    This is a good trade for the Bucks. I feel sorry for Bogut. If he ever comes back from injury, he'd be wasted at GS.

    A healthy Bogut would work great with Monroe btw.

    I saw the surge in talent for the Bucks also, but since we're dealing with JD............just dumping contracts woulda made me happy.

    You just don't give away assets.

    Udoh was drafted ahead of Monroe I believe. A lot more raw, so could easily be a later bloomer.

    Apparently the Nets and Blazers have agreed in principle to this:

    Nets sending Okur, Shawne Williams and a top-3 protected 2012 first rounder to Portland for Gerald Wallace.

    That means the Nets are preparing for a Brooklyn uprising and plan on keeping Deron and making that run at DHoward this summer if they can't swap for him today...

    Looks like long relationship between fish and Kobe are over.....so who will get their sixth ring first Fisher or Kobe?.....I am thinking Fisher retires after the season, and hangs out at the Laker practice facility in the fall trying to sign on at the minimum.. I guess the trade was the result of the other trade below:

    The
    BREAKING NEWS: #Cavs trade Ramon Sessions, Christian Eyenga to Lakers for Luke Walton and Lakers' #1 pick (top 14 protected) in 2012 draft.

    Looks like it. But, that's not a bad trade for the Blazers. Camby is nearing the end of his career. They get two young kids that plus the 2012 pick for him. All those contracts are expiring anyways. In essence, they got a 2012 second rounder and about $2M salary relief. I'd say the Blazers got the better end of that deal there.

    I guess so. Camby may be nearing the end of his career, but Thabeet isn't really nearing a career at all. I don't know too much about Johnny Flynn, other than his stats say he puts up unimpressive numbers in short minutes.

    Feels like Portland is rebuilding. As a resident of the Northwesterner, and a fan of Portland by proxy, it's a bit disappointing. It's seemed like they were "one piece away" for the last couple of seasons. Now it feels like they are LeMarcus Aldridge and Nick Batum.

    Looks like they are cleaning house at the coaching level too.

    The Blazers got screwed with injuries over the past 5 years. They could have been somebody...
