Hoops Rumors Features

Hoops Rumors passes along the latest news and rumors on NBA player movement 365 days a year, but those aren’t the only updates you’ll see on the site. On our right sidebar, you’ll find a number of additional features and featured posts. Here’s a rundown of a few of them:

  • The new Trade Rumors App lets you stay on top of all of the rumors wherever you go. The App has customizable feeds that let you filter the news from Hoops Rumors and our sister sites MLB Trade Rumors and Pro Football Rumors. Versions are available for both iOS and Android. Best of all, it’s free!
  • We’re keeping track of the players eligible for free agency in 2015 as the ability for LeBron JamesKevin LoveRajon Rondo, Marc Gasol and others to hit the market next year begins to affect the landscape of the league.
  • Kevin Durant isn’t the only player set for free agency in 2016. Many NBA front offices are already scoping out the full class of 2016 free agents.
  • Our agency database is a handy reference point for determining the representation for virtually every NBA player.
  • Several NBA teams can pay no more than the minimum salary to any free agent signee. Our updated list identifies these clubs.
  • We’re about midway through our look at how each of the NBA’s 30 teams fared during the offseason with our Offseason In Review series. Every franchise receives in-depth treatment on the complete scope of the offseason, from the draft, through free agency, and up to the October 31st rookie scale extension deadline.
  • Teams are already pivoting their focus toward the trade deadline, but many players remain ineligible to be traded for several more weeks. Here’s the date that each offseason acquisition may be traded.
  • Our list of outstanding traded player exceptions is updated whenever a trade exception is created, used or expires.
  • Some teams have more flexibility than others, and our roster counts show which of them have room beneath the 15-man maximum. It also lets you see which players have non-guaranteed salary, making them more vulnerable should their teams look to make a move.
  • Our Rookie Scale Team Option Tracker is a team-by-team recap of every player whose 2015/16 rookie scale team option was either exercised or declined before the October 31st deadline.
  • Eddie Scarito is looking back on notable trades from the past several years to see how they’ve panned out over time. He recently examined the deals that sent Dwight Howard to the Lakers, Deron Williams to the Nets, and Kevin Garnett to the Celtics.
  • Using our 10-day contract tracker, you can find any 10-day contract signed this year or in any season since the 2006/07. You can sort by player, team, year and other variables.
  • We give you a turn in the spotlight when we showcase the best reader comments with our Hoops Rumors Featured Feedback posts.
  • On Wednesdays at 3:00pm CT, I answer reader questions in a live chat. You can check out transcripts of our past discussions here.
  • We’re tracking each team’s use of the amnesty clause. Our complete table shows which clubs have used the provision and which still have it available.
  • The Hoops Rumors glossary helps explain some of the more complex concepts in the NBA’s collective bargaining agreement. Recently, I added an entry on D-League assignments, which should continue to grow in frequency this season.
  • We’ll be keeping track of each of those D-League assignments and recalls throughout the year, categorizing them by team.
  • Zach Links rounds up the best of the blogosphere with Hoops Links on Sundays.
  • If you’re looking to catch up, our Week in Review posts compile the top news and rumors from the past seven days, while our Hoops Rumors Originals posts recap the site’s original content for the week. Both roundups are published every Sunday.
  • Be sure to check out the Featured Posts section on the right sidebar for more original pieces from the Hoops Rumors writing team. Recently, we debuted the Hoops Rumors 2015 Free Agent Power Rankings, spoke with Knicks D-League assistant coach and former Bulls guard Craig Hodges, and examined the more than $450MM handed out in rookie scale extensions this year.
