News from August 19.

The NBA disapproved the new contract between Toni Kukoc and the Chicago
Bulls claiming that it circumvented the salary cap.  Kukoc had used

Not good news for Chris Webber, who was planning to do the same thing
win GS.  Looks like he won't get his $7 million a year just yet.

Anyone need a low post scorer?

hwn.

The Hornets are looking for another big man but I'm not sure Tisdale plays
the kind  of defense the Hornets would like to acquire. Personally, I think
the Hornets could stand another low post scoring threat like Tisdale who
could also get you a few boards.

I don't think Tis will become a Hornet unfortunately. I would say that Tisdale
would want more than the $1.1 mill slot the Hornets can offer, but now I'm
hearing Tisdale say that he'd be weilling to play for much less at Phoenix.
By the way, don;t the Suns have about 10 forwards now? :>
