New Orleans Saints

  1. Who will be the No. 1 pick next draft? Good question.

    Nov 20, 2012, 1:39 PM EDT

    Shabazz Muhammad

    If you asked your Magic 8 Ball who the No. 1 pick in the next draft would be, the answer would come up “Reply hazy, try again.” DraftExpress has UCLA’s Shabazz Muhammad as the top pick as of right now, but after the NCAA was done enforcing its archaic and inconsistent sense of justice, he…

  2. Bobcats Tyrus Thomas out two months with calf injury

    Nov 19, 2012, 4:56 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Charlotte Bobcats

    Tyrus Thomas — who has given the Bobcats some pretty mediocre minutes off the bench so far this young season — is now out for two months due to a calf injury, reports Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer. Charlotte Bobcats power forward Tyrus Thomas is expected to miss two months after a magnetic resonance…

  3. NBA Power Rankings: Top spot goes walking in Memphis

    Nov 19, 2012, 3:23 PM EDT

    Rudy Gay, Kevin Durant

    Memphis has moved into the top spot in the poll this week, but notice the top three are teams we kind of expected to be on the second or third tier in the NBA this season. The question remains can they keep it up. Oh, and at the other end the Wizards still suck. 1.…

  4. Hornets extend contract of GM Dell Demps. Smart move.

    Nov 16, 2012, 11:26 AM EDT

    Dell Demps

    First new Hornets owner Tom Benson locked up coach Monty Williams with a multi-year deal. Now the Hornets have locked up general manager Dell Demps to keep their core in place. Smart move, Mr. Benson. The Hornets have agreed to a multi-year contract extension with Demps, the team announced Friday. (We’re still trying to find…

  5. Report: New Orleans working to buy out Matt Carroll

    Nov 15, 2012, 11:21 PM EDT

    Carroll_Matt

    If you want to know why the New Orleans Hornets traded Hakim Warrick for Matt Carroll in a seemingly meaningless swap of bench players, the answer was clearly money. We can say that because Carroll already makes $500,000 less than Warrick ($3.5 million to $4 million) and now the Hornets are working to buyout Carroll,…

  6. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Celtics bench gets them a win

    Nov 15, 2012, 6:34 AM EDT

    Jeff Green, Al Jefferson

    Our nightly roundup of all the action in the NBA. Or, what you missed while thinking at least one drug dealer really cares…. Grizzlies 107, Thunder 97: We told you last week in the power rankings Memphis was for real. Believe us now? Brett Pollakoff broke down this game for us. Clippers 107, Heat 100:…

  7. Bobcats trade Matt Carroll to Hornets for Hakim Warrick

    Nov 13, 2012, 6:06 PM EDT

    Carroll_Matt

    UPDATE 6:06 pm: And it’s official, with the Bobcats confirmed that the trade has gone through. These two veteran bench players may bet a little more run and a chance to show what they can do in their new surroundings in a way they did not so far this season. Both teams get a little…

  8. NBA Power Rankings: The Knicks are on top? The Knicks are on top.

    Nov 12, 2012, 4:12 PM EDT

    New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith celebrates as he faces the crowd after making a shot against the Dallas Mavericks in the third quarter of their NBA basketball game at Madison Square Garden in New York

    Carmelo Anthony’s Knicks on top of the PBT Power Rankings? Well, that’s it, you need to stock up on canned goods, bottles of water and flashlight batteries because the end is neigh. But no denying, they have earned it the past two weeks. 1. Knicks (4-0, last week ranked No. 3). Through a couple weeks,…

  9. Brandon Jennings, Bradley Beal ejected late in Bucks’ win over Wizards (VIDEO)

    Nov 10, 2012, 5:45 PM EDT

    Brandon Jennings

    Anthony Davis and Byron Mullens weren’t the only ones mixing it up on Friday, but this altercation from the Bucks’ win over the Wizards was a little more serious. With the clock running down under 24 seconds, and the Bucks holding a nine-point lead that essentially had the game already in the win column for…

  10. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist knocks a referee down during incident between Anthony Davis and Byron Mullens

    Nov 10, 2012, 3:30 PM EDT

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Anthony Davis

    Late in the second quarter of the Hornets’ win over the Bobcats on Friday, Anthony Davis and Byron Mullens got tangled up. There was some pushing and shoving to go along with the requisite showing of bravado, before the referees stepped in and the two had to be separated. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist then came over to…

  11. It’s safe to watch Hornets again — Davis cleared to return to team Friday

    Nov 9, 2012, 12:02 PM EDT

    Anthony Davis, Monty Williams

    If you want to know just how much the Hornets missed Anthony Davis and Austin Rivers in the lineup, go back and New Orleans’ loss to Philadelphia from Wednesday. If you can stomach it. The Hornets scored 62 points total and had more turnovers (24) than made baskets (23). So this is good news —…

  12. Hornets’ Anthony Davis says he feels better, could play Friday

    Nov 8, 2012, 2:02 PM EDT

    Anthony Davis

    This is encouraging, but could ultimately be meaningless. The Hornets No. 1 overall pick Anthony Davis has missed the last two games for the Hornets with a concussion he got when teammate Austin Rivers inadvertently elbowed him in the head. But Davis could be back Friday, reports Jimmy Smith of the Times-Picayune. Anthony Davis says…

  13. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Spurs lose and we have a DeAndre Jordan sighting

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Clippers

    Our nightly roundup of all the action in the NBA. Or, what you missed while you were watching the first episode of the new season of Top Chef and thinking you could make an omelet…. Jazz 95, Lakers 86: Well, that was about as ugly as the Lakers have looked this season. Utah’s front line…

  14. Anthony Davis, Austin Rivers both out for Hornets Wednesday

    Nov 7, 2012, 1:04 PM EDT

    Anthony Davis, Monty Williams

    Anthony Davis has not yet been cleared by the league’s neurologist following his concussion and will not suit up Wednesday night when the Hornets host the 76ers, according to the team’s official reporter. This was somewhat expected. Don’t expect Monty Williams to say anything about it. Not a word. But to add to his woes…

  15. Hornets coach Williams fined $25,000 for concussion comments

    Nov 6, 2012, 6:33 PM EDT

    Monty Williams

    Our own Brett Pollakoff called this in his original post on the news — Hornets coach Monty Williams was going to be writing a check to the league. Tuesday the NBA fined Williams $25,000 for his comments critical of the league’s concussion policy. For some background, Hornets star (and No. 1 overall pick) Anthony Davis…

  16. NBA Power Rankings: Spurs and Knicks movin’ on up

    Nov 5, 2012, 3:42 PM EDT

    Fans celebrate as Knicks' Anthony sinks a three-point shot against Heat during NBA basketball game in New York

    The first few power rankings of the year show the most volatility — we don’t have established patterns for teams and so if someone gets hot or cold for a few games there is no context yet to put that in. It’s Small Sample Size Theatre. The Magic are 2-0 but I don’t think they…

  17. Hornets’ coach Monty Williams not a fan of NBA’s concussion policy

    Nov 4, 2012, 5:00 PM EDT

    Anthony Davis, Monty Williams

    Anthony Davis, the number one overal pick in this year’s NBA Draft, missed the Hornets’ 89-82 win over the Bulls in Chicago on Saturday — but not because he wanted to. And his head coach, Monty Williams, has a big problem with that. Davis suffered a concussion on Friday, and left the game late in…

  18. Anthony Davis suffers concussion, will not play against Bulls Saturday

    Nov 3, 2012, 12:28 AM EDT

    Anthony Davis

    UPDATE Nov. 3, 12:26 am: The Hornets have confirmed that Anthony Davis has suffered a concussion — one they describe as “mild” but there are no really mild concussions — and he will not travel to the game in Chicago, staying behind in New Orleans to undergo further tests. It sucks because Davis is from…

  19. Eric Gordon says doctor told him 4-6 to return, no surgery

    Nov 2, 2012, 5:55 PM EDT

    Eric Gordon

    Eric Gordon wanted another opinion on his knee injury, and that doctor says to wait longer. But that no surgery is needed, contrary to an earlier report. When there are conflicting reports out there the best strategy is to go with the best source. In the case of Gordon’s knee, Marc Spears of Yahoo spoke…

  20. Eric Gordon isn’t asking for a trade, it’s about the knee

    Nov 2, 2012, 12:05 PM EDT

    Eric Gordon

    Nobody is sure what is going on with Eric Gordon’s knee. Not the doctors, they seem to say there is no structural damage (at least according to GM Del Demps). Not Eric Gordon, he says he had a setback but is vague and talking about more information coming in. Certainly not the fans in New…

  21. Video: Anthony Davis talks gold medal and unibrow care

    Nov 2, 2012, 8:45 AM EDT

    Hornets' Davis shoots a free throw against Spurs during the second half of their NBA basketball in New Orleans

    Anthony Davis was on NBC Sports Network’s SportsTalk Thursday and talked Tim Duncan, his gold medal being his most prized award and of course the unibrow, specifically care and maintainance of said fashion statement. It’s hard not to like this guy. Both on the court where he has handles, shot blocking, moves around the rim…

  22. Eric Gordon says he had recovery setback, there is no timetable for return

    Nov 1, 2012, 3:10 PM EDT

    Eric Gordon

    It just feels like there is a missing puzzle pieces in New Orleans. Wednesday, both Hornets GM Dell Demps and coach Monte Williams — two player-friendly guys — basically suggested Hornets doctors say there is nothing wrong with Eric Gordon’s surgically-repaired knee. But he says there is. Then Thursday Gordon said things were pretty bad,…

    Nov 1, 2012, 4:13 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard, Jodie Meeks

    Our nightly recap of every gamegaround the NBA. It’s what you missed while buying dive bar T-shirts…. Trail Blazers 116, Lakers 106: In the season opener, Dallas scored at a 108.7 points per 100 possessions pace on the Lakers (for comparison, only five teams in the NBA averaged giving up more points per 100 last…

    Long live oddly polarizing facial hair! You wear that neckbeard with pride tonight, loyal reader, and come check out the three best individual performances from Wednesday’s great slate of games. Third Star: Anthony Davis – 21 points, 7 rebounds It’s rare for a rookie to just look like he belongs. Usually they have flashes, but…

  25. Is there friction between Eric Gordon, Hornets about his knee?

    Oct 31, 2012, 6:41 PM EDT

    Eric Gordon

    We told you today that the Hornets Eric Gordon is out indefinitely with a bum knee, which means he will be sitting when the Hornets tip off the season Wednesday night against the Spurs. That is the same knee he missed most of last season with following surgery, the one that has slowed him all…
