The Nets are coming off of a 2014-2014 season filled with ups and downs.

After knocking out the Toronto Raptors in game seven of the first round, the Nets fell to the Miami Heat in just five...

Wizards look for ways to replace Trevor Ariza

Two years ago, you wouldn't dare to dream up a scenario in which Paul Pierce chose to sign with the Washington Wizards in free agency. Despite overhauling an entire roster, the Wizards hadn't rid themselves of a losing culture.

Paul Pierce looks completely out of place in his Wizards uniform

Paul Pierce is currently on the Washington Wizards roster, but there were two small problems with that. 1. Derek Jeter and the Yankees weren’t playing the Nationals and 2. Pierce obviously cares nothing about the Wizards who are actually signing his paycheck. Pierce showed up to Fenway Park dressed in full Celtics gear to say goodbye to Derek Jeter. I wonder how the Wizards front...

Wizards bringing something new to training camp: expectations

  It has been a while since the Washington Wizards opened training camp as one of the hunted rather than a hunter, as a team expected to make the playoffs rather than one destined to pick up the ''lottery-bound'' label before the All-Star break. Even so, the men who have overseen the turnaround were cautious more than bullish as they sat side-by-side before reporters...

Billy King on why Paul Pierce left Brooklyn

The Nets had every opportunity to re-sign free agent Paul Pierce. They owned his full Bird rights, meaning that they could sign him for any amount up to the maximum salary, even though they were over the cap and into ludicrous luxury-tax territory. They had the means, in the form of a billionaire owner who'd free-wheeled his way into three players on their maximum contracts....

Truth looking svelte as always as camp approaches
