    No it wasn't. AP just broke this. He was "unhappy" but there was no official word. Well, here it is...

    http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/news?slu...v=ap&type=lgns

    Stojakovic said Thursday he told Kings general manager Geoff Petrie he wants to be traded from the only NBA team he has played for.

    ``I think the change would be good for the team and for myself,'' Stojakovic told The Associated Press in a telephone interview. ``That's the only explanation you're going to get from me.''

    Petrie did not immediately return a call seeking comment.

    Stojakovic, a three-time All-Star and the NBA's second-leading scorer last season, has been with the Kings since entering the league in 1998. He was upset that the Kings lost countryman Vlade Divac to the Los Angeles Lakers as a free agent and feels it's time to move on.

    The Kings were eliminated in the second round of the playoffs last season, losing in seven games to the Minnesota Timberwolves.

    ``You could see this year, late in the year, we didn't have good chemistry and didn't play good basketball,'' Stojakovic said. ``I just think that the team had their chances, and opportunities are closing, and the team needs new players.

    ``I'm probably one of the easiest players to trade, and I'm willing to go.''

    Well, Vince just announced he wants to be traded, just switch them for each other.

    Difference is, Peja makes just under 7mm. Vince makes over 12mm. The Kings let Vlade go for budget reasons. You really think they'd give up Peja plus another 5mm in contracts just to get Vince? I don't.

    Of course, Ron only makes 5.8mm, and would actually lower their team salary.... (You could trade them straight up if the Pacers add some cash to the deal)

    The Maloofs have plenty of money. They own casinos so I'm sure they can afford an extra few million.
    And the Kings don't necessarily have to trade him just because he wants to be.

    I know I'm higher on VC than most people, but hell yes! Can you imagine him in a Princeton offense? Plus, he wouldn't have to be "the man", either. Also, he gets knocked for all his injuries, but in Sacramento, that'd make him fit right in.

    I see I'm talking to someone that thinks money doesn't enter into it, and someone who still thnks Vince is better than Ron. I'll just stop now.

    Was that directed towards me?

    a) I was joking about the money. Perhaps I should have thrown in a after the .

    b) Where do you get me saying that Vince is better than Ron??? I said that I'd rather have Vince than Peja and Ron than Peja. Logic dictates I don't think much of Peja, which is sad considering his ppg and fg%.

    Do you think there is any way we could trade for Peja with out giving up Ron? For Example, Something like Bender, Pollard, and a pick for Peja. It would work Salary wise, and it would give us a excellent shooter.

    I guess the question is would the Kings even buy into such a trade? I'm not too sure if they would, then again you never know.

    Goodbye Ron, hello Peja.

    If this doesn't happen, I will be very, very surprised. It would only be because the Kings don't want Ron.

    The philosophy doesn't change, the players executing the philosophy change. Won't be as great a defensive team, but we'd still be a defense-first team.

    I'd have to disagree with that. I believe Ron is the biggest part of the team's defense. If he's gone, I see a shift in the team philosophy.

    Exactly. Rick, Mike, and Kevin will still preach defense first every day and twice on Sundays.

    They may preach it, but I'm not sure how much you'll see from Peja.

    Ron for Peja is a downgrade.
    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!

    In your humble opinion.

    Our defense will be built around JO. Team defense is never built around one swingman. If we are going to compare him to the KG's and Duncan's of the league we better believe that he can do it. Jackson will step up as our stopper on D. Not that he'll be as good. But we will have someone.

    What was the quote Bird made about Peja this Spring? I can't remember it.
    "They could turn out to be only innocent mathematicians, I suppose," muttered Woevre's section officer, de Decker.

    "'Only.'" Woevre was amused. "Someday you'll explain to me how that's possible. Seeing that, on the face of it, all mathematics leads, doesn't it, sooner or later, to some kind of human suffering."

    You guys really don't know that much about Peja..do ya?

    I d k about you guys, but when he wasn't helping with the scoring load in the playoffs, he was making HUGE defensive stops and getting rebounds.

    You guys are stero-typing him because he is a Euro Player and they are score FIRST and defend LATER.

    Peja isn't like that anymore. You guys will be surprised if he got traded here.

    Hmmm, I really dont wanna see Ron traded, but if it had to happen then I think I could live with Peja based upon our current team. It would take us from one of the worst outside shooting teams to one of the best in 2 trades. SJax could play SF if Peja was getting beat on defense consistantly. It would limit our low post scoring options to...JO, I wonder how well Rick's system would handle it...

    Rick's system will be taylored to the personnel.

    And thank you for the good report on Peja, sactolover.

    I think we'll be at worst as good with this trade. Reason being is our team defense will still be strong (just not as strong), but our offense improves considerably, not to mention our shooting %.

    Exactly what Hicks said...

    Just the only thing you gotta worry about with Peja...is his scoring during the playoffs.
