I'd do KG for Tyrus, Duhon, PJ, and EITHER Nocioni or our swap option w/NYK, but not both.

With the way Gordon has been playing lately, I'd have a hard time trading him. Deng the same. Hinrich has been in a slump lately but he's a good young PG and I'd have a hard time trading him too.
huge difference between trading AI and trading KG... iverson brings more baggage than, um, a baggage handler, and philly had zero leverage 'cause everyone knew he had to be traded.

the only way minnesota should trade garnett is if they get young talent, picks and cap relief.

plus, a trade of thomas, duhon, brown and nocioni would be an illegal trade because the salaries don't match up.

in order for the deals to match up salary wise, the bulls would have to send Brown, Nocioni, Thomas, Duhon and either Deng or Sweetney. and minnesota would be stupid (which they have proven to be before) if they traded Garnett without getting a chip in the Oden lottery in return... so they would need the knicks pick swap rights, too.

if the bulls want garnett, they'll have to break the bank to do so. of course it would be easier if they could convince minnesota to take ben wallace's obscene contract in the deal, but that would just be silly on minnesota's part.

of course if the bulls hadn't signed wallace and just sat on the cap room, a trade for Garnett would be much, much easier. whoops.

(note... my trade has a RealGM trade ID of 3565923 if you'd like to check it out yourself)

If it gets the Celts one step closer to Greg Oden, I'm all for the 76ers winning.
Watched some of the OSU/IU game last night...that man would look amazing in green.

I would want him in Boston over Philly anyways, but Boston hasn't had any draft luck since Lenny Bias.

He's back!

Brown coming back to Philly, but not as coach

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Less than three weeks after Allen Iverson was traded, Larry Brown rejoined the Philadelphia 76ers, this time as an executive vice president instead of a coach.

The Sixers said early Saturday that Brown will assist team president Billy King and the basketball operations department, and work on other special projects.

"Oh yeah, I think he's very happy back in Philly," said Brown's agent, Joe Glass.

The move was expected after Philadelphia traded Iverson to Denver last month. The day after the deal, King said he was talking to Brown about the possibility of rejoining the franchise he coached to the 2001 NBA finals.

The 66-year-old Brown, fired by the Knicks in June after going 23-59 and clashing with team president Isiah Thomas in the Hall of Fame coach's only season in New York, had been acting as an unofficial Sixers consultant this season. Brown advised King on the Iverson trade.

Brown has been King's mentor since he hired him as an assistant coach in Indiana. When Brown came to Philadelphia in 1997, he brought King with him as vice president of basketball administration. King was named team president after Brown resigned in 2003.

One of basketball's most well-traveled coaches, Brown's job with the 76ers was his longest tenure with any team in his 34-year coaching career. He took the job at Detroit and led the Pistons to an NBA title in the first of his two seasons there before his one disastrous season in New York.

With the Knicks, Brown criticized players through the media and talked to the press without a public relations official present, both violating Madison Square Garden chairman James Dolan's policies. Also, the Knicks said Brown undermined Thomas by making trade offers to other teams, which he wasn't authorized to do.

The Knicks withheld the remainder of Brown's contract, which had four years and more than $40 million left, saying they fired Brown for cause. The dispute went before commissioner David Stern, but the sides agreed to a compromise in October before Stern's ruling, in which Brown got $18.5 million and both sides were freed of any future obligations to each other.

he'd look great in knicks blue and orange too... sure we may suck, but at least sucking leads to a great draft pick, so there's hope at the end of the tunnel

















oh wait...

Annnnd, Chris Webber is a free agent.

Washed up or not, he'd be a good mid-level exception signing by any title-contending team.

But hey, you did get Eddy Curry out of that right?

What, why are you laughing...

Eddy Curry hasn't been playing that bad recently.

Actually, the Knicks haven't been that bad at all.

They're lucky to be in the Atlantic, where everyone can be a winner!

It's like the Y League.

One of the best parts about being home for winter break is Mavericks games, and I just got back from my second of the season, the first being a Bobcats game the day after Christmas.

I love them.

Dallas should sign Chris Webber to the MLE. He could start center. He doesn't need to be a dominant scoring big because they have Dirk, and he would certainly be better than Dampier.

Webber sure as hell isn't what he was until 2003, but he's not completely washed up either. He excels in a running game, and that's what the Mavs play. In that environment, he could still put up 10-14ppg and 7-9rpg.

Mavs would love to have him in the playoffs.

Webber
Dirk
Howard
Harris
Terry

C-Webb wore out his welcome. What year is it?

webber's washed up... i wouldn't sink any long term money into him. if you wanna sign him to a pro-rated 1 year deal? could be worth it... anyone who gives him more than that though is a fool.

Just out of curiosity...if Isiah were to, say, get Cleveland to trade him LeBron for just Marbury+Franchise, would your opinion of him go up?

I realize that deal is never going to happen ever ever ever, but I'm just trying to gauge what it would take for your opinion of Isiah to go up.

Cleveland will never, ever trade LeBron James unless he wants to go.

The only way he'll leave is if he goes into free agency.

And Chris Webber will be in either Miami or Los Angeles.

I think Miami can sign him on the mid-level exception, I don't know.
