He may get a rude awakening just like Ron Artest did a few years ago. In Ron's case he saved face by signing for a full MLE deal at 5/$33 Million on a Championship team. Maybe West could follow the same route, but this time to a team like San Antonio.


Dude its a virtual certainty he's gonna get at least like 25 million dollars. And as soon as he scribbles his name on the dotted line, its guaranteed.

As opposed to only 8 million left on a contract and having to risk further damage and possibly career ending injury for an entire season without any insurance past that season.

This is actually a no brainer for David West. Whoever his agent is has been doing this for years and knows what hes doing. Slow your roles, ISH financial advisers...

Maybe Milwaukee works out a sign and trade,

If he leaves NO, so does Chris Paul. Rondo and Green could get it done...

It doesnt matter if West leaves or stays, Paul is leaving no matter what. West is not a good enough incentive.

Well yeah, but I think this pushes the deal ahead.

In terms of signing him outright? Not sure, and those that can might not be able to post-lockout...

No team is going to trade anything of value for Paul unless they know he wants to sign there long term. That takes out about 90% of the league. The only way I see NO trading Paul is if Okafur is included as well, but we won't know if thats possible until a new CBA.

granger (35)/dunny (13)
west(34) /hansbrough (24)
hibbert (28)/foster (10)

True. If I remember correctly 22 NBA teams are losing money.

Russy+Perkins.

I really think CP3 goes to OKC, when OKC extends him.

If the rumours about Paul and Howard wanting to play together are true, Boston is the ideal destination, and CP3 would sign an extension there if Howard were to come.

Don't see why NO wants any part of Perkins' contract, never mind him as a player.
