  2. Report: Memphis Grizzlies waive Fab Melo

    Aug 30, 2013, 5:40 PM EST

    2012 NBA Rookie Photo Shoot

    Just a couple weeks ago, Memphis traded the expiring contract of Donte Greene plus sent some cash to Boston for the rights to Fab Melo. Friday they waived Melo, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. Melo was owed $1.3 million this season fully guaranteed, part of his rookie contract. If no team picks ‘Melo up…

  3. New Grizzlies coach Dave Joerger says he’ll play starters less than Lionel Hollins did

    Aug 27, 2013, 4:48 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Four

    The Grizzlies didn’t overly rely on any single player last season. Marc Gasol played 35.0 minutes per game (32nd in the NBA), Mike Conley 34.5 (40th) and Zach Randolph 34.3 (45th). But collectively, Memphis was extremely reliant on its starters Just three other teams – the Warriors, 76ers and Trail Blazers, who had four –…

  4. Celtics trade Fab Melo to Memphis for Donte Greene

    Aug 15, 2013, 1:32 PM EST

    Fab Melo, Earl Clark

    The Fab Melo era that never really got started in Boston is over. The Celtics announced they have traded Melo and some cash to the Grizzlies for Donte Greene. CSNNE.com has confirmed this as well. Why? This is a financial move for the Celtics — Melo was going to make $1.3 million this season, Greene…

  5. Joe Dumars hopes Josh Smith-Greg Monroe-Andre Drummond frontcourt can take cues from Hawks and Grizzlies

    Aug 7, 2013, 6:12 PM EST

    Josh Smith, Andre Drummond

    Which team has the best starting frontcourt in the NBA? Depending on how you value the top player compared to the depth of the trio, there are several contenders including: Nets (Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Brook Lopez) Bulls (Luol Deng, Carlos Boozer, Joakim Noah) Nuggets (Danilo Gallinari, Kenneth Faried, JaVale McGee) Warriors (Andre Iguodala, David…

  6. Report: Mike Miller agrees to play for Memphis Grizzlies

    Jul 24, 2013, 6:39 PM EST

    Heat shooting Mike Miller celebrates after scoring against the Spurs in the second half during their NBA basketball game in Miami

    Memphis needs outside shooting to space the floor, it was painfully obvious during the playoffs (and spare me your Rudy Gay stuff, go look at his jump shooting numbers then move on). Mike Miller was good enough to space the floor for the Miami Heat the last couple years and picked up a couple rings…

  7. Rudy Gay had eye surgery this offseason to correct vision problems

    Jul 22, 2013, 8:29 PM EST

    Rudy Gay

    What makes Rudy Gay divisive is simply he is not a good shooter. He puts up points — career average of 18 a game and 19.5 with the Raptors at the end of last season — but he’s a career 45 percent shooter who hit just 42.5 percent with the Raptors. He shot 32.3 percent…

  8. Lots of interest in Mike Miller, with Durant, Marc Gasol recruiting him

    Jul 20, 2013, 6:30 PM EST

    Heat's Miller reacts after sinking a three point basket against the Mavericks during Game 1 of the NBA Finals basketball series in Miami

    This has been one of the dominant themes of this offseason — good shooters have value. Guys like J.J. Redick and Kyle Korver are getting longer deals (four years) well over the average NBA salary because they are deadeye shooters. Meanwhile, if you dominate the ball and are not an efficient shooter you find the…

  9. Mike Miller clears waivers; Spurs, Thunder, Grizzlies and Rockets reportedly interested

    Jul 18, 2013, 5:43 PM EST

    Miami Heat player Miller laughs as he talks with Wade during a team practice ahead of Game 7 of the NBA Finals basketball playoff against the San Antonio Spurs in Miami

    In the end, neither the Cavaliers nor any other NBA team submitted a waiver claim for Mike Miller, who was amnestied by the Heat two days ago. Marc Stein of ESPN: Mike Miller, I'm told, has cleared waivers and is a free agent — Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) July 18, 2013 I fail to understand why…

  10. Report: Raptors nearing buyout with Marcus Camby, who will receive interest from Clippers, Bulls and Rockets

    Jul 16, 2013, 10:45 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v New York Knicks

    Marcus Camby wasn’t happy to be traded to the Raptors, who tried to flip him before the deal – also involving Andrea Bargnani – ever became official. When that didn’t happen, Camby again expressed his desire for a buyout or trade. Because of his high salary – $4,383,773 next season and $4,177,208 the following year…

  11. Dwight Howard and James Harden could form NBA’s best duo

    Jul 5, 2013, 7:43 PM EST

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers

    Dwight Howard is a center. James Harden is a guard. Howard is one of the NBA’s best defenders. Harden is one of the league’s top offensive players. Howard is an elite interior scorer. Harden’s range extends beyond the 3-point line. Howard is excellent as the screener in pick-and-rolls. Harden is superb as the ball-handler on…

  12. Tony Allen agrees to four-year deal to return to Grizzlies

    Jul 2, 2013, 11:38 PM EST

    Tony Allen

    Over the last few seasons in Memphis, Tony Allen helped transform the Grizzlies from an aimless franchise to one with an identity embraced by both the team and the city alike. Heart, grit, and grind. Allen’s toughness and skill on the defensive end of the floor is every bit as important to what the team…

  13. Report: Grizzlies trade Darrell Arthur to Nuggets for Kosta Koufos

    Jun 27, 2013, 11:26 PM EST

    Kosta Koufos

    One of the reasons (and there were several) that the Nuggets cited when parting ways with head coach George Karl was the fact that they were upset that Karl stubbornly started Kosta Koufos over a player who needed development in JaVale McGee. That won’t be a problem for new coach Brian Shaw, since Denver has…

  14. Report: Grizzlies go the expected route, promote Dave Joerger to head coach

    Jun 25, 2013, 12:45 AM EST

    Dave Joerger

    Memphis built a roster that went all the way to the Western Conference Finals based on consistency and growth — they kept their core together (save for Rudy Gay) and built with those guys improving and growing together. Which is why letting Lionel Hollins walk as a coach is a risk — he and his…

  15. Grizzlies don’t renew Lionel Hollins’ contract

    Jun 10, 2013, 10:16 PM EST

    Lionel Hollins

    UPDATE 10:16 pm: The Grizzlies have made this official with a statement from the team. “After a thorough internal process, which included conversations with Lionel and his representatives, we decided as an organization to move in a different direction,” Grizzlies CEO Jason Levien said in a statement. “On behalf of the Grizzlies organization I would…

  16. Roy Hibbert curses, slips in “no homo” comment in post game interviews

    Jun 2, 2013, 1:29 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Indiana Pacers - Game Six

    On the court in Game 6, Roy Hibbert did just about everything right, which is why there will be a Game 7. Off the court in his post-game interviews, Hibbert did a whole lot wrong. Hibbert both dropped a curse word — then said he didn’t care if he got fined — and followed it…

  17. Tim Duncan reminds you he is very good at basketball (VIDEO)

    May 28, 2013, 1:12 PM EST

    Tim Duncan

    Tim Duncan isn’t an ageless wonder, it’s just that his age doesn’t seem to show. Facing the best front line in the NBA this season — Memphis’ Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph — he was at the heart of the Spurs’ sweep of the Grizzlies. We’ve marveled over the years as players such as Michael…

  18. In impressive sweep, Spurs lay out path for future Grizzlies success

    May 28, 2013, 1:03 AM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Four

    That was impressive, San Antonio. A sweep was just not something anyone saw coming (even those of us who picked the Spurs in the series). Tony Parker was again playing like the guy everyone wanted to put in the MVP conversation mid-season. All series long he would turn the corner off the pick and do…

  19. Preview: What Memphis has to do to extend its season

    May 27, 2013, 3:34 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Three

    Unfortunately Memphis, we know how this movie is going to end. No team in NBA history has ever come back from 3-0 down in a best-of-seven series and the Grizzlies just do not have the firepower to change that trend. But that doesn’t mean the season has to end Monday night. Memphis has taken the…

  20. Tony Parker, Spurs penetration is puzzle Grizzlies can’t solve

    May 26, 2013, 1:54 AM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Three

    Mike Conley tried. Tony Allen had some success, particularly late in the game, but even he was not consistent. Jerryd Bayless and everyone else that tried pretty much got torched. For the third game in a row, Tony Parker’s quickness off the dribble was the thing Memphis really had no answer for, and his penetration…

  21. Mike Conley on verge of stardom as Grizzlies on verge of elimination

    May 26, 2013, 1:39 AM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Three

    Where is the line between the NBA’s stars and the league’s merely good players? Star is such a loaded term – full of reputation and production and marketing and talent and style – that, occasionally, it can be useful to sort through all the distractions and look at objective measures. Let’s examine players in order…

  22. Preview: Did Grizzlies figure out Spurs or will Game 3 be more of the same?

    May 25, 2013, 2:01 PM EST

    Spurs' Parker drives to the net past Grizzlies' Dooling during the second quarter in Game 2 of their NBA Western Conference final playoff basketball series in San Antonio

    There have been seven quarters — 84 minutes — of the Western Conference Finals where the Spurs have looked much the better team. But the last 17 minutes — the fourth quarter and overtime, Memphis erased a 16-point deficit, pushed the game into overtime and made this start to look like the close series we…

  23. LeBron, Durant, Kobe headline All NBA First Team

    May 23, 2013, 1:27 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    Even before the season tipped off you had a pretty good sense that LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Chris Paul would be All-NBA First Team — they are dominant players at or entering their peak. But Kobe Bryant and Tim Duncan continue to defy father time. The two veterans round out the All NBA Team…

  24. Spurs need overtime in Game 2 to beat Grizzlies, take a 2-0 series lead

    May 22, 2013, 1:32 AM EST

    Memphis Grizzlies v San Antonio Spurs - Game Two

    The Spurs looked every bit as dominant through three quarters of Game 2 against the Grizzlies as they did in completing a rout of their opponent in the first game of the series. Memphis couldn’t score, Tony Parker was carving up the Grizzlies’ defense on the way to a career-high 18 assists, and San Antonio…

  25. Spurs/Grizzlies preview: Game 2 will be closer, but will that be enough for Memphis?

    May 21, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Memphis Grizzlies v San Antonio Spurs - Game One

    Game 2 is not going to look like Game 1. Memphis is not going to get its doors blown off from the opening tip as happened in their Game 1 loss. You can expect better pick and roll defense out of Memphis. You can also expect better ball movement and more Zach Randolph. You can…
