Report: Devean George blocks Kidd trade!
 
ESPN (Marc Stein) reports: With the New Jersey Nets poised to complete a blockbuster deal to send Jason Kidd back to Dallas on Wednesday night, Mavericks reserve forward Devean George has unexpectedly exercised his right to block the trade, according to NBA front-office sources. Sources close to the situation told ESPN.com that the teams verbally agreed to the deal earlier Wednesday and were preparing to submit the trade for league approval when George informed the Mavericks that he wouldn’t consent to being included in the deal, which is his right based on a rare provision in his one-year contract.

netsfan549 02-13-2008 10:14 PM

so no nets deal?
 
since D.George has a no trade clause

Re: so no nets deal?
 
Nah, Dallas can sub others in. Worst comes to worst, you use Van Horn as a tiny expirer.

It will still get done but it will be tomorrow.

Why the hell does he have a no trade clause? NBA should just strike it from his contract and move on.

Wow, they gonna have to buy this dude out so he can go where he wants.

He is always welcome to LA if they'd ship Karl to the D League.

I thought it was some joke when I heard it. It's not like he's the center piece anyways.

Re: Report: Devean George blocks Kidd trade!
 
Wow, so a scrub who is nothing more than an expiring contract thrown in to make the salaries match just killed a blockbuster trade.

If I were Cuban, I'd make the trade work without George, then call George into my office, ream his bench warming butt out from here to next Tuesday, and then cut him!

I doubt this kills the trade totally, but man, George is gonna have a bullseye on this back after this stunt!

Wow. I George will be popular on the Mavs after this.

insidehoops 02-13-2008 10:30 PM

Re: Report: Devean George blocks Kidd trade!
 
I assume they'll just find some way to work around it. But this may force the Mavs to trade some other player that they don't want to trade. Or maybe it'll be a simpler fix. Either way, I'm sure the Mavs are pissed.

bjtrdff 02-13-2008 10:30 PM

Re: Report: Devean George blocks Kidd trade!
 
He won't block the deal. They'll replace him with someone else. The trade will go through, and I'd say that in either case, George won't be around the Mavs much longer.

Apparently they might sign and trade KVH.

LMFAO

i was shocked that devean freaking george has a no trade clause

Jimmy2k8 02-13-2008 10:36 PM

Re: Report: Devean George blocks Kidd trade!
 
If Mavs can't work their way around this trade, then we can pretty much say that George saved the Mavs from being split apart.

dwade3ai3 02-13-2008 10:37 PM

Re: Report: Devean George blocks Kidd trade!
 
I'd do the same thing.

Valliant13 02-13-2008 10:40 PM

Re: Report: Devean George blocks Kidd trade!
 
Not a bad move by him, though. He will likely get bought out, and get to sign with the team that he wants. He gets two paydays, and he doesn't have to play on a terrible Nets team going nowhere.

G-train 02-13-2008 10:41 PM

Re: Report: Devean George blocks Kidd trade!
 
Cuban paid George under the table to exercise it, so Donnie doesnt do the trade.

j/k of course

bagelred 02-13-2008 10:42 PM

Re: Report: Devean George blocks Kidd trade!
 
Is George insane?

If he ruins this deal for the Mavericks, every citizen of Dallas is going to kill this guy. What is wrong with him? He's a free agent at years end anyway.... If the trade doesn't happen, Kidd will "accidentally" throw a pass against the Mavs right into George's face. Whoops!!!!

bagelred 02-13-2008 10:45 PM

Re: Report: Devean George blocks Kidd trade!
 
As it turns out, Gregg Popovich vetoed the trade so it didn't go through.

Damn you, Pop!!!!!

Just took a quick look at Dallas' salaries, I think they can just sub George out for Trenton Hassell...if the Nets are willing to take on the final 3 years of his contract.

I smell a conspiracy...

You don't F*ck with Cuban.... If George wanted out ... this is his ticket.
He will get waived by NJ.

Cuban should find another scrub.... and then make George sit on the
bench the rmainder of the season.

F*ck Devean George.

Nets aren't going to do that. That's an extra $9 million on the books.

Why don't the Nets just give George assurances that he'll be bought out. Then he can go whereever he wants and get double salary, even rejoining Mavs.

Maybe Stern paid George under the table to annoy Cuban! haha

really can you blame him? hes not involved in the buyout collusion that stack is so he gets shipped from a potential contender to a friggin joke of a team. If ager could block the trade he would to

Re: Report: Devean George blocks Kidd trade!
 
George is a idiot..They even said he was unhappy with his role on the Mavs ..He now gets a new start on a mid level team where he will get double the mins..now he cry's like a byatch and blocks the trade..Exactly,it's obvious now that his days in Dallas are numbered!But for sure this deal will get done..he's only one micro piece to the major deal.

wang4three 02-13-2008 11:00 PM

Re: Report: Devean George blocks Kidd trade!
 
Why the **** would they give a scrub player that clause?

kentatm 02-13-2008 11:00 PM

Re: Report: Devean George blocks Kidd trade!
 
I dont even really like this trade for the Mavs but this is an incredibly selfish and *****y move by George especially since he already CLEARLY stated all he cares about is PT to get a better contract next year when he demanded PT or a trade. He doesnt care about winning, the dude is a selfish money grubbing prick.

If I was the Mavs brass I would just sit his ass the rest of the year and let him fend for himself when he expires. What a complete *****.

But i think it boils down to ..these guys aren't in no category of a Jason Kidd,Kobe Bryant to make such outlandish crys or have that kinda contract..especially if your now even a mid level star in the league.

Re: Report: Devean George blocks Kidd trade!
 
every player wonders what they'll be remembered for after they're gone. Kobe has 81, Vince has the dunkcontest, AI has the Lue-step..............Devean George has this. We have just witnessed the peak of his career.
