   Tax Payers, Trade Kickers, And Other Deadline Day Bookkeeping

Cleveland finally did something with their angry owner's willingness to spend, taking on Baron Davis's exorbitant outstanding salary, and getting a top 10 pick for their troubles. The upcoming draft is going to be truly bad - we're talking 2000 calibre bad - but nevertheless, every draft has talent in it. Even the crap ones.

Meanwhile, L.A. ends the entirely unproductive B-Diddy era, and opens up $6 million in 2012 cap room.

A lot of the candidates are obvious and inevitable, some perhaps less so. Here's a potential list:

- Cleveland: Baron Davis - Got the #1 overall pick for taking him on, and will be rid of him for almost no penalties. If only the Clippers had thought of that.
