Not that Miller, we're talking about Brad Miller. Here are the details of the trade
Brad Miller, John SalmonsSacramento gets:
Andres Nocioni, Drew Gooden, and Cedric Simmons from Chicago. Ike Diago from PortlandPortland gets:
I have to say, Sacramento got fleeced in this deal. The talent was obviously lopsided, but that isn't what really bothers me here. It's the fact that Sacramento gave up the most talent AND took back the worst contract, by far, involved in the deal. Nocioni is really a garbage player, and he's signed for 5 years/$35M+.
I'm not sure how trades like this happen, but I'd absolutely love it if the Sixers could find themselves on the winning end of one of them some day.
I'm wondering if the Bulls may not be done. I'm not sure where Salmons is going to find his minutes on that team. Good move for Chicago, possibly enough to put them into the playoffs.
