Well, there goes another one off the market.
Turiaf, a 6-foot-10 forward, gives the Heat a strong rebounding and defensive presence as they fortify themselves for a title run. For the Heat, Turiaf gives them another tough, experienced veteran to defend the Chicago Bulls and Orlando Magic in the Eastern Conference playoffs. The deal will be announced later Wednesday, league...
Help could be on the way for the Celtics. After failing to make a move prior to the NBA trade deadline and then learning on Monday that Jermaine O'Neal will be sidelined for the remainder of the season, the C's could use some depth, particularly in the frontcourt. It looks like the Celtics could be turning to free agency in order to add that depth. Head coach Doc Rivers said...

Please no. This former Laker sucked when he was getting clowned in the 2008 finals by the Celtics. Now he's a shell of his limited former self. Plus he's always injured and he has a bad ticker. Let the...
Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
“It’ll be fun,” said coach Doc Rivers, perhaps speaking more in the hopeful than definitive sense. “We have a chance to catch Atlanta, have a chance to put room (between themselves and) Milwaukee and...

The Nuggets have waived Ronny Turiaf.
Ever wondered why the Denver Nuggets traded away Nene? It's for this guy: Wilson Chandler. The Nuggets freed up some cap space to sign the forward to a five-year, $37 million deal. Chandler played overseas in China during the lockout, and had to continue playing there due to the contract negotiations. He played solid, averaging 27 points and twelve rebounds per game. It seemed...
The trade deadline has passed, but another big transaction deadline is coming up this week. That's the deadline to sign players and have them be eligible to make a postseason roster. The Spurs have reportedly found their back up point guard, but still have room for at least one more player (two if they don't sign Eric Dawson for the rest of the season). In the last...
Here's an update on the Celtics pursuit of a power forward/center. Alex Kennedy of Hoopsworld throws Josh Powell's name into the mix:
The Boston Celtics and Phoenix Suns are among the teams expressing interest in unrestricted free agent Josh Powell, according to sources close to the situation. The 29-year-old signed in China during the lockout, but now he’s back in...
Boston Celtics forward-center Jermaine O'Neal will have surgery on his left wrist and miss the remainder of the season.
O'Neal, in his 16th NBA season, already has missed 13 games with the sprained wrist. Celtics spokesman Jeff Twiss says no date has been set for the surgery.
The 33-year-old O'Neal has averaged 5.0 points and 5.4 rebounds in 25 games, including 24 starts...
The Celtics need a big man more than Tayshaun Prince needs a key to the weight room. But keep in mind: the buyout/free agent market for big men is normally more Mikki Moore than P.J. Brown.Also, the Celtics would need to release somebody in order to open a roster spot.
