Successful Scenario
Due to Indiana being over the cap, the 25% trade rule is invoked. Indiana had to be no more than 125% plus $100,000 of the salary given out for the trade to be accepted, which did happen here. This trade satisfies the provisions of the Collective Bargaining Agreement.


I would go nuttier than a squirl turd if we could actually pull that one off. Just imagine Josh Smith and Fred Jones playing together at the same time.

Sorry for posting another Artest trade thread but I couldn't help myself.
