    Default Ric Bucher on JO trade (update: JO to Cavs??) (Update Post #41)

    Ric Beucher (or however you spell the moron's name) was just on ESPN radio and said the O'Neal to Toronto trade died on Sunday. He also said that JO had not worked out on his knee any.

    With this guy's past, I guess we can assume that O'Neal will be in Toronto soon.

    Why would Mike Wells report it on Monday if it was dead Sunday?

    Because one or both of them is woefully misinformed?

    In the other thread it said it died this afternoon... so Bueucher has that wrong... plus he's totally off that JO hasn't been working out... I don't know why he even gets paid...

    A number of NBA veterans including Jermaine O'Neal, Mike Miller and Al Harrington have been joining a plethora of prospects including Joe Alexander, Marreese Speights, Richard Hendrix, Malik Hairston and international mystery men Nathan Jawai and Giorgi Shermadini.

    Maybe the spies didn't see the level of rehab and working out that they expected?

    Ah, Bball, you're a trip.

    Say what you want about the guy, but he does work out in the summer. That's not his problem.
    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!

    I don't doubt he works out in the summer... doing what he wants to do and when he wants to do it.

    I think when JO is gone we're going to learn alot about his work ethic, demands, etc... and it isn't going to be nearly as close to the ideal that we would hope or have been led to believe.

    I bet he kills puppies over the summer.

    "'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."

    Mmm... I doubt that, Bball. One of the things about JO that I always liked was that he always got back the next season with something in his arsenal. Be it better defense, better passing, gain some extra weight or muscles (on request from management) or whatever. The dude works hard in the summer I have no doubt about him there at all.

    Agreed, I will not fault the guy for constantly trying to improve his game.

    On the idea the deal is dead: I realize I receive the early edition of the IS but both the report of the trade and Kravitz' column are in the paper this AM. They had enough time to do it, so I'm thinking if the deal were truely dead they would have pulled the articles and put in the dead dog story....wouldn't they?

    Well.. I still think it's positive we had this story pop up... the more we get of those about JO, generally, the better. Makes it clear that there's interest from more then one angle, so we probably won't be completely bend over.

    Another note, the Toronto Star's Doug Smith is still reporting the deal. He notes concerns over health and that there are other suitors for TJ Ford, but it seems that there's decent reason to believe that it may still be alive, but just on hold.

    From Toronto's perspective, this has to be the biggest risk/biggest reward scenario. If JO is healthy, then he could help them make a big jump in the East. I don't think Diaw would be a huge difference maker for them, and I'm not sure who the other teams mentioned (Portland, Miami, Sacramento, Cleveland) would have that would offer as big of a potential bump (or bust) as JO. (Of course, that depends on what you think of today's Ron Artest.)

    I also had heard some rumors that there have been conversations with Chicago, but I cannot find any documentation so take that with a grain of salt.

    I'm hoping we're getting close to resolution on JO. I admit that I was one of the Odom and Bynum crowd last summer, and I'm feeling pretty burned by the 42-game JO, so I'm just ready to be done with it. It also helps that I like Ford and think he'll be a good starting point guard for years to come.

    If this trade goes thru it will probably not be announced til after the draft so the teams can verify the players they wanted are available.

    Could be, geezer. Down here in Brown County, the edition we get is so far behind that if a game ends after 8:00PM or so, they list it as "too late to report" the next morning.

    Seriously.
