    We dont have a thread for the offseason so there we go.

    Some news.

    According to multiple league executives, the Cavs and Sacramento Kings have restarted talks to bring Mike Bibby to Cleveland. The two teams nearly completed a deal shortly before February's trading deadline and have been in discussions again over the past several days.

    A version of the deal was close to happening Thursday, sources said, in a three-way move with the San Antonio Spurs.

    The Kings, looking to add more scoring to their front line, have been interested in Drew Gooden. According to a source, Damon Jones also might have been included in the potential deal.

    Bibby, who has two years and $28 million left on his contract, averaged 17.1 points and 4.7 assists for the Kings last season. He has an opt-out clause after this season, in which he will make $13.5 million.

    Without salary-cap room and with the market being a little bare for point guards, the Cavs have actively been pursuing trades to pick up a playmaker to help their offensive issues.
    In other Cavs news, there has been no movement in talks with free-agent forward Anderson Varejao.

    Varejao's representatives, who left the Las Vegas Summer League without a deal Thursday, and the Cavs are believed to be millions apart. The Cavs have said re-signing Varejao is an offseason priority.

    Some of you may not agree with me on this but I think bringing in Bibby is just what we need to get to that extra level.

    He will do wonders for LeBron

    It would be a great pickup for the Cavs.... in 2004. As much as I liked Bibby in his hayday, I just think that he's on his last legs as a prime time player.

    Luis Scola.The Rockets just traded for the BEST Euro player anywhere. The MVP. We practically stole him from the Spurs because the Spurs refused to bring him in at Power Forward. Woo hoo. Rockets. That fills our weakest position for a player who said he would never play again in usa, spanoulis.

    Yi is a good buy right now. Milwaukee needs to unload him for anything they can. They made a big mistake.

    He had contract issues with his old team that's why he didn't play last year. Apparently Chicago were interested in him as well.

    Adelman seems to make players appear better than they actually are. If you look at players who played under Adelman, they had career years like Divac, Bibby, ect.. and then they regress. It is an interesting phenomena. I don't know what to make of Bibby. But a few years ago he was pretty good and confident. I don't know what happened. He's a solid addition to a team in the finals though. He should be considered an upgrade.
