I know everyone is tired of hearing about trade rumors. I am tired and just want to see a good deal go down for our Pacers. But their are some rumbling that the pacers could be in play for Hinrich when his trade restriction ends and he can be trade with other players agian.
Pacers - Ellis, Hinrich, Wright, McGee
GoldenState - Arenas, Dunleavy, McRoberts, Indiana's 2011 and 2012 Second round Picks, Washingtons 2012 First round Pick.
Washington - Beidrins, Murphy, Jones
Golden State is looking to get rid of Ellis and Biedrins. They are looking for a good player some youth and a small forward to start for them this season. They get all three of their wants in this trade. They do have to take back Arenas but they get a first round pick and a couple second rounders. That will give them the tools to restock thier roster under new ownership.
Washington gets rid of Arenus. They replace what they lost at center with a starting caliber center and the get a starting power forward who opens up the lane for John Wall. They get a SG in Jones that will help lock down the two and three positions and be a good Sub or starter for a team looking to grow around Wall. O yeah! did i mention they got rid of Arenas.
Pacers are looking for a point guard and another star to play along Danny Granger. They are either going to have to bring in some stars or take him to some stars. He is ready to win now. Ellis will fit in well in indy if he matures. Hinrich can start at Point Guard for the next 3 to 5 years. That is plenty of time to develope one or find a replacement. We lose some depth at the PF spot but pick up some help at Center and PF. These Additions to go along with Rolle with help get the pacers to the Playoffs. Does this bring a championship not yet. But it is closer.
By the way we will still have Ford and Foster's expiring contracts next season.
PG - Hinrich/ Ford/ Price
SG - Ellis/ Rush/ Stephanson
SF - Granger/ George
PF - Hansborough/ Wright/ Rolle/ Jones
C - HIbbert/ McGee/ Foster
