For a short while, it looked like the Czech Republic was going to give Team USA some trouble. But after a bit of a slow start, the U.S. cruised to an 88-67 win. Jayson Tatum took control in the first half, scoring 10 on 4 of 7 shooting (2-for-4 from three). He also had three rebounds, a block and...

On Friday, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reported the Houston Rockets and Eric Gordon agreed to a four-year, $75.6 million extension. According to ESPN ’s Adrian...

As much as the Celtics want both Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum to pan out, it’s only natural for everyone else to compare the two. Tatum generally seems to receive the edge because he’s the more polished player between the two. But Brown showed a lot last year by recovering from his slow start to...

With everything that happened last season and a few fairly important players moving elsewhere, the Celtics don’t seem to be viewed as a contender heading into 2019-20. As much as there’s reason to have reservations about the group, the Celtics still have their two young talents, Jayson Tatum and...

On more than one occasion, Enes Kanter has expressed the Celtics could shock the basketball world in 2019-20. Of course, he’s not going to speak negatively about his new team. But he also doesn’t have to describe the organization as a family, which is exactly what he did on Wednesday during his...

Up until recently, Caris LeVert was set to be one of the more desirable names in an underwhelming 2020 NBA free agency class. But the Nets didn’t want to take any chances with him on the open market, so they came to terms on a three-year extension worth $52.5 million, according to ESPN ’s Adrian...

Team USA concluded its slate of exhibition games on Monday with an 84-68 win over Canada. Not exactly a dominant conclusion offensively before the U.S. heads off to China for the 2019 FIBA World Cup, but Jaylen Brown had a day. He led Team USA with 19 points in 19 minutes on 8 of 11 shooting (1-for...

In two years, Enes Kanter intends to become a United States citizen. When he does, the new Celtics center is thinking about “adding (an) ‘American name,’” as he told TMZ Sports . Kanter hasn’t decided which direction he wants to go in yet, so he’s taking suggestions on Twitter. (What could go wrong...

Following Team USA’s first-ever loss to the Australian national team, USA Basketball has announced its official roster for the 2019 FIBA World Cup. In the end, Kyle Kuzma was the odd man out, not San Antonio’s Derrick White. Though, it wasn’t a performance-based decision. The Lakers forward didn’t...
