Trade Rumors and the Like

Quick hits before I go to work.

  • The Wizards, Rockets, and Knicks are in talks about a three-team trade, Yahoo reports. The major pieces involved and their destinations: T-Mac to the Knicks, the most popular man ever Caron Butler and Brendan Haywood to the Rockets, and Al Harrington to the Wizards. Talk about a monster team for Houston if Yao Ming ever return from retirement and loses all that extra weight he picked up playing 2K10.
  • In the midst of Dwayne Wade’s recent comments about the coaching staff, the Miami Heat are apparently willing to part with forward Michael Beasley if the Suns are willing to part with Amar’e Stoudemire. The Heat would most likely have to negotiate a sign-and-trade because Stoudemire’s contract option is up after this season, giving him the opportunity to stay or go as he sees fit. Given the growing ire of Dwayne Wade, they wouldn’t want to afford him anymore reason to bolt this summer.
  • Elrod Enchilada has a solution for Beantown’s problems. Ainge, if you’re at all interested in helping your aging team turn back into a legitimate contender, I recommend starting Rasheed Wallace on a Jenny Craig plan. Stat. I also recommend allocating the funds and locating guys who rebuilt Steve Austin so you can rebuild the ever-ailing knee of Kevin Garnett. A bionic leg would be the first ever in NBA history.

Doctors to Danny Ainge: We can't rebuild him. We don't have the technology. Just trade him for 25 cents on the dollar and polish your ring.

  • The Cavaliers, much like this time every year, are interested in acquiring a piece from anywhere to complete their LeBron puzzle. This year it’s forward Troy Murphy of Indiana, but the Pacers want the promising J.J. Hickson in return.
  • Toronto has switched from mundane, commonplace statistical analysis of the past to futuristic, Philip. K. Dick-like statistical analysis of the future. Don’t get me wrong-they’re not all of a sudden pushing holographic yet touch-screen buttons like the pilots of Avatar, but they’re getting the job done, as evidenced by their recent surge in success. Credit Daryl Morey of the Houston Rockets for starting the trend in his over-zealous attempt to justify the acquisition of Shane Battier for the high cost of Rudy Gay.

    The new deal has Jamison and Butler going to the C’s for Scal, Ray ray, and JR Giddeons… Sounds like a good deal for the C’s to me!
