    He traded Tolliver and Baze for Ariza and fan favorite Wenyen Gabriel. He also created roster spot by trading Skal.

    Kinda bullshit to negotiate with players on terms like this before the deal actually happens. How is it allowed in the CBA?

    This is exactly what they used to call under-table-deals.

    This is about when we heard the Gasol to Toronto deal that bolstered their title hopes last year.

    it's perfectly legal under the CBA as long as the team owning the contract, in this case OKC, gives permission

    Why is Neil not on the phone offering that 3rd year??! He thinks 36 year old Melo and 35 year old Ariza are the answer for Dame’s prime??!

    7 more minutes to trade Whiteside for LeBron. You heard it here first and if doesn;t happen I'm going to protest in front of Olshey's house.

    Interesting, maybe we are more extreme than other sports towns in the value we place on guys, I should clarify that my experience leads me to believe were similar to other places, but I suppose experience may vary!
