  2. Five NBA Draft sleepers to watch

    Jun 25, 2012, 3:13 PM EDT

    Iona v Brigham Young

    Admit it, this is one of your favorite parts of the NBA draft — picking out the guy nobody is watching because you think he’s got that special something. You want to find the next Isaiah Thomas. You know he can help your team. And you pull for him because you want to be right,…

  3. NBA Draft notes: What will the Bobcats do at No. 2?

    Kentucky Wildcats forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist looks up after being fouled during the first half against the Kansas Jayhawks in the men's NCAA Final Four championship college basketball game in New Orleans

    We are just one week away from the NBA draft, and that means there are more rumors and reports than James Harden has beard combs. Here are some highlights of the buzz on Thursday: • The Bobcats are still looking to move the No. 2 overall pick, but they don’t want to go farther down…

  5. What would Team USA under-23 Olympic team look like?

    Jun 15, 2012, 7:37 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant, Team USA

    David Stern wants it. Mark Cuban wants it. Most of his fellow NBA owners want it. At his pre-finals press conference, David Stern again said he wants the Olympic basketball program to start following the soccer model — under-23. There would be one World Cup every four years with no age restrictions, but the Olympics…

  6. Lillard wants to go from Weber State to NBA starter in a year

    Jun 14, 2012, 12:53 PM EDT

    Damian Lillard, Julian Demalleville

    From Weber State and the Big Sky Conference to starting NBA point guard in a year? That’s the leap Damian Lillard says he wants to make. Says he is ready to make. Not everybody is convinced, but Lillard is climbing draft boards. He was working out for the Kings (No. 5 pick) Wednesday and said…

  7. In depth: Stern fires shot across the bow at the Maloofs, who continue to threaten the NBA’s billion dollar arena subsidy

    Jun 13, 2012, 2:56 PM EDT

    team maloof with stern

    A meticulous planner, everything David Stern says is run through a filter of lawyerly instinct and an ever-present awareness of his surroundings. So when David Aldridge asked him if the NBA would support the Maloofs in their desire to move the Sacramento Kings to Anaheim on Tuesday – don’t think for a second that he…

  8. Stern says owners would not approve Sacramento move. Yet.

    George Maloof, Gavin Maloof, Joe Maloof

    I keep waiting for it. You keep waiting for it. Pretty much the entire city of Sacramento keeps waiting for it. While the owners the Maloof brothers keep saying they do not plan to move the Kings out of Sacramento, nobody believes them. They need a new arena but the family has killed not only…

  10. Report: Kings not likely to offer Tyreke Evans extension

    Jun 8, 2012, 11:35 AM EDT

    Kenneth Faried, Tyreke Evans

    This summer, everyone from the 2009 NBA Draft class is eligible to have their rookie contract extension. For a guy like No. 1 overall pick Blake Griffin it’s a no-brainer. It’s a no-brainer for No. 2 pick Hasheem Thabeet, too, just for a very different reason. But what about Tyreke Evans? The Sacramento rookie of…

  13. Kevin Durant, LeBron James head All-NBA Teams

    May 24, 2012, 2:39 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Miami Heat

    Here’s the problem with nitpicking the All-NBA teams — there are no bad players on any of the first three. You can argue if you want (and as I would) that LaMarcus Aldridge deserves a spot on the third team more than Carmelo Anthony or Dirk Nowitzki, but that doesn’t make the guys on the…

  14. Point guards Irving, Rubio lead NBA All-Rookie team

    May 22, 2012, 3:56 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers rookie Kyrie Irving reacts after a turnover during the second quarter of the Cavaliers NBA basketball game against the Miami Heat in Cleveland

    The NBA is evolving into more of a point-guard league — if you can’t touch a quick ball handler on the perimeter they are going to carve up any defense. With the rules enforced as they are, Tony Parker can’t guard Tony Parker. So no shock that the two guys on top of the NBA…

  15. USA Select team officially announced, no surprises

    May 21, 2012, 2:10 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers rookie Kyrie Irving reacts after a turnover during the second quarter of the Cavaliers NBA basketball game against the Miami Heat in Cleveland

    We told you already — via our man Matt Steinmetz at CSNBayArea.com — who would be on the USA Select team. But now it is official, USA Basketball announced it Monday. The USA Select team are the guys brought in to scrimmage and practice against the Team USA Squad going to London this year for…

  16. Documentary released profiling grassroots effort to keep Kings in Sacramento

    May 16, 2012, 11:47 AM EDT

    take my life

    I called it ‘watching your own funeral,’ but instead of a eulogy there was Fan Appreciation Night. Instead of a pall-bearer, there stood Kobe Bryant. You could’ve written the story of Sacramento’s fight to keep their team with a scalpel, but in this open-heart surgery there would be no anesthetic. The Lakers were in town,…

  17. Cousins, Lin, Wall, Irving head USA Select team roster

    May 14, 2012, 2:38 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Atlanta Hawks

    The USA Select team is the team in waiting — guys invited to the USA Basketball training camp in Las Vegas this summer to push and test the guys actually going to London. The Select Team are the guys Mike Krzyzewski and friends want to see up close, to consider for future Olympics and World…

  18. Maloofs send ex-FBI agent to snoop on local Sacramento businesses

    May 14, 2012, 10:21 AM EDT

    worried george

    During last year’s playoffs, the Maloof family sent an attorney to an Orange County Register reporter’s home to collect evidence. The evidence in question was audio of Phil Jackson comparing the embattled family to unpopular former Dodgers owner Frank McCourt. While the Maloofs may have wanted observers to believe they were merely protecting their image,…

  19. This Kings offseason looks too much like last Kings offseason

    May 9, 2012, 8:44 AM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    One year ago right now, the biggest concern for Sacramento Kings fans was that the team’s owners — the Maloof family — were going to pack up and move the Kings as soon as they could. That issue overshadowed the on the court questions about the young core of the team and how they would…

  21. Report: USA to add players to candidate pool for Olympics

    May 2, 2012, 9:29 AM EDT

    Demarcus Cousins

    Following a rash of injuries — and whatever happened to Lamar Odom — the original pool of 20 players USA Basketball was going to choose from to form its Olympic team this summer is down to 15. The waters are getting a little shallow with injuries to Derrick Rose, Chauncey Billups, LaMarcus Aldridge and Dwight…

  22. Should Olympic basketball be under-23 like soccer?

    May 2, 2012, 8:10 AM EDT

    Olympics Day 16 - Basketball

    This summer, the United States will send it’s best 12 best basketball players to London to represent our nation in the Olympic Games. Mavericks’ owner Mark Cuban hates the idea, and he’s not alone. This summer will be the 20th anniversary of the original Dream Team and for some the bloom is off the rose.…

  23. Team USA not adding players to pool despite injuries

    Apr 26, 2012, 7:07 PM EDT

    Tyson-Chandler-and-Mike-Krzyzewski

    When USA Basketball announced the pool of players it would choose from to select who would represent the USA at the London Olympics this summer, there were 20 names. Now, there are 16 who can go. Dwight Howard (back), LaMarcus Aldridge (hip) and Chauncey Billups (Achilles) are out due to injury and surgery, while Lamar…

  24. Report: Kings will listen to offers for Tyreke Evans

    Apr 26, 2012, 12:59 PM EDT

    Tyreke Evans, Wesley Johnson

    Tyreke Evans was the NBA Rookie of the Year, and attacking combo guard who seemed to have a bright future as an anchor for a rebuilding Sacramento Kings team. But his game has stagnated. Part of that is due to injuries (he is now healthy again), part of it is how he fits in and…

  25. League rescinds 13th technical on Cousins, who plays Tuesday

    Apr 24, 2012, 10:54 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins, Russell Westbrook

    A couple days ago we told you that unless Sacramento’s DeMarcus Cousins got his 13th technical and unless the league rescinded it he would be sitting out Tuesday night. After review, the league decided that the double technical when Cousins went face to face with Bismack Biyombo really shouldn’t have been one. The league made…
