  1. Wednesday And-1 links: Taiwanese animation explains Metta World Peace

    Apr 25, 2012, 11:15 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers' Metta World Peace, formerly known as Ron Artest, smiles during a news conference in Los Angeles

    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. • Well, that bit of animation from Taiwan should explain everything perfectly. • If…

  2. D-Rose matters, but depth real key in Bulls/Heat showdown

    Apr 19, 2012, 2:52 PM EDT

    Miami Heat's James and Wade look on during the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Chicago Bulls in Chicago

    Everyone will want to watch the Bulls and the Heat and discuss how this is a preview of the Eastern Conference finals. It’s not. Oh, these two teams will be there, you can bet on that. But after two rounds of the playoffs teams change and evolve — the Bulls and Heat that take the…

  3. Dwyane Wade, Deron Williams out for Heat vs. Nets Monday

    Apr 16, 2012, 6:08 PM EDT

    Dwyane Wade, Miami Heat

    Not that it is going to make much difference in the final outcome, but the Nets will be without Deron Williams and the Heat will be without Dwyane Wade Monday night when Miami and New Jersey clash. Williams was a surprise late scratch due to a calf injury, tweets Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel.…

  4. Bulls beat Heat in overtime, but neither team looks ready for the playoffs

    Apr 13, 2012, 12:03 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Chicago Bulls

    The Bulls and the Heat are far and away the top two teams in the Eastern Conference standings, so it’s only natural that their nationally televised tilt on Thursday night would be billed as a potential preview of the conference finals. But if either of them play the way they did in this one for…

  5. Wednesday And-1 links: Nobody likes one-and-done rule

    NCAA Men's Championship Game - Kansas v Kentucky

    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. • Some good thoughts on the one-and-done rule for college players — nobody likes…

  6. It’s official — Heat sign Ronny Turiaf for rest of season

    Mar 21, 2012, 4:55 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Denver Nuggets

    UPDATE 4:55 pm: It is official, Ronny Turiaf is a member of the Miami Heat. Let the sideline cheering begin. The Heat had made runs at bigger name big men this season — Kenyon Martin when he returned from China, Joel Przybilla, others — but this gives them a little more depth up front. He…

  7. Report: Heat, Thunder frontrunners for Derek Fisher’s services

    Mar 20, 2012, 11:35 AM EDT

    Derek Fisher

    How badly did Derek Fisher want to get out of Houston? He gave up his entire $3.4 million player option for next season, according to Real GM. That’s a lot of green to leave on the table. But he is out — or will be Wednesday when he clears waivers — and is talking about…

  8. Report: Celtics, Heat in lead to get Ronny Turiaf’s services

    Mar 19, 2012, 10:39 PM EDT

    Ronny Turiaf

    Ronny Turiaf headed west on the trade deadline — well, that’s not accurate, his contract headed West. His contract followed JaVale McGee from Washington to Denver (with Nene headed the other direction) but the Nuggets had no intention of keeping him and he is being waived and bought out as we speak. He will be…

  9. Kobe understands Fisher trade better than some Lakers fans

    Mar 18, 2012, 3:30 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant Derek Fisher

    It’s a cold business with little room for sentimentality. Derek Fisher was part of the problem for the Lakers at the point guard spot. If the Lakers were going to have any shot at a ring they needed an upgrade — Ramon Sessions is an upgrade. A big upgrade. Steve Blake is a solid backup.…

  10. Friday And-1 links: Did Wade mock Dwight Howard’s loyalty?

    Mar 16, 2012, 11:06 AM EDT

    Dwyane Wade, Dwight Howard

    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). Was Dwyane Wade mocking Dwight Howard’s loyalty to the Magic? Kind of looks that way to me. Rudy Gay has cleared the league concussion protocols…

  11. Nuggets reportedly close to deal with Wilson Chandler

    Mar 16, 2012, 9:54 AM EDT

    Wilson+Chandler+Atlanta+Hawks+v+Denver+Nuggets+Ym_wkv-B6Cgl

    The end to one of the unusual courtship dances in a while could be coming to an end. Wilson Chandler was a restricted free agent upon return from his lockout-inspired trip to play in China. He wanted either a long-term deal or a very short one that put him in the free agent market this…

  12. NBA trade deadline report cards: Portland gets an “A”

    Mar 15, 2012, 8:04 PM EDT

    LaMarcus Aldridge, Gerald Wallace, Raymond Felton

    Dwight Howard didn’t get traded and neither did any of Boston’s big three. But there were plenty of moves at the deadline. Here are our grades for each team. Atlanta Hawks: They wanted to move one player to get themselves under the luxury tax line (they are $440,000 over it). They couldn’t do it. So…

  13. Denver trades Nene to Wizards in three-team deal with Clippers

    Mar 15, 2012, 5:00 PM EDT

    Antawn Jamison, Nene

    When the lockout ended, Nene was maybe the most coveted free agent out there — a true big man who is a borderline All-Star theoretically entering his prime. Denver was able to keep him with a five-year, $67 million contract. However, he has spent a chunk of this season injured and not putting up his…

  14. Wednesday And-1 links: Some rumors, Shaq, flu game talk

    Feb 29, 2012, 11:37 AM EDT

    Monta Ellis

    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). Those rumors of a Monta Ellis to the Nets for Brook Lopez trade? Not much to them. Milwaukee will apparently listen to trade offers for…

  15. Jeff Green had successful heart surgery Monday

    Jan 10, 2012, 11:46 AM EDT

    Jeff Green

    Good news out of the Boston area — Jeff Green had successful heart surgery Monday. Green was to be a key part of the Celtics bench until a routine preseason physical found an aneurysm — an abnormal ballooning of an artery near the heart — that required surgery. That surgery went well, according to CSNNE.com.…

  16. Wizards’ Ronny Turiaf breaks his hand, out 5-6 weeks

    Jan 3, 2012, 7:59 AM EDT

    Ronny Turiaf

    You thought Manu Ginobili was the only player who broke his hand Monday, but the Argentinian was not the trend setter here. Wizards backup center and energy guy Ronny Turiaf is out with a broken hand. Here is the tweet from Michael Lee of the Washington Post. Ronny Turiaf has a broken left hand –…

  17. Jeff Green hanging with Celtics, happy he’ll get to play again

    Dec 28, 2011, 3:00 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat - Game Five

    Jeff Green could be devastated, sitting around his house cursing the fates and wondering what might have been. He was to be a key cog for a Celtics team looking to hang a banner, instead he is out for the season following heart surgery. Instead, Green is in a pretty good place. He spoke with…

  18. Chuck Hayes fails physical with Kings, contract voided

    Dec 19, 2011, 3:51 PM EDT

    Chuck Hayes

    In the wake of what happened with Jeff Green of the Celtics last week, we can only hope that this isn’t as serious or at least is as treatable. In a surprise move the Sacramento Kings have voided the free agent contract of Chuck Hayes, the team announced, as reported by CSNBayArea.com. He had abnormalities appear…

  19. 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…

  20. Timberwolves about to sign J.J. Barea to four-year deal

    Dec 12, 2011, 10:30 AM EDT

    J.J. Barea

    J.J. Barea, the undersized point guard who slashed his way through defenses (and angered Andrew Bynum), helping bring a championship to Dallas, is about to sign a four-year deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves. Dallas offered Barea just a one-year deal (they are trying to preserve cap space for next summer) so he will be jumping…

    Just because you didn’t go to work today — you’re at home trying to hang Christmas lights, like that’s not work — doesn’t mean the wheels of NBA free agency and trades stopped. Not in the least. This post is your one-stop shop for up-to-date, breaking info on what is happening around the league. (If…

  22. Knicks will sign Mike Bibby for the minimum salary, but keep their point guard options open

    Dec 10, 2011, 7:16 PM EDT

    Mike Bibby

    The New York Knicks have gone to great lengths to find a talented center counterpart for Amar’e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony. They used the amnesty clause to waive veteran point guard Chauncey Billups, and blew $14 million in the process. They chipped in another $3 million just to ensure the passing of the three-team deal…

  23. Tyson Chandler signing official, Chauncey Billups gets the amnesty boot

    Dec 10, 2011, 2:45 PM EDT

    Knicks Celtics Basketball

    Thanks for coming, Chauncey. After being traded for Denver in a deal he didn’t want (Billups is from Denver and was happy there), as a sidekick to Carmelo Anthony, and then having his option exercised to pay him $16 million, the New York Knicks exercised their amnesty clause on Chauncey Billups Saturday. The move means…

  24. NBA “Deal Day” moves and rumors (constantly updated)

    Dec 9, 2011, 7:38 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Chicago Bulls - Game Two

    Today is going to be the Black Friday Sales of the NBA — there will be deals happening fast here, there and everywhere. Just like at Wal*Mart, you might have GMs pepper spraying others to make sure they get the player they want. It’s going to be hard to keep up with all the information,…

  25. Might Chauncey Billups retire? Or end up with the Clippers?

    Dec 9, 2011, 3:58 PM EDT

    NBPA Meet To Discuss Current CBA Offer

    We know one thing about Chauncey Billups next season: He will not be playing for the New York Knicks. He might not be playing anywhere — he is threatening to retire if a team he doesn’t want to play for claims him on waivers. But what if it is an intriguing team, like the Clippers?…
