NBA trade mania!

Posted: February 25, 2011 in NBA

The Melo deal opened the floodgates.  Still unsure how Melo will fit into the Knicks’ offense.  He is an iso scoring player.  He doesn’t derive his scoring from the flow the offense.

The team he left behind (no Kirk Cameron!) has won two straight but they are different now.  Their offense is no longer stifled with a ball stopper.  They may not have the superstar they once did but they have a lot of good pieces to be a playoff contender.

If Mike Bibby wants to sign with a contender, he'll have to negotiate a buyout with the Wizards by Tuesday.

Then the Hawks sent Mike Bibby and  some pieces for Kirk Hinrich and Hilton Armstrong.  The Hawks were obviously looking for more of a pass first PG.

After that deal, Derron Williams moved to the East himself and became a member of the Nets.  The Nets deal was more for the future and in trying to become a free agent destination specifically for the free agent class of 2012, specifically D12.

Then after that Baron Davis was sent to the Cleveland and Mo Williams and Jamario Moon went to LaLa Land. Stank-0 was not sure that BDiddy’s huge contract could even be moved.  He signed a 5 year deal and still has 2 years left on it.  The Cavs are in the process of cleanin house and they need to.

Then Gerald Wallace was sent to Portland and that might have been the underrated trade of the deadline.

The final move might be the most important.  Kendrick Perkins, Nate Robinson, and Nazr Mohammed were shipped to OKC in exchange for Jeff Green and Nenad Krstic.

Stank-0 is of the opinion that the move allowed the rest of the East to gain on the Celtics.  The frontline is now dependent upon the two O’Neals, one of which hasn’t played at all this year and the other is a shell of a shell of his former self.
