    Default Trade Rumor Thread

    How about a thread that lists any and all possible trades that have
    been mentioned. If you hear one then post it here.
    Here is one posted by JonDough on the Rats board


    "On the Atlanta Journal Constitutional a deal between Atlanta, Indiana, and Golden State is almost done. The deal would send Artest, Pollard, and Johnson to Golden State, Harrington and Pietrus to Indiana, and Murphy and Fisher to Atlanta. I think this is one that needs to be done, a win-win for everyone."


    I suspect this is totally bogus

    It is bogus. There's nothing on their site saying that.

    Good!!!

    I sure don't want Harrington back here, and then have him jump ship this summer (so he can start and make more $$).

    Ok here is a just a tidbit of 100% unfound rumor..

    Posted By rlucas4257
    I heard that Pietrus is ready to play but wont because the deal is close to being done. If Indy really gets Murphy and Pietrus, who is Artest-lite minus the maniacal behavior, they would have done extremely well for themselves. For GS, I am a little unsure. I love Artest and value him highly, but getting him and not getting rid of Dun Jr doesnt make one bit of sense to me. Dun goes to the bench and they lose a big fella on the front line, a front line that is manned by basically 3 rookies (Biedrins played little last year but will be good, Diogu, Taft) along with Foyle. And they have a stopper and tough guy there on the wings in Pietrus already so I am not sure what they are thinking actually.
    http://www.basketballboards.net/foru...13#post3016013

    Now I did PM this person and talked about where he got his source. basically he indicated he got his information from Friends and Associates of Pietrus..

    So take it for whatever that is worth .. if nothing else.. something to think about...

    Why Not Us ?

    Almost a month ago, or right after this whole thing started, Glen Ordway on the Big Show, on AM 850 WEEI in Boston, reported that the Pacers flatly refused an offer of Ricky for Ron.

    Let's assume Harrington comes back ... is Al permitted to agree to a contract extension as a condition precedent to the trade? And/or are the Pacers permitted to sign him for an additional several years now?

    Regardless whether bringing Al back is a good idea, bringing him back for the next 50 games with no guarantee he will re-sign after the season does not seem a good idea.

    I am just wondering what the rules, if any, are concerning locking Al up now. I do not believe we can ... and an informal agreement between Al and Pacers is only that, informal. Does anyone know?

    Are you kidding me?

    A headcase for a headcase isn't exactly what I wanted. Hell, Lets just get Ricky Davis and hope we can reaquire Artest via trade.

    We could then have the craziest backcourt in NBA history...as if we didn't already.

    Well Al is good friends with Jermaine. He has a lot of money and he know what its like to lose now. He would probably want to stay, but either way I don't want him.

    I want a big guy and a draft pick. If we could get Ricky Davis, Blount, draft pic somehow. We need to consider that. Celtics clearly have some interest in ron. THat would make Jackson expendable for a trade, possibly involving him/blount and getting an upgrade big guy.

    I'm just throwing out possibilities here. Who know whats going to happen.

    I love how Boston's first rounder just happens to get tacked on to the Ricky Davis offer every time it gets brought up. Somebody better let Danny know that his offer has been changed.

    This whole thing has made some of us lose our minds

    RICKY F-ING DAVIS?

    I would rather play Artest as that would actually be less volatile than that head case

    The Pacers would get his Bird rights, meaning that only teams under the cap would be able to pay him what the Pacers could offer.

    I'm not sure that there are any half decent teams positioned to have cap room next summer.

    NBA contracts can't be renegotiated or extended to facilitate a trade.

    Hasn't Ricky been pretty well behaved since the move to Boston?

    Not sure about you guys but I would love to get Pietrus and Harrington in this trade. I'm pretty confident Al would be our starting SF and has expressed that he had it pretty good in Indy, therefore if he can start here I see no reason for him to leave. I'm also a huge Pietrus fan and would be thrilled to see him in a Pacer's jersey.

    Does anybody think Al wouldn't start and why not, Granger? That would be a joke. Granger hasn't shown enough to be starting over Al as a rook
