  1. Report: Golden State thinking small forward and Jason Kidd

    Jun 6, 2012, 1:28 PM EST

    Mavericks guard Kidd watches from the bench against the Spurs  during their NBA basketball game in Dallas, Texas

    One half of the report out of the San Francisco Chronicle makes a lot of sense — Golden State needs an upgrade at the three spot and they have a lot of assets heading into the draft to make a move. But the second half of this makes no sense to me. The San Francisco…

  2. Report: Dallas may make futile run to get Roy Hibbert

    Jun 4, 2012, 4:44 PM EST

    Roy Hibbert

    Dallas has apparently learned a valuable lesson — having a big shot-blocking center in the paint is very important if you are into the whole “winning a title” thing. They missed Tyson Chandler, so they may make a run at Pacers center free agent Roy Hibbert. Even though they will not get him. This from…

  3. Look for Portland, Brooklyn to make big-money run at Nash

    Jun 4, 2012, 8:47 AM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Phoenix Suns

    We told you the Chicago Bulls may reach out to Steve Nash and see if the veteran point guard wants to play for them for the league minimum. But if Nash is willing to play for that price to chase a ring he will have his choice of destinations — Miami, New York, Dallas, Los…

  4. Report: Suns to pursue Deron Williams. What, is Magic Johnson unavailable?

    Jun 2, 2012, 9:00 PM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers v New Jersey Nets

    The New York Daily News reports that if Steve Nash leaves the Suns in free agency, the Suns will make a bid for Deron Williams. “If they lose Steve, then they plan to go after Deron, hard,” said a person with knowledge of the Suns’ plans. “They know he loves golf and they’re going to…

  5. The New Orleans Hornets and a matter of serendipity, not conspiracy

    Jun 2, 2012, 12:30 PM EST

    Dell Demps

    Maybe they’re right. Maybe the league, in the face of unfathomable depths of reason to avoid the concept like the plague (which I have outlined here), really did rig the 2012 NBA Lottery in order to help the Hornets after a rough year, or dot the i’s on the sale of the team to Tom…

  7. Hornets, Warriors Draft Lottery winners. Nets lose. Again.

    May 30, 2012, 9:24 PM EST

    YouTube 2012 Upfronts Presentation

    In a draft lottery that stayed to form — the only shift was New Orleans from fourth to first — there are still winners. And there are still losers. The only difference is it is based more on what you did going into the draft then the luck of the ping-pong balls. If you gambled…

  8. New Orleans Hornets win NBA Draft Lottery, rights to Anthony Davis

    May 30, 2012, 8:33 PM EST

    Detroit Pistons v New Orleans Hornets

    Tom Benson is a good luck charm for New Orleans. He is in the process of buying the struggling Hornets franchise to keep the NBA’s smallest market from losing its team — now the biggest star to come out of college in years is headed there. The New Orleans Hornets have won the NBA Draft Lottery.…

  9. Deron Williams denies Nets must get Howard to keep him

    May 30, 2012, 6:29 PM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers v New Jersey Nets

    UPDATE 6:29 pm: Deron Williams has come out and denied the report that it’s Dwight Howard-or-bust if the Nets want to keep him. Williams took to twitter to answer the claim. I would love to know who Adrian Wojnarowski source is bc he knows more about what I’m thinking then I do, maybe they can…

    Stevenson ATM

    We mock NBA players for the way they go through money like it was water, the way they own a Bentley and an Escalade — and that’s just at their summer home in LA. We act as if we were millionaires at age 23 we would have been prudent and invested our money wisely, when…

  11. What would it mean for teams to win NBA Draft Lottery

    May 29, 2012, 7:59 PM EST

    Final Four - Louisville v Kentucky

    Fates will be decided by some bouncing balls and random numbers Wednesday. Not just the fate of lock No. 1 overall pick Anthony Davis (and guys like Andre Drummond, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Thomas Robinson and many more). It’s the fate of franchises (and general managers) that will be decided. What would it mean to the 14…

  13. Those Deron Williams for Pau Gasol trade rumors? Kill them.

    May 25, 2012, 1:36 AM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers Pau Gasol walks off the court after a season-ending loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder during Game 5 of the NBA western conference semi-finals in Oklahoma City

    After the Lakers were eliminated from the playoffs, Lakers fans took to the Internet like locust trying to find a way to trade Pau Gasol and make their team better. About the same time came word that Deron Williams had the Lakers on his list of teams he would consider. So, a Gasol or Deron…

  14. Report: Magic to start shopping Dwight Howard before draft

    May 24, 2012, 9:23 PM EST

    Dwight Howard

    It sounds more and more like Orlando’s ownership and upper management, after spending a year trying to convince Dwight Howard to stay, are done. They want him, he can sign on and stay, but they are done catering to his whims. Well, now that Stan Van Gundy is gone. Orlando will start listening to offers…

  16. Kevin Durant, LeBron James head All-NBA Teams

    May 24, 2012, 2:39 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat

    Here’s the problem with nitpicking the All-NBA teams — there are no bad players on any of the first three. You can argue if you want (and as I would) that LaMarcus Aldridge deserves a spot on the third team more than Carmelo Anthony or Dirk Nowitzki, but that doesn’t make the guys on the…

  17. Does Steve Nash have any interest in playing for the Knicks?

    May 24, 2012, 1:37 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Phoenix Suns

    In New York, it has just kind of assumed that Steve Nash wants to come there. Because New Yorkers assume everyone wants to come there, play there — that everyone wishes they were New Yorkers. Not the case. And it may not be the case with Steve Nash. In a twitter discussion yesterday, Jared Zwerling…

  18. Report: Deron Williams has Lakers on his list (behind Nets)

    May 23, 2012, 3:18 PM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers v New Jersey Nets

    A Deron Williams and Kobe Bryant backcourt, with Andrew Bynum in the paint. That team could be very dangerous. Apparently, Deron Williams has thought about it. In an article where he says the Lakers and Magic need to do a Bynum for Dwight Howard swap, Sam Amick of Sports Illustrated drops some interesting knowledge about…

  19. Jerry Sloan would be interested in Magic coaching job

    May 22, 2012, 5:14 PM EST

    Utah Jazz v Atlanta Hawks

    Fox Sports Florida’s Chris Tomasson has an interesting article up today about one legendary coach who might be willing to fill the Orlando Magic’s coaching vacancy: Jerry Sloan once coached temperamental star Karl Malone for 15 years. Perhaps his next challenge could be another such guy, Dwight Howard. Sloan told FOX Sports Florida on Tuesday…

  20. Point guards Irving, Rubio lead NBA All-Rookie team

    May 22, 2012, 3:56 PM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers rookie Kyrie Irving reacts after a turnover during the second quarter of the Cavaliers NBA basketball game against the Miami Heat in Cleveland

    The NBA is evolving into more of a point-guard league — if you can’t touch a quick ball handler on the perimeter they are going to carve up any defense. With the rules enforced as they are, Tony Parker can’t guard Tony Parker. So no shock that the two guys on top of the NBA…

  21. Deron Williams makes it clear he has made no decision

    May 22, 2012, 3:09 PM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers v New Jersey Nets

    Brooklyn, to lead the Nets into New York. Dallas, to come back home and partner with the big German. Maybe somewhere else unexpected. There are a lot of options in front of Deron Williams. But when he was seen in Russia this week the Brooklyn speculation started up again (because the Nets are owned by…

  22. Delonte West hoping to re-sign with Dallas

    May 22, 2012, 1:15 PM EST

    delonte

    It’s going to be an interesting summer in Dallas. Can they lure Deron Williams back to his home town? Can they find a way to trade for Dwight Howard (not likely)? If those plans fall through, what does Mark Cuban have up his sleeve? Whatever happens Delonte West wants to be a part of it.…

  23. Report: Dwight Howard still “desperately” wants trade

    May 21, 2012, 11:55 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v New York Knicks

    As the Orlando Magic look for a new coach and general manager, they need to be thinking guys who can rebuild a team and do it without Dwight Howard. Because it felt like he was going to be gone anyway. And now comes this from Chris Sheridan of SheridanHoops.com — Howard may have won the…
