    Default Houston Trade

    wonder if houston would trade spoon and wesley for croshere and aj....

    im kinda assuming saras will be signed and aj will be expendable...

    wesley might be more useful than croshere would be and both spoon and wesleys contracts expire this season....

    i dunno...dunno if it makes sense for either team....it gets rid of crosheres contract....and i think aj would fit in well there and i could see the rockets wanting him....

    Foretaz speculating on a trade????







    What about the idea of just dropping AC's contract under the 1-time amnesty?

    What an original idea! How ever did you come up with it?
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    I don't see why they'd add $11 million or whatever to their payroll, especially when they have to re-sign Yao Ming next summer ...

    ... and especially when we're talking about Austin Croshere and Anthony Johnson.

    You're excused. It's not really that big a deal.

    If Houston trades for Austin Croshere or Anthony Johnson, I'll eat my shoe.

    You mean their 05-06 payroll or their 06-07 payroll?

    JVG's always been high on Croshere, and they're dying for some help at PF and PG.

    You're killing me. I've posted this a dozen times in the past 6 months. One of the top 10 threads on the board right now has it as the second or third post. I've explained, in depth, what would make it a possibility.

    im killing you? lol...ok....from what i can tell...u ve mentioned trading croshere for baker and spoon repeatedly.....most of these were before i was around, for what its worth...(forgive me, i did see it mentioned in one post since ive been here-but unfortunately its not my practice to read every one of ur posts)

    nevertheless....i didnt see anything about aj and croshere to houston....and i didnt see anything about aj to houston....or wesley coming here....nor did i mention anywhere about baker coming here(though i did in a 3 way deal for kg a while back)

    so forgive me if ur feelings were hurt....i didnt realize croshere to houston was off limits....nevermind that part is a well known common denominator....

    i guess in the future ill have to scan all ur posts before i mention anything....and if any part even remotely resembles it, ill have to avoid the subject altogether for fear of not being original.....so sorry

    Why would they want to trade fro Croshere when they could simply get him for the Vet Minimum after the Pacers cut him to save the Luxury tax money?

    Regardless of who's idea it is, there is virtually no chance of it happening.

    lol...well obviously if they knew the pacers would do that, and they knew for sure they could get him,they probably wouldnt do it......but then again they wouldnt get aj either....and thats as much an incentive as anything...

    it should be interesting to see how long the window exists for teams to exercise the amnesty clause....it appeared it wouldnt be very long...

    maybe something like this, if there was any chance whatsoever, would happen after said window is closed...then we know whether it happens or not...

    if houston thinks croshere is a possibility to get waived...they might wait...of course if he is waived, theres a very good chance he goes home to the LA area....so...who knows

    Yeah, the economics have changed a bit with the new rule.

    Obviously next year's ...

    At this point, I'm pretty sure JVG's gotten over any love affair he had with Austin Croshere. He's Austin Croshere; it's just natural to feel in love with the receeding hairline for a little bit.

    But at some point, the inevitable baldness starts to set in.
