Hornets, Rockets, Nets, and Pacers complete a 4 team, 5 player trade
A 4 team, 5 player trade has added a shake up to an already free agent madness.
Hornets Trade: G Darren Collison, and F James Posey
Hornets Acquire: G/F Trevor Ariza
Pacers Trade: F/C Troy Murphy
Pacers Acquire: G Darren Collison, and F James Posey
Nets Trade: G Courtney Lee
Nets Acquire: F/C Troy Murphy
Rockets Trade: G/F Trevor Ariza
Rockets Acquire: G Courtney Lee
My Opinion: I thought the player with the most upside and talent is Darren Collison. So I liked who the Pacers acquired although having to take Posey’s contract he still can play a role with the team. I thought the Hornets made out well in acquiring Ariza. Ariza is a athletic player who plays both offense and defense. He also is a decent three pointer shooter which adds to his skills. The Rockets I though traded a better player in a Ariza now to acquire a young developing player in Courtney Lee. I think Lee can be really good with time as long as he turns himself into a better 3 point shooter. He already has the speed and quickness to find lanes to the hoop. Adding a more accurate 3 pointer will make him even more deadly. The Nets who already added G Anthony Morrow who I think was one of the better free agents available I guess though it was time to trade Courtney Lee. They added Troy Murphy who is a solid rebounder and can hit the 3’s for a big man. He is a good addition to the Nets who have a rookie starting at power forward. It is hard to let go of a promising Courtney Lee but at least they got back a position that needed more depth. A nice trade all around.
