NBA.com Player Tracking Data Renews My Interest in Ekpe Udoh

1
32zthjc

I delved a bit into the analytics available on NBA.com and was surprised to see that Udoh was top 15 in Opp FGP at the Rim (Filtered by BLK>1.0). While a trade for a defensive minded stretch 4 is ideal, Udoh could be a great stop gap for the nest 1-2 years.

Finally, Cousins on his three attempts from three-point range: "Coach wanted me to extend my range. So if y'all complaining I don't care because that's what coach wants."

The Los Angeles Lakers are finalizing a blockbuster four-team trade to acquire Dwight Howard from the Orlando Magic, league sources told Yahoo! Sports. The Lakers will send All-Star center Andrew Bynum to the Philadelphia 76ers, who also will receive shooting guard Jason Richardson from the Orlando Magic. The Sixers will send guard Andre Iguodala to the Denver Nuggets. The Magic will receive Arron Afflalo, Al Harrington, Nikola Vucevic, rookie swingman Moe Harkless and three first-round draft picks.

Adrian Wojnarowski I already hated the ****** but they just made it even easier. Here's to hoping Kobe can't coexist with everyone and their chemistry sucks.

How badly does Tim Duncan just want to eat red meat and play "Call of Duty" all day? The Spurs’ franchise player since draft day 1997, Duncan’s contract famously expires July 1. Whether he decides, at age 36, to sign another one will largely hinge on the answer to the question above. If Duncan does decide he’d still like to play "until the wheels fall off," expect the Spurs to come to a workable agreement with him. Duncan’s not playing anywhere else.

San Antonio Express-News I want this to be Sacramento and Cousins in 16 years with 3-4 Championships under his belt.

Baron Davis Amnestied

Even with the suspect back injury I would much rather take a chance on Davis than JC.

Gasol, Chandler, and Nene gone. I think other FAs will sign now that the big three are over and done with. Namely AK47 in a Kings uni.

Fla State's Chris Singleton, known as a top defender, impressing teams with offense in draft workouts. Decent shooter, some low-post moves

From Scott Howard-Cooper's twitter I really hope GP brings this guy in. A head to head with Leonard would be my dream scenario. I don't think Knight or Walker will still be on the board come #7.

Comparing Darko and DMC

18

After the manna meter disappeared I made a mental note to check back in at the end of the year and see how the two stacked up. DMC destroys Darko in just about every category or metric. Darko shoots a better percentage from the floor, but shoots way less, he also blocks more shots. And we all know DMC has a turn over and foul per game problem (very normal for a rookie), but Darko, in his 8th season, still turns the ball over at a higher rate than DMC. The big stats during the summer of manna was assists and assist rates. It ended up being closer than we initially expected but DMC wins this one too. Click the link for the full comparison

# Oops, Landry for Thornton and cash. NOt sure what IND would have offered, probably not Collison or Granger. Who knows, really... # Indiana Pacers made a late push to get Carl Landry, but Kings stuck with deal to send him N.O. for Landry and cash.

This just in from Jason Jones What would Ind have other than Collison and Granger that Sac would want? P. George?

I really wanted to see how he meshed with the team this preseason. Guess we have to wait a little longer.

The Sacramento Kings took another hit in their bid to build a new arena when Cal Expo officials on Friday rejected a proposal to move the State Fair to the site of Arco Arena. A new complex, including the new arena would have been built on the Fair site.

Sources say the Kings are also still open to trade possibilities, and Detroit and Utah are two teams eager to move up in the draft. The Pistons’ Tayshaun Prince(notes) could be intriguing to the Kings, who are eager to add a veteran small forward to the roster.

http://ca.sports.yahoo.com/nba/news;_ylt=Ahg.LxBoOCo2Oq27WYsan.PqbwM6?slug=ys-favorscousins061310 I hate this kind of BS. Have they looked at the roster? Oh, and Favors and DMC are supposed to go 1 v 1 in New Jersey, but who cares about that right?

Arena Infrastructure

I don't recall anyone discussing this at StR, so apologies if this is redundant. Seems all interested parties necessary for the Arena to be built downtown are already in motion, from the government side at least.

"Maybe I didn't make the point right," Maloof said. "We do need a new arena. Nothing has changed. "The point I was making is we need to refocus and get the season ticket holders back. We have to bring more wins to the city. That's more important than the new arena right now. After that, you have to look at your suites and club seats. You can't depend on the luxury suites."
