    No, no, no. Please run the numbers. We need money left for a run at KD.


    Remember when we could have gotten 1-2 solid players and a possible Top 3 draft pick in the 2017 NBA Draft by trading away Paul George?

    While we are in dream world.....

    Starting five of Turner, Young, Durant, George, Teague....... Bench of Ellis, Stuckey, Miles, Allen, Robinson, Christmas, Young, Whittington.....

    In reality starters are probably set, Turner, Young, George, Miles/Ellis, Teague.... not bad

    See, I think this makes it MORE likely we keep Ian, or at least keep him to trade him later. Now we're starting to get to the point where having his bird rights may come into play.

    I will say, Young is pretty much the perfect fit to what we needed.
    Pretty much guarantees that PG will never have to play the 4 again. Also gives us a chance to go huge with PG at the 2 spot!

    What's the catch with Thad Young. How did we get a 15 and 9 guy for the 20th pick in this bad draft?

    Nah, I think TPTB realized Ian's price tag is going to be too rich for their blood, especially considering Myles is waiting in the wings at the 5. I'd be shocked if Ian Mahinmi is a Pacer next year. Absolutely shocked.

    Can't we still sign him under the Bird rights?

    I'd have no problem running a Thad/Myles/Mahinmi frontcourt rotation.

    Exactly.

    This is the best move to make.

    We have locked in a Starting Tweener Forward at $12 to 13 mil a year for the next 2 years!
    I actually meant it was a move that helped them be good, while simultaneously ensuring that they cannot achieve great. A play it safe move. A win 45-52 games before losing in the playoffs move. The sort of move you expect from a franchise who has already erased winning a title from the possibilities, and is looking for some nice moral victories.

    Probably can get one more player. Hopefully a shooter.

    I mean, as Zach Lowe pointed out we still have ~$15 million to play with and could go over the cap to sign Ian, so it's possible, it just would be bad resource allocation imo.

    As much as I hate to admit it, Mahinmi probably played himself into a nice contract this offseason.

    I think a good move given what you're looking at at #20. However, shooting is still an issue. Young will board and, hopefully, defend perimeter 4s. What about traditional 4s? Can he check them? He won't offer any shooting though. Particularly from distance.

    Bird is being very aggressive, very early. I feel like we're going to find a way to either get back into the draft or facilitate another deal with Ellis/Stuckey somehow. Bird's phone must be on fire these last couple days.

    15-9 on bad teams year in and year out. Never proven a thing on a team that wasn't garbage.
