    Lets be real, the trade is going to be using our first to dump Nene to get under the luxury tax.

    “Damn it Daryl, we don’t need to spend restaurant money on no shiny new expensive players at the deadline. You need to shed salary not add it. Aren’t we still paying that Matt Maloney? Get his ass to spell Tucker at the 4. If he is too old have his shuck oysters.... now leave me alone, I’m playing JINGA.”

    In reality do we have any shot at any of those guys via trade ? I’m thinking no especially since ol’ Fertitta will want to stay under the luxury tax.

    If I were Morey I'd call about Zion because he'd fit here pretty well.
