  1. Pistons’ Brandon Jennings fined $5,000 for second flopping violation this season

    Apr 1, 2014, 5:31 PM EDT

    Brandon Jennings

    Brandon Jennings has been caught twice flopping this year, and that earns him a small fine.

  2. Thursday NBA grades: The Sixers deserve an “A+”…. for tanking

    Mar 28, 2014, 2:08 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Houston Rockets

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while playing with your Simpsons LEGO figures… Philadelphia 76ers efforts to tank. This is not about the players on the Sixers, those guys went as hard as they could (it was 43-43 at one point), they are simply overmatched. That’s because GM Sam Hinkie and…

  3. Thursday And-1 Links: Carmelo Anthony wants to mentor DeMarcus Cousins

    Mar 27, 2014, 7:45 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins, Carmelo Anthony

    Here is our regular 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) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points. • Carmelo Anthony told the Sacramento Bee he wants to help mentor DeMarcus Cousins.…

  4. Bucks to shut down Ersan Ilyasova for rest of season

    Mar 27, 2014, 2:47 PM EDT

    Ersan Ilyasova

    Ersan Ilyasova, who has battled foot and ankle issues all season for the Milwaukee Bucks, has now seen a doctor and gotten the word. The Bucks are shutting down Ilyasova for the rest of the season, the team announced Tuesday. He will not require surgery, but he needs rehabilitation. The injuries took a tool on…

  5. Too much Dirk Nowitzki in overtime lifts Mavericks over Thunder

    Mar 26, 2014, 12:45 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Dallas Mavericks

    When Kevin Durant is putting on the kind of show that will win him the MVP award, as he was doing Tuesday night, the Thunder are very hard to beat. Dallas did just that though. They did it behind a vintage night from Dirk Nowitzki (well, except he continued to struggle from three going 2-of-8),…

  6. The Extra Pass: Giannis Antetokounmpo is having fun. And starting to figure out how good he can be.

    Mar 25, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Los Angeles Clippers

    The Greek Freak loves everything about the NBA… except that nickname. But it’s grown on him.

  8. Bucks make it official, Larry Sanders out for the rest of the season

    larry sanders

    This was pretty much the only way Larry Sanders’ season was going to end. Poorly.

  9. NBA Power Rankings: Spurs, Clippers are your clear top two

    Mar 17, 2014, 1:47 PM EDT

    Manu Ginobili, Derrick Favors

    The Spurs and Clippers have distanced themselves from the pack with double-digit winning streaks and sit on top. The Sixers have anchored themselves to the bottom.

  10. Bobcats bench Gary Neal over ‘internal team matter’

    Mar 12, 2014, 9:02 PM EDT

    gary neal bobcats

    The Bobcats are a playoff team in the East at the moment, but that position is relatively tenuous. Every game counts toward that goal, obviously, so willingly sitting down one of your rotation players has to have happened for a good reason. We don’t yet know exactly what that reason is, but we do know…

  11. Commissioner Adam Silver says what is happening in NBA is rebuilding, not tanking

    Mar 12, 2014, 7:03 PM EDT

    adam silver

    Is there tanking going on in the NBA this season? Depends on how you want to define taking. However even if you define it broadly it’s not as bad as many seem to think it is. New NBA commissioner Adam Silver defines it more narrowly and says there is no tanking going on right now.…

  13. O.J. Mayo suspended one game for punching Pelicans’ Greg Stiemsma in the throat (VIDEO)

    Mar 8, 2014, 3:01 PM EDT

    oj mayo

    O.J. Mayo has been suspended one game without pay for “forcibly striking” Greg Stiemsma in the throat during Friday night’s loss to the Pelicans, the league announced on Saturday via official release. This comes as no surprise, as Mayo’s teammate Ersan Ilyasova received a similar suspension for even less of an offense that occurred in…

  14. Bucks’ O.J. Mayo ejected for punching Pelicans’ Greg Stiemsma (VIDEO)

    Mar 7, 2014, 9:05 PM EDT

    o.j. mayo bucks

    It’s been a frustrating season in Milwaukee, and it’s gotten to the point where the team’s players are taking out those emotions violently against their opponents. Ersan Ilyasova received a suspension for the punch-shove combo he delivered to Reggie Evans, and we can expect the same punishment to be handed down to O.J. Mayo, who…

  15. Bucks’ Ersan Ilyasova suspended one game for punch to Kings’ Reggie Evans (VIDEO)

    Mar 7, 2014, 4:25 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Chicago Bulls

    You can’t do that. Go ahead and argue that what Milwaukee’s Ersan Ilyasova really did was shove the Kings’ Reggie Evans if you want, you still can’t do that. The two were battling for rebounding position and after the play Ilyasova turned on Evans punch/shoved him and knocked him to the ground. I have checked the NBA…

  16. The one where Giannis Antetokounmpo doesn’t have cab fare so runs to Bucks game

    Mar 5, 2014, 5:55 PM EDT

    2014 BBVA Compass Rising Stars Challenge

    When teams go into the NBA draft the question isn’t “who is the best player now?” it’s “who is the best player three years, five years from now?” The Bucks may have won that this draft with Giannis Antetokounmpo. The Greek Freak has all sorts of raw talent and that leads to some amazing plays, but…

  17. Pat Riley says Caron Butler wanted a role that Heat couldn’t promise

    Mar 4, 2014, 7:09 PM EDT

    Pat Riley

    It remains to be seen to a certain extent, but Caron Butler appears to be the one player made available during the NBA’s unofficial buyout season that has a true chance of impacting his new team’s playoff chances. That team is the Oklahoma City Thunder, who apparently had more to offer in their sales pitch…

  18. Giannis Antetokounmpo blocks shot, gets behind-the-back assist in transition

    Mar 4, 2014, 1:30 PM EDT

    ANTETOKOUNMPO, MAHINMI

    Giannis Antetokounmpo ranks: Just below Raymond Felton and just above Mo Williams in PER Just below Andrea Bargnani and just above E’Twaun Moore in win shares Just below Toney Douglas and just above Luc Mbah a Moute in win shares per 48 minutes So, why does everyone go gaga over the Greek Freak? 1. He’s…

  19. Monday night NBA grades: Masked LeBron James is a bad mutha (Shut your mouth)

    Mar 4, 2014, 3:37 AM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats vs Miami Heat

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while watching Lionel Messi be Lionel Messi…. Masked LeBron James, Miami Heat. The rest of the teams may petition the NBA asking that LeBron not be allowed to wear any mask again. In the three games since coming back and wearing a mask he is…

  20. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Miami putting its foot down on the gas

    Mar 3, 2014, 3:43 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks

    The PBT power rankings have returned with not a lot of change from last week — Miami, Indiana, San Antonio and Oklahoma City are the top four (in whatever order you wish) then there is a gap to the Clippers, Rockets and teams trying to knock on that door. Meanwhile the Sixers look like they…

  21. Giannis Antetokounmpo shows off some soccer skills, too (VIDEO)

    Mar 3, 2014, 1:59 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Indiana Pacers

    Giannis Antetokounmpo, is there anything he can’t do? The most exciting rookie in this year’s class — and maybe in a few years the best player in this class — swung by a Milwaukee Wave indoor soccer league game and turns out the Greek Freak has some soccer skills, too. He showed off a little…

  22. Report: Caron Butler to sign with Thunder, not Heat

    Feb 28, 2014, 11:04 AM EDT

    Caron Butler, Nate Wolters, Markieff Morris

    Oklahoma City, looking for depth and a good spot up shooter to round out their roster for a playoff run, may have found one in veteran swingman Caron Butler. Despite early reports Butler was going to sign in Miami and backup Dwyane Wade (which means a lot of starts considering his knee maintenance plan), Butler…

  23. Report: Jimmer Fredette “strongly leaning” toward Bulls

    Feb 27, 2014, 10:05 PM EDT

    Jimmer Fredette

    Jimmer Fredette can shoot the ball. The Chicago Bulls could use some guys to bring them points. It looks like the two sides will get together. Fredette was officially bought out by the Kings and waived on Thursday. When he clears waivers this weekend it looks like he is heading to the Windy City. First,…

  24. Report: Thunder join Heat as frontrunners to sign Caron Butler

    Feb 27, 2014, 1:58 PM EDT

    Bucks Butler Basketball

    When word leaked out that Caron Butler and the Milwaukee Bucks were working on a buyout, it was almost instantaneous with reports he would land in Miami. There’s some logic to that — Butler played in Miami and was very popular in the locker room (Dwyane Wade is a fan) and in the community, plus…

  25. Report: Sacramento Kings to sign Royce White

    Feb 27, 2014, 11:41 AM EDT

    Royce White

    It’s easy to forget now, but Royce White was the No. 16 pick in the 2012 NBA draft for a reason. He projected to have enormous upside thanks to his ball-handling and passing ability for his size, and he still had big-man skills to form the full package as a prospect. Before Giannis Antetokounmpo, there…
