    I just don't see how we realistically get Deng. I'd love to have him. And if we were able yo trade Cope, I'd even give up our first round pick. But I just don't think Cleveland wants Granger/Cope/30th pick.

    Yeah....either they are really cheap or really inept. They have a million 1st round picks...something that every team is asking for....and they can't find some deal to get it done?

    Geez...I'd send their lowest 1st round pick to the Cavs for Deng at the very least as a rental for a deeper Playoff push. They can get virtually any Player on the block now with a 1st round pick and they do nothing?

    Why move him? We can let him go in the offseason for no cost
    To get something for him, to get something out of the two first rounders we traded.

    Yeah...I admit that Granger/Copeland/30th pick looks like a poo-poo platter now....but that poo-poo platter may look like filet mignon when it's 2:30pm EST and the best offer that they got is some 2nd round picks.

    I know....wishful thinking.

    Unless Bird had every intention of letting him go at the end of the season.....I don't see why Bird even consider moving him.

    I think he means credible rumors, i.e., those reported by people like Adrian Wojnarowski and Marc Stein, not acne-prone basement dwellers on Twitter.

    Having Deng aboard, acquainted with the team and the city, would be a good insurance move in case Lance bolts in the offseason. If Lance leaves, we simply try to re-sign Luol and maintain an elite talent level.
    Wouldn't that be nice.

    I've never understood why the trade deadline doesn't run to 5pm too. I mean 3pm EST is only noon on the west coast.

    Would Gilbert hate LeBron enough to send Deng to us for Granger straight up to improve Indy's chance of knocking off the King?

    I'm curious, if we let go of Scola after this season, how much money could we throw at Lance?

    Or it gives us a palatable option if we decide we don't want to pay Lance and his increasingly worrisome behavior between $9-12 million annually. This is going to be an extremely unpopular statement, but at this point I think I'd rather roll the dice on 4 years of Luol Deng signed to big money as opposed to Lance. I would strongly consider offering Cleveland a Granger/Orlando/protected future first rounder for Deng.

    Edit: And this is coming from someone who probably places more value on first round picks than the rest of us. I think with the way our FO has drafted and the very real constraints of the luxury tax, having young, possibly productive guys locked in for four years at a low salary is paramount for maintaining our status as contenders.

    Or just end the thing at midnight. I've never been clear on that either.

    Denver has traded Jordan Hamilton to Houston for Aaron Brooks, league sources tell Yahoo Sports.

    It's truly been a day of blockbusters. The shape of the NBA has been changed forever.

    LOL! I guess all that talk with the Knicks was just a smoke screen? Hoopshype says Wizards have discussed Ariza for Deng trade. I think Indy's package of Danny and maybe Scola and a pick is better. IF that's what Bird is offering.

    Letting Scola go would clear up roughly $4+ mil in Salary Cap space ( he's owed $900k guaranteed if he is let go ).....so we're looking at having roughly $10.5 mil in Capspace....but we'd still have to sign 3 Players ( 2 of which would be at the Veteran's minimum )...including Lance...so that would mean having about $9+ mil that can go to Lance?

    NOTE - I'm spitballing here...someone would have to run more accurate #s for me.

    The main thing to make out of this is that the Pacers would clear $4+ mil in Capspace...which IMHO makes a big difference.

    My guess and it is just a guess. The NBA doesn't want to be approving trades into the night. My understanding is all you have to do is get a trade into the league office by 3, but if the league office gets 10 trades all at 2:59 - they cannot possibly approve them within a couple of hours. So lets say it takes 3 hours to approve those 10 trades, that would be 6. Where as if the trade deadline went until 9 or mignight, then they are approving trades until midnight ot 3 AM.

    I have a vague memory of the trade deadline being at 6 a few years ago and before that at different times

    NBA trade deadline incentive.

    If you make a trade you get get half a million of extra on the Luxury Tax threshold, bottom salary cap, or salary cap.

    This would be the busiest trade deadline ever.

    Was there a rumor Indy was exploring trading Scola?
