    I'm pretty sure I just saw Btown stumble into a liquor store looking for a drink.

    I don't think it's a bad deal but I don't like how they think they are calling the shots here. Did they get the memo that he is a free agent?

    The Hawks are being greedy IMO. How hard is it to be one of the worst teams in the league? Why start trying to make good trades now? They're probably trying to trade for Donnie Walsh too.

    I say we give them the TE, 3 million, and 2 second rounders or can we do that because we already gave a couple up this year (I know one was the Suns)?

    Well the Hawks do have the power if Al wants to get more than the MLE. Because the Hawks can just say fine, you don't give us what we want than we will just let Al walk. But Al isn't going to want to play for the MLE.

    Teams aren't flocking over him right now, only the Pacers and maybe still the Warriors. So unless some unknown team comes in here and trumps what we can offer we still have a good shot at Al.

    Or maybe BK is using a negoating tactic, ask for a little more than what you would really take, that way you have room to negoiate and still get what you want.

    I wouldn't do it because Edwards is guaranteed so we would have to waive him or give up young talent for him. Edwards is a scrub, we don't know about Powell, Marshall, Greene, Snap.

    I see Edwards as a non-issue. Yes it's guaranteed money, but it's an expiring contract, so you may as well cut him to keep one of the Dallas F's.

    Al Harrington isnt worth a #1 pick, next year's draft is too stacked.

    AL + 2 2nd round picks and maybe some cash yeah thats better but NOT a first rounder no sir

    I don't think anyone's confirmed which year the draft pick is for. Perhaps all this worry over giving up a 2007 1st is over nothing. Maybe the Pacers are offering only a 2008, or 2009, etc., or perhaps it starts with next year's draft but the protection is, say, top 25 in 2007, lottery in 2008, and top 3 in 2009.

    No one has declared for next years draft either. I doubt Oden is in it.

    The Pacers won't be in a position to get Oden, so he's not the one who you'd worry about not getting.

    The draft next year is going to produce a lot of good players, that are going to have impacts on teams, some the next year, some the year after, but most will be high caliber players. You can't miss the boat with those players, because there's a higher than normal chance that you can land a big time player with a pick out of the lottery.

    The Hawks have to be asking for next years pick, because they currently don't have one. They're trying to get in on the stock pile as well.

    I'm really hoping Donnie doesn't give in, and part ways with a first rounder. It doesn't look like that will happen, because these "demands" have been reported since the middle of last week, and if he was going to give in it would of happened, IMHO.

    man it would be great to draft someone at 17, next year to wait on them to get better and maybe with the best case scenario they could average 18 and 8 by the time they are 26, wow now that would be soooo lucky. Sorry not being smart, but lets be realistic here.


    You can't guarantee drafting even second overall next year you would get that. Even if you could, you would likely have to wait on it. Al not being worth a 1st rounder, especially where the Pacers are drafting just is completely illogical.

    Theres no way the Pacers give up on this, all their other moves this offseason have been banking on this going thru. The roster can't hold up without Al anymore.

    If for some odd reason we don't get AL I would be willing to bet that DW and LB have a plan B. We have way too much talent to trade that could get us someone on par with AL. Like someone else said in another post I think we will go after a big name player if we do or even if we don't get AL. Giving up nothing for all would be huge because it would help us to get maybe one more big name. I think that player will be a great shooting gaurd...

    That would have to be Plan C, since they already said Al was plan B after losing Peja.

    How will adding a "superstar" SG help? By pissign Jax off more? By taking the rooks mins? By forcing the front line to stay paper thin?
