Apparently its a done deal and just for their trade exception.

I heard this on the Radio and don't have a link. Chad Ford apparently is who announced it.

If anyone hears anything else here please add it.

The Magic keep making moves that are mediocre at best. I for one sincerely hope that Gilbert returns to form because it will be a sad day for Floridians when Dwight jumps ship to Boston.

Just did a quick google search that returned no news on this. I like Foye, but this doesn't really do much for Orlando IMO.

Or to the Pacers to fill their one big needed role for a beast PF and play along Hibs. Why not? ;)

Ha I WISH something like that would happen to us. That would make us a top contender.

no way. That would be stupid. IF Howard comes here, then hibbert gets traded for another piece.

This is the gamechanging move that Dwight has been looking for.....I sense that he'll sign that extension soon.

Wow...talk about spinning your wheels and getting no where fast.

Foye is a nice combo guard, but with Orlando's packed PG depth, he'll probably play SG mostly.

Why trade Roy? One of the biggest knocks on Orlando is that Dwight has no help down low. Roy and Dwight would be a match made in heaven, mostly because of Dwight but still.

any S&T or trade for Dwight would have to include Roy IMO .

Yeah, fake. No mention anywhere except for this:

@Dan_Savage You'd be proud. I started a bogus rumor w/ fake tweets & all about trading for Randy Foye and it spread like wildfire. :)

That twitter account wouldn't belong to A.B. Hollywood..... would it?

Of all players to start a bogus rumor over it's Randy Foye? :hmm:

That's crazy. We could have offered more for Foye. Maybe a package centered around Granger.

Haha, you caught me. I spent hours creating a fake twitter and posting for random people all day in order to create a lackluster deal that has zero effect on the Pacers.

Damn. Totally thought I'd get away with this.

If it's not you, then explain how you heard it on the radio from, allegedly, Chad Ford?

Historically, when someone comes along with the "I don't have a link but I heard it on the radio" line, 99% of the time, they're bull****ing everyone.

Only 99%?

I can't think of a single time when that wasn't the case.

I (very) vaguely recall it happening, but it was always shortly thereafter verified by a better source.

This is going wayyyyyy back, but I think that's how word first broke about the Indiana/Chicago trade in February of 2002 on the IndyStar board.

Only 1,146 more posts after this to match the TWolves/Beasley "rumor" thread! :D

Haha, uhh....whoa are you serious?

I mean... why on earth would I do that with ****** I don't even really care about? I think there are logical fallacies here. But whatever, I'll indulge you nonetheless:

At my offices at work I sit right next to the biggest magic fan on the planet. Dude listens to the local Orlando stations all damn day and we regularly talk NBA ball. Which as an aside, you'll notice in my posts I tend to bash Orlando or link to Orlando rumors from time to time, this is why. But I digress...

Anyways today he takes off his headphones, turns his chair towards me and says "We just traded for Randy Foye" Puzzled, I have him send me the stream and sure enough they are discussing this as if it were some done deal. 2 minutes later I left (mainly because after moving from Orlando I cant stand those idiots but again thats not the point). I actually asked him if this was confirmed elsewhere and he said that Chad Ford is where it came from. I searched. Couldnt find a link, assumed maybe it was just extremely new and then posted here.

As you can see I did also use the word "apparently" when saying the Chad Ford part because that was indeed nothing I was able to hear for myself and confirm. Makse sense?

And....

scene!
