Payton doesn't want to be a Celtic

Yao reaches breaking point
Houston Chronicle

Isiah takes last shot at Dampier
New York Daily News

Their chances are considered slim, if not none, but the Knicks could find out as soon as today if Erick Dampier is going to wind up as their starting center for next season... One person with knowledge of the trade talks said last night that Memphis is out of the running, adding, 'We all expect Dampier to go to Atlanta. They've got more money than anybody else.' ...While Thomas keeps his fingers crossed on Dampier, the Knicks are almost certain to re-sign Vin Baker this week.

Stojakovic skipped out on the Olympics, but won't cop out on the Kings
San Antonio Express-News

Trust this, though: Stojakovic will be firing up that flick-of-the-wrist jumper in purple and black Kings garb once again, just as Carter is going to open the season in Toronto, and Allen in Seattle.

Payton doesn't want to be a Celtic

Can you blame him? They haven't been making the moves to make them legitimate contenders. That's what he's looking for at this point in his career. I'd love it if he ends up in minnesota, except for the fact that they'd have to give up on Cassell...

Williams a tough call for O'Connor, Jazz

Keep him, keep him, keep him. Weve got a quality young team here, another playoff run of 20+ years is not out of the question...
