Charlie would fit well on a lot of the teams in the West. I still think he can be a David West type player playing with a great PG like a Paul. Hes got more post moves than West, and although not the rebounder hes still solid when hes motivated, which IMO he will be once hes out of that shithole.

- Add Kapono to the list of available players. Apparently BC fielding offers from mostly Western Conference teams right now who are looking to beef up there teams for a playoff wrong. Only drawback is trying to move Kapono's large contract.

- WOW, apparently the Clippers want in on the Mike Miller sweepstakes, but the Grizz seem to be getting a little greedy now.

If the Grizzlies accepted a trade for Kyle Lowry involving only Von Wafer and a low first round pick then I'd personally would set a curse upon the tool that is the GM of the Grizzlies. Fuck, the last thing I want to see is Denver get a PG.

awesome job doc.
But yeah after the Bibby trade and finalization of the Kidd trade, not much more will happen.
I think BCs just going to stand pat and make some big moves this summer.

Speaking of the Grizz Bel, here's another one I just read at Sports Illustrated.

*RUMOUR*

- Apparently you can add the Pacers to the group of teams interested in acquiring Mike Miller.

Why would the Pacers want Miller? That makes absolutely no sense. Are they gonna play Granger at PF or something? Dunleavy and Granger start at the 2 and 3. Definately made up.

I dunno whered id like to see Miller end up. If he ends up in DAL or DEN I'll be pissed, but if he ends up in ORL I'll be more pissed.

I hope he ends up wit NO.

- Apparently the Magic are looking at adding a little more size and rebounding and are interested in Kurt Thomas.

Thomas said he has enjoyed his time in Seattle.

"It's been great here. My teammates have been outstanding. The coaches have been great here," Thomas said. "The organization has been great, the fans. The city is beautiful up here. So I have really enjoyed myself."

- Just caught this one that was apparently discussed in Orlando a couple hours ago.

Quote:
Brad Miller and Garcia to Orlando

Garrity (expiring), Arroyo (expiring), Bogans (1 year left on contract) and a future 1st rounder to Sac-Town

Why Orlando does it - Getting Miller beside Howard gives them the best starting front court in the east by far and Garcia coming off the bench at the SG/SF spot >>>>>>>> Bogans. This makes the Magic a legit contender to come out of the east IMO.

Why the Kings do it - Well they pretty much just gave Bibby away for expirings so it is obvious. They get cap space for this offseason/beyond and a future 1st rounder.

I like Garcia. I guess the Kings have to give him up to rid themselves of Miller.

*3-WAY TRADE RUMOUR*

- According to this rumour, there's talk that its actually gaining legs and it might just happen.

A report on ESPN.com last night also said that the Nets, Knicks and Heat have had discussions about a three-way deal that would send Carter to the Knicks, Eddy Curry to Miami and the expiring contracts of Jason Williams and Ricky Davis to New Jersey.

The Garcia/Miller trade to ORL would be an absolute steal for ORL. I think they could come close to beating Detroit if that trade went down the way Miller has played this year and Garcia is also very solid.

The NY/MIA/NJ trade makes too much sense to happen.

Orlando is believed to be the favorites because of their expiring contracts they can give to the Sonics.

they would crucify Vince in New York. That would be outstanding.
