    I'll be shocked if Boozer isn't Hornet. Think MJ gonna be all over this and Boozer will be good for them.

    Hmmm, I thought someone might claim Boozer with the intention of trading him. But since he only has 1 year left on his contract, he won't be eligible to be traded. So teams that bid on him will be planning to use him.

    The waiving team may not re-sign or re-acquire the player for the length of his contract (which includes seasons following an ETO or option), and the claiming team is prohibited from trading the player until the following July 1. If the player is eventually traded, his new team becomes the claiming team.

    And your statement isn't pure speculation? Got any proof to show that Walsh wasn't bidding against himself?
    Nice selective editing and selective reading comprehension. The point was very clear in my posts from this morning that no one on this board including myself knows who is being offered what or who is negotiating with whom.

    My take on the situation was that from a basketball perspective it makes some sense to try and close a reasonable deal with Lance. Nothing more. nothing less. Of course no one chose to comment constructively on that or offer an answer to my question regarding the salary cap situation.

    Eff it, I want Boozer. He seems like a Pacer. He is irritating and annoying, you know, guys you would hate unless he was on your team. He would fit in with the rest of our group

    Random question, can someone give me the rundown on Shayne Whittington? He is an UDFA, but basically already has a roster spot on the team? Is he supposed to be good?

    Peter Dinwiddie is a finalist for the GM job with the Grizz really happy for him. He is going to do big things.

    He described his own prospects by saying he hopes to be able to play in the NBADL this year and to someday be a Pacer.

    Don't think garbage minutes.

    Think thermonuclear devastation / zombie apocalypse minutes.

    Ahh, so he won't actually make the final roster then, or at least most likely won't. Well he did average 16/9 in college, does he have any long term potential? I notice he can shoot 3's. I guess I am happy we are actually using the NBDL, I always thought we should use it more. Especially with a guy like Whittington who is fully willing to embrace playing there and proving himself.

    I guess it could just be a ploy to make other GMs think the Hornets won't be bidding a lot on Boozer.

    to all the people thinking miles or whoever is going to be a talent upgrade over lance, "better fit", or whatever, please think back to your take on the pollard for miller swap, the peja for artest swap, the dunleavy and murphy for sjax and al swap, etc, and consider whether you might just be overly optimistic as a rule.

    maybe this is the one that works out though. who knows.

    I think he expects to make the roster but to start the season in the D League. If he doesn't make the roster than we won't retain his rights. If he's on the roster then he can play in the D league until we need him.

    That is unfair. There have been plenty of less talented, but better fit players who have come onto a team and been better for the team than the more talented player.

    Or it could be a play to make the Pacers bid against themselves. Or it could be legit.

    Well doesn't that tell you the Pacers would then think pretty highly of him as an UDFA?

    So on one hand this guy says the Hornets have no interest in Lance, now he apparently has done a 180 and they do.

    I am not too sure I am believing him one way or the other. Are their any other sources reporting Charlotte's interest in Lance?

    Yip, I think they have high hopes. But they only gave him $25k in guaranteed money. So he's not a big investment yet.

    This doesn't really confirm anything though, their source is the Rick Bonnell tweet.

    It doesn't say there was a "meeting".
