Thread: Rumored deal.....

  1. #1

    Question Rumored deal.....

    Portland sends La Marcus Aldridge to Indiana. Josh Smith is signed and traded to Portland. Granger and Hill, plus Portland's 2013 1st and Indiana's 2013 1st go to Atlanta. This deal is rumored so take with a grain of salt. Saw it breeze by on Twitter. Said Smith would have to agree to going to Portland for deal to happen.

    This gives Atlanta 4 first round picks this June! #10, #17, #18, and #23....WTF???

    That's the thing. It was a random twitter user. They didn't have any NBA people following them but they were following a few. I am just posting this as something to banter about because it reeks of that last Summer thing where random twitter users were posting stupid rumors. But either way, it's an intriguing deal IF even an ounce real.

    I'm on my phone posting this so I haven't figured out how to do the link thing yet on my phone versus my desktop computer. I am 10 mins from my house now so I'll try when I get there. Raining cats and dogs here in NY, currently in a cab.

    This deal would make no sense....
    Who would we get to replace Hill?

    Did we really need to make a thread because some random twitter guy put out some random deal?

    I have no idea of his drug abuse habits or lack thereof lol. But it makes sense only because stockpiling picks is what Atlanta would need to do to have a chance at getting CP3 or D12. Remember the teams interested in D12 last season were stockpiling picks.

    Whooppee for them. Now why in the world would the other two teams do this? Someone is living in fantasy land.

    Makes zero sense for Indiana unless Aldridge is flipped for a starting PG or one is signed as a FA.

    Just someone stirring the pot

    Teams wouldn't even be able to seriously discuss that deal until July because Josh Smith is a free agent. By that time those picks will be players. So, Portland and Indiana will pick players in this draft for Atlanta in hopes that Josh Smith decides to go to Portland? Pure fantasy.
