    Dude doesn't appear on Trade Machine, probably just his rights - he's 32.

    So, a salary dump, pure and simple.

    Well, if this says anything it says that Collins totally outplayed him and they realized that he wasn't going to be anything special.

    er, I mean DAMN YOU OLSHEY, YOU JUST TRADED AWAY JERMAINE O'NEAL PART 2!

    It's not that, it's that there were situations where Vonleh could be used to help our team next to Nurk, which we saw... but then it just stopped for months.

    Well, it sucks that they got little out of the trade with Batum/Charlotte, but on the plus side...at least they're not paying Batum 77 million over the next 3 years to average 12 points a game.

    Good move, but preferably isn't the only one.

    I'm sure that this is exactly who Lillard mentioned to Paul Allen.....
