I figured we'd start with the easy one first. What do you figure Fred Jones will make? What's a fair price for an equivalent player?

I'm guessing a 5-year deal starting at 3.5mil/year.

I agree with you. 3.5 mil a year sounds about right.

Would the Pacers match that?

Think he might get a little over-paid and snatched away from us, not many good free agents this year.

I agree....but it also depends on whether we resign Peja or not. If Peja is resigned...then I want Granger to be the 6th man. If not...then resign Freddie to be the backup SG for the market price.

For what it's worth, he's an RFA. If somebody is willing to give a long-term salary starting at over 4mil to a 6'2" SG who can't play the point, they're welcome to him.

I couldn't say. That would be my personal upper bound, though.

I'm going high. Poor FA crop will mean somebody will get desperate and overpay. I mean, he won the freakin' dunk contest, that's a signing a fanbase can really get behind.

Some team will offer him the mid level exception.

I keep thinking a team like the Hornets might offer him the full MLE, and dare the Pacers to match.

If they'll give him the MLE, they're welcome to him. He's not worth that much to them, and definitely not that much to us.

I'm surprised Joe D doesn't go after him. Fred's got the whole package: wingspan, improving player, and an Indy fan favorite.

Fred made $2.3M last year, and the amount of his qualifying offer is $3.2M.

I believe his new contract will start at about $3.5M, which is probably far belolw wat Freddie will want. So, I think Freddie will push for a shorter contract of 2-3 years, because he will hope that he can cash in bigger on the contract following his next one.

So... 3 years max starting at $3.5M.

That makes a lot of sense, and in that case, he'll want to play a lot of minutes, so I think he'll want to sign where he thinks he'll get a lot of minutes, but then of course the Pacers can match any offer.

I don't really know what TPTB think of Freddie, but I do think that Rick likes him

I think someone will give him the MLE.

What is this season's MLE? - not sure how to vote.

Just curious.
What guard making $4.5M now you'd rather have than Fred?

Dwanye Wade makes only 3.8 this year. I might take him over Fred if I were really pushed...........

To be perfectly honest, I'd love to have Fred backing up Rip next year, and if I were Joe I'd pay part (not all) of the MLE if I thought Indy wasn't going to match.

As a backup SG, and on non-rookie contracts, I'd consider the following guys to be, at worst, lateral moves.

Adrian Griffin, Tony Delk, Jay Williams, Maurice Evans, Jon Barry, Shane Battier, Rasual Butler, Kyle Korver, Raja Bell, Voshon Lenard, Juan Dixon, Brent Barry, Michael Finley, and MoPete.

There are a lot of decent backup SGs still on rookie contracts.

Bad choice for Fred... he'd have to be back in range of Wallace's brother.

I dont think he's allowed to go to games anymore. Didn't think of that, though.

I believe the Pistons have an option year left for Delk at the minimum, so it's probably doubtful they opt for Fred at a $3 million increase anyway.
