Butler going to Dallas, Jamison still possible

Everyone was buzzing today about a potential Caron Butler, Antawn Jamison trade… but Butler is almost definitely going to Dallas for Josh Howard.

But…. he says Boston is still interested in Antawn… in what he calls a scaled down deal.

Quite honestly, I don't know how that will work.  He's making $11 million.  I don't see how "scaled down" the deal can get and have salaries still work.


Meanwhile, my T-Mobile-sponsored trip to the All Star game currently has me in St. Louis.  I will miss Rookie-Sophomore game, since I'm not getting into Dallas unitl 8:30 local time (9:30 ET).  Thank God for WiFi.

    actually the jamison deal could through. think about allen/davis for jamison/miller. makes sense for both teams, but… that sucks butler’s going to the mavs. the cavs are interested in jamison openly though, and have been for a while

  • Alex

    I’m no longer interested in this deal…
    If they add Miller, then we are talking.

  • Filipe

    I try to see a way to it just for Jamison and it fails, but Miller/Jamison for Ray/BBD works.
    But I m very worried. Jamison solves the Sheed disaster but if Ainge wants him this mean either he gonna start at SF and Pierce at SG or that KG really needs a rest.

  • I bleed green in L.A.

    Yeah, Miller would sweeten the deal, but why get another older power forward. Miller and Antawn for Ray and BBD fine, otherwise lets still go after Monta, Kevin Martin or Iggy and Augustine, I’m all for the rebuild now.

  • This could be part of a bigger scheme where Jamison is moved in to be moved out… Like when Rasheed played one game for the Atlanta Hawks?

  • Sophomore

    What would be the point of this trade? Jamison is 34, so we aren’t getting younger – in fact we’re taking on a longer commitment to a player on the downside of his career.

    Antawn Jamison sucks. Did u see how he played against us 2 weeks ago?? He can’t guard true 4s or quick 3’s. Hes an old..expensive bench player for us. I’de much rather have Big Baby and Ray. Its insane to even discuss this. House Baby T.A and Scal would work. I’de do that deal but no way I trade Ray for Jamison

  • it-is-what-it -is

    who’s the idiot coming up with those big trade rumors. i don’t believe any of them anyways.

  • Lee in Oregon

    I’m in the camp that thinks Jamison is old & sucks….we dont need old men past thier prime, we need a guy or two actually in it. If they get Martin or Iggy I would be ecstatic.
    Not a fan of Mike Miller either- Rather have Ray.

  • Eh…
    Dallas improves greatly, there fans must be excited by that move…
    move on to another deal, no reason to trade ray to get antawn jamison

  • Yup, I would rather have Ray as well….People act like our struggles are his fault… when we all just saw with out own 2 eyes him sit out a game and the team fall apart and all the same problems occur without him
