With the Pacers on a bad losing streak, how soon will Bird make a move? Any chance they take McGrady's fat contract?
I believe them when they say they won't fire Jim O'Brien. Bird is a pretty loyal guy and I think he's far more disgusted with the pathetic effort of some of the players than he is with the coach. Two guys who have some trade value are Troy Murphy and Jeff Foster. Both have only one more year left on the contract after this one. Murphy can really spread the defense and Foster is a very good post defender. I could see the Cavs making a serious run at Murphy and a number of teams in the West challenging the Lakers make a run at Foster. A lot of those teams lack a player to guard Pau Gasol. Blazers would be a great fit. So would Jazz
