they needed to clear PT for Oden and they wanted to dump the few Jailblazers that are left, this accomplishes both.

But why Channing Frye and Steve Francis? Where's Frye going to play? And Francis is a cancer with a big contract.


Frye will probably backup the 4/5 and allow them to go very big at times.

And that's all they could get for Zach Randolph, their star player?

The Knicks traded nothing out of their core for a guy that should improve them in a pretty big way.

OMG! Dicky V is flipping out and throwing papers in the air. "They didn't give me enough air-time BABY! I got all these papers and notes that i didn't get to use!"


:b :b That was hilarious. Dicky V finally lost it.

Michael Jordan just traded Wright (who has huge upside) for Jason Richardson... :b MJ is trying to challenge Ishiah for role of worst GM in the NBA.

JRich possibly to Charlotte. I personally think the move is okay for them despite Steven A. Smith's act there, and I don't think they were too far away from being a good team last year.

BTW Ainge agian added 2 very good players who slipped, in pruitt and Big Baby Davis. He has one strength as a NBA executive. He is not afiard to jump all over guys who fall to him. That is a very strong talent a lot GMs get locked in on who they think will be available when pick and then begin to over value those players and don't pick the guys who are falling.

This is what allowed Danny to grab Green and Jefferson. Too bad he is an aweful trader.

Uhh, I'd take the All-Star caliber J-Rich over a guy who hasn't stepped on the court yet anyday. Wright isn't going to be thaaaat good.


Wow, Its official

Does Davis remind anyone else of a Robert "Tractor" Traylor?
