  1. FIBA Americas Tournament became Renaldo Balkman show on Friday

    Aug 31, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. FIBA Americas tips off Friday. We breakdown why you might care.

    FIBA_Americas_Championship_Venezuela_FC

    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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. Kevin Durant, Victor Oladipo shine at Goodman League (VIDEO)

    Aug 26, 2013, 12:20 AM EDT

    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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. 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…

  12. 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.…

  13. 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…

  14. Magic let $17 million trade exception received in the Dwight Howard deal expire

    Aug 12, 2013, 2:26 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    When Orlando traded Dwight Howard to the Lakers last summer, the team did so with a long-term vision of entering a full-fledged rebuild in mind. Made simpler, it meant that unless something truly incredible came across the desk of Magic GM Rob Hennigan, that it was fairly likely that the $17.8 million traded player exception…

  15. Report: Al Harrington leaning toward signing with Wizards

    Aug 12, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Al Harrington

    Al Harrington could really help the team that snaps him up — two seasons ago he averaged 14.2 points a game, was a big who could stretch the floor all the way out to the three point line. That is he could help if he’s healthy. That’s the gamble. And it may be the Wizards…

  16. Who are Rookie of the Year favorites? Burke, Oladipo to start

    Aug 9, 2013, 1:15 PM EDT

    Trey Burke

    There’s a formula for who often wins the Rookie of the year. They have to be a good player, certainly. More than that, he needs to be a player with the ball in his hands and on a team where he is going to be asked to take on a lot of responsibility. Damian Lillard…

  17. Point guard Beno Udrih to sign with New York Knicks

    Aug 8, 2013, 10:37 AM EDT

    =vn19

    The Knicks have picked up a very solid third point guard for their roster. According to multiple reports, Beno Udrih has decided to sign with New York on a one-year deal for the veteran minimum (Al Iannazzone of Newsday was first). Through his nine NBA seasons Udrih has been steady if unspectacular — he averaged…

  18. Victor Oladipo talks draft, how things are different now with NBC Sports

    Aug 7, 2013, 7:15 PM EDT

    via @NBA twitter

    On the right, that’s Victor Oladipo, the first round pick of the Magic out Indiana, who has some real promise as part of the rebuilding going on in Florida. That is the Oladipo who was posterizing his fellow rookies and likes to wear Google Glass. On the left, that’s Kay Adams, who you certainly know…

  19. Report: Knicks, 76ers talking to Chris Duhon

    Aug 7, 2013, 2:42 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Los Angeles Lakers

    We know the Knicks are looking for one more point guard to add to their roster, they’ve had conversations with Jannero Pargo and Beno Udrih, but they are still looking around. The 76ers are still making additions to their roster as well. Both are in talks with free agent point guard Chris Duhon, reports Adrian…

  20. Victor Oladipo, Cody Zeller dunk all over other rookies (VIDEO)

    Aug 7, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Victor Oladipo, Cody Zeller

    Clearly, rookie photo day is taken very seriously. As part of the fun Indiana teammates last year Victor Oladipo and Cody Zeller set it up so Oladipo could dunk all over his fellow rookies — on a trash-can rim with what I guess is a NERF ball. Doesn’t matter, getting dunked on is getting dunked…

  21. A few more images out of Rookie photo shoot day

    Aug 7, 2013, 2:57 AM EDT

    Trey Burke

    As we’ve been telling you, Tuesday was Rookie Photo Shoot day in the NBA — we’ve brought you some fun images and a couple good dunks. Tomorrow we’ll have some other fun stuff from the day. But for now here are some of the official photos of the day that I liked. No. 1 pick…

  22. NBA releases 2013-14 schedule, here are your opening night and Christmas Day matchups

    Aug 6, 2013, 6:51 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat

    After several notable leaks over the past couple of weeks, we finally have the official version of the 2013-14 NBA schedule. Let’s get right to it by taking a look at the slate for some of the key dates in the season. OPENING NIGHT: Tuesday, October 29 MAGIC at PACERS: The first game of the…

  23. A few early highlights from NBA rookie photo shoot

    Aug 6, 2013, 2:12 PM EDT

    via @nba twitter

    Today is the NBA rookie photo shoot, where usually some pretty cool and inventive shots are taken. But the first stuff coming out on the NBA’s twitter account are just more fun. Enjoy. Jamaal Franklin: Kelly Olynyk: The Pistons rookies: Shabazz Muhammad: Victor Oladipo:

  24. Nikola Pekovic will miss EuroBasket while waiting on new NBA contract

    Aug 6, 2013, 12:12 PM EDT

    Nikola Pekovic, Brandon Bass

    Nikola Pekovic will not be competing for Montenegro in next month’s EuroBasket championships. The Minnesota Timberwolves’ center was expected to be an important part of his team’s attempt to qualify for next year’s FIBA Championships and eventually the 2016 Olympics, but his contract situation with the NBA will prevent that from happening this year. Pekovic…

  25. Ralph Sampson says Rockets have built a “good foundation”

    Aug 6, 2013, 11:04 AM EDT

    ralph-sampson

    Ralph Sampson was part of the pitch to bring Dwight Howard to Houston — he’s a Hall of Famer and part of the Rockets history of big men. But like a guy who has been through the long grind of an NBA season, Sampson knows assembling good players is like having all the ingredients to…
