Nets acquire Marquis Teague from Bulls

Both players have spent time in the D-League this season.

Teague was buried in the Bulls’ PG pecking order even with Derrick Rose out for the season, and didn’t help matters by shooting 24.2% from the field in limited playing time. He could be in line to scrape out a few minutes behind Deron Williams and Shaun Livingston in Brooklyn, especially with (also via Wojnarowski) Tyshawn Taylor headed to New Orleans. He’s a former first round pick, one of six Kentucky players to go in the 2012 draft, but he hasn’t lived up to his potential, so the Nets could just be taking a flier on a talented but underperforming player.

Shengelia is a 6’9 small forward from Georgia (the country, not the state) who has averaged just 1.5 points in 17 games with the Nets this season. He might see some minutes with Luol Deng no longer playing for the Bulls. Taylor’s best asset is his defense, and with the Pelicans a bit thin at the point behind Jrue Holiday, he’s a nice pickup for them, considering they only gave up a future draft pick.

KiddIn the midst of a frantic comeback and in desperate need of a win, Jason Kidd needed a timeout to call a play for his Brooklyn Nets against the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday.

Just one problem: he ran out of them in the fourth quarter.

No matter. There have been plenty of questions about his ability as a head coach with the Nets badly struggling out of the gates, but Kidd came up with one trick that probably deserves to be a Top 10 play of the day: 

Sheridan: Five Potential Trades That Make Sense

24 Comments

We are 48 hours away from the NBA trade deadline. Deals are being discussed, deals are going to happen, and deals are going to fall through.

Happens every year.

What makes this year different is the new collective bargaining agreement, with harsher luxury tax penalties on the horizon beginning with the 2013-14 season. The luxury tax line is going to act as a hard cap for all but the wealthiest owners – like guys who own gold mines in Siberia.

So expect to hear a lot of financial gobbledygook on Thursday night and Friday morning as NBA executives explain the moves they made.
