Clippers now pursuing Ray Allen
Clippers now pursuing Ray Allen
George Hill signed a 5 year deal with the Pacers. I haven't seen a $$$ amount yet, but it was Tweeted by Mike Wells
Celtics pursuing Jason Terry as a backup plan if Ray Allen leaves.
Probasketballdraft: Keep hearing the Dwight Howard sweepstakes has wider net than many realize. One team to watch in particular is LA. Clippers are a darkhorse. Word around the league is that Dwight Howard's value has fallen because of back injury and the way he handled his impending free agency. One exec I spoke to said that a package of DeAndre Jordan, Eric Bledsoe, and Caron Butler might be enough. Relationship between Howard and the Magic is turning ugly in a hurry.
"I'm not going to allow my putative owner to answer that question, this is an NBA related press conference. Paul Tagliabue and Roger Goodell have collectively sung their praises of Tom and if uh ESPN has a problem with that tell Mr. Skipper to call me at my office."
Trade him to the Hornets for Vasquez, Ayon, and Dyson.

Per interesting tweet from @ProBasketballDraft regarding Clippers/Dwight Howard, source with knowledge of team's plans says no chance of a deal there so long as Blake Griffin or Chris Paul are the pieces Orlando pushes for in a possible deal. And, naturally, they would be.
Hah. Why would the Clippers do that?
Here's some discussion fodder: Remember when Williams said a while ago (think right after they won the lottery) that there were guys interested in playing here but that they were current under contract so he couldn't talk about them? Perhaps this lends itself to the notion that this year won't be the year of big spending and maybe some of those guys become free agents in 2013?
daldridgetnt: Despite Dwight Howard's desire to go to Brooklyn, there's currently no Nets deal that interests Orlando, according to source. Story up soon.

I have a feeling Howard ends up a Laker or
Rocket. It's been the only talent for talent type trades worth it for Orlando.
As teams finalize framework of Joe Johnson deal contingent on DWill commitment, Nets won't be sending future 1st to Atlanta, source tells Y!
Breaking: Nets "very close" to acquiring Joe Johnson from Hawks for Farmar, Petro, Morrow, Williams, Stevenson and protected pick (Houston).
Source indicated earlier that the Nets would proceed with JJ deal whether or not they get commitment from Deron Williams to stay w/Brooklyn.
I will never again say that a trade seems to unbelievable. Any trade is possible it just takes a GM ****ty enough.
I cannot understand why any team would bail Atlanta out of JJs contract. It is a huge albatross. He is good, but 31 years old with about $90 million left over 4 years. Amazing how stupid some GMs. The Nets will be built around JJ, DWill and Lopez I guess.
Is Billy King still the Nets' GM?
