    Actually, I think we all know you pretty well here. You've posted far more ridiculous trades that you thought were serious than this one, so I can't say how anyone would believe it was a joke.

    Agreed about Landry fixing things . . . it doesn't.

    I think the Warrick-Williams flip makes it all work, if Shamsports is right and hoopshype is wrong.

    Everyone wants the deal to work just about as it is . . . the teams should be able to convince Charlotte to get involved.

    Removing Dyson frees up more space for Minne, so they may be able to free up a pick to send to Charlotte, as Phoenix might since they are the only ones not parting with a pick in the deal. The teams can send up to $3m total to Charlotte (if they haven't gotten cash so far), which can pay for the difference in salary and give the ownership something for their trouble.

    Both players are expiring forwards with about $1.5m difference in salary, and neither is anything to write home about.

    I see it as plausible.
    Thanks for for all the difficult math work you did 42! Just wish you had the exact numbers to work with.

    I would think that if this does not get finalized very soon, Minnesota will pull out of the proposed deal and move Johnson to someone wanting to take on the salary in order to get AK47 signed. Today may be critical in getting this done or it falling apart completely.

    I just can't stop thinking, why didn't Dell just sign Lopez to this same deal before we matched Gordon?

    Suns would've probably matched it without the trade, or he had other deals we was tring to work. Thats a good question tho.

    My guess is the Suns would have matched it, not to mention our collection of assets for a S&T were pretty different. At best we'd have been offering Jarret Jack's cap space in a 3way trade plus 2nds. This deal gets them the same cap space to dump Warrick, a late 1st, and a former top 5 pick even though he looks like a complete bust so far.

    Yeah, he was probably working on something else. Dell keeps things very close to the vest. I bet this trade was leaked from either the Suns or Wolves side.

    I really like Lopez, but damn he isn't worth all of that. They are lucky Kahn is such an idiot.

    You could be right, but it's not like they will get outbid for him. 10 million a year for him was a mistake when he was 5-6 years younger. What makes Kahn think he's worth that now?

    wondering what we gave up. Miller wasn't enough so I'm guessing X and Dyson are included in here somewhere.

    John Gambadoro ‏@Gambo620
    Deal had to be modified because pick Suns are getting via Memphis/Minn could turn into 3 mill & Suns already have received 3 mill from LA


    John Gambadoro ‏@Gambo620
    Under new CBA rules a team can not receive more than 3 million or pay out more than 3 million in any given year.

    Finally
    New Orleans Pelicans-Seattle Seahawks-Atlanta Braves-Anaheim Ducks

    PERFECTION

    Baptize them in the water out of Scarface pool,
    And feed 'em from the table that held Corleone's food,
    If you die, tell them that you played my game
    I hope your bullet holes become mouths that say my name.

    Nola.com first said the Miller contract would now be going to the Suns instead of Minnesota and that was the only change. now their article doesn't mention that.

    i'm so confused. what about the CBA issues we supposedly had with going over the cap? was that just incorrect info?

    http://www.nola.com/hornets/index.ss..._river_default

    whatever the problem was, i'm happy with the outcome. welcome lopez & warrick!
