Indy trades TJ Ford to New York

New York trades Jared Jefferies and Mohammed Sene-Saer

Why?

New York needs a PG, and although they take on salary in this deal, they get a major talent upgrade.

Indy saves between 1.2 million (if they keep Sene) and 2.0 million (if they cut him). His contract is ungauranteed. This allows us to very comfortably re-sign Jarrett Jack. We also get a back-up 3/4 who's still popular in Indiana and is not a terrible stop-gap player. Jefferies contract is the same length as Ford's, so it doesn't hurt the 3 year plan at all.

I really expected this to be a Tinsley trade when I clicked on it. Kinda glad it wasn't.

I love this trade myself. Both teams fill a need at the end of the day.
