I don't like this trade. Anyone who pulls for it is only thinking about next season. Summer 2010 is the goal and we should absolutely stay away from deals that hit our cap beyond that.

I'd rather wait for D'Antoni to craft offensive sets that take advantage of the many talented offensive players we have. If he can make Z-Bo and Curry better players, their trade value would be much better later and place us in a better position.

Right now, Z-Bo for Darko and Jaric is a nice trade but not good enough. We can do better than that if we are patient and use 2009 to develop our base.
