    hmmm....strange timing of that leak.

    Bucks are in town TONIGHT!. They can meet Lawson in person.

    Maybe Morey is playing games with them via the leak.

    Bucks: So, let's chat about Lawson tonight Daryl. Dinner after the game?

    Morey: "Nah, We showcased him last game for you. We decided to stand pat. See you at the arena, though. Besides, I'm celebrating with Harden, Howard and Josh after the game tonight at Limelight."

    Lawson is starting to play better. And there's nobody we could get that would suddenly be a huge upgrade.

    F**k it, let it ride.

    right on. The odds of him turning into "the old Ty Lawson" are far greater than the odds of us trading for someone who can turn this season around. Maybe he and Smoove can create some chemistry.

    even if this is just posturing to drive up the price, i like it.

    Josh Smith was the big boom trade now it makes sense to keep Lawson this was the plan all along... Dwight, Smith, Ariza, Harden and Lawson nobody has faced that lineup yet nor have we seen it. So stfu and wait...

    I'll believe it when the deadline passes.

    "Intend" to keep him until the right offer comes.

    Good! Give him some confidence to take the ball away from James for periods in the game.

    Only benefits for the team

    Of course it's because the trade offer isn't good enough. Lawson is definitely able to be had. I do wonder if they are worried about the pg position being depleted again though.

    The talent is there to be a very solid offensive and defensive lineup but let's just hope they can all get their minds right and rejuvenated to finish strong. Could be huge if they can play together. With the talent these 5 guys possess, their ceiling is through the roof.

    Morey made the big splash everyone hoped he would and it has turned out to be a flop. Worst thing he can do is ride it out, but I'm guessing his pride won't let him admit a mistake.

    Yeah that's a concern now. It would suck if we roll into the playoffs with a hobbling Bev and no Dmo
