    Default Trade Idea for Foster to Denver

    Denver uses its trade exception to send to Houston for Brian Cook.

    Cook makes 3.5M as an expiring contract. They then turn around and send him to the Pacers along with Malik Allen and Ronaldo Balkman for Foster.

    Yes Balkman has this and three more years remaining on his deal, but the last three years are at 1.675M per year. He is great defensively and can push our team in practice and he can play SF or PF. He would be a bench player for the most part, but he is very athletic and would be the only piece of this deal that we would retain. Plus, we get $5M in savings off next year's salary cap figure.

    We would obviously cut Allen and Cook.

    I love the deal. Would like it a little more if we could just get Balkman and maybe a late first rounder.

    It will be interesting to see what happens with Foster. Solomon Jones has been getting minutes and we have Hansbrough as well.

    Balkman is a consumate hustle/ role player. He rebounds and runs the court well.

    I don't think it'd be possible to trade Cook a second time if he's combined with other players.

    Within 24 hours is ok.
    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!
