Just trade Magliore already

The whole Magliore "Let's Make a Deal" traveling summer carnival is starting to annoy me. Principally because it looks more and more like it will end up being nothing more than a "Garbage Out; Garbage In" trade. Names have been floating and sinking for the past three weeks. Most of them are less than inspiring. Let's quickly review.

1. The Harrington sign-and-trade that I jumped on and got you all pumped up about looks about as dead as disco. That's not going to happen. Sorry.

2. Haven't heard much more of the San Antonio Magliore-for-Berry talk either. That's probably just as well.

3. The most likely scenario emerging, though the Washington Post is refuting it, is a two or three-for-one deal with the Washington Bullets, involving either Jerrod Jeffries or Antonio Daniels or both, plus, most likely, Etan Thomas. If this happens I think the reaction in Bucks Nation will be the same as the reaction to the stink bomb I dropped in seventh grade Art class: bewilderment followed quickly by utter revulsion. Etan Thomas is essentially a carbon copy of Jamaal Magliore (without the superior rebounding-- ouch) and both Jeffries and Daniels are career underperformers (otherwise known as 'Coach and GM Killers'). There are some good qualities to all three but I won't get into those qualities unless and until this thing is finalized.

4. The only possible trade being mentioned that I actually like would be a trade with the Pacers that would bring Danny Granger and a throw in stiff like Stephen Jackson or Jamaal Tinsley to the Bucks. Granger would be a great back-up 3 for the Bucks because he appears to be a very tough defender, an outstanding rebounder for his position, and a good inside scorer. His acquistion would constitute a roster upgrade.

Danny Granger is as likely to be traded by the Pacers as Bogut by the Bucks.

Also, Tinsley and Jackson are not exactly throw-ins.

Jackson alone would be good value for Magloire. He scored 16 and 18 a game the last two years and plays defense.

Stephen Jackson is garbage dont come to us with that crap!

You not getting a starter from us without giving up something!

Are you crazy! Bird wants to unload Jackson and if we take him you give up Granger as well or forget it!

What do you think this is?

Danny Granger is going nowhere. That's just not going to happen.

Jackson is beying shopped, but he's not a "throw-in". IF you know anything about the Pacers management then it should be that they are usually very patient and waite for a good offer. Just like Artest didn't get traded for crap like Devean George, a second rounder and Slava Medvedenko. Sure, Peja left, but only a crazy team would pay him with what he got from New Orleans?Oklahoma City.

Jackson btw has been a starter the last two years. SF last year and SG this year. Hey, I wasn't too happy about that either, but don't say he isn't a starter.

Yeah, the Pacers will trade Granger. I also heard that they want to throw in Jermaine O'Neal + Conseco Fieldhouse to make the deal fair.
