    At his press conference in Philly he said Portland was one of the teams that tried to sign him. It's good to know we at least tried even though no one wants to sign here.

    All it takes is one person saying yes. Never know till you try.

    What do you think about Rose on what would be left of a Vets min salary?

    I'd be down with just about any new blood in here for the rest of the year. There are a few others I'd prefer over him, like Ilyasova if he gets bought out.

    As i understand it if they were to pick him up off of waivers and he agreed to come here they would only have the rest of the season % hit against the cap? That means they could essentially pay him 600K and not hit the tax?

    Kind of weird on this one because Belly Nelly would have fit this offense pretty well.

    Yes they do. But this is a former first round #1 pick who was also once an League MVP. You see the difference right?

    What league? The justice League? I don't recall the name Ilyasova in any NBA MVP race.

    The conversation changed to Derrick Rose because he just cleared waivers.

    This is noteworthy for any future buyout guys. We probably won’t get anyone but the interest should at least be there. I hope Ilyasova gets bought out. Carter is another one. Maybe even Zbo.

    Reminds me of my son's kindergarten class. His teacher encourages the kids to do their personal best. In other words, Neil Olshey sucks at his job.

    Jake Fischer of SI thinks Wilson Chandler could be bought out. He has a $12m player option for next season that I’m sure he would opt into, so I don’t know how Denver would work that out. I would totally sign him though despite his struggles.

    Ohhh gotcha. YEah, sorry, don't want him. He has basically walked out on two teams now.
    I think he is all but done at this point.

    Maybe he joins Oden in that 3league draft thing?

    Ilyasova already said he doesn't want to move again. He's not getting bought out.
