What does the O.J. Mayo trade attempt teach us? Seconds after hearing the trade had fallen apart, I began to ask what points have been made and what questions were raised.
 Brandon Rush is not a part of this franchise's future.
 Josh McRoberts is expendable.
 Mike Dunleavy will not wear a Pacers uniform next year.
 The Pacers believe a power forward will be available for sign or trade this summer.
 The Pacers believe they need to improve their offense.
 The Pacers expect very little from the draft.
 Paul George may not be the shooting guard of the [near] future. Does that mean he is the small forward of the future?
 Will Josh McRoberts be re-signed?
Obviously, many of these points and questions have been topics of debate for sometime on the board. However, if you look at the broken-trade carefully it adds closure to many of these questions. The most definitive conclusions, however, could only be made if we knew exactly what role O.J. Mayo was expected to have.
