Funny how the owners complain about losing so much money but than they start throwing around these horrible contracts again. Chandler has had 3 good years. Never had 2 good years in a row.

12 or 13 for Nene makes a lot more sense than close to max.

Chandler is merely a consolation prize for the players they want but won't get (Paul, Howard). Considering that they gave him 14.5 mil per year AND they have to cut Billups to make room for him means he's quite an expensive silver medal.

But it's an arms race in the East, and being that Miami picked up Battier and Curry New York had to sell the idea that they are keeping pace. Will be interesting to see if Chicago feels the need to play the same game.

More than that. They are hoping he can help them lure Paul there. can't see how they can afford him now though.

They'd have to catch up first to keep pace. Carmelo and Amare doesn't come close to Lebron and Wade not to mention the 3rd fiddle.

Chicago is just looking to upgrade the 2 which I'm sure they will. They are a contender. Even Jazz had people wanting to play for them when they were a contender.

Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin isnt close to naming a starting lineup, but he said Monday C.J. Miles and Gordon Hayward are in a battle with each other to see who comes out on top.

Haywood would seem hard to beat the way he finished the year. Maybe why AK is still in Russia too?

One change almost certain to happen this time around is a new emphasis on transition basketball, getting early, easy baskets, scoring quickly, an area of strength for Favors, who gets up and down smoothly and efficiently.

Well try to push it a little more, assistant coach Jeff Hornacek says. If you walk it up every time, its a grind.

Nice to hear! Liking the changes already. More D and pushing the ball. Makes even more sense to deal Okur, Al and Raja too if that's the style they will play.

Corbin on starting rotation: Getting a better view of it but still not set yet.

Considering that they still have at least one more guy coming to camp not to mention the possibility of Howard and/or AK and who knows who else they'll be lucky if anything is set by the trade deadline when it could all be dismantled again.

Quote:
Paul Carter: Tremendous athlete, first of all. He's a competitor. He can shoot the ball. He's long and rangy and can play some 3 for us. He's used to being a bigger guy in college but his athletic ability will let him play in the perimeter some. We look forward to seeing him playing the 3 role.

Jamaal Tinsley, Keith McLeod stepping up: I tell you what, they're really competing. They're really laying it out everyday. Keith is playing some 2 for us and some 1. Then Jamaal is a point with a lot of experience and will get into the games and making passes in tight spaces in the interior; pushing the ball up the floor; and then defending guys he really has demonstrated his veteran leadership here.

Tinsley looking like an NBA player: Oh, yeah. He's gotten himself and great shape. He's showing he can still compete at this level. He's been great.

Keith playing some 2 should help his chances which seem very slim with Earl's two year deal.

AK's still in Russia because it is going to take a ridiculous deal to get him back to the states and thusfar no one has been willing to shell out the bucks. Last I heard, he wants a minimum three year deal at $9 million per. Nice knowing you AK.

What he's asking for and what it will take are probably two very different things. What's he get in Russia? 5 mill?

I realize this makes sense because of the owner but I always got the impression Deron and AK didn't really get along.

I think Jazz only have mini mid level. SA too unless they amnesty Jefferson.

Jason Jones: Petrie described Kirilenko situation as "static" and said Kings would still be interested if he leaves Russia Twitter

Stefan Bondy: Deron on Kirilenko: "For the right price, hes a bargain. Hes a great player. He can help a team definitely in many ways." Twitter

Stefan Bondy: Billy King says he likes Andrei Kirilenko because of his versatility. Also complimented Kris Humphries for same reason. Twitter

Deron might be a GM someday. Don't usually hear players concerned about money other than 'give me more!'. "For the right price, he's a bargain" he must have stole from Yogi Berra though.

Sam Amick: Kirilenko playing for CSKA Moscow and isn't necessarily looking to leave. If he does, eventual price tag could be approx $9 mil/yr for 3 yrs Twitter

Adrian Wojnarowski: As @Frank Isola reports, Shawne Williams agrees to Nets offer. Now, Nets trying to close deal with free agent Andrei Kirilenko, sources say. Twitter
