As of this writing, here’s all that’s gone down at the NBA trade deadline :
1) The Blazers are sending G Juan Dixon (above) to Toronto in exchange for swingman Fred Jones.
2) For Anthony Johnson, it’s like going from the penthouse to the outhouse. The 32 year old guard will begin his 3rd tour of duty with Atlanta, having been traded from Dallas in exchange for a 2nd round pick.
3) It looks as though Jason Kidd, Vince Carter, Andruw Bynum, Channing Frye, Mike Bibby, Bonzi Wells, Pau Gasol, Dolph Schayes and the ghost of Yinka Dare have all survived the afternoon without a change of address.
The Boston Herald’s Dave Wedge reports that Delonte West’s lady-friend / partner-person “allegedly choked and bit him and tried to slash her own wrists with shards of glass because he dumped her.”
“Taylor told police she wasn™t trying to kill herself but was cutting herself to show West she wasn™t œ(expletive) around about their relationship. She said she was angry because West™s friends and family had been staying with them and were œpicking on her.
Jackie Christie and Joumana Kidd were unavailable for comment. I hope.
