    Orlando got slammed for not accepting the nets deal with Lopez at the time,genius move now! All that salary on the bench, Nets can get a waiver on the cap though maybe like the Rockets did for Yao when he went out for the year.

    Dude what... Front office placed a HUGE bet, sacrificing a lot of their future, and now they're gonna pay for it for the next few years.

    Ouch.

    Sucks to suck.

    As much as I don't like KG, it would be refreshing for him to smart smacking around these pansies in the Rockets locker room.

    Ouch! And no lottery pick in a loaded draft.

    On the other hand, Atlanta is in an incredible position for their rebuild. They are going to snag the 3 seed this year, and will in all likelihood get either Wiggins, Parker, Randle, Smart or Embiid. Not bad!

    I would take KG off their hands for Asik. It would be a gamble on this season type of trade. However, tt would also keep us flexible for 2015.

    I take it those who are calling for KG haven't seen him play this year. He looks completely done. I think he's still shooting under 40%

    We don't need him for his offense, I want him for his Defensive presence and Locker Room presence.

    edit: He can coach up T Jones, D Mo G Smith, etc. Whoever is still here that's a big or plays PF, he can help them with all his years of excellent play and playoff/championship experience. He'd be a great asset for our young team!

    KG, PP, D-Will and JJ all have bloated contracts they can console themselves with.

    Morey should take a flier at KG. The problem is KG & Dwight despise each other with a passion so it won't happen.

    Maybe they can put that to the side in order to win a title?
