    If Zeke can get Portland to take Allan Houston for Abdur-Rahim, he gets my vote for executive of the year.
    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!

    No kidding. I'd rather have an unhappy 'Reef sitting on the bench for one season than Houston's insane contract.

    Forget the contracts, since (1) they're both way overpaid, and (2) we're talking about Portland and NY, so these teams are so far over the salary cap that money isn't an issue.

    I'd rather have Houston.
    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

    I can't see Portland taking AH. It would have to be a package including KT.

    This is all fine but Orlando's behind the times. Supposedly, while A-R would still like a trade, he has kissed and made up with management - he will report to camp and play for the team though it isn't his first choice.

    Houston has 3 years left. I think it is an issue. No way this trade happens without some major incentive from the Knicks.



    ps. Austin and Scot for Shareef works... Not that it would ever happen. We're already so weak inside. But

    Well, since I'm playing with Real GM...

    Indiana trades: PF Austin Croshere (5.0 ppg, 3.2 rpg, 0.7 apg in 13.7 minutes)
    C Scot Pollard (1.7 ppg, 2.7 rpg, 0.2 apg in 11.1 minutes)
    Indiana receives: PF Antonio Davis (8.8 ppg, 8.4 rpg, 1.7 apg in 32.1 minutes)
    Change in team outlook: +2.1 ppg, +2.5 rpg, and +0.8 apg.

    Portland trades: PF Shareef Abdur-Rahim (16.3 ppg, 7.5 rpg, 2.0 apg in 31.6 minutes)
    Portland receives: PF Austin Croshere (5.0 ppg, 3.2 rpg, 0.7 apg in 77 games)
    C Scot Pollard (1.7 ppg, 2.7 rpg, 0.2 apg in 61 games)
    Change in team outlook: -9.6 ppg, -1.6 rpg, and -1.1 apg.

    Chicago trades: PF Antonio Davis (8.8 ppg, 8.4 rpg, 1.7 apg in 32.1 minutes)
    Chicago receives: PF Shareef Abdur-Rahim (16.3 ppg, 7.5 rpg, 2.0 apg in 85 games)
    Change in team outlook: +7.5 ppg, -0.9 rpg, and +0.3 apg.

    TRADE ACCEPTED

    I'm not particularly fond of Antonio and A-R is the best player in the trade, but AD gives us a little more size inside. Plus his contract is up 1 year before Austin's.

    Humm... Works with Cleveland and Z instead of Chicago and AD. Of course, I don't think that makes sense for either Portland or Cleveland...

    Portland is set to have some major cap clearage next year, I don't think they'd take on Houston's contract.
