In the last 2 days, John Paxson has traded away an undersized, underperforming sf/pf with a big contract, a locker room cancer and certified ballhog with an even bigger contract, a no-defense, no inside game pf/c and a disappointing defense specialist with no offensive skills and got back a former All Star center with good passing skills on the downslope of his career, an on-the-rise swingman who can score and defend but pouts when he comes off the bench, a tall, outside shooting sf/pf with a bitter history with the Bulls, a center who hasn't played in ages with a big contract, a 1st round draft pick and someone named Roberson.
Seriously, I thought he did pretty well. I think, after he made the first deal and broke up the core that he drafted/constructed, he just went ahead and said, what else can I do out there?
Hinrich is still here so that's a piece he might move later on.
Paxson's trade grade: B+
