    Have to assume the Wizards are going to finish the year with a better record than the raps now.

    A couple of things, the more I think about it the more awful that Washington-Denver, trade is for D.C. Booker while no star has been arguably their best player over the course of the year,,and he brings the same offense as nene but with added toughness. Now, the team has no defensive 5 on their team, plus got rid of their top scorer in Young. They might be challenging the Bobcats for the 1st overall pick, in the hopes that AD can solidfy their defense.

    Don't Trust Casey

    So much for standing pat!

    Raptors were in on other deals that didn't happen. "We had a lot of irons in the fire today," Casey said

    Lottery selection night and draft night are the next dates to circle on the calendar.

    Obviously the vast majority of teams sat on their picks (the Nets' to Portland was probably the most valuable) but they are under the gun and have to swing deals to appease Deron. I think there is very little chance of someone exchanging a first for the 2 seconds (even a low first). This is when the scouting staff have to step up and unearth nuggets that teams like the Spurs & Mavs seem to do....but I have no faith in this unfortunately.

    Throw in $3M and I disagree as long as we are talking 21 and up with a team close to or in luxury tax (cough, Atlanta, cough).

    At least with that Trade we get a good idea of what a Top 5-7 pick is worth to GMs this year.

    that wallace trade was the worst deal of the day. i think that the nets draft pick would be more of a staying peice for darren than wallace for a couple months.

    a contender is going to grab him up in the off season. fire that gm today what garbage. a very good day for portland though. and i doubt they need to worry about losing batum to some poachers this summer. it would be hilarious if dummond falls 4th they get him and he immediately breaks both of his legs and is never the same.

    AHAHAHHA.

    Anyways, The Nets are 5th and have a pick at the 11th as well. Not bad for the Trailblazers, still probably having Batum and Aldridge.

    The Nets second pick (from Houston) is lottery protected. There is a strong possibility they have no draft picks this year.

    Geezus. For a team as bad as them, that is NOT a good thing.

    I'm scared to see what that team turns into if DWill leaves for Dallas.

    I really think that will be the case! I would hate to be a NJ fan right now. I don't think adding was the difference Wallace to keep Deron around. Maybe they would like to trade Morrow and or Brooks on Draft night...for two second rounders lol

    Are there any NJ fans???

    In the 2006-07 playoffs, I drove down to the Meadowlands and bought tickets to Game 3 at the gate a mere 30 minutes before tipoff (while the 2 games in Toronto sold out within minutes of the announced playoff schedule).

    I asked a local why the place had any empty seats at all. His answer was, "the Yankees started their season last week".

    It's no wonder the team is leaving Jersey.

    If only we could sign Deron Williams. He's 27, we have a bunch of cap space and a bunch of young guys coming in.. Trade Jose or Bayless for picks or pieces.. If Bargs regained his form, and we drafted a wing like MKG (assuming he changes his mind about declaring) that would be a pretty nice team.
