks like a disaster of a summer for Dallas — no Deron Williams then no Steve Nash and no real shot at…

  4. Report: Clippers reach deals with Jamal Crawford, Chauncey Billups

    Jul 5, 2012, 2:26 PM EDT

    jamal-crawford-blazers-clippers

    The battle for Los Angeles games next year are going to be amazing. And we could see those battles deep in the playoffs. The Clippers addressed a key need Thursday by reaching a three-year agreement with Jamal Crawford, reports the Los Angeles Times. At the same time they reached a deal to bring back injured…

  5. Steve Nash traded to Lakers for package of picks

    Jul 4, 2012, 8:39 PM EDT

    Steve Nash Kobe Bryant

    The Los Angeles Lakers just lost out on getting Chris Paul just before last season, but it looks like they now have the point guard that turns them into a contender again. They are now the West Coast superstar team to compete with the Miami Heat. Multiple sources say the Suns have come to a…

  6. Clippers meet with Jamal Crawford, scheduled to meet with Ray Allen next

    Jul 4, 2012, 2:14 PM EDT

    jamal-crawford-blazers-clippers

    The Clippers’ plans in free agency are fairly simple, and make a lot of sense to anyone who watched them last season: Upgrade the outside shooting to open things up for Chris Paul and Blake Griffin to do what they do inside. The team took steps in that direction on Tuesday by bringing in Jamal…

  7. Report: Knicks working hard to land Nash, but hesitant to give up Iman Shumpert

    Jul 4, 2012, 12:50 PM EDT

    nash-knicks

    Steve Nash is an unrestricted free agent who is being courted at the moment by at least four teams: the Knicks, Raptors, Mavericks, and Lakers. Conspicuously absent from that list are the Suns, but all signs show that they’re ready to move on, and won’t come up with the money or the years that others are…

  8. Williams, bold moves make Nets a fun team… for now

    Jul 4, 2012, 2:19 AM EDT

    Deron Williams, "Jay-Z" Sean Corey Carter , Beyonce Knowles

    The Brooklyn Nets are a much better team right now than they were 72 hours ago. They will walk onto the court at the Barclays Center with an entertaining lineup, a team with offensive firepower, something you couldn’t really say about the squad last seen in New Jersey (they move to Brooklyn this fall). They…

  9. Anthony Davis’ ankle injury not that bad, will attend Team USA camp

    Jul 3, 2012, 11:59 PM EDT

    2012 NBA Draft

    The initial reports did not sound good, but sometimes injuries are not as bad as they first appear. Anthony Davis’ ankle injury was not as severe as first reported and he will attend the USA Basketball Olympic training camp in Las Vegas starting later this week, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports and the NBC…

  10. Winderman: Dallas blew it all up for this?

    Jul 3, 2012, 9:40 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks' Nowitzki walks off the court during a timeout against the Oklahoma City Thunder during their NBA Western Conference quarter-final playoff basketball game in Dallas

    The Mavericks blew it up for this? To finish as runner-up for Deron Williams? The Mavericks put aside one of Dirk Nowitzki‘s precious few quality remaining seasons on the promise of potential hope? Yes, the Mavericks still could recover next summer, if Chris Paul doesn’t reach a new deal with the Clippers, if Dwight Howard…

  11. Report: Reggie Evans headed to Brooklyn in sign-and-trade

    Jul 3, 2012, 4:16 PM EDT

    Reggie Evans

    Clippers fans are not going to like this. Reggie Evans, and his physical play and flopping, became a Clippers fan favorite over the course of season. But multiple reports now have him gone from Los Angeles headed to Brooklyn. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports and the NBC Sports Network broke the report. Brooklyn is finalizing…

  12. Report: Lakers willing to offer Bynum, World Peace for Howard, if he will stay in L.A.

    Jul 3, 2012, 2:29 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Los Angeles Lakers

    Dwight Howard still has some leverage over in where he gets traded. Not because the Magic give a rat’s a** what he wants, if they could trade him to a team from Siberia in the Russian league they would do it. Rather it’s because he can walk away as a free agent next summer from…

  13. Ray Allen chase involves Celtics, Heat, Clippers, Grizzlies

    Jul 3, 2012, 9:45 AM EDT

    Ray Allen, Nick Young

    Ray Allen may be 36 and have to have off-season ankle surgery after fighting through bone spurs all playoffs long, but that’s not slowing teams down much. The chase for Ray Allen seems to be a four team race, reports David Aldridge of NBA.com — Boston, Memphis, Clippers, Miami. It really comes down to what…

  14. Clippers ready offers to Jamal Crawford, Chauncey Billups

    Jul 3, 2012, 8:02 AM EDT

    Jamal Crawford

    The Clippers need a two guard who can help them diversify their offense (we saw what happened when the Spurs stifled Chris Paul in the playoffs, it wasn’t pretty). Jamal Crawford can do that, even if last year’s Crawford should not be confused with the Sixth Man of the Year version. On another note, Paul…

  15. Kobe, LeBron lead list of nine who secured berths on Team USA

    Jul 2, 2012, 11:24 PM EDT

    Olympics Day 16 - Basketball

    There are no surprises — did you think Kobe Bryant or LeBron James were going to be left off the team? —  but now we know nine of the 12 players who will represent the United States in the London Olympic basketball tournament. USA Basketball president Jerry Colangelo laid it out for Chris Tomasson of…

  16. Long shot Odom pulls self out of Olympic consideration; Lin leaves USA Select Team

    Jul 2, 2012, 8:32 PM EDT

    Tribeca/ESPN Sports Film Festival  Gala: Benji - 2012 Tribeca Film Festival

    He was a long shot anyway after the disaster of a season he just had, but Lamar Odom — who had an invite to Team USA Training Camp — is dropping out of consideration. Via the only other national media member that went to my high school, ESPNLosAngeles’ Arash Markazi, on twitter: Lamar Odom tells…

  17. Report: Anthony Davis severely sprains ankle, out of Olympics

    Jul 2, 2012, 1:09 PM EDT

    Draft Hornets Basketball

    And Team USA loses another potential big man for the roster. Recent No. 1 pick Anthony Davis severely sprained his ankle in a workout for the Hornets, which leaves him very unlikely to be ready when USA Basketball opens training camp Friday (July 6) in Las Vegas and he is now out for the games,…

  18. Free Agency Rundown 7.1.12: The movers, they are a shaking

    Jul 1, 2012, 10:31 PM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v Atlanta Hawks

    Here’s what’s going on with free agency news and rumors as the moratorium period began Sunday night at 12:01 a.m..Do not, by any means, consider this comprehensive. There’s so much going on, we’re just trying to get you an overview. (HT: Hoopshype, IAmAGM.com) Atlanta Hawks Well, for starters, they’re exploring a deal for Joe Johnson…

  19. Chris Paul declines Clippers extension offer. It’s just business.

    Jul 1, 2012, 12:29 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Charlotte Bobcats

    This was more like the opening gambit of a chess game — it played out exactly to form, with the real moves that matter still to come. The Clippers have offered Chris Paul a max extension to his deal, a three-year, $60 million offer, reports Chris Broussard of ESPN (multiple sources reported before Friday that…

  20. Clippers to quickly, quietly sign Blake Griffin to 5-year max extension

    Jun 30, 2012, 3:59 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    This is about as much of a surprise as Tom Cruise burning through another marriage. The Clippers top July 1 free agent priority will be signing star forward Blake Griffin to a max extension to his rookie deal. And it sounds like that is going to happen no problem, reports Ramona Shelburne at ESPNLosAngeles.com. The…

  21. NBA, union reach deal on Bird rights that is win for Knicks

    Jun 29, 2012, 8:09 PM EDT

    Injured New York Knicks guard Jeremy Lin reacts during pregame ceremonies before the Knicks play against the Miami Heat in Game 2 of their first round NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoffs in Miami

    This gets complex but here is the bottom line for Knicks fans — you can re-sign Jeremy Lin now and still have your mid-level exception to chase free agents such Steve Nash or Ray Allen this summer. Remember last week that an arbitrator ruled in favor of the union — who filed on behalf of Lin,…

  22. Mo Williams makes it official: He’s headed to Utah, Odom to Clippers

    Jun 29, 2012, 6:31 PM EDT

    Lamar Odom Clippers

    We told you last night just as the draft was ramping up this is how it would go down — Dallas was trading Lamar Odom to the Los Angeles Clippers, the Clippers were sending Mo Williams to Utah, and Dallas was saving a lot of cash. The catch was Williams had to pick up his…

  23. Chris Bosh pulls name from Olympic consideration

    Jun 29, 2012, 12:58 PM EDT

    Chris Bosh USA

    Team USA takes another blow to its front line. Chris Bosh played through an injury to beat Boston and win an NBA championship, but he never fully recovered from his abdominal strain that had him out for nine games of the playoffs. To recover from that, he has pulled his name from consideration for the…

  25. Draft trade: Tyler Zeller traded to Cavaliers for three picks

    Jun 28, 2012, 9:35 PM EDT

    NCAA Basketball Tournament - Kansas v North Carolina

    The first trade of the draft moves a reliable big man to Cleveland, where he ideally can provide some balance to what the Cavs hope is a dynamic back court. Dallas, they get a few more picks. The first trade of a quiet NBA Draft night (relative to what was expected) has Dallas selecting then…
