    To the Love Trade: We're not getting him. You want a better offer? Gibson+Mirotic+2014 pick. Dragic+Morris+Frye+2 1st rounders. Barnes/Thompson+Green+Lee+Future First rounder. Shoot, they'd probably prefer the high Lakers pick. But Love will not be a Raptor. Sad reality of the situation.
    Gibson + Mirotic +2014 pick for Love. Illegal cap wise. Wolves would have to take on another couple contracts - actually, it's really hard to find a combination that would work. To make the salaries line up, you'd probably have to wait for the summer, amnesty Boozer, and do that deal. Of course, then the Wolves still need the cap room to be able to sign Mirotic, which might be hard to find (they certainly wouldn't have the room from your deal). And the Bulls need to make the pick for the Wolves well in advance. So Gibson, a late pick this year and a prospect who may or may not ever come over, and limited to no cap relief. Delightful.

    You think the Suns give up that much for Love? Good on you, but I'm sure the Suns fans are glad you aren't their GM.

    You think the Wolves want ANYTHING to do with Lee's contract? GSW can't send picks either.

      PG Lowry Vasquez DeColo

      If you were to roll the dice and choose not to pick up Amir's option and not use the mid level exception on Okafor or anyone else at 5.1M the Raps would be in a postion to offer a 4 year 48M deal to Greg Monroe. That slots Monroe as the starting PF with PPAT backing him up and Chuck Hayes remains at the back up centre. Price is no Amir - worth it ?

          Any one of Ross / Kyle Anderson / Vasquez

          I am all in on Monore if we can get him in without giving up more than Amir. I love Amir. I love the warrior in him but I am over the top on the upside of Monroe and how he fills a hole with a consistent and healthy low post player who we can draw up plays for.
