Hasheem Thabeet, The Memphis Grizzlies as buyers trade deadline? Rockets GM Daryl Morey for negotiating Hasheem Thabeet draft bust? You’re all crazy or something to sell. The next thing you’ll tell me that someone was willing to take Baron Davis off the Clippers … What? Okay, I’m not sure I understand anything anymore. A flurry of activity at the NBA trade deadline brings back Shane Battier in Memphis-A at least briefly. The Grizzlies acquired Battier, an impending free agent from the Houston Rockets for Hasheem Thabeet and a future first-round choice.

Several teams from the West improved, as the above Thunder and the Blazers, who added Gerald Wallace. But GM several teams “have not done their franchises favors. Houston traded Aaron Brooks and Shane Battier and obtained Hasheem Thabeet and Goran Dragic in return. Although the Rockets do not have much of a competitor or a rival division anyway, with the trades today, they are no more than a poke in the West.
As regards the movements of the player, the Spurs will be watching closely to see that players are willing to repurchase their teams. Joel Przybilla and Troy Murphy are among the names mentioned, and if the Spurs believe that a player can help them, they’ll probably look at some options. They may even welcome the players outside the waiver wire and call up D-League players, but I doubt anyone of much significance that will play a major role for the Spurs will be on silver and black in a near future. PA sources said that the rockets sent point guard Aaron Brooks in Phoenix and forward Shane Battier in Memphis in separate agreements Thursday that guard Goran Dragic to center Hasheem Thabeet and Houston, according to a person familiar with the specific trades. The Rockets also get first-round pick two teams and rookie guard vessel Ish Smith to the Grizzlies.
