    Default Toronto /Pacer rumor courtest of Blahzay (RATS)

    I just heard that there are serious talks between the Pacers and Toronto that would send Artest and the rights to last years pick Ezarem Lorbek to the Raptors.

    In exchange Indy would recieve Morris Peterson and another player as yet un-named but most likely Matt Bonner plus the Raptors 2006 1st round pick.

    Again, not going to say where I heard it but same deal as my Saras info, take it for what it's worth.

    Not a MoPete fan at all, but the Raptors #1 would be great!

    MoPete and a high lottery pick? I'll bite.

    The 2006 pick? The one that very well could be a number 1 pick?

    Wait...I just assumed that pick was lottery protected. If not, that could be a good deal. Hmm...

    I don't know which is more appealing, the high lottery pick or the knowledge that Ron would be playing for the Raptors!

    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)

    I believe Blahzay (or more specifically his source) called us landing Sarunas before ESPN announced it, btw.

    I'd be happy with this. Nothing outstanding, but at the same time I don't feel violated.

    I think that's a very good deal for only Artest.

    But as btown already noted, there must be some mistake. I thought for sure we'd be getting Bosh in any deal with Toronto!?! Maybe we have to add Samaki Walker because they would like how tall he is?

    Can't we just trade Ron for Toronto's 2007 pick unprotected?

    The more I think about it, the more sense this deal actually makes. A lot of sense.

    Babcock was in the media the other day mentioning how he would throw picks around to get some players.

    I've watched Adam play many times and he's the game vs Michigan State, he showed he was pretty clutch.

    Question for you R. Who's running that organization. I would not be happy that Babcock was mortgaging my team's future in a futile attempt to save his job.

    The trade works salary-wise, and Bonner can be traded starting tomorrow.

    Hmm...

    I could live with this deal. It would fun having a Top 3 pick next year as well.

    I haven't really watched much of Bonner, but I heard he's Cro-esque. Is he better or worse?

    Mo Pete is Bender's second cousin, for what it's worth.

    It is actually pretty scary how much sense this would make.

    We get a solid SG/SF to plug into the rotation, and what should be a Top 5 pick (if the pick is actually Toronto's unprotected). This will likely be a very weak draft, but that should get a good player nonetheless.

    Plus, we ship Ron to Toronto. Which would be too perfect.
    Exactly my thoughts.... the fact that Lorbek is included certainly helps verify its possible legitmacy. How many people would actually take the time to even think about him.

    Plus it's pretty realistic...I am not blown away, but I am satisified .if that's the case...

    Why Not Us ?

    It is Babcock first and foremost. He definitely has the most say in any decision, and takes full responsibility for any moves/picks/signings he has done up to this point. He is at the helm, and his word goes.

    His right-hand man is Wayne Embry, but the two of them see eye-to-eye on everything.

    Either way, Babcock's contract is coming to an end within the next year. I know there are a lot of people at this point who would be willing to just let him go, but I could see him taking the risk on Artest to prove that "he's worthy".

    And for the reasons btown pointed out, among others this deal just makes a lot of sense from both sides.

    Babcock seems to have this stereotypical view of Canadians as wanting all their guys to be "rock-solid, aggressive, hockey players" pretty much. That was why he took Rafael Araujo (or part of the reason). I betcha he thinks Ron would instantly gain the crowd's respect in Toronto and bring out some more fans.

    Along with that, I bet you anything that Sam Mitchell wants Ron Artest. I guarantee that.

    No. More. Top. 5. Picks. From. Toronto.

    The Raps fans on RealGM say they don't own the rights to their 1st 1st round pick next year.

    Do the Raptors have more than 1 first round pick in 2006? That would help to clear up the question of whether or not we're getting a lottery pick.
