Orlando is tanking the right way. They're going to do the same thing Morey did in Houston this season. They have many talented players on rookie deals, along with much cap space, to enable the Magic to make great trades next season.
Thanks, Ernie Grunfeld.

Brooks played Mahinmi, Smith, and Bogdanovic at the same time. Wonder why the Wizards lost momentum at that time?

Tobias Harris isn't getting minutes on that team, but he has some skills. It's very rare for guys like that to break out on a new team, but if a player is going to do it, I wouldn't be surprised if it is Harris.

Gotta wonder what their plan is after the season - or if they even have a plan. If Ellis opts out of his contract, they'll have 3 guards as free agents that are all trying to get contracts of 10 mil plus per year - and NONE of them are worth it.

I gotta wonder if they did this trade thinking that they had a deal set up with Atlanta to send Ellis there for Josh Smith. Either way, the effect is - they might win one game against Miami in the 1st round of the playoffs - if they're lucky. And they give up 2 young cheap players that could have helped them next season and for years to come.

Not that it necessarily helps them build a winner for next season, but the Bucks are in a position to just let all 3 of their guys walk and still have max cap space. I doubt they'll do it because they never rebuild, but they're in a prime position to strategically tank for one season with the aim being Wiggins or Parker and then turn things around really quickly. With Ilyasova playing better after a terrible start to the season, the only really bad contract they have is Gooden's at just under $7 million for the next two seasons.

Josh Selby was just waived by the Cavs, I say sign him to a 10-Day it wouldn't hurt. His athleticism is rediculous

+1 Selby is a scorer, and we need scorers. Too-bad Ernie is too-lazy, he only makes moves if he has-to (injury etc)

Come on now guys, no need to jump on Ernie for not signing a guy like Selby.

Selby is absolute garbage.

He was highly ranked coming out of high school, and wasn't even good in college at kU.

He's young, and it's easy to look at that ranking coming out of high school and think that he still has a lot of "potential," but the reality is he's just not good enough to play in the NBA.

I don't think it's fair to call him a scorer either, seeing as he can't get off the bench, and when he does, he has actually been terrible on offense. According to synergy, of the 458 NBA players that have seen game action this year, Selby ranks 453 in half court offense efficiency. 453/458!!! That's bad!!!

Selby will be a career D-Leaguer.

It'll be even more impressive if/when they land Josh Smith. Said it once, said it again - when that Rocket squad is clicking, they can take anyone in 7.


Is Josh Smith a "moneyball" player? He has things that the advanced stats would like. However his shot selection seems to make him less attractive especially for a high usage and high-priced acquisition.

Sounds like being treated like a star way too soon by lots of parasites was the biggest problem. Kid is still just 21. Maybe a year in Europe would force him to work on much needed maturity and fundamentals - particularly how to play off the ball (from what little I've seen of him - he needs to learn that, since he's not a legit PG).

Selby got outed and I do not believe what he said after the fact, not that it matters.
Thanks, Ernie Grunfeld.

LOL. I typed something in very similar, but then I decided I didn't want to be the one to say it. So thank you for that :lol:

I probably should not have. I don't think it is worthwhile to discuss other than to say Selby's few D-League games and this past summer league performances were similar to Lillard's and Waiters' best.

He hasn't played well in the NBA appearances he has made.

Selby was seldom used as a 3rd-string PG, this season practically not at all.

The Bucks have won 4-straight post-trade. With Dalembert back and JJ part of their rotation, the Bucks are maintaining their lead over Philly comfortably.

Looks like the Hawks are giving Shelvin Mack a try:

The Atlanta Hawks will sign Shelvin Mack.

Jeremy Tyler was waived by the Hawks on Wednesday to create a roster spot.

Mack played last season for the Washington Wizards, but was waived before the start of the season. After a stint in the D-League, Mack was re-signed by the Wizards in December and later signed two 10-day deals with the Philadelphia 76ers.

Mack has averaged 20.1 points, 7.5 assists and 4.3 rebounds in 40.3 minutes per game in the D-League this season.


I really liked Mack at Butler in the Tournament. I wish he had been decent on the Wizards, and wish him all the best at Atlanta.

....and Jeremy Tyler was waived, my first thought was that "he's gotta be better than Vesely "

Wow. And I remember being befuddled as to why Orlando gave up Dwight and didn't even get Bynum back in the transaction. Now I see why.

And why so many here were uninterested in trying to get Bynum.

The Dallas Mavericks are planning on signing Chris Wright from the Iowa Energy.

Wright, a point guard out of Georgetown, is averaging 15.5 points, 7.0 assists and 4.3 rebounds per game with the Energy.

Wright will replace the recently waived Dominique Jones on the roster.


1. I wonder if CW is better than Price...or JW?

2. Cuban paid $3 mil to get Jones, was it just a tax write-off that year? Cuban gambles big I guess.
