  1. Larry Sanders questions Brandon Jennings’ willingness to pass

    Oct 1, 2013, 10:15 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Milwaukee Bucks - Game Three

    Brandon Jennings said the Pistons could become Lob City under his direction. Of course, the first step of a lob is a pass, and Jennings has a reputation for being a reluctant passer. But Jennings explained he’d pass more in Detroit, where’s he’s not burdened by the Bucks’ lackluster offensive options and can instead throw…

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks - Game Four

    Last season: It was the end of an era. Josh Smith‘s final season in Atlanta ended the only way it really could: with plenty of ill-advised shot attempts, tons of highlight-reel plays, and probably most importantly, another early playoff exit. After a first round loss to the Indiana Pacers in six games, it was fair to yet…

    Miami Heat v Milwaukee Bucks - Game Three

    Last season: The Bucks went 38-44, reaching the playoffs despite a mid-season firing of Scott Skiles. Their high-scoring and high-shooting backcourt of Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis defined the team, but it was really as a team without a strong identity. Before the playoffs began, Jennings predicted the Bucks would beat the Heat in six…

  4. Bucks unveil new court design for 2013-14 season

    Sep 24, 2013, 9:16 PM EDT

    bucks newcourt

    The Bucks unveiled a new court design during an event held at the Milwaukee Art Museum on Tuesday, and if you’re familiar with the history of the franchise, then the floor’s look may bring back some memories. The Bucks had the team’s original play-by-play announcer Eddie Doucette on hand to help with the introductions, and current…

  5. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: Detroit Pistons

    Sep 24, 2013, 9:36 AM EDT

    Andre Drummond

    Last season: The Pistons went 29-53, their fifth straight losing season and fourth straight season outside the playoffs. Andre Drummond emerged as a possible franchise player, producing at elite levels to match his impressive physical profile. Greg Monroe also operated at a near-All Star level for the second straight season, though somewhat ignores his defensive…

  6. Report: DeMarcus Cousins near contract extension with Kings

    Sep 23, 2013, 2:45 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    Paul George just about has his. John Wall got his. Larry Sanders got his. They all got extensions to their rookie contracts, the early extensions out of the 2010 Draft. DeMarcus Cousins was one other name where we expected a deal — he is potentially the best player in the 2010 draft class but with…

  7. Gary Payton rips former Supersonics owner Howard Schultz

    Sep 15, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    Gary Payton

    Gary Payton was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame last weekend, and while he won the lone championship of his career as a member of the Miami Heat, there was little question that he’d go into the Hall as a Seattle Supersonic. Payton played more than 12 seasons in Seattle, and maintains…

  8. More highlights from Kentucky alumni game (VIDEO)

    Sep 12, 2013, 6:25 PM EDT

    "The Family" World Premiere - Red Carpet

    We already showed you that John Wall dropped 40 and 10 at the annual Kentucky alumni game (because Eric Bledsoe said he couldn’t), but there was more to the game than that. The fine folks at The Mars Reel put this together with some Brandon Knight, some Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, some Terrence Jones, and more. Enjoy.

  9. With three bigs who can finish, Josh Smith says Detroit alley-oops will be “race to the rim”

    Sep 12, 2013, 12:08 PM EDT

    Hawks forward Smith reacts after a shot in the first half during their game against the Celtics in Game One of their NBA Eastern Conference Playoffs basketball game in Atlanta

    “Me, Drummond and Monroe, it’s going to be a race to the rim to see who can get there fastest for lobs.” That is Josh Smith talking about the blessing and the curse of the Detroit Pistons — with Smith, Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe in the front court, the paint could get a little…

  10. Highlights from Kentucky alumni game, Wall drops 40 (VIDEO)

    Sep 10, 2013, 11:11 AM EDT

    john-wall-adidas-crazyquick

    If we learned one thing during the lockout, it’s that John Wall‘s game is well suited for the pickup, free-flowing nature of exhibitions. Say, like the Kentucky alumni game Monday night. Eric Bledsoe told John Wall he couldn’t score 40, so Wall scored 40 with 10 assists and 10 rebounds thrown in. Brandon Knight dropped 30…

  11. Bucks’ GM says Caron Butler going to get “a lot of minutes”

    Sep 6, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Caron Butler

    The Milwaukee Bucks do not want you to think they are in the tank. Transitioning, yes. Rebuilding even. But they are not going “woeful for Wiggins” either. They have O.J. Mayo, Larry Sanders, Brandon Knight, Ersan Ilysova, Gary Neal — some guys that can play. They are not the Heat or Spurs, but they have…

  13. Ten free agents still out on the market

    Sep 3, 2013, 9:16 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls shooting guard Hamilton questions a call against the Charlotte Bobcats during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Charlotte

    At this point, the free agent cupboard is pretty bare, and a number of teams have filled out their rosters anyway. Let’s just be honest — if you’re still on the free agent market there is a reason. Still, there are a few teams still looking to add player 14/15 to the roster off minimum…

  14. J.J. Barea says he’d be open to returning to the Mavericks

    Sep 2, 2013, 7:30 PM EDT

    jjbarea

    J.J. Barea was a key component of the Mavericks’ championship team in 2011, but for reasons he explained in detail recently, Mark Cuban decided against bringing back the free agent players from that squad to defend their title the following season. Barea found a home with the Timberwolves in free agency, and is signed there…

  15. Bucks GM says Sanders key to rebuild, he wants that challenge

    Sep 2, 2013, 4:30 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Milwaukee Bucks - Game Three

    For the casual fan who didn’t watch a lot of Bucks basketball last season, the four-year, $44 million extension Larry Sanders got from the Milwaukee Bucks was head scratching. Who was he and why give him that much money? Because he is one of the up-and-coming best shot blocking, defensive bigs in the game and…

  16. FIBA Americas Tournament became Renaldo Balkman show on Friday

    Aug 31, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Puerto Rico's Balkman goes for a basket against Brazil's Giovannoni during their FIBA Americas Championship basketball game in Caracas

    The 2013 FIBA Americas tournament tipped off on Friday in Caracas, Venezuela, with teams from North, South and Central America attempting to move one step closer to playing in the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. It’s still a bit early to be talking about that since the tournament won’t end until September 11, but…

  17. Coach Brad Stevens refuses to put timeline on Rondo’s return

    Aug 30, 2013, 4:11 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    When is Rajon Rondo going to be ready to play for Boston? Danny Ainge was hoping for opening night. Jared Sullinger hinted it could be more like December. New Celtics coach Brad Stevens is not going to play your game. At least publically. The Boston Herald tried to get him to say when Rondo would…

  18. Wall, Sanders got their rookie extensions, what about the other rookies?

    Aug 30, 2013, 1:42 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    John Wall will be with the Wizards for five more seasons, making $80 million. Larry Sanders will be with Milwaukee for four more years, $44 million. Those are the first two extensions to the rookie deals out of the 2010 draft. They were both expected and both got done early — teams have until Oct.…

  19. Caron Butler says he is excited to be mentor, leader on Bucks

    Aug 30, 2013, 10:50 AM EDT

    Caron Butler

    Milwaukee is a team in transition, one rebuilding after the failed Brandon Jennings/Monta Ellis experiment. They have one foundational piece in place with Larry Sanders in the paint. Now they will see if John Henson, Brandon Knight and others will be part of that, while guys like O.J. Mayo and Ersan Ilyasova help them get…

  20. It’s official: Caron Butler traded to Milwaukee Bucks

    Aug 29, 2013, 5:59 PM EDT

    Caron Butler

    The Milwaukee Bucks get a Racine native who can help them out immediately at the three, where Carlos Delfino could be a little slow to come around following off-season foot surgery. The Phoenix Suns saved more than $5 million and brought in a couple interesting young pieces. The trade we first told you about last…

  21. Watch DeAndre Jordan get punched in the face (VIDEO)

    Aug 29, 2013, 11:24 AM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan

    You can be sure Vinny Del Negro wanted to do this once or twice the last couple seasons. We can ask Doc Rivers about it in five months after another late rotation. That is Clippers center DeAndre Jordan getting punch in the face in slow motion. Why? It is apparently part of Comedy Central’s Roast of…

  22. Report: Bucks Carlos Delfino could miss start of season due to foot surgery

    Aug 29, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Image (1) Delfino_game-thumb-250x352-10319.jpg for post 1603

    Why did the Bucks make a move to bring in Caron Butler at the expense of a couple younger players? Maybe in part because they know that they could use some help at the three at the start of the season because the guy they had penciled in there isn’t going to be around. Carlos…

  23. Report: Suns’ Butler to Bucks trade for Smith, Kravtsov; finalized Thursday

    Aug 29, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Caron Butler

    We brought you news of this potential trade last night and now you wake up to the news that the deal is all but official. The Suns have agreed to trade Caron Butler to the Milwaukee Bucks for guard Ish Smith and center Slava Kravtsov, reports Paul Coro of the Arizona Republic. The deal will…

  24. Report: A year ago, some Bucks officials wanted to cut Larry Sanders

    Aug 29, 2013, 12:22 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Milwaukee Bucks - Game Three

    There are issues with the Bucks signing Larry Sanders to a long-term, four-year, $44 million contract extension, but overall it’s probably not a terrible decision. Sanders has been accused of mailing it in at times, and was among the leaders in technical fouls last season, tying for third with Blake Griffin and Carmelo Anthony, and…

  25. Report: Bucks and Suns engaged in trade talks to send Caron Butler to Milwaukee

    Aug 28, 2013, 11:01 PM EDT

    Caron Butler

    The Suns landed Caron Butler as part of the three-team trade involving the Bucks and the Clippers that sent J.J. Redick and Jared Dudley to Los Angeles, along with Eric Bledsoe to Phoenix. It appears, however, that the player Milwaukee had its sights set on all along may have ended up with the Suns. Butler…
