Report: 76ers acquire Cole, McGee, Pittman, and 2nd round pick


Feb. 18, 2012

Well a trade has finally happened since the hiring of Allen Iverson. And it wasn't just one trade, it was two in the same night. The Philadelphia 76ers got Norris Cole and Dexter Pittman in exchange for Gary Jackson and Jodie Meeks. They also have grabbed JaVale McGee from Denver for Nikola Vucevic.

Image


What Does this mean?


What it means that Philadelphia's bench is going to be better overall. They have another fast, young, scoring point guard that is willing to pass paired with Lou Williams who is more of a shooting guard than a point guard. They also get two more big men to add to their flurry of guys to clog the middle. With the addition of McGee and Pittman, the Sixers now have a total of six big men to man the middle. And with McGee, he should be able to help crash boards and score well.

Analysis:


To get Norris Cole and Dextar Pittman, the 76ers gave up Jodie Meeks and Gary Jackson. Jackson surely will not be missed, he played little, and did very little when it came to offense or defense, so it is a win for Philadelphia. With Meeks, he didn't have that many minutes, but that gives the Miami Heat another three points scoring option. But also takes away one of their own, so Leandro Barbosa will now have to carry more weight to get big shots. I also don't see Dexter Pittman playing that much. Right now the 76ers have too much size to give him any playtime at the moment, but we'll see.

In the trade with Denver. All Philadelphia gave up was Nikola Vucevic for JaVale McGee and a second round draft pick. I'll talk about the draft pick first. Yes, it is a second round pick, but this year's draft is extremely deep. Seeing how Denver is doing, they could grab wingman Dione Waiters from Syracuse. Or whoever else is available on draft night. What is surprising is that the Denver front office seems to covet Vucevic. Who, frankly, isn't that good. And to give up McGee, who is much better, and a pick, they must see something in him the coach Doug Collins didn't.


McGee was coming off of a blacktop game he was playing alongside Vucevic when he heard the news. "I was moved to Philly? Really? Wow, that was unexpected I would have to say. I mean it is my third team in two years so it is kind of disappointing. I do hope to make a statement there and call that place my home." Vucevic was unavailable for questions.

Norris Cole was actually already outside of Wells Fargo center by the time I found him. He told me, "Yeah, I'm really excited to be hear, you know? This team is great, I was traded early in my career but I was and will be taught by great players and coaches like Dwayne Wade and Doug Collins. This is an extremely exciting moment for me and I can't wait to suit up next week."

Houston allows 72 points inside en route to loss
No defense tonight


AP- Feb. 22, 2012| Houston, TX

Image

Break out the alternates and capture the fast breaks was the only thing on Philly's mind today. They were able to sweep this series after beating Houston back in November. This time they were able to hand out a blowout.

Let's start with Houston's defense, non-existent. Evan Turner may have had five turnovers tonight but the Rockets' shot defense was horrid. They allowed a total of seventy two points inside the paint alone and allowed the 76ers to shoot almost 60% from the field. All game they were able to score, they just couldn't stop Philadelphia from scoring their own.

A key performance came from JaVale McGee, only his second game as a Philadelphia 76er, he was able to get his first double-double with that jersey on. He collected eleven rebounds as well as getting nineteen points. Philadelphia used the pick and roll a lot in order for him to get easy buckets inside and I suspect the method will continue all the way to the end of the season. Norris Cole was also able to come off the bench and score twelve points himself in just 12 minutes.
Image

This is the last game for the Philadelphia 76ers until the trade deadline passes and the All-Star break finally begins with the Rookie-Sophomore challenge. Turner is starting for the the Sophomores as well as coming off the bench in the All-Star game. Quick stardom for the guard.

POTG: Evan Turner

35 points, 2 rebounds, 6 assists, 2 steals, 2 blocks

'Ours to lose'
Rookies come out with win against second year players


AP- Orlando, FL| Feb. 24. 2012

Image

phpBB [video]



The 2011-2012 Rookie class beat out the 2010-2011 Rookie class this year in a score of 79-68, the lowest score of this game. The reason the score was so low this year is that there was suffocating defense played on both sides of the ball. at the half, neither team was shooting over 50% and neither team had more than fifty points, the norm on All-Star weekend.

phpBB [video]


Some impressive performances came out of Brandon Knight and Kemba Walker who combined for just 29 points together but put things together while on the court to help with the guard situation since Kyrie Irving, who ended with just five points struggled. Walker played the point for most of the second half while Knight was at the wing. Both were able to turn in their good performances in the second half and Kemba made a good case to be the game's MVP.

Image


The final two quarters is when the Rookies told themselves, "This is our game." They pushed their shooting percentage to fifty percent, went on multiple runs, and never looked back. The game pretty much became a highlight reel for them as the were able to escape with a win for their draft class.

phpBB [video]


"I'm not mad at myself," Evan Turner told reports after the game. "We may not have won, but we pretty much took that game to pretty far lengths. Leading at the half, we started to get cocky I guess and we just let it go. I'm more ready for the All-Star game more than anything though, so that should be pretty exciting."

"Man we turned that thing out!" Kemba Walker told Marv Albert after the game. "Late in the game, we made it ours to lose, so I'm pretty happy about how it turned out. I can't wait to see who the MVP is though."

We're at the break

Postby SuperHueyNewton on Tue Dec 18, 2012 12:24 pm

Man All-Star weekend is great! Almost everyone is treated like royalty, five star hotels. First class flights to Orlando, you get to see some of your closest friends. This is the weekend of the NBA! Even Huey Newton was given special treatment. GMs from around the league who didn't even have players attending some of the events were still treated with the utmost respect when they arrived as well.

Huey was back in his hotel room at the Buena Vista Palace after the three-point contest when he got a visit from some surprising figures. He opened his door to see Joshua Harris followed by Michael Jordan waltz straight into the room.

Joshua Harris: Hey Huey! Having a good time?

Huey Newton: Yo Mr. Harris, MJ! Cool to see you guys show up, is the league paying for your stay here too?

Michael Jordan: Of course not! We own NBA teams, we just booked our own rooms here. We wanted to talk to you about some things really quick, if you don't mind.

Newton: All right come on in.

They all walked into the main interior and crashed on the couch to turn on the flat-screen 60 inch Samsung to ESPN, which was still recapping the three point contest.

Jordan: I thought for sure Anthony Morrow was going to win the contest. It was a nice testament wearing that old-school Nets jersey.

Harris: If I was a betting man, my money would have been on Kevin Love the whole time.

Newton: You know you're lying, you were Ryan Anderson the whole way because of his shooting percentage. Anyhow, what did you guys want to talk about?

Jordan: It's gotta be about the shoes.

Newton: Come again?

Jordan: Well since Evan Turner has a shoe deal with Nike, I wanted to let him design his own pair of custom Jordans for the game. Doesn't matter what shoe, he could go Air Force Ones or CP3 IVs for all I care.

Newton: Well why are you talking to me? Why haven't you asked ET about this?

Harris: Turner has been partying since the Rookie challenge, we haven't been able to find him.

Newton starts to think about this while, like on cue, SportsCenter starts to talk about the shoes they'll expect to see in a day and a half. Jordan and Harris are listening closely to the program and almost forgets about Huey before he finally speaks.

Newton: Well since we're at the break. Why not get the fans involved with this? Put it on NBA.com, Bobcats.com, 76ers.com. Let's get the fans into it.

Jordan: I like that idea, maybe we'll give the winner a pair of their own after they design 'em. That's a pretty good suggestion.

Harris: Well I'll try to contact E.T. again, see if he's up for such a thing. In the mean time, we'll get on this competition. See who the lucky winner is.

Both men leave Newton alone with his big-screen TV. He turns the channel to Cartoon Network which is now playing Adult Swim's Robot Chicken.

Newton: Not a bad idea if I do say so myself

Competition Time!

Postby SuperHueyNewton on Tue Dec 18, 2012 12:37 pm

Alright here we go.
Image

Its competition time and I'm letting you guys know a few things. It is still not too late to apply for the draft first off. Second, you'll have to break out your old copy of 2K12 that is collecting dust. My contest is to see who can design the best Jordan's for the All-Star game to go on Evan Turner's feet. The winner will get his/her own article written about their shoe in particular and the winner will also be able to bump up three of their attributes by five points.

Whatever design you have. Just post it hear and write what colors were used to make it and what shoe you used. If you downloaded a shoe to create the Jordan, paste the link too. Runner-ups will just have their shoe on any player I choose and allowed to bump up just one attribute by just three points.

Again here are the rules:
    Jordan must be in NBA 2K12
    If shoe is downloaded, paste link in post
    Must post photo of shoe on this forum
    Deadline is Christmas day
    Must specify what Jordan you are using

That is it, hopefully I'll have a good turn out from this and I hope to see some creativity. Winners will be announced a day after Christmas.

It's the Kicks!

It's The Kicks! Pt. 1
We're taking a look at some of the shoes we expect to see at this year's All-Star Game


It's about that time. Players take out their signature shoes and put a ridiculous color palette on them for the famous All-Star game. Some players have let the fans know what shoe their going to be wearing. Lets take a look at the ones we know about now. We will see the West in part 2 This list will primarily go by the lineups listed on NBA.com's website.

First up East:

Shooting Guard: Dwayne Wade
Image

D-Wade staying loyal keeping the Heat's colorway on his shoes. Not much to talk about this one, coming out with his Jordan Fly Wade.

Small Forward: Carmelo Anthony
Image

Melo wearing his M8s but made them look completely confusing putting blue and gold on them. Got to give hime credit for being unique with this shoe though.

Power Forward: Josh Smith
Image

Josh Smith's crazy lights look like the Mcdonalds sign with blue paint thrown at it. Not sure where the yellow came from on this shoe either. It looks gross really.

Center: Dwight Howard
Image

Dwight staying loyal also using his Magic colorway. Since the game is being hosted by his team, the shoe just seems right being the only Magic player to make the game.


Backup Point Guard: Deron Williams
Image

D-Will put the old Nets colors on his shoes to represent the old New Jersey/York Nets of the the past.

Backup Shooting Guard: Evan Turner
Image

D-Wade's rival Evan Turner pulled out red white and blue Air force ones to wear for this event. Not sure how long it took to come up with the colors, seconds maybe?

Backup Small Forward: Wilson Chandler
Image

Wilson Chandler comes out with a shoe representing the east, with again, yellow out of no where. Did the players collaborate when they designed their shoes?

Backup Power Forward: Antawn Jamison

Image

Jamison letting everyone know that he plays for the one and only Cleveland Cavaliers. This gold goes with his shoes because we know he already plays for the Cavs. Not the Knicks, nor the 76ers.

Backup Center:Andrea Bargnani
Image

Andrea Bargnani comes out with T-Macs. T-MACS! I don't even know how he got his hands on this shoe but it is a good choice being the first Raptor to make it to the show for a long while.

Backup Small Forward: LeBron James
Image

LBJ with shoes that look like they are representing the West, but nonetheless they look pretty cool.

Backup Shooting Guard: Monta Ellis
Image

Monta sporting mostly blue kicks wanting people to know he is proud to be in the game and part of the East.

Its the kicks! Pt 2
No we look at the Western kicks


Welcome back! We saw some puzzling shoes and impressing shoes from the East. Now we're looking at their Western adversaries and their shoes.

Point Guard: Russel Westbrook
Image

Russel throwing orange and red on his shoes. The colors of the Western conference. This shoe completely works for the team he's gearing up for.

Shooting Guard: Kobe Bryant
Image

Kobe's shoes look like there's a parade in session on them. These shoes look fun and bright, perfect for All-Star weekend.

Small Forward: Kevin Durant
Image

The second starter coming from Oklahoma City. Durant's shoes look sleek with the metal but it is slightly confusing to put that teal on the shoe since it is really unnecessary. Other than that, good shoe.

Power Forward: Andre Iguodala
Image

Iggy staying loyal to his Nuggets squad putting blue and gold on his Kobe III shoes.

Center: Tim Duncan
Image

One of the three Spurs to make the team, Tim Duncan sporting his on pair of adiPowers with red and black on the three stripes. Another Good shoe for the Western Conference.

Backup Point Guard: Stephen Curry
Image

Steph Curry's shoes look nice, going with the red and orange going along the colors of the West. This type of coloring is becoming a sort of a trend for the Western players, it isn't a bad idea though.

Backup Shooting Guard: Manu Ginobili
Image

Two of the three Spurs to make the team. Manu's shoes look like a McDonald's sign too. This shoe just looks funny to be trying to wear out in public let alone the All-Star game, well its his choice anyway.

Backup Small Forward: Stephen Jackson
Image

The third and final Spur to make the team. Jackson chose to make his Jordan's completely red. It isn't unsightly either. I like to see that he is proud to be a part of his first All-Star game in his career.

Backup Point Guard: Chris Paul
Image

Chris Paul, the only other Clipper to make it looks great with his black and white shoes. He wore these on his Christmas day game and it is still pretty nice to see these shoes to come out again.

Backup Point Guard: Ramon Sessions
Image

I have many words to say about this shoe. What was Sessions thinking? These shoes look gross, stupid, idiotic. Wait, that means the same thing. Anyway, why did he combine red with purple? This isn't a shoe I would be proud to wear at all.

Well everyone that is all the All-Star shoes we will be privileged to seeing this year. Several look good, and several look bad, the two worse in my opinion are Josh Smith's shoe and Roman Sessions' shoe. That is it for me. I am Ernie Simms for ESPN, see you again later.

All-Star Scores
Both Teams got high in the triple digits in this years' All-star game



AP- Orlando, FL| Feb. 26, 2012

Image

This years' All-Star game didn't fail to impress the fans going well into the one hundreds scoring range before the final buzzer. It was an exciting game filled with a wealth of highlights.
phpBB [video]

In this year's game, many expected Dwayne Wade and Kobe Bryant to battle it out for the majority of the game. Only problem was, Wade couldn't stay consistent against Kobe's D. So he was benched by Eastern Head Coach Doug Collins and replaced with MVP hopeful Evan Turner. Turner came into the second quarter full of energy, but full of turnovers also, I will address that soon. He dished out four of his seven assist and quickly caught up with Kobe in points and helped keep Kobe contained while he was in. Turner was certainly hoping to one-up Kobe again, he did just that by getting another win on him.

Carmelo Anthony was not to be ignored most of the game either, he dropped in 25 points of his own, hitting five threes in the process. Kevin Durant wanted in on the action Melo was getting so he also turned in 24 points and hitting his own 3 three pointers. KD, Kobe, Melo, and E.T. were the games highest scorers all night, but they also struggled in a different department.

In the All-Star game, you would surely hope to see a lot of thrown Alley-Oops, and that is what happened. But not all of them were able to connect, both teams struggled with turnovers with a combined amount of 48 turnovers, mostly coming from badly timed alley-oops. Kobe ended up getting three steals and Evan Turner ended up getting six steals from these ill-thrown lobs.

phpBB [video]


The second half was just as high paced, that was when Melo and Turner just went crazy from three hitting many in a row without missing. It helped cushion the lead for the East and they road it all the Way to the final quarter. Evan Turner still turning in a magnificent forth, playing all of it and dishing out his final two assists, four of his nine rebounds, and nabbing the ball twice. This was a dreamlike opportunity for the second-year player, and he took it for all of its worth.

Kobe Bryant had nothing but nice things to say about Turner. "The kid's holding his own in this league now. He was able to out-do me again and took that win from us. He'll be a special player in this league no doubt."

Doug Collins also had a few statements. "The battle between Turner and Kobe was one to remember, these guys are great players and they demonstrated that so easily by going bonkers and getting more than thirty points each. I'm proud to be a part of the game this year."

The lights finally go down, the stages put up, fan festivities are finally over. All-Star weekend takes a break until next year where it will be located in Houston. This has been a great weekend with Kevin Love taking the Three-Point Crown, Jeremy Evans, the Dunk Maestro. The Rookies beating out the Sophomores. And the East getting one over the West. I can't wait for the excitement to return, talk to you later sports fans.

Western MVP:

Twitter sound off
We're taking a look at a few tweets from last night's All-Star game


Just a day after the All-Star game, fans were left in awe after an amazing breakout performance by Evan Turner that nearly gave him a triple double in the All-Star game coming off the bench. Now, I'm going to show you some tweets we saw during the game.

Image



Jameer Nelson posting his excitement for his fellow Magic player wishing him and his teammates luck. Dwight Howard, though is causing problems in Orlando asking, then giving up, then asking, then giving up with trade request this year. It is nice to see that Jameer is still routing for one of his pals.

Image


STAT started to state his displease with the lack of D from the West. No, no he wasn't he was excited for swingman Carmelo Anthony who wasn't resting all night against his western counterparts.

Image


Lou Will shouting out Evan Turner, who played like a man on a mission against the West top players. Even rubbing it in Kobe Bryant's face too.

Image


Gallinari, an Eastern player, defended some Western players who were doing well, but just weren't given sufficient amount of help from the Superstars supporting them.

Image

ESPN laying down some fact that only viewers not watching the game would understand. Of course they were the only two with more than fifteen points heading into the final quarter. They were the only two hitting.

That's it for now, tune in for Philadelphia's next game which is in the Palace of Auburn Hills in Detroit for their next Eastern Conference battle.

I'm sorry, I am going to have to finish this story because I no longer find 2K12 any fun anymore. I'll keep the draft information people have sent me if I ever begin a new association story, but this one is finished. It did start off as fun, but 2K12 just doesn't seem as good as 11 or 13. If I do pick up a new 2K on PC again, I will surely start another story.


Ignore what you see above! This is continuing!!!

Chapter 9: New beginning

Wow what a heck of a year:

Kyrie Irving won the Rookie of the Year by a landslide; Mike Conley took home the Sixth man of the year being reliable as the energy man for Brooklyn; Josh Smith DOMINATED inside and was handed the Defensive player of the year award; E.T. brought home the Most Improved Player award and the MVP and Doug took the Coach of the year award also; Kobe was even able to tie with M.J., getting his sixth ring in a row against the Celtics.

But above all else. I got fired.

It wasn't for under performance at all. The 76ers had one of the best records in the East. The only reason I was fired is because Josh Harris finally got what he wanted and had me booted after a we made it all the way to the Eastern Conference finals and finally got booted out by the Boston Celtics. I stormed out of that building screaming out every curse word I knew. How could the fire me? I built this team that went this far!

Doesn't matter though. As soon as the offseason began, teams started blasting my pocket loud for my services. I tracked it down all the way down to the Suns and the Raptors. Both teams, of course have a long way to go in the rebuilding perspective, both teams finished close to the bottom of their conferences. I met up with the Raptors first, then headed for my meeting out in Phoenix. Only catch though? Guess who called telling me he was also up for the assistant general manager job.

A.I.: Yo, Huey! Guess who got hired as the assistant gm for the Phoenix Suns!?

Huey: Oh no...

A.I.: What? Anyway, it was me man! Aren't you coming in the take the gm job?

Huey: Of course! As long as you don't have as much power as you did in Philly!

A.I.: Listen man, I had as much power as you did in Philly, this team though, I don't have the faith of the owners on me so I won't be given anywhere close to as much power as before.

Huey: Then consider this team at the top of my list! I'll be in Arizona soon.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Signing the papers were simple enough, "Ensure this team is successful, yada yada yada." Then everything was done. The hard parts hadn't even gotten close to difficult yet, except when the owner, Robert Sarver started asking questions.

Sarver: So the draft is fast approaching, what do you plan on doing first?

My first instinct would have been to say, "The hell I look like, a genie? -Explicit- if I know, but of course I thought of something that I hope will save me.

Huey: Well first, we have to get some of the big contracts, like Nash off the books, if we want to make ANY moves this offseason.

Sarver: You're really considering moving Nash?

Huey: Of course, you seriously think I'm gonna let that old guy sit on the bench and take up valuable amounts of money?

Sarver: That's exactly what I was trying to preach to the last GM we had, but noooo. Nash is just too valuable, more valuable to this team. Just listen to me Huey, the move better be good, better draw headlines, and better help us in the upcoming years, you understand?

Huey: Got it boss, ready for the lottery?

The old goon happily smiled at me

Sarver: Hope we roll Perkins

The Phoenix Suns, once a great team in the West who couldn't get over the hump in the West, appeared to have a just severe breakdown last season going 26-56 and giving them the second worst record in the West. So after the recent hiring of new general manager Huey Newton, what is the future of this team? Many players are close to free agency like Michael Redd. One of the main things fans are concerned about is All-Star point guard, Steve Nash.

Nash averaged about 17.9 PPG and about 7.8 APG in 33.7 MPG. Of course at his old age, Nash won't be able to perform so well in the near future, and with such a stacked draft, Nash is tradeable at this point. With basically no team in the top five lottery picks needing a point guard, the Suns may have to settle. Here are the odds for every team inside the lottery:

Image


Rolling the first or second pick for the Suns would be a huge lift for the Suns by potentially drafting Euroleague Champion Derrick Perkins and NCAA Champion Anthony Davis. Davis would be a better fit for the Suns as their Power Forward spot is weak. Markieff Morris can stretch the floor well, but he really isn't starting material. Davis could more than make up for that with his arm length, shot blocking, and shooting giving him such an advantage.

Of course after seeing the odds, we are presented with the results of the draft. Here they are, followed by the main results:
Image
Image


The results remained close to exactly the same,with the Raptors staying at #3 and the Kings rolling the #1 overall pick. Phoenix swapped places with the Bucks to almost guaranteeing them drafting Anthony Davis. So whats next? I expect Nash to be traded soon for another draft pick, or a young point, Anthony Davis to be taken second overall, and the Suns to actually make some noise in free agency with names coming off the books and several trade rumors.

Just a day after the lottery, Huey newton has made in known early that a Nash trade is a matter of "when" then "If" after a three team trade between the New Orleans Hornets and Houston Rockets.
Image


Phoenix dumps bust Robin Lopez to New Orleans and Wesley Johnson to Houston for Goran Dragic coming out of Houston. The Rockets also received Mexican big man Gustovo Ayon. Nash certainly can not hope to call himself a Sun for much longer, no matter how loyal he may be. Nash also tweeted out his "glee" for the arriving Dragic:
Image

Phoenix receives:

Points Guard Goran Dragic

New Orleans receives:
Center Robin Lopez


Houston receives:
Center Gustavo Ayon
Wesley Johnson


It has also been announced that former head coach Mike Woodson has been interviewed for the Suns head coaching job which is currently open. More on that later though.

Huey Newton wants his presence felt in Phoenix after the recent signing of Mike Woodson as the Suns' new head coach

Image

Woodson, who is known as a defensive guru, will probably slow the temp of the Suns down and have them focus more on rebounds and defense. Woodson once held a three year stint in Atlanta getting to the playoffs each time but still not getting past the second round and was let go after so many failures. In Phoenix though, he isn't here to win a championship he's here to lead a young team for the future and signed a lengthy four year contract.

Hopefully he can turn things around here, not the same story as the Hawks

Should We Expect Them Back?

Postby SuperHueyNewton on Sun Feb 17, 2013 5:07 am

With four players of the eleven remaining on the Phoenix Suns roster, how many should we expect to be back in the desert? Huey Newton has already said, " don't get your hopes up" Sebastian Telfaire and Shannon Brown have both expressed that they will both test free agency and Newton doesn't expect to go back after them after they leave their facility.

Michael Redd could be the only realistic player to return, the shooting guard position is bleak with just Avery Bradely being the only player under contract on the team. O'Neal will likely not return because of the advanced age of the player at this point. He maybe will not receive any calls from the Phoenix front office until after the draft. That is when Phoenix expects to make any moves for their other than the Nash trade "when" it happens.

NBA2K has finally released their 2012 mock draft on nba2kmags.com. Here is their idea below:

Image
Image
Image
Image


We're able to see who goes when, but not where because 2K's order is way out of wack, Sacramento has first overall, followed by Phoenix, the rest is also out of order for no reason should be dissected any longer. According to 2K though, Derrick Perkins is actually below Anthony Davis by one pick. Perkins was expected by everyone basically around the world that he was #1 overall worthy. I'm going to call 2K on this one and say that their just wrong. Derrick Perkins is going first no matter what and most likely will be starting at that moment.

Steve Nash's name has also been thrown everywhere around the NBA. Almost two weeks after the Dragic trade teams are still calling in looking for a way to take the 38 year-old guard from Phoenix. It seems Newton is listening and has been trying to construct a deal to send Nash where he wants, and still get something in return. Toronto, the Lakers, Grizzlies, Hornets, and Hakws seem to be all apart of Nash's wishlist and Newton has been trying his best to construct a trade to benefit the Suns and Nash.
It appears Nash is being cool about all of this and hasn't spoken at all to the press about any annoyance with his team trying to trade him like in previous years. Nash knows his home won't be in Phoenix for much longer and expects it to be in another city where he makes an impact soon.

One of those "Post this, leave this, hope someone responds after a few days" Type of situation for me. I have formulated two trades to move Nash to Memphis or Atlanta since Mike Conley is in Brooklyn and I'm trying to get another high draft pick in this draft. Here is the first one:

Here is the one for ATL:

But finding a place to trade him has been extremely hard though! I'd rather give Nash to a place where he'll start and get a high draftee because this draft is stuffed to the brim.

Rosque wrote:Do the first trade. You get 3rd overall and you can draft Lillard.. if he's in this class anyway.. If not.. Take my boy Petrović :D


No Lillard is not in this draft. Now I have to put him, Chris Smith, and Nerlens Noel in the next draft class to have a few top prospects for next season. Also, Petrovic wouldn't be a bad idea really, he could backup Drazen, or come off the bench with Bradely if I get a SG in this offseason. I really want to go after Eric Gordon, since the Suns really gave him a max deal in real life. I would really love grabbing him in free agency, having Bradely back him up, and then he could be my new leading scorer.

The trade to send Nash out of Phoenix finally happened today as he will now be known as a Memphis Grizzly. It was another three team deal that gave the Suns the #3 overall pick from the Raptors. Andrea Bargnani was sent to Memphis also in exchange for Rudy Gay. Barg will likely have to start at SF with Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol signing extensions. This trade is making headlines all over the country with Twitter exploding and ESPN having numerous reporters having stories over it.

Toronto basically made out like bandits after getting Gay who is already restructuring his contract to aid the team in this years offseason to try and make moves.


Phoenix receives:
Raptors 1st round draft pick
Power Forward Darrell Arthur

Toronto receives:
Power Forward Channing Frye
Small Forward Rudy Gay

Memphis receives:
Point Guard Jerryd Bayless
Center Andrea Bargnani
Point Guard Steve Nash

Pre-Draft Party!

Postby SuperHueyNewton on Tue Feb 19, 2013 7:41 am

Two week long party. That's how we're describing it anyway. From workouts to the draft, the staff here in Phoenix is treating everyday as a party, and why not? Our future is looking very good in the near future. Michael Redd is still here since we're still discussing a contract proposal with him and Jermaine O'Neal doesn't want to leave until he has a contract offered to him. Does he really need to ruin my party before it begins?

Huey Newton: Ugh, what do you want Jermaine?

Jermaine O'Neal: You know exactly what I'm here for Huey.

Newton: This really isn't the time for this, I need to get with the scouts on who we're going to choose to work with this week.

Jermaine: I know, and I'm all for that, I just want to be a part of this team. I want to be the veteran presence the young kids you're preparing to get. No one else on this team, besides Michael has played as long as me.

Newton: We don't want to hand you a contract because we fear you won't be able to live up to it. How many years do you think you have on your old body?

Jermaine: You offered Mike a two year deal, right?

Newton: You're correct, but what are you getting at?

Jermaine: I think I still have at least three years before my time is said and done, I may not be the same impact player as I used to be, but I can still help for sure in the long run teaching some of these guys.

Newton: You really believe you have three years to play? I doubt you'll be able to go through next season without a major injury hindering you.

Jermaine: Come on, Shannon and Sebastian are leaving by their own will, why is it that I have to beg for a contract?

Before I could answer, on queue as usual, Mr. Iverson stepped in and wanted to put his own idea on the matter.

Iverson: How come there isn't a contract on your desk yet?

Jermaine began to start beaming, I had to resist as hard as I could to not lock eyes with him.

Newton: What do you mean Iverson? Last I checked, I am the one calling shots, why should we keep him?

Iverson: Becuase one, Bob wants you to keep him. He rarely played bad during the minutes he had to. Two, he is a locker room presence. We've got a lot of young guys here and some young guys coming in, he is heavily needed.

Newton: Argh, all right. Two years, no more than four million. As soon as you have a long term injury, you're cut.

Jermaine: Well you keep getting a tight trainer staff, expect me to stay.

We hammer out the rest of the details there, he can't sign it yet, only give a verbal agreement according to NBA rules. A 2 year $3.8M contract. If he does really get hurt, we can just send him packing. O'Neal actually got out after that, who would have known? After I see his shoulder slide past the door frame, I turned to Iverson.

Newton: Back to important topics, who due we have scheduled for Sunday and for what exercise?

Iverson pulled out a black iPhone 5 and I waited for him to answer. The dim light popping off the screen, he seemed to be looking at several time schedules at once.

Iverson: Okay for Sunday and Monday we have two shootarounds scheduled for Drazen Petrovic and late draft announcement Chris Smith from Louisville.

Newton: Ahh, J.R. Smith's brother, he looked good this year. Wonder what took so long for him to announce for the draft. Petrovic, that name rings a bell, didn't he play for the Nets once?

Iverson: Yes, I wonder why he took so long too, and No. There was a Petrovic that played for the Nets at one point, I think this Petrovic might be his nephew or something along those lines.

Newton: He can play the point also?

Iverson: Yes, he did that from time to time in Croatia, I watched a few of his games in person. I must say, this kid looks impressive.

Newton: Yeah, we may take him after Anthony, Chris in the second round, if he's available.

Iverson: You're committing early, we need to at least see what we see out of these guys first.

Newton: Ha. You're right, how about Tuesday?

Iverson: Tuesday, one on one with Anthony against someone you want to invite out from free agency.

Newton: I can do that? Hm... Put him up against Kris Humphries, Wednesday?

Iverson: Wednesday we have a five on five between the top picks of the draft, Thursday, Terrence Ross and Jared Sullinger against and Markieff.

Newton: Why Markieff? Why not Darell? We just got him, see what he can too in order to decide what we do with him.

Iverson: All right, will change. Friday, another one on one between J.J. Sparks and Goran.

Newton: Wait, who is this Sparks person?

Iverson: A player with speed and handles, lethal from the line too but mostly nothing else.

Newton: Acceptable, at least we're looking at guards. And Saturday?

Iverson: At the end of the week we have a two on two with Austin Rivers and Tyler Zeller against Avery and Markieff.

Newton: We can finally get this party started. Fire up the microwave and fill the water jug with soda, lets go!

At the moment getting Petrovic, Davis, and signing basically any big names is my highest priority, Gerald Wallace is in the free agency, Thad Young, Eric Gordon, Javale McGee. This free agency is very good. Right now, I'm playing through my workouts

Only hours before the NBA Draft finally occurs the hype for Phoenix is so thick, you can cut it with a knife. We already know who is to be taken first and second overall. Question is though, who is going to be taken after Anthony Davis?
Image


Phoenix is expected to take Croatian guard Drazen Petrovic, but don't want to use such a high pick on him and would rather it be around five to ten. An in-draft trade could occur so that Phoenix moves slightly back take Petrovic. After Petrovic, who can we expect to be taken next? Reports say that the Suns have shown heavy interest in Louisville Guard, Chris Smith, the younger brother of J.R. Smith.

Chris Smith has an immeasurable amount of potential, that is the main reason the Suns have expressed so much interest in him. There is a concern that there will be simply too many guards on the team after drafting Drazen Petrovic. A backup to Goran Dragic isn't a bad idea, but there are simply more pressing needs for the Suns. A Center for example, there aren't many in-your-face Centers after Meyers Leanard, but there is talent that can be dug up in players like Oscar Cousins, the cousin of... well DeMarcus Cousins. He is decent on the defensive side and good and catching rebounds, but not much else. He attended Kent. State, so is under everyone's radar, but still expected to get drafted.

They could also get a backup for Jared Dudley, seeing how Josh Childress doesn't appear to be a player execpected to play that often in Woodson's defensive schemes. The Suns could try for Jeffery Taylor, who is a first round talent, but is still expected to go to the second round of the draft. Phoenix could possibly be targeting Syracuse swingman Kris Joseph, who isn't a very dead-eye shooting talent, but can get on a roll fairly quickly if given the chance.

Only things left to do is spectate, guess, and wait as the 2012 NBA Draft quickly approaches!

Draft Night!

Postby SuperHueyNewton on Sat Feb 23, 2013 9:14 am

This year's draft has finally come and gone with several pieces falling where they were intended and some being taken up earlier than perceived. Let's take a look at the First Round and its trades:

Image
Image
Image
Image


Before taking anyone in this year's draft, Phoenix traded their third pick, as expected, to Cleveland for their fifth overall pick and thirty fifth overall pick. Cleveland then proceeded to take Perry Jones and two picks later, Drazen Petrovic was selected with the fifth overall pick.

Just two more picks later, the seventh overall and Trevor Ariza were shipped to Brooklyn, and in return, New Orleans received disgruntled guard Michael Conley and Marshon Brooks. Michael Conley won the Sixth Man of the year award but Brooklyn couldn't keep him happy after obtaining him from Memphis for Gerald Wallace, they decided to go a new direction by acquiring struggling forward, Trevor Ariza. Brooklyn then took Terrence Ross with the seventh overall pick.

And before the fifteenth pick was finalized, Norris Cole was traded to Houston for Luis Scola, alleviating cap space for Houston, but at the cost of their pick. After just taking NLSCer DeMarr Jones, the Philadelphia 76ers took another NLSCer, Riley Gisseman.

The first round wasn't full of surprises except the pickup of Thomas Robinson by Detroit, not the smartest pick clogging up their inside, but it should work out in the future.

Best Pick: Jared Sullinger
Worst Pick: Andrew Nicholson

Now we take a look at the second round that had as much trades as the first to our surprise, here is the round and its trade:
Image
Image
Image
Image

After drafting Arnett Moultrie, instead of taking one more player out of this draft, Phoenix decided to make it known that this pick was up for grabs, and soon after, Charlotte was calling their green room with an offer they couldn't refuse. Phoenix gets rid of that second round pick, and contract heavy Josh Childress opening up plenty more cap space to make moves in the free agency. They also get Charlotte's first rounder, but watch out, after getting J.T. from Dallas last year, it looks like Charlotte is going to start winning soon. Charlotte then took Alex Young with their obtained pick.

New Orleans then immediately tried to fill up their missing small forward spot seeing as this draft was weak with them in the second round. They traded their second rounder for the Pistons' Tayshaun Prince. Prince spent his whole career with the Pistons, it draws a few tears for the Piston fans that a guy so loyal was traded by his team. Detroit took C.J. Leslie with their new pick.

Detroit nor Brooklyn were finished trading in the draft. Brooklyn sent over sharpshooter Anthony Morrow to Detroit in exchange for big-man Charlie Villanueva and Detroit's eighth overall pick. Villanueva held a large contract and it helps them for the future going into free agency. Brooklyn's purse must be tight after getting such big contracts in an attempt to win soon. Brooklyn then took Tomas Satoransky, another Croatian player.

Round two was filled with questionable picks, considering the talent still left on the board, the draft was still eventfull and re-injected with emotion with each pick.
Best Pick: Patric Young
Worst Pick: Ernest Hunter
That is a wrap folks, get ready for free agency as this season's market is full of great talent. Eric Gordon declined his offer from New Orleans, Gerald Wallace did too out of frustration with Memphis, Thad Young and the Denver Nuggets also agreed on a buyout since the player was so unhappy. Get ready for big moves everyone, this should be a good one!

A day into free agency, the Phoenix Suns have offered up contracts to three players. Potential All-Star Eric Gordon, defensive juggernaut Gerald Wallace, and last year's reigning Slam Dunk Contest winner Jeremy Evans. Eric Gordon played about seven minutes less last year for the Hornets than he did the previous year with the Clippers, he averaged 18.1 PPG in 30.3 MPG. He also notched a career high in three point shooting draining 38% of his shots from down town. Eric Gordon can not only help Phoenix win games, but could also help fill seats.

Gerald Wallace, though only to get into the All-Star game once, he still has the potential to one day make it back to the exhibition game. He played very little minutes compared to what he was used to while in Memphis and broadcasted his unhappiness, Memphis failed to trade Wallace and he was allowed to walk and find a new home. Wallace averaged just 7.1 PPG in 21 MPG in Memphis and only able to get 0.7 SPG. He hasn't had numbers that low since he was playing for the Kings in his first three years in this league. G-Force was definitely uncomfortable while in Memphis, but it didn't hurt his value as both he and Eric Gordon are looking to nab big contracts this year.

The Suns want to be the team to supply both players with the contracts too.

Day three of the free agency process, not one player has picked a destination to sign yet but we're pushing hard at both Gerald Wallace, Eric Gordon, and Jeremy Evans as well. I want Gordon and Evans to be the futures of this team. Jermaine, along with Gerald if we sign him, will be able to show the ropes to these young bloods out there. Evans is still raw, but with O'Neal working day in and out on his post, I want Jeremy to learn the basics from him before O'Neal retires. Gordon pretty much has the basis of this league down anyway. He didn't want to play in New Orleans, he left, it's just that simple.

Now it is a bit strange to me that though no trades are allowed at the moment, one offer has peaked my interest. Houston is calling again, this time it's about Marcus Morris. They want to exchange him for only a second round pick. I like it, but seeing as we have his brother, and a few other combo forwards it isn't a sure thing that he'd be of much use if we sign Wallace. I was still discussing the matter with A.I. when Jared Dudely burst the door open, making me spill my coffee in my white chair.

Huey Newton: Now I'm gonna have to buy a whole new chair, what do you want Jared?

Jared Dudely: What's this about you going after Wallace and Markieff's brother?

Allen Iverson: Yo chill man, we were just discussing that, Houston called us about Marcus,we didn't call them.

All Jared did was stare at Iverson, whatever he said seemed to make him even more angry.

Dudely: Are you guys seriously talking about this?! I refuse to battle one more person for play time!

Newton: Like Iverson said, we didn't call Houston, we were just discussing how unique it would be to have twin brothers playing on the same team again.

Dudely: Nah, I don't believe you. You're known already for pulling triggers when it comes to any type of trade, how am I so sure I'm protected?

Newton: Wait whoa, nobody said you were protec-

Dudely: Then what am I still doing here? Send me to Texas with whatever crap you plan on taking there. I'm already done with you and this team.

Newton: So you're plannin' on leaving? We weren't even seriously in discussions about this trade.

Dudely: Yes I'm serious, get me out of here or I WILL become a distraction!

Dudely stormed out and you can see the fumes following him as he exited. What the hell was that all about? I wasn't really going to go after Marcus, but as it seems now, my hand is pretty much forced to pull the lever. Either keep a distraction, or gain yet another prospect. I guess I wasn't paying much attention until Iverson waved in my face a few times.

Iverson: Aye, you're sitting in your coffee. Haha!

New suit and new chair, add those things I need to fix to my list.

Yup, I talked myself out of drafting Chris Smith no matter how much I thought we needed another guard. We're quite depressing on the frontcourt side of the ball and Moultrie was still available so I thought, "Why not?" He's pretty decently rated too, nice pick by me to grab early in the second round. It's also a good thing I grabbed Petrovic, I'm not very sure how well Dragic can hit from three and with him I have Petrovic, Redd, and Dudely(For now) as my deep threats. Hopefully when he plays, Morris will also be a much needed floor stretcher.
