Also = OJ Mayo might be traded to Indiana Pacers for Josh McRoberts and a 1st Rd pick - (oh geez)

Has to be a Joke... that is the worst trade I think I have heard of unless we are trying to then make some trade with chicago for Boozer or something but we have already traded our 1st in that case... couldnt see this happeneing, couldn't see us getting boozer either so this must be a joke

We'll know very soon if this happened because I think you have to call the NBA about it before the 3PM deadline.

My guess if it's real, they waited too long. Unless the news just is coming out a tad late.

Really?
02-24-2011, 03:11 PM
So we are already thin at the Bigs position and we decide to do this... really messing up the chemistry right now.... we better have made some type of trade with TJ for a big to go along with this...

I don't know about that. However, at the moment, he's one of two PF's on our whole roster. Why trade for another wing when we have Granger, Rush, George, and Jones?

I like the deal, but I am surprised that Rush or Dunleavy weren't send out of town for another 4.

Now we are very thin at the 4 and I hope that doesn't mean we see more James Posey there. At the same time, we got significantly better at the 2 spot.

I wouldn't say he's a huge peice but as a decent big we need him. We are short on bigs, and we dont need another guard/wing.

This. The Pacers would have to include someone else.

Marlin
02-24-2011, 03:20 PM
From a talent standpoint, you have to do it. It's buying low if Mayo ever becomes what he's supposed to be.

But if there isn't a deal somewhere shipping out Jones or Rush, it creates a logjam at the wing position, too many young guys not enough playing time.

Really?
02-24-2011, 03:20 PM
Maybe Dunleavy's injury is worst than thought... idk... Just trying to figure out why we would put ourselves in this situation... out of all the expiring we had and we trade josh...?

And we just make ourselves a smaller team, and just further delays the development of Lance...

Hopefully in a couple hrs we will know a little more about this whole thing

PaceBalls
02-24-2011, 03:20 PM
This has to mean we traded Brandon or Dahntay as well for a big guy. Otherwise this makes no sense with how important it seems to be for us to be in the playoffs. This makes us really thin.

Damn, I really like Josh, if it is true, I hope we bring him back next year.

I'm torn.

I really like Josh. He's young. He's versatile. It seems he fits in great with the rest of team's chemistry, especially with Roy.

On the other hand, it's OJ Mayo. I'm licking my chops when I think of pairing him with Paul George on the wing. Both are the playmakers that we've sorely lacked in the past.

After this season, we have Rush, George, Granger and Mayo on the wings. A perfect rotation. We are thin in the frontcourt, but I'll worry about that later. No question we get the most talented player in the deal. Worry about filling positions later.

Just my initial reaction here.

Come now.

From Vernon's blog.....

CHRISVERNON.COM BREAKING NEWS
The Grizzlies have completed a trade with the Houston Rockets for Shane Battier. The Grizzlies will give up Thabeet and a protected 1st Rd pick.

The Grizzlies are close to finalizing a deal with the Indiana Pacers that would send OJ Mayo to the Pacers in return for Josh McRoberts and their first round pick.

You can't look at this year.

I'm really excited about this, I think its an absolute steal.

Mayo will be the second best pure scorer on the team, starting Friday, if this is true. He isn't afraid to take the game winning shot.

My concern is his attitude and off court stuff.

Talent wise this is a completely lopsided deal.

You are think up front, not sure what happens there. Posey I guess plays 12 minutes a night.

****ing stupid sums this trade up nicely. In a vacuum this deal ma be good, but we don't live in a vacuum. We live in a world where we have good, possibly even great talent at SG already and no depth at PF without McBob. This is the kind of trade you make when you are just making a trade to trade. It does not help this team at all.

Pacersalltheway10
02-24-2011, 03:33 PM
Ok In my opinion this is an absolute steal. We get a player who can easily score 20 ppg and is not a horibble defender is a quick for basically a 1st because i see us signing josh again this summer. so Mayo for a 1st in a weak draft if pretty awesome IMO

collison/price
Mayo/jones
george/ rush
Granger/Hans
hibbert/foster

i'm okay with danny playing PF for just about 35 more games this season if hans doesnt start.

Kegboy
02-24-2011, 03:33 PM
People say that McRelevant will just come right back, but I see this as the opposite. Only reason you trade him is if you don't believe you'll be able to re-sign him (or you don't want to.)

Mayo's talented, but he's a knucklehead. I'm terrified of what trouble he could get Lance into.

I like McRoberts as much as the next guy, but OJ Mayo is a special talent. If the Pacers want McRoberts bad enough, they can always sign him at years end. It will be interesting to see what happens with the frontcourt. An already somewhat thin frontcourt just got thinner. I wouldn't be surprised to hear another one of our wings was moved for a big man.

I like McRoberts as much as the next guy, but OJ Mayo is a special talent. If the Pacers want McRoberts bad enough, they can always sign him at years end. It will be interesting to see what happens with the frontcourt. An already somewhat thin frontcourt just got thinner. I wouldn't be surprised to hear another one of our wings was moved for a big man.

Mayo is not that special of a talent. While McRoberts may not be special either it is a lot hard to find a player like McRoberts than it is to find a player like Mayo. Hell we most likely already have a player just like Mayo on this team sitting at the end of the bench.

I don't think people in the NBA really think he is a special talent anymore.I think all the scouts thought he could become a pg and he would be a matchup nightmare for opposing point guards. As a 2 guard he's a bit undersized.That being said he can score and is a very solid shooter.I think he can be a excellent player to come off the bench and become a instant offense type of player kind of similar to Ben Gordan.

Damn, this is poor form.

We've injured our team's relationship with McBob. This is probably the worst outcome from all of this, because it severely harms the negotiation process that will happen in the off season.

We'll see how he (and the rest of the team) responds to this.

This is such a freaking steal. This is the epitome of low risk/high, high reward.

What a steal. What a steal. Even if he doesn't work out, he's still better than Josh and whatever we can get in the first round in a lockout.

I LOVE THIS TRADE.

I love this trade too. Josh will be missed but I think the Pacers will just need to play Danny more at PF to make up for his loss.

I'm really interested in seeing if they got anyone else in this deal. Even if they didn't, this is a great trade for the Pacers.

1. The 1st round pick doesn't mean all that much to them.

2. They consider Josh to be expendable, even to the point that it would leave them short-handed at his position. The positive is that Josh either appeared to have decent value or Memphis is fed up with Mayo, or both.

3. With the willingness to trade Josh AND give up their 1st round pick, it seems a certainty that the Pacers look forward to acquiring a new PF this summer.

Why some of us werent happy with this trade is beyond me. I mean, yes we trade a big for a small where we need a extra big. But Larry told us so many times, when i see a trade i cant deny, i pull the trigger.. He is still trying to make this team better on the long run, the three year plan is not the end of an era and the beginning of us to compete for a championship.

Its not that we can compete for a championship this season. We could have gotten to the P/O with this deal and yes we maybe we would have a lesser chance to win in the first round. But we would still get the P/O experience, get better at the SG position and next summer all the opportunity to add some Bulk inside with all that cash we have..

So yes, for now our chances to win some would slink, but longterm wise (i mean next season not that long) we would have gotten way better.

Its a shame we didnt make the deal yesterday instead of 5 minutes before the freakin deadline. I mean, i had a day off, was reading PD the whole day yesterday, i had the time...

If they wanted the deal to go through, they could have easily applied for a time extension to work the deal out. Personally I think we would have been better off acquiring Mayo. He is a great talent, there is no doubt to that. We would definitely have a log-jam of swingmen, but Im sure Bird will look to move Jones and Posey to a contender in the off-season

It just seems that every year right before the trade deadline, we get so close to a deal, but it falls apart...maybe Bird should keep his clock 3 hours ahead to avoid time limits

I am tickled to death this deal fell through. I am a big Hansbrough fan but I do not want him in the starting line up and I like McRoberts. The two together are doing a great job.

Tyler does not do a lot with the starters as he is relegated to playing behind Hibbert and Granger as a scorer. Leave him alone with the second unit where scoring is his forte and he is a kind of a go to guy. He and Foster make a great team down low.

Plus you do not mess up the chemistry we have and it is hard for me to see how Mayo is any improvement especially with what it does taking away one of our key big men with no one available to replace him. Tyler cannot play 48 minutes a night. Would have been a horrible trade and maybe cost us the playoffs.

When is the annual, "I worked the phones to improve our ball club and we couldn't find any deals to improve the team," press conference.. Except for this year there were 4-6 guys that could help our team immensely? I just want to hear when it starts so that it can just be official.

If the Pacers really want Mayo my guess is they can still get him this summer.

I don't know what happened here and why the deal didn't happen. None of us do.

I wouldn't call a solid backup C on an expiring deal and 2 1sts a giveaway really.

I just wonder if this deal reflects more on Josh's value or Mayo's?
2 SECOND ROUND not 1st

WE MADE AN EFFORT TO GET HIM??
WE COULDNT BEAT THE EXPIRE+ 2 2nd round PICKS ???????????????

So, we missed the league deadline because the league-owned team backed out of a deal? Hmm...

how the f*** is the league making trades anyway with the hornets?

The Pacers, Hornets and Grizzlies were very close to finishing a three-team trade involving O.J. Mayo, Brandon Rush and Josh McRoberts with the call logged at 3:01 PM EST, but the Hornets reportedly pulled out.

The Hornets are currently owned by the NBA.

Memphis would have received McRoberts and a first round pick from Indiana.

New Orleans was going to acquire Rush.

If the New Orleans was involved, then the deal should be revisited. IMHO, it's no fair that a league owned pull out of a deal that crippled ours with Memphis. Bird should file some type of complaint.

I wish it had gone through just so we didn't have to deal with this crap now that Rush and free agent to be McBob know they were being shopped.

Listened to BS Report podcast (the sports guy) with Stern from about a week ago, said that New Orleans was operating on it's own and got any/all player stuff they wanted.

Wow, so we were giving up Rush for Mayo on top of McRoberts and a 1st? Were we getting a big back or was that the deal?

Stern nicked the deal when he caught me squealing with delight in the last stall of the little boy's room, shouting, "And we will sign McBob back next summer!!!"

You would think that with it being the NBA-operated Hornets that pulled out when it was too late for the Pacers and Grizzlies to renegotiate, that they'd be lenient in giving them (Indy & Memphis) a deadline extension.

New Orleans had to give something up to get Rush, we just don't know what it is yet.

wow that does seem like bull****, i'm glad the trade didn't happen but it does seem very shadey to say the least. No wonder we never want to make a trade at the deadline all these teams always back out on us at the last second and it makes for very bad PR.

There's something fishy going on. This whole things makes no sense.

What exactly was NO giving up for Rush? Can you just "take" players without giving anything up at all?

cdash

People, the Hornets are owned by the NBA. Their regular front office people are dealing with the trades, and I suspect they operate under the same rules that everybody else does. **** happens, you deal with it and move on.

thats part of the NBA. You shouldnt get mad because we had a proposed trade that feel through thats part of the NBA. Im sure Brandon and Jmac understand that.
