It's about halfway down but the gist of it is us doing this: http://games.espn.go.com/nba/tradeMachine?tradeId=2dcg6na
Don't freak out about Yao being included in the trade, he states in the article that it would only work for us under the assumption that NO buys Yao out and he re-signs with us a la Ilgauskus and the Wizards.
We'd still be giving up what most of us thought we would in Brooks, Battier, and Hill as the major pieces. What does everyone think about this scenario? Would you pull the trigger?
