Insider suggests a Harrington for Terry swap - not sure if it jives with salaries, but my first reaction was, hell yes.

I am not sure, however, if Terry is a 1 or a 2 - maybe that is the problem. The only thing I know about Terry is from what I see of him against us - he torches us.

I don't care how tall he is. The guy can shoot. And that's really all we need.

A backcourt of Tinsley and Terry scares me to death. I don't want that.

Terry's game is that of a shooting guard, but if he plays that position then you need to have a big point guard.

Terry would be the perfect 3rd guard, playing both spots, but as a starter, no thanks

I like Jason Terry but it will not bode will for us having to small guards. If we could possibly get stephen jackson in the deal i would go for that.

I don't know whether i like him or not. I don't think we'll get him though.

I still don't understand the fascination with Jason.

I don't think so, but not for sure.

I think Indiana should now just focus on getting a shooting guard. Sign one or trade Harrington.

I'd take Terry in a heartbeat.

I've seen him against other teams than the Pacers and he isn't going to give up much more in defense on the perimeter than Reggie does, in spite of his size.

Offensively, he can bang it in over defenders who are a lot bigger than he is. He's not really going to pound his way down the post against a bigger defender, buit we want someone who can quick off the dribble or pop an outside shot and Terry can do.

Freddie may be Terry at some point, but I want Terry now, frankly.

Imagine Terry coming in for Reg, playing some 2 minutes then sliding to 1 when Fred comes in for Mel. :drool:

He can shoot.I won't be mad if we get him.But if we can't get him go for Jamal Crawford.

If he were to be traded to the Pacers I would love him. If he doesn't come here then I say he sucks!:P

Do I like Terry?? Hell, yes!!:scream:
The guy is an offensive presence. A strong one. And on a defensive minded team like this one, he could be a real catalyst.

I agree with Bill that Terry would be no bigger a liablity than Reggie, but with a WHOLE lot better upside.

Does the though of tow small guards being in at the same time bother me? Not really. Why? Look at the title winning Detroit Pistons.

No, not the recent ones.

The ones from around 1990. Dumars...Thomas...Vinnie Johnson. The Psitons made other teams adjust to them, not the other way around.

Whereas some of you say we'd get posted up a lot, I say we'd run the other team ragged.

Terry's problem is that he's been forced to play at the one spot. Let him be a 2 and that's it.

Salry-wise, a Terry trade is kinda tough straight up. HAwks onyl have 4 players under contract right now for trade purposes and odds are it would have to be a 2 for 2 trade...along with the fact that Terry, I think, gets right of refusal, if he wants.

But Doug, I say with this coaching staff, any defensive liabilities posed by Terry would be greatly minimized.

I'd rate Terry above Flip and Crawford and below Mobley.

Perfectly put!

I think that People forget that Jason's run at point the last two years have been pretty successful. I even think he averaged more assists than Tinsley.

The last 3 years, Tinsley has averaged more asts.
The last 2 years, Tinsley has averaged less TO's.

Plus he's done it in less minutes than Terry.

Terry is 6'2''. His shooting has been dropping off, and his pg skills are mediocre at best. From teh times i HAVE seen him play, he's not a playmaker at all. His assists don't come from running an offense. HE just gets so many minutes and touches that he gets assists here and there.

Offensively he is pretty potent, but not potent enough in my opinion to pair him up with Tinsley in the backcourt. The defensive liability would be too great.

Tinsley is an offensive quarterback. He gets the ball where it needs to go to put the team in the position to score. He's the only player on the team capable of pushing the rock as a distributer consistently.

But I do agree that i would put Terry above flip and below mobley. Dont even get me started on FLip Murray.....:mad:

Comparing
Tinsley and Terry to Isiah and Dumars defensively (or offensively for that matter) is a laugher. Terry is not capable of guarding sgs. Dumars was built to guard the 1, 2 and even 3 if he needed. He is bigger, taller, stronger and more defensive minded than Terry will ever become. He is one of the greatest defenders under 6'4'' in the history of the NBA. The only players i can even think of offhand that can compare of Gary Payton and Sidney Moncrief (never seen moncrief play, there im going by what ive heard)

And Thomas was one of the quickest players ever.
He must have averaged almost 2 steals a game for his career. Tinsley is pretty quick, and is a pretty good thief, but Thomas could snatch that ball whenver he wanted.

I dont want a small SG. Unless he's Joe Dumars circa 1990. In a LOT of ways Terry would be a greater defensive liability than REggie. There are much better options out there. Pretty much if he's over 6'5'' and can shoot better than Terry and his suspect jumper, then bring him on.
