Grizzlies deal Tsakalidis to Rockets for Padgett
Associated Press

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- The Memphis Grizzlies traded center Jake Tsakalidis to the Houston Rockets on Tuesday in exchange for forward Scott Padgett.

The 7-foot-2 Tsakalidis had been averaging 2.3 points in 11.2 minutes with the Grizzlies this season. He will give the Rockets a big man to help out with Yao Ming still out after breaking his right leg on Dec. 23.

"This is a good opportunity for Jake to have more playing time," said Jerry West, the Grizzlies' president of basketball operations. "He is a great person and a true professional, and we wish him well in the future."

Tsakalidis averaged 5.0 points and 4.2 rebounds in 51 games in 2005-06 with the Grizzlies. They traded for him on Sept. 30, 2003, from Phoenix and re-signed him in September 2004 after matching an offer sheet with Cleveland.

The 6-9 Padgett averaged 1.8 points and 8.3 minutes in 24 games with Houston this season, and he averaged 3.4 points and 2.7 rebounds in 62 games with the New Jersey Nets last season.

Tsakalidis... isn't that Greek for "first round exit"
Usage... "How did the Rockets do this year?"
"They total Tsakalidis"

You could have left off the 3rd stringers. DJ's done for the year and Jake may as well be. He's terrible.

No secret that Yao and Deke are better than are centers but it doesn't really matter. As T-Mac will tell you, it takes five and your five probably isn't good enough.

Seriously, thanks for talking with me without using the word troll. Thats cool. Well, they seemed to be clicking in the first game against the mavs. DJ (d.george?)is out the whole season including playoffs.:confused:

Jake has some minor post-up skills, is good for some rebounds, a few blocks and to pick-up fouls and we did not lose anything to get him....Scott Padget.

Its good to have 3 7 footers.
