    Default Goodbye Collison - 4-Team Trade In The Works

    Four NBA teams are on the verge of a five-player trade that will send Trevor Ariza to the New Orleans Hornets and Darren Collison to the Indiana Pacers, two league sources said.

    In the proposed deal, the Houston Rockets will send Ariza to the Hornets, who in turn will send Collison and James Posey to the Pacers.

    The Pacers will send Troy Murphy to the New Jersey Nets. And the Nets will send Courtney Lee to the Rockets.

    Details available show the following:

    Indiana Pacers receiving their franchise PG in Darren Collison, and James Posey as a throw-in. They'd have to be thrilled about this deal.

    New Jersey Nets receiving Troy Murphy's skill at PF to help Favours, and his big $12M ending contract.

    Houston Rockets getting yet another shooting guard in Courtney Lee.

    And Trevor Ariza heading to the Hornets to run the wing with CP3. Would a move like this be enough to keep Paul happy? Maybe not, but it's a step in the right direction!

    Guess we can cross Indy off the list of people who may want Jose.

    LOL

    Great deal for N.J. Favors will be under less pressure and Murphy is better than Lee.

    Default 4 team deal seriously affects the Raptors rumours with Indy

    According to...http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=5455472
    this is whats going down today:

    So all those Indiana-Raptors rumours concerning Calderon being dealt is pretty much proved dead now with Indy's acquisition of Collison.

    Nick Collison is C/F and plays for the Thunder

    You meant Darren Collison, at least I hope that is who you meant.

    There were no Raptors rumors with Indy.

    This was a fantasy trade thought up by Calderon bashers.

    This, in theory, seriously impacts Tor's options in dealing Jose. Indy long thought to be hottest pursuer.

    Thats why I assumed there was a rumour lol but you could be right too Buddah it may have been just the bashers

    seriously, you want to keep calderon.

    i said this would happen, bc was holding out for the right deal instead of just getting what he could.
