    I think we'll stand pat after Joe realizes he doesn't have the basketballs to make draft-day trades.

    Oh he has "basketballs" but I have heard two different times now that he feels very strongly that 1-2 players are going to fall to him where we are. I hope one is Hibbert but I doubt it.

    Both Brand and Maggette are (according to RealGM)...


    ...in the last non-exercisable year of his contract and cannot be traded. However, next season is currently an early termination option and if is not exercised, then the player can be traded.

    Which I think means that the players have until July 1st to opt out of their current contracts. If they do, then they're free agents and the Clips have no rights. If they do not, then the Clips retain their rights and can trade them after July 1st.


    BTW, generally I get interpretations of the CBA right about 20% of the time.

    Your % just went up.

    Technically it'll be the 9th when the trades can become official.

    1st round over and Portland has about drafted every player out there! But no trades by the Pistons.

    I believe the shake-up will come in the form of Amir or Max becoming a permanent starter, and the playing of the bench (over the starters at time) we've always split the MLE in previous years (Nazr panic move excluded). We need to take the whole MLE and throw it at
    Artest,Magette, a player of that sort.

    I think Curry's impact on the ego of this team is being underestimated.

    And honestly, if every trade we come across is a lateral move or not a clear upgrade, what's the point? Ride it out till the trade deadline and see what happens.

    I really believed something big was going to happen last night. Kind of dissapointing.

    We used our MLE to get Billups. That was a pretty good move.. Don't you think??

    If you look at the way Dumars operates, it always appears that he is silently lurking in the background, in the darkroom making moves that even the media don't see coming.

    That appears to be Joe D's style.[quote G ]

    Dude, not even the CIA sniffed this one.

    He's just not a sucker. He doesn't get "deal fever" like a lot of GM's.

    Denver called him and then he negotiated from a position of strength. JD doesn't show his cards, he's willing to say no, and he always seems to avoid making moves that can paint him into a corner financially.

    He's playing chess.

    But why would Denver do this? I need to see what was going on with Karl and the Nuggs.
