that isn't a good thing. You guys will only have him for a year then your team will be in major shambles.

The only teams I see him resigning with are the Nets(because he said), ATL(good friends with Josh Smith and from ATL) and Lakers(Hollywood).

We have been in shambles for awhile now.

This would be a god send because it would actually give us a shot at a legitimate playoff run

I was getting impatient, but the Pacers dumped Collison and Dahntay Jones, and picked up Augustin and Gerald Green.

Not a bad couple of days.

Augustin is a solid PG, even has the experience of starting, so definitely a good signing.

the team you would have would look exactly like the Magic. I think you'd get killed in a Western Conference playoffs. You would only have a 1 year run then back to square 1.

Scola and dwight I think could be a good duo.

Much like bynum and gasol. Except imo Scola is a better player then gasol.

I just want a superstar in Houston

A million times this.

Scola and Lowry would have me very excited about the future

Yeah the Scola thing was their way of going all in, in trying to land Howard. Which I thought was odd, because the Magic also lost Ryan Anderson, so you'd think Scola would be a big part of an attempt of a deal.

Bobcats won the wavier claim on Haywood.


He is a colossal disappointment. All the talent to get 10/10/2 nightly and be a solid defensive presence and he constantly underachieves.

Kyrie Irving broke his hand, though he is expected to be ready for training camp

Jason Kidd gets DUI after crashing into a telephone pole. He must have realized that he will have to play 35 min a night with Melo since the Knicks most likely wont match Lin's offer sheet and decided to attempt to break his contract with a DUI

Irving is a moron for doing that.

Knicks traded for Felton a few days ago, he's back in NY where he played his best ball, before being traded in the Melo deal.

He played his best ball in D'Antoni's up tempo system. Now its more iso's for Melo and half court game which isnt really Felton's strong suit.

We call Felton "Cupcake" around here because he's so soft. I would have taken an eye booger in return just to get him the hell out

wow what a stupid move. I don't know what else JJ could have done last year in a new system with no training camp in his 3rd season. Maybe shoot a better % but he is a solid defensive player that fits Casey's system very well. They traded the wrong Johnson. I wish JJ all the best in Sacramento.

With Calderon most likely out the door too, I will have to find a new favourite Raptor to cheer for

LANDRY FIELDS FTW!!

I remember when Felton kicked Knight out of the starting PG back when the Bobcats could win 20 games. He may be a soft defender but he can rack up steals quite easily

Mayo is a good signing and letting go of Lin is hard to tell. Lin exploded last year but he wasn't given an entire season to see what he's really made of.

A few more Amnestied players,

Clippers - Ryan Gomes

Nuggets - Birdman Anderson

Wizards - Anthony Blatche


Jerry Stackhouse to Brooklyn Nets

Kings signed Aaron Brooks 2yr deal avg. of 3.3M

Grant Hill to Clippers, surprised by that one, thought for sure he was going to the other L.A team. Read Clips have a coach he was close with on the Suns.

Lakers just signed Antawn Jamison, really good move by L.A.. I was shocked he wasn't traded at last years trade deadline.
