    I'm not sure Jaylen Brown is good, or ever will be good. Bradley, Crowder, and the Brooklyn pick. Gives us an upgrade at the two, Crowder can replace 70% of what PG gives you, and you get the chance at a blue chipper in the draft. Hell, that's a speed rebuild. Myles-Thad-Crowder-Bradley-Teague could be a playoff five in the East. Add in a potential Lonzo Ball, Markelle Fultz, Harry Giles, or whoever, and you've got something.
    Brown is 20. You're entitled to your opinion but he's 20. Saying he's "not good or ever will be good" is asinine

    Not just this year, deflections have been a Pacers staple since JOB. He got it from Pitino, Frank got it from JOB and Pitino (Frank REALLY pushes deflections), Nate got it from Frank
    So Nate got that from Frank? Nate ex player and coaching before Frank saw the importance of deflections from Franks mentoring ......?

    I'm not perfect and neither are you.

    Romans 3:23 for all have sinned and fall short of the esteem of Elohim,
    Ephisians 4: 32 And be kind towards one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as Elohim also forgave you in Messiah.

    I said I'm not sure if he's good or if he ever will be good. It wasn't a proclamation that he won't ever be. He's shown flashes but he underwhelmed a bit at Cal and hasn't lit the NBA world on fire yet. Lord forbid I don't crown a Boston guy as the next great thing.

    Deflections are not steals. Under JOB, defenders were to go after the ball to take it away. Frank changed the emphasis from getting the ball to just deflecting it - thus the rise in deflections but the more average opponent turnover and points off turnovers rate. With Nate we're back to an emphasis on risking your man-to-man defense in order to steal it.

    One could say Nate got the defensive philosophy from JOB.

    Which is why I'd rather have Crowder. I know what he is, I know what he isn't. Ceiling's not as high, floor is not as low.

    Honestly he doesn't look that impressive to me either. Then again, Boston seems to collect too many players at the same position thus some people never get onto the floor.

    Our Pacers have issues, but thankfully we dont have 1 or 2 guys sniping at each other on the internet.

    Trading PG would be the most insane move in franchise history.

    Agreed. He's the only reason this franchise is relevant to the public eyes.

    Letting him walk for nothing would be even more insane. If he really wants to stay I'm all for it, but I would be surprised if he doesn't want to be on a super team at this point in his career.

    If the FO doesn't know his ambitions with his FA, it isn't really "letting" him walk.

    The Pacers will have an opportunity to make another extension offer to PG this offseason (technically, renegotiate and extend). It's going to be for a lot of money, with potentially a bonus on top if he makes all-NBA again (thanks to a new provision in the upcoming CBA). In similar situations last year, Harden and Westbrook signed extensions, and apparently Cousins has already committed to sign a similar offer with the Kings this offseason.

    If PG turns this offer down, then I'd say it would be fair for the Pacers to trade him.

    Sidenote, PG is actually having one of his best statistical years, highest FG% 3pt% and FT% of his career pretty much, rebound and assist points are down by about 1 in each category, but statistically wish he has improved in scoring consistency. He also doesn't get to the line as much anymore.

    Take this info as you want it.

    Another all star appearance and another step closer to making another all NBA team. If Paul qualities for the dpe there is no way he's leaving. Get ready to pay the man.
    Larry Bird qouted March 25th. 2015:

    Bird: I wanted to keep our group together because in the summer, if David and Roy opt out, we're back to zero, really. We don't have that much, so you leave your options open. If we did make a trade, I didn't want to take on a lot of contracts -- because that's what usually happens. Plus, I liked my guys. They're playing well. If we keep the core together and Paul comes back healthy, we'll be right back to where we were.

    It took a little while. But Memphis did it with Pau Gasol.

    Memphis doesn't manage their team like Boston does though. Boston collected too many bigs last season. They unloaded a lot of them for no return. David Lee, Sullinger, etc. Now it seems Jaylen Brown can hardly get on the court because of Gerald Green, Smart, and Bradley. Remember previously RJ Hunter was stuck there also.

    Paul George is staying. Him and Turner are the future

    As hard as I root for any mid-major player trying to break through in NBA, Hunter just wasn't good enough. He could not stick with shooting-desperate Bulls and he is not lighting the world in fire at NBDL-level. He was a risky pick which didn't work out. Nothing to do with "stock" of players.
