Assume for a minute that the P's and GS DO complete this trade. Everyone assumes that the trade would not be completed until after we play GS on Thursday but, can a trade happen and the teams agree NOT to play the any of the traded players until after they meet? THey could easily site the need for so and so to complete a physical or that they are waiting for league approval etc. Can they do that?
Why should they? Simple, let's pretend they want to show compassion to long suffering, and very impatient, internet bloggers. Give us a bone and end our misery so to speak. I know it drives Hicks nutso to think of teams waiting until they have played to announce a trade but there ARE reasons to do that...like do we really wish to be the first team Ronnie faces once he gets back on the court? It would only be worse if it were a home court game there you would have fan reaction to deal with also.
I'm just hoping to hear of this soon.
BTW...my impression after watching the game last night....Murphy=Foster with a shot. My one worry looking at the stats....Pietrus SG ....shoots less than 70% freethrow accuracy.
