    Joe Freeman: Kahn says Batum has not yet signed an offer sheet but will Sunday at 5 p.m. eastern. Team has to wait 48 hours for Webster to clear waivers. Twitter

    Did not know this Stat. Looks like that's our defensive number when we play the up-tempo style and vice versa when we play the defensive style.

    Not sure if it was reported yet, but Minnesota just waived Martel Webster...veteran shooter that happens to play SF. Under rated player too.

    If JJ and/or Kleiza are moved, it would be a decent pick up

    Is he healthy? That is the concern. He has had serious back issues.

    I don't think he is a solution for the starter role though and the Raps already have 2 very capable backup SF. If one of those backups were moved, I'd look at Webster.

    I think we should do a 5 year 50 million dollar deal for Rasual Butler.

    No man, that would almost be as bad as Javale Mcgee's deal

    Knicks have until 11:59:59 today. They will probably wait until the last second.

    It would be funny (or sad depending on opinion) if they accidentally typed wrong fax number or a fax came in as they were trying to send out and the league didn't receive fax until 12:01.

    I hope he'll regain the productivity he had as a rookie in Casey's system, but it was D'Antoni's fast paced system that he thrived under, not Woodson's defensive system which I would think Casey's system is closer to. End of the day we're still over paying him. Oh well, hopefully his hot girlfriend comes along.

    Marc J. Spears: Jeremy Lin appears close to being a Houston Rocket with Raymond Felton to NY deal close to being done, sources tell Y! Twitter

    Mark Haggard: Just got off the phone with NBA free agent Raymond Felton. He says a deal is about to be completed sending him back to the NY Knicks. Twitter

    Frank Isola: The Knicks have acquired Raymond Felton and Kurt Thomas from Portland for Jared Jeffries and Dan Gadzuric, sources tell the Daily News Twitter

    Marc J. Spears: Blazers will sign guard Raymond Felton to a three-year, $10 million deal and then trade him to Knicks in sign and trade, source tells Y! Twitter
    David Aldridge: Have read the Tweets on the Knicks, Lin, Felton. What I know is as of 10 p.m, NY has NOT informed Lin they're not matching, per source. Twitter


    David Aldridge: But Rockets' chances of getting Lin certainly look better than they did yesterday. They think there's a chance Knicks won't match. Twitter

    http://espn.go.com/nba/story/_/id/81...-nicolas-batum

    The Minnesota Timberwolves' attempt to acquire restricted free agent Nicolas Batum from the Portland Trail Blazers apparently has devolved into a grudge match -- at least for the Blazers -- that involves far more than the talented young small forward.


    The Timberwolves, league sources say, are prepared to sign Batum to a four-year, $46.4 million offer sheet Sunday after repeatedly trying to trade for him. They have offered as many as three future first-round draft picks and even have dangled small forward Derrick Williams, the No. 2 pick in the 2011 draft.

    The Blazers have resisted every overture even though multiple sources say Portland management believes $46.4 million is vastly more than Batum is worth.

    Batum's desire to leave Portland began last winter when the Blazers offered him an extension that averaged $5 million per year, a source said. That is less than half of what Minnesota is prepared to offer now.

    The Timberwolves also tried to orchestrate a deal that would have sent small forward Kyle Korver to the Blazers, along with the future first-round picks, in a three-way deal involving the Chicago Bulls. That, too, was rejected by Portland.

    The Bulls agreed to trade Korver to the Atlanta Hawks as part of a three-team deal involving the Timberwolves on Friday night.

    This, of course, is not the first time the Blazers and Timberwolves have had trade talks -- and that's part of the problem. Even before the battle for Batum began, the teams were working to resolve a dispute, a league source said.

    The Blazers traded swingman Martell Webster to the Timberwolves in a 2010 draft-night trade for Ryan Gomes and the rights to Minnesota's No. 16 pick, Luke Babbitt. The following fall, Webster had back surgery because of a bulging disk. The Blazers were aware of the injury but did not disclose it before the trade, a league source said. The two teams since have been quietly negotiating compensatory terms but have not been able to reach an agreement.

    The Timberwolves released Webster on Friday as part of a cost-cutting measure to open salary-cap room for Batum's offer sheet.

    That former Blazers guard Brandon Roy has agreed to a two-year, $10 million deal with the Timberwolves also has Portland owner Paul Allen thinking Minnesota is trying to make life difficult for him, a source said.

    Roy retired before last season because of degenerative knees. The Blazers still owed him $49 million over three years at the time, but an insurance policy was expected to cover a significant chunk of that. If he returns to play, however, that policy no longer can be invoked and the Blazers are back on the hook for what they owe him, minus the $10 million Minnesota will pay him, sources say. The balance due from the Blazers could be as much as $17 million, one source said.

    Timberwolves president David Kahn is from Portland and once covered the team as a sportswriter for The Oregonian, but a team source insists there is no personal element coloring the Timberwolves' interest in Batum or Roy or pursuing damages for Webster. The team even offered to relax its position on Webster in exchange for dealing them Batum.

    As for Roy, "He chose Minnesota, and if he weren't playing for them, he'd be playing somewhere else and Paul would still be out that money," a source said.

    Neither Blazers general manager Neil Olshey nor Kahn could be reached for comment

    http://blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket...n-offer-sheet/

    Across Las Vegas on Saturday, Rockets officials and couriers fanned out trying to deliver Jeremy Lin’s offer sheet to the Knicks in what has become an odd bit of NBA front office hide and seek.

    Handing over the paper work has proved as difficult as reaching a deal to land Dwight Howard.

    The Rockets have tried to deliver the offer sheet to the Knicks since Friday afternoon, but they had eluded their efforts, holding up the start of the three-day clock to match the offer or let Lin go to the Rockets, according to a person familiar with the process.

    The Rockets had called and asked where they could deliver the offer sheet but were told that information would not be shared. By Friday evening, a courier called the hotel room of a Knicks official but did not get an answer. Roughly 30 minutes later, a front desk clerk reached him but was told the Knicks were not taking deliveries and that he would not come to the front desk to pick up a package.

    The Rockets sent representatives to the Knicks practice on Friday and to the game on Saturday but could not find Knicks general manager Glen Grunwald.

    The offer sheet was FedExed to the Knicks’ New York office and will have the receipt forwarded to the league office, but league officials said that until it can be shown that the Knicks have the offer sheet in hand, the clock on the Knicks’ three-day period to match would not begin.

    The gamesmanship, though unusual, will not last. Having the offer sheet in the Knicks New York office will eventually suffice. It is expected that in time it would be delivered in Las Vegas. But for more than 24 hours, the Rockets have been unable to connect on what is normally an easy pass.

    i think this one is hilarious. i can see glunwald slinking around corners watching for serving papers. i feel no pity for new york but they are losing 2 players this year to restricted free agency and so far have only replaced one of them with a player on a very different growth pattern then the one they are losing. what are they going to do at the 3? this is a team that could use jj.

    Jose would be a great backup for the Raptors. However if he is traded, I don't think free agency will be the place to obtain a backup.

    Here is the list of free agent PGs from HoopsWorld.com. Only the bold remain available:


    Deron Williams, Brooklyn Nets – $16.4 million – Player Option ($17.8 million)
    Steve Nash, Phoenix Suns – $11.7 million – Unrestricted
    Aaron Brooks, Phoenix Suns – $2.0 million – Restricted ($3.0 million Qualifying Offer)
    Raymond Felton, Portland Trail Blazers – $7.6 million – Unrestricted
    Kirk Hinrich, Atlanta Hawks – $8.0 million – Unrestricted
    Jason Kidd, Dallas Mavericks – $8.6 million – Unrestricted
    Andre Miller, Denver Nuggets – $7.8 million – Unrestricted
    Chauncey Billups, L.A. Clippers – $2.0 million – Unrestricted
    Jameer Nelson, Orlando Magic – $7.8 million – Player Option ($7.8 million)
    D.J. Augustin, Charlotte Bobcats – $3.2 million – Restricted ($4.4 million Qualifying Offer)
    Jason Terry, Dallas Mavericks – $10.7 million – Unrestricted
    George Hill, Indiana Pacers – $2.1 million – Restricted ($3.1 million Qualifying Offer)
    Jordan Farmar, Brooklyn Nets – $4.0 million – Player Option ($4.3 million)
    Leandro Barbosa, Indiana Pacers – $7.6 million – Unrestricted

    Goran Dragic, Houston Rockets – $2.1 million – Unrestricted
    Jerryd Bayless, Toronto Raptors – $3.0 million – Restricted ($4.2 million Qualifying Offer)
    Derek Fisher, Oklahoma City Thunder – $3.4 million – Unrestricted
    Randy Foye, L.A. Clippers – $4.3 million – Unrestricted

    Mo Williams, L.A. Clippers – $8.5 million – Player Option ($8.5 million)
    Jonny Flynn, Portland Trail Blazers – $3.4 million – Unrestricted
    Keyon Dooling, Boston Celtics – $2.2 million – Unrestricted
    Ishmael Smith, Orlando Magic – $0.5 million – Unrestricted*

    Ramon Sessions, L.A. Lakers – $4.3 million – Player Option ($4.6 million)
    Jeremy Lin, New York Knicks – $0.8 million – Unrestricted*
    Sundiata Gaines, Brooklyn Nets – $0.9 million – Unrestricted*
    A.J. Price, Indiana Pacers – $0.9 million – Unrestricted*
    Baron Davis, New York Knicks – $1.3 million – Unrestricted
    Royal Ivey, Oklahoma City Thunder – $1.2 million – Unrestricted
    John Lucas, Chicago Bulls – $0.9 million – Unrestricted
    Gilbert Arenas, Memphis Grizzlies – $0.4 million – Unrestricted
    Jannero Pargo, Atlanta Hawks – $1.1 million – Unrestricted
    Delonte West, Dallas Mavericks – $1.1 million – Unrestricted
    Walker Russell, Jr., Detroit Pistons – $0.4 million – Unrestricted*

    Darius Morris, L.A. Lakers – $0.5 million – Unrestricted*
    Terrell Harris, Miami HEAT – $0.5 million – Unrestricted*
    Carldell Johnson, New Orleans Hornets – $0.5 million – Unrestricted*
    Ronnie Price, Phoenix Suns – $1.1 million – Unrestricted

    T.J. Ford, Golden State Warriors – $1.1 million – Unrestricted
    Anthony Carter, Toronto Raptors – $1.3 million – Unrestricted
    Roger Mason, Washington Wizards – $1.1 million – Unrestricted

    Jamaal Tinsley, Utah Jazz – $1.2 million – Team Option ($1.3 million)
    Donald Sloan, Cleveland Cavaliers – $0.2 million – Unrestricted*
    Manny Harris, Cleveland Cavaliers – $0.4 million – Unrestricted*

    Patty Mills, San Antonio Spurs – $0.3 million – Unrestricted*
    Courtney Fortson, Houston Rockets – $0.2 million – Unrestricted*
    Mike James, Chicago Bulls – $0.6 million – Unrestricted
    Jerome Dyson, New Orleans Hornets – $0.1 million – Unrestricted*

    Ben Uzoh, Toronto Raptors – $0.2 million – Unrestricted*
    Armon Johnson, Brooklyn Nets – $0.1 million – Unrestricted*
    Earl Boykins, Houston Rockets – $0.2 million – Unrestricted
    Blake Ahearn, Utah Jazz – $0.1 million – Unrestricted*



    Obviously most at the bottom are totally useless which is why they are still available. No doubt there are 3rd string PG's available (Uzoh!) but a backup? I don't think so.

    If Jose is dealt, the best hope for a backup is a PG coming back.

    There's a few I see that could be a potential backup that may actually consider Toronto
    Jordan farmar
    Johnny Flynn
    John Lucas
    Randy foye
    Roger mason
    There's a few others like arenas? Fisher and Davis but I imagine those guys will be looking for contenders. I'd say barbosa but he's more of a 2 guard.
