  1. Weekend NBA rumors and deals (constantly updated)

    Dec 10, 2011, 8:30 PM EST

    NBA basketball spaulding

    Just because you didn’t go to work today — you’re at home trying to hang Christmas lights, like that’s not work — doesn’t mean the wheels of NBA free agency and trades stopped. Not in the least. This post is your one-stop shop for up-to-date, breaking info on what is happening around the league. (If…

  2. Knicks will sign Mike Bibby for the minimum salary, but keep their point guard options open

    Dec 10, 2011, 7:16 PM EST

    Mike Bibby

    The New York Knicks have gone to great lengths to find a talented center counterpart for Amar’e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony. They used the amnesty clause to waive veteran point guard Chauncey Billups, and blew $14 million in the process. They chipped in another $3 million just to ensure the passing of the three-team deal…

  3. 2011 NBA Free Agency and Trade Current Events: This league is bananas, b-a-n-a-n-a-s

    Dec 10, 2011, 10:08 AM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Chicago Bulls

    Let’s say you had a full day of work on Thursday, and then a dinner engagement with a friend, or your kid had a basketball game or something. Then on Friday you had another full day, and then a work Christmas party. This is the holiday season, everyone’s busy. Perhaps you’ve missed what’s gone on in…

  4. Warriors apparently ready to offer DeAndre Jordan around $10 million

    Dec 9, 2011, 8:04 PM EST

    DeAndre Jordan, Corey Maggette

    From the Contra Costa Times’ Marcus Thompson: The Warriors are preparing an offer sheet for Los Angeles Clippers center DeAndre Jordan, according to a team source. The Warriors must have the space under the cap to cover the first year of the deal in order to make the offer. Don’t yet know how much the…

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

    Dec 9, 2011, 7:38 PM EST

    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,…

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

    Dec 9, 2011, 5:03 PM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 9, 2011, 9:34 AM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 9, 2011, 12:58 AM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 8, 2011, 5:52 PM EST

    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…

  10. Thursday morning one liners

    Dec 8, 2011, 11:16 AM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 7, 2011, 7:35 PM EST

    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…

  12. Dwyane Wade sticks up for LeBron, Bosh

    Dec 7, 2011, 3:24 PM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 7, 2011, 11:59 AM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 7, 2011, 11:39 AM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 6, 2011, 8:36 PM EST

    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:…

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

    Dec 6, 2011, 1:39 PM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 6, 2011, 12:40 PM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 6, 2011, 11:01 AM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 5, 2011, 2:39 PM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 5, 2011, 9:11 AM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 5, 2011, 8:47 AM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 4, 2011, 10:56 PM EST

    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…

  23. Report: Heat in the lead for Battier

    Dec 4, 2011, 6:09 PM EST

    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…

  24. 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 EST

    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…

  25. Pretty much everyone wants Jamal Crawford

    Dec 2, 2011, 5:29 PM EST

    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…
