I've been surfing the Internet and reading all the rumors since the Pacer's were ousted from the playoffs, but today for whatever reason I got my fill of it. It seems to me that there are three times as many rumors floating around as usual.
I'm thinking that's because of several things coinciding this year. Because of the European influx there's more players than usual available for the college draft. We have an expansion draft. Isiah is in New York giving all kinds of quotes to the rabid New York Press. The Laker's seem to be on the verge of breaking up. And we have two top five players, TMac and Kobe, who could be available. Plus it's all more interesting this year because the Pacer's are one of the main player's and being mentioned seemingly everywhere.
So I for one am ready for something to happen.
Starting with the expansion draft (in just 4 days) we have these dates to look forward to.
June 22 . . . The expansion draft.
June 24 . . . The college draft.
July 1 . . . . . The new season begins. Teams can begin negotiating with free agents.
July 14 . . . . Teams may begin signing free agents.
August 13 . . Summer Olympics begin in Athens Greece.
