    Anyone else thinking it would be Haddadi for Telfair???
    Yes. A big to replace JO who they released to make room for Morris.

    WojYahooNBA Lakers offering Steve Blake, Chris Duhon, Devin Ebanks, Darius Morris for 2nd-rounders, sources say. Looking to unload, free roster spots.

    Im hoping thats the case, or Klieza. But this still doesnt get rid of our biggest problem AlsoHouston is looking to nab Josh Smith. Atlwants him in the Western Conference.
    It doesn't get rid of our biggest problem, but it does some good things. It gets us a backup PG for the rest of the season at literally no cost bball-wise since Haddadi is seemingly never going to dress for the Raps. It means no other assets would be used, so BC still has everything else to work with. It also means that backup PG is no longer a need, meaning even a deal with Chicago can maybe be revisited with a new configuration where there's no Nate.

    We don't have the cap space to take on Blake without giving something back to LA.

    Boozer, Hamilton likely safe in Chicago — Rare is the season when Bulls forward Carlos Boozer and guard Rip Hamilton do not find their way into trade deadline talk, but apparently both can rest easy this year. Nick Fridell of ESPNChicago.com reports that the Bulls are aware that Boozer’s mammoth contract and Hamilton’s injury woes the last two seasons make both players not as appealing in deals. As well, the Bulls hope to retain financial flexibility for 2014 and don’t want to muddy up their cap. Here’s more:

    Trading either one would likely get Chicago out of a luxury tax hit at the end of the season and would save the franchise some money in the short term. The problem for the Bulls is that there isn’t much interest in either veteran as the minutes to the deadline tick away. Boozer has a mammoth contract that the Bulls will likely amnesty in a year and a half, while Hamilton just turned 35 years old and has been playing on a minutes limit for most of the season because Tom Thibodeau is so concerned that Hamilton’s body will break down again.

    Knowing these factors, and knowing the Bulls are trying hard to hold onto financial “flexibility” in preparation for the 2014 summer, it seems unlikely that they are going to make a deal by Thursday’s deadline.

    I read wrong news earlier.

    JO kept.

    Luke Zeller released by PHX to make room for Morris.

    The answer may be as simple as TRob was a redundant piece and not nearly as talented as advertised.

    I agree with that.

    He came out of nowhere as a Junior. He was stuck behind Morris twins but they were hardly incredible NBA talents.

    I was always suspect on him.

    Agreed...undersized PFs with no range are not very valuable....Also, when did T-Rob become 6'10'' (freakin nba.com BS)...I seem to remember him being something like 6'7ish without shoes....unless he has 3 inch lifts in his shoes.

    he's a great prospect, and has a tremendous ceiling. the kings management has no patience, and that will be their downfall. In 3-4 years, if they had kept the core of Marcus Thornton, Tyreke Evans, Thomas Robinson, Demarcus Cousins, added a decent PG (maybe marcus smart in the draft), the kings would be contenders for a long time.

    devil's advocate:
    he's not an undersized 4 by any means, this is coming from fans of team who employs a 6'9" centre.

    Sacramento got a million cash plus dropped salary which is good for the bottom line for a team that is in the process of being sold. Robinson will become they latest rookie to be buried on the Rockets bench by coach McHale. The Rockets moved 3 power forwards yesterday while adding one. Royce White moved up the depth chart (still not likely to play much).

    Correction: Cole Aldrich is a center, not a power forward, so the Rockets moved 2 power forwards and gained one.

    Well right now he doesn't look quick or strong or skilled enough to finish the moves he was getting off in his last year at Kansas. His jumper is also not nearly consistent enough to make him a threat from the mid-long range area. So if he can't score inside and can't pull defenders away from the basket, that's not a good combination.
    I do think he still has the chance to get better, but he'll need to significantly work on his body to be more effective in the post, and/or work in his jumper to at least be a solid (40% or more would be nice from 12-18 ft) shooter. This isn't college and he isn't going to get to always finish from 5 ft and in.

    I wasn't against getting Telfair, because he's been playing really solid for Phoenix, and they have a similar offense of running off stops, and running pick and roll/iso plays.

    I like Telfair, I just want Ridnour more.

    Raptors need a backup pg without taking on salary so Telfair and his expiring contract for Haddadi makes sense.
