Williams, who plays both forward positions, now favorite to replace Josh McRoberts in starting lineup
Sep 15, 2014, 1:07 AM EDT
Mark Price worked with him last summer too and it had limited effect.

Bucks owner says Milwaukee. Is he right?

This would be a solid pickup for the bench, especially at the league minimum.

The Al Jefferson Effect: Now that the Bobcats are playoff-bound, how they want their big man to help next

What affect will Jefferson have on the development of Kemba Walker, Bismack Biyombo, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Cody Zeller?

UMass basketball player who came out as gay played high school basketball with Irving, Kidd-Gilchrist

Kemba Walker clearly won a bet

This was a good one.

One of the most obvious trade candidates around the NBA is Evan Turner. Both a talented young player on an expiring contract and not so good and so cheap that his current team wants to keep him, Tuner would fit in a variety of potential deals. There’s only one hitch. The Philadelphia 76ers have yet…

The Chicago Bulls, at least on some level, aren’t totally concerned with how they fare this season. Derrick Rose is already out for the year, and no matter how well everything else comes together, the superstar’s injury limits the Bulls’ upside in 2014. They already traded Luol Deng for zero assets that will help them…

We’re at the midway point in the NBA season and the Indiana Pacers sit on top of the ProBasketballTalk NBA power rankings — we knew they’d be good but they have been better in the regular season than expected. Portland is second, and that is a surprise, but also a team on a win streak.…

If you missed it last week, the Miami Heat and Brooklyn Nets played with nicknames on the back of their jerseys instead of their last names. Once I was able to shush the crotchety old man that sometimes takes over my brain, I really enjoyed it. Ray Allen‘s “J. Shuttlesworth” jersey, a nod to his…

Charlotte’s defense — the reason they were surprising teams and winning games early in the season — has been inconsistent of late. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist could help change that — after being out with a fractured hand since the first week of December, he is set to return to the Charlotte lineup on Tuesday night against…

Unless you’re a hardcore fan of one of a small group of five NBA teams, the injuries sustained this season to many of the league’s star players have made this a dismal campaign thus far. The Thunder are one of the five, but we’ve seen them have to deal with missed time from Russell Westbrook,…

Jeffery Taylor had started the last 8 games for the Bobcats, since Michael Kidd-Gilchrist went down, and while he has struggled in that role (he has shot 35.4 percent as a starter) you can see how the sophomore could grow into solid rotation player for Charlotte. However, they have lost Taylor for the year due…

The Charlotte Bobcats’ outlook is changing. When they signed Al Jefferson this summer, the theory was they would rather be pedestrianly bad rather than historically bad – even if that meant lower lottery odds. I argued Charlotte should go all-in to be totally bad for another season, and that pulling in itself in opposite directions…

Let’s zip around the league with ten observations for ten teams: Atlanta: I’m digging the former Jazz men. Paul Millsap is already getting along famously with Al Horford, but the smart movement off the ball by flex-bred wingmen Kyle Korver and DeMarre Carroll is keeping defenses off guard. This is a really unselfish offense already,…

Charlotte had the worst defense in the NBA last season giving up 108.9 points per 100 possessions, then this summer they went out and got Al Jefferson as their big free agent signing — a guy who admits that he’s not good on defense. We all expect more of the same matador defense this season…

Last season: Remember when the Bobcats started the season out 7-5 and we all kind of did a double take? That really happened, there was a moment where we wondered if this team wasn’t as terrible as we all thought. Then reality hit. The Bobcats went 14-56 the rest of the season. Charlotte had the…

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist had an okay rookie season — he averaged 9 points and 5.8 rebounds a game but his shot from outside five feet was a disaster (29.6 percent from the midrange and he just doesn’t shoot threes, nor should he). He had the ugliest jump shot in the NBA. He brings the intangibles of…
