Rumors fly but Indiana interest in Lopez seems far-fetched

Rumors fly but Indiana interest in Lopez seems far-fetched

There are a lot of rumors flying around All-Star weekend in New Orleans, the most likely about DeMarcus Cousins headed to New Orleans for players, picks and what not. But the one that has Indiana interested in Brook Lopez —and offering a 2017 first rounder, Al Jefferson and Rodney Stuckey— doesn’t seem to have legs. Peter Vecsey, who left the New York Post a few years back —but still has NBA contacts, tweeted this just before midnight. I leave u with this: Pacers R trying 2 get Lopez. Will their 2017 No. 1, Jefferson & Stuckey satisfy BK? Can Nets get more from C's or NO?—...

2017 All-Star Game Thread: Carmelo Anthony vs. the West

Forget all the other players. The New York Knicks have dominated All-Star Weekend so far, with Kristaps Porzingis and Willy Hernangomez teaming up to win the Rising Stars Challenge on Friday and the Unicorn taking home the Skills Challenge trophy on Saturday. Now Carmelo Anthony has a chance to complete the trifecta as the Easter Conference All-Stars take on the West. Tip-off is at 8 PM on TNT. This is your game thread. Please be excellent to one another, and go Melo!

Rumor: Celtics interested in Danilo Gallinari

Rumor: Celtics interested in Danilo Gallinari

Because who couldn’t use more shooting? Steve Bulpett mentioned that the Celtics are still interested in Danilo Gallinari. You can expect the Celts to keep an eye on Danilo Gallinari, a shooter they’ve tried to get in the past. Ainge has an NBA man-crush on Gallinari, who hasn’t been on the rumor radar, but that also was the case when Ainge went after Isaiah Thomas two years ago. As well as the Celtics have shot, they could always use more floor spacing.

Rumor: Celtics interested in PJ Tucker

Add him to the list of minor potential moves. Buried in an article about Jimmy Butler is a blurb about the Celtics interest in PJ Tucker. via Sean Deveney They can do that without Butler, instead trying to make a minor move for a contributor like Suns forward P.J. Tucker. Boston has expressed deep interest in Tucker ahead of the deadline, a source said. Get Tucker, and the Celtics can add depth without giving up on a potential No. 1 pick. And there is cap space available this summer to sign a player in free agency. Without trading for Butler, Boston could keep the pick and get a name...

NBA All-Star Game 2017 Preview: Beef-watch

NBA All-Star Game 2017 Preview: Beef-watch

All anyone cares about is the game within this game Last night’s All Star Saturday had a shambolic dunk contest, Kyle Lowry putting up an ungodly 9 in the three-point contest, and DeMar DeRozan canning a three as part of the donation to Craig Sager’s charity. After that relative dud, we look to Sunday to get things back on track as the All Star festivities come to a close. The All Star Game always offers a few storylines worth following, and this time is no different. Two Raptors Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan are deserving All Stars, as they each make their third appearance. DeRozan...

The calm before the storm

The calm before the storm

Brian Lewis spoke to Caris LeVert (and his college and NBA coaches) about what is the dominant trait of on-court personality: His calm. And what shaped it: his father’s sudden death from a heart attack at age 46. “With his father’s sudden death he had to become an adult at a very young age. He had to become the man of the house,” Michigan coach John Beilein told The Post. “In his first year, there wasn’t the leadership yet, just the calming attitude and a lot of confidence. … We tried to redshirt him and he was just killing us in practice every day. As soon as we put him in...

The Week That Was: A Eventful Week in Raptors History Ends With An Uneventful All-Star Saturday

The Week That Was: A Eventful Week in Raptors History Ends With An Uneventful All-Star Saturday

Definitely picked the perfect week to start a new weekly thing called The Week That Was where we look back at the week that was. Things started ominously last Sunday when the Raptors blew a 16-point lead at home to the Detroit Pistons, prompting a Kyle Lowry to ask for some change without explicitly saying what he wanted (Dwane Casey? Less DeMar DeRozan in crunchtime? A trade?). Well, we didn’t have to wait long as Masai Ujiri pulled off arguably the most important trade in his Raptors tenure, sending Terrence Ross and a first round pick for Serge Ibaka, who will be a free agent this...

Looking at Sean Marks first year

If you listen to Sean Marks long enough, you will hear him use a signature phrase about the challenge he’s facing, now exactly year into his career as Nets GM. “It’s the hand we were dealt,” he will say, a phrase the encompasses lost draft picks, a lack of experienced talent, a barren culture, etc. The previous regime’s mistakes are at the core of what he will have to do to bring the Nets back into contention. There is no complaint in the phrase, no mention of Billy King ... or ownership, just an acknowledgement of the starting point in what could be a rebuild lasting three,...

NBA All-Star Skills Challenge: Unicorn beats Leprechaun

Isaiah was unable to get to the final round of the 2017 NBA Skills Challenge which was ultimately won by big man Kristaps Porzingis. For Celtics’ fans hoping the third time would be the charm for Isaiah Thomas,the 2017 NBA Skills Challenge was a disappointment. The third time entrant (entering for his second time as a Celtic) failed to make it to the final round after being eliminated in the ‘smalls’ semi-final by Jae Crowder’s current arch-nemesis, Gordon Hayward. Isaiah was the early favorite after getting off to a quick start as the King in the Fourth made short work of Phoenix...

Deadlines and Commitments - No. 90

The Nets enter the homestretch of the regular season this week. Numerically, the Nets are beyond the halfway point of the season, but the stretch between now and April 12 will go a long way to determining what the Nets roster (and draft picture?) will look like going into the off-season.
