NBA Trade Rumor: T.J. Ford For D.J. Augustin (Updated)

With a little over 30 minutes before the NBA Trade Deadline, there are still rumors surfacing for the first time. According to Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski, Charlotte and Indiana are in serious talks on a deal that would send T.J. Ford to the Bobcats for a package that includes D.J. Augustin.

While no other information is known at this time, we’ll keep you posted.

UPDATE: According to Woj, the Indiana-Charlotte discussions are broad, as talks included Ford and Brandon Rush for Augustin, Nazr Mohammed and Gerald Henderson.

UPDATE: With the Bobcats big men hurting – Mohammed and Tyson Chandler missed practice for a second straight day and DeSagana Diop will be sidelined up to two weeks with a sprained right knee – the Bobcats couldn’t afford to trade big for small. Also, if Felton decides to leave this summer, Charlotte needed Augustin as insurance.

What do you think? Would you make this trade?

    Yeah, that shirt is horrible. Is it me or does it seem like all of the shorter basketball players wear clothes that are WAY too big for them? Like they go into a store and are like “I’m an NBA player, get me some NBA sized clothes!”. Damn lil’ man complex or something…

    It’s a good deal for DJ personally, as he’d probably earn his way to being a starter within a week. Bad deal for the Bobcats who seem to be making strides in their personnel choices. The other guys the Bobcats have taken on ala Jackson have been known for bad personal decisions (even thats questionable) but not making bad on court decisions. Ford is the other way around. Not worth the risk.

    I hope you guys do some sort of team by team breakdown outlining all this trade deadline craziness. You know like who is where and what was given up. It’s been confusing.Thanks

    Both undersized PGs, both starter potential PGs but somehow back ups. TJ for DJ. Shoot-first for pass-first. Blackhole for Whitehole. LOL.
