Well it would help us out a lot if we got some expiring contracts for him then we can really pick up some players next offseason. VC is a free agent next year hahaha
Anyone trading for Webber is going to want one of our younger players also, like Iggy or Korver. If they want Dalembert...which would probably be impossible to batch them two up since they both have huge contracts, then I'd jump on that in a heartbeat. Anyway, no one is going to take just him as he's getting older and has a huge contract.

I don't see him getting traded because it would be too hard to balance salary and whatnot.

Yeah, his salary poses a pretty big roadblock.  But the Knicks have some players that have big contracts and have not lived up to them (i.e. Malik Rose, Jerome James).  Jerome James can only block shots and doesn't need that big money, and Malik Rose is an average power forward that would be returning to his hometown.

Billy King did one thing right-going to Thomas, the guy who is attracted by big contracts.

Okay, We'll give you Jamal Tinsley, Stephen Jackson, and a 7.5 Million trade exception for C-Webb.

$7.5million trade exception can help buy a pretty good chance at a Kenyon Martin, or Al Harrington.  Still some players out there like Melvin Ely, Jumaine Jones that are great pickups for small bucks.

Would it help if we had a sign and trade Scott Pollard to add a "big" for the Sixers???

Yeah, I like that idea.  Pollard is the role player type of guy that is able to be a secondary player under a star player.  

It would be cool to get Kenyon Martin, but I would be afraid he would be another Chris Webber with the bad knees and stuff.  

***No offense to CWebb, but his knees have crippled his game.

That rumour is true.  The rumour about anyone wanting him is false.

C-Webb's salary, while hefty, is not untradeable - the rumored deal with the Knicks had Q-Rich, Malik Rose, and Mo Taylor (2 of the 3, plus a draft pick) involved, and eventually both teams shot down the others' offers. The Sixers reportedly wanted Malik Rose and Mo Taylor plus the pick, while the Knicks wanted to get C-Webb with Q-Rich and Taylor.

I think the whole Webber issue will be revisited at the deadline or next offseason, because at the last year of his deal C-Webb could be valuable to a team looking to create cap space.

I'd say no way to Kenyon Martin, even if he was healthy because of the length of his deal. C-Webb, despite his large contract, is only owed money for the next couple of years.

OK, Tinsley, Jackson, Foster and a $2.3 Million trade exception.

Would that work???

Indiana isn't that stupid. They actually play defense. C-Webb doesn't -- in his own words "sometimes the best defense is a good offense"

Webber is probably second to Darius Miles in the list of most difficult players to trade.
