    Default Since New Jersey may be interested now

    It's been reported that Vince Carter may be available so here's my proposed trade:


    Ron Artest - 19.4 ppg, 4.9 rpg, 2.2 apg in 37.8 minutes
    Jonathan Bender - 5.0 ppg, 2.0 rpg, 1.0 apg in 10.5 minutes

    Incoming

    Vince Carter - 21.5 ppg, 5.5 rpg, 3.6 apg in 36.0 minutes

    Change in team outlook: -2.9 ppg, -1.4 rpg, and +0.4 apg.


    Successful Scenario


    It could be much worse. Vince is still an All-Star and an exciting player. His contract is a downside but he could be an upgrade for our SG position.

    What do you think?

    Larry is not coming back, he didn't have a meeting with Orlando for not reason, yeah he is coming back to the NBA but not to the Pacers, the notion that he is a taking a year off and then come back is absurd.

    in a heartbeat.

    It's always bothered me that he dogged it in Toronto, but his talent level is so high that you just can't pass it up despite knee/leg issues.

    Might be the only possibility of an option 1/ other option 1 duo to rival JO/Ron at least on offense. On D he's not terrible.
    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!)

    Here's an idea on a 3-way:

    :thepacers get:
    Vince Carter

    get:
    Stephen Jackson
    Marc Jackson

    get:
    Rafer Alston
    Ron Artest
    Lonny Baxter
    Eddie Gill
    Stromile Swift

    This coincides with news that the Nets want Swift, and Marc is uhappy in NJ. Also, Rox fans have expressed they want SJax in the past.

    I'm sure this could be tweaked, but it's feasible.

    C - Foster/Hulk/Polly
    PF - JO/Cro/Walker
    SF - Carter/Granger
    SG - Freddie/AJ
    PG - Tins/Runi

    Then we try to package Freddie or AJ with Bender and Polly's contracts to upgrade the 2, as well as sign Snap.
    Seems to work for all teams involved, assuming NJ is really willing to trade Vince and wants Ron.

    I've also heard that NJ would be amenable to trading Carter... However in the above trade, there are too many guys going to NJ... they'd have to waive players or something...

    I'd do it.

    Never been a VC fan, but in his defense he's always been forced to be "the man" when I'm not sure he wants to be. He might be at his best with being 2nd option to JO.
