    Broussard, furthermore, tweeted early Tuesday that the Washington Wizards have made anyone on the roster available for Smith, apart from John Wall, Bradley Beal and Nene.
    That was good for a laugh.

    I always love those sort of notes.

    "We want your guy. We'll give you anyone on our roster for him except our good players."

    I really wish some big rumors would start up, or any rumor with the Pacers involved. I need a little excitement in my life.

    If there are Pacers rumors, that will be a sure sign that nothing will happen.

    Here are seven trades that "Should Happen" according to Tom Haberstroh

    http://insider.espn.go.com/nba/story...-trades-happen

    Including this doozy for the P's

    4. Steve Nash to the Indiana Pacers

    Indiana Pacers receive: Steve Nash, Metta World Peace, Jordan Hill andSteve Blake.
    Los Angeles Lakers receive: Danny Granger, George Hill,Lance Stephenson and Ben Hansbrough. The deal in Trade Machine.


    It's just too painful to watch Nash's talents go to waste inside the ongoing circus in Laker Land. Dwight Howard appears to be allergic to running the pick-and-roll with Nash, which is a basketball crime of the highest degree. Not to mention, Kobe Bryant is now splitting ballhandling duty, which strips Nash of his wizard-like talents with the rock.

    Indiana would be a brilliant landing spot for the two-time MVP, even aside from the obvious fact that Nash looks like he could step in right away for a "Hoosiers" remake. The Pacers rank 24th on offense and sorely need an injection of offensive creativity. Nash hasn't penetrated the paint as he has in the past, but he may just need a change in scenery. And Granger becomes a bit superfluous with Paul George's ascension. Metta World Peace's return to Indiana is a whole separate matter.
    As with the Boston scenario above, the Lakers would have be on board with the idea that building for the future is more valuable than a slight chance at a first-round exit this season. In the short term, Hill would give the Lakers a much stronger defensive presence on the ball, and Granger (if and when he's healthy) could help buoy the offense without Nash. A 2013 playoff push wouldn't be ruled out, and Granger becomes a free agent just in time for the 2014 free-agent sweepstakes. This a deal that probably won't happen, but Nash's leading the Pacers against the Heat would be fantastic postseason theater.

    Don't get your hopes up. Maybe we'll trade for a new backup point somehow, Eric Maynor maybe. Anything more would surprise me.

    Anyway, when you guys are surfing twitter and see "Player X has been traded for Player Y" make sure to check where it's from. Don't get duped by one of those fake accounts.

    And Tom Haberstroh's a flat out idiot.

    That trade idea reads like it was written by a Miami Heat writer...

    Here take 3 starting quality players for a 37 year old PG with a bad back, an injury prone big man, and the guy who crippled our franchise for 5 years. Oh yeah, we want Steve Blake too.

    On ESPN they were speculating about Danny Granger being traded. They said we won't be trading him and then proceeded to throw out random scenarios anyway. They came up with Danny and a 1st for Hayward and Millsap which I would jump all over that deal.

    I expect an extremely quiet trade deadline period. Not much will happen at all.

    So we basically trade away Danny, George Hill, and Lance (three starters) for nothing. Would any of those players we acquire be on our roster two years from right now?

    I guess we should probably ditch David West's expiring contract too. Who needs that? We'll probably need to send them some draft picks though.

    Yeah any trade that would bring Artest to Indiana is dead before it starts. Doesn't matter who else is involved.
