    Big mistake unless they made it for a non-basketball reason
    Lance is finally home. Whether he becomes our starting PG or he's 6th man, he's getting big minutes and he's here to stay. #llortontnia

    I liked Seraphin, but we cannot judge waiving a low level player w/o knowing the context with future moves and/or current player development.

    Pacers saved $2 million waiving him before August 1st....so maybe we needed that $2 million to sign someone else? I can't find it now but I thought I read a few days ago we had like $4.7 or $5 million in cap space. Let's offer Jamycael Green $6 million. I'd like to add Tony Allen too. Currently we have 13 players under contract.

    Seraphin @ $2 million was a bargain IMO. He can play

    This season is gonna suck. Why cut a player who has such minimal value? The front office is the worst for cutting him.

    Horribly stupid.


    Unless it turns out it was for a good reason. In that case, great move.

    I don't understand why anyone would feel any sort of "strong" about this decision. He was a back up big, who even knows where he would land on the depth chart. And this move sames the team some money on a guy that isn't doing anything for them for the future. Let the young guys run it. Jefferson would have been waived if we didn't have Monta. But we couldn't do both.

    Just remembered this report from 9 days ago about Barcelona wanting Seraphin. Maybe he asked the Pacers to let him go?

    ...
    Seraphin and the Blaugrana were discussing a potential deal last summer with the player himself admitting that his first choice was to sign with them. However, according to Seraphin, Barcelona ultimately didnít manage to empty some room in its roster and he went on to sign the Pacers.

    They might think they added enough size with Sabonis and Ike. I really don't agree and I don't want to see AlJeff on the floor under any circumstances.

    Not a fan of this. Seraphin was one of our few older players that I was perfectly fine with keeping.
