Assume that everyone is healthy and unsuspended.

Who do you want to see on the court? This isn't necessarily who will win you the most games... who do you want to see?

Rush, George
Granger, Dunleavy

I took the developmental approach so I left some vets out of the rotation.

See, I had this problem. I'd like to play Dun, but he's least likely of the four shooting guards (Rush, Lance, PG, Dun) to be part of the future, so I took him out.

With Foster, I think he'll be here until he retires. So I'm okay with sitting Magnum for him. (So long as Foster is actually better)

I went with:

Collison/Stephenson
Dunleavy/George
Granger/Posey
McRoberts/Hansbrough (Or other way around I couldn't care less)
Hibbert/Foster

Got to have Foster in there as the backup. I think benching him for Magnum is just plain silly. Magnum needs alot of work, and his production level will be similar to Solomon's for a while.

Foster is an extremely good rebounder, even with a bad back, and he moves the ball around very well, and makes good cuts.

Foster has also been the solid rock of the Pacers through thick and thin.

I also feel bad for leaving Brandon out, but he's really going to have a tough time getting back with his suspension with Dunleavy, George, Stephenson, and Posey all chomping at the bit for the playing time. Brandon has had a history of playing like crap for the first couple of months of the season, and it probably isn't going to change.

This could be the beggining of the end for Brandon Rush with the Indiana Pacers. Sad, but he has consistently failed. I like him as a player February-April (even though he can still be more aggresive), but it's not worth the wait.

Jim has said that it was his spot to lose, and he has lost it getting suspended.

I want to see Posey get some real minutes as he and George share the 6th man role. They can both splash the three, play smothering defense, and all out hustle. Posey and Foster are going to be the good ol' elder statesmen. And I want to see them play together at some point.

Hate to leave AJ out, but it looks like he needs work conditioning. And even though Stephenson is bad at defense, at least he can get out and run and is a big time prospect.

I cannot believe Collison is not 100%.

Also, people have short memories. Dunleavy was as good as Granger just 3 seasons ago. You will see that the dude is not dead yet. Don't forget that Murphleavy was the problem, not Dunleavy. Considering our PF will not stretch the floor this year, be ready for a healthy dose of Mike, Brandon and Danny on the perimeter. Hopefully George too.

went through it quick and did it from the gut... interesting having OPTIONS. I ended up with:
DC/TJ
MDJ/Brush
Granger/George
McRob/Hans
Hibbert/Foster

I want to see:

Collison/Price
Dunleavy/George
Granger/Posey/Dunleavy
Hasbrough/Posey/McBob - depending on matchups
Hibbert/Foster

Either Rush or Jones (or both) need to be traded if only because it isn't going to be possible to keep all the wings happy with limited playing time.

Also, Posey is going to be one of our better players this year at both forward positions. I could potentially see him starting in some situations.

The poll is pretty confusing, but here's mine.

PG Collison/Price
SG Dunleavy/Rush (George)
SF Granger/George
PF Hansbrough/McRoberts
C Hibbert/Foster

Ithink he may be done here. He brings nothing but his "D" which idk, has never looked too tremendous to me since he's been here. It's to painful watchinjg the ball get to him and knowing he CAN'T shoot it... Posey, Rush, and George all should be in before Dahntay i feel now. Kinda sad

They have to get down to 15, Wells said they want a 2 for 1 trade, not likely. Said they are looking to move a wing. That basically means D Jones, Rush, Posey, or Dunleavy.

I'd guess Dunleavy would be held until he can bring his value back up and be a nice chip at the trade deadline.

It's not Paul George or Danny. I doubt it's Lance or he'd be gone already.

So I mean it's getting narrowed down to Posey, Rush, and D Jones, imho.

I think they value Posey's veteran savvy and he has a larger salary to swallow along with potential trade deadline value.

Only reason I would think it's not D Jones is he's proven and is relatively cheap with two years left on his contract.

I'm leaning towards Rush, not sure it's the right decision, but I'd understand why they did it. You wonder if he can get over the mental hurdle of applying his skills, ever.

I think any of those 3 are available for the right trade, but I think it's near impossible to move a guy in preseason unless there's a long term injury. Teams just fool themselves to falling in love with their roster to easily. Easier to stand pat. Bird/Morway fight this and the fact that most teams are trying to get down to 15 not up to it.

If Brandon looks exactly the same in the preseason as he has most of the past two years and Lance and Paul show promise, I'm guessing he's gone.

I'd put D Jones as second even though he still has another year left. Posey as third with a slight savings with a buyout.

Brandon makes sense to me, low salary, not shown dramatic improvement, one year contract, 5 game suspension. It kinda adds up, I think.

Maybe you can trade Brandon to Dallas for a 2nd rounder?

Of course I'm guessing. About 100 other things could happen, so who knows.

I understand your point, but trading Rush for a 2nd rounder would be a horrible deal IMO.

They could get a much better deal during the season if they hadn't signed Rolle without having a roster space for him.

I know they wanted to keep Rolle but if trading Rush for a 2nd rounder is the option, I'm wondering why they didn't pass on Rolle and trade Rush straight for a proven PF if that is what the Pacers need.

However, since there's nothing we can do concerning the 16 spots we're having now, I just hope that it's S.Jones who will be cut. That still leaves us Rush or whoever as a trading chip.

I think S.Jones would neither play a big role next season nor would he help us in getting a good trade.

As the team roster stands right now...

DC, TJ
Dunleavy, George
Granger, Posey
McRoberts, Hansbrough
Hibbert, Foster


I left off AJ instead of TJ because despite AJ's promise, he's coming off an injury and TJ is great when he's the backup PG. If AJ's fully healthy, I think I'd choose him instead. Knee injuries take a while to get over and usually come with setbacks.

I'd have to include Posey because he has too much savvy, he's too good a defender, and too much of a pure shooter to leave on the bench. I'd choose him over Rush.

From what I was told, Magnum only has 50 grand guaranteed. Without a trade, he's almost surely the one who is gone.

Knee injuries take a while to get over and usually come with setbacks.

It is true that most knee injuries take a while, but when you typically hear about a knee injury it is a sprain, torn ACL, MCL, or something to do with the ligaments. A broken knee is a bone problem which typically have a much shorter recovery time to, and doesn't have much affect on the strength of the knee. The reason ligaments have such long recoveries is because your ligaments are what give your joints strength, stability, and flexibility. If you could withstand the pain a person could more easily play through a broken bone because the ligaments are still intact. While the same isn't true with a ligament which would cause your knee to just collapse under you.
