    Wow, neither my NBA app nor ESPN app gave me a notice about this.

    I mean, this trade puts Boston back in the hunt....

    (wait for it; wait for it...)

    ....for mediocrity.

    Ah, the dog days of summer.

    As soon as they get Goran to commit they trade his scrub brother.

    Boston now has 17 contracts...not including Babb.....that are either guaranteed or will be guaranteed (rookie deals for Rozier/Hunter).

    Obviously Boston has to drop or trade a couple guaranteed contracts.

    Seriously has there been a brother-hanger on who has milked the fraternal ties as much as Zoran in recent history?

    I mean Goran had a couple of good seasons but... is he really worth 2 roster spots?

    I was impressed with Zoran in summer league. mini-me Goran so I guess he was a luxury tax victim just like Napier was.

    He wasn't that's why Zoran was shipped out as soon as possible. But yeah at least Robin Lopez, Marcus Morris, Mark Gasol:p can play.

    I'm surprised Steph Curry and Blake Griffin haven't gotten their brothers guaranteed spots, If Goran can do it no reason these guys can't.

    That clever b*stard Riley! With the money Goran got in his extension, he can invest in Skype or plane tickets when he's longing to see his brother.

    There was never a question, Zoran is not NBA talent, he wasn't even a top player in Europe. Not even close. I am surprised he thought he could make it in the NBA.

    Just wondering how much are Miami paying in tax? Is there really a need for them to go ham on penny pinching?

    For all the crap Alexander gets for not spending money like Cuban at least I've never seen Houston penny pinch like this lol, maybe going ape **** over getting justise Winslow and then seeing his extremely underwhelming play in SL broke Riley's mind.

    Somehow, Zoran was paid more than the minimum.
