My 2 cents.

1. Did NOLA shit themselves in the face by trading away Collison if ever Chris Paul decides we wants to be a full fledged Diva and joins the Knicks (or some other team) next year?

2. TJ Ford is most likely out of the rotation. By the end of last season it was Earl Watson who was playing heavy minutes backed up by Price.

Exactly on a sorry team...there was nobody else to score the ball and dish it so he took on the reigns. But we'll see.

paul is locked up for 2 more seasons. anything before 2012 offseason would have to be a trade.


Also, how does this trade work financially? NJN are absorbing extra salary in t murph( they have cap space), but how is Houston sending out 6.9 mil and only taking 1.3 back? Cant combine players and TEs.

The Pacers are in the stages of negotiating a buyout with TJ Ford. It's going to be interesting seeing what team he goes to. My money is on the Hawks for the minimum.

That's not a problem. Houston can take back as little salary as they want, they just can't take back more than 125% of Ariza's salary due to being over the cap.

SG: Martin (OFF) / Lee (DEF)
PG: Brooks (OFF) / Lowry (DEF)

With Hill, Jefferies, Harris, Hayes, Johnson & Taylor.
Very well rounded team.

Scola is good at taking charges. Other than that, he's not known for his defense, in fact, his post defense is below average. His offense stands out more than his defense.

My bad. I should have put, Scola (OFF) / Jefferies (DEF) . Patterson won;t get many minutes as a rookie

He is more of an offensive player, but his pick & roll defense is exceptional.
