NBA Round Up 10-23-08

Memphis Grizzlies - With the glut of point and shooting guards on the team, the Grizz could be entertaining trading Javaris Crittenton out of Memphis. It looks like a deal to the Magic is a possibility, but aren't there a few other teams that could use a starting caliber point guard? Golden State, New York Knicks, and the Phoenix Suns just to name a few. We'll see if Crittenton gets moved before the season starts.

Chicago Bulls - Bad news for Larry Hughes as he will be out for 6-8 weeks after dislocating his shoulder in a pre-season game last night against the TImberwolves. The Bulls have a glut at the guard spots and Hughes was one person that wasn't going to take nice to coming off the bench. This may solve rotation issues for the Bulls for the short time, but they have to find something to do with Hughes and more importantly Ben Gordon.

Washington Wizards - We've heard this before, but Agent Zero is ahead of schedule on his recuperating from surgery. The initial prognosis had Agent Zero sitting out until the beginning of the year, but he's mentioning the end of November now. Can someone save this guy from himself? Heal 100%, then take it slowly getting back on the court. The Wizards paid Arenas too much money to have him sitting on the bench in street clothes for any prolonged period of time.

Miami Heat - Shaun Livingston may finally step on a court and play in an NBA sanctioned game (albeit pre-season) for the first time since that horrible knee injury he suffered. I will say that I personally am hoping that he is able to play well and come back from that horrendous injury.

Utah Jazz - Matt Harpring is getting close to getting back on the floor for the Jazz. All that means is that everyone better get ready for a lot of elbows, pulling and grabbing. Harpring is a tough guy, who actually has pretty decent basketball skills. He was a star at Georgia Tech so many moons ago.
