Sam Presti is the man. He has made some really good moves and by staying below the cap, he can do things like this. Where do you think the Thunder will go with #18, Whiteside?

Rumor is Larry Sanders from VCU

LOL:

From NBA.com:
The Cleveland Cavaliers don't currently have a coach, any draft picks or a clue if LeBron James is coming back.


Great :D

The Thunder are a big man away from being a playoff contender to a championship contender.

If their front office keeps making moves like this, they'll be there in no time. I'm definitely liking that franchise.

great trade by Miami AND Thunder. Miami is positioning themselves for 2 max deals plus option to re-sign Wade. However, we all know LeBron wont be going to Miami. Wade + LeBron would hurt his "Legacy", and his ego (probably both their egos) are too big to be long term teammates.

Something like Wade + Amare + Boozer is more realistic.

Solid move by both teams.

Miami's offseason is gonna be really interesting, because, from all the big name free agents, they're the only ones that can count on their own coming back and luring other free agents to that team.
