So the team would trade away a lotto player, for Ben Gordon and a mid level player (probably a role player) to get a player who is going to give you 20 pts a game, no defense and no leadership...not going to happen. Trading him for more of a vet big man isn't out of the question, I am sure the Pacers would be more than willing to work with a deal around Ben Gordon.

Ring#7, the reason I want Tyrus gone is because he is bascially already a bust. Sure he has shown some improvements but IMO that was a huge mistake by Paxson, he had LA who was better than Tyrus is now when he came into the league and has only gotten better. And when you can work a trade out to get rid of him for something other than a pick lets see it. The guy makes around 3 million I believe and getting any first round pick for him would be solid. The funny thing is Joey Dorsey is going to be better than Tyrus, and he is a projected 2nd round pick.

And saying Tyrus could be better than Beasley is like saying Ben Gordon is the second comming of MJ.

In the famous words of flava flave; Wooow, Some of you guys got beasley way over rated. Dont get me wrong, he's good, and I happen to like his game. But to say compare Tyrus to Beasley like gordon to Mj? I hope your just playing around. Tyrus aint that far from Beasley, he just has a different style and paxson knew he was raw before he drafted him. And how can you say he's already a bust when he averages the same as Aldridge whenever he gets a chance to play. It aint his fault Skiles was playing Joe smith and Wallace because of there contracts. He just got the $hit end of the stick. and besides Rose and beasley there aint a player in the draft with more potential than Thomas. And heres an ambitious trade. Hinrich, noah and simmons for Aldridge, Pryzbilla, and jaret jack. It works out for both teams.
