Thread: Idea: Swap with Thunder

    Default Idea: Swap with Thunder

    Pacers Get: Etan Thomas
    Thunder Get: TJ Ford

    Why for Pacers? I really think this team can do just as poorly with Watson and Head at point guard as they can if Ford is in there. Simply a salary dump. Thomas's contract comes off the books after this year while TJ has a player's option for next season.

    Why for Thunder? They are currently the 8th seed in the West at 10-8. They really don't have a good backup to Russell Westbrook. They have a very talented team capable of making the playoffs but TJ would really help them out. He would be a perfect fit there really because Westbrook can easily slide over and play the two when TJ is on the floor.

    I'm game. I doubt that the Thunder will take themselves out of the 2010 sweepstakes for TJ Ford's sake, however.

    I thought about this but really who would they go after? Do they even have that much money to spend?

    I doubt the Thunder plan on being active beyond bargain players and re-signings in the 2010 Free Agency period.

    The Thunder will have enough to throw the max at somebody. If they can land a star, you've got a championship contender.

    No, they probably won't...not with the cap dropping to around $50mm.

    TJ Ford is on the Thunder on my 2k season mode.
    "I keep wondering the same thing. Last week they had the 4th worst record in the league, had an 11.9 percent chance of winning the lottery and were in line to land a franchise type player like Derrick Favors or DeMarcus Cousins. This week? They have a 1.7 percent chance of winning the lottery, have the 8th worst record and are in line to draft Cole Aldrich or Greg Monroe. Way to go Jim O'Brien. Rest Danny Granger the rest of the season (if it isn't too late) and give Josh McRoberts lots of minutes. That ought to do it." - Chad Ford on winning meaningless games

    Way to go Jim, you may have just put our franchise back another 4+ years.
