I'm reposting this trade scenario to see what, if anything, everyone thinks about it. Personally, I think this would be a great final piece for our Pacers.

Stephen Jackson
6-8 SG 16.4 ppg, 3.9 rpg, 2.8 apg in 35.9 minutes
Jeff Foster
6-11 C 5.9 ppg, 9.1 rpg, 0.8 apg in 25.1 minutes
John Edwards
7-0 C 1.8 ppg, 1.2 rpg, 0.1 apg in 7.4 minutes

P.J. Brown
6-11 PF 9.0 ppg, 7.3 rpg, 1.2 apg in 31.8 minutes
Ben Gordon
6-3 SG 16.9 ppg, 2.7 rpg, 3.0 apg in 31.1 minutes

Analysis: We get rid of SJax, in return we pick up similar production (albeit losing considerable height, while gaining considerable speed). I hate seeing Foster go, but under this trade we'll pick up similar production at the back up PF/C spots. Edwards is to make it work, and add another big behind Wallace.

Aw Heck

Can't happen for a few months because PJ Brown was just traded to Chicago. He can be traded now, but not with any other players from Chicago.

That said, no way in hell does Chicago do that.

as much as id love to see Ben Gordon a Pacer its not happening. Id be all up for this trade though..but just for Gordon i have no intrest in P.J. Brown

Chicago absolutely doesn't do it.. they're trading the two best players and getting back three guys that they wouldn't really even need..

no way chicago does it. what they need is a front court scoring threat... i doubt they'd trade gordon about as much as i doubt they'd trade hinrich but the only way is to get a quality PF scoring option. foster isn't an offensive option. as far as gordon is concerned, i'd prefer him to jax but i don't think it significantly improves the team.
