  1. PBT Roundtable: Who will win Rookie of the Year?

    Oct 11, 2013, 12:55 AM EDT

    Trey Burke

    Welcome to PBT’s regular roundtable on issues around the NBA, where our writers weigh in on the topic of the day. Today: Who will win the NBA Rookie of the Year Award? Kurt Helin: There’s a formula to this — you need a guy with the ball in his hand on a bad team that is…

  2. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: The Orlando Magic

    Oct 4, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Tobias Harris

    Last season: It was a season of transition. The Magic started out near .500 (12-13) but when Glen Davis got injured things fell apart. The Magic won 8 games the rest of the year and by the trade deadline they had fully embraced the rebuild, meaning J.J. Redick was the first out the door in…

  3. Jameer Nelson understands he’s on the trade block

    Oct 2, 2013, 11:42 AM EDT

    Orlando Magic v Indiana Pacers - Game Five

    Jameer Nelson is not in the future plans of the Orlando Magic, which is why he’s on everybody’s trade watch lists for this season. The Magic are rebuilding with youth, he is a 31-year-old point guard making a team-high $8.6 million this season but can be bought out for $2 million next season. (Yes, technically…

  4. Trey Burke thinks there’s ‘a good chance’ he can win Rookie of the Year award

    Sep 26, 2013, 9:41 PM EDT

    Trey Burke

    Trey Burke was selected with the ninth overall pick in this summer’s draft, but was traded that night from the Timberwolves to the Jazz after Minnesota felt they could get better value by trading down to the 14th slot. With eight players going ahead of him, Burke wouldn’t appear to be the favorite to take…

  5. Victor Oladipo says “I really didn’t want to go to Cleveland” (then tries to retract it)

    Sep 13, 2013, 10:43 AM EDT

    via @NBA twitter

    Sports stars are learning what politicians have started to learn — in today’s media environment your comments are not just heard by the small audience in front of you. Your comments are national, they are everywhere. (Politicians love to tell each audience what they want to hear, but do that today and the inconsistencies in…

  6. Kings sign DeQuan Jones to training camp contract

    Sep 13, 2013, 10:14 AM EDT

    DeQuan Jones

    DeQuan Jones played in 63 games with the Orlando Magic last season and was a regular part of the rotation, but with Victor Oladipo coming in Jones was out. Since then he hasn’t been able to find a landing spot. He’s going to go training camp with the Sacramento Kings on a non-guaranteed deal, reports…

  7. Magic to use Victor Oladipo at both guard spots

    Sep 13, 2013, 8:43 AM EDT

    Victor Oladipo

    At Summer League, the Orlando Magic decided to play just drafted Victor Oladipo at the point in what was seen then as an experiment — could the rookie really play the position? The answer seemed to be no. Or at best, he has a lot of work to do before you put him there. But…

  8. Khalif Wyatt agrees to partially-guaranteed deal with Sixers

    Sep 13, 2013, 12:04 AM EDT

    Temple v Indiana

    Khalif Wyatt, an undrafted rookie out of Temple University, has agreed to a partially-guaranteed deal with the Philadelphia 76ers. From Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer (via CSN Philly): He will sign a partially guaranteed, mutli-year contract on Friday. The guard will be on the team’s roster when it opens the season against the Miami Heat on…

  9. Kevin Durant, Michael Beasley starred at Goodman League’s Roundball Classic

    Aug 31, 2013, 12:37 PM EDT

    BASKET-TPE-US-NBA

    The allure of pro-am basketball isn’t what it was during the 2011 NBA lockout, but watching the best players in the world play basketball — wherever they’re at and regardless of their opponents — is still fun to watch on a lazy August day. And, because of that, we’re bringing you highlights of the 2013…

  10. DeQuan Jones doesn’t like NCAA’s Manziel ruling

    Aug 29, 2013, 3:46 PM EDT

    DeQuan Jones

    DeQuan Jones played four years at the University of Miami, but he wasn’t really considered an NBA prospect. That said he got in with the Magic and hung with them last season, getting in 63 games and being a regular part of the rotation. Not a good part, really, but part. Then the Magic drafted…

  11. Victor Oladipo holds his own with Kevin Durant at Goodman League (VIDEO)

    Aug 27, 2013, 1:25 PM EDT

    Kevin Durant

    Magic rookie to be Victor Oladipo could not stop Kevin Durant from scoring at the Goodman League the other day. When you can find somebody who can stop Durant from scoring (besides than Russell Westbrook in selfish mode), let me know. But Oladipo held his own — watch the highlights (we showed you some shorter…

  12. Kelly Olynyk, C.J. McCollum fare well in annual rookie survey

    Aug 27, 2013, 9:04 AM EDT

    Kelly Olynyk

    We already told you that when asked during the rookie photo shoot who their favorite player in the league was, the majority of incoming NBA players said Kobe Bryant. But those rookies to be were asked a lot more, too — and it was the Celtics Kelly Olynyk and the Trail Blazers’ C.J. McCollum who…

  13. Kevin Durant, Victor Oladipo shine at Goodman League (VIDEO)

    Aug 26, 2013, 12:20 AM EDT

    Kevin_Durant-174-186_20933

    By the end of this week FIBA Americas starts, then on Sept. 7 we get EuroBasket — actual competitive basketball with something (pride at least) on the line. For now, we have pro-ams, and the best one going is probably in Washington DC where Victor Oladipo and Kevin Durant showed up to put on a…

  14. Should NBA referees wear Google glass?

    Aug 20, 2013, 10:52 AM EDT

    Victor Oladipo

    This is not very likely to happen — the league wouldn’t let Victor Oladipo wear Google Glass to the NBA Draft, so they’re not about to let them wear it in games. But should they — wear glasses that record and upload what they see so we can see, so the league office can see…

  15. Who are Rookie of the Year favorites? Burke, Oladipo to start

    Aug 9, 2013, 1:15 PM EDT

    Trey Burke

    There’s a formula for who often wins the Rookie of the year. They have to be a good player, certainly. More than that, he needs to be a player with the ball in his hands and on a team where he is going to be asked to take on a lot of responsibility. Damian Lillard…

  16. Victor Oladipo talks draft, how things are different now with NBC Sports

    Aug 7, 2013, 7:15 PM EDT

    via @NBA twitter

    On the right, that’s Victor Oladipo, the first round pick of the Magic out Indiana, who has some real promise as part of the rebuilding going on in Florida. That is the Oladipo who was posterizing his fellow rookies and likes to wear Google Glass. On the left, that’s Kay Adams, who you certainly know…

  17. Victor Oladipo, Cody Zeller dunk all over other rookies (VIDEO)

    Aug 7, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Victor Oladipo, Cody Zeller

    Clearly, rookie photo day is taken very seriously. As part of the fun Indiana teammates last year Victor Oladipo and Cody Zeller set it up so Oladipo could dunk all over his fellow rookies — on a trash-can rim with what I guess is a NERF ball. Doesn’t matter, getting dunked on is getting dunked…

  18. A few more images out of Rookie photo shoot day

    Aug 7, 2013, 2:57 AM EDT

    Trey Burke

    As we’ve been telling you, Tuesday was Rookie Photo Shoot day in the NBA — we’ve brought you some fun images and a couple good dunks. Tomorrow we’ll have some other fun stuff from the day. But for now here are some of the official photos of the day that I liked. No. 1 pick…

  19. NBA releases 2013-14 schedule, here are your opening night and Christmas Day matchups

    Aug 6, 2013, 6:51 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat

    After several notable leaks over the past couple of weeks, we finally have the official version of the 2013-14 NBA schedule. Let’s get right to it by taking a look at the slate for some of the key dates in the season. OPENING NIGHT: Tuesday, October 29 MAGIC at PACERS: The first game of the…

  20. A few early highlights from NBA rookie photo shoot

    Aug 6, 2013, 2:12 PM EDT

    via @nba twitter

    Today is the NBA rookie photo shoot, where usually some pretty cool and inventive shots are taken. But the first stuff coming out on the NBA’s twitter account are just more fun. Enjoy. Jamaal Franklin: Kelly Olynyk: The Pistons rookies: Shabazz Muhammad: Victor Oladipo:

  21. Roy Hibbert works out wearing Google Glass (VIDEO)

    Aug 2, 2013, 4:05 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Miami Heat - Game Five

    If you ever wondered what Roy Hibbert sees when he is working out — or when dunking a basketball — there you go. Hibbert worked out wearing Google Glass, which certainly went better than Victor Oladipo‘s attempt to wear them to the NBA Draft. It’s interesting. No sure about cool, but interesting. Hat tip The Basketball…

  22. NBA post free agency Power Rankings: Who is closing in on Miami?

    Jul 29, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers' Paul and Griffin wait for play to resume as the Clippers trail the San Antonio Spurs during the second half of an NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    This summer saw Dwight Howard find a new home, the Clippers and Pacers add depth, and a few other teams making bold moves to get better (or, in some cases, worse intentionally). So how did all this impact the PBT Power Rankings? Glad you asked. Here is where things stand this summer (the number in…

  23. Magic announce signing of Ronnie Price

    Jul 25, 2013, 4:22 PM EDT

    Ronnie Price

    As Orlando continues a rebuilding project which appears to be coming along ahead of schedule, the team has added a veteran presence to its locker room that should help with developing the youngsters into true professionals. The Magic announced the signing of Ronnie Price on Thursday, for what is believed to be a one-year deal…

  24. Marcus Smart declares for 2014 NBA Draft

    Jul 23, 2013, 11:16 PM EDT

    Johnathan Loyd, Marcus Smart

    Marcus Smart – a potential No. 1 pick and top-10 lock – made the surprising decision to forgo the 2013 NBA Draft and return to Oklahoma State. Though he says he doesn’t regret it, Smart won’t be repeating that choice next year. Marcus J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports: Oklahoma State point guard Marcus Smart doesn’t…

  25. Report: Magic to sign Ronnie Price

    Jul 16, 2013, 11:36 PM EDT

    Amar'e Stoudemire, Ronnie Price

    Much like why the tanking Jazz signed John Lucas III, the tanking Magic will sign another guard with a reputation for being a good locker room presence. Chris Haynes of CSN Northwest: Ronnie Price has reached an agreement with the Orlando Magic, a league source informed CSNNW.com. Alex Kennedy of Hoops World: Ronnie Price's agreement…
