I would trade Jeff Foster straight up for Mark Blount.

If I were a Pacer fan, I agree.

Agree.

But we could have pursued Blount and offered Croshere in an S&T. Ainge and Red both liked Croshere, and Blount was ready to leave Boston. He could have been a Pacer.

IMO, that's our biggest mistake this summer. Not pursuing Blount.

Blount and JO starting, with Foster backing them both up? I'd take that combo over Jermaine and Brad.

I'd rather keep foster. Without FOster JO has to do pretty much ALL of the rebounding....blount isnt going to do it.

But then Blount can stay out on the floor for more than 20 minutes a game.

They're a wash, really, though Blount has some semblance of a jumpshot

Agree....Blount is a much more polished offensive player who is finally coming into his own. He is a legit starting center in this league.

Foster is a starting center only because there is no other alternative on the roster. Although I think Jeff would be the perfect man off the bench for any team in the league to back up both the 4 and 5 positions.

Yes. What everyone else said pretty much. Foster's that hustle guy you'd love to have coming off your bench. Blount's a solid NBA starter.

I am truly amazed about the lack of support for Jeff here.

Now I'll give you all a head start: Jeff is not the ideal "bang with Shaq" type center.

However... (proof is in the sauce):

Jeff is a better rebounder (one of the best in the league)
He CAN score, but is simply not meant to do that, he has a nice short jumper and his putbacks/dunks/lay-ups are solid, again, he is never called upon these actions, but I remember 20 pts in the playoffs.
Jeff is the ultimate roleplayer on this team, he looks for JO or a shooter when he has the ball, because that is his job, not because he can not do it himself.

Now the answer is no :D

I would have to watch Blount play more. I got some idea in the playoffs, but I wasn't focusing on him. If he really is as has been described "Foster with a modest post-up game, and a shot-blocker", then yes, agreed.

Inexplicably, Blount developed into a good player last season. Even the Celtics were shocked, I'd imagine.

On the basis of last year, I'd now take Blount, if asked to take just one.

Blount didn't even have a good year, he had about three months of, granted, really exceptional play, but even Sports Guy questions if he's finally developed, or if he just realized it was a contract year.

GO!!!!!

Pass

I woulden't trade Jeff for anyone named Blount

he's slowing becoming a Solid Player and I love Jeff's Style

like above was said... 20 pts in a play off game, if he wanted more shots and more shot oppurtunities where given to him he could be do 15 pts a game easy

I am truly amazed about the lack of support for Jeff here.

Foster is great and I love watching him play. But I am also able to stop being a "homer" long enough to just see things from a basketball stand point. It has nothing to do with a lack of support for Jeff....

I don't know much about Blounts game, but I really like Jeffs game, so no, Jeff is a keeper, he is the perfect role player
