  1. NBA “Deal Day” moves and rumors (constantly updated)

    Dec 9, 2011, 7:38 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Chicago Bulls - Game Two

    Today is going to be the Black Friday Sales of the NBA — there will be deals happening fast here, there and everywhere. Just like at Wal*Mart, you might have GMs pepper spraying others to make sure they get the player they want. It’s going to be hard to keep up with all the information,…

  2. Heat return Mario Chalmers, James Jones, and Juwan Howard for another go-around

    Dec 9, 2011, 5:03 PM EDT

    Mario Chalmers

    Although the Miami Heat’s failure to win the NBA title made them a frequent punchline, let’s not soon forget just how quickly the Heat were able to rise to the top of the league. Miami is an altogether incredible team, and though they squandered an opportunity in the NBA Finals, they likely need only to…

  3. Stern’s trade veto about owners wanting their power back

    Dec 9, 2011, 9:34 AM EDT

    David Stern, Adam Silver

    Why David Stern pulled the plug Thursday on a reasonable (not ideal, but reasonable) three-team trade that would have sent Chris Paul to the Lakers is really simple: The NBA owners want their power over star players back. What LeBron James did scared most owners because he had the power — teams had to come…

  4. Cavaliers’ owner emails David Stern to block Chris Paul trade to Lakers

    Dec 9, 2011, 12:58 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v New Orleans Hornets

    The three-team deal that was in place to send Chris Paul to the Lakers was killed by the league late Thursday, presumably at the behest of a group of small-market owners who loudly protested. One such owner was Dan Gilbert of the Cleveland Cavaliers, who emailed the commissioner directly to express his feelings on the…

  5. If Billups is out in New York, does he land in Miami?

    Dec 8, 2011, 5:52 PM EDT

    Knicks Celtics Basketball

    If Chauncey Billups walked around all day today with a dumbfounded look on his face, he’d have a right. When he woke up this morning he thought he was the starting point guard of the New York Knicks, by the end of tomorrow the NBA’s bottom feeders could be bidding on him. Billups still has…

  6. Thursday morning one liners

    Dec 8, 2011, 11:16 AM EDT

    Rajon Rondo Chris Paul

    Our morning look around the NBA with stories worth reading and notes that are not their own post here at PBT. The Celtics may have been closer to getting Chris Paul than you think. Eddy Curry is about to sign a deal with the Heat. So, you can just start sizing them all for championship…

  7. Hornets willing to sign-and-trade David West to contender

    Dec 7, 2011, 7:35 PM EDT

    David_west

    If David West had not blown out his knee last year, he would be mentioned with Nene as a top free agent in this class. There is not a better pick-and-pop big in the game (well, maybe that Nowitzki guy, but the list is short) and West has an all-around game. He’s a former All-Star…

  8. Dwyane Wade sticks up for LeBron, Bosh

    Dec 7, 2011, 3:24 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Washington Wizards

    Dwyane Wade will take on your villain role as a member of the Miami Heat. Bring it on. But in the process he will stick up for his teammates. In an interview with Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel, Wade defended LeBron James’ comments in an ESPN interview where LeBron said he did not want…

  9. Miami is not going to amnesty Mike Miller. This year.

    Dec 7, 2011, 11:59 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    Another guy who was thought to be a certain amnesty candidate is going to be with his team for a while. Miami was expected to amnesty Mike Miller — who is coming off an injury plagued season and now has had a hernia surgery that will cause him to miss the start of the season…

  10. Wednesday morning one liners (now with extra rumors)

    Dec 7, 2011, 11:39 AM EDT

    NBA And Players Representatives Meet To Discuss Possible Settlement

    Our morning look around the NBA with stories that are not their own post here at PBT. In case you didn’t get it in your inbox, here is David Stern’s letter to fans sent out yesterday. After the lockout and months of talk of change, does the new NBA feel any different than the old…

  11. Circle your calendars: Games not to miss on NBA schedule

    Dec 6, 2011, 8:36 PM EDT

    LeBron James Miami Heat Dallas Mavericks

    We’re not so presumptuous as to tell you what to watch… well, yes we are. There is an NBA schedule littered with good games worth watching that was just released today. What follows are the games that leapt off the page at us as ones not to miss. Dec. 25: Miami Heat at Dallas Mavericks:…

  12. Report: Dwight Howard has not told Magic his intentions

    Dec 6, 2011, 1:39 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    Chris Paul has been up front — he sat down with Hornets officials on Monday and was pretty clear he was not signing an extension and returning to New Orleans. He is not stringing the Hornets along (which is little consolation for the team’s fans). Dwight Howard on the other hand… He has seemed conflicted…

  13. LeBron says he did not enjoy being the villain last season

    Dec 6, 2011, 12:40 PM EDT

    NBA basketball player US LeBron James pl

    LeBron James is on his way to Miami for the opening of training camp in what will be an interesting year for him and the Heat: What did they learn and how did they grow after last season? LeBron was candid in an interview with ESPN Tuesday, including saying he did not like being everybody’s…

  14. Suns 2011-12 schedule leaked, no home games against Amare’s Knicks or LeBron’s Heat

    Dec 6, 2011, 11:01 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Phoenix Suns

    The NBA is set to release its official 2011-12 schedule later this evening, during a program which will be broadcast on NBA TV at 7 p. m. ET. But one team’s schedule has leaked in its entirety, and it shows that plenty of fans won’t be happy with the way things shake out. The Phoenix…

  15. Hornets preparing for the worst or subtly appealing to Chris Paul’s pride?

    Dec 5, 2011, 2:39 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New Orleans Hornets

    As has been made abundantly clear over the last few weeks, the New Orleans Hornets are in a tough spot. Most reports have Chris Paul with one foot out the door — a colossally bad omen for the franchise in virtually every sense. Paul is the Hornets’ livelihood. He is the team’s leader, its star player, and…

  16. Winderman: NBA should bring order to free agency chaos

    Dec 5, 2011, 9:11 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Portland Trail Blazers

    If the NBA was smart, it would swoop collectively upon Dallas, claim the already-booked hotel space and tell Major League Baseball that, at this moment, they need winter meetings far more than any other sport. In 2010, when the NBA actually had time to conduct an orderly free-agent process, most of the league found itself…

  17. Elite prep recruit asks LeBron where he should go to college

    Dec 5, 2011, 8:47 AM EDT

    Duke v Ohio State

    Deciding where to go to college is difficult, and you’re smart to ask for advice on the process. It’s not smart to say you’ll go where a basketball star who never went to college tells you. But that’s what Chris Walker has done. Walker is the kind of guy you might hear about on this…

  18. NBA Free Agency: The final chance for Vince Carter’s redemption

    Dec 4, 2011, 10:56 PM EDT

    vince-carter-suns

    At the 2000 NBA All-Star Game, Vince Carter put in one of the most prolific, maybe the single best performances in NBA history. In the 2000 summer Olympics, Vince Carter dunked over Frederic Weis in arguably the most famous posterization of all time. And in the early to mid-2000’s, Carter put together one of the…

  19. Report: Heat in the lead for Battier

    Dec 4, 2011, 6:09 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game One

    Shane Battier is the type of player you would expect to take a discount to ring chase. He’s been a glue guy in Houston, sticking with them through injuries and curious decisions. He was the chemistry guy in Memphis, helping the younger players get better and making the three that gave the franchise its first…

  20. The Heat want to make a run at Greg Oden. I want to make a run at Isla Fisher. Both have equal odds.

    Dec 4, 2011, 10:42 AM EDT

    greg_oden

    The Heat are cash strapped. That tends to happen when you have three superstars playing on one team (or former superstars in the case of Chris Bosh — sorry, Chris). They need to improve their team and yet they don’t have much room and only one exception to use. So what’s the plan? Apparently it’s…

  21. Pretty much everyone wants Jamal Crawford

    Dec 2, 2011, 5:29 PM EDT

    crawford_jamal

    From Alex Kennedy of Hoopsworld: On Wednesday, NBA teams were allowed to contact agents for the first time since June 30, the day before the lockout commenced. Executives were given the opportunity to work the phones and express interest in upcoming free agents ten days before those players can start signing with teams. One player…

  22. Mavericks will not get championship rings on Christmas

    Dec 2, 2011, 1:50 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    The Christmas present Dirk Nowitzki and Jason Kidd most want they will not get to open. They have to go shopping with Mark Cuban for it first. While the Mavericks championship banner will be raised to the rafters on the NBA’s opening day — while LeBron James and the Heat watch — the players will…

  23. NBA to release schedule next Tuesday (Dec. 6)

    Dec 2, 2011, 9:24 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    The schedule for this season is not up yet on NBA.com. It will not be for a few more days. What is up though are pictures of NBA players and stories about current NBA players — things that were not on the site during the lockout. Images of current players were banned, which gave the…

  24. Heat’s Miller out for two months after hernia surgery

    Dec 1, 2011, 6:11 PM EDT

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

    Mike Miller is injured. Again. The sharpshooter the Heat brought in to space the floor missed half the team’s games last season with thumb injuries and was never healthy (meaning his shooting percentages dropped). Now he is out again for two months due to hernia surgery, he tells the Associated Press. “It’s unreal with my…

  25. Dexter Pittman is Joel Anthony’s biggest fan

    Dec 1, 2011, 5:46 PM EDT

    Joel Anthony

    Joel Anthony averaged just 2.0 points and 3.5 rebounds per game for the Miami Heat last season. Yet if you ask the right people, they’ll preach of his on-court value. Anthony is considerably undersized for the center position, but his smart decisions, constant activity, and impressive lateral quickness make him an excellent team defender. Anthony…
