  1. Hedo Turkoglu impresses Doc Rivers in workout for Clippers

    Jan 11, 2014, 3:30 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Atlanta Hawks - Game Three

    Hedo Turkoglu wasn’t a part of the futre in Orlando, and as a result, the Magic let him know that before the season began and allowed him to remain away from the team until he was either dealt or waived. When no one was willing to offer anything in trade for Turkoglu, the Magic decided…

  2. Andrew Bynum, Stephen Jackson top list of players waived Tuesday

    Jan 7, 2014, 4:23 PM EST

    Bynum Cavaliers

    Today was essentially cut-down day in the NBA. Any player on the roster come Jan. 10 has his contract guaranteed for the full season (even if he is let go), and as it takes 48 hours to clear waivers players have to be let go of Tuesday (5 ET) to make that deadline. There were…

  3. Report: Clippers considering adding Hedo Turkoglu, Sasha Vujacic

    Jan 7, 2014, 12:10 PM EST

    Sasha Vujacic

    For one night Monday, the Clippers’ offense looked just fine without Chris Paul. Unfortunately, the Clippers don’t get to play a disinterested and dispirited Orlando Magic team every night. With CP3 out, the Clippers need more guys who can create shots. Which is why the Clippers are thinking of making a roster change and bringing…

  4. Spurs will rest Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili in nationally televised game, Tony Parker also out

    Dec 19, 2013, 4:32 PM EST

    Manu Ginobili, Tim Duncan, Tony Parker

    Gregg Popovich is making a habit of tempting fate. First, he confronted Stephen Jackson. Even if that was done in a joking manner – and it was – you can never be certain how Jackson will react. Now, the Spurs coach is challenging another one of the NBA’s most strong-willed figures: David Stern. Both Tim…

  5. Gregg Popovich yanks off Stephen Jackson’s headband

    Dec 18, 2013, 9:30 AM EST

    Detroit Pistons v San Antonio Spurs

    The Spurs released Stephen Jackson just before last season’s playoffs, reportedly, because Jackson had been feuding with Gregg Popovich. Jackson could have been bitter, but he wasn’t. Even as San Antonio made the NBA Finals, he said, “I wouldn’t want me on the team, either.” If nothing else, Jackson  tells it like it is. If…

  6. Tracy McGrady signs with San Antonio Spurs for playoffs

    Apr 16, 2013, 5:04 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Atlanta Hawks

    Tracy McGrady is back in the NBA. A couple days after the Spurs cut loose veteran swingman Stephen Jackson, they have turned around and signed McGrady to a deal and he will join the team for its playoff run, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. McGrady played this season and China and has been cleared…

  7. Solomon Jones: Knicks starter by night, free-agent-to-be by day

    Apr 15, 2013, 1:55 PM EST

    Iman Shumpert, Raymond Felton, Carmelo Anthony, Solomon Jones

    The Knicks started Solomon Jones yesterday. Today, they waived him. Jones played just two game with New York, but he will go down in Knicks history, according to Adam Reisinger: Solomon Jones finishes his stint in NY with the worst PER in Knicks history (minimum 15 minutes played): -5.7 Why would the Knicks do this?…

  8. In surprise move, Spurs waive Stephen Jackson

    Apr 12, 2013, 5:39 PM EST

    Stephen Jackson

    In a move nobody saw coming, the San Antonio Spurs have waived Stephen Jackson — a regular part of their rotation who has been out with a sprained ankle. Art Garcia of NBA.com was first with the story. Because he was waived after March 1, Jackson cannot be picked up by another team and put…

  9. Spurs sure look like contenders in 12-point win over Thunder

    Mar 12, 2013, 12:21 AM EST

    Tim Duncan

    There are two, slightly contradictory take aways from this game: 1) There are a lot of people that watched the Spurs look great in the regular season the last couple years but then look very beatable in the playoffs who think this Spurs team is like those. But there is a key difference — this…

  10. Some Spurs don’t like In-n-Out Burgers, lose a little of my respect

    Feb 25, 2013, 11:30 AM EST

    in-n-out

    There are certain things that are sacred to Los Angeles natives like myself. The Hollywood Bowl, for one. The Griffith Observatory. And In-n-Out burgers. That’s true of pretty much the entire West Coast. Don’t mess with those burgers. But a couple of Spurs did — they didn’t like them. And now, sadly, I’ve lost a…

  11. Wednesday And-1 links: Trade deadline talk (and some Barkley)

    Here is our regular 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) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points. Today we have lots of smaller trade rumors and reports that we just haven’t…

  12. Report: Spurs have interest in trade for Josh Smith

    Feb 12, 2013, 7:22 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Atlanta Hawks

    The San Antonio Spurs are clearly in the market for another big man — they realize if they are going to go up against the Thunder, Clippers and Grizzlies in the playoffs an improved front line will be key. First came the report they were interested in Utah’s Al Jefferson, which makes some sense for…

  14. Tony Parker out injured vs. Bulls; joins Ginobili, Duncan on bench

    Feb 11, 2013, 8:02 PM EST

    Parker of the Spurs competes in the skills competition during the NBA All-Star weekend in Orlando, Florida

    Last time Gregg Popovich sat Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili all for one game the league slapped a $250,000 fine on the Spurs. That was for a nationally televised game against the Heat where the three were healthy but needed rest. All three will be out again Monday night when the Spurs take…

  15. Report: Spurs frontrunners to trade for Al Jefferson

    Feb 6, 2013, 3:28 PM EST

    Al Jefferson

    It is widely expected the Utah Jazz are going to trade one of their two big men before the trade deadline — Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap are both in the last year of their contracts and they are not both coming back. The Spurs are in the lead to land Jefferson, reports long-time hoops…

  16. After Shannon Brown’s flagrant on Ginobili, Stephen Jackson says he would have knocked out anyone else

    Jan 27, 2013, 1:00 PM EST

    Stephen Jackson

    Late in the third quarter of the Spurs’ win over the Suns on Saturday, Shannon Brown was called for a flagrant-two foul when he caught no ball and all Manu Ginobili on an attempt to block his opponent’s shot from behind. The play looked (and sounded) worse than it actually was, but considering the loud…

    Memphis Grizzlies v Phoenix Suns

    The Extra Pass is a new daily column that’s designed to give you a better look at a theme, team, player or scheme.

  18. UPDATE: Manu Ginobili out 10-14 days with strained hamstring

    Jan 14, 2013, 1:05 PM EST

    Manu Ginobili

    It’s not a regular season without a Manu Ginobili injury. He tweaked his left hamstring with just a minute to go before halftime of the Spurs win on Sunday night. He did not return for the second half. You had a feeling with Ginobili’s age (35) and injury history he would be out a little…

  19. Tony Parker three forces overtime against Grizzlies (VIDEO)

    Jan 12, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Tony Parker, Gregg Popovich, Manu Ginobili

    The Memphis Grizzlies were up four with 12 seconds to go when Rudy Gay missed two free throws and left the door just a little open. San Antonio came down and Stephen Jackson hit a three. Memphis inbounded and Zach Randolph was fouled and hit two free throws with three seconds left to put the…

  20. Steve Nash is your new all-time free throw percentage leader

    Jan 10, 2013, 10:23 AM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Houston Rockets

    Steve Nash only got to the free throw line twice on Wednesday night during the Lakers fifth straight loss. As you expect, he hit both. With that he moved a little farther ahead of Mark Price as the NBA’ all-time free throw shooting percentage leader, notes Kevin Ding of the Orange County Register. Nash entered…

  21. Spurs avoid total meltdown, hand Lakers their 5th straight loss

    Jan 10, 2013, 12:27 AM EST

    Tony Parker, Gregg Popovich, Manu Ginobili

    In what’s been a familiar site lately, the Lakers lost a game on Wednesday night, this time to the Spurs 108-105. The loss drops them to 15-20 on the season and represents another shovel of dirt on their playoff chances in what’s been their most disappointing season…maybe ever. The win gave the Spurs their 15th…

    Mayor Bloomberg Announces Google's Plan To Provide Free Wifi To Chelsea Neighborhood

    And all this time we had been blaming some poor waitress just trying to do her job. San Antonio’s Stephen Jackson returned to the court Monday night after missing a game with a sprained ankle. An injury he got last Thursday reportedly when colliding with a waitress kneeling courtside at the Knicks game to give…

  23. Popovich calls for league to crack down on sideline activity after injury to Stephen Jackson

    Jan 6, 2013, 4:00 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v New York Knicks

    Stephen Jackson suffered an injury in Thursday night’s loss to the Knicks that was completely avoidable. And Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich, as you might imagine, was none too pleased. Late in the first quarter after taking a three-point attempt from the corner, Jackson’s momentum carries him slowly backward and out of bounds. A waitress…
