    my guess after reading Doc's tweet is that we are getting hawes as the stretch 4 and MKG as the 2 guard - especially after mentioning prey and the number 2 instead of the letter ("kidd-gilchrist" who was a number 2 pick) and URICH (maybe rich cho) or pray for A (Asik) as he is going to the bobcats lol just a guess though

    A few things:

    1. Morey is probably working on about 20 deals as he has stated before even one comes to fruition. Don't be surprised if a deal comes through that we have not heard about.

    2. Morey is positioning himself to get a return that looks after the short term (will allow us to fight for the championship this season) and also the long term (a pick or young talent that he can flip later for an allstar or close to all star)

    Maybe but he didn't really show it in Cleveland, amassing a confusing array of washed up players to complement LeBron.

    A 7 footer elite rim protector and probably the best positional interior defensive big man in the league is a great asset.No one defends the back to the basket bigs like he can. He shut down LMA in Portland and tookout Randolph in Memphis with ease.

    Howard.

    You haters need to keep up.

    Doc is keyed into the organization, doesn't mean things can't/don't change.

    Lie? Did you wach the Portland and the Memphis games. Anyone who watches the game beyond stats knows how good Asik is.

    When guys like Tad Brown openly reply and retweet you, you're an insider.

    Lin doesn't have a 15 mill cap hit, it's 8 mill and change. Yes, Lin is to be paid 15 mill next season, again, not his cap figure. When will you people learn to read and stop talking put of your back sides?

    Asik and Lin for Gasol?. No thanks. We make them better straight away granted though Gasol has a expiring contract.

    Kevin Love just scored 42 pts against the Spurs.

    Doc also did say 'so pray' alluding to something religious.

    Bombs away could refer to his superior 3pt shot ability.


    Rockets definitely need a stretch 4 and he'd be perfect but I just don't see how they get this done or why Minny would let him go.

    Asik has $20123938.00 due for this season & next. Millsap has $19000000.00 due.

    That's a difference of $1123938.00

    Is $1.1 million really that big of a deal in today's NBA? I think the "balloon" payment myth that guys like Matt Moore are running with is just that; a myth.

    The 8.3 cap hit I for us, trade him and hat team will be paying the whole 15 million as a cap hit. Take you're own advice.
