TRADE ACCEPTED


Tinsley, as well as Pollard, is supposed to be disfavored in Indiana. Swapping him for Best might help both teams, because of the different styles they play. Indiana has a whole bunch of guys like Croshere (who's not as disfavored under Carlisle as he was before). The trade still works (with some tweaking), and I'd still do it, if you substitute Harrington or Bender (even Foster with more tweaking--like taking Delk out). Eddie is a big-time tradeable commodity. Indiana could flip him to Houston or San Antonio or Chicago or one of the L.A. teams for a gain in talent because of his appeal to the Hispanic market. Fortson, at least, isn't another tall thin guy.

Dallas gets a more legitimate center, a point who'd fit better here, and another forward who they don't really need, but is as useful as Eddie or Fortson.

Sorry for th typo in the title. If some kind moderate feels like fixing it, I would be appreciative.

Sure. Delk and Best are almost worthless to us right now. This would be a fantastic trade if we could get Indy to do it.

Scott Pollard? Hmmm, doesn't sound bad, but this guy hasn't proven a damn thing in the league yet. I see it as sort of a gamble.

Not much of a gamble. We're giving up precious little.

You're right. But the thing is... we'd be giving up scrubs who know the system for scrubs who have yet to learn it i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif Actually, not even this can make my point valid, we are giving up best and delk..... you're right, it isn't much of a gamble, in fact, by giving up best we instantly become a better team.

All you have to do to fix it is to edit the first message. The topic can be edited as well as the message.

Not sure why Indiana would do this. I think "falling out of favor" isn't a strong enough reason to get rid of players. Maybe they might want Best back. I would do it to get Pollard who will be great against the Kings.
