    I guess, JD trades for Amare only when he can get verbal agreement for contract extension.

    That news is 6 days ago Abe Froemen . Amare is most likely going to chicago.

    I hope something can still be done.

    Hanging onto exipring contracts is one of the more overrated aspects of the NBA in my opinion. It rarely seems to workout as planned. Prime FA's usually re-sign with their old teams or are traded to teams that they do re-sign with before hand. Then you have to go out and overpay for players who were not your 1st choice because you have to put a roster together for the upcomming season.

    We saw a mini preview of this 3 years ago when Mohammed was given that 5 year deal. What was he - plan C or D. I know he was not the 1st choice.

    In our case we would probably end up overpaying for Boozer. That is if we are lucky because there is no gurantee that he would want to come here.

    Different times. How many teams will be looking to shed salary and would prefer expiring contracts or even nothing in return? Or we could be the facilitator in a three way deal.

    We will have more cap room than any other team except one, and there is NO WAY something does not happen this summer. Joe is holding all the cards. Its just a question of taking the best deal that presents itself. The more patient he his, the better that deal is likely to be, as team's get more desperate to off load salaries.

    did the pistons actually offer sheed and amir? judging by mccoskey's latest blog...it's entirely possible (and that it may still be an open offer should kerr change his mind):

    Cleveland is a lock for the 6 game ECF. At the least.

    And 200 bucks says that they are in the Finals.

    It's possible that our points in the paint would go up a little.

    The no-fastbreaks-ever-again style basketball we'd be playing after that trade would be so predictable.

    Every posession would go like this:
    0-10 seconds: Stuckey walks the ball up the court and gives it to Prince.
    10-20 seconds: Prince holds the ball in his left hand away from the defender (Note: Shaq arrives and posts up around 15-18 second mark
    20-24 seconds: We play one of the following sets:
    • Shaq gets the ball in the low post and scores with 1 second left on the shot clock.
    • Prince tries to lob the ball to Shaq and turns it over.
    • Prince gives the ball back to Stuckey for an offensive foul or a contested, off-balance 3pt attempt at the buzzer.
    For the entire posession, Rip tries to convince Amare to set a screen for him.

    I don't know about that deal. Think I would rather finish out the season with what we have and take our chances this summer.
