    This just in the news room.......


    According to reports, Houston Rockets power foward Torraye Braggs has just signed with the Ulsan Mobis Pheobus in South Korea.


    I really liked his work ethic on the court an I fondly remeber him hitting shots whenb he got the ball. I also know that there are some politics involved in the NBA ( you have to have a good agent politics).

    A moment of silence for Mr. Braggs.....................................OKAy thats enough.

    Looks like we might have a roster spot open?

    Maybe for a Spree....well maybe that's not a good idea for a team with eight guards.

    Braggs was not taking up one of our open roster spots.

    braggs isn't good...who cares????

    and i don't want spree, even if we work a trade that gets rid of dead weight. if he isn't going to play hard because he feels $14 mil. per season isn't enough what do you think he'll do with the league's vet min.???? probably choke JVG.

    Well the Spree thing was a frickin joke, BUT I will say that I don't think we have to worry about a guy that wants to play for big bucks. He's currently in talks with the LA Fakers, but they wont bite the bait.

    We already had 16 players under contract with the signing of Baxter. There is no way that we'll give Braggs a roster spot, so this pretty much expected.

    I'm not too devastated. I liked the guy, but then I liked Francis, before I eventually didn't.

    Bragg's talent level is not high enough to warrant a spot on a contender.

    I suppose you believe that Ryan Bowen, Mocchie Norris, and Vin Baker have far superior basketball skills the likes that can put Mr. Braggs to shame.

    Baker has an expiring contract,Mooch is trade filler,and Bowen has a role already.

    Well, this makes sense. I had wondered why we signed Baxter if Braggs was still on our roster. They'd be competing for the same minutes in garbage time.
