1) Gerald Wallace -- Portland has absolutely no need for Gerald Wallace, but I guess this is evidence of the fact that "whoever cares the least in a negotiation comes out ahead." The Bobcats move their second best player who plays big minutes for them and get.............Joel Pryzbilla and a #2 pick.
Bobcats -- F -- if this is all you could get, just keep the guy around.
Portland -- C -- absolutely no need for Gerald Wallace, but if someone tonight offered me a new TV for $11 and a hearty handshake, I would take it and either find someplace for the TV or sell it.
2. Aaron Brooks to Phoenix for Goran Dragic and a #1
Well, Brooks is clearly the better player -- you wonder if this means that Nash is soon on his way out the door in Phoenix? Dragic is an OK backup, but a big step down from Brooks. The #1 will be about a #13. Not great value there.
Phoenix -- B minus -- Brooks has his own problems and likes to start and shoot a lot, is he Nash's backup or heir apparent?
Houston -- D plus -- didn't get much for a good NBA starter-level point guard (and Chris Rock lookalike).
3. Marquis Daniels to Sacto for........nothing
Sacramento had cap space and picked up Daniels, I think, by paying cash
Boston -- C -- who cares
Sacto -- see above.
4. Mayo/McRoberts trade called off -- call in didn't make the dealine.
Hurts both teams.
Supposedly New Orleans was involved, but I am sure they would have added salary and pissed off 1/29th owner Mark Cuban so much that he would have brought a shareholder derivative suit (or LLC equivalent). Once New Orleans couldn't do the deal, the deal was off.
