TRADE!

5 Player, 4 team trade just came over the wire.

I???ll list this in order of impact for next season.

The Hornets gave up Darren Collison & James Posey and got Trevor Ariza

The Nets gave up Courtney Lee and got Troy Murphy

The Pacers gave up Troy Murphy and got Darren Collison and James Posey

The Rockets got the worst end with giving up Trevor Ariza and getting Courtney Lee.

Impact on . . . .

The Hornets:

James Posey was overpaid and expected to give some championship experience to the young Hornets, that didn???t happen and the Hornets don???t need a 5/4 swingman on the downside of his career. Darren Collison is the major giveup here, he had a MONSTER years as a rookie, and the Hornets are trading when the water is high on him. Ariza took advantage of his increased minutes and averaged 15 points and five and a half boards with almost 4 assists. Ariza is going to slide into the SF position next to David West and give the Hornets a really good defensive team. Marcus Thornton being the only guy who isn???t a defender to be reckoned with.
