They tried to trade Hill with no takers. Young & Farmar only make $1.1mil and iirc they aren't even signed past this season, (Youngs is players option next year) they were one year contracts so all they could really so id either resign or not.
Lakers really only have Kobe and Nash guaranteed for next year, well I think Marshall and Sacre has a year left but those are less than $1m players.
Clippers too, despite Griffin and Jordan, the team can be very, very bad in rebounding. Sometimes it is too easy to get an offense rebound against them and it is even worse when the back up is Hollins and Mullens. One of the biggest mistake Rivers made this year is signing Turkoglu and using him as a back-up PF fro Griffin and now they are trying to sign Big Baby Davis because they finally realized they aren't deep when it comes to their front court.
I laughed when Russell Westbrook pulled up from Siberia with 35 seconds left and the Thunder down 4. Yup, he's back. KD went for 42 and 10...you'd think you'd want him to take that shot instead of Westbrook in his second game back from injury... Edited by diadem - 2/24/14 at 7:45am
that would require foresight and planning, have you seen them this year??
Dolan would probably pay Lin $50mln now if he could get a do over.
The good news for the Knicks is that now that we have bought out Ulrich and MWP, we get to bring in two stiffs that either no one else wanted or that haven't played all year. We could have Copeland on the team but Woodson, in his inifinite wisdom, demanded that the Knicks carry 4 point gards this year (plus Chris Smith earlier), even though he was going to play Felton huge minutes, come hell or highwater. Its not like the Knicks played their best basketball of the year when Ulrich started and Murray backed him up through the Texas trip. Its not like we can use a guy like Copeland off the bench, a big that can score from anywhere on the court. We have Melo and he will carry us.
