    NBA Team#31 - Salarytown Ghosts

    "The total? It's over $60 million, depending on the buyout amounts for Watson and Thomas. Bruce Bowen of the Milwaukee Bucks could join that list soon too, since his $4 million contract is only guaranteed for $2 million if waived by August 10th. That's a heck of a lot of money attributed to zero production."

    That accumulative value equates to team #31 in the NBA. We can call them the Salarytown Ghosts. Let's take a look at the roster.

    T. Thomas F
    McDyess PF/C
    Oberto F
    Foyle C
    Hendrix F
    Tinsley G
    Mobley G
    Watson G
    Wallace PF/C
    Miles F
    Moore PF/C

    11 guys, someone has to buy out at least 2 more players, we need another F & G and another PF that's not on geritol.

    That team would beat last year's post-All Star Pistons.

    Raptors get Belinelli in trade with Warriors | Sports | Reuters

    The Toronto Raptors acquired Italian guard Marco Belinelli from the Golden State Warriors in exchange for forward Devean George, the NBA team said on Thursday. Taken with the 18th overall pick in the 2007 NBA draft by Golden State, Belinelli averaged 8.9 points, 2.1 assists, 1.7 rebounds in 42 games last season for the Warriors.
    "Marco fills a void at the wing position where his shooting and scoring strengths will be needed," said Raptors president Bryan Colangelo in a statement. "Marco's versatility and playmaking abilities make him a very valuable piece for us."

    Toronto - America's Eurobasket team.

    That is why I'm not sure why they traded him for a scrub really.

    That's a good move for Tor, Colangelo (my 2nd favorite GM) is getting it done. We often talk about how our ownership handcuffed our GM, but imagine if Tor would just let Colangelo do his job.

    Re: Leon Powe possibly going to the Cavaliers

    The only position I want to see us reach at right now, is center. We have plenty of forwards.

    I think the way we see Powe and Chandler, is the same way other teams see Amir and Sheed. Familiarity breeds contempt, and absence (distance) makes the heart grow fonder.

    Roscoe, I'd love to get a center. But who's out there besides Ben that fits the bill?
