    Default Pacers Celtics Hornets

    Pacers Trade:
    Roy Hibbert
    Darren Collison
    Dahntay Jones
    2012 First round pick

    Recieve:
    Rajon Rondo
    Emeka Okafor

    Celtics Trade:
    Rajon Rondo

    Recieve:
    Darren Collison
    Roy Hibbert
    Dahntay Jones

    Hornets Trade:
    Emeka Okafor

    Recieve:
    2012 First round pick

    Our New Team:

    Rondo/Hill/Price
    George/Hill/Stephenson
    Granger/George
    West/Hansbrough
    Okafor/Foster

    Probably the best defensive starting 5 in the league, with decent bench depth (Wish we had a backup 3 though)
    Who says no?

    I don't mind this trade, but a 1st for Okafor is to much. His salary is just to much. Maybe throw one of their young gaurds in that trade with Okafor for that pick. Maybe Vasques or Henry.

    Added, This would be adding a lot of salary too. I cant get to those numbers right now, but 4 players with 10m plus.

    I agree there's a lot of salary going in, but we can absorb it.

    We're giving up on 2 decent players, but get 1 decent player and 1 player who will become the best player on our roster.
    Sure, Hibbert > Okafor. but Rondo >>>> Collison.
    Then give an available backup SF part of the MLE to improve our depth...
    This is the best defensive starting 5 in the league. for sure. The offense is limited but we still have bench depth.
    Okafor in the paint, Granger&George on the wings, Rondo pressuring the ball...

    By the way, this trade isn't around Okafor, it's around Rondo. I just think he's the best available center that we could get without giving up on any of our core guys.

    I could live with this.

    Hate to lose Hibbert, but like I've said, only way I'd trade Hibbert is if it was for a huge upgrade. Rondo is a huge upgrade. Okafor is a good defender too.
    Lance + Starting SG = Awesome

    Now really free Lance!

    One thing is clear to me. As much as I like DC, this team is built to have a true PG, and he's just not the guy. I would REALLY hate to lose Roy though.
