    #Lakers have indeed asked #Cavs for Dion Waiters in potential Bynum-Gasol trade, league sources say. Cavs basically laughed.
    I'm sure LA had the same reaction when the Cavs offered them a disinterested cripple in return for a borderline all-star big man.

    Also, sources tell @FOXSportsOH another team (not #Lakers) has offered #Cavs first-round draft pick for Dion Waiters. No further info yet.

    Oh, and the Pelicans are still stranded in Indianapolis trying to get to Miami.

    They don't want Pau at all though? They have been trying to get rid of the dude for years now. Asking for solid pieces for a guy that you don't want, while you are shedding assloads of salary isn't a great selling point.

    What about the 268 shots he's taken outside of 8 feet? That's over half of his shots. And he's hitting them at a 26.9% clip. Does he not have anyone to kick out to there?
    I can only guess as to why this particular Player or subject has come up....but I am guessing that there are many more Players in the NBA that is as inefficient and as overpaid as JSmoove.

    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.

    They don't want to donate Pau Gasol to the Cavs. I can understand that.

    If the Cavs have so many great players that they can't be bothered to throw in their 4th or 5th best player, then they obviously don't need Pau that much, do they?

    Honestly, no. I don't really think they need him. All I am saying here is I understand where the Cavs are coming from here.

    The Cavs are 11-22. Clearly, they need more talented players, because theirs are not good enough.

    Pau Gasol is a better player than anyone on Cleveland's roster not named Kyrie, and Kyrie is playing like crap this season.

    What is a 1 year rental of Pau going to do for them? They are going nowhere fast this season, they need to be looking at the future, honestly.

    20mil in savings for a guy they are going to lose in free agency seems like good enough to me.

    The Celtics and Grizzlies are in advanced discussions to trade Courtney Lee for Jerryd Bayless. I wish my Mavs were looking into getting C-Lee instead.

    He's playing the best ball of his career this season. Shooting 44% from deep and nearly 50% from the field.

    I just think it's kind of humorous that Smith might end the season with more shots than points. So I'm going to continue tracking it. I wonder how many times in the past 30 years that's happened. I tried googling it, and could only find that Michael Beasley did it last season.

    Mavs' defense has been ugly all season long... we need to trade for some versatile defensive players if we want to make any noise in the playoffs. The team has 3-4 minute stretches where they play great defense and turn the opponent over repeatedly, but the other 44 minutes of the game, it's basically a layup line or wide open three-point bombers having their way with us. Ugly.
