Default i guess we did almost have a trade...

from indy star:

http://www.indystar.com/article/2010.../1088/SPORTS04


tj ford & brandon rush (didn't see rush leaving anytime soon) to CHA for dj augustin, nazr mohammed, and gerald henderson.

i think nazr is in a contract year so that would have been around a $6M dump or so and i would have definitely welcomed dj to our team, though not sure to the tune of rush leaving.

i wonder how these 2 players are going to play now for us. ford had to know there was a chance for him to get dealt but i'm positive this took rush by surprise. i just hope he plays even harder now to cement a spot on our roster.

Yeah, Rush was "shocked" by it. Mohammed's under contract next year (player option I think), but it would've resulted in a bit of savings, somewhere between $1-2mm.

Honestly, I wasn't that excited by the rumor. I'm pretty ambivalent about it either way. DJ Augustin's OK, but not like he's a future starter for a team worthy of 50 wins or anything, we've got a solid future backup riding the pine in AJ Price. I think Henderson is an all around downgrade from Rush, he's similar to Dahntay Jones to me. Nice perimeter defender with no offensive ability but a drive and dunk. I'd be calling for rolled heads if it were a straight up Henderson/Rush scenario. As much as Indiana hates him it seems like we've finally realized to let TJ do what he does best, score. The only positive out of it, in my opinion, is a younger roster that really has no better prospects than we already have. To hell with the money, it's not my cash. Like I said, I wouldn't have been terribly upset by it, but it isn't the type of move that'd get me all that excited.

Can't forget we got a year out of Jack in that trade to. He just performed over anyone's expectations and got a big offer. If we were able to keep him people'd be talking about how great a trade that was.

Just Rush vs. Bayless though, I don't know. I really haven't seen enough of Bayless to say either way. I still think once Rush is in a position with a coach that runs a traditional halfcourt set and has more scorers around him people'll see how valuable his skillset is. Larry Brown would've loved him.
