    Default Granger and Tyler Hansbrough for Eric Gordon and Okafor

    Who would say no? If its structured as 2 separate deals it will work under the cap. I'd say yes as a Pacers fan, and I think New Orleans would as well. Reason being.

    1. Gordon is a native Hoosier and would most likely be willing to sign an extension here

    2. Granger is a NO native and would represent a tremendous local draw

    3. Emeka Okafor provides this Pacers squad with the post defense and rebounding that we simply have no had here since Foster and JO were prime time players. You can argue Okafor would be the 1st real post enforcer type since Dale Davis was in his prime.

    New Orleans says yes because they receive 2 assets that are willing to stay in New Orleans through a rebuild. The Pacers say yes because George fills the 3 and we fill our 2 biggest needs through this trade.


    Thoughts?

    I will have to vote no on this one, but not for the reason you may think. Danny would hurt but I could part with him. Hansbrough I am just not willing to give up. He is becoming very valuable, very quickly.

    We finally get things going in the right direction and you want to do something like this. Give this team a chance. I for one am sick of hearing about Eric Gordon.

    No.

    I Agree with Doctor-H. This team finally gets something going and people already want to blow it up for Eric Gordon.

    I like EJ. I do. But let's give this team a chance.
    Stop quoting people I have on ignore!

    The only way we're getting EJ is through free agency and we have a realistic chance.

    Gordon is younger and better than Granger is right now. Okafor is better than most are willing to give him credit for. I do think we should wait and see if we can get Gordon via free agency without having to give up a piece for him, but this is not a bad deal.

    Gordon only made it thru 1 game before getting hurt. Surprised? Shouldnt be. The guy is worthless if he cant play. Why would we trade two of our better players for him? I wouldnt trade either of those guys for him even up. The guy who started this thread must be a huge Hornets fan. Because they would make out with one of the most lop-sided trades in NBA history!

    Love Godon, but too many health concerns. Anyone that gives him a max contract will regret it.

    Now really free Lance!

    The funny thing is that I would do this trade in a heartbeat and I am one of the people that is sick of hearing about Gordon.

    Okafor would fit perfectly between Hibbert and West. He could play with both. He would be a much better rebounder and shot blocking presence than Hansborough. Gordon is younger than Granger by roughly six years, so we get a better time horizon for our wing. I think we win this trade by a country mile other than taking on the extra salary to sign Gordon and Hibbert, which we would definitely do.
    "Your course, your path, is not going to be like mine," West says. "Everybody is not called to be a multimillionaire. Everybody's not called to be the president. Whatever your best work is, you do it. Do it well. You cease your own greatness when you aspire to be someone else."

    George and Ty are thee only players on this roster I guarantee Bird will not part with.

    A Granger for EG trade straight up I am sure Bird would do. But he is in love with Ty, and for good reason.

    If Tyler's untouchable then Bird's an absolute moron.

    And he's a genius if he gets rid of Ty for Okafor, and that ridiculous contract?

    Ty brings something to this team that is not easily replaced.. heart.
