    Houston renounced him. He is UFA.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    you can have all the cap space in the world, but if you are at the 13 player limit, it's not going to be used. We need to shed a player or two, depending on what signings we make after the Roy/Shved ones.

    I know there have been changes with the new CBA but my understanding is that they can have 15 signed but only 13 "active". I could not find anything that said that changed.

    We currently have only 10 players (I don't count Hummel) so we have room to sign 5 guys as far as I know. Is that not correct?

    early thursday get Lee's agent on the phone come to terms sign the deal. Sign Hill. Make Blazers overpay for Batum. Roy, Shevd, Hill, Lee, Cunningham. Good offseason IMO

    We just traded our 1st round pick because we needed quality wings. So far, Buddinger is probably our best move of the offseason so tading him for another PG makes no sense.

    Altogether, trading for Calderon whatsoever makes no sense. We already have quality backups at a much cheaper price. If anything, we'd be looking to trade onw to open up a little more cap space.

    you can go to 15 I guess. M. Lee is obviously put on the inactive list, who else? Wes? haha

    That would be my choice - maybe that would get his attention!

    M.Lee was not even in the Summer league (if I am not mistaken) so that should probably tell us something.

    they claim they didn't want him playing 5 games in 7 nights. Had surgery or something.

    No. It's the same surgery, but knee business usually takes a good 9 months to get back to 100% and they didn't want him to re-tear it going too hard with 2-a-days and a condensed schedule of likely high minutes. Remember, he only got about 12 minutes a game when he played and was still working his way back.

    That's too bad. He is the player I was looking forward to seeing this summer.


    PSD Grammar Lesson #1:

    a) their - stands for "belonging to them"
    b) there - means "over there" as in location
    c) they're - short for "they are"

    Not sure if I would go here but when the dust settles I wonder if Toronto would send Calderon to us for JJ (or Luke) and Johnson. Maybe try to get a pick back also. Johnson is a bit useless, and I like Calderon much more than JJ and a bit more than Luke. Also would really help Rubio as he is Rubio's mentor. He is on his last year and likely to sign next year much cheaper or 10 mil comes off of the cap. Win/Win?

    I would be fine with this honestly, for two reasons. First, Calderon is simply better then Barea, and Wes is garbage. Second, we could get out from under the JJ mistake, and Wes mistake, at the end of this year when Calderon expires.
