    Stop watching youtube highlights and watch actual games. You are either cross eyed or certifiably insane, Canaan and Bledsoe are nothing alike - physically or in their play.

    Bledsoe is nicknamed Mini-Lebron for crying out loud.

    His health scares the crap out of me but it's time to take a gamble when this caliber of talent is available. There is no reason to believe he can't put up 19/5/5 efficiently next to Harden. He can flat out take over a game which is something we absolutely need in the playoffs when the refs swallow their whistles when Harden has the ball.

    Do it, Morey, do it.

    It's not that easy. A 3rd team may need to get involved, even then there is no certainty about it.

    I would personally go a step further than Morey on the contract. 2 year Max + partially guaranteed 3rd year. Suppose it's guaranteed for $5mil, then this essentially becomes a 2yr/$35mil contract or 3yr$45mil contract. Which gives Bledsoe lots of guaranteed money upfront but ensures that the contract becomes dumpable if his injury issues persist.

    I would personally prefer that over Phoenix's offer if I were Bledsoe.

    Hey bro anything new developing? Anything changed since Bledsoe news got out? You been saying since start that we are likely to get Dragic, but now that PHX is looking to trade him is Dragic off table? If so are we still trying to get Bledsoe? Or Morey is past him like cyberx mentioned?

    Bledsoe is willing to take the two year deal at max dollars?

    I truly believe the "neutering" part was primarily McHale's doing.:(

    Has this been posted? Whos this guy?


    http://m.foxsports910.com/media/pod...eFreaksInterviews/822-jeric-griffin-25201638/

    Cliffs notes : Jeric Griffin of Rant Sports reports there's a potential sign and trade with Houston, with Papa as centerpiece of Houston offer. "Houston has jumped back into this this morning."

    Sounds like he is saying Phoenix calling Minny for Love today has held up Rox deal. Mentions Rox and Cleveland as options for Bledsoe.

    This is so awesome. Makes sense with the time with Garcia signing since Papa is the centerpiece

    Papa is the 'centrepiece' to match salary (if it happens). We simply need a larger contract - hence Papa gets paid too much to become an expiring with a non-guaranteed 2nd year. Gold in terms of being tradeable.

    Anyone who mentions Papa as a trade piece has to be at least somewhat legit. No one who make up stuff would mention Papa of all players. He also makes more sense from Phoenix's standpoint than Jones. Jones is a little redundant with the Morrises there.

    I'm betting TJ (or D-Mo) is still involved.
