    The new CBA on the horizon has got the GM’s going crazy

    yeahhhhh boyyyyyyyy

  • Holy Moly Trade Day

    Damn! This is one of the best trade years ever! Portland and Oklahoma City just improved their roster tremendously and about to give the Fakers a hard time defending that third overall seed in the West!!! The best year ever in stars getting traded!!!

    Bobcats also got Dante Cunningham. Honestly 2 first round picks, a young player who is probably nothing more than a rotation player, and a big expiring is better than i couldve hoped for. Wallace is defiantly not the same as last year.

    WTF are the Bobcats doing? They just traded away two key players in Wallace and Mohammed and got nothing in return.

    This would give Greg Oden proof that if he can get healthy it will be his starting spot at centre next year with a 43 yr old Camby as his backup. Alas… Portlant really should look to draft as many centres as they can for next season. Call it the ‘T-Wolves Fabrication’

  • Think Tank

    I love trade season

  • Overtime

    Woulda been so cool if the Lakers got Crash, shame the bobcats didnt want Artest….dunno why he hit 5 threes last night

  • dsleepy

    2 first round picks is a great return. impressed with this, esp considering wallace is 29 and they prob weren’t going to overpay to keep him anyway when his contract runs out next year (?)

  • Bojangles

    ^ He gets paid about 10 mill per for the next two seasons and has a player option for 11 mill after that.

  • whoooo!

    so after trading away their starting Center, does Portland even have any Centers left that actually play?

    i think its safe to say my thunder are having a hell of a better trade season than your cats! hell yeah!! but cats are freeing up some space nicely.. i just cant think of too many good players who would really wanna sign with them in the offseason..


    Good move. Mos def alleviates Lamarcus. And we didn’t have 2 give up Andre. Kinda sad 2 c Joel go. He gave it his all during his yrs here in p-town. Hopefully it works out 4 him

    Wow…Ghost of Pritchard helped Bobs on this one. Easy win for Charlotte.

    c_cantrell, im confused. We got back 2 first round picks, a young pf, a big expiring, and apparently Sean Marks just for Wallace. That is more than fair return. The Nazr trade was meh, we traded him for another sizeable expiring in Mo Pete and another young pf who can help with our rotation. OKC did have a good day, they got the size they needed to compete against the Lakers. We’ll see if losing Jeff Green affects Durant at all….

  • DeeDre

    Wow. They arguably now have the second best front court in the West. Imagine if Brandon Roy was 80%. hell 75 %. Andre Miller, Roy, Wallace and Aldridge. Nice

  • buzzjuice

    Why didn’t the Celts pick this guy up if all it took was Ghostface and some picks?
