Agreed on the Arenas contract though he could have been a beast at SG with
a genuine PG alongside him, The general thought at the moment is that we will
ship out one of Jamison or Butler depending on who we can get the best value for,
As for Wall he looks nailed to be the number 1 pick but the way things are going this
season the Nets look like they will have quite a high percentage chance at getting
the first pick.

Number 1 overall pick Blake Griffin is to undergo knee surgery and will miss the rest of the season.

Could be worse a Grizzles fans with your organisation picking Hasheem Thabeet 2nd overall! Even on no legs Griffin still has a brighter future

This was pretty much what i was thinking. No chance of Lebron or Wade going to the Wizards but there are some nice players on the Market. Boosh might be reach of the imagination but Carlos Boozer might be around.

The Thunder taking Harden with the next pick didn't make much sense either.

I saw a rumour about the Lakers potentially trading Andrew Bynum to the Raptors for Chris Bosh. Not sure how reliable or accurate it is but thought I'd just throw it out there. Obviously the Raptors only do that if they really belieive Bosh won't stay there after this season but in that case, they'd be lucky if, somehow they can replace him with Bynum.

It seems like a win win trade though although I doubt it happens.

Harden seems a pretty smart pick now a much better pick thean Rick Rubio would have been.

Boosh isn't staying. It must be a sure thing by now. he wants to be on a contender and the Raptors haven't proven them self to be that. I think Bynum sticking with the Lakers would make more sense. That would probably mean moving GasoL to C. He is a power forward that is where he does his best work. The Lakers don't need retooling they are doing fine.
