    6th MOY candidate for nothing seems like a shame. Hope we can at least get draft picks back for another potential Hart

    Saw interesting opt with jc n orl....i think works...jc n once of the 2nds we got from chi for henzoja/mack....Mack is owed 6mill next season but only $1mill is guranteed. Mario would just be a trial, i doubt he last in the nba after this season but if he works, could shoot him 1+1 type deal like ennis got, still relatively young n uber athletic, just can't shoot

    B.R. just reported the lakers tried to trade Clarkson for A. bradley weeks ago. And now Bradley is on the trading block.

    Bump for the Griffin trade that included Bradley.

    Lakers get JJ, Favors, Noel, Devin Harris.

    Noel could possibly stick this summer (especially if those LaBron rumors are true) and D. Harris can come in take over for an oft injured Zo, which further allows him to not rush back to action if necessary. JJ provides some scoring punch that we'll miss with JC and if not, then we buy him out to send him to a contender. Favors, can also possibly stick this summer for the right amount. Add future picks and cash necessary to complete the deal. Open up max space this summer.

    Utah ain't a free agent haven and even lost Hayward. You lock in JC on a team friendly deal, who replaces Hood who may have cost more in free agency. You bring in Zu to back up Gobert in case of injury. You bring in Powell who is locked into a team friendly deal and costs much less than Favors.

    Dallas gets their hometown kid in Jules. They also get Hood and both of them are RFAs, so we know Cuban is all about getting his guy at the right price. This summer is said to be a bad one for free agents (see Niko pushing for team option to be guaranteed before getting traded to NOP), so dictating terms on Jules and Hood is something Cuban can redeem himself with in how Noel was handled. The price is steep in taking on Deng, but Dallas did say they would absorb bad contracts for the right assets. Since they have been striking out on free agents and this summer may not be any different, they control the action with Jules and Hood. We can also add a future pick to make the Deng dump much more palatable.

    I got no proof, but I think Wade would follow LeBron to the bench over here if LeBron came. Wade has also been very complimentary of the Ball family.

    I thought you were automatically retired when no one wanted to sign you any longer.

    But did he just make Duck Tales cool in da hood?
