A lot happened over the weekend, so we want to catch you up quickly. We'll have more on each of these stories in a bit. But while you're waiting, here's a little poem for you to get caught up.
The Mavs are chasing Haslem to make them seem bigger .
While the Nets are tapping Morrow to pull the big trigger .
The Pistons and Ben Wallace wed for two more years .
While Nellie brought in DWright as the latest wing he'll bring to tears.
The Nets brought in Petro to perplex us much more .
Then they tagged Jordan Farmar after Phil showed him the door.
Zydrunas Ilgauskas misses the King .
And Matt Barnes at this point is just chasing a ring .
The Baby Bears added a stopper in Allen.
And then the Suns traded Leandro Barbosa and some trade exceptions for Hedo Turkoglu and Josh Childress, while Toronto then swapped out the trade exception they got from the Suns who got it from New York for Boris Diaw in exchange for almost nothing.
That last one doesn't rhyme because it doesn't make any sense, whatsoever.
Oh, and Jesse Jackson compared Dan Gilbert to a slave owner . You may have heard about that one already.
