TRADE ACCEPTED

Due to Indiana and Portland being over the cap, the 15% trade rule is invoked. Indiana and Portland had to be no more than 115% plus $100,000 of the salary given out for the trade to be accepted, which did happen here. This trade satisfies the provisions of the Collective Bargaining Agreement.

It would happen in the offseason.

Lets see how the season finishes....but right now we cannot break this team up unless they offer us something amazing

so if we fail to make it outta the first round again....then we need to do a trade

If we're going to move Harrington, then why not straight up for Redd?

The real issue for me is the logjam of players we have. I get really nervous with a team built in such a way that defined roles are impossible for players 8-12.

i'm all for redd, but would milwaukee trade him? even for al? bucks fans i've talked with don't think so.

as for that portland deal, it would be great to get dale back, but frankly it sucks from our side. none of the players we're getting back is close to al in value. as far as bad contracts go, anderson's contract is just as bad as cro's. we're dealing al and freddie for players who would at most be complimentary.

actually, the only kind of trade that makes sense for the pacers now is that they should package several good players to get a great player, assuming one is available. we're deep, maybe a little too deep, that minutes are bound to become a problem. a quantity for quality swap is in order, something like a jalen rose deal in reverse.

As much as I would love to see DD back...pass. Now if it were Al for ..oh I dunno say Zach Randolph...I'd do that ina heartbeat.

Why? Zach plays the same position as JO. Plus he doesn't play the defense Al does. Plus he's been known to puff the weed.

Wouldn't work anyway, Al make over $4 million more than Zach.

If I was going to trade Al I would want back someone that would be an upgrade at another position, like Ray Allen. (Doesn't work either)

Or as I have said elsewhere on these fine boards, http://www.pacersdigest.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=147&sid=2327e25f89fccfcfbf0916f4c412c908 I would trade him for Crawford and Curry. (This trade does work) Wouldn't want to, but would have to take that deal even if it wrecked our changes at a title this year. (I think next year is when we really start having a good chance for a title.)

If I'm trading Al, I want a premium post player in return. The deal was with Portland...Randloph is their best post player... so that's who they'd have to give up to get him. That's what I was thinking Will.

So I'll ask this...straight up and IGNORING the cap problems...who would you take in trade for Al Harrington? And no Shaq and Duncan aren't options.

I certainly don't want Sheed either...too many personal problems there to mesh with Ron.

Derek Anderson is way too injury prone

Thanks for saying that for me. Anderson is a solid player but he's nothing special. The Pacers should just keep Al and wait for the offseason. Who knows? The Pacers might have a ring at that point.
