    Does anyone not think MU would have used this if he could have got ANYTHING of value for LK?
    MU's track record would likely indicate he did his due diligence. Also remember having an open roster spot will be crucial if big trade deadline moves are made.

    As an example: (THIS IS JUST AN EXAMPLE DON'T COMMENT ON IT'S LIKELIHOOD FFS! OR I PROMISE I WILL E-LOSE IT)

    Rudy Gay goes out at the deadline with a near 18M dollar contract we are likely taking back more than 1 player. Running with 13 or 14 would allow some flexibility in that regard

    Anyways, all the best to LK. It's too bad he was never healthy, when he was he was always entertaining to watch.

    Interesting Doug bemoans the Kleiza move while the lakers and heat actually dump valuable pieces in MWP and MIller.

    Goodbye LK your streakiness was always fun and excruciating to watch. No doubt he'll go play for his country and be Jordan over there.

    He's got a couple of years before JV supplants him as top Lithuanian dog.

    They're probably exploring a Camby trade that doesn't take back a contract. Then you don't need to amnesty Kleiza.

    I think this happened because no one would take klieza and not send back money. This is the only way to guarentee the contract is off the books at the end of the year. If we are at the cap or become a potential luxury team then deadline deals would demand 2nd rounders to absorb this contract for a month because we would be in a position of desperation.

    Im guessing he tried everything to throw this contract into multi-team trades and try and get back anything but wasn't able to.

    Good luck to linas, go be a real player in europe.

    Default Who wanted Kleiza? Nobody.

    I can't access Twitter from where I am but:

    Not surprised Raptors used amnesty provision on Linas Kleiza. I'm told Toronto had been shopping him since trade deadline, but had no takers

    So it's official. Doug Smith is out to lunch again. They should fire him and bring in Matt.
