    Default Is there a certain kind of team who would want to trade for JO before the deadline?

    I'm wondering if there could be a certain situation where a contending team wants JO for the following reasons:

    1. They have a serious player turning free agent this summer who they doubt they can match.

    2. To replace him they sign JO now, and they get to have him during the playoffs to increase their chances at a run this year.

    The Pacers, meanwhile, get an early jump start at rebuilding, add their major player now rather than later, and avoid the risk of further nonstop injuries to JO.

    Also, if certain members of TPTB, namely Bird, have been wanting to trade JO all along, this would be the perfect time. Since he's already out, there would be less of an outcry from the fan base.

    That would be a big gamble on any teams part at this point. He's basically out for the season, and everyone saw how "effective" he was in last years playoffs coming off of an injury with roughly the same timeframe. I doubt anything like that happens. Most of the teams on the cusp have no issues at PF, and nothing to offer us in return for a player of JO's caliber.
