I wish him the best of luck, he is a great player for any team.

I kinda want to see him go to a contender....I am hoping either the Hornets or Spurs

Latest news is that the Magic have offered Dooling a 2 year contract (3.8mil.), I know its a long shot, but how awesome would it be if he signed.:pray:
Also Smith said that Arroyo is still an option (I sure hope he signs somewhere else)
Cook, JJ and Bogans are being offered as trade bait, so we will see what happens.

As expected Dooling has rejected the Magic's offer and said it was ridiculous and he had automatically rejected it, from all he said, he was really pissed. Magic are in trade talks with the Grizz for Jarvis Critterion, meaning someone is on the move, it said Bogans and mutlple draft picks.( I wanted Lowry, but Critterion looks good too.)

You said it Superman. I think that would be a very good look if we got Keyon back. However I think Carlos is a last resort type of move i.e. if Dooling doesnt take it then maybe offer it to Arroyo or maybe even Lue. I wonder why Otis isnt looking at Memphis to do a trade with them, it seems they have a log jam at the point. They can have J.J. or Bogins. I think we should keep Brian Cooke, a shooting big is always a good commodity.

Well the one thing that we have going for us is that Dooling is vactioning with Nelson and Battie (with their families) out of the country, so hopefully they can do a good job to convince him to stay because we need him to stay and with Nelson, Williams and Dooling at the PG position, we will be alright.

Not to mention, if he comes back Cook, JJ and Bogans can be dealt to get a backup F/C.

I'd love to get Dooling back at the bi, but I doubt that is going to be the case. My second choice is Williams. He is older, and was turnover prone earlier in his career, but he could be a really good infusion of offense off of the bench and he is a good passer... also he said he wanted to play with Dwight.. what do you guys think about options if Keyon doesn't re-sign?

I'd also like to keep cook, if at all possible.

Same here. Cook's 3 point shooting was a very nice asset this past season.

I just read in this article that it is 3.8 mill for 2 years not the biannual exception.
It said the reason he won't sign is cause he wants a long term deal.
