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.
