  • Raptors look to build on last season, host Pistons (The Associated Press)
    The Toronto Raptors tip-off the 2016-17 season Wednesday night when they host the Detroit Pistons. The Raptors enter the season following their most successful campaign in franchise history. Last year, Toronto set a club record for wins (56), won their third straight Atlantic Division title and advanced to the Eastern Conference finals for the first time in team history.

  • As racial tension simmers, Raptors coach feels for players (The Associated Press)
    When the Toronto Raptors first gathered for training camp, Dwane Casey knew his players wanted to talk about more than basketball. Images of police brutality had gone viral. National anthem protests were spreading.

  • County rejected $384M offer to buy Palace of Auburn Hills (The Associated Press)
    Suburban Detroit officials say they rejected a $384 million offer in June to buy the Palace of Auburn Hills. Oakland County said in a statement Monday to The Detroit News it was ''acting in a fiscally responsible manner on behalf of taxpayers'' when it rejected the proposal that would have allowed the home of the Detroit Pistons to be leased back to the team. The Palace and Pistons are both owned by Tom Gores' Platinum Equity group.

  • Pistons claim Beno Udrih off waivers, release Ray McCallum (The Associated Press)
    AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) -- The Detroit Pistons have claimed guard Beno Udrih off waivers from Miami and released guard Ray McCallum.

  • NBA-National Basketball Association roundup (Reuters)
    Oct 22 (The Sports Xchange) - Guard Kay Felder of the NBA champion Cleveland Cavaliers was placed in the NBA's concussion protocol after taking a blow to the head during Friday's practice. Felder, acquired in a draft night trade and later signed to a three-year, $2.4 million contract by the Cavaliers, averaged 8.8 points in 22.2 minutes during six preseason games. The Horizon League's career assist leader is expected to back up starting point guard Kyrie Irving. Felder will continue to be evaluated and is questionable for Tuesday's season opener against the New York Knicks. ...

  • BDL's 2016-17 Season Previews: Chicago Bulls (Ball Don't Lie)
    The Chicago Bulls made the big, mad coach go away during the 2015 offseason, as they had to. The relationship between the Bulls front office and former coach Tom Thibodeau, due to massive missteps on the part of both sides, was beyond repair. Thibodeau had to go, and while it would have been just as effective to lose the presidential pairing of personnel chiefs John Paxson and Gar Forman along the way, teams can survive with a good-enough roster, sound coaching, and a front office with a series of screwups in its past.

  • It turns out the Knicks bid against themselves for Brandon Jennings (Ball Don't Lie)
    Who is Brandon Jennings to say no to a few extra million dollars? Little about Brandon Jennings’ basketball career has been conventional. Jennings started all 82 games, averaging 15.5 points, 5.7 assists and 3.4 rebounds for a Bucks team that won 46 games and nearly upset the No. 3 seed in the playoffs.

  • BDL's 2016-17 Season Previews: Cleveland Cavaliers (Ball Don't Lie)
    The Cleveland Cavaliers might not have been the kind of team likely to suffer from a championship hangover, anyway. “We’re still pretty much uptight,” James recently said, according to Tom Withers of The Associated Press. As soon as Kevin Durant announced he would join the Golden State Warriors — the team that had just posted a record-setting 73 wins, and the foe the Cavs had just knocked off to win it all — Cleveland had a new mountain to climb, a new dragon to slay, a new quest to complete.

  • BDL's 2016-17 Season Previews: Indiana Pacers (Ball Don't Lie)
    An outsider would be forgiven for seeing the Indiana Pacers’ 2015-16 season as something of a return to normalcy. After narrowly missing out on a postseason berth the previous season as Paul George played only a handful of games, Indiana rebounded with 45 wins, the No. 7 seed in the East, and a top-three ranking in points allowed per 100 possessions. A seven-game elimination at the hands of the Toronto Raptors suggested that the Pacers were not terribly far off from rising back to their former position as top challengers to Whichever Team LeBron James Plays For, albeit...

  • Pistons exercise option on Stanley Johnson through 2017-18 (The Associated Press)
    AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) -- The Detroit Pistons have exercised their team option on forward Stanley Johnson through the 2017-18 season.
