Ric Bucher was interviewed on ESPNEWS earlier. He said that Artest had been or will be "deactivated" and the Pacers have ten days to trade him. It sounded as if he was distinguishing that "inactive" position that he is currently in which, under the new CBA, the team can change on a day-to-day basis.

Did anyone else hear this? It makes a big difference if we only have ten days to trade him. Obviously, it will be better for the other players so they can breathe a sigh once they're not included in the deal.

I saw Bucher on ESPN News, but I didn't see those comments. Bucher did make it clear that the Ron for Peja thing probably won't happen.

But I think there is a pretty good chance Ron will be traded within 10 days. I base that on DW's comments. If you read between the lines, I think DW has something in the works

Now now now, wouldn't want people confused about who really runs the franchise. I went ahead and fixed it for you. ;)

Um, except TMac wasn't a certified headcase with dubious trade value.

The quicker the better for the players on our team... Now lets just hope we can get a quality trade in that time period... but I'm confident in Walsh/Bird...

Somebody wanna explain that again...I don't quite get what's being said there.

IS it that once we put him inactive we have to activate him within 10 days...or what? What happens if we don't...but what was that change day-to-day? Sorry but I'm a bit adleminded on this.

He'll remain on the inactive list through this week, and I've told him he doesn't have to come to practice. The reason for that is we will pursue trades. And I'm not going to know for a while exactly what the situation is going to be.

Yeah just like I think it was Btown pointed out.

10 days is the time from now that Pacers play three games.
After 10 days is the fourth game that Artest would be on the Inactive List.
And something about in this situation you can only be on the Inactive list for three games?

Artest definitely hurt his trade value, but the longer this goes on (up to a point), the better it looks for us. There are a lot of mediocre teams that will see Artest as their ticket to a serious playoff push, especially out West where teams 3-9 are so bunched up. Competition among these teams could drive his price high enough that we get maybe .85 on the dollar, which is about all you can hope for right now. For instance, I really do think Odom is within our grasp. He's not the player Artest is, but he's very good, and won't be a distraction.

For example, once Tinsley is back on the bench, I'm sure Eddie Gill will spend the rest of the season on IL, or at least until we suffer another injury or illness with one of our PGs.

I think this is a different inactive list... like the T.O. type... Correct me if I'm wrong, I'm just guessing... otherwise it wouldn't make sense. <o:p></o:p>

Sooooo, possibly as long as 3 or 4 days.

:nod: and another thing, the Peja Trade has not been brought to the table yet.
