    Sadly, FIBA didn't care about appealing to Canada when they gave Finland a wildcard spot.



    Hate to break it to you, but the Olympics (specifically, the International Olympic Committee) is a...

    They're deepest at point guard and Wall is the worst shooter amongst the group. He also didn't play great during the scrimmage on Friday.

    On the bright side, DD survived the first round of cuts!

    Fair points. Plumlee over Cousins wouldn't surprise me, but I figured Coach K would want Cousins for his bulk (even though Plumlee is a Duke guy). I think Faried and Korver will make it for that...

    Imo, 10/12 positions seem set:

    Davis / Cousins
    Durant / Faried
    Thompson / Korver
    Harden
    Curry / Rose / Irving

    Team USA will need to pick another wing from Parsons, DeMar, Hayward, Beal to...

    Agree with OP's premis. Denver may want to shed salary after their disappointing season. They'll have Gallanari back next year, which could make Wilson Chandler expendable. Jared Dudley has fallen...

    I can't wait for the post-game mind games. Casey: "We expected the refs to favour Brooklyn. It's another obstacle we have to overcome."

    Couldn't agree more! Very good analysis.

    Call me naive, but I don't think the refs will have any bias. Like octothorp alluded to, both teams are very apt at drawing fouls (7th and 8th since Jan 1...

    I couldn't agree more. Now is the time to see what they have at the end of the bench (Fields, De Colo, etc.) Especially since Salmons has been terrible at the end of back-to-backs; I fear the playoff...

    GV has been playing better, likely due to getting more comfortable coming off the bench, health etc. (as you or someone else predicted). I was never taking anything away from him as a player. He's an...

    This is true, especially if Arthur picks up his player option. Plus, the Raps have a TPE from the Gay transaction, so they wouldn't have to match salaries.

    Mozgov and Dudley are two fits I like,...

    All three will be unrestricted free agents this summer, so the Raptors can sign them outright using the MLE money they have available. The only issue for me would be if they want more than one year....

    He can also join Val in the great outdoors ... Maybe OldSkoolCool is right about Kaman

    Not in love with Kaman either (he can score, but is a negative on defense). I wouldn't mind someone like Aaron Gray instead. He's not the most talented free agent available, but embraces his role and...

    Great thread idea! This is what GM Jack Bauer would do:

    The Draft
    Explore trading up if a potential stud such as Vonleh or Ennis falls. Last year the Jazz traded for Trey Burke (#9) by giving up...

    I don't know if Hansborough could guard small-ball fours such as Lebron or Pierce, but I agree with your premise. I wanted Casey to give Tyler more minutes against the Heat on Monday. Maybe he could...

    noob question: are the Raps defending the pick & role differently? Looks like Val is hedging. Don't they usually defend the p&r with the big sagging back?

    I think what he's suggesting is trading Lin/Asik to a team that has the necessary cap space to absorb their salary/salaries entirely (e.g., How GSW made room for Iggy last summer). However, trading...

    Agree, I was assuming the cap would go up to $62.9 in my initial post. You're right, if it doesn't go up that much, it is unlikely the Rockets can land Lowry outside of a S&T.

    I did a quick...

    Good point!

    The Rockets have approx $63m on the books next year. If they get rid of their non guaranteed contracts (except for Beverly), and accounting for their draft pick (25th overall right now), their salary...

    That's a very good comparison. I think Gay is a slightly better defender and Maggette was better at attacking/getting to the line. But they are very similar players.
  23. They may even have to include an asset (first...

    They may even have to include an asset (first round pick, young player etc.) to move Lin. He'll be receiving his balloon payment next year. Asik, I think, still has some value.
  24. If the Rockets move just one of Asik/Lin and,...

    If the Rockets move just one of Asik/Lin and, say, Garcia's minimum contract, they will have enough cap room to make a run at Lowry.
  25. Lowry doesn't seem like the kind of guy who would...

    Lowry doesn't seem like the kind of guy who would want to go back to a team that traded him, despite expressing regret for not gelling with McHale. Hopefully, he stays loyal to Toronto; I'm sure...
