Ray Allen for Kevin Martin rumours...

"Kings officials might be talked out of their reluctance to deal Martin if they could pry a prolific big man out of a third team brought into the discussions or in a separate transaction before the deadline."

Evans is the latest to grow tired of Nocioni's style. Pretty chippy between the two.

Sam Amick. Could somebody translate this for me please? Both literally - what should 'chippy' exactly mean - and in terms what might be going on there?

Rookie stats rankings for the preseason

I took a look at the statistics of rookies in the preseason and found some interesting (enjoyable) news out there:

Sergio Rodriguez not in the nomination for EuroBasket 2009

+

It is a bit shame as Spain will be in the same group as Slovenia so he could play a game against Beno face-to-face (if Beno will play at the championship). It is also interesting, however, as Calderon is injured and Sergio still does not get a place behind Rubio, Lopez and Cabezas. Israel got Greece, Croatia and Macedonia so Omri Casspi has a fairly good chance to advance to another round with the Israeli national team.

One-sided defence of Rubio with some hopefully-rational conclusions

I think that the discussion about Rubio has really reached the point where it is beyond the boundaries of basketball rationalities (ok, consdiering the current situation of the Kings - probably no...

Basically, his argument is about huge disproportion between his income and the sum that Badalona requires. Via Hoopshype.

Successful structure of an NBA roster and the Kings

Question of adding an instant star to Sacramento's roster on the example of Chris Bosh

The analysis of Raptors-Bulls game on RaptorsHQ brings some very good discussion on the future of Chris Bosh. His name has been involved here at StR in several discussions about potential future...

Lots, lots and lots of discontent from Nocioni

90

Dissatisfied with his health and dissatisfied with his performance this year overall... But, mostly dissatisfied with Sacramento. With individualism and the lack of team-chemistry, with results and with the near future hopes of the very young and individualistic team. Still, decided to work as hard as he can and to do what he can for the team, but if there was a chance he would be hapy to join a contender. The highlight? 'Sacramento is more interested in saving money than in the development of the team.' Quite disturbing reading. (A rough summary, I think, if someone with language abilities might check it...)

Now there are rumors that 18-year-old Spanish point guard Ricky Rubio, the top European prospect should he choose to enter the NBA draft, could be moved for cash to a wealthier European club because current employer DKV Joventut of Spain is in trouble financially. Two insiders have shot down the rumors, suggesting that Rubio will remain with Joventut for the rest of the year. For NBA fans, here is the real question: Does the recession in European basketball increase the chances that Rubio will enter the draft to cash in on a multiyear NBA rookie contract assuring him $3 million next season?

'Udrih, Natt clear the air'

"I thought (the conversation) was very productive," Natt said. "I've been very rough on him. I told him maybe I've been a little spoiled having John Stockton for so many years. I want too much of him. But at the same time, he knows where I am coming from and all means well. We are on the same page." (sacbee.com)
