Cavs trading for 2nd pick in the Draft??

1

Anyone else see this? Apparently the Cavs are trying to trade up and get the first and second picks in the draft. It would involve a 3-way trade, which seems to favor only Cleveland. The Pistons would get rid of Hamilton, which makes sense. But also would give up the 8th pick, which I can't understand why they would do that. Dump Hamilton's salary.... yes. Dump an 8th pick..... can't understand the logic on that. This rumor sounds like it's coming out of Cleveland because it favors Cleveland the most.

D-Will out for year??

+

I hate to see Deron Williams sit out the season, but when we own the Nets pick this year I am ok with it. This is good news for the Jazz. Any chance the Nets finish the season lower than 6th now?

Boozer's Divorcing

+

I wonder if him breaking his hand has any thing to do with this? Sorry to go there but, he breaks his hand and then a couple days later they are divorcing.

John Amaechi in the '12 Olympics!!??

+

Just when you thought you were done hearing the name John Amaechi, turns out you aren't. Turns out he will have a part in the opening ceremony of the Olympics in London. He will shoot the first hoop in the basketball arena. My favorite part of the article is how the call him an "NBA star". Maybe they never watched tape on this guy, but I am not so sure he is going to make that shot.

Morris Almond Signs Overseas

+

He signed with the Italian club Scavolini Pesaro. I don't know anything about that team, but wish Almond the best of luck. I thought he would make it in the NBA.

Roster Lineup? Am I missing any contracted people?

2
  1. Deron Williams, Price, Gaines
  2. Raja Bell, Hayward
  3. CJ, AK, Jeffers
  4. Millsap, Evans
  5. Jefferson, Memo

Thanks

+

To the Jazz front office, thanks. Man we went from dead to alright in just a matter of a few days. You have gained my trust again.

Harrington to Nuggets

+

Al Harrington to the Nugs. People hoping he would land on the Jazz can give it a rest. My opinion is, I am glad the Jazz didn't get him. I would have been ok with it, but overall I am glad. He doesn't have a high basketball IQ and does a lot of bone-headed stuff.

Gortat?

2

Other players under contract for sale to teams with $$$: Gilbert Arenas, Baron Davis, Jose Calderon, Elton Brand, Marcin Gortat According to Chad Ford, Gortat is available to a team with $$$. With Chicago having just offered JJ Redick 3 yr / $19-20 mill, NOW seems like a good time to use a trade exception on Gortat. Seems to me that Orlando would be looking for ways to shave $$ to try and keep Redick. Come on KOC, get on it!! At least let me read a headline that reads the Jazz tried for someone and got shot down. Right now, I haven't even heard a thing!

Johnson worth a max contract?

2

Wow, let the most overpaid offseason begin. 6 years $119 mill! Is he worth that? I don't think so, but that's just me. I think the only guys worth max money are Lebron and Wade.

Darko?

+

Why would Minnesota jump on the Milicic train? They could have waited 'til the end of October to sign this guy and could have got him for 4 years at $1 mill. Wow!

Boozer to the Nets?

+

Apparently the Nets are thinking of pursuing Boozer in free agency. According to Stein the Nets would draft Wes Johnson and go for a PF in free agency will chase Boozer the hardest. Any way we can work a sign and trade?

Boozer?

Anyone heard the latest on Boozer and his strained calf? How many games if any he plans on missing? * side note, I also have a strained calf. Not fun but I could see him being out a week.

Help give Glen "Big Baby" Davis a NEW nickname

I have been literally laughing out loud at some of the suggestions. I know it's not Jazz related but it's funny none the less. Be careful, as you can already guess there will be some language. Some of my favorite ones Ham Hock Big Nipper Animal Style Snack Pack

BREAKING NEWS! JAZZ TRADE MAYNOR & HARPRING

4

The Jazz on Tuesday traded 2009 first-round draft pick Eric Maynor plus Matt Harpring's rights to Oklahoma City in exchange for the rights to Peter Fehse, a forward from Germany who was a second-round pick of the Sonics in 2002. With only 12 players on the roster, the Jazz will be forced to make an additional move to reach the league minimum of 13. Maynor was the 20th pick in this past June's NBA Draft. He has averaged 5.2 points and 3.1 assists in 26 games this season.

Kirk Snyder moved to a mental health facility

+

Sad how this guys life has unfolded. I remember watching him at Nevada thinking he was a stud. LEBANON, Ohio -- Southwest Ohio authorities said former NBA player Kirk Snyder has been transferred to a mental health facility after being ordered back to jail for allegedly removing an electronic monitor. Snyder pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity in April to felonious assault and aggravated burglary charges stemming from a home break-in. The 26-year-old was wearing the device while awaiting trial.

Sloan sighting
