I mean if nothing has changed why wait. I am so anxious, I just want to know what is going on already. At this point by 3am he could just move the time again until either something really happens or nothing happens at all. This guy might have just dug himself too deep of a hole. And if he admits to it, no one will help him out.

So its still the status quo. There's a chance that it happens, but an equal or greater chance that it doesn't. Either way, its nice to know MJ is working hard at improving the team, and that there are several back-up plans ready to go.

No, because by 3 A.M. he will have been informed by his buddy if its through or not. He doesn't want to say if the deal has gone through yet because he is not 100% sure yet and won't be until his buddy that works with the Bobcats lets him know.

He said from the beginning that we'd know by Friday, and he'd let us know what was supposed to happen if it didn't go down by the end of today. 3AM our time is midnight in Vegas, where the GM meetings are taking place. He's a well-respected member of the community and a writer for other blogs. Continuously moving the deadline would hurt his credibility, and he knows that. He hasn't changed his story once.

Yeah James said there are 5-8 back-up plans, however he only knows the players involved for one of them. He said he will let every body know tomorrow.

There is some talk of a big trade going on and there are some guys on ROF (Rufus On Fire) that have some inside sources and there is not a 100% guarantee of anyone involved but most believe it is for Chris Paul and Emeka Okafor.

Not really sure, but he posted in his blog some very compelling evidence at Jordan spending over the lux this coming season and that the Trade would be huge.

The best reason IMO, is TT's salary this season.

12.5 million, you don't front load an offer like that if you aren't willing to do two things.

1. Pay the Luxury tax

2. Greatly improve the team to make the above worth it.

I think the guy is very credible and his original post on RoF was very intriguing. I'm just saying if nothing happens I am going to be very sad :sad:

Long story short: A couple guys on a Bobcats blog (Rufus on Fire) are claiming to have inside sources about something big coming. Both of these guys are highly respected members of the RoF community, and one of them is a writer for a couple Panthers websites. So, there's good reason to believe them. They can't give up too much info and risk their sources, but its believed that there's either a big trade going down today, or a few back-up moves that will happen in the near future. If the big trade doesn't go down, one of the guys with the inside info (James the Aussie) will let us know who the trade(s) was supposed to be for, who we were giving up, etc.

Something will happen, just maybe not today. Dampier's contract is one of the most attractive trade chips in all of the NBA.
