    Heard it just right now.
    3 way trade between Houston, Philly and Denver
    Not sure about specifics and are just rumors according to NBA TV

    We send Kenny Thomas and 2nd round pick and we get James Posey. Anybody else heard about this?

    Just on ESPN. Not sure how I feel about this, I must ruminate on it.

    Rockets send Thomas to Philly.

    Philly sends some crap to the Nuggets with expiring contracts(one assumes).

    Nuggets send James Posey to the Rockets.

    You would think Posey would start right away.

    Well good luck to KT in Philly. I loved his work ethic and hustle. If only some other players on this team worked as hard on their body as KT did. I like the trade though.

    As I was saying in the game thread:

    Posey...Posey...Posey...Posey

    Sorry to see Kenny go but it frees up the crunch at the PF spot and we get the poor man's Ron Artest for cheap!

    Damn...why won't this deal go down already!!! It'd be weird for them to do it right before the game. I've seen it done in baseball but in basketball, it's not that common.

    well, just some questions..
    will he start right away???
    is he defensive minded?
    and does he pass or is he selfish?
