Well, since they don't want longterm salary...

Grizzlies make a trade with Cavaliers to clear salary.

Nice move by the Cavaliers to capitalize on the Grizzlies situation although all the parts are fairly minor. The future first is likely Memphis' '15 and most likely lotto-protected. We'll see if this hurts the Grizzlies depth down the stretch.

That effectively ends the Rudy Gay speculation.

i'd be very interested in a trade for josh selby. dude was absolutely lights out from 3 in summer league. good move by cavs , first rounders likely to be weak but still good for just taking on very little salary next year.

I think I would be more interested in bringing back Elliington with the way we're shooting the ball from three this season.

Had a dream we traded Pek for Gortat. I was waiting like a whole hour for the new game to start to see how he fit in.

Funny, I had a dream that Gelabale and Johnson were both injured and I was like damn I really wanted to see them play.

Great quote from Hanneman on pregame about the state of the Wolves: "Believe me, we have seen our share of sinking teams around here. This team is not sinking."

Also, Tom and Jim together again! (just for pregame/postgame)

Looking at this years Draft, Shabazz looks like the best fit for our team. Mcelmore is a close second but having a wing that can play both SG and SF like shabazz can is a bigger need.

One of the things you notice about him is that he has the intensity of a player that wants to be great. He's a decent catch and shoot player and a slasher. two things we need. he cant really dribble really well and his playmaking isnt great, but our team has so much of thast already its not something that we need.

Maybe package dwill to a lottery team in hopes to get either of them?

Suns lost two assistants after firing Gentry. I found this interesting

Elston Turner’s frustrations run deeper. The longtime head assistant on Rick Adelman’s staff at various outposts, he was denied the chance to leave the Suns in 2011 by Phoenix brass when Adelman was hired by the Minnesota Timberwolves. Adelman wanted his number two by his side up north, and the Suns refused to let Turner out of his contract. Thinking that this was a sign that Turner would be first in line should Gentry step aside, he hung in there.

Only to be passed over by Hunter, who wasn’t even on the Suns bench for the 41-game Gentry tenure.
