Last year we had the Lakers taking Pau Gasol from the Grizzlies, Jason Kidd made his way to the Mavericks and Shaquille O'Neal became the Suns center. This year with all the huge rumor of Amare Stoudamire and possibly Vince Carter making moves in the NBA, were sitting less than 24 hours away from the deadline with the biggest deal being Jermaine O'Neal heading to the Heat in return for Shawn Marion to the Raptors. Not sure were going to see any late minute blockbuster deals this year due to economy and lack of offers. We have seen Adam Morrison and Shannon Brown come to the Lakers in return for Vladimir Radmonovich, which made sense due to contracts and the fact that the space cadet had lost his minutes to Trevor Ariza and Luke Walton. The most recent buzz was the move including Drew Gooden and Andres Nocioni for Brad Miller and John Salmons. The Bulls and the Kings were rumored to be making some moves with other teams. Brad Miller had been rumored to possibly land in San Antonio and finish his season as a Spur, but as most of the rumors it is what it was... A rumor. So if you are an NBA fan waiting for something huge as I am, I wouldn't stay to in tune to the deadline as it looks like this year will be a bust.
What a boring trade deadline!
