    He mentioned George Hill now Ace likes him a lot.
    I like the fact that he said he wants guys with size and energy.

    I don't like the idea that he seems to be all in on overpaying Teague. But the idea of adding some high energy guys with size intrigues me.

    Edit: a lot

    Larry as the Pacers Queen of England is fine. A good figure head to roll out for stuff like the ASG or when talking to players.
    My goodness, how I wish I knew how to photoshop! lol

    They want to spend more, of course they are going to spend more if they keep Teague but that's it.

    He's not talking about Teague as a core guy. He's talking about him as a good piece at the right price.

    He's talking about Paul and Lance as core. Pretty telling, IMO.

    Also, I feel like you don't bump your budget if your plan is to move on from Paul.
    It sounds more to me like he's talking about the increased salary cap than Herb being willing to spend more.

    Pritchard definitely saying all the right things. Has me excited. No doubt that before Blazers were ravaged by injuries Pritchard was seen as the best in the biz. Hopefully he's also humbled a bit.

    Salary cap goes without saying, but to me the obvious implication was that they're gonig to pay Teague and also try to acquire another large salaried player. No guarantees that works obviously

    Vastly better as a statesman. Super smart to give LB lots of dap in decision making.

    Best of both worlds. Just watch. This is going to be good.

    I got that impression initially, especially when he was a bit hesitant/beating around the bush when asked if he wanted Teague back.

    But then he said "we are known to take care of our guys"

    Teague's market is us and what...the Knicks? Pacers need to play it really smart with him.

    Doesn't SA have cap space? Or am I mistaken.

    Also, Dallas has cap space as well.

    They do. I guess Teague in a Spurs uni could be pretty interesting, but I think Chris Paul will be a Spur.

    Dallas might, but I think they're happy with Yogi. Doubt they go spend big money on a guy like Teague.

    I felt like "we are known to take care of our guys" was sorta covering his tracks. I think he definitely doesn't want to overpay Teague, but he likes him enough to re-sign him and considers Jeff's desire to be here a good thing. You can't leave that answer at "we'll re-sign him if it's the right price," because it looks like you're gonna get cheap on him. You have to balance that with "we aren't afraid to pay our guys" and make it seem like it's a negotiation and not a take-it-or-leave-it. I won't be surprised if Jeff's not back. I will be surprised if he get overpaid.
    It's a new day for Pacers Basketball.

    I think that is quite a bit of an underestimation of Teague's value.

    Well yeah! Just meant that you were stretching their words a bit.

    But hey, I'd love for the team to get a legit number two guy on this roster.

    Cp3 to SA? Hmm, now that would be something.

    I think Dallas (Cuban) loves Yogi, but is he going to be a long term starter? Idk.

    Man am I ready for FA already lol

    Best news of the conference: I heard a clear strategy about transitioning the team to a style that makes sense and has been known to work.

    That strategy almost definitely means:

    Moving Lance to the starting lineup.

    Moving Thaddeus to the 6th man role.

    Bringing in another big into the starting lineup.

    I can get behind that.

    Problem is- who can we target as our Big in the starting lineup?

    I'm fairly certain Hans will be replacing Allen on the roster. Would love Lou back but his back is done.
