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.



Both very solid additions imo.

Hill has been one of my favorite players for 20 years. A shame what happened to his career.

Portland matches offer on Batum. He'll stay a blazer.

Bulls signed Hinrich, close to signing Nazr Mohammed, and close to trading for Marco Belinelli

Celtics complete sign in trade for Courtney Lee. That gives them two good guards to replace Allen, also while Bradley gets healthy from shoulder injuries.

T-Wolves are going to be very interesting this year.

Don't know what to think about this. I would have loved him 5 years ago or so. We are wasting all our money on question marks, and Rubio may not get back to form this year. I agree, should be very interesting how things play out.

I would have felt better about it at 2/$14m

The trade sends Lopez and Hakim Warrick from Phoenix to New Orleans; Wesley Johnson, Brad Miller’s expiring contract and plus a lottery-protected first-round draft pick goes to the Suns; and the Timberwolves get Jerome Dyson and two future second-round draft picks from New Orleans. That creates enough cap space for Minnesota to sign Andrei Kirilenko to a two-year, $20 million contract. That is done now as well.


Weird, because I thought Brad Miller announced his retirement like a month or two before the season ended. I mean if a team is willing to pay him his millions for sitting on a bench, then why the hell not, postpone it for another year.

The move also makes N.O. a pretty solid young team, definitely can see this team possibly squeaking into the playoffs within a year or two.

I'm just glad it's over now and we don't have to hear about it constantly on ESPN.

I think the Howard trade was good for all the teams involved. I'd guess Denver will probably try and trade Wilson Chandler now they have Iggy.

Id play Iggy at SG and leave Chandler at SF
