    The almost dealing him to New York to be with Amar'e is interesting. Further proof that O'Connor is always looking. Even if he didn't pull the trigger alot he was always exploring.

    I wanted to see Dwight Howard go to the Nets after they got D-Will. That would be a fun team to watch.

    "The deal for Williams that King threw at O'Connor that day was bigger than the one they ended up consummating, out of nowhere, two days later. O'Connor knew what King was offering the Nuggets for Anthony, and while Williams had not publicly demanded a trade, O'Connor sensed that things were going in the wrong direction in his plan to retain Williams when he eventually became a free agent in July 2012."

    I wonder which other players were tossed in/out of their talks.

    IMO: Favors/Kanter/Marvin/Mo/(GSW 1st) >> Felton/Gallo/Chandler/Mosgov/(NYK '14 1st)
    i may quote myself from other treads... sue me!

    I want to know what other picks KOC couldve gotten too!?!
    It could have been players or have involved other teams.

    I see that his wrist is bothering him again. Dude always has issues with his wrist, wonder what he does to injure it so often?

    Torrey Ellis lives. Go Jazz.

    The nets would probably have a pretty nice roster without all the trades.

    Favors
    Brook
    Kanter
    Brooks
    Lillard

    Along with some other stuff.

    "He (KOC)said, 'I can't do that,'" King said. "'I can't put this guy in, and I can't put that guy in. But I can put Deron in.' And so then he said, 'I'll call you back.' That gave me hope."

    So I wonder who are 'this guy' and 'that guy'?

    Raja & CJ?

    I'm guessing Milsap and CJ. Perhaps Ak.

    Ummm I think you're making a mistake reading that quote so literally. "This or that"... likely not two and only two specific players. More likely a general tone that KOC had, though all players probably came up if D Will did.

    The Knicks were stupid to go after Carmello. They would be a much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much,

    better team with Deron. Much better.

    And as someone posted above, The Nets would be much better without all the trades. All that young talent with TONS of caps space.

    We need to remember this with Jefferson. If the Jazz keep him until the end of the year, it might not be a bad thing. Sucks for this year though.
