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:

  • You can follow all of our updates about your favorite teams or players on your iPhone or iPad using the Hoops Rumors app.
  • As the regular season winds down, many teams are looking ahead to free agency. Our 2014 Free Agent Power Rankings list the top 10 free agents for the summer ahead, and you can find a complete list here. We’ve also begun to go in depth with our Free Agent Stock Watch series.
  • We keep an eye on the more distant future with a list of 2015 free agents, and we’ve got the present covered, too, as we track players who could help a team down the stretch this season with a list of current free agents.
  • Our list of 2013/14 roster counts is a convenient tool for keeping tabs on how many players your favorite NBA team is carrying and how many guaranteed contracts are on each club’s books.
  • If your favorite team has a better chance at Andrew Wiggins, Jabari Parker or Joel Embiid than a playoff berth, be sure to follow our reverse standings, which are updated daily to reflect the projected 2014 draft order.
  • Our Prospect Profile series examines the next wave of NBA players in detail, highlighting their strengths and weaknesses and handicapping when they’ll hear their names called on draft night.
  • We’ve also listed the key dates for underclassmen thinking of declaring for the draft, and we’re compiling a running list of those who’ve announced their intentions to do so.
  • We’re keeping tabs on this season’s D-League assignments right here.
  • Our agency database is a handy reference point for determining the representation for virtually every NBA player.
  • Using our 10-day contract tracker, you can find any 10-day contract signed since the 2006/07 season, and 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 new Hoops Rumors Featured Feedback posts.
  • On Mondays at 4:00pm CT, I answer reader questions in a live chat. You can check out transcripts of our past live discussions here.
  • Our list of outstanding traded player exceptions is updated whenever a trade exception is created, used or expires.
  • We’re tracking each team’s use of the amnesty clause. Our complete table shows which clubs have used the amnesty clause and which will have it available in the summer.
  • The Hoops Rumors glossary helps explain some of the more complex concepts in the NBA’s collective bargaining agreement.
  • 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 explained a link between team options and restricted free agency, detailed how the trade deadline deals worked financially, and looked at teams with dead money already on the books for 2014/15.
