Larry Bird said he hopes to trade for or sign a power forward and is confident he can trade point guard Jamaal Tinsley. The Pacers tried to solve both issues in one deal by offering Tinsley to Miami for power forward Udonis Haslem, but the Heat are reluctant to give up Haslem. Pacers officials said they expect to be able to trade Tinsley because 10 or 12 teams need a point guard."

i don't think that is a bad trade.
should be able to help both teams if it is done.

I don't think the Heat need a PG b/c IMO D-Wade will be their primary ballhandler because of his style.

07-16-2008, 11:43 PM
No we won't trade our co-captain for an injury-prone guy.

Heat need a good point guard and if Tinsley can stay out of trouble and stay healthy he would be a great fit. Pacers need a starting PF and I think Haslem is a very legit starting PF in the NBA. Would be a good trade.

ya haslem is worth more than that, what an insult

i hope what i just said was right cause im a laker fan and i only watch the heat play when its against them so im not sure about ur players but arent i right?

Maybe Tinsley and Roy Hibbert for Haslem and Blount...

Maybe Tinsley and Roy Hibbert for Haslem and Blount...

yeah i would do that trade.

I would feel so sorry for Miami if they got Tinsley.

Nice trade. Miami gets the assets they need and lose Blount.

Maybe Tinsley and Roy Hibbert for Haslem and Blount...

the question is will the pacets to do that? why would they trade hibbert for a overpaid C..

average starting PG for an average starting PF is equal

07-17-2008, 10:03 AM
Haslem > Tinsley, maybe Tinsley and a prospect like Hibbert but then it makes is one sided again. SO....Haslem and 2nd round for Tinsley and Hibbert.

07-17-2008, 10:06 AM
Yeah, this trade makes no sense.

07-17-2008, 02:18 PM
Haslem has way more value on the market than Tinsley. He's a more important player than Tinsley. He stays healthier than Tinsley. He's more respected than Tinsley. I don't need to go on. Haslem > Tinsley. And Pat would never make that deal.

07-17-2008, 02:19 PM
I always thought Wade was there PG ... why won't you guys just make him your starting PG

07-17-2008, 02:22 PM
Because he can't be effective as a point guard. He's a scoring guard who happens to rack up assists. How many point guards lead their teams in scoring? Maybe 2?

The Haslem trade for Tinsley makes so much sense for both teams. This trade should be completed already.

07-17-2008, 02:33 PM
I think they need depth at the guard position because they are trying to lower Dwayns ball handeling and play making have him just being a finisher and this would make him more effective in the 4th, i think Miami would benefit from a veg guard like jamaal who isnt sad coming off the bench, however Haslem is a big asset other teams would probably give a little more for, aswell if they are still rebuilding a draft pick would be nice but i agree haslem needs to go matrix is a better versian and a more versitle player, i think haslem can go to rockets who could use a pf for mike james or rafer alston

07-17-2008, 05:32 PM
mike james isnt with the rockets..

07-17-2008, 05:37 PM
haslem has more value good contract goodhard worker good guy, I dont like this idea

07-17-2008, 05:39 PM
bad trade for heat if went through haslem is solid

07-17-2008, 05:42 PM
Haslem will take Jermaine Oneals spot at power forward for the pacers. I dont see where exactly Tinsley will fit on the Miami roster with Jason Williams at point.

07-17-2008, 06:16 PM
I would do it. Also Tinsley is better than Jason Williams when he is healthy.

Yankeefan28 is the worst Mod ever!!!

u and ur boy should stay out of the dodger forum lol

07-17-2008, 07:26 PM
Its a terrible deal. Haslem is the captain of our team, our best rebounder and the heart and soul of our team. So we trade him for a guy who can't stay on the court and is an idiot off it? Makes zero sense whatsoever.

07-17-2008, 07:35 PM
Bird spoke, Riley laughed

not only is his contact horrible on face value, it also runs a year too long AND he's injury prone

07-17-2008, 07:51 PM
I always thought Wade was there PG ... why won't you guys just make him your starting PG

He already said he doesn't want 2 be the pg plus he turns the ball over way 2 much
