    San Antonio Spurs v Portland Trail Blazers

    With the Miami Heat next up on the schedule, the New York Knicks are looking to bring in some guys who can defend on the perimeter. As opposed to what they have now which is essentially orange traffic cones to dribble around on your way to the lane. Enter Earl Clark (who we told you…

    Toronto Raptors v Cleveland Cavaliers

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while wishing you had watched the Winter Olympics in a snow fort…  DeMar DeRozan, Toronto Raptors. He is the guy the Raptors go to in the fourth and what’s different than the Rudy Gay era is how he gets his points — it’s not isolations.…

  5. Report: If Granger bought out Spurs have interest, maybe not Heat

    Feb 25, 2014, 7:10 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks

    We are still waiting to see if the Philadelphia 76ers and Danny Granger are going to be able to come to a buyout agreement. While talks are ongoing, a few teams are circling like vultures just in case Granger is going to be a free agent. The timeline is March 1 — if the Sixers…

    The New York Knicks are looking for defensive help. As they should be if you’ve watched any of their games recently. Which is why they are close to bringing in free agent Earl Clark.

    Feb 25, 2014, 2:11 AM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks  v Philadelphia 76ers

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while mourning the loss of Harold Ramis (RIP)….. Philadelphia 76ers on the court. My. Lord. They. Are. Terrible. The Sixers have lost 11 in a row after getting just routed by the Milwaukee Bucks 130-110. That would be the 11-win Milwaukee Bucks, which shot 57.1…

  9. Danny Granger not suiting up for Sixers Monday, buyout decision likely in 24 hours

    Feb 24, 2014, 6:47 PM EDT

    Toronto Raptors vs Indiana Pacers

    Philadelphia didn’t trade for the Pacers’ Danny Granger to make them better this season. That’s the opposite of the plan. Philly got some picks for Evan Turner that they wanted and Granger is just another asset — he could be used in a sign and trade this summer to bring in players they actually want.…

  10. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Heat on the top, Sixers fall to very bottom

    Feb 24, 2014, 2:49 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors vs Miami Heat

    We have a new team at the top and the bottom of PBT’s weekly NBA Power Rankings. Miami’s defense is back and propelled them to a couple wins that have them back on top of the chart. It has taken some sustained losing — a real effort — on the part of a Sixers team…

  11. Sixers’ Thaddeus Young admits to feeling left out of the trade deadline action

    Feb 22, 2014, 7:30 PM EDT

    Thaddeus Young

    Since the beginning of the season, it’s been widely known around the league that the Sixers’ veteran trio of Spencer Hawes, Evan Turner, and Thaddeus Young were all available in trade as the team began its rebuilding process. Turner was involved in the biggest deal of the day, getting sent to a Pacers team with…

  12. Sixers waive Earl Clark, he’ll become a free agent

    Feb 21, 2014, 2:46 PM EDT

    Earl Clark, Miroslav Raduljica

    This was expected and it didn’t take long. The Philadelphia 76ers picked up Earl Clark from Cleveland as part of the Spencer Hawes trade. With all the players Philly picked up in a flurry of moves at the deadline they had 16 players on the roster, one more than the league maximum. Someone had to…

  14. The Extra Pass: What’s behind the slow trade deadline

    Feb 21, 2014, 8:06 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Boston Celtics

    That makes two years in a row. There was more activity at the 2014 NBA trade deadline than in 2013 (25 players got moved this year), but once again the deadline was about shifting around bench players and cap space, there were no difference makers moved. Of the 25 players who changed teams at this…

  15. Trade Deadline Winners/Losers: It’s a good day to be a Pacers fan

    Feb 20, 2014, 9:24 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Boston Celtics

    It was the day of the role player. There was a fair amount of action at the NBA’s trade deadline but none of it involved the big names that floated around a little — no Rajon Rondo or Pau Gasol, and Kevin Love was never in play. Still, some teams made smart moves, and some…

  16. Pacers trade Danny Granger to Sixers for Evan Turner

    Feb 20, 2014, 4:12 PM EDT

    Britain NBA Preseason Basketball

    It was a lackluster NBA trade deadline by any reasonable standard, and once 3 p.m. Eastern had come and gone, there was nothing of note that went down that would improve any of the contending teams significantly. It wasn’t until more than 30 minutes after the deadline had passed that we found out about the…

  17. NBA Trade Deadline Tracker: All the trades, rumors, analysis, fun in one place

    Feb 20, 2014, 3:00 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Brooklyn Nets

    It’s the one day on the NBA calendar you know is going to be like a roller coaster — rumors are going to fly, deals are going to appear close then fall apart, complete fabrications will fascinate a fan base who will then blame a GM for not making them reality, and in the end…

  18. Timberwolves reportedly turn eye toward Jarrett Jack

    Feb 20, 2014, 1:58 PM EDT

    Jarrett Jack, Jameer Nelson

    The Minnesota Timberwolves wanted Andre Miller, but he’s headed to Washington. The Timberwolves still need a better backup point guard to make a playoff push – they’re outscored by 4.7 points per 100 possessions when Ricky Rubio sits (+5.8 when he plays) – so they’ve turned their attention elsewhere. Hearing that the Timberwolves, falling short…

  19. Report: Sixers lower asking price for Evan Turner

    Feb 20, 2014, 10:41 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Boston Celtics

    The Sixers have been willing to trade any of their three core players all season long, but to make a deal for either Evan Turner, Spencer Hawes or Thaddeus Young, Philadelphia GM Sam Hinkie has been holding out for a first round pick in return. As the deadline approaches and teams get more desperate, things…

  20. Dion Waiters leaves with injury after throwing down monster dunk against Sixers (VIDEO)

    Feb 19, 2014, 9:31 AM EDT

    dion waiters

    Dion Waiters is known for being a bit of a chucker if you’re the glass-half-empty type, or perhaps as a deadly outside shooting threat if you’re feeling more positive. On this play from Tuesday night’s win over the Sixers, however, he showed that he has the athleticism to attack the rim with the best of…

  21. The Extra Pass: Five teams to watch closely as the trade deadline nears

    Feb 19, 2014, 7:59 AM EDT

    Kenneth Faried

    With just more than 48 hours left until the NBA’s trade deadline, it feels like the biggest deals may be behind us — Rudy Gay and Luol Deng have already been moved. Rumors are swirling, but the feeling around the league is it is all a lot of sound and fury signifying nothing. Still there…

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

    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.

    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…

  24. NBA All-Star Weekend: Waiters, Hardaway light up Rising Stars Challenge with 3-point shootout

    Feb 15, 2014, 12:11 AM EDT

    dion waiters

    NEW ORLEANS — To be perfectly honest, there are times when the Rising Stars Challenge can feel like a bit of a chore. It can’t match the talent level of the actual All-Star game, but it has all of the lack of defense, intensity, and ball movement that is usually par for the course in…

  25. Spencer Hawes has Barack Obama toilet paper that Evan Turner won’t use

    Feb 14, 2014, 3:40 PM EDT

    Spencer Hawes, Evan Turner, Josh Smith

    At one point, the official Barack Obama store was selling Obama koozies, Obama aprons, Obama handbags, Obama baby bibs, Obama golf balls, Obama tube socks, Obama dog shirts, Obama spatulas and Obama divot tools. However, I don’t think the site ever had Obama toilet paper. But thanks to teammate Evan Turner, we know 76ers center…
