This is real life. And the Pelicans may be hanging a championship banner at some point, too. With the two of them joining forces, who knows what the Pelicans will be capable of!

Ex-Kings DeMarcus Cousins, Omri Casspi leave Sacramento

Ex-Kings DeMarcus Cousins, Omri Casspi leave Sacramento

The Celtics also get to keep their future cap flexibility as well as their highly coveted draft picks. There is no standard reaction. This also shows that the front office is thinking ahead instead of banking on winning right now. For a veteran with a young family at home, this is a hard time of year, especially when your team is clearly going a new direction. That pick was looking like it had a chance to convey into a first-rounder before the Cousins trade. Read More

76ers trade Nerlens Noel to Mavericks

76ers trade Nerlens Noel to Mavericks

And yet he's still here. He was a first-round pick (No. 6 overall) by the Pelicans in 2013. Bogut also wouldn't negatively affect Boston's cap situation - his contract expires after this season. He's a good rebounder and a rangy, elite-level defender, capable of chasing the NBA's most mobile big men all over the floor. Blocks are -3.0. Offensive rating is -7.4, 97.5 when he plays, while the opponent's offensive rating is +7.4, now at ridiculous 113.6 when he's on the court. Read More

Pierce didn't see the court on Thursday, and it was probably for the best as the Warriors erased a 12-point halftime deficit with a ... Read More

Chicago Bulls: Top 5 All-Star Moments In Team History

I think these Lakers talks may be a matter of causing a bidding war. "We put a lot of time and thought into this". George is one of the most dynamic players in the National Basketball Association, and while he may have reached his ceiling in IN when he led the Pacers to consecutive conference finals, a versatile two-way force of nature in his prime will surely warrant a heavy return in any trade, making teams like the Celtics one of the few clubs with the right collection of assets ...
