NBA teams dig (and dig deep) for information about available players. But there are limits, as Hawks GM Danny Ferry learned recently.
In the post-Donald Sterling era of zero tolerance, a racially offensive email sent two years ago compelled Atlanta Hawks owner Bruce Levenson to sell his controlling interest in the team.
Everything changed for the Cleveland Cavaliers when LeBron James decided to go home. With Kevin Love finally landing in Cleveland on Saturday, James' mission to bring his hometown a championship got real.
Derrick Rose hasn't practiced or played since Team USA's exhibition victory over Brazil on Saturday. After sitting out a 105-62 victory over the Dominican Republic Wednesday night, the former MVP insisted there's nothing to worry about.
No member of Team USA is in a position to feel more empathy for Paul George than the often-injured Derrick Rose. "That could've been me," the Bulls' point guard said Tuesday.
With Kevin Durant sitting this one out and Paul George on the mend, James Harden believes it's his time to fill the void on Team USA.
In recent years, the NBA's showcase event has been overshadowed by endless speculation about the trade deadline. By adding some much needed breathing room with a longer All-Star break, the fun might be restored.
As the Donald Sterling saga unfolded in all of its ugliness, the perception of whose mess this was to clean up was terribly misplaced right from the beginning.
The sale of the Los Angeles Clippers to Steve Ballmer closed Tuesday, the NBA announced, ending a nearly four-month effort to oust Donald Sterling as owner of the team.
Last summer, Kevin Durant and Kevin Love were the first NBA stars to commit to Team USA for the 2014 FIBA World Cup. Now, they're both out, and a summer to forget for USA Basketball just got worse.
