    Default next week donnie'll start dealing.

    at least i hope so.that's when lee and nate will be able to get traded.and you know how donnie likes to do a couple of deals at the same time.this team will not be the same by the end of the month.lee, nate, and harrington are the likeliest goners imo.

    i hope dudu gets flushed too.

    They do have veto power. They would have to give consent for a trade.

    Nate probably wants a trade now that he's being benched.

    Lee might accept a trade if it was to a winning team. He's probably sick of losing in NY, sick of playing Center and probably knows he doesn't fit with this team. He's most likely gone next year.


    *Edit* I wonder how we can trade any of our players. Donnie is adamant about maximizing cap space in 2010. He's only willing to take back expiring contracts. That's it.

    lee wants to get paid.most likely he'll get dealt to a team that is pf deficient, and he'll pad his stats.nate would ok a trade to a siberian team.he just wants to play.

    Yeah. And I'm afraid we'll give him a max-contract just to sign somebody. He's not worth the max.

    But we have to ask, why would he leave Atlanta for a roster consisting of Curry, Jeffries, Chandler, Gallo, Douglas and Hill?

    Bosh is the most likely of the bunch to leave their current team. He's defintitely not worth a max-contract either. But Miami will have almost as much cap space as us. You would think Bosh would rather play with Wade than our pathetic roster.

    the only reasons he would come to ny is

    1.) for the city
    2.) play with mike d again
    3.) he believes gallo will be a star

    even though 1 nd 3 are great reason, if he really wants to win he stays in atlanta. johnson+josh smith=disgustingly dangerous

    I know Donnie wants cap space, but there are certain contracts that we shouldn't mind taking. Like if we could somehow get Rudy Fernandez, for example, we shouldn't hesitate to pull the trigger on that move.
