Jamal Crawford Joining Celtics Could Be Worthwhile to Both Player and Team Under Right Conditions, Contract

Jamal Crawford is either vastly overpaid or criminally underpaid, relative to his colleagues, depending on whether one puts more stock in recent performance or track record. To virtually nobody's surprise (except apparently his own), Crawford received no deal better than the two-year contract the Portland Trail Blazers offered last offseason. The $5 million midlevel exception...

Bobcats open to deal for No. 2 pick

General manager Rich Cho says it will take ''something enticing'' for the Bobcats to trade away the No. 2 overall pick in the NBA draft. Cho won't say exactly what that entails. For now the Bobcats haven't received a tantalizing enough offer and still own the rights to the No. 2 pick, although that could certainly change before the start of Thursday night...

Brandon Roy reportedly drawing interest from several teams

Brandon Roy’s name may have been accompanied by the word “retirement” not too long ago, but that discussion was clearly premature. As Roy recovers from knee problems and prepares for his return to the NBA, a number of teams who believe he has plenty of good basketball remaining in his legs are lining up and preparing to make an offer. According to Yahoo! Sports, the Bulls,...

Rip City perspective: Portland Trail Blazers draft day 2012

Lottery Watch It’s Portland Trail Blazers draft day! 1:00pm – After extensively combing through the mock drafts on ESPN, CNNSI, YAHOO, and pretty much everywhere in between and beyond for the past week and all through the morning, the day is finally here.  Yes we know that “The Brow” will be taken first overall, although for some reason I don’t believe that he will live...

Bobcats like No. 2, but will listen to all offers

Bobcats general manager Rich Cho says it will take ''something enticing'' for the team to trade away the No. 2 overall pick in the NBA draft. So far nothing tantalizing enough has come along. That could change before the start of Thursday night's NBA draft though. While Bobcats president of basketball operations Rod Higgins says the team ''likes the...

Jamal Crawford Officially Opts For Free Agency

Jamal Crawford has officially exercised his opt-out to become a free agent.

Portland Trail Blazers Need To Get Harrison Barnes

The 2012 NBA Draft will commence at 4PM this evening, and there is but one draftee among those eligible who can single-handedly reverse the Portland Trail Blazers recent fortunes. Harrison Barnes. Wait... don't go, not just yet. Hear me out. If you've been paying attention, you've heard the reports. He had a poor 2012 NCAA Tournament. He cannot create his own shot...

Crawford, Jsmoove On C's Radar?

With the fate of Rays return seemingly zilch, Boston has been looking at players to help out Pierce and replace Ray. Two options that have been getting a lot of blog attention around C's nation are Jamal Crawford from Portland and Josh Smith from Atlanta. My opinion is I don't see how we get Josh Smith. It seems improbable that the Hawks would do a deal so close in...

Bobcats Draft Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

Bobcats general manager, Rich Cho, was undoubtedly fielding trade calls all the way up until decision time. The Bobcats stood firm and surprised some people with their draft pick.

Thomas Robinson fits Bobcats' plans

The Charlotte Bobcats set an NBA record for futility this past season and also failed to land the top spot in Thursday nights draft. So they go into the draft with a new coach hired last week and the second overall pick. Given the teams needs are so extensive, what should they do with that first-round pick? If general manager Rich Cho and president Michael Jordan choose to keep...
