    Yes, Sacramento. Also, Fredette is in talks with the Cavaliers and the Bulls. I bet the Bulls grab him, but I wish Masai would pick up the phone.

    I'd like to see Jimmer in CHI. If he can turn DJ Augustin into a 13 and 5 guy and a legitimate piece on a playoff team (which i'm still not convinced of, I pinch myself everytime i see his stats), Jimmer is going back to BYU numbers

    Last night's game, with the injury to Ross and the minutes played by DeRozan, shows again how we need to pick up a strong, sharpshooting small forward or shooting guard. I am open to just about any suggestions, but Toronto only has two days to make a signing now.

    Toronto doesn't have "only two days to make a signing." March 1 is the deadline for players to be bought out and still be able to play for another team; that's why the buyouts are all happening this week with Granger, Jimmer, Butler, Davis, etc.

    The Spurs signed T-Mac last year on April 16, for example.

    Butler to OKC; looks like Granger will end up with the Clippers.

    Hopefully Thibs finds his defense so brutal that he doesn't see the court. Last thing I want the bulls to have is someone who can come in and knock down 5 threes in quick time.

    ...He's playing DJ Augustin and Kirk Hinrich a combined 60 minutes a game. He also gave the less-than-stellar defensively Robinson and Bellinelli a combined 60 in the playoffs last year. Dude is gonna find minutes.

    It was a tongue in cheek comment
    Kirk Hinrich has always been a very good defensive player though (not sure if you are criticizing his defense or just pointing out that two average/mediocre players are combining for 60 minutes).

    Average/mediocre. Although Robinson and Bellinelli was definitely more on the god these guys suck on defense side.

    He's also a very good flopper.

    Grangers $14 million salary (prorated) is assumed by whichever team claims him. Don't think any contender has that cap space. That's why Udrih ($1.2 million) was the only waiver claim.
