Hollinger: Summer Transactions - Let's Review
Hollinger discusses the summer of transactions from around the association. This is what he had to say about some of our boys. :D :(

Will Solomon - Will Solomon and Lorenzen Wright signed with the Raptors and the Cavs, respectively, for the minimum. They both are overpaid. Solomon washed out of the league five years ago, and his numbers from Europe have been unimpressive since; Wright was such a horrific bust with the Hawks that he didn't play even though they were desperate for frontcourt help. There's little evidence that either player belongs in the league.

Roko Ukic - Toronto inked Croatian guard Roko Ukic to back up Calderon; his European stats suggest he's a marginal backup at best and might not be up to the challenge.

What about the JO trade. Why didn't ESPN talk about that?

The article said that they already covered the J.O. trade previously so they are not going to repeat themselves.

Hey Doc, I think you missed one of our guys at the very bottom:


Tarence Kinsey played well for Memphis two years ago and could help Cleveland with his athleticism on the wing. ... Ditto for Hassan Adams in Toronto; the Raptors really can use a guy like this.
