    Default (FAKE) Bucher reporting deal close...

    "I just saw on ESPN News that the Pacers are mulling over two deals...one sending Artest and Pollard to Sacramento for Bonzi and Peja,and the other Artest to NY for Crawford and Q Rich.NOTHING IS OFFICIAL but this is just the latest update from Rick Beucher or whatever his name is.There was a third deal where the Pacers would get Jalen Rose in exchange for Artest and Croschere but they passed on it. The Pacers didn't want Rose."

    Anyone see this to confirm????

    I'd probably error on the side of doing neither. Why do we want to trade one nutcase for another??

    Nutcases:
    Artest
    Craw
    Bullseye

    PeaNutcases:
    Peja
    Jalen
    Pollard

    Normal Cases:
    Q Rich
    Croshere

    I dont know about getting both Bonzi and Peja, seems to good to be true.
    HOwever, they both have expiring contracts and we would not have the cash to sign them both.

    Crawford and Richardson are just two overpaid players.

    With those two trades, I think I like the NY one better, Crawford is a good shooter, I remember he dropped 50 when he was on the Bulls.

    I still wouldn't be mad, if we did the Peja deal, because I still like Peja and plus we would move Ron to the west. I guess I would just hope Peja could stop his "choking" ways.

    Things are going to get pretty interesting.

    The RATS board read the other posts this guy reporting the rumor has made and decided it's a fake.

    Since Artest was once rumored to be traded for Wells straight up, the Sac deal sounds great.

    That is, if all this was actually reported.

    I don't like either deal for us. I hope this isn't true. I don't think any of those guys would fit in well with the current team make up (unless we are going to make alternate trades to get rid of Jackson/Tinsley, etc.).

    The Peja/Bonzi deal is fabulous. Thats 2 high quality starters for a nutjob and a guy who's a better comedian then he is a basketball player. That would allow us to start Bonzi, and send Jackson packing for a good backup bigman.

    But they're probably both fake.

    Even if ESPN did report this I wouldn't believe it.

    1] Donnie is not going to trade for Bonzi, period.

    2] Look at Crawford and Richardsons deals, they total 13 million this year and a total of 90 million. Think Donnie would do that? No young players and no cap relief?

    This screams FAKE from the get go!

    Probably not true, but I'd take the Peja/Bonzi deal EASILY.

    I can't believe anyone would say otherwise, really.

    I wouldn't say otherwise, I would scream it!

    Memphis didn't even want Bonzi on their playoff team last year, and Donnie Walsh is going to trade for him? NEVER!

    People complain about Jackson ... god forbid we get Crawford, and Q .... they both shoot worse than he does.

    Our team shooting % would drop like a rock. In Q's last 3 years he's failed to shoot above 40%, and for Crawford it's the same thing for the last 2 years. Blech

    You think Bonzi w/ his supposed reported past will mesh very well with Sarunas, Croshere, or Foster... He'd be worse then the Jackson-Sarunas passing problem we have now...

    That's presumptuous. Bonzi isn't Jackson, you don't know how he will react to any given individual. You can't even begin to make that assumption. However, Crawford and Q can't shoot, and a new uniform won't magically make that change.

    Regardless, at least Bonzi can play defense, and Peja can shoot.

    It's fake people! A guy over at IndyStar said he's been watching ESPN all day and nothing was ever mentioned about a possible deal. The only time Artest was mentioned was regarding the NBA P.A. challenging his $10,000 fine.

    I'd like to let people know that Bonzi Wells is having a pretty damn good year for Sacto so far, and has had no incidents. The main thing I like about him is that he rebounds very well from the guard spot.

    Peja isn't playing well right now but I think that all could change with some new scenery and getting some time with Larry Bird to maybe help him out.

    At the worst it's a lot of cap relief.

    The Knicks deal is pure garbage in my book; I'd never want either of those players on the team, Bonzi is better than both of them combined.

The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."

    But if's it's true . . .

    How many posters will open with those words or words to that effect and still debate it?
