though Bird doesnt say they have no interest in Kwame, he does say they would never trade Foster and Freddie for him....which seems to make sense....
of course...as i reread the article, we dont really no what question Birds response was actually to.....so who really knows....bit of poor reporting...should be clearly stated what question Bird was asked
No interest in Kwame
Pacers president Larry Bird denied a report the franchise was attempting to trade for Washington center Kwame Brown.
The most prevalent version had the Pacers offering Jeff Foster and Fred Jones, who was being mentioned in a trade rumor for the second time in the past two weeks, for Brown, the first pick in the 2001 draft.
"That would not happen," Bird said Tuesday. "There's no way we'll do that."
Bill Duffy, the agent for both Foster and Jones, said he was aware of the rumor but did not believe it had credibility.
"Based on my history with (Pacers CEO) Donnie Walsh, if something was imminent I would have talked to him by now," Duffy said.
