  1. Report: Clippers, Mavericks talking Lamar Odom trade

    Jun 27, 2012, 1:51 AM EDT

    Lamar Odom

    Lamar Odom back with the Clippers? Well, he wants to go somewhere he is comfortable and Los Angeles is that. And he wants to play for a team that could go deep in the playoffs, and the Clippers are that. Or, the Clippers could just buy him out and save some cash. But the Clippers…

  2. Blake Griffin, Kevin Durant, Derrick Rose on NBA 2K13 cover

    Jun 26, 2012, 1:40 PM EDT

    NBA 2K13 cover

    In the dog days of summer that are coming — after the NBA draft, after free agency winds down, after Summer League, after the Olympics — we will be left without basketball for a couple of months. That’s when we end up thinking and playing a lot more NBA 2K12 and thinking about NBA 2K13.…

  3. How much better does Anthony Davis make the Hornets?

    Jun 26, 2012, 11:27 AM EDT

    Final Four - Louisville v Kentucky

    In our instant world — where we can download almost any song ever written in seconds, where even our oatmeal is instant — we don’t like to wait for things. If it takes more than three clicks I’m frustrated. But building an NBA team to contention is an exercise in patience. Well, except in Miami.…

  4. Just a reminder, teams can use amnesty for week staring July 11

    Jun 25, 2012, 1:48 PM EDT

    Metta World Peace

    There are a whole lot of interesting amnesty clause questions out there this season — will the Heat use it on Mike Miller? Will the Lakers use it on Metta World Peace? How quickly will the Suns use it on Josh Childress? Here is a quick reminder of how the Amnesty Clause works. • Teams…

  5. Report: Hornets will match any offer for Eric Gordon

    Jun 23, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Phoenix Suns

    One of the ways people found to discredit the Hornets’ trade of Chris Paul to the Clippers (as opposed to trading him to the Lakers for three old guys, one of whom is a space cadet) was the question of Eric Gordon‘s free agency. Either he wasn’t good enough as a return trade piece, or…

  6. Which teams could crash the Thunder/Heat finals next year?

    Jun 22, 2012, 1:47 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat - Game Five

    These finals didn’t feel like a one-time thing. One year from now the Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder could well be back on the NBA’s biggest stage. This is a budding rivalry. Between LeBron James and Kevin Durant. Between the flashy East Coast city and the solid Midwestern city. Miami’s stars are in their…

  7. Is Andre Drummond sliding down draft boards?

    Jun 21, 2012, 1:17 PM EDT

    Uconn's Drummond fights for the ball as Syracuse's C.J. Fair and Fab Melo defend during their game at the 2012 Big East men's NCAA college basketball tournament at Madison Square Garden in New York

    There’s no doubt that if Andre Drummond can put it all together — he has the size, the athleticism, he can defend and rebound — he could be one of the better big men in the NBA in a few years. You could have said the same thing about Andray Blatche. It is that concern…

  8. Kobe Bryant still king of international NBA jersey sales

    Jun 21, 2012, 10:35 AM EDT

    kobe-game-3-nuggets

    Kobe Bryant is still the biggest brand in the NBA. Others are in line for his crown, but if you want to use an NBA star to sell shoes or soft drink or whatever internationally, Kobe is the gold standard. And he can sell jerseys, too. The league announced the top NBA jersey sales internationally…

  9. 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…

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

    Jun 14, 2012, 3:12 PM EDT

    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…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

  15. 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…

  16. 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…

  17. 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…

  18. 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…

  19. 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…

  20. 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…

  21. 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…

  22. 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…

  23. 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…

  24. 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…

  25. 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…
