First off, we’ll touch on the #5 to Detroit for the #7 and Tayshaun Prince, which we mentioned in today’s earlier blog posting. It’s not much of anything new, other than the Detnews.com putting their spin on it.
According to them, we’d also be sending the Pistons “a rotation player” (obviously voiding Nocioni), which is news to me. No mention of the two boxes of lube we’d be receiving though. Strange. Hopefully it’s that fancy kind that warms up! HIGH QUALITY LUBEZ!
In other news, Mr. I like to make shit up Chad Ford says the Kings are now interested in Butler’s Gordon Hayward. Why you ask? Excellent question. Not that Hayward is a stiff by any stretch, but, considering the other big men on the board before him…it sounds, I don’t know, very Chad Ford-ish. I’ve got twenty bucks on a “Rubio to Kings” article before draft day. All aboard the bullshit train. CHOO CHOO.
Also of note, Pinocchio Ford says the Kings are extending all options to find a taker for Nocioni.
Hard hitting reporting, eh? And he gets paid for it. Ain’t that some shit.
