Dallas trades Ian to Indiana for Darren Collison and Dahntay Jones!!!

I just saw that was tweeted several times by pretty solid sources that a sign and trade deal was done involving Ian!!! Why the hell couldn't we do something like that?!?!

In other news...they also plan to amnesty Brendan Haywood. Pretty good moves IMO.

Yeah of course, now damn Dallas gets better! Great. Spurs get crap and other teams keep pulling off these damn trades. Dallas is not great no, but they did get bailed out from having nothing.

Danny Green just became vastly underpaid since he's earning the same as Ian

It was a sign and trade deal.

Wow. That's a great trade for Dallas. Not sure quite what Indiana's thinking. Maybe Collison was ticked that Hill took over his starting spot, because that's why he got traded from NOH to Indiana anyway.

$4M for a backup big isn't ridiculous money. What I don't get is why they didn't just sign him outright as an unrestricted free agent.

Maybe they like what they have as a backup PG and plan on putting Hill into the point for good. Two smalls for a big isn't a bad trade. But still, sign the dude outright and keep Collison!

i agree with this. just Collison alone would've gotten another decent guy back or a draft pick.

I suspect Collison was a malcontent after losing his starting job. Still, that's a lot to give up for Ian.

Dallas is not a bad team with Collison/Jones/Marion/Nowitzki/Kaman.
