Yes, Scott Skiles is interested in becoming head coach of the Magic after the season. A longtime acquaintance of Skiles' told me that the former franchise favorite who now lives in Mount Dora would listen.
After stops at Phoenix, Chicago and Milwaukee,...

Not to say the Bulls look lost but nobody would be surprised if they added Siri to the roster to make sure they navigate their way to New Orleans in time for Saturday's fourth straight loss.
To be fair, the Bulls haven't lost to the Pelicans yet. We...

Why would you pay extra for something you believe will be available for free?
That appears to be the Pelicans’ thinking as the Bulls dangle unwanted coach Tom Thibodeau.
That also should be any team’s thinking on the matter, so I guess the...

Trade winds have been blowing in the NBA for some time this season.
Magic GM Rob Hennigan is no stranger to making deals. The Magic could use a rim-protecting power forward (who couldn't?) and a go-to wing (Andrew Wiggins, we never knew ye).

The roars were loud and long, their intensity and volume reaching levels once common at Staples Center during Lakers playoff victories and series clinchers and championship celebrations.
The Lakers didn't win an NBA title Sunday. They won a game. One...

"I learned from a franchise that had been where I wanted to go. I will always think of Miami as my second home. Without the experiences I had there, I wouldn’t be able to do what I'm doing today." -- LeBron James, July 11, in his Sports...

As he sat in a folding chair just outside of the locker room at AmericanAirlines Arena, Danny Granger surprisingly did not have the look of someone who had been consistently blindsided.
And yet, how could he possibly have seen so much of this...

Dribbling around with the Bulls at the break . . .
I know the Bucks were missing Andrew Bogut -- gads, the Bucks are always missing Andrew Bogut -- but to give up a triple-double to Joakim Noah in three quarters is embarrassing even for a Milwaukee team....

I think we can understand why John Paxson jumped Vinny Del Negro a couple years ago.
Paxson didn’t like the way the Del Negro was playing Joakim Noah after his injury. The Bulls’ inadequate basketball honcho was worried that the Bulls’...
