Three way trade in the works?

Three way trade in the works?

Real GM wiretap reported:
Toronto Star: As rumours swirl and speculation mounts concerning Antonio Davis's future with the Toronto Raptors, the veteran power forward is expected to be around when training camp begins in less than a month.

Or maybe not.

"He will, in all likelihood, be with our team," general manager Glen Grunwald said yesterday of Davis, the soon-to-be-36-year-old who is the team's highest-paid player.

But that less-than-ringing endorsement of Davis' security with the team has to lend some credence to suggestions a deal is in the works. And sources around the league say Grunwald may not be actively shopping the 6-foot-10, 230-pounder but he sure isn't telling would-be suitors that Davis is not available.

The general manager offered his standard, "I don't discuss trade rumours" yesterday when the subject of a three-team deal involving Davis, the Portland Trail Blazers and the New Jersey Nets was broached but he also trotted out another of his favourite lines concerning roster moves:

"We're always looking at ways to improve our team."

However, that won't be the three-team deal that would have sent Davis and Kenyon Martin to Portland with Rasheed Wallace ending up in New Jersey and Dikembe Mutombo winding up in Toronto, along with other salary-cap ballast moving between the teams.

While it was discussed seriously at the highest levels, according to team and league sources, it hasn't been alive for about a week, NBA sources say, because the suddenly cost-conscious Blazers balked at assuming two large salaries. The previously free-spending owner Paul Allen has set strict new spending guidelines in Portland and the team laid off more than two dozen front office employees this summer.

But whether Toronto renews its interest in Mutombo, or Wallace, for that matter, fans can be assured that Davis' name will continue to pop up in trade rumours


Toronto trades...

New Jersey trades...

that would be a great trade

i head dale davis might be involved in tha trade too?

If i were new jersey i'd like to see how Mutumbo and Mourning work together back when they were georgetown teammates...

i mean IMAGINE the HUGE lineup of Mutumbo(7-2), Mourning(6-10), Martin(6-9), Jefferson(6-7), and Kidd(6-4)...

Mutumbo and Mourning vs Shaq and Malone...i like it already! Definetly with thsoe 2 as the front court of New Jersey helps their chances to return to the NBA finals for a 3rd straight year...i look for New Jersey to be #1 in the east this year, hell they might even hit 60 this year!

Dont trade Mutumbo, atleast give it a chance...i mean he WAS injured last year, and i hear he is healthy and ready to go this year, i mean u got 2 big guys that have been Defensive Players of the Year more than once, and have loads of playoff experience, and they can guard the basket and swat lots of shots much like what Robinson and Duncan did...
