    Default T-Mac trade to Indy -- Should we do it?

    Ron, Al, and Bendy-straw for T-Mac and filler (presumably Howard and Lue).

    Would you do this trade?

    The first time around I said no, but I've changed my mind. Tracy is better than any of the players we give up, can play 2 positions well, and would only cost us one starter (which is a headcase), and two bench players (which are both full of potential, but have not really helped us to this point).

    DO IT DONNIE/LARRY.

    And then I said yes
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    Okay, who wants to volunteer to count how many McGrady threads are on the boards already?

    Yes I would. T-Mac and Howard and change = good enough for me.

    Yes.

    Do I think it will happen? No.

    Yes, do it.

    We could always trade Howard for a diffrent SF. His contract is just long but for 4.5 million or so a team in need of a veteran PF [Chicago, maybe, or Utah, Atlanta? T-Wolves?]

    I'm tired of the rumors, I think highly of TMac. I go for it.

    I just don't think we do it.

    I say we should do it.

    Pacers need to make a move to compete with the Pistons.

    Bender didn't exactly get us those 61 wins, and Harrington, at times played like a starter, but when he got the chance, he played more like a 6th man.

    So it would basically be Artest for McGrady right now.

    I am a bit afraid of what Bender "might" be once he's in his prime.

    But this year, is are year and we need someone who can create his own shots and spread the defence; yeah we have Reggie... but he shouldn't even be starting.

    I'm just hoping we make a pretty big trade without gutting out our whole team.

    We are the team that won 61 wins last year.

    So I think McGrady could help are scoring and could put us over the top next year.

    Doh!

    How tall is Howard?

    I know JO is really a PF, but we could start Howard at PF then move JO to C.

    JO should not be at C


    And I doubt we resign Brewer now that we have Wright.

    If it were any two of those players, it would probably be a fairly quick "yes". All three makes it really tough. I'm trying to find some perspective, and the best I can do is imagine if your team had T-Mac, who was locked up long term and did not want to leave. You are then offered Artest, Harrington, and Bender. Do you make that trade? I thinking likely not. Which means you would likely make the deal going the other way. So yeah, I guess I'd do it, although it really is a lot to give up.

    I counted the other day, and it was at 79. Probably close to 90 by now.

    I voted yes, but my vote is strictly conditional. I only want to trade for Tracy if we can be sure that Reggie is not a regular starter next year.
