    Well hopefully we aren't trading Asik for Anderson or Ilyasova, I'm kind of jaded on the idea of adding a pure stretch thee at this point now.

    Why not? He was the main piece in my opinion in our trade with PDX.

    Lin, Papa for Ilyasova if Atlanta matches on Teague.

    And we're talking about the Bucks here. Not the smartest franchise around.

    If they don't match, then a 3 way deal with Lin going to Atlanta, Ilyasova going to Houston, Papa and picks going to Milwaukee.

    I like Iyasova but he is no where near enough for Asik. I would be looking for a deal that would include Larry Sanders if I'm sending out Asik.

    Asik
    KPap
    and ?

    Ilyasova
    Larry Sanders

    BTW, nice find CH

    I wanted the Rockets to bring him over this season instead of signing Williams or Casspi. Maybe there are contractual issues and he wouldn't take the minimum that those guys took. I think he can be a quality NBA player.

    I'd rather have him play for Houston than trade him for a bag of peanuts. This kid is better than Casspi and Reggie Williams.

    What I want to know is that, if a news paper or website spreads false negative rumors about Kostas, do we call it a "Pap Smear"?

    He is a rookie, so his minimum starts at $490k. Given the buyout situation and his likely salary in Europe, it would likely cost him $ to accept such a deal to come over.
