i agree but D12 is searching for ways to go to the Nets maybe if we can get DWill then D12 will come too or DA and Doc talk to him which I think they already did last all star games.

Shorty=CP3. even D12 might not move at all.

it just shows that the main problem was GMs of various teams lack knowledge in basketball business to run a team. Another example is Dell Demps, sure he got the best players in a blockbuster deal but will cost them a large payroll which a small market team cannot finance in a year or two. We're lucky with Danny because he has a business sense keeping the team profitable, an eye for talent, knows how to weigh risk and reward building a team.

more like appeasing Rondo because of the failed attempt to ship him out.

boston still need to add more players. most likely a third team. i hope they can do it we will get 5 players scoring double digits if it happens.

because Orlando will only trade Howard for Bynum. A center for another center.

i think this is what they are doing because Stern will still veto Paul to Lakers if Hornets will still assume a overly large payroll. I will not be shocked if they shopped Okafor next. Demps will be extremely busy in a few days. I hope Danny will also go after Rip Hamilton.

they say the other player is Sasha Pavlovic. I wonder who will they get to back up Ray Allen.

Howard is looking to go to NJ to team up with Daeron Williams.

we'll see what will they come up. likelihood of CP3 going to lakers is high, anyway.

(b) Take some amount of salary back from the Hornets so they're not assuming added payroll. I do not know if they can do this but the previous deal will definitely ruin the hornets already messed up finances. Dell Demps definitely took the best player trade option available but he did not consider how much it will cost the hornets financially or he does not know a thing about number crunching. Business wise, Stern made the right call saving the hornets from another future financial meltdown. Lakers had to find another way that is also fair in the books for the hornets. The Celtics offer of Rondo(10M) and Green(6M) matches CP3's(16M) salary hence its a financially viable trade(it will not burden Hornet's finances further losses because they have been losing money for some time now) but basketball-wise for Dell it is not good trade. If the Lakers can find a way like the Celtics offer or better then they probably will have CP3.

oohhh oj mayo. yeah, its a pipe dream but u will never know. i wonder if they can sign jamal crawford.

I agree with you. other teams had to give up a lot to get a player they want. good thing this was stopped, because the way i see it the hornets will just be in another financial trouble if it gone through.

if you read Dan Gilbert's email the trade was not a fair trade business-wise and basketball-wise. The big loser in this deal is actually the rockets(they lose their 2 best players) and hornets(they will exceed the salary cap and bear a huge luxury tax, for a small market team that is a fast way sink your own ship) while lakers will get another star player, reduced their salary expenditures, luxury-tax expenditures, and had a shot of trading Bynum for Howard now. Basically what he is saying is on paper it looks a fair deal but when you scrutinize it closely the deal will not favor the hornets and rockets at all!
