Ok, well I don't know if everyone knows this but a while back there was an article where Brad basically said he wanted to retire in Indiana. That it was his favorite place ever, etc. etc. He has been playing worse for the kings than when he got here, and recently he hasn't been playing well at all. His defense is awful now. I'm starting to wonder if he's kind of doing the same thing Carter did with the Raps and Peja did earlier in the season. Would the pacers want Brad back?

As a kings fan I can say that the kings need better interior D and more athleticism up front. That's not really a problem in Indiana because the pacers have Jermaine. I want Kenyon Martin(a lot of kings fans don't but they don't look at how he brings good defense, shotblocking, athleticism, and intensity). The nuggets need another shooter. Anyways here is something I thought up even though I'm sure a lot of people will find holes in it:

Successful Scenario
Due to Sacramento, Indiana, and Denver being over the cap, the 25% trade rule is invoked. Sacramento, Indiana, and Denver had to be no more than 125% plus $100,000 of the salary given out for the trade to be accepted, which did happen here. This trade satisfies the provisions of the Collective Bargaining Agreement.

The kings need a backup PG BADLY, preferably one with a lot of experience. The kings help their defense and get some more athleticism. The nuggets need a shooter pretty badly, they get Potapenko who expires in 2007 and SJax who can shoot pretty well. The pacers get Brad Miller who really wants to play there, but I'm not sure if it's fair for them. Feedback would be appreciated from me-a depressed kings fan.
