    umm okay?

    CHICAGO- Howard Eisley & 2 2nd Round Picks
    DENVER- JR Smith

    Looks like Paxson is making this move to clear salary to sign Griffin.... Chicago was already loaded with guards and with JR work ethic there is no way Skiles or Paxson wanted him around...

    they got cap relief with the 2nd round picks since they are not guaranteed contracts....not a bad move when you look at the whole picture

    more cap room? I didnt know 1mil was a lot of burden. also they only have Duhon, Hinrich and Gordon signed on for next season. That's all the guards they have. And all under 6'3. Work ethic? This is coming from an organization who has Mike Sweetney and had Eddy Curry.. so I'm sure they could find a way to coach him into good work ethic. Thats Skiles job.

    Cap wise unlike us Knicks they are trying to stay under the luxury cap...so by clearing almost 2 million they were able to sign Adrian Griffin and stay under the cap.

    As for work ethic...they traded Curry and this is Sweets last year in chicago unless he improves his conditioning....Tim Thomas had a bad work ethic and they had him sit out the season...so I didnt expect JR Smith to last in chicago either. Byron Scott had alot of problems with him and was very open about his lack of d and his bad work ethic.

    PHEONIX- signs Marcus Banks to a 5 year deal

    That's all true, I'm just saying if you are a good coach you can work a player not just kick him to the curb in a matter of days because of first impression or what you heard.

    And no they arent avoiding luxury tax (theyd be avoiding that to begin with). They are at 46 million with JR Smith.. the cap is set at 53. They are 7 under with him. And JR makes only 1 million this year.. they signed Adrian for more. sooo to me it was stupid move.. that and I hate Paxson/Skiles the bulls in general

    SAN ANTONIO- signs Jackie Butler to a 3 year 7 million dollar deal.

    Funny that the two last C's we've lost/gave up have both been the starting centers for the San Antonio Spurs.

    This has been a very active offseason in the NBA... Colangelo has injected tons of talent to the Raps roster.

    It's funny how the Knicks have stayed idle during this upheaval... I'm starting to think we'll start the season with what we have.

    TORONTO- signs Jorge Garbajosa and will sign Fred Jones soon. John Salmons has backed out of his trade to them.

    SAN ANTONIO- signs Francisco Elson

    on a side note.. i was looking at the knicks roster page today. and it lists Channing Frye as simply a Center and Curry as a Center/Forward.. interesting.. a sign of things to come?

    SACRAMENTO- signs John Salmons.. and lets Bonzi Wells walk..

    should be interesting. If Indy still goes for that Foster/jasikivicus trade for Bonzi.. Indy will be a force in the east

    Strange, Frye's player profile lists him as a forward..

    assuming the deaven george signing is a sign that dallas doesnt expect to resign KVH, do you think ny has any chances in offering a small deal or KVH accepting a long term deal from another team?

    I can't imagine KVH giving Steph a third try... 2bad, 'cause he was playing nicely before IT jettisoned him for Tiny Tim.

    TORONTO- waives Alvin Williams who has roughly 14 mill left on his 2 year contract.

    in other news.. memphis has yet to speak to Stromile Swift.. and they are looking for another Point guard.. hmm.

    but in response to the KVH thing.. no. He will sign with Denver when its all said and done.
