Sacramento hasn't ruled out trading point guard Mike Bibby, and now views the Heat as a potential partner if it does, an NBA official said. The Heat would give up Jason Williams, but whether Miami would move Udonis Haslem in such a deal is questionable. Bibby, due $13.5 million and $14.5 million the next two seasons, could be packaged with forwards Kenny Thomas or Shareef Abdur-Rahim.
Anyway I wish we would just do a deal or not do a deal. I'm getting pretty sick of all the rumors and stuff. I just want to see something happen. I dunno how much credibility this has, I mean apparently Grant also said on KHTK though that the Kings would make 1-2 trades before training camp so I dunno.
I dunno there were reports earlier in the offseason we'd move them, etc. and we supposedly want to rebuild. Grant seems to say the Kings will make a trade every month though, I guess he figures eventually he'll be right. But now all the trade reports are sort of resurfacing or whatever you call it and I dunno.
Jason's just an 8 million dollar expiring contract though. He's not anybody who will be here for the future. He stays a year until he expires and we draft our PG of the future(Mayo, Rose, Gordon, Lawson, etc).
I like how they mention that the Kings will need to get a "mountain of draft picks" in return to unload Bibby or Artest. Really? A MOUNTAIN of draft picks?
That's like saying "the Rockets picked up a mountain of new players this offseason". Or, "gee, there sure are a mountain of referees involved in this betting scandal."
Does this guy realize that most NBA teams have 2, maybe 3, picks per year? Does he understand that teams can't really trade that many picks even if they wanted to since salaries have to match up for the trade to be legitimate?
I aint saying but I might just pay the dude anyway. It sucks not getting inside info and stuff.
Anyway I dunno, I don't think we're making a trade real soon. Atleast not a major trade. From everything I've heard(media etc.) Petrie's not real desperate to make any deals and the only way Riley/IT get Ron/Mike is if they want them bad enough where they pay what Petrie wants.
