    That intro was practically unreadable. Horrible journalism. Which made me discount anything the writer said after that.

    I agree, then calling Max a fierce rebounder made me close the tab

    If Maxiell and Wilcox are truly on the trade block, does that mean the Pistons are now in the LeBron Sweepstakes?

    Sure, sure, but here's some insight...

    It’s a deep draft in terms of guys who can help you, but there are going to be some guys taken high who don’t perform and some taken low who do

    If I were Denver...I would make that trade, as Melo will not take you to the promised land.

    Yeah, but they would rather trade him and get something back then possibly have him leave after this year.

    so in denver they must be sure that melo does not want an extension, right?

    in this case - I do not see that other GMs want to invest seriously for " one year project" - ready to give something for but not actually very much.

    I think he had to have signed an extension by July 1. He doesn't appear to have done that.

    This is the same situation as AI with us. We traded Billups for him as an expiring contract, then we didn't end up re-signing him - therefore we effectively ended up with nothing.

    erm sorry, we ended up with Capp Spayce.

    Maybe Melo sees Denver as a sinking ship and would prefer to go somewhere else? Billups is in the twilight of his career, K-Mart is nearly done, JR Smith is in the last year of his contract...

    I think it's a just a rumor. Supposedly Denver doesn't want to go through the drama that the Cavs and Raptors are facing with their stars possibly leaving and getting nothing in return. But that's what everybody said the Raptors were leaning towards trading Bosh for the last two seasons and look how that turned out.
