    They picked his option up in April before the CBA deal went into lockout mode I believe. I'm sure they weren't expecting this go down though, meaning signing Chandler but it was a need.

    I'm sure they had no idea about Chandler specifically, but I would imagine they knew they could of used that money. Hell I thought it was a given that they would let him walk in free agency.

    Yea I was wondering why they picked him up, considering the amount he was making. I figured as a trade chip to get CP3 though but then again we lack assets.

    • Turiaf headed to the Washington Wizards it appears
    • David West to sign with the Boston Celtics in the next 24 hours
    • Keyon Dooling and a protected 2nd round pick was traded to the Celtics
    • Jermaine O'Neal would probably be sent to New Orleans in a sign/trade deal involving David West
    • Von Wafer signs with the Orlando Magic
    • Apparently Greg Oden suffered a setback, and could possibly miss the entire 2011-2012 season....WOW
    • Knicks haven't used amnesty on Billups yet but will get under the cap when Turiaf is finally gone. Only so little cap room left to fill the rest of the roster if they keep Billups.

    Gotta feel bad for Oden. Poor guy can't catch a break.

    Why did they sign Oden to a 1 year deal if they already knew this? Makes no sense. Sucks for Oden though. With Brandon Roy's retirement due to knee issues, I'm starting to get a feeling that perhaps Portland's medical staff are clueless.

    I imagine the original plan was to go after Paul either with the expiring deal or wait until next offseason to sign him as a free agent. It became apparent that NO was going to get much better offers and would trade him before this season was over. Walsh has done a tremendous job cleaning up Isiah's mess in record time and rebuilding that team but hes been a step slower than the other top teams in every move.

    There were teams crossing off both Oden and Roy from their draft boards well before either was selected.....their issues weren't some great secret. The Blazers took a chance and it didn't work out.

    Some **** that went down today:
    • CP3 to Lakers deal off again
    • Lamar Odom to be traded to the Mavericks for the trade exception in the Tyson Chandler sign/trade
    • With that said, I guarantee the Lakers will be going hard for Dwight
    • Chauncey Billups got axed via amnesty clause
    • Jason Richardson signs with the Orlando Magic
    • David West deal on hold, just waiting on the right sign/trade with Celtics
    • Mavs will waive Andy Rautins who they acquired from the Knicks in the sign/trade deal
    • Knicks & Timberwolves in the hunt for JJ Barea
    • Bucks match Denver's offer sheet of Luc Mbah a Moute
    • Jazz signed Jamal Tinsely, Keith McKleod, and Tred Gilder
    • All signs point to Mike Bibby signing with the Knicks....I'm not a fan of that move
    • Kings are trying to lure AK47 from Russia
    • Rockets/Nets seem to be front runners for Nene
    • Spencer Hawes signs qualifying offer, back with the 76ers
    • Grizzlies sign Jeremy Pargo
    • Eddie House opted out of final year in contract
    • Pietrus deal off as of know because of Pietrus's swollen knee
    • Knicks send Turiaf, 2nd round pick in 2013, and cash sent to the Warriors
    • Pistons add Damien Wilkins to training camp roster
    • Aaron Gray signs with the Raptors
    • Rip Hamilton looking like he might be a Bull soon
    • Rasual Butler signs with the Raptors
    Might of missed some **** but overall decent day of NBA excitement
