Just imagine the embarassment to the city if we start booing the Jewish guy cuz they traded away a sure thing in Hickson. Fucking Grant.

So what is Casspi e0? I know you catch some Kings games cuz of Evans. Just looking at his stats, bio, and from what I can remember he has a good shot and can rebound. Defense? Shouldn't we be getting a 2nd rounder (1st!!!!???) thrown in...??? Though he was only picked a handful of slots lower then Hickson.

IMO with TT and Samuels Hickson is... Well I'm just not that effected by the move, and it takes from an area of depth to plug an area of weakness.

Obvious need move as Hickson even w/ his warts still has a higher upside than Omri.

IMO, both are best served off the bench but Casspi is a blue collar 6-8 rotation guy and Hickson can be an effective game changer as an athletic scorer off the bench and if used correctly.

Casspi had every chance to lock down a starting job w/ the Kings last year and just couldn’t do it, resulting in the dumbest draft day trade in ages and your favorite player ever Johnny Salmons moving to Sac-town.

Deal is meh all around but a draft pick should be thrown in. Ideally a lottery protected first from the Kings.

This also means Jason Thompson is more than just on the market in Sac as no one needs him and JJ.

First round pick good deal. Seems its lotto protected for 2012, but IMO I don't see Sac-Town being any worse then a late teens pick worst case. Details, details, on the protection.

They are not the same guy at all.

Deal is meh and fine, but Hickson is an impact athlete at the very least, Casspi is a hustler and what not but he was pretty brutal last year.

Nothing worth being pissed off about, but the pick is being thrown into the deal for a reason.

Fuck yourself.

There are as many reports that Ferry balked on giving up Hickson as their are Kerr was wavering.

Probably more on the Ferry side.

Same guy, not same guy, whatever. Same results. Past results don't guarantee future success, but so far they've each given their team about the same.

Don't care if you will doubt it. There was A LOT of highly credible smoke about that.

Doubt it all you want but bringing it up like you were right and thumping your chest is as stupid a chest thumping as you can make.

Even Lowe just said, it was never proven either way but it's certainly something that should sting a little.

15th pick in the draft next year is worth more than #3 was this year. Should have 2 good picks in a deep draft, as long as this isn't heavily protected.

Both sides thumping chest over the Hickson and Amare thing right now should grow up and shut up, EOD no one knows what happened there.

And people that never watched Casspi play a single game should avoid telling me what he is.

I would bet a good chunk of money this pick is lotto protected.

Also do have a Heat pick next year, right? Or do those not kick in till 2020?

Before I clicked on this thread, if you would have asked me what an Omri Casspi is, I would have guessed a boat or a tennis player.

Sad to see Hickson go. I liked watching him. Glad we got a first. This seems to make some sense.

So we're not getting this pick next year.

Damn that Kings roster is young. Hickson is going to be a veteran for them.

Reke, Cousins, Hickson, Jimmer. They might score but they aren't going to stop anyone.

And the Cavs, w/ TT, Andy, Casspi and probably Parker will not be able to score on anybody.

That said, expect Casspi to become a fan favorite, as blue collar a player as you will find. Always on the floor and always hustling. But ideally should be coming off the bench.

Not good:

The first round pick acquired from Sacramento is lottery-protected in 2012 (1-14). The pick is then protected in 2013 (1-13), 2014 (1-12) and 2015-2017 (1-10). If the pick is not conveyed by 2017, then Sacramento will convey its own 2017 second round draft pick to the Cavaliers protected (56-60).

Apparently the Cavs hate early 2nd round picks since we gave away this years and have freaking 2017 protection on this one.

What a damned weird ass protection to have thrown in.

Casspi- Key to the City in Beachwood and Pepper Pike?

I liked this deal until I found out there was full lottery protection in 2012. They should have maxed out at top 7-8 protection. This probably ends up being something like the 9th pick in 2014, thought Hickson had a little more value than that.

Whoops, all I saw was lotto in '12 and top 10 in '13. Received bad info. This is awful, Sacto may not be out of the top 10 for 5 years. Does this mean that if it isn't conveyed by 2017, the second round pick replaces the first rounder?

Ridiculous. Chris Grant is getting taken to the cleaners in any negotiation that doesn't involve the Clippers (and even that one was basically writing a check and being blessed when a 2.8% chance came through). First he takes Thompson 4 spots above his value and has nothing to show for it now this. He trades one of our only assets (who has a very low NBA salary) before the lockout and a potential hard cap and gets an extremely average forward and what could easily be a 2017 SECOND ROUND PICK. God forbid they ever get a fucking professional to run this team.

Meh, no need to freak out.

If they get a 10-15 first in a couple years the deal is fine.

If they end up getting a 2nd or nothing that sucks.

But JJ Hickson isn't exactly a huge asset.

They took too much protection on this one and got too little in the last deal. Meh.

Not the best deal but not worth flipping out.

Watching this team try to score next year is gonna be hilarious though.

I suppose there are good odds of them at least winning 35-40 games and getting out of the top 10 before 2017. But even then, that's way off in the future and you're usually supposed to be compensated for those years you're sacrificing.

And Casspi is by no means a bad player. I just don't know why you'd cash out for a middling/low-ceiling return like this before a great unknown like the lockout. Hickson obviously has some major flaws but his salary was low and I think his age/numbers were still intriguing to a few teams (I know better because I watch him nightly but many NBA execs don't). I guess I'm still more mad about the draft and the general incompetence that the franchise continues to exhibit.

You said 'Jimmer' and 'pass' in the same sentence.

Maybe Jimmer's missed jumpers hit Hickson in the head?

Less about this trade and more about the direction, or lack there off, with this organization. I'm right around, "What the hell are you guys...oh who fuckin' cares."

Meh.

Too early to figure that out. Data points aren't in a good line right now but gonna give them some more time before going nuclear.

This deal is fodder and what I expected for JJ anyhow.

At least we know they'll suck next year.

Also Aldridge just tweeted that the league still hasn't ruled on our TPE.

Screw the late first round draft pick, I refuse to root for 'Da Jimmer'.

I hope I'm proven wrong, but it seems to me like the talent level on this team is going round and round in circles instead of getting better, what with the draft choices (excepting Irving) and this trade.

I fear that there's not really a well thought-out plan in place, or the plan in place has been written by a direct descendant of Lt. Col. George A. Custer.

Between Andy flopping evry 10 seconds, and The Big O's irritant ways, the Cavs are likely to catch a few knuckles this season. At least it's a reason to stay tuned.

And, yes, the guy comes off the bench on a decent team.

Removes any worry about signing Hinson, errr Hickson to a long term deal.

His salary floor, with slight improvement this season has to be 5yr@around 8 million? You got a lower ceiling guy you control for another 2 years, at a position of need. Said guy is also coming from a dysfunctional team?

There is alot of young talent on that King's team, but damn they are all gonna want the ball, and Jimmer is your PG???
