  1. The Extra Pass: Assessing Trade Situations (Northwest Division)

    Jan 21, 2013, 9:00 AM EDT

    Paul Millsap, Al Jefferson

    The Extra Pass is a new daily column that’s designed to give you a better look at a theme, team, player or scheme. Today, we look at potential homes for players on the trading block.  Here’s a look at the trade situations for every team in the Northwest Division: Oklahoma City Thunder: 32-9, 1st in Northwest…

  2. Thibodeau benches Noah for fourth, overtime, and nobody’s talking

    Jan 20, 2013, 10:59 AM EDT

    Joakim Noah

    Here are the facts: Taj Gibson subbed out Joakim Noah with 5:53 left in the third quarter. At that point the Bulls center had 10 points and five rebounds and had played admirably against Marc Gasol and the big front line of Memphis. Noah never got back in the game — Tom Thibodeau benched him…

  3. As Bulls bench suffers, starters racking up too many minutes

    Nov 27, 2012, 6:26 PM EDT

    Tom Thibodeau

    It has been one of the secrets of the Bulls regular-season success the past couple years — coach Tom Thibodeau fully trusted a bench made up of Omer Asik, Ronnie Brewer, Kyle Korver and C.J. Watson. They could play big minutes, play tough defense and either hold or stretch leads the starters gave them. All…

  4. First NBA flopping warnings go to J.J. Barea, Donald Sloan

    Nov 5, 2012, 6:12 PM EDT

    Barea Hinrich

    Congratulations J.J. Barea and Donald Sloan, you have gotten the historic first warnings from the NBA for flopping. The league announced Monday that Minnesota’s Barea and Cleveland’s Sloan got warnings — there are no fines until their second offense (and then it is just $5,000 for the next offense). The goal rather is to leak…

  5. NBA Season Preview: Oklahoma City Thunder

    Oct 8, 2012, 10:49 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook celebrates with small forward Kevin Durant during their NBA basketball game against Chicago Bulls in Oklahoma City

    Last season: So freaking close. The Thunder beat the Miami Heat in Game 1 of the 2012 NBA Finals in Oklahoma City by 11 points. A double-digit victory over he mighty triumverate. It was their fifth win in a row and they looked, as teams do when the win by double-digits, like the superior team…

  6. Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen had a dance-off

    Sep 27, 2012, 10:04 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Chicago Bulls

    So you think you can dance? Apparently the two best players of the Bulls dynasty period in the 1990s do. Monday night there was a surprise 47th birthday party for Scottie Pippen in Chicago and Michael Jordan was there, according to the New York Post. There were also plenty of people you’d expect — “World…

  7. NBA Season Preview: Chicago Bulls

    Sep 24, 2012, 5:07 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose, Taj Gibson, Ronnie Brewer, Joakim Noah

    Last season: Once again the Bulls outworked everybody in the regular season — while 29 teams treat games like the regular season, the Bulls grind every night and they were a league best 50-16 because of it. And that was with Derrick Rose missing 27 games. They were the top seed in the East and…

  8. How good can Bulls be until Derrick Rose returns?

    Sep 4, 2012, 1:27 PM EDT

    Taj Gibson, Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah,

    For the past two regular seasons, the Chicago Bulls were the best team in the East. They were the top seed. But they played much of the season in their top gear — especially on defense — which overwhelmed opponents but left questions about whether they could step it up in the playoffs. We’ll never…

  9. Winderman: New CBA means role players will see short-term contracts

    Jul 24, 2012, 1:05 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Phoenix Suns

    As the NBA adjusts to its new collective-bargaining agreement, we’re beginning to see some short-term returns. Literally. With a more punitive luxury tax and free agents thinking twice about moving on to new teams (and therefore significantly smaller contracts than by remaining with their incumbent teams), we’re apparently in the era of incremental rebuilds. Example…

  10. Report: Derrick Rose out until likely March; Bulls close to Belinelli deal

    Jul 23, 2012, 11:23 AM EDT

    Chicago Bulls' Derrick Rose listens to coach Tom Thibodeau during their NBA basketball game against the Detroit Pistons in Chicago

    Bulls’ management will deny it, but this entire summer in Chicago felt like the Bulls have written next season off and will target 2013-14. And maybe beyond that. The Bulls are about to make a deal for Marco Belinelli — the shooting guard with a sweet three-point stroke who played for the Hornets last year…

  11. Are the Heat frontrunners for Darko?

    Jul 22, 2012, 7:00 PM EDT

    Brendan Haywood, Darko Milicic

    Our own Ira Winderman reports that with the Bulls opting to sign center Nazr Mohammed as their replacement for Omer Asik (likely on his way to Houston with the Bulls not matching his $25 million offer sheet), the Heat could be in position to form something great. Something tremendous. Something unexpected. They could be forming…

  12. Reports: Bulls likely to sign Nazr Mohammed, paving way for Asik to head to Rockets

    Jul 22, 2012, 9:05 AM EDT

    Omer Asik

    Peter Vecsey and ESPN Chicago report that the Bulls are “on the verge” of signing veteran C Nazr Mohammed. The big ramification of this is it signals the Bulls do not intend to match the three-year, $25 million offer sheet from the Houston Rockets for big man Omer Asik, clearing the way for Asik to…

  13. Appears Nets near deal for Nazr Mohammed

    Jul 20, 2012, 3:23 PM EDT

    Mohammed_Nazr

    It was known the Nets had had serious conversations with center Nazr Mohammed, but apparently things are about to take the next step. Mohammed tweeted this (via Chris Tommason of Fox Sports Florida, who says he is heading there to ink a deal) Airplane mode to Newark… ✈✈✈ The deal likely will be for near…

  14. 5 Things to Watch: Heat-Thunder, a potential Finals preview worth playing

    Mar 25, 2012, 6:30 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat

      Best in the East vs. best in the West. Nope, that’s not right. The two clearly best teams in the league. Well, no, not really with how open the West is. OK, how about just: A more-probable-than-on-average chance that these two teams will meet in the Finals. There. Sufficiently hedged. The Miami Heat and…

  15. Video: Jamal Tinsley goes between defender’s legs

    Mar 21, 2012, 8:36 AM EDT

    Jamaal Tinsley

    We feel bad for Nazr Mohammed, he did what he was supposed to do and tried to show out on the pick-and-roll, but Jamal Tinsley made him part of one of our favorite highlights of the year, going between his legs on the dribble then hitting the pull-up jumper.

  16. Thursday And-1 links: Glen Davis drops his shorts

    Jan 19, 2012, 11:27 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic

    Welcome to our 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). Glen Davis, you need to keep your pants on when talking to the ref. It’s pretty much an automatic technical. What are the Sixers doing right…

  17. Thunder trade Byron Mullens to Bobcats for pick

    Dec 19, 2011, 3:29 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Houston Rockets

    B.J. Mullens is a guy who can’t get off the Thunder bench — he’s played in just 26 games over two years. He’s going to get his chance now — Mullens has been traded to the Charlotte Bobcats to help out their depleted frontcourt, reports the Oklahoman. The Bobcats are sending back a second-round pick.…

  18. Nazr Mohammed was doing so well, too

    Nov 12, 2011, 4:30 PM EDT

    Nazr Mohammed

    For starters, it should be noted that at least the players are willing to talk about these things. They’re brave enough to go on Twitter, to talk to reporters, to have conversations about the state of the lockout and the potential end of the season. Their position is obviously as biased as it can be,…

  19. NBA’s new labor twitter account draws fire. It didn’t take long.

    Nov 3, 2011, 9:45 AM EDT

    twitter-whale

    Because the league was not winning big enough during the lockout, it decided to take its case to twitter. The league opened a new account — @NBA_Labor — which the NBA could use to defend the owners case in cyberspace. To right all those perception wrongs. But it didn’t take long before that account came…

  20. Thunder, Nazr Mohammed agree to one-year extension

    Jun 29, 2011, 2:11 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets - Game Four

    Oklahoma City wants to keep its defensive-minded rotation at center in place. To that end, they have reached a one-year extension with Nazr Mohammed, according to the Oklahoman. Terms of the deal are not public, but as a 13-year veteran you can expect it to be in the $1.5 million to $2 million range. At…

  21. Nazr Mohammed hopes to return to Oklahoma City

    May 30, 2011, 6:08 PM EDT

    Nazr Mohammed

    Earlier today, free agent center Nazr Mohammed tweeted that he hopes to remain a member of the Oklahoma City Thunder next season. The 33-year old center was traded from the Bobcats to the Thunder in February. Mohammad has been something of a journeyman in his NBA career, having played for the 76ers, Hawks, Knicks, Spurs…

  22. Are the Oklahoma City Thunder contenders now?

    Feb 25, 2011, 12:07 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Charlotte Bobcats

    Oklahoma City is your trade deadline winner. Last season in the playoffs, the young and athletic Thunder tested the Lakers in the playoffs first round, but when push came to shove the Lakers shoved harder. They had Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol and the Thunder had no answer. Same thing when the two teams played…

  23. Bobcats DeSagana Diop out for season

    Jan 3, 2011, 4:41 PM EDT

    Diop

    Charlotte center DeSagana Diop is out for the rest of the season after an MRI confirmed he ruptured his Achilles tendon Friday night against the Warriors. Diop and Kwame Brown have been the primary backups for Nazr Mohammed. While the loss of Diop the player hurts the Bobcats some, the bigger blow could be on…

  24. Kwame Brown’s season could begin tonight

    Nov 15, 2010, 1:38 PM EDT

    Kwame Brown

    You know times are tough when Kwame Brown’s return from injury qualifies as some kind of great hope. The Bobcats have started the season 3-7. Their defense, which was tops in the league last season, has fallen to 14th, while their offense remains as miserable as ever. The season is young, but it’s hard to…

  25. NBA Season Preview: The Charlotte Bobcats

    Sep 30, 2010, 4:11 PM EDT

    This post was written by Rob Mahoney. Last season: 44-38, which was good enough to score the Bobcats their first playoff appearance in franchise history. They’re taking steps forward (talent upgrades, internal improvement), even if they’re marching further into the desert (temporary fixes, financial commitments, bad draft picks) with no oasis in sight. Head Coach:…
