    If they don't tender Teague after next year, they only have Al Horford on the books at $12 mil.

    They can sign Dwight Howard and Chris Paul with no problems

    The Nets with Johnsonm Lopez, and Williams have three solid players plus MarShon Brooks. But who's going to play PF? Who can they afford?

    That's such a poorly run organization.

    Guessing they will end up resigning Kris Humphries. They also have Gerald Wallace

    Re: 2013 NBA Offseason News

    Deron Williams PG
    Joe Johnson SG
    Gerald Wallace SG
    PF?
    Robin Lopez C

    MarShon Brooks G
    Tyshayn Taylor PG

    That's their entire team right there. The two foreign guys don't look like they're going to come over. And, assuming Lopez and Williams sign for the money expected, they're over the cap already.

    Re: 2013 NBA Offseason News

    So I'm playing around with ESPN's Trade Machine:

    Who says no?

    Minnesota Timberwolves get:

    Pau Gasol

    Los Angeles Lakers get:

    Dwight Howard
    Derrick Williams
    J.J. Barea
    Brad Miller's non-guaranteed contract (Not sure buyout off top of my head)

    Orlando Magic get:

    Andrew Bynum
    Martell Webster's non-guaranteed contract ($600k buyout)

    I absolutely do not want Gasol, BTW. Just messing around with the trade machine

    That works for all three teams, IMO.

    Nice job. (Assuming the T'Wolves still want Gasol to play hybrid C/PF with Love.)

    Re: 2013 NBA Offseason News

    ^ And a trade like that would be the only way I move Derrick Williams

    Don't think Orlando does it though.

    Not in that form, Minny would also send the Memphis 1st they own in 2013 and their own 1st in 2014 to the deal

    I know this is pages back and now off topic, but I can't but help mention how absurd it is to suggest he retired to leave the city. As a Blazers fan and a someone who lived in the city and still has connections there, I can assure you that's not the case. (If you have any intel to back up your speculation, I'd be happy to read it.)

    He was unquestionably "the man" on that team, signed to a max contract, playing in the NBA city closest to his hometown. Portland absolutely adored Roy, and from all indications the love was mutual.

    He retired because he was extremely frustrated with his knees. The pain was supposedly unbearable, he often couldn't practice, and his minutes were limited as a result.

    It will be hard to watch Roy play elsewhere, but I wish him the best and would be thrilled, if not with a taste of bittersweet, to see him return to his old form.

    I wasn't talking about the city, more the organization.

    The organization as a whole, primarily upstairs, isn't exactly a bedrock of honesty and candidness, but I think that often gets more credit than it's due. That said Paul Allen and Larry Miller are not particularly likeable folks.

    I have little doubt that there's some truth to Ziegler's accusations, but to think Portland wasn't considering the long-game in dealing with Roy's knees seems silly. Was he rushed back on demand of management for the 2011 playoffs? Hard to say. But it would be unspeakably foolish for an organization a year into a max contract to rush the star player back at peril of his future.

    Allen and Miller have made some tremendously stupid moves, usually from a PR standpoint, but the team was built around Roy, to the point of input in moves, and that amount of influence and respect leave it hard for me to believe he wanted to leave town so badly as to retire.
