Andre Iguodala signs a 6 year, 80 million dollar deal to stay in Philly with Brand and company. Nice move, Philly. Like I hoped you would, you showed him the money!
This moves Philly into the elite of the JV eastern conference. With Iggy and Brand's future locked up I think Philly can be 4 or 5 games over .500 and make some noise in the playoffs. Unfortunately, I the 4 seed nets them Boston in round 2.
3 team trade: Bucks, Cavs, and Oklahoma City.
-Cavs get: Mo Williams
-Bucks get: Damon Jones, Luke Ridnour and a 2009 NBA fantasy basketball subscription. Oh, and some cap relief.
-Oklahoma City gets: Joe Smith, Desmond Mason, and a swift kick to the balls.
The Cavs get a guy who can shoot 3's and hand out the occasional dish. Wait, did someone tell them they had Boobie Gibson? uh oh, its a little repetitive. At least they got rid of some trash (good trash, they were expiring contracts). It is, however, a major upgrade at the PG position assuming they don't want Boobie to play there anymore. But, if this is Cleveland's way of helping Lebron I think his hardest decision would be whether he wants to wear blue and orange, blue and grey, or some Euro color in 2010. I like Mo, don't get me wrong. But I think what they need is a big guy not named Ben Wallace or Zadrunia;sodifjaslis Illgaua;lskdjfa;lsjskis. Does Danny Ferry have Bryant Reeves phone number?
Bucks give up their second best player for Luke Ridnour and Damon Jones. Nuff said.
Oklahoma City trades for a 3 and a 4? Did Cleveland just pritchslap someone? Is this a Ferryslap?
Brandon Roy will have arthroscopic knee surgery on Thursday to fix a tear in the meniscus that was revealed by MRI on Tuesday. Shit shit shit shit shit shit shit shit. I don't even want to comment on this until the surgery is done and a time table has been set. Oh boy..
