    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.

    I am second guessing at whether you can acquire a TPE in a trade where you don't send money out now.

    Need the details.

    KAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHN!

    I think the media just like putting the Wolves name in everything just to torture us!
    I see nothing in this post that mentions us.

    "The makeover of the Atlanta Hawks has taken an interesting turn.

    As new general manager Danny Ferry unloaded Joe Johnson and Marvin Williams, it appeared that the roster was being blown up for a rebuilding project. Instead, it appears the Hawks just wanted to move some pieces.

    The Bulls are sending Kyle Korver, pending a physical, to the Hawks, the Chicago Tribune is reporting. What it's in exchange for is yet to be determined. It could be a future draft pick or it could be a sign-and-trade for Kirk Hinrich. The Hawks are absorbing Korver into the trade exception created in the Joe Johnson deal.

    The Bulls have already reportedly agreed to a deal with Hinrich and moved Korver to make room for him.

    The Hawks clearly aren't content with a total rebuilding project and are looking to restructure the roster while remaining competitive. After signing Lou Williams, the Hawks have added a marksman in Korver who will space the floor and strengthen their bench.

    The Bulls had until Sunday to either guarantee Korver's $5 million option for 2012-13 or waive him and pay Korver $500,000. Unloading him was probably necessary, but he's played a big role for Chicago adding a shooter on the perimeter for Derrick Rose.

    Korver 8.1 points and 2.4 rebounds in 22.6 minutes per game while shooting 43.2 percent from the floor."

    "Brad Miller has been traded to the Hornets, along with two future second round picks, for a future conditional second round pick.
    Miller is expected to retire, but this move frees up some additional cap space for the Timberwolves so they can officially extend their offer sheet to Nicolas Batum. "

    T-Wolves shouldn't be afraid to trade for Iggy if they do go to plan B. I think what Iggy never had was really a point guard who is like Ricky Rubio that is able to create plays for Iggy. Iggy's number the last couple years are down but I believe Ricky Rubio will help Iggy numbers go back up again with his court vision passing to Iggy. Ricky Rubio helps his teammate in a numbers of way to help them be a better player. That's why I believe trading for Iggy wouldn't be a huge problem at all. Iggy and his big contract that remains is definity worth it in my opinions. The guy is a great defender, very good at stealing the ball, and average over 5 assist and 5 rebound the last 5-6 years for a shooting guard. If the T-Wolves do acquire Iggy the T-Wolves will be one of the better passing team with Ricky Rubio, Iggy, and Kevin Love.

    someone please explain what we got out of the Korver trade. Most sites have the Bulls trading him to the Hawks "through" us, and us giving up a second rounder. WTF did we get back?
    the greatest inequality is the equal treatment of unequal people.

    TPE - we can trade for a player worth $5M or thereabouts I think without sending out a player and we can be over the cap doing it.

    That is my understanding of it, akin to the Lamar Odom deal where the Lakers have an $8M TPE where they can simply take on a player without trading anyone.

    My question is whether we can use it to get Jordan Hill/would we be able to pay him more than the Lakers in a S&T? Say: we use up our cap on Batum, use our mid-level on Roy, can we use this exceptiong to get Hill and pay him $4M (Lakers can only offer $3.something)?

    Am I missing something or does this deal with Korver mean that we have already made another deal that this deal facilitates. Why else would we have facilitated the Korver trade and gave up a pick doing it?

    Until the full details of the Korver trade are released, we can't explain anything. It obviously created more space financially whether it was cap space, or the ability to take a trade while being over.

    Don't really understand why the T-Wolves will help 2 teams finalize a trade when they don't get crap back...

    The teams needed the Minnesota Timberwolves to facilitate the deal, which will save the Bulls $500,000 and net either a second-round draft pick and player exception or a player with a small contract from the Wolves, the Chicago Tribune reported.

    OK, so if, technically speaking, we traded a second rounder for korver, then traded korver to atlanta without taking anything back, we get a TPE equal to his salary?
    So the trade looks like:
    Bulls pay 500k for a second rounder and cap space
    Atlanta gets Korver
    Wolves get TPE for second rounder
    Is that right?
