Pacers Get: Etan Thomas
Thunder Get: TJ Ford

Why for Pacers? I really think this team can do just as poorly with Watson and Head at point guard as they can if Ford is in there. Simply a salary dump. Thomas's contract comes off the books after this year while TJ has a player's option for next season.

Why for Thunder? They are currently the 8th seed in the West at 10-8. They really don't have a good backup to Russell Westbrook. They have a very talented team capable of making the playoffs but TJ would really help them out. He would be a perfect fit there really because Westbrook can easily slide over and play the two when TJ is on the floor.

I'm game. I doubt that the Thunder will take themselves out of the 2010 sweepstakes for TJ Ford's sake, however.

I thought about this but really who would they go after? Do they even have that much money to spend?

I doubt the Thunder plan on being active beyond bargain players and re-signings in the 2010 Free Agency period.

The Thunder will have enough to throw the max at somebody. If they can land a star, you've got a championship contender.

No, they probably won't...not with the cap dropping to around $50mm.

TJ Ford is on the Thunder on my 2k season mode.
