    Not at a salary hit of 8.5 million this year.

    I doubt there is a team in the league with that much cap space that is in that big of a need for Ford. And plus, if they do have that much cap space, they can just sign him after his buyout for cheap and keep their draft pick.

    But TJ isn't going to be on the wish list for a team with that much room.

    I'm not high on Collison, and as much as I dogged Murphy during his first year with the team, I am upset that we weren't the first team he made the playoffs with. I doubt New Jersey will be either.
    I'm not as high on him either, I don't really know if he's much more than a really good backup. That being said, Murphy & Posey is a fair price for him, even as a really good backup. At the very least, he's another asset we could package down the road with Dunleavy or Posey again.

    Can Posey play power forward?
    Dahntay did.

    When can we swing him to a contender for future pieces?
    I think it's three months if we include other pieces. But we could trade him whenever if we sent him alone. Whether anyone else wants him now is a question.

    Wow - it's like the end of "The Godfather" - Bird's settling all family business.
    I find it embarrassing to quote myself, but I just wanted to add that - if Bird does buy out Ford - I will henceforth refer to TJ as "Moe Green."

    I'm guessing that you're being sarcastic about Posey playing PF.
    I don't really follow a lot of teams outside of the Pacers. I know he's primarily a SF, but I was wondering if Miami, Boston or New Orleans ever used him as a PF. Judging by your inference that I was being sarcastic, I am assuming the answer to that question is no.

    I can't find the link ( it's a recent Twitter from Wells on the right side of yesterday's Blog by Wells at http://blogs.indystar.com/pacersinsider/that does not appear on Wells' Twitter page ), but Wells says:

    T.J Ford says he's not interested in taking a buyout from the Pacers.
    I guess TJ will be sitting behind the bench along with the rookies in a suit.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    D'Allesandro reports the official announcement will be later this afternoon.

    http://www.nj.com/nets/index.ssf/201...ta_native.html

    They will announce later this afternoon that they have acquired Troy Murphy, the former Delbarton High star who has been languishing in Indiana the past 3 seasons, according to an agent who has an interest in the five-player swap.
    and...

    The Pacers, therefore are the big winners in the deal because they finally get their starting-quality point guard in Collison; and the Rockets were the only team that isn’t entering the deal with much enthusiasm, but are taking part in the deal for monetary reasons.
    !!!!!
    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

    As long as TJ doesn't mope about playing time or his role, I wouldn't care if he stuck around. Obviously, we need to free up some roster spots to sign Magnum Rolle though.

    Doesn't Collison have 1 year left on his contract?
    I think that 2011-12 is a team option.

    That's a good deal if it goes through. Hopefully Collison isn't a one-hit wonder and can play the point on a nightly base with enhanced minutes. For the time being he will probably be backed up by Stephenson, granted that the buyout of Ford is successful.

    Is A.J. Price's contract / salary guarenteed already or is there an option to be picked up?

    I think TJ's playing chicken, thinking that the Pacers will just waive him outright - which they might.

    So do we change his name from Larry Legend to Don Legend?

    AJ's contract is only partially guaranteed - $175k (IIRC) as of 8/1. This trade actually makes AJ's roster spot more secure.

    Uhg... even if we buyout Solo.. w/o being able to buyout TJ we can't sign Rolle... Selfish TJ, doesn't he know he hurts his stock more not taking a buyout and sitting the bench than being a free agent?

    stunning... Bird did something...He actually did something good.

    It's happy hour at PD and the drinks are on me!
    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)

    You're right...he's a SG/SF. Before signing with the Hornets, Posey was the good luck charm for Teams. When he went to Miami, the Heat won a Championship. When he went to the Celtics, they won a Championship. Of course, I guess that trading for Shaq ( for the Heat ) and then the Celtics trading for KG/Allen makes a huge difference.

    If he still has some gas in his tank...my guess is that JO'B will play Posey ( specifically a Vet that can still hit the 3pt shot and shows some inkling for perimeter defense ) behind Granger/Dunleavy/BRush in the SG/SF rotation.

    I always wanted Posey on the Pacers....too bad it's 3 or 4 years too late.
