    RealGM is reporting that Earl Boykins will opt out of the last year of his deal in Milwaukee, leaving them with no experienced PGs who are not free agents.

    Boykins option year was worth approx. $3 million. He must believe that this is the time to secure a new long term deal.

    I like Boykins. He's the fastest player on NBA Live for PS2. :MusicBigGrin:

    Yeah, that'll probably be next year.

    I'm finishing my basement right now, so everything is kind of all over the place. I had to move my big screen tv into the living room (Which my wife wasn't too happy about at first. She wanted to spray paint it black to blend in to the decor better. Yeah, um... how about no.) and I don't even have my PS2 hooked up right now. Ever since my daughter was born, I haven't had much down time to play any EA sports. Madden is my favourite.

    The big tv doesn't really bother her in the living room anymore (I bought a nice dark wood unit to help it blend in a bit better. A.K.A. appease the wife), so once the basement is finished, I want to get a new 50" plasma for down there and a PS3.

    She's actually fine with it. Or should I say, she's tired of being not fine with it.

    See, I have a strategy anytime I want to make a large purchase. I start hinting about it for months (or sometimes years, depending on the size, price and degree of resistance of the item) before I actually want to get it. So when the time comes that I actually do want it, she's so completely tired of saying no that she just gives up! :cheerlie-GOAL:

    See, unlike the Pistons organization, I like to plan for the future.:stirthepot:

    Guys who do this have been married a LOOng time.
    They also have nothing to barter with.......:)
    In my marriage, I'd just buy the Plasma. The problem would be to get her to part with some of her money to help pay for it. We make the same salary so financially, we just meet monthly to pay common bills. If either of us wants something, we just buy it........

    I believe that everyone already knows about these, but just to recap:
    The Blazers sent Zach Randolph, Fred Jones and Dan Dickau to the New York Knicks for Channing Frye and Steve Francis. And the Sonics traded Ray Allen to the Boston Celtics for Delonte West, Wally Szczerbiak and the rights to the No. 5 pick, Jeff Green.

    I thought Channing Fry was untouchable. I guess he wasn't.

    The NBA's Charlotte Bobcats waived veteran Brevin Knight today, leaving them without a backup point guard.
    Knight was scheduled to make just over four million dollars next season but had a buyout clause in his contract for 1.5 million.
    Knight started in the team's inaugural season in 2004-2005. But 2005 first-round draft pick Raymond Felton eventually replaced Knight in the starting lineup.
    Now, the Bobcats likely will need to sign another point guard to back up Felton, who averaged 14 points and seven assists last season.
    The 31-year-old Knight averaged 9.1 points and 6.6 assists last season when he was limited to 45 games.

    So after we sign Billups:pray: do we go after Knight, Boykins or train one of those draft picks to be the main backup

    Darko's QO was around $6.8 million. This is merely pre-FA protocol.

    No, I think for once the young guys should be the first backups (Stuckey, Afflalo, Amir, J Max, and one older guy Dice)
