    Humphries: 2 years, 24 mil. Underpaid.

    Just going up online and via SportsCenter: Kris Humprhies is staying with Nets on two-year deal valued at $24 million

    They traded that TE to Atlanta for Harrington.

    That's what I said, or didn't I make it clear that's what I said?

    He's making that David West contract look even better.

    Prokhorov has clearly not given up on the Howard trade yet.
    He's willing to pay anything to have a chance in January.

    If Howard was in Houston by now, Humphries probably gets 6 mil a year.

    WOW! 12 mil a year for 2 years! Last I heard he was signing for 3 years at 24 mil which I thought was a good deal for the Nets. 12 mil a year is pricey to me.

    no, not underpaid. probably overpaid, but definitely not underpaid. Classic good stats on a bad team guy.

    But I am happy for him. too bad it wasn't a longer contract.
    yep, i was joking here. i'm not sure he even gets 3/24 if he had to call other teams.

    kudos to his agent though. he managed to turn the Howard situation into $ for Humphries in the end.

    Why would you be upset?

    I'd rather Dwight go to LaLaLand than go to Brooklyn. If there had to be another SuperTeam, I'd rather it be in the Western Conference than the Eastern Conference.

    But if it's all about Dwight getting his way, then I'd rather send him to Houston so that he can languish there for 1/2 a season.

    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.

    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)

    Add Joe Johnson and Deron Williams and you have collectively the most overpaid starting 5 in the league...

    You can have that with their owner...

    I'm not sold that they will be worth it though... Wallace is the only solid defender in that group... And there is only one ball to score with... I think Crooklyn will be a disappointment this year when compared to their hype... I think they'll be in the Playoffs... But not a top 4 seed... At least with their present roster...

    Because I can't stand la just getting whoever they want whenever they want. Not to mention Dwight will probably whine and end up winning a ring

    I get that Lopez was hurt most of last year. But other than Joe Johnson, did they really add anything else other than Dwight rumors?

    I just can't get that hyped about a team coming off a 22 win season, with only one significant addition.

    Everyone thought we got a steal with Augustin at 3.5mil for 1 year and I know we needed a true PG but I'm kind of surprised that Mayo is going to make about the same with a 2nd a year option. Mayo is cold blooded. Mavs got a steal imo.

    it's one addition on paper. in reality, Brook wasn't really there, D-Will was injured a lot too, G-Wallace =deadline trade.
    Teletovic is new, could be their 6th guy.

    Basically, the 22 win team was mostly Humphries and Brooks with part-time D-Will. This team could be MUCH better.

    I agree.....but if it came down to LeDecision or the Knicks winning another Championship and seeing Kobe/Nash/Dwight winning one...I'd settle with seeing LaLaLand winning it all. All are necessary evils....but at least Nash gets one.

    I'm a firm believer in others not fixing/tampering with someone elses post, so instead of "could" they WILL be much much better.

    I think it was more of a fact that Mayo waited too long and simply ran out of options. The Pacers and other teams were interested in him, just not at 8 mil a yr. If he would have backed off and accepted between 5 and 6 he's most likely a Pacer I would think.

    It'll be interesting to see how his season goes as the starter on the Mavs.

    DC+Mayo= the backcourt Larry legend always wanted for the pacers lol

    The Suns signed Gordon to a four-year, $58 million offer sheet that includes the opportunity for him to opt out of the contract after the third season.

    Vet minimum anybody? He might be a good player coach for Mahimni and Plumlee. I really haven't wanted him in the past couple years, but the way the team is set up...it's an interesting thought now. And Larry isn't here now. Could the stars be align for a Oneal return?

    ďIím not stupid, I donít think I can go for 20 every night anymore, but I do believe I can go for 20 on any given night. Itís just about finding a position whether itís coming off the bench or starting, whether its 15 minutes or 30 minutes, whatever the coaches ask you to do itís just about having the opportunity to be yourself. I just want to get to the level that I know Iím physically right. HoopsWorld

    ďThatís the only goal,Ē OíNeal said. ďWinning a championship is the only goal. Thereís no guarantee in this league, everything has to go right to win. I know that personally. Itís not about money because if I sign, it will be for the minimum. Iíve made a ton of money in this league. The NBA has been very good to me and my family so itís not about that. Itís about being healthy and being strong. And again this is by far the best Iíve felt in five years. Between the treatment in Germany and my coaches here, strength and conditioning coaches and basketball coaches, itís been a really good relationship between the three. Iím looking forward to it weíll see what happens.Ē HoopsWorld
