Default Hornets/Rockets/Pacers/Nets Trade w/Murphy, Ariza, Lee, Others...

TWITTER

So says Mark Stein.

It sounds like it. I fail to see what the Nets are doing. Murphy for Lee? When they already have bigs who need to play?

Troy's Morristown's finest? I don't know. I just think they find Favors not ready for a starting role at the moment and we do need a rebounder. I'm not a big fan of this, but I'm also not a big fan of Courtney Lee. It seems as if Avery wants Terrence at the 2 position anyway.

EDIT: Troy's an expiring contract. Maybe they're clearing cap again?

The Nets don't have a seasoned vet among their bigs though, and I think asking Favors to play more than about 25-30 mins a night is too much for him right off the bat. Bringing Murph in there helps ensure that he's not thrown out to the wolves too soon. I really like this deal for the Nets.

Yep thats also an important thing to remember. As things stand the Nets should be able to add a max guy next season, and now they have a line-up that should be competitive and could win 25-30 wins under Coach Avery Johnson.

That's funny if the Rockets get rid of Ariza so fast after signing him, seeing as they thought they were robbing the Lakers at the time.

This trade is good for everyone but Houston. Why give up Ariza for Lee?

They must be getting a pick/cash/salary relief over the long term or it's not worth it.

This is pretty much what I thought. I like it a lot for Indy though. I have wished for them to pursuit Darren Collison for some time now.

Al though I believe it when it happens. Collison would be great for the Pacers.
