Samardo Samuels

  1. Wayns out in Philly; Sloan in for Hornets; deadline pushes lots of end of bench moves

    Jan 7, 2013, 11:48 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Dallas Mavericks

    We’ve already seen some, and in the next 24 hours your are going to see a lot more moves of guys who have barely gotten any run — then you are going to start to see 10-day contract guys fill their place on the bench. The deal is that by today at 5 p.m. (Eastern),…

  2. Cavaliers down another big man as Varejao’s knee swells up

    Nov 7, 2012, 11:30 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Milwaukee Bucks

    Anderson Varejao has been fantastic this young season for Cleveland — 14 points a game on 65.8 percent shooting, plus 15 rebounds a game. He has grabbed 25 percent of the available rebounds when he has been on the floor the first four games (that is Dennis Rodman like). He has been playing like an…

    LAS VEGAS — There are a lot of players in Las Vegas this week that nearly nobody recognizes due to the hodgepodge that is NBA Summer League. There’s a power forward on the Cleveland Cavaliers that is unrecognizable for other reasons, however, as Samardo Samuels has undergone a complete body overhaul compared to how he…

  4. Damian Lillard continues to impress at NBA Summer League

    LAS VEGAS — Seven days in Las Vegas is a long time regardless of the occasion, but there are times that it has seemed particularly long this week as four games in a gym watching fringe NBA players play basketball can surprisingly take its toll on a guy. There are always a few moments that…

  5. Josh Selby shows he’s closer to reaching potential at NBA Summer League

    LAS VEGAS — Josh Selby earned a vote for the NBA’s All-Rookie Third Team this past that many in the media felt wasn’t deserved. While that may have been the case, there’s a good chance he cemented himself a spot on the All-Summer League roster following Monday evening’s performance at the Cox Pavilion in lovely…

  6. Baseline to Baseline recaps: ‘Melo is off but Knicks aren’t

    Jan 25, 2012, 3:16 AM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire, Tyrus Thomas

    What you missed while calling 911 asking to fight a cop…. Raptors 99, Suns 96: The biggest upset of the night was our game of the night. Knicks 111, Bobcats 78: Carmelo Anthony wondered if he shot too much after the Knicks loss to the Nuggets, then he sat down with Amar’e Stoudemire and talked…

  7. Thursdays And-1 links, where Lakers fans are just wrong

    Jan 5, 2012, 10:52 AM EDT

    Andrew Bynum

    Welcome to our morning look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT). In this poll, 56 percent of Lakers fans would rather have Andrew Bynum as their starting center over Dwight Howard. Those fans are fools. I’m…

  8. Baseline to baseline recaps: Celtics fall, Knicks fall, Heat almost join them

    Dec 29, 2011, 9:39 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v New Orleans Hornets

    What you missed while worried about what a bad year this was for elephants… Oklahoma City 98, Memphis 95: This playoff rematch was our game of the night. New Orleans 97, Celtics 78: Don’t hit the panic button yet, Celtics fans. Still too early. But if you want to feel uncomfortable and a little ill,…

  9. Kyrie Irving, Brandon Knight shine in preseason game which actually doesn’t tell us anything

    Dec 17, 2011, 5:30 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Detroit Pistons

    You’re probably reading that headline and wondering what the point of the post is. The point is that after a seven month layoff from organized basketball, Friday was the first time we’ve seen Kyrie Irving and Brandon Knight play at the NBA level. As both players will have a huge impact on the directions of…

  10. Add Samardo Samuels to list of guys frustrated with union

    Nov 15, 2011, 2:44 PM EDT

    SAMUELS_SAMARDO

    There are plenty of NBA players grumbling about the NBPA’s move to file a disclaimer of interest and move the lockout to the courts. But only a few are willing to make those concerns public. There are a few out there, and you can add Cavaliers forward Samardo Samuels to that list, as he told…

  11. Lakers’ Devin Ebanks among three sent to D-League around NBA today

    Dec 27, 2010, 5:38 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Regal FC Barcelona

    The trend of NBA teams using the D-League like a real minor league — which it is but wasn’t really used like it — continues with three more NBA players under rookie contracts being sent down for seasoning Monday. The biggest name is Devin Ebanks, the Lakers second-round pick who has played in 12 games…

  12. Samardo Samuels signed by Cleveland Cavaliers

    Aug 17, 2010, 9:53 AM EDT

    Samardo Samuels presents one of those draft conundrums. He’s a guy you really question on a paper — an undersized post player at 6’8″ who is not explosive, plays below the rim and showed no real midrange game in college at Louisville. Yet he can just play. He was a fairly efficient inside scorer in…

  13. NBA Draft: PBT's second rounders to watch

    Jun 24, 2010, 1:56 PM EDT

    Michael Redd. Carlos Boozer. Gilbert Arenas. Dennis Rodman. Manu Ginobili. Guys fall through to the second round that can ball. Guys like those above. History tells us most of the guys drafted in the second round Thursday will get a shot in the NBA, only 10 or so will stick, but one or two will…

  14. NBA Draft, Meet Your Steal: Samardo Samuels is undersized like a fox

    Jun 1, 2010, 9:10 PM EDT

    Let’s play a game. Imaginea team with a late first round pick that can afford to take a gamble. It’s either blessed with a playoff ready roster with the luxury of long-term development, or a bottom feeder with multiple picks, having already scored its marquee prize. As the selection moves closer, the team starts to…
