  2. Mark Cuban says Mavericks are ‘in a better spot’ now than if they signed Dwight Howard

    Jul 18, 2013, 3:11 PM EDT

    Mark Cuban

    The Mavericks were one of five teams Dwight Howard met with during his free agent tour, but for whatever reason, they were eliminated from contention fairly early in the process. Now that Howard is with Houston, and Dallas has been forced to fill in its roster with many smaller pieces that may or may not…

  3. Report: Mavericks reach agreement with Samuel Dalembert

    Jul 17, 2013, 8:53 PM EDT

    Samuel Dalembert

    The Dallas Mavericks have some shooters on the roster — Dirk Nowitzki, Monta Ellis, Vince Carter. They got Jose Calderon to set those guys up. What they didn’t have was a real defender in the paint — but they have solved that problem. Or at least tried to solve it. The Mavericks have reached a…

    Brandon Jennings

    Free agency has been open for more than two weeks now and most of the big names are gone, not just Dwight Howard but also guys like Andrew Bynum, Mike Dunleavy, Al Jefferson, Andrei Kirilenko, Quentin Richardson, Nick young and more. But there are a few name guys left on the market. Guys with flaws…

    Pacers Hawks basketball

    The Mavericks and Devin Harris had agreed upon a three-year deal in the neighborhood of $9 million that would return the guard to the team that traded him away in the deal that brought Jason Kidd to Dallas back in 2008.

    Jul 10, 2013, 9:16 PM EDT

    Samuel Dalembert

    Wednesday began with such promise in Dallas, but ultimately ended in some level of disappointment. The Mavericks began the day meeting with free agent big man Andrew Bynum.

    Miami Heat President Riley reacts after he was introduced during a celebration at the American Airlines Arena after the Heat's NBA Basketball Championship parade in Miami

    Yes, there are questions about Dwyane Wade and if his game is in decline (and how fast he is going down that hill). Yes, there are questions about Chris Bosh’s role within the offense and his value to the team, particularly relative to the big checks he cashes. But don’t think the Pat Riley is…

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game 7

    Odds makers already have the Miami Heat as the favorites to win the NBA championship again next year — 2-1 odds at Bovada online. But if the Heat thought this title run was like climbing Mount Everest, wait until next year. The Bulls get Derrick Rose back. The Pacers are not going to get any…

  10. Bucks’ Dalembert says he might switch sides to play for Heat next season

    Apr 22, 2013, 9:49 AM EDT

    Pau Gasol, Samuel Dalembert

    Pretty much every NBA player about to be a free agent talks in vague terms about keeping their options open. They are going to go where the most money comes from and they don’t want to limit those choices. But have you ever heard a player on one side of a playoff series say he…

  11. Bucks suspend Samuel Dalembert for one game

    Feb 26, 2013, 5:16 PM EDT

    Samuel Dalembert

    Samuel Dalembert — the Bucks backup big man who drew some interest at the trade deadline but not enough for Milwaukee to move him — has been suspended by the team for one game, the team announced. He will sit out Tuesday night when the Bucks face the Mavericks. The reason is the popular and…

    San Antonio Spurs v Atlanta Hawks

    The Milwaukee Bucks have the potential to be one of the biggest players at the trade deadline. They have one of the league’s best shooters on an affordable deal in Mike Dunleavy.

    Miami Heat v Oklahoma City Thunder

    Finally, here are the delayed regular Monday PBT NBA power rankings. We said this a lot during the NBA finals last year — if we see the Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder face off in three of the next five NBA finals it shouldn’t be a shock. This season looks more and more like…

    After a month where Samuel Dalembert was all but out of the Bucks rotation, he has played more than 20 minutes in three of the team’s last five games.

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while watching a toddler drain trick shot after trick shot… Lakers 92, Nets 83: Up until this game I was still sure the Lakers were not a playoff team, that the recent streak would not be enough for the hole they dug. But…

    Atlanta Hawks' Korver guards Indiana Pacers' George during their NBA basketball game in Indianapolis

    There’s nothing quite like the phenomenon of watching a young player ascend to stardom. When a young player bursts on to the scene and starts making extraordinary plays routine, he captures our imagination. How good could 22-year-old Paul George be? Who does he remind us of?

    Jan 13, 2013, 3:29 PM EDT

    Brandon Jennings, Tiago Splitter

    Milwaukee Bucks management has some big-picture questions to answer going forward: What kind of team are they trying to build? Who best to coach that style of team? What players on the roster fit that system? Which need to be traded? Just know that whatever trades are coming down around the deadline, Brandon Jennings will…

    Samuel Dalembert

    Samuel Dalembert, not exactly known for his prowess at the offensive end of the court, but this is a pretty sweet dish to the cutting Monta Ellis for the Bucks. As for the Heat defense on this play… well, we’ve discussed the Heat defense this season. They get a pass as champions… for a while.…

    Kevin McHale, Jeremy Lin

    Last Season: Riding a deep roster and the creativity of a coaching staff and front office to cover up their weaknesses with in-season trades, the Rockets were in the playoff hunt into the season’s final days only to fall short and finish 9th in the West. They battled injury, illness, and the transition to new…

    Breakups are never fun, but sometimes it just has to be done. Maybe there’s someone new, or things have become stale, or both parties just need to go a different direction. The following is a list of five talented players who could really use the “it’s not you, it’s me” speech from their current teams.…

    Milwaukee Bucks' Ersan Ilyasova   goes up for a shot against Toronto Raptors' Alan Anderson during the second half of their NBA basketball game in Milwaukee Wisconsin

    Last season: Abort the mission! New plan! New plan! The Bucks slammed on the parking brake, wrenched the wheel and Tokyo Drifted in a new direction last season, abandoning the “all defense all the time” team built around Andrew Bogut and giving p on the fleeting hope Bogut will ever, ever be healthy. They swapped…
