Mike Bibby buyout unlikely

By Michael Lee

According to a person with knowledge of the situation, Mike Bibby is upset about leaving a playoff team in Atlanta to join a lottery team in Washington and is interested in receiving a buyout.

But while the topic has been discussed internally, a league source said Bibby would have to make a huge sacrifice of what's left of the $5.8 million he is owed this season, and the $6.4 million he will receive next season. Since that appears unlikely, Bibby is expected to be in uniform in Miami on Friday.

Bibby will wear the No. 00, after he switched from his original choice of No. 0, which happened to belong to another guy who made three all-star teams and won a playoff series in that uniform. Bibby has worn No. 10 his entire career, but it is retired for Earl Monroe.

Last season, Zydrunas Ilgauskas refused to play for the Wizards after he was dealt by Cleveland. Ilgauskas gave back $1.5 million or his remaining salary to return to the Cavaliers for an ill-fated championship run.

Perfect. Add a sulking vet to the know-nothing kids. Wall will have seen it all before he can drink it away. Does he play bourre?

Atlanta's offense is/was not fast paced. The barely average 97 ppg this season, and that was after new coach Larry Drew opened up the offense. Under Mike Woodson they played mostly half-court isolation for Joe Johnson, Crawford, or Smith. Atlanta was never a run-n-gun team.

Mike Bibby is terrible, on both offense and especially defense. If you are expecting him to be an upgrade over Hinrich, you're delusional. Fortunately, he will only be getting 8 minutes a game.

Good trade for the Wiz though. We weren't going anywhere next year, might as well pick up a mid 1st round pick and a take a flyer on Jordan Crawford for a downgrade to the backup PG slot.

Bibby is a David Falk client, and Falk was on CSN last night.

“I think number one you have to advise them to be professional. Trades are a part of being a professional athlete, they don’t always work out well. Now there’s about 27 games left in the season, he’ll be done in about six weeks, and then Ernie and I will sit down at the end of the season and evaluate what the future looks like, and it’s conceivable that he’ll get moved again. But I think for the next 27 games, he has to get over what personal disappointment he has in not being in a playoff environment and try to be a good mentor to young John Wall, be a good locker room guy. And Mike will do that. Mike’s a consummate professional. There’s no getting around the fact it’s not fun to go from a playoff team to a non-playoff team, but that’s one of the drawbacks of professional sports.” via Truth About It

Clearly EG is an idiot. He traded two players that he acquired for 3 players that are guards. If any of these guys stay this season, they'll probably be gone in the near future regardless. That's what EG is the master of....bringing in players just to ship them out later, all the while selling the fans hope and giving him an excuse season after season for how putrid the team is.

If he wants to win, he'd accept a $1 buyout and sign with the Heat for the minimum. My guess is that he'd rather get overpaid for the last 1.5 years of his contract. I can't say I blame him.

You may (or may not) have noticed that they made a concerted effort to push the pace against the Sixers. Um, yeah.

It helps to play fast paced if you can rebound the ball. Plus, it helps if you have players who like to run *both* ways.

That comment is why you are not a GM. You pretty much stated the whole purpose of the trade and made it sound bad. What about the 1st rounder they get? I would say you are clearly an idiot if you thought they brought in Kirk for the long haul. I think everyone who knows Bball saw this coming when Kirk was signed. Trade bait....

I really think it's time to blow this whole thing up. Players calling out players is proof that these guy aren't responding to Flip's coaching. Ted had better be careful if he thinks he's gonna continue to turn a profit with this group of . . . "anything but" NBA players. VC looked mighty empty the last home game. Heck, it hard to watch them for free on Comcast Network. Only keeper here is John Wall but he shouldn't be untouchable either because I would have taken Deron Williams if the trade was offered. Instead of trying to get back draft picks, they really should think about getting a "proven" veteran here, We went from one unhappy frustrated player to another. As a fan, how can you want to root for the effortless product they put on the floor every night? Only Ted can stop the bleeding!

I disagree with this point. I really think Ernie wanted to keep "Curt" here moreso to mentor J Wall. Wanting to make moves before the trade deadline and the only player anybody wanted from this team being KH probably made it the only move he could make. These guys aren't responding to Flip so changes need to be made. Being down by 25-40 points consistantly in back to back games is unacceptable. The writting should be on the wall if look at Jordan and E Tapscott's history but I don't know who would have success with this bunch.

Why can't both be true? A mentor for a little AND eventual trade bait? The first thing I thought when we got Kirk was "good in the short run for Wall" and "good come the trade deadline when other teams' desperation is at its highest."

Pretty well played if you ask me, although, could we have moved Kirk to a team just slightly worse than the Hawks pick? Nitpicking, good move. If we just could have moved Blatche...but he will be gone soon enough. Sometimes in life you just have to suck it up a little longer and continue to issue public statements like 'we are not interested in trading Andray, a rising young player in this league.' Obviously the right trade wasn't there, and if you look around the league there weren't any perimeter 4's moved, only BIG men. Green/Wallace are 3's and TMurph was all about that 'spiring contract nikka...

".....Clearly EG is an idiot. He traded two players that he acquired for 3 players that are guards. If any of these guys stay this season, they'll probably be gone in the near future regardless......" DC_MANN88

He got back-up where it was needed right now; at the one [BIBBY], two [CRAWFORD], and three [EVANS]. He gave up a guy who was going nowhere in a WIZARDS uni [ARMSTRONG], and one that couldn't perform the miricles needed to transform the WIZARDS into a decent team [HINRICH].

ATLANTA got what they needed; back-up help at one, and tough, intelligent, perimeter defensive player at the two.

We got future potential at the two [CRAWFORD], and best of all, another bite of the apple in the draft [ currently 22.....yes-s-s-s].

Overall, I'd say we were even on this trade.

No one expects BIBBY to bail, and give back his roughly 9 million. I mean where is this has been gonna' get a contract like that again? A liabilty on both ends of the court, he's done in the NBA. I thought so when he went to ATL in the first place.

MO EVANS doesn't give the appearance of being much better, and his contract IS up in 27 g. Bye-bye.

But JORDAN CRAWFORD has potential. If he isn't already brain-dead, and/or doesn't become that way being mentored by NY, he may become our two of the future, something I can't say about NICK.

AND.....bonus, we get a another pick in the first round [currently 22].

Do you even know what you are talking about or are you talking out of your @$$? Kirk was trade bait for 1 has been and 2 nobodies along with a low draft pick in a weak draft year?

Look at EG's track record on trades, player signings, and lottery picks. Where is the team now based on that track record? How many do overs does EG get? If you can't figure that out, you're more of an idiot than you present yourself to be.

LOL! A few threads ago, Mike Lee reported that Flop, in his crack haze, was preaching to the team about how close they were to a playoff spot despite '0-for-xx' in away games. Now, you have this idiot quote from EG that is the opposite of what Flop was trying to encourage the team to do.

"I think we're in a different stage," Grunfeld said earlier Wednesday. "We started the whole process last year and I think we've come a long way. A lot of things have happened. We've put ourselves in a very good financial situation moving forward. We've added some good young pieces to the mix and I think our future looks good. If we can add some more pieces to that, we will."

"We're all very competitive and we want to win. And when you're not winning as much as you want to, it's frustrating," Grunfeld said. "Knowing that we have a young team, we didn't have any expectations, as far as wins and losses. Obviously, we'd like to win every game that we go into. Again, what we're looking for is for our players to improve and give a good, solid effort and be competitive."

Ian Thomsen on the Deron Williams deal and the future:

"Two trends are likely to be set forth by this trade: (1) the Jazz (No. 8 in the West before the Williams trade) will probably fall out of the playoffs without their leading playmaker and scorer, and (2) the owners of the mid- and small-market teams like Utah will be more galvanized than ever to create a system that can enable them to retain their best players."

"After years of watching talent seep to the Western conference, the big Eastern markets are now hoarding players before the lockout. The Knicks are suddenly relevant with Carmelo Anthony and Amar'e Stoudemire, while Williams promises to help the Nets challenge the Knicks' ownership of the New York market. Boston, Miami and Chicago are all enormously strong."

"A lot of owners can't compete with those franchises. But those frustrated owners are going to have their say at the bargaining table, and the players aren't going to like the potential solutions: A hard salary cap, a franchise tag, salary rollbacks that may unduly affect the richest players."

"These are extreme times for the NBA: The imbalance of talent has made the league extremely popular, thanks to the promise of highly-competitive rivalries among the the deeply-stocked contenders at the top of each conference; but it has also made a majority of the owners extremely miserable, because the league is growing popular at their expense."

"The biggest cities should grab the best players while they can, because on July 1 the vault slams shut. A new era of parity will come forth, and maybe the Jazz can look forward to the day when they won't have to trade their franchise-defining star."

Dear Mr. Bibby,
To borrow a quote from former Pres. Clinton "I feel your pain."
You may feel six weeks as a Wizard is cruel and unusual punishment but do keep in mind the shame and misery many of us that are fans of this team have suffered for the better part of thirty years.

Remember also that we are not paid to follow this team as you are. For us, we pay for the right to be loyal to this franchise, both financially and emotionally.

So keep your chin up and take comfort in the knowledge that within two years this embarassment will end for you. As for us fans, there is no end in sight.

I'll be a the Verizon Center for the Chicago game. It most likely won't be a pretty sight but I'll be there cheering you on.

Take a minute during the game and cast you eyes out to the crowd that will be heavily enumerated with Chicago fans, and look at the faces of those really got the short end of the stick.

The Wiz fans.

Thank you.

First of all, Bibby is no ways near the player he once was and on the down side of being out of the league. His rec is solely based on the player he once was. Reading comments On Atlanta J-C, 99% are glad he got traded away. If this organization does right by it's players or had any visions of winning, they wouldn't be laughing stock of league. EG trying to save money for Ted as he continues to say "Look how much money saved moving forward". Nobody wants to play with this current group of "almost NBA players". You can say your courting players in free agency but it's a 2 way street, players have to want you as much as you want them.

Everyone here knows that the success of any of these deals is entirely based on packaging the picks in a trade or getting a second high draft pick. Anything outside of the the top 5 or 10 picks is either a project or a lucky pick. "Stockpiling" young players with potential is not an appropriate goal. I will wait until after the draft this summer, but a certainly would rather have someone else making those draft picks. Ernie is middle of the pack at best and this is a critical time for the franchise that they have blown up.

Bibby is washed up at 35.

Who really cares what he wants?

He probably wanted to join the Lakers by the trade deadline to win a ring shooting three pointers.

But with his salary it wasn't going to happen.

So, if he wants a buyout he is going to have to give back some cash.

What does he want more, a ring or money?

Over 13 years you would think he had some cash in the bank already.

Poor disposable Kirk. I watched him play brilliantly on a less than brilliant Chicago team for years. He was a good point guard captain, but there was no longer any necessity for him once Chicago got Derek Rose. Same for him in DC, after the Wizards got Wall. Too bad he is elbowed out of his lustre by Rose and now Wall. OK as a placeholder, but still not valid place for Kirk.
