    From David Aldridge....

    Aldridge: Nuggets have deal in place to ship 'Melo to Nets | NBA.com

    I wonder what they offered in return? Denver is/was trying to build the Pistons team of the mid-2000s! LOL

    I would have let Rip go for a conditional 5th round pick! (yes I know this is the NBA draft and not the NFL) :D

    With Rip's salary we would they would have to give us more than couple of players....I would have taken Ty Lawson and Nene, but no way they would give those two up....maybe a number 1 and the Birdman?? Or a Rip for Kmart??

    Still if Rip's name is in the mix, wonder if we could even be involved in the 4 team deal??

    Fire JoeD right now. He got the chance to get rid of RIP and didn't; he obviously thinks our roster doesn't suck.
