    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 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.

    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

    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

    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

    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.

    I really like what Ferry is doing in Atlanta. All of a sudden, the Hawks went from being stuck for years to come, to being a major player in the 2013 offseason. They can now make a move for Dwight if they want too and pair him with Josh Smith, and probably could make by far the best offer for him: Horford, Teague, draft picks... I'm kind of jealous actually. Maybe Ferry learned a lot in San Antonio and learned from his mistakes in Cleveland. I definitely did not want him in Philly, but who knows, maybe he would have been able to do some pretty aggressive things to give us a better future.

    Looks like the Clippers are trying to get back into the Dwight race, but without including CP3 or Blake, their offers are pretty pathetic (Jordan, Bledsoe, Butler, draft picks).
