If anything, I would like a Jermaine O'Neal trade for Kenyon Martin, Deke and Rodney Rogers. That would be worth it, presumably, but I don't see anything good for Indiana there. Even Jermaine for Chris sounds better there, to tell ya the truth...
but here's a trade (won't happen) that I thinks benefits all teams:
Three way trade in which:
Jason Terry (sign and trade)
Indiana trades Ron Artest and Fred Jones to the Blazers and Al Harrington to the Hawks, and Indiana gets in return Rasheed Wallace and Chris Crawford.
Portland trades Damon Stoudamire to the Hawks and Rasheed Wallace to the Pacers, and in return gets Ron Artest and Fred Jones from the Blazers, and Jason Terry from the Hawks.
Atlanta trades Chris Crawford to the Pacers and Jason Terry to the Blazers, and Atlanta gets in return Al Harrington from the Pacers and Damon Stoudamire from the Blazers.
well i dunno how tha salaries work...does it work by how much u make at the end of ur contract or the salary u will earn next year? Cuz Jermaine is gonna earn 13 mil this season...and end at about 20+ mil...and Deke and Martin combined are about 22+mil, so i thot that we would hafta add in a couple of players to make the salaries work
i think that trade would benefit Indiana big time, i mean imagine the lineup of:
thats definetly a bad boy lineup, and they can all play defense the way carlisle would like them to with shot blockers (martin and mutumbo) to guard to basket!! And the nets would get a go to guy that kidd can go to when his shot is not goin, and they would work well together since they played in Team USA together, and it would jus boost the Nets chances at the championship, with Mourning and O'neal playin alongside eachother, and Kidd throwin allley oops to Jefferson and Kittles!
I just see this a more realistic scenario for BOTH teams, since Martin was prolly not happy with his contract extension issue, and the Nets have been lookin unload Mutumbo's contract, and what better way to do it then to get a GREAT player in return who is on tha rise and about ready to hit his prime? To get great players, u hafta give too, even if they only get O'neal for 2 or 3 players i think it is definetly worth it, since they already have 3 centers(Mourning, Williams, Collins), and they already had a great bench and starting lineup...
I think Jermaine would be happy to leave Indiana and come to a BETTER situation in New Jersey where they are competing for a championship! Then maybe Isiah Thomas can come to the New Jersey coaching staff since Eddie Jordan left! or was eddie jordan's spot already taken after he left?
I dont if the Chris Webber trade would be bettter, i mean if ur pacers, ur gettin a rising star in Kenyon Martin who WAS the #1 pick overall a couple years back, and he had his best season yet last year, and he would fit in to the pacers style of play! aggressive, dirty, and all out! Imagine Artest and Martin on the same team! Why would u want an injury prone Webber who cant deliver in the clutch? Go for K-Mart and then u can get salary cap relief in 2 years after Mutumbo's contract is up! Or if Mutumbo actually does good this year, maybe u can think about re-signing for a LITTLE less than what hes earning now! Who knows what can happen? I mean if Malone and Payton can come to LA, anythin can happen in the NBA!
