    No way he leaves $13M on the table to return the Europe. As much as he might be happier playing in the ACB, he won't make nearly that much over there.

    Turk is a Sac home town favorite so they might be down with that. Also the raptors need more toughness weather bosh stays or not and Dre would bring that.

    The trade would make sense for both sides so that means it wont happen lol!

    You sure about that? Rumor has it that, for example, Tiago Splitter may be getting more than the MLE. Noc is not a superstar in the NBA, but with his NBA experience and FIBA pedigree, you'd think a rich team like Real Madrid or Barcelona might pay him money comparable to what he makes now.

    Isn't the Euro in the toilet right now. I figure that's got to be a big consideration on whether he'll actually jump ship or not.

    Don't know why anyone would want Nocioni on their team, unless they're able to dump Arenas, Brand, or Turkoglu. Don't understand why the Kings do this, Turkoglu's contract is 5 years long and he's getting up there, plus don't they already have a potential starting swingman in Omri Casspi?

    Hedo can still play when motivated. He also was a kings draft pick and he has ties to sacs glory days.

    It would be a fan friendly move. Plus it would get them rid of Nocioni, I am sure they would love to get rid of his DUI getting self.

    Yes, We would. I am also tired of his "jack up threes whenever I get the ball" mentality.
