They might. The injury completely changed the picture and made the price for the other two possibly too high. If Nerlens Noel can play power forward, it's a possibility. But I would have figured the Sixers wanted to make an impact right away and Embiid is obviously sidelined. Sixers fans are anxious for signs of improvement.

Wiggins, Parker, Embiid. So Embiid did not slip too far after all (and the Sixers did take him).

Apparently, Cleveland turned down an offer for the 3rd, 10th, and 32nd for the 1st

Embiid didn't look too thrilled with his landing spot...

There was a satellite delay

He hadn't even seen his name called when they cut to him.

Milwaukee Bucks send two draft picks to the Nets in exchange for Jason Kidd.

Way to spend two picks on a coach who doesn't want to coach and would have been fired by the Nets anyway after his failed putsch.

Agreed!

And he wants FULL control!

This is a head scratcher

From Kidd's standpoint, I don't think it's hard to understand. There has got to be considerably more pressure to win in Brooklyn than in lowly Milwaukee and he still gets the benefit of having some good young talent.

Besides that, from what I have read, he feels like he is getting stiffed on his contract particularly because Dereck Fisher got more from the Knicks. Why Fish's salary would be a particular problem, I don't know. Fish could at least claim a leadership role on some NBA champions.

Apparentely no front office responsibilities are included in the deal, per ESPN report. Interesting. The report states that the original negotiations ere between the team's owners and not basketball personnel. Later, per ESPN, after the story broke, the Bucks said their GM was handling the negotiations. This is a shaky way to start a coaching tenure, wih your GM seemingly on the outside looking in.

Interesting.

Didn't Kidd v Fish on the court? Did Fish always "win"?

Wonder if this is a driver for Kidd?

HAIL SATAN

Edit: Honestly, that SI piece displays a remarkable amount of maturity on James' part, and I really like his reasoning (though, to be fair, you have to do a tremendous amount of rationalization to convince yourself to willingly go to fucking Cleveland). But it's mature and realistic.

I feel my calling here goes above basketball. I have a responsibility to lead, in more ways than one, and I take that very seriously. My presence can make a difference in Miami, but I think it can mean more where I’m from.
That hits me right in the gut.

I'm also amazed SI was able to keep this under wraps for so long -- they had to have had this ready to go since last night.

Excellent decision by Lebron. My respect for him just went from "begrudging" to "actual".

Pretty damned incredible. This statement makes LeBron appear to be exactly who did NOT appear to be 4 years ago; a person with a clear view of himself and how he fit into the world, the people around him, or what was really important to him.

The amount of love from Cle will be equal to the amount of hate heaped upon him in 2010. This is going to be real interesting to watch. Props to LeBron for growing up to the point that he wasn't afraid to share that growth.

NBA has got to be loving this. The league has managed to stya on the front pages of the sports sections pretty much all of the off season (even though not all of the pub was good).

Wow.

No TV special this time?



Seriously, I think that's great for Cleveland, and great for the NBA in general. Good for him.

Re: NBA Season - 2013-2014

Interesting. Makes the league instantly more interesting (well, aside from the power disparity between the east and west).

And, with that, the free agency flood gates can open. Houston is clearing up cap space for Bosh, apparently sending Jeremy Lin to Los Angeles (and giving LA a first round pick to go with it).

For awhile, the rumor was Lin to the Sixers for exactly that. I honestly didn't know LA had the cap space. It makes me wonder why they went with LA over Philly. Maybe Houston didn't like the fact that Sam Hinkie gave Lin that albatross of a contract when he was in Houston and then was demanding a draft pick to take it off Houston's hands.
