[Update: Ugh. According to ESPN.com, a Hornets deal fell through because they filed it 5 minutes after the deadline.
Brent Barry's father, Rick, has a radio show in the Bay Area. Today he announced on air that his son was about to get traded and the rumors started flying. Golden State fans starting throwing out names like Derek Fisher and Mike Dunleavy. I knew that was bullshit because the Spurs aren't going to add somebody with a horrible long term contract. Not to mention I wouldn't stand for Derek Fisher as a Spur and Pop and me are tight.
Obviously the trade fell through. According to Johnny Ludden the Spurs were to acquire J.R. Smith, the 20 year old athletic shooting guard for the Hornets who has found himself in Byron Scott's doghouse. Well fuck me. It's not often you can trade a nearly broken down spare part for a young, athletic guy with oodles of potential. Looks like we're stuck with The Cooler until at least the summer.
