The Youth movement is here, and this year is gonna be a tad rough, but hey another lottery pick, and another chance to inprove.
    How about Taj Gibson?

    Three ok bench players, Nick Johnson who has a lot of potential and can be good coming off the bench right away and a first rounder for Lawson. Man.... Houston is dumb.

    The thing about the NBA is it really only takes two stud draft picks to turn your team around. Look at OKC. Hopefully Mudiay is the first stepping stone for the turn around. Finally lawson is gone!

    Nuggets have potentially 4 1st rounders next year!

    Remember the name Nick Johnson. Kid is a great defender and super athletic, he will fit in perfectly into what the Nuggets are trying to do.

    I'm pretty positive that whatever lawyers came up with these Pro sport CBA's are making bank.

    They get paid bank for all these scandalous rules they come up with that actually get approved in court.

    Just found this, so basically if you can wear out your welcome but still be a desirable player it really pays off.

    If another team signs a player who has cleared waivers, the player's original team is allowed to reduce the amount of money it still owes the player (and lower their team salary3) by a commensurate amount. This is called the right of set-off. This is true if the player signs with any professional team -- it does not have to be an NBA team. The amount the original team gets to set off is limited to one-half the difference between the player's new salary and the minimum salary for a one-year veteran (if the player is a rookie, then the rookie minimum is used instead).

    For example, suppose a fifth-year player is waived with one guaranteed season remaining on his contract for $5 million. If this player signs a $1 million contract with another team for the 2011-12 season, his original team gets to set off $1 million minus $762,195 (the minimum salary for a one-year veteran in 2011-12), divided by two, or $118,902. The team is still responsible for paying $4,881,098 of the original $5 million. Note that between his prior team and new team the player will earn a combined $5,881,098, which was more than he earned prior to being waived.

    Yuck. It may be time to pay him that to just stay away from the team though.

    Ryan O'Reilly just got a DUI too.
