New York Knicks

  1. Kings claim Travis Outlaw off the amnesty wire: a story in 15 sentences.

    Dec 17, 2011, 11:12 PM EST

    New Jersey Nets forward Outlaw celebrates after scoring against the Toronto Raptors during triple overtime in their NBA game in London

    The following is a sentence-by-sentence explanation of a basketball transaction. Please forgive the one-line paragraphs in pursuit of novelty. The Kings today grabbed Travis Outlaw off the amnesty wire. Outlaw was not very good for the Nets last year, that’s why they used the amnesty clause on him. In fact, he was so bad he…

  2. Iman Shumpert debuts for the Knicks… and it was pretty good

    Dec 17, 2011, 8:30 PM EST

    New York Knicks v New Jersey Nets

    When Iman Shumpert was drafted, Knicks fans got excited. That’s pretty normal, right? Now, here’s where the story diverts into two tales. On the one hand, you have normal fans. “Hey, maybe Shumpert can contribute and eventually start.” Or, “Wow, he’s got great athleticism and an all-around game, he could really be a difference maker,…

  3. Billups says he’s a Clipper, “It could have been much worse”

    Dec 16, 2011, 4:50 PM EST

    billups-knicks

    Chauncey Billups is in. He threatened retirement if someone he didn’t like picked him up on waivers after the Knicks used the amnesty rule on him (to free up room for Tyson Chandler). The Clippers took a chance and submitted a bid on him. At his introductory press conference, Billups said he was in and…

  4. New York will be better, but fans will be thinking about what’s next

    Dec 16, 2011, 1:30 PM EST

    Amare Stoudemire, Tyson Chandler, Carmelo Anthony

    The New York Knicks are going to win a playoff game this year. For the first time since 2001. Having Carmelo Anthony and Amar’e Stoudemire together for a full season will boost the offense, having Tyson Chandler along the back line will turn them from terrible to average on defense (or maybe a little better,…

  5. Friday morning one liners (so long Brandon Roy)

    Dec 16, 2011, 11:09 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Portland Trail Blazers - Game Four

    Our morning look around the NBA with stories worth reading and notes that are not their own post here at PBT. If you read one thing today, make it the BlazersEdge look back at the career of Brandon Roy. This is spectacular stuff from Ben Golliver. In case you missed it, PBT previewed all 30 NBA…

  6. Blazers to formally amnesty Brandon Roy as he leaves game

    Dec 15, 2011, 7:39 PM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Los Angeles Lakers

    Brandon Roy is walking away from the game… which makes us sad. But he’s doing it while he can still walk, which is understandable. How Roy’s retirement is formally going down is that the Blazers will amnesty him, reports Adrian Wojnarowski at Yahoo. The reason is they need to get his salary of the books…

  8. NBA Season Preview: Los Angeles Clippers

    Dec 15, 2011, 11:31 AM EST

    Eric Bledsoe, Chris Paul

    Last season: 32-50, or to frame it in context, 13th place in the West out of 15 teams. Head Coach: Vinny Del Negro, who, after the team successfully traded for Chris Paul, is now officially on the hot seat. VDN has yet to prove he can be successful coaching at the NBA level, and if…

  9. Clippers future now in hands of one Donald T. Sterling

    Image (1) dsterling-thumb-250x250-18407.jpg for post 3716

    Wednesday night the Clippers went from “good young team with potential” to “these guys are close to being contenders.” The Clippers are not title contenders yet. Not until we see them play better and consistent defense. Not until we’re convinced Vinny Del Negro can coach a team to a championship. Not with the stopgap Chauncey…

  10. NBA Season Preview: New York Knicks

    Dec 15, 2011, 6:30 AM EST

    Amare Stoudemire, Carmelo Anthony

    Last season: 42-40 — good enough for a middling playoff seed and a first round sweep at the hands of the Boston Celtics. Head Coach: Mike D’Antoni, who has an intriguing roster but will have to step out of his comfort zone. As a playmaker, Toney Douglas isn’t Steve Nash…or Raymond Felton…or Chauncey Billups. As…

  11. NBA Season Preview: New Jersey Nets

    Dec 15, 2011, 6:05 AM EST

    Deron-Williams

    Last season: 24-58, a better-than-last-year mark that reminds us all just how terrible bad teams can be. Head Coach: Avery Johnson, who still has a lot to prove. We know he can yell at teams filled with veterans until they win 60+ games, but how effectively can he groom young talent? How does his system…

  12. Chris Paul traded to Clippers: The salvation of Blake Griffin

    Dec 14, 2011, 11:30 PM EST

    chris-paul-blake-griffin

    Blake Griffin is going to have it different. That’s what the Wednesday night trade of Chris Paul to Griffin’s Clippers represents. There’s been a precedent set in this league, where great players have their youths squandered on poor teams, suffering without help. The most notable has been Kevin Garnett, and after him, LeBron James, whose…

    Dec 14, 2011, 8:10 PM EST

    chris-paul-blake-griffin

    After days of rumors, a league-vetoed trade, and a series of on-again, off-again talks with multiple teams, the Hornets have finally reached an agreement to trade Chris Paul to the Los Angeles Clippers. The Clippers get Paul and two future second round picks, and the Hornets get Eric Gordon, Chris Kaman, Al-Farouq Aminu, and most…

  15. Rip Hamilton clears waivers, will be Chicago Bull soon

    Dec 14, 2011, 2:53 PM EST

    Detroit Pistons  v Toronto Raptors

    Unlike what happened with Chauncey Billups ride to Miami (different situation), nobody has gotten in the way of Richard Hamilton landing with the Chicago Bulls. Hamilton — you know him as Rip — was bought out by the Pistons but has cleared the waiver wire and is now free to sign with the Chicago Bulls,…

The Orlando Magic have cut off all trade talks for Howard, according to a tweet from Adrian Wojnarowski. Magic decided to take Dwight Howard off market,…

    Our morning look around the NBA with stories worth reading and notes that are not their own post here at PBT. Steve Kerr absolutely rips Dan Gilbert. And he’s right. Andre Iguodala is impressing at Sixers camp. Shawn Kemp award contestant: DeSagana Diop said that he is 25 lbs overweight. The Lakers and Knicks lead…

  18. Chris Paul update: Clippers waiting for league, Lakers trying to get back in

    Dec 13, 2011, 9:02 PM EST

    Chris Paul, Quincy Pondexter

    The entire Chris Paul saga reminds me of the NBA lockout, just flipped on its head. In the lockout, the owners and league made wild demands of the players, and since the owners had the leverage they got most of what they wanted (they got the money, which is what mattered most). With CP3, the…

    Our morning look around the NBA with stories worth reading and notes that are not their own post here at PBT. The 50 worst haircuts in NBA history. Vladimir Radmanovic is way too low at No. 12. Despite the reports to the contrary, the Nets do not have a deadline to get Dwight Howard or…

  20. Report: Clippers walk away from Chris Paul talks. Again.

    Dec 13, 2011, 9:50 AM EST

    Chris Paul, Quincy Pondexter

    “Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of Chris Paul’s career with the Hornets….” The Chris Paul soap opera continues. The Clippers have basically moved on from the Paul talks again, according to David Aldridge at NBA.com (and Adrian Wojnaarowski at Yahoo). This is the same thing that happened on Monday — the…

    Dec 13, 2011, 8:04 AM EST

    DeAndre Jordan, Corey Maggette

    The Clippers are still looking at major shakeups to their lineup — trying to bring in Chauncey Billups, which could add Eric Bledsoe to a deal to acquire Chris Paul out of New Orleans — but they also want to keep their young front line together. The Clippers matched Golden State’s offer for DeAndre Jordan…

    billups-knicks

    Well, so much for the whole Chris Paul thing. The Clippers put in the high bid among multiple teams to claim Chauncey Billups off waivers, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo. Now the real question — will Billups retire or will he play for the Clippers? Billups has threatened retirement if he didn’t get sent to…

  23. Plenty of teams want in the Chauncey Billups sweepstakes

    Dec 12, 2011, 4:50 PM EST

    Knicks Celtics Basketball

    All the cool kids want Chauncey Billups on their team. Dwight Howard — who has already complained the Magic don’t listen to his player advice — wants him, tweets Marc Stein of ESPN. One of “changes” Dwight Howard wants is signing of Chauncey. If DH12 stays, sources say he’ll urge Billups to spurn Heat and…

    It sounds a lot worse than it apparently is. Carmelo Anthony hyperextended his right knee when he stepped on the foot of rookie Iman Shumpert, according to tweets from Frank Isola of the New York Daily News and Marc Berman of the New York Post. The Knicks say he is day-to-day, which doesn’t sound too…

  25. Knicks really want Jamal Crawford. Don’t bet on it happening.

    Dec 12, 2011, 1:27 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    The New York Knicks are working hard to get Jamal Crawford. Andy Miller, Crawford’s agent, is working really hard to get Crawford back to the Knicks. But unless he’s willing to take a big paycut, it’s not going to happen. The Knicks have already offered Crawford their mini mid-level of $2.5 million according to the…
