post #4726 of 27206
i read the odom trade as another instance of jimmy buss' "dont f*ck with me" attitude. Same as him trading ariza. he seems still to be at that stage where he needs to assert his alpha-as-f*ckness. anybody embarrasses him and they get traded for ... a draft pick?

2 years? Is that the longest he can get? If I were him, with his injury history, I'd try and get less annual salary but for a longer term.

So basically, if they trade for any superstar player, they become a two-man team (albeit a very good two-man team) with a bunch of mediocre role players and no cap flexibilty until 2015.

Why have to take back Hedo? I thought Magic amnestied Arenas. Shouldn't they be able to take both Gasol and Bynum's contracts?

Just out of curiosity, is it legal to trade for Turkoglu's contract and then amnesty him?


 I would really be shocked if any team can trade for Dwight without having to take back Turkoglu's contract. That's just the cost you have to incur for Dwight. Also, you can't amnesty players aquired in a trade. So the Lakers would be stuck with Turk.

 

Also, if the Lakers do get Dwight without Turkoglu, they will still be over the cap next year. $28M (Kobe) + $20M (Dwight) + $6M (Walton) + $4M (Blake) + $3M (Fish) = $61M. And this includes amnestying Artest. Plus, that's only 6 players. Fill out the roster with other veteran minum players and you're looking at $70M to start the season.

 

I'm sure they can do some maneuvering, but not enough to have the cap space to sign a max contract player. And again, this is with somehow not getting saddled with Turkoglu's contract.

Nah, their getting their pick, 2012 draft seems to be loaded with good talent so that should be enough.
Fuck that if they want Gordon, Aminu, Bledsoe, Kaman plus the pick for CP3? A whole goddamn team?
These league officials are insane.
post #4733 of 27206
Holy shit, again?

Its really time for David Stern to step down. This shit is ridiculous.
post #4734 of 27206
Yup, its true. Even with a loaded offer I think the league will shut down the offer. I really don't see how any team can pry CP3 from NO's (Stern's) hands.

What's with all this CP3 AX34 TT6 shit?

The Union really needs to step in now. It's fucking ridiculous at this point.

Sure they can. Just trade him for Dwight.

Wasn't CP supposed to pursue litigation today? I mean with Odom traded to Dallas, that means the original LAL-NO trade can't be completed...

Just got word the Clips/CP3 trade is definitely off. Can only be revived if NBA bends on its super-steep asking price. This is I-N-S-A-N-E.

CP3 needs to sue already
