Elton Brand ruptures Achilles: And, just like that, the Clippers' season is ALREADY over.
Calvin Johnson signs, goes camping: And, just like that, the Lions' offense is MUCH better.
Juan Carlos Navarro traded by the Wizards to the Grizzlies, reuniting JCN with buddy Pau Gasol. Memphis gave up a conditional first-rounder (Lottery-protected next year -- a lock to happen, and Top 3-protected in 2009, so my question is: What happens when the Grizz are in the Lottery next year and the Top 3 in '09? When do the Wizards get that pick, and if they get it in 2010, how does that possibly help a team that wants to contend in the East NOW?) Navarro joins the studly, if undersized, Memphis backcourt log-jam with Mike Conley and Kyle Lowry. Prediction: JCN gets quality minutes, particularly late in games.
Neifi Perez gets 80-game suspension after third strike on banned stimulants. (Really: He can't switch to decaf?)
