  1. Why the Lakers shouldn’t re-sign their role players to one-year contracts

    Jun 23, 2014, 12:02 PM EDT

    Chris Paul, Xavier Henry

    By the way, Lakers and Xavier Henry both want him to stay in Los Angeles next season

  2. D’Antoni didn’t know draft lottery implications for Lakers after win over Jazz

    Apr 15, 2014, 8:01 PM EDT

    Mike D'Antoni

    Mike D’Antoni had no idea how beating the Jazz on Monday would negatively impact his team’s Draft Lottery chances. And there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that.

  3. Pau Gasol to return, start for Lakers Tuesday vs. Portland next to Chris Kaman

    Apr 1, 2014, 2:58 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Los Angeles Lakers

    Remember when Mike D’Antoni just played small and forced you to adjust to him? He doesn’t have the horses for that in Los Angeles so he will go big against Portland with Pau Gasol retuning and starting next to Chris Kaman.

  4. Lakers lose Jordan Farmar for two weeks with groin injury. Ugh.

    Mar 18, 2014, 5:38 PM EDT

    jordan farmar

    Okay basketball gods, you have exacted your pound of flesh from the Lakers this season. They already are eliminated from the playoffs, they have lost more man games to injury than any other team. They have been embarrassed. You can back off now. Except they are not. Jordan Farmar will be out for at least…

  5. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Miami putting its foot down on the gas

    Mar 3, 2014, 3:43 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks

    The PBT power rankings have returned with not a lot of change from last week — Miami, Indiana, San Antonio and Oklahoma City are the top four (in whatever order you wish) then there is a gap to the Clippers, Rockets and teams trying to knock on that door. Meanwhile the Sixers look like they…

  6. Pau Gasol questions Lakers discipline after loss to Pacers

    Feb 26, 2014, 9:31 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    It’s obviously been a bit of a rough season for the Lakers, and especially so for Pau Gasol. Gasol was once again embroiled in what have been seemingly annual trade talks, only to see him remain with the team now that the deadline has passed. He’s been injured off and on, though not to the…

  7. Lakers to be without Nick Young for at least two games

    Feb 25, 2014, 12:50 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Los Angeles Lakers

    The Lakers have a tough two game road trip — Indiana and Memphis — and now they have to do it without their second leading scorer and a primary shot creator. Nick Young, who has been playing through knee pain for weeks, will not join the Lakers on the trip, he told Mark Medina of…

  8. NBA Trade Deadline Tracker: All the trades, rumors, analysis, fun in one place

    Feb 20, 2014, 3:00 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Brooklyn Nets

    It’s the one day on the NBA calendar you know is going to be like a roller coaster — rumors are going to fly, deals are going to appear close then fall apart, complete fabrications will fascinate a fan base who will then blame a GM for not making them reality, and in the end…

  9. Lakers trade Steve Blake to Warriors

    Feb 19, 2014, 9:50 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Sacramento Kings

    With the Lakers season having spun so far out of control that all has essentially become lost in Los Angeles, there’s no reason for them to hold onto anything remotely resembling an asset that the team isn’t committed to keeping beyond this season. Steve Blake (when healthy) has been more than serviceable at the guard…

  10. Keith Bogans ‘excused’ from team activities with Celtics

    Jan 15, 2014, 11:28 PM EDT

    Keith Bogan

    Keith Bogans is a veteran playing in his 11th NBA season, and as such, isn’t exactly thrilled to be riding the bench as part of a rebuilding situation with the Boston Celtics. Bogans vented publicly and extensively a couple of weeks back about his role with the team, and while it was viewed as nothing…

  11. Report: Warriors add Jordan Crawford for guard depth in three-team trade with Celtics, Heat

    Jan 15, 2014, 12:28 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics Jordan Crawford goes up for the jump shot in front of Toronto Raptors John Lucas III in Toronto

    Golden State has been looking to add depth behind Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson all season — the offense has been down just slightly this season, and Warriors missed the spark Jarrett Jack brought off the bench last season (not to mention wanting to get Curry some reduced minutes in the second half of the…

  12. Keith Bogans frustrated by lack of playing time this season with Celtics

    Jan 2, 2014, 8:21 PM EDT

    Keith Bogan

    Keith Bogans may not be a household name in the NBA, but in recent years he’s become a serviceable veteran that a team could trust on the floor for around 19 minutes per contest. Bogans appeared in 74 games for the Nets a season ago, and started in 23 of them. He was included in…

  13. Boston’s Keith Bogans out indefinitely with sprained thumb

    Oct 14, 2013, 4:20 PM EDT

    Keith Bogan

    Keith Bogans wasn’t going to factor big in Boston’s plans this season. He is the veteran “3-and-D” guy on the wing but the Celtics plan to play get their young guys experience there — Jordan Crawford (who has had a nice preseason) and MarShon Brooks there. Plus, they have Gerald Wallace to be the veteran…

  14. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: The Boston Celtics

    Sep 17, 2013, 8:43 AM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Boston Celtics

    Last season: For the first half of the season Boston — with veterans like Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce — looked like that team everyone wants to avoid in the first round. Remember, the year before they had taken Miami seven games in the Eastern Conference Finals. Maybe this version of the Celtics wasn’t going…

  15. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: The Brooklyn Nets

    Sep 16, 2013, 8:43 AM EDT

    Newly acquired Net's Pierce, Garnett and Terry hold up their new jerseys as they pose for a photo with principal owner Prokhorov after a news conference in Brooklyn

  16. MarShon Brooks working on attacking off dribble, finishing

    Aug 23, 2013, 5:08 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Chicago Bulls - Game Three

    For his first couple seasons in the NBA, MarShon Brooks has been a potentially dynamic scoring guard who doesn’t score quite as well as you would hope. He didn’t finish all that well at the rim (a mediocre 62 percent in the restricted area) and he shot 32 percent from the midrange and 27 percent…

  17. Nets, Celtics officially complete trade sending Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to Brooklyn

    Jul 12, 2013, 2:29 PM EDT

    Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce

    The Nets and Celtics have officially completed their blockbuster trade that sends Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to Brooklyn. Because this detail had so many reported iterations, here are the final terms: The Brooklyn Nets have acquired Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Jason Terry and D.J. White from the Boston Celtics in exchange for Gerald Wallace,…

  18. Celtics GM Danny Ainge: “We are not tanking”

    Jul 1, 2013, 4:50 PM EDT

    Danny Ainge

    Define tanking. How you choose to do that will determine if you think the Boston Celtics are tanking. They certainly are rebuilding after they shipped out Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to Brooklyn for a package of three first round picks, the talented young MarShon Brooks, and the anchor contracts of Kris Humphries (one year,…

  19. Report: Celtics to receive MarShon Brooks in deal with Nets, Reggie Evans stays in Brooklyn

    Jun 28, 2013, 1:04 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Chicago Bulls - Game Three

    One of the criticisms of the Celtics in their deal that will send Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce to the Nets was that aside from the future first round picks, there wasn’t a lot of young talent immediately coming back in return. Boston was set to receive Gerald Wallace (with three years and over $30…

  20. Are the Brooklyn Nets contenders now? Let’s not get ahead of ourselves.

    Jun 28, 2013, 12:01 PM EDT

    Former NBA basketball player Kidd poses for photographers with Brooklyn Nets player Williams at a news conference in Brooklyn

    Thanks to a blockbuster trade with Boston, next season the Brooklyn Nets will start Deron Williams, Joe Johnson, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Brook Lopez. They will bring Jason Terry off the bench. They will start five former All-Stars and bring a former Sixth Man of the Year off the bench. So can we say…

  21. Draft rumor roundup: Can Cleveland find a taker for the No. 1 pick?

    Jun 25, 2013, 9:15 AM EDT

    Jarnell Stokes, Willie Cauley-Stein, Nerlens Noel

    Here is a quick roundup of some NBA Draft rumors floating around Tuesday morning: • The Cleveland Cavaliers are still shopping the No. 1 pick around and trying to trade out of that spot. While other names come up (because there is no dominant player in this draft) expect Nerlens Noel to be the No.…

  22. Report: Nets talk deal that would send MarShon Brooks to Minnesota

    Jun 24, 2013, 7:41 PM EDT

    MarShon Brooks

    The Timberwolves are stockpiling a lot of young talent — Kevin Love, Ricky Rubio, Kevin Love, Derrick Williams, Chase Budinger — and there are some reports they may add to that. How about adding MarShon Brooks to the mix? That is a reported discussion going on according to Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily…

  23. The coach is gone, now what moves must Nets make this offseason?

    May 8, 2013, 1:56 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets' Evans, Lopez and Williams wait during time out in their game with Chicago Bulls in the fourth quarter of Game 7 of their NBA Eastern Conference Quarterfinals basketball playoff series in New York

    P.J. Carlesimo wasn’t really the problem in Brooklyn. But he wasn’t really the answer, either. Brooklyn goes into the summer looking for a new coach and that hire is huge because it’s questionable how much the roster can be changed from last season’s 49-win, fourth in the East squad. That’s the challenge for the Nets…

  24. Humphries, Stackhouse to get chance as Nets reshape rotation

    Mar 14, 2013, 2:03 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets' Kris Humphries puts a shot up over Chicago Bulls' Carlos Boozer during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Chicago

    P.J. Carlesimo realizes that the Nets are in danger of being a one-and-done playoff team and that he doesn’t have a lot of weapons to turn to that can change that around. His hands are pretty tied. So he’s going to take one more look at what he’s already got. Carlesimo tried heavy doses of…
