Default Raps Trade Davis And JYD To Chicago For Rose And Marshall

This Is Almost A Done Deal....Just Need The NBA Offices To Approve....Davis Wanted Out, Which Is Sad....But We're Losin' JYD...I Just Don't See Rose Or Marshall As Bein' An Upside To This, As Much As A Jamison/Delk Trade...

The Toronto Raptors and Chicago Bulls finally hammered out a trade on Saturday, with the Raptors agreeing to send power forward Antonio Davis, forward Jerome Williams and little-used forward Chris Jefferies to Chicago for star forward Jalen Rose, forward Donyell Marshall and forward Lonny Baxter.

TSN has learned that while the deal has been done, it will not be finalized by the NBA until the league office re-opens on Monday. The team would not confirm the report, but have said that Davis and Williams are still a part of ongoing negotiations.



Davis and Williams were left out of the lineup for Toronto's game in Miami on Saturday night.



Reports of a blockbuster trade reached a fever pitch last Friday when numerous sources reported the Raptors were on the verge of a deal with the Bulls that would involve Rose, Davis and others.

Chicago had long been rumoured to have been shopping Rose, a small forward in his 10th NBA season. Rose, averaging 13.3 points a game, will bring much-needed offence to the Raptors.

Davis, in his 11th season, had said that he would not mind being traded from Toronto. He is averaging just 8.6 points for the offensively inept Raptors, who are among the lowest-scoring teams in the NBA.

For Davis, Chicago is the perfect place to be traded to. His family already lives there after Davis sold his Toronto home last summer. And he nearly signed there three years ago.

Williams, a fan favourite in Toronto nicknamed the Junk Yard Dog, was hoping not to be traded.

"I live for the city of Toronto," Williams said last weekend.

Jefferies, a first-round draft pick of the Los Angeles Lakers in 2002, has appeared in only two games with the Raptors this season.

The 6-9 Marshall averaged 8.7 points per game and 6.2 rebounds in 16 games this season while the 6-8 Baxter averaged 4.3 points per game and 2.5 rebounds in 14 appearances.

CHICAGO (Ticker) - The Chicago Bulls and Toronto Raptors reportedly have completed a six-player trade that sends Jalen Rose to Canada.

Late Saturday afternoon, ESPN Radio 1000 in Chicago reported that the Bulls sent Rose and forwards Donyell Marshall and Lonny Baxter to the Raptors for forwards Antonio Davis, Jerome Williams and Chris Jefferies.

Neither side has confirmed the deal. It had been reported for more than a week that Rose would be traded to Toronto.

Rose would give the Raptors a formidable 1-2 scoring punch, alongside Vince Carter, who is fourth in the NBA at 23.8 points per game but has received little help. Only one other Raptor - rookie Chris Bosh - is in double figures.

A go-to guy over the past four seasons, Rose is averaging only 13.4 points per game, 6.7 below his career-best total with Chicago in 2002-03. The 6-8 swingman has chipped in 4.0 rebounds and 3.5 assists - second on the team - per contest.

Rose established himself as a premier player in the league during the 2000 playoffs with Indiana, when he averaged 20.8 points per game. Coming into the season, his career average was 14.4 points per contest for Denver, Indiana and Chicago.

The 6-9 Marshall had developed into a solid contributor before slumping to 8.7 points per game this season, 5.7 off his number from 2002-03. The 30-year-old also grabbed 6.2 rebounds per contest and led the team with 20 blocks.

Baxter is in only his second NBA season. The 6-8, 260-pounder was averaging 4.3 points and 2.5 boards.

Toronto is off to an 8-7 start.

The Bulls are looking to further shake up a team that has lost seven straight games and is off to a 4-12 start. On Monday, they fired coach Bill Cartwright and replaced him Friday with Scott Skiles.

While Rose is probably the best player in the deal, the Bulls would get a pair of bruising, hard-working, veteran forwards in Davis and Williams, which could complement a roster that has seven players born in the 1980s.

Chicago is just 14th in the NBA in rebounding and second-to-last in defense, allowing 101.1 points per game. Davis and Williams should help in both areas, particularly on the interior.

A former All-Star, the 6-9 Davis has averaged 8.6 points and 9.5 rebounds per game this season. The 35-year-old entered the year with career averages of 10.8 points and nearly 8.0 boards for Indiana and Toronto.

The 6-9 Williams, nicknamed "Junkyard Dog" for his aggressive, hustling style, was averaging 5.1 points and 8.5 rebounds per contest while leading the team with 19 steals.

A reserve for the better part of his career, Williams began the season with career averages of 7.0 points and just under 7.0 rebounds per contest.

In his second season out of Fresno State, the 6-8 Jefferies had played only eight minutes this season and was on the injured list as of Saturday. He averaged 3.9 points per game as a rookie.

not a bad deal, it seems like we're getting rid of our problems for theirs, tho.

this will give the raps some scoring punch and the bulls some added rebs and toughness. so everyone wins.

especially that whiny pussy-whipped bitch, Antonio Davis his wife finally got what he wanted.
