Isn't Dampy's contract an expiring one this year?

Not this summer but the following. This is actually a pretty compelling read on how Damp's goofy contract could land the Mavs a superstar in the 2010 sweepstakes, provided they don't trade him now or midseason:

Dallas Basketball - Dallas Mavericks Basketball News and Links

Dampier has a very specific role on the Mavericks and he actually performs it pretty well. I don't see how having him this season is a bad thing. The only thing I'd want to move him for right now is a legitimate scoring 2. Michael Redd would be a guy I'd like in that scenario if it weren't for his ACL and MCL woes.

Dudes. Guys. I'm incredibly excited about Boozer potentially coming to Chicago. He is exactly what the team needs.

Rose
Salmons
Deng
Boozer
Noah

We wouldn't be the deepest team in the league, obviously, but that starting five is fierce as hell.

And the Lakers are fools if they let Lamar Odom get away.

The Damp / DUST thing is insane.

Why isn't Okie City making a move on Odom right now? They must be working on David Lee or Millsap now, I guess.

Yeah, the DUST scenario presents some very interesting possibilities. I'm actually really excited about it. If the Mavs have proved anything so far this offseason, it's that they're still willing to spend early and often. I think that might be able to land them someone like Amare, LaMarcus, Bosh, or *cringe* Wade. Of those, I think Wade is the best fit. And I fucking hate admitting that.

No way Odom signs with Hijack City. He says he loves candy the beach too much.

If the Zombie Sonics turned their arena into Wonka's factory, they may have a shot.

And the Magic signed Bass-o-Matic. Nice!

And the Magic just matched for Gortat, keeping him in Orlando for five years.

I thought the full MLE was too much for him, but now the Fightin' YLBs have pilfered him AND the Basshole. I'm not happy right now.

I really do think they're going to try and shop Gortat around to find some other players to fill out the roster.

My guess is that Otis Smith is pissed that he doesn't get HDNet anymore.

Apparently Gortat and his people are unhappy about the match. Gortat wants more PT and doesn't want to be Dwight's backup anymore. He and his agent requested that the Magic not match, and when they did match, it came as a surprise and a disappointment to him. This all via his agent.

I don't know about the practice of forcing someone who doesn't want to play for you anymore to play for you.

Marcin Gortat needs to look in the mirror and realize that he is Marcin Gortat. An intensely mediocre NBA basketball player. He is in no position to make demands.

Intensely mediocre, but Polish.

Hey, the Magic are close to signing Matt Barnes. If that Redick and Johnson for Duhon trade goes through... that'd be great, too.

This is turning into a 2k9 line-up.
