    One we had last year was fantastic even prior to the LBJ rumors and all that. People posted some great info.

    Nuggets-
    UPDATE No. 3: Further indicating that Nene may stay in Denver, Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News has this: "Denver is not looking to sign-and-trade Nene and two NBA sources say that the Nuggets, who already have an abundance of small guards, are not interested in [Monta] Ellis."

    Pistons-
    Wallace told the Associated Press this recently: "I'm leaning more towards coming back. It's just a matter of getting myself healthy and getting ready to play."

    Warriors/Bulls-
    According to the San Jose Mercury News, Warriors guard Monta Ellis would like to stay with Golden State, but if he does get traded he prefers it's to a contending team like the Chicago Bulls.

    One trade that would a work is a swap of Ellis for Luol Deng, however the Bulls probably wouldn't do that.

    While talking to the media on Friday, new head coach Mark Jackson said he wants Ellis on the team.

    Warriors co-owner Joe Lacob says all the Ellis rumors lately are simply not true.

    "I can't believe where all this is coming from because the stories are completely fabricated, by you or whoever. I don't know who's fabricating them," he told the San Jose Mercury News. "They're fabrications, complete and utter. All these teams that supposedly have talked to us. It's not true. It's just not true.

    Lacob then added, "I'm not saying we haven't had any discussions, we have. But it's nothing like what's being reported. We all really like Monta Ellis a lot. We think he's a great player. The question will be, like with every other player on the team -- is there someone we think makes more sense, that could be better, make us a better team?"

    Magic-
    With Andre Iguodala on the trade block this week, there's another team that has reportedly thrown its hat in the ring: Orlando.

    From Steve Kyler of HOOPSWORLD: "Iguodala has been linked to the Orlando Magic in a deal built around Hedo Turkoglu and Jameer Nelson, although sources near the 76ers say that's the least attractive offer they have received."

    The Magic are looking to bring in pieces around Dwight Howard in an effort to get him to stick around. But if the Sixers are looking for an athletic big in return for Iguodala as ESPN's Marc Stein has tweeted, the Magic may need to offer up either Brandon Bass or Howard -- neither of which seems all too likely.

    Heard there is a lot of talk about the Bulls trying to get Jamal Crawford, but since there is no new CBA its a moot point.

    I can't see how the Bulls would get Monta Ellis without giving up Deng, which they won't

    Huh. He might be the biggest ballhog in the league, not sure how that works with Rose dominating the ball. But it'd be interesting.

    Bulls should sign Michael Redd and see if there is ANYTHING left in the tank but since there is no new CBA its a moot point.

    Absolutely, but not for the price it would take to get him from a championship-caliber team but since there is no new CBA its a moot point.

    The Bulls need another ball hog. The problem with their team is that they don't have a single player that can create offense except for Rose. Crawford can give you that at the 2 and can spell Derrick at point when needed.

    Someone is going to overpay big time for Jamal Crawford. I agree with Powe about Redd though.

    I think a team should sign Rodney Stuckey to a deal so retarded even Joe wouldn't match it.

    Oh wait, that kind of deal doesn't exist.

    Yeah the Bulls need a 2, but they'd almost have to do it via trade. See no way they have the money to drop on a legit free agent.

    Curious to see what the nuggets will do, lots of free agents. Hopefully we ship Felton's ass off to.

    lol

    When Stuckey wasn't telling Kuester to go fuck himself, he was probably the second best player on the team. If they dump Hamilton and/or Gordon, I'd be in favor of him coming back. If they don't, he really doesn't make much sense. I can't see his value being very high, though. Could see him just signing the tender for one year.

    He increased his value by quite a bit with his play at the end of the year. Seems like he is destined to be a team cancer though. If we cut bait with Rip and Tay (Tay is all but assured at this point) and get out of BG's contract, I could tolerate him coming back as a fucking 2 guard. Hate him running the point though. Tay leaving has nothing to do with his position of course; just need to get him away from the rest of the cancer.

    I wonder what moves Jackson will make this offseason. Im indifferent on keeping Ellis, wouldn't mind shipping him to make us better but would be fine with keeping him too.
