I thought the draft was tonight
Oops, thanks for posting the information.
I guess the most interesting aspect to me is the Celtics getting Ray Allen
Interesting because if he actually shows up and plays like he can, I think they just got a lot better. I'm kind of surprised the Celtics offloaded a high draft pick like that, but with Jefferson, Pierce and Allen they should
be an improved team. I wonder if they'll make more moves too.
The other side of that trade is the Sonics of course and that too is really interesting. Obviously they got Durant which is great for them. Jeff Green I guess is someone they wanted too, but the biggest question in my mind is what they'll now do with Rashard Lewis? He's a free agent and I really was expecting them to maybe try and sign and move him, but now with Allen gone, maybe not?
Did Noah fall further than expected? I thought he was being talked about as a top 5?
Atlanta's draft is interesting too. I was expecting them to make moves prior to the draft but maybe the plan is afterwards. Horford isn't that big a surprise pick really (at all?) but I hadn't heard of them having any interest in Law.
You're right about the Blazers Brian, I'm really surprised to see that trade. I was really expecting them to hold onto Randolph and have an imposing front court with Randolph and Oden/Durant. Frye is ok, but not quite Randolph.
The Jason Richardson deal is surprising too. I'd heard recently they were moving Monta Ellis instead, but I guess not, at least until maybe a Garnett trade?
And speaking of Garnett, is Boston more appealing now that Allen is there? Pierce/Allen/Garnett is lots of firepower (I presume Jefferson would be going the other way).
Phoenix? Hello? Phoenix?
