Denver wants cash to take Tinsley

williamsWhile the Indiana Pacers today have reportedly traded Shawne Williams to the Dallas Mavericks for two second round picks and $1.8 million in cash, a deal to trade emabattled guard Jamal Tinsley to Denver is on hold.

Sources close to the Tinsley-to-Nuggets deal said the trade is being held up by Denver’s request for cash to offset some of the remaining salalry left on Tinsley’s contract. Tinsley is due to make $6.75 million this year, $7.2 million next year and $7.5 million during the 2010-11 season.

The Nuggets, NBA sources said, are seeking $3 million from the Pacers. Some fans, I’m guessing, are hoping Pacers officials use some of the money coming in from the Williams-to-Mavericks deal to ship Tinsley to the Rockie Mountain region. The Pacers have told Tinsley to stay at home while a trade is worked out.

  • $3 million and we get rid of Tinsley and his contract?? DO IT!!
  • Surely Herb and Mel can come up with $1.2 after getting the cash in the Williams deal. If they really want this issue gone, now is the time. Soon, will see how serious they are. My prediction: Tinsley is gone by Tuesday. Of course, with this front office, it's difficult to say what they'll do.
  • ...its worth it get rid of that worthless no talent thug. Should of done this years ago!
  • I will stand out in front of Conseco Fieldhouse with a collection plate to make this happen.
  • I'll throw in a 10-spot. No, make that 20.

  1. Those of you yelling to deport them all should at least understand that the law allows minors (if not from a bordering country) to argue for asylum. If you don't like the law, you can petition Congress to change it. But you can't blindly scream that they all need to be deported now, unless you want your government to just decide which laws to follow and which to ignore.

  2. 52,000 children in a country with a population of nearly 300 million is decimal dust or a nano-amount of people that can be easily absorbed. In addition, the flow of children from central American countries is decreasing. BL - the country can easily absorb these children while at the same time trying to discourage more children from coming. There is tension between economic concerns and the values of Judeo-Christian believers. But, I cannot see how the economic argument can stand up against the values of the believers, which most people in this country espouse (but perhaps don't practice). The Governor, who is an alleged religious man and a family man, seems to favor the economic argument; I do not see how his position is tenable under the circumstances. Yes, this is a complicated situation made worse by politics but....these are helpless children without parents and many want to simply "ship" them back to who knows where. Where are our Hoosier hearts? I thought the term Hoosier was synonymous with hospitable.

  3. Illegal aliens. Not undocumented workers (too young anyway). I note that this article never uses the word illegal and calls them immigrants. Being married to a naturalized citizen, these people are criminals and need to be deported as soon as humanly possible. The border needs to be closed NOW.

  4. Send them back NOW.

  5. deport now
