Ooooooh, domino

One trade goes down a couple weeks before the trading deadline — Pau Gasol to the Lakers — and the dominoes continue to fall like, well, dominoes. Wednesday, about 24 hours before the deadline, the Spurs are about to finalize a deal to obtain Kurt Thomas from Seattle for Brent Barry, Francisco Elson and a 2009 first-round pick, a league source told Yahoo.com.[ep
Thomas isn’t Gasol, Shaq or Jason Kidd, and is strictly a role player at this point in his career. But this move shouldn’t be underestimated. Thomas is a tough post defender and has always had an excellent 15-foot jumper, which should take some heat off Tim Duncan at both ends of the floor.
Looks like a typical Spurs move: more smart than sexy.
