View Full Version : Former Pacers that never suited up

My Pacers knowledge these days is seriously lacking. I NEVER get to see the games even when they're on TNT or EScamPN because I'm never home.

**get to the point!** OK OK...I'm wondering if some of you guys and gals can think of some former Pacers that never officially suited up to play for us. You know, for example: We drafted them and then traded them, or a Dale Davis situation where he was traded to N.O. and never played. Who's on our "never played" list?







Disclaimer: This is not to be mistaken as a "players who SHOULD HAVE NEVER played" thread where Jonathan Bender would be 1st on the list.

Only person that comes to mind immediately is Vonteego Cummings. Does that even count?

Was Ferry drafted by us or was he included in a trade?

Eric Piatkowski.

Joe Klein.

John Edwards. Ooops.

What about Gerald Paddio, did he ever suit up?

Well, if you want important names...we can really stretch it to have Michael Jordan on that list? :devil:

How about Damon Bailey never got in anything but a pre-season game. Does that count.

This name would only mean something to Hoosiers fans:

Damon Bailey

Sure, he spent a whole year with the Pacers, but he never played in a game.

EDIT: Wow, seems that someone else posted the same name at the same time. Great minds think alike ;)

Well, no.

Its either draft picks traded before camp (Piatkowski, Vontego, Mitchell Wiggins), or salary-cap throw-ins like Kline, Paddio, and Ferry. Darvin Ham almost made that list.

Don't forget the famous Greg Minor incident, as well.

What about Ann Myers - that should also count for something. :D

Thanks for the welcome, got tired of the trolls/piston fans or the Star board. Wanted to go somewhere more intelligent. Damon only lives about 5 minutes from me.

Not sure if Gerald Paddio ever played for us after he came over with McKey. What about Joe Kleine in the JO/DD deal?

I think he should wear the same colors too. If he wants to show his real commitment to the team that is....

No you don't. 99% of the time he's wearing a t-shirt and jeans. I think the one nice outfit he had got ruined 11/19.

To this day I wonder what exactly happened there. Somebody email Conrad Brunner and lets see if we can get a "where are they now" column about Carlos.

I am about 99.9% sure Gerald Paddio played for the Pacers following the trade, but was cut midway through the year.

Reggie Williams - did he ever play for us before he was traded for Vinnie Askew?

And by the way, its too bad that Vinnie Askew ever played for us. :banghead:

It took me three days to think of that one - there's a reason that is the season we do not discuss.

I thought that was Kline.
