Neither did I. It's possible they have submitted the deal to league office so it can happen the first day you can make trades (around draft day).

I'm saying so because I can't remember the last time a team traded anybody during the NBA finals. It probably never happened before.

Yeah, it wont be official until the trade window actually opens around draft time.

Its just all initial agreements at this stage.

Yeah, I didn't realize that also.

Basically, they swapped rebounding for shooting. It's actually a good small trade for both teams. The Sixers were horrific from beyond the arc, and the Raptors needed another rebounder off the bench.

That's it. Sixers really needed another shooter and should not have traded Korver, as he did that well for them

why are the celtics considering trading rondo? are they dumb? Sure, they want Allen gone, and they want to spice up offers by including rondo, but the luckyest man in the world (Danny Ainge) will be criticized if he pulls the trigger.

Boozer said he expects to be gone before the season starts, but said he'd be perfectly fine staying in Utah. Still, if that's happening, I'm pretty sure it signals the end for Boozer in Utah.

Miami is still in the mix, but that's about it. At least, I haven't heard about any other team being interested...

Yeah, but I don't think it matters much. They're more interested in him being an expirer, hoping to re-sign Wade and add another star like Bosh during next offseason. They're not looking for a long-term commitment, so his "posturing" shouldn't matter much for a one-year deal.
