  1. Reports: Eric Bledsoe trade rumors include Redick, Mayo

    Jul 1, 2013, 6:05 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Milwaukee Bucks - Game Three

    We told you once Chris Paul said he was in for next season the Clippers would get serious about moving Eric Bledsoe. And Chris Paul says he is all in with the Clips. So expect new trade rumors for Bledsoe to start popping up, such as this one from Ramona Shelburne of ESPN Los Angeles:…

  2. Andre Iguodala a riskier free agent than meets the eye

    Jun 30, 2013, 8:30 PM EDT

    Phoenix Suns v Denver Nuggets

    Which of these players would you have most liked on your team last season: Andres Nocioni, Baron Davis, Brendan Haywood, Charlie Bell, Chris Mihm, Corey Maggette, Damien Wilkins, Earl Watson, Elton Brand, Fred Jones, Hedo Turkoglu, Joel Przybilla, John Salmons, Lamar Odom, Mehmet Okur, Metta World Peace, Michael Redd, Rashard Lewis, Rasual Butler, Ricky Davis,…

  3. Report: Raptors also talking to Clippers about Eric Bledsoe

    Jun 29, 2013, 6:32 PM EDT

    DeMar DeRozan

    Once Chris Paul formally signs on the dotted line, it will not be long before Eric Bledsoe is moved. While Doc Rivers may wonder what a CP3/Bledsoe backcourt looks like, there are other holes on this roster and Bledsoe is a key trade piece to fill one. We know the Clippers are talking to the…

  4. Trey Burke ready to compete with new teammate point guards right now

    Jun 26, 2013, 2:33 PM EDT

    Michigan v Louisville

    NEW YORK – When Trey Burke committed to Michigan, the Wolverines still had Darius Morris. Though Morris’ NBA success as a Lakers second-round pick has been moderate at best, he was a star at Michigan. Morris left early for the NBA before Burke arrived in Ann Arbor, but Burke’s preparation for playing with Morris could…

  5. Report: Eric Bledsoe for Arron Afflalo trade talks heating up

    Jun 25, 2013, 9:05 PM EDT

    Eric Bledsoe, Jerryd Bayless

    Of all the multitude of trade rumors around Eric Bledsoe, one stood out as making the most sense — Bledsoe to the Magic for Arron Afflalo. That trade talk appears to be picking up steam as we head toward the draft, according to a tag team report at ESPN. The Orlando Magic and Los Angeles…

  6. Mark Cuban plans to lure top free agents by giving them roster input

    Jun 17, 2013, 4:36 PM EDT

    Mark Cuban

    The Mavericks enter the off-season as one of the major players in free agency. Not only do  they have money to spend, but they also have a history of championship level contention, a still very good Dirk Nowitzki, and Mark Cuban to close the deal when it’s time to make the pitch on why the…

  7. Otto Porter’s agent seems quite certain Porter won’t slip past No. 3 in draft

    Jun 12, 2013, 11:38 PM EDT

    Otto Porter Jr., John Thompson III

    Otto Porter is one of the most polished prospects in the NBA Draft. He showed an ability to run Georgetown’s offense, and his smooth jumper gave him success off the ball, too. He has ideal size for his position in the NBA, which made him a good defender in college. Porter is also younger than…

  8. LeBron, Durant, Kobe headline All NBA First Team

    May 23, 2013, 1:27 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    Even before the season tipped off you had a pretty good sense that LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Chris Paul would be All-NBA First Team — they are dominant players at or entering their peak. But Kobe Bryant and Tim Duncan continue to defy father time. The two veterans round out the All NBA Team…

  9. Damian Lillard, Anthony Davis headline NBA All-Rookie Team

    May 14, 2013, 2:39 PM EDT

    APTOPIX Rookie of Year Basketball

    It was an interesting year for rookies. Damian Lillard stood out as the point guard Portland needed, but he had the advantage of talent around him that other promising players (Anthony Davis, Andre Drummond) did not. Then there were good young players like Jonas Valanciunas flying under the radar in Toronto. So picking the NBA…

  10. Nate Robinson: The people’s champion

    May 7, 2013, 1:50 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game One

    If you only watch the last quarter of NBA playoff games, you have to be asking, “what is not to love about Nate Robinson?” We love the plucky underdog and Robinson is that — a guy listed at 5-foot-9 who has won the dunk contest twice. A guy leading a Bulls team so banged up…

  11. Pacers’ playoff-best offense disintegrates in Atlanta

    Apr 27, 2013, 10:58 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    Devin Harris needed just 4.5 seconds to slice through the Pacers’ defense for a layup late in the first half, leaving only 1.8 seconds for the Pacers. George Hill launched a desperation heave that obviously missed, but the look was only marginally better than the shots Indiana got most of the game. The Hawks’ offense…

  12. NBA Power Rankings: Heat end rankings where they ended last season

    Apr 15, 2013, 7:43 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, Mike Miller, Mario Chalmers

    For the final power rankings of the year my criteria are simple: Who do I think is most likely to win a seven game series between the teams right now. It is essentially a playoff rankings. 1. Heat (64-16, last week ranked No. 1). For a couple games this week the Heat rolled out their…

  13. Tobias Harris hits three to force overtime vs. Bucks (VIDEO)

    Apr 11, 2013, 10:21 AM EDT

    Tobias Harris

    Way back in Summer League, PBT was trying to tell you that Tobias Harris could play. He was on the Bucks roster but with them having a few veterans and trying to make the playoffs, Scott Skiles (then Jim Boylan) buried him on the bench. Harris was traded to Orlando where young guys get the…

    Apr 11, 2013, 2:45 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers Bryant leaves the court against the Portland Trail Blazers after their NBA game in Portland

    On a busy night in the NBA we need to give out a few honorable mentions for top stars. One goes to Andre Drummond, who had 29 points and 11 rebounds on the night. He could have been in the Rookie of the Year conversation if Lawrence Frank hadn’t sat on his minutes in the…

  16. Three Stars of the Night: Three All-Stars lead teams to wins

    Apr 8, 2013, 12:31 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    This was a tough night to narrow the list to three, some guys with huge games miss the cut — Russell Westbrook with 36 points and a near triple-double, Nikola Vucevic with 21 points and 21 boards for the Magic. But there was a key theme to go with for the night — current or…

    Mar 30, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Al Harrington

  20. LeBron throws down one alley-oop pass, makes another (VIDEO)

    Mar 26, 2013, 4:15 PM EDT

    Chris Andersen, E'Twaun Moore, Norris Cole, LeBron James

    You know that whole rule about not turning the ball over against the Miami Heat because it can lead to easy buckets and spectacular dunks that fire them up? Orlando forgot about that in the second half Monday. Well, that or they are Orlando and couldn’t stop what was happening anyway. First up is poor…

  21. Suspension over, Hedo Turkoglu can return to Magic

    Mar 26, 2013, 3:49 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Dallas Mavericks

    Well, this should solve everything. Hedo Turkoglu can return to the Magic Wednesday night against the Bobcats following his 20 game suspension for testing positive for methenolone, an anabolic steroid. Turkoglu said at the time of the suspension that he was given the drug back in his native Turkey last summer by a trainer, that…

  22. LeBron, Heat follow familiar pattern to 27th straight victory

    Mar 25, 2013, 11:33 PM EDT

    Mario Chalmers, LeBron James

    There are some more interesting tests ahead on the schedule this week — Chicago, a New Orleans team that just ended the Nuggets win streak, then San Antonio. Games where the Heat can’t just coast along and flip a switch. But they did follow that pattern again Monday — and it worked again. The Heat…

  23. Dwyane Wade to sit out Monday, miss second straight game

    Mar 25, 2013, 6:48 PM EDT

    Dwyade Wade

    The Miami Heat are focused on the playoffs and being healthy now, not the 26-game winning streak… plus if you’re going to rest a guy against the two worst teams in the league is the time to do it. Dwyane Wade will be out for the Heat on Monday night against Orlando, the team announced.…

    Kings Heat Basketball

    Obviously the Heat are undefeated in their last 10 games, but in the East the Brooklyn Nets are the only team with a better than .500 record in their last 10 games. Which is why after the Heat the next five spots on this list come from the Western Conference. 1. Heat (54-14, last week…
