trade deadline

  1. No surprise, the Wizards are open for firesale business. Everything but Wall must go.

    Mar 10, 2012, 9:00 AM EST

    Washington Wizards v Atlanta Hawks

    That the Wizards are terrible should not surprise you. A terrible team looking to change its personnel should not surprise you. But when any team declares itself completely open for business outside of one player, yeah, that’s worth at least a look. From the Washington Post’s Michael Lee:   Source just told me #wizards have…

  2. Report: Jazz “open” to trading Devin Harris

    Feb 28, 2012, 6:45 PM EST

    Brian T. Smith of the Salt Lake City Tribune has the report: The Jazz remain open to moving starting point guard Devin Harris, league sources said, and reserve small forward C.J. Miles could be made available in the right situation. But Utah continues to take a long-term approach in building its team after the Deron…

  3. Don’t expect Dallas to make a trade deadline deal. Unless…

    Feb 23, 2012, 9:28 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Two

    The defending NBA champions started slow — we’ll call it a championship/lockout hangover — but have found their footing of late. Despite all the roster changes this summer they look good — Dirk Nowitzki is healthy again and their offense is clicking. But the Mavs don’t as good as Oklahoma City in the West. Or…

  4. Are NBA trades as much about relationships as players?

    Mar 15, 2011, 4:54 PM EST

    Carmelo Anthony James Dolan

    Last month you pulled up the old trade machine and found a way for your team to finally move that bloated contract that’s an anchor on your rebuilding efforts and move him a team that could actually use him. A win-win. It’s brilliant. Why isn’t your GM talking about this deal with the other team’s…

  5. Well, that’s awkward — O.J. Mayo stays with Memphis

    Feb 25, 2011, 1:25 PM EST

    Memphis Grizzlies v Phoenix Suns

    Hey, we traded you to Indiana as part of a… hold on a sec….. oh, never mind. It has to be a little weird for O.J. Mayo. It’s one thing to hear your name circulated in trade rumors for months, it’s another to hear about a done deal and have the owner telling the Commercial…

  6. Poll: What team helped itself the most with trades?

    Feb 25, 2011, 9:42 AM EST

    Milwaukee Bucks v New York Knicks

    For weeks leading up, everyone we talked to was telling us it was going to be a quiet trade deadline. The new CBA coming, the bottleneck caused by the Carmelo Anthony deal, there were a bunch of reasons nothing much was going to happen. Then BOOM! With the force of a Blake Griffin dunk the…

  7. Hawks trade for Kirk Hinrich

    Feb 23, 2011, 7:48 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Washington Wizards

    Multiple sources are reporting that the Atlanta Hawks have agreed to trade Mike Bibby, Mo Evans, rookie Jordan Crawford, and a #1 pick to the Washington Wizards in exchange for Kirk Hinrich and Hilton Armstrong. This deal fills an obvious need for the Hawks. Mike Bibby is still a sharpshooter, but he has contributed in…

  8. Toronto trades first-round pick for James Johnson

    Feb 22, 2011, 6:56 PM EST

    James Johnson

    According to Ric Bucher and Nick Fridell of ESPN, the Toronto Raptors have acquired Chicago Bulls forward James Johnson in exchange for the Miami Heat’s 2011 first-round pick, which the Raptors owned. On the surface, this trade looks like a huge win for the Bulls. James Johnson is young and athletic, but he can’t shoot,…

  9. Report: Bobcats actively shopping Gerald Wallace, Stephen Jackson

    Feb 21, 2011, 4:36 PM EST

    Houston Rockets v Charlotte Bobcats

    Well, someone is going to get traded besides Carmelo Anthony. We swear. If the Bobcats have their way one of their two best players — Stephen Jackson or Gerald Wallace — will be one of the people getting moved, according to a tweet from Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo. Charlotte’s active in talks to move Gerald…

  10. If Melo goes to Knicks, Nuggets and Nets may do deal anyway

    Feb 21, 2011, 1:42 PM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors

    With all the talking the Nets and Nuggets have done in the last few months, it seems only just that they should do some kind of trade anyway. According to ESPN’s Chris Broussard (via twitter), the two sides would make a deal using the Knicks assets in a separate deal. Sources say NJ in talks…

  11. Report: Carmelo Anthony to give final answer to Nets Monday

    Feb 21, 2011, 10:39 AM EST

    New York Knicks v Denver Nuggets

    More than seven months after the whole drama started, Carmelo Anthony is going to finally make a decision Monday. He is finally going to inform the Nets whether or not he would sign an extension with them, according to the New York Post. If Anthony will sign the three-year, $65 million extension with New Jersey…

  12. Nuggets and Nets reportedly agree on deal, leaving Anthony to determine his own fate

    Feb 18, 2011, 1:01 PM EST

    Anthony_dunk

    At long last, a deal is reportedly in place which would make Carmelo Anthony a Net…if he so chooses. According to Fred Kerber of the New York Post, New Jersey and Denver have agreed to terms on a deal that would bring the Anthony trade saga to its overdue conclusion. However, as has been the…

  13. Ramon Sessions draws interest from Knicks, Hawks, Blazers

    Feb 17, 2011, 4:26 PM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers  v Miami Heat

    We’re members of the Ramon Sessions fan club. He’s not going to make you forget about Chris Paul, but he’s a quality point guard who plays within himself. He’s quick (clearly a lot quicker than Derek Fisher and Steve Blake after dropping 32 on the Lakers Wednesday), he’s good in transition and impressive on the…

  14. Bulls looking at two guard help, but chemistry trumps all

    Feb 16, 2011, 4:53 PM EST

    J.R. Smith

    The Bulls are happy with themselves just the way they are, in a Stuart Smalley kind of way — they’re good enough, they’re smart enough, and doggone it, people like them. Sure, they could use an upgrade at the two, they know that, but they are not about to make a move that could damage…

  15. Five trades we’d like to see (and we’re not talking ‘Melodrama)

    Feb 16, 2011, 2:57 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Phoenix Suns

    It’s been quiet. Too quiet. Serious trade chatter is down around the league. People are talking but there is less meaningful dialogue going on than in an Adam Sandler movie. Maybe it’s fear of the new CBA. Maybe it’s Carmelo Anthony creating a bottleneck. Maybe people are too busy playing Angry Birds. Well, we are…

  16. Nets GM King thinks Troy Murphy will be moved

    Feb 15, 2011, 6:31 PM EST

    Troy_Murphy

    Recently, Nets GM Billy King spoke to the YES Network’s Jessica Taff, and confirmed that the Nets are aggressively shopping Troy Murphy, and confident that they will be able to trade him before the deadline: “Obviously, you know, I’m very focused on Troy. I feel bad for Troy in this situation, but I think something…

  17. Where is all the trade chatter?

    Feb 14, 2011, 12:20 PM EST

    Denver Nuggets v Utah Jazz, Game 6

    It’s 10 days until the NBA trade deadline, and usually right now the chatter among NBA teams about potential deals is ramping up to a huge wave fans everywhere just try to ride. This season, it’s a ripple in a pond. Mark Cuban said this is a pretty standard year. “Relative to other years in…

  18. Mark Cuban talks about the trade deadline and executives waiting too long

    Feb 13, 2011, 2:00 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Denver Nuggets

    You’ll start to notice a pattern, eventually. In the month leading up to the trade deadline, there will be a lot of talk about two possible eventualities. A. “This trade deadline looks to be the most active in years, with several teams shopping star players!” Or… B. “This trade deadline looks unusually slow and I…

  19. Carmelo Anthony talks Nets, says he told them nothing

    Jan 20, 2011, 2:09 AM EST

    Carmelo Anthony dunk

    When reporters descended on him postgame, Carmelo Anthony still hadn’t seen the press conference where  Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov pulled the plug on trade discussions that would have sent Anthony to New Jersey. (It’s understandable, Anthony had been a tad busy dropping 35 on the Thunder in a Nugget win). Still his post-game comments sounded…

  20. Erik Spoelstra says Heat don’t need to make trades

    Jan 12, 2011, 12:52 PM EST

    Miami Heat v New Orleans Hornets

    It’s the time of year when a young fan’s fancy turns to trades… but coach Erik Spoelstra says Heat fans shouldn’t bother. Sounding like a guy whose team has won 21 of 22, Spoelstra said the Heat don’t need to make any trades right now, according to Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel. “(Pat Riley)…

  21. Rondo's not exactly thrilled about the Krypto-Nate infusion

    Feb 20, 2010, 10:39 AM EST

    Turns out Deron Williams isn’t the only player who wasn’t a fan of his team’s deadline moves. Rajon Rondo expressed some uncertainty about moving veteran Eddie House for Nate Robinson, in an article for NBA.com. Courtesy of Bryan Chu: “I don’t know, I don’t know,” said Rondo on whether the team needed to make a…

  22. Trade Deadline: Bobcats talking to Pacers for D.J. Augustine-T.J. Ford swap

    Feb 18, 2010, 2:36 PM EST

    UPDATE 2:03PM: Chad Ford reporting the deal broke down, no go. Guess Augustine will have to continue the rest of the season with that startling vote of confidence. UPDATE 1:43PM: The deal is close but not yet done, and includes Nazr Mohammed and Gerald Henderson going to Indiana, and Brandon Rush going to Charlotte. The…

  23. Salmons still going to Bucks, but now it's for Warrick and Alexander

    Feb 18, 2010, 10:53 AM EST

    We told you earlier that the Bucks and Bulls had worked out a trade to send John Salmons to Milwaukee for Francisco Elson and Kurt Thomas, then let you know the Bulls were in flux about whether it would be Thomas or Hakim Warrick. Now we’re here to tell you that the Bulls flip-flopped this…

  24. Jamison to get first start Friday for Cavs

    Feb 18, 2010, 10:43 AM EST

    I’m sure TNT would have been thrilled to find Antawn Jamison’s first post-trade game with the Cavs came on their doubleheader with tonight’s game against Denver in Cleveland, but it looks like that won’t be the case. Cavs beat writer Brian Windhorst, or, the Legendary Brian Windhorst, is reporting that Jamison will likely be unavailable…

  25. Trade Deadline: Salmons for Kurt Thomas and Francisco Elson

    Feb 18, 2010, 10:00 AM EST

    Update 2/18 10:17 am: Reports are now saying that there is some flux on whether the Bulls want Kurt Thomas or Hakim Warrick in combination with Elson. Warrick’s contract is for only $3 million expiring as opposed to Thomas’ $3.8 million expiring. Same basic structure, just a different role and a bit less money. 2/17…
