B-Ball news aplenty today

AI is a free agent once again, as all of those rumours that he won't accept his new role as a 6th man came to the forefront today. He was officially released by the Memphis Grizzlies.

It is really unfortunate that Iverson has to go through this poor press. I wish he would have played through the situation because he really is better than Mike Conley. I also thought the Grizz were a good fit for him roster wise, I liked the threesome of Gay, Mayo and AI. But oh well i guess now the only question is will AI retire? My guess is he jumps on board with a good team for a playoff push, maybe on a good team he could deal with being 6th man...

While the Stephen Jackson rumours came to an end as well - he was shipped from Golden State to the Bobcats. The trade involved Jackson and underachieving point guard Acie Law being sent to Charlotte in return for shut down defender Raja Bell and Vladimir (this dude still plays in the league) Radmanovic.

Interesting occurrences - but all these teams are pretty irrelevant in the grand scheme of things. The Bobcats could really use a Jackson type of player - someone who can actually put the ball in the hoop and Golden State just acquired a defender...WHAT? But as I mentioned these transactions just end some meddling rumours that have been floating around.
