first of all sorry for my english i am from greece and i try to speak as good as i can to understand me!!!
bulls-orlando-miny 3 way trade...
bulls get : howard-orton-richardson from orland and tolliver or randolrf from miny!
orlando get : boozer and asik from bulls and D williams ans wesley johnson from miny and chicago 1st round pick 2012 or draft pick from charlotee which bulls have it!!
miny get : noah and brewer from bulls and redick from orlando
so let me explane!!!
bulls: they get howard to play along with d rose and they don't loose deng who is very valiable in my opinion!!! line up :
c : howard (orton)
pf: gibson (tolliver or randolf)
sf : deng (richardson)
sg : hamilton (korver)
pg :d rose (watson)
i think is a team tha can go to the finals and get them!!!!team with great balance of defence and offence inside and outside.....
minnesota : they get a great center to per with love!!now they have a true center with great motor energy passing skills basketball IQ and defence and a pf wich is one of the top 5 in the nba!!i think is an amazing combination for the post!!!noah-love= great defence-great offence!!they lose williams but they get o proved good center!!also they lose johnson but they get two veteran and experiance players to field the sg position...brewer and redick with ellington can run the sg position better than johnson...line-up :
c : noah (milicic-miller)
pf : love (pekovic-randolf or tolliver)
sf : beasley (webster)
sg : brewer (redick-ellignton)
pg : rubio (rindour-barea)
and if beasley is not good for sf position they can use : him - barea - rindour - ellignton - miller - pekovic - milicic to make a packeg for a better sf like gay granger batum stefan jackson or josh smith!!
orlando : they lose howard and some role players (richardson - redick - orton ) but they get a very good veteran player which is carlos boozer ....a true young center with much potential which is omer asik...two young players with great potential too williams (2nd overall pick in 2011) and wesley johnson (4th overall pick in 2010) and a first round pick in an excellent draft year!!!so they have a core of young players to bild around (williams - johnson - asik- davis - anderson - harper) and two first round pick in an excellent draft!!and then they can trade some players who have good value (nelson - richardson- anderson - davis - duhon - clark) to find an upgrade in pg and sg position and to find a back up center ...lain up :
c : asik (davis)
pf : boozer ( anderson - harper)
sf : williams ( turkoglu - clark)
sg : richrdson (johnson - wafer)
pg : nelson ( duhon)
so orlando next year: amnesty turkoglu... resign asik and anderson ... if the team have the first draft pick 0- 15 i ll draft a sg like lamb - beal - MKG - rivers or ross and with the second first round pick i ll draft i true pg to run the flor like marshall - kabongo - teague and if i couln't draft a pg i ll go with an other center with potential like zeller brothers - leonard - fab melo - henson.....so if orlando are laky the team in 2013 would be like this....
c : asik (davis)
pf : boozer (anderson)
sf : williams ( jonhson - clark)
sg : lamb ( richardson - wafer)
pg : kabongo ( nelson - duhon)
and my finale move would be to trade one of nelson or richardson for a legit center or for a draft pick between 20-30 so i can get a center from the draft....
I'm not quite sure I like what Orlando gets. Orlando can get better offers than Asik, Boozer, Williams and Johnson. Boozer is a liability defensively. Asik is still learning, and I don't think he is ready to start. He plays a lot like Marcin Gortat. And honestly I'd pretty upset to not get Noah out of this deal. I mean when you give up the best center in the game today, you had better get a pretty good center to replace him. Asik isn't there yet. He might get there, but that doesn't always mean he's going to. Johnson may have been the 4th pick of the 2010 draft but he has done nothing to prove his worth. Williams is young, and has a lot of potential, but again like Asik that doesn't always mean he's going to be great.
Try to make it so Orlando gets Noah and Minny gets Asik, and then it might work. In the end though, I really think Howard is going to Boston or Dallas via free agency.
considering someone had John Wall to Lakers for Ron Artest this is a great scenario for Bulls & Minny. Your final Orlando projection looks okay, but there is no guarantee with Kabongo and Lamb which is in the best case. If you trade Howard you want/need some type of proven guarantee, so I don think Otis would bank on rookies panning out.
they get a great center to per with love!!now they have a true center with great motor energy passing skills basketball IQ and defence and a pf wich is one of the top 5 in the nba!!i think is an amazing combination for the post!!!noah-love= great defence-great offence!!they lose williams but they get o proved good center!!also they lose johnson but they get two veteran and experiance players to field the sg position...brewer and redick with ellington can run the sg position better than johnson...line-up
San Antonio Spurs – Every year it seems like the NBA-watching public forget about the Spurs. Season after season, San Antonio continually produces a championship-level product on the court. Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili, Tim Duncan and, now, Kawhi Leonard represent one of the more formative foursomes in the NBA today.
Love talked about several instances in the game when Roy caught the ball and wanted to go left, but Love was in his way. Love remembers that, and he's already looking to correct it. With more time together, it should be an easy fix.
There are so many factors tugging the importance of what happened on Tuesday in either direction. Yes, Love, Roy and Kirilenko combined for 56 points. But it was against an inferior opponent, hardly an NBA-caliber squad. (Scale tips in one direction.) But Maccabi Bazan Haifa nearly beat Golden State last week. (Scale tips a bit back in the other.) And this was the first time the first-team offense seemed to hit a rhythm. (Tips a bit further.)
Training camp isn’t the only growth Irving has undergone since last season ended, however. He also spent some time in Las Vegas over the summer with the USA Select Team training with other All-Stars and All-Stars-to-be. After that, he was supposed to remain in Vegas to play with Cleveland’s Summer League team, so his time there would have been even more productive had he not lashed out at a wall in frustration during a practice, injuring his hand bad enough to keep him from pairing with rookie Dion Waiters in league competition. Despite the setback, Irving was still able to pick a few things up while in Nevada.,hgjkg
It’s easy to laugh now, but this season should still prove to be a challenging one even with some added talent and another year of growth from Irving. There’s a lot of youth on this team—and there could be even more should Anderson Varejao end up getting traded at some point as expected—so expectations for the Cavs are still understandably tempered.ju565
Now, the lockout is a distant memory, but Evans’ patience is being tested once again. This time, the waiting game is free agency. The regular season will get underway in two weeks, but the 33-year-old guard remains unsigned. Several teams have tried to sign Evans to a non-guaranteed deal, but the veteran has no interest in signing a make-good contract at this point in his career.
Moments after the game, his cheeks still flushed from his 28 minutes on the court, Kirilenko found the words to capture what the Timberwolves have been talking about all this time. There's no need to expound any further, really, or to explain why these vague C-words matter – not after Kirilenko waved his hands as if he was conjuring some kind of spell and put it in so few words:
Life as a professional basketball player hasn’t been easy for Indiana Pacers swingman Gerald Green. Most young men with his level of talent come into the NBA, either fail or succeed, and then move on with their lives. Green’s story, however, has been one of failure after failure, which is what makes his redemption with the New Jersey Nets last season all the more inspirational.
“I thought (Varejao) was probably a little uncomfortable because he has played at five for the last three years for me, so switching to the four spot, there were certain plays where he was just a little lost. That is why we are down there right now working with him on the four spot, so he can get that. Andy is a fast learner, so I don’t think he will have any problem learning the four spot because when he is in there with Tyler that is the position he will be playing. I love the energy and how physical they were out there together and that was something I wanted to see.”
Smart’s biggest challenge when he took over the Kings last year was to gain the trust of DeMarcus Cousins and help him grow into a player and a person who is a franchise cornerstone. That process got off to a great start last season, and Cousins seems to have taken the next step heading into the new season.09-=9-90-980
“What I’ve tried to do, one, from talking to them all throughout training camp, is I’m looking for our team to develop, for our team to have the right kind of chemistry, which is going to help us win,” Smart said. “I used different lineups in camp. I said the goal for us is for our team to succeed more so than any of you individuals. We have to buy into that if we’re going to win, and you guys communicated to me that you want to win, it’s going to take an abundance of sacrifices for our team to have a great, winning season. You guys have to make a decision that that’s the way we’re going and you can handle it. If not, you know where my office is. You can come talk to me and say, ‘Hey Coach, I can’t handle this. Can you and Geoff do something to change my address?’”dfsfg432323
The right knee of Dallas Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki has been problematic for him this preseason. He’s battling persistent swelling that could be fixed with arthroscopic knee surgery, but that would keep him out anywhere from three-to-six weeks.
“I’m doing everything I can not to have surgery,” Nowitzki said after the Mavericks’ 123-104 victory on Monday night. “I guess that’s obvious that I really don’t want it done now. If I want to do it, I would love to do it after the season, get through the season somehow, but the swelling came back three or four times now. That’s obviously not good news.fgsddf3223
Of course, it all comes down to what the Mavericks’ physicians feel is the right choice. If they feel he can last through a tolling NBA season, then he should pass. However, if they feel the operation is in his best interest, by no means is it a blow he and the Mavericks can’t recover from. In fact, it could be one that makes them better down the line as a result.p789070987
