The owner of the Pistons has said that he was extremely disappointed with Brown for advising the Cavs etc and talking of New York while he was coaching the pistons.
He is apparently free to coach this year, he took a buyout of 7 million of the 20 he would have been owed to be allowed to take up a job straight away. I'm impressed by the spin Detroit have been able to put on this. He asked for and received permission to talk to the Cavs (and it was for the job of GM/president of basketball operations, not as coach), back when he and Detroit ownership thought there was a good chance that he would be unable to coach next season for health reasons, but that seems to have been lost. The Knick thing also seemed to be to be an innocuous comment that got blown out of all proportion. I think the Pistons will have to improve anyway next year, they only made the finals because Wade got injured,and next year the Pacers will be back as well.

According to his agent he took slightly less money for the opportunity to win a championship (3 years, 12 million). LeBron obviously wasn't enough of a draw.

Thats a good signing for the Nets. They'll be lining up Kidd, Jefferson, Carter and Abdur Rahim next year, they should be strong as well. There may finally be some balance coming back to the East. Three legitimate title contenders in the Heat, Pacers and Pistons, an outsider in the Nets and up and comers in Chicago, Washington and especially Cleveland. The Spurs, Suns, Mavs and Rockets should balance the top three in the east nicely, with the Kings, Lakers and Nuggets all being decent as well. (I'm assuming Jackson has an impact in LA - I may be entirely wrong). Overall the Spurs and Suns will probably still be the teams to beat.

And the Knicks get their man, at a bit over 10 million dollars a year. Gonna be a tough job getting that motley crew back to the playoffs. Larry Brown with his "play the right way" attitude, Stephon Marbury and Jamal Crawford with their "gimme ball, wanna shoot" attitude. There's no way they're both on the roster by the Feb trade deadline.

The fact that he's not a fan of young players either (see Darko) doesn't bode well for the 3 draft picks of the Knicks this season. I think Channing Freye could be a decent addition for them this season. Can't see robinson getting much playing time with Marbury around

Been a busy day in the NBA.. The heat have made a few great additions. Antoine Walker, Jason Williams and James Posey.. They gave up Eddie Jones, Rasual Butler and Michael Doleac...
Sacramento got Bonzi Wells for Bobby Jackson and Greg Ostertag..
Nets will prob get Shareef and Jeff McGinnis..
Also looks like Joe Johnson will leave the SUns for Atlanta (who says money talks?)
Lakers get Kwame Brown and another bum from Washington for Caron Butler and Chucky Atkins

The Heat just have to hope they haven't overcooked it. Shaq was complaining about how many shots he was getting in the playoffs last year, imagine what he'll be like if Walker doesn't change his form. Overall probably worth the risk. Williams will be good because they won't have to rely on him to handle the ball in the tight spots. Wade can be moved to the point when necessary. The Nets are really bulking up. McInnis will take court time pressure off Kidd and Reef should fit in quite well, along the lines of Wallace in Detroit (although not quite as good). I'd say they're legit contenders for the East at this stage. It was really the All Star break before Kidd was fit last season, and they should come out fighting this time. Kidd was disgusted when they penny pinched and let Kenyon Martin go, but he certainly can't have any complaints now.

The East will be as good ,if not better, competitively speaking anyway. Miami, Detroit, Indiana, New Jersey, Chicago and to a lesser extent a young and promising Boston team as well as Washington if they cope without Hughes

Abdur-Rahim has failed his physical, so its not certain that he's going to New Jersey.
