Proof Simmons hates many other places before Portland

At about the 24:30 mark: Simmons: Deep dish pizza is disgusting Greenwald: It's horrible, it's not even pizza. Fact: If Simmons hated Portland, he'd say "Boutique Donuts are no good" or "Coffee sucks".

Alonzo Mourning is looking forward to working with Oden

"Extremely excited, extremely excited," Mourning said by phone, "because I understand the potential that he (Oden) has."

Asked if he plans to work directly with Oden, Mourning said, "I think we all, as an organization, are looking forward to working with him, developing him, so that he can be a part of this organization for years to come."

"I know that if healthy, the impact that he can have on this franchise," Mourning said. "Just him being 25 years old, I feel that the longevity of the possibility of him playing, that longevity will continue to stimulate a winning opportunity with the organization."

"The game is played from the inside out," he said. "The biggest acquisition this summer was Dwight Howard, and when you have a player that caliber that can play the game inside and draw attention to that painted area, that makes all of his teammates better. Roy Hibbert has that ability. Dwight Howard. There's very few guys that have that ability in the league."

Woj: Gerald Henderson on the move?

Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski reports the Bobcats might be looking for sign-and-trade offers for guard Gerald Henderson:

"After reaching an impasse in negotiations with restricted free-agent guard Gerald Henderson, the Charlotte Bobcats are discussing sign-and-trade possibilities with multiple teams, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
...
Henderson, 25, is one of the NBA's emerging young shooting guards, but Charlotte has been reluctant to offer him a market value that could push into the $7.5 million to $8.5 million range, front-office sources said."

Curious?

Is there a rule that would prevent you from, trading a player for a future Lottery pick in the next 5 drafts?

Knowing Canzano this might be nothing, but I thought it was at least worth passing along.
