Pacers Trade Deadline Wrap-Up:</TH></TR><TR><TD>
Jared Wade (8p9s)<br><br>In December, the Pacers used the amnesty provision, a one-time forgiveness<br>to remove one playerís contract from your teamís book for salary cap purposes<br>allowable under the leagueís new collective bargaining agreement, on James<br>Posey. Then, with his onerous $7.1 million deal instantly turned into cap space,<br>Larry Bird did...nothing.

Many presumed the new-found money would be used to fill one of the teamís<br>needs, the most glaring of which seemed to be a scorer in the back court. They<br>(sorta) tried to woo Jamal Crawford, for instance, with no success. There was a<br>lot of talk surrounding Indiana trading for OJ Mayo, but again no dice. Bird was<br>seemingly unwilling to pay a price that he thought was too high to for anyone<br>on the market.

Many fans were disappointed. But Bird has said that there could be significant<br>benefits to being below the salary cap even during the season. And now weíre<br>seeing that in action as Bird just swung a deal in which he gave up essentially<br>nothing (a second-round pick) to acquire instant-offense combo guard Leandro<br>Barbosa from the Toronto Raptors.

Being below the salary cap by roughly $14 million meant that Bird was able to<br>absorb Barbosaís contract, which is an expiring $7.6 million that ends after<br>this season, without having to send back any salary to the Raptors, whose<br>motivation for unloading the Brazilian Blur was likely that they are no longer<br>really trying to win games this season, donít see him as a long-term part of<br>their future, and were attempting to lower payroll expenses.

While it was a savvy move to sit on this cap space and wait for the right deal,<br>it is not immediately apparent how the former Sixth Man of the Year Award<br>winner will fit into the Pacers rotation...CONTINUE READING 8p9s (http://www.eightpointsnineseconds.com/2012/03/pacers-trade-for-leandro-barbosa-only-give-up-a-2nd-round-pick/)</TD></TR><TR><TD>
Zack Lowe (SI's The Point Forward)<br><br>The Pacers entered deadline day with about $14.3 million in cap space, the<br>most in the league, meaning they could absorb salary up to that amount<br>without sending out any player salary in return. They have decided to use<br>more than half of that to swallow up Leandro Barbosaís $7.6 million expiring<br>contract in exchange for a second-round draft pick in order to (in theory)<br>prop up an offense that has ranked as average or worse in points per<br>possession all season.

Barbosa, a combo guard who can still score in isolation and via the pick-and-<br>roll, will display some occasionally nutty shot selection and joins a crowded<br>guard/wing rotation that already includes Darren Collison, Paul George, George<br>Hill, A.J. Price, Dahntay Jones (who can and does swing to small forward) and<br>(until recently) Lance Stephenson. The Pacers really donít know what kind of<br>offense theyíll get from any of these guys on a night-to-night basis, Barbosa<br>simply adds another ďroll the diceĒ piece to Frank Vogelís arsenal.

Barbosa is fading with age; he has attempted 5.1 long two-point jumpers per<br>40 minutes this season, by far the highest number of his career, and he has<br>hit a horrid 28 percent of those shots. He doesnít get to the rim as often as<br>he used to. He will take at least one maddening off-the-dribble jumper<br>while nearly falling out of bounds every game. At 6-foot-3, he is probably a<br>below-average defender at this point and can struggle against the bigger<br>and physical shooting guards in the league.

He is also not a point guard, even if the Raptors have tried him there in very,<br>very limited minutes this season. And point guard is where Indiana can<br>really use some help. Collisonís development has been uneven on both<br>ends, and Hillís game...CONTINUE READING THE POINT FORWARD (http://nba-point-forward.si.com/2012/03/15/pacers-land-guard-leandro-barbosa/)</TD></TR><TR><TD>
Mark Deeks (The Basketball Jones)<br><br>Todayís other completed trade, thus far, sees another salary dump. Indianaís<br>swaths of unused cap space have just been used on someone other than Chris<br>Kaman, as they trade a future second round pick to Toronto in exchange for<br>two guards, Leandro Barbosa and Anthony Carter (probably).

The 29-year-old Barbosa played his best basketball a couple of years ago, in<br>the Seven Seconds or Less era, and hasnít been as productive since it ended.<br>He canít get to the rim like he once could, prefers the long two to the three for<br>some reason, and just is not especially efficient for one who shoots so much.<br>Nevertheless, he still produces highly, to the tune of 12.2 points and absolutely<br>nothing else per game, a bench scorer so productive that on certain nights this<br>year that he has carried the Raptors offense to victories on nights that they<br>probably didnít want their offense carrying them to victories. Itís tough to tank<br>when your 29-year-old veteran is scoring 17 points in 25 minutes and eking<br>out wins over fellow tankers. But this is what Barbosa does, and in adding a<br>high caliber sixth man while subtracting nothing from their incumbent<br>roster, the Pacers just improved themselves significantly.

Arguably, however, they could have gotten a better rental. And I donít mean<br>Chris Kaman.

Indiana is middle of the pack in terms of team points per game, yet they shoot<br>only 43.2 percent as a team, 5th worst in the league. This is due to a lack of<br>creative ability in the half-court offense. In spite of the promising start to his<br>career, Darren Collison has rather tapered off since his trade to Indiana, a very<br>solid player who just doesnít have the talent level to take a team far as a lead<br>guard. (The new Jarrett Jack, if you will.) George Hill similarly thrives in a<br>bench contributor/spot starter role, but he too doesnít have the ability to lead<br>an elite half-court...CONTINUE READING THE BASKETBALL JONES (http://blogs.thescore.com/tbj/2012/03/15/breaking-down-the-sam-young-and-leandro-barbosa-trades/#more-36216)</TD></TR></TABLE>

Whether Danny said it on Twitter, or in a post game interview, or wrote it on a napkin in an airport diner, if you're going to talk about other teams being beatable, you can't lay a goose egg on the effort and execution end.

It's not any one player, it's the team as a whole. It wouldn't matter if Hill started at the point tonight. The Knicks got fired up coming into this game, probably because of DG comments, and we simply aren't matching their energy. Every call also seemed to go there way, but I ain't putting it on the REFS. They came out a punched us in the mouth and we never were able to recover. Not sure how much of a chance we have being down 19.

1. Hill is not a point guard. It's already been proven, but I kind of hope Vogel does start him at some point, just to prove it - again.

2. This game isn't DC's fault. He's gotten his teammates in position to score, and they've missed. And he's scored for us.

Does he defend? No. But that's hardly a "just DC" problem. Only PG, Hill, and AJ have bothered trying to defend this game. And our interior defense is FAR worse than our perimeter defense.
