Greetings to everybody here. Right now we're having a contest over at Bullets Forever called "You Be the GM". I'm sure you can figure out what that entails (or you can click the link and read about it). Anyway, the reason I'm posting here is to see if there would be any interest/support in the Pacers community of a trade involving our two teams. Particularly, I was thinking something along the lines of a sign-and-trade of Gilbert Arenas packaged with some other player(s) and draft picks to acquire Jermaine O'Neal.
If I were the GM of the Wizards, I would be basing this trade scenario on the assumption that I'd resign Antawn Jamison to complement Caron Butler, so obviously those two would be off-limits in the trade discussion. I'd listen to offers for all other Wizards players. Also, our team is kind of light on guards, so giving up Arenas would mean that I'd have to replace him with another serviceable guard, preferably a point guard. I could address that need with the 18th pick in the draft, but if you're interested in that pick I would probably need one of the Pacers guards to be included in the trade. What are your thoughts? Any interest here for the services of Gilbert Arenas? If this were to go down, Gilbert would be arriving here with a 5-6 year salary starting at around $16.4 million. Let me know what you guys think.
