Default Marion to Dallas; Grizzlies involved

It appears that the Dallas Mavericks and Toronto Raptors have successfully recruited the Memphis Grizzlies to help them complete a trade that would eventually route free-agent swingman Shawn Marion to the Mavericks, according to NBA front-office sources.

Yet sources told ESPN.com that the deal, while very far along, has not been finalized and was unlikely to be completed before Thursday at the earliest, with the trade potentially including a fourth team in its final form.

The Mavericks' interest in a sign-and-trade deal for Marion emerged Tuesday but requires Dallas and Toronto to find at least one more team to facilitate the trade because the Raptors can't waive Stackhouse without incurring an extra $2 million in payroll for next season, which would slice into the cap space they have earmarked to sign prized free agent Hedo Turkoglu away from Orlando.

But the Grizzlies' participation would involve Memphis absorbing Stackhouse's $7.25 million contract and buying him out for $2 million before the Aug. 10 deadline in Stackhouse's contract. It's believed that the trade will stipulate that Dallas pays that $2 million to the Grizzlies to cover that expense.

So it looks like we're trying to get in the good books of yet another team. It's a smart move, because it opens up future trading possibilties. Kind of like owing the Grizzlies one, because of what they done here. Or we're just getting taken advantage of because of our voluptuous cap space.

Yep.

Its by far the most depressing eventful offseason I can remember.

From the way the market looks we could've gotten Glen Davis for $4-5 Million per year and still had money left over to add more role players including an actual 6th Man to fill out our depth.

We could've got Brandon Bass as well and then gone after a shooter like Luther Head and a point guard like Jarret Jack and still had money left over. I get pissed every time I think of Zach F'n Randolph.

Unfortunately, teams are looking at us like

Mark Cuban:"Well since you're not going to use your cap space, can we help you faciliate our trade by giving you some picks or cash...more importantly cold hard cash."

Chris Wallace:"How much cash are we talking about here?"

Mark Cuban:"About $2 Million to buyout Jerry Stackhouse from his contract so we can sign him later for the Veterans minimum"

Chris Wallace:"But that just pays for our costs, we dont profit from doing it, I think we could get more to make it fair ya know"

Mark Cuban:"Well we'll just call Sam Presti to see what he can....."

Michael Heisley:"Deal."

Chris Wallace:"Mr.Heisley what are you doing on the phone?"

Michael Heisley:"I have your phone calls on speaker to make sure you're not letting money get away"

Mark Cuban:"Great, I'll send over the paperwork"

Mark Cuban:"Hey Mike, by the way is Rudy Gay available?"

Michael Heisley:"He'll be in 3 years once I cut salary costs again to rid the team of his contract"

I actually find myself getting excited over this Free Agent class only to realize that we invested most of our salary cap space into acquing ZBO.

Just like I sometimes forget we used the #2 pick on Adonal Foyle.

We have huge cap space and Wallace and Heisley are retards. They really should think about teaming up and creating a Saturday morning TV programme that shows their wacky adventures. Instead of having one moron and one sane person to keep things in perspective, we have two morons and no sane people. Kind of like the Chuckle Brothers.

BTW, the Chuckle Brothers is UK thing, I don't know if they made it to the states. Here's a link if anyone's interested (I doubt any of you are) - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ChuckleVision

This shows the kind of stuff I could see Heisley and Wallace getting up to - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=blLWmEeVdPI

Mayo and Gay were all the scorers we needed.

Because it seems Heisley can't refuse any kind of deal, good or bad. This one is nothing special, the only positive thing is that we got rid of Buckner.

Im thinking maybe were helping out all of these other teams in these sort of trades, so that down the road they will lean more to helping us in trades.

Yeah I think so too, they'll be more than willing to give us their bad expirers for our star players when the time comes.
