    I'll take anyone that can rebound at this point. Booker, Faried, Gibson. So tiring watching us give up extra possession after extra possession. Washington's not even that big outside Gortat.

    Signing both Monta & Stuckey in the 15 off season instead of making a solid back-up big a priority continues to haunt this team. Ed Davis got basically the same contract value as Stuckey did in Portland and would have been worth a few million more over three years in a Pacer uniform.

    Yeah a dependable six points & six rebounds in 20 minutes off the bench with a guy who could play either the 4 or the 5 would mean nothing to this group.....

    Where's Jeff Foster when you need him. He would make the Pacers contenders.

    I really want a starting big man to rebound and defend against post play and in a perfect world we'd keep Thad and move him to the bench. The only way this works for us would be if we send out as much long term salary as we bring in
    Otherwise we won't have the cap space to extend Paul and pay Teague. If we trade for Okafor we couldn't afford to keep him and extend Paul and I don't want Larry to mess with the cap space needed to pay Paul.
    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.

    Why did the Sixers release Hollis Thompson and why didn't another NBA team pick him up? He has decent size for a wing and is a career 37-38% three point shooter.

    I know the Spurs D-League signed him, but I would think that he could help an NBA team...like the Pacers.

    DeWayne Dedmon has a player option next year for 3.5 million. That would be a nice fit next year for that rebounding center next to Myles.

    Nah. I wouldn't give up a first round pick for a guy that will leave at the end of the season.

    That's a good point. I don't think Paul's raise will take up all of that money. Paul is due to make 19.5 next year, and if the cap comes in at projected the 35% max looks to be at 33.5 next year. So that's a 14 million raise for Paul, and there's 20 million between the salary cap and luxury tax.

    But those projections also have to deal with the difference between Teague's cap hold and his contract. If Teague gets the max, that's 13.3 million over his cap hold (26.5 total). Obviously he could also get less, but his final contract will likely be at least 6 million over his cap hold. So the Pacers are going to have set aside at least a couple million of their cap space to deal with Paul and Teague to ensure they don't go into the tax.
    This post made me stop and ask "Is PG worth almost twice the salary starting next year?" Do we expect him to up his game or leadership status by a factor of 1/3 or more?

    Even if he stayed, you're likely going to have to give him the max.

    It suggests more that he's currently woefully underpaid compared to the new NBA economic market. PG is making 18.3 million this year. Here are the players who signed for 17-21 million per year this year: Ryan Anderson, Kent Bazemore, Bizmack Biyombo, Luol Deng, Evan Fournier, Joakim Noah, Victor Oladipo.

    None of those players are even in the same stratosphere as PG. Would you rather have 2 of those guys or PG and a cheap player? I'd much rather take the latter option.

    I'd pay him the max over Milsap. Milsap will be signed until age 36! Good grief. I watched the Hawks/Blazers game last night and while Milsap is still a good player you can tell he's starting to trend down athletically.

    We aren't going to be paying either one of them the max or any other salary so no worries there.

    Ibaka is a UFA....there's still a good chance that he just bolts after this season.

    Unless the Pacers intended to throw 2 Near MAX to MAX Contract offers at Ibaka and Teague ( which I doubt ), it would have been fairly difficult to justify sending out a 1st for a Player that will go to the highest bidder. And YES....some Team is going to offer Ibaka a near MAX to MAX contract offer next season.

    Indeed. But if you're a person who hates the cold and the snow you're not gonna like Canada at all.
