    Interesting post, as usual, Lee. I love the Benny Anders reference. For others wanting to count on a lottery pick, very few have put their teams over the hump earlier than about 3 years in the league.

    League sources polled this week said Philadelphia and New York are the most active. The 76ers are shopping the likes of small forward Andre Iguodala (four seasons and combined $56.5 million beyond this season) and center Samuel Dalembert ($12.9 million next season), with the Kings having shown some interest in Dalembert.

    First come the facts. According to several league sources, the Cavs and Sixers have been in talks about Iguodala. The talks remain open and it is still possible the Cavs could trade for him, contrary to other reports at the end of the last week. At this point, however, the two sides are just in discussion and have not progressed to the serious stage.

    Iguodala and the Cavs? It is complex, to be sure. But it is also quite possible. http://www.cleveland.com/cavs/index.ssf/2010/01/cavaliers_havent_given_up_yet.html

    Wizards, 76ers, Bulls, Knicks, Kings.. All 5 teams with good players and no one attracts Morey? Wow maybe Morey is being a bit too greedy here. Yeah its good to have 2 superstars but the way guys are playing now add Yao and another scorer and everything should be ok.

    Its not talent thats hurting us. Its height. The ability to defend the basket. Adding Yao would probably help. Keep McGrady or trade him it doesn't matter. Out of the 5 teams that have been mentioned the Bulls and 76ers are best for the Rockets to trade with IMHO.

    Morey shouldn't be too greedy cause he is going to hold out for a specific player and then come to find out at the end of things he would probably be left with nothing. A distgrunted player in McGrady who wants to play to earn another contract but won't and can't get off the bench because of egos in the organization. His also.

    cavs insider wineandgold (VERY VERY respectable poster at realcavsfans.com) said that cavs gm is working overtime to try and make a deal happen with philly. he said dalembert might have to be included.

    btw wineandgold broke mo williams deal, days before anyone heard of it and was the first one to report shaq had been traded to cavs.

    let mcgrady's contract expire and use the $$$$ to keep all our essential contracts and use the rest of the 23 mil. to throw at Bosh or D. Wade in the offseason

    If you use Mcgradys contract to resign our core players then you don't have hardy any money to go after free agents so that wouldn't work.

    Don't get your hopes up. All of the FAs will end staying with their current teams. Houston needs to realize that and get what you can now for TMac and hope for the best.

    I could see this happening, then perhaps Z + filler and/or pick for Jamison.

    Williams
    Iguodala
    James
    Jamison
    Shaq

    Looks good on paper!

    As for Houston, I just get the sense that Morey isn't high on Iguodala and/or his salary. Add to the fact then that he would prob. also have to take on Dalembert. I'm not sure that intrigues him, money wise.

    Ehh, we'll find out soon enough. 3 weeks is it?

    So few are willing to grasp what Bima's laid out numerous times, but I'm really beginning to wonder what Morey will do at this point.

    We have the team option with Landry which is a no-brainer if he isn't traded. Hayes? Hopefully not a problem. Scola & Lowry are scary issues.

    Kyle's earned a big raise, but how big? Luis may be the most underpaid guy in the league but I don't know if Morey is inclined to pay him what other teams might.

    Everybody talks about Battier's intangibles, but Scola's overall game probably has more impact than anyone on our current roster.

    I just have a feeling he'll be going to a team that's close to winning it all, because he's just sort of the ultimate X-factor (sort of like Horry was, but Luis actually plays in the regular season).

    Morey's already said the best way to keep this team together is to trade TMac's contract straight up and add a "significant" piece.

    But if the Philly deal goes down, Les is looking at big-time luxury tax hell. We'd have to re-sign Scola. Maybe let Kyle go (that hurts me) and maybe Chuck too.

    We're all pretty sure More's going to do something, but we're not going to know how painful it might be until the offseason.

    This is why I feel that if we trade TMac for Iggy/Dalm then we're going to make more deals, maybe ship some pieces for Martin in SAC or Bosh, to make sure that we won't have resigning problems this off season.

This at least shows ya they are trying. I dont know if there are any picks or if there are..what they are.

    Philly would get Z, West, Hickson, DAnny Green and JRich
    Phoenix would get Iguodala, Dalembert and Kapono
    Cleveland would get Amare, Jason Smith, Ivey

    There was talk it could be Green instead of Kapono and also talk that Ivey isnt involved at all. Also was told if something like this occurred..we wouldnt keep Z...I assume that means a buyout or waive.Alot of moving parts..not sure what it does to our cap number. One of you all would be able to sort that out I assume.
