Yes except neither is a FA as per topic Mr Moderator

Loosing Deng leaves Chi town short in scoring options so they would have to be able to afford to get a replacement on Deng - sign the restricted FA center - and if not mistaken Jose costs a little more than Deng does right now using up cap they dont have. Just off the top my head is Jose 10.5 and Deng 8 ??

Chi towns big deal if one happens is likely around reversing the mistake of Boozer.

Lowry is no FA either ? :LOL:

Give me a break, I'm new here

Figured this was the best place to pitch the idea as it wasn't worthy of its own thread. I'll walk away sadly now..

I don't mind the trade or discussing it on this thread. I'm certain BC will work on the fly come Thursday. Looking forward to who we draft!

deng make 13.25 million next season, so financially it makes sense. But they would want more than Jose to do the deal. Deng could fetch a lot more around the league than that.

MAYBE Jose + Ed or next year's pick.

It seems as though other than Nash and Batum, the raps have also shown interest in Lin, and Ilyasova. I would hope that if Nash falls through, we would pursue one of the Rockets' PG's. Lin would need to be offered a backloaded deal in the likes of 5/5/15/15 on a 4yr 40M deal - no thanks.

It also seems that the Grizz actually do intend on keeping Gay and will look to move ZBo first.

It also appears that the Wolves have offered Batum a "near max" contract. I don't know if the raps will still be interested.

If Ilyasova does not pan out either, I wonder if the lines of communication are open with Philly in regards to Iggy, and what it would take for a deal.

I've also read that the raps are interested in AK47.

How has he been playing in Europe?

Can you imagine if the only black dude in our starting line-up is derozan? Not that I have a problem with it, but

I believe he won the mvp award for the league he was in.
Not sure but I remember hearing.

I think it is 50/50 that he will come back to the nba and then he would probably be courted by the nets.
