Recently the Grizzlies were supposed to trade SG-OJ Mayo and cash to the Pacers for PF-Josh McRoberts and a first round pick. However that trade was not done in time for the trade deadline and did not go through. I still would not rule out the Pacers trading for OJ Mayo, it is possible for the Pacers to trade SG's Dahntay Jones and Brandon Rush for OJ Mayo and end up on the lower end of the salaries between the 2 teams in the trade. I know on paper it kind of seems like the Pacers are getting the better end of the trade, but technically no ones really getting screwed over that much with this trade. When I tried this move on the trade machine the Pacers ended up not getting any more wins for the season and the Grizzlies only having one less win for the season. Plus their isn't much difference between Mayo and Rush's stats Mayo averages roughly 11 PPG and 2 RPG while Rush averages nearly 10 PPG and 3 RPG. The trade is basically on paper someone's trash for someone else's trash just like when the Pacers traded Stephen "Just Shoot Me" Jackson to the Golden State Warriors. Plus this trade like the Stephen "Just Shoot Me" Jackson trade, is more about who the Pacers get rid of rather then who they receive. If the trade goes through the Pacers will get rid of the one man Bird hates more then anyone on the Pacers in Brandon Rush and all their assholes from Duke the Poop That Makes you wanna Puke aside from Josh McRoberts who doesn't count as an asshole from Duke because he is a Carmel Indiana native and didn't win a national championship with Duke or stay there longer then 2 years if Mike Dunleavy Jr. is not re-signed next season which is GOING TO HAPPEN as soon as he either has anything that could resemble a season ending injury or as soon as the final buzzer sounds for the Pacers final game of the season. Plus even though the Pacers technically get the better end of this trade, the Grizzlies may actually be stupid enough to make it considering the fact that they were dumb enough to take the Lakers stupid offer for Pau Gasol and man does that trade ever make this one look like a melting pot.
So again here's the trade
Pacers give up SG-Dahntay Jones & G/F-Brandon Rush to the Grizzlies
