Poll - Raptors' Barbosa to Indiana for Second-Round Pick - Like? Disklike?



Trade deadline is done and there was a greater flurry of activity than many expected. Nene, welcome to the wild world of the Wizards.

Nick Young, you get a fresh start with the Clips.

Derek Fisher? Join Marcus Camby and the Retirement League All-Stars.

Portland? Well...you're essentially pushing reset on things.

As for the Toronto Raptors, well they made one move on the day (not counting waiving Anthony Carter), shipping guard Leandro Barbosa to the Indiana Pacers for a second-round draft pick. The Pacers were far enough under the cap to absorb Barbosa's salary, and as a rental player, Barbosa's contract expires at the end of this season, a second-round pick seemed to be all Raptors' GM Bryan Colangelo could fetch.

We saw the value of first-round picks today as even the Lakers pick, sent to the Cavs as part of a deal for Ramon Sessions, had the contracts of Jason Kapono and Luke Walton attached. (And, the pick likely falls between 25 and 30.)

The Pacers pick right now would give Toronto the 52nd pick in the draft, and barring a complete "crash and burn" end to their season, likely sticks in about that range.

But for a team looking for more flexibility, both in terms of the cap space they cleared today, and the extra draft pick acquired, I'm not sure you can complain too much.

We want to hear from you though, so give us your thoughts on the deal below...
