  1. Mo Evans rejected Wizards front office job, he wants to play

    Sep 14, 2012, 12:15 PM EDT

    NBA Labor Negotiations Continue As Deadline Looms

    Last year, veteran Maurice Evans was a key part of the Wizards effort to reshape their locker room. While less professional influences were moved out and away from John Wall, Evans was there to provide guidance in the vacuum. The Wizards liked what he did, so they offered him a front office job, reports the…

  2. Winderman: Despite Dwightmare, we’ve reached NBA slow season

    Aug 1, 2012, 1:34 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    In a non-Dwight year, this is when it tends to stop, in August. As an NBA executive recently explained, there tend to be four stages to the offseason when it comes to personnel moves: – The start of the free-agency period and the resulting immediate frenzy. – The period shortly thereafter when offer sheets are…

  3. Coach, McGee self ally-oop disagreement sums up Wizards

    Jan 16, 2012, 7:11 PM EDT

    Flip Saunders

    As you can see above, in the third quarter of the Wizards latest loss Monday, JaVale McGee decided to showboat a little with the self ally-oop. It pretty much summed up the Wizards — impressive but unnecessarily showy and self-serving, all while the team was losing. Actually, what would have made it the perfect Wizards…

  4. Winless Wizards conduct players-only meeting

    Jan 6, 2012, 2:30 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Atlanta Hawks

    Something needs to happen in Washington to turn the Wizards around. And while NBA players-only meetings usually have about all the impact of the Iowa Straw Poll it is worth a shot, so veteran Maurice Evans called one, reports CSNWashington.com. “We needed to address ourselves and identify what were some of the problems that the…

  5. Friday And-1 links (and the truth about height measurements)

    Dec 30, 2011, 10:48 AM EDT

    Barea of Puerto Rico and NBA team Dallas Mavericks celebrates with his teammates after their win over Mexico during their men's final basketball game at the Pan American Games in Guadalajara

    Welcome to our morning 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). Who are the guys in the NBA not nearly as tall as listed? Well, if J.J. Barea is 6’0” then I am looking down on…

  6. Wednesday And-1 links, where Nets fans want Dwight Howard

    Dec 28, 2011, 11:07 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Welcome to our morning 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). Nets fans started a chant of “we want Howard” at the team’s home opener Tuesday. No, Deron Williams did not start it. As far as…

  7. Friday morning one liners (so long Brandon Roy)

    Dec 16, 2011, 11:09 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Portland Trail Blazers - Game Four

    Our morning look around the NBA with stories worth reading and notes that are not their own post here at PBT. If you read one thing today, make it the BlazersEdge look back at the career of Brandon Roy. This is spectacular stuff from Ben Golliver. In case you missed it, PBT previewed all 30 NBA…

  8. Spurs are aggressively shopping for a small forward, Jefferson on the way out?

    Dec 3, 2011, 4:00 PM EDT

    Richard Jefferson

    The Spurs will likely look a bit different this year than they did last season. Tim Duncan‘s a year older. Manu Ginobili is a year older. DeJuan Blair‘s knees are a year older. They traded George Hill for Kawhi Leonard. Tiago Splitter will get more minutes. And from the looks of it, they’ll have another…

  9. Thursday morning one liners: NBA rumor mill keeps churning

    Dec 1, 2011, 11:01 AM EDT

    Durant football

    LeBron James and Kevin Durant played flag football Wednesday night. The score: Nobody tore an ACL. That’s the only score that matters. If you want to get an early jump on MVP voting (which, admittedly, may be a tad premature what with training camps not even open yet) we’ve got you covered here at NBC.…

  10. NBA labor meetings rolling along with little word

    Nov 25, 2011, 7:51 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Fisher speaks at a news conference alongside Executive Director of the NBA player's association Hunter in New York

    If you’re desperately looking for good news out of the NBA labor talks, after nearly eight hours of negotiations on Friday there is almost no news out of the room. No news may be good news, or at least a sign that the two sides have gotten serious. There have always seemed to be leaks…

  11. Union VP Evans doesn’t think entire season will be lost

    Sep 26, 2011, 12:50 PM EDT

    NBA Labor Negotiations Continue As Deadline Looms

    Unless there is a handshake deal in place between the NBA and its players union by the first couple days of next week, there is no chance the NBA season starts on time. There’s not enough time to pull it off. Nobody really expects a deal in place by then (it’s not even known if…

  12. NBA “European vacation” roundup: Kobe a long shot

    Jul 20, 2011, 9:56 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Lakers

    As the NBA lockout drags out — and the two sides are not expected to talk seriously until August — the rumors about NBA players heading overseas continue. All these rumors should be taken with a grain of salt — for one, international basketball governing body FIBA has yet to rule if an NBA player…

  13. Mo Evans thinks a CBA deal won’t get done before July 1st

    Apr 1, 2011, 5:54 PM EDT

    Maurice Evans

    With the regular season winding down, the threat of an impending lockout becomes more and more real. The current CBA is set to expire on June 30th, and Maurice Evans, a vice president of the NBA Players association, told HoopsHype’s Chris Thomasson that he doesn’t think a new agreement will be reached by then: Could…

  14. Shocking news: The Players Association doesn’t like the salary rollback idea

    It’s too early in the process to get to the “just lock them in a room together until they figure it out” stage of negotiations on a new NBA Collective Bargaining Agreement. But as both sides continue to posture, I am all for moving up that deadline just to stop the tit-for-tat. The latest salvo…
