    -Didnt see one created yet.

    -Dedicate this thread specifically for the massive amounts of updates coming today about signings and trade rumors floating around.

    -After the 98/99 lockout, 111 players were moved in the NBA in 48 hours, and that didnt include waived players, etc. and we all know the Rockets will be at the forefront of most of these trades.

    -Again, this thread is reserved for updates, not agruments about Euroleague Vs. the NBA.

    WojYahooNBA
    Free Agent forward Shelden Williams will sign a one-year deal with the New Jersey Nets, league sources tell Y!Sports.

    Wasn't he a top pick out of Duke? What a bust. (if I'm thinking of the right guy)

    Might be off a bit on that number, Im pretty sure it was close to 70 the first day, and 30 to 40 the second day moved teams. Needless to say, things will move fast today.

    Very likely, just like with the 2011 Melo drama, teams have built contengencies around what happens with CP3 and Howard. With teams starting camp this morning, the NBA MUST come to a decision soon.

    Brave decision. He has all that money coming to him. No point in playing on and not be able to use his knees after he's 30.

    with medical retirement, he still gets his money right?
    But the medical retirement, doe sit still count against cap?
    If I remember Yao, it does.
    So most likely have to amnesty him, eh?

    Jermaine Taylor is heading back to Houston. Sources close to the situation say he has agreed to a deal with the Rockets. No details yet.
