New Jersey sure didn't waste any time making this trade after scrapping the Shareef Abdur-Rahim deal...

Where the eff was the Mavs? Marc Jackson is a pretty good backup center with a reasonable contract for 2 years. A second round pick and we didn't inquire? Are the Mavs asleep?

Philly is just trying to shed some salary after overpaying Green, Korver and Dalembert

Exactly. NJ had what Philly wanted, which was the trade exception (which allows them to cut payroll and LT).

This is a bit off topic:

76ers' Green to have knee surgery

August 9, 2005

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Philadelphia 76ers guard Willie Green will have arthroscopic surgery Tuesday to repair cartilage in his left knee.

He was scheduled to sign a $20 million, six-year contract, but the restricted free agent injured his knee in a pickup game. While contract terms were reached, the deal was never signed.

Green will be operated on by specialist Dr. James Andrews.

Agent Noah Croom said Green has been running and doing light weightlifting, and is optimistic about playing this year.

``He wants to get this over with so he can get back on the court as soon as possible,'' he said.

Green thrived as a sub last year when Allen Iverson was injured, including a 32-point game against Washington in January.

In two seasons with the 76ers, Green averaged 7.3 points and 1.4 assists. He was drafted in the second round in 2003 by Seattle and acquired by Philadelphia in a draft-night trade.

I thought we aquired a trade exception from one of the trades last off-season?
