missed a few trades

It appears I missed a few key trades and made some bad judgement calls. I apologize, but not for the Knicks, they made a bad trade. They give up way too many draft picks. They will soon find that out, and it will hurt them. New Lineups:
Mavs Grade B-
C Haywood
PF Dirk
SF Marion
SG Butler
PG Kidd

Wiz. Grade C-
C Ilgauskas
PF Blatche(don't know who else to put here)
SF Thornton
SG Howard
PG Foye

Cavs Grade A
C Shaq
PF Jamison
SF Lebron
SG Parker
PG Williams

KIngs Grade B+ (should have fixed PG huge hole, but love Landry)
C Thompson
PF Landry
SF Casspi
SG Evans
PG Udrih

Rockets Grade B+ (should not have given Landry but love Martin)
C Anderson (next year Yao)
PF Scola
SF Ariza
SG Martin
PG Brooks

Knicks Grade C-(need to fix center hole, and stop giving up draft picks)
C Lee
PF Harrington
SF Gallo
SGT-Mac
PG Duhon

Bucks Grade A(although probably could have done better then Salmons)
C Bogut
PF K. Thomas
SF Illyasova
SG Salmons
PG Jennings

Bulls Grade A
C Noah
PF Warrick
SF Deng
SG Heinrich
PG Rose

Jazz Grade B- (makes sense b-ball wise, but its sad to such a nice player go. The lineup should be interesting come Friday against the warriors. Here is what I think:)
C Okur
PF Booz
SF Kirilenko
SG Matthews*(could change)
PG Williams

Grizz Grade B+(Brewer is nice but should have filled PG hole or C hole)
C Gasol
PF Randolph
SF Gay
SG Mayo*(could use Brewer)
PG Conley*(could use Mayo)

Bobcats Grade A (Thomas should flourish is Charlotte)
C Chandler
PF Thomas
SF Wallace
SG Jackson
PG Felton

Ok now debate. I feel much better now, that other post was unwise of me, must not have realized the actual trades and I missed a big one with Thomas. Any disagreements on the grades and or lineups.

Mavs Grade B- C Haywood PF

Mavs Grade B-
C Haywood
PF Dirk
SF Marion
SG Butler
PG Kidd

Wiz. Grade B- (They have a young front court and cap space and still have Arenas who can get you something or maybe you make amends with him because he is resting his knee while suspended could come back close to normal after next year)
C McGee
PF Blatche(don't know who else to put here)
SF Thornton
SG Howard
PG Foye

Cavs Grade A
C Shaq
PF Jamison
SF Lebron
SG Parker
PG Williams

KIngs Grade B+ (should have fixed PG huge hole, but love Landry)
C Thompson
PF Landry
SF Casspi
SG Evans
PG Udrih

Rockets Grade A+(They did not lose any key players and added a starting shooting guard Martin and Ariza next year with Yao will be crazy mad 3's all day)
C Anderson (next year Yao)
PF Scola
SF Ariza
SG Martin
PG Brooks

Knicks Grade C- and if they get some good free agents this could be A-
C Lee
PF Harrington
SF Gallo
SGT-Mac
PG Duhon

Bucks Grade A(Salmon may actually play like he did last year in Chi town and his point guard abilities will take pressure off of Jennings)
C Bogut
PF K. Thomas
SF Illyasova
SG Salmons
PG Jennings

Bulls Grade A(They actually picked up player who could replace the ones they left go and save money)
C Noah
PF Warrick
SF Deng
SG Hinrich
PG Rose

Jazz Grade B-(Jazz will probably use their top 10 possibly pick and get a shooting guard so this deal was not bad especially with the play of Mathews and CJ Miles)
C Okur
PF Booz
SF Kirilenko
SG Matthews*(could change)
PG Williams

Grizz Grade B+(Brewer helps out bench and gives them someone they can depend on and can defend, also Gay can not really hold Grizz hostage now because Brewer is no Gay but he can fit and take the pressure off if Gay leaves and I am sure that next year draft pick and Mayo , Gasol, and Randolph would not mind extra touches)
C Gasol
PF Randolph
SF Gay
SG Mayo*(could use Brewer)
PG Conley*(could use Mayo)

Bobcats Grade A (Thomas should flourish is Charlotte and also i hear they got Ratliff which should help them out as well)
C Chandler
PF Thomas
SF Wallace
SG Jackson
PG Felton

clippers

Sorry
Blazers Grade A(great Center pick up)
C Camby
PF Aldridge
SF Webster*(could be Batum)
SG Roy
PG Miller

Clippers C (need to fix hole at SF, and gooden is not that great of a replacement for the injured Blake Griffen)
C Kaman
PF Gooden
SF Outlaw
SG Gordon
PG Davis
Blake comes off the bench for Davis

spencer hawes is the

spencer hawes is the starting center for the kings....this trade really helps out specer hawes and lets him work more in the high post were he is much more effective and also helps his and JT's finesse style of play and allows him to take defenders face up

clippers should get an A-.

clippers should get an A-. they achieved their goal of getting the cap room for a max contract offer. they don't care who they get for those guys (telfair, thornton) as long as its an expiring contract.

Landry

I'm still trying to figure out all these posts talking about how Houston should not have traded Landry. Houston just got to not only switch first rounders, but take another first rounder from a team that may or may not be any good in a few years, while also snatching up the best player in the trade and a recent first rounder that will probably get some playing time at some point for them. You have to give up something to get something. This isn't the trade machine where you just match up the salaries. They gave up their 6th man for a guy that is going to be starting for them for the next 4 or 5 years. So that probably means Ariza is now your 6th man. They have did pretty well without a guy like Yao and without McGrady this year. I think they will be ok.

Morey got a lot for expendable guys and a guy like McGrady who was probably going to get a buyout if they didn't trade him. New York probably could have gotten him for a veterans minimum deal. I mean according to the rumors the Rockets got more from McGrady than the Suns were going to get from an established All Star like Amare. New York has to get at least one of the top guys in free agency or that franchise is going to really be sunk in the ground, especially if they get desperate and overpay for guys that aren't going to be superstars.
