Real 2K Insider celebrates the first major trade of the NBA season with a roster update only hours after it went through.
In case you've been living under a rock, Allen Iverson was traded to Detroit for Chauncey Billups, Antonio McDyess, and Cheikh Samb. Juwan Howard was waived to make room for McDyess.
Later on tonight I'll post a breakdown of the trade for both teams, as well as the Biggest Movers in 2.1.
PLEASE NOTE: I am leaving Antonio McDyess on Detroit and Juwan Howard on Denver for the following reason.
McDyess is going to be bought out by Denver and he will likely re-sign with Detroit when that happens. I think by league rules he might have to wait 30 days to re-sign with Detroit but odds are he is going back. Denver waived Howard to make room for McDyess and they are expected to re-sign Howard once his roster spot is free again.
I just know I am going to have some crackpot download the roster, visit the blog, not read this post, and just go straight to telling me what an idiot I am for getting the trade details "wrong".
