  1. Bucks to buy out Caron Butler, who is expected to then sign with Heat

    Feb 26, 2014, 10:14 AM EDT

    Caron Butler

    Caron Butler was part of the trade that sent Eric Bledsoe to the Suns this past offseason, but he wasn’t in Phoenix for very long. He was dealt to Milwaukee in exchange for Ish Smith, a move that was expected to work for both sides, with Smith being an uptempo fit for Phoenix and with…

  2. Report: Bucks in buyout talks with Caron Butler

    Feb 25, 2014, 8:28 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks Media Day

    Apparently Thomas Wolfe was right, you can’t go home again. It was a great story to see Caron Butler going home to Wisconsin (he was born in Racine) to play for the Bucks to end his career. Except the Bucks season has turned into an unmitigated disaster and at this point a veteran like Butler…

  3. Report: If Granger bought out Spurs have interest, maybe not Heat

    Feb 25, 2014, 7:10 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks

    We are still waiting to see if the Philadelphia 76ers and Danny Granger are going to be able to come to a buyout agreement. While talks are ongoing, a few teams are circling like vultures just in case Granger is going to be a free agent. The timeline is March 1 — if the Sixers…

  4. O.J. Mayo ties his shoe during live action instead of playing defense (VIDEO)

    Feb 21, 2014, 9:31 AM EDT

    O.J. Mayo

    O.J. Mayo is a talented offensive player, but there’s a reason he’s found himself on a different team in each of the last three seasons. Mayo makes some questionable decisions at times that tend to drive his head coaches mad — like this one in Thursday night’s 11-point home loss to the Nuggets. Some might…

  5. Trade Deadline Winners/Losers: It’s a good day to be a Pacers fan

    Feb 20, 2014, 9:24 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Boston Celtics

    It was the day of the role player. There was a fair amount of action at the NBA’s trade deadline but none of it involved the big names that floated around a little — no Rajon Rondo or Pau Gasol, and Kevin Love was never in play. Still, some teams made smart moves, and some…

  6. NBA Trade Deadline Tracker: All the trades, rumors, analysis, fun in one place

    Feb 20, 2014, 3:00 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Brooklyn Nets

    It’s the one day on the NBA calendar you know is going to be like a roller coaster — rumors are going to fly, deals are going to appear close then fall apart, complete fabrications will fascinate a fan base who will then blame a GM for not making them reality, and in the end…

  7. Charlotte upgrades backcourt depth, trades for Gary Neal, Ridnour from Bucks for Sessions

    Feb 20, 2014, 1:18 PM EDT

    Gary Neal Bucks

    Charlotte may not have planned to be in the playoff picture before the season started, but now that they are they want to stay there. Their home-and-home sweep of the Pistons the last two nights was a good start on that road, the Bobcats now have a 2.5 game cushion over the Pistons (3 games…

  8. Trading for a star mid-season to make an immediate impact? Don’t count on it

    Feb 20, 2014, 9:15 AM EDT

    Deron Williams, Carmelo Anthony

    The Luol Deng trade gave us something we hadn’t seen in three years – a star dealt mid-season. The trade might even give us something we haven’t seen in even longer – a star dealt mid-season actually improving his new team. Teams make mid-season trades for several reasons, but we’re going to examine one archetype…

  9. Bobcats reportedly trying to convince Bucks to trade Gary Neal for Ramon Sessions

    Feb 20, 2014, 9:00 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Boston Celtics

    The Bucks seem motivated to trade Gary Neal, and he’s a decent role player. There should be a market for him among playoff hopefuls But this is not what I expected: Hearing Bobcats continue to press for Bucks G Gary Neal and trying before deadline in 7+ hours to sell MILW on Ramon Sessions-for-Neal deal—…

  11. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Thunder, Heat on top coming up to trade deadline

    Feb 17, 2014, 8:16 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Los Angeles Lakers

    Today’s PBT NBA Power Rankings — brought to you by the technology of airplane wi-fi — will talk about the All-Star weekend past and the trade deadline coming up, as there weren’t many other games to speak of. 1. Thunder (43-12, Last Week No. 1). Their addition at the trade deadline is simply getting Russell…

  12. One guy who could get moved at trade deadline: Bucks’ Gary Neal

    Feb 17, 2014, 11:46 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Milwaukee Bucks

    We’ve been prepping you for a pretty slow NBA Trade deadline, which hits Thursday (Feb. 20). For the second year in a row there seems to be not much movement and not many deals coming this year. One guy that very well could get moved? Gary Neal in Milwaukee. He signed there this summer as…

  13. Larry Sanders out at least six weeks following surgery

    Feb 16, 2014, 6:30 PM EDT

    Larry Sanders, Larry Drew

    The rest of the Milwaukee Bucks’ season probably doesn’t matter. They’re 9-43 and have a five-game cushion for the NBA’s worst record. It would be a pretty big upset if they don’t land the best odds in the lottery. What matters now is developing their core. The three players most essential to Milwaukee’s future –…

  14. Lillard repeats as Skills Challenge champion, partnered with Trey Burke

    Feb 15, 2014, 10:15 PM EDT

    2014 Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    NEW ORLEANS — Damian Lillard’s busy All-Star Saturday night started out pretty darn well — with a repeat win. Lillard will be in all three major events on the evening and first out of the gate he and Trey Burke teamed up to win the NBA All-Star Saturday Skills Challenge — by just one tenth…

  15. Ersan Ilyasova reportedly wants out of Milwaukee

    Feb 15, 2014, 2:00 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Chicago Bulls

    Ersan Ilyasova is Milwaukee’s longest tenured player. He’s been there for the mediocre times, and he’s been there for the slightly worse than mediocre times. Over the course of five and a half seasons, the 26 year old forward has had ample opportunity to see exactly how the Bucks operate on every level. Basically, Ilyasova has…

  16. NBA All-Star Weekend: Waiters, Hardaway light up Rising Stars Challenge with 3-point shootout

    Feb 15, 2014, 12:11 AM EDT

    dion waiters

    NEW ORLEANS — To be perfectly honest, there are times when the Rising Stars Challenge can feel like a bit of a chore. It can’t match the talent level of the actual All-Star game, but it has all of the lack of defense, intensity, and ball movement that is usually par for the course in…

  17. Andre Drummond named MVP of Rising Stars Challenge

    Feb 14, 2014, 11:56 PM EDT

    drummond

    NEW ORLEANS – Andre Drummond finished with 30 points and 25 rebounds in his team’s 142-136 win in Friday night’s Rising Stars Challenge, a performance which earned him the game’s MVP trophy. Few will remember him for it, however, thanks to an extended one-on-one shootout that went down between Tim Hardaway Jr. and Dion Waiters.…

  18. The Extra Pass: Predictions for All-Star Weekend

    Feb 14, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    NBA All-Star Game 2013

    All-Star weekend is upon us. While the rest of the PBT crew gets to eat beignets and earn beads for showing a little skin (that’s how that works, right?), some of us will be stuck at home watching the celebrity game and reevaluating our life choices. Not that I’m bitter or anything. Not at all.…

  19. Bucks’ Larry Sanders suffers broken eye socket, out indefinitely

    Feb 10, 2014, 7:53 PM EDT

    larry sanders

    This has just not been Larry Sanders’ year. The season after signing a four-year, $44 million extension he suffered torn ligaments in his thumb, something he suffered in a bar fight. He came back and argued with teammates, he never seemed to have the full trust of coach Larry Drew, although he has played better…

  20. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Thunder stay on top, Bucks stay on bottom

    Feb 10, 2014, 3:24 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    More and more I think Adam Silver’s first NBA Finals as commissioner will feature Indiana and Oklahoma City — which would be good basketball but not exactly Super Bowl ratings. Things can change, but those are the two best teams right now.   1 Thunder (41-12, Last Week No. 1). We gave been praising Kevin…

  21. Report: No, the Bucks don’t want to trade Larry Sanders to your team. Nice try.

    Feb 7, 2014, 11:06 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Houston Rockets

    Last season Milwaukee’s Larry Sanders was a breakout player, his shot blocking and defensive presence in the paint was one of the reasons the Bucks were good enough to make the playoffs, plus he scored an efficient 9.5 points a game. That earned him a four-year, $44 million contract extension as the Bucks saw him…

  22. The Extra Pass: Handicapping the All-Star Saturday events

    Feb 7, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Denver Nuggets

    A week from now the eyes of the basketball world will be on New Orleans for the NBA’s Damian Lillardapalooza. … er, I mean the NBA’s All-Star weekend. While Sunday’s All-Star Game is the big show, I’ve always found Saturday night’s series of skill contests more fun than the no-D exhibition that is the All-Star…

  23. 2014 Rising Stars Challenge rosters set; Anthony Davis taken with first overall pick

    Feb 6, 2014, 10:31 PM EDT

    faried rising stars

    The Rising Stars Challenge kicks off the All-Star weekend festivities that Friday night, and features a mix of the game’s top rookies and sophomores competing in the exhibition. Teams used to be separated by seniority, which often times meant a blowout victory for the second-year players. But the league has since created a draft of…

  24. All-Stars Damian Lillard, DeMar DeRozan highlight field for 2014 Skills Challenge

    Feb 6, 2014, 8:11 PM EDT

    Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    It seems redundant at this point to list Damian Lillard as part of the lineup for any of All-Star weekends many events, considering he’s participating in all of them. But he, along with DeMar DeRozan are the two 2014 All-Stars who will be taking part in the Skills Challenge event on All-Star Saturday night. The…

  25. Giannis Antetokounmpo to compete in Skills Challenge during NBA All-Star Weekend

    Feb 6, 2014, 6:14 PM EDT

    Giannis Antetokounmpo

    Typically, rookies don’t get noticed. Typically, players from overseas need more time to build an American following. Typically, Milwaukee Bucks are ignored. Giannis Antetokounmpo is definitely atypical. “The Greek Freak” has wowed fans all season with his long arms, diverse skillset and outward happiness. He’s been so impressive, he’ll be competing in Skills Challenge –…
