More Trades, More Rumors...

-The two most fragile players in the NBA have been traded for each other, as the Raptors and Pacers have finally agreed on a deal that sends TJ Ford, Rasho Nesterovic, and the 17th pick to Indiana for Jermaine O'Nea and a player to be named. This deal is pending physicals for both players and for salary cap reasons cannot actually be completed until July 1st.

-The Bobcats have completed their second trade of the week as they have agreed to send a future first round pick to Denver (lottery protected) for the 20th pick, where reports say they hope to land Roy Hibbert. Earlier in the day they sent the 27th pick to Portland for cash.

-There are rumors swirling that Portland will send Jarrett Jack and the 13th pick to the Nets for Marcus Williams and the 10th pick.

-Nicolas Batum's physical never was circulated to team's throughout the league, and many people believe that he was given a guarantee by the Spurs that they would select him with the 26th pick. Talent-wise, he is probably better than that, but without the physical there is a much better chance he will drop to the Spurs.
