Xavier Henry

  1. Lakers’ Xavier Henry’s half court buzzer beater (VIDEO)

    Xavier Henry, Dewayne Dedmon

    Kobe Bryant is in Germany (he was going to get around to telling Mike D’Antoni he was going but it slipped his mind). Pau Gasol and Steve Nash were watching in suits. So the Lakers had to turn to some of the guys fighting to make the team/get minutes to step up against Golden State…

  2. Lakers make Marcus Landry signing official

    We’ve known about Marcus Landry getting a training camp invite from the Lakers for quite some time, but the team made things official with an announcement on Monday. Landry earned his spot with a stellar performance for the Lakers at the Las Vegas Summer League, where he averaged 15.2 points and 4.2 rebounds in 26.5 minutes…

  3. Lakers make it official, sign Xavier Henry. Create camp competition.

    Sep 5, 2013, 4:43 PM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Los Angeles Lakers

    I love HBO’s “Hard Knocks” — the show that tracks an NFL team through training camp, this season the Cincinnati Bengals. There is great drama because there are few guaranteed contracts in the NFL and there are 75 guys fighting for 53 spots. It would almost never work in the NBA because there just isn’t…

  4. Lakers reportedly have interest in a young forward… Xavier Henry

    Sep 4, 2013, 3:52 PM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets v Los Angeles Lakers

    Driving in Los Angeles today I heard the broadcasters on the Lakers flagship station talking themselves into Michael Beasley. They gave it a lot of caveats — if he would take the league minimum (he’s going to have to) and if he plays within the system (he hasn’t anywhere else, don’t think this will be…

  5. Wall, Sanders got their rookie extensions, what about the other rookies?

    Aug 30, 2013, 1:42 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    John Wall will be with the Wizards for five more seasons, making $80 million. Larry Sanders will be with Milwaukee for four more years, $44 million. Those are the first two extensions to the rookie deals out of the 2010 draft. They were both expected and both got done early — teams have until Oct.…

  6. Reports: Pelicans to offer Tyreke Evans $40 million–$44 million

    Jul 1, 2013, 5:16 PM EDT

    Kings Hornets Basketball

    Tyreke Evans, a restricted free agent, can’t sign an offer sheet until July 10. But he can agree to terms on one, and though it wouldn’t be binding, it’s an extreme breach of protocol to renege at that point. So, Evans and teams can negotiate in good faith right now. Once Evans signs an offer…

  7. Report: Pelicans making big offer to Tyreke Evans

    Jul 1, 2013, 1:58 AM EDT

    Tyreke Evans, Robin Lopez

    The Pelicans aren’t content adding just Jrue Holiday and Pierre Jackson to a dynamic backcourt that already included Eric Gordon and Greivis Vasquez. They’re also ready to offer Tyreke Evans, a restricted free agent, a sizable contract. David Aldridge of NBA.com: As @ESPNSteinLine reported, Pelicans will meet with Tyreke Evans late tonight. Told they will…

  8. Miami has to get bigger, better if they dream of a three-peat

    Jun 21, 2013, 1:16 PM EDT

    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…

  9. Three Stars of the Night: Kobe, ‘Melo and Swaggy P

    Nov 21, 2012, 1:39 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v New York Knicks

    Only three games tonight, so how about we give the three stars to the key players from each of the three winning teams. Sounds good to me. Third Star: Kobe Bryant (25 points, 5 assists, +20) Kobe Bryant has spent almost his entire career in Phil Jackson’s triangle, the only times outside it were in…

  10. Hornets Xavier Henry has minor knee operation

    What is it with Hornets players needing minor surgery Friday? First it was Austin Rivers needing some bone spurs taken out of his ankle, and now it is swingman Xavier Henry having his knee cleaned up a little bit, according to Jimmy Smith of the Times-Picayune. GM Dell Demps confirmed that Henry had arthroscopic surgery to…

  11. Wes Johnson found his touch Saturday at NBA Summer League

    Jul 22, 2012, 12:00 AM EDT

    wes johnson

    LAS VEGAS — To put it nicely, Wes Johnson was a bit underwhelming last season for the Minnesota Timberwolves. That wasn’t the case on Saturday night inside Cox Pavilion, however, as the former fourth overall pick put together quite the performance against the NBA D-League Select team in lovely Las Vegas. The wing player has…

  12. NBA Summer League: Where Chris Copeland comes to shine

    The NBA Summer League season continued on Sunday with seven more games of players looking to reach the next level by way of a couple solid exhibition games in lovely Las Vegas. It doesn’t seem like anyone is a can’t miss signee quite yet, but the odds began to favor a few players that have…

  15. UPDATE: Grizzlies, 76ers, Hornets agree to Speights trade

    Jan 4, 2012, 11:17 AM EDT

    Marreese Speights

    UPDATE 1:52 pm: This trade became official, according to the Commercial Appeal. And as we feared, it’s because the Zach Randolph injury was more serious than first thought. UPDATE 11:17 am: This has grown into a three-team trade involving the New Orleans Hornets that is “on course” to come to fruition Wednesday, reports Marc Stein…

  16. Grizzlies trade Vasquez to Hornets for Pondexter

    Dec 24, 2011, 8:01 PM EDT

    VASQUEZ_GREIVIS

    In a trade that if it winds up affecting the NBA season means something has gone horribly horribly wrong, the Memphis Grizzlies traded guard Greivis Vasquez to the New Orleans Hornets for guard-forward Quincy Pondexter. Grizzlies head coach Lionel Hollins has spoken highly of guard Jeremy Pargo backing up it Mike Conley in preseason play,…

  17. It’s official, Grizzlies Arthur out for season with torn Achilles

    Dec 20, 2011, 9:13 AM EDT

    ARTHUR_DARRELL

    We knew it looked bad when it happened Saturday, and now the worst has been confirmed. Grizzlies forward Darrell Arthur will be out for the season with a torn Achilles, reports the Commercial Appeal. There is a six-to-12 month recovery time. Arthur is a versatile backup big — he can play the four or the…

  18. Grizzlies Henry out for month with torn ankle ligaments

    Henry_Xavier

    Xavier Henry, who played in only 38 games for the Memphis Grizzlies last year due to injury, was seen at Grizzlies training camp Tuesday in crutches. That’s not good. Here is the tweet from the Memphis Commercial Appeal. Henry out up to a month with torn ligaments in rt ankle. Henry in walking boot We…

  19. O.J. Mayo trade to Pacers dead

    Dec 13, 2011, 1:56 PM EDT

    O. J. Mayo

    It looked like a done deal, but the trade that would have sent O.J. Mayo to the Pacers and Josh McRoberts to the Grizzlies is dead, according to tweets from the Memphis Commercial Appeal. What’s more, Mayo was told he would not be traded anywhere. The fact that the Grizzlies Xavier Henry is out for…

  20. Grizzlies trade Mayo to Pacers for McRoberts, Rush

    Dec 12, 2011, 12:19 PM EDT

    O. J. Mayo

    UPDATE 12:19 pm: This trade has become official, according to Hoopsworld. O.J.Mayo heads to the Indiana Pacers for Josh McRoberts. Really like this move for the Pacers, who have a nice, well-rounded team right now. Not going to compete with Miami/Chicago, but this is a much better team than people think. On the flip side,…

  21. Grizzlies’ rookie Xavier Henry might still need surgery

    May 17, 2011, 9:10 AM EDT

    Henry_Xavier

    During the playoffs, how the Grizzlies were making a run to Game 7 of the second round without Rudy Gay was always part of the “this is why they will be better next season” conversation. The other guy the Grizzlies didn’t have was rookie guard Xavier Henry, who played in only 38 games for Memphis…

  22. Grizzlies Xavier Henry could be done for season with knee surgery

    Feb 25, 2011, 3:02 PM EDT

    2010 NBA Draft

    Xavier Henry wasn’t getting a lot of minutes lately anyway, and any he might have seen with O.J. Mayo leaving town went away when Mayo didn’t actually leave town (and Shane Battier came in, too), but this still is a little concerning. Grizzlies’ rookie Henry may be out the rest of the season due to…

  23. Grizzlies’ owner Heisley gives O.J. Mayo pep talk

    Dec 17, 2010, 3:40 PM EDT

    Memphis Grizzlies v Orlando Magic

    O.J. Mayo was sent to the bench in favor of rookie Xavier Henry — and that has been best for the team and him, now that Mayo has started to accept the bench scorer role and put up double digit points the last three games, including 24 against the Bobcats. But that doesn’t mean it’s…

  24. Lionel Hollins sends O.J. Mayo to the bench

    Nov 26, 2010, 1:11 PM EDT

    O.J. Mayo

    Forming and maintaining a rotation is a delicate process for any head coach, and there are myriad factors that need to be considered, evaluated, and balanced. It’s in no way a simple process, as even the subtlest of shuffles can give an entirely new feel to a team’s offensive or defensive flow. In theory, that…

  25. Xavier Henry not destined for Top Chef

    Oct 21, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Do you know the first thing you are taught in a quality cooking school? Omelets. Because cooking eggs right is not easy, there are a lot of good lessons to be learned. Eggs are challenging. Unless you are scrambling them, then it’s simple… oops, sorry Xavier Henry. The best part of this video — the…
