Sonics unlikely to deal
Samuel Dalembert a Sonic? Not likely.
The News Tribune's Frank Hughes reports today that the Sonics are unlikely to make a trade before today's deadline.
And personally, I couldn't be happier. Sure, it'd be nice to get someone like Samuel Dalembert, but not if it means giving up the heart and soul of the team. The fact is, this Sonics squad has exceeded everyone's wildest expectations to become one of the best teams in the league, and there's no reason to fix something that's not broken.
Meanwhile, in Denver, I predict George Karl and crew will be making a big move before the end of the day. Another Karl/Payton reunion, perhaps? Stay tuned.
