    That was probably done as leverage since he had a no trade clause and most likely didn’t want to go just anywhere. Don’t see why he would be against a buyout considering he’s on a one year deal and if Atlanta has no plans bringing him back then his bird rights are irrelevant.

    If Tyreke Evans gets bought out (I doubt it, they turned down 2nd rounders but...) we could offer him something no other team could: A starting spot on a playoff team.

    We got Ed Davis and Aminu, great free agent signings. We got Evan Turner too. Going back over the last 10 years, we got Andre Miller and Jamal Crawford too.

    Prolly doesn't want to move his family for just two months after going to like 4 cities in the last year or so. Understandable.

    Yeah, I think they might have had to wait until after their next game but it was really close.

    I don't think that applies if we claim someone off of waivers, I think their whole contract would count towards our cap number even though we'd only have to pay them for the remainder of the season. It might be different with Rose since he is a minimum contract guy but then wouldn't any team that wants him (like Minnesota) just claim him so it isn't his decision anymore?

    Denver
    Miami
    OKC
    Pelicans
    Spurs

    I think he’d start on all those teams. And he might not start in Boston but he would definitely get heavy minutes.

    Tyreke might be one of the few guys worth going back into the tax for. We still have our tax-MLE of $5.2 million. Spurs, Thunder, Pelicans, and Heat all used their MLE or most of it. Miami does have an injury exception and room exception that could come close to our offer but if it came down to money and playing time we'd probably at least have a shot.

    I agree but I still don’t think he’ll get bought out. Wouldn’t make sense. Why not just take the second round picks?

    Actually, now that I think about it we would probably just put in a waiver claim. According to the CBA you CAN claim a player off of waivers using a trade exception. The one we got for Vonleh would be just enough! The problem is who else would be able to claim him too that is lower than us on the waiver claim list. Right now it's so close between us and some of those teams you mention that it literally could come down to what day he was waived (if he is waived).

    Well, one reason would be since Tyreke is making a very low salary this year he could just agree to the buyout for basically $0. Then Memphis would be off the hook for his remaining salary. I agree though that they were very stupid to not get anything for him. I think they thought someone would cave on deadline day and no one did.

    Not Miami but yeah I forget how little wing depth there is in the NBA.

    Even though Vince Carter is 41 I would love for the Blazers to try for him if he gets bought out.

    That is the way i read it. But if he doesn't want to go there claiming him wouldn't be an option really? I just don't think a team would waste the time without talking to him first.
