Now that you know everything there is to know about the ref betting scandal and Stern's nightmares, there is some other basketball news out there. Some free agent and trade news. The Suns traded Thomas to Seattle for a trade exception and a couple of picks. Now that they have cleared some salary, they may or may not want to trade Marion or go after KG. Phoenix is stockpiling picks. I am sure there is more to come from them. The Yi saga continues as he confirms that he has made a trade request to the Bucks. Who knows where this will end. Miami and Gasol both want Navarro. Washington wants to dump a big contract along with him. Celtics would be wise to at least check into getting Thomas or Haywood along with Navarro.
Kobe is practicing with the USA team but is not talking about his future with the Lakers. I would think that Fisher's return may smooth things over a bit. Jason Kidd's play is a key to the success of the USA team. NBA TV is going to televise a scrimmage on Sunday night at 10pm. Should be fun to watch.
