Niners looking to sign Cruz? THis has to be a AFD joke, right?

What say you people? This would definitely be a major coup if we could get it done...but it feels like a joke to me

Sure...like the fans told you to take yet another fadeaway 20 ft jumper instead of driving the ball to the basket, or get a tech arguing about coming into the game or a non call while Boston scores on the other end...ugh

13. Atlanta Hawks Six reasons we need a lockout ... $16,324,500 $18,038,573 $19,752,645 $21,466,718 $23,180,790 $24,894,863 That's what Atlanta owes Joe Johnson, by year, through 2016. You know, because any time you can totally overpay someone hitting his 30s who isn't one of the best 15 players in the league, you have to do it. To be fair, at least Johnson played the best basketball of his career once he locked that money do- ... oh, wait, that's not what happened at all. He had his worst season in six years. These things can't happen anymore. Once the owners blow up the system and pass the "no contracts can last longer than four years" rule, we will never see another contract like that one. Joe Johnson, you made history. Anyway, here's how the next three months will play out for Hawks fans ... APRIL: The Hawks get crushed by Orlando in Round 1, a sweep highlighted by Zaza Pachulia starting three "someone hold me back, could someone hold me back so I look tough, HOLD ME BACK!" altercations with Dwight Howard, as well as 7,300 Hawks fans showing up for Game 4 and Charles Barkley saying, "The Hawks were turrrrrr-able ... . They were turr-able. Number one, Joe Johnson, if you wanna be paid like a franchise player, you gotta play like one. Second of all, Atlanta needs to blow things up, Ernie. And number three, that's why we havin' a lockout, because Atlanta had to overpay their best player to keep him, and Ernie, he ain't that great." MAY: With Atlanta desperately needing to cut payroll ($65.7 million guaranteed to eight players next year), the Josh Smith trade rumors kick into 19th gear. NBA reporters are faced with a dilemma: should they tweet every single rumor they hear, or should they just pass along stuff that they know is true? Naturally, they choose to tweet every single rumor they hear. Josh Smith trends for the next six weeks straight, to the point that non-NBA fans wonder, "Who is Josh Smith? Is he trapped in a well or something?" EARLY-JUNE: Fresh off the success of "The Heat Index," ESPN.com launches "Just Joshing," an entire site devoted to totally unsubstantiated Josh Smith trade rumors that will never happen. Yahoo responds by announcing that, every day until Smith gets traded, Adrian Wojnarowski will write a scathing column blaming Atlanta's increasingly dire situation on Worldwide Wes and LeBron James. LATE-JUNE: The Hawks finally make their move: a three-teamer that sends Smith and Pachulia to the Clippers, Chris Kaman to Cleveland (absorbed by their trade exception for LeBron James), and Al-Farouq Aminu to Atlanta. The deal saves the Hawks a whopping $30 million over the next two seasons but locks them into 42-45 wins for the rest of eternity. And you wonder why we need a lockout.

Jerry Sloan....pipe dream, but...

...you think our skinflint owners would make a move if Sloan was receptive to coming to the A?

Zach Lowe....agree or disagree?

Frankly, I like his ideas. I still think you need to deal Josh and build around Horford playing the 4, but he makes valid points. So what say you?

Vote for Bamm Bamm!

9. Joe Johnson. The Hawks are expected to offer him the max, but Johnson could yet earn a six-year, $125 million elsewhere in a sign-and-trade with the Knicks or another team, which could send a second-round pick to Atlanta and leave the Hawks with a highly-valuable $16 million trade exception to be used over the next year. Every team with cap space covets Johnson in addition to teams like the Mavericks, who hope to acquire him in a more traditional sign-and-trade using the expiring contract of Erick Dampier.

If this does happen, who would we want from the Knicks?

2

Seriously, if Joe wants to go, who in NY is worth having in a sign and trade? I say you gotta start with David Lee , Toney Douglas or Wilson Chandler...and if we can dump Bibby's contract, take Chris Duhon (if he's still under contract)

Mark Jackson getting a looksee

I doubt we actually hire him, but it would be great to pick his brain and get his observations on Jeff Teague

Jahvid Best, anyone?

Interesting point there...we have offensive pieces in place, but we don't have that true homerun threat....I could see it happening, but it would be better if we could get Best in round 2

2. I think, if I had to guess right now, I'd say the best shot for Tim Tebow on draft day is San Francisco, at number 13. No proof. No solid evidence. Just this: The Niners gave a tepid endorsement to Alex Smith as their quarterback of 2010 after the season; and Mike Singletary didn't draft him; and Singletary is going to fall in love with Tebow once he meets him after the season; and Tebow is the kind of winner that Singletary has preached he wants since he took the job from Mike Nolan in mid-2008. After Singletary meets Tebow at the Scouting Combine, this is my prediction of his reaction: He'll turn to GM Scot McCloughan and say, "That's my guy. We've got to have him.''
