  1. Report: Nets to make big trade offer for Dwight Howard

    Nov 30, 2011, 10:02 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Charlotte Bobcats, Game 3

    New Jersey — soon to be Brooklyn — made a big move last year to get its first star in Deron Williams. Now owner Mikhail Prokhorov needs to get a second star and convince them both to stay. How about Dwight Howard? The Nets are going to make a big move to try and get…

  2. Report: Clippers will go hard after Dwight Howard

    Nov 29, 2011, 4:17 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin, Dwight Howard

    This is what a star like Blake Griffin can do for a franchise. A year ago, the Los Angeles Clippers were not on anybody’s radar as a free agent until they got desperate. Now, in one day they have popped up as a potential landing spot for the two biggest free agents on the market.…

  3. With rumors abound, Lakers near a franchise crossroads

    Nov 29, 2011, 1:00 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Two

    Though the formalization of the new CBA proceeds at a slow churn, the NBA rumor mill is already in mid-season form. Chris Paul and Dwight Howard — both in the final year of their respective contracts — are suddenly ready to be shipped every which way, and media outlets of every form are examining the…

  4. Rumor: Lakers to make run at Dwight Howard AND Chris Paul?

    Nov 29, 2011, 12:17 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard Chris Paul

    Now we know the lockout is officially over because ridiculous, outlandish Lakers trade rumors are flying around and gaining some momentum. Like the Lakers getting Chris Paul and Dwight Howard. Reality be damned. These ideas gain traction because Lakers fans dream big. Outlandishly big. Plus Lakers ownership can be bold. It’s one of the reasons…

  5. Billy Hunter outlines labor deal, steps remaining in memo

    Nov 29, 2011, 11:46 AM EDT

    NBPA Meet To Discuss Current CBA Offer

    You have questions… but mostly they revolve around finding a way for your favorite team to trade for Dwight Howard or maybe Rajon Rondo. NBA players have questions about the new NBA Collective Bargaining Agreement, too. Theirs mostly revolve around, “When can we get back to work and get paid? And how much are we…

  6. Report: Boston “open” to trading Rajon Rondo

    Nov 29, 2011, 9:34 AM EDT

    Rondo_Mavs

    We suggest before reading this report you have a shaker of salt with you. Unless you’re a Celtics fan, in which case you should have blood pressure medicine with you. But know up front we don’t totally buy this. Chris Broussard at ESPN has suggested the Celtics will listen to offers for All-Star point guard…

  7. Don’t expect many amnesty clause players this season

    Nov 28, 2011, 12:45 PM EDT

    Arenas magic

    Finally, thanks to an amnesty clause in the new labor deal, every NBA team can wipe one bad contract off their books and never have to deal with it again. A “get out of jail free” card for NBA GMs. We like to call it the Gilbert Arenas rule. That should lead to a flood…

  8. Winderman: Chris Paul rumors show why Hornets need owner fast

    Nov 28, 2011, 10:44 AM EDT

    Chris Paul, Carmelo Anthony

    Since the NBA last bounced a ball, one team has changed hands (Philadelphia) and another was sold only to have that deal fall apart (Atlanta). All the while, a franchise that might have as great an impact as any in reshaping the league remains in the hands of the league (New Orleans). While the NBA…

  9. Are the Knicks considering Kwame Brown? Apparently.

    Nov 28, 2011, 10:14 AM EDT

    Kwame Brown

    Free agent priority No. 1 for the Knicks — maintain projected cap space for next summer so they can try to bring in one more star player (cough* Chris Paul *cough). Priority No. 2: find a big defensive minded center, but one will take a one-year deal as not to screw up priority No. 1.…

  10. Dalembert considering Heat, Knicks, Rockets

    Nov 28, 2011, 12:52 AM EDT

    Samuel Dalembert

    Centers are at a premium in this league, that should be evident by now. Nene, Tyson Chandler, Marc Gasol, all will lead this free agency class. Dwight Howard headlines the next. Chandler’s defensive impact was a primary factor in the Mavericks winning the title. So Samuel Dalembert will be getting his fair share of calls…

  11. The Nets are very excited to make their problems worse in free agency

    Nov 27, 2011, 12:54 PM EDT

    Deron-Williams

    Here’s the best part about all the games lost and money squandered and damage done to the game in this lockout. All the attempts to curb spending are going to end with a free agency class getting considerably more than it deserves. It has some stars in it, but the best options are either facing…

  12. Heat, Knicks may be big winners in last minute deal changes

    Nov 26, 2011, 6:57 PM EDT

    NBA Finals Heat Mavericks Basketball

    Part of the motivation for the hardline owners during the NBA lockout was to never let what happened with LeBron James going to Miami to ever happen again. To never let what Carmelo Anthony did to the Nuggets ever happen again (they lost the ‘Melo part of the fight). Small market owners didn’t like players…

  13. Top 10 free agents when the lockout ends

    Nov 26, 2011, 5:30 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    On December 9th, assuming the deal is approved by both sides, players will re-enter training facilities for the first time since last spring to being working towards the NBA season. At the same time, NBA free agency for the 2011-2012 season will open, and all hell will break loose as teams scramble to sign their…

  14. What was finally decided with those “thorny” system issues?

    Nov 26, 2011, 4:10 PM EDT

    NBPA Meet To Discuss Current CBA Offer

    It was the most confounding part of this constantly confounding NBA lockout. The owners and players got to a point a few weeks ago where they essentially agreed on the money side of the equation — how to split up the revenue coming into the league — but could not get close on the “system”…

  15. What we know about the deal that ended the lockout so far

    Nov 26, 2011, 10:40 AM EDT

    NBA And Players Representatives Meet To Discuss Possible Settlement

    It’s less than eight hours after a bleary-eyed group of executives and attorneys shuffled into a small conference room at a New York office building to deliver the news: a tentative deal is in place. The lockout is over. Now begins the process of unraveling what happened and how, and determining what the new CBA…

  16. Report: Lamar Odom agrees to play in Turkey during lockout

    Nov 25, 2011, 1:50 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant And Phil Jackson Address The Media

    Only Billy Hunter and David Stern can now save us from “Khloe & Lamar in Istanbul.” There may be no greater reason to resolve the lockout and get the NBA players back to work. Lakers forward Lamar Odom has reached a deal to play with Besiktas in Turkey, joining the team that already has Deron…

  17. Video: Dwight Howard on Tonight Show with Jay Leno

    Nov 24, 2011, 4:01 PM EDT

    Disney XD'S "Kick Buttowski Suburban Daredevil" - Comic-Con 2011

    Dwight Howard was on the Jay Leno show Wednesday night talking lockout, Call of Duty, China and sleeping in. Well done telling all the military members in the audience you sleep in to 9:30. They do more before breakfast than you do all day.

  18. Report: Brook Lopez to join Deron Williams in Turkey

    Nov 24, 2011, 10:28 AM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v Atlanta Hawks

    It looks like Turkish side Besiktas has found its NBA big man — and it turns out to be Deron Williams’ teammate. Brook Lopez is near a deal with the Istanbul-based team to join them for the remainder of the lockout, reports Kartal Basketball )via Sportando). The deal is in place and just needs to…

  19. If season cancelled, Magic would owe Orlando $2.8 million

    Nov 24, 2011, 8:04 AM EDT

    Amway-Center

    Yes, there are some owners willing to miss the season to crush the union. But there also are motivations for other owners to get a deal done. Take the Orlando Magic, for instance. While they would love tools in the new deal to make it more likely they can keep Dwight Howard, they also have…

  20. Wednesday Morning One Liners: Ceballos doing well

    We bring you a Thanksgiving feast of rumors, reports and international news this morning. Cedric Ceballos is recovering well after having a blood clot removed from his coronary artery, reports the Arizona Republic. You can odd Magic Johnson and Paul Pierce to the rosters for the Barack Obama fundraiser game next month, reports the Washington…

  21. Dwight Howard “doubtful” about overseas, talks free agency

    Nov 17, 2011, 6:11 PM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Charlotte Bobcats, Game 3

    When the first rumors came out this week about European powerhouse Real Madrid being interested in Dwight Howard, we were skeptical. Howard had expressed no interest in going to Europe, but would that change with the NBA season looking like it was toast? No, not really. Howard talked to the Orlando Sentinel about a few…

  22. Orlando mayor: NBA has “moral obligation” to bring All-Star Game to city

    Nov 16, 2011, 10:04 AM EDT

    Amway-Center

    All-Star Weekend — from the rookie game to the dunk contest to the parties and, oh yea, the game — is at the top of the list of the things looking like it is toast because the NBA and its players can’t find a rational middle ground. Even if there is a condensed season, the…

  23. Dwight Howard wants Magic to retire Penny’s number

    Nov 14, 2011, 1:26 PM EDT

    Anfernee Hardaway #1

    Should the Orlando Magic retire the number No. 1 jersey of Anfernee “Penny” Hardaway? Here are the stats: Hardaway played six years in Orlando, was a four-time All-Star in that span, helped the Magic reach the NBA finals, was two-time First Team All NBA, and along with Shaquille O’Neal helped put the Magic on the…

  24. Penny Hardaway part of Howard’s Orlando charity game

    Nov 4, 2011, 11:35 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Dwight Howard has some pull. For his Nov. 13 charity game in Orlando Howard has brought in some big names to thrill the crowd — like Penny Hardaway. (That’s big Penny, not ‘lil Penny.) And some to remind them of old wounds — hello Vince Carter and Steve Francis. The Orlando Sentinel has the lineups…

  25. Orlando arena workers turn to non-profit for help during lockout

    Nov 3, 2011, 7:03 PM EDT

    Amway-Center

    You can make the economic case that the money not spent in Orlando on Magic games starting this week will still find it’s way into the economy. No doubt that is right on a macro level. Basketball tickets are discretionary income and if you’re not spending the money on tickets your spending it on movies…
