I'm assuming Harris+Nene would put us back over the lux tax without someone like Jackson going out right?
i think denver is just stalling to see if anyone wants to fire off a better offer. they know that njn offer is pretty good/as good as it will get. they are seeing if philly would do something stupid like iggy + holiday or turner for melo. i bet this goes down. maybe not with us, but the basis of njn and den will. plus, melo can see that being the face of the brooklyn franchise when the knicks suck isn't all that bad.
And as far as the Bobcats not making the playoffs, a year ago we still didn't have Jackson, and we only had TT for 20+ games. Raymond needs to be replaced (even if by committee) and our Center position is not that much different than a year ago (our expectations were just higher last year).
Harris changes the PG spot. LB will do something to change the Center position too (prior to the trade deadline).

Waiting..... and waiting...... and waiting still more. At least the new season of Dexter starts tonight on Shotime!
Face it, our Bobcats are snake bit and will never get anybody of real substance in ANY trade. At least not this season.
Back to the subject at hand, I have to think Denver is going to cave when they realize they will not receive a better offer anywhere than the one currently on the table. Or they can suffer like Toronto and Cleveland when Melo bolts.
