  1. Quote of the Day: B-Easy is a six-year-old, apparently

    Michael Beasley

    Michael Beasley on what he was doing at the NBA Trade Deadline while rumors swirled around him regarding a potential trade to the Lakers which never came through: “I know exactly what I was doing: I watching Fanboy and Chum Chum, eating pizza, French fries and lemonade,” he said, referring to a Nickelodeon cartoon and…

  3. Lakers, Blazers, Timberwolves talk three-team deal to move Crawford, Beasley

    Mar 14, 2012, 7:15 PM EDT

    Michael Beasley

    Three-team trades tend to die on the vine — there are too many moving parts, too many players and agents and teams to make happy. But there is one involving the Lakers, Trail Blazers and Timberwolves that is picking up some steam, according to multiple reports including Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo. Also CSNNW.com says the…

  4. Report: Magic, Timberwolves discuss deal involving Jason Richardson

    Mar 14, 2012, 1:39 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    The Magic have been much busier in the days leading up to the NBA’s trade deadline than they’d like to be, thanks to Dwight Howard‘s uncertain future in Orlando and the many teams interested in offering a collection of less talented players in exchange for the league’s best big man. But he’s not the only…

  5. Timberwolves’ offense rolls without Rubio in high-scoring victory over Suns

    Mar 13, 2012, 3:35 AM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Phoenix Suns

    The Timberwolves needed this. After losing Ricky Rubio to a season-ending injury just a few days ago, and after not being able to muster the energy to take care of business at home against the horrible Hornets the day the news was confirmed, Minnesota began a tough seven-game road trip on Monday with an offensive…

  6. Lakers, Celtics talk then kill Gasol for Rondo; LA still looking

    Mar 12, 2012, 9:30 AM EDT

    Rajon Rondo, Pau Gasol

    Pau Gasol and Rajon Rondo have both traveled a similar path this season. Both were offered up in a trade for Chris Paul, and when that didn’t work out they became the names fans of the Lakers and Celtics talked about shopping. For their part, both teams said they wanted to keep the guy publically,…

  7. Beasley trade talks ongoing with teams trying to woo Howard

    Mar 8, 2012, 4:29 PM EDT

    Michael Beasley, Mike Dunleavy, Carlos Delfino

    If you were Dwight Howard, would the presence of Michael Beasley on a team make you want to play there? I wouldn’t think so either, but some of the teams most active in trying to get the forward out of Minnesota are teams trying to impress Howard, according to Ken Berger at CBSSports.com. It’s no…

  8. Broussard: Lakers turned down Michael Beasley offer

    Feb 29, 2012, 6:19 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Boston Celtics

    ESPN.com’s Chris Broussard has the report: The Minnesota Timberwolves offered to trade Michael Beasley to the Los Angeles Lakers for a first-round draft pick, but the Lakers turned them down, according to a league source. While Beasley, a talented and athletic small forward, would fill one of the Lakers’ greatest needs, the Lakers rejected the offer because they do not want…

  9. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Time to fear Brook Lopez?

    Deshawn Stevenson

    What you missed while you were spilling beer on the German Chancellor…. Nets 93, Mavericks 92: Dallas, you did a terrible job of trying to impress Deron Williams and make him want to join your roster. Starting late in the third quarter the Mavericks went on an 0-13 shooting streak, they didn’t have a field…

  10. Report: Celtics, Nets considering trading for Michael Beasley

    Feb 28, 2012, 1:31 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Minnesota Timberwolves

    I’m beginning to think we should use Michael Beasley as the “desperation meter” between now and the trade deadline — whenever a team considers going after Beasley because “they can turn him around” you know they are desperate. Enter the Boston Celtics and New Jersey Nets. Following in the footsteps of Lakers rumors, there are…

  11. Warriors willing to trade Monta Ellis, but only for superstar

    Feb 23, 2012, 2:26 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Golden State Warriors

    In an annual tradition like Meryl Streep getting an Oscar nomination, the Monta Ellis trade rumors have started to swirl. Golden State likes Monta Ellis for all the same reasons you covet him for your team — there are few better pure scorers in the league. At the end of the day, putting ball in…

  12. Report: Lakers interested in trading for Michael Beasley

    Feb 21, 2012, 10:57 AM EDT

    Michael Beasley

    The Lakers need scoring, they need someone who can create his own shot not on the perimeter not named Kobe Bryant, they need depth. And they are desperate enough to consider Michael Beasley. No, this is not a Pau Gasol trade — come on, nobody is that stupid — but there have been talks, according…

  14. Blake Griffin heads 2012 rookie deal extension class

    Jan 27, 2012, 2:24 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers Blake Griffin slam dunks against Memphis Grizzlies Hamed Haddadi of Iran and Dante Cunningham during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    Derrick Rose and Russell Westbrook got theirs. Kevin Love got a deal, as did Danilo Gallinari. Eric Gordon and Brook Lopez did not. And nobody seriously considered giving Michael Beasley one. It’s the first extension to the rookie contract — the first chance for NBA players to make serious, serious money. But as we saw…

    Welcome to our 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). JaVale McGee’s mom loves her son, even if her defense of him shows a few blind spots. As a parent, I can relate… except my kids…

    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). Kevin Love vs. Sumo wrestler. Who ya got? Is there even such a thing as a “clutch player?” Our own Rob Mahoney argues no, there…

    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). Confession: I love Portlandia (the IFC comedy show). I really am going to love the episode where LaMarcus Aldridge makes a cameo. Kevin Garnett tells…

  18. Beasley out three games with foot sprain

    Jan 7, 2012, 7:00 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Boston Celtics

    The AP reports that Michael Beasley will miss three games with a foot sprain he sustained in Minnesota’s Friday night loss to the Cavaliers. Presumably, Derrick Williams will start in his place. Beasley has taken a huge step backwards this season after a promising 2011 campaign. He’s shooting just 39 percent from the field and…

  19. Report: Kevin Love has not been offered contract extension

    Jan 3, 2012, 11:45 AM EDT

    Kevin Love

    Among the no-brainers out there is that Kevin Love is deserving of a max contract extension off his rookie deal. He’s entering his fourth year as an All-Star and double-double machine who has improved his game this season. He will be at the core of any Timberwolves turnaround. But he hasn’t gotten even the offer…

    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). Happy birthday LeBron, you’re bald. Michael Beasley’s finger injury Sunday seemed pretty bad — especially the part on television where you could see him say…

  21. 100 early season observations

    Miami Heat James smiles after making a basket against Charlotte Bobcats during their NBA game in Charlotte

    We lost basketball this year. Precious, sweet basketball. And even though most of the lockout happened in the offseason, those days were still slogs through disappointment and frustration. So to mourn those days and celebrate the first week of professional basketball this season, here are 100 observations on the early season. 1. Lob City’s a…

  22. Dwyane Wade says Michael Beasley can be great, if….

    Dec 30, 2011, 6:30 PM EDT

    Michael Beasley Dwyane Wade

    The question is not raw talent. Michael Beasley has plenty of that. You don’t get drafted No. 2 overall without signs of serious potential. But Beasley has never come anywhere near that potential. As the Miami Heat — the team that drafted Beasley — are about to take him and his new Timberwolves team on,…

  23. Baseline to baseline recaps: Dallas has some issues

    Dec 27, 2011, 7:48 AM EDT

    Chris Andersen, Vince Carter,

    What you missed while out celebrating Boxing Day…. Kings 100, Lakers 91: We covered this one already in our game of the night. Nuggets 115, Mavericks 93: Mavericks forward Sean Williams threw up when subbed out in the fourth quarter of this game, which got a lot of laughs on the Mavs bench but pretty…

  24. That didn’t take long: Beasley parts ways with PR firm

    Nov 2, 2011, 2:43 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Minnesota Timberwolves

    A couple weeks back, the news broke that oft-maligned Timberwolves Michael Beasley had hired a public relations company to help with his image. It made some sense, Beasley had shoved a fan in the face at a pro-am game and had a marijuana bust this past summer, he needed some good PR. How exactly bombarding…

  25. Derrick Williams thought he should have been No. 1 pick

    Nov 1, 2011, 5:21 PM EDT

    Derrick Williams

    The quote below can be taken out of context, as ego run amok. And it shouldn’t. Derrick Williams — the Arizona star who No. 2 overall to Minnesota in the last NBA draft — said what I would want any No. 2 pick to say. He said he thought he should be No. 1. You…
