"There is truth to a discussion about Marion being swapped for Miller... nothing is close, nothing is pending... in most situations rarely does a deal get instant approval from both sides... its rarely "Hey I'll give you Kobe Bryant for Keith Bogans" - and you instantly make the deal... a lot of time there is so much parity in a move, or so much that could fail in the move that teams tend to let things simmer - sometimes its because others have to be involved in the decision... rarely does a deal get instantly done, and more times than not its simply about shopping for the best deal.
The floor on Brad Miller is Shawn Marion... now can the Kings do better than that? Thats where the hold up tends to be... this belief that maybe I can do better and keep shopping... I would say it this way, you move Brad Miller today, then find out tomorrow you could have gotten Kobe Bryant for him... you tend to lose your job that way.... Think about how bad Memphis got run over what they got for Pau Gasol - nothing gained by jumping too quick."
