    The Nets announced the signing of Jason Collins to a 10-day contract on Sunday, making him the first openly gay, active professional athlete to play for any of the four major professional sports leagues in the country. While that’s a milestone certainly worth celebrating, the best part of the Collins signing is that it has…

    Feb 23, 2014, 12:29 PM EDT

    Jason Collins

    Glen Davis has chosen his old coach over his old teammate. Well, that’s not the whole story. It appears Davis will choose the Los Angeles Clippers as his next destination, a spot where he moves to a team on the cusp of contending (how close is up for debate) where they are in desperate need…

    Newly acquired Brooklyn Net's NBA player Kevin Garnett listens during a news conference introducing him in Brooklyn

    There are plenty of teams interested in signing Glen Davis for the remainder of the season after he agreed to a buyout of his contract with the Orlando Magic.

    NBA player Jason Collins marches in the Gay Pride Parade in Boston

    The Nets are reportedly considering signing Jason Collins to a 10-day contract, though they’d like to see how things shake out with Glen Davis first before going down that road. Collins hasn’t played since last season, but made headlines by coming out as gay once his team was eliminated from postseason contention. It was a…

    What everyone has expected has become official: The Orlando Magic and Glen Davis have reached an agreement on a buyout. Once Davis clears waivers and the buyout is official, he will be a free agent. The real question is where does he land now? He is being recruited by former coach Doc Rivers to the…

    Glen Davis has been up and down for the Magic this season, but has a unique skill set that could benefit a whole host of teams. And Orlando, in the midst of a rebuilding phase has a number of young players they’d like to check out instead of giving the somewhat established Davis those minutes.…

  7. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Thunder, Heat on top coming up to trade deadline

    Feb 17, 2014, 8:16 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Los Angeles Lakers

    Today’s PBT NBA Power Rankings — brought to you by the technology of airplane wi-fi — will talk about the All-Star weekend past and the trade deadline coming up, as there weren’t many other games to speak of. 1. Thunder (43-12, Last Week No. 1). Their addition at the trade deadline is simply getting Russell…

    Feb 15, 2014, 10:15 PM EDT

    2014 Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    NEW ORLEANS — Damian Lillard’s busy All-Star Saturday night started out pretty darn well — with a repeat win. Lillard will be in all three major events on the evening and first out of the gate he and Trey Burke teamed up to win the NBA All-Star Saturday Skills Challenge — by just one tenth…

  9. There is zero chance the Knicks trade Carmelo Anthony, can we stop talking about it?

    Feb 11, 2014, 1:44 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v New York Knicks

    I’ve been surprised how often this has come up lately. During radio talk show interviews, in emails, I even had a friend ask me: Are the Knicks trading Carmelo Anthony? No. Not even close. I’m not sure how this delusion even became a talking point. Yes, the Knicks do know Anthony can opt out of…

  10. Report: Wizards interested in Nuggets’ Andre Miller, but a trade is difficult

    Feb 11, 2014, 12:36 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Denver Nuggets

    It’s always about the money. As we near the trade deadline remember that: It is always about the money. The Washington Wizards could argue they are the third best team in the East. It’s a dubious honor this season and the title seems to change hands weekly between the Wizards, Raptors and Nets, but all…

  11. Minnesota’s Flip Saunders says strength of draft could dampen trade deadline

    Feb 10, 2014, 3:53 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves 2013 NBA Draft Picks Shabazz Muhammad and Gorgui Dieng Introduced to the Media

    Last season’s trade deadline was a lot of sound and fury signifying nothing — it was a very slow trade deadline, the bigger deals having already happened. This season seems to be more active and with some bigger names — Pau Gasol could be moved, as potentially could guys like Greg Monroe. Names like Brandon…

  12. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Thunder stay on top, Bucks stay on bottom

    Feb 10, 2014, 3:24 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    More and more I think Adam Silver’s first NBA Finals as commissioner will feature Indiana and Oklahoma City — which would be good basketball but not exactly Super Bowl ratings. Things can change, but those are the two best teams right now.   1 Thunder (41-12, Last Week No. 1). We gave been praising Kevin…

  13. Report: Teams reaching out to Celtics about Brandon Bass

    Feb 10, 2014, 1:22 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Boston Celtics

    Boston is expected to be an active team at the trade deadline — they are a franchise looking ahead to the draft and rebuilding, plus they have some assets that are attractive to other teams. Brandon Bass is apparently at the top of that list. The veteran big man is generating a lot of calls…

  14. Orlando Magic mascot proposed to Kate Upton… she didn’t say no

    Feb 10, 2014, 12:48 PM EDT

    via @STUFF_Mascot on twitter

    This would be the biggest story out of Sunday’s Orlando Magic comeback win over the Pacers — sorry Victor Oladipo, you played fantastically in the fourth quarter to spark the win, but this is bigger: Stuff, the Orlando Magic mascot, proposed to Kate Upton Sunday — and went with the Dumb and Dumber reference to…

  15. Sunday night NBA grades: It’s Kevin Durant’s world we just live in it

    Feb 10, 2014, 3:08 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Oklahoma City Thunder

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while watching Jeopardy to see what all the Arthur Chu fuss is about…. Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City Thunder. If you are going to win the MVP award you need a couple monster games on national television. Durant delivered that on Sunday — 41 points, 10…

  16. Paul George with the flying dunk over Orlando’s Glen Davis (VIDEO)

    Feb 9, 2014, 11:00 PM EDT

    Paul George

    The Magic won their second consecutive game against one of the league’s elite, holding on to beat the Pacers on Sunday after taking care of the Thunder just two nights earlier. Paul George had one of the better highlights in the losing effort, however, flying high for this first quarter jam that he was able…

  17. Tobias Harris dunks at the buzzer to send Magic to win over Thunder (VIDEO)

    Feb 7, 2014, 10:56 PM EDT

    Tobias Harris

    The Thunder built a lead that reached as many as 17 points in Orlando on Friday, only to see it all come crashing down on the game’s very last play. The lead remained at double digits late in the third quarter, before the Magic slowly began to chip away. OKC was clinging to a one-point…

  18. 2014 Rising Stars Challenge rosters set; Anthony Davis taken with first overall pick

    faried rising stars

    The Rising Stars Challenge kicks off the All-Star weekend festivities that Friday night, and features a mix of the game’s top rookies and sophomores competing in the exhibition. Teams used to be separated by seniority, which often times meant a blowout victory for the second-year players. But the league has since created a draft of…

  19. 2014 Three-Point Contest field features five All-Stars

    Feb 6, 2014, 9:41 PM EDT

    Foot Locker Three-Point Contest

    Kyrie Irving will defend his title at the 2014 Three-Point Contest in New Orleans, and to win it for the second straight year he’ll have to beat a field that, at least on paper, appears to be pretty stacked. In addition to Irving, the east will be represented by Arron Afflalo, Bradley Beal, and Joe Johnson.…

  20. All-Stars Damian Lillard, DeMar DeRozan highlight field for 2014 Skills Challenge

    Feb 6, 2014, 8:11 PM EDT

    Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    It seems redundant at this point to list Damian Lillard as part of the lineup for any of All-Star weekends many events, considering he’s participating in all of them. But he, along with DeMar DeRozan are the two 2014 All-Stars who will be taking part in the Skills Challenge event on All-Star Saturday night. The…

  21. The Extra Pass: Blake Griffin’s alternate reality; plus Wednesday’s recaps

    Los Angeles Clippers v Miami Heat

    Tell me if this sounds at all familiar. 24 years old, about 6-foot-8, 6-foot-9. Roughly 250 pounds. Stronger and faster than just about everyone. Phenomenal basketball IQ. Highly skilled, but often criticized for what he can’t do instead of appreciated for what he does. That’s Blake Griffin. And at one point, that was LeBron James,…

  22. Detroit Pistons finally alter starting lineup

    Feb 5, 2014, 6:02 PM EDT

    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Kyle Singler

    After weeks and weeks of everyone clamoring for the Pistons to change their starting lineup, they’ve finally done it. But Josh Smith, Greg Monroe and Andre Drummond – who excel in pairs, just not as a trio – will still be starting together in the frontcourt. Instead Kyle Singler will replace Kentavious Caldwell-Pope at shooting…

    Philadelphia 76ers v Sacramento Kings

    Right now we are in the “there’s a lot of talking” phase of the trade season — the trade deadline is Feb. 20 and GMs around the league are trying to gauge the value of their players and see what other teams are asking for theirs. Names such as Arron Afflalo and Glen Davis in…

  24. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Adam Silver signs the balls, Kevin Durant keeps shooting them

    Feb 3, 2014, 2:21 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Brooklyn Nets

    A look at PBT’s power rankings show basically the only thing that really changed this week was the signature on the Spaulding balls — Adam Silver’s signature is in play. Aside that Durant has the Thunder on top and the Lakers continue fall like the lead balloon they are. 1. Thunder (38-11, Last Week No.…

  25. The Extra Pass: What the NBA gets that the NFL doesn’t, plus Sunday’s recap

    Feb 3, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v New York Knicks

    This past weekend, David Stern retired as commissioner of the NBA. After 30 years, he left as quietly as someone of his stature could. Instead of choosing a time where the NBA was in the spotlight to have his final farewell, Stern left in the middle of Super Bowl hoopla, when the coverage of his…
