  1. Report: Knicks will target Steve Nash next summer

    Jan 18, 2012, 12:13 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Phoenix Suns

    The Knicks need a point guard. I know it, you know it, anyone who has watched 20 seconds of a Knicks game knows it. Their front office knows it, too. Getting a quality one this season via trade is unlikely (hence the hope that Baron Davis can be the man), so they are looking at…

  2. Blazers will have to choose between Batum, Wallace

    Jan 12, 2012, 8:53 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki, Nicolas Batum, Gerald Wallace

    From Kerry Eggers of the Portland Tribune: The Blazers have until Jan. 25 to extend the rookie contract of Batum, 23, who is making a pro-rated $2.16 million this season and would be due a qualifying offer of $3.17 million as a restricted free agent next season. If the deadline passes without a deal, the…

  3. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Nate Robinson beats the Heat

    Jan 11, 2012, 7:40 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Golden State Warriors

    What you missed while being addicted to cracking your knuckles… Wizards 93, Raptors 78: The Wizards win! Theeee Wizards win! Warriors 111, Heat 106: This was another Miami route, they were up 17 late in the third quarter, but then Nate Robinson happened. And then Dorell Wright happened. And suddenly Mark Jackson and the rebuilding…

  4. Monday And-1 links: More LeBron hairline jokes

    Jan 2, 2012, 11:14 AM EDT

    LeBron James Hairline Getty

    Welcome to our morning 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). Happy birthday LeBron, you’re bald. Michael Beasley’s finger injury Sunday seemed pretty bad — especially the part on television where you could see him say…

  5. Baseline to baseline recaps: Kevin Durant is an assassin

    Dec 30, 2011, 8:46 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City Thunder

    What you missed while watching an octopus pick the BCS matchups…. Lakers 99, Knicks 82: We broke this down as our game of the night. Thunder 104, Mavericks 102: This was easily the best game the Mavericks have played this season. The ball movement was back, the clever veteran plays were there. Delonte West said…

  6. NBA Season Preview: Denver Nuggets

    Dec 15, 2011, 5:45 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Boston Celtics

    2010-11 record: 50-32 Head Coach: George Karl Key Departures: Raymond Felton, Gary Forbes, and the three guys on an extended Chinese vacation — J.R. Smith, Wilson Chandler, Kenyon Martin Key Additions: Rudy Fernandez, Andre Miller, Kenneth Faried. They also kept Nene, which seemed unlikely at points but makes this team much, much better. Best-Case Scenario:…

  7. Jamal Crawford going home, to sign with Portland

    Dec 15, 2011, 2:49 PM EDT

    Jamal Crawford

    The Portland Trail Blazers always had an advantage in trying to land Jamal Crawford — and not just LaMarcus Aldridge’s naked and unabashed recruitment of him on twitter. Crawford was born in Seattle and lives in the Pacific Northwest in the offseason. The Blazers were close to home. And he is headed back, according to…

  8. NBA Season Preview: Portland Trail Blazers

    Dec 15, 2011, 8:30 AM EDT

    Paul Millsap, Gerald Wallace, Wesley Matthews

    2010-11 record: 48-34 Head Coach: Nate McMillan Key Departures: Brandon Roy, Greg Oden (out for season), Rudy Fernandez, Andre Miller Key Additions: Nolan Smith, Raymond Felton Best-Case Scenario: The Blazers somehow find a way to once again overcome a slew of injuries and use their depth to be a mid-level playoff team in the Western…

  9. NBA Season Preview: New York Knicks

    Dec 15, 2011, 6:30 AM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire, Carmelo Anthony

    Last season: 42-40 — good enough for a middling playoff seed and a first round sweep at the hands of the Boston Celtics. Head Coach: Mike D’Antoni, who has an intriguing roster but will have to step out of his comfort zone. As a playmaker, Toney Douglas isn’t Steve Nash…or Raymond Felton…or Chauncey Billups. As…

  10. 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.…

  11. 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…

    Sep 16, 2011, 12:19 PM EDT

    Nuggets guard Smith celebrates a three-point shot in their NBA basketball game against the Timberwolves in Denver

  13. Felton “willing to sign a long-term deal” in Portland

    Jun 28, 2011, 6:43 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    One of the big trades on draft day involved the Portland Trail Blazers acquiring 27-year old point guard Raymond Felton, who had what was perhaps the best season of his career last season while playing for both the Knicks and the Nuggets after he was sent to Denver in the Carmelo Anthony trade. With veteran…

  14. Reports: Blazers trade Andre Miller to Nuggets for Raymond Felton

    Jun 23, 2011, 10:42 PM EDT

    andre-miller-trade

    As the draft day deals continue, here’s one that would appear to benefit both teams. The Denver Nuggets and Portland Trail Blazers have agreed to swap point guards, with Raymond Felton going to Portland and Andre Miller heading to Denver in return, according to multiple reports.The teams also swapped first round picks, the No. 21…

  15. Ford: Kings may trade #7 pick for Felton

    Jun 21, 2011, 6:47 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    More draft rumors! This one comes courtesy of ESPN.com’s Chad Ford: The phones have been ringing off the hook today with just 48 hours to go before the NBA draft. Here are some more quick hitters on what I’m hearing. • Would the Kings be willing to send the No. 7 pick to the Nuggets…

  16. NBA Playoffs: OKC takes Game 2 as Denver’s depth disappears

    Apr 21, 2011, 2:14 AM EDT

    Al Harrington, J.R. Smith, Nene

    Game 1 of the series between the Denver Nuggets and Oklahoma City Thunder stood out as a highly entertaining contest in an opening weekend full of highly entertaining contests, but the reprise in Game 2 couldn’t quite measure up as a competitive spectacle. Blame the Thunder; OKC used a dominant first quarter as a catalyst…

  17. NBA Playoffs: Thunder barely outgun Nuggets

    Apr 18, 2011, 4:01 AM EDT

    nuggetsthunder1

    In a weekend full of high intensity, close games full of excitement, it was only fitting that the Oklahoma City Thunder and Denver Nuggets provided one last fireworks show. The game was the equivalent of some sort of bizarre video game. You have expected a mythical creature to burst through the floor and battle the…

  18. PBT Thursday morning one liners

    Mar 31, 2011, 10:45 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    Fascinating stat (prior to Wednesday night): Ty Lawson and Raymond Felton as a Nuggets backcourt had outscored their opponents 463 to 365 (via ESPN’s Tom Haberstroh). But two point guards won’t work. Cleveland got its signature win over Miami. Don’t think that changes anything. J.J. Barea is dating a former Ms. Universe. She’s basically as…

  19. Raymond Felton might push way out of Denver this summer

    Mar 22, 2011, 11:44 PM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Denver Nuggets

    In New York, Raymond Felton was the man. Well, Amar’e Stoudemire was THE MAN, but Raymond Felton was the deputy. He was the point guard who was making Mike D’Antoni’s system work. In Denver, Felton is coming off the bench. Ty Lawson is the future, Felton is the other guy. Winning doesn’t really cure all…

  20. Arron Afflalo expected to miss rest of week in Denver

    Mar 21, 2011, 4:14 PM EDT

    Arron Afflalo, Francisco Elson

    Denver’s offense did not look right with Arron Afflalo and Raymond Felton — the team’s starting backcourt — out this weekend. Of course, playing good defensive teams in Miami and Orlando probably had a little to do with that, too. Afflalo will be out the rest of the week recovering from a hamstring tweak, George…

  21. Nuggets Raymond Felton: “We’re a better team (than the Knicks)”

    Mar 14, 2011, 1:36 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Denver Nuggets

    The Denver Nuggets have gone from being the team that concerned first-round playoff opponents because they had shot makers in Carmelo Anthony and Chauncey Billups to a team that concerns first-round playoff opponents because they play good defense. These Nuggets are a lot different than the old Nuggets (and by old we mean a month…

  22. What now for the Nuggets? Playoff push or fast trades?

    Feb 23, 2011, 9:33 AM EDT

    Raymond Felton, Wilson Chandler, Danilo Gallinari, Timofey Mozgov

    Congratulations Denver. Sure, having your star player and face of the franchise force his way out of town doesn’t feel like something to be congratulated over, but there is the silver lining you keep hearing about — at least you’re not Cleveland. That’s got to make you feel better, right? You got something in return…

  23. Nuggets plan to keep Felton

    Feb 22, 2011, 1:25 PM EDT

    image

    Carmelo Anthony’s move to the Big Apple may be taking up all the headline real estate, but Raymond Felton’s departure is also quite notable. He was neither a star nor a New York establishment, but like former-Knicks, now-Nuggets Danilo Gallinari and Wilson Chandler, Felton is a quality player and a legitimate starter. However, the Anthony…

  24. Carmelo Anthony is gone, who else is Denver likely to move

    Feb 22, 2011, 9:35 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    Carmelo Anthony was just the first domino in Denver. His trade will be followed by host of moves in the next 48 hours — then again next summer — as virtually the entire roster gets overhauled. Denver has from a team that thought it had a chance to push the Lakers to one that is…

  25. Knicks not contenders with ‘Melo, but they have hope

    Feb 22, 2011, 2:29 AM EDT

    FIBA Semifinals: USA v Puerto Rico

    Remember Red, hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies. —Shawshank Redemption Today the New York Knicks are not title contenders. They got their man — Carmelo Anthony has been acquired to go with Amar’e Stoudemire. But they are still a long way away from the goal.…
