  1. 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…

  2. Report: Trail Blazers to “pause” search for general manager

    Nov 16, 2011, 6:58 PM EDT

    Eventually, the Portland Trail Blazers will need a general manager to tell Paul Allen everything is great figure out how to rebuild this team and win fast. But with the lockout dragging on, that time is not now. The Blazers have already reset their search to replace Rich Cho once and now the search will…

  3. Blazers owner will enjoy prime spot for his “megayacht” at Olympics

    Nov 15, 2011, 4:30 PM EDT

    1217_nba-paul-allen-trail-blazers

    File this under the “any time I think the players can wait out the owners slap me”… Lockout hardliner and Trail Blazers owner — not to mention Microsoft co-founder — Paul Allen is going to enjoy the Olympics in London next summer like the rest of us. Heck, it might well be the next time…

  4. Jamal Crawford wouldn’t mind playing in Portland

    Nov 7, 2011, 11:45 PM EDT

    Jamal Crawford

    Around the league, players love Jamal Crawford. He is a popular guy in league locker rooms. And he’s a guy who can come off the bench and light it up — he’s not going to be efficient doing that, and he’ll get lost on defense every other time down, but he’ll put up points. That’s…

  5. Greg Oden can now run

    Oct 27, 2011, 6:54 PM EDT

    ODEN_GREG

    From Oden’s Facebook page (via Blazer’s Edge): In LA right now working out. I ran the other day for the first time in awhile. Felt good! The 2007 #1 pick’s NBA career has been decimated by a series of brutal knee injuries, and he underwent the 2nd microfracture surgery of his career 11 months ago.…

  6. Aldridge wants to bring NBA charity game circuit to Portland

    Oct 25, 2011, 3:25 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Dallas Mavericks

    Don’t worry Portland, just because we don’t like your owner doesn’t mean we don’t like you. So the NBA player charity game tour may swing through the Pacific Northwest as well. LaMarcus Aldridge is working to set up a game in Portland, the Oregonian reports. The Trail Blazers forward announced on Twitter that he will…

  7. Report: Good news, the league and players agree on some things! Only, like, three, but still!

    Oct 22, 2011, 2:00 PM EDT

    billy-hunter-david-stern

    One of the things that Adam Silver and Peter Holt said at their press conference Thursday, in-between explaining their completely ridiculous obstinacy regarding the 50/50 split and looking like someone stole their 1992 Alonzo Mourning rookie card (I will never forgive that kid), is that federal mediator George Cohen starts his sessions by getting both sides to…

  8. Some owners thinking sale price, not hoops, as lockout drags on

    Oct 21, 2011, 5:51 PM EDT

    1217_nba-paul-allen-trail-blazers

    I didn’t think there was much that could make me more depressed about the prospects of the NBA season. Then I read Adrian Wojnarowski well-researched post at Yahoo, ripping apart Blazers owner Paul Allen, his interest (or lack thereof) in the team and his motivations for being the heavy during Thursday’s labor negotiating session, when…

  9. Mychal Thompson says the players need to take 50/50 deal

    Oct 20, 2011, 11:02 AM EDT

    Mychal Thompson

    For a number of former NBA players, they don’t really get this lockout. Oh, they understand the mechanics of it; they just don’t get exactly what the players are fighting for and why. To them, the players are doing well and 50/50 sounds fair. They sound like many fans. Mychal Thompson, former No. 1 overall…

  10. Report: Raptors’ talks with Stefanski ‘stalled’ as Sixers GM looks to Blazers

    Oct 15, 2011, 11:30 AM EDT

    Allen Iverson Press Conference

    Remember how Ed Stefanski was going to be the next Raptors GM, essentially working under Bryan Colangelo in what would largely be an assistant role since Colangelo is the guy who runs the show? And how it was a done deal and all that? Yeah, not so much. Yahoo! Sports reports that the deal has…

  11. Portland tasked with fixing what isn’t broken

    Oct 13, 2011, 2:17 PM EDT

    LaMarcus Aldridge, Brandon Roy, Nicolas Batum, Rudy Fernandez, Gerald Wallace

    Things are going just fine for the Portland Trail Blazers these days: LaMarcus Aldridge made “the leap,” last season, Rich Cho stole Gerald Wallace out of Charlotte with a bargain trade package, Andre Miller was replaced with a younger facsimile, Brandon Roy has shown signs of life, and the roster is loaded with capable contributors.…

  12. Report: Trail Blazers to restart GM search from square one

    Oct 7, 2011, 9:09 AM EDT

    Image (1) blazers_logo-thumb-250x275-12376.png for post 2181

    At some point, the Portland Trail Blazers are going to need a general manager. And if that time is sooner rather than later, well, they are in trouble. More than four months after the Trail Blazers started their search for a new general manager after firing Rich Cho, after interviews with at least four candidates,…

  13. Marcus Camby cleared of marijuana possession charges

    Oct 5, 2011, 6:23 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    We told you a couple weeks ago how Portland big man Marcus Camby had been pulled over, found with a small amount of marijuana and charged with possession in Texas. And we all pulled out some old “Jail Blazers” jokes and dusted them off. Now Camby has been cleared of all charges, reports the Oregonian.…

  14. Hall of Famer Arvydas Sabonis stable after heart attack

    Sep 27, 2011, 5:13 PM EDT

    Sabonis Hall of Fame

    Freshly minted basketball Hall of Fame inductee Arvydas Sabonis suffered a heart attack but is now in stable condition, according to multiple reports out of his native Lithuania. Trail Blazers blog Blazers Edge was on top of the reports. Lithuanian news site Delfi.lt reports that former Portland Trail Blazers center Arvydas Sabonis suffered a heart attack while playing basketball…

  15. Marcus Camby arrested with small amount of marijuana

    Sep 22, 2011, 2:43 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    If you want, turn the comments into a debate about whether or not this should even be illegal. It’s a valid debate (and I’d fall on the side of saying it shouldn’t be, except the part where he is operating a car), but it’s moot here. The fact is it is illegal right now. Trail…

  16. Blazers searching Cho’s replacement as GM

    Sep 20, 2011, 7:10 PM EDT

    Rich Cho

    From CBS’ Ben Golliver: PORTLAND, Ore. — More than 100 days after “parting ways” with former GM Rich Cho weeks before the 2011 NBA Draft, the PortlandTrail Blazers have yet to hire Cho’s full-time replacement. Blazers president Larry Miller did finally confirm that the GM search process has progressed in a telephone interview with CBSSports.com on…

  17. What the Blazers should do if the lockout ends

    Sep 20, 2011, 6:14 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Dallas Mavericks - Game One

    The Blazers had an interesting year last season. Brandon Roy‘s injuries made him a shell of his former self, and 2007 #1 pick had yet another devastating knee injury that caused him to miss a full season. However, the team got a breakout year from LaMarcus Aldridge, Wesley Matthews backed up his contract, and a…

  18. Mavericks’ Rudy Fernandez signs deal with Real Madrid

    Sep 20, 2011, 10:56 AM EDT

    Spain's Rudy Fernandez drinks chapmpagne

    This should not come as a surprise to anybody. After Rudy Fernandez spent all of last summer trying to get Portland to release him so he could return to the Spanish League, he has used the lockout to return to the Spanish League. Probably should have seen that one coming. What we told you was…

  19. Report: Adelman near deal to become Timberwolves coach

    Sep 10, 2011, 3:27 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Boston Celtics

    If this happens, David Kahn will have won the summer. After having a second interview and some discussions about money, it appears that Rick Adelman is near a deal to take over as the head coach of the Minnesota Timberwolves, reports Bill Ingram at HoopsWorld. Sources close to the situation told HOOPSWORLD that Adelman is…

  20. Lockout takes its toll: Paul Allen sells his private island

    Sep 10, 2011, 2:00 PM EDT

    Paul Allen

    It’s pretty clear we need a massive overhaul of the players’ salaries to save the NBA owners some dough. I mean, look no further than this. Blazers owner Paul Allen is selling his private island. From Yahoo!: Paul Allen, the Microsoft co-founder that ranks 57th on the Forbes World’s Billionaires list with $13 billion, is…

  21. Report: Couple more names pop up on Blazers GM list

    Sep 9, 2011, 8:50 AM EDT

    Image (1) blazers_logo-thumb-250x275-12376.png for post 2181

    The Trail Blazers are looking at the men making basketball decisions for the Cavaliers and Clippers for their front office. Don’t laugh — if the criteria for the job is getting along with a pain-in-the-butt owner who injects himself into basketball decisions at bad times, front office people coming out of Cavalier and Clipper organizations…

  22. Blazers to interview Spurs’ Lindsay, Mullin for GM gig

    Sep 3, 2011, 7:00 PM EDT

  23. Blazers to interview Thunder’s Weaver for GM position

    Sep 3, 2011, 8:30 AM EDT

    Paul Allen

Sports.More From Adrian WojnarowskiSpurs Blair to play in Russia during lockout Sep…

  24. These are the people really screwed by the lockout

    Sep 1, 2011, 1:03 PM EDT

    lockout

    The average NBA player is going to have to get by for a while on the $2.3 million he earned last year (that is the median NBA salary). The owners are going to have to get by on their billions. Both sides can afford for this lockout to drag out a while. They’re not the…

  25. LaMarcus Aldridge willing to lose season to get “fair deal”

    Aug 24, 2011, 10:15 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Dallas Mavericks

    As we’ve talked about before, we’ve heard from some owners that are willing to scrap the entire 2011-12 season to get a deal that works for them. Remember, six NBA owners also own NHL teams, guys who know that path. Now we’ve got a player saying the same thing. Great. Just great. LaMarcus Aldridge was…
