    Looks like the Mavs and Delonte are parting ways.

    A source told ESPNDallas that the team is negotiating West’s release with his agent, Dan Fegan. West, who started his career with the Celtics, was suspended Thursday for conduct detrimental to the team. It was West’s second suspension, though the first suspension lasted just 21 hours, ending after West met with coach Rick Carlisle and president of basketball operations Donnie Nelson.

    I feel for this kid. One of best friends was diagnosed with Bi-polar about 5 years ago... alot of people don't realize how to tough of an illness it is to continuously battle throughout your life.

    I hope for his sake, that he finds another home in the NBA. Otherwise I fear the worst for him... losing the game he loves due to his illness might push him over the edge.

    One of my older brothers suffer from Bipolar, as well as some other mental issues, sometimes he's awesome and sometimes he's not. I feel for Delonte as well and I think you make a good point about him being out of the league, probably wouldn't help his illness at all. I wish we had a roster spot, unfortunately I don't think I would cut anybody on our roster to bring him back.

    SI: Statistics suggest Joel Embiid will fully recover from foot surgery. But it could be 9-12 months before he plays http://bit.ly/1qwZuIB

    Holy smokes, can't say I really saw that coming. I remember hearing Ainge was pushing for Harden instead of Green when we made the Perkins deal, could you imagine a back-court of Rondo-Harden? I think Kevin Martin fits in well with OKC and Jeremy Lamb is a good young piece going forward. Guess they were displeased he turned down the 4yr/52M offer.

    I actually like it for OKC. I mean, I like it for both sides but I think people are overreacting a bit. Martin will thrive as a 6th man, while I think people are really underrating the picks that they got. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Toronto's only top 3 protected? That should be a top 8-12 pick. With Dirk hurt it's not completely crazy to think the Thunder might have 2 lottery picks next year. I'm also high on Lamb.

    I'm trying to think, but it's hard to come up with a good trade Boston could have come up with. Obviously you dangle Avery Bradley.. Sullinger has value.. and picks. They needed to get back consistent points to make up for the loss.. and we don't have that to offer.

    No doubt his awful Finals performance last year had something to do with it. Maybe they feel Martin will help them more in big games than Harden did.

    I'm still feeling like they could have gotten someone better around the league than Martin, though.

    They got Martin, Lamb and three draft picks. That's an excellent haul.

    And no, the finals had NOTHING to do with it. It came down to money. They offered him a deal, and he wanted a max. They're trying to stay out of luxury tax jail, so they had to move him for the best package they could find before the season started so they can still build chemistry as the season goes on.

    Holding him and dealing him at the deadline would be a bigger risk because it would upset team chemistry later in the season.

    OKC is just as good as they were 48 hours ago.

    And even better in the long run.

    Okc was pushing to get chandler parsons, if they could have gotten him as well in that package then i think okc would have been the clear winner in the trade.
