Fisher to Houston... for Jordan Hill ?!?!?!?? wtf
post #6347 of 27206
D Fish to the rockets for Jordan Hill and a pick.

Fish has been incredibly slow and awful this season, but it's still sad to see him go. Would have liked to see him retire as a Laker.

Correction: D Fish and a 2012 1rd Pick for Jordan Hill.

I love the little snippet from ESPN:

Wallace is a player long admired by Orlando and was part of the three-team trade construction lined up by the Nets in December that nearly brought Dwight Howard to the Nets before the season even started.

I seriously still think howard will be traded in the offseason. the "opting in" of howard for one more year helps both sides save face - but in reality just prolongs the agony of him eventually leaving.

The Los Angeles Lakers traded longtime point guard Derek Fisher after acquiring Ramon Sessions earlier in the day, according to sources.

Fisher, who has spent 13 of his 16 NBA seasons with the Lakers, was dealt to the Houston Rockets for Jordan Hill, sources told ESPN The Magazine's Ric Bucher. The Lakers will also send a first-round pick, which was previously acquired from Dallas, in this year's draft.

this reeks of another salary dump. sad for fisher... fisher may be a defensive liability, but he's proven to have ultimate poise in crunch time (making the right pass, play, shot) 99% of the time.

fisher still has a player option next year... its obvious he'd just take the option for the last of his contract and probably retire a laker...but it was never really up to him in the end.

Damn, I thought the Lakers promised never to let Fisher go because of his daughters condition? It looks like the Rockets will buy him out and maybe eventually, the Lakers can get him back?

Jordan Hill is not a bad back-up PF/C, McRoberts and Murphy just isn't getting the job done and Hill has been decent when he got some playing time in Houston, he was doing well before they signed Dalembert.



What?

Not sure about this one. Young is such a ball hog. Better than Foye at SG I guess.

Sounds like the Lakers agree....dumped both first rounders.

Why the hell would Denver do this?

Yeah, Nick Young is a ball hog, but since you have Chris Paul handling the rock and making passes, it should be a non-issue. Young will just need to make sure he sets himself up to make shots while Paul feeds it to him.

Hill trade sounds decent. They get much better now, and lose out on a late first rounder. Not sure you can really hope to get much better than a Hill type player at that point in the draft anyway.

Brown NEEDS to bench Mruphy, fuck his three point shot, and have a nice tight rotation of McRoberts/Hill/Gasol/Bynum. Give the starters plenty of rest and keep Baynums min around 30 or so a game the rest of the way. Keep him healthy and fresh and give Hill and McRoberts time to find their place.

They unload Nene's contract for a cheaper McGee contract. I don't think Denver is high on McGee, but they need to free up some $$$ because Danilo is up for extension after this year and will want more money. Makes sense.

Except that they just signed Nene to a contract and he is one of the few true centers in the league. Not an easy piece to replace.
