I hear its Denver, Portland, Philly.

Philly gets Magloire, Joe Smith and a first round pick. Both players are expirers.

^So than Portland is taking the gamble on Nene? He can play, but with his injury issues and contract I am suprised.

Hold it. Denver has 2 picks to offer. If Philly only gets 1, than I would assume the other goes to Portland, as "incentive" to take on Nene.

Nene can really play btw. Someone earier in this thread compared him to Dalembert and said he has no bball IQ...that is not true at all. He is a smart player, he really is. Strong even for an NBA player. Pretty good shot form 20 feet and in. Has a "feel" for the game Daembert does not.

AI isn't an All-Star, he is a street baller who dominates the team's offensive sets when he plays. There is a reason why players disappeared when they went to Philly. Denver already has an amazing offense, so why would they want to bring in Iverson?

If anything it will kill JR Smith's development, and I actually though he looked like he might be getting somewhere. It will also limit the effectiveness of Andre Miller.

Plus, Denver needs another guy who can create shots. No doubt about it.

It is a good thing to have Gasol locked up for 5 years. What FA is going to realistically hit the market that matches up to Gasol in todays NBA where rookie deals are 99% of the time extended?

The best player in this years FA class is Vince Carter and I doubt that there is a single GM in the league that would rather pair Melo with Vince rather than with Gasol.

Miller | JR Smith | Melo | Gasol | Camby

If Denver could ever pull that off they would be immediate top 5 contenders.

Miles, the debate over a player signed long-term vs. a player signed short-term is very subjective, and constanty fluctuates.

Denver's payroll could not absorb a max-level deal like Pau's for 5 years, other teams may be able to. Pau the player would fit nicely with the Nugs, but not with his contract. With so many long-term deals already in place, Denver would have absolutely no interest in trading for AI if his contract ran 5 more years.

All depends on the situation.

Sixers get 2 first round picks from Denver, Joe Smith or Najera, Kleiza or Hodge, and Andre Miller along with Magloire from Portland

Portland gets Nene and cash I think

Denver gets A.I.

That doesn't sound right. You're saying BOTH Nene and Dre Miller will be shipped out?

And I can't imagine Portland swapping Magloire for Nene without at least a first-rounder.

If they are going to take back expirers, then why not a deal involving Sacramento (since Bibby is going to opt out)?

I guess maybe they want to re-sign Magliore at the end of this season if he plays well. Or maybe they think he can help them get into the playoffs this year. Or maybe they will try to trade him again before the end of the season.

If they get Smith, I see a buyout happening quickly, to free up some cash and to let him go play somewhere else (hello Los Angeles Lakers).
