  1. 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…

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

    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…

  3. 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…

    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…

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

    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…

    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…

  9. 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…

  10. 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,…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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,…

  15. 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…

  16. 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…

  17. 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…

  18. 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…

  19. 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…

  20. Grizzlies owner gives in, agrees to pay draft picks full scale and they sign

    Sep 16, 2010, 8:53 AM EDT

    Just a few weeks ago, Memphis Grizzlies owner Michael Heisley was adamant he was right and every other team in the NBA (save San Antonio) was wrong — the tradition of giving players 120 percent of their rookie scale deal was a mistake. Players could get 100 percent of rookie scale, but that extra 20…

  21. Grizzlies owner more defensive about Xavier Henry contract than his team gets on the court

    Aug 23, 2010, 7:33 PM EDT

    Last year, the Memphis Grizzlies had the No. 2 pick in the draft and took a big-man project in Hasheem Thabeet. We don’t know yet how that will turn out long term, Thabeet is a work in progress. We do know that the guys taken after him — James Harden, Tyreke Evans, Stephen Curry, Brandon Jennings,…

  22. What is holding up the Xavier Henry signing? Well, can he make the All-Rookie team?

    Aug 19, 2010, 5:33 PM EDT

    Maybe the definition of the NBA silly season has been the Xavier Henry contract situation. To recap: Henry has not signed his contract. There is a rookie contract scale in place so the NBA doesn’t look like the NFL with guys who never played a down holding out, Henry is slotted for just shy of…

  23. Of Xavier Henry, Nate Robinson, rookie contracts and incentives

    Aug 16, 2010, 2:32 PM EDT

    Xavier Henry and the Memphis Grizzlies remain at an impasse. There are only two first round picks from the last draft that have not signed, and they both belong to the Memphis Grizzlies. It’s because Memphis has broken with what is seen as rookie contract tradition. According to the Collective Bargaining Agreement, rookie contracts are…

  24. Grizzlies play hardball with Xavier Henry for no good reason

    Jul 19, 2010, 12:26 PM EDT

    The Memphis Grizzlies threw $84 million at Rudy Gay this summer because he has potential to be a team leader. Because we’re sure that outside shot will come around. Right? But the team’s top draft pick Xavier Henry sat out summer league and remains unsigned in a battle over $336,700. This is why, as much…

  25. What NBA Draft night meant for five teams

    Jun 25, 2010, 9:32 AM EDT

    We just finished a season. The confetti is still stuck to Laker fans’ shoes. But one of the best things about the NBA is that immediately the slate is wiped clean and the season begins anew with the draft. And more so than any other sport, draft night can define your franchise. Even if you…
