  1. Tuesday morning one liners

    Dec 6, 2011, 10:44 AM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 5, 2011, 10:43 AM EST

    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…

  3. Report: Heat in the lead for Battier

    Dec 4, 2011, 6:09 PM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 2, 2011, 11:01 AM EST

    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…

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

    Dec 1, 2011, 11:01 AM EST

    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.…

  6. Free agents already eyeing Miami as destination

    Nov 29, 2011, 9:17 AM EST

    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…

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

    Nov 28, 2011, 3:05 PM EST

    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…

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

    Nov 28, 2011, 11:47 AM EST

    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…

  9. Dalembert considering Heat, Knicks, Rockets

    Nov 28, 2011, 12:52 AM EST

    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…

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

    Nov 26, 2011, 10:15 PM EST

    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…

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

    Nov 25, 2011, 8:01 AM EST

    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,…

  12. Power Balance owes Kobe Bryant, Kings big money

    Nov 23, 2011, 8:10 AM EST

    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…

  13. Power Balance to file bankruptcy, not leaving Sacramento

    Nov 22, 2011, 1:04 PM EST

    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…

  14. Kings pick up Keith Smart as assistant coach

    Nov 16, 2011, 3:32 PM EST

    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…

  15. Would lost season increase chances Kings move to Anaheim?

    Nov 15, 2011, 2:03 PM EST

    honda2center72109327

    You want to know why NBA owners were willing to cut off the Maloof brothers at the knees, block a Kings move to Anaheim and give Sacramento one more shot to keep its only major league sports franchise? Yesterday. The owners have understood from the start this was going to be a long and ugly…

  16. J.J. Hickson is one game and done in Israel

    Nov 4, 2011, 3:16 PM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Cleveland Cavaliers

    J.J. Hickson is not going to go down in history as one of the legends of Israeli basketball. The Sacramento Kings forward played one game for Bnei Hasharon of Israel but has been released after one game because he was late for a couple practices. Practice? Yes, we’re talkin’ ’bout practice. Noam Schiller, writer for…

  17. Kings minority owners may be forced to sell share of team

    Oct 31, 2011, 1:17 PM EST

    Image (1) Kings_logo-thumb-250x355-16479-thumb-125x177-16480.gif for post 3841

    Because the Kings didn’t have enough instability in their organization right now…. A long-standing minority owner of Sacramento may be forced to sell his share of the team soon as he had the misfortune of putting a lot of his money behind a new luxury hotel that opened right as the economy started to tank,…

  18. Kings struggle to keep all those new sponsors happy

    Oct 27, 2011, 1:04 PM EST

    Kings Farewell Basketball

    It is one of the key reasons the Kings are still the Sacramento Kings. Sacramento Mayor walked up to the NBA’s owners — not the Maloof brothers that own the Kings, but the rest of them — and said he could bring in $10 million more in local corporate sponsorship. Then he went out and…

  19. New documentary tracks effort to keep Kings in Sacramento

    Oct 26, 2011, 8:42 AM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Sacramento Kings

    A team of bloggers — more importantly, a team of Kings fans — has started to make a documentary about the effort to keep the Kings in Sacramento. A documentary that talks to everyone: The Kings broadcast team, former team officials, Mayor Kevin Johnson, and fans. Okay, it doesn’t talk to the Maloofs, but they…

  20. J.J. Hickson signs to play in Israel during lockout

    Oct 21, 2011, 12:02 PM EST

    2008 NBA Rookie Portraits

    You are not going to see a flood of NBA stars headed overseas now that the lockout has gotten ugly. Players talk about it, but most teams have full rosters and the NBA players that have gone overseas have struggled to adjust. Teams are not going to pay big money to NBA guys if they…

  21. David Stern could learn a thing or two from Kings fans

    Oct 13, 2011, 10:20 AM EST

    *Jul 24 - 00:05*

    I’d say I’m surprised but I’m not. Tuesday at about mid-day I saw my first indications that something was brewing in Sacramento – a seemingly innocuous tweet from Sacramento Kings fan Amy Hyden (@sacgirl88) to G/F Donte’ Greene about setting up an exhibition game: @dontegreeneCOS hey Donte, Is there any way you can set up…

  22. NBA doing the Maloofs’ talking for them

    Oct 6, 2011, 9:52 AM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Sacramento Kings

    The Maloofs’ relationship with Sacramento is decidedly love-hate. When the Kings were winning and Joe and Gavin were plastered on TV during games, Sacramentans were ready to propose. But it’s funny how life works — the team started losing and (gulp) started asking the city of Sacramento for money, and everything has been downhill since.…

  23. NBA negotiating Sacramento arena deal, Maloofs not there

    Oct 5, 2011, 4:09 PM EST

    Image (1) maloof_brothers-thumb-250x140-16171.jpg for post 6238

    This should tell you all you need to know about how things are shaking out with the Sacramento arena proposal. There is a big meeting on the issue Wednesday in Dallas, where powerhouse arena operator AEG will meet with Sacramento city leaders and NBA league officials — led by Thunder owner Clay Bennett — to…

  24. Sac City Council members tip their hands on arena vote

    Sep 28, 2011, 8:59 AM EST

    ProposedKingsArena

    Sometimes you need to see the look in somebody’s eyes when they’re forced to make a decision before you truly know how they feel. We got to see that on Tuesday night when the Sacramento City Council voted 7-2 to approve $550,000 to secure consultants, lawyers, and parking experts to start formalizing a funding proposal…

  25. AEG acknowledges interest in Sacramento Entertainment and Sports Complex

    Sep 27, 2011, 8:28 AM EST

    AEG LA

    It wasn’t a matter of if, it was when. Anschutz Entertainment Group, known better as the stadium and arena operations giant AEG, acknowledged for the first time Friday that they might provide “assistance” to Sacramento mayor Kevin Johnson and the Think Big Sacramento coalition in their quest for an arena, according to the Sac Bee.…
