Is Iverson even in Denver yet? I wonder if he made it out, or if he's stuck somewhere. I heard a bunch of flights into and out of Denver were cancelled today.

True, but I think they will still be on the books for 60+million.

Losing 10 mil form AI, 7 mil from Joe Smith, and 11 mil from Mash...

Yeah, that's how bad they were in terms of cap. What you get with Dalembert, Korver, Webber eating almost 40 mil.

I heard Workenstein this AM on the radio say they expect to have 1000 #3 Iverson jersey's in the team store today. (Got to think that's delayed some because of the weather though)

Damn good thing. Iverson wasn't likely to play, which would have left the Nuggets with a starting lineup of Boykins, Diawara, Kleiza, Nene & Camby.

Let it snow, let it snow......
I mentioned this in the other thread, but the Nugs are trying to get the NBA to postpone the game.

I don't think they'll keep Dre.. Billy King said they wanted guys who expired this year. He's a solid PG, I think you can move him at the deadline to a team like the Lakers for another expiring deal.

I think it would have been stupider for King to deal Iverson to another Atlantic division team.

Either they trade Miller within the next three days, or they cannot trade him this season.

The Lakers would not want Miller; he cannot shoot. Jackson likes his PG's to be able to knock down 18-20 footers with consistency. Acquiring Miller would be like getting Gary Payton again and we all know how that turned out.

Jackson likes guys like Paxson, Kerr, Armstrong, Parker and Farmer. Guys who can actually shoot. That is why they went overseas and signed Shammond Williams, who is a hell of shooter but not much of a playmaker.

Something about the Triangle offense that requires the PG to be able to knock down jumpers with consistency.

They're saying here that the Sixers will be under the cap after this season.

They have another expiring deal besides Mashburn, Kevin Ollie, I think.

Funny thing about that is this -- Although we love Camby, we also give him crap endlessly about being Fragile Marcus. With all the games he's missed due to injury, would you ever imagine a situation where HE was the only starter on the floor?

Poor Marcus.

Anybody want to take a bet on who comes back first, Carmelo or Camby?

Andre In Play?: Don’t pick up that Andre Miller Sixers jersey just yet. Word is Andre may be on the move again as teams have been gauging Philly’s commitment to him. Word is they may be willing to re-trade him for the right parts. Miller was a perfect fit for the 76ers as they started life after Iverson, but the common belief is Andre was not happy to go from a winner to a loser, and that if a better spot could be found his people have encouraged a deal. The Lakers had been linked to interest as have the Cavaliers, so there are teams on the phone. The question becomes what's the package, and would that package give Philly enough chips to land two picks in the top of the 2007 draft class? It’s been said several times that Philly views either Greg Oden, Kevin Durant or Joakim Noah as their next franchise guy – could dealing Andre Miller now yield a shot at two of the three? Wouldn’t that be a steal for the 76ers?
