For the Russian Rockefeller, that is a monetary flip from a bag of dimes.
Another Mannix tweet:
Exec: "Detroit will agree, they want to get out of Rip's deal. They can't get anything for him."
Makes sense. New owner with less baggage and plays to the flexibility that more will be forthcoming.
I disagree that Rip was unmovable. But small opportunities can provide big openings. I only hope that JD learned something from this.
Thank you, Mr. Rose.
"Side note to big NJ- Den trade. It will be hard to pull off logistically. Nets would only have 5 players until traded players pass physicals" - Chad Ford, ESPN insider, via Twitter.
who are you calling spellcheck?
I believe that's Afalalalo
if Joe's a good GM, he'll get us back Affflallo for a 65m deal over 3 years.
I personally want Marc Gasol or DeAndre Jordan to take care of the Piston's middle in the upcoming years.!
Jordan will stay in the West. How many Texas teams are there?
Marc Gasol will gladly join his brother. Some things never change.
I don't see this as a trade to get cap room to sign another player down the line (though it very well may be), I see this as a the second part of the Ben Gordon signing. It may have taken a year and a half, but we finally get to give the player we overpaid for a chance.
The owner will not be happy until he has a superstar on the team. I do not think he cares about the rest of the team.

If this NJ-Det-Den deal happens - and there's a good chance of that - Nets become Pistons had they drafted Melo instead of Darko. But older.
You are hedging.
Perhaps we have all been there. Kinda like having a dream becoming another third supplement. You have both hands dripping from a delightful addition of wanting those cones of ice cream...just being there, but, perhaps not of wanting choice. Now someone thrust you a third and your most favorite dream cone of flavor. What do you do? Now the devil says that a zero-sum game exist: drop all or take only what you have long desired. Your pick?
You are hedging.
I see that Bucher still has much more love for Detroit.
Your move, jayborne.
is this for real?
because of I'm seeing Billups and Melo playing for Denver at the moment...
I think this deal hinges on whether Dajuan Summers wants to be a Net or not.
Bucher forgets that we had Big Ben in his prime... one of the best defensive players of a generation.
Nuggets close to sending Carmelo Anthony to Nets in blockbuster deal - NBA - SI.com
Billups, Rip, Melo and Lopez are going to make life interesting in the East - but not THAT interesting. And for the future, building a team with an overpaid max player on your roster, is really difficult. Melo is the posterboy for a player who shouldn't be maxed.
Man, there are a crap-ton of rumors going around about this deal...
