  1. Suns’ Channing Frye out indefinitely with enlarged heart

    Sep 20, 2012, 6:54 PM EDT

    Channing Frye

    Heart screening of NBA players is a regular part of their pre-training camp physicals. It is what found Jeff Green’s heart condition that needed surgery last season. A number of other NBA players such as Ronny Turiaf have faced the same thing. Now Suns forward Channing Frye is out indefinitely with an enlarged heart, the…

  2. Video: Blake Griffin is a champion chicken caller (on Sesame Street)

    Sep 20, 2012, 2:09 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v New York Knicks

    Blake Griffin was back on Sesame Street helping teach your children about the word “champion.” And as part of it he acted like a chicken. And when you combine all that there was no chance we were not going to run it. You can insert your own joke about how they didn’t ask Amare Stoudemire…

  3. NBA Season Preview: Boston Celtics

    Sep 19, 2012, 1:58 PM EDT

    Celtics' Garnett talks with Rondo during a time out against Knicks in the second half during their NBA basketball game in New York

    Last season: They went 39-27 and won the Atlantic Division, which was nice but in Boston division titles are not how a team is measured. They handled the Hawks as expected in the first round of the playoffs, then in the second round ran into a plucky but inexperienced Sixers team and Boston won in…

  4. Chris Paul still pissed about Pau Gasol’s pat on the head

    Sep 19, 2012, 12:57 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Gasol looks back at Los Angeles Clippers' Paul during their NBA preseason game in Los Angeles

    First thing: You should go read the entire Chris Paul feature in GQ because it’s a good insight into one of the more grounded NBA superstars you’re going to come across. He is as competitive as Kobe Bryant and Kevin Garnett, but he doesn’t let that fire consume him to the point he doesn’t play…

  5. Grant Hill says what Nash did like going from Duke to North Carolina

    Sep 19, 2012, 11:13 AM EDT

    steve nash-grant hill

    Grant Hill left Phoenix for Los Angeles, but nobody in the Valley of the Sun really holds that against him because he’s going to the Clippers and, while they certainly will be good, nobody really hates them yet. Everyone kind of shrugs at that move west. Steve Nash going from the Suns to the hated…

  6. Winderman: The NBA is too nice. We need some real rivalries.

    Sep 19, 2012, 10:33 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant, LeBron James

    Dwight Howard somehow now is friends with Stan Van Gundy and hopes to eventually be remembered fondly in Orlando. LeBron James returned to Cleveland last season saying he would not rule out perhaps one day again playing for the Cavaliers. Ray Allen took out a full-page ad in Boston to remind Celtics fans how much…

  8. Report: Knicks, Celtics like Kenyon Martin, but money is issue

    Sep 18, 2012, 9:49 AM EDT

    Kenyon Martin

    The Knicks are still looking to add one more backup power forward to the roster, and a lot of Knicks fans look out at the rather barren landscape of available free agents and see Kenyon Martin as the best option. He probably is. And the Knicks fans are not alone in seeing it. But this…

  9. Griffin “excited” about Clippers, says Lakers good on paper

    Sep 17, 2012, 11:21 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v San Antonio Spurs - Game Two

    There was a point at the start of the summer, way back in June, when you could picture the Clippers being better than the Lakers this season. The Lakers were what they were, the Clippers had young pieces like Blake Griffin that should be improving. Then Steve Nash and Dwight Howard happened. And now in…

  10. Eric Gordon says he plans to make Anthony Davis’ life easier

    Sep 17, 2012, 4:47 PM EDT

    Eric Gordon

    Anthony Davis has had it pretty good — first an NCAA title at Kentucky where he was a fantastic player, then being the No. 1 overall pick of the Hornets, then getting to win a gold with Team USA in London where Kobe Bryant and LeBron James kind of took him under their wings. Now,…

  11. Metta World Peace boasts Lakers want to get 73 wins

    Sep 17, 2012, 4:15 PM EDT

    Metta World Peace

    For the Lakers fifth offensive option (if that), Metta World Peace isn’t afraid to do the talking. We told you how he said he didn’t think anybody could get past the Lakers. We’ve shown you his latest boast-filled video. We showed you him on Yo Gabba Gabba. He’s kind of everywhere right now. Then there…

  12. Where in the world will Josh Howard play next?

    Sep 17, 2012, 9:42 AM EDT

    Jazz forward Howard tries to get position on Spurs forward Leonard during their NBA basketball game in San Antonio, Texas

    Matt Barnes got inked but we still have a long list of veteran players out there waiting to sign a deal — Kenyon Martin, Mickael Pietrus, Louis Amundson, Leandro Barbosa, Anthony Tolliver, Darko Milicic. Josh Howard can be added to that list, also. Once a 19.9 points per game scorer for the Mavericks, last season…

  13. The Inbounds: Why players and their agents should consider a franchise’s spending history in free agency decisions

    Sep 17, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    New York Knicks Carmelo Anthony, Amar'e Stoudemire, and Tyson Chandler react to a call in the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Boston Celtics at TD Garden in Boston

    Two and a half weeks ago, Business Week released a study on the “smartest spenders in the NBA.” Kurt talked about the top and bottom ten here. It’s nothing shocking. The Lakers spend really well! The Wizards and Kings spend really badly! Turns out there’s a high correlation between “being a really good team” and…

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Clippers - Game Four

    Matt Barnes is a member of the Los Angeles Clippers. We told you about that yesterday. We’ve also told you that Chris Paul was playing GM and doing the recruiting — the Clippers want to keep Paul happy heading into his free agency and the buzz around the league is he and CAA have been…

  15. Two weeks to training camp… Chris Paul’s teardrop is like a wizard from an 80’s metal animation

    Sep 15, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    The wait is almost over. We’re two weeks and three days from training camp, and the start of the 2012-2013 NBA season. Basketball is almost back. As we get closer we’ll be bringing you reminders of why this game is awesome, what you’ve missed, and what to look forward to. Chris Paul is known for…

  16. Just how much ink does Chris Andersen have? A lot.

    Sep 14, 2012, 6:25 PM EDT

    chris-andersen tattoos

    Right now, Chris Andersen — the Birdman — is trying to find a team that wants to bring him in. He was amnestied by the Nuggets and has yet to find a new home. Like Kenyon Martin and others, he’s finding a dry market where the only offers are for the veteran minimum, and in…

  17. It’s official: Matt Barnes signs with Los Angeles Clippers

    Sep 14, 2012, 4:00 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v San Antonio Spurs

    We told you this was coming and now it is official — Matt Barnes has signed to play with the Los Angeles Clippers this season, the team announced Friday. Getting an athletic player who can defend on the wing for the league minimum is a good signing for the Clippers. While the official terms of…

  18. How Chauncey Billups helped recruit O.J. Mayo to Dallas

    Sep 14, 2012, 2:32 PM EDT

    O.J. Mayo

    O.J. Mayo had some options this summer, none of the long-term deals he was hoping for but there were a few teams calling his agent. One of them was the Dallas Mavericks, where he eventually signed. But one of the key reasons was that Chauncey Billups is a fan of Mavs coach Rick Carlisle. A…

  19. Kenyon Martin has suitors but still wants more than minimum

    Sep 14, 2012, 8:40 AM EDT

    Kenyon Martin

    The phone of Kenyon Martin’s agent is ringing — teams are interested in him. But the offers are all the same — veteran minimum. And for a veteran who played well at times for the Clippers last season (8.9 points and 6.3 rebounds a game), he doesn’t want to play for the minimum anymore. Marc…

  21. The Inbounds: Retro-veterans and the once-and-future rim protector

    Sep 13, 2012, 3:46 PM EDT

    Ben Wallace, Jordan Williams

    In 2006, signing Ben Wallace to a deal would have been in an incredible franchise-changing move to radically alter the outlook of your defense. In 2009, trading for him would have been seen as a desperate and flawed move towards overpaying for an unproductive and underwhelming player. In 2012, it’s a pretty solid move which…

  22. Tracy McGrady worked out for Spurs, Knicks up next

    Sep 13, 2012, 12:47 PM EDT

    Tracy McGrady

    Tracy McGrady is auditioning for jobs.

Still searching for an…

Now comes this tweet from Sam Amick at Sports Illustrated: Source says Matt Barnes has informed the Clippers he will sign with them. Nothing is ever final until ink…

  24. LeBron changing agents, leaving CAA to be repped by friend

    Sep 13, 2012, 2:35 AM EDT

    LeBron James of the 2012 USA Basketball

    Once again, LeBron James is leaning on his childhood friends and moving away from long-time industry professionals to represent him. That hasn’t always led to the best decisions in the past but it is his pattern over the years. LeBron is letting go of Leon Rose and the power of CAA (Creative Artists Agency) —…
