Steve Nash examines options, says staying on Phoenix Suns no longer 'a home run' - ESPN

He says it could happen in a day.

No, LA is so far over the cap they have to match salaries. Now if JC was coming here the Raps could absorb the contract without sending equal salary in return cause they have room under the cap.

I really think it's down to Toronto and Dallas.

Why people get so irked at the idea of amnestying Jose is beyond me.
Because some think other teams are just gonna lay down and give the Raps whatever they need to be successful in the league. Some forget that besides all the teams being competitive they really dont want others to be more successful than them. Some forget people get fired for that.

If amnestying JC makes the team more successful then shake his hand, say thanks, give him 'Cuda's phone number and show him the door.

Thanks to whoever posted the twiter link on this board. some gems....



Dwight Jaynes: I will say that four years guaranteed with Gerald Wallace equals hundreds of missed layups. 1 minute ago


Mike Fisher: #Knicks believe they can lure Nashie w $5M a year? Divorced Dad. Last contract. Fraction of #Raptors bid. #everybodywantstoplayinNY 1 minute ago

Stefan Bondy
Dear Nets, I understand it’s crazy right now. I understand that you have only six players under contract for next season, only one of which is a starter. I ask, though, please, after this free agency period, please, allow me to write about basketball and players on the roster. I don’t want to write about Carmelo Anthony or Dwight Howard or cap space. Tidbits on Deron Williams’ mood don't excite me. I want to write about a meaningful game, win or lose.Signed, Beat Writer.


Tommy Beer: If anyone out there cares for Nets GM Billy King, please remind him that Joe Johnson will make $25 MM in 2015-16 (as a 35-year old). about 6 minutes ago


Mike Fisher: A leader of #Mavs #DeronQuest party will be Richard Preston Carlisle. W/ a name like that, he knows his way around a country club. now


Michael Lee: How have those Dwight Howard "Loyalty" shirts been selling? 2 minutes ago

Mike McGraw: If I were Pacers, I'd insist Blazers accept sign & trade for Hibbert for the full 5-yr max, just to make sure they really regret this move. about 5 minutes ago

Tommy Beer: If the #Nets trade for Joe Johnson, they’ll owe Johnson & Gerald Wallace a combined $129 million over the next 4 seasons. That's insanity. about 6 minutes ago



Bruce Arthur: Happy Canada Day. A country we can't completely screw up, no matter how we try. about 5 minutes ago

if there is anyone on here that knows Onekhmer, or hangs with him regularily, steer clear for the next little while, or be guilty by association, and end up boiling in Tar for Labour day.

Exactly. I expect disappointment as a Raps fan.
