Pacific

LAL

Northwest (or whatever you want to call it)
Minnesota

Not ideal but not any worse than what we have currently.

See my thread on Gen board. Thats the easy fix. I proposed a bolder move as well.
Or I'll just post it here

The Maloofs are finalizing an agreement to sell the Sacramento Kings to the Hansen-Ballmer led Seattle group, sources tell Yahoo! Sports. The deal will sell the Kings for approximately $500 million, with the Seattle group seeking relocation to Key Arena for the 2013-'14 season. The Seattle group's plans, with support of the NBA, is to play two seasons in Key Arena before moving into a new Seattle arena, sources say. No agreement signed, but one source describes deal as "1st and goal at 1." Maloofs history of changing course late still makes many uneasy. The Maloofs are expected to keep an extremely small percentage of team, but will have no real input or say in franchise, sources say.


Might this be the time to re-draw division lines?


If Kings are worth $500 million, I wonder how much the Wolves are. It gotta be higher, right?

I surely hope so.

I'd also like to know by how much the Seattle group overpaid for the Kings. I'd assume they were willing to pay a bit more than market value to get a team back to Seattle.

Poor Kings fans, by the way. I remember the days when I loved watching the Kings in the early 2000's.

If you haven't ever seen "Sonicgate" I think it is worth watching for any NBA fan. I found the whole hour+ long documentary on YouTube. It chronicles how Seattle lost the Sonics. It is well-done, but makes you really hate the idea of anyone losing their team to another market. The Sonics fans at the end lament the same thing saying, "Yeah I want us to get another team someday, but I know it will probably just mean us stealing someone else's team and I wouldn't wish that on any fan."

Just realized something. If it indeed goes through, I'd be shocked if any other team won the Draft Lottery.

My other thought. The SonicKings have some of the NBAs most dislikeable players in Cousins and Evans. Tough for a fan base that used to watch Durant.

One final thought. It'd be cool if Smart was fired and they named Nate McMillan their new coach.

He would be just about untouchable, but the Pacers should trade Granger to us and build around George and Dr. Hibbert.

I realize that. Was just saying he's a stud. Can't believe Pacers been forcing him to play SG. He's home now.

I don't think I'll ever let the Flynn for 10th pick (George) go. I just can't. It bothers me so much. We knew we weren't going to get him with our 16th pick and Flynn wasn't going to live up to being a top 10 pick, even before the injury. Figured after the Jazz took Hayward, that was our chance, and Kahn blew it. Damn shame.

Wasn't that rumor shot down as being not on the table?

I remember Bird later on shot it down but I feel Bird was just keeping it on the down low. They really needed a PG at the time and Flynn still had value. Regardless, we should used that 16th pick as incentive to get into the top 10 instead of blowing it on Webster. Trade down with our 4th pick!

If you had a chance, would you trade for DeMarcus Cousins? Could Adelman fix him, or would he be another Beasley/Randolph?

Mavs with a big OT win in Sac. We better watch out for Mavs & Lakers. In a blink of an eye we could be sitting at 12th place.
