Rumors

Another rumor to report about Luke Ridnour.

In addition to the Ridnour to Atlanta deal for the #11 pick, now there is talk of the Bucks offering to take the former Duck off the Sonics' hands. This rumor is courtesy of SI's Ian Thomsen.

Thomsen also sheds some light on the Ray Allen to Boston deal. Rather than the #5 and Theo Ratliff for Allen, it would be Wally Szerbiak (no!) and Delonte West and the #5 for Allen. The Sonics were holding out to replace West with Rajon Rondo, which makes the deal slightly more palatable, but Danny Ainge was insisting on Robert Swift, which the Sonics didn't want to do.

Again, this is all rumor, and like any good game of telephone, this is probably nothing. But it's worth knowing, just to see what the market will bear for an all-star shooting guard making $17 million a season.

Wally World! Say it isn't so!

Yep. Allen deal is done...

Are you sure about that, or is it just the crappy feeling we all have at this point that Clay Bennett is going to stab us in the back while we're jumping for joy!

If this deal is for real, that is just an awful scenario.

Katz at ESPN is saying that the deal is

Allen
Swift

for

#5
Wally
Rondo

That is HORRIBLE! If we're so anxious to dump Allen because is contract is bad, why the hell do we want Wally's deal, when its for 2 years? Would you rather pay Allen $17 mil a year for 3 years, or Wally $13 mil a year for 2? Is that even remotely a good question?

Arghhhhhhhhhhhhh!

Wow - I didn't realize that Swift was part of it. I don't want to part with him. Allen, meh...

Aaaaaagh! Well, it's Durant's team for sure now.
