  1. What would Team USA under-23 Olympic team look like?

    Jun 15, 2012, 7:37 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant, Team USA

    David Stern wants it. Mark Cuban wants it. Most of his fellow NBA owners want it. At his pre-finals press conference, David Stern again said he wants the Olympic basketball program to start following the soccer model — under-23. There would be one World Cup every four years with no age restrictions, but the Olympics…

  2. Video: Kobe, Griffin, Rose pimp NBA 2K13

    michael-jordan-nba-2k12

    It’s not going to be easy to top NBA 2K12 and the throwback teams, but I’ll speak for all of us in saying I can’t wait to hear what is coming in NBA 2K13. This new promo spot for the game doesn’t really tell us much about the game itself, but it does remind us…

  3. Report: Ray Allen leaning Heat, Clippers if he leaves Celtics

    Jun 13, 2012, 12:38 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics - Game Six

    It could happen, but it just doesn’t feel to me like Ray Allen will return to the Celtics. Things are changing there. Avery Bradley stole his starting job and he is not giving it up. The Celtics (even if they bring back Kevin Garnett) are going to start to transition to the future. Would Allen…

  4. Report: List down to three for Orlando Magic GM post

    Jun 12, 2012, 11:56 AM EDT

    Image (1) new-orlando-magic-logo-thumb-250x179-13629.jpg for post 6226

    No pressure Orlando, no need to rush. Not like you have any big decisions ahead. The Orlando Magic search for a general manager — which will be followed by the search for a coach, which will be followed by deciding what to do about Dwight Howard — is down to three people, tweets Adrian Wojnarowski…

  5. Clippers put together list of GM candidates (willing to work cheap)

    Jun 11, 2012, 2:13 PM EDT

    Vandeweghe

    The Clippers are on the hunt for a new general manager. One they said they’d reached a deal with in principle when clearly they hadn’t. Now we know why — Neil Olshey made the same decision you, I or any sane person would have. Broderick Turner did some digging for the Los Angeles Times and…

  6. Report: Kings not likely to offer Tyreke Evans extension

    Jun 8, 2012, 11:35 AM EDT

    Kenneth Faried, Tyreke Evans

    This summer, everyone from the 2009 NBA Draft class is eligible to have their rookie contract extension. For a guy like No. 1 overall pick Blake Griffin it’s a no-brainer. It’s a no-brainer for No. 2 pick Hasheem Thabeet, too, just for a very different reason. But what about Tyreke Evans? The Sacramento rookie of…

  7. Report: Clippers looking at Kiki Vandeweghe as GM

    Jun 6, 2012, 2:47 PM EDT

    Vandeweghe

    If you have wondered what Kiki Vandeweghe has been up to since leaving the Denver Nuggets the answer is he’s been a pre/post game analyst for Clippers games on Fox Sports West in Los Angeles. So it shouldn’t be a shock to see his name come up in regards to the Clippers suddenly vacant GM…

  8. Someone likely makes run at Asik, but Bulls will match

    Jun 5, 2012, 5:32 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Two

    Quality big men are at a premium in the NBA and so any time one comes on the market teams have to overpay to keep them. See DeAndre Jordan‘s contract. It will not be that rich, but the same principle is in play with the the Bulls this summer and Omer Asik. The Turkish big…

  9. Penny Marshall apparently scammed by guy claiming to be Odom’s assistant

    Jun 5, 2012, 2:59 PM EDT

    Celebrities At The Lakers Game

    Penny Marshall is a regular at Staples Center, a basketball fan there for Lakers and Clippers games. She’s been there for years and every staff person there will tell you how genuine and nice she is. I don’t know about that — she did cut me off once to get to the self-serve ice cream…

  10. Clippers GM change not expected to change Griffin situation

    Jun 5, 2012, 10:47 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Seven

    Whoever gets brought in to replace Neil Olshey as general manager of the Los Angeles Clippers has one big job — make Chris Paul happy. Paul can leave as a free agent next summer and the GM has to keep him happy and get him to commit to LA. That means get him players to…

  11. It wasn’t about money, GM Olshey chose Portland over L.A.

    Jun 5, 2012, 8:46 AM EDT

    Neil Olshey

    When the Clippers — with general manager Neil Olshey at the helm —acquired Chris Paul, I kept saying that the only thing that could really screw them up now was owner Donald Sterling. With the excitement and winning on the court, we tend to think the Clippers as an organization have changed — they are…

  12. Sudden reversal: GM Olshey leaving Clippers for Trail Blazers

    Jun 4, 2012, 9:13 PM EDT

    Neil Olshey

    This was a fast 360. First rumors circulated that Clippers general manager Neil Olshey had met with Trail Blazers owner Paul Allen about that franchise’s open general manager’s position. The Clippers responded by talking to Olshey and announcing last week they had reached a “deal in principle” with him to stay in Los Angeles. But…

  13. Report: Dallas may make futile run to get Roy Hibbert

    Jun 4, 2012, 4:44 PM EDT

    Roy Hibbert

    Dallas has apparently learned a valuable lesson — having a big shot-blocking center in the paint is very important if you are into the whole “winning a title” thing. They missed Tyson Chandler, so they may make a run at Pacers center free agent Roy Hibbert. Even though they will not get him. This from…

  14. Thunder-Spurs Game 5: San Antonio needs to find its offense

    Jun 4, 2012, 2:27 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game Four

    San Antonio needs to find its offense to win Game 5 tonight, or this series will be over in a couple days. It falls to the Spurs’ big three — Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili need to get free and penetrate the lane to break down the Thunder defense, Tim Duncan just has to play…

  15. When the process matters: Why Charlotte should trade the No.2 pick

    Jun 3, 2012, 7:00 PM EDT

    Image (1) bobcats_logo-thumb-250x182-19284.jpg for post 3934

    Let’s start off with some instant rebuttal to the premature outcry that headline above is going to muster. First, the basics. The Charlotte Bobcats, in a continuing pattern regarding their awful, horrendous, terrible franchise history, lost the lottery’s No.1 pick despite a 1-in-4 chance to land Anthony Davis. The Bobcats are an awful, awful basketball…

  16. The New Orleans Hornets and a matter of serendipity, not conspiracy

    Jun 2, 2012, 12:30 PM EDT

    Dell Demps

    Maybe they’re right. Maybe the league, in the face of unfathomable depths of reason to avoid the concept like the plague (which I have outlined here), really did rig the 2012 NBA Lottery in order to help the Hornets after a rough year, or dot the i’s on the sale of the team to Tom…

  17. Thunder-Spurs Game 4: Let’s get serious

    Jun 2, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Manu Ginobili, Kendrick Perkins

    Seriously, this is the most serious of seriousness. This is the business. This game is monstrous. All those games before that were big? No, this one is big. BIG. Like, those commercials big. Thunder-Spurs Game 4 is going to have dramatic ramifications either way. If the Spurs win, the Thunder’s Game 3 win is meaningless…

  18. Clippers reach “agreement in principle” to keep GM Olshey

    Jun 1, 2012, 11:03 PM EDT

    Neil Olshey

    Every time there has been a general manager vacancy lately, it seems Clippers’ Neil Olshey’s name has come up. With good reason. Not only did he stick with it and pull off the trade for Chris Paul, before that he had taken steps to change the culture in the Clippers locker room and build around…

  19. Friday And-links: Brandon Roy to the Lakers? Doubt it.

    Jun 1, 2012, 5:12 PM EDT

    Brandon Roy

    Here is our daily look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points. •  There are no shortage of rumors that Brandon Roy wants to make a…

  20. Anthony Davis who? Hornets’ Gordon going to test free agent market

    May 31, 2012, 7:34 PM EDT

    Eric Gordon

    Eric Gordon was the centerpiece of the guys coming back to New Orleans in the Chris Paul trade. Gordon has flown under the NBA radar somewhat, but he is the best young two-guard in the game and is a building block for the Hornets future. So he has to be excited about New Orleans winning…

  21. Hornets, Warriors Draft Lottery winners. Nets lose. Again.

    May 30, 2012, 9:24 PM EDT

    YouTube 2012 Upfronts Presentation

    In a draft lottery that stayed to form — the only shift was New Orleans from fourth to first — there are still winners. And there are still losers. The only difference is it is based more on what you did going into the draft then the luck of the ping-pong balls. If you gambled…

  22. New Orleans Hornets win NBA Draft Lottery, rights to Anthony Davis

    May 30, 2012, 8:33 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v New Orleans Hornets

    Tom Benson is a good luck charm for New Orleans. He is in the process of buying the struggling Hornets franchise to keep the NBA’s smallest market from losing its team — now the biggest star to come out of college in years is headed there. The New Orleans Hornets have won the NBA Draft Lottery.…

  23. Clippers to retain Vinny Del Negro as coach next season

    May 29, 2012, 5:11 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Clippers - Game Four

    Vinny Del Negro — who oversaw arguably the best Clippers season ever but left lingering doubts about whether he could take them any farther — will get a chance to prove he can. The Clippers announced Tuesday that they have picked up the option year on Del Negro’s contract. Chris Paul signed off on this,…

  24. Tuesday And-1 links: Derek Fisher has no plans to retire

    May 29, 2012, 3:35 PM EDT

  25. Report: Clippers GM Olshey interviews with Trail Blazers

    May 29, 2012, 12:34 PM EDT

    Neil Olshey

    The rumor has been the Portland Trail Blazers first choice to fill their permanent general manager seat is one current GM from Los Angeles. But this is not the one we were thinking of. From the twitter of Ken Berger of CBSSports.com. Also, league sources say Clippers GM Neil Olshey met with Portland owner Paul…
