    I'd fully expect that EJ's Agent put in a Player Option or ETO in the 4th year of the contract.
    don't think he could

    ETO is only possible in 5 year contracts. But player option, why not.
    The Suns were ready to give him anything he wants, it's only smart for the agent to include a player option. I'd guess that Roy's contract has one too.

    I'm cool with Barbosa coming back. It never hurts to have another capable player.

    Why would the Lakers want to move Gasol?
    I dont think they would want to. But to get Howard they may have to move both. With one going to Orlando and the other to Houston. Hence why I wondered if they could pull off getting Howard without giving up both. And like i said. If they do. Close up shop.

    the bulls are going to love the result of next season, and so will stern and the league.... the bulls might not like it during the season but they may get a very high draft pick and then get rose back next year.... heck they'll probably win the lottery just like they did with their 1% chance a few years ago to get rose...some teams are just "luckier" than others.

    If Dwight isn't moved, I wouldn't be surprised to see a late season trade to Chicago when Orlando sees an almost guranteed chance of getting the 1st overall pick in return.
    I don't see the Bulls being that bad. I think they will be pretty good with or without Rose.... In fact, I think they are better than the Pacers even without Rose.....

    I wouldnt go that far. I do think they'll compete a lot more than ppl give them credit for. They have one of the best coaches on the league and their system allows them to stay close in any game.

    So that must mean Philly is better then us too seeing how they beat the bulls without Rose in the playoffs.

    Miami
    Boston
    Knicks
    Brooklyn
    Philly
    Bulls
    Pacers?

    7th seed here we come!

    I have already said that I am not sure we are better than the sixers. If they make a major addition, we won't be. If they stay where they are, we will be better..... I think what you posted here is a lot more logical than thinking the Pacers would be first in their division and second in the East. I just don't see that at all...... Of course, we could do something that would change my mind about that but it would mean replacing a starter. I think Granger is the only player where that might make some sense but only if it is a great deal for the Pacers....

    Three-team deal may send Dwight Howard to Lakers, Andrew Bynum to Cavs and picks/prospects/cap relief to Magic. Still trying to get details.

    Who would you suggest getting for Granger? A player that is obtainable and not a wishful pipe dream. I'm just curious, please elaborate on your comment.

    A good starting young player with all star potential or a lottery draft pick or two....... He is our best player. He isn't getting any younger and if you are ever going to deal him it better be soon. His value is lower now that it was a couple of years ago. I'm not sure that you can get anything worth while for him now. Perhaps at the trade deadline......

    There is a difference between being pessimistic and realistic. Our own management said they overperformed last year. We are down to one player with room for great improvement and that is George. If he does, we may well be 2nd or 3rd. If he doesn't, we may slip to sixth..... Or we may make a great deal that makes a big difference but I really don't see that happening....

    I don't get all of the hate for Barbosa as well. Give him a complete training camp and a full season and he would fit much better to our team and what his role would be. On the other hand if Lance can fill that void why not just let him play and find another big body on the cheap. We might be able to get Fez back.
    its not hate on my part...I want to ensure that Lance gets some minimal but consistent # of minutes in the Guard rotation because I fell that we have to give him a chance to prove himself. He's not going to develop by sitting and watching after these last 2 seasons. Getting Barbosa only puts a Player in front of him in the rotation.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    I think that they could do even better than they did last year... Think about it, we pushed the NBA champs to the edge of elimination. Now our starters have even more chemistry... I'm just saying, this season might just turn out a lot better than you think.

    Losing the last three games in a row and letting James run wild while they did not have Bosh is pushing them to the edge of elimination? Do you really think Wade and James were concerned? I don't.....

    I think that Roy has some room for improvement too... Although he may already be a damn good player, I think he has some more to show us. He started getting ferocious on defense in the playoffs.

    i wonder the price. probably both Thompson and Waiters.
    maybe just one of them + picks + cap? In that case, it would be a very interesting team, both now and long term. Dare I say, the 2nd most talented in the East?
