Okay Kahn, just make the trade offer (NO Williams or Pek) and if they don't take sign the offer sheet and let us move on. I think it is pretty clear to all paying attention they do not want to deal with us. Iggy is still out there to be had and so is C-Lee and Mayo.
The Portland GM is a new guy. He will do everything he can to make a point early on in his career there. He will lock up much of his cap space with Batum and handcuff his team for the next four years. That's fine. That's cool.
We need to go for Iggy. That is the name Love would recognize as a "big move" for him.
Jesus ffffing Christ! That damn offer sheet was supposed to be submitted on first day, 11th! Tomorrow, we would know the outcome. And seeing their offers for Hibbert/BLopez went to hell, they probably wouldn't match!!
Submit the beeping offer already!!!
Chris Vernon @ChrisVernonShow
heard that if deal goes through with TWolves + Grizz it will be Wayne Ellington for Dante Cunningham
John Hollinger @johnhollinger
Griz have no exceptions but Minn could get Dante Cunningham and route to third team.

It sounds like we don't have enough cap to submit the offer sheet. This blows. Just give up and go for Lee.
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"
Here is a link from the commercial appeal. I would be interested in Ellington most likely out of the three. What would you guys think of a Ellington, Johnson, or Webster trade for Cunningham?
For the Grizz, Ellington is a decent bench player with a nice pull-up stroke, but he is streaky. Somewhat undersized, but he plays hard and is a great team player/personality.
I'd much rather have Courtney Lee at $15M for the life of his contract or thereabouts. Let's be patient and finish up with Batum and if that doesn't work, move to Lee.
