League to look at Stackhouse's comments

And the Mavs are knee deep in this one now...

http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/news;_yl...yhoo&type=lgns

Quote:
NEW ORLEANS As the New Jersey Nets and Dallas Mavericks feverishly worked to convince Devean George to join in the trade for Jason Kidd on Thursday, there suddenly loomed another issue that could obliterate the proposed deal: the loose lips of Jerry Stackhouse.

The NBA will investigate the possibility the Mavericks and Stackhouse violated league rules with a prearranged agreement for the forward to return to Dallas after reaching a contract buyout in New Jersey and sitting out the 30-day waiting period, sources said. Several league sources said the NBA will consider forbidding Stackhouse to re-sign with the Mavericks this season as punishment for public comments the forward made on Wednesday that suggested tampering could have occurred.

If it comes to that, the deal is dead. Dallas owner Mark Cuban wouldn't complete the trade for Kidd without a belief that he could bring back Stackhouse this season. Ultimately, sources say, Mavericks management decided that losing Stackhouse would be too hard of a hit to the Mavericks' depth, too steep a price to pay for Kidd.

For the Mavericks, the trouble started when Stackhouse, 33, gave an interview to the Associated Press on Wednesday that suggested there was a plan for how his trade, buyout and eventual re-signing with Dallas would unfold.

Stackhouse said that he was only part of the deal "to make the numbers work."


What's more, he said, "I feel great. I get 30 days to rest then I'll be right back. I ain't going nowhere."

Even if George changes his mind on Friday about agreeing to waive his "Early Larry Bird Rights" and accept the trade to New Jersey, sources said the league office will not immediately approve the trade. With angry rival executives across the league expressing outrage over Stackhouse's comments, as well as the NBA's own issues and suspicions with the comments, senior VP of basketball operations Stu Jackson is obligated to look deeper into the matter.

The NBA doesn't allow such prearranged agreements. The rest of the league is required to have a fair chance to sign Stackhouse in the 30 days before he is eligible to re-sign with the Mavericks. It doesn't help appearances that Stackhouse and Kidd share the same agent, Jeff Schwartz.

When several league executives read Stackhouse's comments on Wednesday, they were irate and privately promised to protest if Stackhouse ends up passing on leaguewide offers and returns to the Mavericks.

"It sounds like a side deal, doesn't it?" one Eastern Conference executive said. "The league will have a lot of explaining to do if Stackhouse goes back to Dallas."

Another general manager said, "I thought it was the most blatant statement someone could make about a trade. I wouldn't be surprised at all if the league disallowed Stackhouse to go back to Dallas. Stackhouse is too impulsive and is prone to say stuff like that which could really end up hurting Dallas."

Finally, a third GM said, "It's caused a lot of people to wonder how they could get away with that, how those kind of pre-existing arrangements can be allowed."

For now, it is clear the trade that would send Kidd and Malik Allen to Dallas for George, Stackhouse, Devin Harris, DeSagana Diop and Maurice Ager, two first-round picks and $3 million is stuck. Before the Mavericks' 109-97 loss to the Suns in Phoenix on Thursday night, agent Mark Bartelstein insisted that his client hadn't changed his mind about vetoing his trade to the Nets.

"There's nothing new," Bartelstein said. "Right now, he's just focusing on playing for the Mavericks."

Between now and next Thursday's trade deadline, the Nets and Mavericks are exploring scenarios that still include George and a sign-and-trade with Keith Van Horn, but the Stackhouse case could make everything else irrelevant. Across the league, there's a belief that Stackhouse revealed too much with his words and the NBA plans to take a hard look and ask the obvious question: Is there strong enough evidence of a pre-existing agreement between the Mavericks and Stackhouse that deserves punishment? If they league decides there is, and refuses to let him re-sign with the Mavericks, the results could be devastating for Dallas.

No trade.

No Kidd.

It would be a steep price to pay for the loose lips of Jerry Stackhouse.

Re: League to look at Stackhouse's comments

I honestly think the deal is dead now. No way the league is going to allow this. Too many owners/execs will come with pitchforks and torches to the steps of the NBA front office demanding blood.

Re: League to look at Stackhouse's comments

why is this an issue. i'm sure these kind of arrangements are made all the time. i dont see anything wrong with it.

few years back i rememebr the nets traded for elden campbell then cut him just in time for him to go back to detroit. maybe that wasn't pre-arranged, but he was cut specifically so he could go back to detroit.

No.

It's terrible.

It's horrible.

It cannot be allowed in the league.

It completely sacrifices the integrity of this league.

:biggrin:



PLEASE KILL THIS TRADE!

if I remember correctly, Dallas only lost in the first round once (last year) people talk about it like it happens all the time. Two years ago Dallas was in the finals, and the year before that they lost in game 7 in the semi's, and I believe they went to the conference finals before that. They are the only team in three years to beat the spurs in a best of 7 series.

Sorry guys, only one teams gets the, the rest just have to compete.

Re: League to look at Stackhouse's comments

Um... so, what is Devin supposed to think now? How can you go back to playing with the same intensity for a team that put you in a package for another point guard? For Devin, it's pretty much Dallas saying, "well, too bad we couldn't get Kidd. You'll have to do."

Re: League to look at Stackhouse's comments

Thanks. Bringing Kidd back to Dallas can end up being the most stupid thing Cuban has done. Just look back when the Mavericks had Nash, Finley and Dirk. This will be the same situation but with older players. That combo didn't work out, did it?

I know, that surely has to hurt the guys confidence. I'm not suprised, it was stupid making those sort of comments.

Nope...

Devin should think "I almost got shipped out for #1 PG out of East. I better work harder."

As for Kidd, "D'oh! I guess I shouldn't have clocked out so early."
