It's done, with one slight change, and another
So long, Nate.
Because of a contract technicality involving Quincy Douby, the blockbuster four-team trade now sees Nathan Jawai headed to the
Memphis Gizzlies.Dallas Mavericks.
(The original Jawai mistake was mine, I misread some information; Memphis now gets a 2016 second-round pick from Toronto to make up for the fact they won't get Quincy Douby)
But the deal is done.
Douby signed a couple of 10-day contracts with the Raptors are the end of last season and another that covered the final couple of days of the regular season and under one of the more obscure clauses in the Collective Bargaining Agreement, he couldn't be dealt again in time to satisfy the needs of the Toronto-Dallas-Memphis-Orlando trade.
One league source termed it a "hiccup" that was resolved this morning.
And now that the official trade conference call with the league is over, the deal is done.
Again, it's Hedo Turkoglu, Antoine Wright and Devean George here, Shawn Marion and Kris Humphries and Nate to Dallas,
now Jawai a second-round pick and Jerry Stackhouse to the Grizzlies and a trade exception to Orlando.
Plan on a 4 p.m. news conference here.
