I'm sure that Seth's head will explode if we do this trade because I'm sure he will point out that last season we could have Just used the pick to take Lawson and used the pick this year to get a more athletic power forward.
Oh well, if this trade does go down I don't think I will be upset. We need a point guard in the worst of ways and we are not going to get a better one in this draft where we are pick from anyway.
THE `BURBS - Here's an interesting item Chad Ford wrote in his blog Monday.
"A number of NBA sources are telling me that the Denver Nuggets are in the hunt for a Top 10 pick. Nuggets GM Mark Warkentein has been calling around trying to gauge interest in teams selling the pick. According to sources Warkentein is offering Ty Lawson for the pick."
The Pacers are interested in Lawson, according to a source.
The Pacers are willing to give up their pick - No. 10 - in next week's draft to get player that will help them immediately.
The Pacers wouldn't be searching for a point guard if they had taken Lawson instead of Tyler Hansbrough last year. Lawson, who was the Pacers' second option, averaged 8.3 points and 3.1 assists last season.
Lawson, Jrue Holiday, Jeff Teague, Darren Collison and Eric Maynor were all still available when the Pacers picked at No. 13.
Speaking of Collison, the Pacers have reached out to New Orleans about the former UCLA point guard.
