Instead of making a new thread every time a guy gets traded or new news surfaces, I'm just gonna post most of the stuff on this thread
Apparently Mike Bibby is a possibility for the Knicks.
I've also read on several different places that Dwight's Free Throw shot has a lot more arc and rotation.
Just so you know, I'm getting this from hoopshype, I'm not sure what to believe, but it's some interesting stuff.
man, I really thought Bibby would do a lot more with the Heat than he did. this was not just a case of him not fitting in the system, he wasnt shooting the ball very well......he has really lost a lot....I just dont see where he can truly help a team except for someone needing a moderate backup.
The Pistons today announced the signing of first-round pick Brandon Knight and second-round pick Vernon Macklin. The team also signed four free agents: center Jake Voskuhl, guard Kareem Rush, guard Walker Russell Jr. and forward Brian Hamilton.
From the Detroit Free Press
Kareem Rush is back? That means his music career is gonna be put on the back-burner :'-(
No more swishing jumpers on my door hoop after 30 seconds of magic......
Kings signed their rookie draft picks....Jimmer of course, but also Tyler Honeycutt and Isaiah Thomas. I like the look of the Kings this year. Also.....Thornton's contract is for 4 year/$33mil....not the previously reported 5 year/$40 mil
I keep hearing here in Chicago that the Bulls are going to try and get Rip, possibly at the veteran's minimum, since he was bought out today. I think this is a good veteran fit for Rose and company.
The Suns have been making some smart moves. Waived VC then resigned Grant Hill to a reasonable short term deal and signed Sebastien Telfair and Shannon Brown to be backups at PG and SG.
Honest question, who do you prefer man, Jamal Crawfor or rip Hamilton?
Fizer, they could realistically get both if Rip takes the veteran's minimum and Crawford realizes he isn't worth $11 million. But if I had to choose, I'd take Crawford by a slim margin.
This thread will be dead by tomorrow.
By the way, I prefer seeing a new thread when a trade or F/A signing is made. I don't want to have to read every post in this thread to figure out who was traded. I'd rather go to the main page and see the headline "Chandler to the Knicks" or "Battier on the Heat".

Bit disappointed the Cavaliers re-signed Parker; was hoping they'd give all the minutes to their young athletes in Eyenga, Harris and Gee so the tanking could continue for one more year.
This is the Dan Gilbert strategy...
Even so, it would have been nice to see Eyenga, Gee get some run all the same. Eyenga is athletic enough that he could still be a starting SG in the NBA if he develops properly.
Gilbert needs to tank hardcore though, because Irving and Thompson aren't going to cut it for the future.
Whether it's Gee, Parker, or Eyenga, they are going to lose, and lose badly. Hopefully they'll get another bad contract for a pick deal, and they'll be able to get a franchise type guy, but Irving and Thompson are good starts to franchise that desperatly needs somthing.
Baron Davis is headed to the big apple. I love the signing. Do the reasearch, Baron plays best when there are crowds there, he will excell with Melo and Amare. He'll get stats around 15 and 7, and Arenas might join him there. Gilbert Arenas, Baron Davis, and Mike Bibby? They're gonna party like it's 2007, lol. But really, it's 2012, not 2007, these are over the hill or almost over the hill PGs that may not be abl to gice you what you need, but still the Knicks need depth desperatly.
Plus Kenyon Martin's Chinese team is considering releasing him. the reason was sort of a BS reason, but the only thing stoping them is possible sanctions and forfeture imposed by league officials. Ah, I love Chinese rules and regulations.
If Martin does indeed comeback, Veteran teams would be interested in him, and most likely the Heat. I think these guys should honor their contracts the way they promised to do so.
Plus, Nick Young signs a 3.7 million dollar qualifying offer with the wiz. Looks like he waiting to cash in next year, lol.
