  1. Heat waive Eddie House

    Dec 24, 2011, 4:59 PM EDT

    Eddie House

    The Heat announced Saturday that they have waived Eddie House. House joined the Heat last season as a free agent after being traded from the Celtics in 2010 when the Knicks acquired Nate Robinson, who was coincidentally also waived by the Thunder on Saturday. House played limited minutes for the Heat last year, with a…

  2. Nets Brook Lopez has surgery, expected back in 6-8 weeks

    Brook Lopez had successful surgery Friday to fix the stress fracture in his fifth metatarsal (the long bone above the little toe) in his foot, the team announced. What really matters to them is they expect him back in six to eight weeks, in mid to late February. Which is before the March 15 trading…

    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). Free Darko’s Bethlehem Shoals is blogging the NBA season over at GQ. I know that mag is your browser home page anyway, but be sure to check…

  4. Peja Stojakovic announces retirement after 13 seasons

    Dec 19, 2011, 5:53 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v New Orleans Hornets

    Peja Stojakovic, the Croatian-born sharpshooter, has announced he is going to retire from the NBA after a 13-year NBA career. Stojakovic spoke to ESPNDallas.com about the decision. The three-time All-Star told ESPN.com on Monday that the physical toll involved in playing after a string of back and neck troubles, at age 34, convinced him that…

  5. NBA Power Rankings: Mavericks start out season on top

    Dec 19, 2011, 12:07 PM EDT

    Dallas players Carter, Marion, Nowitzki, Odom, Kidd, and Terry pose for photos during media day at the team's headquarters in Dallas, Texas

    Welcome to our inaugural power rankings for the 2011-12 NBA season (a regular Monday feature at PBT). These are fun if ultimately meaningless — in the NBA we have a playoff system to decide who is best (are you listening college football?). This is a preseason ranking, so remember that when you get mad about…

  6. Report: Baron Davis will join Knicks

    Dec 18, 2011, 2:34 PM EDT

    Baron Davis Warriors

    Baron Davis will, eventually, be back under the bright lights of a big city basketball team. After being amnestied by the Cavaliers following a diagnosis of a bulging disc that will keep him out indefinitely, ESPN reports the former Warrior and Clipper (and Hornet) has decided to take the veteran minimum to join the New…

  7. NBA Season Preview: New York Knicks

    Dec 15, 2011, 6:30 AM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire, Carmelo Anthony

    Last season: 42-40 — good enough for a middling playoff seed and a first round sweep at the hands of the Boston Celtics. Head Coach: Mike D’Antoni, who has an intriguing roster but will have to step out of his comfort zone. As a playmaker, Toney Douglas isn’t Steve Nash…or Raymond Felton…or Chauncey Billups. As…

  8. NBA Season Preview: Miami Heat

    Dec 15, 2011, 12:00 AM EDT

    LeBron James, Dwyane Wade

    Last season: 58-24, second seed in the East. We all know how this turned out — Miami made it to the NBA Finals in its first season with LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh, but lost the title to Dallas in six games. Head Coach: Erik Spoelstra, who interestingly enough has not yet been…

    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.

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

    Dec 10, 2011, 7:16 PM EDT

    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…

  11. 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 EDT

    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…

  12. The biggest skill Derrick Williams needs to develop? Passing.

    Oct 16, 2011, 7:00 PM EDT

    Arizona v Connecticut

    There’s a number of reasons why this logic is flawed. I’m aware of that going in. When we’re talking about a coach, for some reason, we automatically want to assign the same roles to his or her new team as his or her old team. So for Phil Jackson, Lamar Odom is Horace Grant. For…

  13. Eddie House opts to re-join the Heat

    Jun 30, 2011, 7:33 PM EDT

    House_Eddie

    Sleep easy, Heatians: Eddie House isn’t going anywhere. According to Mike Wallace of ESPN.com’s Heat Index, House has accepted his player option for next season and will spend the 2011-2012 campaign — in whatever length the lockout allows — with the Heat. House’s option is worth approximately $1.4 million next season, per Storytellers Contracts —…

  14. Will the Heat run more next season?

    Jun 29, 2011, 7:08 PM EDT

    LeBron James, Dwyane Wade

    The Heat Index’s Tom Haberstroh has an interesting article up today wondering whether we’ll see the Miami Heat get out in transition more next season: Over the weekend, Pat Riley lent us a peek into his offseason game plan. Would Erik Spoelstra and the Heat make it a priority to speed things up next season?…

  15. Spoelstra will not change Heat’s starting lineup if Barea starts

    Jun 7, 2011, 7:33 PM EDT

    Mike Bibby

    According to multiple sources, according our own Ira Winderman, the Miami Heat will not change their starting lineup for Game 4 of the NBA Finals, even if the Mavericks replace DeShawn Stevenson with J.J. Barea in their starting lineup. As I mentioned earlier, this does change things up a bit for the Heat — as…

  16. NBA Playoffs: Heat win war of attrition, get split in Chicago

    May 19, 2011, 12:15 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game Two

    The final box score makes it look like the Heat evened up the Eastern Conference finals with relative ease. Miami won by a final score of 85-75, the Bulls shot only 34 percent from the floor, and Derrick Rose shot 7-for-23 from the floor while LeBron James and Dwyane Wade combined to score 53 points. In…

  17. NBA Playoffs: Witnessing the ascension

    May 12, 2011, 3:22 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    This was the dream. For all the criticism, the spontaneous hatred from people he never met in cities he’d never lived, for the questions and the scrutiny, this was what he had hoped for. When LeBron James decided to abandon the franchise that drafted him and pursue a team that didn’t think Wally Sczcerbiak/Ben Wallace/Mo…

  18. Erik Spoelstra may tweak starting lineup. Finally.

    May 9, 2011, 12:34 PM EDT

    Erik Spoelstra

    Miami’s starting five has been a disaster these playoffs. The Heat are still winning games, but they are not going to continue doing that consistently playing out of a hole. So far in these playoffs, the starting five for the Heat — LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh with Mike Bibby and Zydrunas Ilgauskas…

  19. Heat need to start Chalmers, Anthony against Celtics

    Apr 28, 2011, 12:51 PM EDT

    Mike Bibby, Josh Smith, Marvin Williams

    The numbers do not lie — the Miami Heat’s starting five with Mike Bibby and Zydrunas Ilgauskas was outscored by 39 points in the first round. By the 76ers starting five. Every game — including Game 5 — the Heat would fall behind quickly, but in four of the games the Heat’s substitutes stabilized them,…

  20. Winderman: Celtics advantages came courtesy Riley, Heat

    Apr 26, 2011, 12:13 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks - Game Three

    Rare is the NBA playoff series when the opposition opens with a 3-0 lead without playing a game. That, however, essentially, will be the case with the impending Heat-Celtics Eastern Conference semifinal series. The Heat will take on the Celtics with a decided deficit at center, point guard and backup power forward. In each case,…

  21. NBA Playoff Preview: Miami vs. Philadelphia

    Apr 14, 2011, 3:58 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat

    SEASON RECORDS Heat:  58-24 (No. 2 seed) 76ers: 41-41  (No. 7 seed) SEASON SERIES Miami swept the season series, winning all three contests by an average of just over 10 points per game. If there’s a bright side for the Sixers, it’s that two of the three meetings came very early in the season, before…

  22. Mike Bibby has made Heat’s defense much worse

    Apr 1, 2011, 8:16 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Miami Heat

    In Atlanta, there are a lot of Hawks fans nodding their heads. The Miami Heat’s defense is much worse when Mike Bibby is on the floor. Not just worse, much worse. Tom Haberstroh crunched the numbers for the Heat Index at ESPN. When point guard Mike Bibby has been on the floor for the Heat,…

  23. Heat’s Mario Chalmers MRI shows sprained knee, out 2 weeks

    Mar 20, 2011, 4:43 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Miami Heat

    When teammates had to help him off the court Saturday night, it looked like it could be much worse. So the news that Miami starting point guard Mario Chalmers will be out two weeks with a sprained knee, while not good, is not what many feared after he went down. Chalmers had an MRI Sunday…

  24. Carlos Arroyo on move from Heat to Celtics

    Mar 5, 2011, 3:51 PM EDT

    Carlos Arroyo Heat

    Our man Ira Winderman said it best on twitter: If you can’t beat them, join them. Carlos Arroyo, cut loose by the Heat last week to make room for Mike Bibby, will now join the Boston Celtics. He has to pass the standard physical, but he is expected to join the team in Milwaukee Sunday,…

  25. Stan Van Gundy, no fan of team buyouts

    Mar 4, 2011, 2:09 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Miami Heat

    Boston picked up Troy Murphy. Miami picked up Mike Bibby. Chicago picked up Rasual Butler. Three of the four teams considered contenders in the East picked up a veteran for their bench that was bought out at the deadline by another team. Orlando stood pat. Want to guess what Stan Van Gundy told the Orlando…
