    Default Putting together a deal for T-Mac

    Since this seems to be the trade of the moment, lets see how we do it.

    The numbers below are from HoopsHype, these are the salaries for the current Pacers for the 04-05 season.

    McGrady is slotted to make $14,487,000.

    The Pacer offer must be fair to Orlando & be better than what any other team can offer them. It also needs to be with 15% of McGrady's salary, either way, plus or minus.

    If my Texas Insrtuments TI-1726 is working, then the 15% window would mean our offer needs to be between $12,313,950 & $16,660,050.

    Who do we offer?

    Jermaine O'Neal ----- $14,782,500
    Austin Croshere ------- $8,260,000
    Al Harrington ----------- $6,250,000
    Jonathan Bender ------ $6,390,000
    Scot Pollard ------------ $5,792,250
    Ron Artest -------------- $5,850,000
    Reggie Miller ----------- $5,625,000
    Jeff Foster -------------- $4,275,000
    Fred Jones ------------- $1,572,480
    Kenny Anderson -------- $0
    Primoz Brezec --------- $1,554,326
    Jamaal Tinsley --------- $1,554,326
    Anthony Johnson -------- $932,546
    Jamison Brewer ---------- $0
    James Jones -------------- $0

    Default How are draft picks figured in?

    If I'm the Orlando GM and I am starting over I start with Okafur. If the Pacers trade Al to Chicago for the 3rd pick and move that on to Orlando along with Bender and Pollard I would say they would feel pretty good. At # 3 they could pick Livingston and have the potential for a very exciting club.
    C Okafur
    SF Bender
    PF J. Howard
    SG Grant Hill
    PG Livingston

    Shoot, I might watch that team.

    Isn't Grant Hill toast?

    I'd try to do a straight up deal with Ron and Bender. At $12,240,000, that's extremely close to being right within your range, Jose.

    If we could swing a deal with Chicago to bring McGrady here, that's fine, too.

    Al Harrington + Jonathan Bender would be enough salary.

    As would Ron Artest + Jonathan Bender + $73,950 cash would too.

    If Orlando was willing, do the first one if Ron stays sane. If not, use the 2nd.

    There's no way this would ever happen, but:

    Al, Fred, Austin, our 1st rounder for Tmac and Steven Hunter.

    It also works with Pollard+JJ instead of Austin.

    They do get a lot of young talent, but alas, I feel it would take Ron instead of Al. Which also works.

    Yeah that frontline would be pretty scary.....in 2008.

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

    The Pacer offer must be fair to Orlando & be better than what any other team can offer them.
    Why? Isn't Orlando trying to get T-mac traded to a place on HIS list, because it is his option and if he doesn't like the team they want to send him to, McGrady could just walk away from Orlando and take his chance on the Free Agent market?

    If this is the case, we just have to have a better offer then the teams on T-mac's short list, right?

    Kinda like the Brad Miller fiasco? Get what you can, because he is going to walk. Honestly, I would love to have T-mac, but I don't want to totally scalp this team for him.

    You're crazy.

    I'll believe you if you can provide some kind of proof though.

    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    It's next year that he can walk away. So I imagine that the team that trades for him wants to make sure that he wants to play for them before the trade is made. Orlando also I imagine would perfer to send him West.

    The teams which we will be competing against will be playoff caliber teams with young talent to trade away while retaining a star to pair with T-mac. I could see NJ parting with RJ or K-mart and change, the Suns and Houston are possiblities. I have heard San Antonio as a possiblity. It is certianly not a 3 team race and Orlando will get a star in return.
    "They could turn out to be only innocent mathematicians, I suppose," muttered Woevre's section officer, de Decker.

    "'Only.'" Woevre was amused. "Someday you'll explain to me how that's possible. Seeing that, on the face of it, all mathematics leads, doesn't it, sooner or later, to some kind of human suffering."

    Well, I still don't see us getting Tmac. The three-way with Chicago is the most reasonable so far, and that one's still tricky.

    i donno about hill. But if it was up to me...He's been done for...
    don't leave drew gooden out of all this. He will probably be traded as well because he's a baby when he doesn't start.
    T-mac+JO=pacers championship....if it happens come back here...because that will happen. No team can stop tmac without throwing 3 guys at him and with JO and maybe artest on the team...theres NO WAY we lose many games.
