Dallas keeps striking out on free agents, but that doesn't seem to matter in the standings

espn.go.com — Zach Lowe, ESPN Senior Writer In one of their first healthy practices, the Dallas Mavericks were running through a set when Zaza Pachulia noticed the few holdover players from last year's Mavs seemed confused. "I started making fun of them," Pachulia told ESPN.com. "I was like, 'You ran this last year, right?'

Sam Hinkie stands by his past as Philly looks to jump start its future

espn.go.com — Zach Lowe, ESPN Senior Writer Sam Hinkie, the Sixers besieged GM, wonders how the last six weeks might have unfolded had Kendall Marshall been healthy -- whether Philly would have won more games, stayed off TMZ, and avoided a shocking, league-brokered internal shake-up. Marshall's four-year, $8 million deal -- partially guaranteed, of course!

Running around the league as the NBA hits the quarter mark

espn.go.com — Zach Lowe, ESPN Senior Writer In a league of shorter contracts and constant roster turnover, it can take half a season for a team to understand basic things about itself -- such as which players should share the floor. As we blow past the quarter pole of the NBA season, let's bounce around some teams searching for lineup magic.

How much patience will Sixer fans and the NBA have for 'The Process'?

espn.go.com — Nope. Twelve teams voted with the Sixers, enough to derail the proposal. The Thunder led a a behind-the-scenes lobbying effort from small-market teams who feared the revamped lottery would erase their best path toward acquiring a star: tanking for a high draft pick.

After a lost decade or so, the Knicks find themselves on the right path

espn.go.com — Zach Lowe, ESPN Senior Writer Carmelo Anthony was at the Knicks practice facility, rehabbing from knee surgery, when a skinny teenager from Latvia arrived for a pre-draft workout. Anthony watched Kristaps Porzingis shoot, and turned to Steve Mills, the Knicks GM, with a question, Mills recalled in a chat with ESPN.com last week: "Do you think we may draft this kid?"

Is the small-ball dominance of Golden State a blip or a trend?

espn.go.com — Zach Lowe, ESPN Senior Writer In the first game of the season, with the Hawks down big in the fourth quarter, coach Mike Budenholzer juiced the offense by going as small as he dares: Paul Millsap at center with Mike Scott at power forward. And it worked!

Kemba Walker on the legacy of his rookie year, dunking, dancing and Big Al's jeans

espn.go.com — Zach Lowe, ESPN Senior Writer Kemba Walker has faced a lot of the NBA's harshest realities over his first five seasons in Charlotte. He was drafted into a lockout, and once that ordeal ended, he suited up for perhaps the worst single-season in NBA history -- the tanktastic 2011-12 Charlotte Bobcats, who finished 7-59.

The long, hard road to redemption plan in Minnesota is starting to make sense

espn.go.com — MINNEAPOLIS -- Long after the Timberwolves' locker room had mostly emptied Tuesday night following a loss to the Hornets, a couple of stray teammates spotted Karl-Anthony Towns sitting in his chair, head bowed, muttering about something gone wrong. It was unclear why Towns was so frustrated.
