Phoenix Suns

  1. Look for Portland, Brooklyn to make big-money run at Nash

    Jun 4, 2012, 8:47 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Phoenix Suns

    We told you the Chicago Bulls may reach out to Steve Nash and see if the veteran point guard wants to play for them for the league minimum. But if Nash is willing to play for that price to chase a ring he will have his choice of destinations — Miami, New York, Dallas, Los…

  2. The Bulls, Steve Nash, Jason Kidd, and walking the walk vs. talking the talk

    Jun 3, 2012, 5:30 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    See, here’s the problem with the superstar team-up era. The Chicago Bulls have put together a team that features a perennial MVP candidate at 23, an All-Star wing defender who can shoot, a hyper-active emotional powderkeg with some offensive skills built in at seven-feet, a deep bench, some microwave scorers… and Carlos Boozer. (No one’s…

  3. Report: Suns have interest in Alonzo Gee

    Jun 3, 2012, 12:30 PM EDT

    Manny Harris, Samardo Samuels, Jamario Moon, Alonzo Gee, Ramon Sessions

    Alonzo Gee is what you might call a value free-agent this summer. The Cavs forward has athleticism, youth on his side, a versatile skill-set, and strong upside. But he hasn’t played well enough or under a big enough microscope to carry with him serious buzz. So teams are going to get their shot at making…

  4. Report: Suns to pursue Deron Williams. What, is Magic Johnson unavailable?

    Jun 2, 2012, 9:00 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v New Jersey Nets

    The New York Daily News reports that if Steve Nash leaves the Suns in free agency, the Suns will make a bid for Deron Williams. “If they lose Steve, then they plan to go after Deron, hard,” said a person with knowledge of the Suns’ plans. “They know he loves golf and they’re going to…

  5. Suns coach Gentry “feels good” about Suns keeping Nash

    May 31, 2012, 12:02 PM EDT

    Steve Nash

    Steve Nash’s free agency is going to be interesting. Nobody would really begrudge him if he went and chased a ring, but if he’s going to do that in the most logical place, Miami, he’ll be doing it for the veteran minimum. He could go to the Knicks, Lakers, pretty much wherever he wants if…

  6. What would it mean for teams to win NBA Draft Lottery

    May 29, 2012, 7:59 PM EDT

    Final Four - Louisville v Kentucky

    Fates will be decided by some bouncing balls and random numbers Wednesday. Not just the fate of lock No. 1 overall pick Anthony Davis (and guys like Andre Drummond, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Thomas Robinson and many more). It’s the fate of franchises (and general managers) that will be decided. What would it mean to the 14…

  7. Josh Childress sets dubious free throw record

    May 27, 2012, 3:42 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors vs Phoenix Suns

    Josh Childress, the former Hawk sixth man who bolted for Greece and was coaxed back to the NBA by Phoenix, wasn’t impressive this season and fell out of the rotation with the Suns (at least until Grant Hill got injured). But that didn’t stop him from setting a dubious record this season, something pointed out…

  8. GM Grunwald sees “no scenario” where Lin is not a Knick

    May 25, 2012, 11:35 PM EDT

    New York Knicks' Lin pumps his fist from the bench as teammates score during their NBA basketball game in Toronto

    Jeremy Lin is a priority for the Knicks. They would like to sign him using his Bird rights, meaning they still would have their mid-level exception to use on another player (say… Steve Nash?). But under the way the new CBA is actually written they don’t have Lin’s Bird rights (because they got him off…

  9. Kevin Durant, LeBron James head All-NBA Teams

    May 24, 2012, 2:39 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat

    Here’s the problem with nitpicking the All-NBA teams — there are no bad players on any of the first three. You can argue if you want (and as I would) that LaMarcus Aldridge deserves a spot on the third team more than Carmelo Anthony or Dirk Nowitzki, but that doesn’t make the guys on the…

  10. Does Steve Nash have any interest in playing for the Knicks?

    May 24, 2012, 1:37 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Phoenix Suns

    In New York, it has just kind of assumed that Steve Nash wants to come there. Because New Yorkers assume everyone wants to come there, play there — that everyone wishes they were New Yorkers. Not the case. And it may not be the case with Steve Nash. In a twitter discussion yesterday, Jared Zwerling…

  11. Report: Lamar Odom wants to play for Knicks

    May 24, 2012, 1:38 AM EDT

    Tribeca/ESPN Sports Film Festival  Gala: Benji - 2012 Tribeca Film Festival

    Right now, Lamar Odom is the Dallas Mavericks draft day trade bait — they are going to be shopping him and his $8.2 million contract around. And there will be interest because Odom can be bought out by June 30 for $2.4 million — that’s a big savings. If nobody else buys him out, Dallas…

  12. LeBron, Ibaka lead NBA All-Defensive team voting

    May 23, 2012, 2:24 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks

    Few things can be counted on for a consistent laugh like the NBA All-Defensive team voting. It is always a laugh. This year it didn’t disappoint — somebody voted for Carlos Boozer. Yes, that Carlos Boozer. For his defense. But no complaint about the top vote getter, LeBron James. He was a defensive force this…

  13. Point guards Irving, Rubio lead NBA All-Rookie team

    May 22, 2012, 3:56 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers rookie Kyrie Irving reacts after a turnover during the second quarter of the Cavaliers NBA basketball game against the Miami Heat in Cleveland

    The NBA is evolving into more of a point-guard league — if you can’t touch a quick ball handler on the perimeter they are going to carve up any defense. With the rules enforced as they are, Tony Parker can’t guard Tony Parker. So no shock that the two guys on top of the NBA…

  14. Monday And-1 links: Would you play for Coach Brian Scalabrine?

    Here is our daily 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. • Coach Brian Scalabrine? Why not? • There are reports that Knicks guard J.R.…

  15. Jeremy Lin’s agent doesn’t know if guard will return to Knicks

    May 21, 2012, 1:52 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v New York Knicks

    The conventional wisdom is that the Knicks will not let Jeremy Lin go this summer. The point guard is a restricted free agent who can get up to $5 million in his next deal and he will — partially for his on-the-court skills as a guard but also because he is a marketing gold mine…

  16. Boris Diaw: From fat guy Bobcats shipped out to quality Spurs cog

    May 20, 2012, 10:09 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v San Antonio Spurs - Game Two

    Sometimes in the NBA players just need a change. Boris Diaw needs one about once a year, apparently. In Charlotte Diaw was fat and too comfortable. Literally fat. He came back from the lockout probably 50 pounds heavier than last season and that combined with a mercurial personality and sharply declining performance was more than…

  17. Thursday And-1 links: Kobe, LeBron are powerful people

  19. “Bird rights” arbitration could impact Knicks with Lin, Nash, everyone

    May 15, 2012, 1:01 PM EDT

    Injured New York Knicks guard Jeremy Lin reacts during pregame ceremonies before the Knicks play against the Miami Heat in Game 2 of their first round NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoffs in Miami

    The Knicks — if they want to have any hope of adding Steve Nash or any other significant free agent this summer — have a lot invested in what an arbitrator says about “Bird rights” in the new Collective Bargaining Agreement. Because that new CBA ties GM Glen Grunwald’s hands behind his back. It’s a…

  20. New documentary includes look at game Dream Team lost

    May 14, 2012, 9:11 AM EDT

    1992-dreamteam

    We remember the original Dream Team — the pros sent to the 1992 Barcelona Olympics including Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Charles Barkley and others — just rolling teams. The won the Olympic gold medal by an average of nearly 20 points a game and had the opposing teams asking for autographs afterward. But…

  21. Report: Raptors to aim for Nash, and if not… Lin?

    May 13, 2012, 9:00 AM EDT

    Injured New York Knicks guard Jeremy Lin reacts during pregame ceremonies before the Knicks play against the Miami Heat in Game 2 of their first round NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoffs in Miami

    The Raptors are constantly going to be linked to Steve Nash because of Bryan Colangelo’s link to Nash’s Suns which Colangelo was GM for. So naturally, with the Raptors improving, having cap space, and Nash poised to hit the open market, there’s talk of him heading to his native country to finish his career. But…

  22. PBT Extra: Talking Knicks’ future, Jordan or Kobe, and sushi

    May 10, 2012, 8:38 PM EDT

    Knicks' Anthony celebrates after a three point shot late in the fourth quarter of the Knicks' win in Game 4 of their NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoff series against the Heat in New York

    When I opened up the doors looking for twitter questions for today’s PBT Extra, I knew that the Knicks were going to be the hot topic. So I discuss how I expect them to go after Steve Nash (which is iffy, both for fit and money issues) but not make many other big changes. We…

  23. Stoudemire wants Nash to join him in New York. Shocking.

    May 10, 2012, 10:58 AM EDT

    Steve Nash Amare Stoudemire

    Amare Stoudemire had 7 shots in Game 5 against the Heat Thursday when the Knicks were eliminated from the playoffs. Carmelo Anthony had 31. Heck, Mike Bibby had 7 shots. So is it really a surprise that Stoudemire loves the idea of Steve Nash coming to play for the Knicks? Stoudemire has his best seasons…

  24. Don’t look for Knicks to make many offseason moves, just big one

    May 10, 2012, 9:09 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks - Game Four

    Before the first jump ball tipped off the season on Christmas, this was the season everyone thought the Knicks would take a step forward. Maybe only to the second round of the playoffs, but they were going to be good. At least the third best team in the East. Instead, they had to fight their…

  25. Knicks return to iso ‘Melo, get knocked out of playoffs by Heat

    May 9, 2012, 10:51 PM EDT

    New York Knicks' Anthony is guarded by Miami Heat's James during the fourth quarter in Game 5 of their NBA Eastern Conference first round basketball playoff series in Miami

    This year was supposed to be different for New York, and it certainly was unlike any season you can remember — Linsanity, injuries, Mike D’Antoni out and Mike Woodson in, a return to ‘Melo ball not seen since Denver. But it ended like every Knicks playoff series since 2000 — without the team advancing past…
