Camp's haven't even started yet and this seasons already become exciting. Over the past couple of days, three trades have been announced.
Dontell Jefferson (Dakota) for Denham Brown (Utah) -- This trade fills a need for both teams and I honestly don't know who got the better deal. Utah needed experience and to solidy their backcourt, and Dontell, over the past two seasons, has been a solid D-League player and already has a D-League championship. Denham Brown will is a great player with NBA experience and will be either the best sixth man in the D-League or an excellent insurance policy if Renaldo Major, who didn't play at all last season following heart surgery, isn't healthy.
Dwayne Mitchell (Iowa) for Patrick Sanders (Los Angeles) -- Wow is LA strong. With Dwayne Mitchell, Joe Crawford, and Brandon Heath, they have three solid players that were in LA camp. Patrick Sanders is a rookie out UC-Irvine, where he averaged 15 points a game last season.
Keith Closs (Tulsa) for Antoine Jordan (Idaho) -- I love Keith Closs. Apparently Brandon Barnett and the 66ers do not. Antoine Jordan was a fourth round pick that averaged 13 points playing in the Netherlands last season. I would rather have K-Closs who could average three blocks a game while he smokes cigarettes on the bench.
