Default Re: Trades,Free Agency, Draft Thread

The Rockets have traded Samuel Dalembert and the No. 14 pick to the Bucks in exchange for the No. 12 pick, Jon Brockman, Jon Leuer and Shaun Livingston.
This seems like a slam dunk for Milwaukee. The draft pick difference is minimal, Brockman and Leuer are both low-end NBA power forwards (an overflowing position for the Bucks), Livingston was expendable, and the Bucks address their most glaring roster need: a quality starting center. Dalembert (who will earn $6.7 million in the final year of his deal) immediately slots into the C position ahead of Ekpe Udoh, Larry Sanders and Drew Gooden, and he should easily exceed the 22 minutes per game he averaged for Houston last season.

Well Dale is gone... i think franchize likes him.

The Kings have reportedly rejected Houston's offer of Kyle Lowry and the 16th pick for the No. 5 pick and Chuck Hayes.
The Rockets are desperately trying to move into the Top 5 for tomorrow night's draft, but have been unable to do so thus far.

Too bad the Knicks cant afford him.
Jamal Crawford officially informed the Trail Blazers that he will opt out and become a free agent this summer.
This is not surprising, but it does mean that the Blazers won't be able to trade him and Crawford will be free to sign with whatever team he chooses. There are rumors that he could end up in Minnesota, but his options are basically wide open at this point.

I hope the Knicks give him a call.

Kevin Martin is not interested in re-signing with the Rockets after this season, a source tells Sam Amick.
Martin's expiring contract has long been viewed as a trade chip, and it's not all that surprising that the veteran doesn't want to make his long-term future in Houston. He and coach Kevin McHale have not seen eye-to-eye since McHale came in, and it would not be a shock to see Martin moved to a different destination before the 2012-13 season begins.
