    Olympics Day 16 - Basketball

    Some names leaked yesterday for inclusion on the 2014-16 USA Basketball men’s national-team roster – the pool of players who will be considered for upcoming international events. That includes the World Cup of Basketball this summer, possibly 2015 Olympic qualifiers  – and, of course, the 2016 Rio Olympics. Marc Stein of ESPN beat today’s official announcement with…

Today features a 10-game slate, and we’ll provide live updates, highlights and recaps here as the day goes on. 1:15 a.m. ET Tuesday: Pacers 102, Warriors 94 (FINAL): The second half of this game felt like a playoff game, down to the…

  10. The Extra Pass: Behind San Antonio’s hot start and Monday’s recaps

    Nov 26, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Atlanta Hawks

    At least in the standings, the San Antonio Spurs are as good as they’ve ever been. By walloping the New Orleans Pelicans on Monday, San Antonio tied their franchise best for a start to the season. The Spurs are 13-1 now and winners of 11 straight games. What can you say? I ran out of…

  11. The Extra Pass: 10 teams, 10 observations, plus Tuesday recaps

    Nov 6, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Chuck Hayes, Paul Millsap

    Let’s zip around the league with ten observations for ten teams: Atlanta: I’m digging the former Jazz men. Paul Millsap is already getting along famously with Al Horford, but the smart movement off the ball by flex-bred wingmen Kyle Korver and DeMarre Carroll is keeping defenses off guard. This is a really unselfish offense already,…

  12. The Extra Pass: Clippers offensive fireworks cover up struggling defense, plus Monday recaps

    Nov 5, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Doc Rivers

    LOS ANGELES — The Clippers know how to put on a show — they dropped a highflying 137 points on the Rockets and blew the up-and-coming team out of the water. Through four games the Clippers are averaging 116.7 points per 100s possessions, that is almost 7 points better than the second place team (Houston).…

  13. Nowitzki ejected for hit to Casspi’s head, can expect a fine (VIDEO)

    Oct 22, 2013, 2:18 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki,Omri Casspi

    There was no malicious intent here — Dirk Nowitzki was going for the ball and the spectacular chase-down block. But instead he smacked Omri Casspi upside the head while the Rockets forward was going for a dunk. The referees reviewed it and rightfully called it a flagrant two, then ejected Nowitzki from Monday night’s preseason…

  14. Houston’s point guard battle still interesting, up in the air

    Oct 22, 2013, 12:39 PM EDT

    BASKET-US-TAIWAN-TPE-NBA-PACERS-ROCKETS-LIN

    Monday night the focus around the Houston Rockets was how Omer Asik and Dwight Howard would play together. And the answer was Asik was really rusty and so the whole thing was awkward, but it’s too early to tell how it ends (probably with an Asik trade). However, I still find the point guard battle…

    Houston Rockets Introduce Dwight Howard

    Last season: The Rockets began the year with the somewhat surprising trade for James Harden — surprising because of the Thunder’s choice to deal him so soon instead of pursuing a title with him in place for one more season. It was the right call on Houston’s part, as Harden immediately turned into the offensive…

  16. Cavaliers still searching for small forward to replace that guy who left town

    Oct 14, 2013, 10:33 AM EDT

    Earl Clark, Miroslav Raduljica

    Since LeBron James bolted Cleveland for Miami, the small forward spot has been a black hole for the Cavaliers. There was Jamario Moon. Then Omri Casspi. Then Alonzo Gee, who is still on the roster. Now Earl Clark is getting a shot. Not exactly a murderer’s row. The Cavaliers have built a team they like…

    Kyrie Irving

    Last season: Kyrie Irving became the youngest All-Star since LeBron James, but the Cavaliers were decidedly awful throughout the year, finishing 24-58. Only the Bobcats were worse both offensively and defensively, Injuries took a major toll (more on that below), but the season never looked promising at any point, regardless. On the bright side, Dion…

  18. Winners and losers to this point in NBA free agency

    Jul 7, 2013, 11:00 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers Introduce Chris Paul

    Teams began entering into agreements with free agent players shortly after midnight Eastern on July 1, but due to a league-imposed moratorium on activity, no deals can be officially signed until July 10. We’re almost there, and plenty of the top names available have indeed been swooped up by teams looking to make a splash…

  19. Omri Casspi agrees to two-year deal with the Rockets

    Jul 6, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    Omri Casspi

    When I spoke with Omri Casspi last month in Italy at adidas Eurocamp, he wasn’t yet sure if the Cavaliers would extend him the qualifying offer necessary to make him a restricted free agent. But after playing for losing teams in each of his first four NBA seasons, Casspi wasn’t only looking for a new…

  20. 2013 adidas Eurocamp: Day 2 recap

    Jun 10, 2013, 9:15 AM EDT

    Adidas Eurocamp - Day 2

    TREVISO, Italy — The camp’s second day was lighter on the competition for the older, draft eligible international prospects, and was focused instead on drills, coaching, and showcasing the younger teams in attendance. There was only one game featuring the event’s main attractions, and it was used by two Brazilian players to dominate the action.…

  21. Report: Cavs, Casspi talking buyout, Rockets could grab him

    Feb 28, 2013, 1:52 PM EDT

    Omri Casspi

    Omri Casspi just hasn’t worked out in Cleveland. The forward from Israel showed promise early on in Sacramento but had fallen out of the Cavaliers rotation this season, and that was before his appendectomy recently that will have him out a month at least. So the Cavaliers are talking about a buyout, reports Marc Stein…

  22. Cavaliers’ Omri Casspi hospitalized after appendectomy

    Feb 24, 2013, 2:26 PM EDT

    Omri Casspi

    We were a little concerned Saturday night when forward Omri Casspi missed the game with notes he was taken to the hospital for stomach issues. Turns out he needed his appendix removed and had surgery Saturday, reports the Associated Press. He will be re-evaluated on Sunday but is going to miss some times. That’s not…

  23. Fear of tax may make this slower-than-usual trade deadline

    Feb 19, 2013, 7:59 AM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Phoenix Suns

    All-Star weekend usually signals the official start of a frenzied week of rumors and eventually trades in the NBA. Everybody is in town — this year Houston — and general managers are talking face-to-face rather than texting and by Tuesday trades are picking up steam. But maybe not this year. If there was a buzz…

  25. Omri Casspi says he is happy to be in Cleveland

    Jan 8, 2013, 10:45 AM EDT

    Omri Casspi

    Over the weekend, a report came out that Cavaliers forward Omri Casspi (through his agent) had asked to be traded out of Cleveland. Monday the Cleveland media asked Casspi about it, and of course his answer was basically “I love Cleveland, who wouldn’t?” From the Plain Dealer: “Of course, I like Cleveland,” Casspi said before…
