A four team trade that went down today between Houston, New Jersey, New Orleans and Indiana. I figured that would make today a good day to start a general NBA fanpost for Bucks fans to discuss news and stories outside of Milwaukee. Trade details on the other side of the jump.
The impedous for this trade seems to be Indiana's quest for a point guard, Houston's quest to dump some salary after a big spending summer, Jersey looking for a vet to take pressure off Favors at power forward, and New Orleans desparately trying to please CP3s demands for a talent infusion.
Indiana acquired Darren Collison and James Posey's bloated contract, which they can afford. Houston picks up a talented and cheap swingman in Courtney Lee. New Jersey picks up a stretch four in Troy Murphy because they apparently miss Yi so much already. New Orleans picks up swingman Trevor Ariza as a wingman for CP3 on the break.
Any reaction to this trade or any other goings on during these dog days of the NBA? Here is your place to react.
