I don't know what to say. I never gave you too much credit in the past, but it still looks like I gave you too much as it was.

BTW, despite the poor numbers he STILL lead the team in scoring at the time of the trade. Bosh was averaging like 12 PPG or something.
Nice little personal attack. Oh, how will I get through the day if you don't give me more credit? Anyone have a razor blade?

You talk about heart and refuse to admit that you are defending a guy who has the capability to simply quit on his team at any given moment if he feels like it.

And what does it have to do with Bosh? Why did you bring Bosh into the equation? Nobody was talking about Bosh. (I am not agreeing or disagreeing with you on Bosh, btw)

Vince shot 41% during his 20 game tankfest. He found a way to suck in all aspects of the game. If you were a fan when it happened, it was one of the most pathetic, ridiculous thing I've ever seen a healthy athlete pull to get traded.

The Kings have talked with the Bulls about a swap that would send Andres Nocioni and Drew Gooden to Sacramento for Brad Miller and John Salmons, according to ESPN.com

San Antonio, meanwhile, is in the hunt as well, pursuing Salmons -- with an offer of Bruce Bowen and Ime Udoka

The Mavericks have been offering Jerry Stackhouse's virtual expiring contract ($7 million this season, only $2 million guaranteed next season) and Brandon Bass ($826,000) to the Kings since this past summer, when Sacramento was shopping Ron Artest. The biggest obstacle for Dallas on a Salmons deal has been the Kings' insistence that the Mavericks -- lacking draft picks to sweeten the deal -- also take back guard Beno Udrih, who has four years and nearly $27 million remaining on his contract after this season.

There is another complication for interested parties: Sources revealed Tuesday that Salmons has a 15 percent trade kicker in his contract that would require the team that acquires him to pay him a bonus of nearly $2 million and add that figure to its payroll. Salmons otherwise would rank as one of the league's better bargains, earning just $5.1 million this season while averaging 18.3 points and shooting 47.2 percent from the field and 41.8 percent on 3-pointers.

The Wizards, sources said, quickly rebuffed Cleveland's offer of Wally Szczerbiak's $13.8 million expiring contract for former All-Star forward Antawn Jamison.

One source with knowledge of the Wizards' thinking said Tuesday that team president Ernie Grunfeld is determined to continue resisting interest in Jamison and Caron Butler because the club has renewed hope that injured starters Gilbert Arenas and Brendan Haywood will play in a small handful of games before the season ends, affording the Wiz an opportunity to evaluate the full team they hoped to field this season.

The Cavs, meanwhile, are expected to shift their focus from Jamison to making a final pitch (or three) for Clippers center Marcus Camby, after being convinced in this week's talks that the Wizards are not interested in parting with the 32-year-old in spite of their luxury-tax concerns.

The Clippers have been saying for weeks that Camby and rookie guard Eric Gordon are their only untouchables in trade talks, but history says Clippers owner Donald Sterling is bound to be tempted by the opportunity to remove Camby's $9.7 million from next season's payroll if presented with Szczerbiak's contract on deadline day ... unless L.A. can move Chris Kaman's longer contract first.

The Bulls have been shopping Larry Hughes and Gooden for months, but multiple executives suggested Tuesday night that Kirk Hinrich suddenly was closer to relocation than any other Bull entering the final day and a half of trading.

Minnesota, according to NBA front-office sources, has strong interest in Hinrich and is pursuing the 28-year-old to address a void at lead guard that hasn't been filled by Randy Foye (whose success this season came after a shift to shooting guard) or the undependable Sebastian Telfair.

The Wolves also have two expiring contracts of their own (Jason Collins and Rashad McCants) that they're prepared to shed.

The Kings and Knicks continue to discuss an alternative package for Miller, which would feature the $7.6 million expiring contract of New York's Malik Rose. Sacramento, though, also is seeking Nate Robinson in that scenario, which isn't going to happen because the Knicks -- fond as team president Donnie Walsh is of Miller dating to their Indiana days -- are too high on Robinson.

The Kings likewise have talked with Chicago about a still-developing swap that would net Andres Nocioni and Drew Gooden's $7.2 million expiring contract for Miller and swingman John Salmons.

It's pretty pathetic to bring up stats from 5 years ago. Vince did more for the Raptors than any other player ever. And shooting 41% when the team is literally running zero plays for you is pretty good. Bosh couldn't do that.

And Vince is way more durable than Bosh despite being 32 years of age. Vince has missed one game this year, 6 last year, and 0 the previous year. Bosh misses 12-15 games every year. At 24. Can you imagine when Bosh is 32? If he's not a wheelchair-bound cripple, he'll be missing about 50 games per season.

Marc Stein: Sources with knowledge of the talks confirmed Wednesday night that the Rockets and Clippers discussed a deal Wednesday that would send Baron Davis to the Rockets.

A source who has been in the know for years tells me that Joe Smith is keeping his fingers crossed that the Thunder do not find another trade for him now that he's back in Oklahoma City.

Smith, the source said, would like to do a buyout and then sign with the Boston Celtics as this season's version of P.J. Brown.

Portland now wants a first-round draft pick, a league executive familiar with the talks said Wednesday night. The Blazers and Nets have discussed several scenarios centering on Carter, including one that would send the eight-time All-Star guard, Maurice Ager and Chris Douglas-Roberts to the Blazers for Raef LaFrentz, Travis Outlaw and Sergio Rodriguez. So far, the source said, the Nets are balking, but the Blazers are counting on the fact that the several Carter suitors -- including San Antonio, Dallas and Houston -- just don't have the comparable assets to make a deal.

he Boston Celtics reached out to the Charlotte Bobcats about trading for proven playoff performer Raja Bell, a league source said. So far, the Celtics don't have anything in return that appeals to Charlotte

The Bulls might not be done dealing before today's 2 p.m. deadline. Guard Larry Hughes -- whom the Bulls have been trying to trade for a month -- didn't make the trip to Milwaukee, and rumors circulating Wednesday night had them talking to the New York Knicks about a deal, with the principles being Bulls guard Kirk Hinrich and Knicks power forward David Lee.

The latest Internet speculation ties the Bobcats to the Portland Trail Blazers, in a scenario that would swap Gerald Wallace and Sean May for Nicolas Batum and Raef LaFrentz's expiring contract. However, a source familiar with the situation says the Blazers aren't receptive to dealing Batum and the Bobcats wouldn't give up Wallace primarily to reduce future payroll.
