Free Agency Buzz 12.9.11: Chalmers back to Miami

heritage,

The Raptors are still dizzy from getting beat over the head in the Bosh debacle.
Don't the CBS writers proofread their articles before they're allowed to post them to the web?

I guess all Big trades will get axed in the future... someone didnt read the small print on the CBA contract! You gotta think the players and owners are gunshy now on pulling the trigger on 'Blockbuster' deals... No bigger than Medium trades Owners...! Cant imagine how all the players in the Chris Paul deal feel this morning reporting to their 'old' team! Maybe Stern should go ahead and void last year's Lebron and Bosh trade today to call it even from yesterdays disaster!!
