    Well there goes my thought of Monta having a break out Pacers year. Always put up big numbers on bad teams

    Figured the ship had long ago sailed on trading him, but assumed we'd go into the season and see if maybe an injury forced a team to get a backup replacement, or if a team was desperate for another bench scorer. At the very least, I thought we'd cut him late, like we did Stuckey, and just take the cap space next off-season.

    Either way, the money we eat won't matter, and it'll be good to move on.
    It's a new day for Pacers Basketball.

    BS. Over 11M next season and a player option for the season after for nearly 12M. He's not going to get that in another contract, so he's going to make us pay through the nose. No way does Herb handover 16-18M for a player that won't even be in uniform.

    For those of you who are cap experts how does a buyout work vs the salary cap? In other words are we still on the hook for the full amount of the original contract or when we buy out does it go off of the books then? Not that it matters but if we could shed his salary then it would go a little in making DC more palatable. (not really but I'm trying to find a bright side to that)

    Best news of the summer!
    "We've got to be very clear about this. We don't want our players hanging around with murderers," said Larry Bird, Pacers president.

    Small ball dominant guard who struggles on defense and to knock down open 3s? Doesn't sound like a GS guy to me.

    But he was a fan favorite, so there's that.

    Bench player nobody is saying he is going to replace Curry...

    Incorrect, sadly. Full contract will still count against our cap.

    They already re-signed Livingston to a decent contract to do that though.
