    Well Matty D. Looks like we're all forced to join tank nation. Fire Dwane casey and let Bill Bayno be the intern. Lets get this party started!

    I feel really really really bad for DeMar DeRozan tho. All the poor guy wants is to win, hopefully he stays patient i would hate to lose such an awesome hardworking player.
    He might be involved in trade talks too... it would break my heart but he could get some good returns for us.

    Ditto. I think it moves the team likely in that direction, but with a slim possibility for positive results too.

    Vasquez should help in terms of team offence.

    Don't discount the "Salmons effect", where seemingly every time he's traded in a contract year he helps his new team big time.

    Improved flexibility, with more depth at PF and PG along with replacing Gay's contract with smaller ones of which only Hayes is guaranteed next year, means trade options may change now, gives Masai more options than he actually had while stuck with Rudy "I have teammates?" Gay.

    Default Goodbye, sweet Acy





    Always played his best, whenever that dummy Casey actually gave him minutes. Always played like it mattered. Sacramento are getting a nice player in this trade, and it's Quincy Acy.

    It will be interesting to see how DeRozan handles the move, and how he performs being the new primary focus of both the offense and the opposition's defense.

    Standing ovation for him (maybe Gray too) when Sacramento comes to town.
    Not Rudy though. No.

    I could see Salmons & Hayes getting flipped against at the deadline, since they likely won't factor in to the team's long-term plans.

    Also, the team needs to cut a player to get down to 15.

    It'll be interesting to see if he's able to handle going against the stronger wing defenders of opposing teams.

    I don't think Masai would do it. He should talk to DeMar and get him to be a little more patient. By the time we build up to a high caliber playoff team he'll be in his prime. Which is actually a good thing, we'll have a player who's been through it all and finally gets to that light at the end of the tunnel so to speak. Him, Amir, and JV are guys i want on this team for a very long time (you can throw Ross in there too, i still have high hopes for him)

    I like Vasquez as a point guard. I see him as a grade A back-up over the course of his career. Patterson has zero defense but he can definitely stretch the floor. I like Acy better than him but Patterson has size. Salmons is an expiring -- there's that & Chuck Hayes will be bought out.

    We traded Rudy Gay, King Quincy & Air Gray for a Calderon-lite, a stretch 4 (role player big), an expiring contract (but still decent) and a warm body. If we get picks too, I call this trade a success. I'm just really pissed about Quincy. He was my new Ed -- the guy who I root for but he never gets PT but when he does, he's good.

    Yeah, I can see that too. I can see a whole bunch of new options now for Masai. I think that was the point of this deal in the end.

    And that's why it happened now. It gives him time before Dec 15 to have new discussions around the league and reassess what move to make next, even if it he's just slightly altering a deal he was already discussing.

    Vasquez had an amazing year last year. He would probably get more out JV.

    Liking this deal more the more I look at it.

    Patterson brings a completely different dimension at PF with his ability to stretch the floor (.340 career 3pt). He was a lotto pick in 2010, is only 24, and has been getting better each season. He's a nice addition to the big man rotation now and into the future.

    Vasquez was similarly a 2010 first round pick. He also has been improving each season. He's also a good 3pt shooter (.342 last year). He'll do a fine job filling in as the starter when Lowry is traded and he'll be a good option for backup PG in the future.

    I expect Fields to start at SF tonight. Hopefully the trade results in more burn for Ross and not a ton of minutes for Salmons.

    Bye Rudy and also bye Kyle. My feeling about this trade, goes something like this:
