last year we traded for pau gasol, then everyone else started dealing...i understand this isn't even close to that trade in terms of players but will the rest of the league start dealing?

This trade start a domino effect? No way in heck. Those trades from last year were (or at least they appeared to be) a direct result from our trade. We caused those other teams to panic. Trades will happen but that's just because of the approaching trade deadline, NOT because of our trade.

Considering that the trade deadline is close, I think you will see a few more trades but the trades won't be because of this one.

I doubt those two would even contribute this year...

Yes, I can see it now. Phoenix and Dallas vying for the right for Smush Parker to match the Lakers.

Domino effect is a term that refers to one piece being related to the fate of the other pieces. Vlad Rad was not a HUGE expiring contract, nor was he a disgruntled superstar that teams were saving their pieces for. Sure, he could been had as part of a deal for LO but that's because LO IS the huge expiring/semi-disgruntled talented player that teams would want.


There is no "domino effect" here. Any team that was holding on to players for the best offer are STILL holding on to those players for the best offer. Vlad Rad is not the "best offer" by any meaning of the words...

Except, maybe for Charlotte or teams that want to unload worse trash.
