    Default Pacers Raptors

    Pacers get:
    Leandro Barbosa
    2012 2nd round pick

    Raptors get:
    AJ Price
    2012 1st round pick

    I really like Barbosa and what he would bring.
    He plays taller then he is.
    He can easily create his own shot.
    He drives to the basket, a real slasher.
    He plays solid defense.
    He'd be exciting to watch with Hill and Jones.
    He's a tough guy ... and an expiring.

    He's on a losing team with a 7.5 mil contract.
    Not to many teams can take that contract on.
    Raptors are not going to get many, if any offers for him.
    They could use an extra 1st rnd pick to help their future.
    They will have a high 2nd rnd pick and Pacers will have a low 1st.
    Swap and Raptors move up about 15 - 20 spots.
    Leandro will walk this summer.
    I think that's a really good deal for him.

    He cant play any defence.

    Hes a really soft player

    He can play good defense and he is not soft at all.
    Watch him in the playoff years with the Suns. He brings it.
    You shouldn't view his play as soft when he plays for a losing team. He plays with a lot of intensity, which we need off the bench. We also need scoring off the bench which he would bring.

    Dude...unless I'm thinking of some other player, Leandro is pretty much awful on defense. He can get some steals because he over-commits all the time. The bad FAR outweighs the good from him on D.

    And there's a wee bit of history with him and the Pacers. I don't see him as a fit at all.

    To be honest, you were willing to give too much.

    Larry got him in the price of a steal. Me likes

    Exactly, a first rounder for Barbosa? A rental bench guard plus giving up AJ...Don't think that's a good deal....

    Yep, that's what I said! I am very Happy!

    My trade is giving Pacers 1st, but it should be at the bottom of the 1st and Raptors give the Pacers their 2nd, which would be at the top of the 2nd. So basically We would have allowed the Raptor to only move up the draft by maybe 10 spots. Pacers would have had 2 - 2nd round picks.

    Also, Pacers are giving Cash Considerations for Carter which will amount to the salary of AJ Price. So if you really think about it. The trades was quite similar.

    In Short:
    Larry's Trade: Pacers lost a pick, paid out several 100k and kept AJ.
    My Trade: Kept 2 picks, send out AJ and didn't send no cash.

    Also, When Foster plays, I'm sure AJ will be wearing a suit and tie to the games!
