    Will the Warriors win 'Sheed sweepstakes?

    After months of searching, we've finally stumbled across a Rasheed
    Wallace trade rumor that makes some sense for the Portland Trail
    Blazers.

    Rumors were rampant Thursday that the Warriors have been talking to
    the Blazers about a trade that would send Wallace to Golden State
    for Nick Van Exel and Erick Dampier. The Oregon Live Web site and
    the San Francisco Chronicle are reporting similar stories this
    morning.

    Is there any truth to the rumors? Yes ... and no.

    According to one Insider source, the two sides have been talking,
    and a Wallace-for-Van Exel-and-Dampier scenario is the best offer
    Blazers' GM John Nash has received and something the team is
    interested in exploring. However, another source insists nothing
    will happen until closer to the Feb. 19 trade deadline.

    "Everyone's exploring their options right now," the source told
    Insider. "Everyone's talking to everyone. I don't think decisions
    will be made until they have to be made. The offers keep getting
    sweeter for Rasheed, which means that Nash won't be in any hurry to
    pull the trigger."

    Why the Blazers would do it

    Why are the Blazers so interested? The bottom line is Nash needs to
    find a way to keep this team competitive, solve its long-term
    salary-cap problems and start changing its image, all at the same
    time. That isn't easy, and this is the first trade proposal that
    really addresses all three issues.

    The Blazers have been looking for a legitimate center ever since
    Arvydas Sabonis retired the first time. Dampier has put up all-star
    worthy numbers in Golden State this season and could be a long-term
    solution in the middle. Dampier has two more years and $17 million
    left on his contract, which is pretty reasonable considering the
    going rate on big men. Dampier does have an opt out in his contract
    after this season, but the Blazers can afford to re-sign him should
    he opt out.

    Van Exel has only one more year of guaranteed money left on his
    deal. The Blazers believe that, on a team competing for the
    playoffs, Van Exel can still be an asset. If he instead is a pain in
    the butt, like he's been in Golden State, they're free to dump him
    anytime and are looking at $12 million of extra cap space in the
    summer of 2005.

    By pulling the trigger on this trade, the Blazers would reduce their
    payroll by almost $25 million next season and should still be
    roughly $18 million under the cap in 2005, once Dale Davis, Damon
    Stoudamire and Van Exel come off the books. They'll need some of
    that money to re-sign Zach Randolph, but either way the Blazers
    would remain competitive and get plenty of cap room to work with
    after the 2004-05 season.

    A lineup of Dampier, Randolph, Darius Miles, Derek Anderson, Van
    Exel and Stoudamire should be able to remain competitive in the West
    until the Blazers can make more wholesale changes in 2005.
    The trade also opens the door to at least one more transaction that
    makes sense. Davis has been a huge problem in Portland of late, and
    the Blazers are eager to move him. The problem has been the
    inability to get a big man in exchange. With Dampier on board, the
    team would be free to move Davis to the highest bidder. The Raptors
    and Mavericks have shown the most interest in Davis, and if the
    Blazers can get back a contract that expires after next season and a
    prospect, they'll pull the trigger.

    Why the Warriors would do it

    The Warriors have as much or more incentive to do the trade than do
    the Blazers. Obviously, last summer's trade of Van Exel for Antawn
    Jamison and Jiri Welsch has been a disaster. But now they have an
    excellent chance to correct the mistake.

    If the Warriors ship Van Exel and Dampier for Wallace, they'll be
    looking at around $20 million in cap room this summer. That's enough
    to make the Warriors instant players in the Kobe Bryant sweepstakes
    or give them flexibility to go another route.

    The loss of Dampier is a major blow , but the cap flexibility is
    more important in the long run. The Warriors haven't been a major
    player in the free-agent market for years. This would give Chris
    Mullin his first chance to really reshape the team in his image. It
    also gives them a chance to give Eric Musselman the type of
    defenders he's been begging for.

    The Warriors would retain their young core -- Jason Richardson, Mike
    Dunleavy, Troy Murphy, Mickael Pietrus and Speedy Claxton -- while
    having the same cap flexibility as the Nuggets and Jazz.

    If Kobe wants to play in Golden State, the Warriors will be free to
    move Richardson and get something else valuable in return. If he
    doesn't, the team could make a run at a young big like Mehmet Okur,
    Kenyon Martin or Stromile Swift. Or the Warriors could make a run at
    a few veterans like Vlade Divac and Gary Payton to make a big-time
    playoff run. They could try to re-sign Wallace to a more reasonable
    contract or work out a sign and trade with a team that wants him.
    And the move gives them plenty of room to re-sign Adonal Foyle, if
    they choose.

    The bottom line in Golden State is management is willing to do just
    about anything to have those options. The team has been out of the
    playoffs longer than any other team in the league and is ready for
    that to change. The Warriors want to keep their young core intact,
    but after that they're open to anything that gives them the freedom
    to choose their own course.

    That makes this trade a slam dunk for Golden State.

    Van Exel gone no matter what?

    Van Exel's agent, Tony Dutt, put the odds at 60-40 that Van Exel
    will be moved before Feb. 19 trade deadline.

    "My gut feeling is that they're going to try to make a deal that
    makes sense for Nick and makes sense for them," Dutt told the San
    Francisco Chronicle. Dutt is in Houston right now with Van Exel, who
    left the team early this week to deal with a "family matter."
    According to the Chronicle, Warriors GM Garry St. Jean and Warriors
    president Robert Rowell are believed to have met with the Blazers'
    Nash on Saturday.

    Dutt told the paper that "there is no question" the Blazers were one
    of the teams talking trade with the Warriors.

    "You get so much going on at this time of the year that there is a
    lot of unknown yet," Dutt said. "Everybody is talking to everybody.
    It's no different than any other year. I think you can sit there and
    say, 'Yes, there will be some moves this year.' At the same time, at
    the end of the day, how many of them get done?"
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    Default Peep Show

    Peep Show

    9:10 AM ET


    Orlando Magic: Grant Hill told the Orlando Sentinel that he
    hopes to rejoin the team for practice in late February after being
    cleared to resume full-scale basketball activities. Hill said he is
    aiming at playing the last 10 games of the season. "The most it can
    be is 10 games from what I hear," Hill said. "I'm just glad to be
    able to play. I don't like to be restricted, but it fits my
    schedule." According to the Sentinel, 80 percent of Hill's contract
    is covered by insurance as long as he doesn't exceed 10 games this
    season.

    Cleveland Cavaliers: For the second time in as many weeks the Cavs
    reiterated that Zydrunas Ilgauskas is no longer on the trading
    block. "We are where we're going to be," coach Paul Silas told the
    News Herald. "(That won't change) unless something crazy comes
    about. I never say never. But, basically, we're not looking to do
    anything. We're settled in. Everyone is playing well. It's coming
    together."

    New Jersey Nets: New Nets coach Lawrence Frank believes that Alonzo
    Mourning will eventually return to the Nets, though this season is
    out of the question. "Alonzo, that's a very, very special guy. So
    you never forget. And we remember Alonzo every day. We talk about
    him every day. We put his number on the board every time we go out
    and prepare for a game," Frank told the N.Y. Post. "At some time,
    he's going to be back with us hopefully in one capacity or another.
    We haven't talked about that, but it's something I'm going to pull
    his leg [over], God-willing, if everything looks great with his
    health, we'd love to have him around. Whether it's in an official
    capacity or not, I don't know."

    Boston Celtics: Celtics director of basketball operations Danny
    Ainge is getting testy. Criticism of Ainge and how he's ran the team
    has been rampant. Ainge has a message for all of his critics. "As
    far as I'm concerned, keep speculating, keep wondering, keep
    dreaming that Danny's being reckless with no plan," Ainge told the
    Boston Globe. "I don't care. It's ludicrous. If they can't see it,
    that's OK with me. I have a plan that's going to work. I have a plan
    to build a team that is better offensively than we've been, that is
    good defensively. But you have to have talent to win. You have to
    have character and professionalism to win. That's my plan, to
    develop that. And you have to have a coach who is the leader of that
    group. And you have to have players on the team that are leaders.
    That's all in the plan. That doesn't happen in six months. It takes
    time. So, my plan hasn't wavered from the first day to today. I know
    that's easy to say. But if every move is judged as its own entity,
    then that is very, very shortsighted. There is a plan and we are on
    the same page in this organization. It's not in chaos. [The plan] is
    well formulated and well thought out and it will be successful."

    Hill plans return late next month

    Default Rumor Mill

    Rasheed Wallace
    Blazers

    Interested:
    Warriors
    Mavericks
    Knicks
    Hawks
    Cavs
    Rockets
    Nets

    Jan. 30 - The San Francisco Chronicle and the Oregon
    Live website (home of The Oregonian) are reporting the
    Blazers and Warriors are involved in talks that would
    send 'Sheed to Golden State for Nick Van Exel and Erick
    Dampier. The move is an obvious cap-cutting attempt by
    the Warriors that could leave them around $20 million in
    cap room next season.

    Is there any truth to the rumors? Yes ... and no.
    According to one Insider source, the two sides have been
    talking, and a Wallace-for-Van Exel-and-Dampier scenario
    is the best offer Blazers' GM John Nash has received and
    something the team is interested in exploring. However,
    another source insists nothing will happen until closer
    to the Feb. 19 trade deadline.

    Nick Van Exel
    Warriors

    Interested:
    Blazers

    Jan. 30 - Van Exel's agent, Tony Dutt, put the
    odds at 60-40 that Van Exel will be moved before Feb. 19
    trade deadline. "My gut feeling is that they're going to
    try to make a deal that makes sense for Nick and makes
    sense for them," Dutt told the San Francisco Chronicle.
    Dutt is in Houston right now with Van Exel, who left the
    team early this week to deal with a "family matter."
    According to the Chronicle, Warriors GM Garry St. Jean
    and Warriors president Robert Rowell are believed to
    have met with the Blazers' Nash on Saturday. Dutt told
    the paper that "there is no question" the Blazers were
    one of the teams talking trade with the Warriors.

    Dale Davis
    Blazers


    Interested:
    Raptors
    Mavs

    Jan. 30 - Davis has been a huge problem in Portland
    of late, and the Blazers are eager to move him. The
    problem has been the inability to get a big man in
    exchange. If the Blazers can land Erick Dampier in a
    trade, the team would be free to move Davis to the
    highest bidder. The Raptors and Mavericks have shown the
    most interest in Davis, and if the Blazers can get back
    a contract that expires after next season and a
    prospect, they'll pull the trigger.

    Zydrunas Ilgauskas
    Cavs


    Interested:
    Knicks
    Mavericks
    Blazers

    Jan. 30 - Is Zydrunas off the block? With so many
    teams in need of a big man, Ilgauskas has been a pretty
    hot commodity. The Mavs (for Antawn Jamison), Knicks
    (for Keith Van Horn and Frank Williams) and Blazers (for
    Rasheed Wallace) have all tried to pry Ilgauskas away,
    but so far GM Jim Paxson isn't biting.
    For the second time in as many weeks the Cavs reiterated
    that Ilgauskas is no longer on the trading block. "We
    are where we're going to be," coach Paul Silas told the
    News Herald. "(That won't change) unless something crazy
    comes about. I never say never. But, basically, we're
    not looking to do anything. We're settled in. Everyone
    is playing well. It's coming together."

    Jamal Crawford
    Bulls


    Interested:
    Clippers
    Knicks

    Jan. 29 - The Bulls and Clippers began discussions
    about a week ago on a way to get big man Melvin Ely to
    Chicago. Since then, however, talk of a larger
    Bulls-Clippers swap has taken hold. Bulls GM John Paxson
    likes Clippers' combo guard Marko Jaric and has tried to
    get him worked into the deal. The Clippers are balking
    unless the Bulls throw in their combo guard, Jamal
    Crawford.

    Can the two sides make a deal? If the Clippers were
    willing to substitute local product Quentin Richardson
    for Jaric, the Bulls would give up Crawford in a
    heartbeat. However, it's very unlikely that the Clippers
    would do that, even with the possibility of landing Kobe
    Bryant to replace Richardson this summer. More
    realistically, Ely, Jaric and Keyon Dooling for Fizer
    and Crawford works salary-wise and would address the
    needs of both clubs.

    Shandon Anderson
    Knicks


    Interested:
    ???

    Jan. 29 - How desperate is Isiah Thomas to trade
    Shandon Anderson? According to Newsday, Thomas has tried
    to pawn him off on the Blazers (for Ruben Patterson, a
    convicted felon), the Mavericks (for Tariq Abdul-Wahad
    who basically can't play) and the Raptors (for Lamond
    Murray).
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    Sorry, I haven't figured out how to paste this with working links to the various articles.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you
