  1. Victor Oladipo says “I really didn’t want to go to Cleveland” (then tries to retract it)

    Sep 13, 2013, 10:43 AM EDT

    via @NBA twitter

    Sports stars are learning what politicians have started to learn — in today’s media environment your comments are not just heard by the small audience in front of you. Your comments are national, they are everywhere. (Politicians love to tell each audience what they want to hear, but do that today and the inconsistencies in…

    Sep 13, 2013, 10:14 AM EDT

    DeQuan Jones

    DeQuan Jones played in 63 games with the Orlando Magic last season and was a regular part of the rotation, but with Victor Oladipo coming in Jones was out. Since then he hasn’t been able to find a landing spot. He’s going to go training camp with the Sacramento Kings on a non-guaranteed deal, reports…

  3. Magic to use Victor Oladipo at both guard spots

    Sep 13, 2013, 8:43 AM EDT

    Victor Oladipo

    At Summer League, the Orlando Magic decided to play just drafted Victor Oladipo at the point in what was seen then as an experiment — could the rookie really play the position? The answer seemed to be no. Or at best, he has a lot of work to do before you put him there. But…

    Tyler Hansbrough, Glen Davis

    Glen Davis, who missed much of the last Orlando Magic season after foot surgery, should be ready to go at the start of training camp. Davis is expected to be cleared for basketball activities by the end of month, right about when training camp starts, reports Marc Spears of Yahoo Sports. Does that mean he’ll…

  7. Magic to baby Glen Davis as he returns from foot injury

    Sep 3, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Tyler Hansbrough, Glen Davis

    The Orlando Magic are not tanking. Don’t suggest that they are. However, if it took a little longer than scheduled for veteran forward “Big Baby” Glen Davis to get back on the court following his second foot surgery, is that such a bad thing? The Magic have said they plan to baby… er, be cautious…

  8. Two months later, Magic and Turkoglu closer to buyout

    Sep 2, 2013, 11:59 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    Hedo Turkoglu will not be a member of the Orlando Magic next season. Bet on it. He likely isn’t in the NBA. He has an offer waiting back in Turkey that will be better than any offer he is getting in this country, smart money says that is where he ends up. But before we…

  9. FIBA Americas schedule features Canada vs. Brazil on Sunday

    Sep 1, 2013, 11:30 AM EDT

    Axier Sucre, Diego Bareiro

    The FIBA Americas tournament enters Day 3 on Sunday after a solid first two days of action. Sunday’s games don’t feature the marquee matchups that littered Friday and Saturday, but the first contest of the day should be worth watching. Canada and Brazil are both in the conversation for the Final Four next weekend, a…

  10. FIBA Americas results and recap, featuring Jack Michael Martinez vs. Luis Scola

    Sep 1, 2013, 9:00 AM EDT

    Argentina's LuisScola goes for a basket against Martinez of Dominican Republic during their FIBA Americas Championship basketball game in Caracas

    The 2013 FIBA Americas tournament finished its second day of action on Saturday night. The games that were supposed to be the best ended up being the most lopsided but, on the bright side, even those games were relatively fun to watch for a weekend in August. Saturday’s featured game, according to your’s truly, took…

  11. Kevin Durant, Michael Beasley starred at Goodman League’s Roundball Classic

    Aug 31, 2013, 12:37 PM EDT

    BASKET-TPE-US-NBA

    The allure of pro-am basketball isn’t what it was during the 2011 NBA lockout, but watching the best players in the world play basketball — wherever they’re at and regardless of their opponents — is still fun to watch on a lazy August day. And, because of that, we’re bringing you highlights of the 2013…

  12. FIBA Americas Tournament schedule continues with Canada vs. Puerto Rico

    Aug 31, 2013, 10:00 AM EDT

    Puerto Rico's Jose Barea goes for a basket against Brazil during their FIBA Americas Championship basketball game in Caracas

    Friday’s action was fine at the FIBA Americas tournament down in Venezuala, but Saturday’s games should offer a bit more intrigue. Four of the top five teams will be in action in the second day of round-robin play, featuring an interesting matchup of Canada against Puerto Rico. Both teams take 1-0 records into the first…

    Puerto Rico's Balkman goes for a basket against Brazil's Giovannoni during their FIBA Americas Championship basketball game in Caracas

    The 2013 FIBA Americas tournament tipped off on Friday in Caracas, Venezuela, with teams from North, South and Central America attempting to move one step closer to playing in the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. It’s still a bit early to be talking about that since the tournament won’t end until September 11, but…

  14. John Salley talks about veganism and the NBA

    Aug 29, 2013, 11:19 PM EDT

    Sports Spectacular 2013 - Inside

    The NBA can be a pretty testosterone driven world — and in that world men eat meat. Lots of it. Maybe boiled chicken breasts, maybe steaks, Kobe Bryant mixes in the odd In-n-Out burger as his vice (which is better than 5 Guys, but that’s another debate for another day). But there are vegetarians in…

  15. DeQuan Jones doesn’t like NCAA’s Manziel ruling

    Aug 29, 2013, 3:46 PM EDT

    DeQuan Jones

    DeQuan Jones played four years at the University of Miami, but he wasn’t really considered an NBA prospect. That said he got in with the Magic and hung with them last season, getting in 63 games and being a regular part of the rotation. Not a good part, really, but part. Then the Magic drafted…

    Team USA had a mini-camp workout for some younger players this summer, but that was basically it for the senior men’s team. USA Basketball largely gets to take the summer off and gear up for the World Championships in Spain next summer. But much of the rest of the world is going at it in…

  17. Victor Oladipo holds his own with Kevin Durant at Goodman League (VIDEO)

    Aug 27, 2013, 1:25 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant

    Magic rookie to be Victor Oladipo could not stop Kevin Durant from scoring at the Goodman League the other day. When you can find somebody who can stop Durant from scoring (besides than Russell Westbrook in selfish mode), let me know. But Oladipo held his own — watch the highlights (we showed you some shorter…

  18. Report: Turkoglu has $3.5 million offer to play in Turkey

    Aug 27, 2013, 10:26 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    As of right now, Hedo Turkoglu is a member of the Orlando Magic, he is under contract to them. The question is will he be one when training camp starts. He’s not going to play much in Orlando — they are a rebuilding team playing their young guys and the 13-year NBA veteran is not…

  19. Kelly Olynyk, C.J. McCollum fare well in annual rookie survey

    Aug 27, 2013, 9:04 AM EDT

    Kelly Olynyk

    We already told you that when asked during the rookie photo shoot who their favorite player in the league was, the majority of incoming NBA players said Kobe Bryant. But those rookies to be were asked a lot more, too — and it was the Celtics Kelly Olynyk and the Trail Blazers’ C.J. McCollum who…

    Kevin_Durant-174-186_20933

    By the end of this week FIBA Americas starts, then on Sept. 7 we get EuroBasket — actual competitive basketball with something (pride at least) on the line. For now, we have pro-ams, and the best one going is probably in Washington DC where Victor Oladipo and Kevin Durant showed up to put on a…

  21. Should NBA referees wear Google glass?

    Aug 20, 2013, 10:52 AM EDT

    Victor Oladipo

    This is not very likely to happen — the league wouldn’t let Victor Oladipo wear Google Glass to the NBA Draft, so they’re not about to let them wear it in games. But should they — wear glasses that record and upload what they see so we can see, so the league office can see…

  22. Mike Woodson says he has ‘no idea who’s going to start’ for Knicks next season

    Aug 14, 2013, 10:18 PM EDT

    Image (1) woodson-thumb-250x172-10475.jpg for post 1651

    The Knicks have the majority of their core returning from last year’s team that finished the regular season second in the Eastern Conference standings behind only the eventual champion Miami Heat. But minutes or even positions won’t be guaranteed next year, because New York has added some key pieces this summer that the team hopes…

  23. It’s official: Al Harrington is a Washington Wizard

    Aug 14, 2013, 12:03 PM EDT

    Al Harrington

    We’ve been telling you this is coming for days, but now it is official: Al Harrington is a Wizard. The team made the announcement (CSNWashington.com has some additional details). This is a one-year deal for the veteran minimum. “Al’s all-around game and reputation as a leader make him a solid fit with our team,” Wizards…

  24. Al Harrington says winning wasn’t on the agenda in Orlando last season

    Aug 13, 2013, 2:51 PM EDT

    Al Harrington

    Al Harrington is feeling healthy once again, and should he pass a team physical, he’ll be playing for the Wizards next season. Harrington is a 15-year NBA veteran, and like most in his situation, he wants to play for a team that’s focused on winning instead of rebuilding, as the Orlando Magic were last season.…

  25. If he passes physical, Harrington will sign with Wizards

    Aug 13, 2013, 12:20 PM EDT

    Al Harrington

    Washington has bigs on its roster but nobody they consider a stretch four, and with Nene on the block and the slashing of John Wall into the paint, they need a big to space the floor. So they went hard after Al Harrington when he became a free agent. And if he passes his physical…
