    I have a feeling they're gonna score a LOT of points next year and give up a LOT.

    DeRozan/Barbosa
    Barnes/Weems
    Davis/Klieza
    Bargnani/Johnson

    Wow, Orlando needs a defensive SF and Houston needs Black Manta.

    Dinner at Amura, Rick?

    I really like Matt Barnes and wouldn't mind him on the Rockets.

    He got a great contract from Toronto...too bad they don't have a ton to work with.

    lol. The fans "excepted" his family and he's thanking them... :grin: I'm sure they'll be excepting him for sure now.

    Good god. Cleveland can't land ANYBODY. Even Barnes, who they've been after until now, evidently.

    Yeah, no one wants to play for Dan Gilbert. I think he will be blackballed by all free agents from now on.

    wow, nice signing by T-Dot, gives them toughness. However why did Barnes want to play in Toronto?

    Probably money. There is no other reason to play for a team with a losing culture.

    this is true, in 7 years in the NBA he has only made 7.5 million bucks. This is a smart move on his part imo.

    No kidding. Colangelo went from highly respected executive to punch line in just a few years there.
