    He will likely be gone if we can get Howard.

    Linsanity, meet Motievation. I can't remember who originally said it.

    I highly doubt it. He would let Royce White go before him.

    Can't trade players just signed.

    He would probably give whatever it costs to be honest. This has been his goal for several years, I dont think he's going to let a couple unproven rookies stop him from dealing for Dwight.

    Donuts is an oversized SF. More precisely a point forward.

    i honestly think he will develop into a center in the nba. he's already an aggressive rebounder, he's very quick laterally to defend the PnR, and he's developing nice offensive game.

    ...looking forward to watching Donuts develop as a player. He has some good skill sets for a 7 footer. Put him on Moreys diet and hopefully he gets beefier in places other than his face. Coach him up McHale.

    NOPE! Would have been easier to trade his rights to Orlando if this were the case.

    Perhaps a Pau Gasol type center, where he is serviceable as a center but better used as a PF. This is obviously only my assumption based on what I have read of him.

    Can not be traded till December 15th because of signing. So, if DH is traded for before the season starts he will not be involved in the trade.

    With the off season we're having, this is good news. I'm very excited to see what D-Mo can do, and I really hope they don't trade the kid. Seven foot prospects with his skills don't grow on trees.
