Thread: Rakestraw Says GS May Have Increased Offer

  1. #1

    Default Rakestraw Says GS May Have Increased Offer

    He was just on ESPNRadio (national), and at the end of the standard Q & A, they asked him what he thought the next step. He said Golden State "reportedly increased its offer" after they heard about the Peja deal (and before it collapsed).

    Just a tidbit.

    Who wants Peja. Granger is too good not to play. Pacers back out of the deal. Call Clippers, lakers, G.State , and Denver and take the best offer. Tomorrow

    From the Warriors RealGM board, by a poster named ILOVEIT:

    Okay...here's the deal....

    Warriors have offered Pietrus and Ike for Artest....that's why neither player has been getting many minutes....

    Indianna tried to take Peja over our offer but Artest and Baron are tight....Artest would rather come to GS with Baron than the waste land that is Sac....

    My guess is that in the next day or so we'll hear Warriors trade for Artest sending Ike and Pietrus.
    If this is true...HELL YES. This trade is sooooo much better than Peja.

    That would indeed be highway robbery.

    Of course, I think the scurce is totally bogus.

    THe reason Diogu and Pietrus have been playign less lately is because theyre both struggling badly, not because GS is waiting for Ron.

    I don't see both of them in any artest deal.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    And also why it would never happen.

    Also take into account things seem to be brewing with Dunleavy Jr and Baron Davis in Golden State and they aren't going to send us Baron (who I don't want btw), so HELLO DUNLEAVY JR!!!

    I just want him gone. If it means he's gone tomorrow, by all means trade him for the cheetos already. The only time I ever want to see him is when he is getting his *** kicked by the Pacers

    This is Indiana. Good stuff like that wouldn't happen.

    It would definitely be a better long term deal.

    I think DW not pulling the trigger on that deal already is a little suspicious.

    I cannot believe that I am back to putting my hopes in the information passed along by posters named things like "Iloveit" on message boards. This is incorrect information of course, at least at the present time. If it was true earlier in the day, well by now they are offering nothing. After this stunt, I think that no team will want crazy Ron Ron. He is actually crazy!

    Oh Well...

    Of course, teams have us over a barrel now that they see Ron is running the show, so I'm sure they'll go back to their lowball offers.

    Either we have to take it or sit on Ron for the rest of the season.

    I highly doubt we get Pietrus and Diogu. Just getting ONE of them would be a coup at this point.

    I, too, believe it to be a bunch of crap. But there's still a tiny bit of hope there's some truth to it. But tell me, how much better is Pietrus than Fred Jones or Danny Granger? Where would Ike play? What happens to Croshere? A lot of questions.

    Unfortunately, You are right.

    The Pacers are entangled in a web that Artest has weaved.

    I would take an injured Magette ahead of anything right now and just hope for the best. Something good is due to happen for Indiana after all the bad stuff.

    Can Ike play center by the way?

    If we do do this trade I will also want Tinsley traded along with maybe Pollard Or Foster Or Harrison for a quality PG.
