    If they can get him for that, I doubt we have to wait for July to find out, because they can offer that now via extension.

    A) I'd bet he ends up with a 4 year deal, at least, not a 3 year deal.
    B) I'd peg 8M per year as his absolute minimum.
    Good point.

    Kenneth Faried's name is coming up everywhere as being available in a trade. What would it take to get him? I have no clear idea of what Denver wants to do...compete, tank?
    Denver wants flexibility. They're capped out for the next three years because of their contract structure and, injuries this season aside, it's clear that the team needs reworking; they probably don't have to tank because there's a lot of talent still on the team, but the pieces don't fit with each other or the coach. Denver probably wants A) expirings and B) their own list of players they think are good fits.

    They should look for a center. A 3 team deal with Detroit, Milwaukee or Houston? They get Monroe, Sanders or Asik. Not sure there's something in that for Toronto.
    We need a backup centre, not a starter who's going to get pissed when Jonas gets minutes. Chris Kaman is probably our best bet, and if the Lakers manage to trade Pau Gasol like they want to do then we can probably get Kaman off the Lakers for cash and/or Dwight Buycks because at that point they're out of luxury tax territory (and more importantly, the repeater tax).

    He was talking about the Nuggets. Could not have been more obvious.

    Well obviously it COULD have been!



    Anyways:

    Houston sends: Jeremy Lin, Donatas Motiejunas, and Robert Covington
    Toronto sends: Steve Novak, Greivis Vasquez, Tyler Hansbrough and Austin Daye

    Houston gets rid of Lin's poison-pill contract and picks up Vasquez, the original Mr. Assist, for a team that's fifth-last in assist rate in the NBA and needs a pass-first PG desperately, plus they get Hansbrough (a foul-drawing specialist big) and two shooters. Toronto gets the bench scorer they need who can work with Lowry much the same way Vasquez did, except Lin is better, as well as picking up D-Mo to replace Hansbrough and who should play well alongside Jonas.

    A lot of NBA writers I really enjoy can't seem to shake the idea that Lowry is possibly on the move.

    Is there a serious case of denial going on? Can they not adapt to new information/circumstances/situations?

    Love this deal... but I saw Morey's interview few weeks ago and he told that rockets r receiving lots of calls for Motiejunas, but prefer to keep him.

    He also said he was going to trade Asik by a fake deadline he pulled out of his ass. If they expect to trade Lin or Asik they better be prepared to give up DM.

    right. In the same interview he said that Asik will remain a rocket.. egh. you never know, GMs becoming true brain-washing machines.

    I would love to be in the room when Masai picks up that phone call.

    I love that we finally have a GM who is okay with waiting. He waits for what he wants, and if it isn't offered, he doesn't accept. Patience is a virtue, and Masai is virtuous!

    Or is it really where one guy writes an intriguing, semi-intelligent and plausible piece, half a dozen other writers try to jump on the wagon as it goes by.

    As a sidenote, Anthony Bennett has 19 points and 10 rebounds tonight and is playing really great, the best in a recent series of well-played games. We really should've traded for him a month ago.

    Was he on the market? No. So why even bring it up? Who could we have traded for him even if he was?

    Agreed, there's no way in hell a GM is going to give up on a number 1 pick after 20 or so games unless they get an offer they possibly can't refuse, even with a player as bad as Bennett.

    ACC will be sold out like every night, guaranteed -- if this ever happens.

    I think the two guys most likely to get traded are Psycho T and Vasquez. For what? No idea. A nice big expiring?
    What is the point?
    Vasquez in a RFA anyway. Greatly reduces our change to making it out of first round.

    The Lakers already have to pay Nash $9.7M next year, and they have holes at nearly every position. I don't think it's a forgone conclusion they even make an offer to Lowry, let alone a $9M per year offer. Does LA want $18.7M tied up in the PG position, when the only other player under contract is Kobe at $23.5M? I think they'll spend money on C, PF, and SF before they spend it on PG.
    Also, Marshall has played reasonably well since signed. Little "tutoring" by Nash & he might actually be a solid PG.
    Another PG at 8-11 mil per -definately not a priority.
