Sixers-Wolves Trade

7 posts in this topic

All the sudden McHale is stockpiling 1st round picks instead of giving them away. He might have turned over a new leaf.

The Wolves traded away their trade exemption from an earlier Miami trade and a second round pick for Calvin Booth, Rodney Carney, and a 2009 1st round pick (And the Sixers could stink up the joint next year or be in the top 4 in the East, the East is that wide open beyond a couple teams). I really like it. The 'cash considerations' trade exception would have expired if we didn't use it and it's a win win for both teams. Carney is decent, we could trade him away or hold onto him. Booth is a stiff. Really tall with a nice wingspan and can block some shots but is really skinny and can't score. He's probably best remembered for signing a ridiculously huge contract with Seattle (him and Chris Wilcox were grossly overpaid by that organization). Booth is off the books after next year and Carney has a team option after next year, so the Wolves aren't stuck with any bad contracts and could be primed to land a big free agent in addition to all their draft picks.

I like the move.

the pick is from Utah given to philly so it is what Utah does.....I do like the trade cause the 1st round d.c. but these guys should be used in future trades.....

McHale probably figures if he has every first round pick in next year's draft, he can't screw it up!

This year the jerk has been giving me hope for the future I am just waiting for him to crush it and I don't even like the fixed NBA anymore.

I also believe the pick is highly protected, like top 15 for the next 5 years.

Yeah - extremely protected. like top 4 next year, top 6, top 8, top 12, top 16, and then i'm not sure.

The numbers aren't exact but seems real protected.

    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option

    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
