    Glad they traded PG so fast so they could talk to free agents ...

    He's become pretty good. He's not a world class defender but he can shoot with the best of them.

    I will likely be wrong about a few of these moves at least, but I haven't liked a single thing Pritchard has done this summer.

    The impending Mike Dunleavy jr acquisition is gonna really floor you.

    That's a frail backcourt. Collison and Dipo is small.

    He's good, Darren is a good player. The problem is...

    Pritchard says we're in a youth movement. So adding a 29 year old point guard makes sense?
    We want guys who can defend, but Collison even as a point guard is undersized.

    Also we need shooting. Collison is not a pure shooter or a shooting guard. This eats up $10 mil of our $27 mil available. I hope or guess this means they've found a trade for Monta. That's about all this can mean.

    I'm not one of those people that hate Dunleavy, but it wouldn't surprise me. After the PG trade, I'm pretty much numb to Pacers ****ery this summer.

    Collison would be really good coming off the bench. Stephenson at starting pg.

    A star will be born if they do

    maybe it is a 1 + 1 deal. with the expectation that he opt's out of the 2nd year.

    There's no young point guard to take minutes from except Joe Young.

    They are aiming for the 8th seed pretty much like they did years ago with Flip Murray, DC is Flip Murray all over again.


    Man this sucks.

    Meh...a speedy PG in the starting 5 while letting Stephenson be the sixth man.


    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?

    Yeah, kinds reminds me of the Al Jefferson signing. Seems to be a player contradictory to what we're supposedly trying to build. I assume this is just because it's a relatively cheap deal.

    No issue with this. 2/$20 for a guy who can fill in as starting point guard while we lose as many games as possible. He's clearly not the long-term solution, so I'm not concerned.
    It's a new day for Pacers Basketball.
