    Posturing team is posturing. Sounds like Orlando wants to squeeze more from the trade partners, who are not giving in to their demands.

    If the Rockets are to make the deal, I hope it is on their own terms. Otherwise, I'm fine with just going forward with the young guys and going after the next elite player that "shakes loose" (Kevin Love?).

    Chris Broussard....

    Any credibility this report might have possibly had goes straight out the window once that man is involved.

    They are bluffing!! The longer they wait, the less leverage they have.


    Stick it to them!!!

    Why does any team want a player who is going to bolt at the end of the season and cost them 3/4s of their extremities?

    Kill me now. I am too invested in this to walk away from it all, but I am going to go insane if this lasts too much longer.

    It has been layed out countless times before, but I guess I will say it again.

    The actual list of teams he can realistically "bolt" to is pretty short. Once you add in the difference in money that the team that trades for him can offer, the notion that he will FOR SURE walk is sort of weakened.

    You know DM isn't giving up anything he doesn't want to. They can hold out for more, but I don't think they're getting it out of him.
