Ok, well I don't know if everyone knows this but a while back there was an article where Brad basically said he wanted to retire in Indiana. That it was his favorite place ever, etc. etc. He has been playing worse for the kings than when he got here, and recently he hasn't been playing well at all. His defense is awful now. I'm starting to wonder if he's kind of doing the same thing Carter did with the Raps and Peja did earlier in the season. Would the pacers want Brad back?

As a kings fan I can say that the kings need better interior D and more athleticism up front. That's not really a problem in Indiana because the pacers have Jermaine. I want Kenyon Martin(a lot of kings fans don't but they don't look at how he brings good defense, shotblocking, athleticism, and intensity). The nuggets need another shooter. Anyways here is something I thought up even though I'm sure a lot of people will find holes in it:

The kings need a backup PG BADLY, preferably one with a lot of experience. The kings help their defense and get some more athleticism. The nuggets need a shooter pretty badly, they get Potapenko who expires in 2007 and SJax who can shoot pretty well. The pacers get Brad Miller who really wants to play there, but I'm not sure if it's fair for them. Feedback would be appreciated from me-a depressed kings fan.

It doesn't make sense any way I look at it to me.

Sacto need a backup PG which AJ gives them. But why would they want Kenyon Martin? That'd give them Abdur-Rahim, Thomas, and Martin at the 4 with not legit 5 that I know of.

Pacers get Brad Miller back, which we all know would be wonderful. But if they made this trade, it'd be JO and Miller starting obviously. Which means Harrison gets nowhere near the PT he has been and the project is over. With Foster, Croshere, and Granger also in the stable it screams playing time headaches.

Getting rid of Jax is something I'm a fan of, but our backcourt would take a huge hit in this trade. Tinsley, Saras, and Freddie (if he re-signs) is what we'd have. Maybe a little Peja at the 2 but we all know Peja can't play guard.

As for Denver; now that I think about it, that's not too bad a deal for them.

The kings could always move Shareef to a team he'd start on. He and Kenny hate eachother so that doesn't mix well. They're both not very good on D. Basically the one with the most value(Reef) would probably end up getting moved for a center.

I'm not sure what to do about the pacers part of the trade if you think it won't work. Brad would be better in Indiana than here in Sacramento. I like him as a player and I want to see him go where he will play his best instead of here where he has his weaknesses exposed. Indiana's backcourt is pretty thin unless Peja/Granger can play SG. Obviously can't add much more salary to the trade or it doesn't work.

Yeah, you are barking up the wrong tree if you think there will be any Brad Miller interest in this forum.
