    Feb 28, 2014, 5:54 PM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans v Sacramento Kings

    The Pelicans’ new look roster had potential — if all the new pieces could meld and Anthony Davis could start to blossom they would be a very interesting team the second half of the season.

  7. Lakers engaged in talks with multiple teams to trade Jordan Hill

    Feb 19, 2014, 10:38 PM EDT

    jordan hill

    As the Lakers continue to look at ways to shed salary and potentially get under the luxury tax threshold this season, Jordan Hill is a player that many expect to be dealt before Thursday’s trade deadline passes. L.A. was in talks with Brooklyn a couple of days ago, mainly because the Nets have a $5.25…

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

    Feb 10, 2014, 3:24 PM EDT

    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…

  10. Pelicans’ lose center Jason Smith for season after knee surgery

    Feb 3, 2014, 8:26 PM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans v Denver Nuggets

    Jason Smith has not been the ideal complement to Anthony Davis along the front line in New Orleans this season — when the two were on the court together this season the Pelicans were -1 point per 100 possessions (and both the team’s offensive and defensive ratings were pretty close to the season averages overall…

    Feb 1, 2014, 10:29 AM EDT

    Babbitt shoots over Fournier during NBA basketball game in Portland, Oregon

    We told you a couple days ago the Pelicans wanted to bring in Luke Babbitt for the rest of the season, but there was one big hurdle in the way — agreeing to a buyout with his Russian team. That hurdle has been cleared. And soon Babbitt will be playing in New Orleans, reports Chris…

  12. Report: Pelicans want to sign Luke Babbitt but it’s going to cost them

    Jan 29, 2014, 4:34 PM EDT

    Babbitt shoots over Fournier during NBA basketball game in Portland, Oregon

    To answer your first question, Luke Babbitt has been playing for BC Nizhny Novgorod in central Russia. A city where the high temperature Thursday is predicted to be zero. You might imagine he’d like to get back stateside. And the Pelicans want to bring him back for the rest of the season, but the question…

    Jan 14, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    NBA: Sacramento Kings at Miami Heat

    The Memphis Grizzlies traded Rudy Gay and reached the Western Conference Finals.

Regardless of anything Gay did, his perceived value dropped considerably in the last two years. But might Gay be taking control of his own…

    Jan 13, 2014, 11:02 PM EDT

    Ryan Anderson

    It looked like things were not good when Ryan Anderson had to be carried off the court on a stretcher. We knew things were bad when the Pelicans said he would be out indefinitely with a herniated disc in his back. Now comes the news that Anderson will be out at least two months, and…

  16. The Extra Pass: Klay Thompson’s interesting statistical season; plus Sunday’s recaps

    Jan 13, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Golden State Warriors

    Stephen Curry gets most of the headlines, and he earns them. Just remove Andre Iguodala from the rotation and the Warriors become pedestrian (as we have seen). Andrew Bogut anchors it all down. However we shouldn’t leave Klay Thompson off the list. When you start to look at the Sports VU camera data from the…

  17. Report: Pelicans shopping around Eric Gordon, his huge contract

    Jan 10, 2014, 12:36 PM EDT

    New Orleans Pelicans  v Indiana Pacers

    There was a time three years ago when Eric Gordon looked like the best young two guard in the NBA, a guy on the rise who could be a key cornerstone of a franchise. Then came a lot of injuries (and a lot of questions about rehab, and questions about his desire to play in…

    Jan 7, 2014, 11:04 AM EDT

    Ryan Anderson

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

    Jan 6, 2014, 2:29 PM EDT

    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.

  20. Pelicans’ Ryan Anderson leaves on a stretcher in Boston (VIDEO)

    Jan 3, 2014, 10:36 PM EDT

    Ryan Anderson

    Scary moment in Boston on Friday, when the Pelicans’ Ryan Anderson was carted off the floor on a stretcher after a collision with Gerald Wallace of the Celtics. Anderson appeared to be talkative and moving all limbs throughout the process, and gave a thumbs up as he left the floor which we hope is a…

    Ajinca_Alexis

    The last time we saw French center Alexis Ajinca in an NBA game it was 2011 with the Raptors. He had been a bit player with Dallas and Charlotte before that.

  23. PBT’s NBA Power Rankings: Stability at the top, trades could shake up bottom

    Dec 16, 2013, 1:47 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Portland Trail Blazers

    There is no movement at the top of the standings as the top five teams went 15-1 last week (and that one loss was to another top 5 team). However, get past that five and you get into teams like the Rockets, Suns and others where trades could really change rankings as we move toward…

  24. The Extra Pass: Eric Bledsoe’s path from afterthought to building block; plus Sunday’s recaps

    Dec 16, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Phoenix Suns

    In Eric Bledsoe’s final game with the Los Angeles Clippers last season, he played nine minutes and 28 seconds. In that game, the Memphis Grizzlies scored 118 points despite possessing what most would consider a below-average offense. Mike Conley, a player Bledsoe has routinely shut down throughout his career, went to the free throw line…

  25. Zach Randolph hurt by trade rumors: “There ain’t no loyalty or love”

    Dec 14, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Golden State Warriors

    Zach Randolph doesn’t want to leave Memphis. But there are rumors. Ones he is being shopped around — although the ones that he could be moved for Ryan Anderson of the Pelicans have no validity — or that he could bolt as a free agent. It’s all about the money. Memphis is a small market team…
