I hear reports from the chicago tribune that Isiah is desperately trying to trade H20 straight up for Webber. They both have identical salaries except Webber has one more year on H20's.
The kings want to move webber while he is still moving, but they now realize no other team is willing to take that risk unless of course if a team is in a similar problem with their hurt $20mil star player and of all the 30 teams there is only one other team like that - the knicks.
Hence advantage to the kings - they have two years of waiting for h20's contract to expire instead of 3 for webber's - hence a $20mil savings. The Kings know that the only other time they will get a good trade for webber is in the final year of his contract which is 2 years away - if they pick up H20 - they will only have to wait one more year!
Advantage to NY - webber has put up solid numbers: 21pts, 10rebs and 6asts this season - but every morning Isiah must pray that nothing happens to webber's knee, or else he's going to be stuck with the same H20 situation for 3 years now instead of only 2 previously.
What do you guys think?
If this rumor is true - should Isiah pull the trigger?
