  • NBA Offseason thread

    For the sake of not cluttering the board with every move made in free agency/trades, let's condense this all into one thread.

    I'll kick it off with the latest whispers about the hottest story out there right now, Allen Iverson. The rumors (and these are just rumors at this point) are that three teams are seriously in the mix. Golden State, Denver and Boston are all making a push with the Warriors having the edge at the moment. GS is rumored to be offering a package that includes Baron Davis, but the 76ers want Ike Diogu included and the Warriors aren't budging on him, yet. Denver is said to be making the strongest push, but need to get a 3rd team involved to make it work. Boston is still in the race, but it looks like Philly is trying their damndest to send Iverson to the Western Conference.

    Jamal Magloire is also said to be on the trade block.

    Screw that. If Mock can start a thread for every thought that pops into his alcohol riddled brain, we can start a thread on every NBA move.

    I know that the Nugs are trying to get involved in the deal that Atlanta is working on with Al Harrington. Apparently their owners can only take back players with limited years on their contracts due to the legal struggle, and neither Indiana nor Golden State can make anything work, so we would be the third team in that deal.

        There's also talk of a 6 team trade being discussed with Boston, Philly, Sacramento and three other unnamed teams involved. No idea who's going where in that one, but like I said, this is all just the rumors that are going around these days.

          Jacob (Indianapolis IN): Bill, there's a wild internet rumor floating around right now that there is a 6-team trade brewing in the NBA including IND, SAC, BOS, GSW, PHIL, ATL ... any truth to this?

          Bill Simmons: Any time the words "wild internet rumor" and "NBA" are involved, I don't pay attention. There's just a zero percent track record of success.

            Wow, a 6-team trade would be epic. That's gotta be like some sort of record.

              Warriors want Al Harrington, appear to be out of the running for Iverson

              As for the Warriors' backcourt, two sources indicated the team will not pursue Allen Iverson, whom the Sixers have put on the trading block. Instead, the Warriors appear to be gambling that point guard Baron Davis can return to his All-Star form and remain healthy for an entire season.

                Well...

                The Clippers officially resigned Sam Cassell and signed Tim Thomas.

                Corey Magette is still on the trading block but we apparently aren't getting **** for offers.

                Good as far as I am concerned, Magette goes brain dead with his one on five approach at times and will never be a good defensive player but that dude goes to the basket in a league filled with jump shooters.

                Not to mention that he is signed for 3 more years at a very reasonable salary by NBA standards.

                I hope he can be happy coming off the bench because that really is what he is best suited for IMO.

                  Press conference going on right now, Carmelo has signed the original 5 year deal as was reported and won't be going for the 3 year + option year type of deal that Lebron signed.

                    Spurs sign Point Guard, extend offers to two centers
                    By Johnny Ludden
                    Express-News Staff Writer

                    The Spurs moved quickly when the NBA’s free-agent signing period began Wednesday, signing point guard Jacque Vaughn and extending offer sheets to centers Francisco Elson and Jackie Butler.

                    Elson and Butler are restricted free agents, so Denver and New York have seven days to match the offers. The Knicks have already indicated they want to keep Butler.
                    The Spurs extended offers to both Elson and Butler in part because they were unable to reach agreement with former second-round pick Robertas Javtokas. Javtokas is preparing to play in Greece, but the Spurs haven’t given up hope they will be able to resume negotiations with him, if needed.
                    Vaughn, who signed a one-year contract for the league minimum, will compete with Beno Udrih for the backup point-guard job.

                      What can you guys tell a Spurs fan about Francisco Elson?

                      I mean, I'm not expecting him to become a stellar acquisition but is he solid enough to play 15-20 mins a game and besides TD, how solid can he be?

                      I dont think Spurs fans are expecting anything big from him but just someone who can get the rebound, play tough defense and make an occasional shot.

                          Hahaha, its not the greatest or even solid.

                          But as long as Tim Duncan, Manu and Tony Parker are healthy, they will be up there w/ Dallas as the Western Conference favorites for next season.

                          Spurs need to get a couple of able bodies down low and got a third PG in Vaughn. Its not glamorous but when the Spurs have been a glamorous offseason team.

                            I'll tell you what, if the C's don't get Iverson, I will be in a funk. That just sucks. That's like the Bronco's having a legit rumor about landing Tom Brady for Ashley Lelie, Tatum Bell, and Jake Plummer and it falling through at the last moment because the Patriots don't want to trade him within the conference.

                            AARRGGHHHHHH!!! Keep hope alive, Gonzo. Keep hope alive!!!

                              Hollinger thinks Butler is a nice player...seems like a very Spurish move...
