    Default Vecsey: Tinsley to Nuggets is done

    Really hope this isn't his idea of a sick joke. Still waiting for other stories to hit wires.

    Locked-out Pacers point Jamaal Tinsley was traded to the Nuggets for Chuckie Atkins and Stephen Hunter, The Post has learned.
    The deal is contingent on Tinsley passing a physical. Chronically injured over the last four years (only once playing more than 42 games) and embroiled in violent encounters on three separate occasions (none of which he instigated), he spent all summer in Atlanta rehabbing his body and is said to be a great condition.
    Denver assumes his $21M, 3-year debt. Atkins is due $3.24M and $3.48M while Hunter is guaranteed $3.86M and $3.69M. Less than half of their total salary remaining is guaranteed.
    Go Pacers!

    This is great value for us cap wise

    Atkins is 3.5 off the books next summer and hunter is another 3.5 in two years.

    I was just hoping to shed a year of tinsley's deal.

    I also like Hunter as a big man who can block shots. He is a bigger version of Baston.

    Vescey also does stuff for ESPN, perhaps that is where you know him from?

    what a wonderful deal, if true!

    (not for what we got back, but for what we got rid of)

    Great!

    The bad news is we now have 17 guaranteed contracts.

    Technical question.....

    How can Atkins pass a physical when he just had surgery last week and is expected to be out for at least 6 weeks?

    Cut Atkins... he's the odd man out at the point and will likely become disgruntled if he has to help with a rebuilding effort... then cut McBob and Cro and we're all set.

    I know that means that we essentially pay for someone not to play. But at the most we pay them for only a year not to play for us. It is better than paying them 3 years not to play for us. And at a cheaper price right?

    Vecsey has never done stuff for ESPN.

    I think this is a great trade. Atkins is a really good backup. Hunter at one time was a athletic power forward (when I say at one time I just remember him from his Orlando days)

    I would expect Atkins to be on the roster

    Per Mike Wells blog this morning:

    October 3, 2008
    No Tinsley deal
    Posted by Mike Wells

    I've talked to a couple people - one from the Pacers camp and another from the Nuggets camp - this morning and both sides say point guard Jamaal Tinsley has not been traded to Denver for point guard Chucky Atkins and center Steven Hunter as reported by the New York Post.

    The deal, if true, would have pushed the Pacers roster up to 17 players.

    The Pacers have talked to the Nuggets, along with just about every other team in the NBA, about Tinsley, but they've yet to be able to come up with a deal.

    Peter V sucks. It is that simple. His "reports" should be banned on this forum and all of humanity if this is not true.

    He is horrible at his job.

    According to that, it was agreed to, but, "Rex Chapman used his veto power to reject the deal."

    It was a flat realization this morning for me: I first heard about this by reading Wells' blog and wondered what I'd missed.

    Too bad. I would have been happy with this trade.

    I just can't shake this stupid guy...

    I'm a Pacers fan first, but a Nuggets fan second, since moving out here.

    Well, he would fit right in on the squad out here. I'd be real curious to see how he did guarding SGs that Iverson can't match up with.

    This deal is mixed for me. '

    Denver will be better with Tinsley than Atkins
    They have AI, Carmelo, & Tinsley. Tinsley is a good player who would benefit having two top tier NBA players with him.

    The Pacers will have 17 players under contract.
    Do we send Hibbert to the D League?
    Do we send Rush to the D League?
    Do we make another trade?
    Who do we cut?

    I understand Tinsley will not play in the Blue N Gold again but it is more ideal we package him in a 2-1 deal.

    I think this deal may still have some life. People crap on Vescey, and he certainly hasn't been perfect throughout the years. However, he has broken a few stories regarding the Pacers, including Bender for AD and Isiah as the new head coach.

    Who knows, maybe he is trying to drive up the price for Tinsley for Miami and Golden State (ala Donnie Walsh's old tricks)?

    With that said, I could see something where the Pacers cut Hunter and he resigns with Denver to shore up their frontcourt. If the deal were to go through, I could also see the Pacers doing a few minor deals as well.

    I may be wrong but sending a player to the D-league does not mean freeing up a roster spot...
    I have difficulties envisioning another multiplayer deal from our side without involving a player close to the core
    I guess we'd cut Atkins right away, Cro and McBob. I know Hunter has been injured last season but I remember him as the guy who stole Dalembert's starting spot before being traded.
    Anyway it seems the deal is dead (though it would have made sense for both sides), I hate freakin Vescey, the news had just made my day, dang!
