That would explain why Ford didn't play last night. Trade pending you don't want to play a guy and get him injured.


I suspect Wells knew this yesterday and just couldn't say it

Randolph is athleticially talented, but I've heard his IQ is not really good and his work ethic is a major question

Does anyone see any speculation about T.J. Ford being included? I don't see him mentioned in the article. The only place I see him mentioned is on the Real GM board, with this post:

http://forums.realgm.com/boards/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=1085514&start=15

"If we are dealing with Indy - which I really don't like doing given there in our conference and competing for a #8 seed.

Do we have any fits to try out TJ Ford. He's expiring and you never know he could be a penetrating set the pace back up point guard we need to back up Felton."

Well, the rumors are that we'd have to be sending our first round pick to the Knicks so they can use it to land Melo... And TJ's contract is a sizeable contract that is ending, so Denver would like that too. Question is, what do we get back to balance the salaries? Anthony Randolph is $2 mill and TJ is $8.5 mil. (Article makes no mention of such. Turiaf?)

Guess Denver will want something for Melo since all indications are he's going to NY anyway.

Ford and Solo can easily take his place as filler.

Admittedly this is all just speculation - I'm just playing around with the salaries to see what could fit. Curious though that Ford was held out last game (first game he's missed this season?) and Solo as well when we were missing Hibbert. Of course Posey didn't play either so it might not mean anything.

Well, sources close to Randolph may say that the deal's already done, but as Mike Wells stated on Twitter (http://twitter.com/MikeWellsNBA/status/28121664436834305), the Pacers have 15 guys on the squad and they're over the salary cap. Without any definite answers as to who we're sending or cutting, then the deal can't go through all the way.

I really hope that Bird and Morway are actually trying this time.

The Superteam Era Is Upon Us, What's Going To Happen In The NBA?If The Knicks Lose Out On Carmelo Anthony, Plan B Is Marc GasolThe Epic Knicks-Celtics Game Proves The Knicks Need To Trade For Carmelo Anthony Right Now

Speculation has been swirling around New York Knicks forward Anthony Randolph after his agent requested that the team trade the sparsely-used, third-year forward.

A source with direct knowledge of Randolph's situation now tells us that the Knicks have agreed to a deal that will send Randolph to the Indiana Pacers.

We called the Knicks for comment and a spokesperson said, "There's nothing to report."

Many have speculated that Knicks GM Donnie Walsh would use Randolph to acquire a first-round pick, and that appears to be the case here. Walsh covets that pick, because it is believed to be a necessary component in any deal with the Nuggets that includes Carmelo Anthony.

With the Nets formally dropping out of the Anthony bidding, the timing of this trade suggests the Knicks are going to make a final push for the all-star forward.

While the move was far from shocking, many wondered which team would actually trade their first-rounder for Randolph, a bench player that coach Mike D'Antoni has lost interest in. The Timberwolves were the presumed front-runner. Now we know the Pacers, Walsh's former employer, were the team prepared to acquire the 6-foot-11 Randolph.

The Pacers are pretty deep in frontcourt players, but none can match Randolph's raw athletic ability. It's up to Indiana to accomplish what New York and Golden State couldn't over the last three seasons: convert his vast potential into consistent production.

(We will update this story as soon as we get our hands on more details...)

Could be this will end up going down as part of a Melo deal too. We could be the third team. Thus why there is a bit of a hold up plus it is quiet right now. If the deal is being made to bring in Melo might as well do it in one big move.

indianasmall3
01-20-2011, 01:07 PM
Am I in the minority here by not liking this trade? While I love getting rid of TJ are we really getting the best deal? Why is everyone down on Tyler Hans? He is basically a rookie and he is putting up great playing time when he is on the court. He had something like 16 points in a half of play last game. I want him to continue to start. Randolph is an underachieving, soft player that has no work ethic. I want a deal to happen with our expirings but I don't want a deal done just to say we did it.

I'm torn on this. If this is the only deal we can get done, then we take a chance on Randolph and his potential.

But there is almost a month until the trade deadline. If we give up our first now, then we are probably going to be out of any other trade we could have gotten closer to the deadline. If this is the final straw that the Knicks need to get Melo (our first), then I hope we get more out of it then just Randolph.

I'm not down on Hansbrough, at least right now. The kid's got potential, was a college star, and can do his fair share of work. But his transition the NBA wasn't a smooth one. Randolph, given Hansbrough's, Posey's, and Solo's minutes (off the top of my head) can produce more than those three combined.

Or maybe not. I just want someone in the 4-spot who can do the job now. I have no doubt in Randolph's potential and athleticism.

I'd guess its all based on what Chad Ford said in his last chat. Paraphrasing:

Since NJ was rumored to go after Danny during draft night or the #4 pick, they have had interest in him, so they might go after him again.

or this :)

http://www.pacersdigest.com/apache2-default/showthread.php?t=60499

---------------

The stuff we talked about here, during the draft, was how Danny was advertised as maybe being at the draft party, but he wasn't which furthered fueled speculation that NJ really did try to get him.

All a bunch of speculation and reaching, seems to me. I'd try to get Favors and this years #1 from NJ for Danny.

I'd guess we'd all appreciate how good Danny is/was if he was moved without a comparable player in return.

Maybe we take Murphy back just for salary purposes and make them take Posey or the Jones brothers and our cap space will look even better. Of course New Jersey would have to give us a first too.

We called our source, a friend of Randolph's, to find out where things went wrong. Here's the explanation:

Randolph told the source he was going to be traded by the end of the week, and insists he's heading to Indianapolis.

We jumped the gun by reporting the trade was imminent, but Randolph still tells the source that he's headed to the Pacers… eventually.

Again, Randolph practiced with the team today, so it seems highly unlikely that anything is actually in place yet. But it is what he's been telling friends.

Hmm. Guess we'll find out within a few days.

Maybe it was Randolph for Price? Randolph for TJ doesn't work financially, and don't the Knicks need a backup PG?

I know they didn't name the guy or anything, but isn't outing your source as a friend of AR's a bit, I duno, amateur-ish?

I just honestly don't believe there's anything to this.

Do we know if our pick is involved? I sure hope not.

He's a good talent but I bet we can play them dumb and just try to "help" them by cutting costs.

Maybe it is stalled because we were apart of a three-way with the Melo trade?

I wouldn't be surprised if the Pacers tried to get involved in the Nuggets deal. As Mike Wells tweeted earlier, the Pacers don't want to get younger, but wants some seasoned vets.

The Pacers have some seasoned vets, but they're really average role playing vets.

I wouldn't be surprised to see the Pacers try to get Nene from Denver and perhaps even take Harrington back as well as land Randolph.

Pacers will like send their 1st round pick, which is the entire reason the Knicks are willing to trade Randolph, and then throw in expiring contracts of like Foster (who Nuggets have wanted) and Dunleavy. Send another player to the Knicks to match Randolph roster wise.

I could see something like that going down

The fact that Randolph is rumored to believe he will be traded to the Pacers by the end of the week, would kinda make sense as well if you look at the fact that the Pacers play Denver on Sunday and than have a couple days off until Wednesday.

Just speculation

I just wish this thing would get squashed one way or the other. If we trade for Randolph that's cool and I hope he works out great for us, and if we don't trade for him then I hope our draft pick works out great too. I just want the madness to stop and somebody to come out one way or the other and say yes or no.

I think TJ Fords status for tomorrow nights game will say a lot. If he sits again, I think that will say something.

Randolph for TJ? Something else has to be involved.

this was on ESPN's rumors today

There's been chatter that New York's Anthony Randolph is likely to be traded to either Minnesota, Indiana or possibly Portland for a first-round pick.

Such a pick could then be used to bolster the Knicks' offerings to Denver in a Carmelo Anthony trade deal.

But as ESPN The Magazine's Chris Broussard reports, Denver itself could have interest in Randolph.

"The Knicks' timetable for trading Randolph could be pushed back a week or so because of New Jersey's pulling out of the Anthony chase, sources said," he wrote. "The likeliest trading partners for Randolph have been Minnesota and Indiana, both of whom would take him for a first-round pick that the Knicks in turn would put in a trade package for Anthony. But there's a possibility the Nuggets may be interested in Randolph as a player."

While Randolph hasn't been getting much playing time in New York, he's still a young player with a chance to grow and develop, one type of asset Denver is said to be interested in via an Anthony trade.
