So the trade deadline pretty much passed without fuss.

There wasn’t the last minute superstar deal to send Twitter and the Net into a frenzy, which would have been great for us!

But reports have emerged over the last couple of days that a superstar trade ALMOST happened and if it wasn’t for some last minute nerves, well, we would have had that online frenzy and Twitter would have most likely exploded.

In return for J-Smoove, the Bucks would have sent the expiring contracts of Luc Mbah a Moute, Ekpe Udoh and Beno Urdih, plus a protected future first round draft pick to Atlanta.
