  7. Report: Houston Rockets to pursue Carmelo Anthony this summer

    Mar 14, 2014, 9:30 AM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    At a panel during the Sloan Conference, Golden State Warriors general manager Bob Myers described the arduous process of acquiring Andre Iguodala. The Warriors had no cap room last summer, so Myers faced a two-sided task to land the free agent. Not only did he negotiate with Iguodala, Myers discussed trades with other teams to…

  8. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Thunder stay on top, Bucks stay on bottom

    Feb 10, 2014, 3:24 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    More and more I think Adam Silver’s first NBA Finals as commissioner will feature Indiana and Oklahoma City — which would be good basketball but not exactly Super Bowl ratings. Things can change, but those are the two best teams right now.   1 Thunder (41-12, Last Week No. 1). We gave been praising Kevin…

  9. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Golden State climbing rankings fast

    Jan 6, 2014, 2:29 PM EST

    Golden State Warriors v Phoenix Suns

    The top two teams in the East are the top two teams on PBT’s Power Rankings, but with their current nine-game win streak Golden State has moved in as the top ranked team in the West. If they keep defending like this they are legitimate contenders come playoff time.   1. Pacers (27-6, Last Week…

  10. Gasol-Bynum trade talks update: Talks reportedly on hold as Lakers, Cavaliers can’t make deal work

    Jan 6, 2014, 12:10 AM EST

    Bynum Cavaliers

    Don’t be shocked if word comes down Monday at that Andrew Bynum is on his way to the Utah Jazz. Or maybe the Cavaliers just decide to hold on to Bynum for a day then waive him themselves on Tuesday. That’s because the much-discussed Bynum to the Los Angeles Lakers for Pau Gasol talks have…

  11. Report: Utah’s Richard Jefferson possible trade piece for Andrew Bynum

    Jan 4, 2014, 12:30 PM EST

    Utah Jazz v Charlotte Bobcats

    At some time Monday the Cleveland Cavaliers are going to make a move, trading Andrew Bynum to a team that will turn around and waive him in the next 24-hours, saving themselves $6 million. The only question is who is coming back to Cleveland. The answer may be veteran swingman Richard Jefferson of the Utah…

  12. Amazing shot: Hawks’ Pero Antic one-legged three to force OT vs. Bobcats

    Dec 29, 2013, 12:28 AM EST

    Atlanta Hawks v Cleveland Cavaliers

    If you’re the Atlanta Hawks and you need a three, you design a play for Kyle Korver. Which they did. Thing is, the Charlotte Bobcats are a solid defensive team and up three with 11.8 seconds left when they saw Korver get the ball they triple-teamed him. Korver dished to Pero Antic in the corner…

  13. Richard Jefferson stands by comment that he’ll go ‘championship hunting’ as a free agent

    Dec 21, 2013, 12:30 PM EST

    Richard Jefferson Jazz

    Richard Jefferson is in his 13th NBA season, and for the first time in his career will be an unrestricted free agent this summer. After earning over $100 million in salary, you can understand why money will be the least of his concerns when signing what may be his final contract. Jefferson was open in…

  14. The Extra Pass: Bucks are bad, and that’s good; plus Wednesday’s recaps

    John Henson

    By D.J. Foster All over the league, we’ve seen young teams fighting against the tank. If the playoffs started today, the Boston Celtics and Phoenix Suns would be in the playoffs. This was unfathomable a few months ago. It wasn’t just about their rosters being bad – they were supposed to be bad. The Milwaukee…

  15. Wednesday night NBA grades: Amar’e Stoudemire played well? Yes. Yes he did.

    Dec 12, 2013, 2:21 AM EST

    Chicago Bulls v New York Knicks

    Our quick look around the association on a busy Wednesday night. Amar’e Stoudemire, New York Knicks. Stoudemire played 30 minutes. Stoudemire was clutch, hitting a key jumper with less than 3 minutes to go after the Bulls had stormed from 23 points back to tie the game. Stoudemire played good interior defense. Stoudemire showed a…

  16. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: Golden State Warriors

    Oct 15, 2013, 8:45 AM EST

    Andre Iguodala

    Last season: The Warriors ultimately overachieved when all was said and done in 2013, getting to the second round of the playoffs and taking the eventual Western Conference champion Spurs to six games before their season was ended. For a sixth seed entering the playoffs with just 47 wins and having to go through the…

  17. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: Utah Jazz

    Oct 11, 2013, 8:45 AM EST

    Jazz Scrimmage

    Last season: The Jazz finished 43-39, but they missed the playoffs for the second time in three seasons. Nobody really knew what direction Utah was headed, perhaps including Utah itself. The Jazz kept Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap, both on expiring contracts, past the trade deadline to make a playoff push. All they got was…

  18. Report: Jazz to sign John Lucas

    Jul 15, 2013, 6:25 PM EST

    Toronto Raptors head coach Dwane Casey talks with guard John Lucas III during the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Detroit Pistons in Auburn Hills

    If the Jazz are Riggin’ for Wiggins – and by letting two of their top players (Paul Millsap and Al Jefferson) leave in free agency and trading for hefty contracts (Richard Jefferson, Andris Biedrins and, to a lesser degree, Brandon Rush) just to get draft picks, it sure seems like they are – they’ll still…

  19. Iguodala was an hour away from signing with Dallas then Warriors trade went down

    Jul 12, 2013, 10:49 AM EST

    Andre Iguodala

    Mark Cuban and the Dallas Mavericks were thisclose to signing Andre Iguodala. Instead, a capped-out but aggressive Golden State ownership pulled together a three-team trade that gave them the room to add Iguodala to an already strong Golden State roster and makes them far more dangerous in the West. Iguodala wanted to be a Warrior,…

    Randy Foye

    We told you this could be coming on Monday — veteran two guard Randy Foye could be going from Utah to Golden State as an extension to the Andre Iguodala sign-and-trade to Golden State. Now that is all but official, it has been agreed to according to the Associated Press. Foye is a free agent…
