NYK sends to IND - Malik Rose 7,647,500 and David Lee 1,788,033 (9,435,533)
IND sends to PHO - Jamaal Tinsley 6,750,000 and Shawne Williams 1,572,960 (8,322,960)
PHO sends to NYK - Boris Diaw 9,000,000
The Pacers will also send NYK their 2010 First Round Pick (or '09 2nd and Cash).
This trade gets Diaw to NYK. Phoenix gets rid of his salary for the backup PG they need. It gives them a former first round wing player to replace Diaw and learn behind bell and hill. Indy gets an expiring Rose to be able to resign Lee next year.
That gives us a core of Ford, Rush, Granger, Lee, and Hibbert.
The only hang up on this deal I would think would be NY taking on Diaw's deal. I know we don't want to give up draft picks, but Lee would fill in our PF need for the future. and at that point we would be loaded with recent draft picks as it is and it would still allow us the flexibility to sign our young guys.
