NBA Free Agency

  1. 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…

  2. Apparently Andrei Kirilenko is very popular these days

    Dec 6, 2011, 2:37 PM EDT

    aKirilenko

    Andrei Kirilenko has a lot of friends in the United States. Or people that want to be his friends. Particularly general managers of teams that want to be his friend. Fifteen teams have reached out to the free agent forward, AK-47’s agent told Mike Wells of the Indianapolis Star. The Pacers are among that group…

  3. Caron Butler to meet with Clippers, lots of other teams in line

    Dec 5, 2011, 11:33 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v San Antonio Spurs, Game 3

    UPDATE 11:33 am: Caron Butler has four meetings set, the Clippers just being one of them. Here is the report from ESPN Dallas.   Butler will visit with team officials from the Chicago Bulls on Monday morning, followed by trips to sit down with officials from the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday night, the San…

  4. Winderman: NBA should bring order to free agency chaos

    Dec 5, 2011, 9:11 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Portland Trail Blazers

    If the NBA was smart, it would swoop collectively upon Dallas, claim the already-booked hotel space and tell Major League Baseball that, at this moment, they need winter meetings far more than any other sport. In 2010, when the NBA actually had time to conduct an orderly free-agent process, most of the league found itself…

  5. Report: Free agency lunacy tips off in earnest Monday

    Dec 3, 2011, 10:00 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets Behind the Scenes

    Yes, there have been back-channel communications. Yes, there are indications and sources and talks. But free agency hasn’t officially begun and won’t until Monday. But Monday, according to an ESPN report, that’s when free agents can begin being wooed by teams and executives. Cue the Brazilian steakhouse jokes! NBA team executives and coaches will be allowed to…

  6. Bulls, Clippers going hard after wing players Butler, Prince

    Dec 2, 2011, 10:15 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v San Antonio Spurs, Game 3

    The Chicago Bulls need a wing player to create shots and take some scoring burden off Derrick Rose. The Los Angeles Clippers need a wing player to fill out a roster with Eric Gordon at the guard spot and Blake Griffin in the paint. Both teams have started to reach out to guys like Caron…

  7. Deron Williams turns down extension with Nets, may not be leaving

    Dec 1, 2011, 5:44 PM EDT

    Deron-Williams

    Deron Williams is going to become a free agent. But that doesn’t mean he will not lead the team into Brooklyn next season — it’s just all about the money. On the face of it this certainly does sound dire — the agent for Williams has told the Bergen Record that his client will not…

  8. Report: Thunder working to buy out Nate Robinson

    Nov 30, 2011, 6:00 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game Three

    You can add Nate Robinson to your list of free agents that fans love way more than GMs do. Not officially, yet. Officially and through Dec. 9 Robinson is a member of the Oklahoma City Thunder set to make $4.5 million next season. But the two sides are working on a buyout, tweets J. Michael…

  9. Free agent Caron Butler drawing interest from power teams

    Nov 30, 2011, 3:08 PM EDT

    Caron Butler

    Caron Butler is 32 years old and coming off knee surgery that forced him to miss the second half of last season and the playoffs for the Dallas Mavericks. Injured and getting old (by NBA standards) is not usually a combo that has teams clamoring for a guy. But in a sign of the market…

  10. Agents can call teams Wednesday, team facilities open Thursday

    Nov 29, 2011, 11:00 PM EDT

    lakers-practice-court

    The NBA is getting back to business. On Wednesday agents of NBA players can contact teams (something that has been going on through back channels anyway but now can happen directly). No deals can be official until Dec. 9. On Thursday, NBA players can return to team facilities for voluntary workouts, so tweets Ira Winderman…

  11. Report: Adam Morrison released in Serbia, seeks NBA return

    Nov 29, 2011, 8:31 PM EDT

    Adam Morrison

    Adam Morrison is back. Hide the women and children barber shears. Last week we passed along the report on how Adam Morrison was playing like his old self in Serbia — a feisty scoring machine. The guy we saw at Gonzaga. Now from the same source — Sam Amick at Sports Illustrated — comes the…

  12. Report: Clippers will go hard after Dwight Howard

    Nov 29, 2011, 4:17 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Dwight Howard

    This is what a star like Blake Griffin can do for a franchise. A year ago, the Los Angeles Clippers were not on anybody’s radar as a free agent until they got desperate. Now, in one day they have popped up as a potential landing spot for the two biggest free agents on the market.…

  13. Carmelo Anthony says he made the right decision with trade

    Oct 13, 2011, 11:50 AM EDT

    New York Knicks Introduce Carmelo Anthony

    It was an ugly mess watching Carmelo Anthony force his way out of Denver last season. But for Anthony, it was the right move. He looks at the ongoing lockout, the lost games, the limbo he would be in as a free agent and thinks how he handled everything worked out for the best. That’s…

  14. Caron Butler says he would consider playing for Heat

    Oct 10, 2011, 4:27 PM EDT

    Caron Butler

    The real point of this story is not Caron Butler, but rather what Caron Butler could represent for the Miami Heat. In speaking with Chris Tomasson of Fox Sports, Butler — the free agent last with the Dallas Mavericks and coming off major knee surgery — said he would consider coming back to play for…

  15. T.J. Ford will accept a smaller role to be on a winning team

    Sep 16, 2011, 1:28 PM EDT

    FORD_TJ

    T.J. Ford will be a free agent when the lockout ends, so he is saying what every free agent says — I want to play for a winner. Of course he does. The Pacers made the playoffs last season but with a losing record. And he was not a huge part of that. Ford was…

  16. David West says he’ll be ready to go in October

    Jul 26, 2011, 9:27 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v New Orleans Hornets

    David West rolled the dice. He was maybe the best free agent power forward on the market, a fantastic pick-and-pop partner for an elite point guard. The kind of guy that a lot of teams with cap room — the Pacers, the Nets — could use. A guy the Hornets want back… more like need…

  17. Europe wants Landry, but Landry doesn’t want Europe

    Jul 22, 2011, 11:12 AM EDT

    Carl Landry

    Like a lot of NBA players, Carl Landry has had offers to go overseas. He specifically has been courted by Armani Jeans Milano, the Italian squad sponsored by… if I have to explain that to you then you have some bigger issues to deal with. But Landry is a free agent about to get a…

  18. Top five unrestricted free agents… where will they go?

    Jul 20, 2011, 3:15 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    Free agency is not going to be as much fun this time around. Whenever the owners and players get around to settling the lockout the free agency period will be condensed and hectic. Not that I really miss the drama of Lebron dragging out his decision, but it’s fun to watch things break over a…

  19. Richardson says winning matters most, of course it does

    Jul 14, 2011, 1:18 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    Orlando’s Jason Richardson is officially a free agent, you can tell because he has now said what every free agent is compelled by some law of nature to say. It’s not about the money, it’s about winning. It’s never about the money. Why would you even think that? Anyway, here is the quote, via the…

  20. Glen Davis wants to stay with Celtics, but…

    Jun 30, 2011, 2:55 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Boston Celtics

    Glen Davis is going to be a free agent at midnight. Not that he can do much about it, not until a new Collective Bargaining Agreement is in place. Whenever that does happen, Davis told the Boston Herald he wants to remain with the Celtics. But things are far too unpredictable right now… “Man, I…

  21. Vince Carter wants to play two more years. Yes, in the NBA.

    May 24, 2011, 4:48 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Phoenix Suns

    Vince Carter will be a free agent this summer. Well, unless you think the Suns want to pay $18.3 million a year next year for a 35-year-old who gave them 13.5 points per game on 42.2 percent shooting. But Carter isn’t done. Or doesn’t want to be. He tells the Orlando Sentinel he wants to…

  22. Grant Hill likes Phoenix but keeping his free agent options open

    Mar 30, 2011, 12:06 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Phoenix Suns

    Grant Hill is nearing retirement — and if there is one thing you can find plenty of in Phoenix it’s retirees. Warm, dry weather is easy on the joints, you know. Plus, lots of places you can have dinner at 5 and still make it home for Jeopardy. Hill will be a free agent at…

  23. Warriors may try to pick up often-injured center this summer

    Feb 21, 2011, 12:31 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Portland Trail Blazers

    Well, this is a sentence I never thought I’d type: The Golden State Warriors will take a look at signing Greg Oden or Yao Ming this summer if they can’t get a big at the trading deadline, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. Yup, you read that right. They have interest in two centers who…

  24. ProBasketballTalk's top 25 free agents tracker

    Jul 12, 2010, 8:30 AM EDT

    Free agency is almost over. LeBron is going to the Heat. Most of the top 25 are set, and the ones that aren’t will be soon. So here is a little wrap up, with a few loose ends out there. What follows is a list of the top 25 free agents on the market (by…

  25. Reports conflict about Tyson Chandler's opt-out

    Jun 12, 2010, 12:36 PM EDT

    Tom Izzo. The Big 12. Tyson Chandler. Can anyone agree on anything these days? We told you earlier about Chad Ford’s report that Tyson Chandler is considering opting out of his contract to become a free agent. Now Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer is reporting that if that’s the case, Bobcats General Manager Rod…
