  1. Report from Europe says Darko Milicic may sign with Boston

    Sep 20, 2012, 8:36 AM EST

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Sacramento Kings

    Darko Milicic a Celtic? Stranger things have happened. Not many, but the fact you know who Snooki is proves anything is possible. We know that Milicic has been looking for an NBA job since being amnestied by the Timberwolves this summer, but is one of the veterans finding the market tight. He had returned to…

  2. Wednesday And-1 links: Who are the NBA’s most traded players?

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Boston Celtics, Game 2

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points like Linsay Lohan likes getting arrested. • Who are the most traded players in…

  3. Joakim Noah worked out with Kareem this summer

    Sep 19, 2012, 6:03 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls - Game One

    Joakim Noah doesn’t have what you would call a traditional low post game. No doubt he has touch around the rim and will out-work you for everything he can. He averaged 10.2 points a game on 50 percent shooting last season. But this year, you might see a little more from him. Which is good…

  5. NBA Season Preview: Philadelphia 76ers

    Sep 17, 2012, 12:21 PM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers introduce Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson

    Today begins PBT’s team-by-team season preview, going through all 30 squads. We are starting in the deep Atlantic Division that could well send four teams to the playoffs, and we will move West from there. First up, your Philadelphia 76ers. Last season: They were a slightly better than .500 team (35-31) that played great defense…

  6. Doc Rivers wants Celtics focused on Heat, not Lakers

    Sep 17, 2012, 11:25 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Atlanta Hawks - Game One

    Lakers vs. Celtics. It’s the NBA’s legendary rivalry. Bill Russell vs. Wilt Chamberlain. Magic vs. Bird. Kevin Garnett vs. Kobe Bryant. It is the balloons in the rafters of the Forum. It is the baby skyhook. It is not what Doc Rivers wants his Celtics focused on. With the Lakers pickups of Dwight Howard and…

  8. Doug Collins isn’t concerned about Bynum’s maturity

    Sep 14, 2012, 1:15 PM EST

    Newly-acquired Philadelphia 76ers player Bynum smiles during a news conference at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia

    The Lakers had concerns about Andrew Bynum’s maturity and ability to be the franchise anchor after Kobe Bryant stepped away. Not huge concerns — if Dwight Howard had not been available Bynum would still be a Laker — but they were there. Sixers coach Doug Collins doesn’t have those concerns. At least that’s what he…

  9. Jrue Holiday, Evan Turner are your Sixer ball handlers now

    Sep 13, 2012, 11:23 AM EST

    Evan Turner

    Last season in Philly, the games started with Jrue Holiday as the point guard and decision maker. Then when Lou Williams came in off the bench gunning he shared those decision-making responsibilities. Now Williams is gone to Atlanta. So who is going to be the guy with the ball in his hands when Holiday is…

  10. Doug Collins says 76ers were “maxed out,” had to evolve

    Sep 12, 2012, 2:03 PM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers introduce Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson

    It’s going to be a very different 76ers team that takes the court this fall — and there is a lot of optimism in Philly that this is a better team. It may be in the short term, but more importantly Philly has positioned itself well to improve in the years going forward with cap…

  11. Thaddeus Young wants to start at three spot for Sixers

    Sep 10, 2012, 10:55 AM EST

    Thaddeus young

    Thaddeus Young should be on your “Sixth Man of the Year” watch list. He averaged 12.8 points and 5 rebounds a game for the Sixers last year and this season he could bring a surge of athleticism and scoring when he enters the game for the Sixers. Except he doesn’t want to be on your…

  12. Winderman: Juwan Howard, other name players could fade away from NBA

    Sep 10, 2012, 10:05 AM EST

    Charlotte Bobcats v Miami Heat

    The fadeaway long has been an NBA fact of life. While the stars hold press conferences to announce enough is enough, their fame to keep them in the spotlight (and possibly part of broadcast teams) long after their playing days — something we soon might get from Ben Wallace — for the majority of those…

  13. Chris Bosh bulking up, a little, for season as Heat center

    Sep 10, 2012, 8:19 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Five

    When the Miami Heat tip off their season opener on Sept. 29 against Boston, don’t be shocked if Chris Bosh starts at the four spot, with Joel Anthony or someone back at the five. But if that game is close at the end, Bosh will be at the five and LeBron James at the four.…

  15. The Inbounds: Rajon Rondo and a game of art not science

    Sep 6, 2012, 12:40 PM EST

    Rajon Rondo

    Over Labor Day, I had an opportunity to share a beach house with both a scientist and an artist. (Don’t get jealous, we were pretty much living off our friends’ generosity, it’s not like I’m skipping off to the Hamptons every other weekend.) A social situation involving people on opposite ends of the conceptual spectrum, particularly in…

  16. Josh Harrellson gets one-week tryout with Heat before camp

    Sep 4, 2012, 9:38 AM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v New York Knicks

    Josh Harrellson is getting his chance. It’s in his hands now. Yesterday we told you about Harrellson tweeting he was headed to Miami where he would hopefully be “for 9 months.” But he doesn’t have a deal with the Heat, he simply is getting an extended look, reports Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel. According…

  17. Dwight Howard says he’ll work with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

    Sep 3, 2012, 10:36 AM EST

    Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Andrew Bynum

    It’s a famous little bit of Lakers lore, how after a few years of working with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Andrew Bynum said he had learned all he needed to from arguably the greatest center to ever play the game and moved on from that relationship. Dwight Howard is willing to jump in. He tweeted this in…

  18. Obama compared Mitt Romney to Jeremy Lin. I don’t get it.

    Sep 3, 2012, 10:10 AM EST

    100316_obama_basketball_ap__regular

    For a guy known for his oratory skills, this Barack Obama shot at Mitt Romney looks like an Andrew Bynum three pointer. Obama is out on the campaign trail this holiday weekend, firing up his supporters before heading to the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte. A city where he might not want to compare his…

  19. Andrew Bynum is selling tickets in Philadelphia

    Aug 31, 2012, 6:01 PM EST

    Newly-acquired Philadelphia 76ers player Bynum greets fans during a news conference at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia

    This season Philly fans aren’t even waiting for the Eagles inevitable collapse to get on the 76ers bandwagon. The Sixers were bold this summer and moved Andre Iguodala to bring in the second best center in the NBA — Andrew Bynum. We have yet to see how that meshes on the court — it should…

  20. Like your 4-year-old, Kevin Durant will not eat his greens

    Aug 31, 2012, 2:35 PM EST

    West Team's Kevin Durant of Oklahoma Cit

    You hear a lot of NBA players talk about a transformation in their diet as they age in the league — they come in being able to eat just about anything and go out and perform. But about their mid- to late-20s, they start to realize they need to take better care of their bodies…

  21. Nets exploring adding Eddy Curry, Josh Childress among others

    Aug 30, 2012, 12:00 PM EST

    Miami Heat's Eddy Curry poses during media day at the team's training camp in Miami

    At this point, you have to wonder if the Nets will be sad when they have no more roster spots to spend money on. Yahoo Sports reports that the Nets are considering several options for their final two available roster spots including… Eddy Curry. The Nets could use Curry. They’re not particularly loaded down low…

  22. A quick look at your top free agents for 2013 (as of now)

    Aug 30, 2012, 10:50 AM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Los Angeles Clippers - Game Four

    After a summer of rebuilding and trying to put a team together, there are a few teams out there that are clearly looking at next summer as the chance to remake their lineup. Yes, we’re looking at you, Dallas. But you are not alone. So, who are next summer’s big potential free agents? Here is…

  23. The Inbounds: How the West will almost-but-not-actually be won

    Aug 29, 2012, 1:52 PM EST

    Zach Randolph, Marc Gasol, Kenyon Martin, Blake Griffin

    Parity has become something of a naughty word around intelligent conversation about the NBA. Because parity is another word for “competitive balance” and that was the word the owners and league used to justify killing off 20 percent of the season last year. (When in truth the hard cap wouldn’t help a damn bit with…

  24. Who will be most drama-filled, soap opera team next season?

    Aug 28, 2012, 2:17 PM EST

    Utah Jazz v New York Knicks

    Where will the soap opera be next NBA season? Certainly the Lakers will be in the spotlight and every twitch will be magnified after the additions of Steve Nash and Dwight Howard. But it’s not the soap opera some expect — this is not going to be a Kobe vs. Shaq part deux. Dwight Howard…

  25. Doug Collins wants Spencer Hawes to be like Pau Gasol

    Aug 28, 2012, 11:17 AM EST

    Spencer Hawes, Brandon Bass

    Before back and Achilles injuries sidelined him, Spencer Hawes was the key to the Sixers offense last season. It wasn’t about the points, it was his passing that got the ball moving side-to-side against the defense and created good looks for others. Without him the offense stagnated some, he was not the same player upon…
