Don't be surprised if the Golden State point guard is wearing a new uniform by the Feb. 19 trade deadline. A source close to Van Exel said Portland and Indiana have interest in trading for Van Exel.
Portland is considering trading forward Rasheed Wallace to Golden State in exchange for Van Exel and center Erick Dampier. Point guard has been an area of concern for Indiana, and Van Exel's mother lives in Indianapolis. Van Exel reportedly has been critical of Warriors coach Eric Musselman and would like to be back in a winning situation. He said recently that he wouldn't mind playing for a Texas team in the future.
Van Exel, who played in Denver from 1998-2002, is averaging 13.1 points and 5.7 rebounds while being bothered by knee problems. He was listed as probable for tonight's game after suffering a hip pointer during Thursday's practice.
I'd love to have Van Exel come to Indiana but at what price? I don't want to lose Al Harrington.
