To me, Atlanta, Boston, and San Antonio seem like his most likely options if he wants to go on a playoff team.

Total nothing move. THey weren't going to play him and he was bitching so they arranged a buyout. For those of you asking how i know he is bitching, of all the acquired players, only Brewer had to be met with (Twice already) to talk to him about his playing time. It's been three games.

I highly doubt anyone wins or loses the title based on this.

any move that doesn't make sense is D'Antoni related... Walsh loves listening to whatever this guy says. "Donnie you've got to draft Jordan Hill" "Donnie you've got to take Gallo over Eric Gordon" "Donnie I hate Anthony Randolph, I know he was the most coveted prospect in the league last year, but he can't shoot 3's....trade him"

**** you D'Antoni. Balkman and Roger Mason are not better than Brewer

Corey Brewer's a scrub. He'll get a minimum salary deal for 2 years or so then bounce around Europe until he retires.

Atlanta makes the most sense IMO.

you know what this means? That we traded Anythony Randolph for NOTHING. You're telling me there wasn't other teams out there who wanted Randolph, was willing to take on Curry's contract, and give us an actual piece we wanted in return? Thats bull

People should know that any player who played only a few minutes for the TIMBERWOLVES cannot be very valuable.

Rod Thorn went on the radio this past summer and said Donnie was a genius for getting Randolph. Thorn added that he himself had been trying to pry Randolph from the warriors for 2 years without any luck.

No, there was not. Name the team that had cap space and would absorb Curry. You can't, very few teams had cap space that large, and even less of them wanted to use it. If you wanted to keep Randolph that means you don't get Melo. PERIOD.

Would be a reasonable pick-up for the Celtics. They lost a lot of defensive toughness off the bench with the departure of Tony Allen. He could fill in that role come playoff time.

When you factor in the injury proneness of Delonte West, I dont see any reason not to do it.

I hate this. Corey Brewer has always been my second favorite scrub (now my first since Dorell Wright is no longer a scrub).

At least it wasn't Balkman or Shelden Williams. I thought Brewer could've been a legit rotation player but it looks like Walker, Douglas and some nights Carter have the rotation guard spots taken up. I definitely would have waived Mason Jr, but maybe Walsh thinks his vet experience can come in handy. What a shame that he couldn't have been traded for a 2nd rounder or something... I could see him in Dallas or Boston (possibly Chicago, but one Brewer is enough)
