  1. Report: NBA executive watched Kings scout Jimmer Fredette, believes they were chasing ‘the next great white American player’

    Mar 5, 2014, 9:33 AM EDT

    Jimmer Fredette

    When the Sacramento Kings drafted Jimmer Fredette in 2011, they didn’t exactly hide their intentions. As Aaron Bruski wrote here: Jimmer Fredette, the most talked about player in this year’s NBA draft, was selected No. 10 overall by the Sacramento Kings on Thursday. 30 minutes later, the Kings had a splash page with his likeness…

  2. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Miami putting its foot down on the gas

    Mar 3, 2014, 3:43 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks

    The PBT power rankings have returned with not a lot of change from last week — Miami, Indiana, San Antonio and Oklahoma City are the top four (in whatever order you wish) then there is a gap to the Clippers, Rockets and teams trying to knock on that door. Meanwhile the Sixers look like they…

  3. Sunday night NBA grades: Tony Parker is back and looks good

    Mar 3, 2014, 2:12 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v San Antonio Spurs

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while thinking “I really should see that movie”…. Tony Parker, San Antonio Spurs. In case you forgot, he’s really good at basketball. He wasn’t really getting going in transition yet, but he was dominant in the half court, scoring 10 of the first 17 Spurs…

  4. PBT Podcast: Your twitter questions get us talking Clippers’ moves, Knicks’ future

    Mar 1, 2014, 12:30 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Clippers

    We’re back with the latest PBT Podcast and today you set the topics — myself and  Eytan Shander of NBC Sports Radio discuss your twitter questions. First up we discuss the Clippers moves at the buyout deadline — I think getting Glen Davis is huge, Danny Granger on the other hand is not better than Jared…

  5. Report: Jimmer Fredette will sign with Bulls when he clears waivers

    Mar 1, 2014, 9:29 AM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Los Angeles Lakers

    We told you a couple days ago this was likely coming. Apparently it is now all but official. When Jimmer Fredette clears waivers at 5 p.m. Sunday he will sign with the Chicago Bulls he has told team management, reports Sam Amick of USA Today. Fredette spent three seasons with the Kings but never found…

  6. Report: Jimmer Fredette “strongly leaning” toward Bulls

    Feb 27, 2014, 10:05 PM EDT

    Jimmer Fredette

    Jimmer Fredette can shoot the ball. The Chicago Bulls could use some guys to bring them points. It looks like the two sides will get together. Fredette was officially bought out by the Kings and waived on Thursday. When he clears waivers this weekend it looks like he is heading to the Windy City. First,…

  7. It’s official: Kings reach buyout with Jimmer Fredette

    Feb 27, 2014, 6:24 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Los Angeles Lakers

    Jimmer Fredette is going to get his freedom. He’s getting another chance in a new market to prove he belongs in an NBA rotation. Unable to win over the three coaches he had in Sacramento, the Kings announced Thursday they had reached a buyout deal with Fredette. He has to still clear waivers but once…

  8. League suspends Kings’ Cousins one game for punch, fines him $20,000 for abuse of officials

    Feb 27, 2014, 3:50 PM EDT

    Houston at Sacramento

    The NBA League office just gave DeMarcus Cousins his own punch to the gut. The league suspended him one game for a punch to the stomach of Patrick Beverley in the Rocket’s easy win Tuesday night over Sacramento. Cousins will sit out Friday night against the Los Angeles Lakers (a battle for the worst in…

  9. Report: Bulls and Cavaliers interested in Jimmer Fredette

    Feb 27, 2014, 2:31 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Sacramento Kings

    Jimmer Fredette, who will soon be bought out by the Sacramento Kings, doesn’t run an offense well, and he’s too small to play shooting guard regularly – though he defends both backcourt positions poorly, anyway. There’s a reason the Kings didn’t pick up the fourth-year option on his rookie contract and are buying him out…

  10. Extra Pass: Cleveland Cavaliers built playoff-caliber team, but that won’t mean enough

    Feb 27, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Luol Deng, Kevin Durant

    The Cleveland Cavaliers are a playoff-caliber team that is extremely unlikely to make the playoffs. With a 114-104 win Wednesday, the Cavaliers extended Oklahoma City Thunder’s losing streak to a season-high three games. Unlike the previous two teams to defeat the Thunder, the Miami Heat and Los Angeles Clippers, Cleveland is fancied by nobody as a…

  11. Report: Memphis Grizzlies claim Beno Udrih off waivers

    Feb 26, 2014, 7:04 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Dallas Mavericks

    The New York Knicks agreed to buyout and waive point guard Beno Udrih after they couldn’t trade him at the deadline. Because why would you need extra depth with the rock solid Raymond Felton as your starting point guard? The Memphis Grizzlies have claimed Udrih off waivers, reports Marc Stein at ESPN. Sources told ESPN.com…

  12. DeMarcus Cousins ejected after getting in face of referee (VIDEO)

    Feb 26, 2014, 8:44 AM EDT

    Houston at Sacramento

    It was a frustrating night for DeMarcus Cousins and the Kings — from the opening tip the Houston Rockets  petty much did whatever they wanted. Houston led by 25 in the first quarter and never looked back — and in the third quarter that frustration bubbled over. Cousins had just gotten called for a foul…

  13. Tuesday night NBA grades: DeMar DeRozan is the Raptors go to guy

    Feb 26, 2014, 2:32 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Cleveland Cavaliers

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while wishing you had watched the Winter Olympics in a snow fort…  DeMar DeRozan, Toronto Raptors. He is the guy the Raptors go to in the fourth and what’s different than the Rudy Gay era is how he gets his points — it’s not isolations.…

  14. Report: Kings near buyout with Jimmer Fredette

    Feb 25, 2014, 10:28 AM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Los Angeles Lakers

    Jimmer Fredette has never quite found his role in Sacramento, now they are going to set him free and let him find his way with another team. After trying unsuccessfully to trade Fredette for a second round pick at the trade deadline, the Kings are close to a buyout agreement with the third year NBA…

  15. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Heat on the top, Sixers fall to very bottom

    Feb 24, 2014, 2:49 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors vs Miami Heat

    We have a new team at the top and the bottom of PBT’s weekly NBA Power Rankings. Miami’s defense is back and propelled them to a couple wins that have them back on top of the chart. It has taken some sustained losing — a real effort — on the part of a Sixers team…

  16. Sunday night NBA grades: Jason Collins takes the court, Jamal Crawford owns his

    Feb 24, 2014, 2:19 AM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Los Angeles Lakers

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while getting sucked into the “Reality Bites” power rankings…  Jason Collins, Brooklyn Nets. He was brought in to Brooklyn because he has a skill set they need — he can defend the post, he can rebound, and he sets a mean pick (Collins said after…

  17. No buyout for Jason Terry, but he won’t join Kings this season

    Feb 22, 2014, 3:00 PM EDT

    Newly acquired Brooklyn Net's NBA player Jason Terry smiles as he is introduced to the media during a news conference in Brooklyn

    Jason Terry was traded to the Kings as part of the deadline day deal that also saw the Nets send Reggie Evans to Sacramento in exchange for Marcus Thornton. A veteran like Terry doesn’t exactly fit into the rebuilding Kings’ plans, and his inclusion in the package for Thornton was strictly a salary cap-related issue.…

  18. The Extra Pass: What’s behind the slow trade deadline

    Feb 21, 2014, 8:06 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Boston Celtics

    That makes two years in a row. There was more activity at the 2014 NBA trade deadline than in 2013 (25 players got moved this year), but once again the deadline was about shifting around bench players and cap space, there were no difference makers moved. Of the 25 players who changed teams at this…

  19. Trade Deadline Winners/Losers: It’s a good day to be a Pacers fan

    Feb 20, 2014, 9:24 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Boston Celtics

    It was the day of the role player. There was a fair amount of action at the NBA’s trade deadline but none of it involved the big names that floated around a little — no Rajon Rondo or Pau Gasol, and Kevin Love was never in play. Still, some teams made smart moves, and some…

  20. NBA Trade Deadline Tracker: All the trades, rumors, analysis, fun in one place

    Feb 20, 2014, 3:00 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Brooklyn Nets

    It’s the one day on the NBA calendar you know is going to be like a roller coaster — rumors are going to fly, deals are going to appear close then fall apart, complete fabrications will fascinate a fan base who will then blame a GM for not making them reality, and in the end…

  21. Report: Nets agreed to deal to get Marcus Thornton from Kings; Nets near adding Hill from Lakers

    Feb 19, 2014, 2:25 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Sacramento Kings

    We passed along the report this trade was being discussed yesterday. Apparently it’s about to be much more than discussed, and with that the Nets continue to laugh at the NBA’s new, stiffer luxury tax. The Nets and Kings have agreed in principle to a trade that would send Marcus Thornton to the Nets in…

  22. Kings’ GM denies that Ben McLemore has been part of trade talks

    Feb 19, 2014, 12:35 PM EDT

    NBA All-Star Portraits 2014

    Ben McLemore is part of the Kings future and general manager Pete D’Alessandro wants you to know that. In no uncertain terms. McLemore’s name popped in a trade rumor where he was part of a package suggested for Boston’s Rajon Rondo, but the deal died because Sacramento knows there is little chance (if any) Rondo…

  23. The Extra Pass: Five teams to watch closely as the trade deadline nears

    Feb 19, 2014, 7:59 AM EDT

    Kenneth Faried

    With just more than 48 hours left until the NBA’s trade deadline, it feels like the biggest deals may be behind us — Rudy Gay and Luol Deng have already been moved. Rumors are swirling, but the feeling around the league is it is all a lot of sound and fury signifying nothing. Still there…

  24. Report: Trying to sell high, Kings make Isaiah Thomas available in trades

    Feb 18, 2014, 7:16 PM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v Golden State Warriors

    Kings fans love Isaiah Thomas and with good reason. We can all relate to the undersized guy picked dead last (60th) in the draft who has sliced his way to an impressive NBA season — 20.2 points and 6.3 assists a night, with a true shooting percentage of 56.8. He’s great at taking angles off…

  25. Report: Kings, Nets talking Marcus Thornton for Jason Terry, Reggie Evans

    Feb 18, 2014, 4:48 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Brooklyn Nets

    The new Sacramento Kings ownership and front office is aggressive. The Brooklyn Nets remain looking for players that can help them win now. Which leads to this interesting trade rumor courtesy Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports: The Sacramento Kings are engaged in discussions to send guard Marcus Thornton to the Brooklyn Nets for guard Jason…
