Let's suppose that we select Mario Chalmers on draft night ahead of Sacramento, and lets suppose that DJ Augustin goes #10 to Portland, who is rumored to be moving up to New Jerseys spot to get Augustin.
Assuming all of that happens, and Sacramento is left with no chance to pick up a point guard on draft night, they might be the best combination in the league of a team both CRAZY enough and DESPERATE enough to take a gamble on Tinsley.
What would each team think of these potential deals?
1. Indiana trades Jamal Tinsley to Sacramento
Sacramento trades Mikki Moore to Indiana/
2. Indiana trades Jamal Tinsley to Sacramento.
Sacramento trades a signed and traded Anthony Johnson to Indiana
3. Indiana trades Jamal Tinsley to Sacramento.
Sacramento trades a signed and traded Lorenzen Wright to Indiana
Or, here is the topper:
4. Indiana trades Jamal Tinsley to Sacramento.
Sacramento trades Ron Artest to Indiana.
Indiana would immediately buy out the contract of Artest, who has an expiring deal instead of the 3 years left of Tinsley's, saving the Simons millions in real cash.
Any chance one of these deals, or something similar, happening?
