    Agreed.
    Now throw in Villanueva and it's another story.

    IDK, Toronto's 1st would be nice. Could easily be Adam Morrison or Rudy Gay, both potential NBA superstars. We'd suck this year, probably struggle to make the playoffs, so I'd like to see us keep our own 1st since it would be decent. Basically this deal is throwing away this season (2 in a row thats been wasted, woohoo!) for our long term future. It's worth considering but I dont think managment or most fans would go for it.

    Bad. Very bad. Throw in Bosh and drop the draft pick and we have a deal.

    Go raptors...they will make the playoffs w/ this trade, so the unprotected pick would be worse than ours.

    Not that I endorse it as a great deal or anything, but I cannot believe how bad this trade has been blasted. Let's take a look at what we get...

    MoPete and Eric Williams - solid, but definitely unspectacular vets
    Matt Bonner - great energy player, rebounder, outside shot, too
    Pape Sow - isn't this guy leading the d-league in scoring? not a remarkable accomplishment, but still, a decent project
    Lottery pick - wouldn't be the #1 with the talent that Toronot would be getting, but still an improvement over our own

    What we're giving up...

    Artest - not going to play another game for the Pacers, ever
    Jackson - questions about loyalty, place on team... Indy played better with him out of the lineup vs. NY than with him in it
    Harrison - only getting DNP-CDs right now
    First round pick - definitely later in the draft

    This isn't an earth-shattering deal, but it would not be the doomsday that this thread predicts!

    I don't know that we need a 'star' back in this trade. JO will get his shots, and I don't mind the rest being spread around between Tinsley, Saras, Granger, Croshere with Freddie and Bonner in the second unit...

    I know you want to clean shop but this isn't in our best interest.
    I figure Jax and Harrison can be traded at another time and i
    am willing let things pan out. You never who may come avaliable later
    on.
