    Can we just move on from Nene. He's not coming here.

    I would agree with this, but I just saw the revised Chris Paul trade. In the revised version, Houston gets Gasol AND Odom, which hurts Houston's ability to sign Nene.

    If the Howard to NJ trade happens, it hurts their ability to sign Nene.

    So if both deals happen, Nene's suitors are down to Denver and Indy. Indy could still be outbid by Denver, but at least our chances will have increased.

    I'm more optimistic than I was an hour ago.

    So apparently the earlier report that Nene was going to wait until the end of the day (Saturday) to make his decision was actually code for, "Nene was waiting for the LAL/NOH/HOU trade to finish so he could sign with the Rockets?"

    Who knows.

    A few hours ago Mavs fans were up in arms that Cuban was letting everyone leave and get nothing in return. Now they're getting Odom.

    Things change way too fast anymore. I stopped trying to figure it out a couple days ago. I'm just waiting and seeing without blowing my top out of impatience.

    Probably. I think he's waiting for the dust to settle with the CP3 and Howard trades before he makes his decision.

    I would not go above 15 mil for Nene. If we could pull of this coup and get Nene because NJ get Howard I would jump for joy. I think he fits the team perfectly. Add if somehow we could get Rondo as well somehow I'd be peeing my pants even if we have to give up Hans. I would much rather see us giving up Posey, Rush/DC and or draft picks though. If Nene commanded more than that in the open market I would not be too dissappointed though. I think there are other alternatives via trades.
