    Around the NBA: 2012-13 Edition

    We've done this thread a few times before and it's never really stuck, but maybe at this time of year it will. This is a place to talk about other moves going on in the NBA that don't directly affect the Sixers. I know there's the NBA forum for that, but it's good to have a place for the guys in here to talk to each-other about this stuff without getting dragged into the main forum homerism hell-hole.

    And the reason I thought to start one of these threads - because there was nowhere else to post this:

    Danny Ferry. Wow.
    1) Atlanta/BKN have reportedly agreed to shed JJ's contract for Farmar, Petro, Morrow, Jordan Williams, and DeShawn Stevenson (maybe or maybe not contingent on DWill going to the Nets - there's conflicting reports).
    2) Atlanta/UTA have reportedly agreed to trade Marvin Williams for Devin Harris.

    First or second week on the job and he's shed their two unmovable contracts for a bunch of short term pieces. If they move Josh Smith, suddenly next summer they're going to have Horford for $12m, Teague as an RFA, Bird rights on Harris and all those other guys, and then like $40m+ in cap room.

    Seriously unbelievable job of going from perpetual mediocrity to perfect rebuilding scenario. Just crazy. If these deals turn out to be real, I'm going to really really regret us not getting him the job in Philly.

    Also is Brooklyn's abbreviation BKN? Maybe BKY or BKL? I don't know.

    Also Dwight is ****ed if Brooklyn have $40m of DWill and JJ next season, because he'd have to take a pretty big pay-cut to go there.
    That really changes things for the teams willing to rent him, if he can't just walk to the Nets after the season. Maybe we should make a move. Or at the very least hold onto Brand as an expiring - that's going to have real value if Dwight's coming up to genuine free agency.

    Yeah the Dwight thing is dead, but it was looking bad for him in BK anyway. His best shot was over the last deadline, and he decided to opt in, in Orlando

    Honestly. When Billy re-signs Deron, I'm not mad at

    Deron Williams
    Joe Johnson / Marshon Brooks
    Gerald Wallace
    Power Forward
    Brook Lopez

    Not terrible for a team walking into a new arena in a new city

    Danny Ferry is on a roll.

    I would bet LeBron is pissed he never pulled this off when in Cle.

    Scola wouldn't mind playing for LAL....would be a better fit for LAL and the PF working in the high post than Pau is.

    Hawks are going to buy out Farmar
    DO NOT TRUST YOUR PETS TO NEMACOLIN WOODLANDS KENNEL

    On 7/20/14 we took our Calla and Pebble for a stay while on vacation. On 7/21 Calla, who is diabetic, was given 10x her insulin dosage. She wasn't found until 12 hours after being overdosed. After a week and a half of suffering we made the tough decision to put her down because of brain damage and a lack of a quality of life. She was only 7 and her breed lives until their 20's. Over half of our beloved Calla's life was stolen from us.

    They (ownership) probably didn't let him. They were so concerned with winning immediately and keeping Lebron, they never built a proper long term plan around him.

    This is the last time I have any doubts about someone who works in the Spurs FO.

    Great thread idea holly. I'm going to stick this, at least for now. There's a ton of action going on around the league, and a lot of it can directly or indirectly affect the Sixers. It's also good to be able to talk about things going on with other teams without having to deal with the nonsense in the main forum. If it doesn't catch on, we can just unstick it later.
