Honestly, Bo might be the better player.

The Sixers get worse this season and add a pick. Very Sam Hinkie deal.

Plenty of changes, but enough to make the playoffs?

As expected, the players Sacramento received in an earlier trade with the Knicks won’t be on next season’s roster.

Antetokounmpo reportedly contemplating D-League and European options

The Knicks just got one of the NBA’s best beards. That may be the best part of this deal.

The way the Kings handled this lets them keep Quincy Acy.

Signing likely sends Isaiah Thomas away from Sacramento

The first rule for a GM in “winning” a trade is to make the other GM think he’s winning it. Even if you think you’re fleecing him. The swap sending Derrick Williams to Sacramento and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute to Minnesota — which has become official — would have been an easy sell for both…

I think Travis Outlaw gets off light here, this could have been a suspension in my book — hitting an airborne player with no play on the ball. But the league in its wisdom has reviewed the above play from the Clippers win Saturday night over the Kings and decided Outlaw should get a $15,000…

That is the Kings’ Patrick Patterson playing the role of the basket, he seeks out an unsuspecting victim in Travis Outlaw… And in comes Ben McLemore with the posterizing dunk. With what appears to be a toy or NERF ball. Best part of the video may be DeMarcus Cousins‘ reaction. Well done Cowbell Kingdom.

Mike Malone has been one of the most well-respected assistant coaches for quite awhile, but he’s moving one seat over this year as head coach of the Sacramento Kings. According to an interview he did with the Sacramento Bee’s Ailene Voisin, it sounds like the new head coach will bring a much-needed energetic approach to…

While everybody was watching the overtime drama to see how the bottom half of the Western Conference would play out, there were a lot of questions in the middle of the conference as well: Could Denver hold on to the three seed? Could the Clippers hold off the Grizzlies and have home court in the…

Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while starting you Christmas shopping finally…. Spurs 129, Mavericks 91: Dirk Nowitizki is back and… yikes. San Antonio just dominated that game, hitting 20-of-30 three pointers, driving into the lane, basically doing whatever they wanted whenever they wanted. Danny Green led…

If you’ve caught yourself watching a Sacramento Kings game lately and thought to yourself, ‘this can’t get any worse’ only to see it get much, much worse – you’re not the only one. As it turns out, the Kings players themselves are having a real hard time understanding the train wreck they’re a part of…

My favorite B-movie of all time is “Killer Clowns from Outer Space.” It is as terrible and ridiculous as the title suggests, an outright cavalcade of campy horror bathed in absurdist light. To try and watch it is to recognize that sometimes, there are things which should not be made, and yet you will watch…

I wrote on Thursday about the recent developments in the Sacramento Kings arena situation, and namely the Maloofs’ recent actions that amount to a legal full court press designed to land the franchise in Anaheim. The quick and dirty to catch you up is this – the Maloofs, Sacramento, AEG, and the NBA came to…

Here we go all over again. It was around this time last year that the Maloofs stormed angrily out of the NBA’s Board of Governor’s meetings, rejected and dejected after they were told they couldn’t go to Disneyland. Today, they returned to New York to pitch the idea that they were somehow wronged during the…

In a story with many chapters, it’s fitting that the book on the Maloofs’ future in the NBA will be written on April 12-13 at the league’s Board of Governors meetings. After all, it’s where the tide turned for Kings fans last year, as Kevin Johnson came out of nowhere with both the will and…

Our morning look around the NBA with stories worth reading and notes that are not their own post here at PBT. A fantastic read at Hoopspeak.com on what the Thunder need to do to get Kevin Durant more open looks. After signing Baron Davis for the mini mid-level, the Knicks are out of the running…

The following is a sentence-by-sentence explanation of a basketball transaction. Please forgive the one-line paragraphs in pursuit of novelty. The Kings today grabbed Travis Outlaw off the amnesty wire. Outlaw was not very good for the Nets last year, that’s why they used the amnesty clause on him. In fact, he was so bad he…

Our morning look around the NBA with stories worth reading and notes that are not their own post here at PBT. If you read one thing today, make it the BlazersEdge look back at the career of Brandon Roy. This is spectacular stuff from Ben Golliver. In case you missed it, PBT previewed all 30 NBA…

Last season: 24-58, a better-than-last-year mark that reminds us all just how terrible bad teams can be. Head Coach: Avery Johnson, who still has a lot to prove. We know he can yell at teams filled with veterans until they win 60+ games, but how effectively can he groom young talent? How does his system…
