    This would be absolutely amazing! I don't even care if we have to absorb Posey, getting Collison is definitely worth it!! Bird, make it happen!

    I agree Hicks, we will figure something out at the 4 (hopefully Hans?), if not, we still have other expirings to offer and maybe Horford next summer?

    My only question though, is what is in this for Houston? An Ariza for C. Lee swap? I haven't looked up salary numbers, but is this a dumb of salary in Ariza? Or do they just want more of a defensive specialist in Lee?

    You have it mixed up....the Rockets signed Ariza as a Defensive Specialist already. I still do not know why the Rockets would want to move Ariza after a single season.....my best guess is due to 2010 LT concerns.

    Can someone run the #s?

    Given that the Nets are the only Team under the Cap....it's hard for me to figure out if the Salaries match.

    On the surface, something does not jive here for me. I know why the Pacers are doing this....I guess I can figure out why the Nets are doing this ( solid value in the Frontcourt for simply moving one of their many GFs while not impacting their 2011-2012 Salary Cap )...but I can't figure out why the Hornets are doing this ( as it impacts their long-term SalaryCap...something that I thought that they were trying to avoid by trying to dump Okafor ) and why the Rockets are doing this ( other then reducing long-term SalaryCap concerns ).

    I was about to hit the "thanks" button but you f'ed it up with than second paragraph.

    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    Depending on how Foster is doing and how far along TPTB think Hansbrough will be before returning....I'd suspect that we'd be seeing more Granger and George at the PF spot with some limited "spot" minutes. Regardless, I'd have suspected that Granger would have been playing some backup minutes at the PF spot with George getting some "rookie" minutes.

    Oh Wow!

    Just saw this come across Twitter.

    This would be such a coup for us!

    I like Murph as a person and teammate, but we've long established that he is hindering us rather than help us for quite some time now.

    This way he can go to his hometown team! I am sure he would be happy about that... Right?

    Not sure is anyone said this already but, hopefully we will buy out posey and sign Magnum if this deal gets done, I wouldn't mind that, not knocking Collisons potential but I think that George Hill would have fit better with the players that we currently have on our team but I guess we will see how this turns out... Good Luck Collison..

    No way. If we were buying anyone just to open up a roster spot for Rolle, it would either be SJones on the low end or TJFord on the high end.

    I think folks overlook Posey. He is a very serviceable player. His fit is probably much better for the Pacers than for New Orleans. He is able to hit the open 3, which JOB will like, and he also plays pretty decent defense, which everyone will like.

    George Hill is not a PG. COllison. Go look at his last four games of the season alone and you will have to change into clean boxers.

    Just a couple of notes here.

    First, thank you to flox for starting this thread. Man, you were all over it with all the links!

    Second, I wonder which team (or teams) initiated this trade. Not that it is a big deal, but someone had to get the ball rolling, and I think it would be interesting to know how it all came about.

    Lastly, NO MORE MURPH-LEAVY comments can be made after this trade. It seems like those two have been joined at the hip forever. Maybe this will be good for both of them.

    I'd be cool with that. I'd assume that Solo would be involved somehow to balence out the roster to 15.

    PG - Collison/AJ/Ford
    SG/SF - BRush/Granger/Dunleavy/Lance/George/Inferno/Posey
    PF/C - Hibbert/Foster/Hansbrough/McRoberts/Rolle

    This would make it easier for us to move Dunleavy.

    This is such a big and confusing trade..need time to digest. Pacers are big winners so far but rest looks murky. I like it for NO and Hou, but NJ..? Murphy isn't bad for that team and will add some wins, but is that what they really want right now?

    I know that the Nets have a Ba-Jillionaire for an owner....but if the Nets are looking for Murphy to tutor Favors.....it's cheaper to buy a chair and tell Favors...."here, just do what this chair is doing."

    But then Yi Jianlian would probably break the scoring record against him.
