Thats what I heard is Golden State is trying to become a more defensive team. Maybe Philly is looking for some scoring in Monta Ellis, but they don't exactly have a high-tempo offense and Monta has played in that type of offense his whole pro career. Makes more sense for GS than Philly.

The 2012 draft class looks like it could be really good from what I've seen so far. Im thinking the Cavs will probably be picking in the top 10 picks next years draft. After this years draft and next years I think the Cavs will be a tough team again for the 2012-2013 season. They will probably improve somewhat next year, but I just don't feel one draft will be able to turn a 19 win team into a playoff team all of a sudden.

I heard this deal was thankfully off the table. Upper management and Mark Jackson made a comment about this the other day. The only way they trade Ellis is for an ELITE guy in return and Andre does not qualify as one.

I have heard a rumor of Baron Davis possibly being traded around draft time but no destination has been mentioned.

Kind of old news but posting anyway. The Wizards have new uniforms.

Washington Wizards’ new uniforms and logo became a reality more quickly than for most NBA teams - The Washington Post

RUMOR: (never believe rumors about the spurs until the deal is done.)

parker being shopped to toronto and sacremento for either the 5 or 7 pick.

personally i think parker is gone BUT i dont like either pick unless kanter is still on the board. there are no other players in this draft that could help the spurs enough to trade parker. this is also contengent on what other pieces get thrown in to make the money work. i dont see anyone on either team who would be available for trade that is worth messing with either. no way an evans or favors are given and toronto has garbage for players so i say BOOOOOOOOO!

Theres been so many rumors but nothing has actually happened yet. Im very excited for the draft tommorow. Im pretty sure the Cavs will take Kyrie with the first pick, Im really interested to see what they do with the 4th pick and if they try and trade.
