NBA Big men move fastest.

With the season over, basketball fans everywhere can now only concentrate on one thing. Trades. Who do we need? Who do we want to get rid off? Who needs resigning? The last week has been filled with news mainly from the movements of 7 footers.

    Anthony Davis was the number 1 pick in the draft and he will begin next season with the New Orleans Hornets. After they lost Chris Paul, Anthony Davis may be the key to putting a smile on New Orleans fans faces. I also met Emeka Okafor’s wife a few months ago. I’m sure he is excited to have Anthony play alongside him. This is pointless information but I thought it was cool. We watched a Lakers game together in the airport. Groovy.

Blake Griffin has made public that he intends to sign a 5 year extension deal with the Clippers. It also looks like Lamar Odom will be joining him in LA again. Odom had a horrid time in Dallas. I’m sure his move is 50% Chloe Kardashian wanting to move out of Dallas though… Interestingly, Chris Paul has declined a 3 year extension offer on his current contract with the Clippers. Could Paul be on the move?

   Kevin Garnett has resigned with the Boston Celtics for a further 3 years in a deal worth $34 million. This is huge news for Rajon Rondo. Not only do the two get to keep playing together, but the chances of the Celtics Big Three staying together are now much more likely. There were heavy rumours that Ray Allen was on his way to Miami Heat as he was in search for one more championship before retirement. We know that Paul Pierce will never leave the Celtics. Maybe they can all try one last time? I know we’d all love to see it (and then see Rondo head to the Lakers…)



Pau Gasol 
is looking like cannon fodder for the Lakers as they try to shuffle their playing cards. Their salary cap is pretty much at a full now, however Gasol could bring in an established player or give them more money to offer to unsigned free agents like Jason Kidd, Deron Williams and Steve Nash. I can’t see it happening as Mitch Kupchak is eager to resign Ramon Sessions who has also stated he looks forward to a long career with the Lakers…..I hope you’re practicing that 3 right now Ramon.

   Finally, Dwight Howard has provided the most entertainment in the trade market over the last few days. He decided to sign a 1 year extension on his current contract before suddenly requesting a trade to the newly placed Brooklyn Nets (New Jersey Nets). He is property of Orlando for the next 12 months but since he now has back problems it may not be worth keeping him to then lose him for no money/players. It would be more sensible to trade Howard now whilst you can still get something worthwhile in return. This could then see Deron Williams stay with the Brooklyn Nets in what would be a newly formed and fearsome team in the Eastern Division. Furthermore, Jason Kidd is best friends with Deron and is hoping to play with him next season, maybe as a number 2 point guard for the Brooklyn Nets? Sounds juicy doesn’t it?

Either way, I’ll just be happy that there will be a new team capable of stopping Lebron and Miami. 

P.s- Steve Nash, Toronto ain’t got soccer like LA! Come live near your best friends David Beckham and Landan Donovan, Kobe will love your constant passing to him.
