    City council meetings can be dull, but the Sacramento City Council meeting on Tuesday to decide if the Kings should go forward with a key element of their plan to secure a new Entertainment and Sports Complex (ESC) was anything but. Alright, it was still pretty boring, but Tuesday’s meeting had everything you could ask…

  2. Jamal Crawford rules out Knicks, narrows choices to Portland and Sacramento

    Dec 14, 2011, 6:26 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    Jamal Crawford has narrowed his free agent choice to two teams, according to multiple reports. Portland and Sacramento have emerged as the leading candidates to land Crawford’s services, after the Knicks and Pacers were reportedly also in the chase. It’s unclear if the Knicks made an official offer, but Crawford did reject one worth $10…

  3. On Marcus Thornton and the messages sent in free agency

    Dec 10, 2011, 10:49 PM EDT

    Marcus Thornton

    There’s no use in denying it: free agency in the NBA is kind of a blast, and particularly so when the entire period is condensed into a few hyper-active weeks of player movement. But beyond the surface-level intrigue of roster shuffling is a pretty clear demonstration of league-wide values. Free agency gives general managers the…

  4. Weekend NBA rumors and deals (constantly updated)

    Dec 10, 2011, 8:30 PM EDT

    NBA basketball spaulding

    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…

  5. 2011 NBA Free Agency and Trade Current Events: This league is bananas, b-a-n-a-n-a-s

    Dec 10, 2011, 10:08 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Chicago Bulls

    Let’s say you had a full day of work on Thursday, and then a dinner engagement with a friend, or your kid had a basketball game or something. Then on Friday you had another full day, and then a work Christmas party. This is the holiday season, everyone’s busy. Perhaps you’ve missed what’s gone on in…

  6. 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,…

  7. Kings sign Chuck Hayes to a modest four-year, $21 million deal

    Dec 9, 2011, 4:07 PM EDT

    Chuck Hayes

    The post-lockout free agency period has seen teams throw gobs of money at Caron Butler, Tyson Chandler, and Nene, but out in Sactown they’re showing some impressive restraint. The Kings aren’t in any rush to substantial salary commitments to their books, but in their efforts to build up their roster and meet the league’s payroll…

    Rajon Rondo Chris Paul

    Our morning look around the NBA with stories worth reading and notes that are not their own post here at PBT. The Celtics may have been closer to getting Chris Paul than you think. Eddy Curry is about to sign a deal with the Heat. So, you can just start sizing them all for championship…

  9. Chuck Hayes on verge of deal to join Sacramento Kings

    Dec 8, 2011, 9:35 AM EDT

    Chuck Hayes

    The Sacramento Kings may just have lined up some good post defense. The Kings have made a four year, $20 million offer to the free agent forward who played his entire career for the Rockets, reports Marc Stein of ESPN. What’s more, it looks like Hayes will take the deal. The Kings will have a…

    NBA And Players Representatives Meet To Discuss Possible Settlement

    Our morning look around the NBA with stories that are not their own post here at PBT. In case you didn’t get it in your inbox, here is David Stern’s letter to fans sent out yesterday. After the lockout and months of talk of change, does the new NBA feel any different than the old…

  11. Power Balance name may come off Sacramento Arena

    Dec 6, 2011, 11:47 PM EDT

    Arco Arena

    The Kings stood by Power Balance when the company filed bankruptcy. Because the Kings can’t turn their back on anybody who might give them money right now. But it looks like the Kings will not be seeing any more money from Power Balance and the company name may come off the Sacramento arena where the…

    New Jersey Nets forward Outlaw celebrates after scoring against the Toronto Raptors during triple overtime in their NBA game in London

    Our morning look around the NBA with stories that are not their own post here at PBT. Travis Outlaw had surgery on his hand this summer after a boxing injury (he hit a heavy bag and broke it). That was eight weeks ago and things are supposed to be healed, but the Nets doctors would…

  13. Monday morning one liners: How CP3, Dwight Howard can team up

    Dec 5, 2011, 10:43 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard Chris Paul

    Our morning look around the NBA with stories that are not other posts here at PBT. What if the Hornets traded Chris Paul to the Magic? That would be interesting. The Nets are going very hard after Nene. New Orleans has made bringing back David West its top priority. The Lakers might consider Delonte West…

  14. Report: Heat in the lead for Battier

    Dec 4, 2011, 6:09 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game One

    Shane Battier is the type of player you would expect to take a discount to ring chase. He’s been a glue guy in Houston, sticking with them through injuries and curious decisions. He was the chemistry guy in Memphis, helping the younger players get better and making the three that gave the franchise its first…

  15. Friday morning one liners: Where Afflalo gets some love

    Dec 2, 2011, 11:01 AM EDT

    Arron Afflalo

    Our daily list of things you should know about that didn’t fit in our other posts. Who is the most coveted free agent not over 6’11? Arron Afflalo of the Nuggets, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein. He is restricted and Denver will match any reasonable offer. Brandon Rush made some tweets that would have gotten…

  16. Thursday morning one liners: NBA rumor mill keeps churning

    Durant football

    LeBron James and Kevin Durant played flag football Wednesday night. The score: Nobody tore an ACL. That’s the only score that matters. If you want to get an early jump on MVP voting (which, admittedly, may be a tad premature what with training camps not even open yet) we’ve got you covered here at NBC.…

  17. Free agents already eyeing Miami as destination

    Nov 29, 2011, 9:17 AM EDT

    Heat's James celebrates a basket with teammate Wade during Game 1 of the NBA Finals basketball series in Miami

    Warm weather. No state income tax. The chance to play with LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. The chance to win a ring. All of the tantalizing distractions a single man could ask for. There are a lot of reasons NBA players like Miami. And right now, the upcoming crop of free agents seems to like…

  18. Mike Miller still likely gone in Miami, amnesty casualty

    Nov 28, 2011, 3:05 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Miami Heat - Game Four

    In an ideal world, the Miami Heat would like to keep Mike Miller around, because if he does bounce back from last season’s injuries and this summer’s surgeries, he is a perfect fit. He can stretch the floor with his shot, is a solid team defender and can rebound. But alas, the math of the…

  19. Monday morning one liners: Coming, going from Europe

    Nov 28, 2011, 11:47 AM EDT

    CBA 11/12 First Round: Guangdong Hongyuan v Zhejiang Chouzhou

    With the end of the NBA lockout, NBA players are exiting Europe and heading back to the good ol’ US of A for an NBA season. What players are on the move are the highlights of our morning one liners. If you read one thing today, make it this very thoughtful look at where the…

  20. Dalembert considering Heat, Knicks, Rockets

    Nov 28, 2011, 12:52 AM EDT

    Samuel Dalembert

    Centers are at a premium in this league, that should be evident by now. Nene, Tyson Chandler, Marc Gasol, all will lead this free agency class. Dwight Howard headlines the next. Chandler’s defensive impact was a primary factor in the Mavericks winning the title. So Samuel Dalembert will be getting his fair share of calls…

  21. Kevin Martin heads to the gym (and other lockout reactions)

    Nov 26, 2011, 10:15 PM EDT

    Kevin Love Visits FOX Business

    Just like NBA fans, NBA players were shocked and excited early Saturday morning. (No, not like that. What is wrong with you people?) When a bleary-eyed David Stern and Billy Hunter sat side-by-side in a NYC conference room about 3:30 Saturday morning to announce a deal, the NBA players who were up got the news…

  22. Report: Kings guard Tyreke Evans signs to play in Italy

    Nov 25, 2011, 8:01 AM EDT

    Tyreke Evans

    And the list of quality players signing overseas during the lockout continues. Tyreke Evans, the guard that is one of the cornerstones of the Sacramento Kings rebuilding effort has signed to play with Virtus Roma in Italy for the remainder of the NBA lockout, reports Sportando. No word yet on what he will be paid,…

    Italy Basketball Bryant Bologna

    Power Balance — the makers of those wrist bands that a number of NBA players wear — has settled a class action lawsuit that said they were crap. There have been a few of those lawsuits and a lot of legal fees. Andnow the company is filing bankruptcy. Which is mostly interesting to me because…

  24. Power Balance to file bankruptcy, not leaving Sacramento

    Nov 22, 2011, 1:04 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v New Orleans Hornets - Game Four

    I’m not going to tell you that the Power Balance wristbands favored by NBA players and other pro athletes are a scam, I’d say do the research. Don’t just ask Lamar Odom, actually do the research. Or, consider the fact the company just had to file bankruptcy organization after settling a class action lawsuit against…

  25. Kings pick up Keith Smart as assistant coach

    Nov 16, 2011, 3:32 PM EDT

    Keith Smart Stephen Curry

    Hey — actual basketball related news! Enjoy this post for the diversion from the lawsuits and foolishness. Keith Smart, let go as head coach of the Golden State Warriors after one season, has been picked up to be an assistant coach on Paul Westphal’s staff in Sacramento, reports the Sacramento Bee. He joins 12-year NBA…
