    NBA Trade Deadline Thread

    Figured this could use it's own thread. Let's see what we have so far...

    -We're all aware of the T-Mac to Knicks deal "probable" deal.

    -Nate to the Celtics for Eddie House and J.R. Giddens. Also seems likely Knicks will be getting a 1st round pick.

    -Camby traded to the Blazers. Clippers receive Steve Blake, Travis Outlaw, and cash.
    http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=4918893

    -Numerous rumors involving Amare Stoudemire. Could go to Cleveland or Miami, but very well could end up staying in Phoenix for the remainder of the season.

    That's all I got right now. Anyone else hearing anything not listed above? I'm sure this will heat up later in the night and into tomorrow as the deadline is 3 pm.

    Knicks trade Darko Milicic to the T'Wolves for Brian Cardinal & cash considerations. Looks like the Knicks will waive Cardinal. This is just a financial move to save them some money with luxury tax.

    Marc Stein reporting that the Cavs have landed Antwan Jamison in a 3 team trade.

    http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=4922833

    Sources: Jamison goes to Cavs
    By Marc Stein
    ESPN.com


    Cleveland, Washington and the Los Angeles Clippers have agreed to a three-team deal that will land Antawn Jamison with the Cavaliers as LeBron James' new sidekick instead of Amare Stoudemire, according to NBA front-office sources.

    Sources told ESPN.com that the deal will also send Zydrunas Ilgauskas' $11.5 million expiring contract and a first-round draft pick from Cleveland to Washington.

    The deal also calls for the Wizards to receive Al Thornton from the Clippers, sources said, with L.A. getting forward Drew Gooden, whom Washington acquired in last week's trade with Dallas.

    Besides Jamison, Cleveland will also acquire Clippers guard Sebastian Telfair.

    After long-running trade talks with Washington and Phoenix, Cleveland opted for the Jamison deal, leaving the Miami Heat as the only known suitor for Stoudemire in advance of Thursday's 3 p.m. trading deadline.

    The Cavs have been chasing Jamison since last season and ultimately preferred this trade in part because they did not have to surrender blossoming young forward J.J. Hickson. The Suns were demanding Hickson along with Ilgauskas' expiring salary for Stoudemire.

    Washington relented on its insistence for Hickson because the trade brings more deck-clearing payroll and luxury-tax relief after last week's deal with Dallas that sent Caron Butler, Brendan Haywood and DeShawn Stevenson to Dallas.

    I kind of feel like Amare is going to stay put in Phoenix. For the rest of the season, that is.

    Knicks Trying To Finish T-Mac Deal, Trade For Tyrus
    Feb 17, 2010 10:40 PM EST


    On the eve of the trade deadline, Donnie Walsh continues working to pin down the final elements of an offer that will land Tracy McGrady and shed the contract of Jared Jeffries.

    Marc Stein of ESPN wrote late Wednesday that multiple sources expressed confidence that a trade to send McGrady to New York will ultimately be consummated.

    Simultaneously, Walsh is working to swing a trade with the Bulls centered around Tyrus Thomas and Al Harrington.

    Mike D'Antoni may be driving the Knicks' interest in Thomas. The coach is apparently enthralled with the idea of plugging the athletic talents of Thomas into his uptempo system.

    Chicago is unlikely to extend the qualifying offer to Thomas during the offseason should they not be able to trade him.

    I'd be all for that. Means Amare will be a free agent after he opts out this summer and the Knicks can potentially get him without having to give players or picks to Phoenix. Kerr doesn't want to do any favors for D'Antoni by giving him one of the best big men in the game.

    Just got this from the John Hollinger's chat on ESPN

    "Marc Stein just reported that three-way deal with Knicks is done -- TMac to Knicks, Hughes to Sac, Jeffries to Hou with 2012 first and right to swap in 2011. Landry, Dorsey to Sac, Martin to Hou, no word on Sergio. Looks like Hill stays in NY."

    Also Heat in talks to get Boozer..

    Bulls acquire Warrick, Alexander

    The Chicago Bulls made it official on Thursday by announcing they have traded John Salmons to the Milwaukee Bucks for the expiring contracts of Hakim Warrick and Joe Alexander.

    The Bucks also have the option of switching first-round picks in this year's draft, provided the Bulls' pick isn't in the top 10. The Bulls added second-round draft choices in 2011 and 2012.

    Warrick is a 6-9 power forward who is averaging 10.2 points and 4.4 rebounds. The Syracuse product was the No. 19 overall pick by the Memphis Grizzlies in 2005.

    Alexander, the eighth overall pick in 2008, has battled a hamstring injury this season.

    "We like the combination of our player talent, cap flexibility and our ability to improve our team this summer in the free agent market," Bulls general manager Gar Forman said in a statement. "This trade is another step in the process of building our team and getting better."

    Salmons has a $5.8 million player option for next season that the Bulls didn't want to deal with as they clear space to be a major player in free agency this summer. Salmons will fill in for injured shooting guard Michael Redd.

    "He's a good pro guard," Bucks coach Scott Skiles said of Salmons. "He's been a solid player for quite a while, and we feel like we still need to solidify one of our perimeter spots, especially with Michael out. So it made sense."

    The Associated Press contributed to this report.

    Source: Bulls trade Thomas to Bobcats

    The Chicago Bulls are trading Tyrus Thomas to the Charlotte Bobcats for Flip Murray, Acie Law and a protected first-round draft choice, pending league approval, according to a league source.


    Thomas will be a restricted free agent after this season. Thomas is averaging 8.8 points and 6.3 rebounds. Inconsistency has plagued Thomas, who has been an impact player at times with his athleticism and shot-blocking ability.

    Murray is averaging 9.9 points and 21.6 minutes while Law is averaging just 7.1 minutes per game. Both players have expiring contracts.

    The Bulls acquired two more expiring contracts earlier Thursday in a trade with the Milwaukee Bucks as they try to clear as much cap space as possible for this summer's free-agent class.

    Source: Jazz agree to trade Brewer

    By Chad Ford

    The Utah Jazz have agreed to trade Ronnie Brewer to the Memphis Grizzlies for a protected 2010 first-round pick, a source close to the situation told ESPN.com on Thursday.

    The deal gives the Grizzlies yet another athletic swingman and allows the Jazz to save money.

    Utah had a bit of a logjam at Brewer's position. His $2.7 million salary was essentially double that because the Jazz are over the luxury-tax threshold.

    Now these guys get about 2 years in the league before they have been traded 6 times. If your name isn't Kobe Lebron or Wade your pretty much available.

    When he was in college you could tell Warrick was going to be a tweener in the nba. I wasn't very high on Tyrus Thomas coming out of college and the Bulls definitely made a mistake with him.

    Why? Nate was never going to be on the Knicks next year and it's not like they're taking on any salary beyond this season. I'd have liked to get a pick out of the deal but whatever, no one was offering one.

    You serious? Please tell me you aren't.

    Because Nate was such a difference maker with the Knicks.
