  2. Kevin Love imitates LeBron’s off-the-wall dunk (VIDEO)

    Feb 28, 2014, 11:45 AM EST

    Kevin Love

    Anything LeBron James can do Kevin Love can do better…. Well, maybe not. Especially if we are talking defense. But as for exhibition dunks after practice he can. Recently LeBron put on a post-practice dunking exhibition, Love decided to imitate/mock/poke some fun at “the King” and you see the results above — off the wall…

    Ronny Turiaf

    Wednesday night, Minnesota’s Ronny Turiaf injured his knee when he went up for a rebound and came down awkwardly. He left the game and did not return. Now comes the really bad news — he suffered a bone bruise in his knee and will be out about three weeks, something Flip Saunders said and was…

  4. Minnesota’s Nikola Pekovic out 7-10 days with bursitis in right ankle

    Jan 28, 2014, 4:25 PM EST

    Charlotte Bobcats v Minnesota Timberwolves

    You didn’t think we were going to go another day without an NBA injury, did you? The last time the Minnesota Timberwolves were above .500 they were 8-7 and you hadn’t even had your Thanksgiving turkey yet. Ten times since then they have gotten back to .500 and 10 times they lost the next game.…

    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. • One of my personal favorites around the league, Ronny Turiaf was back on…

  6. Breaking down the Derrick Williams for Mbah a Moute trade: It’s as win-win as it gets

    Nov 26, 2013, 12:16 PM EST

    Derrick Williams

    The first rule for a GM in “winning” a trade is to make the other GM think he’s winning it. Even if you think you’re fleecing him. The swap sending Derrick Williams to Sacramento and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute to Minnesota — which has become official — would have been an easy sell for both…

  7. Timberwolves’ Ronny Turiaf out indefinitely after suffering fractured elbow

    Nov 2, 2013, 8:45 PM EST

    Ronny Turiaf

    The Timberwolves had their season completely derailed last year by injuries to the bulk of the team’s core rotation players. While the stars are healthy in Minnesota for now, another reserve went down with an injury that should keep him sidelined for quite some time. Ronny Turiaf, signed this summer for frontcourt depth as a…

    DeAndre Jordan

    Last season: The Clippers finished the regular season with a franchise best 56 wins, good enough for the fourth seed in the West and home court advantage in the first round of the playoffs over the Memphis Grizzlies. L.A. went up two games to none in the series, before Memphis came back to win the…

    Kevin Love, Nikola Pekovic, Ricky Rubio

    Last season: The Timberwolves never had much of a chance to finish better than their 31-51 record, thanks to a rash of injuries to the team’s top players. Kevin Love, Ricky Rubio, Chase Budinger and Nikola Pekovic all missed substantial time due to injury, rendering the season an unforced failure in the process. Signature highlight…

  10. Timberwolves trying to get Alexey Shved to smile more

    Oct 7, 2013, 12:53 PM EST

    Alexey Shved

    The Russian culture is not one of smiles — the Moscow Times traces it back to the Cold War and before, noting that generations were raised about how Americans had insincere smiles. The stereotypical Russian disposition comes off as a little more austere. Alexey Shved is Russian, but the Minnesota backup point guard plays on…

  11. Channing Frye on his return to Suns: ‘I never felt like I was done’

    Channing Frye

    PHOENIX – The big news out of Suns media day on Monday was the team making official what Channing Frye had announced personally the night before: that he has been cleared to play by a multitude of physicians, and will be back on the active roster beginning immediately. “There’s a lot of weird feelings going…

  12. Timberwolves rookie Gorgui Dieng tweaks ankle in scrimmage

    Sep 20, 2013, 2:54 PM EST

    Gorgui Dieng

    Now is the time of year when basketball players — trying to get in shape before camp — start getting nagging injuries. Some of these are far more serious than others. The Minnesota Timberwolves may feel like they are owed some good injury Karma after last season, but on Friday this happened to rookie center…

    Ronny Turiaf,  Matt Barnes

    We’re almost out of the deep offseason woods, where in our effort to provide constant content, the mildly amusing quotes of fringe players make it into stories of their own during the slow summer months. But we’re not there just yet. Ronny Turiaf, now with the Minnesota Timberwolves, had an interesting remark when describing his…

  15. American players stashed overseas, it doesn’t work out all that often

    Aug 16, 2013, 11:32 AM EST

    Raptors Heat Basketball

    At least six players American college players drafted in the second round — including James Ennis of Miami and Colton Iverson of the Boston Celtics — and as many as 11 total could sign their first contract overseas. It’s a full blown trend — for a long time NBA teams had drafted European players then…

  16. Report: Clippers nearing two-year deal with free agent big man Byron Mullens

    Jul 18, 2013, 12:04 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Charlotte Bobcats

    The Clippers have had a strong offseason, shoring up plenty of areas on the roster with a variety of moves intended to push the team to the league’s top tier, or at the very least, further than the first round of the playoffs. The one area that L.A. is still sorely lacking in is frontcourt…

  17. Ronny Turiaf agrees to two-year deal with the Timberwolves

    Jul 11, 2013, 9:53 PM EST

    Ed Davis, Darrell Arthur, Ronny Turiaf

    Ronny Turiaf has agreed to a two-year deal to join the Minnesota Timberwolves, his agent Mark Bartelstein announced in a blast to several media outlets, including the Minnesota StarTribune.

  18. Report: Ronny Turiaf could be headed to Minnesota, too.

    Jul 11, 2013, 3:11 PM EST

    Ronny Turiaf,  Matt Barnes

    Does it seem to anyone else like Minnesota is signing every available free agent the last 48 hours? Veteran big man Ronny Turiaf could be part of that mix, reports Marc Stein at ESPN. He says the Timberwolves are the “clear frontrunner” to sign Turiaf, certainly for the league minimum. In his eight NBA seasons…

  19. Clippers agree to one-year deal with Ryan Hollins

    Jul 7, 2013, 3:30 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Los Angeles Clippers

    The Clippers have had a very successful offseason. They’ve signed Chris Paul to a max contract, re-signed Matt Barnes, traded for Jared Dudley and J.J. Redick to get help on the wing and some solid perimeter shooting, and replaced Eric Bledsoe with Darren Collison as a backup to Paul at a very reasonable price. They can’t…

  20. Spurs’ Patty Mills shows off impressive towel-waving repertoire (VIDEO)

    Feb 20, 2013, 5:04 PM EST

    Tim Duncan, Patty Mills

    Patty Mills spends about 10 minutes a game on the floor for the Spurs, backing up Tony Parker at the point. Which leaves 38 minutes a game for towel waving. And the Australian has become quite good at it. He has a lot of moves and he named them. It may lack the irrational exuberance…

  21. Lakers problems: It’s all about the defense

    Jan 6, 2013, 9:28 AM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Los Angeles Clippers

    Pau Gasol cannot find his place in the Mike D’Antoni offense. Steve Nash is still clearly not fully used to his new teammates. The Lakers lack shooters. With all the talent the Buss family is paying a pretty penny (well, many pennies) for we all expected an exceptional offense from the Lakers. So it’s been…

  22. Report: Celtics want another big, may offer Lee to get it

    Dec 18, 2012, 8:44 AM EST

    Boston Celtics guard Courtney Lee drives to the basket past Brooklyn Nets forward Reggie Evans in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Boston

    Things are not right in Boston — this was a veteran team that was expected to break out of the pack in the East and be the team that would challenge Miami for conference supremacy. Instead the Knicks have broken out of the pack while the Celtics have floated around .500 (12-11) and they are…

  23. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Bucks tried to give up 29 point lead, hang on to beat Nets

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while watching some goat farmers win the Amazing Race… Jazz 117, Lakers 110: The Lakers most passionate and probably best player was Jordan Hill. That’s not a good sign. The Lakers defense was sad and Utah outworked them, we break it…

  24. Video: Lakers’ Robert Sacre Knows How To Celebrate
