    Default Do you understand what the Magic are doing

    Assuming the Magic trade McGrady for Cato, Mobley, and Francis I don't understand why they are willing to make that trade.

    Am I wrong or have the Rockets been trying to get a true point guard for the past several seasons. And haven't they said that a backcourt of Franicis and Mobley won't work and that one of those two had to be moved. Either trade Francis for a true point guard, or trade Mobley for a true point guard and move Francis to the shooting guard.

    Having said that then why in the heck would the Magic trade for both Mobley and Francis. I really don't understand.

    I think there are better trades out there

    Do you agree with me.

    maybe this is why the Magic only won 21 games this past season, terrible trades

    I agree, don't know what the Magic are doing.

    They trade a star because he doesn't want to play there for another star who doesn't want to play there.

    They must think alot of Mobley/Cato.

    Not only are they packing McGrady, but also Lue and Howard.

    Along the same tune, why would Orlando want redundant players Artest, Bender and Harrington? Seems to me we are just pushing our 3 SF problem to them. Of course maybe their plans would be to move Artest to the 2.

    We wouldn't have traded all 3. They either would have had Ron at 3 and Al at 4 or Al and JB at either/or.

    This makes me think Donnie did not offer up Ron

    any deal that we could have made involving Ron is better than that.

    You really think so?

    I think McGrady is the best we can do for him, of course we would be sending another player or players.

    But if Ron wasn't offered, that makes me think we're keeping Ron unless DWLBRC have something up their sleeves.

    2 questions:

    1) Do you think the Pacers offered Artest to the Magic

    2) What do you think was the Pacers "best offer" for McGrady

    I bet Ron was offered, but Francis was judged to be more marketable. Now apparently he will demand a trade.

    11.3 million +/- 15% anyone?

    not the Pacers, please. I'm not a franchise fan.
    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)

    Great Questions...If anyone knows the real answers, it will explain why Tmac won't be playing for us next season.

    Either One of these things must have happened.

    1) DW and LB did NOT offer up Artest. They made have said Al, Bender, Fred or whatever, but no Ron.

    2) DW and LB offered up Ron but not Al or Bender. Something like Ron/Cro. It seems the Magic are looking for quantity here...3-4 solid players.

    UncleBuck, in regards to your first question, I think the Magic aren't trying to win this year, they're just trying to get as much value as possible for McGrady. It's easy to move either player at a later date.

    In regards to your second question, I think the Pacers offered Artest/Pippen/Pollard/#3/#29 for McGrady/Howard.

    Maybe they included Freddy, hard to say.
    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!

    Agreed. Except David Benner's name is spelled with two n's.

    I wouldn't do that deal anyway. Think we could get them to take Kravitz instead?

    We'd have a better chance of trading Croshere than Kravitz...

    A core of Francis/Mobley/Cato/Okafor could win that SE division if things go well. Hope Gooden plays well out of position or Hill actually plays.

    Francis will sell more tickets than Artest/Al whoever from the Pacers will too.

    Okay, I just about died laughing. There really needs to be a :laughuntilheadexplodes: smilie.

    Also, for those of you who aren't Pacemate obsessed, Rebekah didn't show up the last month or two, so we aren't really losing much of anything. Just pretend she's a better looking Danny Ferry.

    Mmm, pizza.

    Don't let yourself get caught up in the "-2.0 breasts" stat. It's not like they were really good breasts or anything. Chicago requested Jessica, but I talked them down. You should be thankful.

    Jessica's breasts are the Shaquille O'Neal of Pacemateland. They just dominate everything else on the floor.
