    Report: Pistons-Cavaliers deal falls apart because Richard Hamilton, Cavs could not agree on buyout | MLive.com

    For Rip it wasn't a play me or trade me,...but looks like he wanted to stick it to the Pistons and relax on their bench and continue to collect the cash.

    The Celtics just traded a guy who was last seen getting hauled off the court on a stretcher with a broken neck for cash.

    They've got the best record in the East and they made 3 different deals today. I guess Theo Ratliff wasn't available.

    This is shocking. You mean Rip didn't want to give up his lucrative, guaranteed multi-year contract to help out the team that has spent the last few months crapping on him and treating him like garbage?

    This trade deadline has been fun to watch, assuming you're not a Pistons fan. :yellowprison:

    I can't help but wonder if maybe the Pistons could have gotten this deal with Rip to go through if they had gotten the Head of Security involved.

    B-Diddy could have been Rip's new set up man or even fed him a few dunk attempts from his KIA. :sssh:

    so, while the entire league decided to shake up their rosters, JoeD did the thing he's doing best... wait and see. Well, with around 8 SG's, an over aged C and a bunch of mediocre players, there was no reason to do any trades. Well played

    Re: Reactions to the Celtics-OKC trade

    Other than maybe the Nets, who made a long term play, the Thunder had far and away the best day yesterday. If Perkins comes into the opportunity with his head on straight (and he gets over the injuries), he can transform the character of that team. He will have Durant's back and do the dirty work no one else on the team seems able to do. It seems a perfect fit and a really smart move.

    Celts sitting at $72M and Perkins wouldn't/couldn't be signed. Eye on the future.
    But letting Nate R. go ??? The guy can shoot.

    I don't understand why people get on Rip's case. He refused to give up $9M to go from a bad situation to a worse situation. Yeah, as fans we don't like it, but every single person would do exactly the same thing Rip did if we were in his shoes. It's not like it was the Celtics knocking on his door.

    He was going to get bought out by the Cavs, and likely picked up by Boston or another contender for a run this year and with the chance to get a contract next year. I can't blame him for wanting the guaranteed money, but he better not complain about his situation when he clearly had an out.

    I'm wondering if the whole benching Rip and making him look like a cancer was just a setup to pressure him into a discounted buyout.

    Maybe Rip called them out on it by not agreeing to it.
