Raptors extend tenders to Vasquez, Patterson 6/28 1:22PM
Toronto, ON (Sportsbooks.com) - Guard Greivis Vasquez and forward Patrick Patterson, two key pieces to the Toronto Raptors' run to an Atlantic Division title in 2013-14, were both given qualifying offers by the team on Saturday. By doing so, the Raptors retain the right to match ...
Indiana Pacers 2014 Draft Report Card 6/27 8:42PM
(Sportsbooks.com) - The Indiana Pacers traded their first-round pick to the Phoenix Suns for Luis Scola. It's hard to imagine the 27th pick would make a huge splash on the Pacers next season at least. They're in win-now mode and their biggest decision regards Lance Stephenson in free ...
Houston Rockets 2014 Draft Report Card 6/27 8:25PM
(Sportsbooks.com) - The Houston Rockets don't care about the draft at this point. Their primary goal this offseason is to shed as much salary as possible to sign gigantic names. This summer, those names are LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony. Those aren't delusions of grandeur. They ...
Dallas Mavericks 2014 Draft Report Card 6/27 7:11PM
(Sportsbooks.com) - The Dallas Mavericks made no draft choices on Thursday, but pulled the trigger on the biggest trade yet this offseason. They re-acquired Tyson Chandler three years after foolishly letting him walk in free agency. Raymond Felton also came from New York as the Mavs sen...
Cleveland Cavaliers 2014 Draft Report Card 6/27 7:02PM
(Sportsbooks.com) - The Cavaliers couldn't go wrong at No. 1, unlike last year, when they did. Wiggins has the most upside of anyone other than Kansas teammate Joel Embiid. He walks into the NBA as a plus-defender and his athleticism is preposterous. He deserved to the be the No. 1 p...
Sacramento Kings 2014 Draft Report Card 6/27 6:45PM
(Sportsbooks.com) - The Sacramento Kings got one of the draft's best shooters in Stauskas. Every team needs a shooter and Stauskas is much more than that. He's a pretty good athlete and he strikes me as the type who will get better at the next level. I like that Stauskas ...
New Orleans Pelicans 2014 Draft Report Card 6/27 6:37PM
(Sportsbooks.com) - The New Orleans Pelicans gave up their first-round pick this year for Jrue Holiday last year. Holiday didn't play close to a full season, so it's hard to fall in love with how draft night went on Thursday. They did trade last year's second-rounder, Pierre Jackso...
Toronto Raptors 2014 Draft Report Card 6/27 6:20PM
(Sportsbooks.com) - Draft night was a huge head-scratcher for the Raptors. They targeted Tyler Ennis as insurance if both Kyle Lowry and Greivis Vasquez left via free agency. He went 18th to the Phoenix Suns, so Toronto swept up Caboclo. There isn't much information out there on t...
Utah Jazz 2014 Draft Report Card 6/27 4:26PM
(Sportsbooks.com) - The Utah Jazz never got a chance at their prize, Jabari Parker, but they did walk out of the draft with a potential star and a potential steal. Exum was never supposed to slip to fifth, so when he did, the Jazz were poised to pounce. They can pair him with i...
Memphis Grizzlies 2014 Draft Report Card 6/27 3:50PM
(Sportsbooks.com) - This draft didn't light my world on fire. Adams is a good scorer, but a borderline-terrible athlete. Granted, if you put the ball in the bucket, you don't need to be a triathlete, but Adams will have trouble keeping up with two guards in this league. Stokes may be a ...
Chicago Bulls 2014 Draft Report Card 6/27 3:42PM
(Sportsbooks.com) - The Chicago Bulls are poised for a big offseason, and they started that process emphatically by trading for Creighton offensive machine, Doug McDermott. The Bulls packaged the 16th and 19th picks for McDermott. He is the most offensively polished player...
Miami Heat 2014 Draft Report Card 6/27 3:34PM
(Sportsbooks.com) - LeBron James wanted Shabazz Napier. Consequently, the Miami Heat went out and traded for Shabazz Napier. It can't be a coincidence that the man James tweeted about, the leader of the national champion UConn Huskies, will be in a Heat uniform next season. Napier can ...
Charlotte Hornets 2014 Draft Report Card 6/27 3:26PM
(Sportsbooks.com) - Michael Jordan had a good draft night. It was probably his best since his own selection back in 1984. After several massive duds under his watch (Kwame Brown/Adam Morrison), Jordan received some great fortune on Thursday. Indiana's Vonleh slid all the way to ninth ...
Milwaukee Bucks 2014 Draft Report Card 6/27 3:18PM
(Sportsbooks.com) - The Milwaukee Bucks reminded me of a wealthy man sitting with his feet up, smoking a cigar, sipping scotch and laughing about his riches. The Bucks were content to wait out the Cleveland Cavaliers at No. 1, but Milwaukee wanted Parker. Parker wanted to go ...
Brooklyn Nets 2014 Draft Report Card 6/27 3:10PM
(Sportsbooks.com) - The Brooklyn Nets went into Thursday's draft with no picks. They left with three second-rounders who have an outside chance of being rotation players. Brown had a good career at Oklahoma State, but may have trouble with the size of NBA two guards. Thames i...
Boston Celtics 2014 Draft Report Card 6/27 3:02PM
(Sportsbooks.com) - The Boston Celtics built themselves a new backcourt on Thursday. Don't they have an All-Star at one of those spots already? The C's tabbed Marcus Smart sixth, which is about where he should've gone talent-wise. What made this interesting is, Boston has Rajon R...
Minnesota Timberwolves 2014 Draft Report Card 6/27 2:54PM
(Sportsbooks.com) - LaVine's intro to the Minnesota Timberwolves wasn't the warming moment Flip Saunders probably wanted. Caught on camera uttering a profanity after his name was announced, LaVine backtracked and admitted it wasn't wise, but it wasn't said out of displeasure in going...
Atlanta Hawks 2014 Draft Report Card 6/27 2:38PM
(Sportsbooks.com) - The Atlanta Hawks got one of the most NBA-ready players in the draft in Adreian Payne, whose only crime is that he's 23. Most front- office brass don't want to attach themselves to someone that old. That's the reason the Michigan State product went 15 instead of mu...
Report: Grizzlies, Randolph agree to extension 6/27 2:21PM
Memphis, TN (Sportsbooks.com) - The Memphis Grizzlies have reportedly re- signed forward Zach Randolph to a two-year extension. According to The Commercial Appeal, citing Randolph's agent, the club picked up the $16.5 million option for the 2014-15 season and agreed to a two-year ...
