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.

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.

    • Shame on you for questioning  these great and wonderful plans.  Have you no faith?  Besides it's pure nonsense.  She made a lot of claims that her plans would not add anything to the deficit or debt   But we have heard those same claims many times over.  It's a mystery why people still believe that everything is going to be funded through just simply raising taxes on people making over $250,000 a year just because "their " candidate said so When a candidate comes up with more spending ideas and tells you that the "rich" are going to be the ones that are going to fund them ,what they really mean is they're  going to fund them through printing and borrowing. They just use accounting tricks and schemes to hide the cost but I prefer math   Personally, I prefer any candidate I were to support tell us how they're going to get us out of this fiscal mess we're in    
    • I agree he should not have been playing in the world cup.
    • Im going to run my Elite 5 on the dash also, soley as my gps. So that will free up space on the Garmin for the side imaging...Now I cant wait for spring to try out all the new toys haha....I've always heard Garmin were really nice I just never saw any of their units that had the features I wanted and were in my $$ range.. I think I'll be really happy with it...Im curious how the preloaded maps are that come with it (lakevu??) I think its called. It would be sweet if it would take my Garmin upper midwest fishing guide chip, but I doubt it does.
    • I don't think it will adhere to the surface very well under 50 degrees.  Especially on the bottom, it could create some real problems if it doesn't stick very well!
    • Sure wakes ya up when nodding off and that reel goes ZINGGGG!!
    • lol sugar coat it all you want Nick the Gophers are a 7th best team in the Big 10 period. They don't have a meaningful win this entire season and they didn't beat any other team in the big 10 with a winning record except for Northwestern who are 5-4 in conference play but 6-6 overall. That isnt trolling at all, its facts.   I hope they can recruit by selling a trip to the Holiday Bowl this year. Big things happening for the Gophers!
    • that sounds great!!!  they were good pictures too!
    • I use the same set up and I think it's the only way to go.
