Folks over in Houston land are reporting that their local radio show has reported that:

Rice to Houston is a done deal. They're simply waiting for league approval.

As an aside: I still do miss the days when NBATalk gave you updates during the day. Today's Insider just doesn't cut it.

Martin,
I agree with the NBAtalk updates during the day. It was great, but those Cheap SOB's had to go and make $$$. Anyhow, from what I've been seeing a lot of Houston people think they're getting ripped on this trade. I don't see that. I think it's pretty even from all sides. Rice is a much better shooter than Anderson and Francis/Mobley/Rice looks pretty deadly.

There must be another trade coming

The Knicks have maintained that they would not obtain another point guard without trading one away. Look for the Golden State deal to go through. I think that the Knicks organization is just keeping quiet until all the specifics are worked out.

Hmmm, one downer about this trade: no more "Long Grain Rice" comments from Clyde.

In coming to the Knicks, Anderson gets a six-year contract valued at approximately $42 million, ESPN's David Aldridge reported.

So that's $7 mill annually??? Is he really worth that money?

I am praying that Aldridge is wrong on this one. Thats way too much.

The knicks just screwed themselves again... both these guys are long term. $7 mil/yr for a sub? Great, exactly what we need, another LJ
