This is really happening.
The Sacramento Kings have traded three-time NBA All-Star DeMarcus Cousins and Omri Casspi to the New Orleans Pelicans. In return, the Kings receive rookie guard Buddy Hield, Tyreke Evans, Langston Galloway, and a 2017 first-round pick and second-rounder (via Philadelphia), according to The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
Schröder fuels Atlanta’s comeback with another big performance.
Dennis Schröder came into this season as a bit of a question mark but he is quickly establishing himself as a go-to player for the Atlanta Hawks.
After a somewhat up and down start to the season, Schröder has put together one of the best months of his career in December. That was on display Friday night when he scored 12 of his 27 points in the fourth quarter to help Atlanta steal a road win in Denver.
It’s no secret that the Atlanta Hawks have entrusted the starting point guard position to the 23-year old Dennis Schröder. Over the past couple of seasons observers could clearly see Schröder pushing the previous incumbent Jeff Teague for crunch time minutes. Last season especially, Mike Budenholzer would often stick with, or go back to Schröder during the closing stretch of games on those occasions when young German guard could find that often elusive balance between a healthy aggressiveness and just enough to control to let him play at his highest level.
The Nuggets were victorious in their first home game since February 15.
The Nuggets didn’t show up for their first game back from the All-Star break last night, and before the game, some raised concern that Nikola Jokic hasn’t played like himself lately suggesting that perhaps the pressure of being the focal point of the team is getting to him.
The Nuggets find themselves in a tight race to the finish for the eighth playoff seed. This one may come right down to the...
Failed coach Derek Fisher wants you to know he can still dribble and knock down pull-up jumpers. But will any teams bite on a soon-to-be 42-year-old point guard after his two-year hiatus?
The Utah Jazz have interest in acquiring their former star point guard, Deron Williams, in a deal with the Dallas Mavericks, according to ESPN’s Tim McMahon and Marc Stein. No trade is considered imminent.
Williams also cannot be traded without his approval because he’s playing under a one-year contract.
Derrick Rose was found not liable on all charges in a civil suit brought against him by Jane Doe accusing him of rape, a jury ruled on Wednesday in a California court.
The decision was reached by an eight-person jury of six women and two men, who deliberated for about three hours Wednesday before telling U.S. District Judge Michael W. Fitzgerald that it had reached a decision.
Knicks point guard Derrick Rose went missing from the team Monday without permission but later reached team officials, telling them he had a family situation and had returned to his hometown of Chicago, sources told ESPN.
He was back at the team facility Tuesday.
Rose missed Monday night's loss to the Pelicans, and the Knicks had grown concerned enough earlier to check on him at his apartment, sources said.
Rose and the Bulls had a great run together, but both parties needed to move on.
On Friday, Derrick Rose will play at the United Center as a visitor for the first time after spending the first eight years of his career in his native Chicago. It should be an emotional night, both for the player and the fans.
SAN FRANCISCO—Despite forward Kawhi Leonard being uncertain with a sprained left ankle and two disheartening NBA playoff losses at Golden State, the San Antonio Spurs vowed Thursday to fight back aggressively.
“You’ve got to be the aggressor. You’ve got to be sharp for 48 minutes and you’ve got to take it to them,” Spurs centre Pau Gasol said. “You’ve got to be the most physical team, the team that wants it the most and play with that edge and that feeling the entire game.”
Maybe you should have a seat, stop talking for awhile Jae.
Well friends, there’s still plenty of reason to watch Phoenix Suns basketball.
The Suns keep trying to rebuild, but their best hope for escaping the darkness lies in the player they drafted after trying to win.
The Phoenix Suns have tanked out twice within the past five years. In return they have a 20-year-old kid who looks like a potential superstar. This is how it is supposed to work, right?
Another “shaky” game ends up in another solid victory
Ah, the emotions of being a sports fan. The Warriors came out and started the game with one of those first halves that has Warriors faithful sweating. And in the end, we wound up winning the game by double digits. Were you worried? I was, but only a little, and only until the 3rd quarter started.
DORAL, Fla. — Goran Dragic got the word he was getting traded to Miami and didn't need long to start envisioning what it would be like to play alongside Chris Bosh.
That was nearly two years ago.
And they got a mere 44 games together.
Getting ready to play without Bosh has become an unfortunate tradition in Dragic's tenure as point guard for the Heat. And with the team set to fly to the Bahamas on Monday for a training camp without not only Bosh but Dwyane Wade as well, Dragic knows his role with the Heat is about to expand in ways he likely could not have imagined.
Following their first three game losing streak since 2015, the Warriors finally bounced back...sort of.
Don’t call it a tale of two halves: it was more of a sandwich.
Tuesday night, the Golden State Warriors sandwiched a rancid second and third quarter with a sharp offensive first quarter and a delicious fourth quarter. That resulted in a tense, stressful 106-104 victory at Oracle.
Golden State Warriors and U.S. Olympic team forward Draymond Green apologized for posting a picture of his penis on social media.
Officials are not giving Green the benefit of the doubt anymore.
Draymond Green has been called for two technical fouls in just five games this season. That seems a little much even for him, since he received 12 during all of the 2015-16 regular season.
Draymond Green is a hero to Major League Baseball fans everywhere. Also, the Cubs were there.
With a few days off between pre-season games, Golden State Warriors star and noted Oakland A’s fan Draymond Green decided to take in a ballgame across the bay.
After scoring only 47 points in the first half, Golden State goes for 43 points in the third quarter.
I’m not saying the Golden State Warriors don’t need Draymond Green, but they didn’t need him tonight.
