Bulls add Marshall after Jazz spurned him

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
By Chad Ford
ESPN.com


Chicago Bulls operations chief Jerry Krause and free agent forward Donyell Marshall were both spurned by the Utah Jazz on Thursday. So it should come as no surprise that they rushed into each other's arms on Friday.


Marshall


Two league sources told ESPN.com that the Bulls and Marshall have come to terms on a contract. The Bulls used their full $4.5 mid-level exception to lure Marshall. The deal should be announced later Friday, according to sources.

The signing is a sudden reversal for both Marshall and the Bulls. The Jazz reportedly had a four-year, $27 million offer on the table for Marshall, but pulled the offer on Thursday and instead signed free agent forward Matt Harpring, who was hotly pursued by the Bulls, to a four-year, $18.5 million dollar deal.

Marshall averaged 14.8 points and 7.8 rebounds for the Jazz last season. His ability to play both forward positions appeals to the Bulls. Right now, the team has Eddie Robinson at small forward and Tyson Chandler at power forward, but both players are still very raw. Marshall's experience, rebounding and versatility were all considered good fits by the team.

Marshall picked the Bulls over other teams because of the proximity to the midwest drug corridor. His crack prices will be lower.

That's a great observation - the Jazz were the 8th seed and thought he wouldn't be able to help THEM. Why would anyone think he could help the Mavs.

Besides, I don't want another spare from Utah. We had enough trouble getting rid of Eisley.

Look, I am not making a case because I love Donyell Marshall. That's not it. My point is that in terms of production, he was not that far off from Lewis and would solidify the 3 spot just like Lewis. He may not have the upside Lewis has but we don't realy need it. We just need production at the 3 that can be got for the exception. One of those options is gone now because we were to obsessed with waiting on a guy who is 99% likely to tell us no. This time next year, we will still be looking for production at the 3.

If you don't think the signing of Marshall would make the Mavs a championship team, then why are you whinning about not getting him.
Lewis will make the Mavs a championship team, and that's why they are waiting for him and no one else. He is the only player available that will improve the Mavs.

I never said this either, stop making up stuff.

I'm not going to debate with you over your championship comment(maybe another time) but your comments mean nothing if Lewis signs with Seattle, which is almost a certainty.

Then what was your point? That you think Marshall has drug problem but can't prove it?

08-16-2002, 04:36 PM
I didn't say you said it would make Mavs the champs. What I'm saying is he won't, so why bother with him or anyonelse other than Lewis.

Some fans think the Mavs have to sign someone to get better, they don't. This team needs time to gel together. Lewis is the only player worth the risk of commiting to this off season.

The rest are total CRAP and belong on the Bulls and Jazz.

I agree with u Nellie I dont think we were looking for a player to make us a championship team because I dont think Lewis is that player. I think we wer ejust trying to fill our void in for SF. Lee Nailon and Tyrone Nesby aRE still out there I wouldnt mind getting them both here for the exception splitting it. Marshall is another one of my favs I honestly didnt even have Lewis in my favs because I saw what he did in teh playoffs and wasnt impressed but all this take I hear I wanna bring him in here but I mean all this time is passing is making me wanna forget about LEwis becuase he is acting greety.

<< If you don't think the signing of Marshall would make the Mavs a championship team, then why are you whinning about not getting him. >>



Does a single move have to make the Mavs champs to be a good move? I think adding Marshall would have been solid, despite what everyone else seems to think. I don't think he was a &quot;Utah spare,&quot; as MFFL indicated. He was hurt for a while last year and fell out of favor up there, but the guy is a pretty decent player. Moreover, he'd have been a really good sixth man for us. Maybe he wanted to start, and maybe Chicago promised him that. Who knows, but he would have been a big improvement for us as the first big man off the bench.



<< Lewis will make the Mavs a championship team, and that's why they are waiting for him and no one else. He is the only player available that will improve the Mavs. >>



On what do you base this statement? I don't think adding Lewis guarantees anything, which is another reason I'm ready for Lewis to shit or get off the pot.

Evilmav2
08-16-2002, 07:52 PM
According to Cuban, Lewis should be &quot;shitting or getting off the pot&quot; by Monday or Tuesday when his parents get back from their vacation... So we'll just have to keep our fingers crossed until then...

If Lewis doesn't sign, this is the next MAV superstar. He was great the first time around so why not again. He should be cheap, and is a great team player.

Also, being so cheap, the Mavs will probably still get Russell.(although I don't think anyone whats them too.)

DrBio dont u think its retarted to say he wont be a mav also? I mean so RWB u have no confidence in the Mavs to pulling this one out. If Sonics offer him that same deal they have been from the start in 7 years with the Mavs he will be getting more than he would be in Seattle. Its really all about does he want ot lead his team to victory. I dont think he can do it but who knows.

I want Lewis to sign, I hope he does but he wont. Do you guys think he is some idiot or something? He knows he can get money now, rather then risk the chance of being injured or something when signing here for what the Mavs can offer. Lewis will be a Sonic next year, I am not the 1st to say it. I will take the hell, but will you guys take it when the Sonics sign him?

Drbio
08-17-2002, 06:20 PM
There is no need for us to take hell. If you read what I posted, it says that noone knows for sure 100% what he will do. There is an equal likelihood at this point and you stating that he won't sign here period is just retarded. Just because you declare it with conviction does not make it so. Your <u>opinion</u> is that Lewis will stay in Seattle. I respect that OPINION, but it's not one shared by everyone.

your opinion is clearly noted. I don't know where he will end up, but I think the Mavs have a slim chance, maybe even a 50-50 chance of him coming to Dallas. But note that I didn't say he is coming here PERIOD or try to put it out there as fact.

It's the offseason, the team's been incredibly quiet the last few weeks, and there's nothing new to debate right now. Lack of activity has nothing to do with a member's absence (lack of hostility, yes. lack of activity, no.). Ironically, traffic is at an all-time high and there have been a dozen or so new sign-ups. Go figure.

08-19-2002, 06:12 PM
It wasn't a shot. What's juvenile is people constantly harping about the banning when in fact they know little about what really happened. I said nothing negative about murph personally in my post, just that the level of hositlity as decreased, which is true.

The Crippler
08-19-2002, 06:50 PM
Rhylan, ironicaly, he's on this thread. A few have figured it out.

And yes, that was a shot at Murph whether you would like to admit it or not. And yes, his banning has dramatically cut down the number of posts on this board whether you will admit it or not. This board was humming along at an all time pace (and it was the offseason) when he was banned. Since then...nothing. Hey, but that's obviously the way you want it. Member numbers don't mean anything if all they do is read and lurk. Oh, but I forgot, they were too scared to post because of a certain poster.

Incorrect - you posted &quot;Lack of activity has nothing to do with a member's absence&quot;. You are talking about murph, right? Then you said &quot;(lack of hostility, yes. lack of activity, no.)&quot;. You are implying that murph was hostile, correct? If you are talking about murph in a negative light then that is tacky since YOU were the one who banned him and now he can't defend himself. And you brought up murph, nobody else.

And I don't care what your reports say, POSTING activity on this board is almost nonexistant. There's rarely any posts - even in the lounge which was humming along. And don't call this a boycott by murph's friends, I think it's more of a case that YOU have offended a lot of long time posters.

That's funny..you consider my comment a shot against murph yet you openly condone statements like this. Excuse me if I'm sick of seeing this crap. Do a search and you'll see this isn't the first comment of the sort. All I have to say if people are so pissed off at this board, then go post at a more &quot;active&quot; site rather than fill this one with bullshit like that. I take comments like that personally, as do I'm sure the other mods here.

An no I wasn't implying murph was hostile. No need to put words in my mouth. I implied that his absence resulted in less hostility. Meaning debates which often erupted into namecalling flamewars are no longer a common occurence. He wasn't the cause of all such &quot;debates&quot; but he was often involved in them, on both ends (both giving and receiving).

MFFL
08-19-2002, 07:18 PM
You DID make a shot against murph. I hold you (and the other moderators) to a higher standard than I do other posters. Your job is to stop flame wars, not start them. Unfair perhaps, but don't you think moderators should be &quot;moderate&quot;?

djb
08-19-2002, 07:31 PM
Ok so I'm supposed to sit there and allow crippler's comments? Perhaps I should do what a moderator is &quot;supposed to do&quot; and give strikes for that? If I'm not allowed to make comments like those then I see no reason why anyone else is allowed to make them.

I'm sorry if you misinterpreted my comment but it was not an intentional shot at murph. If you don't think there's a correlation (note the term correlation, not causation) between his absence and the decline in hostile debates, then fine that is your opinion. Also if you think a correlation exists between his absence and the decline in posts, then once again that is your opinion. I happen to realize this is the offseason, and the only reason activity was high a while back was due to the overabundance of Lewis and NVE rumors. If you want to blame someone for this dip in activity, blame the Mavs mgmt for making this summer such a boring one.

djbacklash, when I read your last post, it seemed like you were taking a shot at Murphy3. djbacklash, when I read you take shots at Murphy3, it sort of makes me mad, because Murphy3 isn't here to defend himself. Whether you were taking a shot at Murphy3 in your last post, or not, no one knows except yourself. djbacklash, if you say you weren't taking a shot at Murphy3 in your last post, then I believe you. However, since Murphy3 was banned, you have taken several shots at Murphy3. So I can see why myself and some people originally thought you were taking a shot at Murphy3 in your last post. djbacklash, if you say you weren't taking a shot at Murphy3 in your last post, I believe you.

Before Murphy3 was banned, this message board was more active. It had more posts and more debates. This site has slowed down since Murphy3 was banned, it's very obvious. Whether the total count of posters has increased or not, doesn't really matter very much. This message board has slowed down since Murphy3 was banned.

Red White and Blue is realclipsfan. It is obvious. Also, since realclipsfan came back, the hostility is here.

Some people talk about how Murphy3 stopped people from posting here. I didn't post as much before Murphy3 was banned, because I agree with a lot of what Murphy3 says, and I didn't want to take the time and effort to type the same thing. Now that Murphy3 has been banned, I will make more posts, which means I will spend time typing a lot of the same things that Murphy3 typed.

There are a lot of people who came to this message board because Murphy3 posted here. Murphy3 instantly helps give this message board credibility and it makes people think about what they post, before they post. Murphy3 made it so that people backed up their posts, instead of just typing something. For anyone to say that Murphy3 is in the same class as realclipsfan and dirk77 is ridiculous. Whether anyone wants to admit it or not, Murphy3 helped keep this message board active. Murphy3 is sort of the quality control on this message board. I think Murphy3 is a solid poster.

djbacklash, I have no problem with you banning Murphy3. djbacklash, you have shown to very reasonable and try to give every poster on this board a fair chance. djbacklash, this is your board, and you can do what you wish. However, I would like to see Murphy3 back on this board.

PVID~

I appreciate your comments. I'm sorry if it seems like I've been taking shots at murph lately. It seems whenever I try to explain my position, I'm &quot;taking a shot&quot; at him but that is simply not the case. With perhaps the exception of RCF (who if is logging on as RWB, will most certainly be banned), I've tried my best to be fair and impartial to all members. Whether or not you or anyone else believes that is up to you. Murph is not coming back so I have no reason to harbor any ill will towards him. There's no point in beating a dead horse. But when people continually post disparaging remarks regarding this board (which in turn is a reflection of both me and the mods here) and it's status of late, I WILL respond to them. I take it very personally when people talk trash about me and the mods when they know very little about the behind-the-scenes action and going-ons of the last few months. If you think this board is slow, fine then why don't you try and do something about it. But if you're going to do nothing but trash it and the mods every chance you get, then I suggest you go somewhere else. This board will live on, despite these roadbumps, and it will only grow from here on. Whether or not you want to be a viable part of it is up to you.

Has anyone see Murphy post on any other boards recently, or know where he hangs out now? I would never stop frequenting dallas-mavs.com just because Murph left, but it would be cool to hear from him every once in a while.

I talked to murph a while back - he's studying for his GMAT right now. I expect he'll pop up soon at one of the other sites.

madape, after Murphy3 was banned, I think I saw Murphy3 make some posts on dallasbasketball.com. I think I also saw Murphy3 make a post on mavtalk.com. However, I haven't seen Murphy3 make any posts since then. I guess Murphy3 is just taking some time off from posting on message boards.

The RWB thing is old. And stop bashing DJ guys. Every argument can be made about the Murphy3 case, but in the end it always comes down to that: this board is a free service provided by DJ for mavs fans. He has the right to do whatever he likes here. If you donīt like the place any more simply stay away. On the board being slow right now: yes it is, but just because there isnīt much new to talk about right now.
Besides that I kinda feel sorry for Murph. He tried to talk about the mavs on mavstalk but they rather discuss other stuff over there.

Red White and Blue has nothing to do with this thread, I came from another board like this it is at this time. A friend suggested the board to me, and said it was the best board around to talk Mavs. This is a Mavs board, and that's what I talk here, where did this &quot;clips&quot; stuff come from? I don't really remember talking about anything else but that. What the hell is going on here? This is a basketball board, talk basketball here please. If someone was banned, I am sure the proper people had valid reasons to do that. Enough of the BS, let's talk sports, Mavs in particular. This thread was rather good to some people felt the need to get it off topic. I want say names because I am sure you know exactly who you are. If I was the admin to this site, I wouldn't even waste my time replying to some of the posts that's thrown at him/her.

&quot;Murphy3 was sort of the quality control on this board.&quot;

I never thought this about Murph. I always thought of him as just another person who posted on this message board. It's sort of an insulting sentiment, to the moderators, if you think about. Nothing against Murphy3, I just never thought of him in that way, anymore than I think it's MY job to be quality control on this board.

David, it's not insulting to the moderators at all. My point was that Murphy3 wants people to back up what they post, which means more people will think about what they post before they post it. Murphy3 would ask people to use stats, logic, etc. to back up things that they posted. Murphy3 made about 10,000 posts on this message board, so Murphy3 would give his input in many of the threads.

I think the moderators do a great job at this message board. When I made my first post here, the moderators were very friendly to me. The moderators give everyone a clean slate here. The moderators have come up with new ways to try to solve any conflicts. I think the strikes idea is a good idea. I think that djbacklash said all of the moderators are talked to for their opinion, regarding any situation when someone may be banned. I have seen message boards that aren't moderated very well, and it shows. Dallas-Mavs.com is moderated very well.

I think the moderators do a good job and it IS their job, but it's not MY job, nor was it Murphy's job. I don't remember Murphy asking &quot;people to use stats, logic, etc. to back up things that they posted&quot;. That's not the guy I remember. I remember him posting a lot but if he did what you are saying, I must have skipped right over it. I tended to take a grain of salt with some of his posts, &quot;murph being murph&quot; and all that. I don't remember HIM as a big stat guy either but he did have his own form of logic. I remember him posting, sometimes, three times in a row as if to answer himself or add something to his previous train of thought rather than edit the original post. THAT will add up to your post count in a hurry if you do it often enough, and he did. Not being critical, just noticing.

David we could &quot;notice&quot; a few things about the way you post as well. But we won't because that would be starting trouble.

All I've asked is that everyone quit saying negative things about someone who is not here to defend themselves. Just be polite - if you don't have anything nice to say, then say nothing.

Yes, we could very easily &quot;notice&quot; things about me. The subject was quality control on the board and who provides it. I don't think I said anything negative or untrue. If it seemed that I was being negative, then let me say right now that I didn't intend for it to be. People tend to be glorified beyond the truth when they are no longer among us. I think that is the case here with the quality control sentiment.

I suppose this means we should stop saying negative things about athletes?

I better find that fat little leaguer and apologize.....

Come on Rhylan...that's not fair at all. It is low class to bash murph when he isn't here or able to defend himself. Totally low class. And it is just as low to bash dj at this point as well. I'm sick of all this bullshit going both ways.

If the subject was quality control then why all of the extra? None of that had anything to do with quality control, did it?

When someone mentions that Murphy made 10,000 posts AS IF they were quality laden, I thought that was a bit much. You can say Murphy is a heckofa nice guy. That he likes to talk Mavs. That he added quite a bit to the board. All of that would be true, but PVID seemed to be putting him on a pedestal that he didn't deserve. No negativity.

David, I never said all of Murphy3's posts were quality posts. I mentioned Murphy3 making about 10,000 posts, simply to show that Murphy3 has made many posts. Murphy3 has been making posts on this message board for a long time. When someone posts that much, it has an effect on most of the threads. I think most of Murphy3's posts were quality posts. However, I do see what you are saying. Some people on this message board might think Murphy3's posts were dumb.

Y'all need to get off of DJ's back on the Murphy thing... Most of y'all weren't even around to see what kind of problems the whole &quot;LAMOOO&quot; identity caused when the site was very young...
