  1. Sponsors fleeing Maloofs amidst uncertainty over Kings’ future

    Sep 21, 2012, 8:45 AM EDT

    Maloofs Eating Carls Jr Barry Bonds

    How much would you pay for the right to advertise with a basketball team that refuses to guarantee where it will be a year from now? If you’re mattress maker Sleep Train and hamburger purveyor Carl’s Jr., the answer is nothing. Those are the reports coming out of Sacramento from the well-connected Carmichael Dave, who…

  3. Jimmer Fredette says he is mentally ready for NBA game now

    Sep 20, 2012, 1:37 PM EDT

    Jimmer Fredette , Kurt Thomas, Nolan Smith

    Jimmer Fredette remains much more a cultural sensation than one on the NBA court. He’s still the pride of Glens Falls, N.Y., where he was a high school star. He is still revered like few others in Utah, a positive public model for many members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (commonly…

  4. Video: Cousins, Davis put on show at Kentucky alumni game

    Sep 19, 2012, 8:06 AM EDT

    United States v Dominican Republic - Men's Exhibition Game

    We told you before that Anthony Davis had quite a night at the Kentucky Alumni Game last week, dropping 40 points. What we didn’t tell you is that he was not the game’s high scorer — DeMarcus Cousins dropped 42. It was a summer show, not a real game. Meaning there was about as much…

  6. The Inbounds: The NBA Hierarchy of Needs Part I, the Star-Builder

    Sep 12, 2012, 12:50 PM EDT

    2009 NBA All-Star Game

    Welcome to The Inbounds, touching on a big idea of the day. It could be news, it could be history, it could be a tangent, it could be love. OK, it’s probably not love. Enjoy. The following is a work of theory and more of a thought exercise than anything else. It’s not based on…

  7. Tyreke Evans promises a big year. Coincidentally, it’s his contract year.

    Sep 12, 2012, 2:18 AM EDT

    Tyreke Evans All-Star

    On your “guys who have to step up next season” list, Tyreke Evans should be near the top. He was the rookie of the year three years ago, averaging 20.1 points, 5.3 rebounds and 5.8 assists per game — only a handful of guys have ever done 20-5-5 as a rookie. But the next two…

  8. Will Seattle billionaire Chris Hansen drastically overpay for the Sacramento Kings?

    chris hansen seattle

    News of billionaire Chris Hansen striking a deal with the Seattle City Council hit the wire late Monday night, as the sides have agreed to a framework on an arena deal that moves them a few smaller hurdles away from becoming an NBA-ready city (courtesy of Chris Daniels of King 5 in Seattle). In a…

  9. The Inbounds: Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade and the actualization of scorers

    Sep 10, 2012, 12:38 PM EDT

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    Does Kobe Bryant need to be more like Dwyane Wade? Or does Dwyane Wade need to be more like Kobe Bryant? Neither? Both? Hungry? Who’s hungry? The biggest challenge for any player in the NBA is the same one so many children struggle with: how to play with others. Particularly those whose talents are self-mobilized.…

  10. Video: Official trailer for NBA 2K13… we’re getting pumped

    Kevin_Durant NBA 2K13

    There are things I love seeing in this video: A healthy Derrick Rose on the bounce, Jason Terry in Celtics green, Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook doing their thing, DeMarcus Cousins creating position on the block like the beast he is. All the things that have me pumped for the start of regular season. Or…

  11. How Tyreke Evans can get his groove back. Maybe.

    Sep 5, 2012, 2:26 PM EDT

    Tyreke Evans, Wesley Johnson

    This is kind of a make or break year for the former Rookie of the Year Tyreke Evans. His rookie year his penetration and scoring at the rim had him scoring 20.1 points plus adding 5.3 rebounds and 5.8 assists per game. Monster numbers for a rookie. With some growth you could see the guy…

    New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith attempts to dunk the ball in their NBA basketball game against the Portland Trail Blazers in New York

    Dyckman Park in New York City is one of those places where on a few warm summer nights there is some crazy run going on. Streetball at it’s best. Which means a screaming announcer, some spectacular shots and everyone looking for their shot. You’re going to find about as much defense as you will fans…

  13. The Inbounds: Can Keith Smart save the Kings’ soul?

    Aug 30, 2012, 10:30 AM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins, Russell Westbrook

    My favorite B-movie of all time is “Killer Clowns from Outer Space.” It is as terrible and ridiculous as the title suggests, an outright cavalcade of campy horror bathed in absurdist light. To try and watch it is to recognize that sometimes, there are things which should not be made, and yet you will watch…

  14. Donte Greene signing with Nets on hold due to ankle surgery

    Aug 29, 2012, 7:03 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Sacramento Kings

    That whole Donte Greene has reached a deal with the Nets thing has fallen apart. And when a player’s agent is being vague, it’s never a good sign. Which brings us to this tweet from Marc Spears of Yahoo Sports: Greene’s expected signing with Nets this week now on hold due to pending surgery on…

  15. Winderman: NBA’s new fiscal reality has veterans considering minimums

    Aug 28, 2012, 9:08 PM EDT

    Andray Blatche

    More than 20 teams still have all or part of their mid-level exception, be it the full $5 million, the $3.1 million taxpayer version or the $2.6 million post-cap-space variety. More than 10 still can put their $2 million bi-annual exception into play. And yet, now a month from the start of training camps, veterans…

  16. Comcast-Spectacor hasn’t spoken with Kings at all, arena project barely off the ground

    Aug 28, 2012, 6:53 PM EDT

    georgemaloofeminem

    Unless there is more to come in the next few days, the Virginia Beach arena press conference didn’t do much to sway the overwhelming opinion that the Sacramento Kings are nowhere near moving there. There were no Maloof appearances, but president of Comcast-Spectacor Peter Luukko spoke to the Virginia Beach city council in support of…

  17. Kings own online store goes dark, not that anyone notices

    2012TRobIntroductionPresser7

    There is just not a lot of demand for Sacramento Kings gear right now. They are not very good, they don’t have a huge national fan base, and some think they have the ugliest jersey in pro sports. Even the local fan base feels ownership has been flipping them the bird for the past few…

  18. Winderman: CBA rules grind NBA player movement to a halt

    Aug 23, 2012, 10:23 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Sacramento Kings

    Donte Greene to the Nets, Martell Webster to the Wizards . . . If it seems like the NBA is in a bit of a personnel limbo, it is because, well, it is. For as much as the floodgates open with the July start of free agency, and for as much as things can change…

    Donte Green

    The Nets have rounded out their roster. Apparently. They bringing in swingman Donte Greene — a guy who had a lot of shots in Sacramento, but like his three pointers often missed the mark. The report of a deal comes from Marc Spears at Yahoo Sports. Over at Nets are Scorching they add this is…

  20. NBA Summer Power Rankings: Free agency moves Lakers up

    Aug 23, 2012, 11:00 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant Dwight Howard

    Summer NBA power rankings are about as meaningful and accurate as preseason college football rankings. At least the NBA isn’t silly enough to have something like this matter in determining a champion. That would be stupid. The top and the bottom of the poll are what you’d expect, but the Lakers and Celtics moved up…

  21. Martell Webster works out for, could end up with Wizards

    Aug 23, 2012, 8:45 AM EDT

    Martell Webster, Rick Adelman

    Trevor Ariza will be the starting swingman for the Washington Wizards, but the team is looking at adding some depth there. Apparently. The Wizards worked out free agent Martell Webster and he could sign with them, reports Michael Lee of the Washington Post. Or, they could add one of the other veterans they are considering.…

    Right after capturing gold in London, LeBron James suggested this could be it for him and the Olympics. He didn’t know if he would keep going. But after thinking about it for a week, he sounds like he’s in. LeBron was back in Akron doing charity events last weekend and spoke with the Associated Press:…

    Last season was the summer of the Pro-Am leagues like the Drew League — with the NBA locked out the stars flocked to play there and so did our eyes. This summer our eyes have been back at the Vegas Summer League and London. But the Drew League was still going on in Los Angeles…
